Yeah, that was a poor move on my part. I do apologize for it once again. I can be pretty difficult to get along with sometimes. RazEmbarrassed

I think it gives our creative relationship a lot of character. :) No worries, Koosh.

All has been said already, so I won't repeat it.

I've been in a similar situation too. I was in a group of 5 friends and one day, two of the girls decided that they were enemies to death ...the three remaining decided to get in the middle. Wrong move FeralStopSign Now I'm in contact with just one of the group.

If they have something between them, better let them fix it by themselves. You will need to know both VERY well to try something and make it work, and even if you do, it will be very dangerous for your friendship.

Hey, everyone. I'm reviving this thread after such a long time because there are a couple of things I've been meaning to add.

1.

I should mention that B intended to do me a favor by warning me that A was such a two-faced backstabber. But there's an old saying: "The road to Hell is paved with good intentions."

I think that's just a part of being human that anyone can relate to. However, I wonder if being involved in fandom, any fandom, adds a couple of factors that can make dealing with people a little more interesting. Creative people (whether they're pros or fans) tend to be unique individuals with strong opinions, which can create or add to friction during interactions. Also, quite a few of us are socially awkward, sometimes because of autism and/or other conditions, so we may not realize when we're getting on somebody's nerves. To sum up, I'm not surprised that fandom is so full of drama; I'm just glad that there's not even more of it, and that the people on this forum get along so well.

Aaaactually, this is incorrect. Just like nobody ever said "Beam me up, Scottie" in Star Trek.

The actual phrase is attributed to Dr. Samuel Johnson, an 18th Century British author. His exact quote is "Hell is paved with good intentions."

Somewhere from when he first wrote it down, this quote was mangled to add the "The road to..." It's a small detail, but worth noting.

It isn't your fault, Mark. Just people changing things and forgetting their origins. Our collective consciousness is unique that way.

Thanks, Erico! I hope you won't mind if I correct your correction: according to the phrase's Wikipedia entry, it goes back much further than Johnson.

Anyway, here's a stray observation: the "incorrect" versions of famous sayings that enter public consciousness are often pithier and punchier than the originals, which arguably makes them improvements.
