ANB Enters Round 2 of the Aniblog Tournament — aka: Drama Part 2

So, the blog enters the 2nd round of the Aniblog tournament with me up against Mistakes of Youth. The other card has Drastic My Anime Blog up against GAR GAR Stegosaurus so be sure to vote in both if you are of a mind to do so. ^_^

For this post, I hadn’t planned on saying anything about the “drama” of the last round. I noticed that the header text for Aniblog’s site says, “Your vote should be based on serious issues. Like the bloggers opinion on Tenchi Muyo,” mocking the person who raised all kinds of grief about me last round. Since the drama started, I’ve had people ask me what this guy’s beef is against me. Finally, Taco’s Rule and Frank encouraged me to say something after receiving this post from Psycho, the cyber stalker who has obsessed over me for years and the person behind the Aniblog Tournament drama.

You may have gotten away with ballot stuffing last time, you fucking scam artist, but this time real fans will make sure your pathetic promo blog goes down in flames. Your fat cat paymasters can’t buy you true popularity, you goddamned Judas. Real fans can detect the foul stench of your ASTROturfing no matter how hard you try to cover it up, you fucking imbecile. The truth can’t be hidden with money and lies, you gluttonous fatass. Fuck you and that goddamned megaturd you worship.

This rant is pretty typical except that he didn’t mention “OVA 3,” “Kajishima,” or reference “Isekai no Seikishi Monogatari.” Well, he has to change up his rants in minor ways since he’s never sure if I read them or not (as if my reading his tripe will change anything). He makes sure to send rants daily, sometimes more frequently, all in some desperate attempt to get at me from the relative safety of anonymity.

So, I decided to address this issue publicly (and give Psycho his multiple orgasm with public acknowledgment) as a tale of caution to my fellow bloggers.

Psycho’s rants against me started some six years ago (best reckoning) when Tenchi Muyo! Ryo-ohki OVA 3 came out. Back then, I wasn’t the sole target, but various members of the Ayeka Fan Club, a Tenchi Muyo! fan site and forum, were targeted. The attacks were random and we all assumed this to be the work of some troll who may or may not even be a fan of Tenchi Muyo! Ryo-ohko. With OVA 3’s completion, some fans went on to other things because they didn’t like OVA 3. The rest of us who liked it, myself included, began finding other things to enjoy as the years passed as there wasn’t much left that we wanted to say about our favorite anime, the canon Tenchi Muyo! series.


Soon after I started this blog, Psycho returned to start hammering me. Now, keep in mind that when I started this blog, OVA 3 had ended over a year before in Japan and had already been released in the U.S. to good sales according to FUNimation. In addition to the crime of liking OVA 3 despite its many problems, the thing that really seems to set off Psycho is that FUNimation came to me and made me a moderator of their forum (eventually promoting me to admin status). Since then, Psycho has spent over three years with nearly non-stop, daily, froth-filled ravings.

Here’s were the “scary” stuff comes into play. It would be one thing if Psycho were just posting his insane diatribes. However, he made it clear to us that he was actively looking me up on the Internet and apparently spending a great deal of time doing so. Some of his rants would specifically reference something I said on some obscure blog, forum, news site, etc. and those remarks were sometimes months old. At times, he’s registered himself as me on certain forums to attack me. At other times, he’s managed to find wiki-sites where for some reason a wiki entry was made about me and then graffiti them with insults. If I don’t notice this right away (because having a real life, I’ve got better things to do then spend my entire day on the Internet stalking myself), he’d make sure to try to point out his handiwork to me, including his work at Aniblog’s site. He’ll register on forums with user-ID’s that are supposed to insult me such as “ANB_IS_A_FAGGOT” or the like because such things will clearly make me close down my blog and start over.

Finally, he’s worked at trying to uncover personal information about the real me which I’ve not actively shared. More than anything else, it is this last bit that caused me to go agree to the insistence of friends and family and report this all to law enforcement and have a case file opened with IC3 after a talk with the FBI. All of the rants from the last three years that we’ve archived were turned over to them, complete with the exact time-date of the rant posting. Every day, we send the latest rant, including the one above. What they do about it remains to be seen.

While it is clear that Psycho has a screw loose, since normal people and even trolls don’t go on ad nauseam for years attacking someone over an anime, a person that dedicated to their hatred of me is dedicated enough to find out where I live to try to silence me for good. Thus I warn my fellow bloggers to be VERY careful to not let your personal information out. Once it is out, it is pretty much out for life and a dedicated psycho like the one I have could find it and do who knows what with it.


