ranting in verse

For all my esteemed and regular blogger friends, I apologise profusely for posting this rant. But I am truly sickened by someone who refuses to be shrugged off. I barely even acknowledge her. (I simply delete her comments, as I don't want her to disgrace my sacred space). Also it is due to her, I have had to resort to moderating my comments. As you know, some people just don't get the hint. I sincerely hope this will get her off my blog. FOR BETTER.

I only regret NOT writing this before now!

In this verse, I don't care about grammar, tenses and what have yous!

my best efforts are not enough
to keep you away from my blog
like a pest you persist, thick-skinned
maybe in the mind too. filled with your own
importance, you overlook your arrogance
unwanted, unloved that you are
with oodles of time in your hands
frustration is what i believe makes
you lash out other's work, lack of your
own creativity gives you a complex.
instead of creating your own space
you impinge upon others. me ignoring you
somehow gets to you. it amuses me that
you try to hit out at me on other's blog space.

"keep doing that yet, I want to see how low
you can fall, deeply buried in your own muck"

I want to say bravo for this successful rant! I love the end

Susan Helene Gottfried said...

Oh, man. I had no idea you had a troll -- and am I sorry that you do. I'm also pleased to see you're not letting her change you. Other than comment mod, which I have no issues with. I used it when my blog was based on Blogger.

Hang in there!

polona said...

i'm sorry about your pest. but this was an effective rant.

Whitesnake said...

Well lets see if I make the grade.....

SandyCarlson said...

Sorry about this. I had one of these a long while ago. I deleted her without even looking. Finally, she got bored and ran off. Seemed to be her Sunday morning recreation--blogging around and abusing people.

I hope she vanishes.

J. Andrew Lockhart said...

I get the feeling you don't like her. :)

Jeeves said...

Very powerful ranting!

anthonynorth said...

A worthwhile rant. We all get them from time to time.

Crafty Green Poet said...

oh well said, trolls are so irritating, especially the ones who sneak in seemingly friendly to start with and then just keep leaving totally inappropriate comments. I like to hope that Sandy's comment is true...

dsnake1 said...

i had a couple of those some time back, that's why i am using comment moderation.

The one thing about the internet That gets all of us are the worms that can crawl around without enough hooks to put them on.

bahut sundar likha hai aapane .

Bone said...

I had no idea , either. But I'm so sorry you're having to go through something like this.

My advice would be to just keep deleting. They'll eventually give up. Or more likely, move on to someone else.

*hug*

Goodness me!
I hope this works for you and she takes the message this time.
I had a religious nut pestering me for a while but he soon gave up.
Hey Troll get lost!

latree said...

I can feel your anger. I once had that kind of visitor that made me into comment moderation for quite long. but I open it free again now as I notice he's off.

gautami tripathy said...

Bahadur, what's so beautuiful about ranting?

cyclopseven said...

Don't keep her in your mind, buddy. We come across many things in life, yet we take with what we like, though at times we are carried away in silent dissension with things that we don't like. Whoever it is, IGNORE is the word. Hope this rant act as like a firewall:).

Lorraine said...

Rant away, as long as it helps ;)

Fledgling Poet said...

You expressed your frustration and anger very well...I'm so sorry you have a toxic poster who's been harassing you.

venus66 said...

Thank you for your kind words and visit. Take care.

DJPare said...

There are so many wonderfully supportive people out there, especially those who keep up with the Sunday Scribblings. I am sorry that some pathetic wretch has picked you, someone who seems so kind, to unleash her bitterness upon.

Nice post. Hope it is effective!

sage said...

Sorry you're being hounded--I hope it gets better...

Where are these people spawned? You do not deserve it. Your work is wonderful.

nairobi said...

Gee gautami!!

Guess sometimes u got to do it for good...

Frances said...

That's telling her!
Trolls must be stopped - a very talented blogger I know closed down her site because a pest like this.
Hoping your post does the trick.
Namaste

Ghost Particle said...

hahahah! hope this gets rid of her. so sickening, and i know a few other ppl who loves her sickening comments too. let them rejoice in their sadistic journeys.

John Tran said...

Wow... all of this blogging stuff is supposed to be fun. Why in the world would people spoil it for others? Glad you told her off!

Elspeth said...

Well said! Congrats. Everything in it's right and most effective time!

Patois said...

I am quite sorry that you're being hassled by such a troll. Your rant is quite good, though. I wouldn't want to be on the receiving end of it.

danni said...
