Alright. I should be back to normal posting now. I’ve been up all night, nothing unusual in that, writing in all my sites, and creating back up posts. This is the last blog I’m working on for a while.
I got my first true flame yesterday. Not my first flame ever – I’ve had those on the reptile mailing lists that I run, not usually directed towards me though.
Amazingly my first blog flame was on As the Garden Grows, my gardening blog. What do you think I could have possibly posted that would get someone so angry that they’d call me an idiot three or four times? Well, it was my post “Amazing Weather“.
It seems that the person took offense to the fact that I said it’s often -10 Celsius (14 F) during the day here in Toronto in January and even colder at night. They told me that I should discuss things that I know nothing of. Unfortunately they didn’t seem to notice that they were commenting on a gardening blog – I think most gardeners are very aware of the weather year round. Plus I’ve lived in Toronto for 23 years. I think I know what I’m talking about.
My commenter, who wrote like this “so know b4 u speak u stupid idiot. ppl like u that don’t know facts b4 the speak make others think that Toronto is that cold” Gee with grammar and proper spelling like that I should take this person seriously shouldn’t I? Especially when they compliment me by calling me a stupid idiot. LOL
I think that persons just a heart attack waiting to happen if they let a gardening post about nice weather get them so upset.
I don’t understand why people letting the little things in life like this get them so upset. It doesn’t make sense.
What kind of person are you?
Do you fly off the handle at little things when you think you are right and someone else is wrong?
Or do you let it slide and save your energy for bigger problems that really do need a response?
