    For the sake of people who weren't here in 2008, can you please fill us in on who this fine, young upstanding gentleman is?

    I managed to get there through the power of google's site:atheistexperience.blogspot.com function.Just in case people are confused, if you look up his case on clerk-17th-flcourts.org, he hasn't been found guilty of the misdemeanor battery charge just yet. His first hearing is on Thursday.Bloody hell, he looks about as sophisticated as his arguments…

    Wow, Baader-Meinhof effect in action. Martin, I was just digging through your old Yomin postings a couple of days ago to find the right place to show you this story about a guy who successfully sued someone for calling him a pedophile:http://www.ajc.com/news/ga-man-awarded-404-809868.htmlThought it relevant to the Yomin harrassment situation. Ended up not bothering posting it, but since the topic came up…Way to go, Mr. Postelnik!

    Yeah, it sounds like the victim in that situation suffered serious material harm from the libels being spewed against him (losing his job, being essentially run out of town), whereas Yomin's ravings didn't hurt me one bit.So while there was (unfortunately for him) no truth to his ravings that I was a child molesting, drug addicted thief, it looks as if (unfortunately for him) we may all be able to refer to him henceforth with complete truthfulness as "that wife-beating creationist." I love the smell of vindication in the morning.

    I dunno, but I'd find it hard to feel glee given that yet another woman has been the victim of a violent spouse. Maybe some satisfaction that he's been arrested for it…(p.s. no idea who this guy is; wasn't reading the blog in '08 and haven't gone to look it up yet)

  6. says

    Ibis – That was my first thought as well. On reflection though, this guy (like most abusers) has probably been abusing his family for awhile now. In that case, his arrest means that his family is now safe from his predations, which is something to feel happy about.

    Yomin's level of narcissism, coupled with his off-the-chain overreaction to my criticism of his article, tempts me to agree with you, Brandon. This is a guy whose reaction to any perceived insult or indignity is to totally lose his shit. An arrest for domestic violence rarely indicates an out-of-the-ordinary, first-time offense entirely out of character for the offender. It's probably been going on some time. Hopefully he'll get some psychiatric help, as he's the kind of profoundly deluded individual who needs it. Otherwise, the less he finds reality conforming to his delusions, the more likely violent incidents are to occur in future.
