Back From Tex Country

The current administrator of this blog(until Tex finally decides to take it over)has returned from Tex's part of the country.(I was in the Dallas/Ft. Worth area) In my absence, I enacted Comment Moderation at this blog.

I'll be disabling that feature in a few minutes.

While I was gone, I had to reject several comments from Tex dealing with quoting excerpts from a sex site. These quotes were made by someone Tex is having a "comment war" with.

I consider them inappropriate for a blog devoted mainly to Tex's issues regarding Quixtar. I will continue to delete any comments of that nature.

Obviously, when Tex takes over this blog, he will be free (AND RESPONSIBLE) for any thing he wishes to write.

44 comments:

Dave,

You just mentioned two (one directly, one indirectly) of many reasons why I'm not interested in running my own blog.

David Robison said...

Tex,

I've just driven 10 hours on very little sleep, you'll have to be more specific.

You won't run a blog because you can delete comments?

You won't run a blog because you'll be responsible for what you write?

You won't run a blog because you're from Texas?

Help me out

rocket said...

I understand it to mean Tex isn't interested in writing anything.

Tex said...

You are both wrong.

I won't run a blog because I would be legally responsible for deleting certain comments.

I'm not as concerned about the comments I write, as those written by others, just as you said prior to leaving for your trip.

I am not interested in having to take the time and effort to "police" a blog.

Recall in less than a few hours of the start of "my" blog, it was filled with posts of masturbation.

There are only a few bloggers who would visit, and NONE of them have agreed to keep the discussion on task and chastise others who don't.

I'm not interested in babysitting a blog, I have far more productive ways of bringing the tool scam to a conclusion, especially now that momentum is on my side.

rockette, your comment about me not being interested in writing anything is plain stupid.

David Robison said...

But Tex, the comments I had to "police" were from you.

If you were responsible then you would mainly have to police yourself.

Tex said...

Dave,

I would have policed the masturbation one and many others.

I think you know this. Next time try to be intellectually honest.

rocket said...

Once again, your understanding of the most basic premise leaves me thinking, "What the hell?"

So you think you would be held legally responsible for stuff other people write just because it's on your blog?

Do you think business owners worry about being held legally responsible for comments their customers and employees make?

Your delusions of being the reason the tools scam is being addressed are now becoming more understandable.

Looks like you are either

a) Someone who doesn't understand civil liabilities at all.

b) An autocratic would be dictator

When you see how you deal with people and objections in an online forum setting, it's not difficult to understand why you don't have much success in Amway.

Looks like you've chosen the tools to blame for your shortcomings, rather than attempt to change.

I believe once the tools scam is addressed (which you will not have done, who you kidding?)I'm not sure what you will have for an excuse to continue doing poorly.

Because unless you change your attitude, you will do poorly. Tools or no tools Tex.

Tex said...

rockette,

Why didn't you make the same comments about liability to Dave when he indicated he deleted some posts?

I assure you that you have no clue what my involvement is in getting the tool scam corrected.

rocket said...

I noticed you didn't say a word about your continuing failure within Amway, tool scam or no tool scam.

I trust Dave's judgement because he acts like a grown up.

You? well.....you just keep thinking you're changing the world.

Tex said...

Perhaps I didn't say anything about my "continued failure" in Amway because I don't have "continued failure".

A grown up would chastise the person posting masturbation posts. So would fellow grown up bloggers.

Many folks who were criticized as being "nothing", until time and events proved them wrong. You're just one of many, and actually an indication I'm on the right path.

rocket said...

No progress after 15 years in most endeavors would be considered a failure by any rational human beings standards.

Why do you bring up the masturbation thing again? Obsessed much?

You keep telling yourself whatever you need to hear. Sometimes, people are wrong.

You are a people (in the most primitive form)

And you are wrong.

Tex said...

How do you know whether I'm making progress? There have been many folks in history who worked for much more than 15 years before they were "successful".

And you haven't made a single comment regarding the fact that comment was inappropriate. I put you in the same category as the person who made the comment in the first place.

Time and events will prove whether I am right or wrong. Events over time are going in my direction. I have the facts and logic. I would bet on me. But then again, I thought the Giants would win yesterday, because I had facts and logic.

rocket said...

If I were to start commenting on every comment I thought was inappropriate involving you, well, that just not realistic now is it?

Kinda like Amway...tool scam or not.

By the way, Castro wrote a book called "Time Will Prove Me Right" which was also titled "History Will Prove Me Right". I saw a copy of it for sale in a flea market in downtown Havana a few years back.

