Night's Angel

Tons of them try to hit on me since I write in first person and most of the main characters are me at some time in my life.  In some of my stories two of the characters are me at different points in my life.  But since I'm in my 50's that gives me lots of times to chose from.

Actually Nights Angel I don't find you far gone with what you are saying at all.  I couldn't have said it better myself.  None of my stories ever go the way I originally planned them, the characters soon hijack them and take them where they want them to go.  I'm just the scribe to chronicle their lives.

Welcome to FurRag.  Don't be so nervous about expressing yourself.  That is what is so great about having a pen name, you can say anything or write anything you want without being self-conscious.  I hope you have as much fun writing as I do.  My only regret is that I waited until I was 49 years old to start.

That's about as childish as Red Pen Wielders, but exactly what I should expect.  LOL

This is in response to Jacky

I knew taking a poke at Supreme Emperor and Grand Poobah of all things literary Altivo would bring you out from under your rock to take a poke at me.  I knew you wouldn't be able to resist coming out and taking more abuse from me.

And I can understand how easy it is for you to jump on his story, since I'm sure your time and opinion are not in high demand.  I have 6 readers on SoFurry who have asked me to take a peek at their stories and give them my opinion of them.  I think if I have time to read stories I have more of a responsibility to read the stories of people who actually read mine and request my opinion before I read stories from random writers that post a general link to their story  They've read my stories, I owe them first.  When I get caught up I will try to give Sasya's story a read.

It also doesn't seem like you are very active in the writing department (unless you are posting somewhere else) so I'm sure you have TONS of time on your hands.  Do you even have a job or do you live in mommy's basement?  Do you have mommy's permission to use the computer?

This is in response to Erkhyan

Very surprising, I would expect someone with a science background to have better logic and analytical skills.

Actually I just pointed out that even though you apparently disagreed with Supreme Emperor and Grand Poobah of all things literary Altivo, I had to twist your arm several times to admit you actually disagreed with his view. I didn't ask you to attack him, I was doing a good enough job of that.  LOL You can disagree with him without getting in a fight, or at least you should be able to.  If you are so sensitive that you feel that is calling you a toady then maybe you have a guilty conscience.

Actually where things got ugly was your Reply #32 on: May 22, 2013, 10:40:38 AM. Up until then I had been rather neutral with you, my main beef was with the Emperor and then with Jacky. It was you that decided to pick the fight. And being a former Marine I don't back down from fights.

And no I didn't think the RPW's had a a super-secret agenda out to get me. Get a life. I just think they are a bunch of pretentious pseudo-intellectual snobs all wrapped up in their own overinflated view of their self-importance. I never was under the impression that I was anywhere near important enough to even be on your (meaning the RPW) radar. And that was my whole point about you RPWs (you in the group sense, maybe not you in the singular sense since you say you didn't write any reviews), they felt it was their right and duty to go out and abuse people any way they saw fit. They were above others and writers feelings were theirs to trample on, because they were MUCH smarter than the rest of us since they were a Red Pen Wielder. Where you ever got this other idea is completely beyond me. My problem with the RPWs was their sense of entitlement generated by a stupid sophomoric title. Even the Emperor with all his vast shortcomings admitted that the name was not a wise choice claiming he advised against it. The name gives us an insight into the mindset of the members of that group, they were the teachers with the red pens and us Newbies should have to listen attentively while they dressed us down.

All that said, you demonstrated that you guys all stick together against outsiders and present a united front even when you disagree with each other. A perfect example was your refusal to publicly disagree with Altivo even though you philosophically disagreed with him.
 

As far as you saying:  "Thirdly, Sasya might not be a regular yet because the slump in activity meant that there wasn’t much interaction between all of us, but… at least two years of presence in the forums, no trolling wars started, and a posting a story that garnered mostly positive feedback? I don’t think any of us has considered Sasya as a newcomer for a long while."

