Power corrupts idiots new  

Hi.

It really bothers me that some commoners here have the power to edit other people's posts. The only reason why these commoners come here these days is so that they can mock and humiliate the average poster and feel good about themselves. This has to stop. I ask for the resignation of the following mods:

Adam
Sysiyo
EJSunday

In the meantime I encourage all people who agree with me on this issue to stop posting until these mods have been removed.

Thank you.

My ass belongs on your face.

I'm minded to join you in your crusade, if for no other reason than I'm in a bad mood because I specifically asked for Midget Porn yesterday, and yet return today to find no such postage. So I was thinking of storming off for another few months in a huff.

However, I can't support any call for Sysiyo's removal. He's my favorite mod by far, and not just because of the cumshots. Mainly, but not just.

I'd also like to say in EJSunday's defense that he may at heart be a jackbooted Nazi who'd just love to push me into an oven, but he does at least seem to recognize he needs to tone it down a bit in this company. At one stage it looked like he might even be starting to grow a small but modest sense of humor, but that was a bit too much to expect.

And as for Adam, well, oy vey, that one's got issues.

Apparently Adam is one of those men who act like third graders with women who don't find him attractive. His issues with you and me are most likely triggered by the fact that we both rejected him in the past. Perhaps he thinks that his desperate attempts to demean me and you might change our opinion of him and we might start competing for his attention. We will never know what truly goes on in Adam's head and I personally don't care much. However, his recent tantrums prove him unfit for his position. Same goes for EJ.

As for Sysiyo, I guess he could stay provided that he posts more of his cumshots and stays away from the edit button. I know it's tempting, sysiyo, but it's not particularly sexy.

Don't worry, our special telepathic bond still holds. I did get it, but like you, I didn't think anybody else would, or could be expected to.

Nevertheless, I find it kyute that you felt the need to elaborate, and I appreciate it. It certainly beats the stonewalling Nazi, the ignoramus Aussie and the mad menopausal insult sprayer, so you're still my fave mod.

Since you elaborated on the joke, I'll elaborate on "but still".

Humor is great, but when you're in authority, needs to be used carefully. There's an enormous difference between when some clueless unsexy that nobody takes seriously like NomDePlume or power2harm uses a sexually charged epithet like "nymphomaniac", and when a sexy and respected moderator such as yourself does it to a much loved poster like Beltene. Unless of course she's in on the joke, which I suspect she isn't.

While I'm giving out useless advice for free, you might in future consider Monkeyboy's idea to politely PM a user asking her to resize or whatever before you just ram your fingers into her post. Again, assuming you didn't in this case, which maybe you did for all I know.

Two things.

Two. If your idea of good fun is to hope to inflict trauma on the targets of your lust, it comes as no surprise you haven't quite managed to hold down a girlfriend.

People don't like getting to know me. new [re: Beltene]  

As it happens, I was banned from my Dallas Mavericks messageboard this past weekend; it occurs that perhaps my story, besides bringing glee to the Smarter than p2c Club, will give its founding members some perspective. I will try to be brief.

In the last year or so I've enjoyed posting at the Mavs board more than I have posting here, mainly because I am enraged by the Bush Regime and there are people over on that board - Bush supporters - that make good figurative punching bags.

Unfortunately, one of the punching bags was the administrator, "techsan".

Techsan didn't like me much, and I thought his faux Will Rogers routine was underwhelming. A few months ago, he got to arguing with me about religion (can't remember why, except I'm ag'in it and he's for it). At one point, after he became somewhat bellicose, I said to tech, "Don't you consider that your son reads this board when you carry on so?" (it's sort of a Ohro/Scervix situation, though tech's son is 20 and a friendly progressive like yours truly).

For those who wanted a brief post, you may stop reading right here.

Well, tech was enraged that I brought his son into the pie throwing (which, truth be told, I knew he would be - I've got a knack for knowing what'll piss 'em off) and he deleted the entire thread in a fit of peevishness.

So, I called him on it, and he felt like a fool and apologized to everyone but me for deleting what had developed into a popular thread.

