I was reading my blog comments when I found this colorful shout out from a certain “M.T. Inocencio” , he said, “you write poorly”, he continues, “your understanding of history is also suspect, where did you learn this view that Spaniards created the…” well, let me stop it here ( we all know what the next lines would sound like).
Sir, or Ma’am or then again you could be a Sir and a Ma’am in one body. I’m a novice writer, and I must admit that, yes, I do write amateurishly – and I thank you for reminding me but please don’t tell me that I got my education from“…some 2nd rate university with ill trained professors.” for this insults those great college history professor’s I had. Iba-iba ang turo nila. I respectfully disagreed with most of them but I appreciated all of them, now you, your probably an old egoistic man, your heart is full of hate and regret, you would gain nothing from dismissing up and coming young historians, remember you’ll not be around forever.
This was a long and boring ‘comment’ from someone who doesn’t even have the courage to properly identify himself, I decide not to publish it because I don’t want to encourage this persons behaviour.
I’m not publishing this Inocencio comments, because:
First, this cabron never gave me a legit email address (I’m sure he invented his name too!), the email add he gave was bogus (I sent a reply and my email host just kept sending it back) Second, his comment was a novel, its just too long (but I’m flattered that someone would even bother to write something that long attacking this fairly new site!) and there’s nothing on it but deconstructive criticism, a bunch of stuff that really serves no purpose. I would’ve appreciated it if he came up with something like, say, “you suck but continue writing, you’ll get there”, or maybe not. Third and last is he’s right when he mentioned something about ‘wrong grammars’ and ‘ugly writing’, I’m afraid that there’s some truth to this. But hey man, let me say, noted. ^_^
In the past I’ve posted comments that were rather harsh and very critical of my stance but I published them anyway because they take on what I had to say on the post that they happen to disagree with – there’s something that readers can take out of their commentary, such criticism is worthy of space in this small website of mine. i would be the first to admit if I made a mistake and there were times that I did. This openness is good, and I’ve always considered myself a student first, and a student must accept learning from mistakes.
But there are those who would write just to prove that their smarter, arguments for the sake of arguing. Ego tripping lang. As long as comment have some “information” value its ok but if their just out to prove their far more superior, nah I’d rather not put their comments on. I’m dunking their post straight to the bin!
