Sorry, nothing personal, a business decision

Jennifer, some woman I don't know at Search4Blogs sent me an email saying:

Hello,

I needed to contact you about your blog 'Beyond You & Me' that you have listed in our "Writers Blog" category.

We had to remove all the links at our site that has [sic] adult content and your site has adult content so we will need to delete your blog from our data base.

Please remove our link from your site since your blog will be deleted from our data base.

This is nothing persoanal[sic], just a business decision we had to make.

Thank you,
Jennifer

Honey, I didn't need more than a second to delete any link to you gutless folk who can't spell or make your verb tenses agree. We're not talking pornography here, we're talking adult content. So, since it's nothing personal, I hope Search4Blogs withers and blows away. Nothing personal, just business. That's what Salazzo the Turk told Michael Corleone about why he tried to kill Michael's father in "The Godfather."

Sounds like a good riddance.

Yes, you're right. I just hate cowardice. Joining Google Adsense is one thing, but....

I really dont appreciate your comments you made about me. I guess you are mad because our site was sending your blog the most traffic but we needed to move on with our internet business and removing adult listings was a necessary part of the change and its paying off so it was not only the best business decission but the right one as well.

Best wishes,

Dear Jennifer,

Other bloggers take note: your assertions about referral traffic are imaginary. My top referrer has sent me almost 9,000 hits; Search4blogs sent me 14 (0.04%). I know, because I track them.

Your decision was gutless and cowardly. But it has worked out for me, since I was able to remove the clutter of your useless button from my site.
