Apparently my last blog entry has pissed off a few people. But the worst part is that no one, other than Korruk himself, came straight to me to say anything. Out of all the readers and people who viewed that blog…so far only four have had any kind of comment. If no one likes how I write my blog, why is no one speaking up? Why is no one saying “Hey Hood, quit being a bitch!”? Or even better “Hey Hood, are you sure you got all the facts?“. Instead I get to watch as my page views spike to ridiculous numbers while I get no feedback on anything. Four people out of 125. I’m not sure what to think. I will admit that I roasted Korruk, and that I may have taken his answers in an incorrect way. Someone mentioned that he has a very dry sense of humor, something that I really didn’t know about him. But the fact is that still after so many people have read this, no one spoke up to say a damned thing. Why not? I want people to be heard, I want someone to speak their mind without fear of prejudice or ridicule. I may have been severely wrong about the way I interpreted Korruk’s answers. When I asked if he was mean OOC, I did not expect him to reply as he did. I guess it was under my own assumptions that any rational person would try to defend that they were truly a nice person and not act as though they didn’t care or that they were entitled to their rumored actions.
As much as I would try to be unbiased in the things I say and write there are times when simply standing on the side just won’t do. This entire blog would be completely flavorless without throwing in my own opinion. The views on Kayah, Shadow and Manna would simply be what they themselves thought. If my opinion had not be clearly stated I would still be sitting at 6 views a day and having no readers. I don’t say that to try and promote myself as roasting people like Korruk to get views. But simply what I’m seeing is that this sort of thing tends to work. When I first started the interview with Korruk I fully intended to show case him other than how people have viewed him. And when I say ‘people’ I should mention that I am speaking of my circle of friends, not Korruk’s, or any other outside source. It had been considered common knowledge that Korruk was “not nice“. The intent of interviewing him had been to turn that page and find out truth, to be able to show that he wasn’t just an arrogant guy that simply didn’t give a shit. But how he answered and worded his opinion came back to like a slap in the face.
The night that I wrote “I’m Unreliable” I even got to spend the evening hanging out OOC with Korruk and I was a bit surprised to find that he was polite, civil, and even had a bit of a flirtatious personality that I found completely endearing. Korruk even spent a few hours helping me find an outfit for my character that would go well in both the role I play and would fit my roleplay style. Korruk even fronted me 300 Linden to buy a pair of boots that would go perfectly with said outfit. Can I say that Korruk is an asshole? No. Can I say that his interview was full of haughty remarks? Yes. I originally went into asking Korruk questions because I knew he would answer them. I knew he would help me after so many told me no and I resorted to writing “I’m Unreliable.”. In affect I can admit that I roasted him for no other reason than finding that his answers simply did not meet my expectations that I had set on a too high bar. Likely Korruk was side blinded and hurt by my accusations and finger pointing as I labeled him a douche bag.
I was asked to remove my blog and change what I wrote but having already had it posted I’ve decided to leave it, its already been read and others have already made their assumptions about how I write and what kind of person I am. So basically, in essence, roasting Korruk, has in turn, tied a noose and hung myself. I see that now.
In my blog I completely neglected to mention that Korruk, as a roleplayer, is one of my favorite people to sit down and spend a few hours paragraph roleplaying with. When I first met Korruk it was when my character was collared in Ebon Hand and he actually taught me more about the general role of slaves and their positions to Free Men. Even when Korruk and I’s roleplay turned sour he still did not reflect any negativity towards me as a person OOC. I did not give credit where it was due. Korruk’s roleplay and character inside SL Gor are completely solid and well thought out. Granted his character is harsh and seemingly cruel but that is the depth that -is- his character. So mostly what I am saying here is that Korruk Sigal is not a douche bag, nor is he an asshole. I have made myself out to be the person I painted Korruk to be; for posting such a belligerent blog about him when I simply hadn’t been pleased with how he answered.
