You know, you'd think that my trying to create a nice atmosphere in blogging would be getting through by now.
I am guessing as a direct response to my questioning the idea of the BBC documentary, a certain Higher Up has decided to indulge in a bit of a childish "get your own back".
But are they actually able to have the guts to pull me up on it?
They have decided it's a far better idea to start on my Other Half.
This is an open "letter" if you will, to them. If you have the power to, please pass it on, they have thus far decided that rather than explain their actions, they'd rather take the cowards option and be ignorant.
So, please, I'll post all comments on this.
It doesn't seem to matter how many of us say "enoughs, enough" and try and stand up to these bullies who think themselves immune from answering for their actions.
But if an actions worth doing, its worth explaining too, right?
I'm sorry to bang on, but why pick on my partner- whats he done? I actually found out about the BBC thing from TWITTER (and here is my reply). He has his own blog (yeah, he might not post very often, but he has one, he's learning and he jumps in when a topic takes him. He's a busy guy). He writes reviews for Family Panel. So, why is he excluded? I mean, bloody hell, I thought you had to disagree with the person involved before they had an excuse to chuck you. Now it appears you just have to breathe.
The only thing I could see he may have got chucked for? Because in the week, he popped onto the site and without warning could no longer access some of the groups. Some of his posts had gone too, like when he posted about the Family Panel's latest competition. Remember at this point, that he is a big part of Family Panel.
So he, sent a message to ask why. That's his right, surely?
When he was ignored (and again its that, if its worth doing its worth explaining thing again), he posted a discussion asking if the same had happened to anyone else. Nothing wrong with that.
And miraculously, he was reinstated.
He hasn't posted anything on the site from then until now (no more than 4 days).
Now, he's been removed. No excuse, no explanations. At least I got an email. Granted it was a poor excuse given, or excuses as for every reason given I quashed it. But at least I was told why, regardless of the absurdity of it.
Well, you know what.
The Mummy bit of my title of Mummy Blogger is out of here. I am a blogger. Because for every ten lovely, amusing and talented parents you get in the self styled "community" there is one who feels it necessary to come in like some whip role in a parliament, and who seems to enjoy nothing more in their tedious lives than being nasty to people.
I think its time we named and shamed these people who seek to batter people's confidence, why should we keep quiet? There is this feeling that we have no right to point out the people responsible. But where does this stem from?
Its complete playground antics, and well, I want no further part of it.
I am a writer, who happens to be a Mum. And I'm damned if I'm going to let anyone destroy me.
