I guess she puts herself down too, by worshipping Nicky, because she will never be him.
Absolute worship is what I'm talking about, not just a compliment.Right, so, the proper perspective would be to not view everything as necessarily a put-down. Otherwise any positive thing you might say about someone becomes an implicit put-down of somebody else. You'd go mad trying to find a charitable way to say anything at all. The world already has enough people complaining about "micro-aggresions" and what not.

Rifke worships Nicky, and the admirers I have on ignore worship rifke.
i hate those stalkers too. they give the rest of us a bad name. i would way rather die for my idee fixe, like the little mermaid (that would be the ULTIMATE consumption! ) , then kill them. it doesnt make any sense to kill them. that's just gross and not poetic AT ALL.If her fondness for these individuals was "absolute," then Nicky Wire could've never surpassed Neil Codling; Codling would've been the be-all, end-all of male coolness & beauty. But clearly he was fallible. Which is too bad, really. I ended up liking Neil after she posted a video of him with nice posture and a professorial air. He looks better in middle-age, and outside of the tired, obligatory "Suedegear" of black and leather and denim.
Anyway, I think you would have a difficult time proving that someone like Gregor Samsa "worships" rifke in the same vein as rifke "worships" Nicky Wire. You don't see Samsa interjecting praise for rifke on every other thread, or changing his user name to "rifke's poison pen." Which wouldn't be a bad one, actually. I think user names that have the possessive are very good. "Morrissey's left nut," "nicky wire's legs." I was thinking about changing mine to "Amber Heard's John Hinckley," but decided against it for several reasons. One being, I prefer a user name that keeps to a single line. But I do sort of like that Hinckley shot the president. I hate the stalkers who kill their object of obsession. "If I can't have her, nobody can!" Terrible, vainglorious thinking.
That's interesting. How often do they bother you? What do you have against Samsa? He's as opinionated as the worst of us, but he seems a sweet fellow overall. He's always asking to God to bless this, that, and the other person, and his position is one of hope. Born to Harangue shouldn't be a bother, as he stays quiet for long stretches. During these stretches, he makes frequent use of the dislike feature, but I see that as something to be emulated. Minimalism has its efficiency. Does it bother you getting downvotes? Personally, I don't mind it. And yet I'm meek when it comes to giving them. What anyone could possibly have against sea salt, I can't fathom. I remember Carlislebaz once wrote a whole (bad) poem against her, but then, he's Carlislebaz. sea salt is up there with Shandy for wittiest user on here.
two things, aubrey:
1) bun bun isnt an old queen
2) im the grande dame of this place
dont worry, aubbers, i was just fishing for you to say something nice about me, because i felt left out, and you did!!!! of course, your opinion means more than most, because you're smarter than most!! also, about carlislebaz: he's not a masochist, because you have to have some level of sophistication to be a masochist, i think, and baz does not.All I'm trying to say is that what you do here (whatever it is) takes a rare talent. I don't know quite how to classify it. "Grand dame" just doesn't seem right, though you do have a way of bringing people to heel. Just look at how Carlislebaz has been trying recently to smoke the peace pipe with you. After all the grief you've given him! It's fascinating. Part of it is probably that he's a masochist, but another part is probably that you've cast your spell and he genuinely wants your approval. I can see Redacted tucking her tail between her legs and asking for your mercy at some point as well. But it also gives me some respect for your sworn enemies. I'm far from Fake C's fondest admirer, but I do admire him for never throwing in the towel (unless he's permanently quit the forum, in which case I suppose you've won).
Aubrey, I know I am a very tasty morsel and that is why you are offering me up as bait, but please do not associate my name with such a tastelessly obsequious post. Also, it's cruel to get her hopes up like that.
I had not put you on ignore because you are sometimes amusing in the same way a clumsy puppy tries to gain the approval of it's abusive master, but I'm over it.
i believe the correct term is "rent-a-ho". i'm glad you find me funny. that just proves you're smart!! (@Born to Harangue you put that thumb away! you've been slacking and you know it!!)Nothing I type on here is obsequious, although I guess it redounds to rifke's credit that some people do try to flatter her and ingratiate themselves, like you did, and others have done. They probably don't want to be on the receiving end of the acid attacks. I was recently reading an old amateur poetry thread that Carlislebaz had set up, and rifke crashed it by writing poems about Carlislebaz's daughter who, in the poems at least, was a chavette failure of a thing. I was in stitches. But it was also relentless. I almost thought to myself, "poor Carlislebaz."
