(So, does that apology include certain former Dandy artists?) Well, to ne honest, I don't know what it's all about and I've never heard of Mary Beard, but the illusion of anonymity has doubtless caused loads of people to write things that they wouldn't say in the 'real' world. Those who said that cancer was too good for me and accused me of incest (simply for not liking a particular style of 'art') may well be model citizens in their day-to-day lives who do a lot for 'charidee', so you're not alone in having erred. Ironically, some of those who are currently glorying in your apparent 'downfall' have probably been guilty of equally questionable stuff - the difference being that their 'crimes' are still covered by the umbrella of anonimity.So, you're not the Messiah - you're just a very naughty boy. Forgive yourself, do better, and move on. Stick in at your cartooning, but focus on stuff that's accessable to a wider audience, not the underground stuff that was in vougue 30 or 40 years ago.
You've got some front, Turnock. You do realise that everyone sees straight through you don't you? Only a few days ago you were ranting your miserable heart out on various sites (that had yet to kick you off like ALL the others did) and now when the heat is on you turn your back on everyone and suddenly 'see the light', talking about 'trolls' as if you're a million miles removed from the term.You are a truly preposterous human being, how on Earth do you look at yourself in the mirror? If you hated yourself before, you must despise yourself now.You have shown your stupidity yet again by assuming the press were being nice to you because they liked you, when really they were stitching you up good and proper. Making light of concentration camps eh? That's not gonna go down well with your name alongside it when that paper comes out.You are the most vile, hateful human being I have ever come across, repulsive inside and out, and deserve all the bad luck life deals you.You must've pooped your Matalan y-fronts when your old mates were up against the wall, and it really showed, you have shown your true colours in front of the whole country!When will you learn that karma exists, and that is why your life has been such a miserable waste?Silly question, you won't learn, so on goes the cycle of failure/bitterness/bad luck until you eventually pass away in your dinghy Northampton hovel, surrounded by cat faeces and Goodies DVDs.You are like Ebeneezer Scrooge with learning difficulties, a miserable, sad, pitiful loser, and you richly deserve all that life throws at you. PS: You stole that cut out and keep sincere apology idea from Viz, and made it crap.
That's me told.
I can see from the above vitriolic rant that the person who wrote it is overflowing to the brim with the milk of human kindness. So LJT is the most vile, hateful human being you've ever come across, repulsive inside and out? Even if it were true (I can't say it isn't, because you might not know too many people), I think you'd be joint winner in that category. Read what you wrote again, and then tell me you think you sound like a nice person. Not to me, you don't.
Trolling a troll to show that trolling is wrong. I kind of like that, it's irony on a very base level.
Regarding my first comment - I meant 'accessible', not 'accessable'. Oh, the shame.
So from what I can gather of this... A "public figure" was mocked in a tiny little corner of the Internet, just like everyone else in history who's ever been in the public eye in any way. But this particular public figure didn't like being mocked, got her mates to do something about it and ultimately got that tiny little corner of the Internet shut down?Interesting. So everyone should keep their opinion's to themselves and just smile all the time? Alright then.
The really irksome thing is, those in the media have carte blanche to say pretty well what they like, and if people complain, they laugh and say "it's just a joke". If peasants like me voice unpalatable opinions on, as you say, a tiny little corner of the internet, then we obviously mean every last word of it, because, well... the 'little people' are a bunch of potential sex criminals, axe murderers and jealous, frothing loons, right? It's all about power. That's what this whole sorry business comes down to, sadly.
