At the top of my blog, just below the menu, is says – “Those who mind don’t matter, and those who matter don’t mind” – IN FACT ON EVERY SINGLE OF MY 2000 OR SO PAGES ! …
The same line has been there for a couple of years now 🙂
So it confuses me why anyone would condescend to give me advice (in public) on my caring what other people think of me …
A recent commenter told me they thought the title of one of my photos “offensive” and went on to tell me that they thought I’d offended other people because of “reasons” (undisclosed “reasons”) … ALL ENTIRELY IRRELEVANT TO THE TITLE AND SUBJECT OF MY POST, I might add, which is why I provide a comment box …
Ricky Jervais said it pretty well :
We have to stop this recent culture of people telling us they’re offended and expecting us to give a fuck.
