Ugh! I just came from a blog (non medical) where the author is an excellent writer and quite frankly I have been cracking up reading some of the posts. BUT this one post was a personal critique of something. No problem with that. But then people who were agreeing with the author really seemed so mean spirited with the things they were saying. I was feeling awful during the entire the time I was reading the many comments. I happen to agree with the author and this particular thing isn't my cup of tea either, but I just don't think in those nasty terms toward another person or their work.
Then someone had left a comment saying what I was thinking, which was basically be more positive and take that energy and do something good with it and they were called a troll and then they got attacked. True no one asked their opinion and I suppose they saw it as a challenge, but I honestly don't get why people have to be that vicious.
I mean I have been to sarcastic blogs and read some sarcastic comments and some are really funny (hey I worked around medicine for 20 years - I get it!) ...but this was different. It actually felt dark in spirit.
I felt yukky like I wanted to shake it all off of me. I didn't leave a comment and I wouldn't want my name over there anyway.
I guess I have led a sheltered blogger's life until now. Ahhh...home sweet home. :)
Now I am going to go play This Little Girl of Mine (one of my happy songs below) and then go visit a blogger that makes me smile. :)
