      Haha, I love the way people have left me fan mail stating what number they are haha.

      I have a bad feeling that if I promoted it as a game then I would get banned again lol. Maybe not the best idea.

    On a serious note - a lot of people have been banned recently - I suppose that could have affected it...

      I know how you feel. I suppose the reason I was annoyed because it was such a coincidental milestone - I got 80 fans and 2500 views at the same time. Like - literally the same time. Usually it wouldn't bother me but for some reason - this time, it did. Anyway, it's rectified now.

    I'm not normally too bothered but the fact you gained so many just from this plea not from content is a little irritating I must say...

      L. Andrew Marrposted 8 years agoin reply to this

      It wasn't a plea for new fans - it was a plea for my old ones back haha. My views have gone up as well so some people must have read my work as well.

      But I can understand why it is frustrating. Spam adders frustrate me as well and this is no better really.

      SO on that note -

      THANK YOU to all of you who have shown support; HOWEVER, please do not fan me unless you like my work.

      Cheers.

      Luke

                Not really my usual style and I don't think worthy of a hub so I'll just show you here tongue


                Flash your cash and spin the wheel,
                Don’t give a damn about how others might feel.
                Your hand is poor even holding four aces,
                You keep the drones hostage, that crowd of blank faces.

                Style before substance is how you live.
                It’s all a show, you’ve got nothing to give.
                Empty words and phrases, you speak the lie,
                What you say means nothing, just pie in the sky.

      I didn't bump anyone - I was banned for a while for being underage. I returned the week after my 18th Birthday with no fans! It was hell trying to get everyone back.
