Every once in a while, I find some hystrionic tirade in my inbox. It's always an anonymous commenter of course, and sometimes I have trouble finding which post the comment was left on. This was the case this morning. What I find over and over again is that the most vicious of comments are always replete with spelling errors and exude closed-mindedness.
Here are some gems:
* If your a left wing communist loser that loves to rape children up there ass because your gay, than Montreal is the place for you.
Wow, four errors in one sentence. And the sentiment just warms the cockles (I said cock, tee hee) of my heart.
* I could go on and on, but I must say Quebec women are sluts, putes, all have AIDS, ugly, disgusting, they look like men with lipstick, and we are a disgusting melting pot
Ten bucks says you're single and bitter.
* And oh by the way, the Anglos used to control Montreal when it was prosperous; lets just say downtown Montreal is equivalent to bombed out Iraq
All I see downtown is new construction and working people. I would use the word "vibrant" to describe it. Your comparison is like saying broccoli is equivalent to ice cream.
If you want to read the full text of the comment, it's on the post from Sep 6th.
While I'm horrified at the sentiment, I'm also grateful for this morning's blog fodder that it supplied.
