I noticed a few months ago that some blogster “liked” my post, so i went to his blog and it was a fundamentalist Christian site. Now why would they “like” my site except to get their Gravatar onto mine so when you all out of curiosity go to their site you will realize your sins of being witches and magickians and covert to their religion? After all aren’t we all evil Devil worshiping Satanists and going to hell, so they have to “save” us?
Of course we can police comments made on our blogs to decide if we want to let them through or not, but as far as i can see we cannot block people from “liking” our posts. So my first approach was the direct one and i went to his blog and posted a comment (which has never been approved) asking him to stop and telling him i considered it a type of harassment, kinda like the Jehovah’s Witnesses coming to my door, on my private property, and leaving their Watchtower magazines. Curiously now another fundie has started “liking” my posts so i guess the word is out who to target. I am not going to list their blogs since their Gravatars do no have links to their blogs but i can only see those in my notifications emails, and i am not trying to blacklist them publicly. I do not think they can see everyone who visits their site to track them back, and i always check out what someone is into before i approve it. But I think what they are doing is going through the WP topics search and trying to find witches or anyone else who is not of their religion to target.
Now i have nothing against Jesus and Mary, just Paul and everyone after him, and I even have an altar with statues of their sacred heart forms on it. I have posted some positive things about how i relate to those deities, and yes i have posted some satiric things also, but i make fun of all religions, even my own. But i believe in Live And Let Live and Freedom of Speech and Religion, and I do not like this.
So i posted a comment on the second fundie’s site, which goes though without her needing to approve it, asking her to stop also. And just this second i got an email regarding her response to another comment on that page and i see my comment was deleted. Regarding the first guy i went to the WP forum and someone suggested reporting their site, which i reported that blog as “abusive” and the reason why. Regarding the second blogster i will give her a second chance but if she “likes” another of my posts i shall report her also. So we shall see what WP does to protect us from this kind of sly handed “tract handout” footprint method on our blogs.
I blog because i like to share my ideas and share others posts but i guess because of the nature of my blogs i should have seen this coming, not that i can do anything except what i have done so far, and posting this “heads up” to my fellow bloggers.
Has anyone else had problems like this?
