please would alex consider amending the subscription page on the site
to include the following.

Rhizome Raw;
Before joining the following list please make sure you have either:

* a good mail filtering programme with an auto-delete function
* a herculean like finger to hit the delete key repeatedly
* and/or good insurance against repetitive strain injury from said
action
* an in-box the size of a small european country
* no interest in discussing net art at all because you won't get a word
in bloody edgeways.

i find myself longing for the 'art is dead' debate, it may have been
circular, irrelevant and annoying but at least it has some content....

oh do please drop it

    art-relevant content and what isn't?

    Why don't you tell us again, how you create and destroy
    worlds at a whim because you're an artist, Ivan Pope?
    You never addressed that before--and that's a rather
    'schoolyardish' masturbatory view on art.

    Funny how when challenged about that you don't reply,
    and instead you run around lists trying little irrelevnt
    jabs at me.

    xoxoxo

    Right. Feeling threatened? can't stand the idea that perhaps
    somebody has valid understanding about things? Absolute?
    haven't claimed anything of the sort. Moreso, authority
    and proper self-autonomy to various degrees belongs
    to any human who wishes it and does the appropriate efforts.

    Very nice attempt at distortion of what I'm doing,
    but unfortunately invalid.

    As for rhizome: maybe you, in your new capacity should
    do something about lessening the posturing, sarcastic
    knee-jerks and similar idiocy passed on as cleverness--
    starting with yourself?

    XO + best wishes in your endeavour
  • D42 Kandinskij | Mon Sep 9th 2002 1 a.m.
    And while you're at it, learn to distinguish between valid
    authority and what that means (sorry, I'm afraid that'll be
    a lot of work) and childish flippant dictatorial behavior.

    I certainly haven't prevented, forced or coerced anyone
    from or into anything: yet I do have a very good reason
    to say the things I do.

    You have 'diversions'--not a life.
    If you're attempting to imply I don't have a life--you're sorely
    mistaken.

    Sorry baby--no bully-boy tactics here.
    Don't confuse my lack of tolerance of sub-human behavior
    with bully-tactics.

    > moan about you clogging up my inbox with your trolling

    Hardly trolling, baby. I don't force anyone to write to me--
    I certainly didn't make you write in response to me.
    My responses to your idiocies do not qualify as 'trolling'.

    > only to get a more emails in return.

    The horror!

    > I would like to hear what you have to say -

    It certainly applies to the lot of you.

    > I just wish you'd use a fraction of the emails to do it and quit the

    Sorry dear--don't confuse force with aggression.
    Humans were not made to be weak--and I don't intend to be weak.
    Preach your weakling pacifism elsewhere :)

    > btw i'll work on my flippancy if you work on your humour...

    My humor is here all along, love. It's too bad you all miss it.
    maybe you wouldn't perceive energy as an 'aggressive threat'
    and getso easily offended.

    If you're implying to start participating at the
    knee-jerk defensive posture that passes on as humor
    here--no thank you.

    I certainly do work on my humor--and sarcasm, irony,
    and fearful cackling willnever be part of my 'repertoire'.

    Aw. Weren't you going to ignore me baby?
    Or we do 'back-handed' hunting now?

    I <heart> peaceful artists. The ones who are so self-righteous
    in their denial of their destructive behavior, you couldn't wake them up
    with 3 world wars simultaneously.

    Carry on that righteous crusade Pall.
