When a viral post brings 100s of haters

Over a year ago I wrote a post ‘20 signs you are from Estonia‘ back on my old blog which went viral. The blog was translated to Estonian and posted on delfi.ee, where hundreds of people decided to comment on the context.

When I moved my blog, I moved the content over. Somehow it went viral a couple of days ago yet again – out of my control. It was translated to both Estonian and Russian and posted on postimees.ee

The post was for fun, having a laugh at the biggest stereotypes and originally was addressed at people who come from Estonia but no longer live there.

So many comments were focusing at their scores which were followed by remarks such as ‘I guess I’m not from Estonia then!’.

If people lack sense of humour and don’t understand sarcasm,there is nothing I can do about it. 🙂

There were, however many hateful comments:

Why do people feel the need to offend an author on a satiric blog post? Why bring up a difficult topic of ethnical Russians born in Estonia?

What kind of people are they? Sad.

Chill the hell out and get a life.

  1. Unfortunately the internet is a breeding ground, a cesspool — if you will — for those types. Anonymity? Check. Freedom to say whatever they want? Check. It sucks. These same people would never behave like that in real life. They are miserable folks. Keep your head up! But then again, I can see that you have a positive attitude!
