Lynyrd Responds Below... "Click" to read.
Well... let's put it this way Suze:
As most people probably have figured-out over time, there are essentially two Katie's. The happy one, and the pissed-off one. Generally speaking... if you treat Katie respectully, you get the happy one. If you dis-respect her, you get the horns.
As I've said before... I DON'T condone everything Katie says or does... AND... I can't/won't be held personally responsible for her actions... any more than I would be, for any other blogger.
BUT... having said that:
I DID read Katie's comments at Liz's on the original night of "shenanigans"... and they weren't that outrageous. She said nothing, I would have deleted myself. Her words were "controversial"... maybe even "argumentative" and "silly"... but nothing outrageous.
At the end of the day... I DO believe Liz's Blog, DOES have a stricter set of standards for some bloggers than others.
It's not just what you write... but, who you are... and that really is a fact.
Bobby, Mary, Myself, and others... have all experienced being "held to a higher standard" over there... and have found our comments deleted. That's why we don't go there... and (quite frankly) that's just as well with me.
Bottom Line Suze:
I DON'T agree with Katie's methods of defending herself... OR her 12 post rant at Colonel's. That shit sucks for everyone... including me. I hate stumbling upon that stuff. It translates into major, unnecessary head-aches.
BUT... at the end of the day Suze... Katie's premise is actually correct. She does get "slighted" at Liz's.
Liz's blog has a ZERO tolerance policy for the folks from my blog. The only thing we can get away with posting is "Thanks Liz... nice photo". That's a fact.
If we're not deleted... we're attacked gang-style... usually both!
Every time I go over there, and really contribute by voicing my honest opinion on any subject... I end-up defending myself... four against one. It happens every time. I simply can't get out of there peacefully... unless I make a "fluff" post, and say next to nothing.
I say Liz's Blog... but, it's NOT to say Liz specifically. Liz (I don't think), gets into the deleting... and she definitely doesn't get into the arguing. There are 4 administrators there... so, it's hard to discern the culprit. I really don't think it's Matt. I have quite a bit of respect for Matt.
I went over there to compliment Matt about his views on Catholic funerals recently... and Ken immediately took the opportunity to make a "snide" remark about "catholic school girl outfits". I ignored him. I could have eaten him alive... but, if I gave it back... it would have been another four-on-one brawl... and I would have been the bad guy again.
There's also the constant "passive aggression"...
**Brownrice and Matt both knew damn well... the "Harold True footage" which Revatron was referring to... was on my site. But, instead of directing Vera (and other bloggers) to my site... they purposely searched-out another copy somewhere on YouTube.
**Ken had to immediately point-out, last night... that my new thread regarding the Debra Tate news was on Cat's blog 4 days ago.
**Ken sarcastically jabbed Katie pretty hard, on his blog the other night.
Suze... it's all just foolish, petty, "baby shit". It's neeedless games and harrassment... but it exists on both sides. Suze... it's definitely NOT a one-sided situation.
Thing is Suze... the folks from my blog, are definitely treated as "second class citizens" at Liz's location, and held to a stricter standard. There's no doubt. Myself (and others), deal with it, by simply not going there. Personally... all the "baby shit" doesn't matter to me a whole lot. I really don't care. Katie internalizes it... and deals with it her own way. What can I tell ya?
Katie isn't wanted at Liz's, by at least one of the administrators... yet, she functions fine here. The proof is in the pudding.
I have DEFINITELY had to delete some of Katie's comments myself on occasion.
BUT... if you treat Katie in a "welcoming manner"... as a friend... and value her opinions... those times where/when "deletion" is necessary, are few.
Most times under her outrageous delivery... Katie's spot-on correct... AND... if you allow Katie to have her say... without deleting her words every time... she will usually apologize the next day... if she is, in fact, wrong.
What can I tell ya Suze...
Sometimes in life, you get what you give... and sometimes (in Katie's case), you get more than you bargained for. In the words of Rodney King: “Can’t we all just get along”? At the end of the day... it's just a freakin' blog.
To answer your question directly Suze:
No… I can’t contain Katie. She’s a women on the other side of the country, on a computer. For the record Suze... Revatron is/was clearly wrong anyway...
