(This post is in reference to this.)
I would probably have communicated with you in some way, but food for thought:
That feeling you think you would have had if W:PS disappeared totally from ME with no warning?
I had that years ago when you moved all your blogging and posting off ME and onto DC.
I’m basically holding a grudge against you for it, except that every time I look at my website and every time I click a link to read a post you made and every time I look at your site, I am reminded that it’s not so much a grudge as a continually ongoing offense. Same with Zoe and Marie; it’s not just you.
So the fact that I built a site intended to be a “community” site for me and my friends to post on that now every single one of my friends has forsaken for their own (or totally faceless sites run by people they don’t know) is a constant thorn in my side. And if/when each/any of your sites stops being interesting or starts polluting my site (a la Iain’s spam comments, which you may note no longer appear on ME) that’s just too much, you’re gone.
Sorry if that upsets you. You’ll always be welcome to post ON MODERN EVIL if you so choose, just let me know. It’s all this goddamned posting in other places and feeling like you’re owed the right to appear here anyway. It’s a privelidge, something I spent dozens of hours programming into my site, not the normal order of things or a natural right.
Gha. At this point I hardly care. Look at the front page. It’s a disgrace. One, maybe two posts a day actually ON Modern Evil, most of them ME24. What’s the point? The site nearly boils down to an easy set of links to posts my friends made so I can keep up with their blogs. Which, if you consider to be the case, means that if I lose interest in reading a blog (becuase 7/8 of the posts are not worth reading, for example) it has no place on my “personal set of links”. And anyone who thinks differently can refer themselves to the name of this blog.
