Your Own Personal Fidel Castro™
« on: December 20, 2011, 06:00:40 pm »
I’ve put a lot of thought into things, based on the 10 points thread.  It seems that I – or we – are simply not living up to the expectations of others.  We – some of us, anyway – are not the kind of people that decent folk want to associate with.  We are abrasive.  We are unpleasant.  We are the reason that the economy is in the shitter, why volcanoes erupt, and we signed Taylor Swift to a recording deal.

Okay, I can live with that.  I have no problem being the villain, if that is what people feel they must have, to form a complete community.  I can only speak for myself, of course, but seeing as how I cannot seem to live up to your high expectations, I shall endeavor to live down to your low expectations.  Indeed, I shall do so with a clear conscience, for three reasons:

One:   If you’re gonna say it, I may as well do it.  Granted, some of you haven’t said so in as many words, but Nigel and I being at fault seems to be the default position with just about everyone.  I am unsure whether this is intentional, or some fucked up attempt to be “fair & balanced”, nor do I care.

Two:  I am often told that I am not meeting expectations, in one way or another, yet I am never told what those expectations are, and indeed when I ASK, I am told that I am being a dick and that I should just forget it, etc.  I will not wear myself out trying to attain an impossible standard, so I certainly won’t drive myself batty trying to live up to a classified one.

Three:  A few of you decided that Nigel had to be included in this.  In fact, there have been references to “The Nigel and Roger Show”, and “rogerandnigel.com”.  It has in fact been hinted that one problem with the board is that we post too much.  Not that nobody else is posting, mind you, but that WE post too much.  Nigel and I have both reacted to this in different ways.  I will let her discuss her way if she so pleases…Contrary to popular myth, we are in fact two discreet people, not twins conjoined at the bile duct.  That being said, it’s really fucking hard to express how angry it makes me when this sort of shit occurs.  

Now, I have come in the last couple of months to accept that RWHN isn’t what I always thought he was.  He is, it turns out, a bit of a shitneck who has stated that we are his “entertainment”, so I can hardly hold anyone else responsible for the bits of scum that splatter out of his mouth from time to time.  

But while he is an overt dickhead, he’s hardly the only one who has cast me – and to some extent Nigel – as partners in crime, in the default bad guy in any and all situations (I have in fact been accused of ruining threads in which I never even posted, a feat that amazes the fuck out of me and one of which I didn’t think myself capable).

So, to hell with it.  What I was doing wasn’t working anyway.  Nobody was listening any fucking way.  There’s no point trying to point at the elephant in the living room, if all people are going to do is holler at you, right?  So, while PD may not be your personal army, I will from here on out be your personal Snidely Whiplash, your Dick Cheney, your Osama Bin Ladin, and your Barack Obama.  I shall fulfill all of your persecution needs.  I may have to make a demo tape, to further advertise my services (“Whether you need a government destabilized, or just have an opponent’s hand cut off, look no further!”).

So who’s afraid of The Good Reverend Roger?  

Fucking nobody.  You’re fucking A right.

I totally lied about the no more rants and sermons thing, just to kick things off.

ETA:  Edited for accuracy.

On behalf of the people here who don't find you and Nigel to be anything like what you said in the OP, can we still get the HOLY™ as Payne (our saviour, PBOH) intended?

Oh, sure.  Holiness™ is still a goal, as it transcends monkeys.  But I have really good rates on lime pits and knee-capping.  And just in time for the holidays!

I will, of course, post my demo tape (youtube link) here when I finish it.

I hope you know that my reference to RogerandNigel.com was

1) not intended to be a commentary on anything outside of the discussion being had at the time

and

2) something that arose strictly out of a combination of butthurt, frustration, and seasickness

and

3) I fucking love you guys, I think this board would be much poorer without your contributions, and I apologize for letting my own issues cause me snipe at you like that.

All of that said, I am thrilled to be able to finally get all of those people on my christmas list* the presents they so richly deserve.

So....does this mean you're going to have a stroke and hand over control of your account to your brother, in accordance with the finest socialist traditions of meritocracy?

Not that I mind, just so I have an advance warning you start ordering us to trim our hair in accordance with the socialist lifestyle.

I didn't take it personally.  It didn't seem to have any actual malice behind it when you said it, like it did when the prohibition yahoo said it.

I can't speak for Nigel, though.

1.  You guys really don't want to meet my brother.  He's like me, only without the laughs.  That, and he's a hard core republican, which in his case makes sense.

2.  Should I in fact ever become retarded enough to take over, I intend to allow experts to handle things like this.  LMNO will be responsible for personal grooming standards, no matter what.

This meets with my approval (not that you need it), except for:

MERKINS FOR ALL, MOTHERFUCKERS!

Before I agree, I would like to know who will be responsible for merkin inspection?

I would also like to file a complaint.  I blame you fuckers because I didn't have to Google that.

I never said anything about you and Nigel, individually I said you both, separately, have among others the highest post rate on the forum. The problem IS that nobody else is posting but it is also further compounded when a thread is filled with five to ten times the amount of posts from one person then anyone else, this isn't just you, or her or any one person, the simple fact of the matter is if someone goes into a thread that is six pages long and five of those are all between one or two people it doesn't make them want to post, it does the opposite; They close the thread and move on.

If you want to get angry about what is an honest criticism I made that is nothing more the an attempt to try and keep things fresh then go ahead.
May you find your worth in the waking world

Roger, I have a real response to your OP coming, but my bloody phone has dumped it twice.  I'll try again from home, typing it out on this thing again ain't happening.

RWHN, in particular, felt that this would be a good way to hurt Nigel, the same way he once commented on her love life  “No wonder your relationships always fall apart".  If a comment like that is permissible, if behavior like the above is acceptable, then I guess there are NO FUCKING LIMITS, ANYWHERE.  This works for me.

When the hell did I say that?  Link?  I think you are confusing me with someone else.  I mean, I get your conniption fit with everything else I've been commenting on, and expected no less, but I do have to draw the line at making shit up.

Well, it would be great if someone could provide a link to it.  I mean, it's not something I would say because A) I haven't been following the various ins and outs of Nigels love life (I try to avoid those threads as much as I can, from ALL posters) and B) I don't care.
