The truth stands alone
    #3597327 - 01/08/05 06:37 AM (12 years, 7 months ago)

The truth stands alone.

It does not need to be shored up in any manner. It does not need colorful banners briskly snapping in the breeze nor loud music playing. When you take a truth and dress it up with half-truths, hear-say, distortions, and hyperbole to better make others see your point of view, what you are speaking now is no longer the truth even though the rationalizer believes it is "for the greater good". The truth then cannot breathe and begins to smell funny.

No matter how many salesmen begin telling you how nice this rancid truth smells, aware people will notice and frequently the salesmen will pull the trick of offering you a "new and improved" truth that reeks even worse. When that also fails, more cleverness is attempted as the game is now about protecting one's ego and has lost any and all semblance of truth. This "cleverness" includes rewriting history and silencing the critics while repeating the same false mantra. Please, leave the truth be to tell its own story.

The truth stands alone.

Feel better now? No?

Welcome back anyway. Hope it all works out and you can stay. Not as much fun without you.

"The truth stands alone"

The "truth", like reality, depends on your perspective.

Haven't you heard that fragrance is added to vehicles?
"Eau de Truck Driver" was DESIGNED to smell like diesel and Denny's.

Do you really want to know? Why would a moderator say that I was banned from another website? Not only is this irrelevant, but is a total fabrication (never happened). Why would this same person say I told Trendal to "shove it"? How do these lies help the situation? Why was it said that there were "countless PMs and eveything possible was done" to prevent my banning? There was EXACTLY ONE PM (to the best of my recollection) since my last banning some nine months ago and it contained no specifics. Why was it intially said that my crimes were too numerous to show them all then later several admins admitted there were no direct violations as I am "too clever" to violate the rules.

The core truth was "several people have complained about you". Then it was added to and added to until very little truth remained.

Why front then? Why use a vague, "philosophical" snippet of text to convey a message of personal beef?

Because all "normal" avenues of communication have been closed to me.

oh ok. i thought you were actually trying to make a spiritual or philosophical point. but your just drama queening it up.

Ok so lets say you got unfair treatment. lets say someone was downright mean to you. That has happend to all of us. The differance is, it took me less time to get over mean treatment in the playground when i was 6 then its taking you att 45 (guessing your age)

Please keep all feedback specifically related to your recent bans in the WAF forum, or via PM to one of the Admins.
