A Word to the Commenters

While I was uploading my latest Tutorial Tuesday video, I deleted a couple of unsavory comments on my Youtube videos and it got me to thinking about those charming fellows who like to email me about how boring my blog is or leave comments on non relevant posts about my “breeding habits”.

May I have a word with you? (Ewe no who U R.)

I’m terribly worried that you are being held hostage and are bound with some sort of industrial adhesive tape product or maybe even a nylon rope, because why else would you continue reading something you dislike so? If that is the case, please try with all your might to peck out a message (USE YOUR NOSE IF YOU MUST!) with your longitude and latitude coordinates so I can send for help.

In the meantime, and for future reference, I would like to request that you leave all future correspondence in the Queen’s English, as that is my first language, and also because YO, YO! I am not down with the chat speak. Smockity don’t play dat.

Word.

  1. You are so funny! Loved the video. Stay strong – I love reading your site!

  2. I’ve always wondered how people expect to be taken seriously when they have nothing better to do than insult strangers when they can’t even make the effort to be understandable and don’t understand the preschool level concept of, “if you don’t like it, don’t keep coming back for more!” Don’t you wish more people still understood what it means to be classy?
    I think you seem like a very sweet person. I really enjoy reading your blog. You’re real. You aren’t some arrogant … well I’ll stop there. ;) You get the picture. Just keep being you; that’s what we love!

  3. I love your humor Connie!! And I love reading your site, its such an encouragement to me :o)
    I think you can disable comments on You Tube, though that wouldn’t stop people emailing I guess.
    Love ya x

  4. You are soooo much more gracious than I’d be. Just to agree: I have never figured out these people who keep coming back for more…and more…and more …of stuff they hate. Very odd.
    Keep it up. We love you!
    Love, Anne x

    Oh my goodness I love this video so much! It is pure genius! I am sending this to everyone I know…they could learn something from it :-)

    And I totally agree about the hater comments…if you don’t like something, turn it off! This is a free country.

  6. charlotte says:

    great post :o) very witty ~ I love your style!

  7. Wow! That video says it all. I really enjoy your blog. Keep up the good work.
    Blessings,
    Dawn

  8. That was funny and so true! What gets me is when people are so hateful and critical of someone and they can’t even spell. I’ve seen plenty of comments like that (usually on other sites).

  9. You have a great attitude about it. Keep blogging and ignore the detractors. LOVE the video!

  10. I have to admit I use abbreviations when I am texting young people. My husband and I work with the Youth, so I understand the lingo. But whenever I am speaking with Adults or teaching my children, I use proper English. So sorry that you are getting comments that are “Whack”. Our country has went down in our education department, this is why so many of us are pulling our children out of the public school system. We were founded on Godly principles and you are still following them. With that you will get a spiritual fight!!! Be encouraged in the Lord today. We are praying for you and keep your head up. You are at the front lines of the battle ground with your blog and you will get hit. But you have us who are reading your blogand praying for you. God Bless and love in Christ!!

  11. I loved your video. I learned things from your site. I am also consider a breeder as a lot of my friends I keep company with because we have 3 or more children. I have 6 boys. My friend was called a breeder to her face she has 5 children. All of our children are well behaved. Regardless people will always have negative comments. It is my husband choice and my own to have as many children as we want . People will always have something negative to say. Keep on keeping on you are great and I love learning from you and your family. The video was so funny.

  12. I understand EXACTLY where you are coming from. I recently addressed some “not so nice” comments on my blog last week. I also announced that I would stop showing them the satisfaction of acknowledging them, and the from now on I would delete & then ban them from my website since it is so detrimental to their well being. I never understood the reason why people kept returning to read my blog if they didn’t like me in the first place. I guess it would be unfathomable to apply the rule of “if you dont’ have anything nice to say….”

    I’m glad that you handled this in such a polite way. I only know too much how one nasty comment can ruin your entire day.

    Take care,
    Shynea

  13. yo dis iz so widdit
    I’m just kidding…had to do it. I LOVE your site, the humor makes me laugh. I think many of us moms need it. It kills me when people type like that because honestly I think it’s harder to figure out how to spell like that! They do it on purpose, right, because I wouldn’t think they were smart enough to turn on the computer, let alone spell a website correctly to get to it. :o)
    And the breeder thing, ugh. My gay brother called me that, supposedly it’s what “they” call those of us that aren’t gay and have children (from my other brother). I’ve had one, adopted three. So whatever.
    Keep going, Connie….love the blog.
    (hopefully there are no typos in here!)

    You are hilarious! Thanks for getting Monday morning started with a laugh! I’m so sorry you are on the receiving end of negative comments. I happen to love your blog and think your ‘breeding habits’ are Biblical. So just let the negative stuff go in one ear and out the other, like my dad always used to say. :-)

  15. Heather Sutton says:

    Love the video! Good way to start out my Monday. Thanks for taking something negative and turning it into something the rest of us can laugh about!

