Over the time that I’ve been blogging, I’ve seen a number blog suicides.
One of the latest to fall in this adversity is the blog by Shaz and Aidil – two bloggers whom I have profound respect for the community efforts that they have started. I think that its such a shame to see them pulling the plug. The reason to this is because of an increase of unwarranted and callous comments from judgemental random visitors for one of their posts.
Different people have their own opinions. That is their perogative. But at the same time, I believe that opinions should be presented in a constructive manner instead of attacking the person and being hurtful. But the reality is, that a number of people find joy in attacking others while there are some who dont seem to fathom how sharp their words could be. Most of these will be entertaining fodder for some.
I am glad that I have not reached this threshhold as of yet. Not to say that I have not had any attacks on me before, the first few times when I received these type of comments, I fought hard to control my emotions. But throughout the years, I’ve mellowed up and pretty much take these type of comments with a grain of salt. Besides, its much easier on the heart to concentrate on the positive 🙂
Have you ever had hate comments in your blog before? What would you do in this situation?
p.s For future hate comments, I’m going to give these people my scary evil look. ROAR!
