Firstly, let me state that on any of my various pages my profile is easily accessible.
Secondly, I have noticed that positive and supportive comments the poster’s profile is easily accessible.
THE NEGATIVE AND INSULTING COMMENTATORS CANNOT BE REACHED BY ANY MEANS.
The only part of this that actually bothers me is the cowardice of these posters.
As you can see l do not omit any comments on my articles. I actually encourage you to tell me what goes on in your mind.
So, just so you are aware, you may hurt my feelings because I do not mind.
I was raised to believe that in a democratic society I have the right to voice my opinion as long as I do not promote violence.
I exercise that right.
Part of being a democratic society is the CHARTERED RIGHT to voice my disgust towards my government or whoever or whatever the topic of the current blog or article may be. To voice my opinion about anything that I wish to discuss.
Those posting comments have the same CHARTERED RIGHT.
I may occasionally, depending on the topic, be a might rude or blunt. I am human and bear the characteristics of such. But, I am also brutally honest. Some say I am too honest.
I disagree – honest is just honesty – much as lying is just dishonesty.
So, you may hurt my feelings or I should say, “Believe that you are hurting my feelings for your own ego boost.”
This is what makes journalists and authors do what they do.
To have differences of opinion promotes discussion and discussion promotes debate, which in turn promotes change.
All I ask of you is that you have the decency to do so openly.
Do not hide behind “fake accounts” or “private profiles”.
WHAT TICKLES MY FANCY IS THAT SOME TAKE THE TIME TO READ THE FIRST PARAGRAPH AND THEN ASSUME THEY KNOW THE WHOLE ARTICLE.
AND THAT HUMOURS ME, FOR WHEN THEY JUMP ON MY SITES WITH THEIR RANTS THEY END UP REVEALING THEIR PREJUDICE.
In many ways I am a bigot. I am not a racist – I never hurry. LOL. (Sorry, just a little bigoted humour there)
What makes me chuckle is the fact that they will read my postings and get so upset.
Why does this humour me?
Let me explain it this way.
I have no desire to read porn or, say, the Qur’an. SO, I SIMPLY DO NOT READ IT CAUSE I KNOW IT WILL JUST ANGER ME.
If you do not like my opinion just stop reading and please, for the love of any of the over five thousand ‘gods’ being worshipped on this planet, please do not ask me my opinion if it is going to traumatize and scar you for life.
But, you may hurt my feelings for I honestly do not mind.
Let me see if I can find an example:
Here is a good one ……
So, I replied ……
This exchange amused me because there was two previous blogs that I actually claimed to be an asshole. My “I AM AN ASS” and my “I AM STILL AN ASS”.
Max’s comment would have been more suited on either of these. Which proves to me that he is only partially reading my articles.
I encourage whoever you are to engage in civil disagreement or agreement with me at any time for I love stimulating debates.
Here is another one that tickled me:
I am still unsure if “Pat” was being sarcastic or positive, but I will never know because GOOGLE claims that there are millions of “Pats”. So, I will never know if he/she was mad or glad.
SO IN CLOSING I MUST SAY ..
“ You may hurt my feelings for I honestly do not mind”
