In my career as the Chief Poopervisor of the Pottie-Project I have been witness to a great number of seagulls who have dissed my Art. I have been very fortunate to have many fellow-travelers who have plonked what they have posted. I myself have plonked anyone who has posted their vitriolic and/or short-sighted bs about this very important issue. I take this kind of nastiness very personally, as you well know. I will cheerfully STOMP on anyone who fucks with my potties. I'm not amused with any negatively proffered diatribe regarding this most sacred of resources.

Because I'm primarily off-line (no fault of my own) I rely on those fellow-travelers to monitor the air-waves for these seagulls. I truly appreciate the help.

What really burns my biscuits of late is the presentation of some brilliant idealist that believes that a single sign can do the job that I have been doing for 11 years!!!!! I'm not ready emotionally to divulge this latest irritation, but leave it that I wanted to PLONK THE FUCK out of the one who presented it to me.

Can one sign - no matter how well written - do the job that my 400 signs do? I'm not convinced. My project includes signs by Participants like all of you. You know who you are - your signs are out there. To usurp this participatory art project is heinous and offensive. If there is one person who can do better than me, I want to meet that person. I am not convinced that I need "buttressing".

The signs are only the beginning of what I do. You all know what I really do. It's an on-going, constant, attention to all facets of all that is poop in our fair city.

Thank you very much Motsky for all the hard work you have done over the years for the Pottie-Project. You have been stalwart regardless of all conditions.

Sincerely,
RobbiDobbs
Chief Poopervisor of the Pottie-Project

I'm so glad Spectabillis spends his time over on the 3Playa these days...in my mind he made Badger at his worst when we were fighting look like a damn saint. And to think I supported him at one point to be an eplaya moderator. What the fuck was I thinking...must have been the meds or something. And now that I mentioned him I wonder when I'll get the accusations of stalking and the anonymous email remailers sending me filthy homophobic messages and the links to illegal underage porn that were promptly forwarded to law enforcement the last time around....

That being said I still don't have him or anyone else plonked. I figure everyone...at one point or another has something worthwhile to say that I can maybe learn from.

Offering some balance here I've got a few people that instead of plonking I flat out admire and think the world of. AntiM, Fishy, Unjonharley, and Jkisha come to mind...damn good people.

My problem with Spectabillis is that he broke my heart. I still don't like to think about it. *sigh*

My previous post was sort of a cheap shot...and not really fair. People do change...and I'm sure Spectabillis is a good person once you get know him. But when all you see is someone's online postings you can't really get to know them. Of course many have tried to do psychoanalysis via bbs post...and we all know how successful that is.

In any case I wish him well.

I ploinked one or two, then later removed it. Yeah, people change, and sometimes it's good to follow what someone's saying (both from a eplayan and mod aspect).

There are a few who have come close. But even the azzoles get better. There's a couple right now that I'm watching, but more on a moderator basis than a ploinkability basis. One's really treading on this ice... I won't ploink this person (as a mod I can't) but I'm waiting to see if the vitriol continues.

Which is stupid IMO. This is a message board and forum. Not a fracking arena. Sometimes I have to remind myself of that, too!

I wonder how many have ploinked me? THAT is the question...

I probably shouldn't have used the term "broke my heart" because it implies I was "in love" with him.
I was deeply hurt, I had trusted him and I went for my emotional truth, instead of something clearer.

oh fuck no, are you insane!? or im guessing you just dont know what goes on with people when you approach them privately as a mod to correct their behavior. to this day, there still isnt a publicly viewable conflict anywhere that people said anything close to what was said to me in pm's.

so thats really petty fishy, it doesnt take a genius to remember what happens when people like dvd are in that mindset. just look over my posting history of standing up to him in the feedback area, the pattern is pretty fucking obvious. its nothing i can escape now because someone contacted me after he just went and spread his insanity around... again. im not even a mod anymore, but there will always be a huge amount of animosity just because im the person who tried to pull the eplaya back online.

great, this is the thanks i get, thrown under the bus once again.

so you now imply that i go walking around the eplaya with a target taped to my forehead? unfortunately whatever personal issues you have with me are subatomically insignificant to the shit i still have to deal with fishy, so i guess you can rethink that too. because not only are you in absolutely no position to judge, but you simply dont know wtf is up

jesus, what a piece of work.

mods should not plonk people as a basic function of the role sue. i dont think i had that ability pulled, i just errantly trusted mods would know better and why.

I've only plonked one person and it is because every post from that person is not serious, or just mocks other people in the thread. This person never actually adds value to a discussion.

I'm sure I've been plonked. It is one of the dangers of questioning aspects of the event, or seeking change. It could also be residual fall out from my fuck up nearly 3 years ago.

This is the viewpoint I had before I started plonking. I then realized that with my personality it was not useful to read through things that I consider to be absolute bull shit just to find one small gem.

It is working. I like the scenery around here better now that I actively plonk.

Ah, fuck you guys, I thought you were nice because you were nice, not because some mod TOLD you to be nice. Geez I saw through that everybody-gets-a-valentine shit in third grade.

Damn.

You know what? This really upsets me. I do not come here for pseudo-sweetness. Fuck that shit, I drown in that every fucking day.

I came here looking for real people. Yes people-with-manners are real people, and socks can be people too, and I think jkisha's welcomes are hilarious and much-needed PSA's. But motherfuck, really? Y'all said hi to me out of moderator fearitude???

No, no no no no hellno, gotta be some real people on here somewhere.

Fuck.

And yeah I get it: eplaya is not the playa, eplaya is not the playa, eplaya is not the playa... Maybe that where all the real people are.

nah, we're all real ( some are only in *his* head, but they're still real, dammit!)...

Once upon a time, on an island called eplaya, lost souls would be stomped and squished while trying to gain the sandy shores...
One day, a Wise One reminded the inhabitants that they, too, were once in the vasty ocean, seeking a place of respite from the madding crowd; gently suggesting to the rampaging islanders that they allow the lost & seeking to (at least) get onshore, before submitting them to various ritual purifications...

The tribe, in it's newfound wisdom, allows JK to be the first to ritually wash the newbies with his offering of welcum, then the fun begins!!!
