This is FABULOUS!!
My current blog is a little new, so no hate mail yet. However, it happens. Only a matter of time. So glad to know there's a place to come and vent instead of freaking out on a reader on my own blog. Keepin' the meanies out!

BEST IDEA EVER! :)

Lori E said...

I wish I had saved the one I got. Some backhanded comment from some weird guy that said basically "for a piece of crap my blog isn't too bad". Seriously.

Angie @ Thrifty Like Me said...

This blog is so stupid. I can't believe I just wasted 5 minutes of my life reading it. What a waste of cyber space.

JUST KIDDING!

Love this blog!! Such a great idea girls! I'm proudly posting a button on my blog.

Greta Koehl said...

Absolutely awesome concept for a blog. Gotta share this with my fellow bloggers - I know a few who have received some absolutely "out of the blue" malicious comments.

LOVE this!!!

Angie @ The Country Chic Cottage said...

Fabulous!! Love your guts!! :)

anna p of just me. said...

this is a great idea!! some people are so rude. i mean seriously! who has the time to actually write up something that is so snarky, condescending and uncalled for? and who made them the blog police?
i hope this works as a good outlet for everyone. :)

Sandy aka Doris the Great said...

Wonderful idea! I'm spreading the word about you; you're my blog post today!

The Answer Is Chocolate said...

Love it. I have been fortunate to only get spam and no actual snotty or hateful mail but I figure it's only a matter of time. So now I know where to come! Honestly these people need to get a freaking life.

Kathy S said...

Awesome idea! and let's stop the haters or shame them into stopping their poor behavior!

Jessa Smith said...

I think this is awesome! I love this. I joined the crusade even though my blog is little, but I love this idea too much not to join. I haven't had hate mail yet but this is where it'll go the day I do!

Melody said...

Great idea...but some people are just mean and nasty(they usually are the ones who LOVE to dish it, but just can't TAKE IT!!) Keep your chins up and just keep on keepin' on.....Oh and I love the blog...

Jennie said...

HEEHEEE!

Madigan at madiganmade said...

What a great way to turn a negative into a positive!
And make me laugh in a way... it is both sad and funny to see the effort rude people put into their comments. Really people?
Love this site's idea.

Bella@Bellabeforeandafter.blogspot.com said...

Love your guts even more girl. This is so great. I've read some nasty comments, and have had to delete a few myself. Wish I had known about this then, lol. I just read one today at my friends blog, I have to tell her about this, too funny!!!
Hugs,

Bella :)

House Revivals said...

This is a great idea! I don't know why some people are so mean and rude. What a fun idea to support your fellow bloggers!

Nat said...

LOVE this idea! It's like catching people writing on the bathroom wall! You guys ROCK! :)

makellar said...

Hey, I subscribe to most of your blogs. Great jobs, girls!! Okay, I don't always like everything but we are not all alike, right? I would NEVER be so rude to write someone a nasty comment. My mother always said "If you don't have something nice to say, don't say anything at all." To sign their comments anonymous is like the bully in high school isn't it? Maybe a little jealousy going on because you can do something 'Anonymous' can't? Sorry, I am not going to subscribe to this blog, using my time for the good stuff! Thanks for the hard work and sharing your great ideas!

Rebecca@This Present Life said...

I love this idea! And I love the idea of responding to these rude people. As my mom always said, "kill 'em with kindness."

JHill said...

Heck yeah! Love this!

Now I gotta go dig out the kah-RAY-zee comment I got earlier this year....

Kendra said...

I love this! Given that my blog is very new and I'm pretty sure the only people who read it are my husband and best friend, I haven't received any hate mail (yet). Nonetheless, I think this is so valuable for bloggers! Keep up the good work...

Lindsay said...

What a fantastic idea! My blog is still fairly new, but I joined your crusade. Keep up the AMAZING work, you guys are so inspiring.

Lolly Jane said...

this is a good way to vent. instead of stooping to the idiot's level, you put it out there and the majority of people can pick the comment apart themselves. we'll offer support & all agree how boring of a life the idiot must be to go around making rude comments. love it. xoxo

Jessica @ My World - Made By Hand said...

Love it...I too have received some nasty-grams but I have long since deleted them. I would love to respond publicly to some of those...I'll be sure to submit mine before deleting next time.

