It’s funny, but the days volunteering in the forum is awful have something in common with the days when working in the forum is hilarious. That thing? The presence of complete morons.
EG the following conversation, tagged (with apparent sincerity) “Thoughts of a genius.”
A conversation with Jesus
Oh, How I wish to forgive and just forgive
So I be at peace, in relief
To target an area in heart of hopelessness
With a hand that digs out in me forgiveness
So I myself as well be granted happiness
Finding it hard due to some carelessness
I had a conversation with Jesus one night
Who he himself whispered good news in my ears
Brought about solutions to let disappear my fears
He indulged me in tunes by singing lyrical vibes of Mathew 6 verse 14
I danced to the rhythm yet never thought of stopping nor pausing
He told me forgiveness is an act of intention
An alarm or signal towards the perception of reality
Without a gun on my head but it being voluntarily
This is a tale of a line between the perpetrator and the victimized
Where the victimized abandons the negativity of emotions
Rehabilitating the perpetrator purposefully forgetting sadism
Ultimately seeing light in the tunnel of possible reconciliation
Withdrawing from the strings of hatred that has us by our tongues and fingertips
Withdrawing from future plans of vengeance
With his voice of tough love, firm but loving, told me
Forgiveness is a lifting of a burden suppressing the life within
And yet a contradiction between forgiving and forgetting
For memory and heart is photographic
For the heart is sacred than the mind controversial as it should be
For with peace seeking through introspection and
Forgiving no eye shall be prohibited to see
I may not be looking forward to calling you a friend
Or invite you for lunch or a sip of coffee
I may not be looking forward to welcoming you inside my home
Or inside my heart for that matter
But I’m definitely looking forward to letting my heart be at peace
He made me realise that we should forgive ourselves
For not forgiving others in the journey of finding healing
Emphasizing that a good heart does not await an apology
Though it taketh a good man to accept it
It taketh a great man to maketh an apology
The blog I need help with is mcgeniusthepoet.wordpress.com.
Jesus is not available to answer your questions in the WordPress.com technical support forums. Thursdays and Sundays are His days off.
Well, this should end well.
Flounce Bingo, the national game of the Internet
There are some people the internet will miss, and me as well. And then there are some who…well…
So, I’m an admin in a hacker group on Facebook. This is challenging enough with people who are real, rather than made-up personas, and who speak English rather than some garbled patois known only to troll forums, intelligible only to RealGirls and other similarly mentally-challenged persons or entities. But not everyone who is there is real, sane, fluent in English, or respectful of boundaries.
Since I am identifiably and undeniably female on Facebook, those persons feel that I must be the most welcoming, friendly, helpful, and empathic admin.
This is a mistake.
Here is one of them. Let’s mock him, shall we?
Via completely, utterly unsolicited private message on Facebook:
Well, gee. Glad I could help.
Edward, you’re welcome.
I guess Mercury is in retrograde or something, because the forum is just full of these assholes lately.

Ah, kids today! Who knows what crazy japes they get up to, eh?
Well, this for starters:
WORDPRESS ADDED MY EMAIL TO SPAM!!!!!!!
I use an e-mail address SPECIFICALLY and ONLY for wordpress and it is now receiving spam. If you can’t keep my email off of a spam lists, how can I trust you with other sensitive information!!!!!!!!??? I am now receiving spam from all these weird Canadian medications and viagara.
Additionally, now I just got a domain renewal from a SPAM site to renew my domain!!! ([email redacted] says that if I don’t send them lots of money my domain is going to expire. HA!) This is ridiculous.
You guys are a total joke and I plan to take my business elsewhere.
Actually this is your doing.
You have a custom domain. As you know, there is an upgrade called “privacy” which is available at an extra cost. You did not purchase this. Therefore, all the data you put in to register the domain, eg actual physical address, phone number, and email, IS PUBLIC.
That is where the spammer got your email, and how they knew you had a custom domain.
If you look it up here, you can see EVERYTHING http://whois.online-domain-tools.com/
I will refrain from doxing you in the forum, but your email is WordPress at your last name dot com and the last two digits of your phone number are 29.
Well that is one thing. But my PRIVATE e-mail address? They make my private e-mail public? That is a joke if it’s the case. Most websites make the person’s Name, address public. They never mentioned e-mail address. If so I was totally misinformed, again shame on them.
ALL domain registrations require that information, and they make it public unless you pay extra. It’s US law, I believe.
yeah. I freaking got it. Can you take it off???
I have another domain registered via google sites and it’s not public all that information and it’s FREE. delete your previous post while I figure the hell out how to damage control this. I want my site deleted ASAP.
I can’t delete my post any more than you can delete yours.
It’s US law, I believe.
Not only in the US. I think throughout Europe also.
You can delete your site, but that won’t get your information back from the spammers; it will remain public until the domain expires.
Hey Raincoaster delete your direct link to my information. Are you really that mean?!!!
Well it doesn’t work like that with google sites. I’m not giving you people my other domain name, but whois doesn’t show any of that information.
I cannot delete my post any more than you can.
why. why the hell would you think of doing that?!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I hate exclamation marks.
BTW your domain at blogspot is not a custom domain, so you didn’t have to put in that information. If you had registered a custom domain for your blogspot blog, you would have put in that information and yes, it would be public.
If you had stuck with http://foodmakesthefun.wordpress.com/ here, you wouldn’t have had to put in that information and the information would not have become public.
What a coincidence, I hate motorcycles and old men who ride them!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Hating on a charity ride to raise money to fight cancer? I should have put your dox here.
Were you really a freshman in 2004? Because you sound like one now.
Oh goodness me, what a surprise!
Poor Andy, I really do have to get that changed.
Seriously, Andy, I PROMISE to get that changed. Right after I’ve wrung every ounce of amusement out of this thread.
Backstory: I was the first person to have a custom domain on WordPress.com. The staff wanted it to be a surprise, so Andy registered it in his own name. Since that time, he’s gotten crazy flaming hatred from a number of people I’ve crossed online, probably including but not limited to the esteemed Sue Basko, Esq, and now including this twerp. Seriously, I very obviously don’t dox her and she goes apeshit. I should, but her mommy probably took her phone away by now anyway, so what’s the point?
By the way, her (custom domain-free) Google Site is ranhanstory.blogspot.ca/ if I’m not mistaken. And it looks like I’m not.
