A blog that I’ve been faithfully following has disappeared. The blogger has removed the weblink. Just like that ! Without a word of parting, after 2 years, the blogger finally saw no reason to blog anymore. I knew things weren’t working so great. I can tell from the tone of the most recent write up. I tried giving support, showed concern to this stranger. After all, 2 years is considerably a long time. I thought I had some special “rights.” – built on a virtual bond where words were exchanged in the blogging realm.
I was naive and stupid. The virtual world only exists so long packets are sent across the thin wire. Once you unplug everything dissipates.
