Disappointed…

I went out of town for a couple of days and when I come back I sadly have my first awful and mean comments left on my last post.  Of course they were made anonymously and most likely by the same person so therefore I can’t lay into that one person…so I just have to tell everyone.  I deleted the comments but some of you may have already seen them.  One even had an awful reference to my granddaughter’s picture in my header.  What’s wrong with people??  It makes me really cranky when some people think they can say whatever they want.  I have seen it happen to designers where someone has had the nerve to complain about a freebie given away on their blog.  Could there be anything more wrong with that?

 

Let me first say…I LOVE freebie hunting.  Second…I love offering up what I find to all of you.  I try to be consistent on my posts, but sometimes real life gets in the way or I just need to get off the PC and get fresh air and vitamin D.  It is summer ya know and I do work a full time job.  I know 99.9% of you are grateful and patiently wait for my next post.  The rest of you should heed the saying if you don’t have anything nice to say…say nothing at all.  I don’t want to turn on comment moderation or turn comments off…so please no more nasties.

 

That's all I will say on this.  I could go on and on, but that would do nothing…I’m moving on and letting go.  I hopefully will have a freebie post by tomorrow.  I sincerely hope you didn’t miss any awesome freebies.  If you did…I did too.  Make sure you bookmark the “Designer Survivor” blog so you don’t miss any of the good stuff for the next 3 weeks or so.

 

Bye for now,

 

Suz

That really sucks. I'm sorry that happened to you. It has happened to a few other Blogs I subscribe to also. They don't let aynosomous people comment anymore. I greatly appreciate all you hard work in searching for these freebies! I think you deserve days off! Hugs!

I'm so sorry that happened to you. Of course you deserve time off! I really appreciate all you do in finding freebies for us! Thank you so much!

Thank you for everything you do with the freebie hunting. I check your blog every night, sometimes it's new and sometimes not. People are really rude everywhere. I did not read the comments, but I wouldn't worry about them. Your Grand daughter is tooooo cute, and you know that. Don't waste your energy on negative comments. Lots of us think you are great.

Some people are just jerks!! I know that I don't say thank you for finding all the freebies for us...and I need to because I find them absolutely fantastic. But I would never expect you to put this ahead of your real life....good lord. Hopefully you can forget about the selfish people and just enjoy what you do....WHEN YOU HAVE TIME!!! :-) THANK YOU for all your hard work!!!

I didn't see the comments but ignore them. Some "people" live for trying to bring others down. Thank you for all the freebies you post. Looking forward to the next one. :)

Dear Suzee, I´m so sorry to hear this from you.. I´d kick this person to.. :) I´m one of your 99.9% group who is waiting for your new post (btw I have the similar blog - maybe this person leave me some "beautiful" comment on my blog too - LOL).
Sorry for my bad english but I have to write it to you :)
Thank you for all!
Have a nice day.
Hugs,Jitka.

Unfortunately, I saw some of the nasty comments and I have to say that my heart went out to you. I may be wrong, but the comments seemed to be left by someone very immature with a lot of time on their hands. I can't believe that anyone who takes the time to scrap memories of their family and life would insult you and yours. You are much appreciated whether you post everyday or not. Glad to hear that you felt like getting out of the house;good to know that you are recovering quickly from your surgery.

I also got nasty comments in the past and sinse than use moderation and it's pretty ok now. I just don't know why people must do such things especially when you provide a free service or free goodies. I love the picture of your granddaughter in the header! And try to ignore the jerks that just want to spoil your day. Don't give in to them. I have you in my google reader and am always looking forward to new posts and thank you for them!

I'm so sorry to hear that someone had the nerve to say such nasty things to you. Instead of doing that this ungrateful person should be thanking you for doing all the legwork. It's not easy what you do and I do appreciate it.

Kaesmom said...

Oh my gosh. You're doing all of us a huge favor by posting these freebies!! How can someone be so heartless and say something negative to you?? Please keep in mind that that was ONE person among many of us and WE ALL appreciate what you do.

Christy said...

Set your blog to refuse anonymous comments and move forward. Thanks for all you do. I know it takes enormous amounts of time to track things down and post the previews and links---- have a great day!

Christina said...

Oh I am so sorry, people can be so mean! Your grand daughter is cute!! Thanks for all your hard work!

There are people walking around on this planet who still have to learn a lot....
They apparently don't know that nice words work better than the nasty ones.
It is summer, we are all more outside when the sun is shining. There are more things in life than freebies. They won't walk away and please take your time to get some color on your skin!!
Thank you for your hard work and enjoy the sun! :)

I think you are WONDERFUL for what you do for us! Thank you SO much! Please know that for every IDIOT out there, there are numerous people who have manners, are friendly, kind, and who don't throw their own baggage onto you. You are wonderful! Have a fabulous day!

I am sorry that someone would make rude comments about you or your family. I have enjoyed coming to your site. For the record I love the pic of your grand-daughter on the header. I just want you to know that I appreciate you for all your search time. Keep up the good work and trust in the Lord to take care of everything else. Thank you again for being here.

I rarely leave comments because my PC is so slow and there's not enough time in the day, etc. But I want you to know how much I appreciate what you do. It saves people like me a LOT of time searching. You are the first site I visit in the mornings. Thanks a million Suzee!

I feel sorry for people who write such nasty comments. They are obviously missing something in their own lives and feel the need to elevate themselves by pulling others down. Your grand daughter is just the cutest little girl ever... I guess someone is jealous =) Your blog is FABULOUS and it is obvious how much hard work you put into it. So from me a huge thank you!

Dear Suz: Sorry I'm so late posting here. I am way behind on my "reader" reading and just catching up on all your great posts. When I saw this, it made me really mad! I for one love and appreciate all you do and the great service you provide for all of us in scrapbook-land, both as designers and scrapbookers. I don't know what the comments were, and I'm glad you basically said "screw you" and moved on. That's all the attention you should give it. Take care, and thanks again for all you do!
