Just for the record.. he can remove anything he wants from this section..
To all the people that reported DustinD's posts, why?Stephen Ardrey has asked to post his writing here and does not want anything he writes edited. That's fine with me, but I'm also not going to edit or remove anything that people respond with. Freedom of speech works both ways, so please don't report a post because you disagree with it.
I really don't want that either. It goes back to not sinking to their level. Let him speak air whatever grievences he has and move on. I am mostly worried about my next piece. I just really wrote this so you guys had a place to air your issues as well. I hate censorship no matter which way it flies.Check out propaganda and gaming or whatever it is you may like.
Hey DOUCHE! It's me K_F_M am I still a figment of anyone's imagination??? Haha! Bet you didn't think you'd be hearing from me again did you?? You need to stop acting like a spoiled two year old having a tantrum because nothing is going the way you want!
Not everyone is going to want to do a boring review. I think a variety of pieces is great as it makes a site more interesting and fun for readers. If it's just review after review after review etc....... I get bored very quickly. Also you need to learn how to take constructive criticism when it's given not act like your two and delete or belittle anyone.
Did you really thinking deleting comments was going to win you any favors? That just makes you look like the two year old douche you are. Before you criticize walk in their shoes. Stephen really has worked his ass off writing those pieces and has stayed up all night. To be a true journalist you have to make sacrifices and put yourself out there. He isn't AFTAID to do that. But my bad everyone makes sacrifices for YOU so you can stay happy.
So stop being a spoiled two year old get off your ass and actually work hard and try something new!!!!!! Trying working Stephen's schedule ( you wouldn't be able to do it. You would whine and complain the entire time) and leave him alone and let him write in peace as he has done nothing too any you or anyone else.
You suck so much deeyuk ray can a mod or someone shut him the fuck up
Sorry we are just really fucking pissed about this cock smoker always slamming someone
LOL'd. I had already went through that shit so I knew pretty much all of it already except the facebook shit. Poor kid. But comments like "I wouldn't call the death of an emo-kid a big loss to the world at large" makes me want to fucking murder him.
I would like more insight on this issue if you would be willing to provide it.But the fact that they are still following on your journalism clearly shows that they aren't over you.
By the way, you might want to throw in my story about getting censored for no fucking reason. You know if Ray keeps refutating and the situation arises. Also what's the deal with the DustinD username? Sorry I'm asking so many questions.
Also thanks for the unreleased article! Boy you live in fucking hell's pit. Everyone is a dealer, a murderer or a pedo. Crazy shit. I think you kinda exaggerated it a little with the wood spiders in a vagina, though.
So yeah, good stuff. Also if anyone asks why there's nothing incriminating in EP about them you can tell them it's because they fucking deleted it all (it's their own site, it should be abvious at this point). In places where they can't delete crap at will (FB) they resort to idiotic inhumane shit like "No big deal if someone kills himself". Fuck Ray.
Cliff notes version please.
I'll gladly post my comments publicly if a comment system that just requires your email (such as Disqus) is implemmented
What? Stephen is posting as me because I didn't want to make an account at RWS if all I was gonna do is post comments on Stephen's articles. Nothing wrong with that but I prefer emailing him my opinions. I'll gladly post my comments publicly if a comment system that just requires your email (such as Disqus) is implemmented. That's the only reason. And I have no goddamn idea who that guy is but I assure you it wasn't me. I've never advocated rape nor murder. I said I wanted to murder you, but you'll have to notice some subtle differences between that and what you did. Firstly, since we're apparently justificating ourselves now with literal semanthics, I said I wanted to murder you, not that I would. Huge difference. Secondly, that statement was in fact a private email I sent to Stephen expressing my indignation for your threats driving a person suicidal. I never intended that statement to go public. Not that I mind since I don't have anything to hide. But I never wanted to harass you (except for that time I'll mention later). So no that was not a death threat. And it should be noted that not even once has Stephen asked me to do anything aggresive to you or the community or the site. So stop making him look like the bad guy.
