It's my blog, and I'll rant if I want to!

>>I'm very sorry to have to say this, but that is probably one of the ugliest cats I've ever seen. As a Maine Coon, Russian Blue, and Siamese man myself, I find the flat-faced breeds a little disconcerting. Anyway, happy birthday. <<

Today I found the above comment on my blog. This asshat *HAD* to say this. For what? The Good of Mankind? My well being? Pumpkin's? And this weenie had the audacity to do it *anonmyously*. What a he-man!!


Now clearly this man has an inordinately small penis and an even smaller intellect and his comment does not change my life in any way but I fear it is symptomatic of all that is bad on the internet....Why do some feel it is ok to drive by and snipe, saying things they would NEVER have the sack to say face to face?? Why is it ok to break internet appointments without a fair-thee-well, when if the same behavior was exhibited face to face, the offender would be unceremoniously kicked to the curb? Y do we toler8 puter speak? Has it become 2 hard 2 write the word your, and only ur is acceptable? Yikes!!

Many have told me, I write exactly as I sound so my "voice" comes across in posts, emails and IM's and by the same token, I never say or do or promise anything I wouldn't offer in a real time, face to face situation. I wonder how many can say the same or how many find courage in a monitor and keyboard?

And you Mr. Drive-By Snark and Run, I wonder just how disconcerting your visage is that you have to hide behind a machine?

Claudia, no chicken feathers here, just lots of repetition....give me patience :)

Back to knitting tomorrow but before I go, here's yet another adorable picture of the P-Man, cause I'm ornery that way, hehe.....

Yeah you've said it girl!!!
Give the P-Man a big hug from me. He's adorable!!!

Barbara said...

Hugs to your fur-person, however different he may be from my fur persons. Here's to diversity! And I would understand it if you said my Siamese girls look a bit boney in the face - they just don't have that lovely plush look your boy has. They are MY fur-persons, and I love them, too.

Knit if he'll let you!

It's obviously a problem with his eyesight. The Pman is adorable!

Christina said...

Definately an eye problem there on his part ! :)

Liz said...

I believe men "pick" on women to hide their own insecurities. "It" must be reaally small.... The pman is way cute!

Take that, Asshat!

On the other hand, getting nasty comments means that you're now popular! You know, like Wendy popular! LOL Just as I would not allow someone into my home to insult me, so I would not allow this yahoo into your blog. Can you ban him permanently? Dorothy aka Missouri Star

Debi,
I'm gonna say this because I know you. If this spoken of "asshat" feels he "needs" or "can" pick on someone, who better to drive him in the ground then you, the most articulate person I know. I have only one thing to say to "Asshat"...Just because your head's in the sand won't soften the blow of a genuine ass-kicking... Take care Deb...and just to annoy you, since that's what I do best "Hope 2 B N touch soon. Ur 2 cool!"

~Happy Knitting,
Grasshopper

He's just trying to get your goat...not worth worrying about. Some people have small minds and...
I think you pegged him perfectly.

You know what I say to Mr. Anonymous? To each HER own. In MHO I don't find many Siamese that attractive. But that's me, and I won't knock anyone owned by a Siamese for loving their cat. That's just stupid, and especially not on their birthday. That's just fucked. Oops, can I say "effed" in your comments? Me=Pottymouth, but you already knew that.

And there is something so animated and endearing about P-man, that I just wanna "hug him and squeeze him and name him George"

It's your blog hunny (even IF for some dumbass reason I though it was based in Tampa, and not Ft. La) and you can post what you wanna.

Heather said...

Aw--My comment didn't show up! Bummer, 'cause it was really good, something about the dude being a dick....

Oh well.I think your kitty is super cute!

Emma said...

You tell him !
Some people just amaze me.

Diane said...

Pumpkin is adorable! He has such a sweet face. I don't get why anyone leaves negative comments on blog. If I don't like something on a blog, I surf around to something else!
Welcome to the RAOK ring!

Janet said...

I think your kitty is adorable.

Allena said...

oh and i was going to comment on how cute your cat is! like you wanna hug and cuddle with 'em! so loveable!

Kris said...

That jerk has got a bad case of short man's syndrome and I'm willing to bet he lives with his mother, wears plaid pants and hasn't had a date since 1972!

Thankfully Pumpkin knows how to conduct himself in a much classier manner than that creep! Delete that guy and block him from your comments....he's not worth the bandwidth!

I think he's just adorable!Hug him for me.

Kimberly said...

*hugs* to you and your furrbuddy! I think that he is absoluetly adorable!! His face is darling!

Samantha said...

Ugly my ass! He is adorable! I have a big drooly Saint Bernard and I really want a pug and I think that droopy jaws and flat faces are beautiful!! :-)

Sharlene said...

Very weird. I mean, seriously, why bother? Sorry you had to have a visit from such a grouch. Its your blog, and you can blog how you wanna!

alltangledup said...

pumpkin is a real cutie... and that's not because I'm partial to flat faced creatures. Something about marmalade kitties...

snowballinhell said...

How could someone not love that face? Pumpkin is adorable.

Kristen said...

Pumpkin is super cute. I hope he didn't hear those nasty comments some ignorant fool had to say. I am sure that he gets plenty of well-deserved loving, though.

*sheesh* What the heck has happened to the basic "if you can't say something nice, don't say anything at all" rule? I mean, really, my 4 year old has that one pretty well mastered.

The only thing that matters is that *you* love your little man. He looks like a real sweetie.

Miss_Critiki said...

I'm thinking that this guy must be blind for sure. Pumpkin looks like he wants to play and get a kiss on his cute cute button nose!

Agnes said...

Never mind that asshat! Pumpkin is adorable!

Agnes said...

Oh, BTW, I show Pumpkin's pic to my husband and he said he's cute too!

I'm just randomly linking from knitting blog to knitting blog and ran across yours. Your cat is awesome and super-cute! Don't listen to the idiot who posted. I've got two maine coons but I love -all- cats.
