Art James can comment on my blog anytime.

Art James has been a friend on Open and Our for years. 

He chooses to plant subliminally in prose his stances, positions, ideas etc. intimating his thought so that the target is not embarrassed or so that the wrong people don't get it but only his target can infer the message.

Lately the "Lord of the Flies" wannabe's around here are picking on him.

He is worth a dozen of most of the other posters here.

Try picking on me instead.

And just a thought....How many of "Our" denizens would be as offended at the Mappethorpe "Piss Christ" crucifix in a jar of urine as much as they apparently are by innocuous Jabberwockyish Art?

See what I mean?

Let me be clear about two things:

1. I am not trying to drive Arthur from this site, nor am I trying to get people to drive him from their blogs. If I were trying to get Arthur driven from this site, i'd have gone to Lorianne about him myself. God knows I had grounds to. I did not; I attempted to handle this myself. Lorianne has in fact warned him, on my blog, based on what she witnessed.

2. If, on the other hand, anyone implies or states that I banned him from my site for casual or petty reasons, I will argue the point, because that is simply not true. He has harrassed me for a long time, and I did nothing to him to initiate this. Any time I ever deleted him it was in reaction to a lot of crap coming my way, and any time I ever deleted him I told him I was doing so.

I will add another point that is less of an issue to me than the other two:

I agree with Ron Powell's (and others') assessment of him - that his frequent unresponsiveness and lack of concern for the topic of whatever post he comments on is disrespectful, and that he has his own blog available to him as a canvas for such efforts. However, I would not personally have barred him from my blog for that, though I respect the rights of others, such as Zanelle, to do so. 

I will copy most of this comment into two other threads. What I will say about this thread in particular is that if Art had been innocuous and jabberwockyish to me, he would still be welcome on my blog. He did not. Most of the ways he has harrassed me are a matter of public record, but not all. Once he knew I was deleting him, he posted in excess of ten comments on my posts, which I deleted as they showed up. Personally, when I am not welcome on someone's blog, I don't go there.

@kosh..I can't possibly judge between you and wouldn't still more because I did not see these "attacks" that you are citing.  I do know that both of you are two of my faves around here and I don't want to lose either one of my friends.  I don't have that many, or never enough anyway.

And Art...I personally enjoy your work and have never had a problem with you but obviously some around here think differently. 

My suggestion for the furtherance of peace in this online community is to stay off other's blogs who object and go a little lighter on the volume of prose some places where you're welcome.

It's like a musical car horn.  Some like it, some want to sleep.

As for me...toot your heart out!

On this forum as you know I grew used long ago to hatred from the peanut gallery and know how hateful and vicious many here are, but neither of you two fit that description. I think maybe both of you find yourselves tied together for the nonce in a sort of Japanese finger cuff on this issue now and are just due to the contretemps unable to disconnect from the fuss.

I also remember quite vividly another similar event that happened to me on Open where I was assaulted for weeks when others including you Kosh indulged in an orgy of assault on me for simply disassociating myself in a comment on someone's blog that could also simply have been deleted.
So, I'm going to give the same advice now as then.