Anyway, regarding the Aniblog tournament, Psycho left me a message of sorts when round one ended by stuffing the ballot in my favor. Since I’d made public mention that he would do this against me, Psycho wanted to tell me that he could have caused me to lose by a wide margin. After all, there are hundreds of proxies he can and does use to hide himself, and he can cast a vote for “truth” hundreds of times as a result (because an anime is the most important thing in the entire universe). However, to do so at the end of the tournament would likely have caused all his votes against me to be thrown out. Thus, he votes for me, then publicly says that I did it in fear of him. Whatever.

I guess it is too much to let things go naturally and see how far I might go. Whether I win or lose the tournament doesn’t matter to me but it obviously does matter to Psycho. After all, the more evidence he sees of my blog’s growth, the louder he barks.

So, for what it is worth, that’s the story behind the drama. It is amazing that there are people like this out there, obsessing over a nobody like me for years, all because of an anime title. Well, there are murderers, rapist, robbers, child molesters, etc. who live and walk among us, pretending to be reasonable in public but in private, are raving psychos. So hopefully, people reading this post will be careful with what they do on their blogs, forums, etc. because you never know who could be reading what you write. ^_^;

    Y’know, I recently came upon an article in Consumer Reports magazine about how to alter Facebook accounts so that our personal information is very limited. It’s sad but the internet is a very double edged sword. A lot of us put a lot of time building “cyber identities” to get ourselves noticed that we don’t realize the consequences in doing so. Sorry to hear you had to go through this dude but it’s a reminder that there are some people out there who seriously need to get a hobby and not focus so much on their existence on the internet.

    In other news, I too, LOVE Tenchi OAV 3. Maybe it’s because so much of the franchise has been diluted over the years but I’m very fond of all the episodes and I do hope there is an OAV 4 on the horizon.

  3. TK says:

    they changed the header text to something else now

  4. RP says:

    6 years… wow. I don’t even know what to say. that’s scary.

  5. BlackSun88 says:

    indeed, just be true to urself and do what u think is correct. you know you have faithful readers to support u

  6. arimareiji says:

    @O-chan: You’ll catch me advocating those “security” devices at airports that make naked pictures of people (to keep them safe, you know) before you’ll catch me putting personal info in a facebook account, for pretty much the reasons ANB specified.

    Or to put it another way, I think the Daniella Cicarelli case is a pretty good case in point for what the Internet as evolved to. She eventually lost her court case when it was ruled bad faith to have sex on a public beach and then sue YouTube (who were themselves trying to remove the videos for ToS reasons) for invasion of privacy when people uploaded videos of it. In what I think is a delicious irony, her argument of having any expectation of privacy on a public beach is probably more reasonable than having any expectation of privacy on the Internet.

    Ironic that what started out as the latest free uncharted territory, like the New World or the Wild West, is turning into a realm where you have to watch what you say more carefully than a 1950s dissident in the USSR (or the US with HUAC), lest it come back to bite you in the tail end.

    I wonder if it makes Psycho feel good to know that he’s acting the part of Senator McCarthy?

    Nice job bearing false witness yet again, you goddamned Judas. Don’t think this little sympathy con is going to carry your pathetic promo blog into the next round, you greedy fag. People aren’t stupid and your desperation is showing, you gluttonous fatass. Fuck you, fuck your false god wrinkle-dick Kajishima, and fuck your beloved megaturd OVA 3.

  8. Yumeka says:

    That’s quite a story 0_o I seriously don’t understand people like that. What kind of upbringing/experiences could he have had in life that would make him like that? I’ve had a few people like that, but they never went further than one or two comments or e-mails.

    Oh well, I hope one of these days he leaves you alone for good.

  9. James says:

    Hey Mr. Anonymous, If ANB is the true villian here, then why don’t you identify yourself. And we don’t care how evil you say he is, for we are his followers, through and through. So far, your foul language hasn’t helped your point. Your the one who is gaining sympathy. I can’t find half the stuff you called him in the dictionary, and even it is there, it doesn’t apply here.

    ANB- you don’t have to delete his entry, We would like to more from this hideaway stalker.

  10. He uses names from time to time. Some of his favorites are “junior” and “arimareiji” but he’s used others too depending on the posting frequency of those actual people. Were this my blog, I’d disable all anonymous postings and force everyone to use a registered ID but ANB hasn’t wanted to do that.

