Your initial post appeared to be more of a rant than a pleasant request to reach Mr King. You even posted it in a ridiculously large font size in the hope of emphasising your point, which didn't work by the way, whenever I see a post written in such a huge font it reminds me of a spoiled child stamping their feet. Anyhoo, in your subsequent posts--but not all--you have been more pleasant/approachable, and attempted to interact instead of rant. How you act with others here will affect the reactions you receive, either for good or bad. But hey, whatever!
Pee Ess; just to clarify, sarcastic remarks are a big no-no, but rudeness towards people with opinions you don't like is okay? :y:
We've been here before, folks, and what I would like now is to move on. Comments and responses have been made. I don't see a point to continuing with who is ruder than whom. I would like to make sure we can agree that there will be people with different points of view and while debate is welcome, let's all not let it get personal.
Speaking of fonts... actually I'll put it in a new thread.
If I may be totally honest, I have found the language and sexual content at times disconcerting myself. I would never want SK to change that though; then his writing would seem false to his constant readers. We all have varying thresholds of what makes us uncomfortable. You voiced your opinion and it obviously struck a nerve in some people. You did not call for censorship, which some took your post as proposing. It was an honest post. I think your only mistake was in being so forceful as a first time poster; it rubbed some people the wrong way. But as I said before, you have shown yourself to be more than what people first thought you were and have stepped up to the plate to defend and explain yourself. And for that I applaud you.
I don't want to address the OP's remarks directly as Ms. Mod wants us to move on. I will say that whenever I come across a book I do not enjoy (for whatever reason), I put it down and move on to another one. Life is too short to waste on stories that do not reach you or do so in the wrong way. Vote with your wallet and move on. You will be happier. We will be happier. Case closed.
I received a few messages but and responded to one of you but when I went back to try to respond to the other two they weren't there so If I don't respond it's because I lost the message. Whoever welcomed me to the board, thank you. Can anyone tell me why the other messages disappeared?
