Blogging responsibly: a tale of irresponsible blogging

I”m still new to all of this, and i have from time to time, had my difficulties with this site i chose to blog on.  So after perusing a few of the smaller options, that I initially glanced over, i found this-

“There is no limit to the number of blogs you can have, so create to your heart’s content, but blog responsibly.”

There are a few thoughts that come to mind here, and responsibility was nothing that i really had planned on here.  Writing is my escape from conformity, the place i can go to let loose, reflect, and see the world with more understanding eyes.  That being said, it should be stated that my eyes regularly burn with indifference.  I can cross the line, i stay behind it, or i can spit on it in disgust.  The line is there as an option,  its not a wall,  or a laser death trap,  it was drawn,  and allows us options as to what to do with it.  irresponsible

It should be fairly evident that i have crossed my fair share of lines regarding writing with responsibility,  and the thing is, I am always going to.  I am aware of my actions,  and i am actually quite humored by them, not only that, but the people around me are humored by them as well.  I am in certain words, a mess of a  human being, and tend to do my most amusing work when i am inebriated beyond reasonable control. Take for instance this very moment, i am stoned to the point of great confusion, the weed is left over from Christmas, there’s not much of it left, but the buds are covered in so many crystals, they look like little Christmas villages. Anyways, when i get the itching to write, it is when i am all buzzed up, and completely prepared to break any rule set in front of me.

I am at the current moment, attempting to repair a slight amount of damage i created all liquored up, and not at all in my right mind.  I used to upload links to a movie streaming site http://www.movie-forumz.org, a video streaming site that allows you to watch movies and television shows through various video host.  I found links to video’s that people wanted, and then posted them on the site for them to watch. I mainly scanned through the request section and did what i could to find the older, and more obscure movies, that require a little bit more searching than recently released films that are uploaded by slews of the community.

Well I posted a few bad links because i neglected to properly screen them, they warned me, and i complied, and things were well until i ended up posting a link to a movie that was apparently on a “competitor” site. I was really unaware that it was a competitor site, it was new to me and appeared to be a file hosting site which was more than acceptable. Well it wasn’t, and they sent me a message informing me of my wrong doing, administering an “infraction” and threatening to ban me.  I was already shit faced hammered when i received the message, so a quick response was absolutely necessary. I simply explained the situation as i did here, but i apparently threw in a few (a lot) curse words. And that seemed to completely overshadow the real case at hand here, because after that, a few more letters were exchanged, and they ended up banning me for life for swearing. In fact the message i received after attempting to log in read this:

Date the ban will be lifted: Never???  Was what i did really that bad??   I think where things really went wrong, is when i called them “movie nazi’s” and “douche bags” in an open forum. One member actually openly admitted he thought it was funny, but they all spoke out against him, so i got piss drunk, and sent completely foul ramblings. It was after that i was no longer welcome, and they told me that it was because it is a family site, and that kind of behavior is not acceptable. Now that is where i find this whole situation is no longer sensible.  Am i to understand that illegal video streaming is a wholesome, family oriented activity?  That the child’s parents who discover their child’s internet activity will be most concerned with my language in a forum that is unlikely to be viewed by any children?  Are the children that are pirating movies such  good mannered, religious and wholesome  kids who are deeply offended by shit poor language?  This is the part of the argument that you completely lose me.  I think it was because i had the nerve to question them, and tell them they were doing a bad job at being reasonable people. I think i was so harsh, but so right, that i had to be eliminated before i could talk anymore, which i most certainly would of done.

So like i said earlier, i have made an attempt to repair this situation.  I apologized for my behavior, and told them i was interested in making things right.  They referred to this situation as me “going crazy”,  which had i known what was going to happen in the end, that would have had more merit.  I believe we are both to be blamed equally, both sides in this were trying to hog the covers,  its just that they decided to not let me jump into bed anymore.  So in the end, the lesson to be learned here is this,  children are impressionable,  and a huge part of illegal online entertainment.  The next time your streaming a movie online,  make sure to be aware of the family oriented environment you are in.
