What the hell Echee!! Why do all these people keep showing up on my Blog. I am putting a fairly pathetic effort into it, because work is so bad right now, but Christ, you know people know of my Blog, and when you ban their comments they will come here and of course you know I have no compunction about making you look bad for being a control freak.
Just let comments go through for God Sake! Who cares anyway? It is not a matter of national security. Let your readers decide what is a good comment or not, not Big Brother Echee.
Plus it takes a half hour to scroll down to where the comments are anyway
there are so many damn pictures. And then there is comment moderation and then
there is that horrible captcha thing or whatever it is called. You can't even read it.
You do everything possible to micro manage the information on your Blog.
You know I feel kind of bad for ALBS, xxS, Usaigchan (I can never spell that so I call her RealU) and Mishy and others, they somehow think you are capable of filtering responses to "their" comments in a way that they find acceptable.
Anyway below are some comments that Echee banned and other comments he couldn't handle so he either just brushed them off or ignored them ||| ...
Comment One. This person makes some sense to me. Emma has said a lot of things about her education, but she made it pretty clear she was going to continue her acting career. I think when she said she was going to focus on her studies, she meant for months not years.
Echee and others tend to isolate one comment then zero in on it and not look at all other comments on the same issue collectively...
Anon said on Echee's Blog but it was not allowed so they came here and commented:
here it is! i don't think anyone likes being ignored.. and i think i was wright on some things!
"you don't necessarily make things up. you have tunnel vision sometimes though.emma said: "i am going to focus solely on my studies"
ok, but she also said "i am going to do both" when asked
about school and acting.
letterman asked her in 2009 when talking about school
"first and foremost you consider yourself an actor, correct?"
Emma said: "yes". on jonathon ross, she said she wanted the
best of both worlds when talking about school.
so what has emma done so far, she focused on her education
for 4 straight semesters then focused on her career, then
focused on her education, then focused on her career.
that brings us to the summer of 2012. we don't know what
will happen next.
you have failed to make a case that when emma said she will
focusing on her education she meant until she completely
"finished" her education. it would be career suicide for her
to go to 4 straight years of college and not do one movie.
and she never said that was her intention. she clearly said
she was going to do both.
you pick "one" quote on an issue and dwell on it to the
exclusion of all others instead of looking at "all" the quotes
on an issue. if you look at "all" the quotes on education, emma is doing
pretty much what she said she would do, but also figuring
things out as she goes along. no one can predict the future.
when there are many quotes on an issue but a person focuses on
one or two and does'nt consider all of them, then this is the
definition of taking something out of context.
Next a brush off of Rose because Echee had no response. This was about Emma not knowing what books she has or something. A totally lame accusation to begin with.
Rose said: When I asked him to provide proof, he responded with "LOL good night rose". I hope those who read his blog will see his response for what it is--a dismissal of a challenge to provide proof.
Ignored comments because Echee had no articulate response...
- Echee ignored a comment about the caffeine meme when someone said maybe she was drinking decaf. Or maybe since that quote was so damn old to begin with that Emma didn't like coffee when she was young but then did when she went to college. What the hell is wrong with that? Is that really an issue to criticize someone on?
- Echee ignored a comment when someone said that Emma did not directly call Kim K "low culture". Emma said reality TV was low culture compared to Virginia Wolfe, then referenced Kim K who basically epitomizes reality TV. This is an obvious misquote by Echee.
Oh but Echee is always right and anyone who defends Emma is a Loon or Stan.
And last someone posted the below comment a little while ago. I think I know who this is from PS. I don't see why Echee wouldn't just let it go through. What the heck is his problem? It wasn't some goo goo blind faith worship of the Emma Deity comment like Echee claims all her fans make. It was alright. (Maybe I did get a little pushy with the Perks stuff. They didn't like me at the Leaky Cauldron years ago either. I get too emotional sometimes.)
Any hoo, luckily I type my comments in Word so I can spell check and shit. Echee deleted my comment so I thought I would put it here. I don't think it was that bad. (But dude, take your messiah story down. Start over or something.)
Here is my not very worthy comment but not worthy of censorship either,,..
It's me again. Boring convo on Eden's Blog and PS. Emma is in NY again, wasn't she just at Wimbleton?
Anyhoo ,,... xxS said: "You do not state anything that poses as a disconnect in my statement (not theory)."
I am just saying, not all Emma fans are exactly alike just as all people on this Blog are not exactly alike. There are myriad variations and at least six degrees of separation between a Gilbert and most people I talk to on a daily basis.
Most of us do not put much stock in Teen Vogue, or Seventeen or The Sun or DM, irregardless if something is positive or negative about Emma.
There is a meme that says "praise all her magazine interviews", this is not necessarily true. We are not as gullible as you think. We understand the "grain of salt" paradigm.
Just FYI, Gilbert is Jerry Riddle on Potter Shots. He acts like a pompous expert on Perks because he read the book a zillion times. He is pedantic and obnoxious. I thought the book was pretty boring but I want to see how Emma does as Sam.
I think we all do whether you like her or not. I am almost afraid to watch it because she might suck!
If you look closely we are not all that different. There are a few people on the frindges or extremes, that have out of control obsessions that occlude their judgement, but most people fall somewhere in between.
This is a global aphorism!
Just for the record, I only read Perks of Being a Wallflower once. I have a semi eidetic memory. I didn't read it a zillion times.
Good night - Gilbert
