empathy: the ability to understand and share the feelings of another

If you've been there and done that and you know (as you say) that 'it's pointless', why engage? He didn't name any names.

If you mean that you will no longer post here, I'm sorry to hear it, because I rather enjoy your musings.

Oh, now you've done it.

I don't need any lessons in empathy, or definitions of same, thank you very much. A lot of empathy toward this poster has been demonstrated, post after post, and it has done nothing but bring on more accusations, misunderstandings and outright denials of anything anyone has said. He didn't need to mention any names, most of us have seen this story playing out and know who he's talking about, at least in theory. It turned out pretty much as we expected, too.

I posted because I had something to say. It's still a somewhat free country, for now. Funny thing about message boards, is that people post replies to threads people start. If you don't want to read any more of mine, feel free to skip over them. As they used to say, SOB: scroll on by.

My only denounce here was that she made me crazy.

The bal at the chateau from yesterday is other correction I must make.

Hi Emily, yesterday I mistake snide for Ill intentioned insinuations .Today ,with time , and with my Google translate I have clarified that it was not what I did.

I understand that libel is defamation and I wasn't intending to harm no one.
When I said that may be she liked my book and she could be the tempted to keep it and not return it to me.
I know nothing ,may be half traduction has been made and this is hers.

I don't know what is the BBB but being non resident I have no chances.
I tried with humour but the person follows unresponsive.I will take that for the end and it's a shame because she was so young.I don't want to carry on with this if at the end nobody is wanting to translate the book for free.

If I may say something here is I regret to have taken this messages board intended for technical or financial matters to ventilate my personal problems with a friend.
It is not the first time in my life I launch missiles to someone when I feel exhausted and believe me the after feeling is not one of joy.
The only good thing is I really didn't made her bad.
She can come and stay friends again in a new understanding now she knows I am really ugly and wild and not pretending.
She should have taken precautions.I speak English but my heart is in South America.
I would like to have no more comments about me because they are not going to be good and I prefer not to know.

So it's option 3. You asked someone for a favor and ultimately they did not do it. That is the end of the story. Move on.

Yes I have gone too far and don't know why complicate my life and worry so much.
And complicate someone else life in the process.
You are right it is not only to downscale but to end the row.

What is this all about?
I don't know what to say because I don't understand.
This was not how I thought of the process of one collaboration.
You understand that nobody buy closed eyes.
How to know without seeing a sample.
May be the better could be to leave this here.
I don't want to follow this way and I am afraid the contract is irreparably broken.
I don't understand what do you mean by a new ASIN for the Spooky Spoke version you have been working in or on.
I am the publisher and it was going to be only an update,one more update of the many I have done in the course of the last two years.So what is this new ASIN you talk about?
I don't know if I have to worry .
I wait more news of you.

I have two questions.
How did you change so much in your approach since our first encounter on Kindle Community Forum?
Because now I can't see any help-like attitude towards me.
Second one and crucial is:
Assure me that you or one of your avatars do not intend to publish your own Spooky storie on KDP or Penguin or Simon and Schuster and if you deny vehemently this absurd suspicion then I will consider all of this misunderstanding as ended and will present you all my apologies for this unforseen inconvenience .

I do not know how this could happen.I was comforted with the idea that Spooky Spoke English version was on good hands ,you will produce the best English version I could ever dream to do alone by myself and that one will be the presumingly definitive version of the book until one day in the future, the latest La historia de Spuki Spanish version could be translated into English .

I wrote down on the preface that in Spooky I did a four hands job with a spiritual writer from the after life and now I guess this complication comes from his side because in my family history nothing like this happened before.

I've read some of these posts (Why?) and feel as though I've been beamed to another planet. But, my translator/communicator is on the blink. Very entertaining though - thanks

I've just found this thread, and all I can say is WOW and WTF.

I have told you my internet has been shit, and I'm currently prioritising deadlines and the likes when I do get a chance to get online.
I've been replying to most of your weekly emails, but when it comes to personal questions and TED Talks emails, I don't have time for that.

This is how I told you it was going to happen FROM THE START:
For this to work, I wanted you to pull Spooky offline, as it isn't doing you any favours. AT ALL.
Then when I was finished, I'd send you the new manuscript for you to upload with a new ASIN.
Now you're asking for updates, so you can upload them to your old story, and at the same time want to cancel the contract.

1; we never had a contract. I was doing you a favour.
2; if you're just going to update this story as it is, you're wasting my time, your own time, and your readers' time. It'll be a collection of proper English, added to garbled English.
If the Look Inside shows something decent, where the rest of the book doesn't. It will piss any potential customer off.

I'm sorry, what?!
How is translating your work for you not helping?
I'm the one doing you a favour here.

Trust me, I have no interest in publish Spooky Spoke.
None. At. All.

I know this is nothing to do with me, but my first thought is - you're a saint for bothering.

He asked for a sample, and I've sent him the translated version of Chapter 1 in PDF form.

On the 20th of March - After receiving the sample! - he posted:
You understand that nobody buy closed eyes.
How to know without seeing a sample.

How is one to react to that?
