As a fellow Xanga user, I can say I've posted about a total of three times ever since I've been here and I have to say I love the website in general. I like that it's not mainstream but yet, I can blog and still get feedback from a sufficient amount of fellow bloggers. I've used this website ever since I was introduced to it around the 7th grade until now as an upcoming sophomore in college.
The things I've posted so far have mostly been about my SO problems and the feedback has been amazing, with some exceptions. But, I just have to comment on how many trolls there are that take their time to comment well, bullshit, when people are posting about problems or something genuinely interesting. For those of you who don't know what a troll is, it's a term for someone who takes their time commenting online for the sheer joy of being an ass.
I posted about my BF problems and I was surprised to see things like "Dump him" and "He's loser, you're a loser, grow up, I have no brain blah blah blah." The comments that I really hate the most on everyone's blogs are "Grow up, this problem is so stupid, you're stupid," and "This isn't even a problem." All I have to say is GO TROLL SOMEWHERE ELSE, a place where it's welcome like Facebook.
I mean how pathetic are you to take time out of your blog reading to say rude things. I mean I enjoy reading the comments and reading someone's random comment that is completely off topic, those are just funny. It's when I see those people that literally sit there and TYPE out, letter by letter, irrelevant and stuck-up comments just to put people down. I wouldn't mind one or two but it seems like these days Xanga is filled with them.
Seriously, go troll somewhere else. Go gossip on Tumblr. Go tweet about your dislikes. It's welcome there. But here it's just annoying. Yes I sat here, and I typed this out, I took time out of my schedule to address the haters. Like most of the people who blog, I feel like writing is something personal and that yes, it's a chance taken when you write something and put it online that someone will be critical about it. Fine. I accept that. But, it's outrageous what people say, and instead of writing novels of insults to the aforementioned trolls, back and forth, back forth, I thought I'd address the problem right here. Right now.
Stop being so close-minded, stuck up, and plain rude. I repeat troll somewhere else. Read a book.
What about you guys, do you agree? Anything to say about this?