Then, about two weeks ago I had a go-round with him on the topic of illegal immigration. I won't get into details, but he told me I should listen to others when I don't know what I'm talking about, and I said, oh, okay, since more illegals live in New York City than in all of Texas, I'll just have to cede expert status to you, you imbecile.

This weekend, techsan started another religion thread. Seems he is in the market for a new church, one that isn't too heavy-handed doctrinally, where he can settle into pew and force other people to listen to his Keillorisms.

I wasn't going to post to that thread, since I couldn't give a sloppy shit where he ends up going to church, but I did read the thread on Saturday morning and noted that, out of the blue, he declared that he would delete any post that insulted anyone for their religious beliefs. So I posted, "I think you are an idiot, but I think that apart from your idiotic Christian beliefs," and I entitled my post "I dare you."

Tech deleted the post and inserted a comment in its place that he took up my dare. I then edited that out of my post and wrote that he was an idiot on a Christcrutch who only went to church because people there had to be sociable to him, and that the Kiwanis probably rejected his application.

Then I said I was going to dog his future posts, invoking thomaswood's famous signature that I would be in his face like a can of mace.

Then tech posted that he was getting tired of me and wanted to know from the other posters if he should ban me. He said he had a thick skin but he shouldn't have to let someone continually (and figuratively) urinate on him.

So I posted right back that, in reality, I was relatively mild-mannered, as posters go, and that Christ probably would let me urinate on him, so he should strive to be more like Christ.

Then I went for a walk into lovely downtown Marblehead, had a grande mocha at a famous coffee franchiser's outlet there and finished Rushdie's Midnight's Children (grand novel, btw - Stp2cC members should speed read it and write a sequel).

When I came home five hours later, I was banned. Even my ip address was banned, preventing me from viewing the boards until I downloaded ProxyWay to hide my addy.

))>><<((

The moral of my story is, I posted at my Mavs board the way I learned to post here, and it didn't pass muster with that thin-skinned, autocratic administrator.

We should be thankful for our lenient and generous mods at TW. I reflect upon the abuse I heaped upon K just because he wears his hair in pigtails. And yet he remains as placid as a fjord. I think I shall continue to abuse him.

I also remember the horrible things I said to EJ many months ago over some dogz-related brouhaha, and do you know how he responded? He PM'd me with an offer to split the Sudetenland with me "the next time." We are fast friends now.

And Adam? Well, he is simply a capital fellow. I've never been at odds with him, but if he wants to feel good about himself by mocking and humiliating me, I won't object. It'll probably turn me on.

Out of necessity, I'm back for while. Go Mavs!

EJ will have to send me a PM, too, before he gets back in my good graces. EJ, to obtain a "Getting Back In JarethsGirl's Good Graces" form, reach me through a private message and... well, that's it, basically. Filling out the form isn't exactly a crucial part of getting back in my good graces. It is merely processed and added to my dossier.

All you're really saying here is if you're an unattractive middle-aged poster prepared to ingratiate himself by licking some mod ass, you can get away with shit you can't get away with elsewhere.

This hardly contradicts my point that if you're an attractive young female poster who has politely declined the advances of one or more mods, it seems it's open season for them to throw some sexist or even sexual slurs your way. Mods should above all be impartial: they should treat all posters with equal courtesy regardless of gender, age, whether they've known them for years or they just breezed in, met up with them on their world tour or politely declined and so on and so on.

So you've been places where they treated you better. I counter that by pointing out that I've never been anywhere where I've been treated worse, and I don't act any differently in those other places I frequent.

The way to make this place better is not to lick mod ass and tell them they're better than some other fascist goons. If you had even a shred of integrity, the view you would have come to after your ban on the Mavs board is that it is important to support the right of newer less ingratiating posters to carve out a niche for themselves without the official censure of the mods here. But instead, you're just happy there's at least one place that your particular brand of ass-licking gives you the feeling you are part of the in crowd.

I disagree. I didn't mind that the admin over at that board didn't like me. I didn't like him and I let him know it, so his reciprocation was natural and expected.

