My First Hate Email  

I received an email from someone (who didn't leave a name or anything) saying they are getting tired of seeing all my reviews and thinks my whole theme sucks.

To The Coward Who Sent the Email:
Opinions are like assholes, everybody's got one and here's mine......
If you don't like my reviews, my theme, me, or anything else; then you can just take that mouse and shove it......no, no, no.....you can just click on that big red X and close the damn screen. This is my blog and I'll do with it what I want.

I apologize to my regular readers for the potty mouth.

What next?

    I'm trying to remember what my first hate mail/comment was. I was very upset, I don't know why the net makes people feel like they can say things that they would never say in real life.

    Since then, I just smile when I get the comments, it just means that people are actually reading what I'm writing.

    I agree, negative means that you are having an influence. Take all negative as a positive... Become a STAR! LOL...

    Seriously, I love the way people criticize anonymously - I mean, the web is huge, funny enough some people always bump into websites they hate !

    I have one word for people who criticize anonymously...COWARD who basically have no friends, they are IBD's (Internet Basement Dwellers)who's only enjoyment they get is to try and create havoc.

    Zhu & breezie~~They obviously don't have anything better to do or perhaps weren't loved enough;)

    And I call them assholes but IBD's will work..it's much more tasteful than my pick..lol.

    I don't understand why people would bother having a go at other people's writings on their blog!

    If they are tired of it and think your blog sucks, then just leave and be done with it. Surely there are plenty more blogs to read out there that will suit his/her taste.

    We can't please everybody. This blog surely pleases me and more, so I ain't complaining. If at one point I end up hating this blog (don't worry, no chance of that. Just a point for illustration!) I'd simply stop coming and read. Simple, no?

    There's a fine line between giving 'constructive feedbacks' and plain hatemail.

    For every person who hates your blog, there are hundreds more that likes it. It's no big loss. I like your blog, so there!

    (As if me liking it matters, hahaha!)

    Jackie~~Thanks so much!!

    Gloria~~Thank you for the kind words about my blog.

    I don't normally respond in such a manner but I've had a bad week and a half. I, too, find it hard to believe that people would take the time to write up some hate mail, fill out the contact me form, and send it...I mean, geez, go to the next blog if you don't like it. Anyhoo, I'm over it. There are more important things in this world to worry about;)

    First, I happen to like your reviews. Keep em coming. Second, I've gotten things on mine like "you write like a kid." Hmmm, maybe so. But I love to rite lik dat and Im gonna. So there. LOL!!!

    Having been on a few email lists that had a couple of flame wars, comments like those do not bother me anymore. I'm sorry you got one but on the other hand, I have found out that if you get those, it means that you're getting somewhere. All right!!! (Ain't it bootiful to have a delete command!)

    Thanks Jaz! I riyat lika hick but I don't give a dang. I'm gonna keep ona doin' it...lol. Okay, I tried to mix it up there;)

    I know there are idiots out there and I'm not about to let them get me down! I like my theme and think my reviews are pretty good too.
    I love the delete and wish I had a better tracking system 'cause then I'd a tracked em' down and hung em' out to dry. Man, I think I'm gettin' tired or something:)

    I get it all the time because I guess I write stuff that pisses off certain groups of people some of the time. I usually record their IP addresses if I can, just in case.
