Spanking Blogs Gone

I always worry when spankos go off the air suddenly and without explanation, as most of them seem eventually to do. Hair Brush Action was a fun spanking blog that went 404 without warning a couple of months ago. And La Fess‚ is gone now, without much explanation (and without responding to my offer to mirror the old posts to keep them on the web).

I hope both those guys just got high-maintenance spanko girlfriends, and had to drop their blogs because their spanking arms were too sore to type. Sorry to see them go.

    and where did Grumbles and primal scream go????? They were just there last weekend…

  2. Spankboss commented on March 10th, 2005:

    Doh! I hadn’t even noticed they were gone, yet.

    I just don’t get it — why are people so hasty to delete their blogs?

    I always wonder if it’s because someone found it that they hadn’t thought of, sadly. But with the wayback machine, taking it off the air really doesn’t help. Once you are out there, you are out there. Stay out and proud is my theory.

  4. Spankboss commented on March 10th, 2005:

    Exactly — between the wayback machine and the google cache, there’s simply no benefit to taking down a site.

  5. patty commented on March 10th, 2005:

    what’s a way back machine?

  6. Spankboss commented on March 10th, 2005:

    It’s this: a permanent archive of pretty much every webpage that’s existed for the last ten years or so.

  7. patty commented on March 10th, 2005:

    Oh…cool… but, NOPE…. checked a bunch of topics and names…. they’re not there….. Not even Grumbles is there… (and I really was looking forward to plundering his mind too….)

    I ain’t worried.. Betcha google ain’t even so permanent… unless of course you’re a newsgroup poster and want to dissapear…. fat chance… not even trolls can dissapear from newsgroups….LOLOLOL

    Well, the Wayback Machine does have a lot of holes in it, but they are always digging up archives from various places and adding them in. So Grumbles may show up there two years from now, off a backup tape donated by some other archiver. Ya never know.

    Both sites will delete their caches of websites if requested. There are forms if you dig around. Yahoo is not as friendly, but they cache less.

    I unfortunately found this out because my [soon-to-be]-x decided to use my blog against me in our divorce, to try to justify his assertion that I was an unfit parent.

    Fortunately, he appears to be losing, but it was freakish and terrifying to have him accusing me of being evil for things tamer than the stuff we were doing together a year ago. And I do not at all like that my blog, which I worked painstakingly to keep anonymous, is now inextricably linked to me through public documents.

    I originally started LaFessee as a hobby. Thanks to many wonderful people, it grew to be a very successful spanking site. As I stated in the last post before LaFessee was taken down, personal and professional considerations prevent me from spending the time neccessary to maintain LaFessee at the high level that I expected and that my readers enjoyed.

    SpankBoss posted that “La Fess‚e is gone now, without much explanation (and without responding to my offer to mirror the old posts to keep them on the web).” First, I didn’t realize I was required to expand on the considerations that led me to my decision. For those who are curious, I was not outed, discovered, or otherwise found by folks who created any problems. Second, while I appreciated the mirror offer, if LaFessee was to survive, it reuired ongoing content additions. I am unable to do that now.

    SpankBoss was very helpful to me when I first started, and I am indebted to him for that. Perhasps the fact that I am responding to this post 12 days after it was placed provides some evidence of my time crunch (franky, this is the first time in 3-4 weeks I have looked at any blogs).

    LaFessee may return if I can commit to staying on top of it. When that may be is way up in the air.

    Respectfully,
    Paul

    Paul, you seem to have missed several of my points. ;-)

    Obviously you are under no obligation to respond to email or justify your actions, and your blog was yours to do what you want with. But taking a blog off the web breaks every link that ever got made to it. It’s very destructive of the structure of the internet, and my point is simply that there’s no need for it. A moribund site is *vastly* better than a gone site.

    Just my opinion, of course — obviously you disagree. But I still don’t understand your position, or that of the many people who agree with you. What is the vital need to break hundreds of links, just because the site is not being updated?
