Mean People SuckMarch 30, 2008
Last night when we checked our comments, there was a very unusual one. We received the following comment in our About Wedding Whirlwind section from Marco, an apparently irate reader:
“Don’t you have anything better to do than talk about your wedding to strangers? Or at least something more interesting to write about?”
At first, I was a little shocked and disappointed that someone would leave a comment for what seems just like the sake of being mean. Then I thought a little more about it and was wondering if this Marco has such a problem with my sweetie and I sharing our engagement and wedding story on this blog, and doesn’t find anything we have to say interesting, then why is he reading it??
Maybe Marco doesn’t have anything better to do than to read other people’s wedding blogs and leave rude comments? If he’s so bored and looking for something to pique his interests, then perhaps he needs to find something better to do with his time then read our blog, which is not intended for strangers (even though we’ve met some really neat folks who’ve stumbled across the blog) but for friends, family, and colleagues who are interested in it. With all of our contacts spread all over the country, and the world, this is the easiest and most direct way to keep everyone on the same page.
And if Marco finds it dull and uninteresting, then there is nothing requiring him to visit the site.
He shared his opinion and I have shared mine. To each his own.
While I am a strong believer of everyone having their own opinion, and their right to express it, this is our blog and we reserve the right to publish comments that we feel are conducive to our theme. You will not see Marco’s comment in any other form than in this post.
We wish him well and a very interesting life. And, oh yeah, mean people suck.
