To Tod Maffin's mom, he'll always be a winner

From 2005

"Some bg: My son, Tod (who was the founder of "Anglicans Online" -
egads ... that's ten years ago!) has been a CBC (Canada's national
broadcaster) radio personality, technology consultant and program
host. One of the things he does as a hobby is to put out a blog
called "I Love Radio."

Well, it seems that it has been nominated for a prestigious award -
the Business Blogging Awards (proud Mom beams from ear to ear! )
and the decision will go this Tuesday to the technology blog that gets
the most votes. So, what's the favour?

It's that you will "vote" online for "I Love Radio" at Business Awards
today before midnight."

Hi Allan!

Thanks for emailing me from the Youtube party, and mocking me for not being there. (Uhm, you DO know I don't live in Toronto, right? -- Oh shit, are you going to mock me for not spelling "Um" right?!)

I'm sorry I haven't visited your "Tod Maffin is a prick" web site more frequently. I'm totally flattered that you're still stalking me!

Please don't stop. My blog (, consulting web site (, and CBC work has hugely jumped in traffic since you started your campaign.

Let me know if there is anything I can do to support you. Obviously, you know my email address ( I can provide you with pictures, videos, images, or whatever you need.

P.S. As an aside, for someone who claims to be a champion of "free speech," isn't it peculiar that you don't allow anonymous comments?

Tod, I don't understand your concern and insistence about people being able to post anonymously.
Surely that's not something you need to do.
And we clearly have differing views about what constitutes free speech.
If you want, you got.

As for needing support - I'm ok so far.
But if you're so magnanimous these days, how's come I'm still "Forbidden" to access your self-serving blogs?

Are you starting to sense that your credibility is just about non-existent?

Are you starting to realize that you actually have nothing more to offer in most of your endeavors?

What's your problem?

Tod Maffin's version of absolute power.
I wrote a comment at a famous blog.
Tod didn't like it, and took the intial steps of legal action to have it removed.
He was successful.

It made me an unhappy camper.
And I happen to really like it here.
