That's not me.

Also while I'm here, update I've purchased a pack of tarot cards.

I bet it was either Tessie or, more likely, an overly sensitive HD texture guy, Krispy.

Which desk did you get? Would've been a horrible adviser, because my only non-mainstream favorite is rather animesque, otherwise I'm familiar only with Aleister Crowley Tarot. That anime-style desk is damn good, but did not want to promote it for the reason that the author is a bitch so full of herself she does not even deign to reply fans' questions, myself included, but isn't above taking donations, despite being an established pro for 10 years. Not to say, her stuff is quite popular and isn't cheap.

I got the Rider Waite Tarot Deck, it's sort of the go to. I was familiar with its designs before I even knew its name. I also got a Steampunk Tarot Deck.

Nothing to worry about Barabbah, someone just thinks they are funny.

He copied your old name, changed one letter (like he's trying to pretending to be you) but took the new photo profile which you changed with the new name.

I'm sure this was purpoted to be an insult to your dev skills in a Tarot metaphor, he posted a card 21, World/Universe, but turned it upside down (aka "weak" position), besides he named that account TheShaLLowMan. In other words, by this he meant "you're too shallow to design a good universe/setting".

Although, strictly speaking, there is no such a thing as weak or bad cards in Tarot, in this case a reversed card means warning. Therefore, the message could be read as "unless you reconsider your ways, dig deeper and open your mind to new possibilities, the universe will come out bland and shallow".

Almost sure it was Krispy, because he had thrown a few quite subtle insults at VtM and Bloodlines fans (and, by the way, implied that other modders suck once or twice) before I chimed in into his thread. The guy revels in the idea that he's all smart, clever and witty, while everyone else are so retarded they doesn't even get. Very American.

Makes sense. I have no intention of stopping or altering what I do on the behest of an ill meaning stranger.

Certainly it was meant as an insult, not warning. Did the second interpretation only as an illustration for more proper Tarot.
By the way, that artist I've mentioned even has an artbook named "The Bitch Queen", so she is perfectly self-aware on the matter and enjoys this, which makes it even more abhorrent. Sometimes ignorance about the artist behind art is bliss indeed.

Of course, hence why I have no intention of altering my course.

So on top on the first charge he used a symbol as an insult without even knowing it isn't an insult. Not only an asshole but also an idiot. "I declare the sentence of twenty years of electric chair, case closed." (cit.)
