Always Another Site

Not to mourn when one is kicked off a web site, as there is always another

Ancient History

There was a time, way back in the early days of the Internet where there might be just one website dealing with your interests.

You might have spent hours searching, for there was no 'Google' there was not even a 'Yahoo.'

To Find the Site was proof of your hacking skills and you were so happy to be there you were on the verge of tears.

You'd join, read the rules, try to follow them, and move onto the site full time. You had a strong interest and involvement and were virtually committed to keeping that site functioning.

To be kicked off that site was so painful it was like being thrown out of your home with only the clothes you are wearing.

That Was Then

To paraphrase Qui-Gon Jinn: "There's always a Bigger Fish".

There is always another Web Site.

Being banned from a site doesn't mean rat puke. The next is a click away.

Sites with too many rules and restrictions become hitless then pointless.

Why bother join or participate in a site where one has to constantly police one's self when there are hundreds without 1001 Rules?

Just a Taste

The above image is just a portion of what are called social networking sites. As you can see, there are a few.

Writing Sites are currently proliferating. A Google turns up lists of sites. You can join as many as you want or as few. You have no loyalty to any. And none have loyalty to you.

The other day I had written something for Xomba. This is a must avoid site, which I will review in time.

It doesn't pay anything and I used it for storage purposes, mostly short fiction..

I went to save my item and alas, picked the wrong category, so I was Banned.

Read the sentences again if you think you missed something, but trust me, I was banned because I went to save a perfectly good article in the wrong category.

Does it matter?
Of course not.

There's always another site.

No matter what your interest, no matter how esoteric there is more than one site available. You just have to find them.

Thanks Steve. It's true today. In the old days, it was devastating, today, shrug.

When you have too much facts and references and quotes, Triond rejects the article as being 'too like' the information your are referencing. Always dumb down articles for Triond. Leave out the quotes and the facts; paraphrase them.

The application that is used at Triond is garbage.
