Maybe you've heard of Simple Abstract Noun. I have. I'm in it. Then briefly wasn't. Then was again.
In other words I got gkicked.
You're probably wondering how one manages to get gkicked from a social blog community guild. Oh it's simple: let's just say the person who made the American side of it is a power-tripping crazy.
I didn't bother to take any screenshots since I'm trusting her to get all drama-whore and post some. Also because unlike someone I like to leave stuff behind me and not go on and on about it.
It's ridiculous. I send some polite tells and gchat messages about how I should be GM and she's lazy and emotional and next thing I can't send any green text anymore. She called me sexist too. That's totally unfounded. I specifically avoided sex-specific terms like "bitch" and went with the neutral "fascist". But does she bother to notice that I'm being reasonable? Clearly no!
Oh yea then after I refuse the first invite because who would want to go back to that, she starts sending me these tells... Let's just say the only one I can repeat is "so you're playing hard to get?" Did I look like I was in Goldshire flagged for ... that?
I did rejoin, but it kinda ruins the fun knowing there's this person with a god complex hovering over me, just waiting to ruin it all. I thought of starting my own guild that wouldn't be ridiculous like that, but damn, is that what being a GM does to a person?
Yea, so there's your Simple Abstract Noun Drama.
Part Two: What Happened on Whiny Post Day?
In one of yesterday's posts, Suicidal Zebra suggested that I make a post of whiny posts. I like the idea a lot. But there's a slight problem: I don't know all the whiny posts. I did try to find them, and found a lot, but I'm sure I missed some.
So I submit this request, or two, to the blogosphereodomeocron:
If you wrote a whiny post, please send me a link. Replace the yahoo in my email with gmail to ensure I get it.
If you didn't write a whiny post, let me remind you that Gevlon and Hitler did not write whiny posts. Do you want to be like them?
Second request: I could probably most easily find this if I knew how to find any page which linked the whiny post day announcement. I don't know how to do that. Would anyone like to point me to a place describing how to do that? Or tell me what it would be called, because "how do I see what pages are linked to the one about whiny post day" returns let's see... Spinks, Larisa, wowblips whatever that is, "Angry for a Reason: 'Whiny' Feminists and comics", "Is Jim "***" Brady a whiny ass titty baby?" and so on.
On a related note, I gave brief thought to moving the day to the last day of March. But then I realized that I shouldn't mess with tradition.
Thank you to everyone who whined.
