A Comment That Appeared in the ‘Moderation’ Queue

For the most part, I try to keep this blog PG or PG13-ish, and because of that I have my comment filter to set aside any questionable comments in a moderation queue.  Recently I found this comment awaiting moderation:

I have a few issues with this comment . . .

1. This person has the unfortunate initials of “F.U.”?  Really, seriously?  I would think that any parent with any common sense would take into consideration the initials their child is going to have for life.  But maybe this person was just trying to say “Fuck You” but was too cowardly to do so and also forget to leave an email address.  I’m not sure why a person would use the word “shit” in the first sentence but be sensitive enough to censure “Fuck You”.  I mean, if you are going to cuss, cuss . . . let it all out.  Perhaps this person is a bit passive aggressive or a bit bipolar.

2. I agree, politicians annoy me too and I don’t much respect them, but I will respect the office that they hold.

3. Come on, this is kind of weak and reaching for low hanging fruit.  Really, does anyone think a comment about my wife having one eye is going to hurt me?  Not a chance, besides I’ve poked enough fun about her having only one eye on this blog that all my readers would know that wouldn’t hurt me.  If this person had any bit of creativeness, I would have expected to see something like, “Your one-eyed wife lacks the perception to clearly see reality.”  See what I did there? I’m connecting how people with only one functioning eye lack depth perception, and connecting that with ability to perceive reality.  That’s a lot better than just saying my wife has one eye.

4. This person only brought my wife into this?  Come one, there was a great opportunity to bring my deceased parents into this, that’s a much better low blow.  He or she could have mentioned how my father, who served first in the Navy and in the Army for a total of 28 years through WWII, Korea, and Vietnam, did nothing for his country because he failed to raise me to become a Republican.  Better yet, there was an opportunity to say that my mother, who was born in Vietnam but later became a U.S. citizen, brain-washed me into becoming a communist loving sympathizer splinter cell or Manchurian Candidate.

5.  I totally agree, I don’t deserve respect, I need to earn it, but some folks I don’t care who I earn it from.

6.  This is totally, totally wrong.  I didn’t vote for Obama because he was a black man, I voted for him because he’s a fellow half-breed.

7.  How on Earth could this person forget that he’s also Muslim?

    He only has one channel at home. Fox news has helped to create this narrow minded and racist idiot. Go get 'em Keith.

  3. Rev. Hart says:

    We love you, Keith.

  4. Mike Martinez says:

    I Vote KG the first half Asian President (it was a write in vote…)

  6. Paul says:

    So sorry. Dissing a man's wife is just wrong.

    I hope you don't lose respect for me when I say I lean right, but nearly everything "f. u." said was wrong and ad hominem bs. If you disagree with the president, that's one thing, but dissing his race is wrong.

    I love your blog even if we disagree sometimes.

  7. Wendell says:

    Keith you've hurt more people than you know.

  8. dan says:

    Keith, you didn't hurt me. You posted a news article, without any politcal commentary on your part, about a news story that has appeared all over cable television in the past several days. The article was about a breach of normal etiquette in political discourse. And for that a reader saw fit to insult you and [for no reason I can see] your wife. I guess you could be safe and just post cute cat videos on your website, but that's not why view your blog every day. You're doing a great job of being entertaining and informative. Keep it up!

  9. David Bryant says:

    Whatever you do, please DO NOT post 'cute cat videos'!

    Geeding – that's why I like you so much. I was so rattled by that comment AND I *hated* the wife statement (I like her a lot too), that I was pretty much speechless. But, dang it, if anyone is going to find humor and basically extract the rainbow, it would be you.

    Thank you for throwing glitter on the ugliness this world spits out sometimes! :-)

    You should respond like The Rock or something:

    You: What's your name again?

    F.U.: My…

    You: IT DOESN'T MATTER WHAT YOUR NAME IS!!!

    You: Here's what I am going to do. I'm going to take your comment, shine it up real nice, TURN THAT SUM BITCH SIDEWAYS AND STICK IT STRAIGHT UP YOUR REPUBLICAN ASS!!!

    That would be awesome. :)

    Sorry you have to put up with that sort of thing. As far as your politics are concerned, I've always felt that you have a very light touch at this blog. Your posts are quite varied – and informative (and fun!). You show a respect for people on both side of the political spectrum, and that's why BagOfNothing is a welcome relief after visiting many other places on the Web.
