Critique Hypocrita

Oh, this is going to be fun.

 

Far from it for me to consider ranting against my criticisms worth of an article but when someone accuses me of fake news and that person of MarkTwain White then hoi boi we just can’t let that one slide.

 

The first thing to keep in mind here is when I suspect someone of doing something or even catch them doing something naughty and write about it the last thing I ever expect them to do is publicly own up to it.

No-one, in the history of the MalQusition has ever admitted to being in the wrong when I find out , even when it was blatantly obvious.

Instead every article is constantly proceeded by days, sometimes weeks, of the accused throwing up as must shit as they possibly can, and of course blaming me for “spreading drama”. The rule of thumb is the more guilty they are, the bigger drama they cause. You may have seen a few examples yourself.

And though I do take corrections seriously (and you are free to scroll back and see the several I’ve made over the years) the person I accused of doing the naughty-naughty standing up and screaming “NU UH!” sadly isn’t proof enough that I was wrong.

So now we’re going to talk about Marktwain White and his decision to compare me to Commander and Chief Donald J Trump.

Now I have a lot to say in regards to the current President of the United States of America, which at this stage is more disappointment than Anger but I’ll leave RL Politics to reality for now.

So let’s start at the top. I feel it’s best we all read his little notice, then you might get a better grasp of the situation at hand.

Earlier today Malicous posted on his Blob that Hollywood Airport charged L$2000 per week for wall vendors. Rich Reynaud called him out on that falsehood and Malicious told Rich he didn’t have time to fact check his claims. As the owner of Hollywood Airport I figured that Mal had at least a modicum of integrity, and that he would post my response to his posted false statement. I was wrong. Here is the post that I sent some time ago and was been ignored will more resent posts were allowed to stand.

“Wow! Hollywood Airport charges L$2000 per week for vendor spaces? I hear that Rich called you out on that error and your response was that you did not have time to fact check your fake truths? So Trump now has a competitor in the lying business. Why am I not surprised?”

— MarkTwain White

Now it may surprise you to learn in this badly edited notice which accuses me of spreading Lies MTW has himself, lied. Oh how ironic.

This notice came out less than an hour after my blog article went live. I was aware Rich had said something to discredit what I claimed were L$2,000 per week vendor slots at Hollywood airport being that he IM’d me, posted publicly in SL Aviation and then commented here on the blog, but I wasn’t able to respond ,as anyone around at the time was probably aware, Fey and Gota of Unity air were causing quite a scene. I’ll talk about THAT seahorse another day.

MTW’s claim that my reply to Rich was that “I don’t have time to fact check my claims” is about as bullshit as it comes.

My findings on this matter actually come from the draft of an article I never published in which I wanted to highlight the difference between ideologies and tactics of SLs more popular Airports and ones that struggled to fill even a single hanger rental. In it I contacted several people who rented spaces at Hollywood, along with several other airports, and found the Average per month for Hollywood was around 2,090 Lindens per week. I assume these were for the larger hangers though I only employed the phrase “vendor space” when I asked so that is what I wrote.

However just so we are clear. I used the world “reportedly” when talking about the rental prices. Language and the type of wording I use is very important. I say ‘reportedly’ because it had been reported to me that this was the case. Outside of contacting MTW or Rich directly I had no way of verifying if or not the people I had interviewed were telling the truth and since both MTW and Rich had provided me with alternate facts during my dealings with them in the past their ability to recollect the exact average of Lindens to Prim cost at Hollywood is taken with a pinch of salt.

So far none of his renters have come forward to back-up MTW’s claim that rental prices are as low as 250L per week. But several of his previous renters have come forward to claim they are in fact, much higher.

Now secondly I would like to talk about this phrase:

“Wow! Hollywood Airport charges L$2000 per week for vendor spaces? I hear that Rich called you out on that error and your response was that you did not have time to fact check your fake truths? So Trump now has a competitor in the lying business. Why am I not surprised?”

Firstly we’ve already covered that this statement is a lie. I gave no reply to Rich even when he posted the same comment multiple times in some vain attempt to get my attention. Secondly at no point did MTW join the conversation at state this. And I invite you to check the entire log to prove I’m not lying. Even if he did the group notice system is just for that, notices, not for you to broadcast your own personal quotes and opinions when you’re being ignored in group chat.

Thirdly,as I said earlier, this notice came out less than an hour after my blog post went live. I was indated with IM’s at the time and as we are probably all aware Fey was making a scene. So exactly what was he expecting me to do? Give him priority?

Well, I’d like to go back and talk about this line:

As the owner of Hollywood Airport I figured that Mal had at least a modicum of integrity, and that he would post my response to his posted false statement.

Because “As the owner of Hollywood Airport” Priority is exactly what MTW thinks I should have given him.

It’s no secret that when it comes to egos Mark’s pretty much up there with the likes of Me and Aeon. His battlecry of “As the owner of Hollywood Airport/Founder of The United Sailing Sims” often proceeds any argument followed by commands of “I can ban you from 200+ sims” if he doesn’t get his way. An argument he repeated so often that in a casual conversation with other members of the USS steerage committee MTW was referred to by his nickname “Mr Banufrom200sims”.

Mark has been allowed one single grace to which very few of us on the Earth will ever have. He has been allowed to write his own history. His ‘official’ version of the Blake Sea history places himself as the hero of his own personal fantasy. Claiming that LL approached him and his then wife Nber with a proposal for the Blake Sea and neglecting to talk about the deeper issues and months of drama which brought about the proposal.

He talks about the Battleship drama of 2012 as if the Blake Sea ran with the blood of the innocents and that he personally did everything he could to resolve the situation at the lackluster of Linden Labs while neglecting to mention it was himself that whipped the sailors into a mass hysteria nor that this was the fourth time he had done this (The Pirates, Ironcladders and an early form of the Aviation Community all suffering similar issues) nor that Linden Labs had threatened to shut the Blake down as a result of MTW’s consistent interference.

Nor that most USS race directors had their powers removed or reduced during his personal handling of a similar situation involving the Ironclad Community nor that Twice in the Blake Sea’s history has MTW called to LL to ban the use of Aircraft in the Blake Sea.

A detailed list of all MTW’s shenanigans would take me a very long time to write and that would just be the ones I know about and even before I’ve gotten to the times both he and Rich tried to impose their “rules” on the Blake Sea and even tried to pay a Coastguard to enforce them. But ultimately this leaves us with the understanding that “As the owner of Hollywood Airport” MTW does not receive any respect from me and does not get priority when it comes to my attention span.

 

But you are right Mark, I should have replied. So here is my reply.

How fucking dare you call me a Liar and a distributor of fake news you hypocritical ridiculous little man.

One thought on “Critique Hypocrita

  1. At the following location there is an available vendor space in the main terminal at Hollywood. http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Santa%20Catalina/222/162/27 The rental price is set to 250L/week for up to 20 prims which is more than enough for any reasonable Casper Vendor. It took approximately one minute to spot the green rental box and get this information. To be fair, if you want a full hangar and are willing to go though the wait to get one, you might well be paying 2k/week or more, but that’s not what you were referring to.

    Yes, you were in error. If you’re going to post the type of content you do, people are going to drag you over the coals for any error you publish no matter how little it matters to the actual focus of the article in question. Your reaction here is rather ridiculous when all it would have taken was an error correction post in the original article. The mistake could have been pointed out to you in a less inflammatory way as well, but that is the price of doing what you’re doing. You wore out the courtesy of getting ‘the benefit of the doubt’ long ago and I think you know it.
