No More Blogs

Friday, August 07, 2015

I'm the type of person who does not share personal insights. I don't do normal blogs. I think everyone needs to laugh at least once a day so I share jokes. Well, no more. I've been warned several times that my blogs have been removed due to insensitivity to others or too much sexual context. You can't even imagine how much I personally screen my jokes. However, there are still people who do not like them. I don't want to be kicked off SP so I'm not posting any more.
Thank you all for following me.

    I'm so sorry to see this. If people don't like your jokes they need not open your blogs. We All have that choice! Shame on Sparks!

    We lost a lot of good people and humor because people complain instead of just not going on someone's blog anymore. I miss Mel and I think that happened to her,too. emoticon

    So sad - I LOVE your blogs - they always give me a smile. I'm especially sad about how this must make you feel - I think you have a great sense of humor!

    I'm really sorry to hear it. Even when I'm not logging in on Spark I still pop in just to read your blogs. I share them with my friends and family too. I can always count on you for a good laugh.

    Society has changed so much. It's like our freedom of speech has been lost. Sad....

    Wow, that's so sad! I sure didn't see a thing wrong with your blogs. I definitely grew up with my dear Mother telling my sister and I that, "If you don't have anything nice to say, don't say anything at all!" And that's just how I feel about someone who would put down your blogs. Grow up, people!

    I have also had some problems with my blogs but usually contain information about healthy eating and they disappear. Why would anyone be offended by nutritional articles. And no I did not plagiarize them rather gave where they could be found. But Oh well. I'll find something else to write about. Don't let them force you to quit blogging. Just find a way to get around it. Hugs Pa.

    Good grief already. Sounds like there are some folks that need to grow up. Hope you still remain active! YOU deserve the SP support. I personally find your sense of humor very funny.

    Sorry to hear that. If someone doesn't like your posts, then they should just simply not read them.

    Wow, sorry to hear this. Seems I am seeing this more and more. What is wrong with people? If you don't like a blog or person don't read it or unfriend them. People need to grow up and stop being offended for every little thing.
    On that note, please blog once in a while and let us know how you are doing.

    Bummer! I'm with you - people NEED to laugh everyday. Will miss the smiles your blogs gave me, but totally understand it isn't worth the potential brain damage of trying to make sure NO one could possibly be offended.

    Your jokes were always a bright spot in my day, and I frequently passed them along to the more twisted members of my family. I'll miss you popping up in my friend feed. Stay well and be happy. emoticon

    By the way, there is NOT a JOKE out there that would not be offensive to at least one person in the world who cannot take a joke for what it is. A Joke.

    And yes I understand where you are coming from... I stopped posting jokes for the same reason... some holier than thou person or persons took offense at a joke and then gloated over the fact that they had caused the blog to be removed... Needless to say I found their gloating offensive... but being the better person... I just walked away, so to speak.

    I do hope that once your injuries have healed you will be blogging once again. There is always sharing the addresses of other people's blogs and articles on the web that you find worth sharing. Just a thought.

    sorry about this Geri think your jokes are great, in fact enjoy reading them, there are some here who think in a certain way & just complain all the time so its hard on us to lose your jokes

    I know what you mean....

    What I do not understand is this.... why people, who do not like what someone posts, keep coming back to complain...

    I agree they have a right to be offended by a joke or an opinion...
    But what about my right to my opinion and jokes that do not offend myself!!

    AND, I think the person who posted the blog labeled offensive should have the right to know WHO was offended and why, that is what they were complaining about...
    What ever happened to 'freedom of speech' in the USA.... this is originating in the USA isn't it?

    This response will probably get "Black Balled" !!
