And it's getting to be really boring. I don't like to be the agent of anyone's misfortune. So I don't narc behind the scenes, -- or for that matter, in full view -- when it comes to naming names and taking prisoners. And I'd prefer to keep it that way to the greatest extent possible. However, you're the ones who set the limits there, really, not me. I mean by your "bad" actions. In case that's not clear. Some of which are also bad. For example, ganging up on vulnerable people and picking on them. Not cool. Although not as uncool as making a picture of Sid and Nancy your avatar. Because that one's really pretty hard to top.
But you know. I'm talking about shit that's fractionally more serious that that. And this is what I have to say:
I've had it with you all. As far as I can see, you do not have a valid cause. Apart from which, on an on-again-off-again basis, your pretensions are profoundly offensive to me personally. Because, hello? I'm a politically serious intellectual who finds something close to godliness in transgressive art.
So to the pathetic extent that you're pretending to be and/or actually believe that you are intellectuals, politically serious people, and/or transgressive artists, you're pissing on stuff that's very valuable to me. I feel kind of like Apu in that Simpsons episode where Homer passes a statue of Ganesh on his way out of the Kwik-E-Mart after buying snacks, and gives it what he believes is an apppropriate elephant treat. I don't feel like looking it up, but the Apu line, IIRC, is:
"Please do not feed peanuts to my Gods."
Anyway. You've been busted for a long fucking time. And I've gotta say: I dislike the January 2010 program even more than I've disliked the average, everyday monotony. So I'm going to start posting spoilers. With the hope that it may preempt some of teh dull.
FWIW: I'll try to protect the guilty and the innocent to the best of my ability. Because I believe in amnesty. And to be completely candid, also because although it doesn't happen often, I suppose that I could be totally mistaken. However, I really, really don't think that I am in this case, at least on the gist and the main players. I almost certainly do have some details wrong, I fully pre-concede.
Because to be honest, I tend to lose interest in that shit once I can see that it is what it pettily is. I mean, it's not like I'm getting paid to map out every fucking non-subtlety in Thee Circle Jerk of Doom.
So there you have it. I feel for you all and wish you the best. I honestly do. But you really shouldn't do "covert" if you don't know how. Because it really can be dangerous. And if you'd had controllers to whom you were assets worth protecting, they would have told you that a long time ago. Plus, just in case you're laboring under illusions on the issue: There's no such thing as a controller who cares about you. In the real covert world or in the real world, period. Caring people do not go into the controlling business.
Frankly, although I don't really expect you to appreciate it, you're very lucky you're getting called on your bullshit by me. Because at least I'll be gentle with you. Relatively speaking. Anyway. Fasten your seatbelts. It's going to be a boring and predictable thread.
The short version of the boredom yet-to-come is:
You could say that there is an ARG. If you consider a small group of egotistical assholes having gone to a lot of trouble to establish multiple false identities with which to take over the RI forum starting (I believe, but sorry, got bored, zzzzzz) way back in the EZ-Board era (if not before, zzzzz) to be an ARG.
Also, there's a whole lot of extraneous shit that people who aren't in on it are supposed to think is happening. Like, you know: When they put your hands in the bowl of peeled grapes while you're blindfolded, you're supposed to think they're eyeballs. And I believe that stuff is supposed to be fascinating, though I may not be the best judge of it, from a certain point of view. I also assume that it's supposed to be difficult to detect. Which some of it may be, for all I know. But if it was, I didn't detect it. I just can't help seeing the big, blunt stupid part that's hanging out in plain view begging for attention, but doing it wrong.
Here's one last try, for old time's sake:
You're just trolls, for christ's sake. And some of you have real skillz, either as bloggers, or reporters, or writers. To whom I'd like to say: You guys. I have no idea why you're not good enough for yourselves just the way you are. But fwiw, you are good enough for me. In fact, every day, I say a little prayer for you to find the peace of mind to be yourselves, happily, without tripping yourselves up by stumbling around loudly knocking into things while you're trying to tiptoe around engaging in unnecessarily complicated and overcompensatory hijinks in areas that you suck at.
So if you feel like trying that, I guarantee you won't regret it.
I'm now going to give mods and admin and you ass-clowns a short period of time to take me out if you can, or to respond with some other kind of diversionary tactic -- and please, please make it a fresh and new one, if you've got any, please -- or to move this thread to the data dump or whatever.
Because I'd rather get beat playing fair than win by ambush. So carry on, my wayward sons. There'll be exactly as much peace when you are gone as there would have been if you'd never opened the fucking door to begin with. Just as there will be if you never actually leave.
And the reason for that is: You just don't have that kind of power. I'm sorry to have to tell you that. And you can believe me or not on the sorriness part, it makes no difference to me. I know that I am. If you don't want to share that knowledge, suit your fucking selves. But you definitely should know that it takes much, much more work than you seem to realize in order to get anywhere or achieve anything. Including power. Though I have absolutely no idea why you'd want it, frankly. Or what you'd want to do with it if you had any, apart from play pranks on the internet. However, if you do, and assuming that you're not in it entirely and solely for the lulz but do actually want something in the way of an achievement or goal, you really can't start learning that lesson too fucking soon, believe me.
In any event. Comments, anyone? Questions?
I'll be back in a little while, either way.
