Our usual weekly round up of what people were saying about the Robert Swipe Show when they could be bothered to read it...
This week: Week beginning March 20th 2007:
you're not seriously taking a "break" from the blogosphere?
20 March 2007 06:59
Bob - please check your mail. Ta.

Just catching up on all the Comic Relief fall-out and I see Robert has been naughty. No surprise there. Off you go to the headmaster's office swipe.

Oh no you don't, Swipe. Get back here immediately. Stop sulking and get back to work.
I liked "Spinterella". And the video is inspired. I was just trying to think of some other words rather than F. Brill!
I know where you live...

Keep blogging, Swipe - plenty of readers out here!
20 March 2007 10:52
But...but...I only just got here! Don't flounce off now, just when I was enjoying it.
Oh, and thank you muchly for the very kind endorsement. I promise I am an authentic nobody with low levels of rancidity.

Not at all Bob - both the vid/song Spinsterella was/is great - re: asbo comment - perhaps I should have put in brackets (I am writing this laughing and smiling as I am joking rather than tapping words out tainted with vitriol and hate)? Going away now.

There's no point in slinking off to your goth birds splattered in feck blood (even though they're a more tempting type of reader to have compared to yer average Croydon inbred blogger like meself), but by you taking a prolonged break from here will only encourage Photon to post more pics of Windass, which *simply* *will* *not* *do*!
It's YOUR blog, you can and should say whatever the fuck you feel like wether you're sober, rat-arsed or of unsound mind in general.
Seven words spring to mind here:
let, grind, bastards, down. the, you, Don't,
Sheesh, I'll probably get hate mail for daring to stick up for ya.
Fuck 'em if they can't take a joke.

>>>she seems to have stopped reading anyway>>>
I've been away on holiday ya moaney auld fucker!
(Off now round the blogosphere to see what you've been up to this time around.)
20 March 2007 15:28
You may definitely NOT flounce!
shake it off...
flip 'em off...
come back to us.

I think your core argument (raising questions over the validity of the whole Comic Relief project; the whole politics and pecking order of the blogosphere; perfectly fair points, whether or not one agrees with them) got mushed up with the feelings of people who'd put in a lot of effort for all the right reasons (especially Mike Diva) and those who were seeing their product in print maybe for the first time (eg Betty). I think they may have been a bit naive to think there wouldn't be some kind of backlash; to be honest, you may also have been a bit naive to think they wouldn't react so strongly.
Rather than lying low, I think everyone ought to shake hands and agree to disagree and no harm done and sticks and stones and all that sort of thing. Like at the end of Bugsy Malone.
And don't flounce. Well, not much.
Love, light and peace,

Can I throw custard pies at everyone and blow raspberries and then laugh and cry and laugh again and run around hugging everyone? Goodness - we are all just a bunch of troubled diva's really aren't we. I might have to consider therapy.
