So I cynically, cynically say, the world is that way
Welcome to the new -- and perhaps for some of you -- improved tampatantrum.com. Things are going to drastically change around here as I move on to a new phase of my blogging life. I'd like to ask my family and close friends to please check their e-mail, and then head on over here. Yes, that site is passworded. And no, if you don't have it now -- you're not going to get it. Please don't ask. And please respect our need for privacy.

This blog will still be frequently updated. Anything impersonal -- entertainment commentary, FARK links, jokes, site tips and tricks, recommended blog reads, design updates, sports information, etc. -- well that will all still be here just like always. So don't lose me on your blogrolls. I'm not through here. I'm just taking the 'personal journal' section elsewhere. Thanks to everyone for their comments and e-mails this weekend!

People I know
Places I go
Make me feel tongue-tied
I can see how people look down
They're on the inside

Here's where the story ends

People I see
Weary of me
Showing my good side
I can see how people look down
I'm on the outside

Here's where the story ends
Ooh here's where the story ends

It's that little souvenir of a terrible year
Which makes my eyes feel sore.....

Ooh here's where the story ends.

And here's where book two begins!

Hey boy take a look at me...let me dirty up your mind...

Oooh, The Sundays!

Feel better Robyn! :-)

I must say I'll miss the more personal side of you, but you do whatever you need to do. I wish you well. :)

I hope this move gives you, your family, and those closest to you the ability to heal and grow closer. *hugs* :)

I will miss the more personal sode as well. You do what is best for you and your family. I'm actually quite sad that a few bad apples have drastically changed the way you blog.

well my mail is down so I don't know if i get the info or not but even if I don't girl you know I love you and am always here for you. I completely understand your decision

major suckage having no mail seriously girl it's like being cut off from everyone :)

Hey Robyn, i hope you feel better and just want you to know that your site will always be a top site for me to visit everyday and i will be adding your link to my site. BTW i love the song blogs and poetry. I believe that songs are great ways to express ourselves and i thank you for showing that.

I agree with everyone else. Sucks that you have to take part of you somewhere else, but we all understand. I'm glad to know you aren't leaving us completely.

Hi Robyn!

I am a frequent reader of your blog. I would just like to say that I will miss your entries, but I completely respect your decision to password protect your journal.

¤ ¤ credit: jen | 02.23.03 at 10:49 PM | link--this ¤ ¤

I understand the need for privacy, especially with what you've been through lately, but sharing your life like you have, is part of what makes your blog so special. At least to me any way but I'm not really anyone so this probably doesn't even matter. I just know that I'll miss the more personal side of Robyn, but I hope you find the space and love that you're looking for in your personal blog.

¤ ¤ credit: Jenni | 02.23.03 at 11:08 PM | link--this ¤ ¤

Jenni, I'd call you a lot of things (all of them nice!) -- but "not really anyone" certainly isn't one of them! :-)

¤ ¤ credit: robyn | 02.23.03 at 11:11 PM | link--this ¤ ¤

Robyn, I support you 100% in your decision. Sure I will miss the personal side of your blog like all the others. It really does make this site unique. I will still look forward to making this a daily read.

R.I.P. Robyn's Personal Life for all the world to see. We will dearly miss her. :(((((

Just another echo of sad to see the personal side go, but I understand and respect the decision.

¤ ¤ credit: Jason | 02.24.03 at 02:42 AM | link--this ¤ ¤

It is a shame that the internet has become an unfriendly place for those who are open about their personal lives. I totally respect your decision and will miss the day to day details of your lives. Good for you for continuing on with the passworded site while still maintaing this site as well. I wish you and Todd all the luck in the world.

¤ ¤ credit: Jooles | 02.24.03 at 03:06 AM | link--this ¤ ¤

You were my inspiration to blog and my guru to actually get me going. Thank you. I know it's not the end of your blogging, but it just feels like it. I haven't read anything that people have been saying about you, it doesn't interest me in the slightest that some morons feel the need to say nasty things about two such nice people just to fill a bit of space on their blogs. If it was about me then of course, like you, I would have read it and probably felt the same. You don't need it and you don't have to put up with it. The same idiots will probably get a few more inches of blog out of your "new and improved" site.

