Today I was on MLIA casually reading all the updated ones, when this post caught my eye:
My first thought was ‘awww, that’s so sweet’ and I decided to read the comments to see if she had accepted. Asking people out via MLIA is not new, heck there have even been marriage proposals, so I was not shocked to see this one. I was, however, shocked at the comments. I hadn’t realy paid much attention to the use of full names, I mean, lots of people take ‘newspaper’ class. Lots of people are named ‘Marlys’ and ‘Rob’. It only makes sense that they use full names to avoid confusion. Upon reading the comments, I discovered how outraged the readers really were. They were disgusted at the use of full names, to the point of finding their facebook profiles and messaging them to prove a point. They were, well, abusive towards poor rob. He just wanted to ask out his crush, and instead, got hounded by over a hundred strangers, and some not-so-strangers, friends of Marlys who belittled him, saying he wasn’t good enough for her.
I really want to know your opinion on the subject. Is being asked out over MLIA (or a similar site) cute or lame? Would you be upset if a nerdy/quiet boy from your school posted your full name on a random website for the whole world to see/stalk? If you were Marlys, what would YOU say?
