The Best Motto

Gd, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannon change
Courage to change the things I can
And the wisdom to know the difference.

All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing.

You woke up this morning - Congratulations! You got another chance!

OK, ONCE MORE

There is a reason why I do not moderate comments to my blog at all. That is because I actually enjoy getting them, no matter what (especially when they tend to confirm my original opinion). I do not care if they are signed or anonymous, or if they contain objectionable language or sexual innuendoes; although, with all due respect to my friend, I draw a line at the c- word.

With all that in mind, when some comments leave me with the impression what a person did not understand, or did not want to understand my opinion, I would like to clarify it. When other comments suggest that I really should not be thinking and feeling what I was thinking and feeling, I feel the need to remind them that this is one place where I can freely express my thoughts and feelings.

Which brings me to a fairy recent discovery: the phrase "constructive criticism" is in actuality an oxymoron. Because when you are criticizing somebody, that automatically implies that you think (and maybe rightly so) that you are more wise, knowledgeable, or experienced, at least in this particular instance.


On that happy note, happy blogging and happy commenting!

So what was the comment that prompted this?

This is your view because you haven't attracted any trolls/spam yet.

Barb Chansky said...

Isn't is obvious which comment/s prompted this?:)

Moshe said...

Nope.
Was it something I said?
If it was to one of your very long posts, my attention span is too short to read those. :-P

Barb Chansky said...

LOL!!! That's what my sis said: I should not write long posts, because her attention wonders; but no, it wasn't something you said:)

Moshe said...

And you write LOOOOOOOOONG posts.
So which one was it?

Sally Hazel said...

I printed one of those posts out- it was over 12 pages small font!!!
