How Have you guys not commented on this?
to answer your question: combination of ennui/boredom, kade's act getting stale, and not wanting to give him pageviews. it's been 11 months and it's the same shit over and over. we've been reblogging it for 5 months now! it gets old! the only reason we write anything original now is bc our fans are awesome and email us promising tips/leads and bc we can just copy/paste kade's story for open comments. we can't bring ourselves to care enough to work on it...Most of us have real jobs and real lives, so our time to deal with Kade is limited. I'm a resident physician in Psychiatry and within a few months of starting this place, Kade had already run his course for me, after I commented on his mental illness and examined his sickness from a few perspectives. When I said it feels like we're poking a chimpanzee with a stick (up above), that was a sign that we've dehumanized Kade, because we don't want to feel that a human behave so stupidly. When I meet with patients, I don't point at them and laugh, I try to size up what is wrong, what I can do for them, and how I can help them end their pain. It's pretty presumptuous for all of us to assume Kade isn't dealing with a lot of pain/trauma. I'm convinced most of his actions are a way of masking a deep inner emptiness--people do this everyday, and just because Kade is more public about it or has less class doesn't make it right to laugh. The solution I've come up with is that we should keep this blog open, to promote the truth behind the lies and allow public, uncensored commenting (unlike Kade's blog). We have enough moderators and editors to post up Kade's crap so we can save it for posterity. However, I think I've come to the end of wanting to actively participate in the mockery of Arthur Kade.
i can't speak for all the other editors of the blog, but it certainly seems like we're torn between wanting to keep roasting him and just letting him toil in obscurity, each day becoming more and more obscure and pathetic. this is why some of our tactics have been to report on original content (the truth behind him and the nontourage and his parents) rather than to re-blog his posts. just in case (1% chance) anyone considers him for a reality show, we don't want producers/casting people to see that his youtube videos get significant hits. and the only way he'll get those hits is if we keep giving him attention. all the comments we get from philly people show that kade is relatively unknown and obscure, except amongst a particular strata of party people--the type that go to "clubs", try to hook up, try to impress people even though they're kind of stupid, and tend towards casual drug use. i can't get that excited about bashing on those types of losers. easy targets, to say the least.
as a community (not just the site admins, but also the commentors and tipsters) we have already shown the world that "the emperor has no clothes" (i.e. that kade is a fraud). it was satisfying, but most of the satisfaction has gone out of it. i blog at a few other sites and i have message boards like 419eater.com to keep me busy/entertained. the site rebloggingns.wordpress.com is also a great read because the fameball in question is more interesting and has a few connections, puts up a good fight, etc (i recommend that blog to all our readers). at this point, kade is a passing amusement for 5 minutes, 2 or 3x a week. it's also kind of like torturing a dumber-than-average monkey at this point. kade doesn't put up a good fight on his end, so it's sad.
sorry if that's not the answer you wanted... probably the way you could help LWK Blog the most is to spread the word and just post comments. the site will stay up forever as a monument to these douches and we will copy down his idiotic posts for posterity. so if you're interested, that will always be there.
I just wanted to post this so our readers can see what's going on at this point... Feel free to comment below. This site has become sort of a community, where funny comments and good tips win out over boring douchebaggery at Kade's blog. You all have been a big reason this thing took off and that's why I wanted to share this email and these thoughts with you. Also, for all the tipsters and people who know Kade, keep sending in the information, because it's been useful in establishing the truth behind this crap. If Kade knew who some of these people are who tip us off, he would seriously die. He thinks a lot of these people are his friends, it's really funny stuff.
