Important Star Wars Galaxies Update!!

As of last night, I'm now a novice bounty hunter! I can use the light lightning cannon! Just call me Boba Rhodes. Or just call me a lame-assed geek.

Actually, don't call me names. That's just mean.

How 'bout I just call you Bubba Rhodes and leave it at that?

Speaking of my sunshine personality, did you know I'm actually (theoretically) banned from ASV? I mean, I'm not really, of course, because I access from so many different IP addresses, but michele just posted a comment informing me that she'd banned me two months ago and I wasn't welcome there. I didn't actually know until she told me-- I stopped going there right around the same time she apparently banned me.

Not that I blame her, mind you. I did post a whole schtick on the Red Pages about how she'd been brainwashed by her jailbait husband, and various other posts about how she was an illiterate chump who'd let her nesting instinct turn her into a closet fascist. But that's still two high-traffic blogs I've been banned from just in the last year.

Of course, one of those blogs is now a lonely backwater wankfest that takes in a whopping 40 hits per day in spite of its NPR coverage and all that other business.

And in neither of my bannings was I banned for spamming or flooding or abusive language or any of that business. Both bans-- all about me being an asshole.

Kind of gives me a warm fuzzy, that does.

I thought ASV had been taken down by Michelle? Or, did she come back again? I haven't been there in ages. You really should get a special banning award, or something.

It's ironic, really, that blogs--in my mind one of the most powerful modern expressions of free speech--can be authored by so many people who seemingly aren't interested in listening to other people's opinions.

I argue and disagree with you plenty, more than is probably healthy, but I'm always willing to listen to what you have to say.

So far.

Interesting but not surprising that you got banned, Joshua. I actually asked for and got permission from Michele before engaging in a pretty long winded comment war with some folks after one of the debates.

She may be banning a bunch of other people because the comments are alot more polite now.

As for your nickname, Ryan. Let's punch it into the Nicknamerizer and see who you are. According to the Ultimate Nickname Generator your nickname (the X-rated version) is Cinamon. You'd think they'd at least spell it right. Your R-Rated is much better, Frisky Long Belly.

Don't feel too bad, it wanted to call me Cinamon Spunky Pillow-biter.

Johnny-- Actually Michele frequently defended me as long as I was arguing with her other posters. It was when I started arguing with her that things got tense. At one point she started in on the "blah blah blah don't come to my blog and tell me what's what" thing. Which has always annoyed me, so I retooled the Red Pages (previously created for the expressed purpose of talking smack about Ryan) and started using it talk smack about Michele. Evidently that's when she banned me. Not becuase of anything I said on her blog, but because of what I was saying about her on my blog.

Which I consider more surprising than interesting.

Not only are you a novice bounty hunter, you are also an experienced time-waster! Congratulations on continuing to play one of the worst online RPG's in existence. We should throw you a party :-)

Careful, Rick. I'm a bounty hunter now. I'll hunt your ass down, which shouldn't be too hard, seeing as how you work, like, a few blocks away from me.

Posted by: Ryan at October 12, 2004 04:47 PM

Ahh, yes, you are quite right, Joshua, my bad. Yeah, that is a little strange. What if the Red Pages had been anonymous and you'd just been referencing them? Curious stuff, indeed.

Ryan, keep getting that experience and one day, if you're lucky, you'll attain the prized title of Booty Hunter. Way more fun!

Ryan, you wouldn't kill one of your own, would you? We tech writers have to stick together! Besides, you wouldn't want me to have to use my jedi mind power of instant boredom causation upon you, would you? I've been honing it like you wouldn't believe these last few months.
