Amazing

It's fucking amazing how I have to continue to repeat this over and over and over.

IF YOU DON'T LIKE WHAT'S HERE DON'T READ IT. DON'T MAKE COMMENTS IF YOU'RE JUST GOING TO CRITICIZE. THIS INCLUDES STUPID LITTLE IMMATURE EMAILS. WE ALL MAKE MISTAKES IN LIFE. I DON'T NEED PEOPLE TELLING ME THEY AGREE OR DISAGREE WITH WHAT I DO. YOU DON'T EVEN HAVE A RIGHT TO BE HERE TO BEGIN WITH IN MY OPINION. YOU KNOW WHO THIS IS DIRECTED TO.

Thanks for listening to YET ANOTHER public service announcement. It's really a shame I have to remind people this is my journal, my life, and I'll do what I want. I'm not looking for opinions or otherwise. If you don't like what you read bugger off and move along.

Sing it, sister! Boy, can I ever relate to those words. You are absolutely right. Lurkers who have nothing to contribute but criticism, and self righteous judgemments while all they are is little more than voyeuristic readers who would never expose themselves for fear of censure are pathetic. They need to get a life of their own, and leave you to expressing the truth of your own life.

I'm glad to hear at least SOMEONE gets it.

There are so many "types" of journals on here I think people stop using common sense when it comes to what to say when. Many people go along begging for comments and threating to take people off lists. All I want is a place to write. Somewhere where my personal friends can go to get inside my head.

It's frusterating to spill your guts and then have people who don't even begin to understand the situation criticize me for what I'm doing.

GRRRRRR :P

Unfortunately, the fact that each person's journal here is their own private space is easily lost on the masses. Most casual readers treat it like a forum, where it's basically a free-for-all discussion.

Only those who have an LJ account and have written long personal posts only to ponder "Private/Friends/Public?" know what it means to have a journal of your own, and to publically display private ramblings. In a forum, this would be a request for public comment, but in a journal, it's simply a place to put shit, and the fact that one can comment is secondary.

People are recording their inner thoughts here, and letting the world inside their head to some extent, but it doesn't mean they're asking for commentary, criticism, or approval. Everyone needs to keep in mind that you're reading stuff that doesn't usually leave the writer's skull, and treat it like a privelege to have such an "inside view." In other words, unless your reaction (in words) to someone else's post is actually helpful to them in some way, either keep it to yourself or post it in your own space.

(This comment intended for instructional purposes only for the aforementioned masses.)

Very eloquently put.

I think it's the comment whores out there that confuse people. You know the ones that demand comments on every single to feel justified in their personal exsistence or something.

People are just dumb.

on the same token you could do what a lot of people do and screen comments.

Can't really screen an email can you?

And that's not the point. The point is people's immaturity is a little tiring.

Glad I've been able to talk to you lately...it's been really great *sticking to the whole immature theme since I'm fed up with everything*

well i haven't even been in town so...and people are entitled to their own opinions, just as you are entitled to yours of course! Not worth arguing about hon, I'm sorry I haven't been around I've been doing the job hunt from hell as well as spending the last 4 days in another state. Things have been busy, not much I can do until they settle down.
