Who's Doing Blogroll Amnesty Day?


For the last few years, Jon Swift hosted it but Jon fell by the wayside almost a year ago and it looks as if he's down for the count. While his undeniable talent is irreplaceable and a crying shame, his idea of Blogroll Amnesty Day is too good to disappear along with him and it ought to continue.

Does anyone intend on officially taking up the mantle? If not, I'd love to host it early this February.

It doesn't really need a host so much as a reminder. I already have it on my calendar to mention it at my place, and we'll mention it at the podcast, too. As long as a lot of us remember and post about it as you just did it will go swimmingly. Of course, if you WANT to post links to everybody, that's awesome!

I'll also update a video people can post and let you know.

I'm thinking of having a new .jpeg done to commemorate the day.

I always thought it was Jon Swift who hosted it then I realized I confused that with him asking people for links to what they thought were their best posts of the year.

So JP, at this point you are reduced to combing through the comments and deleting the ones you find unfavorable? Oh, that's just great.
I keep on telling you JP, head West! California or Oregon, or maybe Eastern Washington is where you want to be.
I've been reading your blog for about a year, and all I can do is tell you; get the hell out of Mass. or the NE generally. On the West Coast you will find lots of people who think like you, and I also think your writing will be better received.

Oh, don't bother going through and deleting all those wonderful posts about "the end of the road" and the "douchebag", cause I've got screen-shots of those. Besides, your vanity forbids that.

C'mon out West, darn it! A guy like you could be really happy, and do well for himself here.

Actually, I thought skippy hosted it, or at least that's where I left links.

I'm not reduced to combing through anything. You see, any comments that are put on this blog get sent automatically to my email inbox that comes with a permalink to the pertinent post. I simply click on it, go right to the post and I can decide whether or not I want to manage any specific comment.

But even if I was "reduced" to "comb(ing)" through my comments, it's still a damn sight less pathetic than trolling a C list blog on an hourly basis, taking screen shots of posts that you deem, somehow, personally offensive and leaving nonsensical posts urging me head west as if you were some syphilitic reincarnation of Horace Greely.

So at least I can say that.

For instance, it's notable that within seconds after posting that last comment, someone in the 02115 zip code (Boston) with the IP address 170.223.83.142 clicked on my masthead 8 times in six minutes. That IP address has been traced to the Partners health care system.

Gee, who do I know who works for Partners and I wonder what her superior would think if I informed them their subordinate were trolling a political blog, one written by someone formerly of their acquaintance who wants nothing to do with them, first thing in the morning when they ought to, instead, be running an important department?

That wouldn't look very good on a performance review, would it?

(By the way, the record of those hits on my Gostats account, which proffers a frightfully complete body of information, supplemented by Google searches, has been printed out and lovingly preserved for posterity.)

Now get a life, my darling ex, and leave me alone. You're not the only one who can can claim harassment and stalking.

Thanks for the laugh, it's amazing that people don't know that every compture has an address and can be traced backwards. Just not to bright I'd say.

Hooee, JP, you sure know how to draw them out!

Listen, if push comes to shove, here are some links that may help you determine if you’re being stalked as you claim:

Here are the statutes regarding stalking in MA. Here’s the MA general law’s definition of online stalking, Sec. 43 (a): “Such conduct, acts or threats described in this paragraph shall include, but not be limited to, conduct, acts or threats conducted by mail or by use of a telephonic or telecommunication device including, but not limited to, electronic mail, internet communications and facsimile communications. ( Emphasis mine.) I take it that that includes blogs and commentary (I’d save ‘em instead of censoring ‘em). The specific stature prohibiting online stalking can be found here.

I’m a legal clerk so, while I’m not a lawyer nor live in MA, I know a thing or two about the law, such as finding resources. It’s what I do for a living. My two bit advice: Steer clear of these wackos. They’re bad news. Even if they’re not, don’t take any chances. If you retaliate in like fashion, you won’t have a f_ckin’ leg to stand on even if they’re harassing you from their jobs. Good luck, dude.

Ahahah you're so funny. Partners employs over 52000 people. OF COURSE your ex is the only one that reads your blog.
