Commenting Policy

A recent influx of trolls has prompted an update, PLEASE READ BEFORE YOU COMMENT.

By commenting here you agree to the following:

  • You are at least 18 years old.
  • If you are a troll (which you agree is up to my sole determination) then you will not be given the privacy I believe all readers should have and you agree that your full name, ip, location, family information, and any other information I obtain about you will be made public on this site or any other I choose.  Nothing I learn about you will be sacred and it will all be published.
  • This policy may be changed at any time and you agree to comply with those changes.

Here’s the deal, this site is for making fun of and dissing on Pioneer Woman.  Period. It’s part satire, part parody, part review, and part drunken ramblings. If you want to express your undying love for her and slam me a time or two, that’s cool.  I’m down with that.  But after that?  Nah, enough.  The purpose of the site is to bitch about her, not argue with idiots like you.

THINK before you comment here.  Trolls will  not be tolerated and I get really pissed off when I have to spend extra time dealing with them.  Don’t do it.

If you don’t know what a troll is then I suggest you figure it out BEFORE you post here.  This definition from Wikipedia may help:

In Internet slang, a troll is someone who posts inflammatory,[2] extraneous, or off-topic messages in an online community, such as an online discussion forum, chat room, or blog, with the primary intent of provoking readers into an emotional response[3] or of otherwise disrupting normal on-topic discussion.[4]

Please keep in mind that I have already been told and called all of this:

  • I’m pathetic, jealous, evil, satan, corrupt, awful, terrible, horrible, the world’s worst mother, a hateful person, bullying, trolling, spiteful, mean, cruel, existing only because of Ree, will die if Ree shuts down, am exactly like Ree (? I didn’t get that one), am a chickenshit if I don’t publish your comment
  • I’m a troll, troll on steroids, cyberbully, stalker, fat cow, lazy, right-wing hypocrite, left-wing nutjob, tree-hugger, clueless idiot, asshole
  • That I obviously know nothing about farming, ranching, cattle, calves, horses, children, dogs, cooking, reading, entertainment, country living, county roads, hats, “the way things are done in Oklahoma”, how to ride a horse, children’s safety, photography

I’m aware that there are issues of global importance happening RIGHT NOW that deserve all our attention.  I’m aware that there are murderers going free, starving children, women without rights, terrible elected officials, and all that jazz.  I understand that thousands, perhaps millions, of people have raised their children just like the Drummonds and they are the most upstanding members of society.  Not only that, but I realize that you and your entire family as well as every single one of your friends have met Ree Drummond and she is nothing but kind, gracious, humble, and the sweetest person ever.  You and all those others have also made every one of her recipes and each one turned out to be the most delicious thing ever to be eating at any time in the entire universe.

I’m also aware that you don’t much care for Ree and aren’t a fan of hers but you just want to tell me a few things, offer suggestions, explain why you’ll never return, and get me to understand.  I’m VERY aware that you stumbled onto my site quite by accident and are horrified to realize there are “people like me” living in society and hanging out on the internet.

So if your comment is resembling pretty much any of what I just wrote, then it probably won’t get published nor will I acknowledge it.  For nearly two years I haven’t moderated comments and I haven’t controlled the conversation on this blog in any way.  I had deleted less than five comments in all that time.  That changed recently with the arrival of my very first trolls.  I’ve had to turn on comment moderation and spend extra time dealing with people who can’t seem to read and I hate, HATE, wasting my time because of them.  I used to publish their comments with an “edited by pwsux” in them so they would realize I wasn’t going to post their crap, but then they just got worse.

I will no longer give comments like that any respect at all and I have no problem telling everyone that right up front.  It is NO SECRET that, going forward, I will delete troll comments.  And yes, I am aware that Ree (or her “reputation monitoring” PR firm) controls the conversation at her site and moderates heavily.  I have no problem with her, or any other blogger doing that, I’m just of the opinion that it should be made clear to the readers and so that’s what I’ve done here.

There, that covers about everything I can think of at the moment but believe me, I’ll update this in a nanosecond if I see fit.

FYI, you are a bitch and she can sue you up and down for deflamation and using her photos.

