    I look at GOMI from time to time, I’ve read some despicable things there, in particular the criticism of people’s appearance/bodies is hard to swallow. Personally when I go off a blog I just unfollow but I think it might be better that disgruntled readers have a place to vent rather than on the blog in question, dare I say some of it is witty & observational rather than extremely hateful? Most discerning people can filter the hateful stuff I’m sure. Although it definitely is weighted towards the hateful side too much.

      gracie: I agree with unfollowing. I’ve always felt that if you don’t like something, don’t spend your time reading it! Venting hateful commentary is a waste of time and I would rather see people spend that energy following through with their dreams.
