Responding to weird/mean comments and DMs and emails

I’m not sharing who sent these to me because I don’t think they deserve any attention. I just wanted to share this in good fun. I was talking about them with a friend of mine a few nights back and thought it would make for a good laugh, or at the very least a smirk.

Normally, I don’t let comments like this see the light of day, but I’m feeling a desire to clap back. And sometimes, you just have to clap back.


herd ur short on cash. how much can i give u for a pic of ur feet

No. No. No. God no. Never. No. No way jose. No. No. No. No thank you. No. I cannot stress this enough… NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO.

I bet your ugly and that’s why you won’t show your face on your blog.

You are correct. I am the human embodiment of Princess Fiona from Shrek and I’m so damn scared that people are going to figure that out, I won’t show my face.

You are annoying.

Then why are you following my blog?

You are an idiot.

Again, why are you following my blog?

I have a medication that could help you with your anxiety and I was wondering if you’d like to purchase some?

While I thank you for this kind and generous offer, I typically don’t purchase medications from strangers on the internet.

ur blog sux

Then don’t follow it.

There’s something so sexy about your anonymity. Would you show yourself on cam for me?

Not for all the money in the world.

C***

Did your mom teach you that language?

You act all high and mighty but the truth is you’re not better than the rest of us. We’re all losers here.

I actually don’t think any of us are losers. I also don’t think that I act high and mighty. I know who I am, and I’m actually incredibly insecure. I would never act as though I’m better than anyone else.

you bought your followers

Sorry, no. Had I bought them I likely would have done it the first weekend I made the blog so that I could have been popular from the get go. I wouldn’t have waited a year to do so.

The lack of god in your heart is the reason why you’re suffering. You could be free, all you have to do is believe

I don’t really consider this mean, as I don’t think the person who was sending this is mean, I just consider this to be kind of… stupid. This is also a really quick way to piss me off. The implication that one’s religious beliefs has anything to do with mental illness is fucking ridiculous. There are plenty of deeply religious people in this world who attend church, give their hearts to the lord, devote themselves and do everything that their religion asks of them and they suffer from mental illness to extents that we couldn’t even begin to understand.

I bet you’re a man and that’s why you don’t show yourself.

I won’t lie, there are definitely days I wish that I was.

You whine a lot on your blog. I don’t get why people think it’s good.

It’s my blog, I can say what I want to on it. As to why people think it’s good, you’ll have to ask them. I have no mind-reading capabilities.

You’re kind of whiny.

I feel like you get me. You really, really get me.

Want to make some money fast?

Does it involve pictures of my feet?

Your spelling sucks. Have you ever edited a single one of your posts? Your blog is painful to read.

My spelling does suck. If you’d like to apply for the position of editor of #MillennialLifeCrisis I’m sure we could arrange something. The pay will be zero but I’m an easy going boss and I give out free cookies. You get back to me if you’re interested!

      1. To be honest, I don’t even notice it if there are any mistakes. I briefly read through mine once before publishing it, if I notice anything after that, I either leave it or edit it depending on what I feel like that day.

  1. Wow, that’s just crazy. I know I got a comment about my spelling and grammatical errors earlier today but I let it be because I know that’s my weakness and don’t have the money to hire a editor because #poorcollegestudent lol. Keep up your good work, and keep shelling out blogs please 🙂

  2. You may have dismissed the foot thing a little too quickly. I mean, no one has ever seen you and obviously no one has seen your feet so I feel like you could scam the scammer by sending him pics of someone else’s feet.

    Chicken feet would be a good start. If the person asks if you’re joking, send a pic of a hairless cat’s front paws…

    You seriously could have some fun with this and maybe make some cash too. 😉

      1. If you click on the “site” tab and then click on “comments,” there’s an option for you to view spam comments. Spam can vary from funny to downright weird.

  3. You’re right. They’re hilarious! I don’t get why if/when people don’t like something or someone they’ll say that whatever it is that irks them is:
    -corny
    – ugly
    – stupid
    When I don’t like something/someone I DON’T LIKE OR FOLLOW them. To each his own about what they do and don’t like.

    I can’t stand boxing, wrestling, UFC or anything of the kind. So guess what? I don’t waste my time following it. More pleasure for the ones that do.
    Maybe those people needed something to uplift whatever they were going through or felt about themselves. But, since i don’t know them, I can’t say why, but you go girrrrrl!

    1. You make valid point here. If you like something – follow it. If you don’t, there’s no need to be rude or mean or weird. You just have to not follow them.

