It never fails to amaze me about the amount of people out there who are willing to screw over others to gain their 15 minutes of fame. It never fails to amaze me that I too, have fallen victim to this treachery. And the beginnings of deceit are all so innocent.
Let me be your friend. I admire your work. I can do this and that for you. This is the standard schmoozing bullshit used to get inside your head. Then we move onto the next phase of subterfuge.
The conversation usually starts with.... what do you think of my idea? This is meant to get you to share ideas of your own. Do Not. You are dealing with a blood sucking, back-stabbing, idea stealing parasite who has illusions of grandeur and does not care who he/she has to crawl over to make it so. Let's take a look at what the Havamal says about this (the Havamal is ancient Northern Wisdom that can be used by all, not just Asatruars/Heathens).
Verse 1 - When you venture out of your home keep all your wits about you. You never know where an aggressor may hide. Weather it be in person or over the Internet, be careful.
Verse 18 - A worldly man knows what makes men do the things that they do and treats them accordingly. See verse 1. And the content above.
Verse 29 - A man with an unbridled tongue pushes folks away from him and in return gains nothing but their ill-will. Those that will do as above eventually open their mouths.
Verse 46 - If you must work with a man that you feel is untrustworthy play along with him and use his deceit to your advantage. Keep your mouth shut and ears open, watch your back, and read Verse 1, again.
Verse 65 - A man needs to listen and be careful with his words; he should not put any trust in a stranger. Often many words spoken to strangers come back with harmful intent. This verse does not need further comment; it speaks for itself.
There are more verses within the Havamal that can be used for the above but the above 5 are enough to get my point across: the plotters and planners are out there and will do what they can to further their grandiose plans. Guard yourself from these petty people.
The above Havamal verses and so much more can be found within My Books, The View - One Man's Living Asatru With Help From The Havamal, and, The View - Act Two. These two books and the rest of my work can be found on Amazon.com and other fine book retailers.
