Well, well...take a look at this.
It seems one anti-jihadi site just bit the dust. That's very strange indeed, giving the age of the web site. Bare Naked Islam has been around for quite some time, and Wordpress just discovered it violates "terms of service"?
That sounds a little fishy to me. Maybe the Islamists Coalition for the Silencing of America has gotten a victory? Could be....
Of course there is no coalition, at least not yet, but I'm sure the Islamists are dancing for joy to see one major site is now down. I'll be willing to bet you a dozen donuts and a coffee, that this won't be the only site to "sleep wit da fishes".
To be perfectly honest with you, I have no sympathy with the owners of this site. Why? You may ask? Well, I'll tell you.
It really isn't anything big, but actually something very minute. But it was enough to turn me off of the site forever. And all I wanted to do was to swap links. That's it, just swap our site addresses.
I sent in a very nice and complimentary e-mail to the web master of Bare Naked Islam praising how superb the web site is maintained. I always have to lavish a site with compliments before I dump the request on them. After the praises I suggest BNI swap links with the ITF.....should be a no brainer now....right?
The webmaster comes back the next day and tells me..."Thank you for the very nice compliment. I appreciate that, but I really don't need to place more links on my site that contain the same subject matter as what I already have."
What? What did she say? "same subject matter"??? Now where I come from, I always believed that if we stood together we have a better chance for victory. Strength in numbers and all of that. I can see if I ran a porno web site that she can reject us, but we don't. The ITF is anti-jihad just like BNI and a thousand others. I wish more web site owners would come to me and ask to swap links.
I touched on this subject a couple of months back, when I had to deal with a snippy web site. It seems the swelling of an owners head grows in tandem with the popularity of ones web site. The bigger the site, the bigger the ego. At risk of pissing off some of the large site owners, I won't mention their names.
I hope my head never swells that large where I tell some smaller site to "get lost". If I ever do.....its time to quit. In the meantime I will enjoy our relationship with some of the best anti-jihadi web sites on the net. 1389, Blazing Cat Fur, Tundra Tabloids, The Jawa Report, Women Against Shariah and many many others. I can't list them all here, but they are all important, informative and very professional sites.
So sleep tight Bare Naked Islam. Give me a call when you get started up again. Maybe....we can do lunch. Or...maybe we can swap links.
