The Countdown To The Resurrection

The Countdown Begins In Search of RidorLIVE.com

But … Why?

Posted by ridor9th on January 21, 2008

People asked me why RidorLIVE.com has been down for the time being. So much things has happened in the last 50 days which I do not owe any explanation to the readers. There are things in life that I do not intend to share with the public.

I was alarmed to notice the trend among the readers, bloggers and vloggers starting to ask whether if I have a boyfriend, whether what do I like to eat, whether if I plan to do something later tonight or tomorrow or even whether if I will hit an individual for a night of debauchery! These little things made me wonder whether if I should cap my life private as much as I can.

And I did.

Suddenly, I get lots of peeved readers, friends, bloggers and vloggers for shunning them in an attempt to protect my privacy. Some acted as if they are my best friends and expected me to spill the personal issues.

Even worse, they started to get in touch with my siblings and my close friends for information about me, my life and so on.

Now, that is quite offensive, fellas. I already got a threat mail postmarked from Santa Ana, California — which I am quick enough to assume that it comes from Richard Roehm, the pea-brained fool who claims to be some kind of important figure in Orange County, California. Needless to say, I turned the mail to the United States Postal Inspectors.

Why this temporary blog? Because I am working on to get things together in time for the return of RidorLIVE.com — only better, bold and stronger than ever.

I’ll admit that I stopped reading DeafRead.com these days mainly because much of the yakkings were redundant, to say the least.

My blog(s) may serve as a source of information for Deaf people throughout the country, Canada and the world but do not try to disparage and disrespect my wishes in protecting my privacy.  Everyone reserves the right to hold their personal life private.  Do the same thing for me, readers.

And Elizabeth Gillespie, your attempts to contact my sister regarding what I do these days and at the same time, block me from emailing you directly says a lot about what kind of person you are.  What a bitter queen.

However, let’s get back to the point of the entry:  RidorLIVE is coming soon than you think, hence the countdown begins today … but why?  Because it is fun to keep the readers speculating over, over and over.

The new RidorLIVE.com shall have four writers which I will have no control in what they have to say.  And it will entertain you throughout the Deaf Blogosphere.  Which I really cannot say the same thing about DeafRead.com these days.  I admit I read PerezHilton.com first before I stumble upon DeafRead.com.  Sorry but that is the truth.  So there!

Cheers,

R-

    well well well look who has arisen from the ashes! well your little strike didn’t go unnotice, and now that you are resurrecting, i should be the first to say at this godforsaken hour that i am up at right now is . welcome back or is it ? and why should i be afraid? you are you, this is EXACTLY why when i am in the blog world or anywhere i am very chosy on who my friends are and my collegues are, when i am out the door my private life stays home end of discussion anyone wishing to know more abt me well i pity thier questions. i don’t ask about thiers so don’t ask me about mine, this is EXACTLY why popularity should never exist. we are one poeple from all walks of life. celbs and bloggers shldnt expose thier personal life, just thier thoughts on issues thats it…

    ( btw i know u will ask me for it soon and the answer is no we’re all on serious crisis right now)

    Deafread is a “had been”. No one really reads it anymore. I use my own rss reader and just subscribe to those blogs I like directly and bypass all the bullshit.

    Also, the Deafread awards are a joke. Did you notice that nearly all of the Deafread moderators are nominated? And they’re running the contest. That’s a major conflict of interest. When you run a contest, you and your staff and family should automatically be disqualified from participation. It’s very unethical of them to include themselves. Makes me think less and less of Tayler Mayer, whom I already have a very low opinion of.

    Hallelujah! God Save the Queen! (And I mean that in a totally non-Xian, non-lunatic, non-cyberstalker kind of way)

    Welcome back- the Deaf cybersphere (aside from a few good gems) has been one long snore-fest since your absence.

    Interesting to notice that since you were gone, quite a bit of copycat blogs have sprung up. None compare to yours though, dear.

    Many of us are patiently awaiting your fabulous, fire-breathing return with eyes wide open.

    Ciao
    ;0)

  5. Nice to know that you’re coming back, Ridor. Sorry about your cat. That really sucks. The deaf blogosphere wouldn’t be something really entertaining, thought-provoking or crazy without you.😉

    Oh man – today is March 25th, 2008! Oh man, I’ve been checking http://www.ridorlive.com and peeking into deafread.com to see what had happened to the only ridor and his website …. N-O-T-H-I-N-G. Somehow, I became sad, depressed, worried, puzzled, and screamed “whyyyyyy” at “parked with dreamhost” for so long!!!

    I am so so so happy to have found this countdown2resurrection.wordpress.com

    Welcome back Ridor! (I know I’m wayyyyyy too late)
