My apologies

Postby JMISBEST » Fri May 10, 2019 1:17 am

I must apologise on another behalf

I've been looking after a ill relative who defied odds worse then getting a couple of grand on the lotto by living but I've been unable to even look over this site since shortly after my 1st Uber Race post and learnt only 100 odd minutes ago that my younger brother has taken great fun, glee and pleasure is masquerading as me and completely ruining my once good name on this great site ran by great people by putting in my name complete and utter trash, garbage and BS. So from now on it'll only be stuff that I'm actually doing and not my brother trying to make me look as big a idiot as he. Again apologies on his behalf, hoping to post 100% accurate and honest stuff. Also tell me what I've missed over the last few years?. Please

Sounds like something your brother would post...

I was surprised by the content of posts here under the JMISBEST name as I have seen that name used on another forum with a much more mature and coherent writing style. Your explanation of the situation makes sense to me. Thank you for setting the record straight.

It is truly astounding that your brother could have so perfectly copied your distinctive writing style. The run-ons, merciless disregard for grammar or readability and general incoherence were all spot on. Case in point: I tried to read your Legends questions and dislocated my brain.

You're saying this was someone else before and now it's you writing in exactly the same manner. Presumably the whole business about your friends setting you up by asking dumb questions was also him?

Well, no matter whoever wrote that stuff before... How about you make your posts a little more coherent? White space is good. Short sentences are also good.

I got the distinct impression that whomever was writing that stuff posted under your name wasn't taking any notice of the answers. That's disrespectful of the people who took the time to answer. So whether this impersonation really happened or not, could you try to make what you write a little more intelligible, and to take note of the answers. It seemed as if 'JMISBEST' (whether that was you or someone else) was just flinging out questions then moving on to another without taking note of the answer. Which resulted in a repeat of the same sort of question, made difficult to answer for the same reason.

So now you've declared none of that was you, how about not behaving like the imposter who was trying to make you look stupid?

By all means ask questions but make them intelligible, and take note of the answers. Please.

Remember the early days of RuneQuest? How we gradually became aware that as well as Dark Trolls and Trollkin there were Great Trolls and Mistress Race Trolls?

I think there may be a new species...

I understand perfectly. You think it's amusing to abuse the goodwill of helpful people.

It seems your younger brother can also write in the incoherent style of your deathbed gas mask buddy. So that makes two people.
In addition your friends are having you ask stupid, meaningless questions to amuse themselves and waste the time of people on the board who try and offer their help and experience to you, despite having to go to a great deal of trouble parsing the incoherent mess of your posts.

Some suggestions:

How about you make an effort and ask questions in standard english for a bit, as a courtesy to the people you are asking for help and opinions from? It is good manners to ask for help in a clear and concise way.

Maybe change your password so your ignorant younger brother can't make your account name waste even more time?

How about pausing before writing up a stream of consciousness paragraph about an excel spreadsheet driven game of "roll on the Dilletante portfolio table? If the answer you are seeking involves something with a budget bigger than a billion credits it is likely way outside the realms of any standard game or group of players.

Sorry about my way of putting it, Grammar was the subject at School I wasn't at least very good at. The problem is I gave my word of honour on The Death Bed of A Gramma Teacher and science class assistant who guaranteed he'd be dead in A Week tops by by giving me the only remaining mask in A Gas Experiment related Accident in The Science Room and to honour his memory not once in more then 22 years have I doing even 1 full sentence of Gramma in anyway other then the unique 1 he and I shared and now only I know and use, Sorry but it was A Vow of Honor on the death bed of a dying man who guaranteed he would die to guarantee I'd live. Please understand
I for one want to tip my cap to JMISBEST. The above statement is absolutely his best work.
