Looking at the first 118 responses to our recent reader survey, I’m able to tally the following:
- 65% of those who responded like me, and/or this blog, and find what I offer here to be enjoyable or useful
- 30% of those who responded dislike or hate me, and/or this blog, and find what I have to offer here to be annoying and of little use
- 5% of those who responded really don’t have an opinion on the matter
I’m not surprised to see that the majority, close to two-thirds, like what I am doing at WasWatching.com. After all, most who responded saw the survey because they read and enjoy this blog. (And, my thanks to those who had nice things to say about me via their votes and comments in that survey.)
However, the fact that close to one-third of those who responded – and perhaps one-third of those who read this blog – dislike or hate me and/or this blog is bothersome to me.
There’s too much hate and displeasure in the world, period, as it is today. And, I don’t want to be the cause to add to any of that bad stuff.
So, I have a favor to ask.
Actually, strike that. And, make it “I have a plea to beg.”
If you are someone who doesn’t like me, or what I do at this blog, please stop reading it (and what I write here). Please put an end to exposing yourself to what I write – if what I have to say and share leads to you being upset and having ugly thoughts towards me and/or this blog. There’s no need for you to read this blog. Take it – and me – off your radar.
I’ll be honest. There are some other bloggers (and the like) out there who I think are F.O.S Asshats. Related, I stopped reading their blogs/sites and never went back to them. There’s enough on the internet that there’s no need for me to go out and read stuff that I don’t enjoy or find useful. It’s a waste of time to be concerned with things that you’re better off avoiding.
Again, please consider my request – one that’s made with all sincerity and good intentions. If you don’t like me, or what I am doing at this blog, please do yourself some good and stop visiting this site – now and forever.
Regardless of how you feel about me and my work here, I do not want to be the source of any irritation in your life. And, you have the power to put an end to any displeasure I may be causing you. This is why I ask you: Please stop visiting and reading this blog.
