Dear List, I'm sorry to post the following but feel that few wish to 'rock the boat' to defend others from unwarranted attacks by Mr. Morris. I, for one, wish that he were saner and feel a little uneasy criticizing someone who appears to be a missing a little in the brain area. Still, it's interesting to note that after I posted that defense of Pam N. (who actually was defending Mr. Morris) not one person rose to defend that fellow's bad attitude and boorishness. In fact, I've received a number of private messages that congratulated me on the messge, not that I was looking for that. ------------------------------- (Hmmm, some quotes: "I saw you post to Pam re: TomCat and agree that TomCat is an ill-tempered buffoon. Pam took it well, I think." "What did you put in your Dr. Pepper to inspire the TomCat rant? Keep up the entertainment!" "LOL, I am sitting here just about literally falling off my chair laughing. :)...TomCat is full of it, will only produce vaporware, and can't handle criticism...I have an incredibly hard time getting by the horrendous spelling, and wacked out grammar, not to mention lack of punctuation and just about anything else most people would require to make one's writing reasonably clear. Smoke and mirrors....that's TomCat to me in a nutshell. About the only thing I found useful from him before I stopped reading his drivel was the windex tip to unclog print heads." "It's amazing that no one actually took that guy to task! Thanks." ------------------------------- Now Pat Street's little missive over grammar (not 'grammer', dear TomCat) and spelling provoked the opposite response than she or anyone in their right mind would have expected. The truth of the matter (not 'mat' or 'matte') is that, besides the little refilling help that he's given on this list, he remains a self-centered, poorly educated person with bad people skills. And, the fact is that most of the information that he's 'discovered' was covered by others. He's just taken things a step further...in more ways than one. He now reveals himself as not the immature boy that many had thought, but a reactionary, bragging, self-important person who has delusions of grandeur. How many times does he constantly have to tell us of the money he's making from his little banners? Every post? How many times do we have to hear what passes for a response but is actually just childish name calling? Pinhead, braindead, etc. I shudder to think that the names are just a substitute for violence since intellectual arguments have no appeal to him. To me this reeks of someone who needs to compensate for his own shortcomings. $20,000 a gallon inks, 1520 does it again...boring, as I said before. I don't begrudge TomCat making money doing anything. I welcome the honest help he's given (although not in the tone given). Personally, I don't believe much of what he says. I guess being fired from his defense job gives him an axe to grind. And he resents when anyone makes a reference to his lack of education. Hey, that never stopped anyone in this country from doing well. I know a lot of creative people who are doing nicely despite other problems...they have talent and that's what matters most. But then again, I don't feel that pushing a button on a computer to print a banner as being that creative unless you have a hand in the design...and I'm not talking about adding clipart. So what if he hates liberals, no problem. My brothers are conservative, albeit more educated than TMorris. So what if he hates the Macintosh. Not a problem. He makes money making banners. More power to him. I wish him the best. And he adds something to this list. Don't want to see him go. I guess that I can defend him on those grounds. But I find defenseless his constant crowing, name-calling and vicious attacks on members of this list including Pam N. and Pat S. What is it, does he hate women also? I guess by saying that he'll now have to compensate with constant revelations of his female conquests, which, one would assume happens with the regularity of his famous printing jobs and cartridge refills. Hmmm, with all the time he spends on the list, in his chat rooms, refilling carts, and printing banners for local sports bars when does he have time for anything else? But remember, he's an 'idea' guy so that makes it ok to demean people with 'ordinary' jobs like the proofreader, businessman, etc. But the truth is that he equates money with arrogance when that need not, in fact, should not be the case. TomCat, I make a lot more money than you do, and live a lot better but that doesn't give me the right to demean others. Au contraire, I believe in the dignity of man, a concept probably foreign to you. Call me a brainless pinhead or some other 'sticks and stones' word. I'll wear it like a badge of honor. I don't need to skulk around, using phony AOL accounts to send vicious private email. If any would like to defend his egotistical nature, his vicious personal attacks, or even his use of the third person to describe himself, please go ahead. Hey, look at what happened when others tried to defend his lack of education...they were attacked by the person they sought to defend. But unlike TC, I do believe in free speech...but it doesn't give immunity to saying what I feel is right. In closing let me just mention that I bear no jealousy towards Mr. Morris for his wonderful good fortune that he reminds us of every day. I know he looks forward to regaining his once proud foothold in the defense department. Good luck to him. I just think that there are a lot of others on the list who have given more freely, with a more open hand ("i give some of my secrets but not all" to paraphrase him) and heart. I flatter myself that some I can call friends. Sadly, I must forsake Mr. Morris' friendship since he doesn't like 'dummies'. my regards, bill gore > From: firstname.lastname@example.org (Epson-Inkjet-Digest) > Reply-To: email@example.com > Date: Fri, 21 Jan 2000 13:12:03 -0600 > To: firstname.lastname@example.org > Subject: Epson-Inkjet-Digest V2000 #71 > > > Date: Fri, 21 Jan 2000 11:56:00 EST > From: TMorris862@aol.com > Subject: Re: grammar and spelling - OT wow like this is really news to anyone! > > A pinhead posted here: > > >> My day job is >> >>> copyeditor/proofreader, >> >>> and believe me, he is not the only or even the worst offender >> >>> when it comes >> >>> to grammar and spelling. >>> > > +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++= > Geee guy your head is soooooo full of grammer and spelling that is all you > are able to see!! > > The big part is the idea that is posted but then again pinheads like you > don't have any of these ( ideas) I guess this is a danger when you have such > a over developed brain like you do?? > > Gee I would trade an idea guy ( like me) any day for a pinhead like you. > Guess what when I was pulling down over $70,000 a year ( 8 years ago) when we > had a real leadership and a defense in this country, I was paid for my Ideas > they were worth a lot more than spelling!
