Well it looks like the lot of us have a subject to tackle in the blog spheres this week.

This makes it even more clear that we need to watch each others backs.

I missed this too, but wow. Talk about nerve. Well, at least you can be pretty sure that after all this she won't be taking any more of your material. It's amazing what you have to watch out for.

It's really disturbing on a lot of levels. Certainly it's insulting. But this is somebody that works with EDP? Shouldn't she know better? I mean, people submit things with the trust that their work isn't going to be abused. Who is going to submit to Shock Totem if I say, "Oh, and by the way, I pull your subs out of my inbox and publish them on my blog with helpful tips." I mean, seriously?

But perhaps even more disturbing is the very nonchalant attitude that since it's on the 'net, she can just take it. People negotiate rights for a reason, and that's because they are important. She lost site of that, and it's unsettling.

No, she doesn't work with Every Day Poets. Yikes, I hope I didn't accidentally type that when I was ranting. She is just a random writer that I assume reads the EDP site and decided she liked my poem enough to make edits. Very Happy

The folks at EDP are awesome; their managing director also sent her an email requesting the removal.

Oh, I misunderstood! Thank goodness! The peeps at EDP have a good reputation and I'd hate to think otherwise.

Nah, not old and dumb. I didn't know till a few months back, either. Don't feel bad. (I had to ask too.)

Don't worry. All that acronym/initialism shit drives me mad. Especially when I play World of Warcraft. Those kids never spell out an entire word! I'm like, "Fuck, dude! Just tell me to shoot a fireball, for chrissakes! I don't know what 'FB DA VTA' means." Laughing

When people started writing LOL in the early 90s, my friend Jon would always end e-mails with that. I thought it meant "lots of love." Made me feel a little weird. Haha.

The little kiddos on WoW are annoying. Sorry, but they are. What irritates me is when I see stuff like... "Your mom, bro". Or "I totes pwned yer azz jus now, yo!"

Makes you want to just go on the rp servers. I don't play, but I know a whole shitload of people that do.

ETA: Totally unrelated, but why is my status hidden? Did I check a box by accident or something?

ETA Again: Never mind. I fixed it. I checked the wrong thing. All better.

The role-playing servers are exactly the same. All general chat nonsense.

Oh. You'd think they'd be different, huh? I never role played using text speak. Sheesh.

Age of Conan and LOTRO both seem to have better users in general chat than WoW. Age of Conan is rated M, so maybe that makes a difference, I don't know. LOTRO just seems to have attracted a crowd quite different from that in WoW.

Are you guys talking about World of Warcraft?

Shiney - I know nothing about txting phrases. I'm learning but you're not alone.

Yep WoW is World of Warcraft. I did peek in this week. But went back to writing. I just haven't felt the need of it.

I played very, very briefly. Hinny, you can get a free trial and see what you think. My old computer couldn't handle it.

Number 1: I'm not that social. I never joined up with anybody because they annoyed me. And I hate paying monthly bills. I'd rather dig up an old PS2 RPG game that I've forgotten about (or snag a new one at Gamestop) and play that.

Which reminds me. Anybody here have a PS3?

The makers of Age of Conan are working on a new one which is basically a modern-day MMO in what looks like a sort of Lovecraftian horror version of our world. Not many details about it yet.

Cool thing in Age of Conan - there are some quests with Lovecraft references (since Lovecraft and Robert E. Howard corresponded by letter).

Ha, I know that feeling! My character froze all of the time. She'd stand there on one foot like a dork. It was pretty frustrating.

If I even TRY to go on Youtube, it's pointless. The sound is over before the video is even loaded. Very Happy

Anyways, sorry I missed this yesterday. I'd pile on, but it looks like she's gotten her ration and then some. Sorry this happened to you, D.
