Housekeeping

I have a guy - who is going to switch my entire blog out of Google. I'm sure that I could do it myself, but I have a guy. And he's boarding a plane from Shanghai at high noon for the Dallas Metroplex as I type (but he won't be staying at LSP's annex in Dallas). And eventually it will be fixed. Within a couple of weeks, I'm guessing.

GOOGLE has been giving me a lot of heartache. I can't comment on my own blog, delete spam, etc. There are a couple of other blogger-driven blogs that I can comment on such as WSF or LSP. I can't comment on LindaG or the Daily Timewaster. And I suspect skulduggery on the part of Google. Call me suspicious. If I hadn't been on blogger for a long time, I'd think that the glitch was with me.

President Trump is compiling a list (HERE) and (HERE). So I'm going on record that there appears to be skulduggery. I can't tell you whether or not Google is playing fast and loose with me, but it would fit the pattern that other people have experienced.

Mike_C's Complaint

Yesterday Mike_C replied to my blog post in this way:
Playwright and occasional movie critic Stella Duffy: Net worth somewhere around $16 million. White lesbian. Sorry, Mx Duffy, as a rich white person, you DON'T get to speak for persons of color. And lesbian with a wife? A committed lesbian relationship is so bourgeois that these days it's practically straight, only with more flannel shirts and worse haircuts. How DARE you presume to speak on behalf of the truly marginalized?
Mike - Mike - Mike, women who wear comfortable shoes (as opposed to 'lipstick lesbians, who wear Jimmy Choo shoes) have been sorely oppressed. Oh, sure, they drive their Bentleys from their homes in Pacific Pallisades to Whole Foods, and shop on Rodeo Drive (which is going to be renamed Obama Boulevard), but do they find R-E-S-P-E-C-T in the world of Deplorables, which includes YOU, Mike? No. They don't. Deplorables are not bound by race or national origin. They cling to the notion of gender inflexibility, and vote for the Orange Man. Deplorables don't feel that the Academy Awards are important, or the other statue awards that the Hollywood Elite hand out to each other while making disparaging statements about the great unwashed meat eaters in fly-over country who contribute to their extravagant lifestyles, orgies and indirectly -- causes.

As one of your betters, Mike_C, she feels empowered to speak for you, one of the marginalized. She's better than you and so is her carpet-eating wife. Face it, live with it, and embrace her love for you and the rest of the little people she speaks for. I suspect that she feels that a heavily armed mouth-breather such as myself is well beneath her contempt, and far beyond redemption.

  1. Francis Porretto is going the same route and asking for suggestions, which of course I was happy to give :)
    Caveat emptor :)

  2. My traffic count is so minuscule Google can't be bothered. They do bedevil my son (OccultBlackMetalZine) with his several "zines". Guess they don't like out of bounds dark metal.

    Note about my son. I don't understand a damn thing he reports on but he has a large following - just not many comments.

    1. My eldest boy just migrated out of something horrible called "death metal" to the Army. hmmm. Curious trend.

  3. Ah, LL. LSP's been banned from Insta and F/idiot and, a little while ago, from Blogger itself.

    You're probably getting too many hits and now they're mad. Just migrate to Wordpress on a freedom server. Hell, set up a WWM server yourself and do it in house.

  4. That certainly explains the lack of response to comments, something I enjoy as much as the actual blog.

  5. What are migrating to? Wordpress?
