I think I’ve Run Out of Titles
Whether or not you think the last post is about someone you know, please do not lose track of the point:
I did not write the last post to point the finger at anyone, hence I mentioned noone. I wrote the last post to discuss my options.
I am sure many of you have had dilemmas involving people that you did not want to mention and have written posts either not mentioning their names or assigning them fake names. Just as such posts are not about the people involved but more about your problem with the issue and how best to deal with it, so too is mine.
If discussing a problem without drawing in the parties involved is “accusing someone” of doing something, then more than half of Blogville is equally guilty of accusing unnamed persons in the thousands of posts that we have all put up asking for advice on personal dilemmas.
What I need you to understand is that since I did not mention the person I was talking about, then whether or not you feel it is someone you know, please do not say that I am trying to accuse ABC. After all, there are many bloggers that I know personally who have at some time or the other written posts about something that is going on in their personal lives. Does it mean that just because I know what is going on, or because I think I have an idea of the person they are talking about that they have accused that person?
This is the point. I need to figure out what to do with this situation and I cannot do that without discussing the background of the situation. That is paramount. Just because it happens to involve someone you might know doesn’t mean we’re supposed to be discussing that person.
I said in the last post:
I will not name any names, so please don’t ask me to because I have promised not to talk about this and I have done my best in this post not to go into any specific detail about anything.
My question is this: Should I continue with the project or not? I want to desperately but I also am deeply repulsed by the idea of people possibly saying that I copied from this person just because they came out with it first when they actually copied from me.
