So I realize that this is a "public forum"...

But If you don't like my writing, or find it depressing... Why do you bother to read?

I'm not really writing about political things right now. I'm writing about my feelings. It's how I feel. And as such, it's not really debatable. And if you don't agree with me, guess what? I don't really care about how you feel about my feelings. Unless I know you, in which case it's obviously different. If I was looking to improve myself, I wouldn't be whining away on this forum, I would be in therapy, which, of course, I'm not denying that I need.

So if you don't have something nice to say to me, keep it to yourself. Unless you want to identify yourself (notice my comment settings have changed).

Hey, I realize the comments that anonymous wrote and I deleted weren't actually that offensive. But since I've made this my little space on the internet, I get to decide if your opinion counts. And I've decided that it doesn't. Unless I know you.

I wonder about that myself. I got a lot of grief from people in seminary about my blog. I couldn't understand why people kept reading it when they hated it so much. Blogs, like most other reading material (magazines, newspapers, novels, etc) are self-selecting. There are many things that I don't read because I don't agree with their perspective - blogs included. It is just so strange to me that people continue to read and comment (especially anonymously!) in places that seem to make them so angry.

By the way, I know that you don't really know me. But, I know your mom and I really like your writing and your perspective, so I lurk around here.
