Kultivate Magazine’s stooges commends The Whisperer for Free Publicity while John Herring Files a DMCA

John Herring owner Kultivate Magazine AKA the untouchable, let this be the last time you send a DMCA to us otherwise there will be a proper counter lawsuit against you and your magazine for harassment. Your attempts at bullying have been noted and will not be ignored for much longer. You really shouldn’t visit blogs and gossip sites searching for information about yourself because you may not often see or read things you like. If you and your stooges at Kultivate cannot take the criticisms, please get off the blogs.

We are a gossip blog (or maybe you don’t know what that is 🙄 especially for someone who runs a blog or magazine) and we are allowed to make criticism and we have a right to publish on issues whispered to us.
Your stooges flocked around the whisperer and commended us for free publicity; they are all welcome to it; as a gossip blog we are expected to create publicity for those we post about: but posting comments on our blog and sending us a DMCA That makes you all at Kultivate seem clueless and confused. Get. Your. Shit. Together.
We try to run a blog just like you do and while you are busy copying content from all over the world in your blog and magazine we at the whisperers are very sorry we never read your magazines and we have completely posted what we did based 100% on the whispers of your readers! Shouldn’t you be thanking us for a fair criticism and assessment from your readers? If you are not inclined to such positive criticisms, why don’t you take your magazine offline and share with your wife and team only? 

You can now go ahead and re-brand again after this post🙄.

  1. Well, well, well… Isn’t this intriguing. I have finished sipping my tea and am now ready to offer my commentary. I am absolutely fascinated by how much gossip and drama this magazine generates. Is this a reflection of the owners? Perhaps. Perhaps not. I do find it curious how the owners have this whole mentality centralized on the theme that “everyone is out to get them.” I do laugh at how on this post and the previous post (the critique of the September issue), all Eles does (and I’m assuming John is the other anons) is thank the Whisperer for the publicity, BUT neither address the actual critiques made. I understand deflection and if you failed to comment on the post, you could even claim taking the higher road. After all, actions speak louder than words, correct? But you don’t. The response of, “thanks for the free publicity,” is absolutely childish and illustrates that EVERY critique made about your magazine is valid. Like Cynnabunz says, invest in a copy editor so NEXT issue there will be NO negative critiques. It’s a simple concept.

    Or to avoid this drama all together, when a reader comes to you and points out some of your mistakes. Thank them for coming to you and fix it. Don’t insult them and call them a bitch simply because they were thoughtful enough to come to you with their critiques… and change SOME of it anyway. Now that I think about it John and Eles should probably THANK the Whisperer not for “free publicity” but for offering insight on how to improve for the October issue. Bravo Whisperer and their Whispers!

    • And why do you care what they do? The only reason why Kultivate is on this trash site is because the owner of this site, Joshuan Banx has an issue with John and has had one for the past 2 years. This site only exists to get views nothing more and to feed the wannabe mentally unstable ego of Joshuan. It’s trash at it’s best and do not tell someone they cannot insult someone. If they cannot take it, then don’t dish it out. How would you feel if you were trashed on a site like this on a daily basis? I know both John and Eles personally and they spend a great deal of money on Kultivate both in and out of Second Life and they do it for their love of the arts. And if the magazine is that bad why are you even reading it? Why is anyone reading it if it is supposedly that bad? It is nothing but sour grapes and bullshit, this entire site are both those things. A few days ago you tore apart another magazine. Whisperer if you think you can do sooo much better and to all of you anonymous people out there, then publish your own magazine. Let’s see it, we are waiting.

    • I dont have to post anon…whatever I want to say I can say it with my actual account. This is my last post here. If you dont like my magazine, dont read it. If you dont like my site, dont view it. If you dont like my sim, dont visit it. If you dont like me, mute me, block me, do whatever you have to do. The ball is in your court. If you want to criticize me, then stop hiding behind anonymous accounts and pseudonyms. Post your actual SL account name and we can go from there, if not I am finished talking to you.

      • That would be a valid point about you know… contacting you in-world BUT considering chatlogs are going around of how YOU conduct these in-world IMs you receive, all you will end up doing is muting anyone who critiques your work. All your talk is fairly “tough” sounding, John the Great Catfish, if you knew my account SL name and we “go from there,” will you attack me with your keyboard and call me names, when I point out the current issue’s areas of opportunity? If only. Goodbye! I look forward to reading further responses that you post as anonymous.

