A Personal Statement

Posted by Kevin Owens , Apr 03 2011 · 71 views

General
I know I'm on haitus right now, but this issue is hitting so close to home that I have to talk about it.

Blogs are in the same boat as images. They often go hand in hand, images appearing in blogs. They have certain rights. These are numerous. The right to exist. The right to enjoy peace and prosperity. However, above all other rights is this simple and inalienable right. Blogs and images have the right to be beautiful. While the images inside the actual entries are both very beautiful, often those in the content blocks are marginalized and taken advantage of. This is especially true for splash images. They are often abused by those holding old, outdated views of what's 'obscene' as dictated by silly notions that have long since past from the general consciousness.

Please, everyone. Help me fight blog and image abuse. If you have your content blocks on the left, use this image.

If you have your content blocks on the right, use this image.

Remember everyone, only you can prevent image and blog abuse.

Every month, actually.

And this entry has prompted me to go link my approvals when I get the time.

Weeks? Months? Years? Days? It matters not to me! So long as there is a just cause, I will be willing to take up the fight against the evil doers who seek to deal havoc upon this humble little abode that I affectionate refer to as "Casa del BZPower."

Fight? My good sir, you misunderstand me. This is no mere fight! This is something much, much more grander. This is my quest. To follow the star, no matter how hopeless or far it seems. I know that if I only be true to this glorious quest, that one day my heart will lie peaceful and calm when I'm laid to rest. And, yes, the world will be better for this! That one man, scorned and covered with scars, still strove with his last ounce of courage to reach that unreachable star!

Hear me, you rule breakers and infringers
And abusers of images!
All your dastardly doings are past,
You shall now witness the begining of a righteous endeavor
And a mentor shall triumph at last!
