    A message to you Byron

    Postby dunepunk » 01 Mar 2009 01:18

    So, following my completely unexplained banning from DN, I sent our friend Byron a little Email, to which I doubt he'll respond:

    Hi Byron.

    Now, given Dune Novels' history of banning those of an OH persuasion, I'm not too surprised that I've been banned. But, nonetheless, if you have any answers/responses to any of the posts that contributed to my banning, I would love to hear them. I mean-- every opinion has to be based on something-- right? So why not tell me why you think the things I said are wrong-- I'm willing to back up my opinions, and if you demonstrate that I was wrong about them, then I'll accept that. However, I really don't think I said anything that isn't defensible. You can contact me at this email account or over at Jacurutu.com if you feel like discussing Dune with anyone whose opinion differs from your own. Otherwise-- well, I guess I'll just keep trying to point out to people all the reasons I don't think they should buy these nuDune/McDune novels. Not that I need to-- it doesn't take much thinkin' to realize that noone is gonna care to read KJA and BH's novels in 10 to 20 years-- but Frank's work will still be around.

    Love always!

    He bans people there for things done here, its possible your patriotic rant on 'tabr and a complaint by certain grudge holding admins got you banned.

    He has not banned me yet for my posts here in Jacurutu.

    Dunepunk, I think it may have something to do with the exchange we had over there in which I wrote this:

    DrunkenDuncan wrote:
    Simon wrote:Huh. Well, allrightythen. August 4th it is!

    That was a considerably shorter wait than anticipated. :lol:


    Considerably indeed. Doesn't seem like too long ago at all, reading on the blog that the first draft was just being completed. Was it October?

    You gotta give Kevin and Brian credit. They may not have been able to match Frank's mastery of prose, but they would definitely beat him in a writing race. I heard it took Frank more than five years to write Dune...


    Your response to this is no longer present over there, so I imagine Byron didn't like it too much, and had you kicked out like the punk you are! I find that if you only use a subtle amount of sarcasm, then Byron either doesn'r get it, or he figures the other pretards won't comprehend it. My post remains, and so does my account...

    But when I try to get banned there some users here get angry with me... ;)

    I say just do what you want to do and if you happen to get banned, there you go. Actually trying to get banned looks a lot like posturing.

    No I was kidding, I always (the few times that I have done it) post my opinions with respect, I do not troll. My comments are OH but I haven't been banned so far.

    I'm sure I'd get banned if I posted any of my "fan" fiction, but seeing as how I almost never even look at that site I see no point in burning that bridge.

    Then again, it would be interesting to see some of Byron's comments...

    I posted there today for the first time in ages! I only read one thread, Jessica's Embarrassing Wind Problem of Dune, and I only did that to annoy Hyppo.

    Looks like you'll have to try harder. Barely fluttered her lips.

    BUT EVERYONE BE SURE ABOUT THIS: SHE HASN'T READ PAUL OF DUNE!

    I'm getting on her tits by PM. It's quite funny, apparently I'm the one who ruined Arrakeen and the reason Edric banned her was because he had a lobotomy while he was away. :lol: I'll probably post the PMs on here after the chat runs its course.
