Topic: It's a Free World

America and most of Europe are free lands where anyone can say or do as they please. The internet is perhaps even freer and online not only can anyone say and do as they please but unlike the offline world here there is even less structure or discipline. Witness the chicanery that goes on EBAY, no shopkeeper could ever get away with the nonsense that runs rampant there.

The rug world is even more guilty of allowing complete poppycock to pass for reality both on and offline and my comments about this situation are there in print for all to read. Why no one seems concerned or bother by this is truly beyond me and perhaps I am beating a dead horse. But beat away I will.

There are many egregious examples of this but one of the greatest abusers, at least as far as Turkmen weavings are concerned is Jim, aka jimbo, aka a-bey, Allen. His consistent offerings of airport-art tourist weavings described in glowing terms as genuine ethnographic artifacts on Ebay pale next to the fallacious and overblown expertise and experience as a consultant and expert he claims to possess.

Even more disgustingly insipid are the stupid and ridiculous assertions Jimbo claims to have uncovered concerning Turkmen iconography and C14 dating. The crapola this turko-idiot dispenses is hardly worth critiquing as the blatantly erroneous claims he makes wouldn't/couldn't convince even the most green-behind-the-ears Turkmen rug collector of their veracity. Well at least they shouldn't and that's for sure.

About the only place Jimbo can perpetrate these academic "crimes" is on barry o'con'ell's yahoo group site and on his own, http://www.a-bey.com. Lately Jimbo has tried to re-invent his ludicrous take on Tekke Torbas and in this effort he has scribbled some new "findings" that along with the original ones deserve only to be consigned to the waste-basket of rug histrionics. Here is a link to this moron's latest pretentious and turgid opinion about these torbas that you view by cut and pasting into your browsers search window:

Allen has proven himself to be a fool before and this not only confirms his inability to realize this but also his continuing failure to do anything about it.

Jack you couldn't physically threaten even yourself you lttle dick head. Your only claim to fame is one you have created for yourself.

It truly is sad Jack-off, but you hopes and dreams for Jim's demise have not happened. You are really a pathetic little man.

It's a free world but when someone transgresses truth and begins to delve in slander and falsehood that freedom ends.

Jimbo, aka wind-bag, Allen has now gone over the line and his slanderous accusations will soon become his undoing. He has posted the following on his forum and it is re-posted here in its entirety with my comments added.

If Jimbo does not remove what he has written there and publicly apologize both there and here on RK.com, he will end up in a position even an insensitive lout like himself will recognize is uncomfortable.

Here is what this miscreant has written and posted on his puny soap-box of a website:

