It Had To Happen!

After yet another post of mine over on Fridge Soup, about those bloggers who enable Comment Moderation because they object to Spam or Crank Comments, what should turn up on my Alias Jinsky Blog this morning, but one such entry.

It came from a somewhat embittered male who decided to broadcast details of his strange blog, where he was urging everyone to 'Boycott American Women'.  Would you believe it?! I imagine there may be one or two American Males who would vigorously oppose his views.

I may have been more inclined to take time to listen to his tale of woe, if he had been brave enough to allow comments to be made on his posts - no such luck. So I hope he enjoys his solitary ranting into the silence of a Blogworld which will never be able to offer him a chance of help.

I would suggest he needs to learn how to cope better with his feelings, until he can find a point of balance within himself, but as he chooses to withhold both his identity and email address, he is liable to remain in his unhappy state of self inflicted purgatory for all time.

  2. His comment was a strange one. I wondered if it was entirely serious but didn't visit his blog. Poor man must have had an unhappy love affair/marriage/friendship/life . . .

  3. Well, I am curious to know just what SHE did to him. Aren't you?

  4. I can't see his comment... what fun a ranter without a cause!

  5. Bruce- I sure am curious! But his blog wasn't forthcoming on the subject!

  6. As posted over there: "I like WordPress where you can choose to moderate the first comment, but once a commenter is approved, you no longer have top bother."

    It also catches spam, so I haven't had to resort to the irritating captcha device.

  7. I suppose he feels he's got a point but we're not interested, are we? I hope he gets over it soon and moves on.

  8. Oh dear, I've read his comment to your previous post. I'm guessing he's about 35, still living with his mom (who knits Christmas sweaters for him), other women (apart from his mom) are not even remotely interested in him and he is about to snap. I hope he isn't one of those gun-loving and -owning sad guys or we might see him in the news someday. And I also hope that he's one of those people who's blog keeps them sane.
    Good luck to him.

    And that is what wordverification is for as far as I know. To keep spammers, who send 'automatic' comments to lots of blogs, out.

  9. I don't think there was anything automatic about his comment - he sent me a further two, after I promptly deleted his first one, but each one was space several minutes apart. I've now been reliably informed, he's put a 'private' sign on his blog, anyway!

  10. I got his comment too. I deleted his comment, and refused to be tempted to visit his blog. I don't want to willingly walk into negativity.....from a guy who lives with his mom and wears her handmade sweaters. (wink, wink, Carolina)

  11. Sarah- I wanted to know whether he had good cause for grievance...or whether he was simply lashing out because of wounded pride! I would have liked to be able to try to offer him some kind of lifeline! A glimmer of hope for a way out of how he was feeling, might make all the difference to the poor guy – you have to feel sorry for anybody who’s driven to such lengths.

  12. Let's hope he calmed himself by blowing off some steam.

  13. How do you always manage to speak such good sense Jinksy?

  14. Oh, Weaver dear! If only that were true! I can so easily come out with more nonsense than should be allowed to be let loose on the world.

    But I haven’t got to my age without learning a few lessons along the way, and one major one, is that bitterness, anger or hatred only harms the one who feels such emotion.

    Life is all about perception – change that, and things are seldom as bad as they seem.

  15. Unfortunately our blogging world is open to nutters like that eh. I had a few strange comments myself over the last few years, best ignored, but isn't it so tempting to bite back, lol.
    Thanks for your visit, Dennis is a good blog friend to me, I call him Wolfie. I have seen your name around some of the places I visit. Pleased to meet you.

  16. I could boycott just about anything - but not the woman. Without her, could I live?

  17. jinksy i also received his comment. interestingly, i've known a very small group of american women. they were and are exceptional people in that they are strong-willed, creative, on fire, very cool, lovely, passionate people. i'm not advertising as much as acknowledging a debt for the privilege!! steven

  18. I think my own reaction would be just to delete and not waste blog space on such a thing, but you give us a fine example of another approach. Well handled, jinksy.

  19. It's just the latest spam/garbage to make the rounds. It serves no purpose but to irritate. Don't let it.

  20. people like that are just so annoying!!!

  21. Once again I ask Blogworld . . . why do I never get these interesting spams/comments/links to nasty blogs? Jinksy . . that's a lot of words to call a prat a prat.

Curiosity Cats can leave a whisker here...but not before noting, please, that I choose to have an award free, tag free, meme free blog. But by all means, talk to me by email - I love to 'chat'...
