Apparently the P-G people were just bombarded with feedback. Sending them more e-mails/phone calls will only aggravate them more.
Seth wants to let everyone know that he appreciates everything that has been done.
Nice work everyone.
Our good friend Seth over at Empty Netters is facing elimination.
He sent us this:
No sense in making this overly dramatic. I'll get to the point.
Empty Netters might be on its last legs. I'm scheduled to have a meeting Monday with editors at the Post-Gazette regarding the future of the blog.
I won't get into details as to why we've arrived at this point. I'm not sure I have all the answers to be honest.
Regardless, and this is where I ask for your help.
Please contact any or all of the following editors at the Post-Gazette and let them know your feelings – positive or negative – about Empty Netters.
—Addresses and phone numbers have been removed.—
Please be respectful when you contact these people. They have given me an amazing opportunity to create this blog and have allowed me nothing but freedom to write it as I please from day 1.
I can't guarantee this will change anything in the end, but at the very least, I want you to have an avenue to be heard. Ultimately, your voice is far more important than either mine or my editors'.
Thank you. And fire Ray Shero.
