Personal Mission Statement

I made the following in a wiki page, but I believe that it applies to myself in more than one issue, so I will post it here:

And when it comes down to it, I will now stop responding to you (Amazing). If I continue to try and work with you, it gets ugly- you can apply fault equally, or not, its the reader's decision. Therefore, I will commence only attempting to speak of the issues that apply only, rather than add responses to personal issues and replies that you have. In all honesty, I should have made this discovery before; I have to thank Conndraka for it. --Karlsbad 01:11, 9 April 2006 (BST)

I made this, as you should read in the text above, in response to Amazing, calling my behavior in responding to him trolling, childish, and parasitic. In all honesty, I should have realized something: that it doesn't matter what I say to any user, they will continue to act how they want. Therefore, I restate again, I will only attempt to comment about issues, rather than making it be about the character of people on the wiki.


Secondly, I am an only overtly passionate about one thing; the deligitimization of alternate lifestyles as uncorrect, undeserving, or unlikely. It is quite the personal topic and I have been known to become screamingly passionate about the subject. While this might place me in one box or another, I only truly accept one label for myself: I am Omnisexual; which means that not only did I have sex with both your Mother and your Father, but they enjoyed it as well.


Third, about me; I write poetry like I lie: the only way you find out about it is because I wanted you to. You could call me a Cowboy, a Viking, a Beatnik, a Lover, a Sinner, a Saint, just don't call me Simple and you'll be fine. My name isn't actually Karl, but it is an effective psuedonym, so I go by Kb if you want to not have to type out seven letters. I consider myself witty and intelligent, and if you disagree, you are obviously wrong. There are truly only three kinds of people in my life: my Guides, my fellow Performers, and my Audience. Unless you know better, don't act like the first and I won't treat you like the last. My favourate quote was by a very spirtual friend of mine: "Hate nothing as if you Feared nothing, and you will Fear Nothing, for you Hate Nothing."

Personal Log

This is for saved conversations that at some points I may like to quote at a latter date

Now, Let Me Tell You What I REALLY Think

Okay, since it is allowed... I hate this BS. As in the whole kit and kabootle. It's wiki-drama that doesn't need to be here. Yes, Amazing whinged about my edit of his line; you know what? I'm beyond that. I am a zombie! I get knocked down, I spend my AP, and stand up again. It doesn't impact me at all.
But this crap, this gets me down. Why the Hell is it here? I doesn't MEAN ANYTHING. If it was voted on AS POLICY, then it would be important, because then it wouldn't fall under the grouping of "user page control" and I would personally NPOV edit all the extranious Bull-Crap throughout it. There shouldn't be an implied thing about Amazing being a troll- if it was an actual credible petition, it would be spelled out, black and white, every single thing that is important, and it wouldn't be Mia's job to do so! She complains about not wanting to work hard- search for links, put it on the page, whatever- and geuss what: IT SHOULDN'T BE! Every single wiki-user should be allowed to add, edit, delete, and reform every single peice of it. But instead, its Mia's party, and we all happen to be invited. Whoopty-do.
And ofcourse, if anyone else acts like it is their party, it is shot down; see the above about Amazing posting about this on the main page. Of course, Mia herself linked to it already, but because it wasn't HER INVITATION, it is shot down and used as evidence of how terrible Amazing is. God, look at the title of this page! Rather than trying to put this on a public page, it is put in Shining Red Letters that its all about Mia v Amazing- like some kind of G'Dmn boxing match. And honey, its not about you. People should realize that they are acting like sheep to all this drama; and the only person who gets the ultimate credit for it is the person with their name first- a Lennon/McCartney1 song, entitled "Now I'm E-Famous."
But in all actuality, I know that I shouldn't attribute to malicousness what I can consider to be incompitance. Maybe Mia didn't read on the desensitized forums that "people across all the UD chat rooms are talking about Amazing", and maybe she only didn't consider trusting the userbase because she didn't realize that she is capable of adding to something without it being on her user page. Maybe she didn't realize that since this is on a User Page, even the most stringent enforcement of the "Anti-Flaming" rules that are being voted upon wouldn't impact her.
Realize this; the only people who should care about Amazing is himself, his group, and his cult of PK'ers. We're ZOMBIES! We don't need to worry about what survivors do. They shoot us, we eat their faces, revives all around, the game goes on. Anyone too concerned about this should really realize that this is a Survivor-only conflict; zeds need not apply. This is why I question Mia's Zed State; I think she is a Trenchcoat with Anklegrab, except instead of 25 fully-loaded shotguns, she's armed with a bagfull of little drama-games and "I'm too silly to be threatening" nattering, chattering manner. Shes a Survivor who happens to have their rot on the outside, both in the way of the physical and in her personallity.
1 For those who are young or uniformed, Lennon/McCartney is the writing duo for most of the Beattles, and I personally think that Lennon wasn't as talented- which is a POV, of course- and therefore my comparison is that the real person with the Charisma is the second person, not the first person named, who will usually get the credit. --Karlsbad 05:10, 23 April 2006 (BST)

