:lol: :lol: :lol:

The guy is just OBSESSED by this:

"That it is a provable FACT that Tor/McMillan, Kevin J. Anderson, the HPL have conspired for years in an absolutely shameful campaign to remove negative reviews of Dune books at Amazon."

He even uses the exact wording I used at Amazon. This guy is pure, over-the-top looney-tunes.

Such an easy target; it really is starting to seem like picking on the slow kid in class. I might even feel bad if he wasn't such an arrogant, condescending, self-righteous prick.

Hell with him.

Great links, though, SR. Many laughs provided!

Oh absolutely priceless. He says
gormlessfuck wrote:I felt compelled to get into the fray not so much because of any fanatical loyalty to Kevin J. Anderson or Brian Herbert, but because I have a healthy distaste for what I was seeing.
and then goes and blows it by admitting
gormlessfuck wrote:In keeping with the spirit of disclosure, I feel I should tell you that I am a fan of some of Kevin J. Anderson’s books, the new Dune books by the Brian Herbert and Kevin J. Anderson team, and am an active member of Kevin J. Anderson’s international fan club.
What a tool.

"I firmly believe that authors have a right to write, and that readers have the right to read any book that pleases them."

Yes and yes.

And how, exactly, is anyone here doing a single thing to prevent either of those things from happening? What magical powers are we using to prevent these hypothetical readers from reading any damn book they choose?

Readers, in turn have a right to provide constructive criticism to an author in a responsible and respectful manner. If you do not like the books an author writes, you do not have to purchase it or read it.

First sentence: demonstrably untrue. Lots of books have been published by complete assholes. Or morons. Or wife-beaters, thieves, and drunks. Books have been written by murderers, for crying out loud. Just because your name is on a dust-jacket does not guarantee some sort of bizarre right to being addressed in a "responsible and respectful manner." That sort of thing is earned, Brian, not given away to any idiot who has managed to get something published.

Second sentence: preek argument #1.

Letter to Texas Gov. Perry about the 10th Aamendment Resolution
April 14, 2009 – 6:43 pm

Dear Governor Perry:
As one who has taken an oath, registered in Heaven, to uphold and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic, etc., I stand with you and all Texans who value their sacred liberty. Your endorsement of the 10th Amendment resolution is perfectly legal, and in keeping with the finest traditions of the American spirit. God protect and defend you, and may your efforts be crowned with the laurels of a just restoration of our Republic.
Respectfully,
-SSG Conway

Rarely does the wall street journal have anything intelligent to say. (I prefer Investor’s Business Daily, BTW.) The link above is to a telling piece – a former Cato Institute member writes on the eerie way that Ayn Rand’s magnum opus, “Atlas Shrugged,” is morphing from fiction to fact before our eyes. (Cato is the ‘establishment’ libertarian house organ, and is generally not to be trusted. Bill Clinton is a soul mate of theirs – dope, debauchery, greed, and no rules – Boomerism run riot as political ideology.) The GOP President bailing out the excesses of a Democrat Congress and their cronies in the “Aristocracy of Pull” (A Randina term) is so obvious parallel that it cannot be ignored.
I’m no Randian, and no libertarian (I prefer, “Tory Minarchist”), but this is too good to not share. For those who have not waded through 1,100 pages of Rand, I recommend reading it now, so that you have a road map of our near-term future. (I recommend a King James Bible for those seeking a farther horizon…)

Cheers,
-Lloyd A. Conway

after I can manage to stop laughing my ass off at this:

This page is all about me, The Restless Knight.

templar

I am the Restless Knight. It is a moniker that I have used for more than 25 years, going all the way back to my early days when I posted on the dial up BBS systems and played role playing games like D&D in MUD’s prior to the World Wide Web phenomena.

I took on the moniker partly out of my almost fanatical interest in the Templar and medieval history in general and out of my own desire to live my life with the same honor and integrity idealized by the Templar.

Now, after reading the above, I am sure that you are wondering why, oh why, I chose a name like Armies of Chaos for my place on the web. It is simple really. I am fascinated with the concept of chaos. This started when I was young, after reading the Elric of Melnibonè saga by Moorcock. Chaos is everywhere, and in every aspect of our lives. Chaos is the world we live in. In a nutshell, Chaos is all about change.

I have learned to embrace the concept of Chaos, integrating it into a world view that meshes with my own brand of dark humor.

Armies of Chaos is a place where we can express our thoughts and views, a place to let the darkness out of ourselves, so that we can make more room for the light. It is a place to step outside of the box and changing paradigms.

Remember, what we imagine is order is merely the prevailing form of chaos.

watch out, Merritt!!

The Pestless Knight is right on your ass !!

Utter nonsense.

I would respond to the factual mistakes and misrepresentations of your article, but you’d ignore half of them, deliberately misinterpret the other half, and immediately change the topic of dispute if anyone challenged you to back up anything you’d said.

Suffice it to say:
* people who did not like the book should be able to write Amazon reviews saying so.
* people who disagree with others’ Amazon reviews about the book should be able to say so in the comments for that review.
* people should be able to write articles in the Amazon forums about the authors themselves and their writing, rather than just about a specific book.
* If there’s a question of whether a reviewer has been compensated by the author for writing a review, people should be able to challenge them on that.

The actions are not only well within the scope of Amazon’s review and forum systems, but they are the *purpose* of those systems – to give opinions about the books and to discuss the authors.

The fact you don’t like the opinions expressed in those posts does not mean those posts qualify as harrassment, or that they should be censored.

Which site did you post it on? I didn't see it just a while ago on American-Free AmericaNet. (By the way, did I miss a "send reply notifications" checkbox somewhere? The site has sent me two emails now.)

Anyway, just posted this (it went through):

The owner of the website “Armies of Chaos”, Brian Conway, is the same “Restless Knight” that we know and who has been concealing his identity by posting elsewhere under various other names. Whether you have a “Brian Conway” who posts here regularly or not is beyond my caring. I mentioned Restless Knight’s name because he makes a point of mentioning mine while not revealing his own. He is a coward.

I don’t know what most of your posts here are about because I haven’t bothered to look at anything but this thread, and frankly I don’t care.

And if you found the above “mildly insulting”, get me started.

By the way, does most of the general public suffer from mild to severe reading deficits these days? Would explain the supposed sales & popularity of these shit books. :roll:
