Urgent: Please Save (Literally) This Blog
I can see the time come when WordPress (who have been putting a faggoty “rainbow flag” on my admin pages since yesterday; you cannot see it, but I can) will kick out all the blogs that do not conform to the new mantra of satanic “inclusiveness”. Still the First Amendment protects all US based blogs, but when you start to decide that being a pervert is a “human right” it follows that Catholics are the new Ku Klux Klan.
WordPress has, all in all, been very good to me as they allow you to create an anonymous blog that is really anonymous. Blogger (Google) does not do it, as you must register with email and mobile phone. In Europe you cannot get anonymous, prepaid mobile phone numbers, or anonymous, disposable credit cards come to that, and it would not be possible to do a lot that can be done in the US. Therefore, the alternatives are limited.
I will stay with WordPress for the time being, but the time will come when either they ban this blog or I decide that there is a better alternative around. As it is, the work of transferring all the material to a new platform for no material improvement is, I think, not worth the hassle.
Still: with WordPress you can get an “export file”, which would allow you to move all of your texts (I think it’s limited to the texts; not sure) to another blog. It is a series of “xml” files. I have downloaded the files, but if push comes to shove I would be absolutely lost at knowing what to do with them. I assume the work of “blog transfer” is a very technical one, because WordPress wants more than $100 to do it from their clients (I would not do it anyway, because there is no way of anonymous payment).
This message has, therefore, the following appeal:
1. If any of you good people has enough technical knowledge to make a backup copy of my blog from outside (that is: without me giving you my password, just as a third party user), please feel free to do so. I doubt very much that this is possible for both legal and technical reasons, but hey, what do I know….
2. If it were to come to the worst, I would have to look for a suitable alternative to WordPress and then look for people skilled enough that, on being given the files, they can put all or some of them in the new blog of choice, with me giving them the password to make all necessary arrangements. I imagine this would be a time-consuming work, so I think it could be done on a limited scope initially, or from several people a bit at a time.
I am looking for volunteers who would, should the time come, know how to do it and would be ready to do it. Again, it does not have to be done now, but I am aiming at knowing what degree of difficulty it would have and how difficult would it be to find good souls ready to do this good deed.
There are more than 4000 posts on this blog (including the reblogs, but still…). It would be a shame if all this work were to get lost.
