We interrupt my regularly-scheduled “nice guy” blogging to bring you this special report.
Most of you know that I am a pretty happy guy. Upbeat. Optimistic. I don’t like negativity. So when I wrote this entry about Larry Kralj, it wasn’t particularly enjoyable. I wasn’t attacking his character or any good deeds that he does – I was merely citing him as an example of rudeness, incivility, and nastiness in the online world. Read that post carefully – was I mean-spirited or uncivil? I don’t think so. And when I “outed” him as RNH, it wasn’t out of malice – I was merely drawing a straight line between two points that looked identical. And I wasn’t the first to notice the similarity, by the way. Other people had stated that RNH and Larry were one and the same before I ever did.
But this is what greeted me this morning over at GeeGuy’s place in the comments:
Davey boy is retired AF. He is NOT dependent on a job. He’s sucked on the govt. titty for twenty years, and now he’s suckin’ on the govt. retirement titty. And THAT’S why davey, AF retired titty sucker, feels free to do what he does! He can’t argue, so he attacks the source!
Wow. Larry, does it feel good to think of all military personnel as “titty suckers?” Is that what you really think of all Airmen, Soldiers, Sailors, and Marines? Got a beef with me, but you insult the entire US military?
By calling me “Larry Kralj, eco nut”, and sending it all OVER the web, he has shown himself to be a tiny little man. And that’s sad. Why did he do it? I dunno? I never attacked him personally. Apparently because I fight for the things I believe in, and things which MOST people in GF agree with, davey feels comfortable attacking me.
I don’t think that what I did was an “attack” – I did not demean Larry’s political stance, or otherwise call him names. I referred to his incivility and rudeness – hardly “attacks.” And as noted above, I am certainly not the first person to critique his writing style and choice of words. And my use of the term “eco-nut” was a play on Larry’s own “signature line” in his many comments, wherein he refers to himself as an “Eco-Ranger” (whatever that is). And sending something “all OVER the web” is pretty much what blogging and posting on news forums is all about, Larry. You know – like what you did when you called military personnel “titty-suckers.”
And I get DAMN TIRED of anonymouse pukes sending e-mails, letters, etc. to my prinicipal, the shool board, and even the diocese! ( all anonymouse of course!)
I have never sent any letter, e-mails, or any other missives to Larry’s principal, school board, or diocese. It doesn’t surprise me that others have, though.
Bottom line: Larry, I’m done with you. You are no longer welcome to comment on my blog (or Billings Blog, or Dave Budge’s place – see a pattern?). If you want to insult, demean, and belittle people, keep it at the Tribune forums. Until they decide to ban you again, that is. My advice: start your own blog, and quit polluting the rest of the blogosphere.
