Okay, If It’s War They Want…
Hi Blokesters. I’m still here.
So far so good. The computer feels solid but I’m not holding my breath. I know that I need to get a new system as soon as possible because this one could die on me at a moment’s notice. First off, let me say thank you to everyone who has sent me their best wishes. It never seems to end for me. Health problems, hardware problems, my car was stolen and destroyed … and with a long winter now looming ahead. I look forward to putting 2007 behind me.
I’m going to follow your advice and take a little time off from blogging and get rid of this headache from all the stress and recent events.
Over the years I have freely contributed thousands of hours of my time for the betterment of my fellow bloggers. I have never asked for anything in return except that I receive a level of respect that I believe I have earned.
It never ceases to amaze me how mean spirited the so-called problogger crowd can be with their nasty comments and messages — many being sent “anonymous” of course.
Unlike others, I have never resorted to name calling or other deviant behaviour just because we might happen to disagree. The only thing that I can be accused of is occasionally using satire humour to make my point. But I have never, ever stooped as low as some of my detractors have.
If it sounds like I’m pissed off — you’re absolutely right, and it’s brought out the Irish in me. So it’s time to duck pro-bloggers and you’ve been warned.
I’m planning a new series of articles that will take the pro-blogger gang (hereinafter referred to as the phonies) head on over several issues, some of which I have already raised as well as matters of conflicts of interest etc. These issues affect all of us bloggers. You have a right to know and I promise you it will be enlightening as well as entertaining.
If the phonies don’t happen to like it then all I can say is tough nuggies and get over it. OR if they want a fight then BRING IT ON, but be advised this blog will not allow anonymous trolls who can’t control their primitive urges and try to attack me personally. They will be terminated forthwith with extreme prejudice. At least have the cahunas to show us your face or kindly bugger off.
Any phonies who have the courage to crawl out from beneath the cracks and take me on … be courteous and you will receive courtesy in return. Be a jerk and try to personalize this, the gloves will come off and I promise you it won’t be pretty.
I’m looking forward to it.
P.s.: I have to apologize because I’ve had to turn on comments moderation. I know, I hate it too. But it seems that I have no choice under the circumstances. When you’re under siege like I am sometimes you have no choice but to declare martial law.