Thought that was funny how I referred to you as a would be dictator a while back, and then you said that.

David Robison said...

Originally, the comments involving mentioning of masturbation were not deleted because he content of the comments were tied to previous comments.

I thought it would disrupt the flow of the conversation. Also, I was trying to give ALL commenters and especially Tex, some leeway in discussing whatever Tex wanted.

The comments I deleted while the blog was in "moderation mode" were made by Tex and I believe Porkchopjim. (I'm not sure now)

The deleted and/or rejected comments' subject matter was deemed by me to be "inappropriate".

I am being "intellectually honest"
(tex's words)when I say that at this moment I am The Head Cowboy on this blog and will be until Tex takes it over or until I archive the whole thing.

Tex said...

rockette,

If you commented with a minimal level of decency or intelligence, I would care about your opinion. You don't, so neither do I.

Regarding the Castro comment, there's a "slight" difference, in that I am not advocating a dictatorship. Quite the opposite, in fact.

rocket said...

Ever so slight.

Tex said...

Dave,

Go back and read the "Why Tex was Banned" thread again, which is where these comments first showed up. This is clearly a comment out of left field and had NOTHING to do with the discussion. You are again being intellectually dishonest.

I'm pretty sure the comments deleted were also from pcj, and my response to them.

You're not only the Head Cowboy, you're the ONLY cowboy. So giddy-yup.

Tex said...

rockette,

If a free market and a dictatorship are only slightly different to you, I can see the source of our difficulties.

David Robison said...

Oh Tex,

I'm so far from a real cowboy it's pathetic, but I do wear Wrangler jeans.

Those Texas State Troopers I saw on the hiway yesterday do look like modern day Cowboys, though. Kind of a cross between cowboys and Marines.

Anyway, if you'd like all comments that mention masturbation or penis size deleted, I'm more than willing to do it; except it might still make other comments irrelevant.

I believe the best course at the moment for all commenters is to just not make comments like that in the future and try, and I emphasize, TRY to be civil.

BTW, Tex, if you have something you'd like to post here as a blog entry, just email me and I'll post it.

Dave

I wasn't talking about free markets and dictatorships.

I was making an innuendo (which you weren't sharp enough to catch onto) that you are very strident in your views.

Cool. But everyone already knows what you are talking about....the tools scam.

Anyone with half a brain would look online before signing up to independently investigate it.

If they did, they'd find you, and not get involved.

Hey! Maybe you are accomplishing something!

Good for you Tex.

Tex said...

I guess we'll have to let your "innuendo" pass, it still doesn't make any sense to me.

If "everyone" knew I was talking about the tool scam, there wouldn't be one.

I don't believe only those in or looking at the business have half a brain. They are instructed by upline to ignore the garbage on the internet.

The trouble is, there is both accurate (me) and inaccurate (many others) information on the internet.

If someone doesn't get in for whatever reason is okay with me, at least until the tool scam is history. No "maybe" about it, I am accomplishing something.

I would prefer to stay on topic, but when you play with children you have to accept a little throwup here and there.

rocket said...

Yes, you run a pretty tight ship when it comes to staying on topic.

Tex said...

Thanks.

Joecool said...

tex said: If "everyone" knew I was talking about the tool scam, there wouldn't be one.

Joe says: Nobody's listening. It's like chicken little screaming the sky is falling.

Secondly, there are other issues besides the tools scam.

Tex said...

They're listening. You just gave up and/or are too busy getting "serviced" at your local whore houses.

Yes, there are other issues. But this is the BIG one, and when corrected, will fix many of the other problems. Then the remaining issues will be more visible and easier to deal with.

Anonymous said...

Maybe they would listen if you weren't so immature. All you do is repeat a lot of nothing, call people names and get your rocks off by reading and posting what Joecool had to say on WSG.
Maybe change could come if you weren't such an idiot. Like they are going to listen to someone who has nothing to say other than insults. Redneck!!

Tex said...

anon,

That makes no sense. They aren't doing anything because I am immature. Think about how stupid that sounds. They allow the lying cowardly "kingpins" to keep ripping off IBO's because I'm "immature".

I'm virtually the only voice consistently pointing out the largest problem, by far, with this business, the basic model shown (Quixtar) versus the REAL business model (tool scam). You're a real piece of work. Your mama must have dropped you on your head when you were little....Several times.... Over and over.

