Hairy deal gets a shave... =D

I received a comment today in response to my Eowyn vs. Arwen post from a certain 'Natalie Joy' (A 'certain Natalie Joy? I sound like Jeeves!). It made me sigh:

"Who is more important, Eowyn or Liv?
As a human being I know that if I was Liv, and I saw what was going on here, I would be very hurt.(I'd probably cry....=)
As a Christian, I know that I, nor anyone else, has the right to criticize Liv for deleting her posts.
"Actually I'm not wondering, its kinda obvious."
How can it be obvious??!! We have no idea!
Liv is such a sweetheart(I've met her in real life), I feel so bad for her!
If I have offended ANYONE at ALL. I am so sorry. Please forgive me. But can't we have more respect for Liv's feelings?"

Dear Natalie Joy:

Please know that I am NOT criticizing Liv for deleting her posts at all. If anything, I think it was a good decision. =D

Nor do I remember saying anything critical of Liv. I'm sure she IS a sweetheart in real life!

I might point out, though, that she presented herself as a debater ONLY on her old Arwen v. Eowyn blog. It was this Liv (and this Liv's feelings!) that I was addressing.

Anything I wrote was in that same spirit of debate that she herself used! I don't believe Liv would be hurt- I'm pretty sure she would recognize a debate when she saw one... =D

I was referring to the Eowyn vs, Arwen debate only, which she opened to the world wide web --on a personal basis, I know her not at all!

Thanks for letting me clear this up!

Not to seem rude, but from the post in question I had the same impression as Natalie Joy.:/ Just a friendly reminder to be careful how you word things especially when speaking of other people.;)

No problem, Echoes! That's actually the reason I wrote this post-- I realized that I might have SOUNDED rude even though that was not what I meant. I wanted to clear everything up and let everybody know that I don't have anything against anyone here on Blogger!

And yes, it is always good to be careful with what we say--- I share Elizabeth Bennet's "Unruly tongue" and I'm working on curbing it!

=D
