I'm not even sure if my comments will be "allowed" to remain on this thread. But since my name has been mentioned here - a public forum - along with accusations against me, I wanted to address them.
It is interesting how his members go into attack mode as soon as you show up.
There was a reason for people bristling when Ark showed up, and I'm not sure why you wouldn't understand or get where the hard feelings came from. A warning disclaimer was put up on the Cass/Signs page regarding Tom and his work, so when Ark registered to the Noble Realms forum and began posting, yes, it was quite a surprise, to many of us. And no, it didn't go over very well. Admittedly, at this stage in my life I would probably react a bit differently, more low key. But that was then, and what's done is done. Live and learn.
This lyra character, who is obviously very closely related with Tom,does go out of her way to "organize the ranks" to attack you.
No Neil, there was no "organizing of the ranks." The one thing that anybody on NR can vouch for is that I don't need - nor ask for - the back up support of other people, nor try to organize people to go after others. If I have something to say, I say it and can stand on my own two feet. People may not like what I have to say....but I don't need to hide behind others, or rally others behind me, nor do I waste my time organizing people. That's very "junior high" level behavior.
It was interesting how lyra pressed her opinions so on bumblebee, more or less brutally insulting that person until everything was seen her way.
"Brutally" insulting is a bit dramatic, don't you think? You're also missing the full story of what was going on with "Bumblebee." There was more to it than just what you saw on the public forum. There usually is, so never assume that you're clued in with the full story and all the details. Something that you and others may not realize is that Bumblebee, (at that point anyway) was intricately involved in the Cass group.....AND the NR forum. He was posting at both forums and trying to keep his identity concealed from Laura and Ark. He didn't want them knowing he was posting on NR in "enemy territory" so to speak, and thought it would be detrimental to his standing in the Cass group. How do I know this? Because he emailed me off the forum.
So yes, bet you didn't know that, did you? Bumblebee was somebody who I was emailing with. And here you just thought Vicious Lyra was brutally going after some poor random guy.
Bumblebee was somebody who emailed me a couple of times, and was a nice guy, but a bit weird, and kind of annoying with all his tiptoeing fear and paranoia that God forbid Laura and Ark should "find out who he is!" At one point out of annoyance I "outed" him by referring to him by his first name on the forum - because wishy washy game playing doesn't sit well with me - which resulted in Bumblebee emailing me and begging me to remove his name so L&A wouldn't see. Which I did. So, you are definitely missing the facts on the "Bumblebee" story. But your version of events is certainly far more neferous and evil sounding, and thus, more interesting, so if you'd prefer to stick with that one instead of the truth, then, go for it.
it does seem lyra is organizing her little army to get you. I also found it interesting that she throws out all of these crazy accusations against you over a post that really reveals nothing about your intentions, and that somehow everyone pretty much believes it.
Yes, now we get to the good part. Organizing my little army. Paranoia, anybody?
Neil, the following thread, which you seem to not be aware of, speaks for itself:"Montalk: Dissing LArk and the Cassiopaeans"http://forum.noblerealms.org/viewtopic.php?id=2270
How do you reconcile your claim that I'm supposedly "organizing my little army" to get Laura with the comments I made in the above referenced thread?
For those who may not take the time to click on this link: This was a thread where some dude named Andrew showed up, gleefully trying to get Montalk and others to stampede on over to the Godlike Productions forum where there was a Laura and C's bash-fest going on. To say that Andrew's proposition ticked me off is putting it mildly. Some highlights of that thread include:
Why is it "exciting" when people choose to spend all their time ripping apart other people?
That's not exciting. That's called a waste of time, and an energy drain.
And an FYI - These Jay Weidner, Vincent Bridges characters act like programmed robots. It's like they've been programmed to endlessly, obsessively go after Laura and the C's material with tunnel vision, year after year. It never ends. They never get tired of it. They never find other obsessions to obsess over. Is this all that these guys DO? Do they even HAVE a life??
Then when Andrew said "Laura Knight Jadczyk is not at all who she purports to be" I said:
Really? Says who?
And even if she isn't......so what? Why do you (or anybody else) care?
And the grand finale:
So seriously, get a life. Andrew, and everybody else who wants to keep dredging this crap up, over and over and over again, year after year after year. Get a flippin' life. It's sad, and pathetic at this point. The world is turning upside at the moment, our personal realities are changing, our old existences are flying out the window, and this is what you care about?? You get excited about the idea of going to a forum soley to "diss" LArk and the Cassiopaeans?
So, "organizing my little army?" Hardly. And the above referenced thread speaks for itself. Don't project what you would do, or the type of behavior you're familiar with, onto a stranger you know nothing about, and especially when you're missing 98% of the story. Besides, if I was "organizing my little army" to go after Laura, then don't you think she would have heard something about it by now? You know, just a thought.
This post will be a one time deal, to address points being made on a public message board forum about me, so the mods don't have to worry about putting me on "watch" mode or whatever. My intent isn't to show up here and disrupt the forum with back and forth debating and fighting, causing trouble. Not interested in that sort of energy drain. As it is, I took some time to decide whether I wanted to even respond to Neil's comments or not. I will say this to Neil though, in closing: Your post in general reeks of being a sycophant, like you're trying a bit too hard to say all the right things to butter up Laura and Ark and make sure to get on their good side. The way you present your "transition" from Montalk/Noble Realms reader to Cass group convert is too "oily," for lack of a better way to put it. Very slick.