Here’s to you getting your ass sued in court.

– a lawyer for the past 30 years.

PWSux July 15, 2011 at 1:45 pm

Ha ha ho hee hee ha ha ha! OMG you’re cracking me up.

It’s defamation honey. D E F A M A T I O N

Can you please show me where I used her photos? You can show me where I LINKED to her photos. You can show me MY photos of a screen shot with other shit in it of her photos. And you can show me where I copied an entire POST of hers, giving her credit AS WELL AS linking back to it. And I can show you HUNDREDS of sites that have done the same. I can also show you HUNDREDS of sites that actually USED her photos.

Bring it.

Mee Mee July 15, 2011 at 2:13 pm

I guess it begs the question….can you defame* a character? I think we are all in agreement that a large portion of PW is a character created to make a lot of money from people who could never hope to rise to the economic stature of PW (even before she started blogging).

I noticed that you say you have been a lawyer for 30 years. Wow! With all your extensive research, thorough presentation of the facts and dispassionate argument I am absolutely convinced you are an attorney of merit!

*I’m not going to even get into defLamation of character (my spell check doesn’t even recognize the word).

– Not a lawyer but calls BS when she sees it and does at least SOME research (albeit half assed most the time) before she opens her big mouth.

Natalie W July 16, 2011 at 1:03 am

Hey Coraline, didn’t you just do the same thing by calling PWSux a bitch? You really should go back and read the “D” section of the dictionary ya bitch.

Penny July 20, 2011 at 8:30 pm

Bet you did reallly well in law school…lol…deflamation!!

Debbie July 15, 2011 at 1:17 pm

Hi Coraline, so nice to see you here! You have a voice here, even if it’s a dissenting opinion.

Now do us, and yourself, a huge favor and go over to PW’s site. There yet? Good. Now try and post a comment like the one you posted here.

We’ll wait.

*picks toes*

*stares at holes in yoga pants*

*gazes at navel*

Ready? Good.

Sit back, relax, and hit refresh a lot. Now tell me: how long did it take for her to delete your comment? Seconds? Minutes?

We’ll see you later, Coraline. People like you always come back. Always.

Natalie W July 16, 2011 at 12:59 am

Thanks Debbie. Your comment was priceless!

Sandra July 15, 2011 at 10:12 pm

You know, I’ve been reading her site for awhile, and, while I enjoy it, I always wondered why, after she said she and her family preferred corn fed beef to grass fed, nobody had written to say that grass fed beef is far better nutrient and ecologically-wise. I always wondered, but, now, I don’t wonder. Amazing. I’m sure anyone who questioned their way of raising cattle would have been deleted all the way off the comment section.

Someone named Chris wrote this comment on her Dr. Pepper Pulled Pork recipe. It’s still there: #324

“Dee – being such a foodie and in a rural area where local food is available (presumably), I’m surprised you don’t source fresh local meat for your recipes. I’m sure you know more about this than most people since your husband is in the industry, but my impression is that Hormel is one of the nasty factory farm/slaughter houses. I’m hardly an activist, but I’m still surprised that there’s not much mention of the benefits of the fresh/local/organic food movement on PW. Consider taking a page from Mark Bitman’s recent articles and in your posts and articles maybe toss in a little bit of info here and there about sourcing quality food and why it’s worthwhile for your readers’ health and for the environment. That can definitely be done without being preachy or turning readers off, in fact, I think people are really interested to learn about where their food is coming from and what they’re putting on their kids’ plates!
That said, this looks like another great recipe I’d like to try out, thanks!”

Indy Gal July 16, 2011 at 2:19 am

Drat — posted too soon. I considered leaving a response to that, but decided that my response might get both deleted. That one might still be there because it’s about pork, not beef.

Paula S. July 16, 2011 at 2:44 am

I believe this is the only website I have seen where a fight broke out on the page giving the rules for comments. Ree let another flying monkey loose. PWS needs to have the place sprayed.

Penny July 20, 2011 at 8:35 pm

Right you are Paula…..she’s busy being famous and making craptastic fruit cocktail Crappa Crappa Crappa Cakes! Maybe she needs to take some of them millions and hire her a flying monkey wrangler!

