  1. I’ve felt the urge, but I just move on. I agree that there are tons of blogs to read and enjoy – more than any one person could ever read! It’s far too easy to be anonymously unkind and critical these days. If I am happy having my comment link back to my name and my blog, then I leave it. If not, I keep it to myself. I also try not to only follow bloggers who are just like me. If I disagree, I don’t necessarily “unfollow.” I don’t have to agree with every word a blogger types to enjoy their blog.

  2. I have not felt the need to comment negatively, I even feel a little guilty about MY last blog post because it is negative.

    If I don’t agree . . . I click away and/or stop following altogether.

    It may take a couple of posts before I stop following, but I would stop following before I commented negatively.

  3. I once had a semi-unfriendly comment from a mom blogger on my blog. In general, I have nothing but support so I have not experienced the dark side, but it also must depend on WHAT you blog on and WHAT you invite people to talk about. But it takes all kinds… right? It’s hard to get readers to comment so maybe some mom bloggers seek out controversial topics just to get a conversation going with their readers.
