With a leading question designed to shove your right to have an opinion on what others should be doing with their body down everyone's throat and then claim to have been "just asking a simple question"?
What do you religionists think? Is this what god wanted you to do instead of living by example rather than preaching "do as I say, not as I do"?
Actually you're supposed to do both. Live and talk. I prefer the other, live and kill.
Ah - you are a christian then? Nice fake scarf by the way. A little effeminate, but what they hey! Takes all sorts.
Scarves worn in that fashion tends to exude power and mystery---sort of like religious zealots do. It the old west movies all the bad guys wore them. What do you think?
effeminate! What're you like? 100. Dude, you need to stay in touch in modern trends, man. Your time is gone.
LOL - Trust me - where I live, you walk down the street wearing that - I doubt you make it to the corner.
"Tis a nice fake tho - what did you pay for it?
I'm sure I can make it down where you live. Trust me, old man. As for the price, That's about $22. Give or take. I'm into designer stuff really. I never get knock offs. I'm kinda loaded. Not all Africans wear knock-offs you know. I know its way beyond you. But Just watch any good rap video - you'll get it, old man.
LOL - Yeah sure. A typical Louis Vuitton scarf will cost about $500. I know because I just bought my wife a $1200 purse from the Paris store.
Fakes - $22 sounds about right.
And it ain't me you understand - a black man wearing a mask is not going to finish walking down the street in the South of France.
You can get a TYPICAL LUIS V for just that amount I told you in any designer boutique. Of course there abides the very very extravagant ones. But As much as I'm into Luis V and all I wouldn't pay above 50 for a scarf. But the jacket. That's a different story though. And like I said, I'm pretty sure the South of France will be a walk in the park for me. I'm quite sure. I've seen dead people. No kidding.
Dude - you cannot buy a Louis Vuitton scarf anywhere but Louis Vuitton. $ 22? Fake Louey Vuitton. The Africans sell them all along the coast. Wanna buy some Ray Bans?
Seriously though - just try wearing that mask along any street here - and bye bye.
You really must be a sissy, Mark. Look I'm not scared of a bunch of French thugs. They're a joke compared to the guys here. Gangsters here will have them for breakfast. No kidding. Its Luis Vuitton, old man. And pls desist from making racial remarks. So far its been fun, so don't make this ugly. For you, thats even low. Old man.
LOL - What racist remarks? Any town along the French and Italian Riviera is full of imported African immigrants selling fake designer wear. They are bought in by the local mafia specifically for the purpose.
And take it from me - the local Gendarmes are no breakfast.
I gotta admit, I've heard a few stories about French gangsters, coupled with some underground french movies and I must some are pretty impressive. But if only you know about these madmen all around me - even La Cosa Nostra would look like a joke. No kidding.
Ouch! Mark, I think you are better than that. What was the trade-off of that purchase for you?
Her mother had died recently and this was a bribe to stop the crying. Didn't work - Nor did I expect it to.
Your wife's mother dies and you buy her a purse. Her mother for heaven's sake! Ladies and gentleman, this shows you the true demeanor of our Mighty god, Mark Knowles. Enjoy him!
LOL - Now you are demonstrating your true ignorance. I was trying to make her feel better. Sorry that upsets you. I know you will kill at the drop of a hat and are the only African that can take on the French gendarmarie wearing a mask and all but still - that was below the belt.
What are you saying, Fiery? You mean when someone is over 50, they're no longer in touch with society, the world, reality? In other words they're not "with it"? What does "your time is gone" mean?
It is not a sin to start a thread, Mark but dont do it whilst eating chocolate,
what is the scarf for actually
no the chocolate is a sin, starting a forum is not we need another sin to cancel the chocolate out....
who the hell cares about bloody lui Vuiton ,Its still made in china so why the hell spend your money,just cause u are manipulated
Just popping in to say that weraing a scarf or bandana like that means gang related where I live. You need to chill for a bit there, k? I am not sure what you are trying to prove but I have to honestly say that I liked you alot better before you starting bickering with Mark. Age and wisdom rules. Peeps are probably wondering why you start such controversial threads, then get offended. Stick to writing hubs, it works better for ya.
I actually think it's a little scary and off-putting
I'm sorry you feel that way. I can't make you like me or hate me anyless. Its frigging fashion, for heaven's sake. People have Gorillas, even friggin frogs on their avatars. I've got a scarf on. Big deal. You wanna hate me, fortune, fine. Join Mark.
FieryCJ, This is an honest question. What do you get out of goading Mark? You could make such a good impression here on HP. Instead you go out of your way to insult someone who has friends and influence here. Is that just how you like to operate? Go write a hub.
I'd also like to know the answer to this. He's called Mark "old man" "sissy" and told him "his time is gone" What's with all the allusions to age? What has that got to do with wearing a scarf around one's face?
Hey Mighty, why is that everyone feels so darn compelled to kiss the guy's ass? Why? Cos he's got influence? Big deal. I wouldn't care less. If people will just for once step back and look at the guy - Mark for a minute, you'll find that he's not that much of a nice guy, not much. I mean, c'mon, what's with the Mark worship. Its like a friggin religion by itself in here. And Oh! I'm sorry that I'm not kneeling to Mighty Mark Knowles like everybody seems to be doing these days. Gawd!
I honestly don't think fiery's being insulting. It's just the way he talks. I think he's just a shoot from the hip kinda guy.
And I doubt very much that Mark hates you fiery. I should imagine Mr Knowles has better things to do with his time.
