Uninvited Blog Guests

One of the recurrent themes in blogging is dealing with uninvited guests. It is just one of those things that you have to deal with. There are a multitude of ways to deal with them. You can ignore them. You can block and ban them and or engage them.

The thing about blocking and banning a visitor is that there is almost always a way to get around it, especially if they have a modicum of technical expertise or access to those who do.

So the question is do you engage or ignore them.

Maybe there is more Taurus in me than I like to admit, but my instinct is to go after them. That is usually my first impulse. I want to surf on over and knock them on their cyberspace noggin once or twice and then for good measure give them a swift kick in the cyberpants.

However, I have found that this is much less effective and that the best way is to just ignore them. Pretend that they do not exist and more often than not they will leave you alone.

It is just one of those frustrations that comes along with the territory.

    My advice is don’t feed the trolls! Experience is a great teacher.

    Yeah. Speak about the devil.

    Anyway, as they say, it is better to be pissed off than pissed on…

    Jack’ you arrogant self-loving bastard-I am going to teach you a lesson for once and all.

    Actually, on second thought, I totally agree with you.

    Sometimes guests can be totally unwanted, and leave all sorts of annoying comments — you just have to wonder under what rock these people came out from.

    What’s cool though, is that I can post from NYC and people still are dumb enough to think I really live in Jerusalem.

    Nice Post.

    what about being nice to them? Maybe they can teach you something. The way you have posed the question suggests arrogance snobbery and that you think are better than them. Jackshack dont you hear warning bells? I suggest you reread this post and rethink your negative aggressive territorial attitude.
