Post dedicated to my bully: Rene Pleinair (by Roos Schuring)

This is a posting from Roos schuring a few days back on her weblog
I noticed it two days back and have no idea how long it was visible, ... ( Italic are my answers btw.) 

Luckily it is still visible in Caché

Post dedicated to my bully: Rene Pleinair

[From Roos Schuring]

Ai Ai Ai. You caused me trouble Rene! 2 Years now? adding comments here and there- in fact on all channels where possible. And why was that? Did I ever hurt you? Did I ever try to treat you in a similar way? Think not.

[Yes you did. And you still do. And not only me. You really don't get it, don't you? You can't push people aside like garbage so easily Roos it will get back to you on certain day.]

But alas. We all live our lives the way we are inside. And why you just can not go on with your own life and paiinting without hassling another is a big question mark to me- but I won't ever reach out to you again, but this one dedicated post. It could be a post to all haters out there. How to deal with them.

[You did it yourself Roos your convicting people without knowing them.]

I can say to my readers this is how I handle 'spam':
 - delete
 - delete
 - unfriend
 - ban
 - forget about

[This is Roos at the her best people! She's in charge of her Internet world.  It's HER Internet world and if you don't comply, you will be banned and forgotten about, no matter what you're comment ever where, if queen Roos doesn't like it, you're screwed.]

Is that what you want happening Rene? Alienating so many artist friends? For what? What's that score or game? Why can't we all do our thing and be happy..

[Cause it's not happy Roos, it's screwing each other. Indeed I've alienated allot of your Dutch colleagues, they are just to chicken to speak out or they just don't give a ****. In any case they aren't my friends. You live in that little niche between 'they don't care and their fear'. There is no score, there is no game there is just development in painting for me.]

So now his problem is my new SITENAME.
 I could understand that Rene! But where does it say that you have rights on the word 'pleinair'?
 My readers know I chose ROSE to market myself more clearly worldwide. Because no one outside of Holland can say out loud ROOS and no one knows what my name means. I could have chosen ROSEPAINTING.COM  But you all know my main core: it's PLEINAIR. So that was that.

[Because you first used the Painting-plein-air which almost looked exactly as mine Painting-pleinair  and now Rose Pleinair, ... what a coïncidence Roos. (see attached photo's)

Roos previous workshop addres.

René PleinAir weblog addres.

"Market myself" you name it! It's all about marketing isn't it?  Making Internet hits, staying on the radar. Marketing sells everything, even cigarettes. That doesn't say it's healthy, does it? ]

"Why can't we all live", I hear Kramer say.. or was it George..
 Anyway that's it, and that's that.

[Indeed Roos 'Why can we?" Why is it all up to you who's allowed to comment and who isn't, why is it all up to you to manipulate and delete what you don't like? Do you have a borderline syndrome or what? Are you scared to loose control, in any case you are planting these seeds yourself Roos.]

 If you cause me trouble or heartship again Rene, I will block you away from anything I can get my hands on.

[ Ooow please do! I've blocked you where ever I can months ago but for some sites I just can't. I will post this on my Weblog and Facebook Roos and share it with some and hope that it will cause you enough trouble to block me where ever you can, but I promise when I get the change to comment on to anything of you, I will.]

Be warned.

[Is this a threat? If so I suggest to look over you shoulder a bit more when painting from now one.]

 I like to be free from bullshit.

[That's an easy one Roos, STOP with your bullshit! Stop posting rubbish just for being on the radar. Stop manipulating and stop those soo annoying narcissistic posts of pretending to be so important and so famous.]


[My pleasure.]

 And thanks to my dedicated readers.

[Which I am surely not!]


[You're sure about that?]

"Daytime nocturnal." Zelhem, Holland.

It's hot here in The Netherlands, and thinking of that
I thought it would be a good idea to paint inside, ... a barn.
I noticed this spot several weeks ago and I'll guess this was
the perfect time to paint it, so together with torch (a mighty light)
I give it a shot.
