Althouse posted a video she and her husband had taken of a bus with two VW vans welded on top. Some of the commentators in the thread went off on the “hippie scum”…this is my response:
Seriously, these folks ain’t hurting any of ya’ll…yet some of ya feel the need to REPEATEDLY take the time to post a message of disdain and scorn. I don’t mean to be mean, but if these folks really bother you that much then there is something very wrong with you and your life.
I think that, for some people, message threads are a form of self-therapy….for whatever reasons they feel like they can’t voice any of their disapprovals/dislikes in the “real world”, so they come online in order to let it aaaaaall out. Which is a shame…’cause all that negativity is making everything else a little less brighter.
ADDED: Looking back at the thread a few hours later, my words have been replaced with “This comment has been removed by a blog administrator.”
Don’t get me wrong, I ain’t whining about ’em deleting it…their house, their rules…but this is exactly why I decided to start copying over the comments I make elsewhere onto this page.
