The Dark Side of Blogging
Several of you have emailed me or reposted your comments concerned that they did not post. A bit of explanation. There is something on Blogger called comment moderation. It allows me to review your comments before they appear. Depending on my schedule, this can take minutes or hours - I don't check my email every minute.
Most of the comments I reject are spam - generally foreign websites embedding their website links.
Then there are the licentious ones like where do I hide my red silk panties and do I wear crotchless pantaloons when I posted pics of my closet. Pantaloons? I will leave the rest in this category to your imagination.
Or the person who commented on my tandoori orange bathroom that I just lost $10,000 when I go to sell my house and she thought I had good taste but she was wrong.
Or the person who told me I needed to change myself for GG.
Or the person asking if there had been an investigation into the death of my husband. I ask you, could anything be nastier or in worst taste?
Then there are the negative jerks commenting on my taste - one commenter on my HG palm lamps this week left a big X - FAILED. Blogs are free, if you don't like my taste, find a blog closer to your own style, but don't unleash your negativity here.
And when I posted on Covid it was meant for people to be less judgmental and more humane in their interactions and I got a few crazies wanting to be divisive.
The dark side of social media in general is the ability to be unaccountable for such nonsense. I refuse to have you read this garbage and will not have it on my blog. So if your lovely and thoughtful comment does not post immediately just chill, it will in due time, assuming it is not underwear related - LOL.
