My good friend from Generation Cobweb recently ran across a site and shared it with me. Then he asked me how he could exchange links with said site. So I looked and found out you can’t. I am tired of sites that won’t exchange links and even more tired of the great god google that encourages it. So I wrote the following:
when a friend told me about your site I was immediately interested. I agree it is time to clean up corruption and anyone who makes the effort is a good public citizen. However as a netizen I find your site sadly lacking and way short of my humble expectations. I could find no outside links at all on your site. That is contrary to the spirit of the web and your stated mission.
On the front page you claim you have the solution to corruption, I submit it is thinking like yours that breeds corruption. By not linking to any other site the message you are sending is that you and you alone have all the answers. The same myopic elitist attitude that has been the standard in Washington for years.
Why should I trust someone who says, “you don’t need to listen to anyone else, I have all the answers”? You say on your web site you want to be a one-stop-shopping location – so doesn’t WalMart and I don’t trust them either.
I appreciate what you are doing but don’t like the way you are doing it. This country needs fewer super stores and more mom and pop stands. People need to start listening to each other and not ‘authorities’. I think you need to ask yourself if CleanUpWashington is really about cleaning up Washington or just a place where you can puff up your own ego.
