Recently, I discovered I could add a message to the Comments box. You may have noticed that it says that policy forbids insults.
I guess some people don’t get it or it baits them.
Anyway, some of the comments I trash are aimed at me and some at our regular group of commenters. All of us offer thoughtful, politically incorrect observations about life, sometimes leavened with taboo words like “nigger,” or “faggot.” My philosophy is that we have a right to use taboo words, so long as we don’t address them to innocent parties.
Yesterday the death of singer George Michael inspired Paladin to pen a post about the excesses of celebrity worship. You can read it here or just scroll down about five or six posts until you come to it.
It’s one of my better posts since it addresses an issue no one is talking about. The worship of celebrities who are poor role models is a part of modern life that must be destroyed as we reform our sick degenerate culture. Really, not much was said about the negatives relating to the singer, other than very briefly. The main point is that his shallow fans will anoint him a saint now, aided by the press.
Anyway, an apparent George Michael fan wrote this, which is in the trash.
God wonders what some little keyboard warrior will say about you in death. What a profound insult you are, and God only knows what drives you to make such comments. You are quite obviously a disgusting little person hiding behind a keyboard, dirty and disheveled as your mind, thumping away on your keyboard in a pair of old dirty white undies you haven’t changed for weeks. Get a life, for whatever time you have left. I dirty bitter twisted soul such as yours must be incredibly hard to live with, therefore your casting of filth on others is your only release. Disgusting little man you are. Just another turd floating in the toilet of life.
It’s interesting that these liberals (probable homo in this case), can only respond with personal attacks against the writer, as opposed to writing a rebuttal to the ideas expressed by the writer.
Interestingly, when I was a professor, I won three teaching awards. Part of that was due to the praise the students heaped upon my ability to express ideas. But there were always a few insults on the teaching survey forms about like this one. Actually, I got called a faggot more than once, so I learned to quickly ignore destructive criticism, while trying to take constructive criticism to heart.
For the record, the site is receiving about 9,000 views a day on average (and increasing), with about three or four highly negative comments a week that are routinely trashed.
People who don’t engage with the ideas don’t deserve a voice. So, unless you have something meaningful to say, don’t waste your time.
