Power of the Moderator
There used to be a blog that I would frequent and from time to time I would comment. Well I noticed recently that my comments had been altered. Well the comment itself was not altered but my name was. Normally my name would show as Gil (which I prefer to go by) and it would link to my site. Well they were all changed to my full name (Michel Ngilen) and had no link. Now I don’t know if I should be offended or not. I actually don’t mind that the link was deleted but changing my name? I’m kind of torn about it.
The thing is, I don’t think that my name would have ever have been changed if it hadn’t been for the fact that the blogger began dating someone who goes by Gil. I think that’s what gets me most. It makes me feel like I am less of that person now. Someone felt that I shouldn’t go by that name and someone else deserves that name more than I do. Perhaps it’s just petty of me. It’s just a blog right?
