Dear Anonymous People
Boy oh boy, I had the surprise of my life when I read some comments from nameless, faceless people in my Constantine from hell blog. Some were getting so unbelievably nasty I had to moderate the comments (which seemed to be coming from just one or two people). I watched in horror as someone even had the audacity to place stupid comments using the username ninascoops! Grabe, I guess it's my baptism of fire since I just started this blog just 2 weeks ago. Welcome to the wild wide world of the world wide web where anything goes.
Anonymous people, this is my blog and my home. You're welcome to visit, but I won't let you sh-t on my rug. I'm entitled to my own opinion and I can write whatever I want. I'm writing from personal experience and how I felt at the time. If you had a pleasant experience with the guy then good for you. If you want to praise him to high heavens, then get your own blog. Or go to a public forum. I would even welcome your posting a hyperlink here. Wala lang bastusan.
Some of you called me unprofessional. If I was, my disappointment with Constantine would've reflected in my reports. On the contrary, I even picked the best soundbites and made him look good.
Still, I thank you for your comments and your precious time. Hopefully one day, some of you will have the guts to introduce yourselves properly. I do have an idea who some of you may be since there were only a handful of people present in that room when I did my interview. But I don't want to jump to conclusions.
I really want to get past this. Some of you, I'm sure, I will be meeting again in the future. The truth is I don't want enemies. It's just not my personality. I didn't really think that one simple blog would generate such a reaction. I just wanted my visitors to enjoy all the flavors this site has to offer, yes, including the bad ones.
Honestly, ayoko nang mag-taray (because I'm really not) or show-off with smarty-pants comments. In the spirit of Christmas I sincerely want to make amends with those I might have offended, with Constantine's fans, and yes even with Constantine who's probably blissfully asleep in L.A. righ now with nary a worry in the world.
Nakakatawa, tayo pang mga Pilipino ang nagsisiraan. Haayy Buhay...
