POSTING BY JB MADDAWG
Upon returning to WordPress one year ago, The ThrowDown has attained some amazing successes. The distance this blog has travelled since 2009 has far surpassed my expectations and will continue to do so. However, as the creator of The ThrowDown, I have to accept failures or mismanagements with “the buck stops here” mentality. There has been something that’s been bothering me for sometime now, and it’s the fact that I haven’t been completely honest with my blogging. One could go back a year ago, when we relaunched, and one of the first phrases I mentioned was, “we tell it like it truly is”. At some point since then, I stopped doing that. For this, I apologize to all readers of The ThrowDown.
This blog not only survives, but flourishes on the principle that we don’t bullshit you. We all love readers, but our commitment is to writing posts that not many other blogs would dare to pen. You expect more from us, and you should. So, let’s correct a few missteps that have been made recently, before we all move forward. Because, as Bob Dylan once sang, “O the times, they are a changin’.”
First off, I would like to apologize to the commenter “Keef”, which she actually posted several comments on my post that more than a few of you read, The Man That Said No to @SimonPegg. Feel free to view our exchange, and I will apologize for being in some sort of Zen/Ghandi mode when I dealt with her. I’d like to correct that. Keef actually insulted me several times and had the audacity to bring up America’s involvement with Israel, which was completely inappropriate. She used fancy terms like “jingoism” and called me a douche several times. Obviously, she’s been attending one of the fine “pro-American” classes at Berkley, CA in her “ten years” in our country.
Keef, if you’re out there somewhere, just know I think you’re a Jew hating, America bashing vomit sack that may talk to your pussy whipped little monkey of a husband like a Nazi bitch, but I’m not him (you could only hope to be so lucky), you four star troglodyte. Go fuck yourself rotten. The ThrowDown compiles views that could fill a major sports venue, and none of those fine folks come here to hear your stupid tripe. You had one shot at fame, and you blew it, in front of thousands. I’m very sorry…that your such a bona-fide loser.
Moving on, I’d also like to apologize for promoting certain blogs in the past that really have no business being associated with us. I’ve amended our “Friends of The ThrowDown” list on the sidebar and removed the blogs in question. Later this year, we will be once again doing what we consider our “high-profile” posts, i.e celebrity interviews, and I see no need for those blogs to benefit from our popularity. Best of luck to you, but we don’t support freeloader blogs.
Also, I’d like to apologize to one blog posting site in particular, where a few readers have been offended, and have tried to get us reported as spam. You’re obviously too young to understand that you don’t have to read our posts if you don’t like them. Please. Go somewhere else, we encourage you to leave if you’re too much of a pansy to hear a different point of view.
Truly, I do apologize to the loyal ThrowDown readers that have had to stomach my “kinder, gentler” moments, as they won’t be happening again. As for the ones that enjoy neutral blogging without any sort of opinion whatsoever, we are not for you. You can find any one of those blogs in the “Freshly Pressed” section of WordPress. WE, are The ThrowDown. And we will continue to tell it, like it truly is.
