That's it. I'm going to have to charge our friend Honda for the 2 minutes 45 seconds I spent writing an actual legitimate response to his trolling.

My assessment of Honda's character in an earlier post was correct.

I can think of one prominent forum quitter and 4-5 others that will agree with him and then go on to blame the secret group of bullies AKA the Clique (TM).

What a wonderful thread...

"devil in a mickey mouse costume" is my new favorite phrase....

When everything was all said and done, he told me to F*ck myself. He is a terrible person to deal with...a true devil in a Mickey Mouse costume."

Disney is hardcore, man. Of course, I'm just GUESSING that's what you want sponsored, considering that I TPed to the pick on your profile and it's full of a vast and howling nothing.

first off, there is no copyright infringement. go read copyright laws then get back to me.


and full of nothing huh??? That's why we have filled an entire half a sim with things to do.

well, since 3 lindens have been to my place and seem to like it, I would say you need to go worry about yourself and not what we are doing.

Hi Honda!
The beauty of this all is since you came here and posted your begging thread and seem to be acting like a royal asshat at the other place I get to worry about anything I damn well want concerning this.

Now.. know this. You are excatly the type of hot headed person that makes this whole thing destined to blow up into a big steaming pile of poop. This alone makes me OK with your ranting and whining and lack of any kind of self-control. If you are open in 6 months I will be shocked beyond belief.

Thanks for self destructing all over two forums and making your place the most not wanted to see place of the week.

Take Care!

Don't really care how many sim there are and don't care if she wants to visit or not.

RIIIIIGHT most not wanted place of the week, that's why our traffic has tippled since we broke away from the other area.



And your right, you can worry about what ever you want to worry about. don't bother me any. Just remember. Worrying is like trying to solve algebra by chewing gum. So go ahead an worry about us all you want. It makes me feel good to know someone out there cares enough abut us to worry about us.

But please keep in mind. I don't have the time to worry about you. sorry, I have a life and more importain things to worry about.


Oh and whats funny is you call me an "asshat" (whatever that means) yet I am not the one that started all the smart ass replies. See that's where you and everyone else seem to over look things. I came in here and the other board looking for help and information. all I got was people being smart asses. Now tell me who was the "asshat" first?

So how does banning anybody from your sim empower you exactly?

The traffic will dip again once the shits and giggles are over with.


Good luck getting sponsorship for your sim. It sounds like you're going to need it.

OK, Honda. I decided to read the other thread to see if it was as bad as you say and you still seem to be holding the honor of asshat of the whole ordeal. Yeah, you got the typical ribbing one gets when they have a next to nothing post count and go in and ask people for money. You are going to need to grow some thicker skin if you are going to make such a move.

Now. It seems your old sponsor had some words to say about all this:

Quote:
Yes, now that the sim transfer is completed, I can sum up in a bit more detail what happened. I was once Honda's "sponsor", offering him a 4096 parcel of land free to build the Haunted Mansion. He seemed like a nice guy who was having a hard time financially but had a lot of talent and potential. All was well at first, until he started building a club and mall in the sky without asking me first. I told him that if he wanted to build all that, he'd need to pay me rent as our deal was only for the mansion. Still wanting to help him, though, I offered to rent him half a sim at cost, and give him some extra time to make the first payment. When it came time to pay, he claimed I'd told him the cost would be US$120/month, which of course is incorrect as tier for half a sim is $147.50. He said he didn't have enough to pay me more than $120 because that was all he'd brought in from shop rentals. Again, being way too nice, I gave him more time to pay me the rest, but I never saw that money. He continued to insist that I told him it was $120/month - why would I tell him a rate that would mean I'd be losing 27.50/month?!

He would complain about and try to control everything I did with my land, including when I added a rental sim next to the park to help cover what he was costing me - because then he wouldn't have "room to expand". Room to expand, when he couldn't even pay me what he owed! He refused to comply with the land settings I require of my renters - namely allowing scripts and object entry. He is so adamant that MW be a no-flying area that he put up giant invisible prims to keep people from flying over from my sims, forcing them to enter via a tiny opening at one side of the sim and therefore killing what would have been a great source of traffic (my main sim is very busy!) He started raising money to buy the sim from me, which I offered to do to be free of the situation. However, it was clear by the pace of his fundraisers that it would take a while.

