Shadow Lane: A Winchester Obsession
Oh Nonnies!

So when I checked my email this morning I had a notification that there was a livejournal comment on one of my posts - whoohoo lj thanks for the notification keep up the good work and maybe find the rest of them that are missing from my inbox *pats Frank on the head* - anyway it was an anon comment - you all know the type, unfortunately anon commenting is generally used as a way to attack writers, pfft we all know this.  The thing the nonnies don't seem to understand is that I just can't seem to work up the energy to be upset over someone attacking my writing when they do it anonymously.  Honestly I usually laugh at it, besides if it keeps the nonnies from going after writers who are easily hurt then let them troll my lj until the end of time.

But it got me to thinking...

The nonnies have a comm where they can go bitch about/attack writers to their little hearts content so maybe there should be a comm for writers where they can post anon comments that they have received so we can all point and laugh - just to be clear, at the sad nonnies not the writers.

I don't know, it sounds kind of silly right?  But I just think it could end up being a place where writers have the opportunity to share comments that have hurt them and, if they so chose, leave a link to the post that the anon comment originated from and, hopefully, get an honest and respectful opinion about the original post.  Or just bitch about whatever hurtful comment the nonnie left.

At the end of the month we could have a poll for the most pathetic nonnie comment and give it the booby prize.

So a question to you dear flist if I started a comm like that would you join?

Poll #1714838 Should I bother to do this?

Yes

Yes
4(100.0%)

No

No
1(100.0%)

I would if...

A fic I wrote a couple of years ago called I Don't Know, It's Kinda Crazy These Days. Funny thing is, said nonnie commented at the end of the fic (is a chaptered fic). If it bothered them so much why the hell did they read it to the end? Honestly, I don't like something I stop reading it right away, of course I don't leave nasty comments but maybe not being rude is just me. Silly, silly nonnie.

Though kudos to the nonnie, he/she actually wrote a full sentence and no caps diarrhea in sight.

Turnabout is fair play. The only question is how would they know about it ?

People should follow the golden rule. If you don't have anything nice to say, don't say anything at all!

The same way they tend to find out about everything else, word of mouth or that comm that's made specifically to advertise other comms. You know, whatever works. Besides, nonnies wouldn't come to play at the comm because I wouldn't allow for anon posting.

People should follow the golden rule. If you don't have anything nice to say, don't say anything at all! That's what I think but I'm afraid that manners seem to have gone the way of the dodo. What I wonder is if they ever stop and think what their mother's would say if they caught them being rude. I'm 39 (and okay my relationship with my parents isn't the best) but I would deserve the smack to the back of the head my mother would give me if I ever said/acted like that.

It's bad enough they write bad things but then not to sign it makes it twice as bad IMO.

I know that feeling & I agree. Heck if I did half of the things I see people doing today I wouldn't have been able to sit down for a week...

For some reason I cannot explain (and even though I have you in the right filter) I never see your posts! ARGGHHH WHAT YOU DOING LJ? *kicks it*

So uhm, yes to that vote thing :)

Since I only seem to manage to get 1 in every 5 email notifications (roughly) from lj and lj and I can't agree as to who's fault that could be, I figure it's best to stay as far away from my filter settings as possible. Right now, they are set to default and for my sanity, they'll stay that way. ;)

You know it's strange cause I got all my notifications, I think! At least when I checked my entries that is, don't know about other stuff. I find it very difficult to have no filters, since some of the comms I have are extremely high traffic, eek.

Anyway, now that I know about it I'll keep an eye out to see what happens!

I voted yes, on the rare occasion when I get one of those it's "delete". I've just realise dthat's made me sound very much like a cyberman. I'm of the opinion, don't like, don't read. I'm sure the person who wrote it spent a lot of time on it and doesn't care for troll-like comments.
