Ok on Monday night I hold my hands up that I went maybe a bit too far with my alter-ego crap. I agree with Ryans post that I was a total asshole and I am sorry to see that Brenda has left because she is a fellow Irish person.
But that is not the reason she left, before she left she had actually posted a thread asking where I was. Her and Invictus and myself had a bit of banter that got out of hand. Yeah it was my fault, I got way too nasty but I am deff not the only person on this site that does that, it's in the relgion forums everyday.
I am not making excuses for myself, I was a childish prick like Ryan said, if I was the reason Brenda left then Brenda if you are reading please rejoin, you know it was only banter. And yes ok its getting old hat so from now on I shall leave the drama to others.
Anyone else I have offended sorry guys, UW and Wordscribe sorry I let you down guys, sometimes I just can't help being a tosser.
You rock man, still rock! You're one of the true best friends I have here...
Maybe it's just me, but what irony. As of now, you are 20 min old on hubpages, 0 hubs, 0 fans, 1 post.
I agree, completely cowardly. I said what I thought at great risk of falling out with somebody that I actually like, I cant see why this person cannot do the same.
I would never fall out with you mate, you have the balls to say how you feel, I respect that !
i'm not surprised at all. I see that a lot of people don't like BC, but for some reason they're afraid to say so in the open. Really funny all this drama !
But I do like BadCo - quite a lot in fact, its just that I am not a coward and can say what I think. Im not saying that people have to like BadCo, there are probably people that dont like me. But only two genuine people have told me that they dont like me, and I happen to respect them for that. Thats why the keyboard warrior does not command any respect. In fact, BadCo saying those things behind a smokescreen is the ONLY reason that I am dissapointed in him. If BadCo had said those things, I would have been suprised, but at least I couldnt accuse him of being a coward.
How brave to post under an alter-ego just set up 20 minutes ok, log on under your real name and post a reply !
This act is more worn out and unappealing than Granny-Madonna still trying to prance around in the pointy bra.
For once I agree with you TK, not often I do !
In future I am taking Darksides advice, writing Hubs that will actually make me some money and using the Forums much less. I do however know when an act is worn out TK, do you ?
It seems you have decided to be the voice of all of HubPages in declaring it's time to take out the trash. At least BadCo is good enough to admit when he's been wrong and try to make amends. It was an error....period. Maybe he went too far but I have seen a lot of people do that on the forums. I for one would be very unhappy to see BadCo go.
I don't intend to go my friend, I made a major error and in future I shall leave someone else to be the jester on the forums, I shall write more and comment. We all make mistakes, I guess I went too far, thanks !
Please don't tell me you don't get that this is just another of his 'persona'...
Perhaps you should hop on the trashwagon. Sockpuppets like you only make forums (like this) a little more murky. Why don't you employ your energy better - and go and write a hub. I will go and make a request of/for you - to get you started
I would like to think that everyone in here is an adult, and has enough sense to know that, like everything else in life, if you don't like what is being said then goto another forum. If you are offended by something on TV, you change you channel and go on with your day. This is no different. All these forums aren't exactly serious. Get a grip! I have people fan me just to tell me that they want me to change my picture, and that I am a disgrace for having a name like Bloodnlatex. I just ignore them and go on with my day. Getting pissed off about is going to get me nowhere.
I say that BadCo, along with all of is alter-egos, should sail on through these pages as long as they want. I am a fan of his, and enjoy his writing. His banter in the forums is better than most of the crap on the TV. If you find yourself getting offended, then find a forum a bit more fitting.
Monday night was different though my friend, I deliberately set out to insult Cole and Brenda then stood up for her. It was really bang out of order as Cole is a good kid who didn't deserve to be insulted. We are all adults indeed but there is a line and I stepped over it on Monday night.
Cheers for your comment though, I appreciate it.
It's cool to admit that you went too far, and that you shouldn't have gone where you did. I guess I just have a thick skin, stuff like this doesn't get to me. I've worked in shops that is just eight hours of the most brutal ball busting you could ever imagine. So honestly, thank you for you admitting you were wrong and trying to make things right. That says a lot about your character.
