By fighting Shilaho or hitting at him in one way or another, some people seem to derive some extraordinary pleasure. Why are people still talking about the best articles for the week almost a month after I stopped posting the list? Why can’t those who want Triond to pick the best contact Triond instead of mourning what I stopped running weeks ago?
The list ran every week for almost a year
Several months ago I made a decision to run a weekly column featuring the best articles for the week and believe me; this did not go down well with most of you. While I did my best to read and try to rate articles as a way of stimulating quality content among my friends, many started taking the whole thing the wrong way.
People misunderstood my intentions
Reading the comments of many people on a post that has been written by one Vijayanth reiterates the feeling I had when I stopped posting the best articles for the week. It is clear that most people misunderstood the idea behind the whole thing but couldn’t say it to my face for one reason or another.
Close friends started feeling Triond should do it
Close friends started suggesting that Triond should run the list and that only meant one thing: They were no longer comfortable with my list despite the support they had given me for close to a year. Receiving messages from the respected my friends made me realize that if people wanted Triond to take over the list, it meant they were not comfortable and I had to stop.
The bottom line
The fixation with the list makes me wonder what it is about it that hurt anyone. Vijayanth has chosen to write about what he feels about the list almost a month after I stopped posting my top ten articles. Why should he voice disapproval of an exercise that stopped almost a month ago? Why do people start fights with me without any provocation? You have my word everyone, you won’t see another list if it is making so many people lose their sleep.
