|I really struggle with what I wanted to say and if I wanted to say anything at at but if I post something and someone comments 'lol' or 'omg' or something silly I'm just glad they liked what I was posting! It's a frickin compliment! I was peeved by your first posting, but your response when someone complained was ridiculous, they were upset and try to explain calmly an concisely, and you got so angry over it! I am not going to unfollow you, but thanks for pretending to care about your followers|
I really wish you’d sent this message non-anon, because I’d really prefer to keep this conversation private. First and foremost, how dare you insinuate that I don’t care about my followers. That’s deeply hurtful to me, because I try very hard to be helpful and nice to anyone who messages me, etc. The response to the original reblog was ridiculous and over the top and I had a strong response to it. That’s why I put it under a cut. It wasn’t intended to be an angry rant (and I don’t think it came off that way), but to get my point across. I stand by what I said and I don’t think it was inappropriate at all.
That’s completely fine if you don’t mind random comments on things you post. That’s your opinion. My opinion is that things like “omg crying” or “oh wow so hot” can go in the tags. They don’t further the point of the post or help it. When people reblog my stuff and add random comments do I get upset or angry? No. I’m just thrilled that they reblogged my stuff. If I’m reblogging a post that has a ton of random comments, I’ll usually just reblog straight from the source. Simple as that. No hurt feelings.
For what it’s worth, I messaged the person that posted that long response to me and explained myself further, and she explained herself. We had a civil exchange and can both see each other’s points. It’s nice when people can do that, rather than send anon messages accusing people of not caring about their followers because they dared to have a strong opinion about something.
I’m perfectly willing to continue this conversation, if you’d like to message me non-anon.
