The Well Meant Suggestion of an Idiot

I’m not in here very often. I don’t get much time between working, sleeping, and breathing.

When I do have a little time to myself I enjoy a little rock music, or a good peice of literature. Maybe a night with a few close friends (I have no other kind of friend).

If on occasion I am offered the chance to use a computer that has a phone line, I do. When I’m here the last thing I want to read is a bunch of petty bickering.

Instead of shooting off an insult about someone’s mental state, medication, or dating habits, why not try a little constructive critizism? How about giving someone useful advice instead of scareing them away from the site forever?

Just because someone implies that you’ve been intimate with Rover doesn’t mean you have to reply in kind. This only proves I’m an idiot, because I think that everyone here can think of something more interesting to say than “go fuck a goat, you pill popping lunatic.”

Either I’m an idiot and no one here cares, or I’m not. Either way, I ask you not to reply to this unless you can make me think.

trying very hard not to die of boredom..what with being unable to do half of my favorite things right now. Still haven't quite recoverd from my surgery. Wont even let me work very much right now, they seem to think that they'll break me. I'm not all that fragile you know.


  1. What is more evil than the devil, greater than God, the rich want for it, the poor have it, and if you eat it, you’ll die?

  2. I think you’re right. A little constructive criticism is waht every one needs in this life. But there will always be some bad apples. I guess what you read was the latter, since, while there are some scathing and mostly idiotic comments, the most part of this site is filled with encouragement and constructive criticism. However, your point is duly noted.

  3. I always try to be constructive, but I see alot of people on this site who don’t do the same. Although at first it infuriated me, I’m beginning to see why.
    It’s always either jealousy of someone’s skill or ideas …. or simply their bravery to submit a piece of their writing for public scrutiny. Or a carefully constructed mask for an ignorance that shows through more brilliantly with every attempt to conceal it.
    However, I do think you’re being a little harsh on those who choose to retaliate. I know it’s infuriating to watch people belying their intelligence with comments fit only for pre-school bullies, but sometimes (although I hate to admit it) the only way to make someone listen is to reply the way they speak to you. It’s aggravating and restricting but there are times when it’s the only way.
    Finally, I think anyone worth keeping on this site will have too great an intelligence and too much understanding of basic human nature to be frightened away by a little meanness, don’t you ?

    P.S. If I didn’t make you think then I apologise but if this task is really so difficult then you need to broaden your mind to accept things a little more at face value.

    P.P.S. You’re not an idiot and there’ll always be those who care.
