As far as people leaving nasty comments at other diarists entries, I think that is downright rude and nasty. If anyone leaves a nasty comment, look out! I will ban you in an instant, believe me! Rude and nasty comments are NOT welcome here whatsoever!! Dear Diary created a place for those who want to share their lives, feelings, and thoughts. I am willing to share my thoughts and feelings. We do have a right to vent and say what we wish to say but leaving nasty comments brings others down. Those who leave such horrible comments are people who probably feel tough and do not have a life themselves that is not a very happy one. People have been made with feelings for a reason. Again if anyone leaves a nasty comment and does exclude my DD friends who will not leave such horrible comments, I will delete the comment right away and ban the person from writing a comment again. I have done it to a couple of people already and from reading their own entries, all I saw was negativity in theiir journalsl. I will not, at any time, give anyone advice or leave a comment that I will soon later regret because I was so emotional at the moment. I too have feelings and if I see a comment at a DD friend’s diary, I will go on the defense…believe me! I am not joking even though I will not write a nasty comment back to that very person who left a comment. I only tell it like it is without the nastiness. If I tell someone something, it is out of concern, kindness, and nothing but the truth from this heart of mine.
