Gut Rumbles

et tu, brute?

Oh, well. I've been massively de-linked by a lot of people. Again.

I don't understand why some of them did it, but it's their choice. YOU run the blog, YOU make the rules. That's life.

That's politics, too, which is why I'll never go to another blog meet.


It's amazing how moronic and childish people can be over the stupidest shit.

Freaking sheeple.

Acidman, if they can't stand the truth, f*** them. This is your house and there is no way I would be foolish to take the smoke out of your mouth and put it in the ashtray. Hell, I would probably bum one off you. I have you linked at my place and you will stay. Unless, of course, you start sounding like the looney left.

Reminds me of high school cliques, they have to out someone every once in while to remind themselves how cool they are. It appears that just because some people are talented writers they are still shit birds as human beings.

Aww, I'm still linking to you darlin'... ;)

You should try coming to a London blog meet - after the first hour or so we can't generally remember what politics are let alone talk about them,and I've yet to encounter any bitchiness or not paying ones way.

Maybe I'm just lucky...

Wtf happened now.. blah.

You won't ever go to another blog meet? Damn. I'd love to have a drink with you some day.

Fuck 'em and feed 'em beans.

Delinking campaigns are a hoot. I can't delink Kos or Atrios, for example, because I've never linked them in the first place - I wouldn't because I only link blogs I enjoy reading. It sort of follows that I'll delink them when I no longer enjoy reading them, but I see no reason to do it with a lot of fanfare.

As for a lot of smaller bloggers delinking a big blogger, I'm not sure what that's going to accomplish other than to reduce the smaller blogger's's certainly not going to affect yours.

As for blogmeets, it's like any other party I guess...there's certain people you go there to see, and others you'd just as soon not see, but put up with because someone else there likes 'em. I'm not going to deprive myself of Velociman's company, for example, because of anyone else's behavior.

I hope you change your mind on the blogmeets, anyhow - I'd like to see you & Catfish both up in Helen.

Blogdog---what if I break into your house and start playing my banjo in the middle of the night?

You might de-link me if you heard THAT!

Posted by: Acidman on September 1, 2005 03:49 PM

Banjos, middle of the night? BRING IT ON!

Oh, all the blogdrama makes me glad I DON'T blog anymore. Who needs it?

I'm much happier just blog READING than blogging myself.

If I ever do blog again, it will be with no site meter, no comments, and no blogroll.

I like you, you old jackass. You can't piss me off enough not to read you. You're on my blog list from day one. If people don't like you fuck the hell out of them. Tell them to kiss your fucking cracker ass and be done with them. Life's too short for head games.

Posted by: Assrot on September 1, 2005 06:29 PM

You weren't delinked collectively in one night. You were quietly delinked individually a long time ago.

Posted by: The Voice of Reason on September 1, 2005 08:20 PM

You know I love you, A-man. You remind me so much of my old southern relatives--they speak their minds and we all still love them anyway.
I appreciate your willingness to not take shit off anyone.
I still hope to meet you in person someday. You're a hell of a man.

You are one of the most unique and authentic voices in the blogsphere. For every delink you get, there are ten like me who still enjoy you, even if we don't agree with everything you say. Piss on them all.....

Posted by: Gahrie on September 1, 2005 09:51 PM

FUCK THEM.... Jesus H Fucking Christ... Delinking???? In my opionion, they need to get a life if that causes them great joy or pain... I used to blog... Way back in the olden days... I stopped when I started caring what people thought... I realized I needed to get a life... So I did... :)
FUCK them if they don't like you... But for the record, I would love to know who they are so I can see why they decided to delink you and maybe fuck with them a bit on their comments... I do get a jolly out of messing with folks sometimes...

What *this* one about?

Posted by: Juliette on September 1, 2005 10:40 PM

Ditto. I'm curious to know what's got the panties all in a bunch this time.

Posted by: Desert Cat on September 2, 2005 01:08 AM

Dammit Rob! That does it! I'm taking you offa my blogroll this instant...

Oh, wait. Don't have one.

Never mind.

Posted by: Bane on September 2, 2005 02:09 AM

An old adage comes to mind..."screw 'em if they can't take a joke"...
You'll ALWAYS be a favorite of mine, for simple truth/sincerity reasons, so don't change a thing, babe.

I look at it this way, I enjoy when jackasses and idiots don't like me. It makes me feel good about myself.
Sometimes, I get scared when somebody likes me who I neither like nor respect. I start to wonder what I'm doing wrong.

By your enemies you shall be known. Of course, now you have to deal with being liked by an A-hole like me.

And I ditto Bane's comment. You're not on my blogroll. Of course, I don't have one, but you are on my favorites list and have been for years.

I know I'm a yankee, but I really want to come down there with some Italian shine (homemade grappa, 180 proof+) and hoist a few with you. I'll drink from your mason jar and you drink from my vino bottle full of grappa.

People actually link to you????

Guess I'll have to update my template and link you so I can ritually delink too. Do you need candles for that?

Seriously, I don't understand the spatting that goes on here. How could anybody link to you and not already know you're an irascible son of a gun? Seems kind of silly to linking and delinking every time they get pissed, I assume over something you said.

BTW, if I ever get off my lazy butt and update my template, you're on my roll.
