Get on with what? I've posted maybe three comments here in a month, and I haven't submitted anything for a while either.

The point is, my friend, that I no longer have the enthusism for posting silly stories and getting wrapped up in inane arguments with a bunch of narcissistic points junkies.

I've moved on and am doing other things. I doubt very much that I'll have the time or the inclination to return. You've got what you strived for - you got rid of the 'gang.'

Did it ever occur to you that the reason people aren't responding to you is that perhaps you don't really have anything worthwhile to say?

Regards

Skoob.

In closing

Sometimes people get one starred/thumbed.

It usually depends on the subject matter. Or maybe the readership just thought the article was crap.

It's just one of the hazards of putting things out for public consumption. You tend to...erm...get a reaction from the public...

Unless of course you disable comments.

Regards

Skoob.

Respect from their colleagues eh? I don't see that. Not on any level. All I see is vindictiveness.

It wasn't me by the way. May I add that I don't know who it was. Nor do I particularly care.

It's funny - I was having a nostalgic look through the forum entries a couple of nights ago. One thing which kept the forum going was spirited debate, and when that dies so does everything else.

I really don't understand all this whining about times gone by, one star bandits, lack of activity, blah blah blah ad nauseum.

I also fail to comprehend how anyone can ever be remotely surprised that when they want everything their own way, and they achieve that - they then go on to lament a lack of lively discussion?

The people who kept this forum buoyant have drifted off into the ether. That's just the way it is. Get over it and get on with it.

JO - not being personal, but you were complaining about a lack of forum input as long ago as 2009. Yet all you ever did for the most part was add superfluous and quite frankly worthless one line comments in pidgin German which nobody ever understood anyway.

Or acronyms where you couldn't even follow the basic rules.

At one point, had somebody asked me if the Acronym thread represented the general mentality of this site, I'd have said that "it's just a bit of fun." And been slightly embarassed.

When the validity of this as a site 'lead in' was questioned, it turned into world war three.

You wanted rid of me - as did others - you have that.

The point being that the loss you're continually banging on about is largely due to your own attitude. It really is not my problem that nobody chooses to respond to your thought provoking and deeply analytical observations.

Regards

Skoob.

The thing with this is that it became obvious that some of us weren't welcome here.

Sensible suggestions prompted some pretty furious responses, and quite frankly it all got a bit wearing. So a bunch of us did what you wanted us to do - go away and leave you alone to do your Acronym stuff and the pandering for points thing.

We're all still around, but we're doing some things individually and other things as a collective. Given your rather untimely personal attack upon myself of a few months ago, can you really blame me? Or others who endured personal attacks?

Sure, we asked questions, and for sure we tried to change the focus of this site, tried to make it something special, but all of that was vehemently rejected in favour of the old ways and of how things used to be.

Don't for God's sake ever complain to me that there's no discussion or repartee going on here - it's what you wanted.

You have it.

As an alternative option - maybe you could sign up to that 'other' site. You'll probably fit right in there.

Regards

Skoob.

You finally have what you strived for. Enjoy.

Dear Spoof Dear Spoof Users

This thread has been closed due to the current Fisting Cliff. However, we'd like to remind you that if it's zany humour and off the wall comments you're looking for - there's always the 'ACRONYMS' thread.

Where basically you just write a stream of meaningless drivel based on the previous word. The advantage of this is that if you have a reasonable vocabulary you can participate, and the results are invariably hysterically funny.

Providing you're a drooling resident of a nursing home.

The originators of this thread apologise for any inconvenience, but they're all busy right now attending a BNP meeting and getting blind drunk whilst they discuss the possible outcome of being sued for plagiarism.

On behalf of the thread stalwarts

You cad!

You obviously cut and copied this story from my Mystery Blonde series and edited it and improved it to make it funny.

That's nothing short of Lesbianism as defined in Section 5, subsection 4 of the official bollocks act.

Paragraph 22 (b) (ii) stroke 1

See you in court. With a slathering jury who always work on a 12:1 ratio.

I don't think I shall sleep for two consecutive nights.

Somebody...anybody!...for God's sake...pass the Acronyms...I'm getting withdrawal here...

I DON'T HAVE TO ANSWER TO YOU! DO YOU HEAR ME?

Dear Spoof,

Going back to what my honourable friend, Mr Danton related previously, I've decided to join him. It isn't a knee jerk reaction, but something I've been mulling over for some time now.

The simple truth is that I've lost the urge to have fun here, because quite frankly, it isn't fun any more. At least not for me. Or, I suspect Clive, and others who are notable by their absence.

Coming here used to be a fun distraction, but it just doesn't seem that way any more. It's just filled with behind the scenes bitching and point grabbing mania, with little regard for writing or humour. What was said to Clive, and what lay behind it was kind of the last straw. That on top of the writer who launched a scathing public and personal attack on myself in a week where my father died, and my router broke down, so that I couldn't even respond. Nice move that matey chum. Fucking impeccable timing.

So it seems fitting to announce my own retirement from Spoofery on Clivey's thread.

Visiting this site ought to be an inspirational and fun experience, but in recent months it's sapped my will to live. It's akin to watching a dear friend suffer a slow, excruciating death. Sorry, that's how I feel at the moment.

On a happier note:

Season's Greetings To All,

Thank You

Goodnight,

Skoob.

Dear Spoof,

May I just take this opportunity to categorically state that my good friend Clive is in no way one of them racialists.

In my experience, Sir Clive finds all forms of racism abhorrent. What he does do, is mercilessly lampoon racist types - in his own inimicable style.

The reality of the situation is that some people are inherently racist, but they don't even see it. These are the people Clive mocks with his comments.

The late, great, Johnny Speight wrote 'Til Death Us Do Part' with an identical message in mind.

Personally speaking, I find this all rather sad.

And I sincerely hope that Clive reconsiders his decision to take his leave.

With a heavy heart,

Skoob.
