As I said at the start of the awards, we do them for a laugh every year.. and not to kill yourself over it. As usual, quite a few people made quite a big fuss over it, like the whole last 10 years of everyone's lives depended on it or something.
I know there are alot of people that just have a fuck about themselves on some of the comments, but some of these people do actually take all of this stuff very seriously.
Did anyone read that article, 'are you feeling blue' on page 3 of todays Metro? Sadly I can't link you to it on the Metro website, as the article on the website is completely different from the one in the paper, turning depression into racism and the whole article on its head even though its supposed to be the same one! For anyone that did read it in the paper, check it on the website. The difference is pretty shocking. Anyway for those that didn't see it, it talks about people on an Avatar(the film) forum. About how they wish to live in a world like the one in the film, about how they just can't come back to reality, they feel suicidal, depressed and they hope that when they do die they will go to a place like that. Plus aload of other shit.
People taking things abit too seriously on that forum, and it reminded me of a few people on here......
To the people hating on the ozone and wants post yesterday (yes, can you believe it) shame on you. Total dis-respect. If you got a problem with someone, take it elsewhere, if you got a problem with me, send me an email. Its simple, and thats what I deal in. I've been deleting quite a few posts this week on the blog. Such a big problem with the world today is that there's no respect and too many idiots.
What was it, 60,000 posts or something stupid cleared up from the decoration section because of idiots yappin far too much. Please don't force me to disable the comments on the blog aswel. The reason I give everyone a chance to speak is so that nothing is one sided. Everyone has the chance to share their opinion but when people start talking about bait shit, talking about people's personal shit and all the rest of it, you don't give me much of an option myself.
I've been doing this job for long enough and probably heard and even said everything under the sun. I gave up a very long time ago arguing with people over the internet. Trust me it doesn't get you anywhere at all. But I guess some people aren't trying to actually get anywhere or achieve anything. They just do it for fun. Sadly, this is definently one of many reasons to the lack of respect people have for eachother today, plus many other things. For that person that said the other day 'the internet doesn't count', well, it does, and thats just one fact I've given you there.
I could sit here all day talking, and replying to everything and anything that people chuck at me but sadly for those people with nothing else better to do, well, I do have better things to be doing.
To the people on the ozone/wants post talking some stupid shit about me alerting the police to people painting this weekend, get off your computer and go outside, get abit of fresh air to your head then come and sit back down and try again. For anyone who thinks about something for more than a few seconds will know, I am simply talking about the legal jams and tributes that have already been set up this weekend to pay respect to the 2 fallen writers.
As soon as I mention the word painting, there's someone automatically assuming that I'm talking about some fucking wholetrain mission going down somewhere or something. Hype the fuck down and actually think about what I could be talking about. And if your still too much of a cunt to realize whats going on, ask someone else first, then if worse comes to worst, send me an email.
Most of the things I've said is for the small minority of people that wanna fuck it up for everyone else or maybe just don't think about things properly, or simply just constantly hyped up people through no fault of their own possibly...
I'm not asking for bloody peace and harmony on the internet, just a little decent thought behind things before people start bringing ridiculous shit to the table or gossiping about personal or bait shit.
The majority of people here are fine and make a decent contribution. As most of you will know alot of the shit done on here has been through others feedback, ideas etc. If you have something to say, about something you think is wrong or whatever, voice it properly otherwise we won't get anywhere and believe it or not it will only be you going around in your own little circle of hate.
I know it will always be like this no matter what. Whatever yo do, paint, shag, blog, or comment on, theres always someone that won't be happy. We do try and make things as best we can, and I can honestly say there probably isn't any other forum that has such a dedicated and active team involved. We don't ask for much, just a little decency. And if you are one of those cunts that don't agree with that, well... I wish you all the best in life cos you'll fucking need it!
