Dear Bloggers, Readers, and the General Audience,
I have been reading a lot of blog posts and even more comment posts.
I have come across two different conversations in the comments section of two different blogs that have been inappropriate.
These comment conversations have discussed body parts in a context of scenarios of intercourse and or sexual behavior.
I think that comment conversations can be about sexual relationships or sexual intentions if they are commenting on a blog post that is a story about sex or sexual relationships or if a blog post is about an actual situation that someone has had.
However the two comment conversations I have read and am referring to were not related to the blog post in question. The blog posts in both cases had nothing to do with body parts, sex, or sexual relations.
I do not know about other readers but I am surprised when I come across these comment conversations and ask myself why has this comment conversation gone in this direction?
My advise when you are writing a comment is to imagine that you are talking to the blogger or the other commenter face to face. Anything that you would feel weird or uncomfortable telling someone that is standing next to you, you should feel wary about writing online. Even though you are posting something on the internet, the internet does not give you a shield it is only acting as a partition that would make an awkward situation or be embarrassing for you if the partition was pulled aside.
If you disagree please explain and let me know.
