Who the hell do I think I am?

There's been a bit of controversy over the BlogNetNews "political influence" ranking system. Some folks, who will remain anonymous, are not happy with their own particular ranking, and are taking it out on those of us who, through no fault of our own, find ourselves near the top.

Look, I don't have any idea how David, the guy who runs BlogNetNews, comes up with his ranking system. I also have no idea how Sinister made it to the top. Honestly, it doesn't make a difference to me either way. I just throw my brain juice out at the world, and I don't really care or control where or how it sticks. Sinister is a blog made up of single-sentence exclamations and multi-paragraph rants. Sometimes my posts are well thought out, and sometimes they're just something that was on the top of my head that I wanted to mention. I also post pictures of cute dogs, and silly videos. How exactly does that make me "influential" in the political blogosphere? In other words, who the hell do I think I am with a high ranking on BNN?

I have no freaking clue.

Look, BlogNetNews is one website in a sea of billions. You shouldn't take your ranking on it too seriously. It's just one guy's idea of where you stand. Unless you really care what that one guy thinks of you, then why worry about it?

Most of all, don't take it out on me. I have absolutely no connection to the BNN ranking system whatsoever. I'm just the editor of the Oklahoma feed. My job is to add blogs when they request it and delete blogs due to inactivity. That's all I do for BNN. Everything else is controlled by David Mastio, the overall BNN editor. If you have a complaint, talk to David.

That is all.
