I apologize for how rude this post may seem, but I only do it because I don’t think people in vulnerable situations should be preyed upon.
I’ve made a post disputing how Wendy gave a confused husband what I believe to be unconstructive advice regarding a cheating spouse.
Everyone has an opinion, and we’re all entitled to that. Except on Wendy’s website.
My initial post is still intact, as well as her response. But my 2nd response has been “moderated”. It did not contain any expletive or vulgar language so you know. In fact, here is my exact post so you know:
“No, I chose my words correctly. It was for comedic effect. But leave it to someone with what I would assume has a GED level education to pick apart the small things. Instead of replying to the main focus of my post, which was that you guilted the victim.
What’s next? Did I place an apostrophe incorrectly? Oh no wait, that was you with the sentence
And who is the “they” that you can’t believe *let’s* an idiot like me write an advice column?
Maybe you’ll bring patriot pride, or feminism, into the subject just to skirt the actual issue.
No you’re right I apologize, any moron can have an advice column nowadays thanks to the internet. But I suppose my point ultimately was to let people know they shouldn’t be listening to your “advice”. Especially when it comes to sensitive and complicated matters, because your the exact opposite of complicated.”
So whether you agree with me or not, just know that posts are being censored on this site. And harmful advice is being given out. Not exactly “American” in my eyesMikeFebruary 8, 2018 at 12:20 pm #738446
Here is the link for reference.
Yeaaaahhhh….most of us are longtime readers and know Wendy’s advice pretty well. In fact, sometimes, people disagree with her and she’s okay with it. It seems with this post, you have an ax to grind. Not sure what your issue is.
Oh. Andy Wendy isn’t the only moderator. So it may or may not have been her that deleted your asinine comment.
And FWIW, Wendy has a master’s degree.
Mike, did you even read what she wrote? She says she can’t tell if it’s sexting or not without seeing the texts themselves — how is that biased toward the wife when she’s saying she can’t answer that question? And how is it “belittling” a concern when she suspects there’s a larger issue at play than text messages?
Anyway, sorry your wife is sexting another guy, Mike.VathenaFebruary 8, 2018 at 12:35 pm #738453
But I’m sure that the original LW from 3.5 years ago has been monitoring that post on the daily and very much appreciates your support on what does or does not constitute “sexting”!JDFebruary 8, 2018 at 12:44 pm #738457
Wow. Mike, I am not the most loved person here. I am blunt, brash and do not share the exact views that Wendy does nor many of the readers. Wendy has told me to suck it up or the likes more than once. Sometimes I want to smack Kate, and then share a delicious cocktail with her and touch her hair. But you are asking for advice from people who have their views. This isn’t “tell me what I want to hear”. Put your big boy pants on.
You weren’t censored. All comments from new commenters, regardless of whether they’re from assholes or not, await moderation.
Also, you really expect us to believe you chose the word “aviary” instead of ovary for comedic effect? How is that funny? It legit just sounds like you used the wrong word, either because you really don’t know the difference between aviary and ovary or autocorrect or you don’t know how to spell. If you chose “aviary” to be funny, you are as good at comedy as you are at arguing a point.
