I love it when they hate me

"Anonymous" left the following comment on "Erin O'Brien Naked" at about 10:30 p.m. EST last night.

"You're ugly as fuck. Please don't do that ever again...OK?"

I thought it was just one of the Internet kooks I get from time to time, so I deleted it. But "Anonymous" has returned this morning and, since he/she is obviously emphatic about getting his/her point across, I have left the comment up. If you scroll all the way down the page, you'll see he/she added, "You're still ugly as hell! Please go away Miss Earth Mother Hippie Chick..." at about 8:45 a.m. this morning.

I'm pretty sure the hit came out of the Cleveland Clinic, which is ironically one of the few corporations that does not mask their outgoing ISP address. And I wonder if this person is related to "marv" who used very similar language to describe me on this forum.

Welcome marv and Anonymous.

Good Lord Boyet, my beauty, though but mean,
Needs not the painted flourish of your praise:
Beauty is bought by judgement of the eye,
Not utter'd by base sale of chapmen's tongues.

Were it not for Earth Mother Hippie Chicks I might still be a virgin.

But what I really want to know is:

"Hey Al, What's Cooking?"

I almost never leave a post, but I've had you on my bloglines for quite awhile now.

But I hadn't gone back far enough to see the "naked" post.

All I can say is GO GIRL. Oh, and when you're done with your legs, can I borrow them?

Yeah, I'm making you cookies.

Weird. It's like these people think that they can dictate what should and should not go onto the internet. How fabulously self-important they must be. *JAZZ HANDS*

The Internet, a/k/a The Information Superhighway, is just like the REGULAR highway; in that there is a lot of "road rage."

The Internet gives you the ILLUSION of isolation and anonymity; just like driving a Hummer.

In both cases, you don't have EITHER--in the Hummer, for instance, if you REALLY piss the wrong guy off, your "isolation" is violated by a Glock 9-millimeter.

On the Internet, if you REALLY fuck up, the Department of Homeland Security or whoever can find you.

The Existential question is how the "normal" person deals with the road rage, in both cases: The preferred answer is just ignore it and let the proverbial "Wrong Guy" that they are going to piss off deal with it.

Don't listen to that Anonymous weenie, Erin. That photo inspired legions of us to follow in your naked footsteps, and we love you for it.

You are so hot that half the time I'm afraid my computer screen might melt.

Maybe that's what happened to your anonymous commenter. His computer screen melted and now the picture doesn't look quite right. Either that or he/she needs new glasses.

You are hot, baby!

Hi everyone.

I am not concerned about his/her "ugly" accusations. I just wanted to do the post because I love it when they hate me. It means I'm doing something right.

And when they are reduced to name-calling, I'm really doing something right.

But thanks for the strokes just the same peeps.

Actually, it's meat. Meat all the time. I'm in the meat fabrication class for the next two weeks and this past week. We butchered whole turkey breasts, chickens, hanger steak, brisket, ground meat, made sausage, salmon cakes .... meat. It's what's for dinner.
