She also deleted one "negative" comment from the auction page, which basically just said, "don't expect the money to keep rolling in once Cathy leaves." Which is very, very true. All nuts.
Wow! Simply Wow! 18 grands! And wasn't she the one who said "public should be public" or something like that? And now removing comments? :roll:

I doubt she'll get what she wants... People like to read, but don't like to pay...

Edit: just read the link about the blog... If it makes $1+K/month, why not to keep it? Like extra-income... Did she run-off the ideas what to bs about?

The average cost of a website is one year's revenue. If it were anything other than a blog that has popularity only because of what she writes, specifically her, then it would have sold already. Probably for around 12k or so. Plenty of buyers who have the money and buy up profitable websites.

Whoever said the money won't roll in anymore once she is gone is right. The traffic will die down and the $$$$ will stop. I suspect that's why it hasn't sold yet.

JMO, but-
Snark is so tasteless ,...., so very UN 'classy'.
So simple minded,...,

LOL, I could go on, but why bother giving 'snark' a podium.

Although, I KNOW the Fugly Blog did point out A LOT of wrongs,
and definitely brought about some positive change.

I honestly don't have any problems with that,
I'm more disgusted by those that, snark, for 'snark's sake'

(LOL Opps, now my tongue is twisted)
