The GBBL Adventure Continues…

Being selfish, I was more than happy to see Mike Miles pick up the mantle for North in compiling and maintaining The Gun Blog Black List.   So much so, I wrote a post about it, and linked it in the old North place of honor on my blog.

But it seems nothing is ever uncomplicated.  I received communication from female blog readers that Mike’s version of TGBBL was missing many of the female gunnie’s blogs! As most of the ones I read are friends, I usually access their blogs off my blogroll, so I didn’t notice.  Besides, other male bloggers were missing as well, so I saw Mike’s blog as a work in progress.

I emailed Mike and asked him directly about it.  He responded thus:

 I was rebuilding the list from cached google copies, google removed all references to the original GBBL list and all cached copies. I find it odd that google did this.

Then another female blogger pointed out yet another GBBL variant in the works – Greylocke’s The Gun Blogger List!  And there were already women bloggers resident there.  It too, is a work in progress.

What to do?

As for me, I’m giving them both a few days grace.  Then I’ll decide if one (or both) deserve a blog link on Guffaw in AZ.

Do any of you have an opinion?

No. Mike stole my graphics and copied my content. I’m not too happy that he just copied all of the work that I did.

THIS JUST IN – North has graciously turned over management of GBBL to myself (OldNFO), JayG and two other yet to be named individuals. s/Old NFO

This certain solves the GBBL issue, at least for me! - Guffaw

  1. North is back and says the GBBL is going to be administered by someone else soon.

  2. North had kindly included me in his original list, although my blog is not really about guns. It’s just that they’re part-and-parcel of daily life here in Alaska. However, I notice that my blog isn’t listed on either of the two new sites, so I don’t really have an opinion.

  3. I removed my link when it went down, and I guess I’m going to hold my judgement until the hoopla settles.

FEAR

"I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain." - Bene Gesserit, from Frank Herbert's Dune
