Inside Dope International

Despite the constant comments from various haters out there who seem to enjoy telling me how no one reads the blog anymore, it appears that it does get noticed by a few.

Take France 24, a mega news site similar to CNN (only better) covering international news and affairs based in Paris, France.

Out of hundreds of thousands of blogs and comments on the New Yorker Obama cover story, they picked The Inside Dope's to feature in their piece on the issue.

Not the biggest deal in the world, but I'm appropriately humbled.

And not only that, but Sophie, the author, was kind enough to ask if she could use part of the post before hand. Gotta love those French.

This isn't the first time TID has been linked to and quoted internationally, but it's nice to be noticed in Paris.

So to my little haters out there, on behalf of the rest of us, SUCK IT. And I mean that only in the best way.

Hey! Just because I've had a lot of relationships doesn't give you the right to call me a "salut". I resent that.

Oh.

Never mind.

I got sued for defamation again. Does that mean I'm still relevant?

Don't sell your self so short, the number of people that HATE you is MASSIVE, not LITTLE.

It must be exciting to write a blog and be recognized by people in another Country, too bad nobody is this or that Country knows who you are!

Carl,
I'd say so. Especially if you kick their butts in court again.

Sorry to hear that whoever is going after you apparently hasn't learned from the past.

Yourself and two other cretins doesn't qualify as "massive".

Yourself and a couple other pathetic losers who don't like what I write, can't refute anything here, and can't argue your way out of a wet paper bag without being shown to be ignorant fools isn't something to be taken seriously by myself or anyone else.

Having your stupidity and lack of knowledge revealed isn't a reason to hate someone. Most people would be spurred to try a little harder, think a little bit, use some logic or facts.

But that's beyond you, and that's sad.

Sad because you, for no reason even you can identify, spend your time reading the blog every day and NEVER have a single intelligent thought to offer, instead spending your time and feeble brain power dreaming up little lame comments to deposit like so many bird droppings.

With enemies like you, it's almost too easy.

As to no one knowing who I am, that's just the way I want it, and it suits me fine.

I couldn't help but notice that you and your pathetic cohort never identify yourselves either, and with good reason.

I, at least, would have something to take credit for. You'd only have a reason for embarassment.

"HATE"? Gad, such a strong word from a regular contributor. Did you do something personally to that MASSIVE amount of souls to merit their HATE?

Can't help but feel kinda sorry for someone who reacts so violently to a blogger. Ah, well, c'est la guerre. As for me, life's too short to go around hating people just 'cause they don't agree with you.

Well nooner...

When these trolls take their petty shots, I think of a great quote from Jonathan Swift. (not that I consider myself a genius by any means):

"When a true genius appears in the world, you may know him by this sign, that the dunces are all in confederacy against him."

That quote, of course, was the source of the title of a truly great book, "A Confederacy of Dunces" by John Kennedy Toole, and it certainly has rung true in my experiences here in as much as every time I say something that's correct, and/or which shows just how ridiculous and laughable the ideas held by some of these goofballs are, there is sure to be a "confederacy of dunces" that pops up to fling mental feces around like monkeys in a zoo.

These drooling humunculus' are just pissed because, well, because I make them feel bad because the stupid ideas they believe have never been challenged and refuted by anyone, and when I do, they tend to throw little tantrums.

This kind of commenter is just like the kid on the schoolyard who's been whipped or humilated shouting over his shoulder as he walks away, "Oh Yeah? Well, you, you, you're just a big.... stupid head!"

And of course, some people just hate other's success, twisted as it seems.

I don't have anything against people who aren't the sharpest knife in the drawer. Lord knows I'm solidly average in the brain department.

But when they're stupid and don't know it, and childish assholes to boot, then yeah, I have no use for them.

Dope,

I read on the QCEXAMINER that you are Chris beiderbecker? Is this true???

First of all, you're not exactly bright, are you?

First, you're likely lying, as I don't believe the person who runs QCExaminer would allow such stupid speculation on their blog.

Then you apparently are willing believe whatever drivel someone posts on an unmoderated blog.

And as further evidence of your brilliance, you think you can just post a comment here and repeat the crap, as though if I were that person, I'd simply admit it after remaining anonymous for over 3 years.

That's the mark of a brilliant mind.

But just to put you out of your misery, no, I am not that person, whoever they are, and anyone who says I am is lying and doing so to try to spread rumors and smears, and by doing so, hurting the person they falsely identify as me. They have no shame.

They've tried to do this for years, thinking that if they could name me, then they could begin the lies, smears, and attacks, since they couldn't honestly dispute or argue anything I've written, particularly about them, and because slimy gutter tactics are the only thing they're dumb enough to try.

Again, if you had some sense, you'd not engage in such things yourself for obvious reasons.
