Uberlords of blogadom

Ive had a rather amusing time on AdultFriendFinder over the weekend. Perhaps amusing is the wrong word, perplexing is closer to the mark.

I made a comment on a blog from a person who has the annoying habit of going into the Ireland chatroom and making stereotypically comments about Irishness and the identity of it. Perhaps this person thinks it is amusing, personally I dont. Still its a public place and people are free to express all kinds of opinion.

Well, recently I visited the blog of this person, and was somewhat surprised to see, what is evidently intolerance, disguised as parody. Some would call it ironic, following the mass western media bandwagon is neither ironic nor amusing. Again not a problem, people can express as freely as they wish. I posted a comment pointing out my distaste at such cheap and nasty cynicism.

The amusement or rather perplexing position that I found myself in, was when one of the admirers of this persons blog, took it upon themselves to make a direct statement towards me. It started 'Hey Emerald', a statement, a question, it could not be construed in any other way.

This inidividual then went on about 'we' and the problems of intolerance that 'we' had experienced in a particular geographical location during the later decades of the last millennia. I reviewed this comment and decided consciously to reply on the blog, saying I dont know who the 'we' is you are refering too. The comment maker then replied stating that it wasnt a question ???, and said that we could continue the dialogue in the Ireland chatroom where there are people who know what 'we' experienced.

If the character in question happens upon this, or any of the cheerleading squad do. Your reference to what 'we' went through is old hat. Just because you come from a dysfuntional society do not try to shove your standards down everyone elses throat. And if you ever spent time in this town, and if you know anything about it, 'we' dont take kindly to being lectured. If you try to disguise a slur or attack as parody, and then base your justification for doing so on what you may have experienced, it just tells me one thing, you have learnt nothing.

Yours in perplexed amusement.

I am not going to mention handles here. If the people happen to read this, and if they are as smart as they presume themselves to be, they should figure it out. The pic is from the Goons, rather apt I thought.

Some people are nasty little shits. Peeps need to learn tolerance and to live and let live.

I'm so sorry Em, I had no idea there were people out there who still perpetuated the stereotype...I love the Irish, I love everyone from everywhere...The vast amount of different cultures across the world brings Glorious Technicolor to my life...I wish everyone could feel what a blessing it is...

If you wish, I can take the person(s) away in my cuffs, and I can assure you it wouldn't be to "play" with them!

Nipafluff, talking to some other women , no swooning eh.

And who might the little gossipers or gossiper be ?.

I venture that the 'person' you conversed with, lies and passes you gossip for whatever purpose you may have for it. Which seems to be propagation of your jaundiced view here. Personally I dont like liars and gossipmongers, maybe from where you are from you do, (should i do a silly little rofl at that one ?).

As for your overall comment, and your little insinuation of nothing being said, well sad is what springs to mind.

'Nor does the west', so now you're a spokeperson for the west, you seem to have an inflated opinion of yourself.

Demonisation of any race or religion, whether you agree with the facets of it, is surely not what you would propagate, is it ?.

Parody and irony are no excuse.

Tnx for your comment all the same.

    Well, Im another woman and have yet to be annoyed by emerald. In fact I find his intelligence refreshing... not closed minded like so many others who attack and insult in ingnorance.

    May both of you find peace with one another or leave alone.

    Emerald, you're above that.
Divinity, thank you for your kind words and wise advice.

Gata, me neither, still its only words on a screen, so personal attacks mean nothing in here, the people who know me in reality know the truth.

*looks sternly at Em and Nips...clunks their heads together before grabbing them both by the scruff of the neck and throws them into the dungeon...and throws away the key*

But in all seriousness I know u both well and are my friends...you are both warm, witty and intelligent men...Don't think I have swooned on Em...maybe tripped over his feet lol but debate and opinion is good...but when it resorts to personal insults it just seems petty and schoolboyish...

*falls off her soapbox*

Sula xxx

Hmmmm, an engaging, and interesting blog. I am Irish, American Indian, Welsh,Scott, Spanish, and a few others. I see no reason for anyone consider themselves worldly enough to represent the opinion of an entire race or culture. Additionally, Emerald you seem to have done nothing"wrong", certainly not deserving of slander, or the mental torture you have been enduring. Hats off to you, I would have blocked the perpetrator long ago!

Sula, how right you are, i think the schoolboy phase has passed, and no more 'personal' attacks are envisaged.
