Amusing LJ!

Yesterday another blogger decided to write a post about me. I won't mention his name here to draw further attention to the nonsense, but one comment to the post was particularly interesting:

"Пользователь peacetraveler22 не американка, а вероятнее всего гуская беженка. Тексты в его/ее блоге написаны не на амерыкэн-инглиш. Причем настолько не амерыкэн-инглиш, что oн/она даже не могёт имитировать. Брайтон Бичь - наше всё, бггг.."

Now I'm a refugee Jew in Brighton Beach! :)) How do people come up with such nonsense? The main question is why do so many people comment that my style of writing is not typical American English? I think it's a real curse to be mentioned in another blog, or even to make it to TOP LJ. Such attention draws a huge influx of trolls, which suddenly made their way to my last post. So I wish to thank my normal, dedicated readers for their civility and insight. Most often people are respectful here, even in the face of ideological disagreements. If I had to deal with the troll invasions on a frequent basis, I would probably leave LJ forever.

Happy weekend to all!

What's sad? Hopefully you mean the idiotic statement about my nationality.

Seems obvious to me also. :) But I suppose some people need to create conspiracy theories to occupy the empty space in their minds.

After two years, I'm still not used to the wild and insulting atmosphere of the Russian blogosphere. I wonder how many of these people would say the same thing in real life? Very easy to be a provocateur hiding behind a computer screen. :)

Judging by the word "гуская ", the author of the comment banal anti-Semite, then do not deserve attention.

This is a standard reaction typical for the most of humans: it's much easier to dismiss someone than to argue with them. You are not who you pretend you are, so your opinion is not worth considering. He is a troll, so... She is on a Kremlin payroll, so... He is a naive idealist, so... Very convenient.

Another typical trait of most humans - laziness! If some of these people took a moment to glance through my blog before insulting me, they would realize most of their statements are completely invalid. But I suppose that takes too much effort.

Re: the only possible answer
Mainly I'm trying to understand why so many Russians accuse me of being a former Soviet English teacher. :) Perhaps they aren't accustomed to seeing many English language texts or articles.

That blogger was a total jerk, I hope you haven't taken this incident close to your heart, you've got an amazing blog which is sincere and teaches open-mindedness (we, the Russians, do need this lesson).
Recently my fellow countrymen has been offering me so many opportunities for me to feel ashamed for them. Hope trolls weren't much of a nuisance.

Yes, he was a real asshole. I don't even understand the point of his post. He honestly thinks the way Hollywood movies portray Russians is reflective of the average American mentality? Movies and Hollywood are make-believe, fiction, meant to distract and entertain. Any logical human being knows this. Thanks for the nice comments about my blog. I try to write interesting things here, and always enjoy comments and insight from my Russian readers. I think we learn a lot from each other.

If you'd pay attention to every idiot here, then probably is better to leave LJ. There are some very nasty people here, professionals of Gebbels propaganda. They can't create anything worthy in technology or art, but compensate their impotence with huge hatred and intolerance. You may to allow comment "just friends" option, now many good journals doing that. I'd be very upset if you leave, of course, I love your LJ and always read every post

Thanks! I also read most of your posts, though I rarely have time to comment. It's difficult to even manage the comments on my own blog. I wish the best for your dear Roy's health. His photos always remind me of a skinny Santa Claus. :)

You know, now we have here an army of well-paid LJ users. Our government pays a salaries to these people for they write the pro-Russian comments or trying to insult other users. I'm sure it was one of them..

I think this pro-Russian blogging army is growing on a daily basis. Perhaps I should write the State Department, and ask them to pay me to counter all the ludicrous, anti-American viewpoints expressed on LJ. :) It is really spiraling out of control in recent weeks. I wonder how much these bloggers earn?

By the way
I wonder how that blogger could make such a mistake.
becouse
1. As a rule Brighton Beach guys dont speak english at all.
2. They hate Russia stronger than the other immigrants.
3. They know about current events in Russia much more than you know, becouse they are fond of watching russian TV.

Re: By the way
Because his post is not based in reason or logic. It was simply to draw hysteria and allow his readers to continue on with their "pindo" hate in comments. Just like his prior post, where I initially commented. Really, I wish Russians would create another insulting term for Americans. I get so tired of seeing this word "pindos" over and over again.
