Uppity blogger who thinks that linking to JankyVision automatically merits a reciprocal link has another thing coming

An Editorial by Editor Emeritus Emeril Edatorre

Rival blogger and self-described Easily Discouraged Man "Gary" (if that is in fact his real name) recently posted a link to JankyVision, extolling its virtue as a funny site.

Well, if this Gary character thinks that just because he (or she, or they) placed a link to our site that we will return the favor, he is sorely mistaken.

This 'Easily Discouraged Man' site is obviously a thinly veiled attempt to copy the JankyVision approach to blogging, with the obvious exception that Gary's blog covers actual things happening in the real world written from a smart perspective in the subjects of writing, cartooning, sweet tips, art and other subjects. Apparently, this guy also runs Coloroado's premiere speculative fiction crossword site. Whatever that is.

JankyVision is a meticulously researched proprietary process, and our board of directors will not be cowed or cajoled into the "feel good" climate of linking to sites that one thinks would be interesting to one's readers.

We mention Easily Discouraged Man as an admonition to any happy-go-lucky types out there who may think that giving us free and unsolicited publicity will not go swiftly and decisively reprimanded. We further warn you against going to Gary's irreverent and socially conscious T-Shirt Shoppe, of which part of the proceeds go to the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation.
