Shortly after we started the site last week I received an odd and cryptic email. It was a fella named David Thorne. I’d personally never heard of this dickshit…that was about to change. It seems this ego monster was the fella that published the whole ‘I want to pay you with a spider’ viral bit some time ago…
As it turns out he has a habit of being a public shit for brains that likes to publish email conversations that he has with people on a regular basis to belittle them and stroke his own fucking dic.. erm.. I mean ego.
Anyway, since that’s the way he rolls, I thought I’d publish his emails to me so you can judge for yourselves if this guy is an asshole or not…
Email 1 from David Thorne;
Yes really; http://www.stockxpert.com/browse_image/view/2322901 – it’s on iStock Photos as well (another stock photo site). If yer designer told you it was his or you owned the rights… methinks he was full of… well… bullshit :0)
I’m sorry if you were lead to believe otherwise…. don’t shoot the messenger bro
Email 2 from David Thorne;
Not a problem. It is your choice to look like you trying to ride on the coat-tails of more successful sites. As the design of your site is slightly below that of which a primary school child could do, it hardly matters, just thought you would be embarrassed.- Good luck with that.
I left it at that….
Ain’t he a piece of work?
I didn’t bother responding because there really wasn’t any point in doing so… especially since I can do it HERE… He does like pissing on people in public you know (go read the first post on his blog)… so we’ll put the response here for him;
Hey Dave… why don’t you take you fucking head outta yer ass and grow the fuck up! Ok? I mean, seriously. If you are so goddamned worried about yer image/brand then maybe you shouldn’t be such a fucking cheap skate and actually BUY the rights to the image. Ya know? Or shit… spend a few bucks and commission yer own. I don’t give a shit WHO you think you are… because I’d not heard of you nor your site before now (seen the spider thing, but that don’t mean shit bro). So piss off.
We started this site on a whim… it’s about the content not the fucking design!
Oh and hey… looks like mister ego-head has some more people to send arrogant little piss-ant emails to – (click here)
Live by the sword….
So my friends.. I leave it to you. Who is David Thorne? Blogging maverick? Or ego centric fuck nuts that lives in his sociopathic dream world where we’re all just looking to ride his coat tails?
