I’ve published this blog for eight years, and I’m still shocked and amazed at how touchy and sensitive some readers can be… I mean here we are supposedly, prepared for the worse that TEOTWAWKI can throw our way, but can’t even deal with another commenter who happens to post a comment that disagrees with them or their view of how they think things are or should be.
All I can say is good grief on a stick, grow up and toughen up. Believe me the world isn’t going to get any easier and if you can’t deal with a troll or someone who has a different view than you do and tells you about it, without pouting off mad, how do you expect to make it when the electricity hasn’t been on for six months and your pantry is empty…
Looking through the comments and my emails it looks to be the same 3-4 readers that are constantly, getting their feeling hurt, emailing me and demanding that I blacklist other commenters and delete any comments that disagree with them, or telling me what I should and should not post because they personally don’t agree and then threatening to leave the blog if I don’t get it done right now…
The sad thing about it is that when I go look at the comment that they are falling to pieces over, I’m usually left scratching my head trying to figure out why they were offended in the first place… It’s crazy…
Folks, that’s why I put the report comment button on the blog with every comment posted, some of you will remember that I used to moderate all comments, but then decided to give readers the option of having most of their comments appear instantly and to be self-moderated, but a few are getting so sensitive that this is no longer possible.
I’ve seen so much of this recently, that I’ve decided too temporarily (probably permanently) moderate all comments before posting, so no one gets their feeling hurt in the future. I hope this helps. Thanks.
