Whoah now dude. Hang on there. I've read your post and, looking at the situation from your perspective, I can only conclude you've decided to deliberately make a mountain out a molehill.
Mr March wrote:I know nothing about Asahiya Bookstore in NYC nor was I aware you registered multiple accounts at AN.
Yeah. So? Why would you even care?
Mr March wrote:All I knew was you wanted a place to sell, I offered help and next thing I knew you're posting boycott topics on AN.
So what? What does one have to do with the other?
Mr March wrote:I'm responsible for leading you to AN.
I have four reactions to that sentence.
1. "Responsible"? You act as if something awful has happened. Calm down.
2. Not that there's anything for anyone to be "responsible for" here, but consider this: You are not more responsible for my actions, buddy. By the same token, I am not responsbile for yours. Neither of us -- not you, not I -- is the center of the universe.
3. Who cares who lead who to what? What difference does it make if you pointed me towards AN, or if I found it via Google, or if I saw an ad in a DVD insert? What does this have to do with anything?
4. I didn't use your name at all on the site. Do you think I did? Why would I do that? I don't even know who you are, man.
Mr March wrote:Even if I was aware of the situation at Asahiya, why assume I would agree with your position?
I didn't assume anything. I didn't give your opinion a moment's consideration. You know why? Because it has nothing to do with you.
Mr March wrote:Or at the very least, that I'd want to be involved in any way?
Dude! You're NOT involved.
Mr March wrote:Luckily, this shouldn't be a big deal for me at AN.
What the heck are you even talking about? I can't figure out why you think this somehow involves you personally.
Mr March wrote:I also think most people wouldn't blame me for my unwitting role in your boycott, whether they agree with you or not.
Whaaaaaaa? (scratches head) Bro, I didn't give you any "role in my boycott". You have no role in it at all, be it witting, unwitting, or even half-witting. No role. None.
Mr March wrote:But you yourself didn't know any of this when you posted this topic here at gearsonline.
I didn't know any of what? Seriously, March, I don't get what this is even about. It's all totally out of left field -- the left field of the Pleiades.
Mr March wrote:I don't blame you for wanting to run a boycott now that I understand your position after the fact;
Mr March wrote:I might have even agreed, if given the choice.
Huh? What was I supposed to be giving you a choice of?
...Wait a minute...
Mr March wrote:But I wasn't given a choice.
(blinks in amazement)
Are you saying I was supposed to seek your approval
before posting on the site, simply because you recommended it to me??? March, surely you can't think that.
Mr March wrote:You totally misrepresented yourself
No I didn't. What makes you say that I misrepresented myself?
Did I misrepresent myself by having two different names on the site? No. My two names were each used for ONE thread, and each one was 100% unrelated to the other. How is that such a terrible thing to do?
Did I misrepresent myself by saying here that I wanted to post about selling at AN, and then ALSO posted about my Asahiya problem? No. That can't be it, because I did
post about selling on AN. My other post about Asahiya was unrelated to my sale post, and unrelated to you as well.
March, man, since when is any of this your business? Do you own AnimeNation or something?
Mr March wrote:and involved me without my consent.
(throws up arms) How did I involve you? I didn't involve you! How can you possibly think I involved you? What is this???
Mr March wrote:That was a lousy thing to do.
No. It wasn't. However, accusing me of being inconsiderate, manipulative, and a liar... That's pretty lousy. Especially when it's 100% groundless.
