Greg the Explorer: Someone out there is copying me!

I thought there was only one of me, that I was an original one of a kind.  No, there is another Greg the Explorer who very cleverly drops the ‘the’ to avoid copyright issues.  Drat and dagnabit, what kind of evil criminal mastermind is this?

Watch this video and it will become clear that although I must hate him for his duplicity – Greg the Explorers are in fact geniousesessss!

  1. And manipulating posts I see.

    Which is pretty rich given the thousands of times I’ve been falsely accused by Steve for claiming things which I didn’t write.

    And I’m not one to go crying off to moderators. I’m not a big girls blouse nor do I shrink from being told off. Sure I’ve written stuff I wish I didn’t but I don’t have the luxury of going back and changing what I write.

    But I’ll be stuffed if I’m going to let people walk all over me.

  2. You’ve been encouraged by me many times over to ask Greg for authoring rights, Bones, but you haven’t bothered to sort yourself out.

    Send him an email and he will set you up as an author.

    Then you will have ‘equal rights’ with posters.

    By the way, I don’t know how wazza managed to add a comment on that thread. If I knew how I would have rebutted your last comment which was an outright fabrication, and, the thing is, you know that it was a blatant inaccuracy, so don’t come crying about it. You ask for it every time.

    I asked you countless times to refrain from being so obnoxious, but you carried on like a pork chop, so I decided you should cop some treatment in kind. Now you’re in tears. Have a hanky.

    Get authoring rights and you will be able to put up your own posts and moderate your own threads.

    As Greg says, it would help if you would learn to play nicer.

  3. If I had a dollar for every fabrication, strawman or ad hom you posted, I’d be a rich man.

    In tears – no. Show me a post where I have cried out for moderation in the couple of years I’ve been here. A hanky is what you have required at times.

    The danger here is that we have a moderator who’s desperate to always have the last word.

    I don’t have nor do I seek the ability to change people’s posts.

    I’m sure you’d be impressed if I changed yours.

  4. you know that it was a blatant inaccuracy

    I was carrying it through to it’s logical conclusion.

    You believe an open policy towards boat people causes deaths.

    I and many Christians such as the Social Justice Boards of the Catholic, Anglican and Uniting churches believe in an open policy.

    What is the logical progression of that?

    That you didn’t like where that logical progression leads is your problem.

  5. Some people just can’t let things rest..

    Forgive me, but if you want a chuckle, listen to that sad violin music while you read the posts below ….

    The lyrics and music go pretty well together!

    ….. manipulating posts I see.

    If you’re going to delete comments at least be consistent as you are clearly not.

    All we need is a good actor to say the lines emotionally and we’d have a great movie scene. Mel Gibson with a Scottish accent?

    Calm down Bones.
    There are now three people asking you to just play nice.

  6. Bones, I just encouraged you to gain authoring rights from Greg. I’m being nice to you, because it’s a huge risk if you are going to carry on like this.

    But this is funny…

    Steve: “You know that it was a blatant inaccuracy…”

    Bones: “I was carrying it through to it’s logical conclusion.”

    The logical conclusion of a blatant inaccuracy is always defective reason. If you begin with a wrong premise you will end with a mistaken proposition.

    I think Greg is asking that we actually do come to a conclusion with this discussion.

    Agree, at least, to disagree and take it up on another day. Bury the hatchet.

  7. Steve changed Bones’ last post to try and rebut it.

    Steve usually gets the last word on every post, because he just persists past the time when everyone has given up. I thought it would be nice if I had the last word for once.

  8. Man, it’s like we’re all married to each other…..or still in high school….?

    Please Greg and/or Steve, let Wazza or Bones have the last comment in a post and then close it. It seems very important to them.

    Greg, I really have to hand it to you. You have a great capacity for fairness, and the ability to forgive and not hold grudges. No malice.

    Don’t see that very often these days.

    I really think Bones should take up the offer of authorship.

    Anyway, I’m starting to hear sad violin music all the time now. lol

  9. I did not alter a single word Bones wrote. It is still the same as Bones wrote it. I added a rebuttal.

    I disarmed a claim Bones made that I considered refugees to be ‘bastards’. I think that was a reasonable action to take. I would have left it had he signed off with something less disingenuous.

    I had no issue with letting wazza have the last word. He didn’t lie about me. He just gave an opinion, which may have some validity.

  10. Q – the way I have lived my life at times has required the greatest amount of forgiveness of me…I can’t not forgive people and move on (though sometimes i need to be reminded to do so…people like you are instrumental in my life Q). If I were to be held to account for every word and action I could never live a satisfying life, the grace that has been shown me i try to show to others…though as I’ve said, that is clouded by my still ever present anger issues!

  11. Being totally serious Greg. You’re a very soft-hearted guy, and the way you can put things behind you is pretty amazing.

    People have talked in the past about whether people are Christians or not. To me it’s obvious that somewhere back there (and maybe it was in your pentecostal/fundamentalist days), you met Jesus. (Not wanting to start a debate about baptism and when people are born again etc).

    But to me a real proof of the new life is someone who genuinely has remorse over sin, but then the big one is forgiveness. Joyce Meyer (who people don’t like), says that wherever she goes in the world without fail, over 80% of the Christian audience admit to unforgiveness. And for me mixing with ministers shocked me as a youngster finding out how many ministers (yes, pentecostals) bear grudges and won’t talk to other ministers. It’s amazing how so many people just can’t forgive. But then probably why Jesus talked about it so much.

    That’s why the Lord’s Prayer may not last in parliament, but it can be prayed as in everyday.

    But back to you. I’ve been incredibly impressed with the way you could relate to me given the past exchanges. It shows a huge heart and the reality of forgiveness in your life.

    Just sayin

  12. I have now removed my comments from Bones’ comment on ‘The Chaos’ etc thread, so now Bones and wazza have the last words, which are both critical of me. You can stop the crying now.

  13. By the way. How can anyone foretell if their’s is going to be the last word on a blog thread?

    I thought blogs were about comments and discussion on the post.

    Perhaps wazza and Bones could indicate if they want their latest comment to be the last and then we can make a decision about whether we will comply.
