Public Service Announcement
Dear People with Commenting Issues,
I'm afraid I need to clarify a couple of points you don't seem to be understanding.
First, commenting isn't mandatory, if you don't have anything to say, you can choose not to. Yes, authors like feedback and all that, but I'm speaking about general post and the fact that nobody gives a damn about your thoughts on yaoi. When you post something on the net, there will be people reading what you wrote, please keep that in mind. Do whatever you want in your own journal, but some relevancy on your comments is appreciated, thanks.
Second, commenting on a BNF's LJ or a big community with "first", "first page!" or some variation thereof doesn't make you cool. It makes you look like a stupid moron with no life that spends their entire day refreshing their flist just to post stupid stuff like that. Sometimes you make me feel like I missed a memo where LJ news announced they were going to give out gifts for the people who do that. Really, what's the point? People [usually] write because they have something to say; you're supposed to read the post, not advertise your stupidity about thinking that getting there first deserves a prize. I hardly doubt anybody wants to know how obsessed you are about reading somebody else's LJ that you need to express your joy at being able to hit the "comment" link before anybody else does.
And please, if somebody beat you to it, you can delete the comment, you know? Because it's even more pathetic when you miss [and that's saying a lot].
This rant originated from the fact that sometimes I wished I were wrong. Also, my apologies if I really killed the English language, it wasn't intentional.