Take care.

I'm sorry you feel you have to take this path. Sorry the trolls have sent you underground. But you have to do what is right for you and I'll always support that. But I will miss you...bubbly or sad...you always told like it was and I admire you for that.

"The only thing you must do is what you feel in your heart is true." (Blues Traveler)

Take care of yourselves. You've always been an inspriation - but I don't think that cutting off the personal bloggy aspects will change that.

So if a blog contains 0% anything personal, is it really a blog at all? Hard times call for different approaches sure, but for the anonymous 99.9% of us who followed this one without the nasty comments, this decision is pretty puzzling. So be it, get well, but there's really no reason to visit here anymore.

¤ ¤ credit: Mike | 02.24.03 at 10:29 AM | link--this ¤ ¤

Do what you gotta do, Robyn. As long as you still have an outlet for yourself, whether it be a paper journal or a passworded journal.

Take care of yourself girl. You post some pretty interesting finds & I'll still be coming around for those. But I'll be honest & admit I'll miss learning more about you (we're close to the same age & appear to have some similar interests). But that's okay & you certainly don't need my permission to do this.

See ya later!


¤ ¤ credit: Cyberangel | 02.24.03 at 10:46 AM | link--this ¤ ¤

Robyn--I'll definitely miss the *personal* part of the blog, that was the part I enjoyed most! But I completely understand the need to do so! Good Luck! :)

¤ ¤ credit: Julie | 02.24.03 at 11:24 AM | link--this ¤ ¤

That's a little harsh, Mike. I do see your point- we can go get links and trivial postings at any of a million other weblogs out there, and we all came here for something a little more personal. Still, Robyn doesn't owe us access to her personal life. It was a gift for as long as we had it, but certainly hers to rescind. You have to respect that. It's a shame that a few assholes can ruin things for the rest of us, but that's just the way of the web.

¤ ¤ credit: dave | 02.24.03 at 11:30 AM | link--this ¤ ¤

I'm sorry its come to this :-(

After seeing certain people voice their thoughts (and jibes) on your healing process, when it's a very personal thing, I can fully understand your reason for making this decision. I too will miss the personal side, but some Robyn is better than no Robyn at all. ;)

Just wanted to let you know that for the first time in recorded history I rejoiced at the news of an OU victory (well, OK not rejoiced maybe but I was glad to see it).

¤ ¤ credit: JE | 02.24.03 at 12:17 PM | link--this ¤ ¤

I'm just adding my voice to the chorus of "we'll miss the personal Robyn" but of course it's your decision. I'll miss it, but I'll definately still be here enjoying the space.

¤ ¤ credit: Sunidesus | 02.24.03 at 12:22 PM | link--this ¤ ¤

Mike, by its very definition, a blog is a "web-log". Blog is the shortened version of that original term. Blogs started as a written documentary of your day on the web -- a log of your travels. Not as a personal journal of your daily life. Blogging evolved to include personal journals, topic journals, political journals, etc. My blog is only returning to the original definition that started it all.

It's my server space. I'm paying for the hosting. So until I'm actually making money on this thing, I believe that gives me the right to put anything here that I want. Even if it's only a photo of my left pinky toe each day.


¤ ¤ credit: robyn | 02.24.03 at 12:52 PM | link--this ¤ ¤

whoa... foot fetish pics that I dont have to pay for? and no popups too? now you're talkin!

¤ ¤ credit: dave | 02.24.03 at 01:00 PM | link--this ¤ ¤

I'm going to miss your personal posts Robyn, I'm upset at the people who've ruined this for you (and for the rest of us), in a similar circumstance, i'm sure I'd be doing the same thing. A few nasty comments on my site and I'm always ready to take down comments permanently.

