Emmanuel Vivier, der Organisator von blogdelux hat sich wieder dazu herabgelassen, mit mir zu kommunzieren. Er hat meinen letzten Eintrag zum Thema blogdelux kommentiert.
Und da schreibt er folgendes:

Dear Herr Joël Adami (I use this formula since this is your special request), if you want to start a conversation and be a bit more constructive, maybe stop acting with so much anger, fantasizing about mysterious conspiracies and launching misleading accusations (Lola, Alex, me… are everyone who disagree with you fake bloggers?!) or misrepresenting the facts. If you want to have answers maybe just start by asking them nicely vs “I want answers” and setting up ultimatums.
No need to shout to be heard… We have no problem to answer if you don't do the questions and the answers and if you really are ready to listen. If not, stay alone with your « préjugés »… Don't blame people for not being that much interested in talking with you when they have invited you to meet them and you just have keep trashing them obsesively or judge them without even knowing them. I am used and amused to see that it is always the people who never invest time and energy organizing a thing who always generate most of the critics…
Ich denke, darauf sollte man doch antworten, was? Also mal los:
Dearest of my friends in buzz-viral-marketing, Mister Emmanuel Vivier,
Thank you for commenting my humble blog! No thanks for using the right formula in speaking to strangers. I think that is a total normal form of politeness. As an “blog-expert” your surely know that in the german blogosphere, the polite form is used in most comments between blogger, sometimes even between good friends.
I think I AM contructive. I am asking you questions. I don't publish any conspiracy theories, but I am just guessing, and asking you to say how the things are. I want to know your opinion, your view of sight of this problem. I've asked nicley, but you didn't even reacted for a week, neither by comment nor by email. If I AM misrepresenting the facts, as you say, why don't you just say how it is?
I never said a word about “fake-bloggers”. Some people have this idea, I am not sure if they are right, but Don Alphonso is a person that has a very big knowledge about these things, so he's likley to be right. If not, why just a demento from culture-buzz? There was NO communication between you and me since your last posting, you never reacted. Yesterday I even set you on my skype-list to give you the chance to communicate directly with me, even if I think there MUST be a open discussion.
I AM ready to listen, but so far, there are no answers. Not in your blog, nor in comments or per mail.
I reacted to the meetings, with my conditions that are still actual. Open discussion. Why be closed? I think closed communication in this case is against everything the blogosphere stands for. You want to meet me? Ok, let's meet tomorrow evening. But with a microphone. Please, talk to me, tell me everything you want to tell, but do it in a maner that everybody can listen/read (to) it. Do you think this is wrong?
Every time when I asked WHY I should meet with somebody, they just stopped the communication. No you are blaming me not wanting to meet because I've just asked why you want to meet me! I am very sorry, but I don't understand this. But perhaps you can explain me everything! I am still believing that this could happen! I would seem to me like a miracle, but there are so much strange things happening every day on the streets, my dearest friends of all buzz-viral-blog-marketing-people, so there is still a possibilty to convince me.
For all your talk about people not organising things generating most of the critics:
Most of the people criticizing you have organised things. Don Alphonso has even written a book about blogging, Thierry and me started together with some other bloggers from Luxemburg organising a blog-meeting. (There is even a forum where we discussed.) I personal am working on a project to organise reading-sessions from bloggers and other writers. And there is some important point that I think you've missed:
You are paid to do this. Organising blogdelux is your WORK. Speaking for Thierry, Don Alphonso and me, we are doing the projects in our free-time. It would be very nice from you to consider this if you speak about us as “non-organisers”.
And there is another point: I don't know how familiar you are with this, but at the very moment you publish or do something in public your work can be the target of critics. Perhaps in PR and marketing the things are a bit different (I don't know about it!), but it is very normal that there are people saying things about your work. Even things that don't please you. The normal attitude is talking with this people and learning from the things that they say.
At the moment, I think you are just trying to win time until saturday. At the moment, I don't think you will ever answer my questions, because you'd have to confess that you'd made a mistake in not giving the same informations to the bloggers as you gave to the press. But I don't know this. You could change my opinion, Mister Emmanual Vivier.
If you want to do so, just start answering my questions concering blogdelux. I am asking you courteously to do so.
