That Was Nucking Futs On Sunday

We really felt violated after what happened in the Introducing Your Fridge Door thread, and foolish for trusting people's good nature, and shocked and in disbelief. Anyway, we're still Bloggie despite all this, and although the new system will involve passwords, we're going to make it extremely friendly to use and give it that bloggie touch. It'll also be the building block of the upcoming registration system, which we promise will always be optional. You'll always be able to use random nicks for fun, or post anonymously, and posting will never require registration. The only thing that will change is that you'll be able to pick your own icon never the soccer ball, that's for us two only :-) and you can protect your good name from impersonators. We only want to add to the Bloggie experience, never subtract. We're still going to keep the same exact spirit of openness, tolerance and free speech that we've had since the beginning.

We've banned two people recently, but our "no banning for expressing opinions, however distasteful or sheerly disgusting they may be" policy is still in effect.

The first person we banned, j0hhny/various misspellings of johnny, threatened to subject Bloggie's server to a denial of service attack, and then proceeded to spam us with obscenities and make Bloggie unusable. He threatened, the way the poker and pill spammers always have, to make Bloggie unreadable. So did BadImplementation/JohnnyNoMates, who was destroying your data on the server. Behavior that is entirely destructive and ruins the fun experience and friendly atmosphere of Bloggie is an existential threat to Bloggie's culture. We won't hesitate to ban the more virulent of social parasites that physically degrade the usability of Bloggie. We still won't ban anyone for discussing their opinions, however disagreeably, as long as actual interference with the freedom of others to express themselves on bloggie isn't threatened or attempted. So, look forward to the next raj, or Prince Henry Something Something Something Something Windsor, or whatever ;-) but if anyone comes near our baby menacingly, we'll knife them. We're like mama bears with our sweet Bloggie and our dear comrades.

People should know better than to piss off a Greek and an Arab.

I remember thinking when those macbook airs' came out that they wouldn't sell because they didn't have a cd/dvd drive.

I started using Firefox in late 2004. Its performance had started getting really bad, and in February of this year,
On both Firefox and Chrome, Shockwave Flash crashes. And crashes. And crashes. And crashes. And crashes.
I've been married to Firefox longer than all the others and it's working just fine.

Firefox's performance was awful at the beginning of this year. But it's gotten a lot better relative to Chrome.
