She works alot and I'm not sure she is still a huge fan. I have no use for her...I don't go to her site and don't pay.

Ugossip, I was told he uses the money to buy school suppies for his students. As you know, America can pay for one war after another but we can't supply our teachers with the things they need to teach their(our) students.

My goodness Ardith, I finally found a common ground with you. LOL. The state of America's educational system is sensitive subject with me.

As far as I know, KR doesn't own and/or run a fan site; therefore, he and/or his team have no say how any of them are run.

They can't control personal blogs and how they're run. You said it yourself, Chicks pays for the photos. If she wants to charge admission to recapture her overhead costs, it's her "business". Literally. Business success is based on supply and demand. As you pointed out, fans such as yourself "gift" blogs with their personal images to share with the community. Those photos become "exclusive" and are considered a valuable commodity.

People give up all sorts of "vices" when they are hit with hard times. If CK are "begging for money again", it could be that some are walking b/c they feel the same as you do. Or they have rearranged their financial priorities and have given up vices like smoking, going out to dinner .... a membership to pictures of KR.:0) Or simply, their interest as waned.

I'm with Andromeda, running this site is expensive and time consuming and if people are willing to pay for it, because they like spending their downtime at CK it's their free will. As for controlling the comments, that's okay for me, too. It's chicks decision how she wants to run her site (it's not Keanu's site as you implied, KRFan8674), if you don't feel comfortable with it, leave and run to UG where harrashment and trolling are the norm (oh, i forgot they too beg for your money).

Besides, when you want to watch Keanu's movies in the theater that isn't for free either, because making them costs money as running CK does.

I think it's really dorky for an actor to run his own site. It's all pr and we already get nothing but pr from actors anyway. What could be more ridiculously boring?

A fan site has nothing to do with the star's reputation.

If I learned that Keanu had anything to do with the site, I'd be disappointed. But he doesn't.

However the internet is an open forum and anyone can say what they want.

There's a website called Crazy Days and Nights where commenters are very rough on everyone, including Keanu.

If you want to sound off, go there, not Club Keanu.

I thought of this too. Lots of people, including KR himself, is making money off of his fame. The more famous/popular KR is perceived to be, the more he gets paid. So in actuality, the private blogs make him "more" money without him or PR having to shell out a dime to keep him relevant to the fan base. It especially works well for him because he's always working on something and technology being what it is, makes reporting what he's doing "real time".

Note, too, the private blogs are grass root level. So information is passed quickly throughout the fan base via the WWW. Not just quickly, but inexpensively versus [them] spending bags of coin on poster distributions, commercials, coming soons, PR junkets, etc. in the hopes they'll "hit us". They still do some of that but I would think they're spending a lot less having to. The internet is a progressive way to market and requires a lot less effort and money esp. if you're A-list.

Does anyone have a "fan club" anymore? That's what fan clubs were for: To keep the grass root fan base informed. The www/private blogs rendered fan clubs obsolete.

That was a very interesting read. I always enjoy the lively comment section attached to anything I read on-line (esp. in the newspaper under an opinion piece.) It's interesting to look back at a snapshot like that and the discussion surrounding the issue, with the knowledge/satisfaction of how things unfolded -- and how wrong and full of sh!t the (mean-spirited) nay sayers turned out to be. i.e., KR didn't pay anyone off and he DID show up to court, and testify.

When I was in school I read The Popcorn Report. It is about forecasting for business and trending for market strategy. I found it interesting because it proved over time to be accurate. One quote I sort of remember is - "you don't need a rear view mirror when travelling at the speed of light. Interesting read.

Yeah, I read it, too Lizaird. It's based on demographic trends. i.e., you can predict the future based on what was popular in the past.

Boom, Bust and Echo is another great read.

While I think WINM has the best article archive ever, imo CK is the most updated fansite with a broader following and they have the best gallery thumbs up!!!

And I really don't undertand why people complain so much about donations, many fansites are run this way and it is not fair to expect all the hard work for free, donation is still optional anyway, but since Chicks said it is not fun for her anymore, I guess fandom may change over the years,it is only reasonable to charge the people who enjoys visiting her website

A as for her rules, I think she is doing a fine job keeping a clean place for the fans who doesn't like to hear the same old speculations again and again, if anybody is interested in conspiracy theories or gossip, there are plenty of places to hang-out, UGoSSIP is the perfect spot for that bunch, a complete chaos with lots of mentally-sick people...

And suggesting that Keanu should intervene CK or other fansites is the most absurd thing I've ever heard, Keanu is not paying for these sites, he has no say over how fansites are run, etc but imo both CK and WINM are doing great service to many fans and if anything Keanu should be grateful that he has such dedicated fans...

Listen, bibi, I believe that you write with your very best intentions, but remember where they bring us sometimes.. Nobody lies here about KR because nobody here knows him personally, nobody has exclusive patent on truth. My God, even about myself I can't be sure for whole 100%, so how could I announce anything so private about another? You are may be not yet in the age of doubts and mean to know yourself completely - well, feel your free to speak for yourself. You can be agree or disagree with ardith' or anyone else 'point of view, like or dislike her way of speaking, accept or don't her arguments - but don't forget, it's open and free forum, where anyone can come and talk about anything. There is such a beautiful Internet skill like "scrolling down " . Use it - you''ll feel your better ;)

Oh why oh why didn't you post this before *I* did a 'bibi'? Lol!

Bibi: assuming you're not one yourself, you should be aware that this forum uses 'agent provocateurs' in various guises to ..stimulate 'debate'? Deal with 'issues'? Provoke online 'breakdowns'? Who knows what the motives are.

If you are PR, you're wasting your time: the regular posters are adults who would only have issues if the topic was a pedo/rapist. Otherwise, its 'live and let live'.

If you're genuine, you should know that their are more interesting things about KR than who he's sleeping with/weight/hair extensions etc.

Like movies.

Bibi: we all know Ards is the one with a problem - ok? The issue is not whether a celebrity is gay/bi/straight: its his constant attempts to politicise *personal* relationships.

Celebrities are entitled to choose their politics the same as anyone else. That includes the *choice* to make the 'personal' political - or not.

Ok?

are we all okay with Ardith or you? I really don't care who you know nor do I care about Ardith's opinion of Keanu's sexuality. It's all for attention, can't we just talk about interesting stuff?

Just being honest, no hurt feelers I hope?
