From October 5, 2015 till ***(?)*** this blog was Private-Access Only (“GONE”). Many posts added after October 5, 2015 originally appeared here without having an audience.

“I’ve stepped back from engaging the issue with information, and from the “information war” in general. Even took my blog down, likely for good. “
“Wow! I’m stunned. Your voice was one of the clearest and most thoughtful. How can we ever hope to educate the people if those with real data and the stones to say it back away?“
– D., an apparently disappointed blog fan in Alaska, in an Oct. 25, 2015 email, responding to my view above.
As I put it elsewhere:
“http://nuclearcrimes.org/ was a far better site than mine. Andrew pulled the plug too. A loss? I thought so, for sure. (Rig Rad Run is a good read, though) Does not having his blog around make a difference? Not fundamentally.
Here take this in: http://www.world-nuclear.org/info/Current-and-Future-Generation/Plans-For-New-Reactors-Worldwide/ […]“
A screenshot of an excerpt of that link above, for the record…:
Response from a fan [w/ my emphasis], J.:
“[…] if all the good people — not even all — did that, we would be fucked. fucked. the people that were new to the game might as well slit their throats. operate on their own thyroids prophylactically with a rusty knife.
as much as i knew on 3/11 was nothing compared to what i know now. how did i learn it? from people like you. […] it is the education of the rest of us that is at stake. and in my opinion we are all seriously the poorer for not having your blog open and accessible […] and i am not the only one. i found out about your having gone dark from someone else, who referred to it as your having pulled the rug out from under all of us, and who figures what’s the point, and is themselves giving up, no longer posting.
[…] the unsuspecting clueless individual just arriving on the scene, now or because of some future bullshit, has a much harder time of it because of this, and that much harder time translated directly into units that measure quality or length of life. […] think about that, please; please reinstate your blog to the world. […]”
I don’t think it’s possible to use a rusty knife and still consider the operation being carried out “prophylactically“, as “prophylactical” means, “intended to prevent disease”, but anyhow… I appreciate the dramatic tone. My sentiment about my blog, in the grand scheme of things, can be summed up as this, however:
“Our scribbles online are like cats chasing a laser point. They got it covered […] We are merely providing some entertainment.“
In that vein, occassionally friends remind me, by disrespectfully pointing their smartphones / de facto surveillance cameras towards me, that the miltary-industrial platform for data mining, full-spectrum surveilance, biometrics database building and behavior modification, aka ‘facebook’, is also still mildly entertaining…
Meanwhile, I find it hard to believe people don’t give a sh•t about freedom, privacy or true democracy, all of which don’t have the slightest chance of ever (re-)emerging with manipulated social media as part of the communications fabric of a society… But all that viewpoint has accomplished is further isolation, all while mainstream society revs up its mad momentum… Anyhow… I’m unplugging from the whole internet thing. One step at a time. This blog post may be one of my last… But then again… I’ve felt this way before, and came back… So I suppose: we’ll see…

The main reason I cut my blog off on October 5, is a feeling, or combination of feelings, including a sense of utter pointlessness, questions about the nature of the medium itself, as well as a pinch of quasi-paranoia. [But on the latter, just in case it’s NOT actually unfounded, that “paranoid part” I won’t even touch on.]
There some other side-“reasons”, though, like…
[Not sure why I would even write this, ’cause if I keep my blog ‘private’, no one else besides “me, myself and I” will read this anyhow… Hm…
Maybe I’m just decompressing from a 4+ year-long blogging quasi-addiction… and thís post is just a spasm on the road to full-stop. I hope so…]
For starters, it’s much more beautiful in the real world!
Now THERE’s an always-valid reason: to step away from this damn computer!
Some photos taken this past week (mid-October 2015):
Some photos were taken on another recent drive to Home Depot in Cañon City (on the other city of the mountains).
That is reason enough in and of itself, of course: Cut off the blog and spent all that time hiking and seeing places instead! (If I don’t cut it off, I’m simply still ‘busy with it’, and thát spirals out of control into blog posts all too often. (Case in point: this blog post!) For me, it’s pretty much one or the other.
