On Passive Aggressive Comments: Srsly, Great for Laffs!
In which The Gay Recluse seeks to vex.
Oh noes! It seems that we’ve upset Reader Arundel with our obsessive-compulsive need to repeat the same or similar photographic images over and over! Here’s what Arundel wrote:
Hi. I forget where I first came across your blog, but I enjoy your posts and insights.
However, this strange thing of repeating the same picture fifteen times in a post is a damned eyesore, an affectation that beats the casual reader over the head with the same repeated image in such a distracting way it’s impossible to concentrate on what you’re saying.
Repeating the same photo over and over implies there’s some importance to the image- believe me, once is enough. We’re not stupid. Repeating it so pointlessly is irksome.
I hope you keep writing insightful things. But readers have to work to find them between the same goddamn picture, breaking up the text for no reason.
Best to you.
Umm, well, ha ha, thank you for reading and sending in that lovely comment, Arundel. We hope you’ll write more, because it’s great for laffs! And srsly, this post is just for you, because it only has one picture (albeit from the archives!). Best to you, too.
