Feel Free To Access Johnny Northside Dot Com From Work--Site Meter Is Now Restricted!

Recently, friends in the blogger world pointed out how the "site meter" on Johnny Northside Dot Com was unrestricted, which was allowing anybody--even thug hugging revitalization haters--to access highly technical info about which "IP addresses" are reading or even blogging on Johnny Northside Dot Com.

In the last couple years of intense blogging I've learned it's NOT the thugs you have to worry about when you take on the kind of "Urban Utopia" mission which Johnny Northside Dot Com has embraced. No, rather, there is a layer of internet-accessing "thug huggers" who jump to the defense of crack whores, sex offenders, mortgage fraudsters, and other criminal no accounts because of deeply rooted flaws in their messed up psyches. These thug huggers need to be dealt with just like a blocked storm sewer or a tree fallen after a windstorm or a crack whore on the corner needs to be dealt with. It's ugly, it's stinky, and it's hard work, but what are you going to do? Let evil win?

Most of these "thug apologisits" don't even LIVE in North Minneapolis, though there are plenty of times they will PRETEND to live in North Minneapolis for personal gain.

Since publishing highly technical site meter info is not the goal of my blog--it's far too boring and geeky--and since I love frustrating the trolls who cluster in the dark virtual corners of the blogosphere--I've decided to restrict the site meter so only those with administrative privileges (moi!) can access that data.

If you are reading Johnny Northside from work or even commenting and contributing to Johnny Northside from work, let me assure you nobody will be the wiser...including me.