KP July 28, 2011 at 1:30 pm

PWSux…I love you!!! You are my HERO!!!!! Keep on keeping on sister!

Toni Naranjo August 4, 2011 at 6:34 pm

I am very new to following blogs. Found PW because she was on a top 10. Accidently stumbled accross you, cause I guess..$ = hits. And you payed for your ranking.

My question is?… Why in the the world would you spend so much time, energy, etc, HATING on a BLOG? I don’t see the any intentional hatred directed at anyone from her site, and if people enjoy it, and it has led to a lucrative business…so what? You are obviously pretty sharp, so why be so negative and hateful when I’m sure something you did ORIGINAL would be something that would be a blast to follow, without all the negativity.

So many of us are so overwhelmed with financial problems, spouses that are deployed, LIFE, a little positive with beautiful pictures and a basic love of the little things, like kids, etc. can give us the 2 minute break that is all we have time for, and are grateful for too.

P.S. My husbands nickname was Flea. He is deceased, know the e-mail address sounds weird, but no worries, please feel free to trash it in advance.

Toni Naranjo August 4, 2011 at 6:57 pm

Me again, as I said before, I’m new to this.

The P.S. was referring to my e-mail address, which was required, fleawife is my e-mail tag.

AnneMaReeDee August 4, 2011 at 7:21 pm

If you ‘accidentally’ stumbled across pioneerwomansux.com in the Google free listings, there is no way that PWS paid for her ranking. Trust me, I’m in the business and if anyone promises you that you can pay for ranking in Google they are liars out to take your money.

I would much rather take a two minute break with all of the great people here on PWS – they are keeping it real, as opposed to bankrolling a fantasy so many are duped to believe.

Paula S. August 4, 2011 at 8:24 pm

Most people on here have problems in their real lives also. This website is something we enjoy, because we enjoy truth, and because we enjoy each other. I’m sorry for your troubles, but feel free to go deal with them if you don’t want to play here. Personally, I like playmates who are intelligent enough to sift through the bull crap.

PWSux August 4, 2011 at 8:33 pm

I have no idea what you’re talking about regarding paying for ranking – as far as I know, that’s impossible to do.

I’ve answered your questions here http://www.thepioneerwomansux.com/first-time/ and here http://www.thepioneerwomansux.com/2011/04/monetizing-the-hate/

After you’ve read all of that and you still have questions about my “hating blog” then I’ll be glad to speak with you. Again.

D'OH! August 4, 2011 at 9:13 pm

PWS – I promise to stop googling “the pioneer woman sux” every.single.time I visit your site. As it seems to be driving your famousness to amazing levels.
Sorry.

Toni – my life is so *%#$ed up Dr Phil could turn me into a mini series. I came to this site, I read ,I laughed, I stayed. I totally enjoy the banter, humour and wit of the site and the commenters.

Good luck fixing your life.
Now go forth forget that us “haters” exsist and shelter over yonder on the prairie of unicorns, rainbows, chaps, bassets, and bad recipes.
enjoy…

Dana August 11, 2011 at 1:33 pm

I had a quick question. I stumbled across this website similar to other ppl—on the way to PW site. I am not a PW lover, I honestly could not care less about the chick per se. I like to find new cooking blogs for meal ideas. Ok a lot of intro for a simple inquiry. Are her recipes any good? I mean with the exception of that Krispy Kreme monstrosity, do they produce good food? Because quite frankly that is all I care about. Lastly, this site is pretty funny. I probably will come back when I want a cynical laugh here or there. I would assume that is the intention so I don’t get the passionate insults thrown all over the place.

Kait August 11, 2011 at 2:12 pm

The majority of her recipes are hacked off other sites or old recipe books from the 70’s & 80’s. She usually changes things in the recipe to try to make it her own. The only trouble is, she has no idea what she is doing. She takes out things that need to be there and replaces most of them with butter. We are not kidding. If you want good recipes there a bazillion better places on the web to visit.

Paula S. August 11, 2011 at 2:23 pm

Her recipes are risky. Most of us have had failures with her recipes, or have had to adjust them.
