Tedious Comments

The other day I posted about how nice it is that, despite the fact that my blog is generally a goofy, unserious forum of narishkeit, I occasionally get a deep and profound comment.

Unfortunately, the opposite is also ocassionally true. Once in a while I get bitter, angry and/or serious comments to posts written with tongue in cheek. To make matters worse, these comments usually have little to do with the actual posts; rather, they are usually tangential or unrelated to the point I was trying to make (goofy though it may be).

Unfortunately, rather than ignoring them, I often take the bait and find myself engaged in silly, pointless sparring with these humorless souls. These sparring matches are tedius and not constructive. Indeed, my first hiatus from blogging was a direct result of the tedium that came from dealing with trolls who were making life miserable with their unrelated comments.

I will try to do a better job of avoiding these traps.

    I know. I found it very hard not respond to that one. And it's not even my blog. Some things just get my goat.
