It didn't take any guessing on my part to know who you are

Before I get to the reason why I'm posting, I want to make it clear that the lyrics below were by The Band, not me. I guess I just assume others have heard a lot of the songs I have.

Ok, so one of our number has been forced to hang up her spikes, as it were. Caused to do so by a fellow blogger. I feel a need to respond. And in a much less polite way than GotB is used to doing.

Fucker, I knew who you were as soon as I read the post. If you ever wondered why I didn't link you its because I knew you had a fucking screw loose.

Remember what I said in my last post about the internet as a forum? People like you ruin it for the rest of us.

We all open up a window to our own lives (at varying degrees) here, sharing our experiences with one another under the condition that there exists a line. Of course, everyone draws their line at a different place, but it's not too fucking hard to figure it out. And in case that's too nuanced for you, ERR ON THE SIDE OF NOT BEING A FUCKING STALKER, ASSHOLE. This isn't complicated.

A note: Yes, I've given my last name. Don't think that means I want you to come searching for me.


  1. Wombat... you are not afraid to speak your mind, that is for sure... :) I shall return... I promise! ;) You'll be one of the first to know...

    "There were times when I thought I couldn't last for long, But Now I think I'm able to carry on, It's been a long, been a long time coming, But I know a change is gonna come, oh yes it will"

  2. Oh tonight was kind of a early night to call the karaoke thing quits... had to get back to my son... but I did do a little karaoking... and could have sworn you were there... LOL!!! :)

  3. Like music to my ears.

    Oh wait...

    *ponders making a joke about you seeing me at karaoke* No, too soon. :P

    Ok, so I guess I might as well have said it. Whatever. Hope you had both an awesome time at karaoke and at home with your kid.

  4. Yip, I seen em around and it defintely isnta pleasure.

  5. It is unfortunate that this occured. I hope gotb comes back soon. No one should feel threatened and have to stop blogging.
    Having been stalked once online and once in an online and in real life fashion I know it is not a pleasant thing. Lines are crossed at the point where one looks for information that is not freely given. Not knowing where these lines are is not a good thing.

  6. You don't mince words, do you? You're right, your post on it was a lot more blistering than mine.

    That's OK. The idiot deserves it.

  7. I think you said what we've all been thinking...

  8. Good to call the asshole on it. I once posted a letter on Salon.com about the environment of all things and got a long and freaky email for some weirdo in Pennsylvania. I have been lucky in that he never wrote me again. Being anonymous to the freak, I was pretty shaken and I cannot begin to imagine what I would do if the guy knew who I was and anything about my children or husband...

    So sad GOTB had to go, but I understand...

  9. Thanks for backing me up people. I have to admit I feel a bit uneasy whenever I post something like this, even in a case like this where I believe it to be undoubtably warranted.
