If  you’re reading this page, you are undoubtedly looking for answers about the old Pool Cue News blog.  Well, sadly I’m not going to be able to help you out much in this department.  If you were a reader back in late May 2011, you probably know what the deal was, but suffice it to say, here’s the long and short of it:

  • Schmuck creates anonymous pool and billiards blog
  • Said schmuck says many things, some of which were quite regrettable
  • Said schmuck gets outed
  • Said schmuck panics, wipes entire server and goes all Anthony Weiner on it, claiming hackers
  • Said schmuck quickly realizes this move was an error and owns it, making a public statement about the blog and its purpose
  • Said schmuck starts new blog with a new, non-anonymous feel, griping about all sorts of random crap, some of which is still billiards industry specific, in the process (as it still is a cathartic exercise)

Which leads us to where we are today.  If you want more, check the Teachable Moments category, as I’ll refer to the old blog and what I learned from it there. Otherwise, kick back and enjoy the transparency.
