Well, fuck to that. I apologised to Jon, yet still the shyte came my way. Go look. No? Well fuckit. I warned the dipshit. He could have stopped. You could of asked him to stop, but did you? No you fuckin didn't, and nor did any fucker else who has witnessed their fuckin games before. The bushpig has a reputation for causing shit fights and pinky and fuckin perky joins in with her..... well as I said - what goes around comes around.
    This shit is old hat to me, and I'll bide my time, but I promise you - this shit has just only fuckin started.
    Sent with respect of course.
    Let me ask you this. Why do you feel you have to 'settle' things here in this thread? It's got NOTHING to do with the history you're trying to bring to some sort of victorious closure, and you're biggest achievement is to only create more enemies. What kind of mature adult lives that way? You mention, or more aptly, CROW about your extensive experience with these types of online conflicts and what you're 'capable of bringing'. I'm willing to bet any sum of money you didn't gain all that "experience" thru all those years by being a reasonably nice, agreeable individual. Prove me wrong.

    JJ,

    Let me flip the coin.
    Since I have been here as a member, I have gone out my way to be as good/respectful as everybody I have come into contact with. I have played under the rules of the forum. I have been courteous and shown respect to those who have done likewise towards me. I have, as mentioned - cursed in the forum as admitted. That as you are aware, is apparantly acceptable by all accounts, but I've not even said bugger in the open forum. I would like to think I made, as much as is possible on a faceless forum, people that could be classed as 'friends', or if at best, friendly acquaintences. I've played the game.
    Yesterday and the day before, you know as well as I do, that when the smelly hit the fan, I apologised to Jon. I didn't have to, but thats what happens when you can accept you are wrong. Jon was gracious enough to accept, but then, the bushpig stuck her oar in, blatantly chastised me, when ignoring what somebody else had written, and then had the audacity to try and pass the word off as 'acceptable' for him and anybody else who chose/chooses to use the word, but not when I use it. You wish for me to roll my neck in, I accept that, but don't accept me to stand here and be ridiculed by a person who wants to play by two sets of rules such as the bushpig did/does. That wont ever happen. To cap that off, she lied point blank. She knows it, and I know it, but the pendulum swings against me because I'm the new person to the site, and she is 'old school'. Yet many here, and also others elsewhere on fountain pen fraternitys, are fully aware of what she is like. What games her and her cohorts play. I'm not bigging it up, but she/they chose the wrong rockape to mess with. What they, the bush pig, and pinky and perky do to people is OK by your rule book??, but retaliating, be it form you don't like, is not right. Now I don't understand that. As for your comment - reasonably nice guy - well, that isn't for me to say, that is for others to judge, but as I have said - before the shit hit the fan these last couple of days - I think I showedI am, or at least I would like to think I did.
    Online conflicts - yes, I admit I have had many. Many I started, and many I didn't, but I can tell you this - I only ever went after the arsehats and never after decent people. Anyway - I've answered you, so you can answer my question if you don't mind. Do you know of what I write regarding the 'bullying' and 'victimization' I mention regarding the bushpig and Pinky and Perky? or the other shit they caused with other people? If not - ask around. My main question to you is this though. You were/are quick enough to get me from rocking the boat, yet you haven't uttered a word to Pinky and the bushpig - asking them to stop. How the hell she thinks I'm a kiwi, and then pinky saying I was somebody else? Not one word from you, yet plenty to me..... and all for continuing to use a word that is acceptable. Anyway, I'll self moderate my post, but this will be the last time I will. If it starts again....

    This very same pattern has been exhibited over the years that have sought to shift responsibility, blame and even guilt for misbehavior onto other members as part of some kind of emotional neediness. Then there are these publicly declared departures to elicit sympathy - only to drift back into the forum again for a honeymoon period until the misbehavior begins anew. A search on member ID and the word "goodbye" will show just a sliver of the history and the grudges.

    Like a close call with a con artist, learn the lesson what to watch out for and ignore, then move on to enjoy this community with the majority of its members and our pens!

    All shit aside - what is your beef with me, Pinky? Grow up and tell all what I have done to you. What is gripping your shit?
    Did I forget to dot an (i) or cross a (t). Are you offended that my 'their' should be 'there'
    Did I happen to outbid you on an auction site item? What is it? Come on 'pray tell'.

    Unaltered and in full, message from Chrissy.

    You need to go back and read again exactly the words I posted in reply to the words you posted and you will see that you are making a huge mountain out of a molehill. I did not lie. I did not call you any names. I did not ask anyone else to come and join in the thread. Just go back and see your that you are overreacting to absolutely nothing. Nothing was wrong I just decided to not talk to you again. - Quote

    Let me disect this for you as you seem to be relying on your side of fact whereby it is blatant fiction......

    You say - '...You need to go back and read again exactly the words I posted in reply to the words you posted and you will see that you are making a huge mountain out of a molehill'

    No, I have no need to go and read what you wrote - you said that the word 'fuck' is acceptable for Jon but not for me. Yet you're condemning me for writting the same word. We both know that if I hadn't picked you up on that you would have thought you got away with it. As it is, I did, and you didn't.

