Clean up and get out

Hola,

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.

  2. Yeah I guess you have to take some action to confront that. Reading just new google's policies won't do anything.. Thank you for this.

    "I take that you have a lovely couch in your home? Per year how many days do you sleep on the couch?
    But you have captured everything right about dating over-the-top rich guys. And not to forget the "the rich people thing" slogan in condescending tone.
    Unless if a woman has plans to marry the millionaire, date his secretary and sleep with pool boy, not everyone's cup of tea, or maybe a strong prenuptial if there are plans to break it off in 3 months ;) else will end up only with lowselfesteem"

    I meant to say that his post about his bro-in-law would result in him getting kicked out from his bedroom and he may need to sleep on the couch. He does post about his bro-in-law often.

    And "rich people thing" slang isnt that common?
    I hate golf and I dont agree or accept golf as a sport but would often get "rich people thing" as reply or response all the time. Not just golf but auction, antiques and all such.

    Engrish? Very well, no denial there. But crazy comment? well, I would like to say ts;cr but I rather not ;)
