kiwiblogblog is no moremore

Sadly, kiwiblogblog is dead.

It comes as no surprise, given the drop-off in posts and comments in recent months. The team found that they just didn’t have the time to commit to the enterprise. Many of us know the feeling.

We can but wish them well in their endeavours. And hope to see some or all of them blogging in some capacity again before too long. In the meantime we’ll miss their zany and slightly off-beat missives.

The rest of us progressive/left-wing bloggers will just have to work that much harder to cover the loss. Listen up righties — we shall!

Bye Mardypants, Cheezy, Zoster, Wat and Icky. Been nice knowing you.

    Hopefully a new blog or 5 will start tomorrow that picks up the slack…. 🙂

    Oh deardear; how sadsad; never mindmind!

    Seriously though, it’s always sad to see a blog fall over, but I guess a single-issue blog like KBB had a limited shelf-life. Gotta say though – the obsession with “Davey” was a bit worrying!

    Ah what a pity, but yes, the whole concept was a bit too flattering of Farrarcreche for my liking. Will miss Wat’s excellent graphs and analysis, but as you say others will take up the slack.
    Your own efforts are excellent by the way, and deserve far more comments – it’s just that you’re far too reasonable and eloquent to disagree with or augment! Try deliberate lies or posting drunk or porn or something….works for the Right!

    Thanks for the eulogy pete. Inventory’s not too far from the mark, however – we had redevelopment plans but they would have meant managing compliance with the EFA and for us that seemed simply too onerous. We were never obsessed with David per se – we were interested in challenging his claim to be independent. He’s not and others now occupy the space we would otherwise have cultivated. That’s a perfectly acceptable outcome and it’s not like we don’t continue to be active elsewhere in the blogosphere or have other demands on our time.

    They were there solely to smear and malign DPF in order to try and destroy his reputation. KBB did it, the Standard do it, Newzblog does it. Typical fucking leftists, all lies and smears, can’t stand up to logic or reason.

    And the prize for hyperbole goes too…

    David’s a big boy with broad enough sholders to withstand our modest criticisms. I doubt very much he needs your protection. By the way, you’re welcome to show me where KBB lied in any of our posts.
