I got a message on my AIM today that just smells all kinds of fishy. But ultimately, I'm disappointed in the whole situation - not mad, just incredibly disappointed.
My contact information is publicly available on my page here. I didn't have to do that. It is there for your benefit should you ever feel the need to contact me. Now, you can just send a note on FA if you like, no problem at all... But it's there because I like to pick up friends where I can.
What happened here isn't what I had in mind when I shared this information, and makes me consider removing it. I'm going to remove the person's name to protect their privacy, so they'll just be referred to as <dick> for obvious reasons.

Want a commission from me?
Milkie 5:44 pm
Who're you again? x3
<Dick> 5:45 pm
Milkie 5:45 pm
I assume I'm supposed to see a picture there, but I don't. n.n;
<Dick> 5:46 pm
If you don't, oh well, not my problem
Milkie 5:47 pm
I see <Dick>. I don't recall knowing any <Dick>s though.
<Dick> 5:47 pm
<Dick> 5:51 pm
so do you or not?
Milkie 5:51 pm
You're <Dick> on FA too, right?
<Dick> 5:52 pm
Milkie 5:54 pm
Then you got like two other accounts... Why're they all banned?
<Dick> 5:54 pm
noyb [Milkie's note: This means "none of your business."]
<Dick> 5:57 pm
yes or no?
Milkie 6:00 pm
Well sir, I really must commend you. This is some fucking business model you have here. First, you message someone who doesn't even have you on their AIM, and just come out and ask if they want a commission - as if I should jump at the chance because you're some notable personality. But you're not, are you? You're some dickwad with three banned accounts.
Given the nature of this conversation, I can see why. You've got a lot of nerve getting all snippy with me when - SURPRISE! - I don't recognize the random asshole messaging me out of nowhere. No wonder you were banned three times. Jesus Christ, man.
If you don't have the gall to even explain why you were banned, then it colours your character in an unfavourable light. But that's the feeling I get from you anyways... unfavourable. So I guess it fits.
This is where we're going to stop talking now. Next time I suggest thinking twice before approaching somone and being the biggest fucking douche you can possibly be. Maybe then you'll be able to fool them into tossing you money.
Good day, sir. And fuck your couch.
And that's what happened.
So, to all my dear watchers, and anyone else who might read this...
Don't. Just fucking don't. There is absolutely no reason for me to put up with shit like that should you try to pull it. In knowing this, everyone would do well to note that I won't put up with it should it come along.
Also, if you're going to take commissions... don't do it like this. In fact, every time someone has come to me asking if I want to commission them, I don't. Approaching your customer seems pretty ass backwards to me... Unless you already know of their interest, you really ought to le tthem come to you. After all, if I wanted a commission, I'd damn well ask for it.
