“Please turn me into a werewolf!” This is something I read quite often in the comments left on the site. Now, before I continue I want to make it perfectly clear that this is by no means an insult to those that wish to become werewolves. I can understand your reasons for wishing it, so like I said, this isn’t an insult.
But, I do have issues with that popular comment. Here is the thing, someone says that they are a werewolf and many of our readers believe them. People lie online a lot, and I mean a lot. I can lie very easily here and say something like, “hey guys, I’m an elf!” or something small like, “I just dyed my hair red.” See how easy that is? That 16-year-old werewolf you have made friends with could very well be a 40-year-old sexual predator. You never know, but you should always keep that in mind.
This is not me assuming you are morons, of course not. But I have seen some of our readers post their actual home addresses in a comment so that the “real werewolf” can come over and bite them. This is incredibly stupid and very dangerous. Every time I see one of those comments I am absolutely shocked and instantly scramble to delete it. Please understand that we are very welcoming to everyone on this site and we love our readers. So of course your safety is considered very important to us.
And yes, someone claiming to be a werewolf could actually be a lost and lonely werewolf, but either way we beg for you to be safe and smart. Before you get too serious, pleasepleaseplease stop and think long and hard about what that person is saying. Do your own research on the subject, not Twilight, not Underworld, but real deep research. Check out all of the facts – knowledge is power. There have been times when I have proved someone was lying by simply picking up a book and doing some quick research and seeing that all of their “facts” were very wrong.
Something else that is a problem is when someone copies and pastes the same comment over and over and over, “PLEASE BITE ME, I WANNA BE A WEREWOLF!!!!” You are more than welcome to leave that comment, but I have seen people posting it over ten times and do you know what I do? I go through and delete each comment except for one. I don’t like spamming and posting over and over won’t help your chances becoming a werewolf. Actually, if I were a wolf and saw that I’d be like, “man, fuck that!” and move on.
So overall I am begging you to all be safe and smart. Please do not believe everything someone writes. Please do not post your home address or your e-mail address in a comment because it will be deleted. Please no spam. And once again, please do not consider this an insult. I adore all of our readers – the furry ones and the hairless ones.
Hugs all around!
