It is strange that you think I would or have done anything to ingratiate myself to anyone. I can see that is how you operate with your obsequious insincerity, but it's even stranger that you apply that motive to everyone else. It's like you don't know where you end and other people begin....which is why you are all drawn to each other.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."
You can put me on ignore. My final straw with you was when you shat all over Lisa Marie Presley's memorial thread after giving me humbug for criticizing the royal family upon the death of Queen Elizabeth. There was no consistency in principle. Of course they were both "nepo babies," but one was merely the daughter of a king, while the other was the daughter of the King. Morrissey knew which one to honor.
Actually, of the sad bunch, I do think you have the most potential. Don't waste it. Take care.
