Losing Your Blog Comment Virginity

I've been blogging for over a year now and today was my first introduction to some very serious hateful comments. The aura is gone. Exposing your life to the world opens you up to risk. I'm still willing to take the risk, but the naivety, the blush and wonder of it is gone.

Nevertheless, let's get something straight. Let me set some ground rules. We can agree to disagree. You can feel free to express your opinion on a subject as will I. However, if you decide to make it personal and resort to name calling - ("dumb ass", "Ho", "delusional" to name just a few) and on top of that do all of it anonymous - I am willing and able to bring it. I will track you, I will reverse track you IP address to your home, your job, to where ever. I will ban you, I will nip that nonsense in the bud direct like. I am not going to play with this or even let it escalate to some crazy stalker/hater mess. Uniqua will jump up and open palm slap the shyat outta the first mouth she comes upon.

As a neophyte to this kind of hate, Uniqua took over and she exchanged words. Luckily, I was able to get her under control and get some good mentorship in this arena from someone who has been at this adventure much longer than I. God Bless you and thank you for your advice, help and action.

My daddy always told me to pay no mind to to when people talk about you. They wouldn't be talking about you if you weren't doing something right. There will always be haters. But don't get it twisted...my daddy also told me that in life & business, never wound your opponent/competition (in this case haters), "put em down for good, baby. That way they can't get back up to hurt you later." I will bring down the thunder - don't let the smile fool ya. As my husband is fond of saying..."Careful, she may be beautiful, but she does know how to kill."

I welcome your comments. I would love to be getting more. I welcome your opinion and if you disagree with something - your constructive criticism. Let's chat without the nastiness.

As for my anonymous commenter...I accept your apology. I can't imagine what I could have possibly said in any of my posts that would bring out the kind of venom that I experienced, but I hope that you and your loved one are okay. God Bless.

  2. That was just bizarre and ridiculous! Whenever I see crazy anonymous comments, I think of crank calls we used to make as kids. I assume that the people who make such comments are also children. Twelve year olds have a funny sense of humor, LOL!