That speaks VOLUMES about this site that it has so little traffic that in two years someone who is supposedly active in the forums is still a Newbie. You guys should be thankful that I'm here now, this is the first time this forum has had a pulse in years.

I'd been here 3 years without starting any "trolling wars". I hadn't spent much time on the forums because they have basically been flat-lining since I have been a member.  My guess is that no one comes on here because opposing views are frowned upon.  Oh and I was told by Reiter to go to the forums where I would find such friendly helpful people, I should have figured that I would find people like him here.

Also if Sasya's story postings first review had been by a RPW that rudely said "you and your story suck" he might not still be here. 

And no I haven't spent much time before this on these forums, I have been too busy in the comments sections of my stories on SoFurry. My guess is that in the last two years there, the comment sections from my stories have generated more post than this whole forum combined and multiplied by a factor of ten. And there has been no as you say "trolling wars" on them, but then over on SoFurry I'm dealing with friendly regular people not a bunch of pretentious pseudo-intellectual snobs.  They are just a bunch of regular furs that like a good story.  I guess it's like the movies that draw big at the box office but get panned by the critics.  Those movie directors laugh all the way to the bank.


And in regard to your last paragraph:
And lastly, don’t get ego boosts. I’m not wishing harm on you, I’m only pointing at the hilarious fact that you complain about abuses of authority, call us overlords and such, and yet have been able to do so without any negative consequences other than a vocal debate. Such a poor dictatorship we make!

Again this just points out that you have absolutely no sense of humor. My referring to you as Overlords is sarcasm, which obviously went WAY over your head. The only one who I said abused his authority was the Emperor and even that I said was in an indirect way and of course Reiter, but you are too obtuse to understand that even after I tried to spell it out to you repeatedly.  I really think you should go in on the Genre section and remove the Humor option since no one here will understand any stories that contain humor.  Plus it isn't surprising that you RPWs and Administrators are as inept at being evil overlords as you are at everything else. *Where's the ROTFLMAO emoticon when you really need it...*

You better be careful Sasya, you're really gonna piss off the Supreme Emperor and Grand Poobah of all things literary, Altivo.  LMFAO  Grin  If I get some time I'LL try to give it a read, but I've got two chapters of different novels to finish so my fans on SoFurry don't get restless.

Again you guys keep ascribing actions and motives to me that I have never claimed.  You claim that I am attempting “to prove that (I'm) not the troll”.  I am attempting no such thing.  My point is to punch holes in all the faulty arguments and lapses in logic that you Red Pen Wielders, oops make that FORMER Red Pen Wielders (Pats self on back) keep throwing out there.  Maybe the problem is you are all English majors and I'm a Scientist.  They don't teach logic and analytical thinking to English majors, although in your case I guess I should say Language majors, so maybe I should be less hard on your ignorance.

you have decided to write in the most eye-hurting color available? I originally chose this color because my post to Jacky was getting too complicated.  It was then that I decided that I should post what he wrote in red because he's a RPW and since I have a poison pen I thought I would post in a nice poisonous green.  It was clearly spelled out in that post.  It is just to avoid confusion.

Insult the regulars? Of course I have insulted the regulars here, usually in response to them insulting me.  I can't help it if I am MUCH more talented in the insult department...

Scare away the newcomers? I must beg to differ on that one.  Go back and read my original response to Gallowglass.  There is nothing that I said on it that was different from what he already knew and what Jacky followed up with.  Jacky (one of the evil overlords;- ) insisted on taking a poke at me there and I defended myself.  Also Sasya is a newbie and I have not insulted him when we have interacted.

