Blog Policy: What Chris Said

Amanda says F*** Ritual Condemnation and links to Chris at Faultline's post on blog policy, which I will quote here in part because it's just so bloody cool:

... I reserve the right to:

— Delete any or all content from this website at any time for any reason. ...

— Sell this domain to any person or corporation I choose for any reason at any time. ...

— Link to anything I choose. ...

— Disavow any implied endorsement of anyone who links to or mentions this site in any manner. ... In fact, I reserve the right to:

— Refrain from participating in ritualistic condemnations of the bad thing that everyone else is upset about this week. Because really, that shit is boring as hell, ...

I recommend reading it all to get the dirty, dirty details, but am stating for the record that if anyone wasn't aware, we here at PV have always sort of assumed that we had those rights over the content we create.

Also, these comments at the Pandagon link deserve an honorable mention for really getting into the spirit:

Dan - I condemn those who condemn the condemners.

Ritually, of course. ...

DJA - I hereby condemn the condmenable petit-bourgeois condemners in the Pandagonian Ritual Condmener’s Front and ask all authentically enlightened condemners to side with the Pandagonians for Ritual Condemnation in our righteous condemnation of these treacherous false condemners. ...

I will here pause to condemn senseless blog wars* and state my ardent refusal to delink anybody who's been delinked or delinking in the latest several rounds of arguments that you don't want to know about if you didn't already know about them. I'm grievously ticked that at least one of these disputes involves people that I in no way desire to choose between, but I've also found a couple of interesting, new-to-me blogs during the process.

* If you were there to remember, yes, I'm at one with the irony. At one, I tell you. It's quite a boost to my meditation practice, such as it is. If you weren't there, be glad the knowledge isn't tying up any extra neurons and leave it at that.