I’m choosing the real world of the energetic multidemensional and biological web of life.
Maybe after a lengthy decompression, I could leave this blog up and ‘let it be’. MAYBE. But certainly not yet. I’m still going through the equivalent of internet withdrawals. *I* am so damn entertained myself, too, you know… ;-/ Then there’s other aspects. Not important in and of themselves, but they add to the feeling of irrelevance.
Relatively Tiny Audience… & Just Not Worth it…
Blog Stats show that since March 14, 2011, shortly after the Fukushima-Daiichi disaster began and I revamped this blog (which right away started with the pages, Radiation Units and creating easy access to Online Radiation Monitors, followed by some “popular” posts such as comparing the fallout maps of Chernobyl-1986 versus Fukushima-2011), it saw some 350,000 views total until early October 2015.
That may sound like a lot to some, but when I think about it, it’s all pretty much irrelevant. For more influential blogs and news outlets flood the web with pro-nuclear propaganda. It would be DELUSIONAL to think that “we”, completely independent bloggers with only our drive to motivate us, would stand a chance to counter that steady stream of bullshit, the algorithms that promote certain content over other, including making entertaining distractions go viral, etc.
We simply stand no chance. At least: not thís way.
Irrelevant but: If recent views/visitor stats are an indication of exposure, then approximately (based on the average of 1.91 views per visitor (2015 data, so far), and 1.82 views per visitor (2014), rounded down) some “180,000 visitors” passed by. If half were frequent returners (just a guess), that might mean not even 90,000 individuals may have been exposed to my blog, max.
Given the popularity of posts that have nothing to do with Fukushima (scenery photos, blips of Buddhism, some news commentary, ‘fiction’ a la Hedgehog on a trip (“Hedgehog Trip (2/5): An Elephant in the Denver Airport!” has been viewed over 2,900 times, for instance, some posts about the local weather, or some climate science heresy (or is it hearsay?) a la (2011) Why I Question the CO2-driven Global Warming “Scientific Consensus”; and (2014) Global Cooling ahead? (w/ Global Annual Average Temperature Anomalies, etc,…) …, etc…), the actual number of people genuinly inquiring about the realities of the ongoing Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Catastrophe and related issues (like Hanford…) is likely less than 25,000, spread over 4.5 years, or perhaps, at the very most, 15 people per day. If that. Sounds about right given the 100+ visitors/day.
Let me now give the imaginary ‘you’ (me, myself and I) something to compare ‘a dozen or more visitors per day to: Just to picking something… Here’s something that has been viewed over 125 million times:
Or here, at least cool and danceable, how about over a billion views to a catchy tune with some dance moves?
The internet, just like television did before, has been turned into a platform for ENTERTAINMENT. I can try to provide something else, but it’s the wrong platform to have a meaningful effect.
I suppose if I wanted to, really wanted to… shift this pathetically marginal anti-nuclear side-show into some kind of ferocious no-bs mass movement that manages to somehow shut down all nuclear reactors, dismantle the entire global nuclear arsenal, and transform the planetary culture into one that will be able to safeguard or transmute the piles of nuclear waste for the tens of thousands of years it will remain extremely hazardous…, while fasciliating a socio-economic fabric that can accomplish peace and prosperity for all…, then I would need to work at least as hard as the people who’re part the machine working to keep the mess going at full speed… I would have to work like a madman. I have niether the energy nor will to do so. And still, for the internet to be part of this, I would have to ‘brand’ myself and pitch horrifying facts as being somehow “entertaining”. They’re not. There is nothing entertaining about the ecological devastation that awaits us. Nor can I make childhood cancer or stillbirths look ‘cute’ somehow. The long-term situation is so dire, it appears even the few experts that ‘get it’, are at a loss of how to be real about it.
“better get to work…”
You want clean water? You wanna keep ancient forests? You want free electricity?
You better work, mate!
