This week has been a rollercoaster of emotions and thoughts. It started Tuesday night with the post about PBS & NPR by Wednesday morning I had 28 comments awaiting moderation – one problem ALL ANONYMOUS! I read each and everyone of them and then deleted each and everyone of them (in hindsight I should have done a collage of them – lol.) I was called horrible names: Socialistic B*#$!, I was compared to Hitler and my personal favorite I was a socialist, fascist B^%$! and I was going to HELL and my whole family was going to burn in HELL for supporting this. I definitely got an education I had no idea I could be a fascist and a socialist at the same time. Many things crossed my mind on Wednesday including shutting down my Facebook Page, my email and my beloved Blog. I want to state I did not get any threatening comments – I don’t consider burning in HELL threatening (I mean some of best friends will be sitting next to me – lol!)
I guess my biggest beef was the fact that people were such cowards! Anonymous – REALLY!? This is going to sound harsh but I don’t care anymore – IF YOU BELIEVE IN SOMETHING BE MAN/WOMAN ENOUGH TO STAND BEHIND IT – OWN IT! PUT YOUR NAME ON IT! DO NOT BE A COWARD AND HIDE BEHIND ANONYMOUS! This made me so mad I cleaned my whole pantry (even waxed the floor in there! In all I had close to 70 anonymous comments. I did have some support comments (that people put their names on them) but in fairness I turned the commenting off on the post and did not publish any of them (mainly because I did not want them to be subjected to what I was going through.) I am sorry if this makes anyone mad but I thought it was the best way. I also figured out how to stop anonymous people from posting on my blog so this will not happen in the future.
I wanted to make people aware of what was happening and make people aware how messed up our government is right now – case in point Wisconsin. I am not going to get into another hot button topic on my blog. I wish I could discuss this issue more on my blog but it is an art blog and I feel it is not appropriate to discuss politics here. I honestly thought PBS and NPR were categorized under the artsy category and I thought it was important to shed light on this. I admit I made a mistake bringing this up on my Art Blog and I apologize to my readers and next time I will think before I act
