Just so you know, Mr. Kurtz is now playing us like violins, and there's no way to prove otherwise.

Even if I revealed my identity (which no one would care about anyway) there's no way to prove that I'm Fake Scott McCloud, and that Fake Scott McCloud is not Scott Kurtz, and that I'm not just some buddy of SK's who's pretending to be Fake Scott McCloud.

That was true before, but now that SK is messing with us, it would be even harder to convince people. It's a master stoke, and if I cared I would be devastated. As it is, it's just really funny.

Fortunately, even if you do think I'm Kurtz, it takes nothing away from the site, or from the people who actually enjoy commenting about PVP. Our discussions here will continue regardless. In fact, I would venture to guess that a lot of those people would think better of SK for creating a space where people could slag him all day if they wanted, instead of just shutting them down like he sometimes does on his official forum.

Unfortunately for SK, it also means that SK will be pestered until the end of his days to admit that he is me. Which he can't, because he has no way to prove he is me, just as I can't prove that I'm not him.

Which I'm not. :D

No one would care if you revealed your identity, eh? I think you're forgetting someone... yes, that's right. SK! SK would care.

For some reason.

Fake Scott McCloud said...

I actually suspect that this joke may have been a little cathartic for him, and marginalizing me in this way has hopefully taken some of the sting away. :)

Brett Schiller (Sage) said...

huh, I wonder if you reveal the identity to us if we would get the artowrk he put on your head.

Plus, it can't be Paul or Scott the criticism in here is either too insightful or nitpicky for them to care about of even notice themselves.

Brett Schiller (Sage) said...

Meh, i believe FSM is FSM, my rant was against how emotional retarded he is whether or not he pulled this "joke"

Kevin said...

Do huh???

Brett Schiller (Sage) said...

Scott: and don't forget to delete my admin account (something which he could have done himself if he really was

Paul: Holy shit i just realized it was 9/11. (come on man, I know you're busy with work and family, but really?)

I don't think anyone with the sense to read this blog will believe that SK is the author, it definitely isn't his style.
Immature jokes about how it's really him in disguise? Certainly. Insightful critique of, well anything, but especially his own work? No way.

I don't understand why you can't just reveal who you are, regardless if you're truly a Bruce Wayne or a Peter Parker. If you're not Scott Kurtz, just come out and say "Hey, this is who I really am." and continue the site as you.

For someone who bags anonymous posters, this site sure does guard it's anonymity.

I just can't figure out why.

Scott doesn't shut down dissenters on his forums. That's Tim Buckley. Kurtz tends to let his forumites go off on him.

It just doesn't seem so bad these days because all the haters moved over here.

Maybe SK created this site as a lightning rod to attract all the assholes away from his forums. It's made it a nice place for his readers, that's for sure.

It's a brilliant move if you think about it.

I'll tell you why:

1. It's nobody's business.

2. I'd have PVP fanbois up my ass for the rest of my life.

paulsouthworth said...

Er, yeah Sage, sorry! I often forget the date until I start up my computer in the morning. I don't watch cable news, and The Daily Show is on break this week, so yeah, I'm a little in the dark.

Do they sell belated "9/11™" cards at Hallmark yet? I guess I owe you one.

matt said...

I really haven't seen much subtlety outta SK throughout the last day or two (via Twitter). I agree the initial attack was a brilliant try at discrediting the site, but it ultimately didn't work.

These little little remarks over the last few days just smack of desperation to keep this thing going. The anon's already have given up sprinkling the comments with hoax accusations. Give it up dude, it's over.

This whole thing it like being in an elevator with one other person, smelling something foul, and then being informed by the other person that you just farted. =P

paulsouthworth said...

Also, FSM: Just make up a fake name if you like. There's no way anyone can prove it's not you, and it would get everyone off your back.

This just in: Fake Scott McCloud is really Freddy Q. Blubberclutch from East Butthole, Wisconsin.

Did you feel that? I THINK THE EARTH JUST SHOOK.

Brett Schiller (Sage) said...

"This just in: Fake Scott McCloud is really Freddy Q. Blubberclutch from East Butthole, Wisconsin."

And that is why I don't think Paul or Scott are really subtle enough to run a prank like this.

At least Metallica here on Friday and releasing three singles before it comes out thus exposing 1/3 of its album

Brett Schiller (Sage) said...

Wow Mr and Mrs Kurtz make at least 100K as a household? nice.

paulsouthworth said...

Not subtle?

FUCK YOOOOOOOOOOUUUU








9/11

Countdown to people shitting on Scott and his wife to making a decent living in 3...2....1....

Not shitting, he decided to share, and I said nice job.

Its more than I make as a single person household :)

Anonymous said...

Sage, did you just totally pull that number out of your ass because Scott revealed that his wife works 40hrs a week on Twitter?

That's what I call fact gathering!

Brett Schiller (Sage) said...

but less than that of Freddy Q. Blubberclutch from East Butthole, Wisconsin THAT guy is loaded. :)

paulsouthworth said...