If he had let me say what I wanted to the way that I wanted to, and my posts stayed within the broad parameters of acceptable communication (no threats, no extreme hate speech, no inline images of pornography), then I'd have judged him an asshole but a good mod.

There may be boards where admins are just sentinals and are expected to keep their personal opinions about other posters to themselves. That's not how things have ever been done here and it's not how things are done at many, if not most, messageboards.

For our reference, perhaps you can take and post a digital photograph of the stone tablet you found lodged up your skinny ass with the rules for mods chiseled upon it. Do you still keep it there? You post as if you do.

Or maybe after months of you jibing at me, I throw one back at you and it's a case of miss hard nose going off sulking. Now let's see - I've been told I'm short, fat, dumb, sexist, cannot hold down a girlfriend, susceptible to tantrums, have made rejected advances on you and Beltene and that I have a dull signataure and dull website.


You know as well as I do that I only started jibing at you after you made it abundantly clear that you disrespected me, and I only got as far as short, fat and dumb before you blew your top and decided to reveal your well hidden chauvinism.

Likewise, I chose to reveal my spurning of your advances only after you decided to get sexist, mainly to point out your hypocrisy.

I come here to amuse and edify myself. Mostly amuse, I must admit, because while there are a handful of finely tuned minds here who always write stuff worth reading, it is only a handful. But I can still amuse myself with the others, either thru jovial banter, or all out verbal sparring.

My code is this: I don't attack until attacked. I challenge anyone to find a single instance where I have gone on the offensive against someone who didn't go on the offensive against me first. But once they do, it frees me up to vent all my wit and bile on them, to my own immense amusement. I'm happy to go either way; it's really up to every poster here to choose whether they'd rather fuck or fight.

When I came here first, I made it clear who I considered as friends (people I either found interesting to read, or banter with) and who were the enemies that had crossed my line, and how it was possible to move from friend to enemy (by being dumb and insulting or dissing me in a dull way), or from enemy to friend (by raising your game and getting entertaining with the insults, as Emil and Marquis both did, for example). I even had the lists in my sig, which has been confirmed by those people with the best senses of humor here as one of the funniest jokes ever in TW history.

Now I admit that once someone does go offensive on me, I feel quite within my rights to escalate. Any body picking a fight with me needs to be aware of this: you might make a mild sexist slur and expect one back, but you'll get a much more hurtful one back. Because when I'm in a fight, I'm in it to win it.

So Adam, if you intend to go on treating me offhandedly and insulting me and communicating your lack of respect for me to others, you need to remember this. If you think this is as ugly as it could get, you ain't seen nothing yet. I have you down as someone who is pretty fragile mentally so I've pulled my punches a lot to date.

The only reason you don't get into more fights is not because, as you'd have us all believe, you're a nice guy, but because you're just so dull and lifeless when it comes to fighting. You're bad at it; really really bad at it.

In reply to:

you may as well keep it up


Oh, I will. I was about ready to give up on it because of your apparent Olympian reserve, until your facade slipped and you confirmed in the post now immortalized in my sig that I was getting to you. Now I've seen you squirm, and others have too, I'm looking forward to inducing more squirms, and going on pointing out your inadequacies to those here smart enough to see them.

Thing is, Adam, while you're nowhere near as big or as bad a rogue as your friend and fellow Aussie Diamond Dave is, you do have several of the same tendencies. In many respects, you're just a less successful version of Dave. If I can point that out here to your friends, they may not be quite so keen to welcome you with open arms and let you blodge off them on your next triumphant World Tour, just as the sterling work of Beltene, riley and others here have cramped Dave's style a bit for future excursions.

Or maybe I just don't think they merit consideration, anymore than you feel it necessary to read my posts.

The plain truth of the matter is, I don't know what you're on about because I don't read your posts with my memory turned on. In that regard, you're in the same class as Mr. Dogz and Mr. Picasso.

Further, the nature of private correspondence you send or receive is of even less interest to me than your other attention-seeking rants and ramblings. I already know you lie about PMs when it suits you. If Adam, whom I've read here for six years and in whose company I've spent a solid month, has sent you a private message in the past, that's his business and not mine, and I'm not concerned with your insinuations as to its existence or content. I simply ignore that malarkey. And again, I emphasize, you are not a trustworthy poster to begin with.