No worries BC! As I said, I didn't take it seriously. I know you didn't mean it. I know you'll be fine. So I'll quote a silly bear, "You are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think." Keep writing, we'll be here to read it.
Thanks Cole, that means a lot. I am glad you are online now it gives me a chance to say sorry one on one. It was uncalled for because you have always supported me, so I am sorry Cole !
I have to agree with bloodnlatex. There have been a few times when my blood has boiled in the forums but I post my acid response (only the once have I gotten like this due to rudeness, I detest people being rude and talking down to someone) and never return to that thread. Some people court friction and I think you are one of these. You cannot change who you are, and would you want to? Be mindful that people on here are real and have feelings.
Deborah-Lynn, you know I love you to bits don't you. It's someone like you that makes my Alter write Poems, thank you !
I am who I am...take the good and the BadCO..the ugly side is not me but my bottle of beer..glug glug glug.
Ha ha, yup that would be good could be your starting line. Along with war of the worlds...
A man cannot be comfortable without his own approval. Are you comfortable BC? Much has been said. Words are just that. Action speaks louder than words but not nearly often enough as you have repeatedly pulled this once too many times. I am not so much as dressing down a friend as I am trying to convey a message to him.A round man cannot be expected to fit in a square hole right away. He must have time to modify his shape. Are you willing to modify? You have had much time to think on it, so maybe one persona is enough for the forums, unless you can keep them under control and no sneaky ones like Health Tips. No, you haven't let me down, you have let yourself down, again. So move forward and stop going two steps backwards into the trap that you lay for yourself. No apology necessary friend and I do hope you still consider me one. Peace, Charlie
No to be honest I dislike myself, it's a true saying you can't love others until you learn to love yourself, I don't. Can I modify, yes I can and I will and deff no more sneaky Egos and from now on I am only using this one on the Forums but still using the Tart with the Heart to write my poetry.
As for regarding you as a friend, always CC, as I said in a post I think you more than anyone on here gets me, ( Well Frogdroppings does as well). Take care my friend
Quite a few people get you, and care for you. Just be yourself, as people like you for who you really are. Its only when you try and be something else that people get frustrated. You have one of the best sense of humours on here, you actually do, and one of the kindest hearts. If you dont feel like your not being heard one day, or are in one of those moods where you just feel angry, just press the 'x' at the top.... watch some footy on youtube or have a wank, and come back the next day. I am gutted about arguing with you, think the world of ya, hope you can at least appreciate that I have said what I think and not hidden behind an avatar like the first muppet to reply to this post. I want you to stay around, and PirateGirl to stay around. Be yourself with BadCo, have a laugh with the very likeable PirateGirl, and go and make yourself some cash with people like the Doctor. Living a lie to the search engine traffic is standard, I lie on all of my Amazon sales pages. Theres nothing wrong with that, look at Mark Knowles for christs sake..... according to him he owns almost every consumer good on the planet, does he fuck, but thats where things like that can be seperated. I want BadCo to stay, and I would start a thread asking for you to return if you left; I just want him to be himself..... leaving the other characters out there in Adsense Disneyland.
I know that's guy talk, the equivalent to a girly hug - but my eyes still melted
Ditto. I would definitely be the first to post in this thread of yours Ryan. I've only been in and out of the forums (and hubpages) for the day but I didn't have time to post anything here. But I read the threads you were talking about and I can't really conclude that BC is the reason Brenda left. But then again, regardless of the reason why Brenda left, I just want to say I like you, BC and Brenda and I would really hate any of you to leave for whatever (or whomever is) the reason. I hope Brenda will come back (for good this time) and that BC will stay and write more and more and more. And that's my 2 cents' worth here . Now I'm back to hubbing. Have a rant (I mean hub) to write.
More of the same. How many times have BC apologize, or threatened to leave ? Forum's drama again.For me it's O.K. It makes me laugh. But I don't think it's good for the persons involved.And I think that BC is not doing things right.Treating badly some hubbers, apologize and then begin again... Hye, BC! Something's wrong in your head, mate !
Not sure what to say Badco.....