I have decided to simply let Jack speak for himself through his writings.
TRUTH IS JIMBO CAN'T STOP ME FROM POSTING WHATEVER I WANT ON THIS WEBSITE BUT HE CAN REMOVE IT AS SOON AS IT IS THERE. SO THIS COMMENT IS AS PHONEY AS 98% OF THE REST OF HIS SCRIBBLINGS.
He has been around for a long time but he goes to bed every night in the arms of the Mother Goddess.
AGAIN I AM NOT A PROPONENT OF THE MOTHER GODDESS THEORY, NOR WAS I EVER. I AM HOWEVER THE PROPONENT OF THE LONG HISTORY SOME RUG DESIGNS MAINTAIN AND BELIEVE THAT HISTORY STRETCHES BACK INTO THE NEOLITHIC PERIOD, IF NOT EARLIER. MY WRITINGS ABOUT THIS ARE ON RECORD AND IF JIMBO WOULD EVER BOTHER TO READ THEM HE WOULD REALIZE THIS.
This cherished "Mother" image Jack has sublimated for the ideal mother he so yearns for.
I HAD A REAL MOTHER, SHE DIED SEVERAL YEARS AGO, AND I DO NOT YEARN FOR ANOTHER. THIS IS JUST ANOTHER SENSELESS COMMENT ONLY A DOPE LIKE JIMBO WOULD FORWARD.
Jack needs a good mother and a good spanking.
JIMBO WILL GET THE SPANKING HE DESERVES FROM ME WHEN EVER I SEE HIS SORROWFUL FAT BUTT AGAIN, BUT HEAR THIS, JIMBO, IT WILL BE A VERBAL ONE, I WOULDN'T WANT YOU TO ACCUSE ME OF PHYSICALLY THREATENING YOU
His published ideas have led to his total and complete alienation from the hallowed halls of rugdom.
IF YOU BELIEVE THIS JIMBO, YOU ARE REALLY EVEN DULLER AND DUMBER THAN I IMAGINED.
Jack is uneducated, never graduating from anything except high school.
FOR YOU INFORMATION, WIND-BAG, I HAVE A BA DEGREE, NOT THAT IT MATTERS
His ideas are so impoverished he attacks any slight with the fury of a small dog.
I ONLY ATTACK IDIOTS LIKE YOU JIMBO. THE RABID WHITE TRASH MENTAILITY AND MORES THAT ARE PUSHING YOU TO ATTEMPT TO DENIGRATE ME AND MY WORK WITH LIES AND TOTALLY UNPROVEABLE ACCUSATIONS ARE THE SOLE REASON YOU ARE ON THE RECEIVING END. WHAT GOES AROUND COMES AROUND AND YOURS, MIDGET BRAIN, ARE JUST BEGINNING TO COME AROUND.
Sorry Jack but time has passed you by buddy.
HA HA, TIME IS ON MY SIDE, TWERP, TOO BAD TIME PAYS LITTLE ATTTENTION TO A BLOATED FOOL LIKE YOUSELF
You're stuck in the darkness of your own subconscious prison.
IS THIS ANOTHER PROJECTION OF YOUR OWN PROBLEMS, WINDY?
I will say that was a very nice Chodor ensi you recently sold. Not the oldest certainly but one of the best examples ever in terms of wool, dyes, condition, and for the most part design.
HAVE YOU SEEN IT? IF THE BUYER BOTHERED TO SHOW IT TO AN IMP LIKE YOU, HE PROBABLY SHOULDN.T HAVE BOUGHT IT
This might serve as evidence that you are still a player at some level.
JIMBO, I EXIST AT A LEVEL SO FAR BEYOND YOUR LIMITED NEOPHYTE VISTA YOUR SILLY PRECEPTIONS ARE WORTHLESS
Please do not post your web site information on my forum anymore.
WHY? ARE YOU AFRAID YOUR FEW READERS WILL SEE THINGS THAT MAKE YOURS LOOK LIKE THE WASTE OF BYTES IT IS
This will cause your posts to be totally deleted
YOU DELETED EVERYTHING I POSTED THERE SO DONíT HIDE BEHIND THIS FLIMSY EXCUSE
and not just those foaming at the mouth manic depressive rants you are so famous for.
FAMOUS FOR? WELL MAYBE AMONGST FOOLS AND REPROBATES LIKE YOU.
Jim Allen
AKA JIMBO, AKA WIND-BAG

It's obviously not a free world at jimbo's forum. After posting several messages in response to the fractured fairy tales that appeared there, his Royal Highness, Jimbo, aka wind-bag, Allen quickly shut down the forum until Tuesday.

Seems windy took his cue from another character - mr marcuson - who chose to use the same ostrich sticks its head-in-the sand routine and unceremoniously closed down cloubland.com's discussion board after some similarly true and damaging posts from me appeared there as well.

These feeble attempts to obliterate the facts about themselves have little effect other than proving true what has been said about them.

At least marcuson was smart enough to quit while he was ahead and while his retreat from the contest he started definitely showed he knew what was said was true, it did work to his favor in the long run. But watch and see how ole jimbo's underfed but overstretched ego pushes him even further down the slippery slope he has mistakenly decided to transgress and puts him deeper into the hole he is trying now to avoid.
