-------------------------------------------Mood: Straightening things out...
To whomever it was that left the hateful messages on my livejournal, and to anyone else who may be offended by what I write be they in my poetry or in my comments:
You may never come back to read this again, but if you do, I want to leave you with one thought. The mean-spiritedness is by no means intentional. I try to give my honest opinion, and I try my hardest not to offend. If the person chooses to feel offended by words I have said (and I know I am sometimes overly harsh), I wish that they would come to me outright, rather than bashing me anonymously. If they are offended, and they tell me that they feel as such, then I will apologize. I also know that a lot of what I write is not something that could be considered phenomenal, but that's the point of sharing your writing: to gain additional feedback to improve your own writing.
And tell me the truth. Would you rather that I leave the mindless little comments of "oh my god! that was so amazing" with a billion spelling errors in it and made it clear that I didn't spend time thinking about what you've said in your poem, or would you prefer that I keep my comments as is. If you want me to change, say so. Tell me to my face! And don't do so in hidden, ANONYMOUS comments.
The golden rule: Do unto others as you want others to do unto you. I DO give comments as I would like to see them given back to me: honest opinions. Can you honestly say the same, whoever you are?
