    Exactly. Why post wads and wads of useless shit all day long, Metta-boy? Jesus Christ! Do you live in an attic or your mother's basement?

    Get up outta your chair. Shut off your whole system. Find some clothes and shoes. Get to the stairs and get up/down and go out the door. Keep going until you find some human beings to interact with. Find out what a DATE is. Take a shower / find some interesting topics / and TALK to a HUMAN BEING on your date. Don't post stuff all day. Nobody cares about useless junk-news items. God / enough, man!

    (1). I find this exploitative and showcasing 'pain' for the sake of 'pain'. You can create a work of art that happens to include, say for example, vulgarity, wherein an old trucker cusses like a sailor every other word. Or you can pen a cheap and tawdry hack manuscript where every other word is sh*t and f*ck, just for shock value. The former is art, the latter is hack, imitation, slop. This photo shoot falls in the latter.

    (2). I'm assuming each person consented to the "artist's" using their image in this work. That seems like a bogus consent to me. "I have an incurable disease, will forever need to take medicine and watch out for complications, and might die...oh yea, I can use this picture of your raw emotions, right?" You'd seem like a real witch if you said "no, I'd prefer you didn't." That's not true consent.

    I don't like anything about this. My reservations have nothing to do with an aversion to emotion, or raw feeling. I love those things. It has to do with the cheap and campy means in which he accomplished it.

    Hee hee!

    I've got news for you. Metta8 is not a person. Metta8 is an automated RSS feed, programmed to just copy and paste headlines and links here.

    The automated Metta8 article and headline copy and paste unit has quotas to meet. The mix of items posted lean heavily to pro-Obama, pro-Democrat, anti-Republican, anti-Conservative, anti-religion topics.



    Wow, you are some kind of piece of shit. Metta is a real person and you know that. Your attempt to slander him to strangers and give them the impression he's not real should have you booted off RJ.

    BTW, I've chatted with metta8 online. If he's a bot, then the science of artificial intelligence is far more advanced than we've been led to believe.

    Rather, I wonder if it's southbeach1500 who's the NOM bot. All he does is paste radical Right Wing propaganda. With the usual mix of anti-gay homophobia.

    And then he persecutes metta8 for his great, wide-ranging informational threads here? Well, I guess it's a part of SB's gay-disruptive mission here. Let's all put him on Ignore, shall we?

    A violation of trust and friendship, an exploitation. I cannot endorse this photographer's actions.

    Hey man, you laid it out clearly here. The whole piece smacks of negative exploitation / a pathetic concept.

    southbeach1500 saidCurious how the entity that created this topic hasn't come back to let the rest of us know where it stands on this.

    My suspicion is that the automated Metta8 headline and link copy and paste unit discovered this headline as it was doing it's daily trawl of left wing sites, and it's algorithms calculated it to be a "wonderful gay story" and that is why it was posted.

    Perhaps the Metta8 programming team will return to this thread and post a pre-programmed comment.


    Why can't you leave the guy alone? Normal, sane guys aren't this worked up over a guy posting articles on a website....
