    I literally just don’t understand how anyone can write something like the soon-to-be-deleted above and go “Yes. This is a reasonable thing to do. Clearly, I am putting forth the best argument, and in no way will this look bad for me.”

    I mean, is talking like this one of Jordan’s 12 rules or something? Is this what happens to someone who uncritically follows the hilariously-named ‘intellectual dark web’?

    Sure does hammer home how much we’re on the right side of it.

    In case anyone is wondering about the comment holes above, we had a drive-by by a known troll who last appeared in this thread back in May, leaving hundreds of similar abusive comments. I almost considered just banning them and leaving the comments here as an example, but he escalated, deciding that calling me a woman’s name, black, and “Jewboy” were insults, and then telling me to kill myself and insulting my family, so nope, not even going to be left standing as a bad example.

    It’s freaky. He’s been obsessively reading this blog for months or maybe years, and occasionally his colon fills up and he’s got to empty it publicly.

    One good thing: he reminded me to check the spam trap (he left lots of similar comments that were caught by my filters), and I found a number of posts from the sane commentariat that were hung up there. Fixed. Sorry about that.
