His web site:
Toxic_Kisses why take his name as your own? unless of coarse you enjoy talking in third person. 031014
notme the funny thing is i'm pretty sure i read his little bit about decoherence somewhere else in the interent shuffle just recently, but i'm pretty sure it wasn't on his website 031014
a thimble in time To Sam Vaknin,

Firstly, welcome to Blather.
Secondly, it is quite obvious that you have completely bombarded this network with dozens of very high quality blathers. My hope is that this is a sign of earnest commitment to the Blather community and not a narcissistic attempt to attract attention to yourself or worse yet,
a cheap way of advertising your books to us. If you are here to interact, please stay, but if you are hear to preach, please go someplace else.
black it's funny how all the little blatherers come and go in a cycle

first they know it all
black oh and maybe I should have said something really poignant like

To THE Thimble!,
notme i googled vaknin after the first post last night/this morning :) 031014
minnesota_chris I believe it really is Sam Vaknin, but I think he doesn't really read our replies. Kinda like a lot of blatherers I know ;) 031017
stork daddy yeah just more proof that more than just a collection of blathes, we are a collection of people, a community who expects more than art, the mundane journalistic sort of communication that clarifies things. 031017
a thimble in time I emailed vaknin about his sudden output of blathers. He wrote back. He said, " is OK - it is posted with my permission."

I take it to mean that he doesn't mind people impersonating him as long as its solely for non-commercial purposes. If you want I'll forward you the email.
jane you should just post it 031017
a thimble in time Dear Yehuda,

I appreciate you concern - thank you.

But it is OK - it is posted with my permission.

Take care there and Khag Sukot Sameakh!

Dr. Sam Vaknin,

I fear someone is impersonating you and cutting and pasting your work on the website.

Yehuda (blatherer)
minnesota_chris :) what does yehuda mean? And in what language?
