They’re not prostitutes. They are trained by a particular order of entertainers that values ascetic living and chastity, and were rescued from horrific plights by my own graces. The last thing they would desire after the traumas they’ve lived through is to be subjected to your whims.
Why is everyone drunk? »
(Once or twice, when he gets desperate enough.)
That’s the analysis on the twitches. Perfectly normal motions for someone with low blood sugar and running on a sleep deficit. I think I will cut back on the caffeine and substitute a slice of whole wheat toast. Fatigue will have to simply be born without complaint; there are things to be done.
As for the little menace running around my facilities, he remains at large, for the moment, but is of little issue or concern. The most that he’s done is steal some food from the kitchens and harass a pair of attendants. No damage has been done to person or property.
Still, a remnant of the former host, in form or in memory? I can’t accept the notion, as paranoid as it seems, that something may trigger a partial comeback. Zachary was far more wily than I gave him credit for, and if he found a way to save himself or some portion of himself into the directories, then he may ghost back in, or worse, cause serious system failures if the software attempted to recognise two users at once. I won’t allow for that. This ‘Wechnia’ needs to be dealt with.
I think I’ll have the weasel do it. If there’s someone with fewer morals than I, it would be him. Mm, and an excellent opportunity to make overture on my arrival to the stage…
To the ‘Evaluator’:
In advance, whatever such words you have for me will be received without complaint, but will duly be published as proof toward my statements.
From the very start, fans and players — not just ask-blog muns or their friends — have expressed their concern about the way that you presented your blog. You took a standpoint that placed yourself as the be-all-and-end-all of characters and portrayals, set specific, narrow, and biased guidelines on what you believed ask-blogs should be like, and put forth a list of un-solicited blogs that you intended to eviscerate on your cutting-board of what could only in the very broadest sense be considered reviews. As a faceless, nameless figure without any given credentials or community recognition, you took it upon yourself to point out where you felt blogs were going wrong — but no no! That would be in fact giving you more credit where credit was most certainly not due or intended! No, you did not go into this with the intent to help correct errors or support players in the community. You didn’t intend to elevate unknowns who deserved praise, or offer guidance — and you most certainly didn’t ask them if such an ‘evaluation’ were desired. At this point, reading through your ‘evaluations’, it becomes clear that you have put together a list of those whom you intend to verbally rape for your own petty enjoyment in a public arena. Rape, because you foist your opinions without their consent, because you deride and you scorn and you shred apart without any thought toward the person behind the blog, and how they might take it, without any constructive aid there, without their desire or their foreknowledge or their assent. It is unwanted, and yet you continue to ‘provide’.
Self-righteously, you assume that your opinion is the voice of the people, and the word of law. You have ideals for characters, and whenever someone offers a different interpretation, follows a character religiously, or SIMPLY CANNOT PROVIDE TO THE ART LEVEL THAT YOU DEMAND OF THEM, you strike out at them. You have a sliding rule where your demands alter based on blog, and you can point out the one really nice evaluation that you gave as somehow an excuse for shredding others apart. ‘Look,’ you say. ‘I said nice things about one person. Obviously I’m not biased against -everyone-, otherwise -everyone- would have bad reviews.’ No, I’m sorry. That makes you biased in favour of the one person with the good evaluation. Yes, I personally agree that it’s a fantastic ask-blog, but even assuming that the general and absolute consensus was that ‘Always Having Juice’ were the epitome of ask-blogs, it is still unfair, cruel, and biased to hold that as a standard to all other ask blogs. Why? Because there need not be a standard in the first place. There are no barriers to entry, there never have been, there never will be, and you, sir, are certainly not the person to institute them.
All this could have been avoided. The people that have now cemented their hatred for your blog and all that it represents could have had a fairer opinion of you. I myself offered some basic notes on how to present yourself in a manner less acerbic and distasteful - instead of a points system, instead of grading, instead of a bar of ‘good or bad’, just offering support and improvement. If you ‘hate your job’ so much (a job which you yourself felt the need to create and put time into for a body of people that have never wanted your critiques), and are annoyed at the people who constantly complain about you - myself included, of course - then you could have applied even one of those suggestions, and their employment would have netted you perhaps just an iota less of ire. Unfortunately, in your ever-present, all-assuming arrogance, you proceeded forth as if you knew what was best for everyone, and have made yourself the enemy.
Everyone is entitled to their own opinion, and as it’s easy to assume that you are American, you can say that you have the freedom of speech. The internet is a beautiful place where you can express yourself and say what you want. Mm-hmm..
Except there are still rules here. Perhaps you were unaware, but in cases where injury was made to the person behind the blog, America and the U.K. have successfully charged against internet bullying. In cases where injury affects the reputation or the commerce of individuals, you can be charged with libel. Which is to say that the inflammatory remarks that you make can have repercussions in the real world beyond just some hurt feelings, and the guise of internet anonymity doesn’t offer total amnesty and protection against criminal courts. Furthermore, in the consideration of the Sonic ask-blogs and rp-blogs as a community, you can be made aware of this comparison: The internet is a collection of homes and storefronts and communities, and you absolutely have the freedom to roll around in the grass and shout profanities to the world, but those rights end when you set foot in a store. If you decide to steal records and write graffiti on the walls and shit in the trumpets, the owners can and will throw you out. When you aggress against a community as a whole, when you spout negative things against the members, and harass members of the community, they not only can kick you out, but they can report you. ‘The freedom to swing your arm ends at the tip of my nose’. When your expression brings harm to others, it is no longer protected. And it is agreed that your current expression is harmful.
