Update on last post

I checked her blog and she's taken down a comment I made and written a post about how some are trying to drag her down. So I wrote her an email:

I noticed you deleted my comment and another who questioned your class and your ways in which you create your class offerings and that is your right. I also read your "response" and know you think I'm trying to drag you down. No, I'm trying to make sure people know what you're about. So while you keep denying what you're doing, remember that so many people know the real you. We as an art community know that you've done this before, many times. You continue to steal and copy ideas. If it was just the format of the workshop, ie the newsletter idea, that would be one thing, but it's the whole thing! Instead of writing your "I'm not going to be dragged down" posts you should think about what you're doing. Start looking back and figuring out how many times you've been accused of copying or stealing. I know this isn't the first time and since it's not, you have to ask yourself, why do I keep getting accused of this? It's because it's who you are. I tweeted and posted about this tonight, I didn't mention who you were. I didn't need to. Because so many people guessed it was you. They wrote to me and asked if it was you.

So you see, you can deny all you want. But so many of us know what you're doing. And you'll never be original. Because all you do is copy others. And you're being banned and cut off little by little from this community. And it's too bad. Don't bother referring to the people you steal from as friends. They don't see YOU that way.

And with that, I'm done. It's all I can do. At least I know that most of those who responded to my rants here, on Twitter, and on Facebook knew it was her. She will continue to lie to herself and everyone else about what she does. She keeps saying only God can judge. Well, if that's true, then you got a lot of explaining to do when (or if) you make it up there.