Court said...

Love it!! I am not going to be able to stay away! It still surprises me how many haters there are in our blogland world!
But, I am loving the way they all handled their hate mail!
A reader for life!!!

awesome blog. I'm loving this! For those who haven't rec'd any hate mail "yet", I'm sorry to say that it's only a matter of time. I never thought I'd receive any; my blog is very neutral, I don't tackle controversial issues...and I've gotten a few hateful comments! I couldn't believe it! (I deleted them.)

I just recently posted one controversial piece, and people were mostly nice in the comments. It was pretty interesting...

Amber Johnson said...

Epic idea! My blog is really new and haven't recieved any hate mail...yet...but I know the day is coming! Thanks for a great idea!

Bernie said...

I love this idea. I'm going to be adding your button to my blog this morning. My friend told me about your site and I LOVE IT!! What a great idea.

Melissa @ Love Affair With My Brother said...

Just found your blog this morning and I.LOVE.IT!!! I am your newest follower and I only wish I was half as witty as you ladies when dealing with spammers and haters. Thank you for giving me something to smile about this morning!

Meanies obviously have supratentorial problems (that's what we label patients w/ psych issues). Why are they always anonymous or impossible to contact?

You've created a great resource for venting, plus H-I-L-A-R-I-O-U-S commentary to boot!

Nelson Rogers Design said...

Love this blog - why do people need to be mean to make themselves feel better and is that really a good way to release anger/tension, etc.

blog on!

Glenda said...

Love this blog. Your comments are right on. Sometimes you just have to let friends know when someone does or says something stupid. This is a perfect venue. LOL at some of the comments, and at the responses (Mandi, you are pretty dang funny...."is her name Luci-fer" hahahah! That was a good one!)

Kindra-At Home With K said...

I just found your blog today. Thanks for giving me a good laugh to start my day! Can't wait to read more past posts to catch up!

Miranda said...

Someone referred me here today after reading a post I wrote about my hurt feelings brought on by a hurtful comment. I love that you guys have given us a platform to vent and talk about those kinds of things. This blog is a great idea. Thanks, again! Oh, and I happened to catch that episode when you were on Nate's show. AMAZING! What an inspiration you are to all of us!

Sincerely,
Miranda

HAHAHA! This is Awesome!! So glad I found you guys!!

Tawney Peterson said...

This is the coolest idea EVER! I have hesitated at creating my own blog because of people like this. I am a pretty easy going person and it always shocks me when people say mean things. MEAN PEOPLE SUCK! My mother always told me if you don’t have something nice to say don’t say anything at all. It doesn’t mean you can’t have an opinion just don’t spread the hate, I mean come on people! Thanks for the laughs =)

JAAFG said...

Let me just say this made my day! I don't know how, but I stumbled onto this after hours of reading other blogs from crafters, DIY'ers and wonderful women who share their creativity with the world. I'm just getting into the whole crafting-repurposing-creating-blogging (truth be told, I haven't even created my blog yet, the technology involved in making them adorable somewhat intimidates me) and I LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE that I found this page. I know people aren't always as kind as we wish they would be, and this is a good way to get it out without being hurtful towards those people. You all are hilarious, talented, and beautiful. I can only hope that once my blog is up and running, that I can be as successful as all of you.

Jenni said...

May I just say that this is awesome! What a fabulous idea! I kept reading about "hate mail" on twitter and had no idea! I am so glad I found this!
THANKS!
Jenni

Suzy Myers said...

LOVE THIS!! I only wish I hadn't been so quick on the delete button on a few of my comments!

chelton said...

I LOVE this place! I happened upon it by following a link of a link of a link... from twitter somewhere ;) I currently blog for business and have been considering blogging personally (my life is a bit of a Seinfeld episode). BUT~ the COMMENTS... :) At least now there is a place I know of where the bad ones can go to die-- HA!

Kitty said...

LOVE this blog!
While I have never had a mean comment left for me a friend did and would defend herself so I posted this in response...please enjoy

Julie said...

I love this blog and am so glad that I was referred to it when I got some mean comments sent my way. Why live with the glass half full, why break other people down, if you have nothing nice to say then flat out don't say it... bite your tongue. I am so glad to be a follower here. Have a great week ladies!

Centsational Girl said...

