Why comments don't go up immediately

Some of you are complaining that comments are not going up as soon as posted. This is because I have had to enable moderation so I can approve comments. I have had to do this because someone is littering the site with Nazi masturbation spam - they tried it again last night but were thwarted - plainly the person responsible is mentally unstable with a lot of time on his hands (most probably a male judging by the loser site he's trying to promote). And because I don't spend all my time at a computer, comments sometimes go up much later than posted. Sorry.

<< plainly the person responsible is mentally unstable with a lot of time on his hands >>

Or simply someone who counter-attacks with the most appropriate and successful means. The content of the spams is meaningless – it could as well be about viagra or cheap software. It's the result that counts. You've been seeking war, now you've got it, and I fear this is just the beginning, if you insist. I think Lorenzo is quite right about the "Spacey curse".

PS. Why was my previous message censored ?

Hardly successful. The blog is as busy as ever with comment and I'm posting merrily away. I think, Duralex, you are cursed with a superstitious mind, inclined to over-react to the slightest thing - a drama queen, in short. Whatever Spacey curse there is will be the creation of an inadequate person who pathetically identifies with a Hollywood star - Spacey kind of fills his hole (and not just an arsehole).

I don't censor messages - they go up intact. The only messages I am rejecting are those for the Nazi masturbation site, or anything pointlessly defamatory. Your point that the content of the spam is "meaningless" is plainly daft - why should the loser sending the stuff focus on Nazi masturbation? Why not mix the spam up a bit, aside from the ease of cutting and pasting prepared links? I would suggest that HE is a right-wing piece of crud trying to shut me up.

Now, Duralex, do you seriously imagine Arcati can be shut up? And is there anything on this site that lead you to believe I don't enjoy a fight?

Mmmm. Better said this way, maybe : you’ve raised a bunch of evil spirits who keep you alive and busy by incessantly poking you. It might not last forever.

<< I think, Duralex, you are cursed with a superstitious mind, inclined to over-react to the slightest thing - a drama queen, in short. >>

I’m a bit of a conspirationist, I don’t deny it. There are strong reasons for it. :-)

<< Whatever Spacey curse there is will be the creation of an inadequate person who pathetically identifies with a Hollywood star - Spacey kind of fills his hole (and not just an arsehole). >>

OK, you’re obsessed by that actor’s “whole” personality, everybody knows. Do you really need to be vulgar on top of it all ? :-o

<< I would suggest that HE is a right-wing piece of crud trying to shut me up. >>

As a matter of fact, you’re nothing else yourself than a self-delusional ultra-right-wing cultural (and sexual) terrorist. No wonder if you get a right-wing terrorist backlash. It’s a fair destiny.

<< Now, Duralex, do you seriously imagine Arcati can be shut up? >>

I don’t. As we say in french, “c’est pas parce qu’on n’a rien à dire qu’on doit fermer sa gueule” (having nothing to say is not a reason to shut the f*ck up).

<< And is there anything on this site that lead you to believe I don't enjoy a fight? >>

Well, frankly speaking, what I've seen actually leads me to believe you enjoy the defeat more than the fight. Why would you be so obstinately giving the stick you’ll be beaten with, otherwise ? But then, I’ve long since suspected that you’re a self-destructive masochist.

I don't see any censorship in this latest comment of yours Duralex. Is anything missing, perchance? Do let me know.

I'm not obsessed with Spacey at all, but he happens to have a life and family perfect for my purposes. I just know that a successful soap opera requires repetition. After all, does not a symphony rely on the subtle mechanics of repetition, juxtaposition and counterpoint? I'm sure the late Dinu would agree as he raises a caterwaul on his fiddle in hell.

Try to think beyond the literal, Duralex; ponder on the subtle motives of Arcati. Think of all the energy my "obsession" has unleashed. My greatest work is Stephanie Mastini. She is the stuff of legend. Art.

And as for your '“C’est pas parce qu’on n’a rien à dire qu’on doit fermer sa gueule” (having nothing to say is not a reason to shut the f*ck up).' Do you have to be quite so vulgar, Duralex?

At LAST, something we can agree upon.

Aaaaaah, the naked truth at last ? No. Most likely a belated attempt to turn your painful neurosis into a self-gratifying cynicism... As Cocteau says : "Puisque ces mystères me dépassent, feignons d'en être l'organisateur" (since these mysteries are beyond my grasp, let me pretend I am organizing them).

This is a bit too twisted, chérie de mon coeur, you won't get away with it like that.

Not mentioning that there might be a secret truth behind "your" truth... something really creepy that you don't suspect... or don't wish to see.

PS. And please don't confuse coarseness and vulgarity. Coarseness in language can be an aristocratic privilege. Vulgarity is a low way of thinking that no rhetoric can hide.

Not at all, indeed. Digging into your "early works" (that got no comment at the time) brings enough evidence about it.

< but he happens to have a life and family perfect for my purposes. >

Oh, I see. You're just exploiting them (or what you think you know about them) like the Iranian president (don't ask me to write his goddamn name) does uranium: with peaceful intentions.

< I just know that a successful soap opera requires repetition. After all, does not a symphony rely on the subtle mechanics of repetition, juxtaposition and counterpoint? >

From where I am seated, it's an unbearable cacophony.

< My greatest work is Stephanie Mastini. She is the stuff of legend. Art. >

And to think she's stupid enough to be flattered for being chosen as the lead from which you make your gold... :-)

Obviously Madame is tired of her/his/its once favourite toys, now s/he/it's breaking them by "revealing" her actual purposes. But all this "creative" blah blah blah is just for show. As I suspected the other day, s/he/it's just looking for an honourable retreat (see the flop of Randy's intimidation attempt and the results of the current poll). No one is fooled, but at least we'll soon get rid of the Spacey curse. :->

I should have said: the flop of her/his/its intimidation attempt on Randy.

In hell?!! Dinu was an angel, bitch.

Yeah, this looks as though MA is desperately trying to throw a hot potato away. I suppose the newest rumors about Spacey's "personal projects" must be true. ;-)

Does that Arcati creature seriously believe that the Prince of Darkness would allow her to sign his masterpiece in his place?

Madame Arcati said...

I shall study the results of the Spacey poll and decide how to proceed with my soap opera. It's certainly getting the ratings ... and my darling Stephanie never fails to pull a rabbit out of her hat.

Anonymous said...

It will be Spacey's rabbit against hers, then. No suspense in this fight, I fear.

I hope you've noticed that your tiresome saga is getting less and less successful everyday.

Madame Arcati said...

No, I hadn't noticed. Visitor figures are higher than ever - and now that the moderator's on I can exercise some quality control. I think it should become permanent, I like the power it gives me. Fate does indeed move in a mysterious way - it took a Nazi masturbation obsessive to enlighten me as to my power. You see, even the creepy-crawlies of the internet have a part to play in the ecology of Arcati - does not this thought reassure you, hearten you?

"Fate does indeed move in a mysterious way."

Even more mysterious than you might imagine.

No doubt you'll twist the results so that they suit your own psychotic needs, whatever they are. But the game has lost all interest (if it ever had any). If there is any surprise on your blog, it comes from your commenters. You're now reduced to merely echoing them more often than not. You're nothing without them, but I feel they are unfortunately beginning to desert you: less than 20 comments to the latest developments of your favorite soap opera, it's a pathetic flop. Just face the truth.

Madame Arcati said...

But you're still here, still intrigued as you rub yourself in my presence, you filthy perv. The soap opera will continue, repetition will be victorious.