  16. That video was hilarious! Disrespect is not hilarious. I’m so sorry that you are dealing with hateful people. I have never understood why people don’t leave when they don’t like something they see.

  17. In case I haven’t told you lately, I love your humor and your spunk. Like you and so many others have said, I just don’t get why people leave rude comments on the blogs (or YouTube videos) of complete strangers. If you don’t like what you’re reading, move along. There are plenty of other blogs to read and videos to watch.

  18. Lauralee says:

    Hahahahahaha!!!! That was AWesome! Too funny! I’m glad you have a good sense of humor about it, gotta have to eh? ;)
    PS
    I really like your blog! :)

    LOVE IT, LOVE IT, Connie! I really enjoy reading your blog, even though I only have 2 littles right now (my hubby comes from a family of 10 kids, so he’d like us to stick with a smaller family :) ). I love hearing your perpectives on things, but especially homeschooling and household responsibilities for the kiddos. I learn a lot from you! Can’t believe how rude some people are ~ I’ve come across my share. I also can’t stand it when there are misspellings in books, pamphlets, or on signs. One of my major pet peeves is when there is a sign that says “English muffins .99 cents.” Makes me want to slap a penny down and ask for change! My favorite was a local grocery store ad that was advertising their “80% fresh lean ground beef”! I showed it to customer service, but the didn’t see my humor. :)

  20. Seriously Connie, you make me laugh! What a great way to handle that! I love your blog and always have. I have learned so much from you and appreciate the aspect that you choose for your blog to have. Keep up the good work! I have never understood those that keep reading my blog and then leave bad comments! LOL

  21. I love your comment to the commenter! BUT I do have one problem…I cannot seem to ever see your videos. Obviously by the comments, everyone else can, but I cannot. Can you help me? They are just not in your post when I go to it. I can see you text, but the rest of the area is white (where the video should be)
    thanks!

      @valerie, Hmmm. I don’t know. Do you have Adobe Flash Player installed on your computer? It could be that you need to install the program needed to view videos. Can you view videos on other sites?

  22. I cannot imagine anybody being rude to you! You are so funny and gracious, and dare I say that many people I know would benefit from your advice on parenting. Also, I love that you have a large family, and I really don’t understand people who criticize for having many children.

    The video was great. I laughed out loud. In the future I would like to see you do your own rap video. Maybe it could be about knitting cables!

  23. Hilarious — that was quite the unexpected humor from Smockity! :) Enjoy your blog – appreciate your good attitude toward rude people in this world (of which there are no lack!)

    I’m with Merry Jo – spelling errors are my pet peeve too!!

  24. I don’t know what is funnier—your post or the video you linked to.
    How on earth did you find that?

  25. You are great!! Love your site, love your humor. You crack me up. You are much nicer than I probably would have been.

  26. I don’t know if someone already suggested this, but there is a Chrsitian based website like you tube. It is called http://www.tangle.com . We use it and haven’t had any problems!

  27. I enjoyed your post and the video so much, I had to go back and show it to Eric when he got home from work.

    I’m really looking forward to seeing you soon, Connie!

  28. That video made me day!

  29. You go girl! Love the video and you kind way of telling the haters to get lost. :)

  30. OH Connie.. You are awesome! :) lol :)

  31. That video was so funny! And I give you a good hearty Amen! Don’t like it? Don’t read! That is my motto too!

  32. ROFL that video was hilarious! I’m gonna have to show my husband that.

    … whooops, there goes the improper English ;-)

  33. Love the video !

  34. I’m seriously convinced that the individuals that leave those comments are actually 9 year old kids whose parents should be monitoring their computer time more closely.

    Great video. Thanks for sharing!

  35. Okay. I missed some things this week, I see.

    Oh my goodness…that video is funny, and…true.

  36. Haha, boy did they hit the nail on the head. I couldn’t agree more with pretty much everything in that video. Hilarious!

  37. OK…I read your blog though I have never commented. But, I cannot resist this one….I gotta tell ya…you are one classy lady…;)

    Word to Mutha…you off da chain Ms. Connie! ;)

  38. That video was HILARIOUS! Thank you for the rating warning tho. I’m so glad my kids weren’t nearby.
    And so glad to know I’m not the only one who sees those comments and thinks: Was that English? I have no idea what he’s saying!

  39. Jennifer says:

    I detest “chat speak”, but I just have to do this…..ROFL!! Love it!!!

  40. 1) I can not believe someone would leave messages like that.

    2) Love your message to them! OMG, ROTFL! ha

    3) The video is brilliant!

  41. Ha! Hilarious! Love it!

  42. Love it!