You want free energy? Anti-gravity? Heal all your traumas?
You better work, mate!
Oh, sorry, wrong planet… Here’s “the Bad Bitch of Babylon:”
Of course, that’s just “popular culture“… But still, that’s my point: it leaves to wonder… where is this dumbed-down bullshit “culture” of egomaniac superficiality leading us? We know. Somewhere deep down, we all know… And the cognitive dissonance this causes our brainwashed minds is just too destabilizing… so ignoring the truth we do, at our own collective peril…
Basically: I don’t want to be “that guy”. The very playing field is entertainment-oriented. If you want to affect mass culture, you basically have to put YOURSELF in the spotlight as part of that. And I’m not interested in that. This blog has drawn enough attenion to ME as it was, and that was never actually the point… Better to have it gone, so I don’t have to deal with becoming any bit more known and what thay might entail…
I guess it REALLY has come to this… At least three massive nuclear fission reactors have COMPLETELY melted down and out on a beach on the edge of the Pacific Ocean, with absolutely no end in sight to its leaking of unprecedented massive amounts of dozens of very health-hazardous radionuclides, and the main thing that’s happened is that the perception management apparatus of our totally out-of-control global financial-industrial MEGA death-machine… has taken the breaks off an all-out propaganda war, even to the point of pushing for MORE of the same nuclear reactors worldwide.
As another blogger once put it:
“…what do you call it when the evil fascists controlling the media with propaganda find a way to inject stories superficially uncovering wrongdoing, lies, and corruption, but that go over the top, out to lunch, off the hook as it were, thus draining much needed human resources from the good fight, calling the reputation of anyone who held the original hypotheses (not beliefs, hypotheses) into question, and basically obscuring any good research and contributing to what has been uncovered being disregarded by intelligent but conservative minds who might otherwise have given their unbiased attention to the original, rational, non-whack-job inquiry?…”
– Female Faust @ http://femalefaust.blogspot.com/2011/06/link-in-your-mind-cyberattacks-and.html
I’m pretty sure that’s called PSYCHOLOGICAL WARFARE. And *I* opt to “back out” in as far as that’s still possible, because, to put it simplistically, I don’t know how to “swim with the sharks”. Perhaps it’s called FAILURE (my failure to appropriately respond to a seemingly decentralized surreal manipulative and extremely powerful de facto insane ‘opponent’). I accept my defeat. We lost, utterly lost, and still utterly losing, with zero prospects of that turning around any time soon.
I have faith in humanity, but at this point that faith is blind. I see no path forward.
“Oh glory…” [sarc.]
Ah… I might as well ramble onward… In the global culture, a madness of complete denial still rules the day.
It really has me wondering, though… What the hell is motivating these people? Are they people? Are they terrestrial human beings? I mean… at thís point… I don’t know anymore, man… Seriously. Money and power alone can’t be it. They can print this funny fiat stuff out of thin air. If you have any one bit of care for future generations, there’s just some things you wouldn’t do. Creating piles of nuclear waste, stored “temporarily” all over the place, even right near meltdown-capable fission reactors in tsunami zones…, often even in SFP swimming pools build at the top of reactor buildings… and all this without a solution for fail-proof safeguarding all of the dangerous waste products…, seems to basically be a set-up for ever increasing levels of radioactive contamination. It’s all too predictable where this is going. They must know this too…
Do they hate humanity?
And more importantly… how far do I want to go to expose these criminals? Until… Whén exactly? Whére would I draw a line? I mean, decades of people doing just thát has done very little. Blog away…? Waiting for what? For something to change? “haha…”
For the inevitable consequences of “standing your ground” to kick in? Hand out some flyers while peacefully protesting?
