Responding to your Comments (Especially the Bad Ones): Part 1
Here at CollegeCandy, we’re used to getting a wide range of feedback on all of our content. While we appreciate all of your comments, tweets, and “likes,” we also get a kick out of people who post anonymous offensive comments for no reason. Some of these anon messages inquired about the mental health of our authors and attacked our personal beliefs, so I thought it was finally time to respond to these mysterious readers and give them the spotlight they deserve!
Weirdly enough, I was feeling a little troubled in my career a few days ago, so I took this person’s advice and tried my best to find a therapist who specializes in sarcastic bloggers who write most articles for the sake of creating hype and discussion. Yeah, I couldn’t find anyone. Sorry!
Whenever we write anything related to body types or body image, eating disorders almost always become part of the discussion. To the anonymous commenter above, I hope “this sh*t” doesn’t refer to the article. If it does, I encourage you to check out one of our posts completely dedicated to yummy foods we’d eat all day if we could (like this one that will teach you how to make chicken and gnocchi soup- yum!).
This comment contains three things I think we ALL say at least once a day, every day: “Phenomenal!”, “What’s with Ryan Seacrest?”, and “Shut up Taylor, you sound like a dying cat.” I know this post is supposed to be dedicated to our most offensive comments, but this comment was too amazing to not get featured.
If all the people who found those ridiculous tattoos and the disturbing fan art to be creepy killed themselves, the world’s population would decrease by like… 75%. Just sayin’.
Yes. I am one of those girls that drink frappes, and you know what? I’m proud of it. Frappe-drinking girls all around the world have been discriminated against for years and I think it’s time to take a stand. I’m gonna buy my frappe, drink my frappe and then probably buy another one tomorrow. Got a problem with that? Hmph.
Here at College Candy, we LOVE pictures. As a matter of fact, most of our posts consist of multiple pictures that require no download to view. I’m gonna take a wild guess and say that if you computer is forcing you to download something before viewing our site, you already have a virus. Might wanna get that checked out.
Normally I would just scroll past and ignore girls who feel the need to point out every little mistake in a post, but wait… there are hot guys reading, commenting and defending posts on College Candy?! Ladies, do your duty and go thumbs-up his comment. *drool*
While I appreciate the gesture, if you’re telling me to go die, you’re not being very nice.
You love girls “mostly” because you’re not gay? So, besides that, there’s no other reason why you like girls? Dude, if I was you, I’d probably just join the other team at this point.
“ANOTHER witless article!” Oh no! I knew there were a few posts lacking wit here on the site, but I didn’t know it was a flat-out epidemic! Thank you, anonymous commenter, for bringing this issue to our attention. I “personally do not like” you very much.
You know what we’re also good for? Burning your clothes, poisoning your food and using our teeth.
If we only hired extremely polite, extremely smart, and mature bloggers, do you know how boring this site would be? We’d end up posting things like “8 Ways to Increase your Fiber Intake.” I don’t think you want that.

“Spoiled little princess?” I grew up in the STREETS… of suburban Massachusetts. Awkward…
You know what? In addition to Frappe Girl Pride Day, I’m declaring today as Spoiled Princess Pride Day. Who’s with me?
I don’t know how this comment ended up on a post about prom dresses, but to whoever wrote this: if we somehow insulted people with Asperger’s in the article, we genuinely didn’t mean to. We only meant to insult the designers who would have the nerve to try to convince vulnerable 16-year-olds to wear their tacky dresses.
Yes, anonymous commenter, the post you commented on (and almost every post here on College Candy) is meant for entertainment purposes only- a “joke-” including this post.
