The State of JetPunk
First published: Sunday April 10th, 2022
I want to make a comment on something I've noticed here on JetPunk. My account has been mostly dormant for some time, though I do occasionally read a blog or two. And I must say they're quite good, very little content can be ruled "bad" in any sense of the word. But that's not what I'm here to talk about. No, it's the comments. A lot of people think it's their responsibility to harass their fellow users for making content they don't completely agree with. I hate to make examples, but some series have completely stopped because their posting schedule was a little silly and people bullied them for it. Now, I encourage criticism, yes, but can we just tone it down a little? Nobody actually cares if "your formatting could be better", or if "this blog was not necessary." Let their bloggers enjoy their blogs.
Another thing, the Blog Games. Lovely series, it's really excellent. But I feel that some users have gotten a little too invested. Sometimes I just stop reading a blog because of the big bold letters at the top stating it's "for the Blog Games." Make blogs out of your heart, not for cheap internet points. And don't quit JetPunk because you weren't in the Blog Games. That's absurd.
Perhaps the greatest irony of the universe is when a pack of users come together to spam comments saying "this blog is spam." If you don't like a blog don't read it. Simple. Another thing that really sets me buzzing is when users comment the same thing over, and over, and over ad infinitum, in hopes of accomplishing something. You're not getting someone unbanned by being obnoxious about it.
That's all for today. Not trying to call anyone out, just my two cents.
(Also, technically no blogs are necessary. Neither are any comments, or quizzes, or anything really.)
