Hopefully my last post on this (crossed fingers)
On Aaron's advice, I have decided to erase the enemies list. I trust his advice, although I don't think it's the best thing to do myself. My problem right now is that I really don't see any other way to attract eyeballs than the two atheist carnivals we have, and creating controversy. Although I'd like to be friend with anyone, I still think we can be controversial and question each other without personal attacks. But it seems I'm wrong on that, if I am to believe the results of my attempts so far.
The fact is, as long as this blog is snubbed or attacked by big-time bloggers like Raving Atheist or Evangelistic Atheist, it'll never go anywhere. I think that's pretty clear by now. Carnivals have a long-lasting effect, but it is relatively small, and controversy seems to make the situation worse.
Seth on Kindgom of Heathen thinks I made the right decision by taking off the "shit list", and agrees about Raving Atheist. I have to say I'm pretty happy to see someone actually acknowledge what's going on and concede that I'm not an imbecile. Thank you Seth for your even-handed support.
So where does this lead us ? Well, I have plenty of great future entries in store (right now my drafts extend to early April), and that's never gonna change. This blog is here to stay. Whether it'll have any impact on anything is another matter.
