Today I got a rather disturbing email from someone saying that somewhere on my site was pointing to a specific product that is sold for people with bipolar that is no good. I don’t want to mention it’s name but I HATE this product. I have banned all ads of this product on my site.
If you haven’t noticed, I have google ads on my site. Google.com is a search engine and you can list ads on your site to make some extra money. I do this to help support my site so I don’t go broke.
Sometimes these people, who I think are con artists, slip ads for this product through and my team catches them and bans the offending ads. If you EVER see something wrong, email me or better yet, call me on the phone and I will look into it ASAP.
Anyway, someone wrote me today about how this ad was somewhere on my site I am pointing to this product. I have no idea where. I have 800 pages on my site.
This person wrote me:
“Over a year ago I thought you were sincere and for real. Now, I think you’re an undiagnosed manic depressive person with a grandiose idea to make money.
Welcome to the club, my man. Now you’re thinking like a manic depressive!!! Rake it in!!”
I have a couple of questions for this person that I have emailed to her as well:
1. Where am I pointing to this site?
2. Why didn’t you call me?
3. Why do you think that I am a “undiagnosed manic depressive person” isn’t that an insult to people who have bipolar? In my mind, it’s like, something bad was done, well let’s call him a manic depressive. Does this mean that bad things are only done by manic depressive people? Of course not! I don’t even have bipolar disorder and this is offensive to me.
4. How am “I thinking like a manic depressive?”
MY BIG QUESTION IS THE FOLLOWING
Why do people who have bipolar disorder, love to say that I have it or that when someone does something wrong it’s because they have bipolar?
Sometimes I have stated a point on a subject. Someone has disagreed and then ended the conversation with, you must be bipolar yourself? It’s really strange. I am not sure if this makes people feel better or what?
This make absolutely no sense to me whatsoever.
What do you think?
