Gossip, slander, guile; all with a desire to demean.
An opportunity of sorts has arisen to see the intent and motivation running rampant in blogsville, and is a great learning aid, but unfortunately it is common and no surprise. I will not add to the traffic of this blogger by giving him pr at my expense, but, in further news…
A man on his own site in speaking to the unbelieving choir, needed a few people to boost his ratings, and wrote: ‘Imagine trying to talk to CS or David?’ (Emphasis mine, and David is a believer). Of course the context is the ‘absurdity’ of believers opinions………..To this there is no gripe, as far worse things have been, and will be written, but since I was mentioned, was happy to send a short response:
‘Imagine? In the words of John Lennon: It’s easy if you try……but people have fingers in their ears and cannot hear.’
I thought it was a half way decent observation, drawing on a famous song, and citing the bloggers own words.
This is what the host changed and wrote attached to my avatar, clearly representing me in a way never intended, and a complete stranger would have no clue the comment was amended:
‘Imagine?’ In the words of John Lennon: it’s easy if you try, but I always have fingers in my ears, no wonder I never understand anything ……………..’
This is purposeful and malicious slander. Deleting a comment is one thing, adding a ‘note’ to highlight something is one thing, but to misrepresent a person willfully is kinda stupid, shows character flaws, and is not too smart when one wants to promote a ‘higher intellect.’
I responded of course by asking if this poster believed his readers would not know he changed my words, and again using my avatar, and pretending this came from me, he said this:
‘I am pervert mak. …………….
It has taken me ages to accept this.’
Sooooooo, who in their right mind could possibly believe I said this? I’m guessing even the regular patrons took offense at the egregious liberty taken by casting aspersion on a person who was simply responding in a decent manner.
My guess? This blogger will receive private emails from saner friends, and these comments will disappear. But the point was made, and the damage done, not to me mind you, but to the credibility of the host. In the minds of many, he may not be able to recover from such deep-seated disgrace.
This is a silver lining though, for many will see the true colors of unbelief, and the total unreasonableness of such dark and loud whisperings. ‘Out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks.’
In the meantime, is there a person who could possibly defend such offence? Not the difference of opinion, but the blatant cunning craft of deception. Ebb and flow, plus and minus, agree and disagree, indeed, such is the nature of conversation, but to change 100 per cent the intent of a comment? Not too smart.
To draw attention to a remark by way of a ‘note’ is one thing. I have done it, we all have done it, it is a useful tool in blogging. But to CHANGE a comment intentionally, and to assign quotes, words, or thoughts never given…………oh the wiles and devices, the scheming of men that boasts of mental prowess. Please.
Ye true friends of that great god unbelief, take another look at such devious behavior and ask yourself why you are attracted to this kind of ‘light.’
The insane commenting by the proud members of the unbelieving community have done a great service in shining this ‘light,’ and many would not blame you if you ran from such influence.
C’mon ye friend’s of blogsville, let’s hear some reasonable defense of such antics. Didn’t think so. Certain things cannot be defended.
