Hey pals! Well, some folks are at it again on Amazon.com, treating a television show like it’s their God or something. For the life of me, I can’t get over how passionate people are over things that are produced in such an assembly-line manner as a sit-com, and I guess maybe I’ll never fully understand it. I mean, I love the show “It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia,” but if someone gave it a shitty review on Amazon, I think I’d read it, disagree, and then move on to look for something that I’m going to buy. Isn’t that what most people do?
Anyway, this is, by and large, a repost of the previous post I made, but at the end of the article, I’ve included the comments for my review (and my responses to them). This stuff is, by and large, fun to me, but I have to admit that the thinly-veiled personal insults do creep under my skin. But hey: when a person is nothing more than a disembodied collection of words on a major website, it’s pretty easy to disregard the human’s feelings, isn’t it? Of course it is: I’m sadly as guilty of it as anyone.
And that’s where this repost of this thing ultimately takes me: I need to take a look at how I treat people, too. These people are using ad hominem attacks on me, probably so nonchalantly that they don’t even recognize they’re insulting a real person. And I do that in my day-to-day around the Internet, too.
I don’t like that I do that. When I insult a person, I want to be deliberate, sincere, and I want it to have some fucking passion! I’m not into just passing around insults like some sort of petty blogger cunt! I’m a severe, direct blogger cunt, damn it!
And that’s real, ’cause I’m Bee-BO!…shit. She’s gonna kill me for that one. Anyway, enjoy the whole thing if you haven’t, and please enjoy the comments these folks left me. I know I did!Read the rest of this entry »