However, Dear Brenda if you are reading, please put the issue behind you and come back. Think about why you joined HP in the first place.
Don't feel gutted mate, somebody needed to give me that deserved bollocking and I would prefer to get it from someone I have respect for instead of the usual suspects that feed off me when I do wrong.
You were right, I was an ignorant tosser and I did go out of my way to be rude to Cole. I am really annoyed that Brenda left, I like her myself but when the red hits my brain I am walking disaster. So trust me I actually appreciate your bollocking, it's kinda woke me up to what I set out to achieve on here. You will always be a friend to me, no worries on that score !
My world is not going to change if he leaves or not. People come and people go in a forum.There are many interesting 'low profile' hubbers in here that I appreciate a lot more than BC. But even if they want to leave ,it will be o.k. with me. I don't understand all this drama.This is not the real world, and if you're friends with BC ,I'm sure you still can reach him by e-mail.
Some of its funny ,like when alter egos argue n bitch with each others.
Is Cole really Misha?
Other times ,the risk is real people get hurt.
Everyone has said it all (again) even if they are different hubbers.
Hope you guys show me the same love when I have a meltdown
I luv ya badco ,warts n all ya part of the HP furniture ,mind you spose I can say that cuz ya havent insulted me yet
Have a happy an prosperous day fellow hub netstars
Hello stranger! Blimey, you have written 6 hubs since I last checked, whats happened?
Stranger indeed !! I been in an out ,mostly out yep written a few hubs and plan on writing more next week.
Im into checkin out Guru Bob and 30 day training thingy , Eric hooked me up! Sounds ok and the videos just manage to hold my attention long enough ( Ive learned that about myself ,short attention span) or I extract what I want/need quickly and move on.....Oh Im a woman ok!
Ryan hows the no smokin going?
I gotta sugar addiction gawd so much to eat an so little time! Im a work in progress....
Such a smarty professor poo bum ,I missed you too Ryan
Really well said EagleKiwi, my sentiments exactly.
A meltdown is a meltdown it could happen to anyone, maybe most are not in such a public place but it is what it is, it can not be withdrawn, it's yesterdays trash...BC now it's time to clear out the mess and start again.
Hehe. No, definitely not the same person, Misha a 22 year old girl? Eh... I guess I could see that
BC, I could juggle anything in my day: balls, cigar boxes, knives. But I could never juggle alter egos. You do it so well, just have FUN with it. Now, on with the show! Up with the curtain please.
Ok here it is :
Scroll down to where Eric posts about 30 day challenge thingy- I thought initially , yea blah blah blah , but well Ive decided I probably should do the program step by step, and focus.
Usually I pick up bits n pieces from all over and its all great advice ,but in my head it seems to whirr into one big smoothie,so now, Ive decided to concentrate and relearn and let it sink in.
Well thats the theory anyway
I know I gotta brain , and I know I can sell , its being able to deliver it the right way I guess.
Try it Emi
hhhhmmmmmmmmmm, hey it looks good. Maybe I will. Then we can all write stuff and ignore the forums .
Yeaaaa , or for me , I was thinking just having one day (or specific time) to hang out in forums , but mostly get my A into G an write
It seems straight forward so far Emi, youd do great at it too
Hmmm bookmarked it and will try it one of these days. Thanks EK. Off to sleep now. G'night (I seem to be always saying that to you ).
BC, take care, get some rest (I read somewhere you were sick yesterday?). Looking forward to your next hub, regardless of who among your alter-egos will write it. Good night, my friend.
Or maybe it is you, or maybe it is me, or maybe it is cosette. Or maybe I am actually BadCo, and this is all one big game to play with peoples minds. Or maybe you are actually BadCo? or maybe Mark Knowles is Atomswifey? This is the precise reason why people have had enough of alter-egos.
well, that is an excellent point, Ryan, now that i consider all of this further. alter egos - wait - the MISUSE of alter egos - lends itself to unfortunate situations like this and increases a general discomfort and mistrust within the Hubpages community, which is also unfortunate. i myself didn't have all of the facts, as i couldn't read every post and some of what i did read was snipped, so i think the best thing for me to do is to steer clear of discussions like this, unless of course they are about me.
p.s. MarkKnowles as atomswifey? haha that would be the greatest prank of all time
Badco, lots of us got demons that screw with our lives and hold us back. I know that all too well.
