WELL ANONYMOUS I WOULD LIKE TO REPLY.
"You are a loser." - You're fat! Also, it's a little ironic that you're calling me a loser, yet you're wasting valuable wanking time commenting on my blog.
"Get a life." - If I didn't have one, there wouldn't be so many haiku! Whee
"I would not have read this..." - hey, thanks for reading! I always like new readers.
"...if it had not been forwarded to me by a chain of people taking the piss out of you." -
"I had to comment because it irritated me so much."- I bet you shout at the television. "That's not a real antique!!"
"Sexual pasts, however interesting you think they are, should be kept less public." - In your opinion. In my opinion, snippy comments - brought on by haiku, which you aren't talented enough to write, about sexual encounters, which you aren't attractive enough to have - should also be kept less public. But, hey, just my opinion.
"And the haikus are not even clever." - I refuse to have my art critiqued by someone who doesn't know the correct plural of haiku.
"People need to think twice about blogs.....if you want to have any semblence of a reputable career in the future." - People need to think twice about leaving nasty anonymous comments from their work computers, for much the same reason. Also, you misspelt 'semblance.'
Quite seriously, I have no problem with angry/irritated/offended/outraged comments. What I do not like is anonymous comments! Name or GTFO. Andrea suggests not allowing anon comments, but then I know a few of you regular readers don't have Blogger accounts or prefer to be anonymous, so we operate on the honour system here, people!
Which is why it's so nice that I have a little tracking thing on this site, so that I can inform Anoymous's employer that perhaps they have not been spending their company time quite as productively as they should have been.
"Dear *boss* -
I feel obliged to inform you that this afternoon at 1.19pm I received a highly offensive message on my personal website. This message was posted from a computer broadcasting ISP address xxx.xxx.xx, which is identified as belonging to *your company.*
This unfortunate incident has completely put me off using your service in future, and I will be advising my friends and colleagues to do likewise.
Seriously, though, can someone please forward me the email? And if you're here from the email, hi! Tell your friends!
EDIT: a small child just came to the door selling fundraising chocolate. I bought some and asked what it was for. Answer? "Aw, Miss, it's for my little brother to go to handicap school." Shouldn't they send these kids out with a parent or something?
