So, how about them Yankees?
You’re not expecting me to talk about the shit hitting the fan tonight, are you?
Hey, I just made my peace. And I gave my word I was staying out of it.
On second thought… FUCK IT! I’m hearing a lot of lies and PR damage-control at Blogshares, and I’m sick of it.
Here is a copy of the page where my friends and I are CRUCIFIED at Blogshares. (I suspected my comment was going to be deleted, so I saved the page.) Maria was run off the web, because of me. She defended a friend, and he sicced trolls on all of us.
Sayed has no control over over the trolls??? BULLSHIT!
He has my name in big-ass letters, my URL on it and singles out every one commenting on my site as “nazis” and “doting supporters”. One of them was Maria, who didn’t agree with my remark, but said my frustration with the game “echoed her sentiment too”.
The very first response was one of his asshole friends suggesting “Perhaps blogs that link to him should suffer horrendous losses too.”
This forum thread went on to two pages, several friends joined Kat in asking to be delisted over this bullshit… including Maria. They had to leave their URL (on top of a beating FROM all the commenters) and they were ALL HIT BY TROLLS ON THEIR SITE IMMEDIATELY.
Yes I apologized to Sayed for calling him what did in the post below, and I STILL mean every word of it. Why didn’t I apologize sooner? exhibit B: “People aren’t dropping out of blogshares to defend what I said (even I admit it was shitty, and I would have apologized had he not posted this slanderous garbage.) ”
I admit right then and there…what I said was WRONG! And I was even ready to apologize that day.
Yet we were all crucified for the next two weeks, especially Maria. He used a widely-read forum to slap me down and single me out because I made a remark that hurt him and he wanted to make an example out of anyone that crosses him. He disabled the posting after so many people protested. He’d rather shut them up than admit he might have gone a “little” overboard.
Why can’t he just do the right thing, and simply take responsibility for creating a situation where anyone opposing him was going to be left wide open for attacks on their sites??? He riles up a mob, and then demands all their URLs are posted for him to delist… then they go attack. What was he expecting?
I said something stupid and regrettable, he sicced a mob on everyone here. Two wrongs don’t make a right, I know this…. but at least I took RESPONSIBILITY for my part in this mess. Why can’t he? Instead of playing martyr on his page and pretend he doesn’t understand why everyone is mad at him for the troll attacks. It’s takes two, folks.
“We’ve both publicly apologised and I’ve accepted his apology and he’s accepted mine. ” – WHAT???? WHERE WAS MY APOLOGY??? This is the second time I had apologized via email, 30 freakin times on the web. It took three emails today (the first one was unbelievably hostile & arrogant). Never an apology for this. Never an apology to anyone of my friends for being called a “nazi”, or a “doting supporter” (unless you count “I realize I shouldn’t have said what I said, so I take it back”… I had to FUCKING GROVEL today in the hopes he’d call off trolls and leave Maria alone.)
Maria has stood up for me through thick and thin. Is one of the most wonderful people I have ever met… and this is the price she paid for being friends with a loudmouth like me. Keeping my silence for the sake of peace would be stabbing her in the back.
Torture me for HAVING a big mouth. I don’t care. I deserved it.
She didn’t deserve this. She really didn’t.
How can anyone support this kind of abuse? Tell me.
