Ceci n'est pas une pipe

TLNL, the tag for this says the end. If this means you're quitting blogging, then it might be for the best. I think what you did was important and am grateful for your efforts.

Please don't take this the wrong way. I'm worried. On your forum I just found, you wrote about suicidal feelings. Don't go there. I'm not trying to make you feel worse or embarrass you. I don't know what to say. I emailed the address you gave to Aircraft Wings.

The blogosphere does suck. It's not your fault, and I'm kind of in the same boat wondering if I wasted too much time on it. Don't listen to what donkeytale wrote. He's usually a nice guy, but at some point he always tries to make people feel worthless. You're anything but that. Take care.

p.s. I can't win. If I toot my own horn about certain parts of my blogging, someone like donkeytale calls it worthless or worse. If I don't toot my horn, then there's no chance that what I researched and wrote will make a difference. My efforts were two-fold in regards to motive. I wanted to give newbies the heads up to the learning curve we went through. While most people simply go away, we both dug in our heels and fought back. The second motive and maybe the most important was about exposing these various charlatans. The content people like us provided was good stuff. It was not a waste of time for either of us. That being said, it's not fair to either of us to have all this resting on our shoulders to fix. We did the best we could. We should get off the net more often, but we should always keep our chins up for what we accomplished.
