Well, here we are again! And so nice to see so many more of you have joined my amazing congregation over the last week to sit down and listen to the ramblings of old Reverend Grim once again on the ways of the United Temple of BlackBerry, and for that, I thank you.
Respect where respect is due, its a two way street after all and if not for you amazing BlackBerrians I wouldn’t be here every week battering the (ha) Bleatings of the sad sheeple!
As you have probably gathered, this weeks sermon is about RESPECT…
Like I just said, respect is a two way street and there seem to be a few people/websites/fansites etc that need a lesson or two in the meaning of the word!
You know who you are and I’m pretty sure you read these blogs on the United Temple of BlackBerry for a few reasons, I hope one is to try and get back to your roots and become what you set out to be and not what you have become, a bunch of trolls!
BlackBerry is ‘The Daddy’ of smartphones, first the GSM BlackBerry 6210, BlackBerry 6220, and BlackBerry 6230 devices in 2003. Also released was the Blackberry 7730 which featured a colour screen, there were a few ‘smartphones’ from other manufacturers in earlier days but the company that really made the market and the first true smartphone…
And there have been a few ‘fansites’ pop up saying they are pro BlackBerry but in reality put down the Good News and hype up the bad news on the BlackBerry front while also abandoning our beloved handset in favour of inferior… Crap! AND then to add insult to injury saying “I won’t ever come #BackToBlack” on a so called fansite!
BlackBerry put you where you are today you iMbeciles! Show some respect!
If you don’t want to follow the righteous path then fine, go away and have fun with your HTC or whatever, just do it quiet and then when your world falls apart and you come crawling #BackToBlack you will see how forgiving we are, people may open their arms and welcome you back, but shouting about it, putting down the thing that got you recognized by THOUSANDS of LOYAL BlackBerry users… well, that’s just damn right rude and DISRESPECTFUL!
And as for those that run the said site… if you had any respect for the company that built you up and put you where you are…
YOU WOULDN’T ALLOW THAT SORT OF THING! You are just as bad and just as disrespectful as the said… iDiot! There was another way for him to go you know, quietly for example, maybe a goodbye from him saying he had a lot of commitments elsewhere (like an Androidian site maybe, front and Central) and that due to this he was leaving to expand his knowledge for the time being but may well be back soon (once the malware hits or the phone gets hacked or it slows to a crawl or the NSA blurt out all his personal information and arrest him for illegal activities) but in the meantime we at said (so called) fansite wish you good luck and goodbye…
Who would know? Who would get upset? More importantly… Who would care?
If these sites want to be multi platform then fine, be multi platform, just slag off each platform equally as well as big up each platform equally… oh, and get a name that says you are multi platform instead of coaxing in new and inexperienced BlackBerry users and trolling them for asking simple questions that, lets face it, none of us knew once upon a time.
All these newbies are, really, are younger you’s and me’s, learning that hey, BlackBerry 10 is great, secure and just what I need, not sitting there thinking, I only wanted to know where files are saved once received through BBM and this lot are treating me like… Anyway, can you see where I’m coming from? Show the newbies some respect!
Why? you ask…
Because these are the ones that will help build BlackBerry back to its former glory which, in turn, will build you up (if you are a true fansite) bigger and better still AND will be the future Ambassadors of BlackBerry that will help the next generation of newbies feel that they have made the right choice.
So, come on, if you are reading this or getting told about my sermons please do the right thing, show some respect and get your house in order, get rid of the rotten apples (love that phrase) and be what got you to where you are today… A TRUE BLACKBERRY FANSITE just like the ONLY one I will affiliate to – UTB!
Gain Respect by Giving It!
And that my congregation is the end of this weeks sermon, I hope you have gained something out of this and it has given you (or at least SOME of you) food for thought.
And as the night draws in here in Blighty I wish you a good evening and a peaceful nights sleep, knowing that all your personal details are safely tucked up as well on the Daddy of smartphones…
That is of course if you have a BlackBerry, if not… well, good luck and hope the ‘Bugs’ don’t bite!
Remember @CRAPPLEBASHING and utbblogs.com/forum for all your BlackBerry needs where ALL my United Temple of BlackBerry brothers and sisters are waiting for you to help in any way shape or form… within reason of course, we don’t get paid so we won’t help with the rent!
Or the rant…
Reverend Grim out!
