So this is what happens when you ignore your gut and do something you know you shouldn’t have done in the first place.
Against my better judgment I commented on a blog post today and got bitch-slapped in return. I said nothing inflammatory nor argumentative. I simply (and carefully) stated my opinion and asked a question.
And got made fun of in a very mean way as a result.
Fine. Consider my lesson learned. I won’t be back on that website anymore and I will keep my mouth shut in future. I don’t like arguments, I don’t like confrontations. My hopes for calm and rational discourse anywhere are dashed — which I should have realized was impossible to begin with. The internet allows people to hide behind anonymity and (I think) speak in ways they might not in a face-to-face discussion.
My time will be much better spent writing stories, pursuing my hobbies and spending time with my family. I don’t need to waste energy on drama llamas (I really rather like that moniker. Heh.) and their ilk. Thanks, ladies, for reminding me what’s *truly* important in my life — and you ain’t it.
