Jim Davis claims nobody could "generate ONE comment telling HE that he got his facts wrong."

HARLAN - One brief factual correction to your post, RE the mock REALMS cover: Ms. Bradford didn't cobble it together - certainly posted it and sung its praises, but she gives full credit (and a link back to the original posting) to the commenter to her blog who did create it, named "Charlotte".

Your post express what I feel far more eloquently than I could.
Thank You

Interesting revelation there Jim.

I have only "republished" one private message I've ever gotten, and that was a particularly vile note from "Billy Rubin" -- an identity you denied creating. If you did send that message, I owe someone an apology for blaming her for that particular piece of filth.

You don't like my moderating, fine, no skin off my back. Not my problem.

As for addressing your points, I did. I stated I was not engaging in the topic of what Harlan and/or Tempest were saying to each other. None of my business -- though you made it yours. I was simply noting that your comments were on-sided, though even noted you had a couple of points. My comment to you was solely regarding your occasional appearance only when there's something to deride, which, as I noted, makes them predictable and useless.
"Jim's here. We're sycophants and toadies. Yeah, yeah, move on." It completely negates the noteworthy things you may otherwise post. Ms. Bradford's fans fit your description nicely as well, but I don't see you posting this on her site. Just Harlan's.

Predictable and a bit of a yawn, that's all I'm saying.

Ellison-Loving Toady

Yep, that's me. Got my number exactly. Ellison-loving-toady. Sometimes a little too eager and impressed with my own verbiage and come off like a bit of an ass and a bigger bit of fool.

In a message somewhere down the stack, KOS gave us textual healing by saying:
===
They're the property of porn star Maxi Mounds, weigh twenty pounds each, and are certified by Guiness as being 36MMM.
===

And I was thinking, not only does Guinness make great stout, but they also get to assay boobies?

Clearly, CLEARLY, I am in the wrong line of work, as well as working for the wrong employer.

Reading: My rediscovery process continues. A cow-orker has left behind at work a copy, (in the popular Pyramid uniform series) of the PAINGOD book and I noticed he was really shaken by one of the stories he read.

I asked what it was about, and he said it was despair, then hope, then despair again the despair at having something offered in apparent good faith snatched away cruelly. Naturally, I'm referring to "The Discarded", a story which hit close to the bone for me, since it resembles the cynicism I sometimes feel in these days when great things are promised just to be snatched away with a shrug of the shoulder and, in essence, resembled parts of my childhood as well.

Rob posted a private message I sent him on the Forum. You said you had no problem with his doing that. So, yeah, Steve, you did "approve" it.

Now just ignore me, please. Or is that too difficult to do?

Jim Davis:

So I am named immature, apparently through some metaphysical parsing of emanations from a penumbra only you can detect, because I took part in an "endless discussion" of something you don't care about? An "endless discussion" which actually ended days ago after, what, two/three posts by me, two or three by Rob and a pair of comments from third parties? What, because it was a minor point of fact which I found interesting, and you didn't?

Interesting.

If only for its vapid and insipid egoism.

And now this: Someone calling themselves "Mary" writes something stupid here at 6 AM Pacific Time Sunday, and by 8 Am Pacific Time of the same Sunday you make the discovery that no one YET (GASP!) has come here, read her comment, denounced it and her, removed it with acid from the server, called for her to be waterboarded within an inch of her life. presumably to be followed followed by public humiliation while in sackcloth and ashes, we're ipso facto Bad People?

With some people, stupid goes right down to the bone. Do the phrase "Thick as a brick" come to mind?

Could it have been that you knew "Mary" was going to post something foolish, and carefully timed your visit the better to "discover" the Horrid Truth of our "indifference" to The Horror, so you might self righteously scold us? Plausible, and it would fit your craven nature. That's about the level of the variety of "clever" favored by common scolds.

I'll remember in future to set my alarm clock for 6 AM, especially on Sundays, the better to check Harlan Ellison's Art Deco Dining Pavilion for anything offensive and/or stupid. All the better to protect Western Civilization. Not to mention to avoid the scorn of a pissant.

None of this is in defense of any6thing Harlan Ellison did or did not do. You equate silence with approval. I equate your bleatings with a terminal case of stupidity. I prescribe a fresh can of whoop-ass.


To Jim Davis AND Rich "Turd Gobbler""

You are cowards. You have no problem attacking, but when the flame is turned on your panty waisted candy asses, you whine, tuck your yellow dog tails between your spindle-shafted legs, and run.

In this case, the spade is a fucking shovel.

You are poltroons.

Knaves

Lily livered Caspar Milquetoasts

Knee quivering yellowstripers

In a word: (Forgive me, ladies)

Pussies

Say shit to me again, to my face, anytime, anywhere. Feel free, maggots. I will give you some free Clifford Metherapy, right upside your pinheads.

The best part of each of you went into the back alley dumpster with the leaky condom your sire wore whilst spawning you.

As the man said, "If shit didn't splatter so bad, I'd of hit you harder."

You're leaving? Like the last time Rich left? As dogs return to their vomit, you will return to your spew here. It's the only life you have, by all indications.


Richm you ought remove the "Used To Be" from your White Trash union card. Word is you're still in good standing there. Lifetime and dues free, by your style.

Don't let the doorknob get stuck in your pimply asses on the way out, motherfuckers.

If you want to do back-and-forth remarks to one another about this whole issue and its offshoots, can't you take it to the Pavilion Annex... which is what the place was BUILT for in the first place? Seriously?

The maturity level here has dipped to an unbelievable low and each post just encourages such lowbrow mudslinging to continue. Bickering at one another here, in this particular part of Harlan Ellison's website, is not only pointless but distracting.

I'm of the live-and-let-live mentality and not normally one to say "shut the fuck up" in public, but the remarks are getting mean, low, lengthy and at times just downright stupid.

Harlan Ellison can fly.
Harlan Ellison can't shoot eye lasers.

That having been said, let's us move on to a new topic of discussion: The Exploitation of Our Fellow Mammals.

How strong are armadillo spines? If I tied an armadillo to each foot, then stood atop them, could they support my ample weight? What would be the top speed of a well trained pair of armadillo shoes?

Or

How does one go about domesticating bears so that in a few thousand years we have knee high house bears and elderly ladies and starlets have lap bears in their purses? Should we start with a grizzly stock or one that is already small, say sun stock?

Or

I want to catch a bunch of manatees and build an aquatic ranch where I can simultaneously build up the manatee population and enjoy that sweet, purple sea-cow steak. You could widen a stretch of bayou and grate of the head and tail so the manatees can't escape.

I welcome your thoughts.
