  •  don't worry... (4.00)
    I get accused of being a "fake" too when I write about my Iraq experiences. But if people would actually re-read it before they make accusations, then they would see it's pretty damn hard to make up personal stories such as this one, and mine as well. Just ignore it. Ya can't please everyone, and there will always be skeptics:)
    •  I don't think he was accusing. (none)
      Empirically speaking, there's no way to tell.

      But it'd be nice to be that good at fiction.

      I could gets paid. :)

      You can't contain CSKendrick, you can only hope to stop him. :)

    •  You, sir, are no fake (none)
      There's never been a shred of doubt about that from me, RetreatHell.

        about you. Sorry if it seemed that way. I was saying that there's always skeptics out there that don't think that some of the "personal-type" diaries are legit. Which is understandable. But I don't think I've come across any here myself. If I did I surely didn't know it. Of course I tend to take everyones word as true. I tend to be pretty trusting of others around the blogosphere. Though maybe I shouldn't always be so. I figure everyone gets a chance, and if they muck it all up with lies and bullshit, then I'll not trust their words any more.

        Peace out. And check out my diary tommorow if ya like. I'm picking up where I left off last Friday night: Deploying to Kuwait for prep for invasion of Iraq. And I'm staring off with an embarassing yet funny story about the day we left. A hint: It involves urine:)

        take care-RH-

        •  Yes. I look forward to it! (none)
          And what we're trying to do in the blogosphere, this corner of it anyway, is develop a more accurate channel of information than what the traditional media provides us. That's the product, as I see it.

          And when I read this diary I was taken back to a few earlier examples (not by you...from before you were here) that did not meet this standard at all. We often get copycat efforts around here. This diary I trusted; those I did not. The diarist in one of those cases deleted all his diaries and left abruptly. That was a stark admission of guilt as I saw it.

          And so while I may have made a sour note in this chorus of sobbing kossites, I did so with those positive intentions. cskendrick is at least as much of a jerk as I am and I see he appreciates my angle. =)
