I now live in the state of Kentucky, so I support the Kentucky Wildcats. Having said that, I don’t care all that much for basketball but I never say that too loud over here.
I will say this pretty loud. Let Ashley Judd enjoy her basketball team, the Kentucky Wildcats, in peace. She’s pretty fed up with all those abusive tweets she’s been getting on Twitter and she’s researching legal action. I say good for her.
Like Judd, I detest bullying of any kind and that includes social media bullying. Right here, at this little old blog, attempts have been made to leave mean comments to me and to some of the readers here who make comments. You probably haven’t noticed them very much, because I take them down. I mean, I let things go to a certain level—but if a person starts to get out of hand, their comments get deleted.
I will sometimes take a step beyond this. If a person continues to be a bully and/or continues to be mean, that person will be banned from the blog—or at the least the computer they are using will be banned, and that’s forever. Yes, I have that power if you can call it that. The way I look at it is life is too short to constantly be reading somebody’s meanness, so I don’t.
Of course, most of you who read this blog are polite and courteous and I try to thank you for that by keeping the bullies out of here.
Let’s all play nice. Go Ashley Judd and go Wildcats.
