some of this may seem redundant. i apologize.
Yes, I know, Mark is Seth. It's not like I didn't know already, nor can I say that I didn't tell you so. Yes, I've also seen the comments he made public on his profile, particularly those about Riley/Ariel (referred to as Asia in said comments) and me, and I'm a little disturbed as to the implications of "It was that bad?", "what? That doesn’t sound like him at ALL", and "oh wow. Im very sorry about that. It makes me very angry to know they were treating you like this." Of course, since I don't know exactly what Seth told the user who left the comments, I can't fully address this issue. That said, I can assure you that Seth is not the victim here. As a matter of fact, before and during his brief stint as Mark he has been increasingly aggressive, sending me private messages and profile comments full of curse words insulting me and flat-out admitting that he only wanted to piss me off. (He even sent me a video flipping the middle finger at me.) That isn't all though – he also started harassing me and spamming my email inbox. In fact, even though I was already replying to his messages (sure with troll comments), I had to continue doing so to prevent him from sending me emails again. He even added seven people I know in real life on Facebook, despite never meeting them. What really takes the cake though is the fact that he was acting like a jerk just to get our attention, since "acting nice" wouldn't work (even if we'd already made it clear we didn't want to be friends anymore).
As to what I just said, I'm sure you all remember the incident where Seth uploaded pictures he took of his Skype conversation with us where he claimed we were making fun of Ringwraith being in rehab and demeaning firewhiz (we weren't. We're not going over this again). The main issue was that he posted our real names that we didn't want publicized on this site. And the event that sparked all that was that when Ariel returned to the site under the name Rilaeon, as soon as Seth found out he told Ringwraith who she was without her permission and kept it from her for a year. I don't think I need to go into detail about that though as she had her own blog posts addressing that issue (which can be summarized give that she has recently left). Nevertheless, after finding out that he lied to us about a lot of things, we decided to terminate our friendship as we couldn't trust him anymore. What confused us most was that he was originally apologetic about this issue but later started accusing us of being hypocrites, switching positions repeatedly for a period of time.
However, these would all just be words that can't be proven if we didn't actually have legitimate proof. Here are screenshots (edited to blur out curse words, my name, and Seth's email address). The comments from my profile page can still be seen publicly, though my responses were lost due to Seth deleting his account (and likely not letting the comments through moderation).