        • That’s not actually the only thing John here will do. He will bann you from his land and black ball you in every circle, if he can. John here has a HUGE history of doing that very thing with people he is finished using. John was not always in the art world. He became involved with it, when he met two very sweet and nice ladies who owned their own gallery. At that time, he was partnered to another lady (I think very highly of her so I’m leaving her name out of this). That would be the one that he tossed to the side though, after screwing around with Eles during the model competition. (I believe Eles won that competition, which he had been a judge on..wonder how she won that…)
          John noticed all the attention and accolades that the two gallery owners received and started hanging out with them, going so far as trying to insinuate himself into the family, by calling himself their brother. He would listen to every word, learn all the different photo techniques and how to run a gallery. This was his beginning…suddenly one day he up and starts a gallery and the antics really began. Due to his ego, his temper and his intolerance, he didn’t last in the family long at all. No one was willing to put up with his bullying and it was made clear to him that he was not welcome.
          After that, every chance he got, he would badmouth their gallery, badmouth them and even banned the one from shopping the one day, kicking her off of the event sim with no warning..side note, nothing was said, he just kicked.
          Recently it was brought to light that if artists were showing at Obsession, he was willing to kick, ban and mute them from his sim, even if they had a show going on at that point with him.
          All this asshattery with John has been going on for approx/almost 2 years. In those two years, I have heard from MANY people that they cannot stand him, do not want anything to do with him and they warn others not to trust him, for good reason.
          John will attempt to bully you, intimidate you, and will try hard to blackball you. That is his MO. Personally, my opinion regarding him is that he suffers from a Narcissistic Personality disorder, but that is my opinion.

          • So now you want to bring Addison Summerwind and Lily into it. We can start an entire site on those two. If you want to make them out to be saints, why dont you tell the true story?? Addison was whoring around with Travsolar, who was partnered to Cassie at the time and yet she considered Trav to be her brother. Addison was also with Ghost at the same time she was screwing around with some SL Chippendale named Hardriding.

            As for the person you mentioned that John was partnered to, Emma Portilo, that was way before he and Eleseren hooked up, he wasnt even a judge at MVW that year, Emma was COO of BOSL at the time. And as for teaching John about art, rubbish, he learned everything from Shakti Adored, who was a damn good curator and artist in her own right.

            And if Addison and Lily supposedly were friends to Emma, why did Addison try to whore her way with John?

            And as for banning artists because they are showing at Obsession Exposed that is not what happened. The artist in question, Cherrycarr Resident is a trouble maker, she was kicked out of some Gorean sims for her bs and she even tried to go around saying that she was banned from Wicca’s Wardrobe, because she was too stupid to read the notice that they had a script counter during an event that banned visitors if they were over a certain script count during a heavily trafficked event.

            So before you spread lies about people, tell the truth….

            • Well you obvious have either 1. not been there for all of this shit or 2. you are taking John’s words for this or 3. you head is so far up his ass, it makes sense that you have it all screwed up. So true story eh?
              1. Addy and Trav never screwed around. Trav and I were also good friends and no, nothing ever happened between them ever. Cassie did have jealousy issues though and accused a few people of messing with Trav. No one in the family was messing around with him.
              2. Ghost was ages ago, looooong before Hard was even in the picture. Ghost was before Lion and they were not together either, when Hard was around. Before you try to say something about Lion here, I can assure you that I’m friends with him as well and Addy didn’t cheat on him.
              3. Emma was in fact still with John when he and Eles started to whore around. Less than 1 week after Emma and John broke up, he and Eles were already announcing to everyone that they were together.
              4. John didn’t even know the art world till he met Addy and Lily. He may have learned more later with Shakti but, it did start with them.
              5. Only in Johns’ delusional and diseased mind, would Addy ever even flirt with him, much less try anything more. John is a warped little freak, so I’m not surprised he is still trying to say this shit.
              6. That is actually the first time I have ever heard about Cherry. I was actually talking about a couple of other artists that he pulled that shit with. I don’t even know Cherry, so that was news to me but it does show that he loves to ban fast, which I do know from experience, he does do that.
              John, from my experience with him is a poser and a major user. When you no longer have what he wants, he dumps you and then trashes you, making up the wildest stories. John has a reputation alright, one where alot of people do not like him at all for very good reasons. He has used, manipulated, lied to, screwed over and trash talked quite a few individuals.
              Oh and the next time you try to jump on someone, make sure YOUR facts are straight AND that they were not there for ALL of this. Stop drinking John’s stupid kool-aid please, this just made you look like a little puppy of his, yapping about something you were not there for and looking foolish in the process.

  2. What? this magazine Kultivate has <1000 people in it's group. Of those maybe 10% probably care enough to read it, minuscule readership at best. So looking through this blog, or whatever it is. It's clear to me that this many articles about a marginal and largely unknown magazine in sl would infer that the writers are either working at kultivate or have previously done so. Both this Kultivate and sl whisperer should be renamed to "MUCH ADO ABOUT NOTHING" i'm afraid.