I point out jc's whoring AND lying about it because it goes to his character and believability. HE is the one who said he got out because his upline didn't like his girlfriend. Sounds like she got the raw end of that deal when she married him.

Don't attack me. Attack the whore mongerer and liar.

Maybe change could come if you weren't such an idiot. Like they are going to listen to someone who has nothing to say other than insults. Idiot!!

Joecool said...

I read a thread on Qblog showing tex is a racist. Is it relevent tex?

Tex said...

anon,

I already responded to that post.

jc,

It doesn't exist.

Joecool said...

Here you go tex:

http://www.webraw.com/quixtar/forum/viewtopic.php?t=2930&start=15

Sounds racist to me.

Tex said...

Sorry jc, that link doesn't work for me. I've been "banned", remember? How about the category, thread name, and date?

Joecool said...

Title of the thread: Red Flags

Tex said: That's what I want to be when I grow up, a Black person. The highest murder rate. The highest incarceration rate. The lowest life expectancy. Highest out of wedlock birth rate. Highest abortion rate. Do I need to go on? The very few "role models" are either athletes (chances of becoming one of these is lower than winning the lottery, only to step outside and get hit by lightning, and I'm talking about the ones that are NOT into drugs, steroids, and beating their wives) or gangsta rappers (no comment necessary).

There are many who are normal, upstanding citizens, but they don't get labelled as role models, even though they are the real role models. However, by the above statistics, there aren't nearly enough.

Tex said...

jc,

Do you know who said this? - "Let me tell you something, your dirty laundry gets out of school at 2:30 every day, it's cursing and calling each other nigger as they're walking up and down the street. They think they're hip. They can't read. They can't write. They're laughing and giggling, and they're going nowhere."

Or this? - "You [Black] young men and old men, you've got to stop beating up your women because you can't find a job, because you didn't want to get an education."

How about this one? - "When you put on a record and that record is yelling - (bleep) this- and (bleep) that, and you've got your six- or seven- year-old sitting in the backseat of the car, those children hear that."

Here's anothe one, who is it, jc? - "What I'm saying here... and the mistake I made was in saying that there are [Black] people who are striving and working in the lower economic area. The [Black] people who are not holding up their end is quite obvious to me: And that happens to be those people, to me, who don't have a clue of education-- learning standard English, math, and graduating from school-- what that has for them in terms of empowerment."

Is this person racist as well, jc?

Put the category and dates of the post on here so folks can see the context those remarks were made, as I requested you do originally, jc.

What did I state that is untrue, jc?

Joecool said...

*yawn*

Tex said...

Yawn, indeed.

Porkchopjim said...

I do not believe that I've had any comments removed...as there's no point in clogging up the queue when the owner is gone.

I'm pretty sure the comments deleted were also from pcj, and my response to them.

Now, how Tex would be able to see the moderation queue - and publish responses to them before the moderator had a chance to review and approve them...well, that's a neat trick.

Or a false statement.

Joecool said...

PCJ, does that make tex a liar?

BTW, did you visit Qblog recently?
Whoz discovered insider's identity.

Porkchopjim said...

PCJ, does that make tex a liar?

No - he only said 'pretty sure.'

I just pointed out that there was no way of being 'pretty sure' at all. Shock.

Now, I did write a response to his 'business success - how do we know he doesn't have any' - but do not remember if I sent it. I do not think there was anything overtly out of line, as all I did was paraphrase previous statements that he's made.

BTW, did you visit Qblog recently?
Whoz discovered insider's identity.


It looks like he might have.

Tex said...

pcj,

There was a period of time when our comments were posted for a short period of time prior to Dave removing them. I read these comments before Dave removed them, but I can't be certain they were from you. However, I am pretty sure they were from you.

jc,

Therefore, I'm not a liar. Sorry to ruin your day.

David Robison said...

I removed comments from a lot of people...comments quoting the wsg site and comments about masturbation and who practices it, and the size of genitalia.

Follow-up comments after these comments were also removed.

Call it censorship--but I felt that it needed to be done.

Tex's comments were removed, PCJ's and JoeCool's along with others were also removed.

Glad to see that the conversation is continuing despite these hiccups in flow.

Porkchopjim said...

'Comment Moderation' allows for comments to be posted before they are approved? That's a new one.

I retract my previous doubt of being deleted - I'm pretty sure I laughed at Tex, and not in the spirit of decent conversation.

Tex said...

pcj,

That's not what either Dave or I said.
