Anonymous Commenter Strikes Again

When you comment on this blog, the comments land right into my email box. That makes it easy for me to reply to your comment via email. Alas, some of you don't leave an email address, so I can't reply to you easily. Others of you choose complete anonymity, which I can understand, especially if you intend to insult me in such an incoherent manner.

You have to wonder: do some people just have too much time on their hands?

Seriously. This is what "Anonymous" said:

mel you sound like an uptight bitch,sounds to me by you writing this your looking and needing everyone to tell you that your right.i think your jealous that your sister cares less for trying to please everyone and shes ok with it.sounds to me like she leads a very interesting and fascinating life and your stuck in suburbia,with a pastor for a husband,little kids and your bored and upset with your choices in life.growup and stop acting like a child except people for who they are and stop being jealous and the moment you admit you are jealous the quicker you can heal and do something about it.ps and as for her not answering your emails back on such subjects....mel she probably just does not have time to cater to your obvious disection of every incident,i would love to hear her side of the story,and why did you remove olives post?

I have to know: is there a shortage of periods and no one told me? Because if so, I'll just have to use exclamation points from now on!! and are we all out of capital letters? because i will eliminate them, too, if i need to!! conserve periods and capitals!! unite!! we all stand together against the sensless waste of punctuation and upper case letters!!

Well, I have noticed a shortage of periods, but I was just assuming that was on account of my age...

I'm pretty short on capital also.

What DO these 'anonymous' angry people know about 'healing'?

I say "ANGRY ANONYMOUS PERSON heal thyself!"

And do we "except" people or "accept" people for who they are? Apparently Anonymous person is the exception and cannot accept you for who you are...I say, if you don't like the blog get out of the blogroom! I for one like reading your blog - it is one of the highlights of my day! Thank you, Mel, for your insight into life! It's a breath of fresh air!

awww Mel, the twit who wrote the annonymous comment was just plain venomous. Beyond the basics of grammar, correct word usage and punctuation, ignorant comments are just so uncool. Basic functionality of blog comments are beyond this commenter as well, because Olive's comment was removed by the author, not the blog owner.

Your blog is a slice of life that many of us enjoy sharing. You bring your family, yourself and your life alive for us with your words, your feelings, your humor.

That's a really angry and inappropriate post. BTW, not all anonymity is intentional. I was anonymous in the past (on the race issue) because I thought I needed to have some sort of blogger identity to sign in, I only recently realized that wasn't the case.

Should we conserve paragraph breaks also?

It's usually the juveniles who can't punctuate. They think it's cool when they should really be terribly embarrassed. It's a point of pride, you see. Just now, for instance, I forgot, yet again, how to spell embarrassed, but I took the time to look it up, and it doesn't embarrass me to admit it.

Sounds to me like your sister has somehow come across your blog - maybe SHE is commenting "anonymously"

Then again, I'm always thinking in conspiracy theories.

Karri beat me to my comment so I'll add a little something. Maybe anonymous is like your sister and you hit a nerve.

Some people apparently have a lot of time on their hands.

But not enough time, it seems, to learn how to write properly.

I was gonna post anonymously but I guess I'll have the courage to say, For the LOVE! Get a life, and a shift key buddy.

To a certain extent, the comment is correct. We do need people to tell us that we are right. We also need feedback when we are not right. Weneed a sounding board while we sometimes figure out which we are (right or not).
It also helps to have that feedback coherent, gramatically correct and respectful....that post was none of the above.
On he brighter side - at least you have some comments, LOL.

I am a new reader but I just wanted to tell you that I love your blog and you are right some people have too much time on their hands. Some use it for good and others for evil, shame on them!

I wouldn't even give the jerk the opportunity to get his comment posted let alone repeated with your post. Tell the jerk to FO, oh. I forgot your a pastors wife. In that case tell the jerk to buzz off and don't give him/her any more air space.

Perhaps the problem is with us who comment here: if we cannot communicate to the individual who chooses (wisely I would say) to conceal his/her identity in anonymity, then this person cannot be expected to fully understand that there are those who read your blog with the appreciation and respect it deserves.
To this end, I would like to use this opportunity to try and bridge this communication rift; please bear with me as I attempt to reach to this poor soul in a manner I hope will be understood by the intended recipient.
Ahem:

deer Annonnymouse:

I mean, really, who reads archive postings from May anyway? Unless you have vested interest in the person who wrote them...

I second what pretty much every other commenter had to say. Some people are just idiots and have WAY too much time on their hands. There is no excuse for rudeness, nor for that many grammar and punctuation errors. I loved your reply.

I think only very *clever*, *smart* people fail to use capital letters and punctuation when they type. It is very difficult to veto the pinky finger when it reaches for the "caps" key on the left. Ditto on not using the middle finger on the right hand for the comma.

Sometimes, that middle finger just wants to pop up!

Nothing nothing worse than a heckler who can't spell and/or punctuate. If you're going to heckle, you should always at least make an attempt at sounding smarter than who you're heckling.

(Not that I condone heckling... I'm just sayin'....)

I want my comments to come to my mailbox! I'd do a better job at answering...

i don't use capitals, and i STILL think mr/mrs anonymous is stinky. who's stinky? anonymous is stinky! that's right!

i think the nasty comments are the best ones; like the first rejection letter for an aspiring author, the milestone is what counts. congratulations to you, mel, on reaching such a wide audience that someone disagrees with you. diversity is the spice of life, eh? and you rock.

one thing though. mr/mrs anonymous, if you're going to get stinky, don't hide in the dark. come on out, stinky! embrace your stink!

whew. i think i'm stinkin' by association...

Good old Anons. They are funny, usually insecure people who just want to bitch at someone.

No offense, but after reading the first two sentences she wrote, I was yawning. Boring, useless stuff she wrote :)

David says: there are lots of periods available but a serious shortage of commas. Proust used them all in "Remembrances of Things Past" There are periods to spare. I'm very sorry about your sister. We choose our friends for their qualitites, but our families are thrust upon us. Lost my wonderful brother to cancer last year. I miss him often 'cause he was the big brother I could share anything with after our parents died.
