For people who are sending us "Blind Items":
This is our every-so-often pep talk about "blind items" that are submitted to us through the link on your left. Do not send press releases masked as "buzz" through the blind items, it is tacky. We don't run them, AND then we don't look kindly upon your show. Please do not use the blind item to try and take on a personal crusade against BTN because your J&H DVD did not arrive. No one cares. All 15 people who bought the DVD would have been better served by getting a free private performance of J&H in their parents house. Perhaps N*Sync could open for J&H. And accusing BroadwayStars of not having integrity (when did I *ever* say we had integrity!) is not the way to make us take up the cause. And no, we have no financial ties to BTN. I think we actually may have more cash-flow then them. On other notes, we do not care who is sleeping with whom, who has what sexually transmitted disease, and what you really think of us. This is not the place for personal attacks (well, at least ones that can get us sued) and if you don't like our website, go somewhere else. Is it really that hard? And BTW, it is especially tacky to try and flood our blind items mailbox with the same information pretending to be from multiple people... do you really think that the technology does not tell us who the sender is? Blind Items are really not too blind. They just allow for deniability.
