Freedom of Speech. (kept)  

Freedom of speech cannot continue if a thread is locked.

Re: "Poetry and Purpose".

Sysiyo said: “No, most people have just grown tired of mocking you, since you're not even worth mocking”, and: “You should learn to use the quote function my dear, I haven't got a clue to what you're really replying to with this line”.

The Poet replied: “How could you possibly ascertain that, given you're only one of those people?”, and adds: “Now, you’re just being lazy. The first sentence of my reply surprisingly corresponds with the first sentence of the post I was replying to, ducky”.

The Poet said: “Critique incorporates both positive and negative criticism”, to which Sysiyo replied: “I never claimed the opposite. I simply presumed that an arist in such high position as youself, would understand this without saying”. However, The Poet now refers Sysiyo to his/her previous statement: “Also, you are telling us you did not post your poems here to get critique on them. Thus we can only conclude you posted them because you wanted us to read them, and congratulate you on what a brilliant poet you are, giving satisfaction to your vain ego”.

The Poet said: “The statement you quoted was initially posted in response to a different question altogether, and inherent meaning neither applies to, nor contradicts, the current subject of discussion”, to which Sysiyo replied: “That is bullshit and you know it yourself”. Well, the statement to which The Poet refers was: “A true artist is always striving to equal his/her last piece; not surpass it” in response to a discussion concerning whether artists strive to either equal or better their most recent projects, and not the discussion on whether an artist is continually acquiring artistic ability through experience whilst ageing. Although relating to a similar theme, The Poet’s response to the former discussion cannot, directly, be applied as The Poet’s perspective to the latter discussion, as relevance is lost in such an exchange.


This thread is kept on Dukewhite's request because of the entertainment value, and the occasional serious discussion about the nature of art.

Re: Freedom of Speech. new [re: Sysiyo]  

That's just a plain insult. I thought a moderator was supposed to discourage such abuse. True, you can read the thread, yet I've been prohibited from replying to such criticisms as the following, within that thread:

DukeWhite said: "revolutionary schmevolutionary. You keep saying this word but there's not much of a revolution in your work. Nor is bumping a post revolutionary. Nor staying in contact with your readers. I cna understand your desire to do whatever "revolutionary" thing you want, but stop fucking posting about how revolutionary you are. If we think you're revolutionary, we'll let you know. If not, go somewhere where people do. Maybe someone somewhere else will recognize your genius and spread the revolution to even larger masses of interested people".

I neither deemed my poetry, nor staying in touch with those who read it, nor bumping a thread to be: "revolutionary". The latter is your strongest of three weak, ill-informed, arguments, given my aside: "Revolutions break rules", to highlight bumping a thread as a trivial matter.

Re: Freedom of Speech. new [re: anotherpoet]  

My dear Poet, (what, are you the only poet in the world, that you call yourself the pretentious, capitalized title of "The Poet"?) this is a messageboard made for entertainment. We monitor and seek to promote quality in our posting; we have no obligation to allow full freedom of speech.

When the speech in question is offensive, boorish, goes against the rules, or mis-uses the forum amenities, our moderators have full right to shut it down. They can also ban users and delete posts, you know.

Edit: Okay, so I'm wasting my time here 'cause I'm procrastinating, but really, we should just ignore all anotherpoet's threads and let them sink down and be deleted.


Maybe if I write this now, while drunk, you'll all understand.

Take your revolution elsewhere.

On second thought, don't. You amuse me far too much in your inherent stupidity.

Besides, you have given us repeated proof by your behaviour that you do not care for criticism, positive or negative. You think youself so perfect that nothing we could say to you changes your opinion on Your High Self, Your Fantastic Poetry or Your Exceedingly Revolutionary Revolution.

But that would mean losing all the fun!

Re: Freedom of Speech. new [re: Starlite]  

It's your assumption I've chosen to emphasise the definite article in my username; not my intention. I've not been capitalising my pseudonym either.

Denial of freedom of speech equates to a primary aspect of fascism, so, in effect, you're stating the forum is fascist. I've bumped a thread once, without an awareness of the anti-bumping rule. That's a pretty trivial mis-use of forum amenities, given I've not repeated it since.

There's nothing offensive about my posts on this forum whatsoever. Yours veer towards being offensive much more than mine.

Re: Freedom of Speech. new [re: Sysiyo]  

Very well. I'll keep popping back here. These recent base insults of yours conflict with the fact I've defeated every anti-Poet argument you've put forward thus far, without resorting to similar base insults, I might add.

It was not your bumping of the thread only, it was your behavior afterwards, how you were so cool and such a rebel for breaking our rules. As you showed no sign of following the rules, in fact quite the opposite, I decided, as the fascist dictator of this forum, to lock your thread to give you an example in the art of obeying rules, as stupid as they might seem to you.

As for your 'defeating' each of my arguments... you've twisted my words, in good stalinist traditions you've re-written history and clouded truth with obscure sentence-structures and bizarre claims, in order to make it seem like you're the ever-wise and your world the Unchallengable. Your very being radiates twisted selfishness, a sick certainty of your own rightness. This has clouded your perception so badly that you do not even know yourself you're lying.

I insult you only because I derive the greatest pleasure from it. Like a cat, I play with my mouse before going for the kill.

Hahaha...I've never heard such melodramatic tripe*. Don't flatter yourself**. The best bit is: "...you do not even know yourself you're lying...".

*Anticipates retort deriding my poetry.
**Anticipates: "I'll do as I please" response, and reluctance to acknowledge a colloquialism.