*thinks frigging-frog may have been a better name*
that's where you're wrong, frog. He hates me. I mean, he absolutely, pain-drippingly hates me. He cant get enough of poking me every chance he gets. If he wasn't married, I would think he was gay and had a crush on me. Seriously, its that bad. There may have been a time I respected him in here - when I came in newly and all - but all that is ancient history. You guys can keep worshipping him all you want. Lavish him with love, he'll love you all right back - Mark Knowles way. Ha! What a joke.
I do not hate you. I only make fun of people I like.
fiery - I'm afraid to say that I don't love Mark. Or even worship him. I love my partner. I love my children. I even love my cat. But Mark is not on that list. I don't know him. So I'm neither qualified to love nor hate him.
And I really do doubt that he hates you. Like I said, I believe he has better things to do. Loving people in the flesh is far more gratifying than the virtual alternative.
*wanders off for a coffee*
Mark ... so sorry ... blame fiery for evoking that statement
After all, he appears to believe that you have enough room in your life to physically hate him - so from now on I think you'd be well served to blame him for anything and everything.
Wow. You're very on whipping boy! My grandma had one you know. Poor little bugger!
You guys are not on the receiving end of all this, so i dont expect any of you to get it. The guy is crazy about me - he hates my damn guts.
Uh, I once thought the same thing, until I got to know him better, It is people like you who start wars and you did it so well. Those who do think and reach out for unerstanding are the ones who are understood and loved--well liked and this is more of what this world needs.
This is really interesting I have to say. I do reviews on products and know myself for a fact that Lv products, regardless of what it is, sell for hundreds of thousands of dollars. A good celebrity friend of mine wears LV and believe me, she pays big bucks for the stuff.
If your a gansta, more than likely it was bought on the black market or stolen. Growing up, I was in a gang... I lived in California and it's covered in gang activity. If you weren't in a gang, you got the crap beat out of you everyday till you picked a gang or a side.
Anyways, I'm not being ugly to anyone, it's just that I do this stuff for a living and do know facts. Check out my hubs and my website if your curious to know the facts.
frogdropping is right. All should be judged with respect to their IQs.
I think it's envy that makes him talk like this.
I don't think anyone would ever accuse me of Mark worship. I respect his opinions on many subjects and I respect the way he expresses those opinions.
The vast majority of Hubbers are intelligent people. They give respect to people who earn that respect. You earn respect not by picking ridiculous fights in the forums, but by demonstrating your intelligence. If you are choosing to spend time in the Forums you are pretty much expected to bring something constructive to the party.
Personally, I don't care if your scarf is LV or a bandana from the local five and dime. If you want to use a scarf in your avatar, that's your prerogative.
And see? Mark himself says he doesn't hate you! So what's all the fuss about then???
Everyone seems like such a loving bunch, lol.
I mean seriously, can't we all just get along... okay what about for a million bucks, a bottle of champaigne and a cigarette?
I've been around my kids too long, I need a break! You all know where i'm headed with this...
Fact: LV does not make a bandana in the print you are sporting.
Fact: Every LV bandana I've seen costs upwards of TWO HUNDRED DOLLARS.
Fact: You are likely wearing the fakest fake Louie Vitton piece of cotton that some schmuck could fob off on you.
Opinion: I am very sorry that you feel you need to flood the forums with negativity. I wish you would stop.
Opinion: Mark is a fantastic chap who just likes to make people feel and think, react and stand up for something. He does that pretty well.
Fact: Personal attacks are not welcome on the forums.
Charlotte - thank you for that - I was just about done with this, but that tipped the scales.
LG - the same. Despite outward appearances, it is nice to get got.
In the meantime, please give a big round of applause to the latest thread that has me literally laughing out loud. A big hand to..
Is it a sin to wear a fake LV scarf while buggering sheep?
Hey, ain't you supposed to be buying your wife a new LV purse? $500 and all?
Right now I am trying to thwart Make Money on the thread about the world ending and also on my hub "WHAT ARE YOU GOING TO DO ABOUT IT". I visited it but now I have to go make dinner and finish up the laundry. I wil be back though--promise!
I've seen this tantrum from him a few times. Just ask his a dumb question about movies and He'll become a sugar.
Who asked your opinion? Beat it. And leave my grandma out of this.
Fierycj is a troll. He took longer to reveal himself, but it's pretty obvious. He's glommed onto Mark because he can get attention in Mark's spotlight. Stop feeding him and he'll crawl away and bait the next unsuspecting group.
Listen, if you guys all wanna fall in line to worship Mark Knowles, fine. I'm sure he's sitting back and laughing at his psychosphantic followers - he's a smart guy, too. No doubt. But if you guys are gonna keep being blind - cos I know everyone who's siding him now are all his fans - so you're probably trying to justify your gross error. But whatever works for you. I gotta go to bed. I get more action in bed than in these forums. No kidding. Fare ye well, O ye followers of Mark Knowles.
No, don't go. You can do it with your left hand while typing with the right.
Fierycj, did you photoshop that scarf on to your avatar? Very clever, that's how you know it's real as it came from a real LV ad! I can see it's your old avatar underneath the photoshopped scarf. Why all this personal attack stuff just because of a scarf? I am confused?
Do you know where we can get those scarves? Maybe we should all photoshop one onto our avatars:-).
Mark if you're being charged $22 you are being ripped off. Maximum of $3 here in China. MM look on LV ads on the internet and you can find one to photoshop on.

I am all for enjoying a good debate but why take it so far? Is it for fun, boredom, or what? Look at almost any religion forum anywhere and it is the same thing. Why?

Okay this is great! I downloaded it this morning, and it's really working wonderfully. We all know Edweirdo, a very clever and useful hubber who created the HubDefender tool for us all which detects hub-theft and assists in dealing with it. Edweirdo has also written many helpful tutorial hubs on...
