A longtime reader – out of respect for privacy, I won’t divulge the name – sent me an e-mail this morning explaining why the reader will no longer visit the blog, removed SYLG’s bookmark, and why I am probably going to Hell.
You used to do police stories, funny stories, news stories, entertainment stories (Star Wars, etc) with the occasional hot babe thrown in the mix. For the past several months, your blog has turned into a regular pinup collection. Seriously, go back and count how many pictures you posted a year ago, and look at one of the past few months and compare numbers. I don’t know how your wife feels about this, but it really irritates my wife, and I don’t need to be tempting myself with looking at women who aren’t my wife, and that’s why I haven’t been frequenting your blog.
The reader then quoted a verse from the Gospel of Matthew concerning adultery which ends with “Your whole body to be thrown into Hell.” The reader continues…
That seems pretty clear to me that if I am going to be faithful to my wife, I need to not frequent places where nudity and partial nudity are prominently displayed. Unfortunately your blog is now one of those places. And so I have removed your blog from my bookmarked page. Please let me know if you ever decide to go back to your former habits of posting news and entertainment stories without posting half-naked photos along with them.
So… yeah. I have a few thoughts here, and while I probably didn’t sufficiently calm myself before writing this, I’ll do my best to rein in my emotions.
First off, I may be wrong, but I don’t believe I amped up the babe pics in the last few months. In fact, I think I’ve posted less. Sure, I post a photo of Vica with every USMC article, but they are rarely half-naked.
Second, I have pretty much completely banned politics posts here. They angry up the blood, and at this point, what more can be said about the downfall of America? Without politics, I’m limited in my post selections, so I have decided to post about family, work (occasionally), entertainment, and bizarre stories.
Finally, if you find the content here lacking – or worse, sinful – you are free to leave at any time. Readers – even ones who were close friends – have left this blog before, never to return. Most of them didn’t send me an e-mail detailing what a scumbag sinner I have become. Obviously, I would like to keep as many readers as possible, but If you want to go… go. Just don’t stab me in the back as you walk out the door.
I’d like everyone’s input on the reader’s primary point; that SYLG has become a den of half-naked iniquity. That said, please don’t rip the reader in the comments section.