    "I did not lie"

    Yes, you did. I know it, and you know it, and you have the belief if you say it enough you'll be exhonerated.

    "I did not call you any names. I did not ask anyone else to come and join in the thread."

    Where did I say you asked anybody to come and join the thread?

    "Just go back and see your that you are overreacting to absolutely nothing."

    HAHAHAHAHAHAHA. Yeah, you'd love that to be the case, but it isn't, is it.

    "Nothing was wrong I just decided to not talk to you again."

    I don't know what you mean by, "Nothing was wrong.", but please don't bother to try to explain. I'm not interested. As for you deciding to not talk to me again.... you decided to write me a load of bollocks in a private message instead, huh. Are you an alcoholic? Drink problem? Are you a smack head chasing the dragon? The reason I ask - you couldn't chew wrigleys and walk in a straight line at the same time, could you. You are incapable of telling the truth when put in the corner. You think I'm going to sit back whilst you try to do to me what you have done to others here and elsewhere. It isn't happening.
    Now keep to your word. Don't have any contact with me either on the open forum or in private message. You have nothing I need to read or know.

    Not that I don't trust her, but I don't trust her, so I've given her my reply.

    I've already placed this user on my ignore list but unblocked it just to post a few responses to my probably ill advised attempt to prevent this thread from getting any worse. That is likely to be impossible.
    This was my title to my PM: "You are blowing something up from absolutely nothing"
    My exact words were " You need to go back and read again exactly the words I posted in reply to the words you posted and you will see that you are making a huge mountain out of a molehill. I did not lie. I did not call you any names. I did not ask anyone else to come and join in the thread. Just go back and see your that you are overreacting to absolutely nothing. Nothing was wrong I just decided to not talk to you again."

    I was extremely careful with the exact words I posted and edited it many times as you can see by the extraneous "your" that I left in by mistake. I did that because I know that David Jackson always posts PM's on the forum and I knew for certain he would do exactly that with any PM I sent since he did this when I sent him a PM as Empty_of_Clouds. And lo and behold here it is as predicted.

    I did not say that particular word was acceptable from Jon. Carpio never used that particular word once. In the post I referred to all of his many uses of the word ended in in' or ing Anyone can go back to my post #30 and see exactly what I said. I did not lie.

    I can safely state that I have never been to New Zealand without telling a lie. When Carpio asked me for a list of my pens and inks I had for sale I said I didn't have a specific list and that was not a lie. When he asked for a Taccia ink I said I didn't have it and I did not lie . He asked me if I could recommend a similar Diamine ink and I did. That was not a lie. I also said that I could not sell him any Diamine inks for less than he could buy them on Cult Pens or The Writing Desk purely on the cost to post them. Not a lie.

    He just wants to carry on doing what he always does. This is where you need to add his name to your Ignore list.

    Edited just to to correct tfrom his post #62 that he is wrong about profane language being permitted in The Lounge. Nothing on the forum list gives a warning to say that. The Lounge is an open forum that appears on the first page of New Posts. He may be getting confused with the Politics forum that isn't an open forum where there IS a warning.
    He is also wrong about never having even said as much as "bugger" in an open forum. He has said this in his thread about mixing Walnut Crystals here in his post #3 he says it twice.

    You're a liar. As simple as that. You know exactly what inks you offered me in open forum and then gave your bullshit excuses when I asked you how much you wanted me to pay you for them, just as you lied regarding calling me out in June regarding the PTFE chat/delete your thread and I'll delete mine, but you didn't did you, bushpig.
    As for my being David Jackson - nope, not me, nor have I heard of him (but if he hated you I'd buy him a crate of piss) another of your dellusions, bushpig, as it is you saying I'm a kiwi. Oh, how I wish. (oh, I was cheering for them again tonight, bushpig)
    What is so funny, is how you're flying up your own arse when you're riding solo without pinky and perky to guide you what to say. Take your time and fill your glass. Have you run out of silver foil. If you have - lifes a bitch, huh.
    You're an idiot. Even Stevie Wonder could see that my saying I havent even said 'bugger' in the forum was in relation to me noy using bad language in the forum (other than lounge) You're digging deep there, bushpig, huh. As for the lounge - anybody with a modicum of common sense (counts you out) can understand what the following means between the lines,..... "Topics pertaining to politics, religion, philosophy, and social issues. Not for the faint of heart. Also, do not post while high on ink fumes or after using ballpoints. However, please post as much as you want if coming from FPN. You have been warned.".
    Anyway, I have the Yankees to watch on the tv.

    She wont see this, as I'm on blocked. Yeah right. ROFLMMFFAO

    Lets see what crap comes my way out of this.

    JJ - Your turn. ;-)

    Bonus: I'll sit in on drums this time. Same band as this year, though, Farmboy - they were good.

    How about a Rotring Initial with a Winchester lever-action snorkel?

    But but but... can't I just play nice? Do I really have to to be prepared to use lethal force?

    It just seems all wrong. (Sigh.) I just want to have a little innocent fun. Is that too much to ask for?
