I’m always a little astonished when “professionals” come to my websites and disrespect my operations, violate our User Guidelines and just act like idiots in general. In the last half hour, here is a prime example.
We had a guy who left a comment on YanksBlog.com. His comment was inflammatory and vulgar and was deleted in accordance with our User Guidelines. Open and shut – a very easy call on my part. He left a comment asking why his comment was deleted. Of course, that was deleted in line with our User Guidelines (no comments relating to comment deletions, etc.). Open and shut again. I contacted him and politely informed him as to the violations in his comments as is standard procedure on my sites – and many others. His response to this was name calling. He’ll never visit my site, I’m a “Nazi pig” and “long live free speech a******.” He left another comment at YB that I am sure I do not need to describe, as well. Real men died in real wars against real Nazis to allow this guy to call me a “Nazi pig.” Ok, so this is nothing new. Just another idiot online.
But, I looked at his e-mail address and found it has a unique domain name attached to it. Went to the site and found a law firm in Alabama (Mobile and Birmingham). Turns out he’s a “partner.” He’s 38 years old. And, apparently, he likes to play a big man online by personally attacking owners of websites with actual guidelines that don’t allow him to act however he wants. I don’t understand anyone who acts like this. But, a 38 year old attorney? I mean, yes, I’ve always said that idiocy knows no age and bad people come in all shapes and sizes, but does he just assume that he can go around mistreating people and it never will catch up with him? I wonder.