And lastly, declare war on a group based on a member who left years ago? I still don't know where you have come up with this one.  Yes I had trouble with a RPW, one of the more smug self-important ones of the group and I pretty much let that die after he hijacked my e-mail account. (although to this day Jacky will claim he didn't.  Hmm... Maybe Jacky knows that Reiter didn't do it because Jacky's the one that did it.  LOL)  It was when I found similar actions and attitudes among other RPW and Administrators that my dislike developed for them.  And really there have only been three others that I have had negative interactions with, you, Jacky and of course the Supreme Emperor and Grand Poobah of all things literary, Altivo, so maybe I shouldn't judge the whole group based on 4 individuals.  I mean there are bad apples in every barrel.  It just seems like you 3 are the only ones still active on the site and I can understand why.

And in the last paragraph the truth comes out, you wish you could kill me for voicing my opinion.  Just like every despot and dictator out there tries to bury the truth and those who speak it.  But that is nothing less than I expect from a former RPW.  ROTFLMFAO

*Holds up Most Obnoxious Trophy.  Does Victory Dance.*

I always try to be the very best at what I do, so being "by far the most obnoxious person who has ever been here" is quite the accomplishment considering how many obnoxious people have been here.

Au contraire mon ami.  I've heard everything the three of you have had to say.  I just find it to be highly inaccurate and I have to continue to point out your lapses in logic.  Even to the point of having to point out that you haven't “been remaining quiet hoping you'd get bored and go away.”  You keep coming back to stir the pot just when things are quieting down.  Are you sure you're not the Troll?
11  Discuss / Reader's Lounge / Re: Authors Deserving Attention on: June 01, 2013, 06:33:27 PM
I KNEW IT!  I could sense the heavy hand of the Supreme Emperor and Grand Poobah of all things literary.  I didn't think Jacky would have stopped without being called off by his Overlord...  ROTFLMFAO

A Troll?  Heavens NO!  I'm much too clever to be a troll, trolls are stupid and slow witted.  At least in all the stories I've read about them they are.  But I've never met one in real life so maybe I'm rushing to judgment.  But that too would help me fit in on this site.  

Hmmm...  A gadfly...  I'll have to think about that...  Maybe something similar but sent by Calliope instead of Hera to herd this site back into line.  See I even know classical mythology so I can act pretentious too!  Does that mean I can be a Red Pen Wielder?  Oh I forgot, I eradicated the Red Pen Wielders.  LOL (Raises arms in Victory again!  Man I haven't raised my arms in victory so often since back when I was kicking ass in Track and Cross Country back in college.)

I have admitted no such thing.  I thought with you being such an accomplished writer and a librarian to boot you would have much better comprehension skills than Jacky.  Maybe it's just senility settling in on you so I'll give you the benefit of the doubt.  I'll try to explain it to you s  l  o  o  o  l  y so MAYBE you'll be able to understand (but I'm not counting on it).


Jacky
“That's the sole reason you're here though LOL”


Poisonpen (That would be me, just wanted to make sure you are still following this)
“My 23 story posts on this site prove that you again have your head planted firmly up your ass.  But I would expect nothing less from one of the former Red Pen Wielders.  I still post stories on this site on a semi-regular basis (not as often as I post to SoFurry, but I like to spend more time in the major leagues than down here in the bush leagues) so that is my main reason for still being here.  My guess is that I've actually posted more stuff here than you and Erkhyan combined, so maybe you should ask yourself if the sole reason you're here is to attack me.  LOL

But I will admit that part of the fun of being here is to bust the balls of the pretentious pseudo-intellectual snobs that crawl out from under their rocks when I come on the forums...  Which again has nothing to do with Reiter and his review.  At this point it has a lot more to do with you and your ilk.”


If you parse my statement, I claim my MAIN reason for being on this site is “my 23 story posts on this site”.  I stated that very clearly so your statement “You have now fully admitted that your only reason for being here was to stir up trouble and irritate people” is a blatant misrepresentation of the facts.  (Damn I gotta be careful I'm starting to sound like a lawyer.)  

I then go on to add a secondary reason (secondary means it is of lower importance than the MAIN reason.  Am I going slow enough for you?) of  “But I will admit that part of the fun of being here is to bust the balls of the pretentious pseudo-intellectual snobs that crawl out from under their rocks when I come on the forums...”  

