To All Commentors & Lurkers!

Apparently all commentors fit into categories (via Alexia), which are you?

Also if you lurk here and read but don’t comment – what would make you comment (and which category would you belong in!?!?).

    Well – I am definitely too nice – a definite starf****r it would appear!

    Usually, I’m a normal friend, but other times I’m an upwardly mobile starfucker 🙂

    I always knew that about you pair 🙂

    Pity we can’t categorise the lurkers… Stalkers? Shybods? Anything else out there?!

    It appears I’m a genuine dissenter and a starfucker.

    You know, whatever mood I’m in, this sort of thing ruins the joy of blogging for me. I write and I comment because I want to, not because I have to. I like the people I read, I acknowledge that someone has sat down at their keyboard to share something with their readers and the world and I know how difficult that can be. Fuck it, I need chocolate.

    A dissenting starfucker – that’s a new one here – welcome!

    I think it’s quite a lot of fun to be fair, the blogs I read (and those stacked up in my reader to read in future) I do genuinely enjoy and only comment really when:
    a) I have something of value to add.
    b) The writer has caused some kind of emotion – be it a tear or helpless laughter!!!

    Chocolate – now you’re talking!?!?!!?!

    Keiron I can appreciate the fun element but personally I hate this sort of categorisation because it only serves to make me watch what I’m saying and how I’m saying it. I abhor categorisation and will not fit willingly into any type of “box” by choice – it’s purely personal but if you start looking at comments for what they say about the commenter rather than what the comment says, it’s as bad as not writing for your reader or caring what anyone thinks.

    I’m not expressing myself properly here. What you say above is the best way to be, and it’s what I do when I can, but you’ve now become a “selfless emoter” rather than just someone called Keiron who likes what someone else wrote on the blog.

    Green and Black’s Organic. What more is needed? Wish I had the mint!
