Pundit Profiles

I get all sorts of comments on this blog. But one thing I noticed over my 5 year stint in checking out blogs and knowing bloggers... People do leave comments that does actually reflect their true nature. I narrowed down a few that I do encounter on regular basis here.


The casual supporter:
Someone who only comments when feels like it. Pretty pleasant in most cases.

The objector:
A person who'd only comment when finds something objectionable in your post. Usually sane and has good reasons to object against.

The sarcastic:
Usually in agreement but always in a mockery context

The skeptic:
Rarely in agreement, mostly questioning the authenticity of your posts

The loyal:
Avid and loyal follower who genuinely enjoys anything you post about

The single-worder:
Leaves marvels like "cool", "whatever" or "BS" one word comments

The douchebag:
Someone who makes sure he/she doesn’t leave a comment without making sure it offends everyone with the use of vile language

tHe aNNoYinG: Som1 wHO roLLz da KeYboRD LiKE dAt, daaawg

The onetime-uber-excited:
Someone who’s would love your post so much, to the point he/she would dedicate an entire post on it in on their blog ... and never hear back from them again, ever.

The leecher:
Is only there for the traffic. Usually leaves links and URLs.

The obscure:
Someone who leaves an irrelevant comment that makes no sense what so ever

The hopeless:
Someone who sees no use in any of your posts nor any hope in making any change

The copy/paste junkie:
Obssesive right-click user, copy/pastes a 5 pages long story in your comments section just to make a point

The confrontationalist:
Someone who somehow turns every idea you have into an “us” vs. “them” debate

The pessimist:
Only see’s the downside to any thought or idea you are sharing.

The insecure agro:
Sees every post you make as a personal attack against him/her, and acts accordingly

The freak:
Leaves comments like “I will kill you, your family and your pet chiwawa too” <- I will leave the psychoanalysis part for this one to you..

Anymore profiles? Do share...

  • On A 2ed thought, Y u hatin’ so much on the Ballerz? They be cool.

  • Now seriously :)… nice post Mory. I guess I get fewer profiles than those. But I’ve seen all of them around at one point or the other.

    The last one, the Freak, is a troll. Someone who can hurl insults and threats behind a keyboard and a pseudo name but too coward to show up in real life. He’s just on internet to stir s**t and grab some attention…

  • Heh-heh, cute insight. How about the one who always forgets whose blog belongs to who, then twice a yer checks in? ;)

  • There's also The Spammer (not a person I guess, but whatever machine spews spam on your posts), and the Anonymista (always anonymous)....

    Will let you know if I think of any more :)

  • hahahah this post made my day...

    those "The copy/paste junkie" are the most annoying... I have experienced them first hand in public forums... they paste pages and pages of stuff... and no one reads them.

    spot on profiles ;)

  • That's a good list. It had me back-checking the last (first?) time I responded on this blog to see which type I was. Mostly I get casual supporters at the Para, which is reasonable, because most folk go to a bar for friendly relaxation. The very occasional troublemaker can't complain if the bouncers move in :)

  • هاهاهاها

    هذا جميل و ممتع جدا

    btw, which one of those am I? please don't be polite :P

    you reminded me, what happened with Mr Santos? He was weird, and he's definitely mentioned in one of the profiles you had :)

    I miss Mr Santos :P

  • Bu Jassem,

    I'm happy to report to you that David Santos is alive and well!

  • You also forgot The Stalker Who Truly Makes You Uncomfortable - they usually send in an email through the contact form expressing their infatuation with you, your ideas, your blog, your photo, and commend you on your indirect sexual innuendo in posts, and ask you lots of personal questions.

  • oh goodness...too funny. i must be the casual supporter i'm guessing. i don't get enough comments on my blog to be able to add anything new to your list.
