Default Luke Valentine


Just to let you know, Luke Valentine is spamming threads for his 'publishing' venture, Gold Owl. Sometimes he pretends his name is Timmy, and he's dim enough to think nobody will notice.

To clarify (as he didn't) Gold Owl are interested in making money out of writers with proof-reading and editing services. They haven't, as yet, published anything, but I would guess that's a secondary function to selling their services.

They're owned by Luke Valentine, and have been in existence for about 5 weeks. It's rather dumb, and misleading, Luke, to refer to them in the third person; my assumption is that you think we're stupid.

Not a great bet if you're looking to find a reputable e-publisher, people, there's better out there who've been doing it for a lot longer.

Thanks for your weather eye, Mike! Spamming ain't polite.

And thanks to our brave leaders who fearlessly deleted many posts.

The thing that annoys me most is that if he'd said "This is me, this is what I do", I'd have had no argument. Lying doesn't create a good impression.

My name is Pete. I rape cattle.

See, now I have impunity.

Pete, sometimes, telling the truth doesn't create a good impression, either. *shakes head*

We knew about the cattle thing, Pete. *We were just too civil to mention it in public.

Well, I'm working towards offering paid editorial services, and if I think I could be bothered, I'll spam the forum honestly. Mediocre service at an eye-popping rate, with no guarantee of quality or expeditiousness.

I'm gonna be rich.
