I've finally done it. I've finally accepted the fact that to co-exist with Gary Weiss is to suffer, and in accepting the suffering, I have transcended it. I can honestly say that instead of irritating me, I now find joy in Gary's garishness.
Yesterday was perfect. At the risk of mangling yet another proud eastern religious tradition, AldeBaer drank his last glass of sake, strapped on a kami-kaze headband and flew his account straight into the SS Mantanmoreland.
Minutes later, Slim arrives asking for an explanation. But before he can answer, Jayjg sweeps in to block. Always magnanimous, Jay makes it clear that he could have killed the guy, but in his benevolence, AldeBaer is just going to Gulag for a while. Of course, if AldeBaer would kiss the royal ring and self-flagellate for a half-hour or so, the sentence might be made lighter.
And self-flagellate he does. In fact, he gets a little carried away with it, though it appears to have not been enough as his sentence remains unchanged.
By the way, Gary Weiss has had an off-wiki protector assigned to him. The guy has started his own blog just to counter the claims made on Antisocialmedia.net. It's the kind of blog that attempts to find meaning in what I had for breakfast today. Unfortunately for him but fortunately for the rest of us, Gary's paranoia is rubbing off on the guy. I just read where he's certain I was the former WR member Joey, and that because we know he's getting too close to the truth, his IP is intermittently blocked from gathering evidence from this site...just enough to annoy him.
I hereby wager $10 that he'll interpret the above statement as an effort to misdirect and provide further cover for our dastardly plan.
Anyway, bottom line is, if you can manage to find the Zen in Gary Weiss-like paranoid instability backed by SlimVirgin-like despotic wielding of power you've got to follow Gary's crusade against Attack Sites because you have no idea how happy it will make you.