Everything you just said is true to some degree. Yes lots of people on the internet are douchebags for no reason, and I normally don't mind them as long as nobody gets hurt. Yes, maybe the girl was an attention whore. Yes, maybe Stephen used a shitload of alts. Yes, maybe he has no female fans. In this day and age faking stuff online is relatively easy. BUT, you are working around the premise that those things are facts when you might be very wrong. Case in point: I am no alt and I am a fan of Stephen's work. So really bashing someone, online or not, on the grounds that he/she MIGHT be an alt of some guy is an assholish thing to do. By the way, back when I commented back at TGV, if you thought I was an alt you surely didn't do a great job with your IP dig-ups. I am from a different country, on the other side of the planet.
Counterpoint: Stephen was fired from TGV. Now if Stephen wants to reveal details about his issue with you guys that's up to him but it's not the way you are portraying him. You are avoiding to mention a lot of stuff there.
Firstly, please don't use literal statements to back you up. When I say "faggot" I'm not thinking about how much you love to take it up the ass. Since you seem to be an expert on all things internet you should know by now that "faggot" has devolved into a generic insult. Feel free to change it for the generic insult that offends you the least. Just to make sure it's clear I have nothing against homosexuality and even have gay friends for that matter. So don't use it as an excuse.
Secondly, boy you had it coming. My first post was just stating that I agreed with another of the comments on your article and ratify that anyone could play a demo without any money and little effort.
That's as constructive as criticism gets. Then you deleted my comment. Later I posted another comment asking if my previous one had been deleted and asking for a reason. It got deleted as well. What was I supposed to do? Censorship pisses me off. So I wrote a short list of insults directed at you for that.
NOW, you are saying you don't regulate the comments. You have no proof of that in all honesty. I don't know the inside workings of TGV/EPForums. But you know what? I'll take your word for it. In the light of this new information, I take back all the insults I threw at you back at TGV. So if really, honestly, it wasn't you who deleted the comments, then I'll gladly swallow my pride and admit my mistake. And apologize for it if you even care. But okay, then maybe I'll head back to TGV and start criticising your work. I promise not to flame or insult anyone, I'll just give my opinion on it. See how long it takes before someone snaps.Also, I feel the need to point out I never wanted your posts in RWS (as well as in TGV) to be deleted. I hate all censorship in all possible ways.
Okay. I personally prefer you try to prove your point by doing actual work and not by flaming Stephen's work or deleting comments. Kudos.I don't know you, but I like when my hard work is appreciated. And Stephen didn't even go about boasting his ego with phrases like "Hey fucktards you better leave a comment and like my shit because I spent a lot of time doing my research and you can't do shit you useless fucks".
If anything, his used that argument to excuse himself for delaying his articles and when some of them ended up somewhat unpolished. And I am going to bring up a related issue I wanted to adress. Basically all the articles from people from the Forums have a 100% of community people comments. The same people you hang out with at the Forums and can probably be considered your friends for the most part. I don't see how having a fanbase composed of you internet friends is better than having one composed of real-life friends. Assuming that was actually Stephen's case, that is.
I would like to start by stating that I am amazed you could make any sense out of that quote. Seriously, out of context it's completely uncomprehensible. Again, I don't know how the site works. I have no idea what software you use and what are the capabilities of the writers using it.
I acknowdlege there are archive resources I don't know about, but since you seem to, please, direct me to a place I can see my archived deleted comments. As far as Google cache, there's no way in hell they are archiving a comment that was online for no more than 2 hours. In fact, I just checked the Google cache of your article and there's no comments on it. So no Google has not archived any of the deleted comments. But even asuming they did it's not the point. When people read your articles and scroll down to the comments they're not gonna wonder if there is stuff that got deleted and might be archived somewhere in the infinity of the internet. And you know it, that's why you deleted them anyway. If people could see the comments so effortlessly you wouldn't have even bothered.
Still, stalking someone based on assumptions, firing someone based on assumptions, dismissing someone based on assumptions and overall losing your shit based on assumptions is just wrong.
Again, I'm sorry. If you would care to tell me who to divert my rage to it would be much appreciated. If you are even allowed to pass that information, that is.
Still, persecuting people and driving them to attempted suicide is shit and I hope you can admit your mistake on that. I hear will be okay though so... well there's that.
