From anonymous sources we have heard that many many people are getting booted off of Everyblock. It looks like Everyblock is a great place to BEGIN community discussion and meet and discuss things with people and THEN when conflict inevitably happens, well off you go. Banishment on Everyblock is reaching epidemic proportions and WE as a community need a new site or heck everyone will just start their own blog.Craig and JeffO are banished and from looking at the recent posts it will be obvious who else has been banned. RogersParker who has her own blog has been banned as well recently. Many Many Many others undeserved of exile permanent or otherwise has suffered the same fate.
Please comment here if you like many others have suffered from Everyblock Banishment syndrome. This is the last icon used by my last alter ego Philip McGregor Rogers (resident since 1835) on EveryBlock, Alas the wee lad was killed in the cradle, he was going to talk in old irish and bring a bit of cheer to the site. But that was never allowed and the restoration of this hydrant could not be posted. Yes pretty controversial stuff. If the founding father of Rogers Park cant hack it on Everyblock who the hell can?
Everyblock doesn't own our community or what we have to say about it. In fact I'm glad I got banned. It gave me a chance to finally start a blog. Something I have been thinking about for a long time. Everyblock is turning into one of the dullest sites ever. Now its just silly Flash Mob crap that as Fred Arminsen would say "ITS OVER" or parking restrictions or raking leaves into the gutter. It was fun while it lasted and I predict alot of us previous Everyblockers will land on our feet. We were doing just fine before the advent of Everyblock and we will do just fine without it too. Peace out.
