Feeding The Attention Whore

The Urban Dictionary provides a number of definitions for the term Attention Whore. This one works well enough for me.

“A person who, regardless of whether or not they are attached, will seek out the attention of other males/females to make themself feel important. Usually found on internet forums and voice programs using whatever charms, bodily parts, etc. they may have to make themself appear more attractive to the opposite sex, even though it couldn’t be farther from the truth. Some attention whores become agitated and intimidated when another member of the same sex garners more attention than themself and they become hostile and lash out. Will do almost anything to get the attention they seek including posing naked or half naked for pictures and posting them everywhere for all to see…and become increasingly sick to.”

It is a description that fits many bloggers but at the moment I have one in mind. I mulled over and debated whether to give him more attention and decided that in this case it needed to be done.

This person consistently inserts inappropriate commentary into discussions where it is illsuited and unwarranted. I am not a saint. I am not prude and certainly not shy but I think that I have enough common sense not to make asinine remarks on a post about suicide.

Furthermore I don’t cotton to people who try to threaten me.

So here is my response to you. Stacey is my: wife/mother/sister/cousin/brother/friend/mentor/boss/alter ego.

In short it doesn’t matter what my relationship is or isn’t. You haven’t any business or reason to be concerned about this. If I could I would take you by the scruff of the neck and shake some common sense into you.

I’d box those ears and smack you upside the head a half dozen times or so. And then for good measure my size 12 boot would meet your tuchus and send you sprawling in the dirt.

But because I am a curmudgeon with a touch of kindness I’d give pick you back up and give you an ice pack and some Tylenol.

DJ,

If you want to post some cockeyed theory be my guest. In the end I suppose you win. I just gave you more press than you deserve.