Weblogs are our living rooms, if I had someone over for dinner and they were just rude, I'd make sure they couldn't come over anymore. What's a shame is that people were rude in the first place.

¤ ¤ credit: trish | 02.24.03 at 01:02 PM | link--this ¤ ¤

I'm sorry that fucktards make it impossible for you to just have a blog and let you say your piece. I'm mad that there are such ignorant and pathetic people in this world.

However, YOU ROCK! And, I completely understand and respect that you're doing what you have to do.

I'll still check up on you, hon!

¤ ¤ credit: Da Goddess | 02.24.03 at 01:03 PM | link--this ¤ ¤

{{{{{{Robyn}}}}}}} I am sorry that people are such assholes.

I *kick* them so many times because there are a lot of us who love and care about you and Todd.

Okay, I am sounding selfish.

I really do respect you for doing what you need to do.

*kicks the assholes again, just for good measure*

hey girl I've hijacked Mistermittens blog :)

Actually, Robyn, you are only half correct about the term "blog." While it may mean that now in this day and age, the actualy meaning for blog goes back further than most people who have been online. I will be happy to do some digging to prove this, but, the word blog was shorthand for "back logged", a term used back in the days when slow modems were the only means available to get online. If you were doing real-time computing online (such as online forums) and there was too much going on to fast for your modem to handle, you would be "back logged" with information. Peopke would ask why you are taking so long to respond and you would tell them "I am blogged, please hold on." Or, you would simply say "blog" and this would let everyone on a channel know to stop typing and the forum operator would stop sending info so people could get caught up.

Just wanted to set the record straight there, no offense to anyone :-)

I find this whole thing "weblog" or "blog" phenom quite interesting though.

*** Quick note at 7 p.m. EST on 02.24.03: I was e-mailed by the blog owner in question below earlier today about the file I had linked here. Seems like they may be just a wee bit paranoid that their actions are making them look like the ass they are. I was threatened with a lawsuit if I don't remove "their content". Go for it, buddy. And after checking with my host, I learned I had every right to keep the files here on my server and I'm not violating any of my hosting policies. However, since they were "kind enough" to remove the entries in their blog quoting comments from tampatantrum.com, I'm going to be an adult and remove the link here to their blog entries / comments that are stored on my server as well.

However, I may be blonde but I'm not stupid. I'm not deleting anything I've saved -- and if you'd like to see just what was said for yourselves, the links that went to the collected entries / comments now have been replaced with a link to e-mail me instead with a request to see it all. ***

I just thought it should be made perfectly clear to everyone why I've suspended the personal portion of my blog. It's not some big secretive hush-hush operation. By now a lot of people have seen what I'm about to link here (although I won't link to, or name, their site and give them any additional traffic).

It was not because of comments left here in my own blog. I can handle my own house. It's when it spreads outside the boundaries of my own blog, and personal attacks move on to my unborn children, that I finally put my foot down and say "ENOUGH". It was no longer just effecting just me. It was effecting my husband. I have rarely seen him that angry in our entire marriage. I have never seen him (a peace loving, tree hugging, hippie freak) so close to purchasing a gun and saying "I'll be back in a few days...don't wait up..." And if I continued to give anyone the justification for words like these by my blogging, then I was partially to blame for the anger he felt and his actions.

On this blog -- across four different entries and its comments -- I read things like "karma for her is a motherfucker" (referring to my miscarriage because of comments I've deleted, and banned their authors, in the past). I saw myself referred to as a stripper and a whore for the Boobie-Thon charity drive. I was given a link, as well as e-mailed it, to Midol.com -- and made fun of for my "hormonal imbalances" -- while I am still physically miscarrying, mind you. I was basically accused of not grieving because I became upset by comments in my blog -- and blogged about them -- rather than quietly grieving instead. That entry left by me in anger was the thing that started this whole mess.

