It was not my intention to strongarm Benevolent Street out of this competition nor was it my intention to hurt Tony Carroll or his blog or to turn anyone against him or his blog. For this, I must apologize. While I do not agree with the way Tony went about things, and while I am glad that I spoke my piece about the whole thing, I admit that I got a little too carried away and unnecessarily insulted Tony on a personal level as well as insulted his writers and his website. I had no right to do that. Afterall, who am I to judge? I could have went about what I had to say in a classier manner, perhaps even contacting Tony on a one on one basis about it, and I regret not doing that. I now see that his intentions came from a good place and that he was just trying to get the word out there on his blog and though I do personally feel that some of the things he did to get votes were wrong, I never had a right to attack him in the way that I did. Tony, I am sorry for that.
With that said, BJ-C makes a good point - we should all just get along, support one another, stop with this bullshit drama, and stop caring so much about rather meaningless awards. I don't want to be the bad guy or the guy who bullies and pits people against one another and though I may have come off that way the other day, that's not at all the way that I am. I support each and every horror blogger out there and I wish Tony and Benevolent Street the best in the future. It looks as if he's using this whole thing in a positive way, and i'm glad to see that. For one last time, the name of his blog is Benevolent Street and yes, I did just link to it.
In closing, awards mean nothing. If it were up to me, Bloody Disgusting's awards would be abolished and in its place would be a post that links to all of the horror blogs out there. Bottom line is, lets all just blog and have a good time doing so. That's what matters and that's why people take time out of their days to read our shit when they could probably be doing much more important things.
