Or trolling snarks. I don't get it. There is one area where I kind of got into conversation with a person who self-pubs and frequents a lot of the sites I visit, and it kind of deteriorated, so I just steer clear of it now. But some comment was up on Goodreads which is a huge, rambling, sometimes confusing, site that is supposed to be a good hangout for readers and would be authors. (For instance, in one place it says my book is down for rewrite and in another place it is up with the new cover.) Anyway, of course, after I made my TINY remark some asshole had to come back with gee, congratulations, you must be so popular to look at stuff that way. I so bad wanted to reply right there on the site with "Fuck you asshole. Why does this site attract so many assholes?" Except that wouldn't be speaking well for my very own presence would it? The thing is, the blog moderator seems like a nice guy, although if I was a professional diagnostician, which I am not, I would say, definitely Asperger's. Gives out way too much personal, way too personal information, and has a couple of other strange characteristics that leave me wondering. Not my place to judge. But this, FineWhine, is my place to vent, and who ever you are, you know damn well what I am talking about.
I will practice self control and try even harder to stay away. But, even at my age, (considerable) it never ceases to amaze me that there are so many people out there lurking, waiting for the chance to pounce. Always trying to cut someone off at the ankles. Like they don't have enough of their own ground to stand firm on? I'm crowding their fucking stage? Always snarky, cloaked, unnecessary. And they cannot go to sleep at night unless they've lobbed a particular amount of their shit at people. I would say it is tiny dick syndrome, except sometimes it is a female. Although, come to think of it, it usually is a guy.
What is wrong with me that I cannot learn that lesson? Good thing God didn't make me a hanging judge.