  11. Kota-kun says:

    ok just have to say one thing..,WTF?!
    Arent u just a little bit queer, stalking someone who likes a Tench Muyo OVA! I mean, come on! Sure once or twice I understand, but 6 years just to give him all these negative comments about something that happened ages ago! I hate swearing on blogs and forums, but FUCK!! Move on! Everybody’s entitled to their own opinion! ANB likes the OVA, fine. Mr. Anonymous, who cant even put a real username online, you don’t like it, fine! You dont need to put down a person just because of an OVA!
    Dont worry ANB, you are doing the right thing by sending this to the FBI
    And Mr. Annonymous, whats life without going outside? Get of your house, get some fresh air, stop and think, What have I been missing these past 6 years of my life?
    Oh and good look with the Aniblog tourney! Gambatte!

  12. James says:

    Hey, ANB I had another comment before the one you just posted for me, did you not want to post it?
    I said something like Mr. Anonymous being sadder then the actual online predators.

    I suggest we hire Lady Tokimi to find this scum bag, then let the public execution begin. First we’ll punch and throw him/her around lot a hot potato. Second, cut and open every part of his skin, then dump him in alcohol. Not only will it burn the pain away, but then we’ll roast him/her in a pit of fire, but pull him out before we exhaust his oxygen. Finally, we take him to France 1890’s, and put him on the guillotine. The world will rejoice in it’s efforts of cleansing the Earth of such disgust. It will shock to society, with all its hardened criminals, to change their ways. If they do, well, they’d die as hero’s.

    Sorry if I went to far. I was enjoying it too much, not like it would happen. I’m hoping you give this the OK, ANB.

  13. ANB hasn’t been doing the blog today. Neither Taco’s Rule nor myself have seen another post from you so likely your comment got lost in the Google black hole. ANB reported this issue to Google some time back and they obviously haven’t fixed it yet. It is possible the comments may show up later. That has happened before.

  14. Anonymous says:

    Sure thing James, I’m going to identify myself when Astrofag goes out of his way to bear false witness against me, falsely claiming that I’ve made death threats against him and talking about how I’m looking to “silence him for good” in real life. Ask that fucking Judas how many times I’ve reiterated to him that I’ve never made any threats against him and that the only threat to his longevity is all the fat he’s stuffed full of, and his braindead choice to ASTROturf for pathetic crap at his promo blog instead of exercising a little.

    That paranoid genius still believes I’m a dangerous criminal out to kill him dead because he likes OVA 3. The reason I sometimes look shit up on him on Google is because I want to have some variety in my posts, something that idiot with his never-ending repetitive cultist propaganda year in, year out has never thought of. How the fuck does this great genius think I’d be able to get access to his personal information that he “hasn’t actively shared”? An imbecile posts personal shit about himself on the Internet and I’m a criminal because I happened to see it? Fucking retard. That goddamned turncoat has time and time again tried to turn this into a criminal case against me because he just can’t stand someone calling him on his lies and making him look bad in front of his moronic pals. I’m a Christian and I hold all God-given life sacred, it hasn’t even crossed my mind to do harm to his person. I’ve told that fatbrain any number of times that what I hate is what he does, not him, but he keeps spreading malicious lies about me. For example that six years figure has been pulled right from between his fat butt-cheeks. That fucking apostate is no Christian, he revels in sin.

    If the idiot admitted the truth, I’d gladly stop this fight because it’s not much fun fighting a mental invalid whose lights aren’t on upstairs, but someone has to. All this is about the truth. I have no intention of stopping as long as this fucking turdburglar keeps taking his thirty pieces of silver from his fat cat paymasters and telling people what a brilliant masterpiece OVA 3 was and how his false god wrinkle-dick Kajishima can do no wrong, all so his greedy bosses can sell a few more copies of that horrible megaturd. No fucking fatass is going to tell me what to think about Tenchi and I’m sure as hell not letting the little shit brainwash unsuspecting fans with his repetitive cultist propaganda and lies. You people need to understand that this isn’t about what happened years ago, it’s about Astrofucker Lipidus still patrolling the Internet to this day and showing up with his idiotic sermons whenever people want to share their own ideas about Tenchi. The reason I started doing this in the first place was because that fucking fungus always showed up wherever I went to talk about Tenchi, and he still does.

