Brick: What is the victory of a cat on a hot tin roof?
“Maggie the cat: Just staying on it I guess, long as she can.
Cat on a Hot Tin Roof ~ Tennessee Williams
Someone is going around spreading lies about The Voice. He went to FOD. He went to Soul David. He went to twitter. He even went to David’s twitter account. He went everywhere but to me and to The Voice. When it first began back in August, I determined that unless and until the site’s name was used, I would simply ignore it. But bullies don’t go away just because they are ignored. Now he has named us and in that libelous act, maligned the reputation of this site and the marvelous people who visit and post here.
I cannot in good conscience let that go unchallenged.
His issue is with The Voice Unplugged. sigh… He calls it a “secret chat room.” You know, the one Abrra posts an invitation to every Saturday, not just with a comment, but with a huge pic and the caption, “COME JOIN US AT THE VOICE UNPLUGGED” giving the time and a link. The secret chat room with the picture widget on the left sidebar saying, “THE VOICE UNPLUGGED CLICK ON PICTURE BELOW.” Right now it’s Micki’s wonderful photo shop of David as a cowboy. Before it was hot mess hair and before that something else. I forget what. The picture changes from time to time but never the location of the chat room link. If all else fails and you still can’t gain access to it, just ask Blisskasden. He’s always there.
What do we do there? We watch performance videos of David. We chat. We connect. We talk about each others lives. We talk about his voice, his hair, his clothes, his smile, his winsome, charming way of doing every little thing. It’s magic.
He is fascinating and we adore him. Apparently we cannot get enough of him or each other. lol. We also hold Nandito Ako chat each Tuesday night. For the past two years! Not really my thing after a couple of views and not mentioning any names, (Bebe) but there are some here who can rightfully claim Tagalog as their second language.
Blisskasden’s chosen method of attack is to describe in his own words what we do in chat. I can honestly say that I have never read any fan, on any David site or chat room, use such vile phrases or words in reference to David. He does not even claim that these words are anything but his own. I will not repeat them here, but I could, verbatim. For the record, they are on Soul David and FOD. Yet he recently stated on Soul David, “I have never once posted anything that has been disrespectful or hurtful to David, and never will.”
He also made this remarkable statement on SD. “David will be home soon. it’s time to clean up the fan base so David will feel inspired to produce the kind of music that reflects his values.”
By clean up the fan base, I suppose he means to purge it of the older female fans who lack the right to swoon over David. Well, nice try but we are not going anywhere. We are still here. And we will be here long after the kitty standing vigil in the window above is gone and longer still after his return.
One last thing, Bliss. You also stated on Soul David, “I guess my uncle Sidney was right when he told me that you cannot win an argument with a woman by using rational thinking.”
I as well as many other women can match your capacity for rational thought any day of the week and twice on Sundays.
And you can quote me.
