Post for Professor Willie

Below are selected paragraphs from two of Jim's earlier letters to Queenie and Trevor:

Jim said:
Quote:
<font face="Verdana, Arial, Helvetica" size="2">There's something very similar in the way both of you are responding on these forums... Both of you seem to be incredibly defensive about everything... Almost paranoid... When I re-read the threads, there's an obvious pattern... Queenie will respond to a post and then cast a barb out basically provoking more confrontation... always with a smirk and a bit of pride that she has the ability to 'stir things up...
I would love either of you to post a calm, coherent, concise positive message for the rest of us to read... Maybe we could stop the mudslinging...

Queenie, why don't you tell us who you are? Why the anonymous charade? You keep saying you're part of this community and you supposedly know all of us, but you're not making any friends being so negative. How are we supposed to get to know you?

It is obvious that everyone here is enjoying the Blah Blah Blah Forum. So much so, that today there were only two posts outside this forum (Three counting my single 'news' post.) And there were 75+ (and counting) inside the Blah Blah Blah Forum. Of the over 75 posts, I'd say approximately 5 were genuinely positive. The rest were either negative or some kind of sarcastic response/reply--furthering the negative stuff. I'm as guilty as anyone. It's kind of fun to post a funny reply to an easy target. I don't think anyone here is really being mean. It's just that based on what we have to work with, the sarcasm and wit comes out faster than anything of content. So basically, What I'm saying is that I'm personally going to cut it out. I'll make an attempt to be positive and not nit pick. I ask everyone else to do the same. (Except for Martin... Please keep up the good work.)
I have a few requests. SERIOUS requests.

Queenie: Please stop your games. I will not respond to a defensive reply from you. I know you'll post one. I'll read it, but I will not argue with you. I just want you to know that we all really have a pretty good acquaintance with each other. We have websites to check each other out. You do not. We will have intelligent conversations with you if you allow us to. However:
1. We need to know who you are and where you came from. Just say it. 2. Please offer us the beginning of an intelligent conversation with a specific topic perhaps in a different forum. We're all intelligent people. We love to give our opinions. The arguing and teasing is going to get really tiring really soon. That's why I'm saying this now. I'm tired of it and it's only day three.

The rest of you: I urge you to practice restraint. Do not reply to flames. Or if you do, reply calmly. It is difficult to do, but I think the Forums will grow and mature if we grow and mature a bit ourselves.
I'm going to try to do my part.
I had wanted to go back and re-mark certain sentences with italics or boldface... until I realized that I would be marking at least 80% of the message. It is ALL worth several readings.

I think it is important to put on the record for those lurking around these parts, that I have never initiated contact with you of any kind, either here or in private, whether in writing or in person. In fact, you and I have never met in person. It is also a fact that by now you have twice threatened me with computer virus' of one kind or another, and that you have twice sent pornographic pictures to my private email account, presented as photos of yourself. (In case you are a little confused, Prof Willie is not a man, she just likes to pretend she is.)

I have no idea why you have fixated on me, Professor, but it is not the first time you have tried dragging me down into the mud with you into some bottomless flame war. You tried last year and you did not succeed, and so after a brief rest period it seems you have decided to try once more. But for your information I have better things to do, so if you like: you win! I conceed! You are too good for me! There, are you satisfied?

So go on and reply however you feel you need to in order to remain in control. I will not say or do anything to disagree or to chastise. From now on you are a non-issue and you will be treated accordingly.

Maybe if we ever do get a chance to meet in person (no pun intended) you can take a moment and explain why you have spent so much of your time and energy stalking someone you have never even met. But then again, I really don't think I give a shit.

Goodbye.

A book of rules;

A stumbling block -
Or a stepping stone.

Once again, all it took was a mention of her name and she's back.... The first mention of her name in over a month and up pops her first post in over a month.

Jeez. And it looks like she's getting a grasp of technology, but still needs work on 'taste.'

Yes, this is a flame.

It could be a flame but it looks more like seaweed in a whirlpool to me. I'd try red or yellow next time, Queenie.
Pornography, like entertainment, is in the eye of the beholder. For those who wish to view the "porn" I sent chance(sic) click here http://chalkcircle.com.au/bodyart/bodyart1.htm
I suspect it is as pornographic as chance is sane.
PS. So glad you liked it Adam, wait until you see the new ones, they should be up this week.

Question

Hey Professor,

Is that you in the picture or did you do the painting. Just wondering, it looks cool.

No Flames, but if you like 'em....

I have peeped in here from time to time, but never seen anything worth reply to.....
As usual you blame everyone else for starting a war Jim, what did I say that was offensive yesterday??? Its you thats starting a flame war with me, not the other way round. It seems to be more like whenever YOU see MY name you have to start!

Janet,

This is in no way an attack... It is purely administrative.

Your animations have crashed my browsers (both Explorer and Netscape) twice.

It may be the server they're sitting on or they just may be too much for this system to handle, either way, that's why I deleted them.

I asked a long time ago for people to refrain from posting animations because they are unstable.

Clown

Spleen spleen vent vent
Its winter in the northern bit.
Much to cold to go outside,
Punch out projections on the wire.

Not much relevent crap to say,
But ill just say crap anyway.
Bored the pants of everyone.
Now they hate me wheres my gun!

Mummy told me when so small.
"Say something nice or not at all."
Didnt listen to my mum,
Got large carrot up my bum.

Mirror mirror on the wall
We is all reflections of it all.
My own thoughts create my deeds,
What means word responsibility?

Me just want to make you smile.
Life is short too short for bile.
So i leave it in my spleen,
Where it does its work,
Quietly and unseen.
