Here are two comments from "anonymous" about 4 hours apart. The new blogger word is "flamed" according to one of my friends.
ooh... i like the green... it looks really good with the purple background too!
racist c*** (see comments if you can't figure out the asterisks. I don't want that word on my post, thanks)
I have no way of knowing if the same anonymous wrote both comments or if there is any way of avoiding this. I like the green with the purple too. The second comment says a lot about the author.
Shock and then tears. Anon accomplished whatever sick short term goal he/she had in mind.
1. Delete and move on (thanks for the comment L.)
2. Search my soul for whatever I may have said to provoke this tripe. (Blame the victim mentality - I used to be good at that and it's still my initial reaction sometimes)
3. Put it out here for all to see it for what it is.
As you can see, I chose Door Number 3.
I knew there was a possibility of something like this happening. I'm sure any of you who have been blogging for a while have experienced some of the same thing
I've decided not to agonize about what I may or may not have said. I don't think it matters and if I start weighing every word for fear of offending, I might as well hang it up now. I've made too many friends and had too good a time to let "anon" win.
I may get back later with something a little more cheerful but wanted to get this out quickly. Thanks in advance to all my friends who will see this.
Note to anonymous #2 (if you are two different people) This is your 15 minutes of fame. Enjoy it while it lasts.
