On the Art of Making Val Prieto Work for Me

I always knew this to be true but now I have absolute confirmation of it: Val Prieto is the most hated blogger in the Cuban-American blogosphere. The last three days have set records at the RCAB; never before have so many visitors converged here -- and on a weekend, no less ; and since during all that time my rebuke of Val was the lead article, I can only presume that it attracted them here in droves. Now, if Val would only oblige me by posting something so stupid every day, giving me the opportunity to dissect it, I am sure that I could do in 4 months' time what it took Val & Company 4 years to accomplish. I confess that I am tempted to make the previous post the permanent lead article, for I feel it still has much mileage in it. But I must not be content to let Val sit on these thorny laurels forever because I think I can do better. Yes, I am sure I can and I will.

Seems a lot of bloggers do hate him, as per the article on top, I don't know who Andy is, I presume he's Cuban, seems he dislikes him too, prety soon Val wont have a friend in the blogsphere.

Yes, Andy is Cuban. He writes for the frankly-named blog A Grand Illusion. He has no love for Val or Henry; but does harbor plenty of illusions, grand and otherwise, about Oscar Corral and Ana Menéndez. We shall endeavor to cure him of them if he can be cured. Odd how he can admire in Oscar and Ana what he detests in Val & Henry, but, then again, he wears his illusions on his sleeve.

How can you dislike Val & Henry, but like Oscar & Ana, something is wrong there, yes we need to cure him of that mentality soon

Prove it, make public your site meter, as most of the anti-castro blogs have. Otherwise, you're just blowing hot air.

Don't take my word for it, it is the "honorable" blog standard.
Check it out and go public, until you do, you have no credibility.

No, I will not make public the RCAB sitemeter; and no, most blogs, Cuban or otherwise, do not do so either. I will share no confidential information regarding this blog with anyone, much less its enemies.

You can believe me or not believe, I don't care either way.

You, Ziva, have lost most of your credibility in my eyes by your shameless pandering to lesser talents.
