This isn't the post I was going to do tonight but I stopped by Debbie at Debbie's English Treasures today and she is taking a break from blogging. Our friend Mandy at The Vintage Kitten was being "stalked" and so she is not accepting comments on her blog. Debbie commented on blogs to support Mandy and she is now getting not so friendly emails. I guess I don't understand why anyone would do that. I read lots of blogs and made lots of friends before I started blogging and in the few months I've been blogging my list has grown. I love all of you and think you are great. I look forward to reading and commenting and even worrying about you when things are tough and life isn't being fair. We have ups and downs in our lives and having the support and friendship of our fellow bloggers means so much to me as I'm sure it means to all of you.
I think that whoever is doing this is so unhappy and miserable that they have to try to make every one's lives unhappy and miserable. Well as far as I'm concerned they can't!!! I hope Mandy and Debbie come back to us. They are wonderful bloggers and friends who make me smile and laugh. Isn't that why we are here?

Blogging to me is somewhere I can be me. I can express myself, complain or tell you something awesome that is happening in my life. I have made some wonderful friends who I may never meet but feel so close too. I love you all and think it is so sad when our friends aren't allowed to express themselves without harrassment.

The picture of Anna and Bailey was taken when they were a lot younger but they look so serene and relaxed I thought it would be a nice picture for this post. I love you Mandy and Debbie and hope you come back to us.

It's a shame that people have to resort to negative behavior like stalking, when there are so many positive things they could be doing.
The photo is adorable Bailey looks like he's out for the count; Anna looks so peaceful.
Thanks for stopping by to visit me at the Alamo!

I agree with Nola, to me blogging is done in the spirit of friendship.Meant to enrich our lives with new friends.
There are not so nice people out there.I hope they dont come to my blog.
Have a good weekend

I do hope that both Debbie and Mandy will not be put off blogging either. There's lots of us out there that just love them to bits. I have met sme wonderful people since blogging, and it's a shame that there are a few people out there wanting to spoil the good natured friendship going around on blogs. Lovely picture of your cats!

Sorry your friends are having problems. Have they reported the posts? Let them know there are many people supporting them!

Bebe said...

Hi Judy ~
There are always going to be people who have to put other people down to feel better about themselves. That is just so sad. Why can't everyone support and encourage one another?? Blogging is supposed to be fun and uplifting. I guess those idiots that do this sort of thing don't have anything better to do with their time than cause problems. The scales are definitely in favor of the nice people(like you!) I've met through blogging, rather than the nitwits, so they are not winning!!
Lots of hugs, Bebe :)

Sorry about your friends. Bailey and Anna are fine kitties! They look so peaceful like they do not have a care in the world. Don't ever introduce blogging to them! LOL!

The Vintage Kitten said...

Hiya Judy, Thanks again for your support. I am honestly not bothered at all about this person and wouldnt have mentioned it, but rather than go around everyones blog to tell them the comments would be removed for a little while I chose to do what I thought was a humourous post on it. I never once thought it would upset Debbie in such a way that she would comment on lots of others blogs to tell them. I spent hours replying to everyone who left a show of support so I may aswell have told everyone personally in the first place. Sadly it has led to Debbie receiving not so nice comments now herself which is why I suggested she remove the post. Ive emailed her and hope she will come back. Mr K has bought me a new camera so I will be back soon with better photos if I can work out how to work it!! Anna and Bailey are beautiful. I like seeing them on your main page when I come to visit. Take Care Mandy XX

How awful!! I`ve only just discovered her blog....what a shame. But good for her for being able to handle it in the way she is, with comedy. Thanks for dropping by for a visit :) Love your cats!

Hi Judy,

Very sad, very sad that these people have nothing positive to do with their time. I am stepping up my prayers. I guess they just move from target to target.

There is a video on my blog that your friend from the market may want to watch. It is about the FDA G.Act. We talked about it a while ago. It looks like it may happen soon. My business will be over as the fees, and all the rules will put me right out of business.

On a lighter note, have a beautiful weekend.
Enjoy your weather.

Blogging is supposed to be a positive thing, not full of stress. I don't know why anyone would harrass another person like that! Thank goodness it doesn't happen too often.
Take care, DebraK

Brenda Kula said...

Hmm. What kinds of things were they doing? I've been really lucky. No bad stuff, no bad comments. Just nice folks being nice.

What is the matter with people!???

FancyHorse said...

I am so sorry. I don't know Mandy and Debbie, but I hate that they were treated that way. I hope they come back, too.

I love your kittens! They are so cute!

melissa said...

Kitties! :D My favorite.

That stinks about Mandy and Debbie. I've been stuck in two weird online situations in the past 10 years. Luckily it was more of a group problem than individual and I was able to extricate myself easily. It's horrible to be the main target. I have hope that whoever is doing that will soon cease to get any amusement out of it and move on. Pathetic. Many good wishes to both ladies.

Hey Girlfriend, I Hope the girls come back too...that is such a shame when one person has to break the spirit of's wrong in every aspect.
Sweet Sweet Anna and Bailey....they are just sooo darn cute. And hey, would you QUIT making all those YUMMY foods....I get so hungry when I visit your blog.
Love to you my friend, Amy (Mom to the Four Sisters)

Hi sweet Friend,
Thanks so much kind for your support!
I always knew that I could count on YOU!
Unfortunatly out of the 92 people that have replyed to my plea... most of them have or are getting bullied or, know of someone that are in these same UNFAIR SITUATION!
I think that something needed to be said... and I`M SO GLAD THAT I DID!
At least they know that they are not the only ones!
And that they can ALWAYS find support on their blog friens!

Once again... THANKS so much!
Love Debbie & Alan.
