Greg says.....


From KIDS WATCH LG15 TOO...

"Oh yeah, I'm only going to comment on this site and InsideLG15 for now on (and hopeful's blog as well). I'd rather be where I'm liked and I'm a kid at heart :)"

NOTE: I think LG15 Today has always been fair in its coverage of Lonelygirl15 and KateModern. What can we say. Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the law.~mm

Hey everyone,

I wanted to reach out and let you all know that I thought about my comment on Kids Watch LG15 Too, received a really supportive email from a member of our community, and read all the comments above. All of this has led me to believe that I overreacted in my post and shouldn't have written it. While I do feel the abuse level on this blog towards me, Miles, and Amanda has gone a bit too far, everyone is entitled to their own opinion and I STRONGLY support free speech.

This blog and community are amazing. Modelmotion (and many other posters like GregGallows, Virginian, and others - sorry if I left out names) spend an insane amount of time collecting and posting information on the LG15 Universe and the greater world of online video. You all are amazing and are very fair towards us.

Occasionally comments or posts will come in that attack us and we are only human . . . we react. However, I will work on enjoying the good posts, learning from the critical posts, and ignoring the unnecessarily mean posts.

So, with all that said, I apologize for my comment. It was done mostly out of wanting to let some people know that we are human and it does hurt when we get attacked. Most importantly, I did it to stick up for Amanda who works 15 hours a day, seven days a week, to produce the show and run Inside. I don't feel she deserves to be attacked and I think some of the posts here take things a little too far. So, if you guys still want me, I'll be lurking as always and commenting when I have something to say.

Thanks,

Greg

  1. That's a nice stab in the back for a blog that has been supporting you for a long time.

    The blog has never done anything bad to you or your series. Comments are free for everyone though, like it should be.

    It's unfair to judge the blog on it's visitors. And after all the effort from the people working on this blog 24/7, this is the thanks they get...

  2. I don't believe Greg has posted here in quite a while anyway, so I don't believe this is a recent decision on his part.

  3. oh jesus christ, bright. The entire community on this blog has done nothing but give him shit during a month of AWESOME videos. Don't expect him to want to post where he's talked about like dirt...

  5. greg: sorry i mentioned your comment in the "potential killer-on-the-prowl-masquerading-as-amanda" post below.

    lg15today is excellent, and mm is aweseome, but its hard to say its always fair. we're an audience, not judges, we're allowed to have emotions and idiosyncracies. but i feel the negativity is impacting the fun of it all lately.

  6. This blog is becoming unreal with the negativity towards the C's.

    The latest videos have been excellent, the story is really getting interesting, and still, this takes the backseat to petty bitching.

    For some of you, the drama and whining will never end. Nothing these people do will ever be good enough, and quite honestly, I will not be surprised when they just stop caring completely (seems like it's already started with Greg's comment).

    As someone who does not have the time/desire to be very active in the "community", I'll tell you that this blog has been an EXCELLENT resource, gathering and presenting information all in one spot. But the drama, complaining and bitching has gone so overboard lately, that Greg's comment is no surprise at all.

    The C's aren't dogs you can kick around and expect to come back to you and lick your hand.

    FOTM

  7. I don't think my dog would lick me if I kicked her around...What dogs do YOU know? ;)

  8. jalg,

    Yes, it would, since you are it's owner and caretaker. Your dog is submissive to you. It may snap or run away at first, but it will forget quickly. Volunteer at your local SPCA for awhile, and you'll see just what an animal will endure and still show love and affection and protect its owner.

    That this group is treating the C's as if they are submissive, and then expect them to come around for more abuse, is ridiculous.

  9. I don't know if they are as much attacking this blog, as it would be hard to read some of the stuff on here without reacting strongly.

    They have poured themselves into creating quality web-videos that we see at absolutely no cost with occasional product placement. They've worked hard on this and it's probably like a child to them. To read the drama and people who complain is difficult and it's probably more difficult not to defend themselves.

    So I don't know if this is something specifically against LG15 Today, but probably just trying to stay away from the negativity and criticism and focus on their job: telling the story.

  11. Greg it is a good idea to keep posting here, so please continue.
    Some of the criticism you, the other creators and the show receive are unfair.
    It makes more of an impression if you stay and fight you're corner, stand by yours decisions and perhaps explain them. of course you can't reply to every negative comment and criticism but when you do have something to say saying it on here will make a big difference.

  12. Very cool, Greg. That was very cool of you. I've always loved the show and have been around since the beginning. I plan to stick around for the new one. I've always been a supporter of MM too, so I feel caught in the middle here. While I may not always agree with everything, such is life. I can't speak for others, because I know I am not as involved in all of the areas, so I don't even know what a lot of the arguments are about. Anyway, thanks for your comment above, that was a cool thing to do.

  13. I just wanted to say that I really appreciate this gesture. As one of the people who has been criticizing a couple of things the past few days I think it's only fair to acknowledge that this probably wasn't an easy thing to write.

    I know that there are people out there that just like to cause drama, but I hope that the serious criticism isn't overlooked because of this.

    I myself appreciate your continued support for a blog that is a central starting point for many people in the community.

    This does not mean that I will stop giving my opinion on things, I just hope it is clear that the reason people raise issues is because they care and want to help improve things. It's only a few that make it a personal attack.

    While positive commentary to no end might be good for the ego, the real value is in valid criticism. It takes skill to recognize that. I think this message shows that you are trying to make that separation. I am looking forward to the effects of that effort!

    Thank you Greg!

  16. Even the personal insults should be taken with a grain of salt. At least they care enough to have an opinion, right?
    It's when people stop commenting. That's when you worry.
    It's like my dear ol' pappy used to say, 'What people think of me is none of my business.'

  17. you guys are awesome, thanks for all the positive feedback!

    ReplyDelete
  18. I'm just waiting for modelmotion to point out that Greg didn't sign in to post that comment, so we have no way of knowing it was really by him ;).

    ReplyDelete
  19. Greg and Amanda, we really appreciate your comment and would like to continue to see you posting on her when you have something to say.
    Work is hard, and some people will always have something to say.

    keep up the great work
