TO THE READERS OF MUGWUMPS:
As most of you have probably noticed, I am very fond of the Conservative TreeHouse website and often reblog many of their articles.
Recently, I tried to comment on their website and the comment was not printed. I thought it was my computer, so turned it off and on and tried again, to no avail. The comment would not post.
So I wrote to them at The Last Refuge and asked them why the comment would not post. Here is the answer I received:
We asked you over a month ago to stop using our blog solely to advertise your own blog. You refused to honor our request, so we withdrew your posting privileges.
Ad rem/ Admin…
I was shocked because I had never received anything from them asking me to stop advertising my own blog, and I have never ever advertised my blog on their blog. The only thing I’ve consistently done is reBLOG their wonderful posts.
I wrote and told them I’d never posted anything about my blog, I only reblogged their posts.
So, what are they talking about? I can’t figure it out. The only thing that comes to mind is that I’ve linked to articles that would corroborate or add to any articles they’ve posted, and some may have been mine. I’ve never had any blog or website tell me that links were not accepted. We don’t like more than two links in a comment, but I’ve never refused links, because there well could be additional information of great importance.
So, I’m not receiving any answer from them, which tells me they’re not the kind of people I thought they were, and since I liked them so very much, that is very disturbing to me.
The question is…should I continue to reblog their posts to you readers? Some of them are so very good, and just forget about it, or….do I drop them?
I cannot understand anyone treating another blogger who has given them more readers like they’ve treated me. It seems very childish, but perhaps they have a list of requirements, and I’ve failed to read them, albeit I never saw any.
It’s up to you, my readers. Let me know what you think.
