open letter to Marc W., troll of the year nominee
I've reached my limit with Marc W.
Below is an open letter to him, in case you are interested.
In my post this morning about asking people to not play tag games in my comments (and I do have a good reason for that), you left the following comments:
You know, at first I was drawn to reading your blog--fascinated by how prolific you are, and even amused on occasion. But what's with the sudden imperious policing attitude? Not to sound like a creepy troll, but how desperate are you for attention, really? Why not focus on controlling things in your real life, rather than trying to establish supremacy over a society of semi-imaginary webfriends?
Yes, I know, I don't have to read your stuff if I don't want to. But given how much time you spend picking apart the viewpoints of others that *you* don't ever agree with, doesn't it cut both ways?
Well, apologies for not fully comprehending the context of the post I'm responding to, but maybe that's a good reminder to be a little less obtuse, and don't assume that a reader is following every little twist and turn in these online melodramas. Of everyone involved, it's certainly not me who needs to take this blogging thing less seriously.
Wow. I don't know where that all came from, Mark, but I think you need to get your meds under control.
I was making a snarky post to my friends about their silly little tag game. None of them were offended. And here you come on your high horse leaving comments as if I had asked people to behead the pope in my name. Melodrama? Hardly. My friends (not imaginary, not semi-imaginary, but real), know how to take those things. You did not know how to take it because, well, you're not my friend. Hell, you're not even someone I would have as imaginary friend, even if it was just to imagine beating your head in with a clue bat.
Speaking of melodrama, Marc, isn't that your name I saw all over the great Moxie debate, in every comment on every blog that talked about it? I think you even dropped in here a couple of times in relation to that melodrama.
Marc, may I suggest you look at my post once again, read your comments and play a game of How Out of Place Were My Comments?
I could really sit here and pick apart your trollish words bit by bit, but seeing as that you are obviously somewhat challenged in the making friends and influencing people department, I wouldn't want to make you look like more of an ass than you already did yourself. Great job, by the way.
Come back anytime, Marc. I wont squash your dissent, I promise.