I was accused of using my blog as a giant "pity party". Nevermind that my blog has always focused on the good, and the bad. Nevermind that in January, one of these very same commenters bitched and moaned about me being too happy and living a "charmed life". The "facts" were shifted once again to mesh with current times.

And it just goes on...and on...and on. This is only a small sampling of what I read on that site over the weekend. Some of it has since been deleted.

People only have the right to criticize the parts of my life that I let them see. So now, quite simply, they won't see them any longer.

If you have a problem with that, well I'm truly sorry. But it's my life -- it's my website. Even in death I will protect my children -- and also my marriage -- above all else. And should I become a mother one day, I most certainly will NEVER let my kids, or the way I raise them, fall under this same kind of scrutiny. Ever. It ends now.

Actually, here is a link to a USENET article that uses the term "blog" in the context I was speaking of, I will cut and paste the article itself and give you guys the link. It is an even better demonstration of the use of the term. This particular article appears to have been speaking of a major event in the Nets history when one Robert T. Morris released one of the first network worms that brought the Net to a grind halt back in the late 80's. It in fact did "blog" or "back log" the net for 4 days. Quite a mess if I remember well. The irony of it all - Robert Morris was/is the son of a former NSA director.

I'm not arguing where the term weblog started -- I'm stating that the term blog as we know it today stemmed from the definition weblog. Rebecca Blood has written an excellent history on this. Thank you for your research.

You don't owe anyone an explanation. It's your blog and your life, and youre not accountable to anyone but yourself and your spouse. Yes, there are those of us who wish you'd handled it differently, but for purely selfish reasons. The choice was yours, and we respect that.

¤ ¤ credit: dave | 02.24.03 at 02:20 PM | link--this ¤ ¤

They suck. I've only been reading for two months, but I want to thank you for letting people into your life. It's been fun and sad and hard and wonderful. I'm sorry for your loss and that it has been compounded by a bunch of jerks. Do what you need to in order to protect yourself for now, but don't clam up forever. Sharing part of yourself is painful sometimes, but it's the only way to get to the heart of the matter. We need each other, all of us. Don't let them win in the long run.

yeah..uh...most of what i'd say has already been said. always do what's best for you, and fuck the nay-sayers. let them be negative and spiteful in their own time and dont worry about a single one of them. i'll miss yr 'personal side' as everyone's calling it - but yr still here, and still i'll come read, and i know you're gonna take care of yourself. rock on, woman. much love from a new englander who's read silently for a while now, and still will.

Robyn, I'm not going to tell you that you are wrong in the way you are handling this. I just know for a fact that someone will always be there to give you shit no matter what you write. I get emails daily about what a horrible mother I am. I delte the comments from my blog and don't discuss it anymore. I used to yell and bitch and type up firestorms about people who had nothing better to do than give me shit. But it was draining me and made me hate sharing anything with anyone. I was angry and bitter. Now, I simply delte and don't give them the power over me anymore by even talking about it. The more you defend your actions, the more they will try to tear you a new one. You know what I mean? I support whatever decision that you make but I have enjoyed getting to know the personal you very much. I would have never known who to contact about SS in fla if you hadn't talked about it. You were so helpful because you talked about it and then graciously answered my email for help. For all the naysayers that there are, there are more people that care about you and will miss knowing how you are doing. *hugs*

i'm going to miss reading up on what's going on in your life. i rarely comment, but always read. that being said, this is of course your space...so f--- everyone else:) do as you please:) and like someone else mentioned (i think it was dave) you don't need to explain anything to anyone.

again though, i'll miss your personal posts. (i'll still be reading up on whatever you do post though - hehe) take care of yourself robyn, and that good hubby of yours:)

With as much hell as you guys been through these past couple months, I consider myself lucky that this site gets updated at all. I think it sucks that because of a couple of morons, the rest of us get robbed of part of your huge emotional writing range. Of course, if I was in your shoes, I would have lost my shit on this guy a long time ago and probably shut my whole site down. Thanks for not totally abandoning those of us whole like reading what you write.