Yeah… great idea… I think the people who’re not cynical yet never really tried… Or not very hard…
Who has REALLY come to terms with the fact that Japan’s “worst crisis since World War 2” includes that “minor detail” that Spent Fuel Pool #4 truly might have “gone up in smoke” early on??? … Somehow in a parallel reality show on TV, that never happened and then and was later presumably (massive PR-operation-style) ’emptied carefuly’…? See also https://plumegate.wordpress.com/ . I fell for the PR show. I don’t know what to believe anyore. This tóó is pat of feeling I better shut up. I don’t actually know what happened. I have some clues, and did a bit more homework on the matter than your average “journalist”. But bottom line: I don’t know anymore.
… or that when Unit 3 had its mega-explosion (officialy explained away as a hydrogen explosion, even though it was significantly different than the explosion in Unit 2, which probably wás a hydrogen explosion…), that it likely also blew Unit 3’s spent MOX-fuel pool to smithereens?
In this March 20, 2011 aerial photo taken by a small unmanned drone and released by AIR PHOTO SERVICE, the crippled Fukushima Dai-ichi nuclear power plant is seen in Okumamachi, Fukushima prefecture, northern Japan. From top to bottom: Unit 1, Unit 2, Unit 3 and Unit 4. (Air Photo Service Co. Ltd., Japan). CLICK IMAGE for SOURCE @ https://cryptome.org/eyeball/daiichi-npp/daiichi-photos.htm
You can still stare at all the early photos at Cryptome.org (via @ http://cryptome.org/nppw-series.htm ) and ponder what it all means. Knock yourself out…
Here’s a shot of Unit 3, just to pick something more…:
In this image released by Japan Ground Self-Defense Force via Kyodo News, smoke billows from Unit 3 at the stricken Fukushima Dai-ichi nuclear power plant in Okumamachi, Fukushima Prefecture, northeastern Japan, Sunday, March 27, 2011. (Japan Ground Self-Defense Force)
Probably thinking we’re all idiots, back in those days, the good ol’ NY Times put it (sarcastically or eufemistically or what were they doing…???) on April 11, 2011, as this:
“… And while there has been no evidence of dangerous radiation from plutonium in Japan, the situation there is volatile, and nuclear experts worry that a widespread release of radioactive material could increase cancer deaths … […] … experts are debating whether high radiation readings beneath the reactor vessels indicate that they have begun to leak. It would take full meltdowns, high heat and the rupture of a reactor’s containment vessel to loft substantial plutonium into the air. […]”
Alright, well… We’re 4+ years later and we know it was a complete full meltdown from day one, with extremely high heat and a rupture of the containment vessel… And… And nothing.
“In other news…” Tokyo will host the Olympics, and the athletes will get to “support the recovery” by eating produce from Fukushima… The Onion can’t even top the news that bubbles out of these cauldrons of hell.
Accurate information about what happened and is happening is being buried in steady streams of misinformation, history revisionism, bullshit non-debates, posers / trolls filling forums with distractive crap, and so on. And Whatcha think? Think any substantial amount of plutonium was lofted into the air? Maybe certainly so perhaps?
Well… It ain’t rainbows and kittens, but… (in over 4 years…) well over a million did watch the MOX-fuel-filled Unit 3 blow sky-high… (RT, March 13, 2011):
When you’ve done “your basic homework,” as I have, and you’ve come to what is basically still only a rudimenary understanding of that mess, one thing become crystal clear, though: the disinformation bullshit that’s being spread by apparently pretty darn gullibility (or fucked-up despicably complicit) so-called ‘journalists’ at ‘media outlets’ throughout the world is so over-the-top surreal…
I actually don’t know what to say anymore…
’cause the rabbit hole also goes deep…
Mix in some fiction and some out-there conspiracy stuff, watch enough of it, do some digging into some details mentioned and soon enough… some of it isn’t bullshit nor sci-fi anymore… The fiction just smoothens the transition of what is already in full swing, I suppose. Nothing “is coming”. It’s all already here, in motion.
Lovely skies in this remote part of Colorado this past week… [sarc.]
