Deep night weird-o commenters

Odd. Outi seems to have again attracted some weird-o commenters, who seem to be interested mostly in just mocking her. It makes me wonder why there are no weird-o commenters attracted on this blog, even though this is relatively popular for a Finnish blog (something like 800-1000 page views a day, not including RSS aggregators). Four possible reasons come to mind:

  1. I am male (most weird-o commenters seem to haunt young women)
  2. I am boring (technobabble, not too radical opinions, and little personal life; not much to mock me about)
  3. I publish the internet address of every single commenter, so you can't be anonymous to the general public (go to RecentChanges, then click on the "Main_comments_XXX" entry, then "More Info..." to find this information). Transparency rules.
  4. Writing in English raises the barrier of commenting somewhat

I don't know. Perhaps I should just go more for the social porn aspect of blogging... *grin*

(In order for this blog entry to be not completely void of any actual content, take a look at the Committee to Protect Bloggers, a web site which lists and informs about bloggers that have been jailed or harassed for blogging.)


I recon number four is the biggie. It's more difficult to be an arsehole if you risk embarrassing yourself in the process by revealing that you're not perfect either. (And no, these people don't seem think think that leaving unncessary stupid comments makes them look stupid - fools.)

Jos hän vain on oikeasti ärsyttävä ihminen.

Ärsyttävyys on useimmiten kyllä kuulijan korvassa - ja parhaalla tahdollakaan noita kirjoituksia ei voi kutsua provosoiviksi :)

So let me get this straight...

You *want* to attract weird-o comments?

--Anne, 20-Jan-2005

Only in a tongue-in-cheek kinda way. :)
