Dr Willy has kindly decided to grace me with his comment on my about page. He is awaiting my approval, which will happen as and when I feel like it. The previous post was a prompt, this one is an opinion post, so feel free to share your opinions here.
I’ve drafted a reply, which I may or may not post, up to me really.
Thanks for following my blog. I suppose your blog is an intelligent kind of spam based on the wish of bloggers to let their ego develop on the net.
I have respect for your intelligence and wish you good luck.
(Kind thanks to drwilly of drwillylip.wordpress.com)
Aside : Willy is a word we use for “penis” in the UK, not that I’m implying that Dr Willy is a penis, obviously.
My draft reply :
Interestingly you’ve shown degree of social intelligence and tact, which does put you a cut above. And of course you are welcome for the follow. As for ego, takes one to know one, an egoless person doesn’t see ego. Your comment seems to come from a fairly weak sense of self because of your need to criticise others that you only know at face value. Spam is an unwanted communication, which a blog isn’t, so I’m afraid you’re out of luck with that assertion. Further, your use of plausible deniability (“I suppose”) and veiled hostility (“spam” and “ego”), are largely unwelcome and unwanted communications in my eyes, so you are indeed generating spam yourself in your communications to me. Two wrongs I’m led to believe don’t make a right, so your attempt to do so would only strengthen my assertion of your own weak sense of self.
Not that I think you’re listening (egotistical people like you rarely do) but I would suggest perhaps in future that you take a look in the mirror before letting lose with your own ego and spam.
That said, I thank you for an interesting comment, which mirrors what I think a lot of men feel about social media. So as an egocentic neandarthal relic, with little in the way of social intelligence, you are not alone, if that is any consolation.
Nice sparing with you 🙂
Over to you guys 🙂
