I have noticed lately that some of my posts have been rated “poor” by somebody. The latest one was for the last post I wrote.
Okay. What was poor about it? The way it was written? The content? Did you not like reading about what a lying, cheating, disease-giving, narcissistic ex-husband said and did?
Do you think that I should still protect him and present him as the most wonderful man who ever walked Earth?
(Sorry, not going to happen.)
If you think I’m going to remove the “rate” option from my site, you are dead wrong.
SO HERE’S WHAT YOU DO:
Don’t hide behind a “star.” GROW A SET and post a comment.
You could say something like:
“You suck.” (That phrase has a few connotations so let’s address them.)
First. “I suck.” Does that mean I’m a bad writer? Okay. If you think so, here’s an option…don’t read my posts.
Second. “I suck.” Are you assuming….or dreaming of possibilities?
“Your punctuation is all wrong.”
Hey. I’m one of them thar uneducated peepas. Just ’cause I don’t know from commas or semi-colons don’t mean I don’t know nothin’ about good writin’.
“You should write about recipes and….squirrels.”
Well, I’ll be dogged! Just this morning I loaded my shotgun and bagged a couple of those little critters. I’m going to whomp me up some squirrel stew tonight and I’ll provide the recipe on tomorrows’ post. How’s that?
“You couldn’t write your way out of a wet paper bag.”
I’m willing to bet my sweet bippy that you can’t either. I’ve always heard that those who can’t….criticize those who do.
So, all of you “poor raters” and trolls out there, go ahead and crawl out from under the woodwork. Nobody likes cowards.
Remember…even the sun shines on a dogs’ ass sometimes and if cockroaches wouldn’t hide under the cover of darkness, it might shine on them, too.
