First I want to thank all those who commented on my last post. I read all the comments and appreciate all the concern. I also received email from a couple of good friends and I appreciate the advice from everybody.
Next, what's done is done. The post will not go back up but in the next couple of days I will work on something similar.
Sometimes I can be my own worst enemy and other times I just don't do myself any favors. My problem was I let a troll get to me.
Cliff Note:"An Internet troll, or simply troll in Internet slang, is someone who posts controversial, inflammatory, irrelevant or off-topic messages in an online community, such as an online discussion forum or chat room, with the primary intent of provoking other users into an emotional response or to generally disrupt normal on-topic discussion." Definition courtesy of Wikipedia.
I was on a message board the other day(minding my own business) when one of my online friends had congratulated a local talk show host. The host was named number 78 in Talker Magazine's top 100 talk show hosts in the United States. This host had told me on the air when I called his show in August, 2007 to grow (a set) when I told him that I posted on the radio discussion board on Cleveland.com because I didn't use my own name. I wrote a post here that day detailing the phone call, and giving my opinion of this host. The troll in question started posting on that board the next week and I was one of his favorite targets, saying that I was jealous of this man's success. Funny thing is the troll has never revealed his name.
Back to yesterday. the sissy called me out, once again saying I was jealous. I responded that I would not compromise my core moral values to even attempt that brand of "success." The troll then trivialized this blog and another one said "I think most blogs are self serving to begin with. We have a bunch of nobody's putting up websites about themselves as if most people care." But then again the handle of this poster is "Hammersucks" a slam at a producer on a sports talk station in this area.
For the record, I think bloggers do more good than many talk show hosts, especially those who refuse to join the 21st century.
Anyway, I had went to my site meter and saw there was a hit from a link I had posted on the message board. the exit click was to Seek Him First, where I saw the anonymous comment.
I deleted the post because when I wrote the post, I made an assumption about the newspaper columnist who wrote the article I linked to it. That was wrong of me and unfair to the columnist who is not only an award winning writer, but as a Christian is the real deal. I know I have seen it first hand. So it wasn't my personal opinion, but an unfair assumption which brought me to this decision.
Yes, these are my blogs, but I want Seek Him First to glorify the Lord. Having a (spitting) contest there defeats it's purpose.
And if you want to insult me, at least be big enough to leave your name.
