Okay, y'all pay close attention here.
Earlier this morning, I spent about 20 minutes on the phone with Kim and Connie. Take note that I did not use their last name in this post?
A message for everyone from them both, as related by me:
All is well. Connie will soon publish, (and may have by time you read this), a brief explanation of their circumstances, and what it will mean to any future writing/blogging from either of them. I can tell you that they are under no duress, save for the imperative of having to make a living and keep a roof over their heads.
I can also tell you that I am de-linking to the archives which I had pointed to, yesteday. It is their earnest request that you all do likewise, and that, immediately.
Kim and I are discussing ways for me to host his essays, in such a manner that the KdT name does not keep popping up in Google searches. Expect a delay of at least one month for this to transpire.
When Connie publishes her update, I shall copy it in full here, and any of you who host a interested blog ought to do likewise. Please to that, rather than hotlinking to her site. Again, the purpose is to lower their Google visibility as much as possible.
Be assured, Connie will give as much detail as is suitable to make public.
Watch this space for further Kim & Connie developments.
UPDATE: 13:14 CST. From Connie dT
If we could give an explanation we would. Since we can't, we can't. It's sort of the point that we can't (or we would have). For those who have expressed genuine concern: we're fine. We're needing to move to a new chapter in our lives. Our blogs are closed permanently. We're working to "move" the forum to another guardian/location. We apologize for the suddenness of it and for scaring some folks, but it really could not be helped.
Speculations about black helicopter scenarios and such should be stopped. It is nothing like that.
If there was a way of saying more or giving some sort of explanation, we would, but we can't.
Thanks to all who played.
Godspeed, Kim, Connie & kids. We'll see you 'round the net when you're able.