Play: Judge new [re: Monkeyboy]  

I think that was a dogz stab at humour.

Let's assess this argument: it seems interesting that Adam isn't really fighting for himself here, rather he's getting others to do his fighting. (Though having to_dizzy fight for him is about as useful as making a retard your goalkeeper). While Shelle seems fit enough to have made a lawyer, no one is either appealing against her claims nor bringing up adequate support based accusations against her. P2C, whose posts I always enjoy reading (sorry Shelle), and who normally has a persuasive way and bite in his argument seems to be tripping over himself here a little; however he has raised perhaps the most valuable point that he's actually spent a month with Adam in the flesh. What I'd be interested to know is whether or not Shelle has indeed met Adam in person, or if their only interaction has been online. This is where it gets tricky, cos you have to ravel the online persona from the real person.

I've enjoyed some banter with Shelle thru PM (including a case of hitting on her), and she seems pretty much as she is, straight down the line and non accepting of bullshit (unless it's laced elegantly in wit). I think she started posting around the same time I joined and watched with interest as she became one of the most popular TW posters since I've been here. I think what put some people's nose out of joint (especially in the upper realms of the TW heirachy) was that this very attractive woman, very successful woman could hold her own against them - her intelligence was attuned to theirs. Sure she might not have the Bowie knowledge that Adam or K or EJ has, but who does these days? She immediately took the stance to not be intimidated which I think probably made some people become intimidated by her.

I've got nothing to say on Adam. Seems like a decent bloke, his Bowie-related posts are normally nothing short of brilliant. That's all I know of him. However, I don't think there is any higher moral ground to take in this argument, and, even if he was guilty as so charged by Shelle, he didn't strike me to be one that would lie down easy. Maybe he thinks he has no case to answer for. I'd still like him to make this clear though.

Re: the original subject of the post. Mods should not delete posts, or attachments to posts. They should ask the original poster to either change or edit potentially offensive posts, or put a forewarning to some posts (for people looking at posts in a public place or whatever): This post contains material some people may find offensive - then it becomes up to the reader whether or not they proceed in viewing the post. If they do and are offended by it, tough shit, they were warned. It's like going to a Restricted movie and expecting not to see graphic sex, violence and colourful language. Perhaps this requires the mods to work a bit harder. So be it. Porn and extreme points of view are all apart of the TW experience. Or that's what I've discovered anyway; whether it's always been that way or not is besides the point. There is always something interesting going on here, and there is always interesting people posting here and generally there's always pretty interesting discussions, Bowie related or not. All other message boards I've been on are pale in comparison.

But again, I'm getting sidetracked, to mods deleting posts other then their own, Forgotten Boy says NO!

In reply to:

There are some rules/agreements everybody posting in this forum knows about. In case those rules are violated I have no problem with the moderators deleting them and - depending on whether it was just a mistake by the poster or just a willing attempt to break the rules - pm them afterwards or not. Moderating is not a democratic process, it is just something which is necessary to keep a board running.

In reply to:

They should ask the original poster to either change or edit potentially offensive posts or put a forewarning to some posts (for people looking at posts in a public place or whatever)


Oh great, and this warning will be useful for what exactly, when everybody at works already clicked the thread before the poster even read the message that he should put it behind a warning? In case no rules everybody knows in here are obviously violated that might be the correct way of clearifing the things. I don't see why nude pictures should be online until the poster decides to put them behind a cut. Also I don't know why someone should make a fuss about K being so kind of putting way too large pictures behind links in order to keep the thread readable. It is not like the content would have been changed.

In reply to:

Perhaps this requires the mods to work a bit harder. So be it.


Says someone who lets someone else do the work.

The mods already had more than enough patience and even tend to negotiate with the offending users in cases it would not be necessary. That is already much more than we can ask for.

