I've had it with these 'Oh woe is me because no one loves me anymore' posts. Do me a favour, suck it up. You won't garner any sympathy from me with some little validation seeking post.

I'm not ragging on angsting in general, because we all do it once in a while. Or even the specific posts that should rightly get feedback (ie, fanfic). What I'm referring to, are those people who flail about because there's a lack of comments on their journal and they're just aiming for some pity and attention.

Oh I feel soooo terrible, so here's a comment just so you feel better because I stopped caring about you and your life. Oh gosh, no really. I APOLOGISE. I WON'T APOLOGISE. It may have failed to occur to you that this here eljay land? Doesn't revolve around your itty bitty journal. Shocking, I know. Would you like a padded cushion for when you fall back to reality?

I've been around the bloglands for a few years now and I've seen it all over the place, I suppose that kind of self centred bullshit would turn up here too. You cannot force people to comment, we owe you nothing. There isn't a single person on my flist whose entries I've always replied to. Not a single one. And you know what? If people started commenting on every single bloody post I made, I'd seriously be doubting their sincerity.

Just because I don't comment on an entry, doesn't mean I didn't read it. I read them all. If I started to skip entries, I'd just unfriend you. I'm not biased on what I comment on either, so don't assume I won't comment on something that isn't 'About The Fandom'.

I don't know about anyone else, but here's why I don't comment on every entry I see:

1. I have nothing to contribute.
2. Whatever was needed to be said has been done and I'm not going to be Repeato Girl.
4. I have no idea what the hell you're on about, so is there any need for me to pointlessly say "I have no idea what you're on about."?
5. I really couldn't being to formulate a response to what you've said.
6. I feel that *hugs* isn't an adequate reply to anything. I never do *hugs*. Everyone does *hugs*.
7. You're upset and I can't help with words.

Oh, and also? Don't filter me out of the majority of your posts. Do I look completely stupid to you? Sod off.

if we never make it back to how far
we've come along this way
we search around for solid ground
that will help to carry us away
if the memories I left throw the light
that helps to guide you through
trickle down to our goodbyes
