At first I thought of just letting this thing pass, especially since I feel this “thing” is complete nonsense that will be buried and forgotten in the next few days. However, there have been a few friends who contacted me directly to ask “what’s the story” and although my closer circle of friends already knew about this, I figure I’ll just write the story here, get it all out in the open, and then put this nonsense past me. Hope after you read the last line in this post, you will understand what went on and quit asking me what, why, when, where and how.
However, the saying “When you’re on top, there will always be those who would pull you down” is true.
I should’ve learned the lesson when it happened to a close friend of mine who was also nominated in MITBCA in another category. Yet, my stubborn and competitive nature urged me to keep on going and with encouragement from that same friend, I tried what I could to get to the top of the category. I even managed to convince my brothers to help me with their gamers network and all. LOL! Now I owed my brothers quite a bit.
I guess what irritates me with this whole situation is the issue only came up a couple hours before the voting ends at MITBCA’s website (1st May). Somebody with the IP address 188.8.131.52 left a comment at my category’s runner’s up blog posing as me and used my blog address to condemn her. Look, I don’t do this kinda shit OK? Seriously, I have no time for this kinda shit. I have to do 3 things at once every day. I have 2 jobs and I study. Do you think you can do 3 things in 24 hours? Try it and tell me.
So, it pisses me off that I have to clean up other people’s shit by having to visit the runner’s up’s blog and making sure she knows the poser is not me. Then, what’s funnier is the poser left a comment at my blog too (it was in moderation) as the runner’s up, trying to scare me about the increase of my vote. Sorry, I guess you never had the gamer’s network to help increase your votes before, if not you would understand. Too bad. What’s FUNNY is the time this so-called poser left the comments. It was the time when my blog have just taken over the first place. LOL!
Photo below was taken at 12.14am (2nd May), 2 hours after the comment was left at my blog and 15 minutes after voting ends.
I know that none of my friends and connections are involved in this. I know it because I know the kinda people my friends are. I know they wouldn’t care a fit that I get 107 votes in 1 hour but what they would do is they would support me and garner more votes for my blog too. You see, I am very very VERY selective of people I make friends with. So I know them. I KNOW. Plus, my friends are all busy people. Do you think they have all the time in the world to leave nasty comments at people’s blogs and try to pit people against each other?
Then, the next day (2nd May) when I was busy outside scouting places for my new project and buying things for my shop, another friend texted me and informed that the poser left another comment at another blogger’s blog (which is the runner’s up’s good friend). I have no idea why this poser is doing this and what she/he is trying to get from all this.
- Think about it. The MITBCA competition has ended so why continue this crap again? Maybe to taint the name of my blog? Hmm.. Just because I won this once? How about those people who have won awards many times before me? Why not taint the name of their blogs? Where was the poser when that was happening? (I’m assuming this poser is someone none of us knew).
- Think about it again. If ever, (touch wood!) in a universe where donkeys and pigs can actually fly, this was done by my own friends, why would they pose as me and leave nasty comments between me, the runner’s up and the runner’s up’s friend? If my friend WAS my supporter, I can understand if he/she leave nasty comments at other people’s blog as somebody else but what would he/she gain by leaving nasty comments as me? Not only will that reduce my popularity (which is not what a supporter would want) but also will not fulfill any objective AT ALL.
- Investigate properly before writing a blog post that clearly shows my name (even if it was written by a poser) and tainting my name. Use your brain.
Come on, all of you go to school, use your brain God gave you.
Truthfully, I think there’s a lot more happening to this than just about the blog awards. Maybe nobody realize this and sadly, I was thrown in the middle of it at the wrong time. Heck, maybe if I was nominated in other category, none of this would happen. Who knows? Only God knows why some people pose as other people to gain miniscule support.
We’re now at the last line. Hope you understood what I wrote. No more nonsense and please, no more “private messaging” me ok.
