Sounds like he wasn't really specifically referring to you, ya know, like 'I, Scooter X, call YOU, Mucous a LIAR liar liar liar
You do have a point, if that makes you feel better. Scooter had no real basis to make the claim. Indeed, I'd even go so far as to say the selling out of Amazon dvd's even suggests his logic was flawed...
I just finaly got around to reviewing this thread and Not once anywhere have I called Mucous a liar.
Rereading the thread brought back some memories. Basically what happened was Mucous was poking his fingers in the eyes of the other members at BSP claiming that the GINO mini-series DVD was some kind of top seller.
How is this poking fingers in other people's eyes? I stated that it was selling well in my area, and on amazon.com. They kept claiming otherwise, and I refuted them.
Meanwhile at Sci-Fi, Koenigrules and other sycophants were stating that the GINO DVDs were flying off the shelf in stores everywhere.
Nope, just in our areas. Since we're the fans, maybe we come from areas where fans of the new show are more plentiful.
This was right after the holidays and many of us had girftcards to cash in on so we decided to conduct our own little group investigation by asking the stock employers at our local Best-Buys, Wall-Marts and we all came up with the same results, the GINO shelves were fully stocked and the stock employees everywhere had the same stories. The GINO DVDs only sold a few copies.
So, it wasn't selling well in your area. This proves what about my area?
This was conducted by 5 people ranging from about 25 stores (upon our completion).
and my exact coments were:
I have no doubt that the DVDs are selling at Amazon, but fo those people who are posting that their local stores are selling out are most likely throwing the bull.
Yes, because investigating your area let's you know how they're selling in MY area.
Mucous not once have I ever singled you out and called you a liar. I merely generalized making a theory about the people like the latest wave of sycophants led by KR are"MOST LIKELY (yes this my assumption based on a proven theory) throwing the bull" in reference to the GINO mini-series DVDs flying off the shelf.
I was the only one in the thread who had said it. You seemed to be targeting me. And you still had no way of knowing that our claims were untrue, unless you drove to our hometowns to investigate.
Mucous, I can't beleive that you've been stalking and harrassing me and picking fights with me for the past two years because of that post of mine.
Well, I'm glad you finally acknowledged that it happened. Why didn't you do it all those other times I posted it?
You are a whackjob. Go get some therapy because you really need it.
Also you're a liar (either that or you lack skills in reading comprehension which seems to be a common defect of character among the GINOids).
Also you're strong hatred towards anyone and everyone that doesn't embrace GINO is appalling.
No, you're a liar. I have a hatred of purists. If those that don't like my show don't talk about it, I won't challenge them. If they only make one or two statements about it, I won't challenge them. I challenge those who incessantly rant about it. Why are you smearing me?
Go get some help you psycho before you break down and start gunning down people down on the street or worse yet on your college campus. !!!
I would never hurt anyone from my college. I love this place.
For you to take this offhanded, tossed out comment so personally, to the point that you are still angry, still feeling the need to post a link to it nearly 2 years later to demand proof or an aplolgy... that's a little much.
It's not about the post, it's about the fact that in the past you've refused to acknowledge it.
We've all had our feelings bruised, gotten into differences of opinion, stated things as facts without proof, refused to believe other people's posted facts. People don't normally hold themselves to journalistic standards about verification & allegation when they are just chit- chatting about tee-vee.
But I acknowledge it when I do.
a.) Amazon never sold out of GINO DVDs.
b.) I even stated that the GINO DVDs are selling at Amozon. However my theory is that a good portion of that small clinched average 1.9 million viewers ordered their GINO DVDs online.
You're saying that they sold 1.9 million copies. That's four times what Firefly sold. And if that's your theory, fine, but don't claim that we're lying when we state that IN OUR AREAS the DVDs are selling well.
And as for Amazon selling out, wouldn't Universal be able to make new copies as fast as they sell anyway?
