Accusation!

I have been accused of breaking the day's covenant of civility.

From the comments some creature calling him or herself mike the greek calls us liars and cheats.

mike the greek said...
Sorry... you guys lost. PSA posted the first obscene comment 28 minutes after this post. It's been since removed.

I thought you never lied, CC?

12:50 PM

He compounds his claims by demanding some form of monetary reward...

mike the greek said...
CC,

Nice try... You people couldn't hold on for a full 30 minutes. Check your log...

And personally, you've proven yourself as a liar. Care to send me my reward money? I think it was $750, was it not?

1:32 PM


mike the greek, there is indeed a lie being perpetrated and you are the author of that lie. I have neither made an obscene comment nor have I removed a comment, obscene or otherwise. In point of fact, since I joined this blog I have had occasion to remove exactly one comment that I made from the site and that was an accidental double post. I suggest you either produce evidence to support your claim or you can issue a prompt and complete apology. Nothing else will be satisfactory.

I did not break the challenge, I did not remove a comment and I will not be called a liar by a drive-by miscreant. I shall expect your apology forthwith.

Otherwise pistols at dawn, you paltry, dishonest poltroon. May we have the names of your seconds?

Red Tory said...

As silly as I think this exercise is, I'll give you folks points for admirable restraint. It's amusing to think what's going to follow on tomorrow...

Well I am quite serious in expecting an apology. I suspect that mike the greek is a sock puppet for one of the usual suspects, the blogger profile isn't attached to a site and has a grand total of 47 views. That tells me that mike the greek was likely created for the sole purpose of nettling. Regardless, the claim is false. I have not broken the challenge and I certainly have more than enough restraint to see the day through without straying from the path of civility.

mike the greek, i repeat my demand, i expect an apology for your false claim against my integrity.

Prole said...

Perhaps, and perchance, Mike the Greek is demanding non-existent prize money because he/she is in the same predicament as Miss Kathy Shadle? I will withold any further comment on said predicament and related attempted extortion until after midnight.

Ta ta!

Sean S. said...

he is a regular here in Saskatchewan blog circles, mostly stirring the pot. I would pay no attention unless he actually produces the proof, which he won't.

pretty shaved ape said...

thank you sean s. for the note of edification. i can guarantee that he will not produce proof because there is no post or comment to produce. his claim is false. i await his apology.

Saskboy said...

John Gormley often speaks of Mike the Greek.

Sparky said...

The fact that a 'rightie' lied in the very comment thread regarding the challenge of 'lefties have an easier time not swearing than righties have in not lieing' wasn't surprising in the least bit.
Nicely done, Mikey! Keep it up!

Pale said...

I am confused....(often happens)
I see that occasional comments have been removed by the author....Is it possible to remove that notification as well?

I doubt an apology will ever happen...Someone was simply stirring the pot, with no ingredients.

Sparky said...

I don't have a 'blogger' blog (so I'm not vered in the intracacies of the blogger software), but when a comment is removed, doesn't it state that 'this comment was removed by the administrator' or 'removed by the author'?
Funny how I don't see one of those in the first 28 minutes of that particular comment thread, isn't it?
Try again Mikey?

Sparky said...

(or what pale said)

CC said...

Sparky:

Reasonable logic, but it wouldn't apply to PSA. When regular commenters delete their comments, the nullified comment remains, labelled "Deleted by the author." However, as a CC blogger, I believe PSA has the ability to "permanently" remove a comment so that there is no trace of it left.

NOTE: I am, in no way, suggesting that's what happened here; I'm only pointing out that a defense based on your observation wouldn't necessarily be valid.

In any event, PSA has clearly denied doing any such thing and I'm tempted to believe his version of events, for obvious reasons.

pretty shaved ape said...

I see that mike the greek has taken a scamper and provided neither apology nor proof. No great surprise there. As for deletions and so forth, from what I can tell Sparky, if I comment on a post here, I can delete it. Just as you can delete your own comment by clicking the little garbage can icon. I also have the ability to delete the posts of other commenters but only from posts where I am the author. Thus I can delete anyone on this thread but not on a post authored by either CC or the loverly LuLu. I don't believe I can strike all evidence of a comment either by myself or by another writer. Of course I could be wrong but that would be because I am not expert in the manipulation of posts and comments. Regardless, I haven't deleted a word and I still await the apology that I am due.

Sparky said...

For the record--I have been actively watching the fun here at Chez CC to see how this challenge would unfold and I didn't see any type of profane post from PSA during the days festivites.
Me thinks Mikey is proving a crystal clear example of this blogging challenge.
Whether he lied purposely to provoke a vulgar reaction from the authors/commentors on this blog, or for whatever other reason, he just proved it nicely.

Zorpheous said...

You know, Mike the Greek fails to display any proof. you will note that he can't even give a description of the alleged transgression by SPA. Seems to me he is just here to attempt to stir the pot and to get someone to call him a nuaghty name or something.

Nope, just some vague reference to a comment or post made by PSA and nothing more. Sad, very sad!

Mike The Greek said...

Hey CC, I'll apologize...

Send me a name and and address and I'll send you a notarized apology...

Until that time, you're a liar!

Cameron Campbell said...

Is mike the greek a sock puppet for the idiot who turned down the James Bow mediated thingy earlier this month?

Send me a name and and address and I'll send you a notarized apology...
And the shoe drops.

Ti-Guy said...

And the shoe drops.

I'd say.

Never eat at place called Mom's
Never play cards with a man named Doc.
Never book a bet with someone called 'The Greek'

Well there we have it, Mike The Greek admits he owes Canadian Cynic an apology. See Mike, you should never throw around unwarranted accusations without proof and then lie about it, because in the end you will have to say your sorry.

Don't worry Mike, it is character building experience for you, and you need all the building you can get.

Red Tory said...

Cameron — Sure sounds like it, doesn't it? Arrogant grandstanding combined with feeble accusations backed by no evidence and a remarkably poor and dim-witted follow-up to boot... Yep, the telltale hallmarks (or sh*tstains) of the doughy mullet-top are all there.

the rev. paperboy said...

"The Doughy Mullet-top"

sounds like something they would profile on Hinterlands Who's Who