Some distraction for my own entertainment…
I am -for real this time, I think…- “throwing in the towel”. I’m not giving up on this beautiful world that I love so much, but I am giving up the information front. ‘Cause the whole damn scene sucks. I’ve said all of this before. It’s time to simply walk away…
The internet itself has been systematically ruined. Most people don’t give a damn, cause they’re so entertained… But we’re not just the stupid uncreative disempowered spectators they’re trying to mold us into, though.. We’re human beings.

The sense I get when I’m really honest with myself reflecting on these past four years during which I spent absolutely ridiculous massive amounts of time, ánd money (for lab tests), ánd received less than $20 in donations total (when the donate button worked), is this: It’s just not worth it at any level.
This entire anti-nuclear bunch of blogs and forums is just a side-show of utter irrelevance. We… -if there’s even remotely such a sense of relative unity worth calling, ‘we’, in this insanely infiltrated, manipulated and troll-infested sabotaged online arena, in the grand scheme of things ‘we’ amount to not much more than ‘mere entertainment’.
They got it covered.
We can point a hose towards the sunset and spray water that way and hope all we want that the sun will be less hot when it rises tomorrow… our hopes, no matter how well-intentioned, are simply delusional.
This blogging route has run its course… If anything, just like facebook ultimately did with its alienating manipulations, equally ironic perhaps, this blogging has further isolated me, even alienating people who were fine with me before I felt some odd need to put myself out there… People who just want to “focus on the positive“… And they are receiving encouragement from every direction to ignore anything that does not fit their imaginary bubble, as if ignorance truly is strength…
I don’t dance to that brainwashing note. So, to add… as already touched upon: It may not matter when browsing through tons of cute kitten videos, but…:
The Medium Remains the Message.
The internet is in the hands of corporations tightly aligned with the globalist military industrial complex. The internet, in all its facets, after what may have been its eary brief golden era (the 1990s), has already become one giant apparatus for mass surveillance, behavior modification programming and, especially, distraction.
Even just a decade ago (shown: 2006), propaganda like this didn’t seem quite completely over-the-top ridiculous yet…
To offer tiny tidbits of (attempted) honest news and (attempts at) research in a vast ocean of distraction only legitimizes the internet. It is similar to voting in obviously rigged elections. (Many Americans still partake in the federal farce too, though…) Sure, it can “make a difference”: MAYBE it can be part of slowing down the march towards a very obvious incredibly disturbing approaching future, like voting for “the lesser of two evils”…
Yet… Mere participation actually equals surrendering ones’ souvereignty, however. This (generally unconscious) subtle (but vastly significant) submission is an inherent requirement for engaging the contents of the medium.
“The telescreen recieved and transmitted simultaneously. Any sound Winston made, above the level of a very low whisper, would be picked up by it; moreover, so long as he remained within the field of vision which the metal plaque commanded, he could be seen as well as heard. There was of course no way of knowing whether you were being watched at any given moment. How often, or on what system, the Thought Police plugged in on any individual wire was guesswork. It was even conceivable that they watched everybody all the time. But at any rate they could plug in your wire whenever the wanted to. You had to live- did live, from habit that became instinct- in the assumption that every sound you made was overheard, and, except in darkness, every movement scrutinized.”
– George Orwell, in the novel, ‘1984’ (Chapter 1), written in 1948, pre-computer era.
By providing “quality content” (or so I aimed for at times…), I essentially provided more ‘bait’ for a small segement of internet users. The content is ultimately irrelevant, what matters for the system is that it draws people in to the internet itself.
It’s like I’ve been sowing one part of their fishing net. It is the very system itself that wins when anyone falls for ‘information’. It’s just not where the change is going to come from. In fact, it’s the last place meaningful radical positive change will arise from.
Experiential knowledge trumps information.
By providing just ‘more information’, by default I’m promoting a mode of being in the world. It is practically irrelevant that I aim to expose lies. See, “they”, who’re obviously set on bedazzling people with elaborate lies and pulling a screen of make-belief over people’s perception of the world, require that people first shift their way of being in the world from an embodied experience-based way of being, which includes the arising of intuition and being in touch with clues from the purely and often subtle energetic realms, to one that is information-based, with all the data, “processing” and possibilities for ‘management’ that entails.
