Last ye…er..late 2014 I was, shall we say, ‘encouraged’ to take down my caving blog.
This was a blog I enjoyed adding to, and people (judging by site statistics) enjoyed reading. It also housed a review I was in the process of doing for the Xtar H1 light.
At least one person, a person I know, chose to ‘follow’ that blog, and subsequently took exception to something that was written in it.
This person did not come to ME about what I had written. There was always the option to leave a comment on any of those posts, as there is on this blog as well. The follower also knows my email address, and could find my mobile number with out too much hassle. And yet, chose not to get in touch. Instead, they chose to tattle to others which caused a great amount of strife. Consequences of that are still being felt. I no longer have that outlet to *talk* about things.
I deleted the blog out of respect for someone else who was put in an untenable position of go between. They were put there because the follower went to other parties with their ..concerns, and those parties went to the go between. NO ONE bothered to contact me about the words I had written.
I fully expect that the same person is now following this blog. Why they would, I don’t know, but I have an excellent imagination and can come up with a multitude of reasons. Not one of them is because they are interested in hand knit socks or how to crochet a blanket.
I say to you, the readers, if you have an issue with anything I’ve written, PLEASE talk to ME about it. If not, see below:
