I'm only speaking for me here, you may or may not agree with me, you may or may not be offended by some or all of this.
I don't rightly care.
There's a saying about how if everybody thinks you're an arsehole, you're probably doing something right.
I tend to like that saying because if anyone can piss off a wide array of people, it's me. It's often been suggested (*gasp* in real life too!) that if anyone can bring peace to the Middle East, it's me...they'd just have to meet me and be united by their mutual dislike of me.
And I don't mind that. Because most people ascribing to a group are too afraid to be an individual. And groups are such amorphous globs of non-meaning that anyone with three functioning neurons is going to have to disagree with something it 'stands for' at some stage...and I'm sure as fuck not concerned about the people with less than three functioning neurons.
So I'm disliked (I hate the term hater) by two main groups on here...basically...'ye olde MuMMer' types...and...well...pretty much everybody else.
I don't consider myself a "MuMMer" - mainly because it would mean that I was expected to toe the line on the "MuMM rules" which seem to change as often as the wind depending on the 'who' of what's happening rather than the 'what'.
And I don't like that. (And yes, I'm well aware I'm starting too many sentences with 'and', I don't care.)
But there seems to be a commonality amongst those that dislike me (and no this is not rationalisation or excusing, I believe it's valid observation):
- they all have the lives they accuse me of having (no job, no family, no penis...wait...no vagina...hell I dunno which I am at the moment)
- they all lack the testicular fortitude to actually confront or argue with me, but
- they all also think that anybody that blocks THEM is a coward (golly, bit of logical extrapolation there...)
- I've NEVER seen any of them offer any substantial assistance or advice to anyone. Yet the people they despise are the ones that I HAVE seen spend time and emotion helping sometimes complete strangers with their issue.
- they have a selective morality based on who does something, not what was done.
And a few other things.
I'm not here for fu-fame (however you wish to spell it) and nor am I here for levelling, popularity or feeling like I 'belong'.
It's interesting that the few people I do call friends (and who others call my minions) are the only ones with the actual balls to disagree with me, who have no expectation of special treatment and who are the ones that will be putting in the hard yards behind the scenes actually doing something worth a fuck...like giving actual and real advice to someone that needs it, like getting profiles of actual paedophiles deleted and reported to authorities...like giving enough of a fuck to lose sleep over a complete stranger's welfare...or even the idea of it.
I am extremely grateful for those people. When I am tired of fu and everything seedy and pathetic that it represents, it is those people that make me come back. The rest of you can take a flying fuck with a battery-powered cattle-prod.
Yes, this is in response to a blog about horrible MuMMers...which was about about a MuMM...about horrible MuMMers...to bait those horrible MuMMers...and I do love how the 'morality police of fu' was suckered...Yes, it's probably considered to be causing drama.
Please see above. Do not give a fuck. Until you've proven your merit to me, your opinion matters not a fuck to me.
Update: apparently that blog's gone now (probably some hater got to 'em I guess - NOT ME). Fuggit, this still stands. In fact, scratch that...this is not in response to anything at all, it's just me ranting...any resemblance to anything is purely coincidental.
STFU it was NOT mushy.
