I certainly get my fair share of hate mail and comments, and for the most part I ignore it and ban the commenter. I’ve had to think about posting this for a while, because really, mean people don’t deserve the attention it takes for my fingers to type these words.
My sister and I very much share many of the same political and religious views and her ability to express and defend those views thoughtfully and intelligently are far greater than mine, which is why I am grateful when she frequently steps into my comments and defends them on my blog. Particularly on the recent Obama Speech post. Obama has my vote – but Amy daily and attentively inhales every magnificent word he says and probably knows more about his views than 99% of the American population.
If I post something on my blog I completely respect one’s decision to defend and support their beliefs if they are different than mine. And as much as I may not believe in what they are saying, I most certainly respect and support fe-lady’s and spandex-king’s right to express their views about Obama’s speech just as they respect another’s right to defend it. It’s a little thing I like to call “being a grown up.”
But I draw the line when it comes to being mean. Especially to my family! If your only defense to reading a blog post is to go and make disparaging and hurtful personal attacks, because you can’t defend yourself, then you have no business commenting in the first place.
So if you are the are the Fast Runner Chick loser, with the fake email, that said this wretchedly mean thing this on my sister’s blog:
You and your “Obama thing” are disgusting!
Also, you are way TOO FAT to run! STOP!! IT has done you no good!!!!
I hope this post gives you the attention you are looking for and I hope reading it doesn’t take too much time out of your day to stop kicking puppies or put kittens in the blender.
Now, I’m going to put this out of my head, as we are about to take Kenza to Medieval Times to eat chunks of meat and watch people get whacked with swords. It’s a good thing to do on Easter, Jesus would approve. Then after that, I’m going to sit in the spa naked, read the Bible for Atheists, while I wait for Matt Damon and Jon Stewart to come over.
And then I’ll watch the Obama speech, again.
