Look, I normally ignore people who are clearly points racking (eg copying five words out of the story, thus providing a comment that makes little sense). They’re cheats, and so they’re not people I want to engage with in any way. And in any case, they’re only robbing themselves of the rich experience this site can offer.
But yesterday – you know how sometimes the site throws up “you might be interested in this” stories which are quite old? I was reading one of these. It was a woman talking about the death of her daughter, and asking how others had found joy in occasions like mother’s day after such a loss. And one comment read “I like reading the stories on this site – they’re fun!”
I assume that such a callous and inappropriate comment can only have come from a points racker who hadn’t even bothered to read the story and was just pasting the same comment in repeatedly. Possibly someone who’s still around as that comment was only a few months old.
YOU SHOULD BE ASHAMED OF YOURSELF.
I can only imagine how hurtful that comment must have been to the woman writing about such a devastating loss. If you’re not going to bother reading the stories and engaging properly, at least choose some neutral comment that won’t hurt people.
