Lisa Minney who turned out to be just another Crook from Crooked County all along gives Juda’s account of betrayal to the WV Secret Seven below!
I don’t know what I did to make that indecipherable connection between me and Calpatty Press three years ago. (See previous post if you are confused.) It’s really hard to tell such things when you don’t even know who they are – screen names, tag-team writers, comments by loyal readers… Never the less, the connection was made, and I fed them any information I had concerning our common enemy, Todd Smith (aka Hot Toddy, scum-bag now in jail). It seems in doing so, I shook hands with the devil, and we’ve somehow been virtually dancing ever since.
There are times in your life when you ask yourself, “How did I get in this situation?” Naturally, that question isn’t the main point to dwell on, although it seems we all linger on that a little too long. The question most important at those times is, “How do I get out?”
I don’t know how many of their readers believe I am (or was) one of CalPatty’s “Secret Seven.” I don’t know how many readers believed anything they wrote – about me, about others, about community concerns, about themselves.
But I do know, that for three years, the CalPatty Press have been dominating our region’s online image — our communal online presentation of our community’s truth. They have gotten more hits and page views than all other blogs in WV combined. Our community’s virtual image has been under the patina of their slanted perspective so that none of us, online or in real life, weren’t soured by it in some way, and also by the huge reach in numbers by the CalPatty Press.
This morning, CalPatty Press was offline. According to WordPress.com, their host server, their blog has been “archived or suspended for a violation of Terms of Service.” I am sure they will attempt to shift their readership over to a sister site, but as far as having the lead in search engines and amount of information online about our county (counties), this has been a critical blow.
I don’t believe I deserve (or want) any credit for this victory.
I am a Virtual Jackie O. I’m a writer in my pajamas, drinking cold coffee, with garden dirt under my fingernails and a tangled pony tail.
My meager attempts to “make it stop” failed early last week when CalPatty was only temporarily frozen. I don’t know if I started a ball rolling, or if attempts from others further slandered on their site than I finally came to fruition. I don’t know if some other person, out there somewhere had the muscle to remove this mountain. I only know that two days ago I was feeling rather deflated about it, disappointed, disgruntled.
Oh, how I hate to lose. And in my attempt to win, I had made things worse. I had done all I knew to do – – and failed.
And so, as so many of us do when we have exhausted all other options… I troubled the Almighty.
(Something I try not to do unless it’s really, really important.)
“Lord, just make it gone.”
Twice I asked; on Sunday evening, and again on Monday evening.
This morning, at 5 a.m. CalPatty Press was still there. Then, there was a clap of thunder that shook the house and took out the power, followed by a really scary electrical storm.
When the power came back on – CalPatty Press was gone.
My communication with WordPress could not have been the only complaint about the site. Mine could not have been the only prayer request concerning it, nor could mine have been the first in three years. I would not presume my words or my prayers to be any more important than anyone else’s.
But, because I so rarely ask His help, and because my prayers were answered, I am compelled to give credit where I believe it is due.
Amen. Thank-you, God!
