SIR A-ONE cries out!
I have seen more than enough on the blogosphere in the recent past. At times I wonder if some persons are just bones in others throats. But I believe it’s the human nature, to always abuse people.
This is coming from one of my outpour on a Group to a member who was busy abusing the Administrators of that humble group.
This is it.
“We don’t critique names, but works.
I’m not an Administrator in this group you’re busy gushing diss and abuse_
I respond only when I see the need to.
I’m not perfect, neither will I judge anyone to be.
Being an Administrator is a Herculean task.
Appreciate them. They are humans like you. No hard feelings.
You don’t know why some persons respond once in a while.
I’m a nobody, but daily I have over 3,500 comments to moderate on one single website. Most of these comments are not even on the recent published works on the site. Some of them are on MOST READ, MOST COMMMENTED etc.
Over 80 works (Friends/Posts) to approve/delete/block/ignore on <Facebook> in over <18> Facebook groups DAILY. Pages are there as well to keep active from time to time.
How about my Facebook wall? Tags to hide and approve daily with brief responses to the reasonable ones.
You will not want to know why I don’t know how to use Twitter. Story for another day.
Over 50 works to go through daily in order to know the publishable ones. It can be very devastating to know that out of a minimum of 50, only 6-13 will qualify for publication. Thereafter, sent to the appropriate quarter(s) for onward blogosphere activities. It becomes a headache when you see some of the works with so many lapses. Some will hurry to type and not even bother about the proofreading_
They will just submit for you TO kill yourself by yourself.
N.B: The acceptable ones are not only going to one website.
Some will submit humdrum pieces and say it’s poetry.
Is poetry the only genre of Literature?
I still have several works <Pending> on my mail to attend_
I’m not lamenting, it’s where I find myself. The blogosphere is my home. Despite that I hardly respond to those simpletons and complete nincompoops that parade themselves by the names ‘Active Facebook Lords’
Not only Lords. You are a complete GIN. Go drink yourself to stupor in every sense of it.
You once said in Class years ago ‘He is a complete Fool.‘
I think that was the greatest insult in my existence so far.
I swallowed anger and vowed to chase my dreams.
Not even 9% of my dream(s) have been intercoursed the way I wanted.
My heart went into my toe to circulate blood, when I received a mail from him to publish.
Thesame icon who said I was a fool as my Teacher back then.
What a small-big World we live_
Another was one man I submitted my manuscript for him to proofread. He gave the manuscript to someone else to return with a note
“I cannot go through your work.”
Almost a decade ago.
Apologies for that digression.
It has come to an extent I hardly reply to inbox like: “Hi, hello, what’s up” etc on Facebook and WhatsApp. If I should spend my time with you, it must be meaningful from the outset. I expect to see things like:
‘Hello, this is Mr. So and So. Making this and that equiry’ instead of flocking my inbox with garbage_
I’m a Learner like You. But the burden I bear daily should not make me diss or abuse anyone in any area and facet of Life.
I value people and their portfolios.
More ink to our writing weapons now and always.”
God bless us all.
