Gregor I can't believe you're still claiming that the points you've repeated in your livejournal, Serious Debate, and in your second article weren't supposed to be taken seriously in your first article. Or that several people didn't call you on your bullshit instantly.
Unless you've been living inside my head, you've no way of knowing my motivations for writing anything until I explain it to you.
so - since you're so sure that you've got my motivations pegged correctly, and I'm clearly trying to back out of making a particular stance heard, despite several fairly solid attempts on my part to get you to understand where I was coming from, I shall have to acquiesce. hopefully it'll shut you up.
you're right. I'm a bad writer who is trying to back out of making a fairly morbid point at the expense of a bunch of people that shouldn't have had fun poked at them.
This is despite the fact that you've known me and my opinions for years, and that the piece I wrote was actually acutely out of character in several key areas, namely the practice of blaming the victims of a natural disaster...
I'm writing this so that you can feel appeased. so that you can know that I'm so ashamed to have been caught out doing something that, for some reason, you knew I would do all along.
I shrink before your towering intellect. I genuflect before the alter of your mighty wisdom.
And yes I think your writing's awful.
awwww... and I was going to write you into the Harry Potter fanfic, Jason...
now you miss out. for being a bad little boy.
what's that? A song?
no... it's a poor, old joke that doesn't deserve to be dragged out of retirement...
...and here I was expecting something original from you...
oh. my mistake. it must be some form of comedic fanfic, where the jokes are , rehashed and recycled, only to emerge with your name on them.what
a great idea!
"Bloody Hell!" exclaimed Ron, as he read Jason's fanfic
"You're in here too, Harry!" exclaimed Hermione.
Harry adjusted his glasses, his lightning shaped scar flashing in the darkness
"JASON IS VOLDEMORT!", shouted Harry.
"Bloody Hell!" exclaimed Ron.
all that could have been yours, Jason... but sadly, t'is never to be.
Jesus - you're turning me into a mean old bastard...
