Okay, so not really, but given the back and forth over the years between HLS and the now-defeated Subway Domer, I think it’s an appropriate headline.
But really, more seriously, even in our clear and overwhelming victory we at HLS are sad to see SD go. A voice of
reason insanity and calm profanity for years, SD was a mainstay that we will all, very seriously, miss. (for real, we will, as we dance our victorious dance on his grave).
Sure, he had his moments and there were times where the outcome of this battle was in question.
Through some kind of witchcraft, he took down Poot. We took the blow and kept fighting.
After years of battling in the trenches, DomerMQ eventually succumbed to Subway’s might. We soldiered on.
Subway upped the ante with an amazingly talented staff, filled with multimedia might and X’s and O’s and Twittermania.
While jealous, we hung on for dear, dear life.
He took down HLS via 404 errors over and over again. And over. And over. And over. Such that we all thought the site might never, ever work again. We JUST BARELY survived.
And then? He could give us no more. We had rope-a-doped the Domer into submission. Victory? Or did we all lose? Only time will tell. Fare thee well, Subway Domer. As a lion misses it’s prey once devoured, we will miss thee.
BUT! There is a silver lining to the carnage that was the ND Blog War. From the ashes of Domer’s demise will rise a NEW and more POWERFUL, AND FULLY OPERATIONAL BATTLE STATION!
Um, I mean, blog.
It’s with this post that I officially announce the merging of Her Loyal Sons and The Subway Domer! To create….
HER LOYAL DOMERS!
THE SUBWAY LOYALS!
Screw it, we are staying HLS but bringing on all of the amazing talent from The Subway Domer to join our ranks. There. Yay.
And it is going to kick ass.
We (meaning Tex) still have much to do to integrate the teams, to build a site that can handle all of the talent, media and traffic that will be produced as a result of the merger. But from the ashes of this war a new, vibrant and re-energized community shall rise!
HER LOYAL SONS REIGNS SUPREME! MMMMWAHAHAHAHAHAH!
Anyway, welcome to the new members of the team. And we hope you like it!
