Google friend connect people, if you are still using this just FYI they killed it. It's broken and soon to die you should take the following action if you want to not be pestered by the ghosts of blogs past and unsubscribe from every one of those damn blogs via your handy dandy friend connect widget and follow the good ones with your RSS reader (bloglines, google reader, pulse ect...)
If you see I'm not on your friend connect it's because I've spend the afternoon doing what I recommend above myself and those of you that I enjoy reading I've manually found your atom or rss feedto my google reader. It's been an interesting ride, and some of you may have not understood why so many people seemed to be following you around via friend connect. Here's the deal, there was a bunch of people gaming google's ad platform via the stupid friend connect and more than once I had to hide my adsense badges to keep them from messing me up. In short that crew of nerds destabilized the adsense universe ever so slightly and lots of people that used the services in a legitimate manner where at risk of getting swept up in that business.
Anyhow I hope I entertain a few of you from time to time, but I know that is a lot to ask for most of you attention deficit kids on the internet and instead offer, that I'm going to keep blogging and hope you stick around. If not, whatever I was blogging in the dark for a few years I don't need a community to get satisfaction out of this platform.
