an open letter to the powers that be#1
Posted: 11/3/07 at 7:42pm
dear rob and craig,

i think it's about time that someone around here had the balls to speak truth to power and by god i've got my balls in my hand and am not around to use them!

i know you claim to work your asses off to make this site a place that people can enjoy, but do you? do you really? i mean if you were really working so hard would this site ever go down? i don't think so. if you were really putting the time in would there ever be any server issues or data loss or any problems whatsoever? i think i can say categorically that no such things would ever or could ever happen.

the fact that this place is free to use and that many, many, many users never step outside the ot board and thus provide you guys with little or no revenue besides a few random bumps on the hit counter does not absolve you of the duty, yes i said duty, to cater to every whim of every person who has ever signed onto the site. i demand that you personally respond to every issue that is raised. no more of this hiding behind anonymous moderators, you two get out there and answer every single issue and answer them within 2 hours.

as far as this horse hockey of the deletions of threads? that sh*t's done as of this moment. from now on, i demand that you take a poll of bww members before deleting anything. in fact i think you should appoint a panel of posters who are the public face of bww who will rule on any board related issues. they will answer to the people and be accountable in that they can be recalled by a bww poster vote. i am not going to get into the specifics, i know that you two don't have any real jobs and are simply living off the millions in ad revenue that this site generates on a daily basis.

that's another point: the fact that you are not sharing the ad revenue with the posters. from now on we demand a weekly dividend to be divided among all posters. we made this site and we can destroy it! sure you guys did the work, but if not for us there would be nothing so you'd better listen to us and not make us mad. dammit.

finally, i feel that since i am a god among mere mortals that i should have the power to delete posters from the site, post whatever i want whenever i want, sleep with any poster i so designate and never, ever have the site falter in any way while i am using it. don't pretend you can't make all of those things happen. they are the least you owe me after all these years!

do not test us as we are legion!

love and kisses,

papalovesmambo

Well, papa, I worry that issues I find of import are not taken seriously by others, as well.

I guess we all have our priorities.

i thought you'd given up the importing to concentrate solely on the exporting?

As long as I can't get a single-malt made in California, I'm committed to importing.

papa, you're better as eva than you are at patton.

Still, you're right about everything you said.

Rob & Craig owe us everything.

After all, we are "the people."

And we are entitled to anything and everything we want her in Amer'ca.
