Basically Good, but Occasionally Creepy

In general, my years of blogging have been good. People are generally nice. Lots of friends find me. Generally, it’s all good, clean fun.

Occasionally someone will find my blog, or some article I wrote, and contact me in a slightly unsettling manner. They might be fantastic people. Probably are wonderful, law-abiding citizens. I just get a weird feeling from the interactions since we have little or no shared background, yet sometimes an individual will launch into a level of information that it may take months to achieve in a real-life relationship. I have a low threshold and tolerance for such interactions and seek to end them as quickly as possible. I won’t go into details, but suffice it to say that 2 different men have creeped me out recently in response to my web presence.

So there are some things that I need to remind my kind and wonderful readers who are not also my real-life friends:

  1. Don’t assume that you know me. The blog is a persona, not the whole me, just a version of me.
  2. Be respectful. Don’t overstep your boundaries. It isn’t cool to start quoting things about me to me, it’s weird and it puts me at a disadvantage in a conversation. I don’t like it and it isn’t a way to impress me.
  3. I don’t ever to know about your sex life.
  4. You go be who you are. I’ll do the same. Vive la difference!
  5. Any expression of my personal opinions, preferences, and beliefs on my blog is not a direct assault against you and your life. Again, I encourage you to be who you are.

I used to have comments enabled on my blog. A severely creepy incident a while back ruined that for me. In fact, that incident is probably why I am so sensitive to anyone even slightly overstepping now. I still haven’t forgotten the one from my past, and I don’t have blog comments as a result.
