Don’t Feed The Trolls.

“O perpetual revolution of configured stars, o perpetual recurrence of determined seasons, o world of spring and autumn, birth and dying! The endless cycle of idea and action, endless invention, endless experiment, brings knowledge of motion, but not of stillness; knowledge of speech, but not of silence; knowledge of words, and ignorance of the Word. All our knowledge brings us nearer to our ignorance, all our ignorance brings us nearer to death, but nearness to death no nearer to God. Where is the Life we have lost in living? Where is the wisdom we have lost in knowledge? Where is the knowledge we have lost in information? The cycles of Heaven in twenty centuries bring us farther from God and nearer to the Dust.” ― T.S. Eliot, The Waste Land and Other Poems

 

…. is what I should have said to this guy.

  1. Your humor and sarcasim would make us bffs if I lived in Philly. Thank god for socializing via internet. Lol ohh the irony 😀 seriously though, I sure enjoy the blog 🙂

  2. That is one of the most fantastic ideas. So much approval. I probably would have gone the route of pointing out his spelling error… I mean, come on. If you’re going to insult me, you might as well spell it right.

    Besides, I bet he doesn’t even know the etymology of the word and how it comes from the Greek word for “bundle,” referring to how it was a bundle of branches used for fuel. So really, he’s just confirming what all your *actual* readers already know – that your writing is fuel that fires up ideas. 🙂

    And oh hey, apparently there’s an alternative usage, too, where when turned into a verb the word means “to do needlework on a garment, piece of cloth, etc.” Hey there, miss costume designer 😉

  3. I’ve never understood the whole unwarranted nasty comment thing, if you don’t like something: don’t read, watch, or listen to it! O_o Some people are nuts though 😀
