We at James Proclaims fully recognise our role in the continuing propagation of low-quality, ill-informed content that continues to plague the blogosphere.
In particular, we cannot ignore our contribution to the unhelpful trend of publishing mediocre, and occasionally very bad poetry. Our continuing barbarism of the once elegant Haiku form is particularly troubling and does not represent our values.
We apologise fully, and with humility, to all those who have suffered and to those who are still suffering because we were happy to post sub-standard posts in order to generate more ‘likes’.
We can do better. We must do better. We probably won’t do better.
We do understand that an insincere apology perplexingly written in the first-person plural is a strange way to address these issues.
We are fully aware that, even though it shouldn’t, this apology will probably still get some ‘likes’.
And we definitely will keep writing the haikus.
But you can be assured that we will do so with an appropriate sense of shame.
