I really love checking the stats for my blog (and really any website I’m running). However, I’m always a little disheartened when people search for some swear word and it gets directed to my site. I understand why someone might get to my site for adult tv or something like that. I don’t like it, but at least I understand that I have blogged about TV and there is a good chance I’ve said something about acting like an adult. That doesn’t mean I have to like it. In fact, if there was a way for me to filter those types of things out I would.
I love getting traffic and I love when websites link to me, but it really surprises me how much vulgarity there is on the net. I’m sure they are spam pages created by robots, but how did they find me? There’s no cure words on any part of this site. I don’t use that language and quite frankly I find it vulgar and unattractive when other people do. I am sympathetic to people that have been raised in that kind of environment and don’t know any difference. I’m still sad that our society is reaching the point where so many people think that vulgar language is acceptable. It’s not acceptable and points to our lack of ability to communicate today.
Trust me, I understand the urge to let out a nice profanity laced tirade. Just don’t tell me that you HAVE to do it. It’s a choice to use that or not. Trust me. You can still communicate anything you want to communicate without that type of language.
