Constructive CriticismI realize I'm not everyone's cup of tea.
I get that.
Some people find me funny. Others do not.
That's all good.
I find me funny. That's all that really matters to me.
I'll be honest. No, I do not enjoy constructive criticism. I'm more of the opinion that if you don't have something nice to say then you should shut the hell up and go write your own damned blog.
I'm pretty sure I've made this clear before.
Also, should you not be a fan of my writing, you always have the option of not reading. I have not (yet) developed a means of forcing people to read my blog.
You're free to go.
Above all of this, should you not like my writing or my blog in general, you definitely have the option of not donating.
I thought this would be blatantly obvious.
And yet, a few days ago I received an interesting donation. One of my readers was kind enough to donate five dollars. As usual, I was filled with gratitude...
Until I read the comment on the donation.
Purpose: suck my ass, literally, it's what im playing you for
I'm sorry. My brain imploded a little bit after reading that.
And yes, this is what someone actually wrote on their donation.
What exactly was the purpose of this comment?
Was it criticism?
The "suck my ass" part kind of seems like criticism.
I don't think I'd phrase a compliment like that.
[GM]Dave>> I'm a huge fan, Jessica Alba.
[GM]Dave>> Suck my ass.
So, it's criticism. Yeah, that makes sense.
That is, it makes sense until you realize the person donated five dollars to say it.
Is that something we do now? Are we paying people to voice criticism?
I could really get on board with that plan.
Anyone who wants to criticize me or just plain old want to say anything mean, you write that shit on the back of a twenty and send it on over.
This is a service I am willing to provide.
Criticism, schmiticism. Money's money.
It'll be just like your LiveJournal only someone other than your mother will read it.
Seriously, who spends five dollars just to insult somebody?
Maybe he's rich.
That makes more sense.
If I was rich, I would totally spend five dollars to insult someone.
Actually, that makes even less sense. Why in the hell would a rich person even bother?
And why only five dollars? Man up and throw down a fifty and start some real shit.
Man, this is confusing.
To think that someone would actually go through the process of donating when they apparently don't like me.
If I had five dollars for everytime that happened...
Do you know the part that confuses me the most?
Do I send the guy a fan pack or not?