It doesn’t look like this, but the overarching achievement of the system when someone “joins the internet” is the de facto neutralization of that individual’s meaningful opposition. Online, the game is rigged. Like modern elections or the United Nations, it offers a false salvation. It is absolutely incapable of changing what must change. When thát sinks in, the whole thing begins to feel like a complete waste of time. In all actuality, engaging this medium in some attempt to affect radical positive change is fundamentally counter-productive due to the very nature of the beast itself. But no amount of data or well-thought-through arguments, could ‘make someone see’ this. You either GET IT, or you don’t. And when you do… You begin to feel like an idiot for spending your days sorting through mountains of data just to back up what you deep-down already KNOW anyhow:
The Fukushima-Daiichi nuclear disaster is WAY way worse than anything they’ve officially admitted so far. My writing on the subject barely even scratches the surface.
Worse, this nuclear disaster actually has barely begun. The bulk of the consequences won’t even begin to show its ugly face for a decade or longer. There’s some revelations in the Plume Gate documents that hint at those realities ahead. Suggestive wording, to put it eufemistically, that have since been twisted beyond recognition by mainstream and so-called “alternative” media outlets, through ad nauseum repetitions of deceptions.
Again, this ‘likely mega-deception’ still leaves me speechless: take spent fuel pool # 4, for instance. I fell for the hoax at first, too. Wrap your distracted head around it, will you: It burned up. Okay?
Click for more clues…
What little didn’t go up in the inferno zirconium fire and rose high into the atmosphere, melted down. I think that what went up is still making its way down. Hence all the data gaps the past several years. All over Radnet and EURDEP you can see it: The innitial fallout reaching ground levels was relatively small to what has begun. Massive data gaps in summer 2012 & 2013, and the spikes they’re showing publicly have been reaching record highs in 2015 on many online monitors since records began. It takes days of work per monitor to paste the records together and then see the radiological landscape shifting over the years.
The cancer, heart disease and mental distress epidemic hasn’t even begun yet compared to what is all too predictably in store for after 2025. The true extent of this mess may not become apparent until the second half of this 21st century. And that’s just the top of the massive cover-up.
A slow-manifesting yet (perhaps even intentional) mass extermination may actually – for real – have been set in motion.
Based on the best information available after 1 week, the US government modeled likely fallout dispersion. For their source term, they included the complete inventory of SFP 4 having been released to the atmosphere… CLICK IMAGE for more information.
Anyways… It’s freak’n depressing… I simply need to step away from digging into this, at least stepping back from doing it through thát scientific-conventional-paradigm way… That’s one of the reasons I’ve pulled the plug on my blog before. It seems to come and go in waves… This time, however, the sense that I must QUIT BLOGGING ALTOGETHER feels stronger.
Something much gentler, much more internal, perhaps more ‘shamanic’ is calling me… It will likely involve many years of dedicated daily meditation practice, and then some. And it is decidely not calling for psychotropics this time. This (right now in October 2015) is maybe the most sober I have been in decades. No drugs of any kind for what is now over two and a half years. Not even entheogens in a relatively very long time either. Even cut out alcohol many months ago.
All I got to do now is cut off the blogging distraction as well…
I know what I know, though…
which is not like any of the information I’ve been pointing at…
Just as I refered to this still-affecting-me weird experience in an April 18, 2015 post, “Spring Snow PHOTOS. And Why I’m Taking a Break from (Nuclear) Blogging“… when I “called in” the energy of the Fukushima nuclear disaster… while self-medicated on potent Ayahuasca way back then on that beautiful sunny day in mid-November 2013… on a Fukushima beach about 15 miles from those molten-down-and-out nuclear reactors…
It feels stupid to repeat, as I have nothing to add, and still know of no way to delve into this publicly in some sort of helpful way… so to pointlessly repeat myself again, I experienced some things for which I still have no words. Almost two years have gone by… The disorientation has worn off, for the most part. I’m still alive and have managed to keep some kind of debilitating mental breakdown at bay. Still… I feel that all my words, my entire blog in fact, is one giant attempt to run away from “what happened there”… So there’s still thát, too…
No need to waste any more words on it.