  3. I am not hiding, as you can see from my post name here. Kultivate exists to promote the Arts in SL. It doesn’t make any money, it doesn’t even cover costs, it is GENUINELY altruistic, and in memory of John’s rl dead sister. We support artists, designers, writers and other creative people, just ask around. I am dumbfounded at the sheer mean spiritedness of this. People attacking Kultivate because it is successful. Whoever is behind this frankly needs to look at the mote in their own eye. Shame on you all… frankly you are poor specimens of the human race if all you can do is knock down genuine altruism..wow

    • Oh, a site whoes main purpose is to entertain, you call shallow and a poor specimen of the human race. When you second life partner called me a bitch for contacting him about some small mistakes I noticed in your issue? A man, who says he is adult enough to take criticism and who openly asked for criticism by IM or a notecard; attacks me by saying, “I’m sorry you’re such a bitch,” and than mutes me. That relies me he didn’t care about making his magazine better. Mother tells me he likes to antagonize people and disappear because he isn’t adult enough to have a civilized conversation. That is not a man. That is a person who is taking a hobby too seriously. That is a person who would rather lower himself to such an unprofessional level that I cannot, for the life of me, believe someone in his position would do. I’m sorry you and your second life partner are so insecure that you need to deflect and attack others, instead of putting time and work into your hobby. It shows, sadly, you’re magazine would be that much better if you took the time to check for errors in your magazine. Hence, why I suggested you get a copy editor or someone who could look over your magazine and check for mistakes. Thst way, there would be a smaller chance of visible mistakes being found. But no, when I explained to your second life partner thst I found four mistakes, that some were later changed, he got defensive and attacked me for suggesting things to make your magazine better. In conclusion, this is a virtual game where most people log in to have fun and escape their realities for a little bit. To have so much anger and contempment for a site or a person or a group of people is ultimately sad and I hope you can eventually find a balance in your second life.o

      • Oh I know who you are..Cynnabunz. You won a free Edge Bootcamp. I sent you the contract purely for the record as you had no fees to pay. You were supposed to sign it and send it back (it was all explained). You didn’t, then tried to rip me a new one over it when the course started without you. I sent you a new contract (with further explanation and a further free offer of a future course) and you never bothered replying. Then you started picking on the magazine…I am smelling a set up here. Typical, and further reinforces my point about mean minded people

        • Let’s get one think straight, I did not rip you or anything. Here is the real tea, I missed the initial bootcamp session and contact you about not hearing anything after finding your hanger at your event, to no reply about it. You did contact me later and told me you had migraine which I am sorry you had. Without knowing that is why were offline, I contact your Second Life Partner, and told him I was the winner of this competition you had and I hadn’t receive any information from you. Five days later, your Second Life Partner said he would let you know, that same day I hear back from you. You informed me that you had a migraine and than offered me another free session on your own accord that I could attend you next bootcamp. I never asked for another invitation to your bootcamp nor demanded one. Instead of declining, I never responded to you about it. I lost interest , and no longer want to attend your bootcamp. Since it was a free session I didn’t think you would have cared so much about one person not attending it. If that is ripping you a new one, I would hate to see someone really come at you. So I am sorry if that came off as rude, but that is nowhere near “ripping you a new one” that you claim I did to you. I have the chat logs to show you if you would like to see them, and show you I’m not lying about any of these facts. As to your other point, nearly two weeks later, when I contacted your Second Life Partner, it was to inform him of mistakes I saw in your magazine, and I contacted privately. But when I see lying happening and twisting the truth around, I had to say something. Going back to what I was saying. I told your partner about the issues I saw and suggested a copy editor might help find some of these mistakes before you uploaded them. Instead, I was met with hostility, anger, and rudeness from your Second Life Partner, and now you. I have never talled you or him out of name. I am not that immature that I need to lower myself to name calling like that. He didn’t know me from adam, and for his ask me why I am bitching to him or do I have something useful to say and later on call me a bitch. I will give him credit, and say he said I have the right to bitch to him about issues I saw, but he had the right it mute me, which he did. All that, that is what a mean-minded person is. That is someone who attacks and get defensive over a criticism. I could have simply not mentioned anything and let your magazine continue on with the misspelling of avatars names, low quality images that looked to have been stretched out, font color blending into the background images, as to make reading a your headers harder to read. I wish I never said anything and let those issues stay there. And there were just a lot of small issues that could have been fixed if just reviewed before being sent out. But like in many countries, when a reader sees and issue, they contact the editor and usually the editor will add an “editor’s note” denoting the mistake and fixing it. The editor does not attack the reader for sending in the issues they see, and the editor know not to called people out of name. That is again, what a mean-minded person does. So I saw that some things were change, which is great that you took some of my advise, even though I was attacked for even bring those to your attention, but that’s okay. And for the record, I was told about this site by a friend after reading about how other people noticed similar issues in your magazine. I have no connection to this site besides being a commenter. So I’m sorry your set-up theory is debunked.

If you hate the magazine, fine hate all you want, but what are you accomplishing whining? They arent going to close, they arent going to stop doing what they do, so you might as well shut up about it and move the fuck on

    • Altruism: 1. or selflessness is the principle or practice of concern for the welfare of others. 2. when we act to promote someone else’s welfare, even at a risk or cost to ourselves.
      That is the definition of altruism, just to make sure you know what it really means Eles. Putting that word in a sentence and using it to refer to you and John, is what many would call a total oxymoron.
      Kultivate is basically a love letter to yourselves and most people can see that. You two are the biggest users that SL has, so using the word ‘altruism’ to make yourself look better, is insulting.
