And you are?

So my favorite columnist of all time Eric D. Snider, recently posted a little ditty regarding different types of commenters on blogs. He claims everyone falls into one of these ten categories.

Well, here...... just read it yourself and then say what kind of commenter YOU think you are. I'll then tell you if you're right or not.

The 10 Types of Internet Comments


The evolution of the Internet has led to almost complete interactivity...



ERIC D. SNIDER MADE ME TAKE THIS DOWN.


MAJOR FROWNY-FACE MAKING


WAAAAAA WAAAAAAAAA

I remember taking a survey once about what kind of salty snacks I liked to eat.

Markie23 said...

^^#4

Memzy said...

Ah Eric Snyder sure brings back some memories. I'm 1-4 depending on my mood. Wouldn't you agree?

Memzy said...

I could totally guess other peoples tho.

Sox said...

If I comment I get to be judged. Now why would I do that?

Jenny ESP said...

He's missing a few, like the "one-upper" who is unimpressed with anything you have to say cuz they've had a similar, yet infinitely more amazing experience.<--There I am, being #11.

^^I'm also #2.

Lollerz.

^^And #7.

Edward.

^^And #10.

Gotta love Eric D. Snider. I tend to be mostly #1, but I'm probably #4 more often than I'd like. Sometimes I leave comments just because I want comments on my own blog, or I know that getting comments makes the person happy. And, if I don't really have much to say on the topic, but still want to leave the comment for the above reasons, well then...you get random "words on the internet."

I'd say we're missing a number 12 too. The person who always reads everything her friend writes and comments so her friend will know that she's reading. I could be 1, 2, or 4 depending on the day. Ooooh. Maybe there should be a number 13. The schitzophrenic commentator who's always responding in a different way. Ah hah. See? (Memzy, that does not mean you:)) (really)

Landee said...

I'd say you are all diagnosing yourselves pretty accurately. I'd say I tend to be #2 but also the #2A One Upper that Jespy invented.

I'm going to start being #7 a lot more tho cuz that sounds funnerer.

Memzy said...

No I think you are right Stands...that's def me. #13. I like it.

Cristin said...

Uh..this one time I took a survey...well, I'll just link it for ya. But it was really kewl an awl dat. I'd have to say I would add more to the list but I'm also FAAAR superior to whoever this guy is. I love rainbows.

And the answer is....I think I'm a bit of all of them depending on my moode.

Flem said...

I thought I was no. 2 but maybe I am a 10. I thought 10 was the funniest response.

I don't know what this type is, but memz and landee used to make fun of me for commenting without prior comments. So that is no. 14.

Based on ^^^ I must be a 4 or 6. Also I don't think haters comment over here so no one is actually an 8.

Katie said...

Face it ladies, you are all number sevens, all 'cept me and eekareek...might I add...in your face.

You also know what is great about me? I am so diverse that I can be any one of those. I know exactly what people want to hear, and I give it to them. I can sense that you are in the mood to be brought down a notch-the reason I point out your extreme oldness. So, I am everything to everyone. You're welcome.

Katie said...

Dang it! I should have read all the other comments before I opened my big yapper. I am stealing material, but I am positive I did it better so...

ManicMandee said...

I see myself in several of those. I guess it depends on who is posting and what they posted about and how I'm feeling. Too many variables. But now I'm gonna be all the more self-conscious about what I say in comments. My whole theory is a comment is appreciated more than no comment at all. Even if the comment is pointless.

lovedkat said...

well im #3 but i dont want to steal anyone elses anwer, is that against the rules....lol

Annie said...

I fit it to so many of those categories I'm a little confused and disturbed by myself at the moment. Give me some time to think about it and maybe I will just have to stop commenting all together.

This post is stupid. Aren't you supposed to be in the kitchen cooking dinner or something?