    Fuck you, oh great genius of Tenchi, you greedy scam artist. You make me sick, you weed.

    To bad no one is going to see this post because deputy fag F.U. “Ratfag” Ostrich is going to intercept the truth for his greedy boss like always.

  15. Todd says:

    No matter how you try to couch this, there is no justification for this kind of rage over an anime and I dont care what he’s said or argued in the past or even today. I’ve argued with people over things before and even gotten angry. If someone really angers me, I don’t read what they write and I certainly don’t come out to their blog to rant about it. You sound like you purposefully seek out Astro to see what he’s saying anywhere on the Internet so you can counter it. Spare yourself and just walk away because what he says isn’t important.

    I also noticed you attacked Astro for saying you’d been attacking him for six years. Astro also wrote that you’ve been attacking him all the time over the last three years and you don’t deny that. If someone were attacking me nonstop for three years, I’d report them to the cops too and I wouldn’t wait three years to do it. I’d be thinking of obsessed killers like John Hinckley Jr.

    Finally, how can someone who claims to be a Christian have such an obscene, profanity-laced, hate filled post?

    i dont see anb talkin tenchi but he do talk negima all the time so why all the hate still

  17. Legal Beagle says:

    You mentioned the FBI and IC3 and that is good but have you also contacted your state’s version of the FBI? If not, do so. The person sending these communications to you is almost certainly in violation of harassment and/or stalking laws in your state. Most states have laws against this.

    I feel sorry for the anon dude. ANB has him so enslaved by his opinions that annon can’t move on with his life and has to make these pathetic calls for help. Anon, if you ever want to be set free and live a happy and productive life, you need to go cold turkey in your ANB exposure. This obsession over ANB is going to ruin your health and your life.

  19. Anonymous says:

    “No matter how you try to couch this, there is no justification for this kind of rage over an anime and I dont care what he’s said or argued in the past or even today.”

    I don’t care what you think if your thinking is tainted by the lies of that goddamned scam artist and I don’t need to answer to his brainwashed pals.

    “You sound like you purposefully seek out Astro to see what he’s saying anywhere on the Internet so you can counter it.”

    The reason I’m doing that is so that son of a bitch can get a taste of what it’s like to be constantly hounded by bullshit like he’s been hounding Tenchi fans for years. I don’t give a shit about what he’s saying but there’s a better than 50/50 chance that he’s going to say something stupid and I can call him on it. That cowardly fag keeps saying I’m looking for his shit all over the Internet to make it sound like an imminent danger to him, when all I’m doing is sometimes spending a few minutes on Google. That makes me a huge menace to society according to that fucking false witness.

    “I also noticed you attacked Astro for saying you’d been attacking him for six years. Astro also wrote that you’ve been attacking him all the time over the last three years and you don’t deny that. If someone were attacking me nonstop for three years, I’d report them to the cops too and I wouldn’t wait three years to do it. I’d be thinking of obsessed killers like John Hinckley Jr.”

    If you put together all the times I’ve had to suffer through Astrofucker’s repetitive cultist propaganda sermons, it’s still way more than the number of times I’ve called him on his bullshit over the last few years. It’s good to know that you think it’s OK for Lipidus to lie about what I’ve been doing so he can make it more sinister sounding. That son of a bitch has been patrolling every Tenchi discussion for more than six years and you’d be surprised to find there are many people who are glad I decided to go after him because they hate his ASTROturfing and lies as much as I do.

    “Finally, how can someone who claims to be a Christian have such an obscene, profanity-laced, hate filled post?”

    God sees what’s in your heart and my heart is true. Using substitute words like smeg doesn’t mean anything to God when you’re an apostate in your heart like that goddamned homo is. I hate his lies but I only pity him, he hates me through and through because I fight for the truth.

  20. OverMaster says:

    You know, Anon, you really should save what little face and human worth you have and just quit this insanity. Really, even if you feel ANB wronged you, is it worth sinking to such petty depths? Get a life of your own.

    You’re just jealous unlike you, ANB can write intelligent, thought provoking articles without having to repeat profanities every two words like a brain damaged South Parker.

  21. Anonymous says:

    Hey you the other anonymous, you really need to get a life. I think all of these crap you’re doing is unthinkable. A very shallow matter and you would just want to make it big. Even if you hate someone in the net, its not a valid reason to do all of these. If you don’t like what others are posting, just ignore them and don’t bother going to their blog. But because of what you are doing, it is a proof that you’re not in the proper mind. And each time you’re posting here, you are just proving that you really are INSANE. Do you even realize that??

