|Me The other guy|
Once again, I unfortunately find myself placed in the position of
having to address a certain controversial matter that I imagine most
of you won't have much interest in - might even be bored by, in fact.
I've dealt with the subject before, but the individual concerned seems
determined to pick at the scab by constantly adding, subtracting and
altering the details of his provocative and misleading remarks in an
malicious attempt to malign my name and impugn my good charac-
ter. Such an attack cannot go unanswered, but if you prefer to
skip such posts, I completely understand.
I guess his hits must be down. Why else would he be trying to stir
to account, so I resigned from the forum. My resignation, as far as I'm
leaving the forum. Yup, that was my 'crime' - I'd left the forum. The
site owner subsequently invited me to rejoin, but I declined because I
couldn't be bothered having to deal with the handful of @rseholes
who clearly regarded the site as their own personal playground
and didn't want to share it with me. No big loss.
two Blogs that I know of, the owner of one of them being informed that,
a warning would be issued to this person by his Internet Service Pro-
vider for his behaviour. (Whether it was or not I have no way of
knowing, but I hardly expect him to publicly admit to it.
He's done this before on quite a few occasions - it seems
to be a pattern of his. He makes remarks that readily apply to a
specific circumstance or person, but does so in such a way that allows
him to deny it when challenged. Then he levels accusations of paranoia
at whoever's calling him to account, hiding behind the fact that no names
were mentioned, even 'though it's fairly obvious just who or what his
comments or accusations were levelled at. He's fooling no one of
course, apart from himself and a few sycophants, but it allows
him to evade accountability for his outrageous statements.
What he perhaps doesn't realise is that I restored most of my
previous posts about him quite some time back (in response to his
continued attacks on me on various Blogs, forums and Twitter sites),
long before he'd mentioned I'd deleted them. Any that I didn't restore
was simply down to me not keeping them on account of them being no
longer topical, not because I was trying to conceal them for any reason.
In his typically obsessed way, he claims to have archived these posts,
so, if he'd be kind enough to supply me with copies of any he can't
find on my Blog, I'd be more than happy to re-post them.
To be completely honest with you, I find it utterly disgraceful
that a 'full-time professional comics contributor' should indulge in
such outrageously provocative and disingenuous behaviour, but he
obviously has problems of some kind. In the meantime, kindly re-
member - I've given you nothing but cold, hard facts - whereas
he continues to deal in lies, distortions and insinuations.
Hardly the behaviour of someone you can trust, I'd say.
UPDATE: In light of ridiculous claims on the man's blog,
note that all I've done is report the fact that he's revised the lies
about me on his site, and pointed out that he seems to be alluding
to me in his post about abusive emails - yet this he constitutes as an
attack on him. He seems to miss the point that if he didn't post lies
about me and attribute motives to me of his own invention, there'd be
no need for me to comment on it. For example, he's still claiming on
his blog that I was banned from a forum because of my behaviour,
which is a complete distortion of the facts. To deliberately distort
the truth is to lie, in my book. Yet he denies it without ever
addressing the evidence for it. The truth is out there!
