Most of the time the comments I get are appreciative and lovely for which I am very grateful. I do not make videos for adoration but it certainly is a bit of a boost when a nice comment comes along! When I get negative comments, I try to take them constructively unless they are racist, sexual or insulting.
I can't remember the comment that this person wrote but it wasn't kind - it was a bit like one of those Bridget Jones Jellyfish sting comments - that is mingled in with a kind of compliment but is still actually kind of rude when you think about it and that makes you feel silly for being offended - but you're still offended!
So in short, it p*ssed me off enough to remove it and block this petty person from making more annoying comments about how crap my tutorials are and how boring my looks are - wouldn't you? As fellow bloggers and YouTubers, if you are, doesn't the meanness begin to get you down so I reserve the right to remove and block whoever I like on my channel and make no excuses about it. I feel that it's then out of my system and I am moving on! So I was amazed to receive an email (below) from Ms Indignant below and she felt the need to ask me why I have blocked her as if I should be lucky to have someone who clearly hates what I do as a viewer? Um help me out here, am I missing something?
I like think I am a kind person who is supportive and understanding of views even if they don't agree with my own. I have never written a negative comment on YouTube and I don't intend to as it is frankly, a little pointless and spiteful to those who have tried to make something interesting and not for personal gain. I want the make up community on YouTube to continue - it has been a place where I have learned so much and met and made some amazing friends so imagine if it was taken away because a few people can't control their urge to say something mean!
End of vent! I have now moved on again.
