I don't know if this is a "bad" comment but I recently had a guy dis Mommy Blogs for not using their influence to change the world. He claims all we talk about are "ice cream and toads, teddy bears and diaper systems". He wasn't rude or anything but he sure sparked a debate! I guess I should thank him for it, huh? *wink*
I haven't had any really bad comments although I have had people disagree with my opinions. So far, no one has been mean. (but, I also haven't really hit on an hot topics either. ) I mostly just post about my every day life with the kids.
Now, when i start workin on the presidential campaign....well, then, I expect to get some nasty comments. UGH!

I had one weird comment and the content wasn't so bad except the italics he had under his signature made it oh so delete-able. It said something to the affect of: "Stop breast-feeding everywhere. Its ruining breasts. It hurts women. Babies don't need it. Men are leaving their wives because of it. Don't breastfeed, save the breast." Maybe he was trying to be funny. Maybe not (scary thought). Nevertheless, whatever credibility he had before was entirely gone. *DELETE*
I've had one person (anonymous) slam me for giving my teething infant pain medication. Saying that with five children she'd never "resorted to Tylenol or Motrin to quiet her children."
Later (quite recently actually) a different person (another anonymous, maybe the same one actually) went ballistic on a post where I tongue in cheek asked if wanting time away from my kids made me a bad mom. Every time someone commented in reaction to her comment she'd come back to the charge. Apparently we should treasure each and every second we are with our kids and never ever want to be away from them. HA! I mean... duh, of course. LOL
When I was blogging my first child's milestones and first year, one jealous reader left comments criticizing me for my daughter's reflux and allergies... saying it was somehow my fault because I was such an awful mother. And furthermore she was ugly. :( It was so sad. Luckily, most of my other readers rallied and found out via IP address who was leaving the nasty comments and we had her banned from all sorts of blogs and sites from there on out.
I just got my first "Angry Anonymous" comment! I'm kind excited about it - is that wrong? It was on a post I did about those strollers for dogs. Apparently I'm a dog hater because I don't value the life of my dog and the life of my child equally.
Too bad you feel it is "just a dog". Maybe you didn't love your dog enough. Sounds a little sad your dog was good enough until you got a human child. Real animal lovers don't push their animals aside just because they had a human child. I have both and spoil both just the same. People who feel they are "just" animals shouldn't have them.
I posted a picture of the M & M store in Las Vegas, and asked readers what was their favorite M & M. I stated that I loved the blue peanut M & Ms. A reader replied that "She didn't discrimate". She also stated that it was sad that stores such as M & M existed. When I read the post, my response was how did we end up here over M & Ms. I decided that she wasn't worth the trouble, and deleted the post.
Parenting teens is hard enough, but parenting a troubled teen can feel impossible. Most parents simply don’t have the training in psychotherapy techniques, communication skills, and mentoring necessary to guide a teen through the troubled years of adolescence, especially when that teen is also struggling with mental…
