I make mistakes. I’m human.
But what really gets to me are the jerks that correct me in the comment section in a real snarky manner.
They like the attention. They like to be a show off. They like to embarrass me.
If I’m wrong, I’m wrong and I do my best to correct the error. I get corrections and as long as they are courteous, I have no problem with them. I welcome them.
I pump out a lot of reviews. Mistakes are bound to occur.
So this Carlos A. comments and is just the type I described above. I write him an email telling him it ain’t cool to do this to me in public. My email is available and out of courtesy a cool guy would let me know I screwed up. But no, this guy had to do it so he could feel important.
This is word for word what I wrote to him:
“Do me a favor and don’t correct me in public and embarrass me like that. My email address is on the home page and you could have told me privately that I fucked up.
Just not cool.”
This is what Carlos replied with..a threat:
“Ok. Do me a favor and do you’re homework before putting up a review. It’s you’re job to give accurate information to your readers and its also your job to refrain from using foul language when addressing one of your readers via e-mail. Is a matter a fact, I am actively involved in the cigar community and I will not tell you in what fashion or for who but I will make sure to post your your offensive e-mail on cigar blogs and also show it to other manufacturers who are BOTL.”
(The foul language he is referring to is me saying I fucked up.)
I wrote him back and told him I’ve had better and more powerful people try to take me down with their threats.
“Can you introduce me to your daughter? I’d love for you to be my father in law so you can give all your misguided information. Instead of sending harsh e mails worry about getting insurance for your wife you low life. If you were successful in your earlier life your wife would b in good hands right now. Stop spending money on cigars you cant afford and help your wife… low life.”
I get this shit from people that need to feel good about themselves by putting others down.
Low self esteem.