Wrong. It pains Me to say this, because I used to pride Myself on being the best at this, but Shelle has managed to get under the skin of her targets like no other poster in TW history. You try your best to be provocative, but you really only manage to provoke naive newbies.

Shelle on the other hand has dragged the likes of power2charm, Adam, White Prism, Ohramona, EJSunday, Beltene, Strawman, Marquis, Froggy Starlust and even yourself into mudfights and made you look like blethering idiots. Some of those names are ones that nobody else has ever got even close to ruffling.

So, hats off to Shelle. She's the best thing to happen to TW in a very long time. She can provide more entertainment in a weekend than you can in a year. You're a lightweight by comparison.

Good summation. I'm heartened that some people are paying attention and are able to follow all this. Though I must say my experience is the genuine intelligentsia here had no problem recognizing me as one of their own right out of the gate. It's the pseuds and wannabes who got distracted by the blonde locks and the yah rilly's.

Anyway, some clarifications.

I've not met Adam in person, having declined the invitation to do so after some deliberation. My point is that all posters should be treated with equal respect and courtesy by those in charge here. It shouldn't depend on being willing to meet them in real life or spend an entire month licking their ass in person.

Now, let's also be clear that I have absolutely no problem with Adam hitting on me. You can't flirt as outrageously as I did when I got here first and then cry foul when you get hit on. No: I was flattered (though not as flattered as I was when you hit on me, FB).

My problem is the difference between how Adam treated me as a poster before I rejected his invitation (when he was friendly, helpful and respectful) and after. Now I'm accustomed to a certain coolness from guys I've rejected, and I'm happy to put up with. What I'm not happy to put up with is someone abusing a position of power in their disappointment.

I don't even have a problem with people disliking me. Like me, dislike me, up to you. But at least be fucken honest about it. When K disliked me, or thought he did, he said it straight out. That's much better than sly insinuations, little digs that nobody else would notice, and hearing from third parties that someone is whispering against you. Far from being upset when Adam went public about his distaste for me, I was thrilled I'd finally forced him out into the open, where I could at least respond directly. That's why the moment is now immortalized in my signature.

Re: Nice gavel new [re: Shelle]  

I won't claim to have followed this argument from its origins way back in the ether of TW time. Nor will I claim to be remotely interested in the semantics of it, a point upon which most TW arguments either founder or simply degenerate into. Furthermore, I'm not actually interested in Beltene's original argument; that seems to be based upon someone starting as many fires as possible, then coming crying to her mates when someone gives her a bollocking for it.

I think the interesting point of this argument is, as usual, the alleged need for impartiality on the part of moderators and administrators. Certainly, unless I'm guilty of a gross misinterpretation of her latest post, that appears to be the crux of Shelle's point: that being that those in an 'elevated role' ought to act with utter impartiality.

In my experience of TW, this has never been the case, and nor should it ever become so. There has been extremely occassional evidence of mods editing too willingly, and some posters began to feel targetted. The only reason for this, as far as I can see, is that as 'repeat offenders' it's their posts that are likely to get checked more often. Nobody - resident peroxide fatboy excluded - has the time or desire to read every single thread and post on this site, so if a mod's here on 'mod-duty' they're more likely to check out the posts of people who have been known to push the boundaries most often. Be they Beltene, Monkeyboy, Strawman - it does happen! - or whoever. Of course, some slip through the net, and that's when those who did get edited kick up a fuss, and all these sympathisers start crawling out of the panelling. I don't expect, though, that K edited Beltene's posts merely because they were Beltene's. They were screen stretching, and he was there to remedy it. Where's the problem?

But that's approaching Shelle's argument from a tangent. To meet it head on, as it were, I would suggest that as neither Adam, nor any mod to my knowledge, has edited any of your posts to change the content or point, then nobody has abused any powers.

Adam doesn't like you, you don't like Adam. So what? He's as eligible to hold grudges here as anybody else. So long as he doesn't go banning you - which, I suspect, he hasn't - or abusing his administrative powers, then what's the problem? That you two hate one another is what TW has been built on. The personal attacks, the snide comments, the all out arguments are exactly what's always happened here. But there's no point in trying to draw them out to make someone's administrative powers the point of the debate; frankly, people don't give a fuck about that.