holy shit. -- Amazing 05:16, 23 April 2006 (BST)
ditto. -Wyndallin 05:19, 23 April 2006 (BST)
seconded. --Cyberbob240CDF - Arb - W! 05:37, 23 April 2006 (BST)
I agree with 'Zing here. That was a lot. I only have a few bits to state. First, it's in my user space so I can more readilly control trolling. Second, I approved of Amazing's link on the main page. Hel, it'd be more fair. Someone else removed it. I don't remember what the other points were. --SirensT RR 05:18, 23 April 2006 (BST)
Mine was a happy/stunned "holy shit", just to be honest. -- Amazing 05:22, 23 April 2006 (BST)
Yeah, but if it was in a public space, then it wouldn't be about trolling YOU, it would be about the PETITON, and you would again be forgotten. But ofcourse, again, you prove with your reply that I shouldn't attribute maliciousness with incompitence: its not like you are attempting to be mod again, and its not like most of the points about you that were made before this petition are that you, and I paraphrase, just haven't proven that you can do anything at all. And it is not like most of the support you are receiving now happened to happen after you created this page. And maybe you simply, tee-hee, forgot to defend Amazing's Main page advertisement.
You don't want to reply to something here, defend yourself, actually stand for something? Okay, go ahead, its your party- but don't expect someone to think highly of you because of that like they do when you say that you are pregnent, or are drinking alcohol, or both. --Karlsbad 05:37, 23 April 2006 (BST)
I bitched Nubis out in a chatroom for deleting that, thank you very much. And Abort/Retry/Fail is entirely for feed back so I know what I need to improve on. If you don't think I'd be a good mod, go there and SAY SO! I'm not going to defend why this page is in my user space any further. Karl, I know you're tired of this stuff, you said so yourself. So please stop attacking me and try talking to me in a civil way. Lord knows if Amazing had tried that instead of instantly taking advantage of this spot, I might have changed my mind. --SirensT RR 05:52, 23 April 2006 (BST)
You "bitched" about it so much in the chat room you immediately did something about it on the wiki, did you? But again with the malicious versus incompitent debate: Maybe I shouldn't consider the former, because its not like I can be certain that you would be more inclined to set yourself as the Queen Bee of the Chat Room instead of actually contributing to the wiki, that you might simply have forgoten how to go to a different window in your computer to get to a different program, because working with computers is so hard, tee-hee.
The only thing you could improve on in your quest/campaign/sheep-herding to become a mod, to me, is by making me forget that you admited to lying to Amazing in chat because you wanted to "get him". Though maybe you thought, 'tee-hee, that ofcourse it was impossible to speak to the Great Beast Amazing honestly, and simply went about it in the easiest way you knew how.
And don't assume my name is Karl, because it isn't. You don't know me, don't act like you and I share some kind of pet-name relationship. I said I was tired of all this wiki-drama, but your constant act of "I'm not causing this, I didn't know that, I'm too busy, tee-freaking-hee" is a mighty fine expresso. Talking with you is like attempting to nail a gooey-jello monster to a wall; maybe the "jiggly-jiggly" bit is an accident, or maybe its the only way it knows how to respond. Civility is lost when the other party acts too jiggly to be considered an equal.
Hey, you think that was too long, you want civility? Okay, how about you respond to my assertion that you have nothing to contribute beyond drama. Act like you didn't create a page about a user you've said that you are attempting to ignore, with the sub-heading "Space for Trolling" and are, tee-hee, surprised that people are using this to explain EXACTLY what they think of your actions. --Karlsbad 06:14, 23 April 2006 (BST)


Amazing admits he should calm down

I mean, right above your post on my Talk page, you've got Zaruthistra saying mods don't look at the Arbitration page or that it's not his job, to which I point out he's listed as an Arbitrator. It's kinda selective service, and it's been that way since I first joined the Wiki. -- Amazing 03:44, 7 April 2006 (BST)

Wise woman say, the quickest way to annoy your enemies is not to lose your head when they try to make you angry. *nodnod* Realize that they're being just as stupid as they accuse, and laugh inwardly. --Mia Kristos 04:14, 7 April 2006 (BST)
Yeah, I've tried that. "Keeping my head" just lead to free-for-all attacking and my virtual tongue being bitten in half. This way I at least get everything out, which really just amounts to self-service, I guess. -- Amazing 04:44, 7 April 2006 (BST)
But your presence brings down the tone of the wiki. Just because you FEEL angry doesn't mean you get to chat on the wiki about it. Take your sense of entilement somewhere that will give you the time of day. --Karlsbad 05:11, 7 April 2006 (BST)
Well, I see your point of view. I guess all I can say is that you feel entitled to voice your opinion about me.. and I guess I feel the same way about those other people. Hopefully you can see where I'm coming from on this. If not, that's okay too. -- Amazing 05:14, 7 April 2006 (BST)
But see, when I say something, I don't cause drama. I've learned how to communicate civially, so therefore my ability to chat on the wiki doesn't cause trouble. Until you learn that, you should not continue to act like this is your bitching playground.--Karlsbad 05:17, 7 April 2006 (BST)
Well.. See, the way I'm looking at it, Person A is angry, Person B is responding to Person A and calling him names and antagonizing. Can it truly be said that Person B is not causing trouble by purposefully inflaming an already tender situation? I'm not placing any blame or what have you, I'm just probing to see what your opinion is on this. Is the hypothetical Person B causing no trouble? -- Amazing 05:20, 7 April 2006 (BST)
Well, my point is is that the wiki isn't a place for Person A or Person B to duke it out. If a person, period, responds, they are in the wrong. The wiki isn't the place for this. --Karlsbad 05:29, 7 April 2006 (BST) +
Good point. I guess a lot of us have acted foolish. I've offered people a clean slate in the past (even the ones I argue with the most, if you can believe it!) and look forward to doing just that now. :) -- Amazing 05:36, 7 April 2006 (BST)
I was about to go off about smearing crud on my talk page, and then I noticed you were getting along. I'm...shocked. Rather pleased too, with the both of you. --Mia Kristos 06:43, 7 April 2006 (BST)
I'M ON DOPE! .... Kidding. :) -- Amazing Mod SGP UDPD McZed's™ 06:45, 7 April 2006 (BST)
