Well, since I could totally see myself as at some point being a potential offensive blogger (hehe) I would blog on by. I use my blog as my personal outlet. I don't censor myself, and I would never censor others.
Even some of my favorite blogs that I check on a daily basis post things I may not agree with, but I appreciate open speech, and find the differing viewpoints exciting to read.
Interesting question. I just had that experience 2 minutes ago. I visited a blog post that talked about pushing a child a little too hard in an extracurricular activity. The child was probably 2! I thought about leaving a comment, but everything I thought to write felt too righteous. I ended up leaving the blog without leaving my 2 cents. I care too much about people's feelings, unfortunately.
Blog on by, absolutely. My husband have been online since 1996 and learned after 6 months online in chat groups etc. that arguing online is a BAD choice. It never gets you anywhere. Now, if soeone is soliciting an opinion in a gentle way I have no problem supplying one, but if someone is just saying something I don't like I just walk away.
I would most likely blog on by. I have made comments when I disagreed, but I have always tried to be polite about it. Bashing a blogger on their turf is like someone coming into my home and dissing me. Not a happy thing.
Fab question! I put the question on mye...what if it's me posting something offensive or debatable? What would I appreciate? Blog on by if you have nothing nice to say...it is THEIR opinion after all, they arent' forcing anything on me and I have the ability to read or not so....
I try to just blog on by but there has been a few times I left comments. These are the times I let my anger get the best of me and my comments are more rude then making valid points. I have only done this about 3 times, I am convinced the writers were trying to get peoples goats-they won with me!
If I think about it and I feel the need I will come back and post, these are the times I make more valid points.
I have been known to rage on my keyboard a time or two, but I hope those days are behind me now :o) If I come upon something that ignites the passion to comment, I "walk away" and give myself some time to think it through. When I had just posted immediately, chock full of emotion and festered, the resulting comment relayed more of my emotion than my point.
Ask any pregnant woman and she will tell you that now she’s expecting what once smelled delicious - like roasting coffee beans for example, has suddenly become the one smell that induces an overwhelming feeling of nausea. For some women the pregnant nose goes into smell overdrive with incredible detection ability, in fact increased smell sensitivity can save lives. Just ask your local gas company – pregnant…
