Maybe you should post Notice: you only enable comments that
a.) Agree with whatever you post about?
b.) are flattering to your ego
c.) DON’T contain any new information
d.) would NOT lead to any actual discussion
e.) fawn all over you
Yes, it is entirely true. BlogLily exists within a happy little bubble. I don’t actually want to participate in conversations where no one listens to anyone, where people lecture in capital letters and get other people so riled up or turned off that we never get to hear about the last wonderful thing they ate, or read or heard or did.
Come to think of it, my happy bubble doesn’t have a place for people who tell me to drop dead either. Something about your first comment — the one where you imagined me to be saying something I didn’t say so you could lecture me on something I wasn’t talking about — made me think you were the sort of person whose second response would be a silly email like this. That’s why your comment never appeared. It didn’t sound to me like you were going to show up and talk about your favorite Victorian novel, that’s for sure. And was I really wrong in thinking that you weren’t going to be nice to the good people who come here and talk to each other?
And yes, I do want to be fawned over, flattered and agreed with. That’s why I’m a lawyer. That’s also why I had children. Let the fawning, flattering and sucking up begin!
Thanks for visiting and have a nice day,
