I want to preface this all by saying that I’m not a white knight. I’ve no delusions of sweeping in to rescue the fair maiden in any situation, much less this one. I’m happily married, and fat and too lazy, really, to try and do something about all of this. Furthermore, I’m certain that of all people, Tam is the last person on Earth that would need me to rush to her rescue.
So none of this is posted in defense of Tam. Far be it from me to presume that she wants or needs my help. I want you all to read this as if I was writing it about a comment troll on Borepatch’s blog, as much as one on Tam’s. This is all posted because of my insatiable need for justice, and to point out that which is unjust, for all to see.
(And by all, I mean both of you who read this…)
This, gentle reader, is meant as an impeachment of the person who has been trolling her blog, and comment stalking her to the point to where she shut her blog down.
As is very typical of stalkers, he persists in showing up despite being told multiple times that he’s not welcome. He admits that he’s been banned under several names, and keeps changing his name so he can come back and troll her some more. He cannot stand that fact that she disagrees with him on several items. He proceeds under the delusion that:
- Tam owes him something, somehow, and that her kicking him off of her blog is a monumental injustice that simply cannot stand, and that he will not be ignored (crazy);
- Tam is somehow obligated to agree with him on all things, and if she disagrees, he is entitled to item 3 (insane);
- Tam deserves to be berated and abused for not accepting items 1 and 2 (batshit)
- Tam is obligated to present him only in a positive light, and portraying anything that he said in less than glowing terms is taking it “out of context” or “misinterpreting it” when in fact, any clear-thinking person could only interpret it the way Tam did.
He’s lost his bully pulpit in the form of Tam’s site, so he has resorted to posting his long, trollish rants on Tam’s roommate’s site. Roberta X, being the intelligent person that she is, left his rant up for all to see. Go, read.
He starts out by posting a threat to all of the people that have “threatened” him. Of course, I’ve seen no evidence at all that anyone has threatened him, but it is par for the course for the delusional to spin themselves into the victim role. He then makes a hilarious legal threat, which Popehat would have a heyday with. It even goes so far as to hint at saying “govern yourself accordingly, because I has multiple lawyers and I’m not afraid to use them!”
|I'm also a douchebag!|
He then moves into a long justification for why what he’s doing is totally right and proper, and in the process, essentially admits to being a troll stalker. Sort of like “I didn’t do anything wrong at all, you guys! All I did was say things that Tam didn’t like, keep saying them until she banned me, then changed my name multiple times, through multiple bannings, so I could keep coming back and saying those things, over and over again! I mean, seriously, what I did was totally rational!”
He peppers his rant with delusions of persecution, as if being asked to leave someone’s private property because you’re being a asshole is an injustice that he’s never heard of, and is the only person on Earth to ever be subjected to such a travesty.
He fills it with excuses, like the time when he was plainly referring to showing up somewhere that Tam was so he could “see his little Georgia Girl” (Tam is originally from Georgia) he claims that he was, like, totes talking about his wife, you guys, serial…
|"She lives in another town. You wouldn't know her, but she's totally hot!"|
And what, you might ask, is he saying that’s getting him banned? Well, read the screed, dear reader. In those three long-winded posts, I see him refer to Tam as bitter, barren, old, and “old maid”, a shrew, and a “shriveled shrew” (or other combination thereof) multiple times. I’m not here to debate whether he’s right or wrong about Tam. As I said, she can defend herself just fine. But I want to point out that if you make it a habit of entering someone’s living room, calling them such names, then whining your guts out because that person asked you to leave, you are really spinning some serious rationalization dances to convince yourself that YOU are the aggrieved party.
But seriously, can you imagine what insults like that must do to a person over time? No one but Tam knows why she didn’t have kids, but what if it wasn’t by choice? What kind of a total fuckhead runs around calling women “barren spinsters” and claiming that THEY are the victim? My wife and I tried for many years to have a child. If it turned out that we couldn’t, we would both have been heartbroken, and it would be a raw wound for the rest of our lives. But this guy wants to claim that Tam is being completely unreasonable for banning him for heaping on such abuse.
I’m just at a loss with this guy. I cannot even imagine the depth of his delusion, that he thinks that he is in the right and Tam is in the wrong here.
So if he comes here and reads this, allow me to posit a solution – come over here and comment troll ME, motherfucker. I’d actually enjoy it, and I’ve got zero buttons to push. You’ll be eating paste by the end of the week.
