So Bob was mistaken and alas there is an eplaya cabal then Mr D? and you are it's primary demagogue? All for the sake of marketing your work no less. Dont you feel a little guilty using this methodology to do that? It wouldn't be so bad, or so, frankly, tacky if you had been up front.
Also, you must be very young, younger than I thought, if you think you can go into someones house metaphorically speaking , eat their intellectual food, then steal their silverware and brag about it. In case that's too eliptical for you I am referring to your cross post and its intent to embarrass the authors.
At the risk of sounding like a business man I offer you this from SunTzu
"In this way you have enemies in all those whom you have injured in seizing that principality, and you are not able to keep those friends who put you there because of your not being able to satisfy them in the way they expected, and you cannot take strong measures against them, feeling bound to them. For, although one may be very strong in armed forces, yet in entering a province one has always need of the goodwill of the natives." In other words- a big fat <plonk> on your head.
But--come to think of it-- there is another book that has been mentioned on one of the boards. It's a childrens book called Harriett the Spy I believed aimed right about at your age and grade level. Nice that it came up here as I hadnt thought of it in years. Since you so obviously exhibit the behaviours of a twleve year old perhaps you will be able to take in the lesson of what happened to Harriet when she was found out.
I so detest people who screw others under the auspices that they have been harmed. Not only is it evil. It lacks style. I love all the eplaya for different reasons, but primarily because I was made to feel welcome in much the same way I was at BRC. I dont like it that someone uses me for their marketing scheme.
I often heard the sorrel nag (who always loved me) crying out, ..."Take care of thyself, gentle Yahoo."