After over a month without getting ANY tier payment, I confronted him again, and he claimed he didn't owe me money because he'd paid a month early before (not true) and still refused to pay the full $147.50. The coversation turned into an argument during which I also confronted him regarding sexual harrassment toward two former Mouse World staff members, the full nature of which had just been brought to my attention. Things became unpleasant and "suddenly" he had the money to buy the sim.

After the transfer, he demanded that I sell him a sculpted mountain I had created to cover the Haunted Mansion ride building, and/or give him modify rights on my objects again. I was not willing to give him mod rights again after the way he had behaved, and as he still owed me $55 in back tier, I told him I'd sell it to him for that price. He became furious and said he couldn't pay me now, and demanded mod rights. He then booted me from his staff and regular groups, without notice or explanation. As it was clear I would never see my money, I TPed into the sim and began removing the mountain. Seeing what I was doing, he banned me. I had to send in 2 alts with mod rights to reclaim my creations.

Since then he has accused me of griefing, insulted me and my staff, and been nasty to a level far beyond what I can say here. I have to echo Kriste's comment that he is a devil in a Mickey Mouse costume. I have to advise anyone and everyone to avoid investing in his sim in any way. You will regret it. I tried to help someone and ended up losing a lot of money and countless hours of my time that I can never get back. I still worry about the threats he has made, but I'm willing to speak out because I don't want anyone else to get hurt.
To which you didn't really have much to say to counter it:

Quote:
And now for the truth. Ayesha offer the half a sim to me for $120/month I even wrote it down and confirmed it with her 3 times during the chat. then a month later she sees she messed up and tried to raise the rent on me. I am not responsible for her mistakes.
So, that is your word against hers. She seems pretty reasonable and level headed you.. not so much.

Quote:
No she got childish about it and tried to hold the so-call mountain she built (more like a marshmallow man pile of crap) hostage until she got her $40, then when I told her I would pay her in a few days she decide to come reclaim the pile of crap. Thank god though we replaced it with an actual mountain. hers was only temp anyway.
Insulting the mountain you were trying so hard to keep hold of? Yeah, that doesn't add up or make you look honest either. It kinda has that whole sour grapes and "I don't have much of substance to say here so I will just play the insult game" sound to it.

Quote:
Now anyone on here that thinks that *I* am the bad guy. try actually going to these other peoples sims ad seeing how they do things. I mean we did nothing to them. they offered service to us. then got pissed when they couldn't take over the area. kristi got pissed when i didnt let her TAKE OVER Main Street. Ayesha got pissed when I moved or mansion attraction off her sim to our sim, there by cutting her traffic. They cnat accept the fact that they lost a good thing. go on and do your own sim and leave us to our sim.
Looks like she is free from you and you are free from her. Yet, you still keep coming back and making yourself look less and less professional in the process.

I love a good forum debate and flame war. I am going to politely suggest here that you walk away from the forums and try to do whatever it is you are going to do with your salute to the happiest place on earth. You are killing your rep here and there and when I say "the most not needed to see place" above (let me break this down for you) I mean by the forum members that you are battling silly one liner responses in front of. You had a nice little write up on a blog but this thread already has like 1002 views and is very google friendly. That figure is just here.. I am sure there were tons of views over there too.

Go play Walt Disney on your sim before this thing gets any more out of hand. This is not the publicity you seek.

bye now.

OK Mousolini, you know best I guess, all it would have to take is an email from someone you pissed of to the Disney lawyers. Just wondering how you think you are not infringing?

Unless you're a zombie Walt Disney, you're infringing on so much copyright you might as well just move back into your parents' basement and start working at Taco Shack to pay off the roughly 45 billion in settlement.

Actually nevermind, you're probably on that path already. I'm sure you do great at job interviews.

Der: "hi give me a job"
Employer: "Uh, why would we -"
Der: "fuck you I want a job and you're going to give me it asshole you're a fucker"
Employer: "Uh... I'm going to go ahead and call the cops"
Der: "Fine but I can totally post my own bail I just want a job and I'm not doing anything wrong even if I am pissing on your floor so suck it down"
Employer: "Enjoy this taser."
