Description:

Cmon vote this down. I want to see it at 0%.

Then I shall change 7 pixels to a different shade and repost it as soon as it drops of the front page, or when someone else abuses the submission process (Hi Tim), whichever comes soonest.

I shall NOT, in tradition of this style of submission, be making comment on my abuse of the site (But will argue about the nature of my opinions, and respond to praise ;-)).

It is my right to abuse this site and ignore all of you so I shall.

Changed 7 pixels to a lighter shade as this was getting dangerously close to dropping off the front page.

Changed the title slightly so as to be the first item in the list when submissions are viewed alphabetically. There really is no need to look any further then. Remember "I know better than you". (Wanders off to consider self importance and infliction of opinions on the rest of the internet/world/universe...)

Changed license. Not in any way to be connected with the fact that the submission was about to drop off the front page...

Now with 100% extra duck silhouette. For more information about my beliefs and the siginficance of ducks please wait for further announcements regarding where to send cash in return for enlightenment.

It seems Tim has actually bothered to reply to one of my questions. However, as he has removed (at this time) the wallpaper the reply was attached to this can only be viewed via his profile http://www.kde-look.org/usermanager/search.php?username=timbrown527

In order that it should actually be read I'm going to quote here:


'I'm not "hiding". There is nothing to hide from. I just have gotten to the point where I don't care to engage with people who curse, scream and get intensely abusive. In the early days I would discuss things but I've found that no answer is "satisfactory", in most cases.

You know, you might be happy to know I'm backing off for a while. But don't expect me to give some kind of "explanation" for myself.'


So it seems Tim is going away for a while, but with the veiled threat that he'll be back and that he thinks there is no problem.

Ok, I'll give the guy a chance. From now on I'll judge him on his behaviour from this point onwards, not on the past. We shall see what happens.

I'm going to let this paper die naturally now... I suggest you let it go too.

Now we are starting into a new diffrent age.
Lamers take notice to Linux and show over their small world and can't understand their own world now.
What should they do ?
Diss everything and try the lamest things they could.
Sorry, but You show one more reason to love this Page and everything at this page, caus a lame one like you found this page.
This means we have brutal eyebleeding good stuff here, and now, lame things , too.
Wow, i gave ya Good, cause you make it happend to got everyhing on one page, gettin more and more complete.
Thx, you push this page up to the unbelivable Limit.

Otherwise, is it possible to make it a little bit Glossy, Aquastyle or something like that and in diffrent Colours, this would be fine.

One would hope that we have learned the effect of zealotry on those that said zeal is aimed towards. People tend to recoil from it, because it is, in fact, subtly abusive to have something screamed into your face. A message of "You're wrong, wrong, wrong, wrong, wrong!!! You're gonna BURN IN HELL!!!" just ain't gonna cut it, post-age-of-reason.

There is a reason that a very recent Zogby Poll showed that religious fundimentalists are the second-most unpopular group of people in the US, after prostitutes. It is situations like this, situations that spring from zealotry and immoderation.

People might want to remember that zealotry and immoderation just happen to be really great tools for manipulation on the part of those who want to control you, through your religious beliefs.

What have we learned? I've learned once again that the mere display of a religious belief that people don't like is percieved as shoving it down their throats. And I've learned that the ratings system is no longer a way for people to discern the overall feel on the quality of the work in question. Apparently it's now what the preceived message of the work is that gets rated as well.

I've kept silent on this issue for the entire time it's been going on. And I'll admit that much of Tim's work is unpolished to say the least. And I haven't downloaded many of his wallpapers myself, however a few of them appealed to me so I did. Of course, I ignore most all of the wallpaper here unless the title or thumbnail looks interesting enough for me to invesitgate it. But I don't download much wallpaper, Christian or otherwise. I check here for things I do use. I check for updates on favorite superkaramba themes, or new and interesting ones, screensavers, splash screens, etc.

And now, I'm hesitant to even share with this community any work of my own. My religion is such a pervasive part of my life that it seeps into essentially every aspect. So, even if a work of mine isn't particularly religious in nature, it's likely to incorporate that religion somehow. And apparently, such things are not welcome here. And, of course, there are those things that I may some day want to create that are explicitly religious in nature. For example, there is this screen saver that I had downloaded back in my windows days that I might decide to port. But now, apparently despite a near complete lack of user created screen savers for KDE, it seems that my work would not be accepted by the majority here no matter what the quality. But maybe I'm wrong.

But you need to attach some KDE gears to that duck... to make it fit into my desktop more.

This is, by far, the funniest thing I have seen on this site. Not so much the wallpaper, but the comments are hilarious. I read them all and almost fell out of my chair. Ever thought of posting this on other sites for the sheer entertainment value?

Seems like the 'voting down' stuff won't get this wallpaper below 30 per cent by the time it drops of the front page...looks like you superceeded Kenny Brown in this respect ;)

...great. Just what the doctor ordered for that fuckhead Tim. I'm pretty tired of seeing his religous wallpapers, not to mention the lack of any art skill or talent whatsoever they display. The guy's a schmuck.

If you read his bio, he says Jesus saved him from a life of pornography addiction. He's typical of many recovering addicts in that they grasp fervently onto some other cause or activity to fill the void left by their addiction. While I'm happy he changed his life for what he perceives to be the better, I don't want to hear another fucking word about Jesus on kde-look.

I come here for KDE related material. Tim's wallpapers simply *aren't* kde related. End of story. Any argument to the contrary is inherently and intrinsicly flawed. It would be one thing if his wallpapers were a) artistic or b) accepted by the kde-look community. It's clear through the voting system that neither is true.

Stop abusing the voting system and mucking up the kde-look frontpage, you fucking bible-beater. No one cares about how great your life is now. Fuck off, got it?

I think I'll start taking pictures dogshit on my lawn, and post them to kde-look. Because it's kde related because it's an image that can be used as a background. Right?

Please endow me with you wisdom then. How else do you deal with someone like Tim?
He doesn't respond to questions. Voting him down as a community doesn't work.

Yes it's childish and sinking to his level.
BUT, make it so I can't do this and then you stop the abuse of the site!

Or do just want to sit by and let all and sundry use this site as a vehicle for their personal beliefs?

For how long... I've ignored him for as long as I can. I got fed up. I wasn't prepared to just keep waiting for someone else to take some action...

He doesn't care what you think. Why else does he not take note of the voting system that clearly show the vast majority are against his abuse of the site?

Thank you for you praise (Though of course it is no more than I expect or deserve).

Actually, I was just musing on the audacity of others to post artwork to my site and wondering if I should produce some more artwork.

Your comment has given me pause for thought though. I think it is all this "Art" and "Eye Candy" that is getting in the way of my message.

So if all posters would kindly remove their artwork from the site. Once this has been completed I shall bestow the benefit of my wisdom in regular bite size portions for you contemplation and benefit.

You have outdone yourself on this great wallpaper! It looks very good on my desktop, and the colors blend in with my icons, unlike some wallpapers with contrasting colors that shock my eyes a bit too much.

The effects are amazing!! Which graphics program did you use?

I'm looking forward to more wallpapers.

P.S. Maybe you could make this one in
different colors/resolutions.
