Frag It wrote:Oh and Gail Simone did act unprofessional with the whole MOTA thing.


The incident between Gail Simone and MOTA was almost 6 years ago. Here is what Matt Brady said at the end on the thread.

"You're booted, mota, but not because of Gail.

You had warning after warning about this type of stuff, and you had stopped for a while.

You're gone, thread is locked.

MattB"

So, after repeatedly being warned to keep his attitude in check, he didn't do it. Then he got banned. I hope he learned a life's lesson, but I'm sure he didn't.

http://forum.newsarama.com/showthread.php?t=10403&pp=30

As Simone said in that thread, he had been banned at other sites for the same activities.

In another thread, Simone says:

"Did you READ the thread? If so, did you notice that he said he shouldn't have maybe used the word 'whore' but insulting me PERSONALLY (not my work, despite your goofy reinterpretation) was fine and he wouldn't apologize at gunpoint?

Add to this that he was also trashing me personally on another board that I'd never posted at?

Add to that that he'd been warned many times here over being insane and insulting...

Add to that that he'd been banned from at least five boards for being unbearably obnoxious?

Jesus, in your world, does anyone EVER have to take responsibility for their own words and actions?

I ignored Mota for years. He didn't stop. He insulted, he lied constantly (anyone who was at CBR at the time will vouch for this). In other words, he didn't go away.

So the timeline here is...he insults me (and other pros and posters) repeatedly and often, gets banned consistantly everywhere he posts, I show up to defend myself here, because I like Newsarama, and...

it's MY fault, it's the other poster's fault?

Excuse me, but when, when, when is it MOTA's fault?


I took full responsibility for what I said. I offered not to post here and told Matt I was fine, no hard feelings, if he chose to ban me.

Matt is well aware where the problem lies. If you are not, that's not my problem.

Gail"

I didn't say MOTA was innocent. Doesn't absolve her though. She acted unprofessionally.

the very fact that she wrote that proves that she isn't innocent IMO.

haha what are you on about? Thats all you have to say? The whole point is that Gail acted unprofessionally, which you haven't addressed at all. Why are you ignoring this, and resorting to childish rude posts?

No, I'm not dodging anything. I was curious as to what happened. So where another poster or two. So I looked it up. Then I posted a link, and a few quotes.

I made no comment one way or the other concerning whether or not the reactions were professional or not. A person has the right to defend themselves from attacks.

I don't think I have been rude at all. But perhaps you see it otherwise. Maybe we should have a mod take a look at my posts to see if I have been rude. If they agree that I have been, I'll re-examine my thinking.

No he's right, you are dodging.

I made a statement saying Gail Simone was unprofessional. You followed that with a bit of history on what happened and quotes as to why MOTA was at fault. Dairy and I responded that MOTA wasn't innocent, but still, she was unprofessional. Then you made more excuses like "6 years ago" or "Old grudges are hard to let do, aren't they?"

I don't care one way or another, but you never really picked a side on if you thought GS was unprofessional or not.

I liked her run on Deadpool and Agent X.

I honestly think that's the last thing in my collection that she wrote. I might have an issue or two from this review group of hers but nothing has really caught my attention.

So, you could be right... ;)





... or I could just read a phenomenal amount of Marvel compared to DC. :)

The combination or her and UDON ruined Deadpool for a while.

Heh.

I survived Jimmy Palmiotti's run on the title and that was the most terrible thing I've read in a long, long time. It still colors my impression of Palmiotti's writing to this day and, apparently, it's gotten a lot better. I wouldn't know. I avoid most of it as much as possible.

Compared to that hamfisted storyline, Simone's take on the character was great.
