I’ve had a break from the Facebook blog page, but I’m still getting messages every day. Not nasty ones, these are tourism based ones. I read all the lovely comments and I’m thinking why am I letting trolls ruin what was a really popular Facebook page.
I also realise that many of you are missing the blog posts because you aren’t on Twitter and Instagram, and because I write about other topics and not just Sligo I can’t share them to the Love Sligo group.
So, over to you. Should I stay or should I go? (and yes I’m obsessed by Stranger Things). If I stay there will be trouble (sorry I’ve branched off into the song!) if I stay I will have a zero tolerance level and I will block people. A couple of folks on my personal Facebook page said if I do block people and delete comments that it’s cenorship – but I’m not a news based page, it’s just a personal blog, and when nasty messages and comments are coming my way I will take action.
Anyway, let me know what you think.
Obviously stay and absolutely block for fun. You’re not EIR customer service, if people want to contribute, you set the rules. They don’t comply ? Bye bye.
I’m delighted that I’m not EIR customer service 🙂
Absolutely stay. You’re made of sterner stuff than you give yourself credit for.
I enjoy the page, but do you enjoy doing it? And its not censorship- folks can say what they like, this does not mean one has to listen to it- and if it’s nassy comments etc then its abuse. If these folks showed up at your door would you let them in- nope, you would shut the door on them- you can do the same here by blocking them. And you do not have to engage with them, explain etc. The main thing is Val, do what is right for you my friend ❤
