Fiction


You may know that The Cliticals were discovered to be using fake pictures and have turned off their blog.

I also learned that Queen of Swords was using fake pictures as well, so I'm no longer following her blog.

Frankly, what bothers me more than the fact that people are posting false information about themselves (a photo is information) is that so many people are willing to overlook it.

One of the phrases I've heard repeated over and over in the U.S. over the past few decades is "Let's just heal and move on." This was in response not only to the September 11 attacks but also to Clinton's blow jobs, Bush's stealing of the elections in 2000 and 2004, Americans' tax dollars being misspent/lost/stolen in Iraq, etc.

I don't just heal and move on. I remember.

I dislike being lied to.

Several women have made disparaging comments toward male readers who, they presumed, had only been reading The Cliticals' and/or Queen of Swords' blogs because they were attracted to the "borrowed" photos accompanying the blogs and didn't care about the writing itself.

I was reading those two blogs because I enjoyed the writing. Sure, I enjoyed the pictures, too, but the writing kept me coming back. But as good as the writing was, I won't be going back again because I was lied to.

To say, "Hey, everyone lies in their blogs!" is not a response to this situation. I don't lie in my blog. What would be the point?

I am a writer by profession. I am paid to write fiction. I don't write technical manuals or movie star interviews or non-fiction at all. I'm paid to make up stories for others' enjoyment.

Since my day job is making things up, I feel no need to make things up here.

Hey, blog-based liars and frauds, instead of seeing how far you can get bending the truth and duping people on a web site, why don't you try your hand at actually writing fiction in a magazine, novel, or play? Or is your writing stolen, too?

I agree with you here in many ways. I don't understand why people are willing to overlook it too. But I was wrong in making the assumption that they overlooked it just because it was written by beautiful women. The writing was good too. But now, it seems that some of the writing was plagerized too. I read their blog also.....and whoever was behind the persona did themselves an injustice. They could have stood alone on their writing no matter who they were.

I am not surprised their pictures were lifted from a porn site. It is common for people who creates this "personas" to use stolen good looking pics. What else do they have to "fish/bait" customers? It is a shame when a person with so much writing talent has to use a fake persona to play on a sex site. You'll be surprised how many people with mental issues roam thru this type of sites. "They" are not the first fakes exposed, "they" wont be the last.

Kofla?

It's too easy for people to lose themselves in the anonymity the internet allows. You can be ANYTHING you want to be... and you might not even be discovered to be a fraud.

I do have to disagree with you on one point, though. I know you're not shallow, and I'm not accusing you of anything... but I believe you followed my ass to my blog, didn't you? Sometimes, a pretty picture is what will bring on popularity. I think a lot of people long to be popular, and will stop at nothing to achieve it. It's really sad. Because being popular for being something completely false is going to be one extremely lonely, sad life.

But, you know what? A part of why I want people to view me on web cam is to prove who I am. I have been accused of not being who I say I am. That's also part of why I have been linking my new lover's profile in my blogs... to have someone real who has actually met me, seen me, knows me, has had me. I also go a bit overboard with saying I met a person in person... like Ginnung for instance, who met my Husband & I. I feel a need to prove who I am. It's just too easy to lie here.

I was not aware of this latest drama until I read angel's blog. Like you I enjoyed their writings and their pictures were definately something to slobber over as well. As for me, I'm like you. I love to write and most of the things in my blog are as real as it gets. My life, no one elses.

I kinda understand how you feel because as easy as it is to forgive, it's not as easy to forget. No loss though cause there are other bloggers who are sincere and genuine even if it is in a sex site!

Catch ya later!

I rewrote this thread's initial post slightly to clarify what I meant.

You are right: I did love your photo of your ass and that's why I started reading your blog. But if I hadn't thought your writing itself were interesting, entertaining, and sincere I would have stopped reading your blog immediately. There are lots of places to find and enjoy pretty pictures on the Internet more easily than on AdultFriendFinder. If all I wanted were hot naked photos, I wouldn't bother with AdultFriendFinder at all. I'm here to connect with real people, even if it is only through their writing.

I started to write more of a reply, but it turned into something really long, and it's something I've been meaning to write about, so posted it in my blog. Sex, Lies and Videotape. How desperate are you for popularity here? I'd bet that a lot of the writing is stolen. The true stories are fiction. That's why I like to post pics as proof.
