Anonymous Comment Posters

I have allowed anonymous comments on my posts. I also have no problem with someone disagreeing with me and stating their case. What is sad though is the people who post hateful things or say things in hateful ways and then don't have the guts to post a link to be able to share your thoughts back with them. That is a cowards way of handling it. I do know that some people don't want their name out on the internet. That is fine. I have a couple of people who post comments with clues to me of who they are. Others, like Patti in the last post had an opposing view, but she put her name on it. I just had a comment on my Garden planning post that I deleted. The person did have some good points, but they were put in very ugly hateful ways. Because of that I deleted the comment. We can all learn from one another. If you don't agree with me, share why you don't. Who knows, maybe you will change my thinking. I don't want to go to moderated comments or not allowing anonymous posts, but if I keep getting ugly ones I will have to.

Why do people have to be rude when they comment? I am praying that the Lord would soften the heart of your anonymous commeter.

Well, I really like your site, but I must tell you that I will not like your barn if you paint it that color of blue that you are thinking of... 8-P

so sad Marci that you are going through this. The nasty ones never seem to have the courage to put a name to what they say, or they create a blogger profile just so they can comment with something not so nice. The one thing to remember, a person that strikes out at another, is in need of pity.

Who would make a hateful comment regarding your garden planning?!? That's so utterly ridiculous.... Not that I don't believe you, I just think it's a sad commentary *no pun intended* on the state of the world

That second comment is from my friend, Ginny. She is quite proud of herself, I am sure. =)

Marci, I so enjoy reading your posts and have learned a lot. As a matter of fact, I've shared your site with a friend. Thank you for being so willing to share your life with us!

I agree with you Marci. I have had a couple of nasty, rude comments. I'm glad you are willing to share your everyday life! God Bless!

Why do people visit blogs and make ugly comments? I read blogs for encouragement. If I don't agree with someone, so what? Life is too short to spend it writing nasty or mean things on someone's personal page!