  4. Ugh, the “lack of god in your heart” one irks me to my core. I’m not super religious anymore, but I attend church regularly, and I do believe in God. Guess what! I also have chronic anxiety and recurrent depressive episodes, and I’ve been unemployed for 4 months. Having “god in my heart” doesn’t change suffering. Suffering happens regardless. Even when I was super religious, I had chronic anxiety and minor depression. I just don’t understand that line of thinking. It’s the same line of thinking that leads people to repeatedly tell me that “God has a plan” for me and I’ll get a job in “His timing.” Cool, how does that help me pay my bills this month? /end rant. Some people just don’t think before repeated nonsense that they think makes them sound considerate and caring.

  5. If people put that much effort into being positive instead and supportive, we would live in an infinitely better world. But no, people who hate their own life try to make it seem better by demeaning others. It’s actually really sad and pathetic. ❤️

      1. Exactly. They are trying to find issues with what you say. If they really didn’t enjoy what you were writing or didn’t want to see your posts, they would just unfollow you. It’s people who have nothing better going on their lives than to mock others.

  9. I’m actually kind of jealous that you get messages like that. Mine are always run of the mill narcotics for sale or my blog supposedly having duplicate content which is why I don’t rank higher on Google searches. Because I’m so concerned about my hobby blog becoming known the world over. 🤭

  10. I am beyond fascinated by the people who send any social media communication like this. I always wonder if they look for people with a lot of followers so they can blend in and make these comments? Or are they really this mean/hurt/unhappy? Are they waiting for a response or do they walk away after making these comments? You did a great job responding.

    1. A couple of those listed above are the same person. I think they’re hoping for a response from me. Most people though, I think they just say things to blow off steam when they don’t know how to cope with their own lives.

      I did get two (not included above) from someone proclaiming they know where I live. Those were very creepy. Those types of people who send stuff like that, I don’t find that so funny or innocent. I think there’s real ramifications of sending notes like those.

      1. And they should be reported to any authority that is interested. There is no call for even the most idle/ambiguous of threats. I don’t know your philosophy on firearms, but my response to such a message was an invitation to come over and meet my buddy Winchester (my 12 gauge shotgun I’ve had since I was a kid). I also forwarded the message to the forum admins and copied the message and metadata to give to police if it became a real issue. I have no idea if anything was ever done (kicked out of forum or other), but I have not received such a message again. I don’t allow for such nonsense in my life online or IRL. It’s one thing to disagree with you and make some silly nasty comments. It’s something completely different to bully and/or threaten someone. Fun post by the way. Great responses to those comments. Made me laugh. Thanks for that.

      2. Thanks for your note. I’m not one for firearms, and while there messages did creep me out, the house I’m in (my parents home) is next door to two police officers and across the street from two police officers. So from that perspective, I am not worried. I just think people can be real creepy at times and it’s part of the reason I’d like to move to a big city – then no one would find me.

        Also, thank you for the compliment. I really appreciate hearing that I could make you laugh!

  11. Wow, it never ceases to amaze me how nasty people can be for no good reason. I just tell myself they must be in a lot of pain to have to lash out like that. But…. “they” say that’s how you know you made it. The moment you have some haters. Idk if it’s true or not but I do know I love your blog and think you are a total badass. Even if you have chicken feet!! 🔥🧡🤣

  13. I weirdly love this blog post! I completely agree with you on all counts. I had a guy ask me about my feet when I broke my toe when I stupidly post it on Instagram. He wanted to see my broken toe, not my good ones but my broken one! I just laughed so hard and never replied. Keep up the good blogging and happy new year!

    I sometimes share bad comments on Twitter from time to time. You have to clap back in some way as you say, since managing crappy comments can be a massive pain in the behind.

    Sad to see some really nasty ones in your list though.

  15. There are a lot of unhappy people out there. I am sure that all of us bloggers have received some negative comments. My two favorite negative comments to my blog? When one person did not agree with my opinion and told me to STFU. Another told me that I write like a tenth grader. Keep up the great work and as they say, let the haters hate.

  16. You often make me laugh. I love that. Honesty is great.

    I also appreciate your response to the “lack of god” comment. I’m one of those people who loves God with all my heart, yet I’ve suffered mental illness as well. We are mind, body, and spirit. We can’t paint people’s suffering with a simple, cookie-cutter brush. Humans are too complex for that.

    Keep writing. I know you don’t need my permission. Just saying, I appreciate your blog. 🙂

I haven’t had any haters yet on my blog but if and when I do I will simply delete their comment. That is the joy of having the feature to moderate them! You keep being you. ❤️
