Another day, another desperate roll of the dice*

I didn't want your readers, or your recommendation, and you know it because we have the same fucking readers you retard! What would be in it for me? Nothing.
This is a very interesting observation. I'm sure that every member of my readership reads (for example) Devil's Kitchen, but it doesn't stop me attributing (in a very cuntry club manner, of course!) when I borrow from or riff off his work. In your mind, this is merely mutual masturbation.

Yet when I fail to show you the exact same courtesy, it is somehow a calamitous slur.

Ah! Perhaps there is something in it for you: common courtesy and an acknowledgement that someone else found your thoughts worth comment or discussion.

But that's just because it's you, of course. For anyone else, it's just a "cuntry club" wankfest of mutual backslapping.

*Tip of the clown wig to Mark Wadsworth for the title idea.

But there's no link! How on earth will we find out who this is? ;-)

Uncle Marvo said...

I don't often read DK. Sometimes I do if someone headsups me.

I have favourite blogs. Yours is one.

Don't get cocky.

If I find out that either of my readers has been reading it, though ...

Whoops - just noticed you weren't on the blogroll. Corrected.

CF, it's a puzzle, isn't it? ;)

Mark Wadsworth said...

I'm lost as to the exact context of all this, but ta for link.

Ah, feeling the spite, lovely stuff.

Obo's main modus operandi: blogger disagrees with Obo on something = Obo feels unrestrained sense of spite and malice = Obo goes onto the internet and executes said spite and malice.

Well, it's not the first time. Holborn's details exposure being a major precedent.

You are actually quite a nasty little piece of work, aren't you Obo?

You can't take any form of criticism without feeling the need to get your own back, whilst twisting the truth into the bargain. Lovely stuff.

Have you only just worked that out Mr Demetriou? It's the reason I adore the Clownie and want to have his children.

"Ah, feeling the spite, lovely stuff."

What spite? I thought that was a remarkably civilly-worded post, myself. You poor frail thing, you.

"Obo's main modus operandi: blogger disagrees with Obo on something = Obo feels unrestrained sense of spite and malice = Obo goes onto the internet and executes said spite and malice."

Oh! So when you do it, it's your fierce sense of independence and integrity. But when I do it, it's spite and malice.

"Well, it's not the first time. Holborn's details exposure being a major precedent."

Yeah, right. I think if you go back and look what was actually written, you'll find the truth of that was rather different. However, since you're always such and astute and critical person, I can't really understand this complete lapse in your normal acumen.

Perhaps it's motivated by malice and spite?

"You are actually quite a nasty little piece of work, aren't you Obo?"

Less of the little, please!

"You can't take any form of criticism without feeling the need to get your own back, whilst twisting the truth into the bargain. Lovely stuff."

Whereas you, when backed into a corner, resort to irrelevant ad hominem attacks as well as dragging irrelevant matters into the discussion. I'm surprised you didn't blame me for the annexation of the Sudentenland.

I'm very disappointed, but not entirely surprised.

I only come for the spite and bile.

Incestuous little world, this blogosphere, innit? Are we windowlickers supposed to want in?!

Ah the whine has increased in pitch and intensity, he is truly the gift that keeps on giving.*

*I use gift in the German sense of the word ;-)


I'd watch it your Clownness, apparently you're in his bad books, thank fuck he isn't a novelist, they really would be bad books ;-)

The following is a communique from the People's Popular Front For The Liberation of Judea (Beersheeba Battalion):

We will remain neutral in this fight, although we are willing to supply surplus AK47s and rocket launchers in return for some popcorn.

Oh - and for a couple of lesbians, and some custard. Thanks.

Communique ends.

...Which is precisely why I regularly read Obo's fantastic blog. I suspect most of his readship is the same.

And precisely why I can say I've never even considered reading yours - despite it's coveted status and Wikio ranking - simply because any comment I've come across from you either here or on OH's blog has just been you whining like a little bitch, and I'm fucked if I can work out what you're whining about.

Sorry, must be very rude for me to say that when we've never spoken before but since I don't appear to be familiar with most of the events/name-calling/rows/tiffs you seem to be almost constantly moaning about I don't have much else to go on I'm afraid.

Dave, they can write some pretty good, thought-provoking stuff - at least, when they're not currently fixated on their not being accepted as full members of the 'country club'.

Many people have accused them of being arrogant and grandiose but at first, I thought that the way that they write sometimes might be a sort of piss-take on some aspect of his/their own personalities. Maybe a little like the way that I sometimes insist jokily to my friends that I'm actually a lesbian trapped inside a man's body (please don't ask - I have no fantasies involving custard though, despite my previous post. Unfortunately.).

Self-awareness and joking about yourself is probably healthy (or so Colin the leprechaun king who likes to steal my socks when I've imbibed too many 'research chemicals' tells me). The way that this blog skirmish keeps cropping up though, suggests that there are definitely some big, jealous egos at work here.

Well, at least The Mossad and OH aren't involved this time. Oh fuck all this, where's that custard?
