While I personally have found the below exchange highly amusing (I also get a sick thrill from seeing 38 comments), other friends of mine are not nearly so amused. As I mentioned to several friends today, I have no problem with people making personal attacks directed at me, nor do I have a problem having people writing erotic (though bad) poetry featuring me. I have chosen to create and maintain an online journal and in so doing, have opened myself to being the subject of such banter, both witty and inane. I accept that.
What I cannot accept are attacks and inappropriate comments directed at personal friends of mine, who do not maintain their own blogs and have no real say in what I choose to say and not say about them. THIS MEANS that if I delete a poem and explicitly tell you that I removed it because my friends did not appreciate it, it is not an invitation to post a second, equally inappropriate poem. If you want to tell me all your nasty thoughts you are more than welcome...create your own blogger account and I'll contact you privately so you can e-mail them to me. As for my loser friends going out and being losers, again I say, it was not by their own choice that details of their personal lives appeared in a public forum. So I'm missing the part where they are pathetic for attempting to live out their personal life in private. It's not their fault they have a pathetic friend who enjoys publicly airing her dirty laundry. I myself have never denied being a pathetic, desperate attention whore - please read my profile, where I declare my loserishness loud and clear. But thank you, Captain Obvious, for clarifying that.
I've had problems with inappropriate comments before. I made fun of those people and they went away. I fear though, that that will not be the case this time.
Also, I'd like to mention that the comment directed at Eric telling him not to argue because he can't win was hilarious. Eric argues for a living, that's what lawyers do. Even if he were wrong (which I don't believe he is) he's still going to beat the pants off you because he's a better arguer than than everyone else. He and my other friends and I use "big words" because we are nerds who like to read. I am not trying to look like I's knows the mostest, that's how I actually talk. Those are the words that roll off the tongue. You can be a word snob too - invest in a thesaurus. Also take Latin in school, it's good for learning etymology (that means where words come from).
So, regulars, personal friends, perverts, anonymous lurkers, and that ugly guy hiding over in the corner (we all know you're there, we can smell you - go take a shower), it is with deep, deep regret that I have decided to close the blog to anonymous posters, indefinitely. This means that if you have something to say, you have to sign up for a blogger account. Don't worry, you don't have to be a loser like me and set up an actual blog. To everyone else, I'm sorry, but I have to cut you off.
I now return you to your regularly scheduled perversion.
