It didn't take long for the crazies to come a'howling.
I've gotten used to the occasional bombshell being submitted. So long as they weren't terribly offensive, I approved them, mostly for entertainment value and to remain an outlet of free speech.
But what I can't figure out is what it is about my birthday posting that set off the freaks and made the knives come out - anger, amusement, revenge, a combination of these reasons, or something entirely different. If you think the comments I approved were out there, you should have seen the ones I rejected.
I guess someone out there thinks I'm trying to portray myself as some sort of SuperCitizen or Man of the Year, but ya know, a self-admitted heavy metal headbanger with two divorces, a high-school dropout turned non-traditional college student ... that's someone who is not a saint, has a checkered past, still has at least a few screws loose, and is probably not the person you'd want your daughter to have a relationship with.
Maybe I'm mistaken, but I don't think those 83 average daily visitors really care about "who he is" so much as they're tuned in to find out "what crap is he gonna say today".
In any event, thank you for the entertainment which I suppose is your birthday present to me. I'm flattered that I'm so important that I'm worth so much of your time, effort, and passion. I didn't think that anyone cared about me so much.
But please, go find a more appropriate forum this crap, ok?
