I Had To Pull It

Well, dang. I just had to pull a post. I now we're supposed to leave our posts up for a minimum of three months but, this one had to go. It wasn't out of embarrassment but out of danger.

See, some information just can't be allowed to fall into the wrong hands.

Okay, the truth is, I screwed up and had to make a correction in my approach. Yes, even LoudMan makes the occasional mistake. Believe it or not, it does sometimes happen.

Rather than dig my heels in and make things worse, though, I think it's important to just admit my error and correct my actions. There is no face to save. I am wrong and had to move from within that reality.

We have to be extremely careful what we share here, so as to not damage the reputation of this fledgling site. It would be wrong to send a baby into combat and I have no desire to see ruined, what is a good thing coming.

I had to pull a post the other night shortly after I published it, someone pointed out something that might not be accurate and I didn't have the time at that point to double check and fix it if necessary. It was an article I wrote years ago and I am 100% sure the facts were correct then, but I really should have double checked that they still were. I do plan to repost it once I have had the time to double check everything but I figured it was better to take it down just in case until I have checked everything, rather than give out incorrect information by accident.

I hear you, there. Incorrect, out-dated medical information can kill someone, or worse.

wasn't medical, and I doubt it would have killed anyone and I am reasonably sure its still somewhat accurate although may need worded slightly differently. Either way I pulled it because I couldn't be bothered with the debate and didn't have time to check the facts again.

to come up at the worst times, too. Never mind how some folks use cheating ploys and lie to support their position(s). LOL! The timing is the worst part. :)

It happens. We all make mistakes, but when we realize there's something we can do to correct one or more of them, it is a relief.

I am sorry to hear this. I take it that it was the one about foreign exercises? That's a pity. Hope it wasn't anything I said. emoticon :sad:

It's a hard road to just be spontaneous in writing .

OK, Loudman , I have an offer for you. I have a document (in Word format) containing 3,000 words with 66 tips on losing weight, without applying to a particular diet. The document belongs to me and is not published anywhere else, though I don't guarantee that some of these tips will not appear elsewhere. It is NOT PLR, so there should not be any duplicate issues but I haven't checked it with any plagiarism (duplicate) site. Weight loss is a big market, so hopefully, people will be interested in buying it and I have used American spelling where I know it. I am willing to send you this document for selling, in the same way as you were going to sell the other document, for the benefit of whoever you wish, including PersonaPaper, unless the reason you pulled the other one was because of possible legal issues? You can do with this document what you want. For instance you can edit it or add your referral tracker number, you can add tips or take some out or you can include this document in some other document if you wish. The only stipulation is that it should not become part of some non-family-friendly site. I would love to know how you get on with selling this document but that is not a requirement for you to use it. Any posts on getting it to go viral would be much appreciated!
