Jack - Were YOU not the one that has 'nipped at RICK'S heels since he *tried* to reform his behavior. He HAD stayed out of the gutters for some time before creating this thread. In fact, THIS thread was the ONLY Olney thread active prior to your flotsom.

I'd conclude from all of this that he's already given it up!

BEETLEJUICE! BEETLEJUICE! BEETLEJUICE!

This thread scares me. Do people on the internet get off on impersonating others? Are they trying to live out different identities by switching user names?

I have to say that this is a pretty dark side of the net, some holes in the web. Legally undefined grey areas give you back the responibility for what youīre doing. Refrain from all this bullshit!!

I donīt get how people can be so hostile towards each other..

One thig is important : Written messages on can be interpreted very differently, often an implied meaning gets lost and other things that werenīt on the authors mind get filled in into the message.

So thereīs a lot of errors, a lot of falsely attributing motivations to people who had completely different motivations at the outset. And if you treat somebody wrong because of this she/he (notice the elegant swich in gender order) might start behaving differently because of your respoinses which msut seem strange to the author- a self fulfilling prophecy.

You might want to reread this last sentence (I could probably write it more clearly).

That and other shit. Reading this thread really gives me the chills. It has a David Lynch vibe running through it. If you canīt be sure of the others identity what do you have? Strangers, after all? Ghosts even..hehe

Joe Zabel should make a mystery comic out of this thread.

Mr.Olney just called me frantic about posting some stuff on another thread. Seems Rick Veitch caught up with him and knocked him off again. Can't say I'm not sympathetic...you people don't know him like a bunch of us do.

Anyway... RICK's asking me by telephone to post a question. so here goes: How long is the period and what are the conditions (if any) of being allowed back on Comicon?

Mr. Veitch?

Rick V,

Please close this thread down. It serves no purpose.

Thank you,

Sam Catalino

It seems to me that this thread serves both an informational and cautionary interest. It's not doing any damage and it serves to explain to those coming in late just what has happened here on the board. I don't see how it would serve the greater good of the community at large to close this thread.

I think it should stay open too. Only Olney could lock it down, and since he's banned, he can't really do that now can he.

Sorry Sam, Deal With It. :0

I'm going to leave it open. Theoretically, ORCA might have someone capable of answering some of the questions that have been raised.
