The Final Word

I rec'd a request today from schpydurx to unban him from my journal. This was the second request in as many days. Yesterday's request was passed on to the person he wanted to start a conversation with, the reply from which was simply, "Tell him I said, 'EAT ASS.'"

Since its those of you on my FL he wishes to interact with, I thought I would present you with what I hope is a weighted system. The answers on the ends are worth more than the questions toward the middle. If all of you participate (voting limited to those on my FL), I'm hoping we can paint an accurate picture of the climate.

Check all that apply:

Should schpydurx be unbanned?

YES - I love him like a brother!
YES - I've missed the unique perspective he brings to this blog.
YES - He's cute and amusing.
YES - But I reserve the right to spank him mercilessly if he fucks up.
MAYBE - Ask me later.
NO - And never ask me again.
NO - Its much more pleasant and serene without him.
NO - He's a complete cuntface.
NO - The blackmailing stalker needs to DIAF.
NO - Furthermore, I'm thinking of defriending you because you had to ask.

Why don't you just run to him. You can't seem to stop yourself, just go f him already and get it over with. I can't believe you made me read this horse shit.

Like I said yesterday - Tell him I said EAT ASS.

Although I was amused by that answer, he didn't appear to be when I passed it on.

Are you friggin' kidding me with this shit? *eyeroll*
Do you miss the controversy that much? Your post are wonderful without him!

Please relay all the votes to him so he may finally understand the situation clearly! (Doubtful I know.)

Gee, guess which way I voted!

You...think he's cute & amusing? Oh wait...no one's voted that way yet :(

The voting results don't look too good for Tomas so far as he has no votes in the "FOR" column. At the same time, I think the results are ACTUALLY WORSE than the voting states. I'll explain...

As you said, it's a weighted system with the questions at the ends of the poll being worth more than those in the center. I truly believe that "NO - And never ask me again." is a much more adamant response than, "NO - Its much more pleasant and serene without him."

Some people on your list don't want to provide rude and profane responses, for them those are the only two negative votes they are allowed to make, and I truly believe that everyone who voted for, "NO - Its much more pleasant and serene without him." also means "AND DON'T ASK ME AGAIN!"

Either way, I think the poll is a little skewed and isn't going to paint for you a very accurate picture of how everyone feels about what he has done. At the same time, I get the impression that you don't really want an accurate picture anyway. So... why ask?

Its not a perfect system. I tried to make as objective as possible.

I'll try to say this with as much love for him as I can: I think it's a really bad idea, for everyone else and for schpydurx himself, if he continues here.

The first thing we learned in Basic Training was that the needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few.

ehowton, the only reason I didn't pick the last option too is because even my disdain for that vile little creature wouldn't make me defriend someone who entertains me as much as you.

That's very sweet of you to say. But I feel like a big bully now, having seen the results, as if I were a Pharisee lapidating him with the first stone.

Perhaps if we had clowns?

Fool me once, shame on me; fool me twice, shame on you; don't let him fool you a third time. I now have a better understanding of where schpydurx was coming from with respect to certain topics, and I would have had some sympathy for his plight were it not for the fact that he couldn't take a simple "no" for an answer and ended up sinking so low as to attempt to blackmail people who were ostensibly his friends.

Yes, the world can be a cruel place and it can sometimes be hard to deal with matters that hurt, but it is the responsibility of the individual to rise above that. This is clearly not something schpydurx can do. Instead, anything you say or do with him is cataloged for future leverage, as has been evidenced several times already. What kind of "friend" is that?

Your understanding of my internal conflict is well summed.

I think I was the last one to defriend him out of your community. I hung on for a few weeks, because I honestly thought he might humble himself when he realized what he had done. So I kept checking his blog until I say how he was reacting. There our a few possible reactions to what you did. 1. realize you are wrong, apologize, and change. 2. Do not change, retaliate, and continue to blame things on everybody but yourself. Any doubts on which path was taken? If so anybody in your friends list can help you find out.

I gave him the one MAYBE vote so far, but "ask me later" is not in the very near future. He definitely needs more time! Did you honestly think anybody would say Yes? Did you intend to put schpydurx down even more? I hope not?

Honestly, I think you miss having comments to respond to?! but I could be wrong.

What is DIAF? I agree with jaceman he seems wise about this. I am not going to vote however, The answer seems pretty clear to me.

JaceMan generally seems pretty wise when he's talking! *wink, wink*
