Maddie from Ridicluelessness got her first hatemail this week and it seems that I have had my first "incident of blog weirdness" today. So far I've been pretty lucky I have never even been left a rude comment. The honeymoon is officially over.
So, I get home from work today and notice a couple comments on my blog that don't really make a lot of sense. I follow my site meter to where the comments are coming from and much to my dismay it appears that someone left a comment on someone else's blog speaking on behalf of"Bullet Poof Bracelets" (I kid you not, they didn't even spell it right) they basically accused this other person of ripping off the last two posts of mine. Anyone can clearly see that this isn't the case as the other person even posted before I did. Plus, I think 1.3 million blogs have posted the Carson Daly and Paula Abdul pictures (they were hard to resist)
The person accused was none to happy and who could blame them. So they proceeded to tell this busy-body where to stick it.
I left a comment under this exchange explaining that I didn't know who this person who made the accusation was and I would appreciate it if whoever they were that they wouldn't speak on my behalf etc. I also noted that I felt it was a frustrating situation that I'd nothing to do with.
I honestly thought that would be the end of it.
It then turns out this weird person who started all of this shit went back and left another comment dissing this poor person's blog, spouting off like an idiot, being extremely rude and they made it sound as if it were coming from me! Nobody mentioned anything about the explanation I had left, they all just dove in with the antagonizer. Back and forth, back and forth.
I am not confrontational in the least. And what's ironic is, I've had posts ripped off verbatim in the past and I didn't get into an argument about it. Now a person goes to someone else's blog starts shit that has nothing to do with me or this other person and now I'm in a fight about it.
Oh and of course this persons loyal readers aren't too happy either. They're coming here to report back about how much my blog sucks, my name sucks, I suck.
My poor blog, she never hurt anyone (except a few fragile celebrities) and now she is tainted.
