I think it’s cowardly and it feeds right into the whole “mumblrs=drama” thing that everyone keeps complaining about. If you absolutely HAVE to say something negative, you might as well do it with your name attached, you know? That’s how I feel, anyway.
I think it shouldn’t be put out there publicly at all because who knows what that person you’re trash-talking is dealing with. It just fucking sucks because this blog just started so who knows how many people are going to be negatively affected by it. They don’t have to “show it” for them to be really hurt by such awful comments as the ones I’ve already seen on the blog.
But yes if it’s going to be public at least attach your name because you deserve any flack you get for thinking what you’re doing is okay.
I really don’t like confessionsofamadmumblr because it’s just a place for mumblrs to bash other mumblrs publicly which can lead to a lot of hurt feelings. If you can’t keep it to yourself, then tell your friends in private. I’m disgusted that those running the blog are even posting the ones that completely put down another mumblr.
A lot of mumblrs struggle with depression, anxiety, and other mental illnesses. This blog is not helping them. And don’t pull the whole “if you don’t wanna see it don’t look at it” crap because you know everyone is going to read it and if they don’t read it, someone will likely go to their blog and tell them about it.
The idea of it is great for a way to vent I guess, but the URLs and people’s names should be left out of it. It’s not right.
