*teet teet teet teet* SMS from Chao Ah Beng
“HOI!, you no online? Reply komen la wei, lansi!”
*toot toot toot toot* MSN from Telor
*Cipet, you hiding? Reply comments lah wei. When people commented, it is good manners to reply.*
Actually, I forget to save conversation, so those are not the exact words. But it has the same meaning.
Now, I always make it a point to reply comments because I expect people to respond to my own comments I left in their blog unless it is just a casual quote. I mean, it takes a little time and a lot of thoughts for us to pen down those few words, right? So it has to be responded to.
But sometimes, I don’t reply because of several reasons :
1) I want to forget about that post, teeet….change subject, NEXT!!!!!;
2) I found one or two comments that I wanted to tiu (diss), so instead of doing it, I try to let it go. In the end, I don’t reply at all. This way, people will not say, eh, why she skipped my name, wan?;
3) I am really, really busy. Like right now. Because I got errands to do and some powerpoint slides to complete.
4) I am not in the mood to interact.
Point 1-3 do not need any elaboration. But let’s talk about point 4. There are days when my real person is actually not as bubbly as my posts. So, though I do blog, I really am not in the mood to ‘talk’. I think all of us go through those phases when you wish to shut out the world and just crap a one way traffic thing. Reply comments actually take more time than writing a simple post. You gotta guess what the heck the commentor is trying to say. Some leaves nothing for us to reply so typing 🙂 also takes time.
Yesterday, someone told me that my old blogspot still have some nice posts. Which is true because I can just rattle off whatever I think there and then and knows that no one is going to misinterpret it, give me unwanted remarks like ‘I pity you’, ‘Dun angry, can grow old’, ‘yadda yadda yadda’. Or paling chialat, I hate people puji-puji me. Aiyerr…I wear wooden clogs only, don’t need polish wan. But at least I don’t have that lame, “First!” Ewwss..I hate that. Please, stop. Lame!
And then hor…I itchy butt got many blogs so if I reply all comments, until when also never finish. Somemore hor, at times people never read the blog post and eventhough I explained in the post, they sure come and ask some questions again. Very tulan wan, you know? It clearly shows they don’t bother to read, just comment for the sake of leaving a link. I hate that too.
Therefore, cilakak Chao Ah Beng, not because I lansi I don’t reply comments lah, tiu. Niamah. I no reply today because I boh eng go eat char koay teow at Swatow Lane. Burp…..9 prawns, all crawling under my skin.

So, folks, what’s your opinions on bloggers who never bother to acknowledge you when you commented? You hate it right? But then, there are blog pals which I would leave a comment because it is like a morning ritual. And if a blogger never bother to reply my comment once or twice, if I happened to hop back to check, sorry lah…..I hate rejection. Hehehe.