You have, in your last blog, expressed that you have had issues with the blog or the mun in the past. How can you honestly say that you offer a fair and balanced review of their blog without that clouding your judgement? Your personal opinions ramble about abundantly in exactly how much you dislike this blog, and you want people to know it. You cast judgements and give little basis for them, and you use the position you have instated to abuse people on the internet at your whim using a faulty and constantly revised set of ‘standards’ that is little more than a sham stated to represent your biased opinions of the people you’ve set out. Vampiric, you stalk these blogs and search for more victims, often offered up unwittingly in community forms and lists used to find other people that they might like and enjoy and want to play with or follow. Don’t you dare say that you bring publicity to these blogs when, with the exception of one, you have shredded them apart for your own immature enjoyment.
At this point, you’ve proven that you have no interest in changing, and that you’ve steadily gotten worse. With no one objecting in a manner that gives you any interest in shaping up or the fear of tumblr-staff on your head, you’ve revealed harsher and more biased opinions, and again, with the guise of false argument with another evaluator character that you’ve created simply to dispel thought of just you razzing away on the blogs. (If you had three separate moderators whose reviews, suggestions on improvement, and support were written independently and all submitted without influence from one another, perhaps you would get less flack!) At this point, you’ve completely lowered your guard and spat out a vitriolic and unreserved wash of hate against one blog, and at this point, enough is enough. I don’t see any point in asking what you were thinking by doing it, or what you hoped to achieve, or how you thought that could possibly help in any way. You clearly are incapable of seeing beyond yourself. You clearly have no interest in aid. And in this case, you clearly, desperately want to see Sally gone.
So having seen what you’re made of, and what sort of man you are, Evaluator, I cannot hold you in any regard that I might any other adult. The way you act is a man-child who has gotten access to a computer and sees it only as a way to lash out on others. A man-child who does not consider any other viewpoint or interpretation or headcanon or reality outside of his own narrow constraints, and who pitches a tantrum when anyone dare exist outside these and forces him to think, for even one moment, that someone might feel differently than him. You are kind enough to those for whom it may personally benefit you to be associated with, but banish the rest. You create standards of quality on the internet without notice of improvement, of the age of the mun, of their own abilities and styles. You hack down those that you disagree with, and you are little more than a bully when you have personal conflict or vendetta with anyone. You don’t care for how the mun might take any of your criticisms, and under the firm banner of your unmistakable correctness you would never accept the fact that your opinion may be wrong, against the large group’s consensus, or genuinely hurtful without anything there to soften the statement or support. For everything that you say in negative, for everything that you proclaim boldly in direct offense, you offer little in the way of positive comments, and only when you don’t outright detest the person or the blog. You take no offers of aid or suggestions for improvement to act in a more acceptable manner, you care little for how you may be received, and not at all for reputation when you believe that anonymity will take the brunt of it all and leave you pure and blameless. You are incapable of acting in a mature adult manner.
So at this point, there is little you can do to redeem yourself. You, Evaluator, are an asswipe, and a bag of dicks. The community is aware and agrees. The rpers hate you without being affected by your negativity, but the ask-bloggers, innocent as they are, hate you more because you’ve set up your chop-shop. I have nothing but ill-opinion for you now, and you leave a bitter and ghastly taste in my mouth every time that you pitt yourself against someone else as supreme judge.
There is little more to say. I don’t wish to waste any more time on you than this, because block-headedly you’ve proven yourself deaf to anything constructive, a destructive force yourself who cannot see for all the hate and anathema you hold inside.
To the lovely Sonic community, to the fandom, to the rpers, and the ask-bloggers, and everyone that cares about them:
I call for a boycott and ban of this asshole. It’s clear that he had nothing positive to offer, but the longer he continues, the more harm and damage he will leave to the people that we care about. His opinions, of course, do not matter, but the words harm. The words hurt. The words leave people crying, or convince people to leave their blogs, or forever make them think that they have to make up for it, that they aren’t good enough, that because of one person, everyone must secretly feel that way. Removing him doesn’t remove the pain that he has wrought, and it doesn’t remove the hurt, but the longer that he continues, the more pain and hurt will be produced. This ‘Evaluator’ is a disease. He is sign, symptom, and problem all packed into one. He is a tumor. And a tumor that is allowed to grow will choke off and kill our beautiful community.
Please, please, report him. Block him. Ban him. Shut him out. He will not be reasoned with. If you think he continues because he cares for Sonic, that’s like bashing someone at every opportunity because you say that you care enough for them to point it out. It’s abusive. It’s malicious. It must end. And we can be the ones to do it. We can make the community a safe, happy, healthy place where no one need fear of belonging or of being rejected. We have the power as the majority, as the body, as the whole, and we need to excise this.
