Why are some people so nasty?

You have read how I've gone on and on singing Michy's (Michelle L. Devon) praises. It may even appear a little silly, like I have some kind of girl crush on her, but she has just helped me so much, out of the goodness of her heart, that it's ridiculous. I'm beyond grateful. Most people who know her know she is one of the kindest, most generous people you will ever meet.

However, there is a small faction of people who, for some unexplained reason, have some kind of personal issue with her. One such person, who blogs as "Amy Lynn", has somehow concocted this vast conspiracy between Associated Content and Michy, claiming Michy's some kind of AC pet, getting all kinds of special treatment, etc. Amy Lynn is saying some horribly vicious things about Michy and calling her horrible names, all because of this supposed conspiracy.

Amy Lynn is really just ridiculous. If Michy gets higher offers on her content at AC, it's because she's a high performer--her page view average is over 2000, and if you take out her poetry it's almost double. Why wouldn't she get higher offers? Beyond that, with all the free advice she gives on the AC forums, how can you hold that against her?

Amy accuses Michy of "prostituting" herself on the internet. Amy, let me give you a little life lesson. Adults have to have jobs to pay their bills. Some adults have their own businesses, offering services for hire. Michy runs Accentuate Services. In order to get customers, you do something called "promotion" or "advertising". This is not to be confused with "prostitution". Does McDonald's prostitute itself?

Amy Lynn, get a life. Stop attacking someone who spends more time helping others than anyone I know, just because you don't understand how Associated Content works.

Michelle L. Devon, keep on doing what you're doing. You know how many of us love you, so please keep reminding yourself of that!
