Grrrrr Turrrrr…

~or “mittens plugs his wittle ears…”

I rarely ever comment … hell I rarely ever READ anything on The Mittani much less comment on the blatant Null-Coalitions-are GOOD-for-You-and-Are-the-End-Game-of-EVE-centric writing there... I am not a fan of the Coalitions or Goonswarm or even das mittens himself himself as anyone who reads me knows or even of Nullsuck as I calls it…

Actually, I should not say that I hate nullsec… ‘cause that is not true, I hate the nullsec that the CFC and other coalitions have created. I actually would love to fly the skies of a free and interesting for all nullsec… but that is not what we have today… no, we have the Big Blue Doughnut. A name so indicative of the actual conditions there that nullseccers themselves use it. 

Anyhoo, I do peruse the site fom time to time and I was reading The Jump Changes: Average Time To Fun, by FearlessLittleToaster, a bit of a rantfest against the Jump Drive Changes coming in Phoebe. And I was stirred to add my .2 ISK when this happened… 


I have been blocked by The Mittani. I am shocked. Not that they can do it, a blog is not a Journalistic New Source no matter what lies they tell you… it’s supposed to be a personal web log… though The Mittani site does act and try to look like a Respectable Upstanding News Magazine more than just a mouthpiece blog for mittens. I find it interesting when, in the “About” on The Mittani ‘they’ say…

“We hope to provide as balanced a view as possible, so that those on all sides of Eve’s conflicts can come here for information, even if they sometimes disagree with the analysis of one writer or another.”
Except when we ‘really’ disagree with you, then we don’t allow you to talk at our table. Once you censor anyone’s voice, well, so much for any pretenses about ‘Balance’.

Also, I found this of note…
“…there are places you can go to find out about Eve.  But the ones with intelligent commentary tend to be forums, and those tend to be daunting for the non-member…” 

The forums FFS?! Makes you wonder a bit about the quality and actual intelligence of the unnamed ‘they’ who wrote that… I mean ANYONE who has spent five minutes in the forums knows they are 80% trolls, 15% wannabe trolls with mebbe 5% actually worth reading… IE good luck.

No it’s not that they could block me (itsa blog), or even that they would block me (the light of open discussion oft discloses that which lurks in the dark places)... it’s that someone, someone at The Mittani itself itself, took enough umbrage at my writing to actually do so.

Now I know I am not the only one, but it sorta feels good knowing they noticed… you know?  But… well, oh looky here, I seem to have my own blog… so my comments got posted anyway…   =P

Always remember, “If they’re shooting at you, you must be doing something right.” 


Fly Wreckless and see you in the Sky  =/|)=
