I am very sure you are not involved in any livlihood way with the literary scene.
I have not made an attack, let alone a petty one - you really dont like being called out, do you Sacha?
My mana stands.
Your's - in my eyes (which also means a rather large number of other people who read whatever I write) - is, rather, diminished.
Islander, are you OK?
Fine, good Lilith- but I get really pissed off with the officiousness of non-participants like Sacha-who knows a lot -but knows buggerall about the literary scene- and seems to want to suggest he knows a lot about that scene. Sacha - I've around that part of my life for OVER 50 YEARS--00-
This is all saying far more about you than about me. Perhaps read back over what has been said and have another think about it.
SACHA- I DONT NEED TO. YOU DO.
ANYWAY, I WILL NOT RESPOND, EVER AGAIN, TO ANY POST BY YOU, EVER AGAIN.Byebye forever.
O look! The computer did it for me!
I didnt have to say “go away cretin” 0-this marvellous Apple thing made my message cps! Cool! Well, a lot of it-
And, there are some people on PAS who are valuable – but really up themselves.
And I will be enjoying a holiday from the place. Friends have my email.
Nightyra for a long time, to you other creeps-Islander.

A deeper sigh. Time to kiss and make up?
