Ciao, Michael, and welcome once again to RugKazbah.com a website where anything goes, even your calling us 'too stupid'.
But just because we allow you and other RK haters to try and sully us, our collection, our knowledge and research with BS and innuendo doesn’t mean we are in any way what you falsely claim.
In fact our allowing this shows we are far larger a person than someone like you. Someone, so hurt by our dismissal of your attempts to get us to work for you, you still feel the pain and need to express it.
Why else would you come here other than to assuage your rejected and bruised ego?
You surely cannot discuss Anatolian rugs with us as you have not even a modicum of knoweldge about them. Your purchases, as we have clearly demonstrated, prove this hands down.
So you take the low road and pretend a rasher of illusionary accusations are fact when, in fact, they are nothing but dumbass attempts to make yourself feel better.
Besides showing how mediocre and second-rate your purchases are and have been, you quite honestly are a waste of our time.
We have well over five hundred emails from you and, while most are short and say next to nothing or are full of bravado and trash-talk, in a select few you are honest enough to both acknowledge our preeminent position and your envy of our research and collection.
Maybe on those days your medicine was correctly administered, or who knows what else caused those moments of clarity and truth you suffered. RK doesn’t care enough to want to know. Nor do we care what you think about us, but you dearly care what we think about you. This is obvious as the nose on your face.
Plus, we already know enough about you. To wit our characterizing you an overbearing, paranoid, control freak whose delusional diatribes in our direction are motivated by RK’s refusal to play your game.
So face reality here, Michael. Regardless of how much money you have, or can spend from other people’s bank accounts, you do not know fuckall about Anatolian rugs. Or for that matter any other types, even Baluchs.
You have displayed your dead-eye to RK innumerable times in those more than 500 emails, and if you try to deny this we will bury you in your own words.
You have sent us many pictures for our appraisal but when we finally told you no more free advice the veneer of civility immediately peeled away and the irritable, obnoxious disappointed greedy creep you can quite easily become came shining through.
So please don’t waste everybody’s time in trying to play mr nice guy, something you surely ain’t.
Unlike the personal vendetta against RK this turn of events initiated and now has caused you to go public, the only reason we have written about you is to demonstrate the prima facie fallacy you and others have tried to prove: Money can buy great rugs.
This, like the check’s in the mail and I won’t come in your mouth, is such a well-proven non sequitur it requires hardly any effort to substantiate.
Armchair carpet collectors, except a less than a few one can count on one hand, have never gotten their money’s worth and have always ended up buying a bunch of mediocre, second-rate weavings under the belief they were buying the best.
This is you, Blackie, a delusional glutton whose checkbook waving hasn’t gotten you just about anything but near misses, losers and worse(hello Shanbo).
Sure, you might be able to sell them to your gullible painting clients, but this is, as we have already said, a type of thievery that is unbecoming as well as rampant in rugDumb. So, I guess, you’re in the club now but this is nothing to be proud of – say hello to dennis dodds maybe he can give you some lessons in fleecing the naïve and trusting.
Actually and by the way you bore RK with your dullard sophistic insinuations. Try and up your game if you want to continue.
And speaking of upping your game we did note your acknowledgement we have spurred you on to learn more about Anatolian carpets. However cracking the books, many of which we reccommended you purchase, even if you read them and not just look at the pictures, will not give you the knowledge you need to remedy your dead as a doornail eye.
You are far too spoiled believing your eye, your aesthetics, and your opinions are above comment, forget about the ludicrous trash-talk yours are superior to ours. To reiterate an old phrase of our “We forgot more than you will ever know.”
Likewise, let RK suggest you either go roger someone else’s leg or get serious, and not only show RK but our readers as well the supposed masterpieces you have bought.
More importantly tell us all why you believe they are great. After all, we all love a good story.
Talk is cheap, Michael, and so far your track record (the krikor, the burns and the Aleander rugs you have bought) doesn’t demonstrate astute buying. You claim to have bought many more rugs, so let’s put up or shut up.
