In a recent move which is frighteningly reminiscent of some of the more heinous actions of the Moron-In-Chief, Gather management has unilaterally decided to wipe out an entire family of contributors. The Subaheim-Wurbizer clan, who joined our ranks less than a week ago to enlighten us with fascinating insights into the lives of Park Avenue gentry, has been summarily wiped out. With a single click of a form letter, an entire limb of this patrician Swabian-American family has been thrown into the Gatherchipper, reduced to mulch with which to nourish the crop of crap that passes as “content” on this benighted site.
The question that must be answered is WHY? What Term of Service did the estimable Ursula, the gilded Gisele, the aristocratic Klaus…even the innocent Kennedy assault? What crime against man or nature did this sterling example of haute monde commit? They were passionate about the Essentials of Life, generous in sharing their wisdom and gracious in opening their lives to our scrutiny. The unique voice that brought to life this fascinating (and hilariously entertaining) group has been silenced, without warning, without reason, without habeas corpus.
And yet, according to every email I have ever received from Headquarters, “Gather is a place to connect with people who share your passions. Let your unique voice shine through the articles, images, reviews, or audio you publish”.
Is it just me, or is it starting to smell a little bushy in here?
