I've been DOWNGRADED!!!
Okay, I'm not really that upset but it is a chance to bring back the HAMSTERS!! Because thanks to the stupidity of the TTLB Ecosystems attempt to "deal" with the "unfairness" of the Open Trackbacks what it did for me was eliminate links from alot of the blogs that used to have links to my posts which made me drop from a "Large Mammal". The irony is the over 35 links they removed were not from an Open Trackback situation they were from blogs I had been linked from prior to me even becoming a Life, Liberty, Property Community Member. Realistically had I not joined the LLP Community? I'd probably lose another 50 links if not more.
Current Status: Adorable Little Rodent
Why? Realistically not to offend but because I'm just a blunt kind of woman, the whole concept of the ecosystem is based on how many blogrolls you join that will link you rather than any true indication of quality of your blog. I joined because it seemed fun and it is still fun. Without the Ecoystem the Hamsters would have never become such an integral part of LCS. If my goal were not about my blog and the quality of comments, number of people that participated, etc, I would spend my time finding blogrolls to join and to list here so that both sides of my blog and every available side bar contained blogrolls I belonged to. As you can see? That's not a priority for me. The blogrolls/groups I list here are done so because I believe in what they are doing.
Sooo do your worst TTLB Ecosystem!!! Turn me back into an "Insignifant Microbe" for all I care. I will continue to do as I am right now and the Hamsters will reign....
I was nominated for Best New Blog of 2005 and even if I don't go any farther than that? That to me was more than any "Large Mammal" rating because I was nominated by someone who thought I was worthy.
I'd end this with I fart in the general direction of the Ecosystem and make a comment about elderberries but that would not be ladylike....
Just for kicks...this post is trackbacked to:
The Right Nation
UPDATE: After dropping down to one link last night, it appears all of my link numbers are again being counted and are higher for some reason (136) However, that used to be a "Large Mammal". It appears the number range has been changed and there are alot less "Large Mammals" then there was before this. Now it appears you have to have at least 201 links to become mammally. You now have to have over 139 links to be a "Maurading Marsupial" and 103 to move into the wonderus and most fantastic "Adorable Rodent".
Gee, now all of the big Mammals that were upset about the rifraff moving up should feel secure if this is where it stays. But? You are to remain calm according to this message on the TTLB Ecoystem:
Ecosystem maintenance is currently in progress. Do not be alarmed. Breathe deeply. Don't panic!
In other words? RUNNNN!!!! Extinction of many Large Mammals has ocurred! The Ice Age might be next!
