Explaination

It appears I may or may not have inadvertantly been the one who violated Annie's rules. The thread which was removed included 2 items which I posted which may or may not have contained info. The first was a posting of my own complaint to typepad. The second was a response to someone who asked, and I'll paraphrase, "why is so and so out for me"? I googled the name and posted the facebook link that came up. I think that may have been the issue. And, although I don't know if that is the case, and I sent a note of apology to Annie. I have received no response. Therefore, I can only assume it was I who may have inadvertantly posted something with no malicious intent. On the contrary, I thought someone actually had been gunning for one of us and I provided the "google link". I did not post the name, or any other info, but I posted the link to the name that someone else had already posted.Well it appears that whatever the reason. Whether these 2 possibilities were in fact a violation, or if it something else I have done, or if it is all in my mind I can not say. I have not heard back from Annie, so I can only assume she feels I maliciously posted something that I am completely unaware of.This site (here)I had previously set up well prior to Annie moving the typepad site. I did not use it before because it is linked with another blog concerning my condo politics and I did not want that info to cross. The imminent election and typepad woes, along with being left at the alter as far as posting on Annie's convinced me to activate this site as a backup.I have no desire to overstay my welcome nor do I wish to compete with her site.Therefore, I will recuse myself from any further blogging.

I envisioned you coming back as a leftest, socialist, commie pig.....

I hate to say it, but while not seeing the offending posts, we have always been somewhat more democratic at Annie's at issues like this. I remember the whole SCROTUM incident some time ago and Annie asked us all how we felt. As of now, Annie has not been able to send me the invite to post there so this is all I have personally. She says that she has sent it and I have no reason to doubt her but for whatever reason I am not a guest author there as of yet.

BOW/Missy and Gang - if you're dropping this one - stop by http://www.moonbattery.com/

Van doesn't do "guest authors" but it's still a lot of fun there. I probably post at least as much if not more there than at Annie's; it's got a more "diverse" crowd with lots of trolls to call names.

IMHO I think you were dissed big time. You said you sent her a message and you were snubbed.
For what it may be worth the thread you are talking about went something like this... ******** asked "who is XXXXXXXXX and what does she have against me?" I guess you answered the question like you said.

It's a shame to lose you over something so silly. I never saw you give up so easily. I remember you giving JR a hard time.

Maybe it's over something else. Did you knock her up?

The road to hell is paved with many good intentions.

Missy, at least BOW can take a hint

this reminds of the time when Kim and Her Friends Explain It All vanished. It was a weird time.

Send Lemmiwinks on a gerbil journey

Ron said...

I believe he said he made several attempts to reach out to her with no reply.

First Poots, now Bill's missing? Could they be together? I sense skullduggery afoot here.

Actually, i agree with Missy. We've all said stupid things here (with me usually near the top of the list) from time to time, but i doubt very much that it has anything to do with being malicious on anyones part. Maybe i'm wrong, but i think all the members of our group should know what's going on, especially since it seems to be effecting our time together. Speaking for my self, if i can help in any way, feel free to ask.

I also sent Annie (2) guest author requests for the new sight. She responded the 2nd time and said she sent me the invitation, but i never received it. Personally, i'm getting very confused going back and forth between all these new sights.

Jimbo said...

I never sed anyting stoopid.

:-)

Okay maybe once.


A day.

Missy said...

I never thought I said anything stoopid until BOW told me I did. =)

Spider said...

So, does anyone know where things stand? Do we not use the original Annie's site any more? Is this our new place? I think someone should be good enough to give us an explanation.

Missy said...

well spidey i think if we want to post this is it for us .. Annie seems to have cut off us Northeasterners.

Spider said...

Why would she do that? Maybe she ran off with Poots? Poor woman.

Hi guys,

Haven't been around in FOREVER, and I sort of signed up -- because it was Bill :) -- before I had ANY idea what this site was about.

Isn't Annie involved in financial planning, or am I crazy? Methinks she would be busier than a long-tailed cat in a roomful of rocking chairs in a financial crisis like this one. Maybe she's just running full-speed and exhausted?

Cheers,

Laurie
