I deleted the post of mine that NHNS has embedded above because I shouldn't have said those things about Crystal Geezer. It was going too far. This whole thing has gone too far.
I have no idea why she bears the animosity for me that she does, or for Viva and NHNS, who -despite the very public feud I had with them last year- I genuinely admire as people, both on and off this site.
I can't control what they say about Crystal Geezer or what she says about them; I can only control what I say, and tonight I lost that control and went overboard.
Crystal Geezer is not a friend of mine, nor do I want anything to do with her after the things she has said lately; however I admit that the post I made was inappropriate and deceitful. She never told me about or implied to me that she harbored a physical attraction to NHNS. I made that up because I was extremely angry with her for the things she has been saying, and I wanted to shut her up by attempting to shame her.
It's true that I was, briefly, friendly with her on Facebook, but the subject of a lesbian crush never came up, nor did she ever ask me to intercede on her behalf to NHNS.
I do think it was very wrong of her to call Viva a racist, and to publicize a very unprovable account of her meeting with him and NHNS last year, painting extremely negative portraits of them...and frankly, when she did that, I felt like she had crossed a line and I retaliated without thinking.
The post I made was 100 percent my idea, off the cuff, in anger; Viva and NHNS had nothing to do with it.
I regret letting anger get the best of me, and assuaging someone's character under false pretenses. I think the world of Viva and NHNS but that was the wrong way to defend them.
I think I need to not post anymore, at least for awhile. This whole thing has become very ugly and very unpleasant and while I cannot speak for the other three people involved, I want to let it go and move on.
