I got some stuff to get off my chest Rachel and you aren’t going to like it. Unfortunately for you, I am forced to watch your show when my wife watches it. This past episode made me think you are a real piece of work.
I am not going to draw this out into a long post. You –
1 – Forced that man to get into a confrontation with his father who he was estranged from for… show ratings. What a termagant!
2 – You finally tell a guy on the show you love them and then you send him home the same day. For no reason. Other than you already got your show ratings from ruining his future years or entire life with his family. Proud of yourself?
3 – “I don’t say things just to say them.” Is what you said to Dean at the rose ceremony (yes I know what a fucking rose ceremony is and it pisses me the fuck off). Other than the word “love” apparently. You like to toss that one around.
4 – What I hate the most is that I cared enough to see the end so I could hate her even more. Ugh… now I hate MYSELF! What a vicious circle.
It may seem funny that Opinionated Man advises against engaging trolls… but there is a reason for everything. I’ve found that like religion and politics, trolls will never change. In fact, they aren’t real people when they are trolling you because “trolling” is an action. You aren’t going to change anyone’s mind midstream.
I learned my lesson the hard way on this one. There was a time not so long ago that I felt on top of the world. I felt untouchable and I egged people on when they confronted me. It was entertaining, it was thrilling, and it was honestly blogging to me. You see I come from the forum days, the days when everyone wasn’t your friend. You found out quickly that in fact most people don’t care about you and online that uncaring nature can quickly turn to aggression.
The first “knock knock knock” on my door from law enforcement let me know that some bloggers care a ton about the words said online. Some bloggers feel threatened while making threats. Some bloggers feel so big until they are so small that they have to call the police on you to make themselves feel better. I learned that those “some bloggers” are far more numerous than I thought. After years of receiving threats and nasty emails, I finally found myself on the other side of the line. Apparently people felt threatened by ME and that entitled them to try and have me policed. All the lines were erased from that point forward.
I almost stopped blogging because of all this… all this blogging going on. It is still amazing to me that regardless if you are in the real world or the virtual, still you can hurt feelings and make people feel left out. You can virtually shut the door on people’s toes and they get really offended, they get upset. They get angry and mad, and in turn they try to get even. They try to shut you down, shut down your blog, shut down your words. And after all is said and done you have to ask yourself one question… is this all worth it?
1 – Build a few churches and hire some people to pray for me daily. Maybe even give myself a position?
2 – Feed all the kids and unfeed all the adults.
3 – Create my own Powerball where people give me money and someone supposedly wins weekly.
4 – Change my name to Chang and disappear.
5 – I’ll be the asshole with the exotic pets I never take care of myself (because that’s how your ass gets eaten). Maybe a liger or two.
6 – Buy a television station (so I can’t get fired), host a show where I pay people to clap for me constantly because that has to be great for your self esteem, and prepare an army of lawyers.
7 – Don’t do number 6 and instead buy an island away from everyone I don’t care about.
8 – Taste every single scotch in the world.
9 – Visit all the famous places I want to see before someone blows it up or ruins it.
10 – There are many daily activities I find tedious, but brushing my teeth is top on that list. I’d hire someone to brush my teeth for me, like a personal dentist. Do we really have to do it three times a day though…
