I try to make this website idiot-proof for the readers. I do try. This rarely fails because the audience is generally intelligent and articulate. But, now and then, along comes the exception. Sure, their idiocy is frustrating but it does help me improve the website. It gives me insight into the illogical and challenged mind of some.
Like I said before, some people use the success of this website’s platform to somehow think they will make their point. I even wrote an article on it back in early June, Online Haters, We Know What You Are. Take a minute to read it to get the motivation behind these people.
Now, to my point. First, I was expecting an uptick in haters this week. There is good reason that I must wait a few days to share (sorry, I’m not trying to tease) my reasoning. Anyhow, true to form, they didn’t let me down. The only problem (besides their pitiful grammar and spelling) is they didn’t know how to post their comment correctly. Instead of using the appropriately named “comments” section of a post or even reaching me through the “Contact Me” menu link, they went to the entirely wrong place. Fortunately, I found it and will share it with you. I have a sneaking suspicion this person is about to get schooled in how to comment. I’d also suggest they fully understand this website’s Disclaimer.
My reason for sharing it? Well, there’s nothing new added that everyone doesn’t already know. I also find it intriguing how some people manipulate the circumstances, despite iron-clad court testimony and media reports. Crazy! In my understanding, the worse thing Ryan might have said is “Phillies suck”. This, and drinking, somehow is justification for brutally beating a defenseless person. Just to be clear, this was not a fight. It was a brutal attack. Funny how they say my son started this, when all testified it was their smart-mouth friend, Colin McKeefrey. Ah, I’ll just let the trial transcript do the talking on this.
I don’t moderate comments unless they are: 1) redirected to my spam folder, 2) completely off topic, and/or 3) hateful without substance. By now you all know how I relish these comments. The nasty one’s send readership through the roof! It will be a banner day, for sure.
So, here you go. I have not edited these at all, so please don’t accuse me of being uneducated. I listed them in chronological order, from oldest to most recent. Enjoy!
Your son was drinking that night
Yes a fight did happen but they are all to blame for drinking…….. your son started it and got the worst of it. So yes i am saying your son is no angel either….. maybe it would have been the other way if he was not drunk…………
Bad things happen when everyone is drinking
You should stop talking bad about the other family. it was the kids that did this not the parents…… so again your kid was no angel either…he did start the fight……
Remove names of the convicted and pictures
Not sure but i think you have no right bringing up the names of them…. should check with a lawyer….before you say things out of line…….and also remove all pictures of them……… this is your site not a news site…..you are braking some kind of law by doing this…..
Name calling should also stop on your part
does it make you feel better to say bad things about the other family…go to church and talk with a clergy person…….other ways of venting then saying nasty things…. you are out of line……..
Guess this is a one sided family…..where are my posts
So my post never made it….i figured much …i guess you do not want people to know that your son started it and was drinking……. so no good comes from it……may god bless you and your family. no matter who’s is at fault.
Okay, so this person “figured much” wrong. Their comments made it, with my help. Sheesh, give me a “brake”.
Can anyone else see any logic in this? It simply doesn’t make sense. If I understand them correctly they would excuse, say, a parent who catches their sassy, slightly intoxicated, defenseless child from beating them senseless. Really?
Before anyone tells me not to focus on haters, please know that I don’t very often. I guess I just wanted to let you all experience the insanity I must deal with.