  22. Glo says:

    This whole thing is very funny to me. And anyone who can create this kind of drama on his blog I feel deserves a vote. Cheers!

  23. Ruby says:

    Haha I agree with Glo, this whole thing is just hilarious xD At first when I read the post, I kinda felt sorry for AstroNerdboy, there’s so much drama going on in the comment section o_o I’m not really sure who to believe…

    @Anonymous/Psycho? – I think you just gotta let it go (it’s kinda hard to believe this been going on for 6 yrs), even if ANB is making lies about you and stuff, just try to ignore it,,, He’s just gonna make a fool of you even more if you keep going on and everyone’s gonna get the wrong idea :/

  24. James says:

    You said it OverMaster! I guess I will be addressing Mr. Anonymous as Anon, but wasn’t there another blogger named that?

    First, Anon, thank you for clarifying that you are not a cyber stalking psycho killer. I believe in that as much as I believe in Tenchi Muyo OAV 3 and magic and Dragons. Ok, I feel for you for the low quality of OAV 3 and that ANB raises his flag and storms in with his pirate ship into the forums, but your not the only one. I also say crap to OAV 3, he also tries to burn the flames and state the few good qualities of it.

    I’m going to accept for a moment, that ANB is a devil God who is pushing peoples faith into OAV 3. But what does that make you? The demon god who is trying to make people forget the evil that is OAV 3. Speaking of religion, you said your a Christian and yet this is very un-Christian-like. You sound more like a Muslim Extremists, who’s see’s anyone who’s not muslim as an infidel. So that makes me and his followers an infidel, even though I dislike OAV 3.

    You are lucky, or I should say we, that ANB is not a senator or the pope. If he was in the White House proposing that christians must die for a better future, believe me I would join in this bitter war. This reminds of Bill Maher(whom Anon is trying to be like) against the insane 9/11 truthers(whom Anon is being like) in which Bill kicked off his show.

    See your points are being defeated by the commentators. This one just killed your cause,
    “To bad no one is going to see this post because deputy fag F.U. “Ratfag” Ostrich is going to intercept the truth for his greedy boss like always.”
    I don’t even see ANB in all this mess. So that quote just destroys your comment. Would he really have not approved that message to save his skin? Obviously not, and he’s gone so far as not even respond to you. And on is own turf. GASP! You better not complain about that too. Just say what you want about OAV 3, but if ANB replies to it don’t act as if it is a crime against you.

    Don’t try to lecture us on God when you say his divine name and goddam in the same sentence.

    whew, I’m done! Frankly, I don’t know how Anon’s wrote such a neat argument filled with nothing but hate for ANB and his “persistence” I wrote this ugly mess in 5 min. I didn’t do well in english.

  25. Kota-kun says:

    Aren’t you just getting a little bit over yourself there Mr.Anon? (The swearing Mr.Anon) If you think that ANB’s blog is so bad, them DON’T READ THEM! What the hell is your problem? Just because of one blog writing, you have to be all “Fuck your beloved megaturd OVA 3!” We’re all mature on this blog, aren’t we? So lets can all the profanity, all the insults and make some comments that get your opinion across but don’t end up hurting someone! Have you looked at your posts? How do you think that makes you look, hmm? Remember the saying “If you don’t have anything nice to say, don’t say it” And what propoganda? This blog is about anime and manga he likes (like Tenchi Muyo OVA 3) and his opinions of them. IT’S YOU who is causing this, don’t put the blame on ANB! Surely, there is something better you can do with life? Go out with friends, see a movie, even read a book, just stop with the insults!

    Wow, I knew people could get emotional over Evangelion, but Tenchi?

  27. Ojisan says:

    I’m surprised to find myself commenting on all this, but after reading about ANB’s situation this morning, I’ve been thinking about it off and on all day. In your position I doubt if I’d have the patience to maintain a web presence at all, and I applaud both your patience and perseverance. がんばって。

  28. junior says:

    ———————–
    He uses names from time to time. Some of his favorites are “junior”…
    ———————–

    Lovely…

    As it turns out, ANB knows me from elsewhere where I use this same name. Odd to hear that some fool (and that’s not a word that I use lightly) has been using it as well to harass him.

    Unfortunate, too.

