and I'm talking about the following blog:

WOW JUST WOW

it was forwarded it to me. I'm not an attention seeking whore. If I were I would have more than 500 posts in 9 years. I'm not a drama queen, again, if I were, I would have more than 500 posts in 9 years.

I was hurting. And I still am.

You obviously had a problem with me. Be the woman you claim to be and take it up with me. Otherwise, the pathetic shit you have to spew has no merit whatsoever. Especially since you are a coward and can't own up to it and post under your own name.

So, I get what you were saying about me. Since I'm no one, I had no business posting about my disappointment which I apologized for doing. And then follow up with a second thread in which I didn't reference the first thread.

So what.



My name is Erica and Im not scared to post under my name.

Yeah a lot of people get posted about on there. Not only have I been posted about I had people spreading the rumor that I owned the thing.

Just post what you want on here. If people don't like it, don't read your post!

I can't imagine why peas read there or why someone would send something from there. Doesn't make sense. I wouldn't know about the place if peas didn't reference it here and post links to it. Just.Say.No.

I am confused.

Was that a post on "the" blog?

Or was that a post from here someone copied to the blog?

What threads are they referring to?

You must be new!! Don't read it. It truly is a bunch of women from here, that must have nothing to do but make up lies about other people. Honestly..the times I have read stuff..or been told about stuff, it's SOO out to left field, and so wacky, you just wonder who these poor women are IRL. Funny thing IS..they post on here as sweet innocent things apparently!! CRAZY!!!!

I am guessing (from your rambling) that you're upset about the blog. Perhaps you ought be more upset with the "helpful" Pea that forwarded it to you.

Is this a blog about this message board? Interesting. I mean, this message board is the essence of wasted time...I can't imagine a secondary time waster regurgitating the same topics....but perhaps I'm missing the point.

I've got serious stuff to attend to today, like reading People magazine.

Erica....

If you're going to post here...

Never go to the blog. All it will do is make you upset. From time to time I will get upset because of something from here, but I interact with the people from here daily under their pea names.

I refuse to go to that blog and read the stuff they say. It's a bunch of miserable stuff posted by miserable people IMO.

These blogs have been around forever in one form or another. They seem to thrive off misery and discontent. Sometimes they target companies, sometimes they target people. It appears that the more "well-known" or visible you are, the bigger the bullseye on you.

I have had real-life crafty friends in tears over the mean, nasty, vile things said about them by people who have never so much as shaken their hand. These people know next to nothing about my friends, but yet feel free to spew vicious opinions, lies and untruths. Words CAN hurt.

The best advice is to ignore them. Don't read it, don't feed it, don't even think about it. HUGS!

Ahhh, okay...I googled, I read a few entries to see they just hash out what is said here and call people names.

To the OP, I'd recommend you just don't read it, I can't imagine the shit a bunch of anon people say, and really isn't worth your time, my time, or any sane person's time.

These blogs have existed for a very long time.
You've now given them what they want and that is a handslap and a post a out the blog.
Your "concerned friend" is not your friend if she forwards you that shit. She forwarded it to you because she wanted you to read it and react.

Erica, don't let it get to you, hon. You know who you are. Don't let the gossipy stuff in, especially while you are still vulnerable from your pain.

Your breakup took strength. I applaud you for taking that step. I would guess that the majority of us feel that way. So if a few choose to be closeted bullies about it, just look toward the majority who are supportive.

I admit I have read the blog in the past. I did so on lunch breaks, using it as sort of an index to the "hot spot" posts when my pea time was limited to a few minutes while I ate.

I only posted once in defense of a pea who was being maligned. I know it didn't change what any of them said about her or believed about her, but it made me feel better that I spoke up instead of ignoring something ugly being said about someone I like and respect. I haven't been back to the blog since that post, in part because I am no longer working, but mainly because the posts were so cruel and not something I wanted to let into my life.

I would advise you to stay away from it too. And while your friend let you know you were being talked about, you may want to ask to be left in the dark to what they say since it doesn't matter and isn't what the majority feel anyway.

26.2 has it right...Living well is the best revenge.

Blog Peas are kind of like the mean girls in HS, but these ones got stuck there and haven't managed to grow up yet. I guess they miss that time of their lives and are trying to recreate on the blog.

I wonder if they model this behavior for their children...guess it just proves the old adage that anyone can become a parent.

don't feel bad about whatever was said, and don't feel bad about posting it here. I'd probably have done the same thing, not thinking it would drive traffic to the blog. It's just human nature.

For all I know, the blog has me killing kittens. I find if you don't know, your life tends to run along on its tracks just fine.

Just lose the link and I wouldn't open any more emails from this person who forwarded the "helpful" information.

Eventually, the blog will move to another site, another social media, and you won't even know where to find it should you be tempted. THAT'S a nice spot to be in with your life, and I'm speaking from experience.

I know it hurts seeing nasty things being written about you, believe me I get it. But what did you accomplish with this post? Give them more attention? Give them satisfaction in knowing for a fact that you saw what they said and it hurt you? IMO you just gave them more power and more fodder. Best thing to do in these situations is to ignore and live your life. Calling out anonymous just validates what they do and gives them more members.

Sorry, but I actually agree with Petesmom. No "regular" Pea would forward you those blog posts under their real pea name because it is a shitty thing to do and I doubt they would want anyone to know they frequent the blog.

Word of advice, stay away from the blog. Unless you have the skin of an elephant, just stay away. Why would you even care what those people think of you anyway? Like other Peas have already stated, you have just given the blog more traffic.

LMAO. Wow, you sure showed them. Maybe if you posted with your real first and last name and your social security number, then your comment would have some meaning to it.

We are all pretty much anonymous here.

What exactly did they say to get you so riled up? Are you the chick who posted the thread "I broke up with him" and then 1 or 2 lines of basically no information? I think that the Blog posters were wondering who the heck you were and why we should know what the heck you were talking about. And you know what - they have a point. I read that thread and had no idea what you were talking about. You expected everyone to know. Well guess what, I think most people are too lazy to ask or to go look it up in your post history. Not everything is all about you, you, you.

I agree not everything is about me. However, I never implied, as you do, that it ever was or is.

I was hurt. I came here. I posted about it. There was enough information to get the just of what I was saying. You disagree.

Those blog posters . . . I was wrong about them. You, Yubon, are an ugly human being. I don't think you have one ounce of capability of being decent. Reading your shrill over the years has more than proven that to everyone.

Really what does it matter where it came from.

Because every time one of these threads comes up, they claim that they didn't know anything about the blog until some mysterious person forwarded it to them. I'm certainly not claiming that that was the case here, but most people who have been here for any amount of time know about the blog.

Sorry you read it (or were directed to read it). You're under no compunction to reveal who directed you there. You don't deserve to deal with gruff comments on this thread, when you came here to get some support and sympathy.

Consider the source. Does a bunch of anonymous opinions matter? Are you ever going to meet any of those people? Are you ever going to meet anyone from here?

Take strength from those who supported you and encouraged you to separate yourself from a relationship that wasn't fulfilling your needs. Brush off those who had a few harsh words.

Does it make it hurt any less? No. But remember, they're words on a computer screen from people that take joy in being nasty because for whatever reason, they probably can't in their own lives. Only you can give those words power. Once you ignore them, they're just little bits of data floating out there. Useless, worthless, meaningless.
