Comment with a small potential of hurting someone's feelings

Much more explicit comment that is likely to hurt someones feelings.


(even though I have already expressed that I would not make this comment, because I KNEW it would cause hurt feelings, and would not help matters at all)

Perhaps a more appropriate way for me to have handled this would be to express my hurtful comment privately, rather than publicly, if I just could not keep it to myself as I had originally planned.

I'm really confused....i read your blog periodically and don't really get today's untitled post. Could you please be a little more specific as to the comment and who's feelings are being hurt? Do you want your feelings hurt? Could ya just fill us in please.

Sorry, anonymous......

The people involved in the potentially hurtful comment situation understand what is going on here...naming names and being more specific would be at odds with my suggestion of being more private with potentially hurtful comments.

Then why blog about it and not just speak to whoever is involved in person or phone then you wouldn't be airing potential dirty laundry.

Excellend suggestion, anonymous.

If you had read my comments more carefully, you would see that that is EXACTLY what I am suggesting.

If you read my SECOND comment more carefully, you would see that I am refraining from elaborating and airing ANY dirtly laundry, thus the specific lack of details

So, by examining your second statement, I understand it better, but am still confused as to who this blog is addressing. If you keep it to yourself, why blog about it?

Okay, anonymous.....

I allow anonymous comments on here solely because my mother cannot sort out the whole blogger.com idea ns likes to post using anonymous....but she signs her name in at the bottom so I know it is her. I would like to keep things that way, so I won't change it, but it is getting a little irritating responding back and forth to 'anonymous' comments.



AND.....I have quite specifically stated that the people who were meant to understand this post surely DO understand my point, and if you do NOT understand it, you were not involved in the situation and are not MEANT to understand it.


So.



Drop it. Be happy knowing that I must not have been addressing you in the situation of making potentially hurtful comments.
