I was hopeful that the forum member in question would simply pull down a personally insulting multi paragraph rant about me on her website and leave it alone, while I was hopeful that the forum member in question would simply pull down a personally insulting multi paragraph rant about me on her website and leave it alone, while at the same time moving forward, she would refrain from using my name on her website at all...... but apparently not --------- This has been an ongoing practice by this individual for many years now. -------------- Apparently my request for a retraction flies in the face of accepted literary practices...... :-) I would clarify that the reason for requesting a retraction (aside from it being my right to do so, if my name is used in a manner publicly which I deem to be inappropriate) is due to my ongoing issues with the individual, and my resulting total lack of interest in even the most remote possibility that my name/research would be associated in any manner with the author of the article. ------- As of 04.12.19, We now have a whole litany of new public statements on her website about me. These new rants alone speak, volumes to the reasons behind my desire to have no association with this member in any manner, in any forum or publication. ---------- Personal insults, and public rants such as these have occurred for several years on her website and elsewhere, and yet this individual is then offended by my publicly expressed desire of wanting to have nothing to do with her when she uses my name in association with an article she wrote...... Apparently, "The evident FACT is that this man has a basic high school education, has no idea about what the literary world traditions and common practices are, and never will." ---------- ROTFLMFAO..... What I absolutely do have is a Masters Degree in "Keyboard Warriors" who try to level insults from a "Safe Place". --------- Why would someone write these kinds of insults and post them publicly for years, and then use the name of the years long "target" of the insults as a "credit" on an article???? Escapes logic......
What also escapes logic is the use of one's "educational" website as a public bashing forum to rant and rave about someone they do not like...... I guess the public credibility of their website is not an issue any longer..... which is likely a good thing. ------ The website in question now contains approx 20 paragraphs addressing what I would have to classify as false and preposterous "edited insinuations" regarding me over the last several years. The true benefit to having a "Safe Place" for this person would seem to be that nothing they say there can be directly or indirectly addressed. That is apparently the only way that one posting false claims can claim to be "right". The absurdity includes a claim "My only choice left was to use my own site and space paid for by me, not a benefactor like Mr. Orkney's" So with no knowledge whatsoever, this individual appears to be claiming that someone other than myself supports my website by paying for the web hosting. I guess there is some truth to the statement "Ignorance is Bliss!". After all, why bother with reality when one can just make up "facts" in their own head? ROTFLMFAO. (Read more)
