S'cool dude. A man's gotta do, what a man's gotta do.
You've maintained an aura of chill, still are, by my standards.
(don't get too excited, my standards are quite low, actually)
But I digress.
You allowed a second chance, turned the other cheek as it were.
And got slapped again. It happens.
Just don't let it affect your otherwise kind and generous nature.
Other than writing, that's all ya got going for you. I JEST! Laughing
The dude abides...and so do you Chris, so do you.

Thanks FC

Speaking of The Dude, have you seen Men Who Stare at Goats? Not that great a movie, although it has some funny moments, and Bridges more or less reprises the Dude for a Dude Army. Totally not kidding.

I recall a thread where Lisa outed him as possibly being a previous poster. And now Tito has gone and bounced his posts, these two had quite a thread going down in the gutters where the politics are found. I hope it wasnt a case of sockpuppets gone awry.

To be honest my name isnt Jinxted
its Ted.

tossed that in because I joined and posted my first either days before or days after simba

Chris, this place is interesting without you (but certainly because of you) but to be honest your interaction with it is a highlight, and one that would certainly be missed.

yeah thats me sucking up to the AG.

Well, to be honest, Ted, I saw a few of the early posts of Simba, and the smarmy tone, and I thought it was Palmer, who menaced this board lo these many years ago.

But I haven't been around much, as I've been working on the new book, so I'd just check in, make sure that Lisa was still batshit and GeG still yearned for her days eating out of a dumpster, then I'd figure all was well and go back to what I was doing.

But then, this afternoon, I started getting that feeling, that feeling of, "Oh fuck these people, I hate them all" a feeling that I only got when Palmer was around. So I checked some stuff that had been checkable all along, and sho 'nuff, it was him, pulling his passive aggressive bullshit with a stealthier tone. (So I missed the Tito/Simba exchange.)

My most optimistic hope, is that he only manifests his personality disorder in on-line forums, and that he's not fucking with people's real lives, but that he teaches high school makes me worry for his students.

Again, I apologize for not stepping on his neck immediately. Turns out he asked me if he could come back to the BBS the day before he signed on as Simba. I said no, of course. I'm not sure why he bothered to ask.He took the same role as he'd always had, as a narcissistic troll, constructing in his "Simba" character attributes of reasonableness and open-mindedness that he clearly didn't possess, as if he was going to convince himself by convincing us. Dude is deeply creepy.

Someone else like that shows up, you guys need to send me an e-mail.

Palmer, you're fucking creepy! Seek counsiling. Really, it's you. It's not everyone else, it's you.

None needed, at least on my part. You've usually got such a light hand that it's easy to forget we're your guests.

I suggest dropping a line to Ken detailing the "stuff that had been checkable all along." Assuming it's more than just tone, he might be able to block stuff at an automated level. After several times being pitched out on his ear, I'd be completely unsurprised to see him try again.

Yes, I've seen that movie.
The Phasing through walls still isn't working for me....
Probably doesn't help that I'm trying it sans coke and hot tub. Wink

Agreed- no need to stop being a decent human being just because some folks are pathological...

I think most of us more or less recognized the flavor (though had no way to prove it)
& can at least be relieved there ain't 2 of him-
though the Tito thing's a little bit weirder...

I don't want to block all of Canada, Steve. We blocked every ISP he'd ever signed in on. Every e-mail address. The guy's a sociopath. Any more securty to block one person would be more effort that I want to give him, and would curtail the movement of the rest of you more than I'm willing to.

you know i was actually thinking of asking someone about this kinda thing. but i just blamed it on being a terrible judge in character, and that i was all fucked up on those stupid diet pills at the time. ( addiction makes a wonderful scapegoat for these judgment lapses.... and actually less embarrassing than say a "pre-existing borderline personality disorder, or manic "episode".... know what i'm saying? actually, neither do i, so back to you're regularly scheduled whining)

but after the ann coulter debacle i was actually someone nice to him, against my instincts, which are that anyone that finds that ridiculous woman (and by woman i of course mean, "demented waste of space" ) to be anything but...well...ridiculous, probably isn't going to bring any positive contributions to my beloved message board!

this actually happened with that awful cancer asshole guy, as well. and i apologize if i somehow encouraged either of these dickheads, whoever they are, were or will ever be, to linger any longer than they would have.....

hopefully i don't actually have that much influence.

but anyway after i was kinda "nice" to him in this thread

http://bbs.chrismoore.com/viewtopic.php?t=19922&postdays=0&postorder=asc&start=15

and then he sent me a p.m. that kinda gave me the creeps, but i showed it to another fruitbat who said it was no big deal, but after a few more , i got freaked again and showed it to another person who agreed, that although, fairly innocuous on the surface, the personal messages, definitely set of her "warning alarms" and at that point i told him that i am uncomfortable with most male attention , even lighthearted flirting... so of course he assured me that his interest in me was entirely paternal. Rolling Eyes Rolling Eyes Rolling Eyes Rolling Eyes Rolling Eyes and that the reason he felt comfortable flirting with bleu was that she is much closer to his age (60) than i am!!!! Shocked Shocked Shocked Shocked

of course, in truth i'm pretty certain that she is right around the same age. (29 and holding Wink Razz ) as i am!!!

in a way this "incident" reminded me of one of the reasons that i am so comfortable here. which is how refreshingly free of ...well... unsolicited "ickyness", and how 99.9 people respect each others personal space and whatnot. and any lighthearted flirtatious joking around, no matter how raunchy, is really nothing to worry about.

but unfortunately it also brought to mind , the one other "incident" of this kind, that was actually far more blatant, but since it happened to another female fruitbat, i won't going into specifics. except to say that she handled the crude language and inappropriate attention with far more panache than i would.


obviously i wish that instead of just bitching about simba on facebook with my boardello home-girls that i had mentioned it to someone "in charge" or just told him to go to hell in a less passive aggressive way.

sorry about that chris. and everyone else that had to deal with his negative energy. and i'm really sorry that anything discouraged you from checking in. in general i try to refrain from sucking up, but i want you and everybody else here to know that getting to kick it with you and your friends on a regular basis is something i look forward to and really appreciate! (hey i did say "try")

p.s. since i have to get up in four hours and have been awake for about 20 , i'm gonna to forgo checking this long ass run on sentence of a post for readability, and just hope that you guys understand what i'm saying....

okey dokey , i should probably go to bed , before i start babbling, right??

Sir. As much an honour as it is coming from a writer of your caliber I must decline to accept the praise on the grounds of modesty.

The Goddess Saraswati who lives at the tip of your finger tips be praised. Smile
