Ok, I was reading a couple of blogs tonight, and one of my biggest online pet peeves reared its ugly head.

For some strange, and likely stupid, reason people feel the need to be the first to comment on a blog. That's all great and wonderful, but when the only thing they say is "FIRST!", it makes them look like a dumbass. Not only that, but if you look at the timestamps from when the post was published to when the first comment was made? Sometimes seconds apart. Obviously, they haven't read the post. Most of the time I'm not sure that they even know what blog they're on, let alone if the post is even comment worthy.

While I realize that I'm still fairly new to the blogging world, I seriously fail to see what the big deal is about being first to comment. Other than seemingly having nothing better to do with your life than try to be the first one to do something, what else did you accomplish by that? Seriously people...if you're going to comment, make it something worthwhile and not just some stupid competition.

By the way, because I know the people that will likely read comments are moderated. Why is that important? Because if you comment with anything like "FIRST" (or any other number for that matter), I will just delete it and move on. Yes, I'm just that much of a dick to do that. :D
