The Ugly Side of Blogging: Annonymous Comments

I will mention there are a few negatives to blogging.

For me, it's not the privacy thing, but I tend to be an open book kind of a person.  Anything I put on the blog is free game.  I do, shockingly, self edit a few of the things I wish I could post, but can't -- or, I should say that I shouldn't.  I will say that sometimes an acquaintance will bring up something I said on my blog and I can't figure out how they would know that... but that's just me being dumb.  I enjoy that people read my blog.

I HATE anonymous comments.  Not the spammers, I figure there's a special place in hell for them, and thankfully now Blogger deletes those already.

I just hate people who put rude things and won't even attach their name to it.

I sometimes consider leaving anonymous comments on people's blogs, but I always talk myself out of it.  If I can't put my name to something, I shouldn't be saying it at all.

I wish the rest of the world felt that way.

I actually don't mind comments totally saying I'm wrong.  Sometimes I am {really, did I just say that?} but I like to know when I'm wrong and fix my thinking when necessary.

I just hate people who stir up controversy just to do that.  We call them trolls.

And I'm fairly sure their place in hell will burn hotter than the spammers, but that's just me guessing.

Anyone care to contend that?


  1. Amen, sister.

    Anon commenters are no fun.

  2. I agree, if you are willing to say it, put your name to it.

  3. I rarely get those since I don't allow anon comments, but lurkers bug me. I mean, I can see who is reading from what state & figure out who it is and I don't care if they don't want to comment often, but once a year pop in and say-"HI! I'm having fun being a voyeur in your life."


Hi, I love you. You read my blog.
What did you think?
I would love to know what you think!
Before you post anonymously though, think if it is something you would say in person. I always sign my comments with my name. I hope you will do.
