Why Men Cannot be Witches

Why Men Cannot be Witches January 23, 2018

If you’ve made it this far, congratulations. You may have found yourself stirred by the title of this article, perhaps curious or maybe even outright offended. Well, let me quickly assure you that the title is meant as a joke. Of course men can be Witches!

What this article is really about is a behavior I’ve noticed a lot of since I started my blogging career: the tendency for people to comment on articles without having actually read them.

There are those who read a little bit of the article, feel moved by something, and then skip to commenting before finishing its entirety. Then there are those who simply read the title of the article and proceed* to comment without having read anything else.

Why is this a problem?

  • The reader doesn’t get all the information or context of the article which leaves them confused at best and misinformed at worst.
  • The author receives comments that clearly indicate the individual hasn’t actually read their article which is annoying at best and shitty at worst.

The moral of the story?

If you’re going to comment on an article, please read the whole thing.

And to the wonderful people who do read my articles, whether you comment or not, thank you! I really do appreciate all of your support!

* Thank you to the people who felt compelled to correct my grammatical error. You really are a treasure to society!
