i get what your saying but do you think for on something like formspring or facebook to respond to a hater comment like… “Was that really nesisary, mean was it really???” or “That’s just your opinions others love me/it” or even “Oh my gosh that’s totaly what i was aiming for!”. and then just forgetting about it? i was just wandring if those are ok responces.
Thank you for putting this out there. I had never heard of it and now I am aware of it.
i like what your saying, most of it is true… but it wont stop me from having a formspring because i like it even thoughh people dont like me on it. the people who say things anonymously are just too scared to say to your face or put their name.
I was wondering if your last name was Wickman.
lady, you are so smart. i’m glad you put this out there with courage and grace, as usual!
These are very good points. I’ve had a positive experience with formspring and only one “hater”. I think I used it to decent effect but I also agree with everything you’ve said here. I’m going to put some thought into killing the account.
Thank you, and as always, I love hearing what you have to say.
