Figures, doesn't it?
I heard today that a Yale survey showed that anger in men is rewarded in the work place - by promotions and pay raises. Do you think that anger in women is seen in a positive light? Of course not. Anger in women is penalized in the work place. Women who exhibit anger are thought to be out of control. Women who exhibit anger will not get promotions and pay raises.

So...my entry yesterday must have made someone mad.

I'm like everyone else. I don't mind a less than perfect rating if the individual doing the rating can explain why my writing is less than perfect. *Smile* I do mind if our opinions are different and I'm being punished for that. But, I understand, even so...and don't get upset about that either - if the rater will 'fess up.

What infuriates me - as I'm sure it does you - is when a coward pops in and gives a low rating as a "drive by" without commenting or reviewing or letting you know who you've offended.

Up until yesterday, this crazy blog had mostly 5s, 4.5s and 4s. There was one 3.5 that was given by a newbie who thought my "book" was written well but really confusing and changed topics waaaaaaaaay too much. *Smile* When I explained that this isn't a book, but a blog, said newbie said, "Ooops. My bad." But he/she didn't change the 3.5. *Smile*

But in the wee hours of the morning, someone came by and gave my blog a 2. Like I said, if that's what the rater thought, then that's okay with me...if he/she would just drop by and tell me what I could do to improve.

I figure, since it was done anonymously, that it's someone who just didn't like yesterday's entry.
