Some post whores are not blogging on 911...lets find them other reasons to stop blogging


A few people have been going around the blogs promoting no blogging on Monday 911.

Many of them are comment whores. The only way to shut them up is to stick a big fat carrot in their mouths.

I WILL NOT JOIN THEM.

I didnt support it for those phonies who died and I dont support it now.

People die every day....some in pain...some in no pain......some prematurely....and some outlive everybody. That is life.

So if these people are going to stay away on Monday, it is no big deal to me. Maybe they will go outside and get some fresh air.

Here is a list of dates for these people:

Thanks for the history lesson. Everyone should realize that by stopping everyday normal activities those that want to control us have won. Maybe stopping for a minute or 3 or 10 is fine but carry on and live free. Everyone needs to do what they think is right but stopping the normal routine only disrupts things more.

I mean no disrespect to anybody who died anywhere anytime with this post.

I just find these "no bloggers" to be silly.

It is an adult personals site. How does the stopping of blogging accomplish anything ???

If you want to honour these people who died, get educated....gather as much info as you can and process it.

Stop putting people with questionable backgrounds in office.

I think these idiots who try to make everything a Blogville community holiday take themselves way too seriously.

There is no significance for me on Monday other than the fact our country is still no safer from terrorists, Bush still hasn't figured out why we went to war with Iraq and Osama Bin Laden has still not been captured.

Five years and not much has changed....

Perhaps those people who think abstaining from posting on Monday means anything should stop blogging permanently.

Even though I don't favor the no-blogging-day myself, I respect everyone's right to do what they feel like they should do...or not do, lol. I liked your inclusion of all these tragedies, because I think a lot of people don't think beyond the obvious. 9/11 is one of those days that still frequents my mind, but I won't spend all day gorging myself upon it...not when life is currently happening all around me. I have no special blogging plans, I tend to be spontaneous, and Monday will be no different. If I don't post, it will be because I either have nothing to say, or I'm too tired from work that day. I admire you for speaking your mind about it.

I do not understand why it is required to be referred to as "911", instead of the World Trade Center. Perhaps it has something to do with the association of an "emergency"? To me, it trivializes the event. Why not refer to Pearl Harbor as "12-7"?

I won't go into what I think of the scenario of the WTC itself. I do feel it was a tragedy for the thousands that died as well as for the people who were forced to witness it, along with the ones who are still forced to witness it.

Some tragedies are immortalized - some are not. But, Steve, as you say... life goes on. Whatever anyone decides to do, here, in AFFland, it is their choice. Either BLOG or don't. It is no skin off my nose and certainly none off all of the dead... everywhere - since the beginning of time.

I read the whole thing I cut and pasted here.

I knew about the Union troops who got killed on that steamboat at the end of the civil war in 1865. 1700 troops out of 2300 troops died on that boat when a boiler exploded. In that war, you didnt just have to worry about being killed by the enemy. DISEASES killed many troops too.

So I find it very sad that these guys had to die this way.

I agree with you. There is nothing to gain by stopping.

I agree with your 'SERIOUSLY' comment.

It must be a shock to them that other bloggers are not willing to join them in their day of silence. They probably thought they had influence here.

I got news for them. If they left, somebody will be there to replace them. People come and go from this place all the time. Their blogs are not that special.

I am wondering where Osama Bin Laden is too.

People cannot just live in a hole and survive several yrs without somebody knowing what is going on. He has to eat.

At one time, 25 million dollars was offered for his head. I have no idea what the current reward is at this time.

He is getting close to 50 yrs of age.

Naturally I respect everybody’s right to do as she or he pleases. However, if one is going to refrain from blogging for a day, then simply refrain from blogging. It’s a personal decision, keep it to yourself. Why draw attention to the fact? Looking for accolades?

It reminds me of a fella I used to date who used to go on and on about how much money he donated here and how much money he donated there---as if I was going to say, “Oh, my you’re such a great guy.” He wasn’t such a great guy. Charity is something one is personally moved to do for whatever reason---it is no longer charity if one is looking to get an “atta boy” out of the deal. It’s vile to speak of one’s philanthropy. This is the same guy that would leave an 82-year-old waitress in a diner a 70 cent tip on a $7.00 bill. Yet, he’d leave his buddy, or whoever he was trying to buy as a buddy, $10 for a $3 beer.

Not impressed.

It was not a special day for me.

I still went to work and lived my life.

I think many of the people who declared that they were not blogging that day did it as a stunt.

Who first called it 911 ?

You are not alone. I had the same questions.

I can understand a company coming up with a catchy title to sell a product, but this was a disaster. It is in poor taste, but you are the first person to I ever heard speak up about it.

Were the people who died and the property that was damaged a "product" ???

    Steve, I think you might have included the race riots that swept through the U.S. in the 20th century: the Red Summer of 1919, the 1943 Detroit Race riot, and, of course the riots of the 1960s. It's important to remember that hate and killing does not always originate from outside a country, but goes in within a nation and between its citizens.
This list did NOT include everything.

An average of 20 000 Americans are killed by drunk drivers every yr too.

I just posted some of what you said here above you.

Why not just go away for a day ?

Why post about it 2 days ahead ?

There are people that give that do it anonymously for the reasons you stated here. They also dont want to be bugged by people wanting their money.

I notice sometimes after somebody dies, a lot of money is given away to charities and the giver is known. A local millionaire gave a lot of money away to the hospital through his will. He was treated there and he wanted to do his part to make improvements.

I have been reading a lot of blogs with political subjects in the last week.

Americans have been responsible for killing tens of thousands or more innocent people with bullets, bombs, napalm etc.

But they are poor people..non whites....non english......poorly educated and they didnt work in an office building.

Nobody knows any of their names.......nobody cares.

Many people in the world know their history.

I am wondering how long 911 is going to be "celebrated" too.

I know that important dates of world war II, such as D DAY, are commemorated every few yrs, but that is only because there are still soldiers who were involved who are still living today.

Maybe 911 is going to be celebrated for the next 50 or 60 years.

Hell - at least that, perhaps 100 years.

People die in Africa by the thousands every day, are brutally murdered in fact, but they don't even make the news.

I think that we should remember, but carry on despite it, or you are right - each day would be a blog-free day.

I dont know if 911 will be remembered as much in 50 or 60 yrs or more.

After the first world war, there was a flu epidemic that killed many people.

Many people nowadays dont remember it, but it was a very bad situation that was felt for many many yrs.

I noticed a long time ago that international stuff makes the news if the major news organizations have staff there. They cannot justify having staff report on stuff that nobody really cares about in their home countries. They cannot be everywhere.
