The support has been immense, and you can see how much this has grown in that time.
The support I have got from the community and Hasbro has been inspiring, and it has encouraged me to want to make it grow with a passion I share with all fans. Well nearly all fans.
Apologies to Nerf Mods & Reviews for this pic, to clarify - BlackBoarderV (now ex-mod on NM&R) had banned me at the time and was further slandering me with other hearsay from UK Nerf War.
I mentioned I was proud of my traffic - because it is an indicator to show the support from the community, and it would appear for some people it's not enough. They have to go ahead and steal it. I'm kindly requesting this be put right. They have mislead fans. That's not a prank, that's being malicious in whatever light it's painted in. If I wanted a billion hits i'd make a Psy Gangnam or Bieber blog.
In the background I have had some comments, and if you have read my about me section you will know I will not tolerate any bullying remarks made against me or others in any form. Blogging is a new thing for me and I have been overzealous and made mistakes. I admit that, and I have learnt how to better conduct myself in the NIC. What I post just shows my passion for it without any malicious intent, but it seems some do not like my passion or the way I run my blog. You Live, You Learn, and I have.
There is an element of healthy competition in the NIC (Nerf Internet Community) but this is taking it too far. Borderline malicious.
Thankfully fans who care about what I do have brought it to my attention that certain people are stealing my traffic and hits, namely by creating domain names in my name, referring back to themselves: www.mylastdart.com and www.mylastdart.co.uk. Try it yourself and let me know what you think.
I spoke to UK Nerf War only last night when I asked the question as to why he deemed my site to be unfit under his UK Nerf links section - it's his own perogative what he does and doesn't put there, I was simply seeking feedback. Clearly he didn't want readers to be aware of what they had done.
In essence this means they have tried to sabotage my hits and prevent me from owning my own domain name. I did not see this blog growing as quickly as it had done and certainly not more than this webspace but these guys see me going further than we both envisaged and want to put a stop to it - if not take it for themselves. I can assure you that when you click on these links they are not me. And they are not affiliated with me.
These pranksters in all their wisdom have not protected their personal information, which I have noted. While it is not illegal to buy a domain name it is illegal to impersonate others; persons; groups; corporations; or brands; and to steal the aforementioned intellectual property rights (IP Law).
I urge the individuals to make an apology for their disgraceful actions and to put this right before I seek further litigiation on Monday morning.
Your comments are welcome.
