Anonymous Rant

What is up with the Anonymous Assholes? I don't understand why people even take the time to leave comments like this:

"I just stumbled across your blog. To be honest, you sound like a fuckin' asshole. One of those princesses in an apartment building whose shit doesn't stink. Your shit may not stink but your personality sounds like it does."

Seriously, who are these people, anyway? I know I'm not the first person to get comments like this, but it really is annoying. And dammit, I'm going to vent about it. Very few of us ever actually fight back at these anonymous commenters. IMHO, it's gone on long enough. I'm tired of ignoring them.

I'm really wondering what is the point of taking the time to say something mean and undeserved to a stranger. And why they are always anonymous. Even if they used their blogger name, I still don't know who in the hell they are. These people are pussies. Anyone who is afraid of me must be! I can't kill a honeybee without screaming and crying and calling for backup! So, Mr. or Ms. Anonymous, please explain yourself, because I'm confused as to where you are getting off saying shit like this to me or anyone else. Until then, I leave you with the following message:

Dear Anonymous Asshole,

I don't know what your problem is, but if you don't like what you are reading here, just move on to your next victim. I'm sorry that you don't have a life and do nothing but create problems for other people. It must be hard having so much hatred for strangers. If you are bitter about something, then maybe you need to start a blog of your own, because it sounds like you have some unresolved anger issues. Maybe you should put some of that energy to good use and leave people alone. Did you just get dumped or something? What's with the hostility? If I have harmed you, I apologize. I don't see how I could have done so, but I can assure you it was not intentional.

It was really a tongue-in-cheek post. I think my neighbors are generally nice people. Just a little weird and/or sad. Saying or thinking this doesn't make me a "fucking asshole." And I'm sorry, but I'm not familiar with this demographic you are referring to: the princesses who live in apartment complexes who think their shit doesn't stink. I have never observed such a phenomena. Was I supposed to get a free ego trip when I signed my lease? Are apartment girls of royal descent? Are they being tagged and studied in their natural habitat? I certainly hope so. We can't have women with self esteem, honesty or a sense of humor running around!

If you are in the habit of leaving comments like this on random blogs you encounter, it will only be a matter of time until this comes back and bites you in the ass. One day it will be your sister's blog or your friend's blog. Or perhaps your coworker's blog. Karma catches up with everyone eventually. Would you say something like this to a friend of yours? Then why are you saying it to someone who only knows you by the comments you leave? It is just encouraging me to be judgemental of you. Blogs are meant to bring people together, not apart. I'm sorry that you fail to see this and feel the need to be so nasty. I hope you were just in a bad mood and aren't like this all the time to everyone. If you are, I ask that you go elsewhere when you want to vent your frustrations on innocent bystanders.

If you knew me, which you obviously don't, you'd know that I'm a generally nice person who never means any harm in her posts. I try to be honest and open about what I am thinking. But no, I am not perfect and probably piss off the occasional reader. I won't apologize for that, because this is my blog and I live in a country that believes in free speech and the right to one's own opinion. I can assure you, I'm usually a really friendly person who does indeed have stinky shit, among other imperfections. Just please don't tell my boyfriend, because I've convinced him my shit smells like roses. Thanks! -- Love, VB


Miss Fire said...

I hate Anons. Whenever I make a nasty comment, I always use my name - and I usually leave my email address so they can send me hate mail! ;-)

Vixen said...

I normally disable Anon's on my blog. I want to know who you are dammit! so I can send the letter above to you:)

That was freakin' hilarious! You sound so "edumacated"!

Thanks for bringing a smile to my day.


Anne said...

Who would leave something like that? What is wrong with people?

Sam said...

What a poop head. Really.

Lindsay said...

Well I'm going to delurk here, and just mention, that I was always taught that if you couldn't say anything nice then you shouldn't say it at all. I think this needs to apply to face to face as well as on the blog. I think you rock and I enjoy reading you!!!

CharlestonGuy said...

I know you are but what am I?

- Anon

shell said...

i totally agree! i am a friendly lurker who just recently discovered your blog, and i enjoy it so much! i just got 2 anon responses on my blog and finally had to turn off the option of letting them post. people who post that way suck the big one.

glad you had a good vacation!

Virginia Belle said...

miss fire-- yes, that is what i'm talking about. cojones.

vixen-- you're welcome. but i can't disable it because lady starfish won't get a friggin blogger acct. i live for her comments!

anne-- i don't know. they are probably the same people who annoy everyone they encounter, whether it's in-person, on the phone or online. just nasty people with too much time on their hands.

sam--yes, i know. thanks.

lindsay-- yeah, i thought that's what most people were raised with. hopefully anonymous will learn it. i'm glad you enjoy my blog. :) thanks for visiting.

CG-- you gave me the laugh of the day!!! thanks, honey.

shell--thanks, sweetie. you are so nice. *sigh* i love all of my readers except one. :)

NML said...

God what a complete dipstick. In the time it took for them to write it, they could have been on another blog. Who shat in their cornflakes? F 'em and forget 'em x btw, good response!

Anonymous said...

Dang it ma'ams! I am the reason you have to keep anonymous on yoru blog?!? If you will help me create an identity, I will promise to use it!!!! Fuck that idiot who left a smart ass comment to you. Who does stuff like that anyway? What is wrong with someone that has to anonymously tell you what they think? Tell them to take their balls out of their purse and create an identity. Maybe they don't have one because nobody would give two shits if they existed or not!

charming, but single said...

Yeah, one of my first comments ever was from another blogger dissing me and saying I'd be single forever because I had no personality. And his blog was waaaay lame. And I was thinking, "Dude, you came to my effin blog for no reason except to mock me?" And it pissed me off soooo much because I had so few comments. Now, that stuff rolls off my back.

I have an anonymous commenter or two, but most of them aren't mean ... some make good points, albeit ones that I don't always want to hear. (About how I'm too picky.) It just seems odd that someone wouldn't just own up to their comments, at least with a Blogger name ... I mean, I have one and I'm still anonymous enough ...

You rule, VB.
