  7. therapeutic.
    good. i think i'll start one of my own.
    love the site. love the idea.
    love the script at the bottom.

  8. People who have a problem with it, shouldn't read it. If they're offended they can stop, it's not like they're paying for it or soemone's making them read it. In the good ol' days of the 'net people were happy with anything they ran accross, we are sharing with the world they choose to read.

  9. I agree with everything, basically, except number 16. There's no way in God's green earth that I will ever admit to having a life outside of blogging.

  10. You tell 'em Chris. It's your page anyway so if they don't like it then they can go somewhere else. Keep up the good work!!!

  11. I couldn't agree more man, I have trouble with people flaming my blog and putting negitive Karma votes on the Sarah Lane fansite I run. People can be asses. Keep on rockin on!!

  12. Chris, one thing I like the most about you is that despite the boom in your career, you've always been the same Chris Pirillo. Your Lockergnome emails have the same corny puns that I've grown to enjoy over the years. Your pizza video was hysterical, and I remember thinking that some of your “fans” might take offense. But those would be the fans who are fans of what you say, not who you are. I'm a big fan of the whole Pirillo bundle, so keep on rockin'.

  13. Chris: For what it is worth, keep on doing exactly what you doing. The throngs of folks who appreciate and respect what you are doing vastly outnumber those feeble minded twits (oops, I am judging them..aww who cares)
    Keep it up!

  14. In prompt answer to the above, Chris made the Bloggers Manifesto Signatory Blogsticker. Tres cool.
    I think I'm the second signatory to have it on my blog(s).

  15. Adverse commentary is just the Internet Gods way of letting you know that you have readers, and that what you say has consequence.
    I don't think I could blog. The manifesto is too tough. All that “like it or get out” stuff. Yikes. Modern relationships.
    I might be able to write one for John Dvorak. Call it something like, “Oh, I'm da dang biggity bomb, baby.” You'd have to change the manifesto, tho, to include “Everything is crap”.

  16. Perfection!!!
    Yes! Chris, you give a lot. You have your limits. You play fair. Why should you take any crap! You are the “Guy With The White Hat!” And the good guy ALWAYS wins.
    Oh, you don't like everything Chris does? There's a million sites out there. Be nice to yourself.. Don't suffer under the wrath of THE MIGHTY PIRILLO (j/k) for another minute! Find relief and freedom on the site that makers you happy.
    In other words, GET LOST!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  17. This is the lamest thing I have ever heard. A manifesto, for crying out loud? “I've given something back to the blogging community.”? Here's a surprise for you: There is no blogging community. There's a bunch of prima donnas who stand around with other prima donnas patting each other on the back. Big whoop. Is that something to be proud of?

  18. I agree 100%. I have know idea why this manifesto is not common sense to people that read blogs.
    P.S. How do I put the Blogger sticker on my blog?

  19. Maybe there is 26. missing:
    26. If someone closes his or her log, I have the decency and good manners to accept that and will not follow that person around in log entries, mails and comments to complain and analyze.
    no, just kidding. Half a suggestion, so to say. Strange and sad that some flames things are international.
