Anonymice

Posting anonymously shows lack of character-- the inability to stand behind one's arguments. It shows a lack of accountability; a failure to take responsibility for one's actions. Anonymity calls into question the motivations of those posting. The motivations behind aggressive statements can never be examined, questioned, or known.

The person posting as "Bryan Guski" knows this-- which is why he became upset at my pointing it out; why he came up with a phony name with which to cloak himself.

Anonymity unloosens the naked, uncontrolled Id of our enemies. We see what they really think, beneath their masks of phoniness. It's an unpleasant sight, one not for the squeamish.

The ULA was formed with public action; with a protest to which all six founding members signed their names. WE KNEW we were risking our literary "careers," what we had of them. It was a bold statement, something of which I'm still proud.

The ULA was founded in contention and has never been meant for the timid.

I know exactly what you mean, my friend.

Over at the UBA, these cowards who fear anything new, edgy and fantastic regularly try to slow our revolution with their quips and meanspirited ramblings. We give 'em a name over at the UBA: anonymonsters. Or anonymoths. Or anonymules. We've got lots of names for them.

Occasionally I've suspected that it was the Carmello Anthonys and Allan Houstons posting, angry that we have shown them for the corrupt, elitist imposters that they are. But I fear that mostly they are simply hangers on, the very couch potatos who are being oppressed by the the NBA's ideology of talent, who are so brainwashed that they can't see the UBA is trying to liberate them.

I try to have pity for these fools that have no character. My only suggestion, King, is to dream of the day the revolution comes, when all those tepid, bourgeios NBA "fans" are crying into their carpets because the basketball on their TV is being played by clumsy, talentless revolutionaries or the books in the stores are all the indistinguishable ramblings of the self-pitying and illiterate. Then the cowardly anonymilqutoasts will have reaped what they've sown.

Seriously, people! Let's see how many of us are out there.

Show of hands. I'm not kidding. I really want to find out.

Who, by this point, is able to see through King's cheap rhetoric, crude tactics, and endless harping on the same few points, and has actually kinda lost faith in him as a leader or, for that matter, a worthy foe?

Because I'm so sick of him it's not even funny. More like it's just sad.

That's one! Anyone else?

To the above:

Now all the anony-mice can come out of their burrows and devour the anony-crickets that gathered, chirping, when no one answered your roll call!

Okay, that was corny and didn't really go anywhere. Sorry! Ahem. Guess i'll go post on the Pigeon Prince blog. Or better yet, the Hotpockets blog!
