But it seems that some clarification is needed.
Here is the comment that seems to have gotten a certain good-writer/good-speller (the "Good Spelling Commentator") a bit peaved:
"Hey Chris...thanks for going to bat for me on my blog..you're sweet. Don't let Anonymous get to you....the internet is full of nuts. When you're not nuts (as opposed to no news or nose news), it is hard to imagine that others are. But sometimes a nut is just a nut....Lauren (and now I am sounding like one...)"Please note, that this comment appeared not on THIS blog, but on Wandering Mind, Chris's blog. The comment was inspired by something (an) Anonymous (not sure if it was The Good Speller) wrote on MY blog REGARDING Chris, which wasn't nice and which constituted an ad hominum attack (I am SURE I spelled that wrong) - an attack on the person, himself. I deleted it, and felt like I should say something to Chris to make him feel better in case he read it before I had deleted it - because based on the way Chris has defended me on my own blog, I make the assumption that Chris is sensitive to insults and barbs from anonymous sources.
I was not saying that the Good Spelling Commentator was a nut. I was speaking generally of "inter-nuts", which are everywhere, and I went so far as to say that I was beginning to sound like one, myself. I think anyone can, given the right context.
As for the Good Spelling Commentator: I am HAPPY you commented on my spelling. Let's just set that one straight for the record, a'ite? What I do object to is commentator-to-commentator insults and in-fighting. If anyone is going to be the brunt of insults on my blog, it is going to be me beause at least I wield the power to delete if I get really, really upset about something (I do try not to abuse that power and let the less-than-glowing comments fall where they may).
As for "K", who has commented here anonymously before because I recognize the writing style, I am left with the feeling that it is better if I just don't respond to you at all because any response is going to simply exasperate you more and further convince you of whatever it is that you are already convinced of regarding me, my opinions, my vanity, my writing style. That is not to say that I mind your commenting here freely, K. Please, go right ahead and keep on commenting. Your perspective is obviously quite different from mine, so surely it is something from which I can learn.
