Atheist Shoes Revisited, David Bonney on Atheists Talk »« What Mother Jones Missed

Prepare for the Blazing

Now that “Elevatorgate” is in the news for his harassment on Twitter, I figured news sources might as well know that this isn’t just the one account with the puerile name-calling and the obsessive Storifying. Just scratching the surface, there are several. I also named his associate, Edie Kendel/AmbrosiaX, because the fact that people who do this are being aided by others within our community is contested, and thus, important.

So now, according to Edie, I guess I’m gonna get it.

@Trinoc_ 27: @AmbrosiaX I assume you’ve seen this: http://freethoughtblogs.com/almostdiamonds/2013/08/27/what-mother-jones-missed/

@AmbrosiaX: @Trinoc_ Interesting. She probably should have reached out to Dana before guessing. Perhaps it’s time I formally introduced myself to Zvan.

@AmbrosiaX: Stephanie Zvan, I will have to get over laughing at how incorrect your assumptions were before I blaze the sh*t out of you. Thank you, truly

@Metaphoenix42: @AmbrosiaX In what way? @Trinoc_

@AmbrosiaX: @Metaphoenix42 Patience. @Trinoc_

@Metaphoenix42: @AmbrosiaX lol you tease @Trinoc_

@SubManUSN: @AmbrosiaX You have to admit, it kind of takes some of the light off of PZ and the rape accusations.

Nope. No schism here.

@AmbrosiaX: @SubManUSN Yes… there is another pair of soiled hands in all of that mess. Her narcissism makes her write foolish things.

@SubManUSN: @AmbrosiaX I seriously have to force myself to read through Zvan’s writing. She’s just so smarmy and self-righteous.

@AmbrosiaX: @SubManUSN It is like walking through a maze of cacti with hot coals under foot.

@desertyard: @SubManUSN Do what I do! It’s super easy. Don’t read it. @AmbrosiaX

@AmbrosiaX: @desertyard Well, let’s just say that Stephanie must be dying for me to introduce myself.  @SubManUSN

@desertyard: @AmbrosiaX Are you the target for this week’s drama blogging? @SubManUSN

@AmbrosiaX: @desertyard Ah, yes. She must have sipped a dose of Brave juice. @SubManUSN

@AmbrosiaX: @NotungSchwert @desertyard @SubManUSN She is too clever! How will anyone ever speak again with the mastermind, Zvan, gunning for us?

@DACrosse: @AmbrosiaX Now I can aspire to annoying her into an idiotic comment. Yay! @NotungSchwert @desertyard @SubManUSN

@AmbrosiaX: @NotungSchwert @desertyard @SubManUSN In all seriousness, it is. I am going to make sure everything she has been involved in is exposed.

@Eunecromancer: @AmbrosiaX @NotungSchwert @desertyard @SubManUSN Please DM me with a pastebin or document or something

‏@AmbrosiaX: @Eunecromancer I saw her less than knowledgeable attempt at pointing fingers at me. Patience, everyone will see the true Zvan.

@Eunecromancer: @AmbrosiaX Can you give me a hint at least? Are you simply exposing a collection of naughty (even for FTB) frozen blog links?

‏@Eunecromancer: @AmbrosiaX Please I’m salivating

@Ametkhos: @Eunecromancer @AmbrosiaX Muhahahahahahaha 8D

@Eunecromancer: @AmbrosiaX AMBROSIAAMBROSIA

@AmbrosiaX: @Ametkhos @Eunecromancer It’s better to hit the mark then throw wildly. Zvan’s foibles exemplify the danger of throwing poo at a wall…

@AmbrosiaX: @Ametkhos @Eunecromancer …and hoping something sticks. I aim for (and will hit) the #bullseye

@aratina: @AmbrosiaX Sorry, but I think you never really cared if people knew who you were, right?

@AmbrosiaX: @aratina The answer to that, whether “no” or “yes,” is irrelevant to what Zvan did. It was inappropriate and done with malicious intent.

Screen capture of tweets. Text provided in the post.

@AmbrosiaX: @hanscs @aratina She has no information about my relationship, or lack thereof, with EG. But, this isn’t the 1st time she’s put unverified..

@AmbrosiaX: @hanscs @aratina or misleading info out there. It has not gone unnoticed.

@AmbrosiaX: @aratina You have questioned why we talk to EG, despite the fact that he has never doxxed or lied. Supporting Zvan is foolish. @LazySavant

Here’s my “unverified” information I included about Kendel: “The only person I know of who works with Elevatorgate is Edie Kendel, a Florida woman who goes by AmbrosiaX on Twitter.” It’s not exactly unverified. She’s very open about working on the blog. It’s in her Twitter bio and everything. I also verified the Florida location, since it was originally given to me by someone who isn’t always careful with the facts.

