Culling The List

I want to let everyone know that I will soon be doing a personal examination of my blog’s subscriber list to “weed out” possible sycophants who might possibly be connected to the hacking attempts which have plagued this website for the last few weeks.  So in the interest of cleaning up the list I will be “sanitizing” it very soon – probably over the weekend.

As part of the process, I will be sending an email to all those who are possible candidates for deletion from the list.  SOOOOO – if you get an email saying that you are being dropped – and you DON’T WANT TO BE DROPPED – please respond to the email and let me know that you still want to remain on the list.  I may not be able to tell just by the appearance of the email address whether you are a “legit” or not.  Some are easy to tell, but not all.  Many of you I have corresponded with, either through email or the comment sections of a post or article, so any of those email addresses that I do recognize won’t be in danger of deletion.  But PLEASE don’t be offended if I SHOULD recognize your email address and don’t.  I’ll blame it on age and just beg your pardon in advance. 🙂

When I put up the new site (Wow! I think it’s been almost 2 years ago now!) much of the content was lost.  This includes blog posts, articles, and writing samples, as well as a lot of the “behind the scenes” stuff,  so if you remember the old site, then you were subscribed before the change was made and you managed to survive the transition.  This time I will be doing that part manually, so there won’t be any accidental deletions but I don’t want to make you re-subscribe if you didn’t want to be deleted.  You WOULD though, if need be. . . right? 🙂

What might be really helpful – is if you would post a comment to THIS PAGE to let me know you want to stay on the list.  Nothing fancy, long or elaborate is necessary – just a “please keep me on your list” comment is sufficient, unless you have more to say – and then, BY ALL MEANS, comment to your heart’s content.  I always enjoy hearing from you.  You will also have the opportunity to respond by email though.

THANKS FOR STICKING AROUND all this time – especially through the “dry spell” of the last several months.   I hope you’ll feel it was worth it in the months to come.
