What would you do?
I’ve committed myself to writing more often, and as you bloggeristas know, the more you post, the more people will tend to visit your site.
That’s a great bonus. Most of the time.
The other day someone new linked to a post I had written in December and, as I normally do, I visited their blog and started to read their content.
OMFG! What a load of hate-filled ranting and raving I found there! I can’t believe people spend so much time spewing serious hate online. There were several posts each day dedicated to hating various groups because of their ethnicity or just because they were perceived (in his head) to be linked to that ethnicity. To be honest, he took specific aim at one group in particular. It was as if he spends all day holed up in a room typing away furiously with his thesaurus by his side, just in case his mind couldn’t form another anti-Semitic word or another adjective for Barack Obama.
I guess he hadn’t seen my face or I must have written a damn good post 🙂
I kept reading and flipping through his posts because I just kept thinking that it was must have been some form of satire. But it wasn’t. I was waiting for the punch line, but it never showed up. Apparently he really meant everything he wrote down.
I won’t bother to promote his blog by putting the name here, but what was most interesting was that, for the myriad of posts he wrote, there were no comments and no “likes” (except for one) on any of his posts as far back as I would allow myself to read. Surely if you write 100 posts in one month, someone must like something you wrote? Perhaps he deleted all the comments?
As the link (pingback) was awaiting my approval, I just deleted it so it didn’t link to my post and I got the hell outa there.
He must have a lot of time of his hands. From the moment I wake up in the mornings I’m like a tornado until bedtime. Every day is packed with deadlines and I still need to find the time for family and this little sideline called blogging.
Who the heck has the time to write 1,000-word posts everyday full of hate from your own conjecture? And nobody “likes” them? You better put your time to better use, man.
