Title: wouldn't it be great if...
Post by: lennyhipp on October 23, 2008, 02:39:00 PM
James Young stopped by and peddled his nonsense here for us, just like the good old days?!  :)

Maybe someone should pretend to be an astrology buff and contact him and tell them this place is here. ;)

Oh, and I'm still waiting to be served those court papers.

Did he threaten you with a lawsuit?

Oh, yes, indeed! He was going to sue me for stealing his copyright and defaming his character.

defaming his character.

Is that slang for making him look like an idiot?

He would have to sue himself, then.

You're assuming he has a character to defame.

VenomFangX also claimed that Thunderf00t defamed his character.
This seems to be a popular tactic with these woos.
Whenever you point out the bogosity they spew, they just respond with: "Cut it out or I’ll sue you for defaming my character!"

I've never understtod why people would do that. Isn't suing them defaming THEIR character? Those damn creationists.

It's the final plea of desperate men. Basically, they can't argue the topic so they attack the messenger.

What about Chadbourne? That was a funny guy to "debate" with. The guy stopped making videos after the remastered Bogosity videos came out... and most of his videos had crappy ratings so he probably got discouraged and said, "Wow, this is sucking" and left. I've seen him make comments still, though.

He was a bit of a nut when the only way he could prove his point was to mimic other people and completely miscategorize them. He once did a video trying to make fun of Mr. Randi, and our very own lennyhipp.

I asked him once to give me a reading. He said he wouldn't do it at first, then he gave me a full reading. I told him he wasn't even close... then he goes. "Oh, sorry, that reading wasn't for you... or, not made for you." He bounced back and forth and even in his comments, he RAMBLED like a nutbag. At least Young was composed with his jibberish... Chadbourne would start harassing people and ramble when you had anything opposite to say about his "work." (Or art, or whatever he wants to call his BS.)

Oh, and you gotta love his fake laugh before he begins a video... Not that anyone is around when he's making these videos... So I'm trying to figure out what the laughter is all about when he made them.

"Ahahaha hahaha... Hey guys, I gotta tell you" is how he starts most of his videos.

I'm pretty sure truth gives immunity from liable and defamation charges.   (http://smiley.onegreatguy.net/judge.gif)

Chadow is definately back. I just left him a comment and he responded to it.

Apparently he has some BIG PROJECT that he's working on, and when he's finished, he's gonna make more videos.

He still won't admit that Astrology is bogus, though.

Has he made up his mind whether or not it's a science?

Depends on which question he is answering.

Has he ever responded to his little contradiciton there?
Title: Re: wouldn't it be great if...
Post by: MrBogosity on October 26, 2008, 06:58:21 PM
Only by making fun of me.

Anyone who contradicts him gets a hateful response from him, mostly leaning towards "You're an idiot for not understanding Astrology, so therefore you can't tell me I'm wrong."

He also contradicts himself a great number of times too. He'll say things like "Well, anyone who follows astrology doesn't think for themselves." then he'll say "You can't understand astrology, it's the most useful thing ever to give advice for your life!" or something.

gee, and i thought it was because I sent him a total trashing of his reading he and his students did about me! It was pathetic. I gave him my brother's birth information, we were born half a world and 3 years apart! ALL the 5-6 sample readings I got were OBVIOUSLY patterned after what Chadbourne had thought about me! (or rather an online persona of me... and the hundreds of webpages with my name on them.) Only to find out there's been at least 5 people posting with the nom de plume "lennyhipp" over the years! (a reference to the movie GROOVE TUBE)

It was pretty funny. I always meant to post all the predictions on my website and just never found the time to!  I should dig it all out... I'm sure I saved it. I also thought about re-uploading all of James Young's videos too, only he deleted his account mid way through... I only managed to get four or five of them, but there are some real gems among them! Including the one where he compared Glazing a window to glazing a cake!

Ha! I thought of another reason Chadbourne disliked me: I got him to autograph a book for my (non-existant) nephew. Donated it to the JREF.
