You all know that old saying about "you can't please all of the people all of the time…"?
Well, for the first time ever, I had a nasty experience with a "troll" - someone whose manners and class are sorely lacking.
Someone left a nasty spam comment on one of our posts today, and didn't have the balls to leave their proper name and email address.
You can always spot a coward and a spineless wimp from 500 ft away - they don't have the courage to stand up in public on their opinions. Instead, they hide behind a faceless post on a blog, with no genuine method of identifying themselves.
So…a nasty comment is a temporary blip on the radar, but be aware that when you put yourself out there in public, such as on a blog, you WILL attract the odd crazy sicko who really doesn't care who you are or whether they hurt you… they just get off on the exposure and controversy they created. Be forewarned and prepared - it will probably happen to you as well.
Just take the hit, delete their comment, have a drink & chill for 5, and move on. It's not worth losing sleep over their total lack of manners. In fact, if you feel sorry for them it will piss them off WAY more than forgiving them! LOL
So, how about you? Have you ever been the subject of a blog troll? What happened and how did you handle it. Please use the comments section below to tell us about your experience. Oh, and now ALL comments have to be approved by myself or Clayton (as the moderators), so there'll be no more troll gunk on our blog! :-)

Why do you still think your customers owe you something???
It never ceases to amaze me how business owners, staff and management teams still think their customers actually need them….
It is this arrogance that continues to see quality customers walk out the door and straight into
the nearest competitors door…..
Because of this arrogance, you don't even know that your customers are spending thousands of dollars with your competitors monthly…. Read the rest

Boy, have they turned out to be one of the unexpected big items on the internet in the last few years. Blogs - the name came from weblogs (personal and opinion journals/diaries) are now very much mainstream.
Blogs (and Blogging - the 'art' of writing on a blog) are so common and popular now that it sometimes seems like "everybody" has their own blog…
Of course, that's really not true. I know that out of all my friends and family, there are only 2 of us who own a blog and who add to that blog on a semi-regular basis, so in reality, its still a small percentage of folks who are bloggers.
"…Part of that vision, shared by other blogging pioneers, has been to help democratize the creation and flow of news in a world where giant companies control so much of what most people see, hear and read. Weblogs are also becoming a valuable communication tool for groups of people, and have begun to infiltrate the corporate, university and government spheres."
However, the beauty of blogging is that anyone with an internet connection can begin blogging TODAY, and (perhaps more importantly) can also EARN AN INCOME from blogging! Read the rest
