Weekly Round-Up

08Jul13

bend kneel crwod corner time exposedAs I write it is hot. Why can’t we take the cool spring and mix it up with this summer and have it sunny and warm? At least the warm weather is an excuse to spend a Saturday on a pub jetty in the Pool of London while the waves crash under ones feet.

The beer was cool and the wine chilled, so we kicked back with a new fellow blogger and an old blog reader. One wonders what the other patrons made of our conversation.

Speaking of things getting hot; several more blogs have bitten the dust due to the current attack on the spanking community. Recently the successful More Than Hurts Me has reinvented itself as The Penitents.

In response to increased pressure from hosting comapnies I have deleted or edited a number of comments and I know that has offended one or two people. Just to give everyone the heads up – almost anything that comments on 18+ female spankees is cool. But remember robots are watching – so certain words can alarm their master’s in a search troll; these days ‘beware the troll’ is very appropriate advice. It is just a question of battening down the hatches until the storm passes. So let’s not have anything that involves under 18-year-olds (even our younger selves) and not wishing to censor anyone but consecutive long posts that are completely off topic run the risk of unbalancing discussion.

Just to complicate things further, some posts seemed to auto delete when I hold them for editing – hence the appearance and disappearance of some comments. It has even dumped one of my own in this way. It must be the heat.

On to more blogs: the pictures above are from Cutie Pie, Spank Bryan, Beauty and the Birch, the Penitents and Hermione, where you are invited to supply a caption.

For stories: Rollin has the Menace from Mongo and Kia has a short over at Acknowledging Imperfection.

    I find it ironic that as there is this growing (not just conservative) movement to bring back corporal punishment in homes and schools (even in law) and the popularity of the sell out of our community with “50 Shades” there is also this movement to attack our community. What the heck is going on here?

    Sounds like a lovely way to spend a warm Saturday. Thanks for link 🙂

    If there are certain words that trigger the robots, that would be helpful to know. Although I suppose if you used them to warn us, then that would be a problem. Conundrum.

      That is exactly the point.

      It is a matter of common sense and not using words like those used to describe those not 18+ or specific words that intrinsically mean non-consent.

      I am being over sensitive I think (I hope?) but some of the blog closures have been in explicable.

      This will pass – it always does. I think maybe because of 50 Shades more people who don’t get it are looking and (complaining?)

      Kia – welcome 🙂

        Just as the original Luddites did the Moral Luddites can temporarily disrupt things but they can’t permaently stop the world from advancing.

        Yeah, I think you’ve got a point about 50 Lampshades of Grey. But my thought is that there are a number of men who, their brides or partners having read it, are now finding themselves expected to provide more than their customary mish-in-the-dark-once-a-month-after-Red-Lobster minimum they’ve been getting away with. And they’re a little pissed.

    although sometimes it feels as if we are advancing backwards. 😉

    I thought it was the blogs that receive money for “adult” advertising that were in danger?

    Sometimes there’s other reasons for blogs closing.

    Just sayin, is all.

  7. I agree with everyone and like the pictures too.
