I was going to start this open letter with “Dear” like any open letter should but I’ve had my last straw with you.
Stop hurting my feelings.
Stop hiding my posts.
Stop using it as a form of extortion trying to force me to hand over my moula to your mighty, allconsuming, money hungry empire.
I get you’re a business. But dudes, I’m not!
Okay, okay, maybe I get a bit of product here and there for reviews and as for that occasional sponsored blog post?
Trust me: Chicken. Feed.
Nothing compared to your trillion, billion, gazillion annual turnover. (Yo, Mr. Z! How’s that workin’ out for you, by the way??)
Every Friday morning, FYBF news is instantly switched off at the source (That’d be you), stopping dead at the toll gates of sponsored posts (Yup. You again).
But FYBF is NON-COMMERCIAL. NON-PROFITABLE. PRO-BLOGGY LOVE!
How can you put a price on the integrity and genuine goodness of an online community?
Ultimately, you’re stopping a bunch of bloggers having a lighthearted catch up over a cup of coffee before our demanding children tear us back to reality?
Who with a normal beating heart would do that?
Didn’t your mamas ever tell you that capitalism is derived from all things trashy, irrelevant and click bait-y?
But go ahead. If you insist, keep blocking me.
But in return, please desist from insulting my peace loving, innocent, educated friends by encouraging us to Like The Association for Guns Rights page and bombarding our feeds with lowbrow stories of Kate Middleton’s derriere.
It’s your call.
Go ahead. Go for the bucks.
You ain’t gonna find any here.
Peace be with you and your disgraceful, moneybags enterprise.
Are you frustrated with Fraudbook? What tricks do you have to overcome the evils of the capitalist empire? Do share!