    /sigh

    Such is life, I suppose.

    As for public information on the internet, one of my family members linked an article on ABC’s website (iirc) the other day mentioning how a group had set-up a site that basically allowed you to track virtually any kind of activity on Facebook. The reason that they did so was largely to let people know that you really shouldn’t be posting much of the stuff that people put there. But I doubt most of the people in need of a sharp check on their Facebook postings will pay attention.

    And guys, ignore the stalker. At this point it’s obvious that ignoring him won’t make him go away. But it’s also pretty obvious that directing posts toward him won’t change anything either. Life’s too short to waste time trading words with those who are incapable of hearing them.

  29. arimareiji says:

    @Frank (Some of his favorites are “junior” and “arimareiji” but he’s used others too depending on the posting frequency of those actual people.)

    Kweh? (‘_’);

    Do you mean the twit has been using my handle? (`_`)

    As distasteful and unwelcome as that news would be, it would be preferable to the alternative (i.e. you asserting that I’m him).

    @the troll-taunters, echoing junior’s good advice:
    1) Do you think he’s going to listen to reason?
    2) Do you think attacking him hurts him, as opposed to just feeding his persecution complex?
    3) Do you think you can do anything worse to him than life and his neurotransmitters have already done?

  30. Kevin says:

    ANB! I’ve absolutely had it with you and your fucking ridiculously awesome blog! How dare you share your fucking opinions on such uber important topic such as anime and manga! What are you.. some kind of fucking blogging champion!?

    I mean fuck! You even got this fucking troll who’s gone beyond fucking troll status and has elevated himself to a status not known on the internet! How fucking dare you bear such false witness to this loser! How fucking could you!?

    What a fucking crime it is to like OVA 3! How could you possibly like it so much!? Is it just to be able to laugh at this piece of shit’s attempts to rattle your cage!? Yeah! All the anime/manga you like/review are crap! Like Mahou Sensei Negima! I mean…. just because it comes from an amazing mangaka and has fucking millions of readers doesn’t mean shit! Obviously you have no idea what you’re talking about!

    If you don’t understand this post’s intentions, go douse yourself in cold water and read it again. Thanks.

  31. AstroNerdBoy says:

    OK, I’ve got a tiny window to pop in and make a comment before I’m out the door.

    First, thanks everyone for their comments.

    As to the sentiment of not knowing whom to believe, I can understand and appreciate that. This does sound like a joke and a childish one at that. It was a joke when it was random attacks on the AFC forums years ago but back then, there would be a flurry of attacks and then quiet. The “joke” wore thin when he crossed the line to cyber stalker.

    It is amazing that Psycho’s attacks on my have increased every year (nearly 300 just to this blog alone in the first five months of this year) whereas I barely have time to work this blog, much less talk “Tenchi.” I have three boards I’m obligated to visit and I’m lucky if I can hit them once a week (FUNimation’s forums get priority). Yet to hear Psycho, you’d think that all I do is stalk Tenchi discussions (which is actually a reflection of what he apparently does). Six years ago, about all I discussed in my free Internet time was Tenchi. Today, look at this blog and you’ll see what I discuss. Often, I don’t even have time to respond to comments here much less cruise the Internet.

    @Legal Beagle — thanks for the link. I did look up the law and Psycho’s attacks are classified as stalking. I will contact the state bureau of investigation to see what they say.

    OK, that’s all the time I have. I’ve told Frank and TR that Psycho’s comments are again banned because I’ve let him say his piece and that’s the end of it. I’m already told that proxy voting is going on and that’s fine. He can rig the vote against me (and I probably would have lost anyway, but Psycho needs to be sure I lose) because when the polls are closed and he’s patting himself on the back for his glorious work for the “truth,” I will still have won. ^_^

  32. arimareiji says:

    To ANB, before I start: My apologies. This is going to be a much more massive derail than my usual. (^_^);

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    For the record, to people other than Psycho (who has gone far beyond the point of listening to anyone but himself): Please don’t be led into thinking that his behavior is representative of Christianity in any way. Like many others, he makes the mistake of thinking “persecution” makes people real Christians, so he seeks it out by throwing vitriol at others until they throw it back.

    Persecution wasn’t something the apostles sought out; it found them all on its own. The fact they endured it testifies to the fact that they shared Jesus’ ultimate self-sacrificing love – not hate – for others (even those who were hurting them), and would try to save them even at peril to their own lives. It wasn’t about being hateful in order to get people to hate them in return.

