Open Letter to Two of Our Critics
Blogazdein’s Head and Retro, as you can see, I have been at my son’s graduation and did not have time to respond to your criticisms posted on the Vent Page. I have time now.
Those of us who blog get a daily report of how many people look in on us. Over the years, it has been pretty steady. The number has not gone down recently.
By now you have heard from some of the people whose names you listed. Basically, they say they have not gone anywhere. However, they have wearied of jousting with people who are not worth it. They are resting.
Going down the list you made: Honest Debate has been gone for years. I had hoped he would be a co-administrator, but he was very busy. One thing I hope though, is that he was not upset when I missed his music gig here in Boone. It was one of those fiercely cold Boone nights and so I missed his performance. He did leave the blog right after that.
Liberal POV has been good riddance, although his inane comments do appear occasionally under other names. As to New Guy, I have never understood why we lost him. He never really explained. I do know that many local officials are his close friends. That was what made him so valuable as he had access to the local scene, equal to JW on the other side. I know he was bothered being associated with a blog where the commenters were dissing his friends. Also, he was uncomfortable with my attacks on Soucek.
As to Jack, I don’t know. On the other hand I do predict that Happily Married will be back, especially if the topic of LGBT arises.
Sarkazein, I have asked to keep his cards and letters coming and never worry about it being too much. I really treasure him.
Anyway, thanks for caring.
