Irritant

I know from my experience in retail that many people are not courteous. I don't know why I'm surprised that some bloggers aren't courteous, either.

Because I am the Ch√Ętelaine for the Alliance's blog, I became the Membership Mistress by default (being the only one who could create and modify blogrolls). I really don't have a problem with that. What irks me, though, is the number of bloggers who decide they are tired of playing and don't bother notifying me when they take down the logo and fake quote. I'm guessing maybe one out of forty has the courtesy to submit a resignation. A few of the bloggers I recently purged joined only weeks ago!

Why would you go to all the trouble to add our logo and fake quote to your template, and email me for membership, only to turn around and yank them a short time later? I don't get it.

Make it known that if they don't inform you, you will burn their homes, salt their fields and enslave their women and children.

Most people have the attention span of a small rodent; many bloggers are even less gifted. ;)

I get it. Free access to a humongous blogroll without any heavy lifting. Dump the minimal requirements after you're added and you're home free. At least, that's my guess.
