ok serious talk here. what happened prok?

first you close off comments then you mod comments and kick out people under fake names and stuff, now you writing readers digest stories.

is it me or did a linden telllll you something? did you get a "shape up or ship out" letter from linen labs? hamlet dropped you like a hot potato. i think thats a clue

from where i am sitting it looks like prok is trying to reinvent himself like some sleazy 80s pop star.

1. I closed off comments not to the whole blog, but to rebuttals to forums attacks. That enables people to see more clearly that *first* a forums attack happens, *then* I rebut it. So often people overlook that "first" part and think I've mounted some attack myself first, when I am merely responding to a forums where I cannot participate. By cutting off people's comments, I can remind them again that I can't defend myself on the SL forums, and can't even read parts of them. I think that's a healthy thing to do periodically.

2. I'm not moderating comments, I'm taking out illegible spam like BLAHALHQ@#$!@#$$ like you would some penis enlargement ad, and I'm asking that people post under the SL names so as to take accountability.

3. You're not posting under your SL name, informer, and it appears that you aren't a non-SL player but either just yet another manifestation of the stalker with other names, or someone else fearful of taking responsibilty for your actions for inexplicable reasons. Your critique has been understood and replicated a thousand times. You hate me, believe I'm a hypocrite, and see it as your job to keep outing me. OK, we got it. Now start your own blog on these "dramatic things" if you wish to find a readership, I'm not obliged to provide it to you here. Post under your SL name. Otherwise I'm removing your posts : )

4. I didn't get any letter or communication of any kind from SL except the most routine or pleasant interactions not indicating whatsoever any of this lurid fanboyz stuff that I'm going to be banned and I have to "shape up". Um, what am I supposed to "shape up"? A blog outside of SL's jurisdiction? And...why? Because I criticize and fight back against people who attack me on the SL forums they fail to moderate sufficiently?

5. I'm not inventing myself like a sleazy 80s star or any other star. I just thought it would be boring and repetitive to tell the same story again -- how the FIC gets privileges and behaves in an exasperating manner; how their bad behaviour only serves to get them more privileges so that even in their punishment they are privileged; how they complain or act up nonetheless until finally somebody gets sick of them; how, even when justice is righted for a few minutes, it's a very incomplete and very mixed-bag kind of justice; how the FIC complains bitterly at this "unfairness" despite its over-saturation of privileges already, etc.

I dunno, all the traditional themes are always there on the forums and SL. They are banal to repeat. I thought putting them in the forum of a story/parable would be humorous.

Like I said, the intellect and humour in this blog is apparently pitched over your head? I can't help you there.

Bye, informer! Happy New Year!

informer

i post under an assumed name for 2 reasons

we all know what you do with your enemies. i don't want any part of that. and i think you should debate the IDEAS, not the PERSON.

Kyrah Abattoir

Prokofy Neva

Hi, Barnes, I guess you're missing the "who's who" on this fable, oh well, if the shoe fits, don't walk a mile in it lol.

Lovely :) First people complain that Prokofy is too blunt and aggressive on his blog entries/posts/emails/notecards, now they complain that he writes satire!

Prokofy, I admire your persistence for taking up so much of those nonsense on the replies here. I really do; there seems to be no limit to your patience, since you even take time to answer each (or most, at least) of the comments. *sigh* What can I say? If people "hate you" and "believe you're a hypocrite", I wonder why they are so worried as to what you have to say, to come here and make any nasty comments and ad homine attacks...

As for the satire/pastiche format, I loved it and was laughing all the way until the end :) I fear, though, that literary attempts at stylish article blogs simply miss the mark. You're wasting your talent — people aren't ready yet for that format, I guess. I was expecting a completely different sort of comments here. Well, perhaps I'm ever the naive optimist.

Speaking strictly for myself, I'm delighted, and interested to see what style of article will come next :) Hmm, and perhaps — who knows? — a "SL Reader's Digest" blog will attract a different audience ;)

Clean up the vomit, fix that broken window, and enjoy the ride :)

Ossian

If these are real memories (and I assume they are, because Flint, Michigan is a real place), you might consider that you're not remembering *everything* that happened. I had older siblings, and I can tell you, when they were scolded, it wasn't *my* fault.