@AmbrosiaX: Yes, it’s me, “sugar dick.” RT @sarahlicity: @FakeRobotGamer may be of relevance to you: “What Mother Jones Missed” http://freethoughtblogs.com/almostdiamonds/2013/08/27/what-mother-jones-missed/

@FakeRobotGamer: wow what an attention-seeker. why do you crave attention so much? @AmbrosiaX @sarahlicity

@AmbrosiaX: . @FakeRobotGamer @sarahlicity News flash: I’ve never spoken to Stephanie. How am I seeking attention? P.S. I am a woman… surprise!

Never? Not here? Or here? Uh-huh.

@felch_grogan: @AmbrosiaX come clean. You’re a sweaty 300lb Polish truck driver @FakeRobotGamer @sarahlicity

@AmbrosiaX: @felch_grogan Thanks to Zvan, my cover is blown. #uninvitedguest

@felch_grogan: @AmbrosiaX Its a testament to crippled intellects that they can only respond via personal attack and harm. @szvan is the cheapest & nastiest

@AmbrosiaX: @felch_grogan She seems to be curious about me. She is going to have an introduction soon enough. @szvan

So, whee, a person who already talks shit about me is going to talk some more shit about me. Did I mention whee? I’ll prepare to get scared when I wake up from my nap.

Comments

  1. Anthony K says

    Holy shit, I’ve seen WWE heels get in the ring with less self-hype and flexing than that.

  2. unbound says

    Got to hand it to AmbrosiaX…he makes my teenage daughter look extremely mature in comparison.

    IMHO, anyone who uses Twitter as their primary tool to discuss any serious topic is either foolish, deceptive, or not very bright.

  3. carlie says

    Definitely has a “trying to recapture the social status she had in high school when the currency was talking shit about other girls” feel about it.

  4. skemono says

    I can’t even follow what she’s going on about here. So you wrote that this AmbrosiaX person is a known accomplice of a serial harasser. And she seems to be indignant about that? And therefore… she’s going to start harassing you?

  5. Great American Satan says

    Oh, it’s Eucli-this Death-that. We miss your puppets! Give it another go.

    Anyhoo, I also fail to imagine what’s going to happen that’s so exciting. Though maybe she’s threatening to physically assault you with all of that. Worth considering the next time you do a public appearance near Florida.

    And honestly, why does she feel aggrieved? She publicly associates with these creeps. If someone recognizes her name and chooses not to work with her in a meatspace context, it’s someone she had ideological beefs with in the first place. And it’s not like our side is the one known for sending rape and death threats.

  6. Anthony K says

    It was unverified and done with malicious intent.

    Oh? Is malice bad now?

    GET READY FOR THE MALICE-FREE BLAZE

  7. says

    Hehe, she got all mysterious about @aratina, @latsot, @hyperdeath and a few others a while back when we annoyed her… Few oblique comments about Leeds and she’d Rob someone or something and it turned out that Rob she was talking about was @latsot, he isn’t that shy about this, but we were ALL Rob O_o … Yup all his sockpuppets. Mykeru joined in to continue the “dox”, again @latsot isn’t that shy about who he is, and Mykeru got it wrong. Doxxed Rob as a computer scientist with awesome hair working in London. They really are pathetic. So I await the big reveal that you are Yevgeny Svan (Bound to spell the name wrong), nuclear physicist and Stasi escapee from East Germany. Or something equally ridiculous.

    Also ElevatorGATE absolutely has doxxed someone IMO… Interesting, looking for the link he has deleted the evidence from his blog… Embarrassed by something? Still here tho: http://atheiststoday.com/blogs/elevatorgate/?p=1744

    Can see first comment is Skepticat_UK asking who “Katy H*” is, he edited to remove the name when she complained. EG tried to dox her and found SkeptiKat’s name instead – which is not particularly easy to find. One of his fans concocted a ridiculous story of him accidentally mistyping her name in Twitter (said one char different, err no its three) and finding SkeptiKat’s profile in Twitter, which also doesn’t have her name on it. So nice try there!

    So yeah almost true – EG has not doxxed anyone he intended to dox. Didn’t stop him trying however.

  8. says

    So, let me get this straight: You have “incorrect assumptions” about her being involved in a harassment campaign and so she’s going to “blaze the shit out of you” (as in, some kind of harassment) in order correct your mistake. Yeeeaaaahhh. Irony can be pretty ironic sometimes.

  9. says

    Ha, just looked up SkeptiKat on Twitter and she is not Katy H* (She is a Katy A*). So much for @beagrie the brave ElevatorGATE defenders “theory” on how EG “accidentally” tried to dox her by mistyping the name into Twitter. He clearly went looking for the name of the person he was ridiculing by calling a “Silly Girl” for wanting to call out misogyny.

  10. Stacy says

    Hot coals and cacti? She fails Remedial Metaphor.

