More on the Artless Wonder

Well, well, well. I decided to catch up on one of my (hopelessly behind on reading) RSS feeds tonight, and found myself confronted with a familiar name - the writer with whom I argued so fruitlessly over the last few weeks. Turns out the biggest brouhaha took place only a month before he decided to email me about it.

Here's the post that caught my eye tonight at The Rejecter. That led me to issendai's post here on the same topic, which in turn led me back to the post that started it all.

Frankly, I'd avoided mentioning his name or linking him because despite his insistence that it's not about the publicity, it was painfully obvious that he was after publicity. Having found this now, I've decided it doesn't matter. Reading through this January muddle made me want to do a F_Wesque skewering of his horrible grammar and misspelled words. My favorite was "egology" from this nonsense sentence: "And like blogland the wombwell is probably a weird egology." It reads like a bizarre cross between "ego" and "ecology" and seems oddly appropriate in the context of his refusal to acknowledge any faults in his own work.

And as long as I'm on the subject of people who can't take constructive criticism, I want to point out this which was linked on F_W the other day (yes, I'm reading too much F_W, but they point out some of the funniest links!)

PS - Meika, if you try what you did with Issendai's LJ, I will certainly be screening you, and possibly deleting your posts. Fair warning.

*grin* Then discuss away! I'd love to talk self-publishing and small online presses.

He didn't make it to any of the wank comms as far as I know. Slid under the wankdar, so to speak.

He seems to subscribe to the "if it's incomprehensible, it's deep" method of communication, which usually annoys me immensely.

I'm not sure it's intentional. It's there, yeah, but he doesn't seem capable of being comprehensible. He complains somewhere that people don't want to talk to him, so I suspect the gibberish pours out of him naturally, unstoppably.

Actually, I suspect that he has Aspergers. He has the right flavor of not-getting-it.

Anyways, if you Google for "dolebludger," you can find traces of his pre-revolutionary-author days. Fascinating stuff, in the "How can someone reach this age and still think this way?" sense.

Oooh, an invitation;)

I started to reply here, but it got really long.

"He complains somewhere that people don't want to talk to him, so I suspect the gibberish pours out of him naturally, unstoppably."

That makes me almost feel sorry for him. On the other hand, there's not much I can do for him if he doesn't get anything I say, so I guess the best option is to back away and leave him alone.

I see what you mean about his past writing; it's pretty amazing what came up. I can't imagine trying to deal with that long-term.
