What happened here?

Everything was going fine here. Lots of posts by lots of different authors. Lots of interesting comments by the peanut gallery. It seemed like everyone was getting along swimmingly without me, and I was very glad. The thought that I could go on about my life without worrying about the time consuming, energy sucking behemoth that Bad Samaritan has become, well, that made me happy.

Now, I come back from my mental health holiday, only about two weeks since I “left,” and things are in near ruin. In the last two weeks there were two stretches where no one posted for two whole days. There were a lot of twos in that sentence. There have been only 20 comments over the last four days – we’d been averaging about 40 comments a day for the past few months. The regular crew of commentors seems to have dropped off the face of the earth.

What the hell is going on? Where has everyone gone?

I could understand if just a few authors and commentors were missing, but it seems like everyone is slacking off recently. This isn’t just one person’s real life getting in the way, because I know all of you can’t have all gotten lives at the same time. It’s inconceivable.

I’m upset that you primates can’t seem to get along without me. But, it is also sort of nice to know that you primates can’t seem to get along without me. I liked the idea that things could carry on around here with only minimal urgings from me, and that maybe I could take a fucking break every once in a while, without fearing of everything going to hell. But I’m also such a narcissist that I feel much better knowing that that without me here the bustling metropolis that BS is when things are really popping quickly drops lower than radio airplay from the new Dixie Chicks single.

So much of what I do is behind the scenes, and never gets notice. I mean, Linz writes about corrupting a minor and gets 40 comments, but no one would have anything to say if I mentioned how I optimized the scripts on the site so pages now pop faster. This is something that I alternatively don’t, and do mind.

The birthday presents helped a lot, Shannon and David, Josh, Chuck, and Lockheed (stupid post office sent your package back since I wasn’t here the three times they tried to delivered it, but thanks for the thought), and the fact things fall apart around here without me helps, so I guess I’ll just get over my envy. I guess what I’m trying to say is that I’ll get over my weird mental things about this site. Either that, or can just shower me with affection and presents, and I’ll promise to never leave you again. Actually, that sounds much easier, and like a good basis for a healthy relationship, doesn’t it?

comments (17)

Sometimes I wish you DIDN'T have the recent comments thingie because then you see that half the recent comments are semi-literate 14-year-olds that are all in a tither about the Janet Jackson post or that sickos looking for you know what. Subtract these and there's been like six comments recently... And those 6 are mine...

Maybe everyone was startled into overjoyed silence by the recent barrage of female posts?

Sorry MG. I will be out of commission for the next week. I have another brutal class and certification test to make it through. Arrrrrggggghhhh. I fucking hate Logarithms, Acoustics, Decibels, and Ohms Law. I'll be back soon though.

On another note, I met up with Anna and his wife Saturday night. Damn good peeps. We had a great time.

I thought the female posts were damn refreshing Linz. Peace.

by Ezy at April 28, 2003 5:00 PM

Yeah we did. In preparation for that visit my wife and I read all 64, yes 64 comments to Ezy's post about the Satanist babe named Amy. Only to find out that this Amy's no Satanist. Not that there's anything wrong w/ that, mind you.

As far as the commentary issue goes, I just dunno. I got a deluge of comments, some negative, to the posts about gay persons and the one about wars. But when I've posted just regular stuff, nothing provocative, few comments. Yet, your users-meter indicates traffic hasn't changed. Come on folks, let's have a little feedback please.

Somebody shut me up.

by Anna at April 28, 2003 6:25 PM

Well, that's just a little bit more than the law would allow...

by LOCKHEED at April 28, 2003 6:45 PM

i have no feedback, but i have tons of affection.

by sicksider at April 28, 2003 6:55 PM

Well, SICKSIDER, let me present to you the CODES OF AFFECTION: Puppy Love is no better than tylenol. True Love means you worry. And what does one live for? ONE LIVES TO REGRET.

by LOCKHEED at April 28, 2003 7:54 PM

OH, and MG, remember how I trolled myself into BADSAM in the first place? It was over some Sarah Silverman pet dander topic. Well, guess who called me last weekend? Yeah. That little dark haired Jew. I was too busy being genuinely happy with my fiancee to join Ms. Silverman for a drink. I guess she has a place up on the upperwestside too. DO you want her NUMBER MG? I guess that Jimmy Kimmel guy is to GENTILE for her. Huh. She must've dug my hebrew tattoos...

by LOCKHEED p.s. at April 28, 2003 8:03 PM

Lockheed what is up w/ you? What happened to the fiancee and all that? Seems like you're jumping off the deep end here. Though God knows I appreciate your comment to my widely ignored post.

Who? Anna? Yes, lockheed is exhausted. He needs time to rest, or he'll really bury himself and his fiancee with terrible financial debt. Slipping... no more tears left, reservoir dry, cracked pavement... I am going to marry a blue collared girl, the first in her family to get a bachelor's degree, and perhaps the last. lockheed never had a shoulder to lean on, but fiancee has quite the strong shoulder for lockheed. But his pride, his arrogance, it torments him, he is now fully responsible for his inflated ego, he is therefore responsible for all consequences... social status... must maintain, to think, the youngest son, ends up with a worse life biopsychosociallyeconomically than his immigrant china/taiwan parents... not supposed to work this way... and all in my inner circle of unconditonal love, they say that lockheed has to Outlive all of them, including my fiancee, because lockheed is the only one who can handle the loss of loved ones leaving the game of life. Tis true, although it is a responsibility I will never enjoy. Slipping mind, cluttercongestion, must rest, you buy the flowers, I'll place them in the jars.

I would post/visit here more often if it didn't revolve around degenerative comments on sex and construing everything into some kind of cliched innuendo.

Don't get me wrong, i'm just jealous everyone else gets there first.

I still love Bad Sam I've just had little to say latley. Love the girlie stuff. Love the masculine stuff. Keep it coming.

Been on vacations, am I excused?

by necropethamenos at April 30, 2003 9:16 AM

You damn Europeans and your vacations. Damn you're lucky.

by Anna at May 1, 2003 8:08 PM

I was gone because of a slight personal crisis. But if it makes you feel better MG, you can pretend it was due to your absence. :)

When is the BadSam get-together going to be? Does anyone know yet?

I'm hooked! Are we related,or cloned? As i am older, you are alot like me. Enjoy your B S site. Just returned from being abducted and am told we traveled to the planet Zobar. Eighteen magams away. Thank the great COLA ( i call him Pepsi ) they did not probe my anus. They took away my power over their Mo,Mo's though. As it was Mo, Mo's day, they set me free with this
warning............. Never reveal this story or i will be doomed to write about the info. they send through my little gray Bi-polar
cells for ever. I heard later their FOREVER is nine months.

i figured it out. i'm slow, yes, but i figured it out. i *can't* email you back because i setup the new acct on the new servers & all my mail accounts are on that server & so the server has been eating them (they will be in the "main mailbox" if you go into cPanel).

so you don't even know about the new super secret ... things. huh. ok, well, i didn't disappear, for one thing.

the only way to get mail from me is through your cpanel. i can get it from you, but you won't get it from me.

i know, i know.
