So, I s'pose I'm allowed to rant on here, am I not?
I hope so.
So, I've been registered here for a few days, now, and there's a couple of things I've noticed. One, the comments. Oh, yes. I went there.
So, before you all start swearing at the screen as if it might actually affect me in some way, shape, or form, stop. You know where this rant is going, I know where this rant is going. And if you do, that means you've noticed it as well. That, or you read a heck of a lot of rants.
Moving on. Now, I'm pretty pleased to even have one person commenting on my work. Frickin' chuffed, to be honest. So pleased, I probably won't mind if my first comment is a simple: 'KMU.' I had to Google that the first time I saw that. Yes. I'm a thirteen year old who doesn't understand most text talk.
After you've finished having a laugh at my expense, please read on.
But there are a few fairly popular authors on this site, and, no, I'm not talking about the ones that such a crazy amount of comments each day that a 'KMU' will probably be a relief. I'm talking about the ones that get a fair amount of comments, but not so much as to not care when people only write one stinkin' word. It makes me wonder if they seriously read and appreciated the piece. That dude has put a crazy heck load of work into that, so have the decency to write out a comment that sounds like you actually do want to be updated. Please.
And you know what's worse? Advertising your story on other's work without even writing a comment about their work before you do so.
'KMU. HEY CHECK OUT MY AWESOME STORY! THX'
No! No! Now, if you type out a fairly good comment before subtly advertising your story at the bottom, that's alright. Not brilliant, but it's alright. You won't go to Hell, or anything. I don't do it, but I don't have a particular problem with those who do. Sort of like smoking. Anyhow.
Since I don't want ya'll to think I'm a bitch, I'm going to shut up, now.
Adios, my dears!
