Keeping your home clean can be an exhausting task, especially if you have to squeeze it in between the chaos and work and keeping your family in line. And if your life feels like it’s nothing but cleaning and tedious chores, perhaps it’s…
The weather is getting hotter and hotter, and if you haven’t done it already, you are probably getting ready to open your pool and start the swimming season. Having a pool in your backyard is wonderful, but it requires quite some effort before you…
No one is denying children aren’t the gift that keep on giving. But, as a parent, there are just some tasks in day to day adult life that shouldn’t be accompanied by kids. Namely the weekly food shop. Opening yourself up to a world of whining, potential tantrums and…
I will sometimes comment on Blogher regarding certain political issues. Get involved in the conversation- sometimes heated.
Yesterday I got a comment on my personal blog's about page from some woman. She was responding to a comment I left on Blogher. She stated she wanted to make sure I got her message. I was quite shocked and kind of felt invaded.
My blog in a way is my home. I know I post my URL on other sites but I won't think of going to a person's personal blog and harass them about comments they made on another site. To me when you seek a person out you are being a bully.
So what are the expectations of leaving comments on other site? Should a person be allowed to seek you out on your personal blog? Are there rules?
I try to play by the rules, "if you don't have anything nice to share, don't share at all" and even if I disapprove or disagree with the poster, I need not be rude or bully anyone. In your case this person took an extra step to be rude and for such reasons, I continue to moderate my comments. I can say i've only deleted maybe one or two out of distaste, but I'd say yours would be fine to 'trash' for just being unrelated (and rude).
I don't really know about "rules", per say, but in my opinion that is not right to contact you on your personal email. If it is a discussion on a certain site, then that is where all replies/comments should stay. Hope she didn't upset you too much!
I think there's just rules of being polite when visiting blogs. Unfortunately some people just get so involved in debates that they can't let things go. It's sad. I would just delete the comment and forget about it. It's their loss not yours. Just thank your lucky stars she's not your next door neighbour in real life.
