Of tigers and clowns
Posted: 11:54:00 AM 2 comments
You would think that from the title, I'd be talking about a circus. Yet, isn't that what Trax in Space has come to recently?

It still seems as though the whole Space Walk ripping deal is still fresh on the minds of many artists. The major concern is over how I named and shamed SW, supposedly without any evidence. Well, I had more evidence than just an image embedded in an mp3 file, and ultimately I got the evidence requested of me that made the accusation undenyable.

So I indirectly called him an "attention whore". Man up, I've used worse language in situations far less serious. People seem to think that I broke some kind of ethical code by using such horrible language while administering a site. Well, there is no code of ethics I get to follow, so expecting me to act a certain way isn't very reasonable, especially when it means something to me.

I really believe that Saurin unintentionally set me up for a confrontation like this, giving me admin privs, but not coming around to support me in situations like this, and then pulling the rug of credibility out from under me by changing the rules altogether at the least opportune time. But that's the hand I've been dealt, and in life you gotta roll with it.

So yah, I get worked up over these things, and I don't apologize over it. That's just not how I roll. If you feel that's just cause to leave the site, you're expecting more of me than I'm willing to give as a volunteer. I'm sure you'll get over it.

Now, if you want to talk about attention whores, look no further than the scores - and I don't exaggerate - of fake artists that have cropped up over the past month or so. Can anyone please tell me what the appeal of using these false avatars to spread mostly crap creations, make meaningless forum posts, and insult and poke fun at other artists, all while claiming you care about the future of the site? There are even two such artists that have volunteered to code. It's embarassing for the site, and I hope that something is eventually done to eliminate the impact of these fools.

Anyway, that's my rant for the month, back to coding.

Oh man I can't believe I am reading this. I've never ran around poking fun of other artists or using false avatars and I'm one of the two artists who volunteered to code (and DID...I split development of TIS2's AAC-plus system with you).

Just because you perhaps didn't like my music or forum posts shouldn't give you the right to stereotype my entire effect on the site and intentions.

I haven't been active on the site minus maybe 1-2 posts per month and haven't posted songs in ages...but still, looking back it pisses me off; do you really still expect hard-working good-willed people to take this crap?


Agreed, there were a lot of people out as attention whores...but stereotyping everyone under the sun as one isn't helping anyone at all (beside, maybe, your ego).

Hey idiot, reading comprehension is necessary in order to reply to my blog posts.

"Can anyone please tell me what the appeal of using these false avatars to spread mostly crap creations, make meaningless forum posts, and insult and poke fun at other artists, all while claiming you care about the future of the site? There are even two such artists that have volunteered to code."

There's the full quote. You make the wild assumption that you're one of the two artists who signed up to help code while using false avatars to make a mockery of the site. No, the two artists who did that were clones and redheat. What made you assume that ANY of this blog post was directed at you, Spectra?

This point invalidates the rest of your rant, so I'm not going to reply to it, other than this line:

"I haven't been active on the site minus maybe 1-2 posts per month and haven't posted songs in ages..."

Well goodonya, I haven't done ANYTHING on the site since September 17th. 2008. I left that deteriorating music community for good when I realized neither its members nor its founder cared for its well-being.

It's been a year. I'm past it. Unless you can prove to me that you can read and have something intelligent to add, don't expect me to post any of your responses. If you really want to know how I feel about Trax in Space now, read The Last Word.
