It's gone

This blog was intended to be a record of the dirt that goes down in online genealogy. To my dismay, I discovered that it only saves 99 posts.  My my. I'm crushed.
Just a parting word before I kill this blog. Rootsweb never took a web site from me. USGenWeb never published an online slander page about me.
However, USGenNet did.

I always believed that USGenNet is more tyrannical than USGenWeb.
Things have changed. They always do. Hopefully, USGenNet and it's phony, "We are so good," propaganda will both die a terrible death.
Yes, I know, a dead cow in the field smells for several years before the stench is gone.
I'll wait like a vulture in a tree. Then I will feast.

We all die---soon.....

Back to genealogy: Do not be timid about copying databases from the USGenWeb Archives. They lie when they say you may not copy it without written permission etc. Data is public domain. Just change the format and it is yours. Translocation of that data is ethical, moral and legal. I know of no better way to honor those who compiled the data than to collect it and present it on your web site.

The world has Ended:
Over at USGenWeb, the CC’s were sleeping again. The Advisory Board passed another garbage rule giving them more power.  They will kick-out anyone who uses an alias. The AB now has absolute power and control over the membership. They can do as they please because the membership is too ignorant or lazy to care. That's funny because I AM STILL A MEMBER using an alias. If they can’t catch this old fart, ….. who can they catch?

You can't have it. It's mine!

On a Friday evening:  Quote from USGenWeb:

"USGENWEB NOTICE: These electronic pages may NOT be reproduced in any format for profit or presentation by any other organization or persons. Persons or organizations desiring to use this material, must obtain the written consent of the contributor, or the legal representative of the submitter, and contact the listed USGenWeb archivist with proof of this consent. Files may be printed or copied for personal use only."
Why do they write that silly stuff?
Because they want to share the data submitted to them with the world. They can not do that if someone copies the data. Get it? If anyone could have it then they could not share it with the world. Only THEY are worthy to have genealogy data.
Whenever I need a laugh, I visit USGenWeb...

USGenNet, my, my. Looks like they will hang around a bit longer with or without contributors; With or without money. U. C., they have sponsored various Projects and sites providing free web space. They cannot just die. It's like the poor man in the ER at the local hospital. They can not just let him die. They cannot kick him out. It might hurt someone's feeling-besides being against the law. They could close the ER like one of our local hospitals did recently. No more dead wood. That is one way to get around the law. ER's must admit sick people and get them stabilized. But if they close the ER, they are not required to care for anyone.
That is probably what will happen in  the case of USGenNet. They will slowly wilt and fall off the tree.

Subject: Re: [ABChat] Next Agenda Item - Alias use within the Project
Well I'll state my opinion and I believe most may find it to harsh.
When I think back on all that this organization went through with the late
Mr. Lytton, I truly believe the use of aliases should not be allowed for
any reason.

No one is worse than a slim ball slandering the dead. Screw Jeff. Screw USGenWeb and the slim balls that run it.
If you are not a slim ball it does not refer to you, does it? It's sickening that other members of the Board praised Jeff for pointing out above. Bless you all. You truly represent the best in Genealogy.

Peep Squeaks

USGenWeb gets even more funny than I thought possible.
While strolling down the avenue I found this quote.
"As per new LAGENWEB rules any file that contains more than cemetery listings will be split up reedited
and moved to family or history folders. Cemetery submissions can only contain listings not geology info."

Hey Baby, how do you spell genealogy?

Another giggler was a USGenWeb Archives notice above a cemetery listing stating that neither the data nor the database could be used by any other projects, and so on and on and on.........................
Do not believe it. Oh ye of little faith, you MAY copy information, or the entire database, put it in your own format, and publish it as long as it is only the facts.
Facts are dates, names, and places. Commentary is not a fact. You can't re-use it.

Dis-functional Paralysis: It's difficult to describe USGenWeb, to put it into words. In my dream, an Angel told me USGenWeb was suffering from Dis-functional Paralysis syndrome.
USGenWeb is a monster with at least five heads. The paranoid State Coordinators who never agree on anything. The CC's who have no clue what-up. The NC who takes her Que from the RAL, and the Advisory Board who cannot decide what their purpose is in life. It's a mixed up, crazy, mentally intoxicated organization too paralyzed to act in a rational or mature manner on just about every issue or imagined issue.
This is truly a day of days.
