Spanking Dave

Being an internet vandal is bad, mmmkay? Not only is it pointlessly destructive , but it can also hurt the ones you love.

    I’m wondering if you agree with Bacchus on the issue of deleting one’s information from the internet for personal reasons. I read the whole rant and all one hundred comments and arguments that followed it, and am left, still, unsure as to whom I agree with. Did you post this because you agree with Bacchus?

  2. Dave commented on August 15th, 2006:

    SpankBoss – not read Bacchus’ rant yet but just so you know Am and I are moving our blogs together onto one blog at Feel free to drop by.

    And yeah, I know that nuking the blog was a bad thing, but depression can fuck with you sometimes when you least expect it – especially when you’ve been seeming to cope with it for a while m’kay?

    Ahh, just read Bacchus’ rant – back from when Brett & Hiromi packed up their blog. I swore I wouldn’t do that back when I read the rant originally, and there’s me going and vandalising the internet…

    I’m recovering back as many of the more important “historical” posts to the new blog as I can, but all the ‘filler’ posts like “new weblog at xxx added to the links” can go *phut* forever – they weren’t exactly important!

    I have lost the two “Caning 101” posts – you or Bethie haven’t got them saved away somewhere have you? ((hopeful look))

    Maddie, I did, and I do.

    Dave, glad to see you are bringing back some of your posts. Of course, you’ve still broken every link anyone ever made to your stuff.

    Sadly, I don’t have either of the Caning 101 posts, and they didn’t come up easily in the Google cache, although a smarter person than I might still manage to find them there.

    Err in haste, repent in leisure, sigh.

    Dave, one of your comments got stuck in moderation, so I hadn’t seen it when I posted my last.

    I understand about doing things in a bad moment that you regret. But you’ve got backups, you could fix most of the damage, but I understand you’ve chosen not to? And that you are asking Am to delete most of her old work and move the rest, breaking all her old links too? That’s a *huge* slap in the face to anyone who ever linked to any of that material, and a tremendous big pile of vandalism. I wish you’d reconsider. Start a new joint blog, sure, but leave the old ones up with a pointer to the new one. Don’t be a vandal, I beg you.

    SB – I’m importing all the old posts from the backup that I do have back to typepad at the moment, but it will be missing posts made between 5th March and the three posts that are there at present. Also any photos in posts and photogalleries are gone I’m afraid.

    I was referring to Am pruning the really old posts on the NEW blog, not on her old one. Apologies for not making that clear.

    Oh, good, that’s a relief.
