Bitch on the Blog

The Alternative Comment Box, 5 – Fishy

Earlier today, a blogger writes, in response to a post on a THIRD party blog: “You can’t beat Marks and Spencer’s food hall, much better than Waitrose. “

I remark:

“Depends what you are after, Rachel. Whilst M&S quality is excellent with prices to match, try Waitrose’s fresh fish counter. It’s paradise, equal to my local independent fish monger – unless you don’t eat fish in which case it’s probably your idea of hell. Hot tip of the day: Friday you’ll get 20 % off your catch.”

Can anyone explain to me why this, my, comment was taken down?

  1. “people are idiots”
    That is my most often used piece of wisdom and I know it sounds not too wise but honestly, it’s so obvious as to be mostly overlooked

    • You have enough on your plate, Kylie, so will be forgiven for cutting to the chase.

      Since when have I ever taken a convenient shortcut? I don’t call anyone “idiot” or “stupid”. Mainly because my maths teacher, on a philosophical tangent, hammered into us all there is to know about the LOWEST common denominator. Vulgar fractions by another name.

      • I will consider myself chastised! i was taught never to call anyone stupid and I never have but idiot is just as bad. People don’t think or don’t take things as they are intended or think that censorship will ease their thin skin or prevent them having to be responsible for their follies. Some are just uneducated or disadvantaged in some way and those people, I will forgive. It’s those who bother trying, those who are wilfully ignorant, who get my goat

          That’s the type of fodder I need.You won’t mind me quoting you, will you, Kylie?

  2. Sounds like someone was./is stuck on dumb. A good fish monger is a joy to have handy. I miss the fresh fish selections available almost everywhere in northern California. Beyond that, who knows why ba blogger deletes any comment if the purpose of ba blog is to entertain, discuss or debate.
