I understand that we all have issues, and we have different issues.
I have an issue that is none of my business. I know it, yet that doesn't change how I feel. I over-react. I get up in arms.
There are many positions I take, and when someone feels a different way, I have no issue with it. So, someone feels a different way? What's it to me? What do I care?
But when it comes to anonymous, like posting anonymously, I'm a sorehead about it.
I try to think what exactly anonymous represents to me that I should take exception to it. I guess it means to me that it's hiding. I must have a negative view about hiding. If someone thinks a certain way, why would they hide that they feel a certain way? Is there something they are afraid of? Why would they be embarrassed?
Honestly, the anonymous things I've read seem like nothing at all. What's the big deal?!!! Of course, it's big deal to me that anyone chooses to be anonymous!!!
I wonder: What kind of attention do they think their opinion is going to call to them anyway? None, it seems to me. Why is anonymous a big issue with me?
I love it when people use their real names and their first and last names.
I don't get why someone wants to be anonymous. So, okay, I don't get it. There are plenty of things I don't get, yet I don't have issues with them!
I tried not to write this blog entry, and I kinda tried not to post it. I know it's not wise to vent in public, yet here I am.
Way back when I was teaching school, I had a feedback box in my classes, and the kids could make all the suggestions they wanted except I required that they had to sign their names. And they did. It was good all way around that they signed their names. It was structured so they did honor to themselves and were respectful to me.
I have changed in so many ways, yet I can't seem to get beyond reacting to this issue that isn't worth it.
