Someone Is Complaining About ARAVOSISblog

Two days ago, someone--I have no idea who--filed a complaint with about this blog. There is an accusation on the table that what we do here might be confused with another blog out there--which is hard to believe, because no one else is performing the vital service we provide here at ARAVOSISblog. I took immediate additional steps to make the mission of this site crystal clear, and I replied to to ask if we now fall within their guidelines--because I DO want to comply--but I have not heard back yet.

The original message from stated that if corrective action were not taken, they would delete ARAVOSISblog on Friday (tomorrow). As I'm sure you know, this would be a tragedy beyond all proportions. I don't think they'd delete ARAVOSISblog without first replying to my e-mail, but I wanted to warn my loyal readers so that if Johnny goes bye-bye with no warning, you'll know what happened.

UPDATE: Thank you all for your concern. I think we'll be fine--surely they know that I'm an A-list blogger, right? But on the off chance that some hypocrite convinces Blogger/Google to act like communists, I will reappear again somewhere else. I'll be nowhere and everywhere, Tom Joad-style. (But you can always find me here.)

Where has Everydayactivism gone, I ask? Glitch or the omnipotent power of A-list poltiical bloggers?

Whoever filed that complaint (Gee, I wonder?) is no doubt annoyed at the support you inspire, not to mention the monetary donations pouring in to this far superior site.

Besides, Blogger isn't the only game in town.

I remember it well, back when bannedtogether formed, and John went after each and every team blog member.

The vile curs! Disgusting, filthy fools! The fate of democracy hangs in the balance. Whose eye will be on the ball? Who will impart cutting edge, a-list, upper-echelon commentary to those of us in our ignorant gay-vernacular-illiterate e-wilderness who are so deprived?

No Aravosisblog? Surely you jest. I die a thousand deaths at the very thought...

This is a 100,000 person a day blog. It's not some volunteer project on local cable access. I think we have an obligation to our readers and the issues we care about to do it right. And that means doing it professionally and making sure it works.

Too funny, John writes his own parody.

Amazing, isn't it? Someone has taken his eye off the ball to complain about this site? Say it isn't so! Democracy, itself, hangs in the balance! The ball will get away! What kind of freak would obsess about the existence of this site and endanger our country with his inattention to important matters?

I distinctly remember someone saying some such nonsense recently. Golly, gee, no hypocrisy there. Nope. Pffft.

What a hypocritical coward.

The only way you might not get away with this is that John Aravosis IS A LIVING PARODY!

Did Aravosis write that on Americablog because if he did, he really ought to re-read this post, which is an absolute embarrassment to blogtopia.

But I've stayed here too long. There are balls to eye. As Janet said, they may get away.

Yes, he really wrote that.

Last year, when the entire Andrew Sullivan fiasco went down, he was a "50,000 a day" uber-blog. Now he has doubled his size (and not just waste size) in little under a year.

Americablog, a blog on steroids! (Overblown and bloated, like John in a tux!)

eRobin, way to go eyeing those balls! Here's $50 for you too.

And Johnnie A., for managing to avoid ending this sentence with a preposition, here's another $50:

"the Congressional Black Caucus (CBC), an institution that doesn't have a lot of respect in the Democratic circles I hang."

This can't be a real A-list blog. I'm out of here!

I'm giving my $50 straight over to the Cause because I'm afraid that I can't be trusted to keep my eye on the ball with sufficient vigilance.

Look what John doesn't remove!

""He's even cuter in person."

Is that all gay men every think about?"

"No. We think about global warming (more guys in swimsuits), the homeless (they look hot when their clothes fall off), hunger among adolescents (they could lose a few pounds, if you ask me), the war in Iraq (GIs are hot!), and the threat of thermonuclear war (when the bomb is 15 minutes away,I'm raping the nearest hot 18 year old)."

What the hell, totally offensive, but not removed. Come on John, are you now equating being gay with being shallow and a rapist????

6:07 PM  
Blogger eRobin said...

Anyone have a link to that "obligation to do it right" quote? I can't find it and I don't like to post stuff based soley on information I get from the circles in which I hang. I'm funny that way.

John really annoys me, but hey thanks to me and that Jeff Gannon person, John made a name for herself. I mean himself. Ooops, I almost called John a girl.

Too many changes. Losing the parody. Are you being intimidated? Parody is protected speech, right? Everything John gets will be brought upon himself. Too bad. Since when are the colors red, white and blue copyrighted?

erobin - You can find my quote about my obligation to my readers and the issues HERE. (I should really stop wasting so much of my genius in the comment section.)

David, I had been thinking about making a change to purple since I am blog royalty... but nothing's set in stone. I'm experimenting. Thanks for the feedback.

John Aravosis, on a regular month will make something like $12,000 OR MORE on advertising and have next to nothing (if anything at all) in expenses because he is a cheeap bastard who thinks he has the cult of followers fooled (actually he does.)

But you know - since she's an A-List Blogger - she's got to live to a certain standard. So everyone needs to cough up their extra nickels, dimes, $100 bills etc. every month so she can live better than the rabble that worship her.

It is impressive to see how he's got everyone fooled into thinking he's some starving liberal. Yeah, right.

I expect that he'll be unsuccessful at ending this PARODY blog. He can dish it out, but he sure can't take it.

I'll be happy to help any way I can. Thanks for having the courage to step up to the plate and call it like it is.

JOHNNY, you left out the best part of your quote: "...And as I said, my tech guy is brilliant, and I'm no slouch either,..."

Don't be so shy next time! But, hey, I'll send in another check for such modesty.

10:54 PM  
Anonymous Anonymous said...

If you want the best example of just how far you can go with a parody blog, check out Because John Aravosis has made him,self a "public figure/celebrity" as an A-List blogger, he has opened himself up to it and has little recourse to stuff like this, other than stupid threats.

When went up, Lynne Cheney wasn't flattered with the public profile page they put up about her with bad photos and foul quotes etc., Dick Cheney sicked his lawyers on them and they told them to basically fuck off. Then they "censored" her profile page to make her even look more ridiculous (the clown noses, etc.)

Note their "Legal Disclaimer" at the top of her profile page. Use it as a guide. Keep it coming. Good luck to you.

Hey could you further insult my intelligence? I didn't realize this was parody until I saw the repetitive parody banners across the top.

You know what would make it even more accurate? If you posted, like, three appeals for donations followed immediately by a fabulous trip to Amersterdam for a superimportant blogger confab.

Listen to Princess Sparkle Pony- her ideas are right on the mark.
