Just a Reminder: Play Nice

Things to love about the Daily Offensive:

#1. We blog about everything. We’re not specific to men, women, single parents, being frugal, etc. We’ll blog about whatever is on our mind. Most of our subjects, admittedly, appeal more to women due to the authors being women, and the majority of our readers, female…but we try to keep the subjects broad.

#2. We allow ghost bloggers a few times every month. We’re not short on inspiration or material, we just know what it’s like to write, and get both your thoughts out there in a blogging environment, and to write under a “ghost name” that will never be revealed. As long as they don’t go against the morals of the blog authors, we’ll allow anything. We’ve got about six in queue and LOVE them all. Keep them coming! <3

#3. The Daily Offensive is written by two different girls, and although they have a lot in common, they are quite different. Think of it as the Country Mouse and City Mouse. This gives you some really unique spins, and commentary.

#4. We allow anonymous comments. This is up for debate at the moment…but for now, you can comment without us knowing your identity. It can be used as a mini ghost blog, if you will. That’s rare. In fact, due to scrutiny and vindictiveness, you can hardly find a blog that will allow comments at all, or require you to be a registered user.

#5. We do our best to make you laugh, squirm, and think. We pride ourselves on touching the untouchables, and welcoming discussions on them.

We love our readers. We love that you participate in our blogs, and we love that we have such excellent ghost writers. Unfortunately, with the benefits listed above, we occasionally get attacked. If that happens, we generally ask you nicely to stop…or delete your comments. Discussion is one thing, agreeing to disagree is welcome…but pointing fingers, attacking, being vindictive or manipulative, flaming, meanness, prejudice, or using outside knowledge you have about us against us on the blogs will not be tolerated. While your name, address, and privacy are protected under an anonymous comment, your IP address and general location is tracked every time you click on anything on the internet. We have every ability to track your location...and block it, if you can't play nice.

A few quotes:

Some people’s lives seem to magically fall into place. We can see the blessings they have received, the ease with which they have attained their desires, their unwavering confidence, and their wealth. But, because we can never see the story of their lives as a whole, it is important that we refrain from passing judgment or becoming envious.

Should you find yourself the victim of other people's bitterness, ignorance, smallness or insecurities; remember, things could be worse. You could be one of them.

"How people treat you is their karma; how you react is yours."

It’s never what people do that make us angry, it’s what we tell ourselves about what they did.

Hear hear! I suggest that nasty anonymous and every other nasty anonymous grow a pair and put a name to their nasty. And... coincidentally... how much do you want to bet that nasty anonymous on the "men" blog just happens to be a man? Hmm. Missed point for the win. Or lose, actually.

Actually, it's Ex's Bitter Sibling. Go figure.

Oooo... And there's a couple of flags on play... "Stereotypical characterization of gender, 15 yards; quibbling over anonymous postings, 5 yards; the turnover is reversed; 1st down; play resumes."
