Brad, the bad person. [May. 4th, 2002|01:02 pm]

This is long, but funny, so hold on.

So, this girl has been mailing me on & off for weeks, as well as replying to my journal, all with totally bizarre stuff that doesn't have anything to do with anything. Sometimes sending me blurry photos of fields with fingers of the lens, etc. I just don't get it.

Last night she continued posting clueless stuff in my journal which said, essentially, "Oh, you use mod_perl? Here are some links to CPAN, since you're probably interested in Perl and freeware."

One: I know CPAN. I live CPAN. I breathe CPAN.

Two: Hearing the term "freeware" anywhere around Free software pisses me off. Even though the Artistic License is closer to "freeware" than, say, the GPL, it still gets to me. Free software. Two words. Capital F. Libre. Freiheit. Freedom. Not Gratis. Not Kostenlos. We should change English.

So, I had enough of the lunacy. I banned her. I had nothing against her, but it's my journal, and it's for people that either 1) interest me, or 2) are my friends.

whitaker tells me she's been freaking out to him on AIM all day. Then she replies to me: (and of course, to two email addresses, like always, so I get double the bullshit mail)

Subject: uncool how u blocked me!


Brad,

I just want you to know that you really hurt my feelings last night by blocking me in your journal for ABSOLUTELY NO REASON whatsoever! I couldn't write back to your friend in there and just ended up deleting what I had posted. What on earth did I do wrong? All I did was post some links on CPAN! Does that warrant not being allowed to post in a livejournal????? I thought I was being all kind, nice and sweet since livejournal is written in perl, etc. Someone might have found that material to be useful. But you banned me for no reason and hurt my feelings -- you who is interested in culture but have given NO THOUGHT to my geographical location.

I am from NYC -- where the twin towers went down along with 3,500 people dead. And my feelings are very sensitive. On this side of the coast people are very up front about how they interact with other people. Here, it is not acceptable to just silently be "banning" people. We talk out our feelings with each other -- because the next thing we know -- suicide bombers hit planes like the twin towers in passive aggressive behavior not telling us that anything was wrong in the first place!

That is the entire difference between the east and west in this country: the east is up front to the point of what the west consider's to be rude. And the west is so not up front and does sneaky things behind your back (such as not liking you and maybe pretending to like you or blocking you in a livejournal without telling you that you did something wrong.)

Brad -- this behavior -- it will cause problems with people. It might be acceptable behavior out in Seattle. But it has hurt my feelings! I am sorry if I upset you with those CPAN posts. I thought I was doing something nice and sharing.

:( I am really upset. You've really upset some girl out in NYC where those towers went down. And I am a kind, caring, sweet and loving person. What did I do to deserve that? What? It ruined my entire night. I have enough problems with my father having kidney failure and getting blood transfusions from the hospital as it is. But that -- when you did that it made me want to just cry.
You're pyscho. (Was that upfront?)

I'm sorry. I KNOW I can't have read that.

Did she just connect you banning her with 9/11?

The fucking nerve of some people.

OMG dude, mad props.

Reminds me of this one girl from my high school. She got in this horrible car accident, which sucks... but from then on whenever she introduced herself to someone, she told the story of it. Even freakin' army recruiters at school. Heh.

ugh.

It really bothers me that people use the "two towers" excuse for every little thing they possibly can. It affected all of us, but don't use it as an excuse to act like a jackass. Have some respect, you nutbar.

Calling the terror attacks "passive agressive" is just about the dumbest thing I've ever heard.

d---AMN!

I was thinking the same thing. Hijacking 3 planes and flying them into
large structures with the intent to kill many many people, man, that's
just so damn passive.

But what do I know? I am a sneaky passive agressive west coaster.

Can you find out where she is exactly so I can find her and kick her in the shin as hard as I possbily can for having the audacity to use 9/11 and her location as a fucking guilt trip?


What a pathetic excuse for a human.


(No, I really wouldn't kick her. But I'd like to at least tell her off. NYC style, of course. :P)

you're pathetic

Like you have room to talk about this girl being a pathetic excuse for a human. You are a pathetic excuse with your threats of violence and sound like you are in need of a diet and a shrink for sounding psychotic! Your profile says these things:

"If you patronize me, I will want to hunt you down and hurt you.
I'm fat and not very attractive."

With mentions in your profile like:

"I nearly always have something to say, but am too shy to say it unless I know you well."

I doubt you'd have the audacity to tell anyone off "NYC style." (Nice slip in for your location BTW.) If you aren't seeing a psychiatrist for mood stabilizing medicine, you should be seeking help before you hurt someone or yourself. Your rants of kicking people in the shin, hunting down people and hurting them are scarey. You need help. You should be showing empathy to a fellow New Yorker in regards to 911 and not being psychotic. I am sure there are plenty of New Yorkers who would tell you off "New York" style for you being such a jack ass non-empathetic pathetic psycho in your post!

i wonder how many people that you're tired of hearing from will comment about how this girl was psycho for connecting you to the twin towers, when they're almost as psychotic about reading your journal as she seems to have been.

that being said, if she stalks you as thoroughly as she seems to have been, she should've known you'd post that email. everyone knows you ridicule people that you end up having to ban. she's definitely getting her "We'll Have Brad's Lovechild" newsletter revoked over that faux pas.