Now you may believe that the secondary reason is the primary one (you would be wrong, but you're used to that by now) but your statement was that I “have now fully admitted that (my) only reason for being here was to stir up trouble and irritate people.”  And I most certainly have NOT admitted any such thing.  Your claim is FACTUALLY WRONG! I think even someone as obtuse as an Administrator can see that.

And while I DO enjoy busting “the balls of the pretentious pseudo-intellectual snobs that crawl out from under their rocks” I don't enjoy it anywhere near as much as I enjoy discussing stories (mine and the stories of others that I have read) in the comment sections of SoFurry.  But it seems that this site has nothing even remotely resembling it, so I have to settle for ball busting.  But I guess you have to settle for that when you're in the bush leagues.

Once again Poison>Red Ink

I don't see why you're worrying about sullying the forums, there's no one here to see it.  Which raises the philosophical question, if a fox sullies the forums and there is no one there to read it, does anybody really give a damn...

This is beginning to get complicated so we have to color code
My original statement
Your response (in red in honor of the Red Pen Wielders
My reply in a nice poisonous green



Actually you have defended him and continue to in this post.  You are doing it when you state "You're still mad at him but you can't get at him (because he's probably ignoring you)".

How is that me defending him? What kind of logic exists on your planet? I actually really dislike the guy. Believe me, I wouldn't defend him. But telling you that is like banging my head on a brick wall. No matter what evidence I give you, you always come back and assert you're right, so it's kind of pointless.

Obviously we live on very different planets, or at least alternate realities.

If you do now actually dislike your former Butt Buddy (although with your responses I truly doubt it) then we have exactly one thing in common.  You have given me no evidence other than insisting you don't defend him.  Yet you keep defending him by insisting that he would take the high road and ignore me.  That IS defending him by any definition of the word. Well I turned the tables on him and REALLY pissed him off.  He likes to show people up but the vindictive little bastard really hates being exposed for the no talent blowhard that he really is.  It was a really interesting pissing match until he resorted to hacking my account. But that's the other way you defend him, over and over and over and over...

Maybe if you keep banging your head against that brick wall it will knock some sense into it.  I doubt it though, I think your head is more solid than any brick wall.  It would probably help if you take your glasses off first, just a little advice since you don't seem terribly bright.  Although maybe on your planet the laws of physics don't apply like they do in our world. Are you sure you don't live in the land of Loony Tunes?



Actually I'm the one that is ignoring him, I stopped contacting him when he hijacked my account.  We went back and forth trading insults until then.  He sure as hell didn't ignore me.  I even posted part of one of his e-mails on one of the posts on this forum.  He actually had the last word.  I usually don't let anyone have the last word, but when he fucked with my e-mail account that I use for SoFurry (and also Furrag but that didn't weigh much on my mind) I decided it just wasn't worth it.

Yeah I still don't believe you about this hijacking stuff, but if you have proof I'll gladly admit you're right. And by proof I mean you could show it to Judge Judy - accepting that she wouldn't look at trivial crap like this - and she'd agree that it was him.

All the proof I need is that he told me he had a surprise for me and when I tried to open my SoFurry/FurRag e-mail account it wouldn't open.  I had to collect all kinds of e-mails from my friends and fans to demonstrate that it was actually my account.  It took over a week.  As far as proving it to Judge Judy, I don't know who that is so I have no idea if it lives up to her standards.  Is she god or something that we need to meet her standards?  I don't have any hacker type friends that I could get to go in and get "evidence" on who hacked my account.  If I would have known that I needed proof to convince you that it happened, I'm sure I would have hired someone no matter what the cost to get enough evidence for your satisfaction.  NOT  

Obviously you feel that he is such a paragon of virtue that he would never stoop to such a heinous thing.  That IS defending him.  I personally think the little parasite would sink to anything he can get away with, and I'm beginning to feel the same about you.
   


