I’m a member of a couple of commenting sites, Despair.nu and Rouged.org. From each of them I’ve endured many ridiculously awful websites, but for some of them I’ve left legit comments, and others sites I just can’t bring myself to comment.
I received a comment on my previous entry, Site Updates from Lena of cherirose.com. Normally I’d be grateful for the comment, and will even visit their site to return the gesture, but upon actually reading the comment, I became annoyed, yet amused.
Hello my name is Lena and i am suppose to comment on your site so i am commenting. Nice blog site you have here. Plain and simple.
I, uh, uhm… ? So I sent her an e-mail giving her a “heads up” that a commenting network (eg: rouged.org) is for actually leaving legitmate comments, and not something that replicates a carbon copy of a spam e-mail. You visit the website, read the entry, and post a comment in regards to that entry. So of course I got your typical and expected snooty e-mail.
I’ve already sent several replies to her replies, but to sum it up she uses the ever-so popular excuse of “it’s the internet,” “get over it,” “I can do whatever I want,” and various other statements that I would say when I was twelve years old, and not twenty-nine as her website states.
Either way, for future reference: If you’re going to leave a comment on my site, please read the entry and comment in regards to the entry. Also make sure it’s because you want to comment not because you’re “supposed to comment.”