How do I love thee? Let me count the ways! I adore a forum for addressing negativity, but even more I LOOOOOOVE love love, (did you hear me say love?) that you're all about keeping it positive and LIFTING EVERYONE UP! It's like, the exact opposite of high school and Real Housewives.

A new HUGE fan!

Nicole said...

What a great mission! To lift each other up. Something like this is a wonderful idea. I look forward the reading all of the funny comments.

Kiwi The Kreator said...

I'm just mouth-hanging-open amazed at some of the stuff I've read on here! I mean...REALLY??? HMMM...I've Pinned you...you know, just IN CASE!!!!

Kristin @ My Uncommon Slice of Suburbia said...

Just found you through the fab Centsational Girl!
Oh how I love this idea! There is nothing worse then women that are mean to each other, I don't get it and never will.
I'm so glad you have started this blog so we can expose the haters, too bad most of them don't have the guts to put their name behind the comments :)
I hope to never have to use you but you will be the first to find out if I do.
Kristin

Sue said...

What a fantastic idea!!! Great to know there is a place like this. I enjoy reading all of the posts and the wonderful support you give people. Imagine having to suck in those bad comments alone, ugh!!

Aubry June said...

HILARIOUS! I just wish i was interesting enough to get to create a SECOND blog on pure hate mail! :) LOVE IT!

I have to say that I love what you are doing here. Take it from me, I was "trolled" to death on the website that I first started blogging on by a small group of people. I eventually had enough and moved to another site, but not before things got entirely creepy...some of the stuff would honestly make you nauseated! It's so nice to know that if (and knock on wood, it hasn't happened in over a year) it happens on my new site, I'll just send you a link! Keep up the good work, ladies! Laurrie w/ Life in an RV

Princess FingersGluedTogether said...

Love This Blog!

Deb's mind said...

Great idea. I have never had a mean comment yet....but I know the first time I get one .....my blog will be considered BETTER!! Love your sass!!

armchairknits said...

This is awesome! Best things since beans and rice.

GinnyLeigh said...

Ladies let me just say, you are wonderful! I am bran-spanking new to the blogging world and have honestly be a bit scared of hate comments and such. Well no more I say! If on the occasion that I receive one I shall march right over here and give it the old what-for! Thank you for creating such a positive spin on something that could be very spirit crushing.

God Bless!

Bonnie ~ a wee Meenit said...

I am so loving this blog right now.
The reality is that haters really hate them selves, but try to pin it onto others.They aren't paid to read a blog, so why criticize. Guess my Momma teaching me that if you can't say anything nice, then don't say anything at all!!

Suezi said...

I love this blog!! I never can figure out why people feel the need to leave such hogwash comments! Keep giving those haters the rath of Mandi!

Cherica said...

OMG!!! This blog is so awesome!!! 'Nuff said!

Lone Tigris said...

I just want to thank-you for having such an awesome blog.

I just recieved my first hate mail on one of my own blogs on tumblr (which up until that point had been hate-free.)

The person reblogged my post and caption and called me all sorts of cruel names in the tags because I had a different opinion from their own.

I blocked them and responded to their comments, but I still felt awful and sad.

I love my blog and I really, really hated it, and the whole community, at that moment.

I went googling for some help and I came across your blog in a link and I just have to say thank-you again.

I'm so pleased to see my situation isn't completely an isolated one, and we all have to deal with jerks who just want to hate for no real reason.

Thanks guys, I'm a big fan.

Natalie said...

I really love your blog. It brightens up my gloomy, bad days. I love your blog header too!!! Can you tell me what fonts you used to create it? I would really appreciate it, thanks!

Gina said...

I just found your site this morning during my first cup of coffee. What a wake up call :) Nothing better than a good laugh to start the day! Thanks so much!

Gina

wordsforworms said...

I LOVE this!!! If my blog ever gets popular enough to get hate mail, I know where I'm coming to post it!

Blueroombuzzings said...

What a great idea, I love it! Thanks <3

Heather said...

This is great! It's so sad, but sometimes (way too often) I'm afraid to post on my blog because of potential poisonous comments. Afraid no more!

One of Many Jens said...

I am so loving this! I haven't had any hate mail yet, but you never know. This is a great idea! Also, I love Viv says. Too funny!
