"If you don't like what you're seeing, please click the red 'X' on the top right of your screen"
Heard that phrase before?
Must be familiar to those frequent Internet users eh?
For those who don't know what I'm talking about,
The phrase mentioned above is used quite often.
In a forum,
Someone would post something he/she drew,
And when some other people give a negative comment,
In a harsh or a polite way,
That phrase will pop up.
In another example,
You would normally see it listed in some part of their sidebar.
It's kinda equivalent to saying,
"This is my blog and I can do whatever I want to do with it"
What I think.
When someone uses that phrase,
It kinda gave others a slight feel of character,
Or in other sense,
Style of that person.
It has became so cliché,
Everyone's using it,
Some even put it in a way that sounds shallow and lame.
"HOI, DON'T LIKE MA CLOSE LOR, NO ONE ASK YOU READ AR, BE A GOOD DOG AND PRESS THE RED "X" UP THERE LA, -followed by a string of vulgar-"
This phrase is already wrong in the 1st place.
Listen to constructive criticism,
Or polite negative comments,
Maybe even some harsh ones.
If you were to do something to provoke someone else to give harsh comments,
There must be something wrong.
Ever thought of that?
Doesn't mean that you must change according to what others like,
Doesn't mean that you're a weakling.
Doesn't mean you're not a man,
Foul language doesn't make a man.
Think over it.
Saying that it's your blog and you can do anything with it,
It's other's own free will whether he wants to leave a comment or not.
Feel free to moderate or delete the comment if you wish too,
Some people are just to hard-headed to listen to comments.
STOP USING WHAT OTHERS HAS ALREADY USED,
Try thinking up something new,
Or just use the basic, classic ones.
There isn't a need to sound profound if you can't.
Keep it short & simple.