Uh... seriously. He never specified an amount. Why would you jump to that conclusion? Why would you even bother to make that comment?

My wife and I both work full time jobs. Care to guess out annual income and present it as fact?

What fun!

Brett Schiller (Sage) said...

He's said he makes about $50k from his comic, and he said his wife makes more than him so
50K + >50K = at least 100K

I know Stephen Hawking should break down THAT math to map out the cosmos

Brett Schiller (Sage) said...

$123,504?
well sorry, i was wrong
Thats gross income not net. Taxes are a bitch right?

paulsouthworth said...

When did he say that?

How is it that I talk to this guy almost every day and you know more about him than I do?

That bastard owes me some flowers.

paulsouthworth said...

Oh! Sage, does Scott stand up or sit down to go pee?

I'm writing some Scott Kurtz/Firefly slash fiction, and it's crucial to the part where Kaylee walks in on Scott in the space bathroom.

Anonymous said...

Neither. Scott's into golden showers.

I don't know, Im sure he'll put it in one of his twitter posts though.
The man does like to talk about personal stuff.

Brett Schiller (Sage) said...

Im glad I have enough of a life to not know who Kaylee is. At least if it was Hiro Nakamura (sp) or Dr. Girlfriend.

paulsouthworth said...

Yeeeeeah, "Heroes" and "The Venture Bros" are SO much less nerdy than "Firefly".

Don't beat me me, Mr. Captain of the Football Team! I'll stop looking at you Cheerleader Girlfriend! Just let me go back to my equations!

Brett Schiller (Sage) said...

Ha and the man who's life is based on creating comedy can't pick up sarcasm.

paulsouthworth said...

A true student of the Hilarious Arts responds to sarcasm with sarcasm, sir.

It is our way.

Yes I know, even though why you want to make any of us think of THAT man doing any bodily fuctions, let alone any man well *shudder*

Theres comedy and then theres just being mean

paulsouthworth said...

I'm sure there's ladies and gents alike lined up around the block for a look at your taint.

A quarter a peek, folks! No flash photography! Stay behind the velvet rope!

paulsouthworth said...

I hope this battle of wits ends soon.

I gotta make a BM.

Brett Schiller (Sage) said...

Yes thats why the "let alone any man" was part of my last comment.

We're all basically gorillas rubbing our asses against the wall any way, unless my parents REALLY taught me the wrong thing in the bathroom

Brett Schiller (Sage) said...

Try the ass rubbiing of the wall, it really gets in between the small parts

So to summarise...

"I wish all this SK=FSM hoax stuff would just go away. Don't you? The SK=FSM hoax? I'm getting tired of it. It's annoying. If only all that SK=FSM hoax business would die down then no-one would need to mention the SK=FSM hoax ever again. Why does everyone keep talking about the SK=FSM joke all the time?!"

ps. The word 'hoax' has suddenly lost all meaning to me since I typed this comment out. Ever happened to you?

Brett Schiller (Sage) said...

Ok had my fun, got to be productive on my off day.

I hope someone puts this whole Scott Kurtz/PVPMMS schmoz into something that can store it for future generations, especially Paul and myself's tete-a-tete, because its all so brilliant.

paulsouthworth said...

Man, that was a big one!

This is so awesome, an entire thread devoted to Sage and Paul trying to figure out who is more frighteningly obsessed with Kurtz.

Sage: I know his salary!
Paul: Oh yeah? I talk to him every day

I have to apologize Kurtz, I still think your comic reeks these days, but I made a misjudgment when I said you weren't popular enough to have maniacal fans. I was clearly wrong.

It is kind of cute that Sage thinks the banal back and forth between himself and PS is some kind of highlight of the site, rather than two people just a little too full of themselves (and each other).

ButtPlugg669988 said...

You guys are really kinda slow.

I'm Scott Kurtz. Always have been. Anonymous, with my Blogger ID, and a fake name I type in a box.

Me.

Jojo said...

Yeah, we know.

Diagoras said...

I actually started reading Paul's comic because of his comments in this forum. He's adorably snarky.

Brett Schiller (Sage) said...

Meh RW i was tweaking him, and what was the subject of the original post? Kurtz messing with people about PVPMMS on twitter.

Forgive me for having fun, its not like I ran through a thread that was talking about a strip or anything. I actually have no respect for Mr. Kurtz and Im sure he gives a fuck and that is how it should be.

I have to apologize Kurtz, I still think your comic reeks these days, but I made a misjudgment when I said the people up here didn't have their heads up their asses, I was clearly wrong.

Brett Schiller (Sage) said...

ha @ 2:20pm anonymus
That comment was stolen from a morning show I listen to that whenever they talk about something that devolves into stupidity they say that NPR is coming to take their tapes to put it into their archives.

There joke explained all in jest, its not like we even devolved into cursing or name calling at each other.
