Lifting the Veil of Idiocy

I write from the hip, pull no punches, and don't expect everyone to love what I say. In recent days, a slew of "Anonymous" posters, using the anonymity of the internet to grow a set have decided to bombard my blog with asinine and stupid comments. Some focused on my child, some focused on how "mean" I am, while others just being pissy that I don't believe in their little book of stories and their cloud guy. So while I swore I would never do this, I am pulling the option to post comments anonymously from my blog.

Mind you, this is not because I only want to hear positive comments from my friends, rather it will force these people who are so keen on being "brave" and "ripping me a new one" to actually reveal their names and who they are.

This will weed out the chickenshits, the cowards, and the spineless, because we all know, it is very easy to tell someone off when they don't know who you are.

So I am now "lifting the veil of idiocy" and removing the "anonymous" option from comments. If you are indeed so keen and so intent on telling me off, then you will have to grow a pair and input your name.

Hi J! Thanks for reading!

I think this is a good idea. I prefer to "see' who is writing comments, even when they are good.

Chickenshit is my favorite word you know. I wish I could figure out how to put a picture.....I don't want Carla to get mad at me because she can't see me....LOL!!

Carla said...

Jaque - yeah, no profile with a link or anything!? WTH?! :)

I rarely get an anonymous comment, in fact I should check to see if I allow them. I've had a couple that were nasty and I simply delete them. I'm all for disagreement, though I don't get much, but I don't appreciate it when people say something just to be nasty and then run away.

Alessia, I wanted give you this one verse to pull out of your hat to all of the "Christians" that come here and talk down to you and your family, and do nothing but cause hatred and pain... I think just throwing it out at them next time should do the trick, as they tend to forget that it is even in the Bible.

Romans 14:13
"Let us not therefore judge one another any more: but judge this rather, that no man put a stumbling block or an occasion to fall in his brother’s way."

Alessia said...

Excellent quote. I always like to throw a little Matthew 7:1 (KJV) at them as well: "Judge not, that ye be not judged."

If you believe that the entire bible is truth, then you cannot throw away important parts like those... we believe that it is a guidebook...example, stories with morals included, geneology al mixed up..I lik eto think of it like someone keeping a notebook and writing everything they think of, then passing it on to the next, then the next, then it was compiled and published ...

All of it, is however important- we could learn a lesson from it... and that is where lots of believers get it wrong.. they use it like a rule book, instead of learning from it.
