This Post Will Turn You Into A Non-Prankster.(...and if you cry tears of conviction, that's okay, too.)

Seriously, but seriously.
Pranks aren't nice, kids. I know a lot of people think it's funny to prank and practical joke, but I am not one of them. Making someone feel scared, anxious, worried, angry,etc. while you watch and snicker is inconciderate. Saying something unkind to someone and then adding "Just Kidding!" Isn't nice, either. Even if the person laughs along, it still hurts his or her feelings. But people do it because they need a place to let off some of their unresloved anger, and pranks and meanness seem safe and socially acceptable. People also do it out of immaturity and lack of empathy.
Whoever has been leaving fake comments on my blog, I just want to ask you to please stop. If you want to come out of the woodwork and tell me who you really are, that would be a mature step for you to take, and I would appreciate it. If you can't and just want to skedaddle, I'd settle for that, too. But everytime you pollute my comments, I am tempted to make the comments visible only after my approval, and I don't want to have to do that, because I want to continue to encourage genuine comments. But leaving the fake comments is the same as if you barged into my house and started permanent markering the walls, all the while laughing. It's just as bad. I'm just going to assume that you never thought of it that way before.
P.S. You're Forgiven.

Wow! I've been reading your blog this weekend but haven't had time to comment until now. Crazy stuff. Welcome to the world of internet weirdo's!!! Some people have too much time on their hands and think its funny to post strange and unkind comments. Hopefully this post will weed out those people and let us normal people leave comments for you to read and enjoy.
