I HAVE A TROLL
I have a troll.
Does anyone else have one of these?
I guess I should be honored that someone would take a few minutes out of his life to occasionally read my posts and take even a few more additional minutes to poke me with attacks on his perception of my values, or tell me how boring and predictable my posts are.
I thought I shook him by using comment moderation so his annoying comments would not see the light of blog.
No sooner did I take off moderation then he had another ridiculous opinion and this one I made the mistake of reading before deleting. I thought maybe he was offering up an almost apology as he had once years before.
I’m not sure why his comments get to me. Perhaps I have thin skin. He thinks my posts are boring and predictable. Maybe. I don’t post to change the world. I post for family, friends and a few other bloggers. I enjoy it, it is a hobby. You sort of have to go out of your way to even find my posts, I am pretty easy to ignore.
I try and be eclectic. I post on relationships, nostalgia, dogs, fishing, music, tomato growing, children and grandchildren, TV, or any stuff that happens to effect my life. I used to post on politics, but that is a pit with sharp stakes waiting on the bottom.
I used to follow the troll’s posts. He posts everything from very partisan political opinions where he mostly preaches to his own personal choir, to cold weather in Montana to…well that is pretty much it, politics and weather.
Anyway, if my troll is reading this I really wish you would stop. Yes your comments when I read them do bother me, does that bring you pleasure?
Maybe I do have thin skin.
Maybe it is because I feel sad for someone who bothers to take the time to tell someone they know nothing about, that they do not like them or like their posts. Maybe it is both.
Kind of pitiful. Just as pitiful I guess as me responding, so this will be my last response. Knock yourself out and comment. Not sure what you expect to accomplish, but go on. Perhaps if some comments get through, some of my almost 65 readers will agree with you and my powerful voice will be less effective.
Way to joust at my tiny windmill you brave rebel you!
