It happened! I’ve finally received my first negative comments. I did not publish them, as I consider this a happy place, but I have been given a solid word thrashing about my post on Craigslist. I have been duly admonished that despite the fact that I think I’m hot shit with grammar, I should get off my pedestal, as my blog is “aflood” with inaccuracies.
To the Random Grammar Nazi who sent me the three pompous comments: they will never be published as long as they are full of mockery and fuckheadedness. I have a great sense of humor and can totally laugh at myself when I make obvious, glaring errors (or in your case, atrocities). But this is not the proper forum for you to be a prick. Are you going to go to each and every blog post on the vast World Wide Web and write multiple comments to the writer about every single thing wrong? I guess if that’s your thing, then go for it. My advice would be to get out there and get a life.
Nevertheless, I did change my made-up word “ingenuine” to “disingenuous,” and I wrote a footnote about it. So thanks for letting me know in the most dickhead way ever that I had put down a nonexistent word.
All in all, this world is a better place without having every little thing nitpicked to death. This country is more than full of people with mediocre to abominable writing skills, so if you must, write to them; I am positive they won’t even understand you and I can guarantee that you’ll laugh yourself to death when s/he writes back to you telling you, “Your a shithead.” Grammar Nazi: 1 Inept Writer: 0! Right? Right.
So thanks but no thanks. Unless you learn to take your head out of your ass and phrase your critcism constructively, your precious comments will be for naught.
