Now this is Candy's latest:
A few people have told me it was wrong to publish the "private" comment Susan left me.
First off, the comment wasn't private. She gave me NO indication whatsoever, at all, that it was private. Now, you nay sayers may just go away now. Bye bye. :-)
PS - When someone leaves me a private comment, they say in the comment that it is private. When someone leaves me a public comment - then I see no reason to not discuss said comment on my blog - since that is the public area that they left the public comment. :-?
A lot of bloggers do this. I like to ask specifically if I can share something or not instead of assuming. However, in this case Susan says that she did tell Candy that this was private. It was private for Candy's wellbeing, not Susan's!
For the past two days, there was a person who was mad at me, because I didn't publish their comment. I don't even remember the comment, but they must have said something pretty nasty to me, because according to them, I had banned them from commenting - maybe I did.
Pretty nasty in Candy's mind = disagree with me on anything. Candy simply will not tolerate chastisement or disagreement.
So, did it stop there? No, this "Christian" proceeded to harrass me, by sending me multiple emails for the past few days filled with such sick, vile hatred, that I can't believe a person would think such means things - including attacking my family.
I would like to publicly say that I do not believe this. Candy has said the same things about me, but since she does NOT allow my words to be published, it is only her words that get out there and I had nothing to prove my innocence. In this case Susan very wisely published her words on her blog so we can see the gist of the discussion.
I set up a filter in my email, so that I cannot get said person's emails anymore, and I blocked them from commenting here (from the IP I got from their emails to me) and blocked their IP from getting access to this page.
If you can't read her page or comment, she ahs blocked your IP. This can be overcome in two ways.
1. Subscribe to her RSS feed on Bloglines or Google. As long as she publishes a feed you can read her posts although not the comments. (Now Candy may take down her feed. this is only a win/win. It means NO ONE else can read her RSS feed either.)
3. You can buy Hide My IP. I have it and so does Tracy and when we need it, it works well. It costs $30 though.
When I ban people from commenting, it's either because they put up an insanely rude comment, or they keep bugging me.
More the latter than the former I suspect. Any disagreement bugs her.
Hope that clears that up. For the record I no longer e-mail Candy and I don't attempt to comment on her site. I keep everything out in the open here.
