BLOGGING FOR SOME STRANGE KIND OF PEOPLE - IT'S LIFE BUT NOT AS WE'VE KNOWN IT
The better I get at this computing lark the more I am able to find and read other 'blogs' this, unfortunately has a serious downside. I write a blog so I am fair game for anyone who wants to challenge my opinions and I'm no shrinking violet so why should I care? well, it's not me I'm worried about, I don't like the abuse I get but I know I have to live with it. The problem is the quality of what is written, it is depressing, most of it is reactionary stuff and very predictable but it seems to be written by inadequates who are consumed by hatred. I would compare most of them with people who, years ago before blogging, used to get their kicks by writing anonymous poison pen letters particularly to vulnerable people, ( someone is watching you type of thing ) I suppose though that blogging provides a kind of safety valve for them, who knows what some of them might get up to if they couldn't take out their frustrations in this way. I wonder if the figures for certain kinds of crime have dropped since the advent of blogging? there is the possibility of course that figures for these things might go up when some folk start blogging and get themselves into a state of, well, what kind of state ? you would need to read some of it to see what I'm getting at I can't say more in a popular family blog like this. I, and now, to a lesser extent my family, still get sent horrible stuff, mainly racist, lurid and threatening because some folk don't like my opinions and blogging has liberated them. Find out what I mean by accessing it for yourself, try googling Cllr. Terry Kelly and go into some of the blogs which are attacking me, use the links which are there on their blogs and make up your own minds, be warned though it's not for the faint hearted and could damage your opinion of your fellow human beings.
