So, I just had someone ask me about a "rumor" that Metro Weekly hasn't published in three weeks. Aside from the fact that it's demonstrably false -- we took off Thanksgiving in print only, which we communicated multiple times through the magazine and web site -- I know that there are about eight to ten people who have been spreading these kinds of rumors over the past two years or so. My favorite was sitting by for 24 months while as certain someone claimed, "Metro Weekly is going out of business in three months."
I know who you are. I've been inclined to ignore you because that's what I generally do with people like you. But if this goes one step further, then I'm done ignoring you. And I know this message will reach every one of you. Learn to play nice and enjoy the holidays. Or not. Your choice.