So maybe less badco and more Art on the forums. (I really like that picture your daughter took.) You really do have a lot of good stuff to contribute and I look forward to it.
Nelle cheers for that comment, that really means a lot to me you saying that, it really does. I think Art has just as much to give as BadCo, jeeez BadCo is Art, sometimes it's just an Art to being Art I guess, so Art it shall be. Ok the Captain crap will be gone but my humor is still me, I no longer intend to hide behide a pirates pic or another alter-ego, well except when CG writes a poem but it twil just be moi on the forums.
Nelle you are one true lady, oh and congrats on the Hubsteam promotion, really pleased for you, deff well deserved.
I don't think you have the guts to say that face to face! Show yourself. This is sick...
Wow! You guys are still at it over here huh?
BadCo (if that is your real name LOL) you were screwing around and some feelings got hurt. I think everyone realizes that you are sorry and didn't mean to take it as far as it went. I sure that everyone that got hurt will bounce back and accept your appologies. It's not the end of the world. The sun will continue to rise and set. You are a great asset here and we love you. Stop beating yourself up over this.
lol......this thread might become as long as the 'last one to post is a winner'....!
BC, the easiest way to eat crow is while it's still warm.
The colder it gets, the harder it is to swaller. I think you.ve swallerd enough.
garbagetruck mouth it don't take a genius to spot a goat in a flock of sheep. The biggest troublemaker you'll probably ever have to deal with watches you shave his face in the mirror every morning. Now, I have said my peace.
BadCo, as a friend I will say something you don't want to hear (or maybe you do). You need to stop drinking, you know my history with alcoholism, it's not going to solve a damn thing for you, brother. In fact, it makes absolutely EVERYTHING worse. Here you are right now having consequences for overdoing it, wouldn't you say? The problem won't go away on its own. You need to make a decision, do I want to stay miserable or do I want to enjoy life? It's a simple decision, a difficult road, no doubt, but I wouldn't trade my VERY worst sober day for my best day drunk. You would never act that way without the alcohol, I've seen the undeniable correlation. That is not you. What are you going to do to help yourself? Please, do yourself a favor and stay off the forums when you're under the influence. Alter egos aside, that's where the problem lies. What do you think?
Right about everything EXCEPT the "fact that I can't give up drinking." WRONG. Yes, you can, BadCo. You're just not ready yet. You can break the cycle WHEN and only when you're ready. And, I truly hope you make that decision, because I truly wish the best for you. You are a brilliant man and don't deserve this abuse and self-sabbotage. I won't even begin about what you're doing to your health, your weak heart, BadCo. You can only go on for so long. Don't mean to sound depressing, but perhaps you need a reality check. I do care about you, ya know?
I agree, you can give up drink. But it is a big ask, to decide to never have an alcoholic drink again. Thats a big big decision, and one that has to be made at the right time and for the right reasons.
But BadCo, if you want any inspiration, look no further than former Northern Ireland international Phil Mulryne. He pissed his career up the wall at 27/28 in my local pubs..... serious drunkard he was.... and he has now dropped it all to be a Catholic Priest. Not sure what he has to do, but he certainly cant drink for a while..... Anyway, thats just one that you may be able to relate to. Paul McVeigh was his drinking partner, although I hear he is still on the booze a lot. Bleedin Irish, an Irishman not drinking is a little like a Kangeroo not hopping.
I think your problem is you can't stop chugging attention, and you're having another round right now.
I have not been around badco long enough to come to that conclustion. maybe he ows you an appology as well?
Pop over and I will get one of my girlies to do it and you can have a nice cup of tea too. you know a cup of tea will solve any ailment or problem.
OH!!!!! (f only I could. But your in the UK? its pretty far off from here).....thank you sooo much. I like my tea black and strong. And haircuts are magical, arent they? I have wanted to be a hairdresser for ever so long...but I have kids...maybe when I grow up...
