Weird & Rude Comments

Last night I had some weird and honestly quite rude comments left on my blog. That has never happened to me before. 2 of them were from "someone" that supposedly "has" a blog, but doesn't really post. And then 2 of them were left anonymously. They were from the same person though. I know this for a fact and it is a secret how I know.

Now my friend Anna is thinking more than likely she is not going to blog anymore. I totally understand her reasons and back her up ALL THE WAY. I am going to miss all her posts though if she does quit. She has a very unique blog and I always look forward to seeing what she is going to post.
She has been leery of blogging in the past and I don't blame her for not wanting to anymore. There are security issues involved also. I just have a hard time letting someone ruining blogging for me, so I am not sure that I am ready to quit.

I just can't believe that there are people out there just trying to be rude and hurt people's feelings. So.... you will notice that I have made it to where you cannot leave anonymous comments & also I am moderating all the comments. So if you were wondering, that is why all of a sudden you can't access Anna's blog AND my comment section is different.

47 Comments:

  • They are blog trolls and they lerk nice fun blogs and try to bring the fun out of them becasue they are unhappy people!
    I am so sorry this happened to you and Anna, I am so upset about it. I had the same issue happen a while back ( i told you about it) and it does make you feel violated and hurt. Please tell Anna that we will all miss her if she leaves!
    Please donot take what those trolls said to heart, you are too sweet and wonderful and they are probably just jealous at all the wonderful bloggy cyber friends you have!
    LOVE YOU AND ANNA BANANA!

  • So sorry for all the problems. Some people just don't know how t be polite or act like a reasonable human being. I hope you don't stop blogging. I have loved getting to know you and Anna. I check in on ya'lls blogs everyday just to get to "talk" with an adult hehe. Talking with a 4 year old gets repeatitive sometimes hehe.

    Whatever ya'll have to do, do it for safety.

    Hope to hear from ya'll soon.

  • Grrrr...Im so sorry to hear all of this nicole. I think moderating your comments is a great idea, and I would do the same thing. Im so sorry to hear about Anna not blogging, I really enjoyed her blog! But you have to do it or not do it for all the right reasons for yourself.

    I think people do become jealous and misery loves company. Im glad that you are continuing to blog and I sure hope that she didnt take any of it to heart. She is awesome, as well as you!

  • I love Anna's blog! I've been enjoying the two of you recently.

    My husband isn't crazy about me blogging. He flat out refuses to let me post any pictures of myself. Which stinks, but I can understand his view.

  • I'm so very sorry that happened to you. I was wondering why I couldn't check Anna's blog. I hope she doesn't give up because of a few crazies out there.

    I know how much I appreciate it when someone leaves a positive, encouraging comment.

    My mom always said, if you don't have anything nice to say, don't say anything at all.

    I hope you don't give up. I've enjoyed reading your posts.

    By Blogger Just Being Me, at 12:01 AM  

  • Wow, I had no idea that happened to you. Do you know this person or was it some blog troll looking to cause havoc on random blogs?

    I am glad that you aren't going to stop blogging. I enjoy yours and Jennyhaha's posts.

    I may follow your lead and take the same privacy precautions. It's just too bad that the world has come to this. I have seen "advertising" on a couple of memorials for children who died from their congenital heart defects. I mean, c'mon! Don't these people have any type of ethics?

    Hang in there Nicole. You run a good, clean, fun blog.

  • It is to bad people have to ruin it for everybody. I was wondering what happened to Anna. I hope she decides to stay and I hope you do too.

    By Blogger momto3blessings, at 12:17 AM  

  • I was wondering where Anna was? That totally stinks. I've had rude comments before as well, but you just have to dust it off & keep going. You can't let others predict how you live your life or blog, because if you do, they win. I think it's a good that you have made the changes on your blog. That way nothing gets by you. I hope you continue to blog & tell Anna I hope she comes back too! Ya'll are both too sweet & I enjoy getting to know you.

    By Blogger ~CRYSTAL~, at 12:20 AM  

  • I waswondering what had happened. I think that it is very wise to take precautions and be safe. I am so bummed about that. It upsets me that there are people just waiting to hurt others and cause trouble. I really enjoy visiting both of your blogs.

    Please let Anna know that we will miss her if she stops! i am with one of the other commenters...you all have great, clean, fun blogs and it would be a shame for all of us to miss out on that!

    By Blogger Anna, at 2:15 AM  

  • Oh Nicole I was wondering about Anna. I tried to send her an email becuase I though there was something wrong with me for not being able to get her blog up. I am sorry to here that you got a bad comment. I havent as yet but Im sure there will be a time. There are a lot of people out there and not are all nice. Tell Anna I am missing her Blog.

  • Sorry to hear this, hard telling why people do what they do sometimes...hmmm

  • Its the wild west out here in the internet land. Its a license to act stupid for some.

    Its even worse for teens:

  • If someone was just rude I would say to ffffforget them, but if there is a 'security issue' then you need to protect your family. Sorry that happened to you guys, hard to believe, isn't it?