    It was about enduring torment in order to tell people the truth about the Gospel. It wasn’t about inflicting torment in order to tell people the “truth” about Tenchi Muyo.

    The Bible verse he’s dreadfully and willfully misinterpreting: “Blessed are you when men hate you, when they exclude you and insult you and reject your name as evil because of the Son of Man.” Not “because you acted hatefully.” Not “because you tried to make them agree with you about an anime.”

    A small selection of what the Bible actually says about hatefulness:

    * (closely following the above verses) “But I tell you who hear me: Love your enemies, do good to those who hate you, bless those who curse you, pray for those who mistreat you… If you love those who love you, what credit is that to you? Even ‘sinners’ love those who love them. And if you do good to those who are good to you, what credit is that to you? Even ‘sinners’ do that… But love your enemies, do good to them, and lend to them without expecting to get anything back.”
    * “If anyone says, “I love God,” yet hates his brother, he is a liar. For anyone who does not love his brother, whom he has seen, cannot love God, whom he has not seen.”
    * “Be devoted to one another in brotherly love. Honor one another above yourselves… Bless those who persecute you; bless and do not curse… Do not repay anyone evil for evil. Be careful to do what is right in the eyes of everybody. If it is possible, as far as it depends on you, live at peace with everyone.”

    Well, having been somewhat (heh) involved with the Ayeka Fan Club when all this drama started, I’m sad to see this nonsense continues. When this all started, it was so absurd we (the AFC’s officers and board moderators) were all wondering whether this was serious or just a joke. Seriously, just to say the name “Kajishima”, to say that you liked OVA 3, etc., was like having an internet version of Pavlov’s dogs on the forum. No matter that any praise was conditional, that any liking of OVA 3 was tempered with an awareness of its flaws, nothing logical mattered, or that you just thought you were talking about what Kajishima had done without passing judgment upon his actions, Pavlov’s dog had heard the bell and was in full frothing salivation mode, soon making clear to us all that this wasn’t some extended prank-trolling attempt.

    Forget logic, forget trying to establish a reasonable dialogue, forget trying to appeal to reason: none of that has worked for 6 years or so; it won’t work now.

    ANB, take care.

    Geez…I decided to see how this contest was going for you again, and this guy is still at it?

    I remember when he randomly found my forum and signed up for it as you to bash and make you look bad lol. Fun times, only not really. We may not know each other that well in the long run, but it still sickens me that you have to deal with crap like this ANB.

    With any luck, they’ll catch him for something soon and this six-year long headache of yours will end.

  35. Zeether says:

    I think this is insane. Trying to make someone lose a tournament because of things one troll said is just unfair.

    Just to let you know ANB, I voted for your blog. No one covers Negima in such depth like you do. Mistakes of Youth never interested me.

  36. samidare says:

    Hi AstroNerdBoy. I came here because TheBigN mentioned your blog in his tournament post. I’m sorry to say this, but you lost my vote with this post. Regardless of what your psychotic buddy is doing, you’re the one who chose to showcase your blog through this over the top drama instead of something to introduce yourself in a positive way. Not a way to make a good first impression.

  37. James says:

    Samidare, you just made yourself lower than Mr. Anon. You don’t see anyone writing in other’s blogs saying, “oh, you don’t write about Kajishima, Tenchi, etc, so you lose my vote.” What was shown here was truth. Plus this is not an introduction. If the BigN had this problem I’m sure he wouldn’t hide it, because hiding things makes us sicker.

    Some people are just like that. I remember hanging out for a while on the forum for R. Talsorian Games (RPG company – they make Cyberpunk, Mekton, and Teenagers from Outer Space, among other games) and having to put up with some guy who would denigrate anything and everything that the company did at the drop of a hat.

    If I remember correctly, Mike Pondsmith (the guy who owns the company) later indicated that they picked up one or two other people like that (I think – I could be wrong on that point), and that with at least one of them he found out where they lived, made it clear that he knew that information, and in no uncertain terms told them to bring it to a stop (this bit I am certain about).

    Speaking of “finding other things to enjoy as the years passed”, Angel Beats 8 is out. Looking forward to your review, which I’m sure will be a much more interesting subject than Psycho. (^_^)

    I hope the registry-based comment system will include more confirmed-identity options than the present? As disgusting as I find the notion of Psycho using my handle, I try to avoid having a wide online footprint.

