Ahemm… Is this thing on?
Since it appears I may be continually censored in my reply, I thought I would post my reply to a recent unnamed fan here. She had these kind, and obviously classy words to say.
“You know what helps when you want to be an e-bitch? Having consistency and a good reason to be an e-bitch. Lacking those two things just makes you appear ridiculous and attention-whoring.
I’m going to guess you’ve never tried to make anything, ever, in Second Life. This gives you the pedestal from which you vomit negative text from, yes? I get it – it’s your blog, you can say what you want – but you may want to consider having some class when doing it.
No link back. Not even worthy of it.”
And this was my reply, that has yet to be posted:
First of all, I’m sorry to those who were offended. To be fair though, there’s a warning at the top right for that. But, honestly, it was never my intention to bash hard working citizens of the second life. My goal was to offer up pictures of 50L friday, so that people wouldn’t have to wade through all the lag, and might find things that they like and end up actually shopping a bit at the stores that appealed to them. I added some over the top, obviously exaggerated comments to make folks laugh. It was a blog made for a few friends (if you had read further than the picture captions) and I really never expected to have many more viewers than that. I suppose I have you to thank for that. 😉
By the way Tenshi, I have created a couple things, a quick stab at xstreet would tell you that. ❤
Second, 50L may be just a few cents on the business end, but if I as a consumer am doing 50L friday every friday, those cents add up. But, on top of that, isn’t the idea of doing 50L friday so that a store can advertise itself and bring in consistent business? If you want the consumer to come back to your store, maybe think about putting a little more effort into your 50L items? Because the goal isn’t to sell the 50L item, it’s to bring them back to buy your full priced items.
Third, I spent hours wading through the 50L lag, and putting together pretty decent pictures, with links to the stores, even when I wasn’t a fan. So doesn’t that make the owners here that are complaining a bit hypocritical? I put hard work into my blog, for free even (not 50L), and you are bashing my hard work, and that is okay? Complaining about someone complaining… seems a bit on the rubber and glue side.
Fourth. My most heinous of accusations. All of you, my dears, are huge hypocrites. Why, not one person has opted to prove me wrong. I said it was horrible, I meant it was horrible… and yet people start making personal accusations about my spelling skills, or being just a sad, lonely person. I bitched about an article of clothing. You have made it personal, instead of just offering a rebuttal. You could have said a simple IS NOT… and maybe changed my mind? Instead you decided to provoke drama, and get me banned from sims when my intent was never more than to provide a way for folks to skip out on a little lag, maybe actually catch a few 50L items instead of crash, and hopefully help some shops get some actual shoppers in there. Your responses have been completely immature, and unproductive. Grow a pair and have a stab at me next time. Saying that I have no eye for detail or quality or the likes, but not knowing if I do, also, hypocrisy.
Fifth. If you had bothered to leave a link to my actual blog, instead of just posting partial pictures, folks might have seen that there is a common trend developing. The 50L & Themeory posts included a lot of pictures. The main focus was the pictures, with a sidebar of over the top comments. I thought this was quite apparent when I also included a random over-bicepped man on his hands. The other posts I did were quite positive, and hopefully a bit helpful to the readers and the shops. So please before any more comments are made here, why don’t you actually take a look.
By the Way Tensheep, next time you blog about someone behind their back, at least include a link. It’s only proper blogging etiquette after all.
PS Why would I search the Library of Congress for Honesty? <Insert Edit here, some fool told me to check the Library of Congress for the definition of honesty, read the replies, they’re truly entertaining>
