Rant-ish

I follow about 30 blogs and occasionally post a comment when something strikes me. They're usually generic comments like, "Wow, that's some accomplishment. Congrats." or "I love the new project, the details are incredible." Benign stuff but everyone likes to know they're being read, right? That is of course, until we get to know each other and then all bets are off and the real fun ensues.

Anyway, I recently (in the past few months), posted two separate comments to one of said blogs. Today, when visiting again, I realized my comment didn't show up. In fact, that previous comment didn't show up either. Hmmm ... pause. The first time I just figured I was an idiot but when yesterday's comment didn't show up and several others did, I had the big lightbulb moment -- moderated comments and I'm not being approved. I immediately decided to send off an email. Here are the options I came up with....

#1 (insert blogger name here), I think there may be a problem with your blog as my comments aren't showing up. Another blogger.com glitch, eh? Just thought you'd like to know. Be well, Joe (knitguyla)

#2: (insert blogger name here), I apologize if my comments to your blog were an intrusion. Duh, it finally dawned on me that I'm not posting them incorrectly but apparently, you're not approving them. I'm not sure why but I assure you it won't happen again. Be well, Joe (knitguyla)

#3: (insert blogger name here), fuck you and the horse you road in on!

So let's vote, will it be #1, #2 or #3! I'm too lazy pissed to figure out how to add a poll here so just use the comments and I'll decide if they're good enough to publish. Aren't you feeling the kumbaya among knitters? I know I am. All done now.

On the knitting front: The swatching is done. Tomorrow we knit the afghan square and it will be 15 inches....I hope. J.

Personally I like the totally direct approach but to keep the peace, I like number 2.....can't wait to see the knitting...

For me, it would fall between numbers 2 and 3. Why people gotta be like that?

I'd go for the #2....But #3 is soundin' better by the moment.

Sorry to hear thats happened to you dear. But just know I appreciate your comments and anyone else that cares enough to read my blog and leave one! Your taking time out of your schedule to do so and I feel privleged that you've done so!

You're all so diplomatic. In the end I won't send an email but instead simply refrain from visiting the blog in question. It's not worth the effort.

Geez..I hope that was not mine, I do have moderated comments only because of the incident last fall with that nasty woman from ravelry and her friends. I did approve your comment as they are sent to my email and even though I seem to disappear off the face of the earth at times, I do check email daily. I know what you mean though, I have had that happen before and I simply stopped going to their blog.
