It's about fishing for approval using a topic that just about everyone can agree with, at least on the surface.

Of course, the standard Native American reference is the icing on the cake!

Yep. And if it were just attention seeking Iíd feel sorry for CB and probably lay off. But itís also the intentional, irrational, disruption. The admitted bending of reality that is designed to destabilize a platform.

I have compassion for people who are honestly trying. Iím not going to smash someone who is making an honest effort.

I really think this is an old way of thinking. I am a public person with a public business that has his real life information everywhere. I have nothing to hide in that respect. I give my phone number out to hundreds of people each month. I suppose some asshole could spam me with phone calls, but that would be a minor nuisance which could be quickly resolved.

Iím not posting a credit card number or social security number (although those arenít beyond the reach of any random hacker who wants it, Iím sure).

I simply invited anyone to call or text me if they want. Iím not a troll (although I do sometimes troll particular threads). Iím not hiding behind my screen name. I am invested in some friendships here and would enjoy continuing any of them in any other format available.

This thread is the way you see it now because it was disingenuous to start with. Iím sorry if you canít see that.

("...just I'm weary of those I encounter online I suppose, those stories of internet bullying, identity theft, or worse even, are both real and probably far more common than anyone gives credence to..." replied the goblin preferring to keep it anonymous now, adding "...well brian, you could be exactly who you say you are, but then again you could be a raving psychopath out to chop up his next victim, so rather than risking the latter, I prefer to keep my mask on, telling everyone to keep their masks on too, simply I accept that you are who you say you are, even if your brother reading this post is the head of the mafia, then again, you might be harmless, but then someone else picking up on my PI, whom neither of us know in fact, might choose to attack me merely because they don't like green skins nor pointed ears, btw is it true that you told someone called Tim to say that he was you if anyone phones, just your way of remaining anonymous I guess...", for such was the realm of fiction then, where it was only ever believable to those who cared to believe in it, smiling "...just to put this into context here, I'm addressing a sane human being I imagine, which kind of makes me sane by it, whereas you are addressing a goblin here, which kind of makes you, well not I suppose...")

Iím assuming there is a human under the goblin costume and donít see any harm in playing along.

And if I am looking to chop off some heads, youíd be pretty safe in Switzerland.

I'll usually cop to "Dickhead" as long as it's capitalized and preceded by "Fucking."

I'm picky that way.

But Grace -- are we losing Grace? That'd be a shame, but someone doesn't need to leave the whole house the party is in, just because the boys are snorting coke in the upstairs bathroom.

And flea, most of the people who have been around any amount of time lost patience with CB long ago (the "Cityboy" moniker comes from my reaction to him calling me a snitch, oh so long ago, when I and he were completely different people.)

("...apologies, I overreacted to the situation, where there's a difference between "leaving off" and "leaving for good", suffice to say Grace is leaving off at this point though whether the former becomes the latter is her decision..." went the goblin who while here was not his external, saying "...once online one is a persona like everyone else is, in other words one is a mask of an alter ego behind it, where I do like to give my alter ego full sway instead of portraying myself as my externals each time, for I'm not what I have, nor how I look, nor how much money I have in the bank, nor my age, nor my gender, for all that is quite unprovable as my external isn't it, but then again I can't leave it as the blanc "says the one who is writing this" because readers from experience hate that blanc there, then again I could write the truth, which is "says the alter ego" here, but I don't think that truth would be as readily accepted as the personification of my persona as a goblin would be, simply that's how I seem to be here and that's how my mind seems to react to the slot, where this feeding the slot turns me into this goblin personification of my persona...", to which the slot just ventured "...goblin, in all fairness I feel that explanation is slightly too intellectual for them to grasp really, couldn't you just politely relate to them that you're mad and leave it like that then, after all no one normal ever writes so you'd be in good company so to speak...", "...ah yes I do seem to be in good company..." admitted the goblin as he pressed the "post quick reply" button to shut the slot from trapping him further)
