Breathe, People, Breathe!

At some point in the past, I did a quizzy thing that said I should be a mediator, a therapist or something "sit down and talk" style. And sometimes, I think about that quiz and think "what do you know" and pull out the chainsaw.

The last two or three days have been rather strange in blogland, with people messaging people, emails flying in all directions, but especially, people getting hit in the crossfire. Ordinarily, I would say talk it out, discuss it, move on, but this time, I'm popping out the chainsaw.

  • If people are talking shit about you, ignore them. Don't try and mediate, just ignore them outright.
  • People with posts making comments to other bloggers, with posts talking about anonymous bloggers, take them posts down. Like, now.
  • Those of you using StatCounters/Trackers etc to find out who is who is where and stuff, remove it or stop using it - IP addresses, routing, and all that crap is a nightmare if you're not sure what you're looking at.
  • If you're worried what people think of you, lock your blog and only invite those you trust.
  • If you don't like someone, stay away from their blog, email, msn and whatever else.
Don't make me get the leg-smacking stick out. In short, if you don't like people, stay away from them, in person, online, whatever.

At the end of the day, life is too short for bitchiness, backstabbing and especially rumourmongers. Sure, I keep a lot of stuff off my blog, mostly because it's not "All Readers" safe, but most of my life is an open book - don't guess, judge and assume something about me. Hell, if you're THAT interested, just ask outright.

Sounds like there is drama afoot that I am completely ignorant of. I think I like it that way.
