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.
A person who'd only comment when finds something objectionable in your post. Usually sane and has good reasons to object against.
Usually in agreement but always in a mockery context
Rarely in agreement, mostly questioning the authenticity of your posts
Avid and loyal follower who genuinely enjoys anything you post about
Leaves marvels like "cool", "whatever" or "BS" one word comments
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
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.
Is only there for the traffic. Usually leaves links and URLs.
Someone who leaves an irrelevant comment that makes no sense what so ever
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
Someone who somehow turns every idea you have into an “us” vs. “them” debate
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
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...
