Filler Update!

Oh's been awhile. Once again, it's no wonder people stop checking up on this. I seem to forget to update or some such. So, I still don't have much in the way of a topic, but I desperately do need to update, so it does not appear as if I've completely abandoned this place. Au contraire, mes amis. I check up on it every once in awhile, when I think I have an idea only to find it doesn't have a lot of substance or is just lamestown.

Anywho. This has to do with this specific blog. Why the hell would someone think it's cool to come on here and post a comment anonymously, slamming me? What is to be accomplished there? I mean, if it's constructive or if you have a counterpoint, it's one thing, but to just straight up insult me is stupid. Then to not even have the courtesy to sign the comment or own up to it.

For one, I moderate comments here. Blogspot sends me an email letting me know that someone wishes to comment. So I get to preview all of them before they are actually published. Am I going to publish a comment that only amounts to an insult? No.

Again, please sign your comments in some way shape or form. That is at least readily recognizable to me. Not some vague reference to something that happened once, I'm sorry but I sometimes sleep and other events occur. I forget stuff. So far all the comments that are up, I've been able to recognize who it was, so good job on that.

I take that back, with the exception of the person that called me 'Zombie boy.' Those comments still got published, because they were cool, but I have no idea who you are. So if you'd like to claim such comments, have fun. (Although you probably won't read this, so, eh. Whatever works).

I mean, seriously. You imediately have the ability to know who I am, and it's supremely frustrating when I can't figure out who is wanting to comment on a post of mine. Unless you are really someone I don't know. In that case, welcome to my blog! I have no idea how you found it or why you find it interesting since I'm not forcing you to read it at gun point! Enjoy your stay!

Anywho...this all leads to a bigger problem. The great fad of anonymous (mean) commenting on the internet. It happens all over the place. It also really needs to stop. People need to be given some kind of permanent name or tag online, so we can pick these bastards off or something. I try not to let such comments get to me, but it's really frustrating when it finally penetrates your own blog. I'm sure that'll lead to at least one or two attack comments happening at random, or from people I know trying to be funny.

SPOILER ALERT: You aren't funny.

Yeah, updated!

You're a douchebag, and I'm not afraid to say it. Also, post more on SMBC, or I will be forced to call you a doody-breath as well.

Sam :) yay for another post. I've missed reading them! I agree with your point on anonymous, brusque commenting that is done all over the internet. It really doesn't make much sense to me, unless you consider the human need for superiority. My wish would be that by the time one is able to understand the ideas of blogging and mass communication, one might have developed self-control enough to suppress the need for superiority. However, this is not so. To the generic anonymous, ill-mannered commenter: grow up a bit.
