Coming up in the interview rounds:

We are still hopeful of bringing you the interview, that we have been advised will be ASAP, we were granted with the newly established Vampire Court of Chicago – this one’s close to our heart of course. (Please note this is not a Court associated with the “Unity Project”

An interview with the Author of “Arcane Ramblings of a Teenage Vampire” is in progress and half done. We’ll have that for you soon barring fire, flood, earthquake or man-made disaster…

Don’t miss the second part of our interview with Goddess Rosemary Sahjaza as we continue to put to rest some of the rumours, guesswork, half-truths, misconceptions and other assorted comments that have been flying about lately.

Yeah, ooh… and speaking about other members of the wider overall community…
SWANS, our dear Swans – Black, White, any shade in between… without y’all we’d be a pretty sad bunch of Vamps. Blessings.

Crossroads 2018: Apologies, clarifications and observations

“To state the facts frankly is not to despair the future nor indict the past.”
~ John F. Kennedy ~

Written, edited and presented by

Tim

Good afternoon ladies and gentlemen of the modern Vampire culture,

I have committed a monstrous and most uncharacteristic error for which I need to make an apology.

In the editorial Crossroads 2018: Ageism or natural (d)evolution Part 2 I mistakenly attributed a comment to the wrong person. The comment that appeared in the report (as shown below in the green box) was mistakenly attributed to Ms. Hawk when it was, in fact, authored my Mr. C. R. Ostrowski.

I am deeply sorry for any misdirection , confusion or misunderstanding wrought by this error and deeply apologetic for any inconvenience or embarrassment caused to said participants.

The “Crossroads” series of editorials is my personal bye-line at RVL and does not involve, nor include the owners or any other staff member of the E-zine, as such, I take full responsibility for this mistake. I hereby undertake to do absolutely everything humanly, or Vampyrely, possible to avoid making any such mistake in the future.

As to the claims brought by Ms. Hawk in a PM to Lady M. Bey, our Assistant Manager at RVL, there was no slandera false spoken statement about someone that damages their reputation, or the making of such a statement ) either intended nor effected since the observations and comments were in written form which, of course, would define them as libel ( a piece of writing that contains bad and false things about a person ) if the reported commentary was not a direct, and factual, reproduction of the comments that were made at the time.

There was No intention of making any libellous comments at any time, simply to represent the content of a group encounter on a particular matter, or series of matters under discussion. 

If I may be allowed a purely personal observation, I would go so far as to suggest that there were a number of people involved in the discussion that would have just as strong a case for a class action law suit for defamation ( the act of harming someone’s reputation by saying, or writing, bad things about them )

It’s an awful slippery and confusing slope that we walk everyday in the modern Vampire culture and that’s probably why there haven’t actually been, to this writer’s knowledge anyway, any successful law suits commenced, or concluded, over “harsh words” online ~ who knows, I may be the first someday…!!!

You know, funny thing happened yesterday, I was listening to one of my music CD’s and a song came on that suddenly struck me as being one that may be appropriate in so many situations that many of the modern culture of living Vampires come across everyday when they venture on-line…

Sometimes the evils aren’t always wrong eh?

An important message from RVL

Presented by

Good afternoon to all our readers,

Earlier today we received a question about what we do at RVL, the question read something along the lines of;

“Why are you featuring this? Don’t you know that [so-an-so] has done this, this and this?”

I want to address that question for everyone, as we have done for the person who sent us the question.

At the very outset, the conception and action that led to the establishment of RVL, our owner, J. Reason, made the decision that RVL (RVN back then) would be absolutely neutral source of information and news.

In late 2010, when I and Lady M agreed to take on the running of the E-Zine that was impressed upon us very strongly. As we have grown and developed into RVL over the years we have always maintained that position. Now, if I, as Editor-in-Chief and Senior Staff Write something needs to be said then it goes under the banner of the “Crossroads” series – That is my by-line if you like.

With respect to any other material consider us to be like Switzerland. We WILL present such news, information, entertainment and other articles, reports and editorials that we feel will be of interest to a great many in the wider culture. We will NOT simply present material because we like people/friends nor exclude it because we don’t like certain people.

Personal likes/dislikes have NO Place in the running of J. Reason’s Real Vampire Life E-Zine. We operate under J’s rules because J. is the owner of RVL E-Zine.

Thank you.
T.
Editor-in-Chief