Unauthorized Access & Interference
Then there’s that weird world of access to my blog being messed with. It appears, at least every now and then, that there are people, or perhaps just computer programs, that mess with access to my blog, without authorization to access my blog. I do not know who they are or how it’s done.
Unrelated to the interference: While my blog is ‘private’, no one should be able to get past this “blog’s front door”, which doesn’t get counted as a view. This is the view of the door when it’s basically locked:
Turns out that when my blog still comes up in Google searches, and that viewing something left in Google Cache does get counted as a ‘view’, explaining the blog stats after shutting access down:
traffic NOT reduced to ZERO
The overall feeling I’m left with, however, is that the medium (blogging, or increasingly even the internet in general) is no longer what it’s made out to be: I can say all I want, sure, yet somewhere else is decided whether or not access to what I write needs to be suppressed or not. So, basically, I’ve been engaging the “information war” on a rigged platform.
With an ultimate goal of “bringing a peaceful end to the misguided nuclear era“, which truly is my aim, this medium can only fail. Its very infrastructure, from the hardware of communications networks, servers and fiberoptics, to software and sharing avenues, is in the very hands of the (pro-nuclear!) globalist military industrial complex. Again, to think it isn’t is delusional. There’s no way to get positive and comfy about this. The situation is thát dire.
My Wayback Machine archive ROBOTS.TXT disabled?
Here’s another oddity: So I shut down my blog around noon on Oct 5, which is 11 am in California, where WordPress is based.
Late evening on Oct 6th, I wanted to look at an older version of a blog post and went to the Wayback Machine, an internet archive. Many people have been saving many of my blog posts for exactly such cases where a blog is taken down or censored.
I got this message:
So I looked into this robots.txt thing. Since it had already been applied, I added robots.txt to my blog and that showed me WHEN exactly this had been done: Oct 5, 2015 @ 3:11 pm. If that time is California or Colorado time, it happened within hours after making my blog private. It that time is UTC time zone, it would correspond with 9 am the same day in Colorado, thus even preceding making my blog private! I thought only the owner of a website could do this? (I tried it out on some bs fluff site, and I was unable to make it un-archivable.). So… what the hell? How was this done?
It is stuff like this that could eat away many more days of my time if I were to get to the bottom of it. But is this really how I want to spend my life? (NO!)
Anyway, obviously, ‘someone’ decided to erase (or at least make inaccessible) ALL versions of my saved blogposts on the WayBack Machine…, the very backup I thought I had in case I would be censored… (even if I’m “the censor” -hehe). This was actually part of why I didn’t think much of taking my blog down. Hm… I figured that those motivated enough would find most of it still in that archive anyhow. Kinda sucks that’s actually not the case anymore… Hm…
Always a bad idea: I had a look at ENENews, this time due to an email and saw the comment thread started by “or-well” (Oct 6 @ 8:37am EASTERN standard Time) he/she had referred to @ http://enenews.com/time-bizarre-strandings-along-west-coast-alarm-bells-ringing-reuters-species-dying-record-breaking-numbers-officials-declare-emergency-animals-washing-severely-emaciated-sickened-parasites-ex/comment-page-1#comment-711889
I (“MVB”) added a message just so no one would start spreading wild speculations or assumptions:
Based on a couple comments and a half dozen emails, it’s clear that some people will miss my blog… ;-/ Or, in case I “lose it again” and turn this stupid blog back on…, “missed”.
If this post is visible, it means the blog has been reinstated (for your distraction and entertainment, I suppose…).
Making this site visible again would probably mean people would read it and watch the videos. What good would that do? Seriously. Anyways, regardless of what I end up doing, I honestly aim to never write another blog post. It’s just not where it’s at.
