Please obliviate drakepool. He wants his metafilter output erased and his time here behind him. He can't communicate what he think anyway. He content to go back to laying his nonsense on his friends...

What's the problem drakepool? Maybe someone can help. You've only been a member for a few weeks, why not give things a chance?

So, you've made fewer than a hundred comments, and you want to be completely disappeared? It never happens. Just log out and stop posting. There's no need to request total deletion, and you won't get it anyway.
posted by interrobang at 12:48 PM on May 30, 2005


dude, you signed up May 5, with 1 link and 52 comments in that time. You could have very easily done nothing more in the 'filter and sunk away into oblivion. From what I can see, you're not happy with how things are turning out in this thread and you want to pull out. Now, everytime a similar situation occurs with somebody else, it will forever be known as "Pulling a drakepool." I suggest you chill out and take the very light criticism you're receiving as if it were nothing, which it is.

drakepool, you have just been serviced by y2karl. This is uncomfortable, unnerving and may bring you out in splotches, but it is not fatal. Moreover, nobody really takes that much notice. See ya next monday.

Ah, Mr. Drakepool, no worries. Why, of the three links I've posted, two of them were awful and went disasterously. One did alright, I suppose. Buck up, man! There'll be other posts.

I mean, not that I'm all that active, really. Or have been around that long at all. But ... er ... still. Stick around.

Wow. Y2karl does it again.

How about this. I recently read a book by Jamake Highwater called The Primal Mind: Vision and Reality in Indian America. I find that Hank Adams calls him a fake and more. It seems that one of his charges, that Jamake was really Gregory Markopoulos, seems false. Other than that I haven't found any damning evidence other than accusations without many clear examples. ---or should go in Ask Mefi?

So, this drakepool character wants to leave, eh? Damn him. Damn him all to hell. When he signed up to serve in this mans army, he knew what he was in for, he knew that one day, sooner or later, he would have to put his life on the line for the good of his country, and for the freedoms we all hold dear.

Oh he can leave, allright. But he'll leave a legacy that will debase and shame his family for generations to come. It is indeed a black day when foul, cowardly dogs like this show their true colors. I'll be glad to see the back of him, but will always recall, in my heart of hearts, the treachery he inflicted upon the good, honest, true men of this establishment. Damn him to hell.

Drakepool- Seriously, I hope you hang around. I would like to point you to the first several posts I made, especially the ones to MetaTalk. But I got piled on so badly that the threads were all deleted. So I can't. Posting here is a lot different from lurking here; that comes as a rude shock to many of us. Take a deep breath, try not to react when people pull your chain, and make a few quality posts. This will be something we all laugh about at a meetup sometime.
