Pay no attention to the little man behind the pseudonym

The letter “Posters need to exhibit basic courtesy” (June 23, 2013) suggested that perhaps some people would write more letters to The Signal if the on-line bloggers were less rude and unkind.

My first question was: Do people really pay heed to bloggers who make up and hide behind silly names to remain anonymous while they say horrid things about those who actually write, opine and sign their real names (addresses and phone numbers) to be verified by The Signal’s personnel?

Blogging without full disclosure is simply the act of cowards. It’s akin to the bully who’ll confront a more defenseless being — but put a big guy in their path and they wipe their tears and change their underwear.

Speaking of underwear, I was in a group discussion some months ago about this subject. Some reading this may recall it. Humor entered the discussion when one clever person commented that (anonymous) bloggers are seen as “underwear posters.”

Now that’s funny!

Naturally, we immediately envisioned the wimpy little twit who’s life is blasting away electronically (while scratching) to make himself bigger and more important than he is.

Logic dictates that if these smallish poltroons do not believe enough in what they write to sign on and support it, then why would anybody give their garbage any weight? That isn’t debating your point; it’s just sniping from a vacuous head.

Obviously, the problem is that lies cannot timely be erased; therefore, they stand and the victim is in a powerless position.

But that is the world we are in as long as outlets allow blogging versus directing people to send identifiable letters.
Happiness with an honest and good life is important; anonymous cowards are not. Leave them to each other living in their sties and use your time more wisely than reading their comments.
