Some house cleaning
By Ms. Forward
We here at FightingBob.com have heard from a few readers who have not gotten responses to messages sent recently about article submissions, Fighting Bob Fest feedback and other issues. Our systems are imperfect, but there is also the universal e-mail problem with spam filters and all of that. If we haven't responded it is almost certainly because we didn't see your message. And we certainly want to see it. If you have an important message to send it is probably a good idea to follow it up with a phone call to Fighting Bob headquarters (608-256-1003) and let us know there is a message awaiting attention. If the message isn't there we will know who you are and can have you re-send it.
Which reminds me: Fighting Bob Fest is just around the corner (September 11, 2010, Sauk County Fairgrounds, Baraboo). E-mail traffic heats up when the Fest is about to start. And that's a good thing. And the best way to keep track of what is happening in Bob Fest World is to check the Fighting Bob Fest website, fightingbobfest.org. Answers to most questions you might have about the Fest can be found there. You can also register for Bob Fest now, which you really should do.
And (hint, hint) it is never too early to donate. Some of you may have noticed that this has been a tough year financially for Fighting Bob. If we could get your generous donations sooner rather than later that would help us all breathe easier.
And finally, have you noticed all the Feedback we get here at FightingBob.com? A recent article by Steve Carlson elicited 10 responses. Other sites might get more letters, but they are not as consistently intelligent and thoughtful as the messages we get from readers, even the ones Ms. Forward disagrees with. You can read the messages attached to the articles and blog posts to which they are responding, or you can go to the Feedback page and read them all at once. And if you haven't yet joined our fray, Ms. Forward urges you to consider it.
Did I mention that now really would be a good time to donate to Fighting Bob Fest?
