Wife Baiting?

In the post that Sarah of That’s Not Very Nice wrote welcoming Ktreva to the Blogosphere, I left the comment telling her to “Stop wife baiting”. She bugged me to tell her what wife baiting was. Since I am a surly arsehole I refused to tell her. She took it upon herself to try to figure out what it was and tried on three different posts to continue the wife baiting. Unfortunately she didn’t have it right.

Most of us know what a Troll is. Those nasty commenters that come to a blog for no other reason than to leave nasty and snarky comments trying to get a response from the blogger and their regular commenters.

Troll baiting is when you post something or make a comment that the whole purpose is to get a response from a Troll.

Wife Baiting, which is much duller than it sounds, is when someone does something to encourage a wife to continue doing something to the husbands chagrin.

Sarah had encouraged Ktreva to continue blogging, thus giving me less computer time. She was wife baiting. Unfortunately she took it to mean that Wife Baiting is when you do something to get the husband in trouble. Why would I care about that? I get myself in plenty of trouble on my own, why do you think I have to keep buying Ktreva jewelry.

Sarah, upset at her valiant attempts being flushed down the drain, finally resulted in the most loathsome of all activities. She posted a comment on her own blog under the guise of it coming from me. For shame Sarah, for shame…

I do have to be honest; it was fun egging her on. Especially when she was getting frustrated. I feel sorry for the next blogger she decides to be “not very nice” with.

I'm also starting to wonder if she doesn't have an unhealthy obsession with me. ;)

I was just trying to piss you off. It was fun till your feelings got hurt. Sorry about that, and as I said before, I will stop now.

My dearest Sarah... Have you missed my posts about work? I'm pissed off enough about that. Your posts where entertaining!

Hurt feelings! BAHAHAHAHAHA... I have no feelings. In order to have feelings one has to have a heart.

Well for petes sakes, go to Sharper Image or something and get one then, they still sell human hearts, right?

So, if you misuse the word "then" say, twice in a post, is that considered RM baiting? ;)
