Maybe you have a similar peeve as I have though.
Maybe not o.0
Maybe you choose to address the issue differently.
This was my choice of how to deal with this issue this morning.
I have been following a little blog poised from a christian perspective about mothers raising sons in today's world and society which I ran across about maybe a month ago. I'd been keeping my eye on the writing. I always attempt to support writers of blogs by sharing their best posts, and especially by leaving comments and pointing out great ideas they have brought up. , Or maybe it could be just a simple comment on how I enjoy their style of writing. Whatever I can do to cheer them on I make that effort.
However, here's my peeve that reared it's ugly head once again this morning and what I did about it:
I do not agree with an individual as an employee in the workforce, or a person in a place of ministry attempting to raise their position, status or influence in life via demeaning another individual, especially guised as an attempt at bringing correction to another person, their family or ministry, and from a platform where the demeaned would never run across your comments allowing for reply. Also, I certainly disagree with doing so from a platform where the writers themselves seeks to receive financial gains from same.
I choose to not rant my views on their blogs or on-line sites, at least I do not go into attack mode as you might have seen from time to time on sites. Even respectful responses usually spark debate and get you nowhere fast. What is it you would hope to accomplish anyways? After all, it's a heart issue for all concerned, right? I will comment briefly in private if I feel strongly about a subject and am privy to their email. I usually let my "unlike" tell of my disagreement with a point of view if it is severe enough.
Hey, I don't look for perfection. Just a few things are too obvious and potentially damaging to overlook.
Whether the writer is correct in his assumptions or not at that point does not matter to me. He would have lost me. If you disagree with someone layout your points and support those. Answer, how you might correct the situation. Then, allow readers to make their own decisions.
Attempts at swaying someone to your side and then selling them something just comes across a little...wrong to me.
The entire matter wreaks of a used car saleman approach, and the ole "corporate climber", on-line and gone social media mad.
Allow your writing to describe, explain, and support your own views and beliefs without stooping to climbing over someone you just attempted to annihilate to get to where you want to be. Which I have noticed many times seems to be that other person's shoes.
This type behavior for a writer in my book runs the risk of turning readers off to listening to anything further that writer might have to say.
BTW....let me know if as a writer I ever get there.
Thanks for dropping in for our post today.
I know it's been a while :)
