BEFORE YOU DELETE A COMMENT

Note: I do get an email once a comment is posted. If you delete your comment I still get the email.

Knowing that help to understand the following really, really funny incident:

I open up my emails and it say that I got a new comment on the "Mind reader post" So I open up my blog and find this by Ben:

Ben said...
I just bought this product and I have to say it's great. I know most of the comments are negative but I need to defend this guy and the videos cause it's really frusting me that magician's like yourself are so immature. Obviously before I bought it I did a bit of rearch on the net and found a few posts on the cafe etc ...but i totally disagee... i love it and i'm sure heaps of other people do too...anyway that's just my opinion!!


The above comment was by Xavier (The Mind Reader himself I suppose) and it is deleted.

So I wondered what that post might have been. So I checked my emails again. And here is what Xavier commented

Xavier has left a new comment on your post "Who Is The Mindreader?":

I just bought this product and have to say it's great. Now I understand that all the comments on here are negative but I have to defend this product as everything about it is great. Obviously before I bought it I did a bit of research on the net and found a few posts on the cafe etc and am really disappointed that fellow magicians are acting like this...i love it and i'm sure heaps of other people do too...to be honest it really annoys me reading all this stuff which isn't really true at all...anyway that's just my opinion!!


About the same text! So what happened? Well Xavier found this blog and decided to add his two cents. Which is good. But then he realized that he was posting using the Xavier-account, which would tip off that it is him. Then he deleted his own comment and used a different account to post as Ben.

So Xavier has decided not to stand up to his own product and to pretend he is someone else, defending his product. Even claiming that he bought it. So it is a lie.

So why did he do it that way? Well because he would have to deal with the claim that he stole Millard Longman’s Acidus Novus and is selling it. And that might get him into legal trouble.

So again, before you delete a comment, know that I still know what you wrote.

Oh! I should add I must say most everyone here is constructive on some level. As to say I really like reading the comments here.

@Darkstar - Roland has less trouble with comments because he isn't telling deliberate lies about people like you were, nor does he simply have an axe to grind against specific people. Perhaps if your blog had stuck to facts and done less blatant lying and insulting, you wouldn't have had as much trouble.
But hey, don't let the truth get in the way, you go right ahead and cry about how bad it was for you, Boo Hoo

I love the way Cardman/Darkstar/Tyler tries to rubbish the three teaching DVDs we've brought out for magicians by bagging the fourth one (the one we made to teach bar bets to the lay public)

Trickster said...

Tyler doesn't like to let the truth get in the way of his attacks Tim, you should know that by now.

His latest post about me implies that I dress in the style of Miami Vice.

For those whose memory is as bad as his:

It's so odd that someone who prides himself on his accurate crediting that he's so sloppy when it comes to making a decent argument.

But then, he hides behind anonymity, is too scared to allow open comments (unlike Roland, or even me), constantly brags about his sexual conquests and is evangelical in his incessant posts on atheism... what else would you expect?
