A couple things....

First...

I'm not going to finish any of my current fiction stories on this blog, nor am I going to write any new ones. It has been brought to my attention that the possibility of plagarism is quite high.

Not that anything I've written or plan to write is good enough to be plagarized, I just don't want to have it happen.

Second....

There has been quite the hubub in blogland lately.
A lot of people's feeling were hurt. A lot of people hurt other people either intentionally or unintentionally. Doesn't matter...people were still hurt.

"Sorry Clem! I didn't mean to shoot you in the face. I wasn't really aimin' at you in particular, I just got loopy and fired a few wild shots into the air."

Yeah yeah, an apology, but Clem was still shot in the face.

At any rate, a great many people are choosing to leave this blog place in search of greener pastures. Several of them are peepz I consider my friends.

I really don't know how or why any of this shit happened. But it seems to me something must have been festering for a while.

You don't have an explosion this big without someone packing a lot of powder kegs over time.

Maybe I'm wrong, and it was just a domino effect from hell that took place.

Doesn't matter.

What does matter is this...

People did stuff that was wrong. Some owned up to it, some didn't. Some people took a high falutin' stance, others threw a couple of low blows.

Fightin' is fightin' though, and that's something I came to blogland to avoid. I put up with enough of it in my real life.

I'm sorry to see everyone go, but I'm even more sorry about why they're all leaving.

Wether or not I'm gonna stick around at all isn't quite decided. Not that it matters too much. I'm not exactly one of the top bloggers anyway. So I doubt I'd be missed all that much.

Anyway, that's all I have to say for now.

It's a shame that you are giving up on your writing.
If you enjoy writing then I say write.
Plagarism is always a risk no matter where you write.
If someone takes your words for their own, just see it as a compliment of sorts. They will always be your thoughts and the foundation for future thoughts and writings.

I am the same and do not know if I am staying at all I was just going to all my friends from Chicago to see what the consensus is. I also read your post on the girl at work and agree that is a jerkoff who is willing to watch someone die because of some stupid made up religion.......

its a shame about the plagirism. This should be a venue for creative writers who love to write no matter what they put down. As for all the fighting...as I said before, I'm too little on the totem pole to be effected by it...not completely oblivious to it, mind you but no one has ever given me trouble. This may be one of those instances where its better to be a B-Movie actor than a major star.

Oh you are right. It was a powder keg, but wait and see, it will be better now.
