Dude, it's the pen that is mightier than the sword. Not a crayon.
Gini....this is why I heart you so. So very, very, very much.
I agree with you that the random trolls just show you've made it in the blogosphere. The only time I can think of, that this bothered me, was in relation to your hubby's journal.
I had written a comment in his journal one night, when I was in bad
shape, and way doped up on meds. Around the same time, I had written a very personal and heartfelt post in my own journal.
A couple of hours later, I went back and re-read what I'd written in theferrett
's journal. And I realized that what I had written was so poorly phrased as to be nearly incomprehensible. So, I commented on my OWN comment, and mentioned that it was terribly written.
I went to bed, and when I got up a couple of hours later, a bunch of spineless idiots had come to MY journal, and commented on how poorly written MY post was. They picked out sentences that to this day, I can find nothing grammatically wrong with, and blown them to shreds. I mean, I guess it's a compliment to your your hubby that he has un-solicited minions, but it bugged the hell out of me.
Ferrett totally defended me, saying that it was stoopid of them, and (this is the part I thought was WAY cool) that if I HAD
thought his post was terribly written, I had the right to say so.
It wouldn't have gotten me so much, except that it was such a personal post I'd written in my journal. But, that is the danger with posting publicly. Also, it would have been nice if they were blasting me for making a point, instead of them being too dumb to realize that I was responding to MY OWN COMMENT. I didn't touch a nerve because of what I said, but instead because of who they thought I was criticizing.
