Mike, are you being serious?  Cause I am, and I'm not bullshitting in any way.  I'm not going to reveal my sources, but I do know from 2 trusted sources that there was some horseshit going on in the thread of my OWC entry.  I also saw it first hand, since I was monitoring the feedback I was getting.

And it has absolutely nothing to do with positive or negative feedback.  The integrity has been thrown out teh window by at least 1 person, and by the looks of things, a few others as well.


I am being serious, and I can't agree or disagree with you because I don't know which script is yours and I can't analyze the thread.

Quoted from Dreamscale
No, Mike, I didn't send it to anyone.  That's the really annoying part.


No, but you have left your name attached to the file. you cannot really be that upset about somebody knowing which script is yours just because your name is on it.

I knew you knew that i knew because I told someone i knew and knew that he would tell you that i knew.*

Do I feel bad? Do I bollocks. I honestly did not want to leave you a good review due to the ridiculous things you have been saying on other threads.

Get over it and stop crying about it. If you are not prepared to take some shit back then you should not be giving it in the first place.


*Cheers btw TommyP, you must of known I knew you were digging for Jeff, yes?

Giles, getting shit back or poor reviews isn't what this is about.  It's about some little A-Hole completely changing their review based on who wrote the script, and then telling others about it so they could also start in on the thrashing.

Don't blame anyone here, either. I was monitoring the thread and saw your review mysteriously disappear and get replaced with a completely opposite review as well as all the other posts that got deleted talking about it being my script and that no one should read it.

Dude, talk about little 13 year old girls?  Wow, you're unreal.  You should be proud of yourself, Gary...it takes a real big man to do that kind of shite.

As they should have been.  I don't think anybody's script should have flags on it telling people not to read it, especially when it's based solely on who wrote it, and in this case it's only alleged because it's an anonymous OWC submission.  I think we had a similar discussion before regarding Sniper's script, no?

No, MIke, I don't think that's quite the same thing at all.  And for whatever similarities you find with that, keep in mind that I sent a PM to the author of said script, apologizing, as well as deleting the comments I had made.  The author accepted my apology, and as far as I know, we have no problems..  And the comments that I did make had absolutely nothing to do with who the author was...it was based on the script itself.

So, Mike, you're still saying that you weren't aware this was going on when it started yesterday evening (night, your time)?  And how did you know that Edmund was Cornetto's script, anyway?

Smells like a bunch of dead carp in here...

Yes, I knew about it all along, and I sent out a slew of PMs telling people to bash your script or not read it at all because you had written it, and then I went into other people's post and changed their reviews, just to make you look bad.  And, I'm being facetious.

I learned that it was Cornetto's script after the fact, when he pm'ed me.  He wanted me to pass on the message that he would be interested in a line by line review, but didn't want to fully out himself as the wriiter in the thread.

Is this going to be a long day of bs and arguing?  Because I'm really not in the mood for it.

Nope, Mike, I'm done with it.  You know how I feel about this, and I know how you feel.  No need to continue it.  My last post on this thread (and no, Giles, I won't be responding to you either when you chime in).

Sorry for all the trouble in here.

Quoted from mcornetto
Ok. I wrote this script.  


Hi, it's good to see the author of the script.

I must say firstly that most of the format was spot on. However you used wrylies incorrectly at times. Two examples:

KIRSH
In the case of teenagers waiting
is the best option. Did you bring
a picture of her?
(Helmut hands it over)
Pretty young thing.


and


HELMUT
Old enough for what?
(no response)
For what! -- I forbid you to see
this boy! He’s no good I tell
you.


Since Helmut was waiting for Bridgette's response the 'no response' should be an action line with Helmut(CONT'D) proceeding. The same goes for the action of Helmut while Kirsh speaks.

In terms of the story, honestly, I didn't get it. The world introduced was much like ours. All logic. So when at the end we find a talking animal, it just didn't fit.  Perhaps you should have introduce something at the beginning to let us know this is a quirky storyworld. Instead, it felt like the talking horse was a fix to a story that had no real ending.

I didn't understand why helmut felt the need to go calling his 17 year old daughter while wearing only a towel. It felt really innapropriate. So much so that I started reading into his motives for not wanting her to have a boyfriend...

I hope you don't take this as an insult. I think you deserve real feedback otherwise you would have only written it for your friends.

Hi JamminGirl,

You may want to go and read the ending again....

LOL! ah yes, I read a talking horse. My bad.
So the non-Aryan boy behind the horse is the secret then? That might've already been evidenced by his name.

It does indeed.

My issues with you go right back, past your OWC reviews and I think you know that. It was that complete balls up of the script club vote where I am 100% that you cheated on the voting in order to push your own agenda. This was my reason for using the information I had to hand to change my review of your script. Call it revenge, or just pure spitefulness, whatever you want to be honest. Childish? Damn right it was. Do I care? No.

What goes around comes around Jeff.

I had hoped you would learn a lesson.


I am going to be gone for a while, I have a feature to write and have a busy time ahead of me. I hope that things will simmer down somewhat with one less disruptive influence around the place, maybe you will learn how to be respectful about other peoples work and this place can go back to being one big happy family again.

Some people cheated on the voting?

If that's true, I'm very disappointed!

I did not cheat in any way on any voting.  I had no reason whatsoever to cheat on anything, and I seriously find this comment unbelievable...especially coming from a guy who at least now admits to changing his review of my OWC because he found it was mine, and then going all out to try and make sure everyone dissed or avoided it.

Giles, what are you basing your accusations on?  This should be interesting.
