As you all know, I write for suite101.com. My articles range anywhere from writing all the way to reviewing movies. My recent article was a review on the Nick TV show, Big Time Rush (BTR). Since my son is now a toddler, we’ve been watching Nickelodeon quite a bit of late. I saw the snippets of BTR’s videos weeks before I saw an actual show and fell in love with their music. The guys are all so cute, and their music is so catchy. I even bought 2 of their songs from i-tunes. I felt it was the perfect thing to write about. OK, so I don’t enjoy their show as much as their songs, but I still watch and mostly enjoy it.
Anyway, the point of this blog. I gave my honest opinion on what I thought of the show and compared it to two other Nick shows. This commenter is obviously a girl and most likely around 12 years old (give or take a year), and she is obviously in love with BTR. Following is her comment followed by a link to my review:
This article is a lie. When Big Time Concert airs, the ratings are going to kick iCarly’s and Victorious’s butts! 1) The music is catchy. 2) The episodes have a REASON for showing unlike this episode of iCarly, which had no reason at all. Example – iGot a Hot Room (iCarly) who cares if Carly gets her dream room? 3) Gustavo and Bitters are amazing! How dare you say they act immature! iCarly is getting boring in the 4th season, and I guess Victorious is okay, but you have no right to say that Big Time Rush should be the last one. They should be the first favorite show or second, not iCarly and Victorious….god. And it wouldn’t have to be that order of ranking the show! As much as you hate BTR (it sounds like you hate BTR!) it doesn’t matter – it is going to get more and more popular in the second season, and even with your lying articles, it isn’t going to change anything for the ratings. God I hope this article gets replaced by a eligible article saying actual GOOD things about BTR, ’cause this article is obviously horrible.

I normally delete comments that are insulting, but this was too humorous to let go. I also wanted to respond to it, which was another reason I couldn’t delete it. Of course, if she comes back and posts again, I will be deleting any further remarks.
What I find most amusing is her passion, which she clearly feels with the use of God (twice). I can just visualize her stomping her little feet and gritting her teeth (probably in braces) as she typed that out, can’t you?
Well, here’s a bit of insight, young lady. I (not you) write for suite101.com, and no one will be replacing my articles with ones that fit your definition of good and truthful. If you want to live your life with your head in the sand and think only your opinion counts, you have a rough road ahead of you.
The thing is I didn’t really say anything that negative about BTR. I only have good things to say and write about them. I just expressed my displeasure with parts of their show. I love a lot of TV shows, but I don’t always enjoy every aspect of every show. That is part of life. Get used to it!
One last thing. My son is only a toddler, but it will be a cold day in hades before I ever let him leave a comment like that. He will learn to respect his elders. This girl’s parents obviously do not keep a close enough watch on what their kid does online.
