I don't lack friends. I have plenty. But I wasn't a "fake" or an "apologist" or a "sock puppet" until today. I also didn't know that Ray is mentally ill, until today. In fact, I didn't know that anyone else thought Ray was mentally ill, until today. I also wasn't certain that Kishkumen was Doctor Scratch, until today. I'm still not certain. But it sure looks like it to me, just based on the old threads I read and the fact that they both seemed like the same person to me from the time I started following this board.
I also didn't know it was forbidden to have such terrible thoughts---until today.
Are there any other "forbidden thoughts" that I should know about?
Nothing is verboten. Just be prepared to be treated like an asshole when you take an offensive stance towards a much-loved and much-respected poster.
In all honesty, I had no idea that believing Doctor Scratch is Kishkumen's sock puppet qualifies as "an offensive stance
I assume it's Kishkumen you're talking about, since he's the one who's acting offended. Scratch has been pretty much invisible. I saw he started a thread yesterday that is typical FARMS intrigue stuff. It's like he's just blind, deaf, and dumb to the fact that it is something like high crimes and treason to be accused of being him.
It seems kind of strange, though, since Kishkumen and Doctor Scratch are normally falling all over themselves to pat each other on the back for things they write in their posts. Every once in a while they do a little dance where they criticize the other guy, just to keep things "honest", I guess. On occasion Gadianton appears. His posts very often make me laugh the most. Then they all laugh it up and everything goes back to normal. They're like a tag team. I don't think it's so strange that someone might think they're the same person. The threads I read that Ray posted showed how other people have assumed the same thing. I can see why they might have concluded what they did.
You seem to be telling me, basically, that I can believe that kind of false doctrine in private, but I'm not permitted to say it in public on this message board, otherwise I am liable to be subjected to a kind of group punishment exercise until I get my mind right.
Have I got it about right?
