Is it just me or do you also get comments left by anonymous people who says mean and/or hurtful things? They don't leave a way to reply to them because they hide behind the anonymous button.
This does not happen very often. In fact, since I've started my blog over a year ago, I've only had this happen twice. But, when it does it causes you to feel a bit violated. Like someone comes in your house, slaps you in the face and then runs away. You don't know who they are because they hide behind a mask.
Or have you ever gone to a blog and read something that upset you or totally bashed your beliefs and morals so you leave remark. You don't hide behind the anonymous button as you feel like what you have to say is worthy of a debate or discussion. Then the person writes you an email and tells you they have "rules" on their blog. The rule seems to be that unless you agree with what they have posted then you can not leave a comment. What?
Yes this happened to me. Someone posted several posts about how Christians are destroying the world. How Christians are taught to torture and kill. That because of Christians, the world is in the mess it's in today.
They claim there was a "study" done to back up the statements.
I posted that I disagreed with what they said and asked for a link to the "study". Of course I never did the link. Only told to keep my opinions to myself or I would be blocked.
What is with people and their hiding behind the computer? Why do people feel it's OK to say so many rude, hateful and disrespectful things just because you are not there in person? I don't get it?
I know there are many different people out there in Blogland and we don't all agree on the same things or believe in the same things. Yet, posting things with a lack of class or just to hurt a group of people is wrong.
Oh well, I guess it takes all kinds of people to make this world an interesting place.
I was just wondering if any of you have come across this behavior too, here in Blogland. I think it's sad and these people seem to want to take away the fun in blogging.
I know the best thing to do is to just ignore these people and I do but, sometimes words can really cut you deeply.
