Dave Cogito, Massachusetts – Moderator on WritingForums.org
Todays submission to the “Real Deal” bitch slap list is this guy. His name is Dave, he is from Massachusetts, USA and he is 55 years old. (Born May 21, 1953)
This guy is a moderator on Writingforums.org which is a forum for authors and aspiring authors. He is also a reviewer on there. Yet he has never wrote a book. Go figure! Hows that for credentials to be an authors’ forum moderator?
Instead of writing a book, or trying to, this guy has racked up almost TEN thousand posts on that small forum! Ye gods! What does the guy do all day long? He sits hammering away at his keyboard looking to cause cyber conflicts with those considerably more educated than himself.
Unfortunately, when one tries to be clever this way, it has a habit of backfiring. Using a forum moderators “delete” button is not a valid way of debating someone when they have proved you wrong David!
Lets take a closer look at this guy…….. on his profile on Writingforums.org he says, “some day I want to teach college Math and Science.” Er… you are 55 already dude – ain’t it a bit late?
He goes on to list his interests: “Science Fiction and superheroes, Mysteries, recreational programming, cooking and hiking.” Yowser! Slow down there dude, there is a list guaranteed to melt a girls pants at 50 paces.
Of course, being a moderator on a writers forum, he would want to add an air of credibility to himself. He does this by proclaiming: “I have read the Lord of the Rings Trilogy at least 40 times.” Wow – this guy is like Action Man! How do women keep their hands off him?
A self confessed athiest, whose favourite quote is: “I like to keep an open mind, but not so open that my brains fall out.” – Judge Harry Stone. Hmm, who is Judge Harry Stone? A character from an NBC comedy show that finished in 1992. Thats his best quote? I am suprised he managed to put down his Lord of the Rings trilogy long enough to watch the show sixteen years ago. Mogadon anyone?
Well he must have an exciting job I reckon. Gandalf’s dry cleaner perhaps? Pipe cleaner to Bilbo Baggins? Better than that: This guy is a Software Engineer, and if that is not exciting enough, he was formerly a Research Chemist!
You need only look at his picture to imagine what a babe magnet he must be! And with ten thousand posts on Writingforums.org and a Gandalf fetish, what woman wouldnt want to be impregnated by such a specimen? Gosh, the women in MA are so lucky!
So this guy thinks he can say to a respected published author: “You have been given considerable latitude” and “I strongly suggest you quit while you are ahead, i.e. not infracted.”
Um, I did quit while I was ahead dude – and you are on the “Real Deal” Internet Saddoes list! Enjoy!