    By Blogger Jamie, at 7:32 AM  

  • I really enjoy your blog and your comments on mine. I tried to see Anna's blog yesterday and it told me I wasn't authorized, so I knew something was up.

    I hope it all works out for you guys!

    By Blogger sari, at 7:58 AM  

  • Awww thanx guys for all the nice comments about me & my blog. I am just still undecided on what to do. I am pretty sure IF I continue, it will be invite only. I just haven't figured out how exactly to do that...but I think I have to have everyones email addy's...which is a PAIN! I haven't deleted my blog yet, I am still just deciding what to do. And just because it says "invite only"...don't think I haven't invited any of you! I don't even know HOW to invite people yet! LOL

    By Blogger Anna, at 8:01 AM  

  • I am glad you are OK Anna....please add me if you do invites and I will be looking for you on my blog too!!!
    I miss you making me laugh...
    the "other" Anna... :)

    By Blogger Anna, at 9:19 AM  

  • Anna...

    If you need my email for an invite just let me know and I will get it to you.

    By Blogger Anna, at 9:21 AM  

  • Oh no...
    that's scary.... there are such freaks out there.....

    so far we've been lucky...
    but then again... mine is just a boring ole "baby blog"....
    we used to get "spammers" but hubby fixed that...

    but... hum... you got me thinking tho!!
    Email me if there is something you think I should change.

    By Blogger Terri, at 9:45 AM  

  • I don't understand why people leave nasty comments! maybe they have nothing better to do then try to ruin someone's day! glad you are not stopping and letting them make that decision for you! sorry to hear your friend is stopping but everyone has to do what they feel they should right!
    have a great day!!!!

    By Blogger Lala's world, at 9:49 AM  

  • I don't know why people have to be nasty?!

    I've had to moderate my comments for a while and then when I thought enough time has passed I changed it again.

    Don't stop doing what you're doing - then they win.

    Anna - if you're reading this, I was just introduced to your blog and it was a pleasure! I wish only the best for you and your family for the future.

    By Blogger Shash, at 10:37 AM  

  • I HATE the internet trolls. they make some of the best bloggers go away. I am so sorry to here that there may be some security issues going with it...A few bad names and comments we all can deal with but when it comes to safety thats a whole new story. I often think about that with my girls too. I give their names and pictures...I am sorry I never read Anna's stories but it seems like she will be missed. Hope it gets better soon.

    By Blogger Tasha, at 11:31 AM  

  • That's rotten, so sorry! I know what you mean though. I haven't had too many problems with rude comments, only a couple mildly irritating ones, but it's got me to the point that I cringe whenever I see one marked "anonymous" The rude ones never have the guts to sign a name and they're always anonymous.

    You have my sympathy!

    By Blogger scribbit, at 11:46 AM  

  • I'm sorry you've been getting rude comments! I don't understand why someone would do that, but then again I don't understand many things people do! I just recently found yours and Anna's blogs and I'm really enjoying both of them. I do hope that you won't quit blogging and that Anna will reconsider...I have missed reading hers!

    By Blogger mom of 2, at 12:16 PM  

  • I saw yesterday that you were moderating your comments and I think that's great. I have no idea why people find it necessary to say rude or inappropriate things on other people's blogs, especially when it's like none of us really KNOW each other, ya know? (ok, well some people do, but I'm sure that they're not the people we're talking about here).

    I also went to check Anna's blog yesterday and saw the "invite only" thing and I thought that I had been ousted! hahaha I'm really sorry this happened to you guys. I've only had a couple of random comments on mine, but I felt weird when they came. They were from men. Not that men can't blog, it's just that when they leave a weird comment it's much creepier than a woman leaving something. Anyway, I love both of your blogs and I think you girlies are great! I hope everything works out well for you guys!

    By Blogger Kik, at 12:20 PM  

  • I'm so sorry to hear that. I have been a lurker of your blog for about a week now. I'm sorry that someone had to ruin such a fun thing.

    By Blogger Ame, at 1:08 PM  

  • That's horrible! I hope it won't affect yours & Anna's blogging! I think it is proper blog etiquette that if you don't have something nice or helpful to say, then DON'T COMMENT, you know!? I often read posts that I don't agree with or maybe don't approve of, but then all I have to do is *click the x on the page and close it!* I am so sorry someone was rude to you- there is no reason for that at all!

    By Blogger Adventures In Babywearing, at 2:21 PM  

  • I'm so sory to hear about Anna's decision not to blog...I loved her posts! I don't know what is happenning out there, meanwhile I'am just glad that I don't have to face yet this king of issues...
    I would be more than happy to give you, Anna, my e-mail to be invited!

    By Blogger Momo, at 2:24 PM  

  • I had a few rude comments in the beginning...It totally stinks and kind of freaked me out. I hope you will continue to blog...dont let them get the best of you....

    Anna,
    I just met you...I hope you will continue...I have enjoyed getting to know you.

    By Blogger Jen, at 2:43 PM  

  • That happened to me on my old blog. I got many rude and threatening comments and some people at my work found out about it so I had to start over and create a new "identity". There are too many haters and freaks out there and you have to be careful what you post. I don't post pics of me or my family anymore and limit the personal information.

