This is a friendship, relationship, companionship, more than companionship, love, soul mate, etc...building site. And yet, there is entirely too much 'disturbing' bickering here. Emphasis on disturbing, because heavy debate can be healthy, informative, rewarding, and has been known to sway seemingly 'set in stone' opinion. Some, on this site, have the demeanor of vicious pit bulls. Indiscriminately biting unsuspecting by standers, tasting the blood and then devouring the meat little by little, eventually eating people alive! In doing so, those who have pertinent data to share (of which most of us really want to read) are afraid to post for fear of repercussion. Some hold back, afraid to say anything, for fear it may be misconstrued. I am guilty of that one, right Olga? Sorry about that...I deleted it because I was not comfortable with it, however I felt so strongly in letting you know that I agreed with you! I knew I should have listened to PHEA44! I am just going to start referring to him as the 'Marksman'! LOL!!! And finally, there are those who don't even bother putting on the waders in order to wade through all the BS to get to the relevant information for which the original blog was posted. One of the most wonderful things about this site is that we come from all over the world...How invaluable is that?!!! We can learn so much regarding our experiences, feelings, relationships, expectations, geography, commonality, etc...etc...etc... from so many different prospective's. This is so Beautiful , don't you agree? There has got to be a another site for tomfoolery.

]quote[I hope you are more qualified to judge my character than to judge my art. ]quote[ my comment was a total compliment to your art...(and i had no doubt about your artistic credentials)... appears you didn't 'get it.' the rest of the post stands as you prove the point of 'ego fragility' by continuing.... which really has nothing to do with your character.... YOU decided to throw it in the mix and raise the stakes.... not buying it.....

Rump. I hope you are more qualified to judge my character than to judge my art. I don't know your qualification for judging art but I do know the qualifications of the jurors of the Sondheim Prize, one being Robert Storr the former curator of painting and drawing at the Museum of Modern Art and now the Dean of the School of Art at Yale. He seems to think that as an artist I worthy of being a semi- finalist for a $25000 cash prize. Perhaps you should give him a call and let him know he made a mistake. I did not get the $25000 which is a pity because I am just about to spend what is left over from my $20000 Welcome Grant in order to go to Rome and Florence to see some art. You will have to forgive me for mentioning something as vulgar as money but your opinion is so important to me that the fragility of my ego compels me to prove my worth to you.

Why the personal attack? Have I insulted you personally? I have disagreed with your opinions but I have not attacked you personally or said anything about your character. So far I have been called bitter by Ayersch and now you think I have a fragile ego which exceeds the fragility of my art. Why not attack my arguments instead of my character?

I did think of starting my own blog but I decided to respond to you here. I have made my point and it has not been refuted so I have no reason to start a new blog. The debate was coming to a conclusion so I thought it better to end it where it began. I was hoping someone would try to make a reasoned argument but apparently no one is willing or able to make a reasoned argument in defense of Ayersch. I did not think you would be able to but I wanted to give you a chance. My response to you here was just a coda. The argument has come to its conclusion. You and Ayersch may not like the assertions here but neither you nor she have made much of an attempt to refute it. Pointing out the faults of others does not refute their arguments. Even a broken clock is right twice a day. Style is no substitute for substance. As far as I am concerned the argument is over. It was never much of an argument. It was always one sided. There is no defense for Ayersch's actions. I have made my point, invited you and Ayersch to disprove it but you have not so I assume you cannot. Argument over. Thanks for your patience BarbiQ.

Exb, why is it that when we post on other blogs people respect? What is missing here? Both of us have more than one blog, do we face problems with other people? NEVER!

True concern? Yeah, I am sure of it. Read My post in Portuguese then maybe we can understand each other. Re: rumplestilskin2010 write: ]quote[ANOTHER WAY OF MOCKING THINGS THAT THIS MAN quote[ it was not mockery but a true concern for what was posted... you jump to conclusions......when you post material that appears to.. ah...!!! and what you have so swiftly deemed as mockery is a passage from the Old Testament that relates the Passover regarding the angel of death..... you are so caught up in your own self pitying posts that you are too blind to see anything of worth...you have had many to reach out to comfort and yet it appears you revel and wallow in that macabre spotlight of offerings thirsting for more...... to say/suggest you need help becomes a redundancy upon itself that appears to become a dung heap of good worth that turns to waste on you... you come here to vilify and cry 'foul'... pathetic was good then as it is now..... go back into your dark corner 'ladybug' and try coming up with another nomme de plume' that can give you peace of mind... ...

The saddest is that arguments and offensive comments on blogs make well-mannered and intelligent people leave this site, or at least make them run away from these blogs. I used to love this site about a year ago and I do hope that some friendly and educated people join it again soon.

Rump, A convincing argument requires proof. I will gladly admit to being wrong if someone can make a convincing argument that Ayersch has been unfairly vilified. She has been vilified here but not unfairly. Based on how she has acted on this site I don't think the conclusions that have been reached here have been unreasonable. I have only seen one argument defending her actions. Ayersch made an argument defending her actions in her first post but her arguments were not very convincing. Her argument was that she was misunderstood, they deserved it,and that she has stopped doing it. Her subsequent arguments have basically been that I biased and that everyone here, except for you, is stupid. You have supported her but you have not yet made an argument defending her. Characterizing what has been said about her as vilification is a statement not an argument. Arguments require proof. If someone can make a convincing argument defending her, I will gladly admit that I am wrong and apologize.
