You make me sad, I put too much effort in that.



Let me phrase it differently then: you wasted good time on a shitty job.


I'm pretty new to this message board but telling someone they wasted their time and did a "shitty job" seems like an insult. That guy did a lot of work and I would not call it a waste of time. He seems like a dedicated Dune fan who decided to take on a task he enjoyed. And then you tell him it was a waste of time AND a shitty job? Not insulting?


I apologize for not being clear. English is not my native language and I can now see that the sentence I wrote could be interpreted differently from what I intended.

I did not mean to say that Lisan did a shitty job. I meant to say the job itself is not one I would want to do. The job itself stinks.

Lisan wasted precious time because I think its not worth the time spend. McDune is beyond repair.

In no way did I want to insult Lisan.

I'm hearing "The Impossible Dream" playing in the background, Lisan. :shock:

I have heard of only one mistake that doesn’t have an explanation for a careful reader...with an open mind. (And, no, I’m not going to tell you what it is!) —KJA

I don't like every writer's style; for instance, I have never been able to get through Ursula LeGuin, China Mieville, or Iain Banks, all of whom are critical darlings. —KJA

I...had written a bunch of Star Wars and X-Files books...that proved not just that I'm a hack, but that I could write in somebody else's universe... —KJA

I noticed that there are no hard feelings. Sorry if I misunderstood.

People, I'm not only deleting the worst parts, I'm adapting the book, making all the situations fitting well.

I'm not quite sure I'd even read a revised version, but I guess I'm curious too.

The only way to revise these books is with a can of kerosene and a match.
