Booo Hisss

So. Hi everybody.

I got some lovely mail today.

"You're too lazy to design." "You're jumping on a bandwagon." "Why are you making your readers suffer?" "You're just doing this for 'link love'." "This is like not being away and leaving your AIM away message up." "This idea is retarded, you must be proud."

And then I reacted.

All I have to say is, wow. A lot of people decided to kick themselves in the asses this morning. I come home from a great movie (it was Stranger Than Fiction by the way, really good flick, I highly recommend it.) and vicious man-eating reptiles start leaping at my poor site. You know, usually I wouldn't just come out and say something like this, but what the hell and ... o_O?!? Why are the lot of you such haters? This is not some ploy, this is not the reincarnation of CSS Naked Day, this is not me riding a bandwagon. This is a designer, me, wanting to redesign his personal site and thinking the best way to do it is by stripping it. Is that so hard to understand?

*sigh* In so many words, I had a lot more to say.

To those who decided to leave those lovely messages, the least you could do is... nevermind.

Ahem, remember the golden rule!

Oh but, to those who are still reading, remind me to put a "mind your manners" warning when I'm redesigning. However, I'm sure all these lovely comments from faithful readers who leave email addresses like [email protected] will get me back into shape.

Oh that's what I wanted to say, if you're going to leave a comment and a contrary one at that, have the decency to leave an email address. A working email address. What are you afraid of? Oh well.

Thanks, now back to your regularly scheduled spam outbreak.