    Thanks for sharing this, Stephanie. I needed a laugh today.

  11. shari says

    color me confused…..she is going to ‘blaze’ you….for mentioning that she works with a stalker.

    Mentioning her real name.

    50 shades of confused here. Can someone get a real response from her as to what was malicious about naming her as a co-worker (or is it really friend? ally? not clear on this.) of e.g.

    or is it likely to be more sturm und drang in response….

    Who has this much time to be so publicly…odd?

  12. Wowbagger, Designated Snarker says

    Blazing? ‘Damp squib’ seems more likely. Or perhaps it’s a petard she’s lighting and, like her pal Sara Mayhew not too many days ago, it’s entirely possible she’ll be hoist with it herself.

  13. says

    Hehe, she got all mysterious about @aratina, @latsot, @hyperdeath and a few others a while back when we annoyed her… Few oblique comments about Leeds and she’d Rob someone

    Heh. And Oolon, don’t forget how I was “JT Eberhard” for several weeks according to @elevatorGATE, who fed that fabrication to @AmbrosiaX, who spread it around on Twitter, YouTube, and who knows where else. It’s easily verifiable that I am not JT from any number of angles, though I admire the work he does for atheism and think he’s a generally great person. I can’t help but feel AmbrosiaX is an unwitting pawn in all this. She ought to do herself a favor and ditch @elevatorGATE.

  14. Great American Satan says

    Huh… Just thought about the fact she’s using a photo of herself for an avatar.
    Was she even trying to be anonymous at all?

  15. Adamo says

    Unwitting pawn? She may be wit-less, perhaps even wit-free, but unwitting? Seems way too enthusiastically nasty for that.

  16. F [is for failure to emerge] says

    #5 skemono:

    I can’t even follow what she’s going on about here.

    It’s either intentional or she’s that stupid. What kind of “wait for it” is necessary for a build-up to “no, that wasn’t me, I didn’t do that”?

    Wait, that’s not the issue at all? It’s just that someone not allied with you pointed out what you do? Which then requires some sort of “counter-offensive” of trying to “dig up dirt” on someone? It’s one thing responding to facts, omissions, or lies. It’s another thing entirely to be retaliatory in the manner of a particularly irrational teenager with a grudge who has got nothing and should know it.

    Pffft.

  17. says

    “Oh, I’m gonna get you back. I’m gonna get you good for that one. You won’t even know what hit you, it’ll be so bad. Just you wait, when you least suspect it, boom, I’m gonna come down hard on you. Just wait and see, you’ll be sorry.”

    So much bluster.

  18. says

    How dare you repeat in public things that I’ve said in public; how dare you make public my public associations; how dare you talk publicly about me based on information I use publicly everywhere and make no effort to conceal; omg harrassment n’ doX0Rz I’m totes gonna blaze you with dox0rz n’ harrassment for Great Justice™!!11!1eleventy!!1*

    Sigh. If it wasn’t so toxically stupid it’d be funny.

    Actually, it’s still kinda funny.

  19. medivh says

    Gotta say, I found this particular quote eye-opening:

    [Stephanie Zvan] must have sipped a dose of Brave juice.

    Seems to me that that’s an admission that #BraveHeroes are harrassers we like. If someone we don’t like sipped “Brave juice” and produced accusations/libels/whatever, doesn’t that mean that “Brave juice” produces shit that shouldn’t be liked? Only, if it’s done by people we do like then that’s ok! Right?! RIGHT?!

    Seems like a complete misstep on AmbrosiaX’s behalf to me if she’s going to hint at something like that.

  20. says

    Adamo:

    Unwitting pawn? [Edie Kendel] may be wit-less, perhaps even wit-free, but unwitting? Seems way too enthusiastically nasty for that.

    She’s a pawn, in that she gets her hands dirty, while allowing smarter people to keep their hands clean. She almost seemed to comprehend her position here, but didn’t quite make the leap to realising that they find her just as repellent as we do.

  21. splen says

    She’s a pawn, in that she gets her hands dirty, while allowing smarter people to keep their hands clean.

    If she’s a pawn, then she’s being manipulated into a position as part of some larger plan. Just looking though her tweets it doesn’t look like that. She’s just really stupid and obsessed.

  22. says

    splen:

    If she’s a pawn, then she’s being manipulated into a position as part of some larger plan.

    I agree that the metaphor has its limits. There isn’t some secret chess-master, deftly manipulating her into doing his bidding. There are, however, people who want their enemies to be harassed, but at the same time, want to retain a veneer of civility.

  23. PatrickG says

    Shh, Steersman might hear you.

  24. StevoR : Free West Papua, free Tibet, let the Chagossians return! says

    So now, according to Edie, I guess I’m gonna get it.

    Because, of course, you weren’t getting all sorts of harassing horribleness before eh? /sarc
