Having Followers Is No Justification For Being Delusional

After giving out some much needed advice to a variety of bloggers, I find myself being quite surprised to see that they choose to ignore my wisdom, and inform me that as they have numerous followers, they cannot possibly be wrong.

In the 1940s there was a little German fellow with a small moustache who had millions of followers. Are you saying he wasn't wrong?

  2. In response to your post: This reminds me of the following quote: "You did something because it had always been done, and the explanation was 'but we've always done it this way.' A million dead people can't have been wrong, can they?"

    In response to your comment on my post: I've already been forced to rule out fucking the professor, since my committee consists of two married straight women and a gay man. FML.

  3. All I think about my followers is that they must be as mad as I am! Or that they smoke ! Never thought about being loved and wanted - two things I have never known. xxx

  4. In response of your comment left on my blog:"A washing machine that stops working when you have a load of washing to do, children who don't like their vegetables, a hoover with a mind of its own, a new recipe for cupcakes. Yes, I believe your life full of unexpected twists and turns, but why on earth blog about them?"

    Thanks for stopping by Crap Detective...BTW I never wrote about washing machine, kids not eating vegetables, hoover (I don't own one) and I never posted a recipe for cupcakes. The only thing you got right is that my life is full of unexpected twists and turns and you copied that from my bio.

    Don't worry I won't be following you...

  7. Just a quick response to your comment

    "Are you one of those catalogue brides that Western men who cant get a woman from their own country can order online?"

    No, I am not a catalogue bride, fate brought us together. And you can't just order a bride online, ya know.

  11. I'd appreciate it if you stop by my Blog and tell me what you think of it.I'm curious...

    Oh, and I don't agree with many comments I read who point out the fact that you're British.
    We can not generalize people!

  12. I have deleted your comment on my blog. I'm sorry if you dont like my Scrapbook pages but I post them on my blog for my family to see. Thank you for stopping by but please do not be so rude!

  13. Dear Mary at Civilla's Cyber Cafe

    Thank you for your comments that you have been busy deleting, rewriting, and reposting. I hope you have finally managed to convey the message you were trying for.

    The anti-UK stance was quite interesting; rereading your blog (and your other at http://mrsgrovine.xanga.com/) I can see you had quite a pleasant time in the UK, even if you did leave in 1992. I'm glad you were impressed with our telephone boxes and you like our tea. I am personally not a fan of Tetley, instead preferring Twining. It's not all good news though; I am not a fan of animal cruelty, so I did not enjoy the 'Cat Cannon' video that your son has posted on YouTube. You should set more of an example to him.

    The comments themselves have been absolutely fascinating. I have never spoken to the wife of a Reverend who is racist, freely calls other people 'Retards' and looks down the poor. I find this remarkable from a person of your standing in the community, but this may be a typical viewpoint of the religious community in your area. I wonder what the congregations at Amherst or at Ellendale would think. Or perhaps the Bishop?

  14. I fail to see the hypocracy. I am not bound by any moral code, nor do I claim to have one. As a lover of sarcasm, I can always enjoy someone who gets their point across in a good way. Please point out where your partner has done this.

  15. Whatever happened to 'turning the other cheek'? I thought that was a fundamental part of your Christian Doctrine.

    As for 'Defenceless Old Woman', please see the number of entries she has made in the comments of each of my Blog entries. She is hardly shy and retiring, and was absolutely desperate for my attention.

  16. Shame you havn't got the fuckin nerve to show your real face isn't it. Some little small arse man sat behind his comp thinking hes Mr. Big haha. Feel sorry for ya mate.

  17. I am going to take advice from a colleague of mine, CrapBishopDetective, on your theological position. I am not a fanatical religious zealot, so I do not know for certain what you say is correct.

    If someone is going to become upset, feel degraded, or feel demonized by criticism of their Blog, then they should not leave their house and venture into the real world. Someone outside might say something terrible about their hair, or their clothes, and their world will inevitably fall apart.

  18. The internet is not the exclusive domain for the perverse and meanspirited. Shower your manure on those who appreciate it and leave the innocent alone. You have made a pigsty obviously of your life and now want to do the same to others. Well I am afraid that it ain't gonna happen on my watch. I also noticed the comment you left on a fellow Brit's blog, that of Jo's. I think with the name calling you might add that you are the Misogynist Crap Detective. Picking on mostly women is particularly low and shows insight into your probable relationship with your mum. The Bishop.

  19. You are going off on a tedious tangent here. You will find that most bloggers are women, and I am an equal-opportunities critic.

    But to go back to original question. Do you think it appropriate for the wife of a Bishop, no less, to make racist comments, freely call other people 'Retards' and look down at the poor?

  22. I have a fair amount of followers and I'm not sure why. Saying I'm as dumb as a stump would be insulting to trees.

    PS. Are you saying my grilled cheese creations aren't art?

  23. I've got more followers than you....ner ner ne ner ner!!

    One of them is the same person who followed me twice accidentally

    But I STILL have more followers than you....ner ner ne ner ner!!

    *raspberry*

  24. I find it interesting that you have plenty of shit to talk, but there are so many comments deleted on YOUR blog that I can only assume you can't handle it being flung back in your face.

    I pity you, you sad, sorry man.

    ReplyDelete
  25. Your assumption powers fail you. As stated before, the comments that have been deleted are by the author of those comments. Not by myself.

    I believe they remove them as they realise they are quite wrong.

  27. Mary.....sort it out. This dude may have pissed you off, but no need to go on a rant about Brits and all that is foul about us.

    I also suspect he's just as rude to men as women.

    Rude...but indiscriminately so....that's nice, isn't it!

  29. Oh no... you aren't a fan of Tetley? Have you tried it with half and half? If you say yes and you still don't like it, then man, we are going to have a problem. I will feel personally offended. But I doubt you'll mind it.

    ReplyDelete
  30. I meant to say "personally insulted" because isn't being offended always personal? Then again, isn't feeling insulted always personal too? Fuck. I am not going to delete this lest I be judged as a coward. I'm posting it anyway. I'm pretty much a hero.

  31. This cracks me up! I am currently in a Social Media class at my school and we have been doing individual bogs all quarter and looking at other people's blogs as well, and you echo my thoughts exactly, just because people follow you or just because you post everyday doesn't mean that what you have to say is worth reading or taking to heart. I love the idea of your blog and will be stopping back to check it out often. Have you ever looked up Justin Hall? The New York Times called him the first official blogger and now he has a huge chip on his shoulder, his blog is the worst thing I've ever seen. Best of luck with your blog!

  32. You are a git, not just for Godwin's Law. It is a pity that you don't have a worthwhile blog that we can measure ours up to.

  33. I wouldn't usually bother to highlight such a mistake, but seeing as you do seem to be in the business of ripping people to bits, it seems fair enough. I think you'll find the "little German fellow with a small moustache who had millions of followers" was in fact Austrian.

  34. which little german moustachioed persona?
    also elephants.

  35. I believe that it is best to use Private Detective to solve the case of cyber stalking or any form of cyber crimes as such. It is somehow noted that this is most prevalent among youngsters and teenagers. Come in touch with http://www.graingerinvestigations.com.au/ No one can as good as the Private Detective in Internet crime cases.
