You know, I REALLY want my head to stop hurting.

There's this ongoing war in columbus_ga that started because I was banned by the guy that runs the community, jilt.

It's to the point of it being ridiculous and farcical. Then I catch my own userinfo page and see that I have been reinstated, as it were, and am free to post on the page now.

Shared Journal Access: judebennett can post to columbus_ga

Hmmm... "WOLF!" cries the boy.

This guy pacwastaken has made many racially and homophobically derogatory epithets and apparently denies being racist and/or homophobic. Then I get cleared to post on the page again as if it were a peace offering or something. At least that is what I'm discerning from all of this.

It's really sad that these guys are behaving as badly as they are. I looked at Jilt's website and the layout of it is pretty stellar actually. He is clearly talented and I'd venture to say very smart, but ruins it all with this attitude. Pacwastaken I am trying to find at least ONE redeeming thing about, but that is difficult in light of him throwing those things out and then recanting as if it were never meant to be offensive and was acceptable.

I suppose I'm just a little cynical about the whole thing now. Sooner or later we're all bound to run into one another, whether by chance or by default. It might have actually been nice to have exchanged ideas at least once.

Well what do you know!

I'm very happy to see that an olive branch of sorts has been extended to me/us! I'm of the opinion that anyone brave enough to do that HAS to be respected for bravery and decency if nothing else.

I'm looking forward to this, especially with the conditional "No bitching, no whining, no bullshit, no drama*) clauses for meeting. Just NOT in Denny's, please - hell, I'd just as soon meet at the BK Lounge on Wynnton Road as meet there, at least there's some privacy at BK.

* = my own addition

I Have An Idea...

I'm trying to get Jennifer to start an LJ. She can post a link onto her website and her fans can keep up with her goings-on when she's on the road, recording, etc. etc.

I'm going to email Daniel and ask him for a code, I figure he owes me that much if nothing else.

That is, of course, unless someone ELSE has a code thay can email me.

Kevin emailed me, just to say hello and let me know he was thinking about me. Even asked me to give him a call. ::struts, does the happy dance::

In a word, WOOHOO!!