In a far more convoluted manner than I originally intended, I'm saying let go of the 'Me vs. The Mods' mentality. It sort of undermines some of the fun of your arguments. And you're sure as hell not a dumb poster - surely you can see that?

If I've missed the point, then apologies. It wouldn't be the first time...

I disagree. That, and banning a poster on personal abuse, would be major abuses of power.

There are also minor ones. For example, starting a whispering campaign against a poster you don't like based on false allegations which are rendered more credible by the fact that it's someone in power who "should know" that's making them.

Another example: listing insults you claim were thrown at you by someone else, when you know full well (or should, based on the IP address which only you can see) that some of those insults came from a different poster.

In reply to:

then what's the problem?



None from my end. I agree with you. I'd respect Adam more if he came out here in the open and swapped barbs with me, rather than sulking off when it becomes clear I won't just surrender, and then send his personal friends who have "spent time" with him here to do his fighting for him, or hiding behind obvious alters (hello Charlie).

So if Adam wants to fight, I'm fine with that so long as he does it in the open rather than behind my back, and doesn't abuse the powers vested in him by Evan. I just hope he can lift his game a little from the one liner now immortalized in my sig which he even concedes is dull.

For that matter, his friends could do with lifting their game a bit too. For now all they've got is "your mother was right to abandon you", "meth-addicted skank", and "human STD". That last one wins my Best Of A Bad Lot Award, by the way.

C'mon guys: bring your A game please. Where's Marquis gone anyway? There was a guy who could generally hold his own against me in a fight, in my estimation at least, and come up with some original lines and insults that made me giggle.

Adam was respected long before he got the badge [re: Shelle]  

In reply to:

I'd respect Adam more if he came out here in the open and swapped barbs with me, rather than sulking off when it becomes clear I won't just surrender, and then send his personal friends who have "spent time" with him here to do his fighting for him, or hiding behind obvious alters (hello Charlie).


Maybe swapping barbs just isn't his idea of fun here at TW.

Adam's contribution to TW as a poster has been immense, leaving aside that he's just about the best administrator we could ever wish for. His knowledge of Bowie and music in general is huge, he's generous about sharing it, he's posted more great interpretations of Bowie songs than any other poster. He's also got a deep knowledge of and interesting opinions on a wide range of other subjects, like architecture, politics, general affairs, world affairs, and most importantly of all for me, cricket. He's human, and therefore prone to the occasional (very occasional, in his case) imperfection as we all are, but we shouldn't lose sight of the big picture here.

Remember, when posters say "TW is about X", they're really only talking for themselves, or at best, themselves and a few friends or like-minded souls. There are inevitably other posters who are not all that interested in X, but come here for Y and Z.

If Adam is like me, the idea of coming here daily to keep alive an on-going feud is not all that attractive. I sometimes find fun in having a mock fight with Strawman, safe in the knowledge that he's taking it no more seriously than I am, and he knows what the limits are (and even if he occasionally oversteps, he's big enough to back down or apologise). But Strawman excepted, I've never derived much pleasure from arguing with other posters, and the fun dies instantly the moment I feel they might be taking it more seriously than I am.

My point here is not that fights are wrong, or that they aren't or shouldn't be a vital part of the overall TW experience. Reading other people's online spats is a great guilty pleasure of mine, and nobody's are more entertaining than yours (I particularly enjoy the ass whuppings you routinely mete out to power2charm without breaking sweat). My point is that failure to get drawn into them should not be interpreted as a sign of weakness or frailty.

My other point is that if others come forward, in your view, to "defend" Adam, it is not necessarily at Adam's request. I'm posting this off my own bat without any prompting from him or any of his other many friends here. Anyone who knows Adam even a little bit knows he is a rare gentleman, and people often feel obliged to stick up for a gentleman.

Adam and you may not have clicked. You're very different posters, and people, but you both contribute a huge amount to the overall TW experience. There's really no reason why you both shouldn't be able to coexist here.

