I don't usually respond to childish, passive aggressive behaviour, and I don't like fanning the flames of inane online bitch wars, but this time, I'm not going to sit with my thumbs up my ass, no matter how good it might feel. Hollywood Tuna has called me out as a "copy cat," and in his "imaginative," "overly sensitive" mind, I suppose that's what I am.
Do we have similar content? Yes. Does every other babe-centric gossip blog have similar content? Yes. I won't apologize for posting content that I think my readers will enjoy. And I sure as heck (I wanted to use a harsher word, but the kids are watching) won't let any other site claim that I am "using all of [their] material." Last time I checked, quoting a news source, or posting a video that was uploaded to YouTube is what blogs do.
The funniest part of what was written, though, is that he puportedly conducts himself "ethically." I won't go into details about how far that is from the truth, because frankly, it's none of your business, and you don't really care, but I have never known Hollywood Tuna to act ethically.
I'm sorry I had to waste your time responding to these jealous, and petty rants, and that's all I will say on the matter.
