A thank you from Home Watch to the Home Community


This blog opened the 4th of this month. It is now the 12th, only eight days into this adventure. One day, one week. And I am completely astounded at how much response this blog gets. Every morning when I check my email I have thank you emails. Every morning more people giving me their complaints. (Sorry I can't publish each and every one of them, it's just difficult to research each case, and a lot of them turn out to be duplicates)

With that being said, I'll go on record as saying I will keep this work going as long as I feel there's injustice regarding home, preferential treatment for staffs' lackeys, sexual harassment, stalking, and complete lack of customer support.

I promise if you keep fighting, I'll keep giving you a place to have a voice. Thank you for a great first week!

  1. I think the posts you make are very interesting but at times a little bit too aggressive. But there is A LOT you haven't covered, or barely touched the surface of.

  2. The aggressiveness is due to the excessive irritation. I have seen countless people (Myself included) try being civil, tried being polite and nice. Tried very hard to voice their thoughts and visions. However, due to the horrible structure that Home has, most of these posts make it past a page. Worse yet, those that do often times get locked or deleted. Sometimes complaining as loud as you can is the only way to grab the attention of people. Home is so constrictive many folks aren't used to someone who's willing to speak their mind.

    As for what we cover, we'll get there. Like I said, it's only been 8 days. ;)

  3. You're absolutely right, I sent you an e-mail about writing for this blog. I am not afraid to let people know who I am, and I've got some pretty good ideas of what to cover. Let me know if you're interested.

  5. @SkyForcE85 - I have experience writing blogs, though not much and I've been told I have excellent written communication skills. Not to mention I've done a lot of research on some of the subjects here.

  7. I know, I read that part. It's just something that I would really be interested in doing, especially if it was for the greater good of Home.

  8. Sometimes I wonder which would work better, aggression or passive resistance.

    I mean, they can't operate without us funding them. So far, we've been treated like an annoying "vocal minority." Getting shut down because it's convenient for them. Sometimes you gotta be aggressive to get the sheep to open their eyes and realize they are being lead to a cliff.

  9. @Alice the Sister - There is more that can be done, though. Insulting various members of the community isn't really going to help the main cause here - Home. When I say aggressive, I don't necessarily mean toward Home, that's fine, we've learned that is the only way.. but, I don't think it is called for to insult various members of the community.

    They may be suck ups, and they may be managers pets, but insulting them is not for doing anything for the greater good of Home.

    Perhaps it's a personal vendetta for the writer. He is the owner of the blog, so he can post whatever he wants. I think it would be better for the Home community as a whole if the people on their high horses got all of their BS pointed out to them, though.

    If definitely shouldn't be a main point of the blog to attack people. But when it's needed, it's needed.

  11. @The girl in the Shark Hat - Yes, that's fine, but if it is a personal vendetta, I'd love to hear more about it.

  12. "I don't think it is called for to insult various members of the community."

    Perhaps not, but ask yourself this. How many of those with special privileges have said horrible things about other people? Or spoke down to them like they were children? Or blatantly twisted their words around? I like that this blog can attack those people a little. I have many times wanted to just scream "OH MY GOD ARE YOU FUCKING RETARDED" to many of these kissups. (Conrad_Max comes to mind) But up until now I haven't had much ability to feel as though I had a voice. Hell I still have to post anonymously.

  13. @Anonymous - I am not afraid to speak my mind, and I never was. The only reason I remained silent for a long while was because I knew that any attempt to go against them on the forums would immediately be silenced, as I had tried several times in the past. However, and I may have been to generous in this, I wanted to wait until 2010 was over to see if things improve.

    As it stands now, there IS improvement in communication, just very little. Prior to posting my thread regarding their lack of communication and what I personally wanted to see in 2010 they were not even letting us know when things went wrong or that they are being fixed. I was not the only one who wanted to see change, however, and it's thanks to the community that we're seeing an increase in communication even if it is just slight.

  15. I guess I can see where you're coming from. Think about it though, if this place didn't have the attitude that it had, and said some of the things that it did - people would treat it like just another chitchat blog. By singling members out, it shows that the site isn't afraid to step on toes that need to be stepped on.

    I gotta say though, it doesn't seem like the site is 'insulting' too many people. It probably just seems that way because we feel like we've been attacked by these goons, by these "elites". While do agree that attacking people is a bit counterproductive, I do think sometimes examples need to be made. A better example would be made if they made an intelligent remark instead of attacking, but that's how it goes when you've been abused/neglected in Home and by the people who run it (and/or pretend to run it).