Yes you even told me "the review he wrote was bad", but then you went and told Gallowsglass that it was just a review that didn't kiss my ass.  Those are two VERY different things.


Nope. Pretty compatible ideas actually.

I guess that demonstrates your lack of mastery of the English language. Just curious is English a second language to you, if so that would explain your total lack of comprehension.   A review that didn't kiss my ass would suggest a review that didn't go out of it's way to flatter me, in other words it implies a neutral review, not positive nor negative. There was nothing neutral about his review as you have stated in other places on this forum.   But such subtleties are obviously beyond the boundaries of your extremely limited intellect. Probably another reason that you stay here rather than venture out onto one of the REAL furry sites, you don't feel quite so outclassed here.  


And why did you have to go and attack me there. I was only confirming what he already observed about the forums, although I did put a little humor in it.

Because you were badmouthing the site to a new user under the guise of ""humor"" so I told him how it really was.

All I did was verify what he already knew.  I pretty much told him the exact same thing you told him.  But it seems you have as much of a hardon for me as Reiter does.. If I was truly being honest I would have told him if he wanted views and feedback he should post his stories on SoFurry.  That also wouldn't have been "badmouthing the site" it would have been an honest assessment of what he should do to advance his goal of becoming a writer.  Whatever this site may have started out as, it is now basically a story archive with very few active members and almost no meaningful feedback.  And the forum is an even less vibrant place.  There are only about 5 people that still come here: you, Erkhyan, Altivo, Sasya and of course the STAR of the forums, ME *sarcastically takes bow*.  If I wasn't here this place would be completely dead.  I think you, Altivo and Erkhyan have chased away anyone that isn't in lockstep with your views.


In the this thread you were the first to bring it up (http://forum.furrag.com/index.php/topic,938.0.html).  We had been no where near that topic until you posted, "I don't know what you think you'll achieve by being unreasonable and attacking people personally. If you don't like it, why are you here? It was so long ago that you got a bad review on your work by one person who doesn't even come here any more, and you're still butthurt? Move on."  So it seems like if anyone is fixated on that review it appears to be you.  LOL

That's the sole reason you're here though LOL

My 23 story posts on this site prove that you again have your head planted firmly up your ass.  But I would expect nothing less from one of the former Red Pen Wielders.  I still post stories on this site on a semi-regular basis (not as often as I post to SoFurry, but I like to spend more time in the major leagues than down here in the bush leagues) so that is my main reason for still being here.  My guess is that I've actually posted more stuff here than you and Erkhyan combined, so maybe you should ask yourself if the sole reason you're here is to attack me.  LOL

But I will admit that part of the fun of being here is to bust the balls of the pretentious pseudo-intellectual snobs that crawl out from under their rocks when I come on the forums...  Which again has nothing to do with Reiter and his review.  At this point it has a lot more to do with you and your ilk.




Yes I am still mad at him. I'm Italian, for us holding grudges is a birthright and an art form, but that actually has nothing to do with any of the original posts I've made.

See above.

Ditto


PS Just looking at your avatar, you definitely look the part of the pretentious pseudo-intellectual snobs

Huh? It's a fox...now you really lost me. Is that fact that he's wearing glasses an indication that I'm pretentious? *sigh* Yep, you really do make me sigh that much.

The fact that he has glasses and is leaning back with a smug, pretentious self-satisfied grin on his muzzle would suggest that.  I guess your eye for art is just as bad as your eye for literature.  I'll bet you have a tin ear when it comes to music too.  Is there ANYTHING at all that you do well?  Well you are a fox... and we all know what they are talented at doing... But we can't mention that sex stuff here on this site...  LOL

Sorry to hear that.  I have my own business website for my dogs, but that is nothing like one of these sites, so this is beyond my area of expertise.  I just figured that there would be some relatively plug and play software that would work.
