1.) Am I going to turn off the comments? Nope
2.) Am I going to use comment moderation? Nope
3.) Am I going to stay here and do my thing? Yep
4.) Are the following two things the same?
A reader joining conversation and a reader making this comment on my last post...To:The flat a** bobble head b***h that runs this lame a** blog , Karma is coming for your a** ugly b***h!!! Ummm, that would be a Nope, those two things are not the same.
5.) Does conversation involve something more than cussing and making threats?
Here? At this blog? Yep
6.) Do I think unlocking the silence is only for
those who believe just as I do? Nope
7.) Do I think it's sad that some people can only unlock
their silence by trying to tear me down? Yep
8.) Does it make me angry? Nope, mostly it just makes me laugh...then I feel sad for the angry little elf.
9.) Do I find it utterly amazing that some people come here just to spew hate at me? Not really amazing. More interesting than anything. Kinda makes me want to do some social experiments. Personally, I have no need to troll around for blogs, just waiting for someone to write something that I don't like, so that I can call them names and declare their doom. That floating someone else's boat? I don't so much get it.
10.) Do I welcome those who may not agree with all that I say? Of course.
11.) Should readers be surprised when Snarky Mama stands up for her daughter? Are you a parent? If you are, then it shouldn't surprise you at all. Wouldn't you do the same for your child? You should.
12.) Should readers be surprised when Little Brother has his say as well? Do you have a brother ten years younger who adores you? If so then it shouldn't surprise you at all. Nope, he and Snarky Mama have just as much right to unlock the silence as anyone else.
13.) Should readers be surprised when Snarky Friends reply to nastiness? Nope. I have some of the most loyal, intelligent, fiesty, compassionate friends a person could ever dream of.
Again, I'm not turning off or moderating comments. But, be advised. Most who visit this blog consider discussion to be far more than foul language and insults. I understand that isn't the case everywhere, so you may be more comfortable unlocking your silence on another blog. Here, we understand that opinions vastly differ, based on personal life experiences. We enjoy learning from others. But, we also believe that conversation, among those who may not see eye to eye, does not have to include venom.
Coming up....a fun little quiz that is sure to make you laugh.