    By Blogger Broke and Angry, at 3:27 PM  

  • Sorry you are getting that!! I love reading your blog and Anna's. If she needs my email to add me to her list let me know. Jen

    By Blogger Jenmomof4, at 3:34 PM  

  • i have a blog troll who keeps coming back. i banned her email address and she can't post anymore. i don't understand why anyone would be mean or hurtful on someone's blog.

    please tell anna not to stop blogging. i love her blog so much, and i'm so happy i found it!

    By Blogger Ali, at 3:58 PM  

  • I am so sorry that someone posted rude comments. I don't understand why people don't just mind their own business! I love blogging b/c its a great way for our frieds and fam to keep up with us... sad that we cant trust the internet anymore

    By Blogger Lisa, at 4:25 PM  

  • I'm sorry this is happening to you and Anna. I enjoy both of you and don't want to see either of you leave. What did Thumpers Dad say....If you can't say something nice, don't say nothing at all!

    By Blogger Robin, at 6:16 PM  

  • Oh Nicole, I know where you are coming from and I would be very upset to when this happen.

    Now I know why I can't log on to Anna's blog now. Still, hope you'll both stay around.

    By Blogger Shionge, at 6:21 PM  

  • I learn something new about blogging everyday! I have not heard of blog trolls until now!! I did get some spam comments and had to set up to get rid of them. So - this may be a dumb question but I'm still learning all the in's and out's...can you delete other people's comments? when that happens can you remove them?

    By Blogger Lori, at 10:19 PM  

  • UGh.. I'm sorry you had to deal with that, It's not right. But then there are some not so nice people out there ~sigh~
    I'm sad about Anna's blog, I just found it though your blog and I LOVED her post and was looking forward to getting to know her a bit more and reading more :( She reminded me of myself LOL. My DH worries about the safty issues that is why I don't use our names on my blog which sort of stinks because I love useing my childrens names(LOL I was going to say because I love there names, but then thought what mom doesn't love the names she picked for her kids LOL)

    By Blogger KC, at 10:26 PM  

  • What the heck!? Email me or call me. I wanna know what's going on! You're scaring me! Weirdos, go away!!!!

    By Blogger Flawed & Disorderly, at 11:30 PM  

  • Just goes to show you have one devoted friend in Anna. What a doll to be protective of you and herself because of what happened here.

    I didn't see those comments. I haven't checked to see if you deleted them yet. I am sorry this happened. Makes your heart drop, doesn't it?

    Bloglines didn't show me these current postings, so sorry I am hearing this sad news so late. I emailed Anna. Invite only is a good idea.

    By Blogger Liam's Mom - Gina, at 1:57 AM  

  • Ewww, I hate that people do that. :( I was moderating my comments for a long time after getting a really nasty anonymous comment when I announced my third pregnancy.


    I wondered why she commented on my blog but I couldn't see hers anymore!

    By Blogger busybusymomma, at 8:24 AM  

  • Who's being mean! LEMME AT 'EM!

    No one better run you off girl. Just keep moderating and deleting comments as you see fit. We all got your back.

    By Blogger DraMa, at 11:59 AM  

  • Why do people do that? I have had some rude comments left on my blog before and they made me cry. People can be so cruel.

    I love your blog and I hope you don't quit anytime soon!

    By Blogger Stephanie, at 1:13 PM  

  • I had some really rude comments on my blog the other day. Almost cruel. SOmeone said I was so ugly I should wear a papr bag over my head. They also said they didn't want to be part of my lameass blog. Funny thing is I keep tracking them and they come back like 5 times a day! WEIRDOS! Anyhow, I feel almost as if its personal so I guess we'll see:(ym

    By Blogger Tasha, at 3:35 PM  

  • I'm so sorry that you and Anna had to experience the internet trolls in action. I was wondering what happened to Anna's blog, thanks for filling us in. I hope she doesn't decide to quit, and I'm glad you are not letting them stop you.

    By Blogger Nikkie, at 5:31 PM  

  • that is so stinky... some people love to cause trouble.

    I am slowly making my rounds again, after being sick... hope to see you around my blog soon ;)

    Blessings,
    Karla

    By Blogger {Karla}, at 11:42 PM  

  • I had a run of bad luck a while back, so now I do the no-anonymous-comments too. Better safe than sorry!

    By Blogger L-Girl, at 6:17 PM  

  • Sorry to read about your blog trolls (ugh, I'm gone a week and miss a lot, sorry!) I've never been hit by any yet (knock on wood) I've seen other blogs where the author takes on the trolls head on, sometimes very creatively. You're good readers will back you up. :) If nothing else, just hit the delete key and ignore them. It's YOUR blog after all. :)

    By Blogger Lynanne, at 6:31 PM  

  • That's the whole reason I made my comments so I have to review them before they are posted. Some people can be so rude, but you have to just let it go. One girl emailed me several times with abuse. All over something a friend of mine chose to wear one day. yep, people are rude for no reason.

    F**k em I say - keep bloggin!
