My newest obsession….gone girl.

To the one person who has been missing me and my posts, I’ve been busy with my newest obsession, Cassie Maxwell.  I am sad to say my obsession is over.  It saddens me to say she has disappeared off the facebook.

For those of you who haven’t seen the video of Cassandra “Rain” Maxwell you have missed a wonderful example of motherly love, an example of mental illness, or just someone goofing off.  Ms. Maxwell has many different names she answers to, it appears Rain or Rayne is her favorite.  The self claimed psychic posted several videos on facebook and one has seemed to make her very popular.  In said video she rants about an elementary school taking out a criminal trespass notice on her.

After seeing the video, I found her on facebook and binge watched all of her videos.  I was in shock and awe of her and her craziness.  I also found some of the comments humorous but then I got sad. 

I was sad because I found out her story, which starts out with a car accident.  Apparently she was hit in the head and received some damage.  The extent of the damage is unclear from her videos; she did claim to have some eye injuries or eye pain and the aliens, yes aliens, came down and healed her eyes.

After the car accident she apparently decided to divorce her husband.  He then turned around and took the kids.  Now she is dealing with custody issues and the ex-husband is withholding her kids from her. She believes people are coming to her house to kidnap her and hold her for human trafficking.

This results in fabulous facebook live videos.  Some of these have over ten thousand views.  The most popular video was her rant in the car after receiving the criminal trespass order.  That video has received over 500,000 views.  Many news agencies are also referring to her video in effort to spread awareness of mental health issues.

This afternoon I went to her facebook page and it wasn’t there.  I am sad that I won’t get to find out what happens in her life, if she gets help or if she gets better, or if she spirals even more out of control. It’s very silly of me to wonder about a total stranger and her life. Maybe I am looking at her as a role model in the event that I get off my meds and start down the spiral of facebook rants. 

I do wonder though, was she like this before and on her meds?  Did she ever take meds to begin with, or was she totally normal before the accident?  Did the accident and any injury she might have had provoke this type of behavior?  Obviously I don’t know anything about her other than what she shared and I don’t know her story before the accident.   I would love to interview her, the ex, and the principle of the school.  A girl can dream right?

I do believe she would be an awesome caster on any of the trashy social broadcasting sites I watch!!!  Yes, I can dream. 

Whom the Gods would destroy

…they first make illiterate. With apologies to Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, I must note that as of late, the resident know-it-all of Ivlog has been increasingly erratic in her writing.

The other night I happened by her channel and the scrolling description was, as usual, detailing some absurd aspect of her tawdry existence. What caught my eye was “I was the victim of two attempted seduces…”. Now that just doesn’t make sense, and of course, me being me… well, I had to tell her so.

I pointed out her misuse of the word and made a couple of suggestions (“I was the victim of two attempted seductions” and so on) and just to twist the pen in the wound, I observed that grammar is hard, especially if you are from New York City, where English isn’t really spoken.

I know you will find this hard to believe, but I was actually kicked out of her chat. Amazing? Indeed.

Then, a mere 2 nights later, I made another sortie into the hostile territory of her channel and lo, she had changed her show description and now had an entirely new grammatical error on display. Once again, I pointed out her error and repeated my commiseration that grammar was difficult for one who was a denizen of New York City. Her anger was plain to see, as her current favorite butt-boy (Ian123456789) was in chat and “lol’d” at her mistake. Once again, I found myself looking at the familiar “You have been kicked from this channel” message.

I fear that Yetta’s wheels are coming off. Cocoa was right; her appointment with the ferryman draws near. Be sure to keep some change handy, Yetta. Charon does charge for the ride.

What does “severe” mean?

First, let’s set the table.

“DUE TO SEVERE ABUSE OF THE SYSTEM”

Cocoa and I are in the midst of a discussion about this notice. Cocoa is somewhat perplexed about what this even means and seeks to understand this notice in light of the recent change to the ToS. I am puzzled as to what “severe abuse of the system” is supposed to mean.

It is fairly indisputable that Cram only listens to a fairly small number of people on Ivlog, so it seems obvious that one or more of these people is getting trolled hard from IPs that Cram is unable to associate with a user account (welcome to the internets, Cram). So just how hard are these Friends of Cram (FoC) getting trolled? I have no idea. I have not seen any of this for myself. The people that I observe getting trolled the most are the socially inept (Jessica, Faroe, etc) who invite and encourage the trolls with their emotional and flamboyant reactions. I have no doubt they fill Cram’s inbox with complaint piled atop complaint, but that is just part of their nature.

Cram, your website is theoretically for adults. Your ToS states “This site is designated for the use of any person, 18 years of age or older.” Obviously, reaching the age of 18 (or 21, or 35, or 80) does not confer maturity, wisdom or emotional stability on anyone, and those limp-dicked motherfuckers are the ones that are troll magnets. I watched in person as JessicaLovesDrama called for a moderator to ban “mean guests” when she was unable to deal with the fallout of a run-in she had on Crossdresser Jack’s show. As a broadcaster, she had the tools to manage her show, but she worked herself into such a state that all she could do was weep and moan piteously on camera because people were being mean to her.

So I have to ask myself the following: is this issue being driven by a handful of marginal social retards filling up Cram’s inbox, or is there something going on amidst the FoCs that I am just completely unaware of? I will seek to enhance my understanding of what is driving this interesting Vaughn-like policy and report back when I have something that seems to make a modicum of sense.

Killing guest chat strikes me as terrifically counter-productive (as amply demonstrated elsewhere) to a social broadcasting site. I don’t see this current course of action ending well for site management or site users.

Cray Cray, 24/7

Yetta is back to screaming about Lizzy around the clock. Lizzy did this, Lizzy did that, Lizzy made up user names, Lizzy made a blog post, Lizzy made a twitter account, Lizzy wrote me a “lettah”, Lizzy catfished me, Lizzy called me a name, Lizzy parked in a tow-away zone, Lizzy kidnapped the Lindbergh baby, Lizzy was late returning a book to the library, Lizzy was responsible for the stock market crash… the list is endless.

Lizzy made my nose grow!

Yetta is also yelling about other ‘casters who are “putting her on the spot” by interrogating her (Yetta’s phrase) regarding the Great New Year’s Non-invitation of 2019 that had Yetta stuck in a 72 hour loop complaining about not being invited to an Ivlog show (I really do wish I was making this up). So far, she has mentioned BPink, Donny Donowitz, and “Jackie” Lee by name as broadcasters who put her on the spot when she entered their channels by asking her about her continuing Lizzy rants. Yetta states to her audience of Ian and guests that these above named broadcasters are nefarious ne’er do wells who seek to make her feel guilty for “crimes” that others have perpetrated upon her. “I’m innocent, I AM THE VICTIM”, Yetta cries to her small and mostly silenced audience.

Credit where it is due. When Donny told the old bat he had filed a ToS complaint against her (and whether he actually did or not is certainly open to speculation), it set her off like a dog with a roman candle shoved up its ass. Yetta is still running in circles, baying at the top of her considerable lungs about how innocent she is and how very guilty Donny is.

At some point, Yetta will get her medication adjusted again and she will enter a period of quiescence, but in the meantime Yetta is fully cranked up and venting her spleen to anyone that is willing to park in her channel for 30 seconds. Enjoy, people.
