Calming down now…
I do feel she bases a lot of what she does on double-standards. Freedom of Speech (where she chooses who has that freedom and who doesn’t; Etisalat shouldn’t ban site, but she should ban Balushi?), is probably the biggest one.
And I do feel that a lot of you are idolizing her for her fame; without realizing the rants that take place between you all in her blog are the only reason she has that fame in the first place. I’ve not been around here long enough to know her history, and I haven’t read her whole blog; I have no intention of doing so.
But what I’ve seen is in my opinion a very negative point of view of the UAE, or at least a very negative presentation off all that’s to offer here; only choosing the nasty stories to comment on and rarely saying anything appreciative.
I also believe that if she can draw the line and cut someone like Balushi out, or delete comments she feels are insulting; she should be able to delete the ones that someone tells her are personally insulting because it has to do with her family, and potentially very hurtful.
I over-reacted; and maybe I wasn’t patient enough with my response. That’s how anger works sometimes, I suppose.
I called SD a bunch of horrible names and I had no right. I have no excuse, other than the fact that I’m a stupid, little, emotionally immature girl sometimes. I’m not going to offer one better than that, either.
I’m not going to delete this rant of mine; unless SD requests it. And that’s because I don’t believe deleting something you regret saying can take it all away; but I do believe in respect for another person (so long as I’m not fuming with rage).
And yes, I regret that outburst.
I’m sorry for the nasty names, and I’m sorry for the anger, and I’m sorry if I acted too soon and maybe if I hadn’t, you would have deleted those posts on my behalf. If not, I believe you need to learn a little about respecting others, despite the free speech line you’re famous for.
But I meant what I said about what I feel for your Blog, and the way you represent yourself. I didn’t really form a solid opinion of that until this, actually. And I may still change my mind. But for now, this is the truth of it from my eyes.