I'm still trying to figure out wtf this is about. Adam apparently said "Yeah whatever Shelle. Looky, looky, I'm a hard nosed businesswoman." and she was really offended by it.. [he's such a BADBOY.. get out your silverware..] and apparently Beltene was not aloud to show her snatch so was also deeply hurt as well. While she is quite a stunning woman.. I have to say that I have absolutely no interest in seeing her snatch on TW.. worst than that I have NO interest in seeing any TW member's member online [and probably offline].

Did Adam send you to ask if it's safe to come back new [re: power2charm]  

You've caught me in the middle of one of my charitable "Be Nice To Tards" periods, so I'll try to resist the easy temptation to just mock you in my usual witty manner and explain what actually happened. Since you just proved again you can't follow even the simplest thread.

So, all that happened is that Dara posted two compelling arguments. One, that there's no point fighting someone who refuses to fight. Two, that Adam's interpretations and what not are enjoyed by a segment of the TW populace and I should not jeopardize their enjoyment in pursuit of my own.

The fact that Dara did this with his characteristic gentle kindness makes it easier for me to swallow, but fact is if any of the other intellectual heavyweights here had come up with these arguments, I'd have accepted them too. Not that you need concern yourself with this, since you're incapable of following a coherent and compelling argument, much less come up with one without tripping all over yourself.

Now, to answer your query on behalf of your timid friend, you can tell him it's safe to come back. All I've done is move him from my To Do list to my To Don't one.

But should I ever feel he's being an ass again, either to me or anyone else, I reserve the right to go offense again.

And by the way, good idea on the laugh track. If there's anyone here whose output sorely needs a laugh track, it's you.

Adam asked me to ask you to fetch his slippers new [re: Shelle]  

Thanks for the tortured reply, Shelle. It's right up there with the long-and-winding post you wrote clarifying "but still".



In reply to:

So, [deep breath] all that happened is that Dara posted two compelling arguments. One, that there's no point fighting someone who refuses to fight. Two, that Adam's interpretations and what not are enjoyed by a segment of the TW populace and I should not jeopardize their enjoyment in pursuit of my own.


Actually, among the non-sequiturs, Dara stated his two points forthrightly - and they aren't anywhere near as far reaching as those you attributed to him:

"My point is that failure to get drawn into [arguments] should not be interpreted as a sign of weakness or frailty.

My other point is that if others come forward, in your view, to "defend" Adam, it is not necessarily at Adam's request."


I bolded the parts that should have tipped you off to his points.

What you've attributed to Dara are your conclusions about how he would like you to behave, and your compliance is as funny as it is predictable - good Shelle! But what do you suppose are Dara's motives for neutering you?

Okay - you accept that he didn't post at Adam's bidding. Did he feel Adam nonetheless required a defender, that your sappy accusations affected him in the slightest? No, nothing in his post suggests that he's worried about Adam's psyche. I guess it all boils down to thinking two of your premises were logically deficient. Why Dara condescends to you in particular is unclear, but one can reasonably conjecture he agrees you've made such a fool of yourself that it became prudent to nudge you off your monomania about Adam. In short, he was embarrassed for you.

Don't be upset, Shelletoid, you can still draw a valuable lesson from this thread: In the future, you will be sure to vet your enemies list against Dara's and get his approval before you commence your tantrums.

I only hope and pray that "Shelle" is the nastiest of alter egos. If she is real I am aghast. There could not be a more obnoxious person.

I hate the way Shelle constantly refers to her "fuck buddies," as if this makes her sexy and independent, a leader. Even the trashiest of girls, the dregs of society, don't talk or behave this way.

I hate the way she constantly refers to herself as the desire of every male at TW, and the only reason she gets no respect from them is because she has rejected their advances. She seems to be living in her own world, a world where a homely, heavily made up girl, is as attractive as a Kate Moss.

I hate the way she constantly reminds you that she is a witty, successful businesswoman, and if you forget, she will remind you about this again. Shelle is the faithless wife, the cheating girlfriend, that every man and woman despises.

I honestly feel that "Shelle" is the product of a male at TW who is not getting enough attention in his regular persona.
