this is not about you.

I repeat; this is not about you. You know I love you! This is gleaned from 15 years of blogging and reading other people’s blogs, is entirely subjective and mostly bad tempered. You’re welcome.

Action/Reaction
So and so liked your post before they had time to read the first paragraph.
Roll eyes and mutter quietly.
So and so clicked like solely to lure you to their blog without having to interact.
Hard to spot, easily ignored.
So and so liked your comment, but can’t be arsed to reply.
Comment to get comments and to get the balls of connections and conversations rolling. Oo-er!
So and so sits like a bullfrog on their blog, catching comments like flies, but never returning visits or comments.
That’s bad manners and arrogance; unless the content is seriously good, eventually it gets a big fat unfollow.
So and so followed your blog and when you visit theirs, you see they have 10k followers and fuckall posts. They’re lazily and insubstantially harvesting followers, that’s all. (However! If they have zero posts, they may very well just be here to read.)
Fuck that, I follow blogs where there’s great content and common interests. It’s the difference between steak and a big mac.
So and so arsecreeps for no apparent reason.
Hello Dobby, please accept this sock, kthxbye.
So and so copy/pastes the same old spam in as many blogs comments as possible.
Instant ignore mode. No reply unless I feel like releasing some of the grouchiness. It’s easier than shouting at bigots.
So and so doesn’t reply to your carefully thought out comments.
No moar comments for you, mofo
So and so posts 10 identical posts, to get them on to the newsfeed daily, without being intelligent enough to delete some afterwards.
#nofollow and no more visits.
So and so ends every single post with a carefully worded question to attract comments.
It’s irrational of me to be irked by it. I’m not justifying it, just making a confession. I ain’t doin’ penance though.
So and so says “I have a great/acerbic/sarcastic etc sense of humour in their bio and sometimes in posts too.
Please leave other people to compliment you on it; doing it yourself is like laughing at your own jokes.
So and so uses their blog to spew bigoted invective about minority groups.
Troll. Do not feed or engage.

I’m really, truly not aiming any of these at any of you. It’s all about the great unwashed and amorphous them beyond the borders of us. In terms of current irritations, they’re from blogs that show up in various tag newsfeeds, or that I land on randomly.

Bipolar blog specific
So and so arrives on your blatantly pro psychiatry atheist blog and spams you with videos of their journey to Jesus or instructions to stop taking meds and start worshipping smurfs to cure bipolar.
Shoo! And take your irresponsible and potentially damaging anti psychiatry bs with you. Encouraging people to ditch their meds could make them very suicidal indeed. Etc. I will not debate you, you’re an idiot.
So and so self diagnosed bipolar, or declares they are ‘a bit bipolar’ or ‘having a bipolar day’.
Piss off and shut up, respectively.
