Just a quick post about my buddy Ryan’s blog
, Boys are Ugly but so Cute. This week, after getting tired of trolls and haters, he decided to shut the blog down and call it quits. Though he’d been blogging for years, he just got tired. I know how he feels. This is why I have comment moderation on all the time.
But I just heard that he’s changed his mind and he’s going to continue. Only this time he’s going private, so he won’t have to deal with the trolls and anons who don’t have the courage to leave their real names on the comment thread. He’ll switch to private sometime this weekend, and send his followers e-mails letting them know how to follow his private blog. It’s not that difficult. I’ve been following several private bloggers for years.
Unfortunately, I had to start moderating comments. I have one of those sneaky little blog trolls with too much time and not enough balls to leave his or her name.
I hate losing anonymous comments on my blog. But due to the fact that this blog focuses heavily on LGBT content, and I’m an openly gay writer, I can’t say that I’m surprised. I was expecting it.
I’ll reopen the thread to everyone in a few weeks. And if the troll returns, I may even have a little fun.
