Blog Bashing 101

Original post made by a fellow writer on Dec 20, 2007

Okay, I want to address and issue people seem to have on this blog site.

Each time a post is made it seems like people are constantly worried about our community or residents being defamed by pessimistic individuals. Please understand that in the world today each person has a right to his or her opinion, and what blogging has done is allow any common individual become a published writer with the click of a button.

Although being able to be published is a very exciting feeling for people you must remember these are common individuals...not professional writers, like me.

Blogging does allow people to voice their opinion on topics they may have had no say in just a few years ago. People enjoy being heard and putting your words in writing on a medium like the Internet gives a satisfactory feeling that you will be heard...by someone.

Yes, you are going to get gossip on blog sites...that's what a blog site is, a place to gossip and discuss things.

There is no need to delete the blog site, people need and want to be heard because this is a very involved community of people and we need to do our best to make sure we are happy with it.

Thank you for sharing "professional" writer. May I recommend you for an award? HEY, if you're patient, more common individuals will voice their nasty opinions soon....

I don't like to refer to PW's website forum as a blog, although I'll use that word for convenience. It more is like a sort of weird hybrid between the "Comments" feature on real blogs and a discussion forum with the end result being that it does neither function well.

I agree with you, Stacey.

A blog is controlled by the blogger. This is not the case here, while a person can start a discussion, they do not control the comments (i.e. they cannot delete comments).

what do you know of addiction or compassion cholo, i have been reading some of your stuff here, and it is obsurd. who are you? you know nothing but some blind sided opinions, you gather from others. what life experiences have you had and people you have personally know. people probably don't tell you anything in your own family due to your scrutiny. blind hate make one a fool. i'll tell you what, you'll never hit a target with your eyes closed. your target being truth. have you ever had a problem with any substance? have you ever even had a drink? your like a madd nazi.

are you cheney? does that mean you can't shoot anything but your mouth on purpose. you obviously have a target in mind, that being katie, and anyone whom doesn't agree with you. don't through accusations at people you don't know, cause it can go both ways bud. i would love to see the wonderland you live in, cause in mine, people are treated fair. with out the MADD NAZI'S telling people what may or may not be.

I wonder's who's throwing the accusations at people they don't know?!?!?!

no cholo i feel great, no depression here. i just don't like morons spitting info like they are reputable news source on anything. before you say any more opinons you should give some backround about where you are comming from or back off. but what have you been through in order to be so harsh and opinionated towards everyone. if you are going to blast anyone you are open for scrutiny. you know nothing. to me it seems one who spends all of his time blasting someone in another community, you aren't even a pleasanton resident. obviously has some issues with themself(you). haven't you ever heard the saying a bully only picks on people to make themselves feel better. you need to get off your highhorse, cause you have no room to talk. a know-it-all who knows nothing is nothing.

Shelley,

So what? The guy is probably being so offensive as some sort of inside joke. Reposting what he wrote is rather like navel-gazing.