    So that’s what the drama was about. Sorry to hear you’ve got a stalker. Unfortunately, short of him being arrested and put in jail for a while, or you abandoning your current online presence and starting from scratch, he’s probably not going away. Anything less wouldn’t break contact solidly enough to do more than make him escalate.

    Anyways, good luck with the tournament. For what it’s worth, you got my vote.

    awww cmon!! ur stalking people coz of anime?? get a life dude! anime was supposed to be some kind of relief from the reality and the biggest source of pure entertainment, not something to get obsessed about. get a job or something…~.~

    ANB, you got my vote and even my friends too…..that “stalker” of yours… I think he has nothing to do with his life… all that dude do is just rambling for what is right and trying to sabotage you… I mean, it’s been six years already and all that dude can do is just destroying your reputation? Seriously, that dude has no life…He thinks he’s a “high class superior” Christian but he does not know what being a Christian truly means… He just uses foul languages just so he can win this time and it is not working… What I mean is that he does not appreciate peoples’ opinions… He just doesn’t accept his own mistake like we all do… Even though I don’t watch Tenchi, I still support you not just the Negima reviews and spoilers, but also the other posts you posted on like Angel Beats and so much more… For what I can see in your poll, you are on the lead… Still ANB, there are still people who are supporting you right now and someday, that stalker of yours will end his accusations towards you and has something to do with his own life… I mean Tenchi is already done (am I right?). That is all I’m saying…

    For everyone who has been affected by this “conversation” of sorts…

    sometimes, everyone needs to realize why we are alive. It’s not to argue about petty issues. It isn’t.

    Sometimes people become angry; it is understandable. anger, emotions, feeling…they’re part of us, but also a part of us we can control.

    I hope the people who read these comments could understand this basic principle of BEING A PERSON.

    Thanks for reading my rant. 🙂
    btw, listen to this…

    @Anon: At first, I was amused by this drama. Now I just feel kind of bad for you. I don’t think any anime is worth holding such a long grudge on. I think one day, you might wake up to realize how senseless this whole thing is and how much time you’ve spent on this.

    Opinions are subjective, and there will always be dissenting views. I hope you learn to deal with it in a non-obsessive way.

    Good luck, and leave ANB’s life for your own good.

    Because of a propitious Beagle sighting above, please excuse my French when I say to our friendly neighborhood stalker and to all stalkers everywhere

    “FUCK YOU, YOU FUCKING FUCKS!”

    I’ll leave it to Beagle to explain the reference (good to see you around, sir!). Or you could watch Treme, a great show.

    I knew you’d chicken out, you cowardly fag, once it became clear that you couldn’t blame your voting fraud on me. You must be insane if you think I’d ever vote for you, you goddamned Judas. My prediction came true and your pathetic promo blog went down in flames, all I had to do was watch, oh great Confucian scholar. This was a fine example of truth triumphing over lies, you fucking fatbrain. Why don’t you make up even more lies about how I’m threatening your life, you son of a bitch, when you know I’ve never done anything like that and I never will. You’re no Christian, you fucking apostate, or you’d know that a Christian holds all God-given life sacred, even if it belongs to a pathetic scumbag like you who wastes his life stuffing his fat face, ASTROturfing, and bearing false witness. Fuck you, and fuck your beloved megaturd OVA 3.

    Some other comments by Psycho were simply archived and not published (including a faux apology to junior and arimareiji whereby Psycho justified his use of their names in postings) but I decided to publish this last remark since I withdrew from the competition as it was clear that Psycho was putting a great deal of time and effort wrecking the thing and then trying to blame me for his mess (which is a laugh seeing as how I’ve been out of town and with almost no computer access).

    Anyway, for a blog that supposedly “went down in flames,” I’m still standing and as always when it comes to someone obsessed over me, I win in the end, as always.

    Oh, thanks to everyone who voted for me and to those who popped by for a visit. ^_^

    Anon: I’m curious what you think about this quote… it’s something that the most ethical rabbi I know of said about situations like this.

    “If you are even angry with someone, you are subject to judgment. If you call someone an idiot, you are in danger of being brought before the court. And if you curse someone, you are in danger of the fires of hell.”

    Just a blind idealist, huh?

    I doubt I’ll ever know what you think about it, because I doubt you’d be willing to post a response civil enough to be worth letting through moderation. But if you’d like to know who the rabbi is, here’s a link to his website.
