Yesterday, I noted that in the wake of Karl Bremer’s rapier-like assault at the heart of the Minnesota Organization of Bloggers’ content-management and enforcement policies, King Banaian had assumed an unconscionable amount of power unto himself, and declaring himself superior to the Northern Alliance’s “advice and consent” role. In effect, he has declared himself absolute dictator of the MOB.
He was given a chance to fall into line and obey the constitution – an imperative that he swept aside like Caesar crossing the Rubicon. King Banaian rebuffed my efforts to broker a settlement.
It would seem the MOB – heretofore a placid, unified front in the blog wars – has been rent asunder.
Though it pains me, there comes a time when a guy has to make things perfectly clear:
I call upon King Banaian to relinquish control over the MOB’s policy-setting apparatus and, above all, the “Blue” and “Red” lists of blogs’ standings in the MOB.
I’m maintaining my calm – but it can’t last forever.