I've always enjoyed reading your blog, even though I think this is the first time I've ever commented. I'm glad you're keeping a personal blog for your close friends and family, and I'm glad you're leaving a little something for the rest of us. I'm sorry some twisted little troll living in his mother's basement caused you additional hurt in the face of your tragic loss. I just hope you eventually find some measure of peace. You write beautifully, and I wish the best for you, Todd and your family.

I'll miss you too, Robyn. I'll let you in on a little part of my life: I was horribly ripped in a blog by a girl whom I thought was my best friend. This was 3 years ago, and every so often, it still bothers me. She was saying all of these horrible things about me, while smiling at me to my face. So harsh words, defimation of character, and no way to reverse it or defend yourself are perfectly good reasons for shutting out the world. So keep in mind that almost everyone here totally understands why you have to do this. It's your website. I'll miss it, but you do what you gotta do. Your sanity is more important than any weblog. We stand behind you, Dove!!!

i just wanted to tell you that your blog is by far the best i have seen... im so sorry people feel they can make comments and slander you just because you write about your life and feelings online.

i for one will continue to come back and visit your blog because i like the way you think and there's always something interesting to read.

god bless you and yours & don't worry about what other's write. they don't pay your bills and it's not likely you will ever want to meet those assholes anyway.

Well, I'm sorry to see the personal side of your blog go under wraps, but damn if I don't understand, and sympathize. That Jake guy --- well, it's too bad he gets his rocks off hurting people. I'd offer to kick his ass, but he and I both know he'd just appreciate the `validation' if I did take my favorite pair of Wolverines to him. Let him go and whine somewhere else, to sycophants and lickers-of-running-sores like those who commented favorably on his blog entry.

I am glad to know you won't be gone, and I am honored to have been one of those who did get to see `the old Tampa Tantrum'-- the reason, by the way, that I have a blog, a website, and a Movable Type installation to call my own (no matter what else I'm calling it when it's fighting with me).

Be well, be loved, be blessed. I'll be around, even if I do tend to lurk a bit.

Thank you...thank you for sharing with us about your life, both public and private. Thank you for taking the initiative on so many different web projects.

I understand completely why you are doing what you are doing. It just gets me, though, why people think that they have the right to pass judgement upon you for what you write, how you grieve, etc. They may think they're being clever or whatever, but they just look like the assholes that they are.

I haven't been reading you for very long, and like the others, I'm going to miss the more personal side of things, but I understand completely why you are doing this. Sometimes you just have to do what you have to do.

For the short time I was able to enjoy your site, I just want to sat "Thanks". The inherent honesty has been a refreshing breath of fresh air in a genre where superficiality and fluff reign.

True, the trolls are annoying, and there is no shortage of lameness on the net.

Cheers and thanks again

OK, the last time I used this word in a comment, it caused a whole lot of additional comments because of it, but these twatwaffles need a serious wake up call. There are too many people who for some sadistic reason or another enjoy creating drama and chaos in this world. Unfortunately, a lot of them are in politics :)

Sarcasm aside, I too will miss the personal aspect of your blog and respect your decision to password protect your personal journal.

It is sad that there are those who have no clue what it is to be decent to others. Your blog has been my first exposure to the blog world several months ago and I have to say that you have kept me coming back daily to read. I will miss the personal aspect of the blog but I can understand your desire to not allow those that will use your life experiences as fodder for their twisted hate filled attacks.

May you daily find joy and peace in your life!

I too will miss the personal aspect to your blog. It was entertaining, deep, and meaningful, and it will be missed.

Best of luck to you and Todd.

Although I'll miss your more personal musings (it made me realize that I'm not alone in the trials and tribulations department), I completely understand and wish you the best.

Keep smiling, keep us updated with the jukebox in your head, and kick the butt of all who deserve it...

Once again, Mea Culpa. I had no idea that you were going through such a difficult time. Some people are in dire need of proffesional help and never seem to get it. I've always enjoyed your blog and hope that you will continue in spite of this rudeness.
