Al's Views, Personal Thoughts


10 March 2002

inputHow many hours, days, weeks, and years must someone work without noticable reader response before he finally gives up and assumes that NO BODY CARES? This man is nearing that point. The fact is, throughout all these years, I have only heard from a handful of individuals, many of whom I have turned into regulars on Giant Killers. Despite this fact, the web site received 1.35 Million hits in 2001.

inputWhen I started this venture, I did so out of inspiration. I fully believe that our Creator, our God, the Father, as well as His Son, Jesus, had intentioned for me to do this. However, there comes a point when I have to ask myself, "is anyone out there?" We're getting the hits, but no feedback. Surely we're not doing everything 100% right.

inputEvery publication needs to hear from its readers, both those who tune in because they like what they read as well as those who tune in because they don't. I've made quite a few good friends and made many allies because of Giant Killers. But, by the same token, I know that I've made many enemies. Yes, I'm discouraged because of the lack of outward interest, by way of e-mail or U.S. Postal responses.

inputNo, I'm not going to cease publication, but I want you to know that your input would be 1) helpful to me, and 2) helpful to others as I strive to make what we do better. What I'm asking you to do is take a few minutes to share with me your thoughts concerning Giant Killers. Here are some of the things that I would like to know:

inputIn a word, I'd like to get to know each and every one of you who frequent this web site from time to time. No, you don't have to tell me your real name, as well as what you do for a living, but just answering the above questions would be helpful so I better understand who is reading this web site. Yes, we do collect some data, but that data is not all that helpful.

inputI want you to know that privacy is also a priority with www.GiantKillers.Org. Not one shred of the information we glean from your visit and communications ever leaves www.GiantKillers.Org. You have never been added to anyone's e-mail list or been solicited by a manufacturer of anything because you visited this site. I can also assure you that we have no intention of selling any of your information to profiteers--and no, I'm not against capitalism, but I clearly stand in opposition to Socialism/Communism (and I do not intend to apologize for that either).

inputIn closing, after spending a significant amount of money and time to make www.GiantKillers.Org happen, it would be very nice if our readers would participate in its continuation. As you know, I often publish comments with only the writer's initials. I strictly observe privacy at every level. All I ask for is some feedback.

inputHey, before I "Short Circuit,"
smileI need "INPUT"!!

Thank you;

Al Colombo, publisher
