Enough with the begging, pleading, false dichotomies, threats, bad cold war analogies and poor attempts at straw-man logic – I get it. You wish every article that’s ever been written about your various exploits would disappear – and demanded this on many occasions lately – and it’s killing you that you can’t manipulate, threaten, bully, trick, bluff or force others to delete the evidence of your messes from the visible internet in your unsuccessful attempts to rewrite history during those frantic-moth efforts for damage control.
Perhaps you’ve finally realized the impact of what I told you early on, the internet never forgets. You ignored this and now you’re finding it difficult to live with the consequences of your actions. Rather than take ownership of what you’ve done, you’re busy blaming everyone but yourself. Which, by the way, is exactly why the situation owns you instead. Speaking of owning you, there’s no blog you hate more than this one, with so much evidence recording your misdeeds all in one convenient place. Unfortunately for you, no one is rushing to pull their articles, and neither are we. This blog is here to stay.
Although the wisdom may seem wasted, I’ll share it all the same: the only person within your control is you. While it’s usually good news for most of us to be reminded that we make our own choices, I suspect you may not find this comforting. The words probably seem ironic, as in the way of quicksand and Chinese handcuffs, so I’ll just wish you luck instead and get back to the business of living a beautiful life.
