Grr, This Is Irritating Me To Distraction!

I am really getting frustrated (read, PISSED OFF) with the folks running this site due to the fact that they are letting some of my blogs run for a few days and then suddenly taking them offline and leaving me a cryptic note in bold red font that I have been denied and a link to "update".

WTF, do you guys want me to update?
@#$%$^4*% and every other word in the book of curses I direct to your mysterious censors and the program they have adopted to filter my blog.

I spend a lot of time putting together a harmless story of comic vacation and you guys run the dang thing for a while and then POOF you remove the second part of the story making me look like an idiot who cannot connect his own dots to anyone new viewing my blog.

I want my story to be continuous so I tried to guess at what was wrong and resubmitted it only changing one small reference. It is back together as of now, but for how long?

Next, (and what prompted me to write this blog) I find that another of my blogs has been removed. And this after garnering quite a few comments over a political matter that all are talking about the world over.

Once again I was at a loss as to what part was the "problem". So I have given it a sarcastic new title and maybe that will stick for a while.

One more thing. (After all this is The Venting Blog....)

What are you guys doing that prevents my friends from posting in my blog? Fix the *&$^# thing NOW!

I see post after post about this; one would think that a company the size of A.F.F. would be more proactive. The A.F.F. folks should post some rules or guidelines; which helps us bloggers comply with their wishes. However, with out a set of rules, the user community just gets more and more pissed as blogs are arbitrarily erased.

It is frustrating, and there seems to be nothing that we can do about it until a human being (those funny bipod things who think as well as act) finally act and correct the problems!

I did a quick count and I see 190 comments on you blog which means should appear halfway up the fist Full page (view All) but no sign of you, I think this is tied into your problems somehow and why people cant add you to thier watch list.

Thank You for Your Time and Attention

Yes, I agree with that assumption expat.

Also, while I am at it I want to say that my good pal expat has taken more than a little time out of his day this past week to try and help me with this problem. He is a hero on land as well as upon the Seven Seas!

I hear you Keith. I think they have people who arbitrarily kill posts, just for fun. I had one post denied with the same lame reasons you stated, but the only thing in the post was questions about AdultFriendFinder's shortcomings. Seems they don't like criticism, even from the paying customers.

In my similar experience, I referred in a post to, because it bleeds through, because we see each other's group-blogs, and info.
When I inserted a "?" instead of the first letters of the corporate entities involved, it was relisted. However, I have seen posts where some only hit "repost", no changes...and all was well.
It's kind of interesting....watching an obvious tech problem; maybe the system was not designed for THIS much attention,...
and a perceived adolescence about the created personality of a 'public product' offering corporation.
But I have no doubt that it is a situation of multiple entities, attracting a base from dissimilar approaches, and then merging membership to streamline delivery. There is surely a representation of missed communications during the process of amalgamation.
Thoughts?....that if allowed to get big enough,
it will adjust,
to wide, wide audience input,
and will give us whatever we want....

as long as we.........

sorry for the anguish.........

in an unrelated thought.....
If you want to know about Bonnaroo...the festival in Manchester, TN...I will say, shortly, you would find it very enjoyable, and as for giving your son money to go....
it is like a Vegas, for young music fans, without the Mustang Ranch aspect. It's a great time for every hour of three and a half days, something going on everywhere. There is food and drink official, and there is pretty much anything else, otherwise. There are roads, as all the vehichles, mostly only three or four years old, have entered, and pulled into a camping spots. Skyview acres of campsites... and along the roads to the stages area, are vendors, of all things festival.
You should go with him. You'd definitely like it, and maybe you'd see your son, and maybe you wouldn't...but you'd be there.

Hey lustmirror! Thanx for the thoughtful replies. On both subjects. I ordered tickets for him a few days ago. I envy him, I went to many concerts when I was 17-21 and have been working on a blog for it.

I have seen your comments in many blogs and have been meaning to get over to your blog. You have a very unique way of expressing yourself. I love your sarcasm and wit. See you there!

Well, I'm posting this on the 20th, and you're still not appearing on my watched list, so I can only assume that AdultFriendFinder have failed to solve the problem, even though you brought it to their attention and even though they *promise* an answer within 24 hours.

I shall send them a small note too, just to remind them, even if it doesn't do any good.

Hullo slide! Found you in my basement, I did! Isn't it interesting to note that the same subjects and bugs found in early blogs are still matters of discussion today?
