Interesting. I have been getting an abnormal amount of verbal abuse and even
one physical threat in my email lately. It's hard to know what the right
approach to dealing with this ever growing problem should be. I have tried
to ignore it and pretend that it doesn't bother me when it's not directed to
me. But that's like pretending the neighbour's house did not get burned
I really wish this Usenet group had a moderator or a moderating team to
clean up the crap that comes through here. I have been coming here off and
on for a while and I think we are a valued community. For geeks of our sort,
we need to consult in an open arena like this. The last thing I want to see
is this Usenet group become like so many others and just become a place for
spammers to abuse, with no care as to our individual regards for our
community and our service that we provide for other less experienced in this
specialty of SEO. People come here with sincere questions and concerns
regarding SEO and search engine issues and we should be here to help them
and also to facet our own individual skills according to what we continue to
Being born and raised in a free world and taught me to stand up for what I
believe, is right is part of who I am, as is with many of us I would think.
Things like spam are wrong. Black Hat SEO is wrong. Greed to the point of
losing consideration of another person's life experience is wrong. Getting
to the top in anything with no regards for "fair play" is wrong. It may make
business sense to others but to me, maybe just me, it is wrong and I am free
to point that out.
I understand that some people and some cultures don't see things this way,
even in my own backyard. That doesn't make it acceptable.
I realize that there are no Internet referees, but I'm not against the
creation of one.
I look at people who try to discourage me from stating my opinions as to
what I believe is right and wrong similar to having the mentally of
terrorists. Should I buckle down and start sucking my thumb in the corner
because I am afraid? Have I no confidence in my positions on important
I also think often about some of our women contributors and the many, many
more female lurkers who frequent here. Do they want to see us capitulate
over the pressures of disrespectful forces? These questions make me wonder
about what kind of substance am I made from.
