I started Geekswithblogs.net as an alternative to weblogs.asp.net. We would promote Geekiness which is 50% technical / 50% personal. The service is free and has been pretty successful. However, lately the blog request I have been getting are rude and demanding. An example from ONE REQUEST
is "Hence I request you to provide me a blog here"
and "expecting a fast and positive reply"
. Now come on. This is a free service, but I am not your bitch. I suggest to individuals who want to request something from someone else for free to be polite and make sure you are phrasing your request correctly. Just pissed me off enough to stop the chapter system for the book club and tell you about it. Back to work.
