Is this bad Blogger ettiquette??

**I am about to comment on another Blogger's comment. Bad form. I cannot help myself.**

I just read this comment on a bereaved parent's blog:

Thank you for sharing your struggle with us. I have 2 kids... I can't imagine what my life would be like if I lost them. Reading your thoughts as you journey to find peace in the midst of your sorrow helped me appreciate my children even more.

On behalf of all Bereaved parents everywhere, to the Non-Bereaved:
PLEASE KEEP ANY AND ALL SENTIMENT RELATING TO HOW YOU APPRECIATE YOUR LIVING CHILDREN AWAY FROM OUR FRAGILE SOULS.

Honestly? Do you really think that this is supportive? NO!!!! All it says to me is "nah, nah, na boo boo, I have my kids and you don't, ha, ha." I know you are trying to understand my perspective but OH MY GOD!!!!!!

Yeah, that's pretty bad. Why don't people think before they speak?

i'm one of those people who would say something like that.

I just read your archives, and wow... you write so well, so honestly....

I've had the odd commenter that has referred to their kids on my blog, and I must admit it does sting a bit...

Ouch, that would hurt, even though I know they mean it well.

Sara said...

Woah, that would hurt. Badly.

Someone made a comment like that on my blog. I kind of felt sorry for her because she evidently had the brains of a houseplant.

Though, perhaps I'm being unfair. To houseplants.

Yeah, it's bad blogging etiquette. And a lousy comment. My dh's advisor said something like this to him when Nicolas died. I guess it is meant to be honest, so fine, but...sheesh.

Niobe,

Houseplants. You made me snort water out my nose. Bwahh-ha-ha
