It looks like I have been banned!

At least it won't let me post anymore or comment on posts.

One post is all it took for me to wear out my welcome. I must say with the way I have been treated on the comments side I am a little surprised. I thought I had a bit of a reputation as a prig and a pendant, rather than some wide eyed maniac attempting to destroy _Debate_ with my unauthorized posts. Haven't received any explanation, but I don't particularly expect one. That they would ban me for a politely dull post on politics, while allowing the incomprehensible ramblings of someone who thinks they have the spirit of an extraterrestrial transgendered dragon, is pretty telling.

And so I join the ranks of _ikilled007_, _hellfudge_ and _adamyoshida_ as mad, bad and dangerous to know!

Well that's just silly.

I've no idea what's going on with [livejournal.com profile] debate recently. Could be its finally gone to hell.

I sure don't get it...

I always enjoyed commenting there, and have rarely laughed so hard at a community. There are some funny and smart folks at _Debate_. Who knows, maybe they think they are "teaching me a lesson?" The only question I have is "what lesson should I learn?" Maybe its just an oversight?

I will promise this, however, whatever happens you won't catch me posting one of those meta-debate debates about how we should debate debate etc etc. That should be a real cause for banning!

Sad. Indeed.

I enjoy your posts, and am glad to see that you are updating more often. Too bad about debate though, it seems to be going downhill lately though...

Thanks. Now that winter is here I will be posting more often.

I actually thought _Debate_ had turned a corner in the past couple days. Ah well.

That community has gone to hell in a handbasket, to put it mildly. I assure you, friend, it is no loss.

>>hell in a handbasket<<

That seems to be the consensus.

>> it is no loss.<<


Its just so curious to me, though. Of all the dreck that has washed up on the _Debate_ shores, why was my post not only worthy of instant deletion but so offensive to the sensibilities of the Mods as to cause my summary banishment?

So. Weird.

Everything over there lately has been so.wierd. Twas a time when, though there were morons, actual meaningful debate took place there. WTF happened?

this is all very intriguing.

a friend alerted me to you mentioning me in a former incarnation. so of course, incentivized, i came to your journal to have a look-see. you were reinstated? how? why? is thies still there?

how could you just go on without me? wth

Not that intriguing, I'm afraid. Thies banned me, as the posts suggest, for "meme posting." You may remember Herr Thies's many pogroms during the height of the furry wars...well I was made an example, to set fear in the hearts of the others I suspect. Ha! Fat lot of good that did. As protest I posted for a while as [Bad username or site: @ livejournal.com] and a couple other 12th century philosophers then yadda, yadda, yadda Thies left and Catwoman reinstated me. It was all borderline amusing. Thies puts his head in, on occasion, persinickedy as always.

As for going on without you...its been more of a half life than anything, a shadow life. The living, for the most part, envy the dead. Without an [Bad username or site: @ livejournal.com] how do I know what to believe?

everyone needs an [livejournal.com profile] arbiteroftruth, it's true. i'm a beacon, really, always have been. a port in a storm---a buoy. is that how you spell buoy? whatever. you know what i mean. I GROUND PEOPLE. i center them. i show them the way. i'm like a nature guide, sans bears and anything resembling nature. i'm like a GOD.

yeah, that's it.

i bet you missed me hard, no?

i'm adding you.

you can't stop me, don't even try.

When you left... I remember, I...I...I cried, I wept like some grandmother. I wanted to tear my teeth out. I didn't know what I wanted to do. And I want to remember it. I never want to forget it. I never want to forget. And then I realized like I was shot, like I was shot with a diamond, a diamond bullet right through my forehead. And I thought, 'My God, the genius of that. The genius. The will to do that. Perfect, genuine, complete, crystalline, pure!

Add away, m'dear, but you see I am the most worthless of journalists.

It came to me, just now, in an apocalypse.

Hakuana matata, babe.
