FunnySad, part 2

I always find it amusing when somebody who has been a dick to me publicly, made broad pronouncements about “not letting the door hit me in the ass on my way out”, and has generally (supposedly) written me off….

…still apparently reads my journal, and gets worked up enough to post about it.

If I’m so fascinating that he can’t stop reading, he’s more than welcome to post comments and questions here. I’d happily answer.

Somehow, however, I’m expecting silence.

  1. You do have a point, though. I could have just let it slide.

    But he asked some direct questions in that post, which I can’t respond to (he requires registration at his site), so I was offering the opportunity (however unlikely) for him to pose them here, so I could respond.

    Not sure why it matters. P’raps it doesn’t.

  2. SOME KIDS JUST DONT GET IT…

    CAPS LOCK FOR WORK, SORRY…

    WHAT REALLY STEAMS ME, IS THAT HE LIKELY KNOWS A METRIC F**K TON OF THE SAME LARP PEOPLE I KNOW…WHICH NOW MAKES THEM SEEM SOMEHOW…DIRTY… TO ME NOW…I FEEL BAD FOR THEM…

    I’LL GO CRY NOW…

    HE’S STILL A F**KTARD…BUSINESS AS USUAL

  3. I’m not trying to be antagonistic; I’m curious about something.

    You say he has questions you’d like to answer, but you can’t because you choose not to register for the site. That seems very valid to me, as I’ve chosen not to register either, but as you’ve already gone so far as posting a link to the article and stating that you’d like to answer his questions, why not simply answer them…here? Or in e-mail?

    The whole thing of him trashing you in his space, and your response here, smacks of “Oh yeah? Well step across this line and say that!” I understand if you’d prefer to have control over the space where the conversation is taking place; I’d imagine he would prefer to have the same editorial control. But this has a very odd Old West ‘Calling you out’ feel all ’round.

    Love,

  4. I blame the game that I’m designing for putting me in that mindset. :)

    Part of it, I guess, was me letting him know that I’m aware that he’s reading, and stating flat-out that if he has comments, he’s free to post. However, I suspect that he’s not interested in answers — I think that the things he raised in his article were nothing more than smacks taken at my expense.

  5. Fair enough. I can understand that impulse.

    I don’t claim to have much of an idea what’s gone on between you all. I’ve been glad for my seven hundred miles more than once since last winter. But it seems to me that as little as you guys seem to want any sort of involvement, you can’t seem to stop picking at each other like last week’s scabs (it took me a minute, for example, to understand a previous post about geographical personality attributes, but I got it eventually). The one who comes off as the better man in this is either going to be the one who completely walks away, ignoring any real or perceived attacks until the other one blusters himself hoarse, or he’s going to be the one who responds with civility to even the most incendiary comments. I know you say you’re done, and so does he, but it doesn’t so much seem like that, so perhaps the path of wisdom is to consider that while the last man *standing* may win or lose this one, the last man *shooting* will surely lose it.

    I’m sure he knows you’re reading, as I imagine it’s crossed your mind that he might still be reading your public posts. I would think he wrote what he did to get a response from you, just as much as this was written to get a response from him. We could go all Thomas Aquinas and try to figure out which of you is the Prime Mover, or we could not, but I think one of you, at some point, is going to have to just roll his eyes and keep on walking no matter what the other says.
