"On" Leaving Comments
I decided to write a very important article. Maybe the most important article of 2008. Maybe ever.
Since I not one to write serious blogs about politics, religion or current events you’re probably asking yourselves why I’m writing it and not someone else who is better at those kind of articles. You asked a great question. Why indeed am I writing it?
Let’s look at my blog here at JU. I been a member here since June 17, 2005, and this will be my 54th article. Okay, not exactly a prolific writer. (Hell, I know a blogger here who wrote 54 articles in 5 days)
Seven out of my last eight articles have been part of the JU Writing Challenges. Okay, not exactly significant issues. (Hell, I know a blogger here who wrote 5 blogs “on” significant issues in 15 minutes)
The one article out of my last eight that wasn’t JUWC-related was about why I should be the next President. Okay, not exactly a modest thing. (Hell, I know a blogger here who's so modest he wrote 2 articles in one day explaining why he will continue to grace us with his presence)
Here’s why I should write the most important article ever. The most politically religious blog ever? Nah, it’s none of those things. No, it’s not about any of those things at all.
Instead it’s about the reaction JU has towards a certain blogger who loves to flood JU with his “important” articles. It seems he loves attention and when I read his “important” articles I couldn’t believe how many comments he receives despite his constant deleting of any he finds “off-topic” or despite his disregard for any other JU poster.
So what I propose to all my fellow JUers who have had enough. I suggest any comment you may have about said blogger or his latest “important” article be left here. Just tell us what “important” article you are referring to then leave a comment right here.
I can think of lots of reasons why this will work.
- Having all the comments on one article will free up space for actual well-thought pieces.
- His articles will be bumped down on the forums if he gets no comments at all.
- I will NOT delete any comment not matter how RIGHT you are.
- I will get the points and not him. Hopefully, I get at least 100 comments.
- It will piss him off. Hey, if he don’t care about us why should we care about him.
- It’s a good idea.
At the end this isn’t really the most important article at all. In fact, it’s a bullsh*t article. Hey, it’s what I do best. See, I wrote one bullsh*t article this year. Okay, not exactly on record pace. (Hell, I know one blogger who wrote 100 bullsh*t articles in one month)
