XVII A person with the name above asked me why? Why do the rest of the NEWS24 users not like me. Yet he never asked me why do I not like the NEWS24 users which would be  a fallacy. When I sign off this article or any other article then I have forgotten about them and their likes and dislikes.

Then, when I and Lord just GRRR Percy are alone then we can actually hoot with laughter at the idiocy I have to listen to. Lord just Grrrr is nobody’s fool. I remember one of my very first articles submitted to NEWS 24 and it was an epitaph to the late Susannah York. What was shocking was the mentality the troll displayed.

It was as if the world had its Mayan day. People have attempted to humiliate myself on these articles, yes, I have reacted negatively but to gloat over someone who has passed away well there are  limits to humanity. Some days I just wondered why I did not terminate my association with NEWS 24.

Then there was the laddy of 14/15 who wanted to teach me physics or something along that line. Lord GRRR barked himself silly. I over reacted and apologised to the laaitjie later on his face book. With all the down thumbs I was treated as the whore in the picture. Now down thumbs are part of my life and I get them everyday free of charge and accompanied by the usual insults. But who gives a damn.

What I find fascinating and very un- endearing is the unending lectures on Christianity and the associated learning’s. I always get the impression the author has copied the script from elsewhere and handed it up for the rest to feed upon. Now that reminds me that I am accused of copying and pasting on my articles.

Sadly, that cannot be so because I do not know how to copy and paste what I do want to learn, although it is cowardly, is to erase a comment, especially one done really nasty. I notice many on my articles have been erased after hours.

What I have seen and do see  every day is the utter ignorance displayed by some comments: Statistically Gauteng has the most persons commenting on NEWS 24 many of the topics revolve around mining but comment is indicative of absolute ignorance. Go in any direction and end up on a mine.

So all good things and some not so good come and then they pass. I am considering moving to Cape Town sometime in May and from that point I will discern from which way the wind blows. Adios Amigos:  No I will not be crying in my beerII
