There has been a complaint. I am told I am being unfair for deleting those posts.
How fair is it to post nasty stuff on what is most often one’s personal journey?
How fair is it to go through extreme reactions, all about one blog post?
How fair is it to taunt other commentators?
How fair is it to go on another forum and rubbish me and those who respond to me as my “suitors” who pick up my handkerchief that I have been blowing my nose into? (This rubbishing is not restricted to one person, incidentally.)
How fair is it to not follow basic norms of decent behaviour towards one who has nothing to do with you and is not infringing on your territory?
How fair is it to let yourself become a part of the most juvenile canard being spread when you know nothing?
How fair is it to abuse trust and then hit out because public visibility is more important than a private assurance?
How fair is it to talk about respect and then use the foulest insults against that same person?
If anyone has the answers and thinks I am being unfair after all this, do let me know.
I have faced enough and more of my share of criticism for my views, and have dealt with them with utmost dignity, without compromising on my position. Yes, I am proud of that. But please do not start such futile and puerile ‘discussions’ here.
This isn’t such a forum. This is my home. If you knock on my door I do not expect chocolates and flowers, though they are lovely, but I will not accept anyone walking in with muddied shoes and then trying to throw that muck on me.
And all this for what?
I might add, it isn't against the male gender. I am much amused by a certain female who has been talking about taking abusive men to school. She is being applauded for it. She, who has been amongst the worst possible abusers of men and women. She, who posted personal details about another woman now mentions that woman as one of the people she would like to meet in real life! Ho-hum...
Such is the way things work in this cyber world. But there is hope. There are those who have been working and watching. When I put an acquaintance in touch with some of the stuff on desi websites (she is English), she was shocked. Even more shocked when I mentioned the 'professional' qualifications of some such people.
Let me make it clear: those of you who are sneaking in here with praise and doing your backbiting bit elsewhere have been noticed and marked.
