first off, i will say that i am a fan of TMN, and i read it regularly. There is a link to it over yonder. That said, i think there needs to be some things said to the general community, regarding TMN.
There is some drama going on right now regarding tmn and the people who read it, vs the people who disagree with it. Some claim that it is a bad blog and all they say is hurtful evil mean things, and others say its jolly good fun, get over it. its all a matter of personal opinion really, but when it starts to come between friends, then its time to take a step back and think about what it is your actualy fighting over.
bob likes the mares nest, and reads it all the time. bob blogs about it from time to time too, and tmn somtimes blobs about bob. bob is happier than a pig in shit when tmn mentiones him or his blog.
betty reads tmn too, but she doesnt care for them too much. she doesnt like the things they say, or the things they do, and she blogs about it as well. her blogs are negative. tmn blogs about her too, and betty feels she is being attacked and flamed.
bob tries to convince betty that she should have just kept her mouth shut, wheras betty thinks she had a right to speak, even if it IS against bobs precious mare.
so are we following yet? if bob and betty truly loved each other, they would respect each others feelings AND opinions, and not let something as trivial as TMN come between them. because... ITS NOT IMPORTANT!
its a blog. its not the prophetic stone wall scratching made by civilizations long past. its not the will and word of some omnipotent deity. its not even a friggin fortune cookie. why does everyone in the simmers community take it all so seriously?
look, if you go around, tip toeing thru your blogs and online chattings walking on eggshells afraid to speak to anybody, then who the hell are you? if you cant be yourself, why bother? dont be afraid to be who you are, because you 'might' get on someones bad side for 2 minutes. believe me, there are WAY more important things in life to worry about.
both bob AND betty need to see that this isnt important. if their friendship means anything to either of them, THAT should come first
ive tried to be as vauge as possible to protect the identities.i hope you guys listen to what im saying here. you know who you are
