It has been a long time since we’ve suffered “commenter issues” here at HA. But it has come to my attention that have a commenter who has increasingly become obsessed with “outing” another commenter—one who choses to remain anonymous.
I am talking about the person who comments as Mark Adams. If you regularly play in the comment threads, you have probably noticed. I didn’t, because Mark’s comments come off to me as so utterly dull and devoid of insight, that I rarely read them. His obsession has led him to email Goldy demanding that he “out” another commenter. Yeah…right. Like that is EVER going to happen. Goldy and I finally discussed our “problem child” on Tuesday.
At the same time, the other day, I got an email from our friends at the Living Liberally that said, simply:
We thought you should see this.
And an email from Mark was forwarded that, in my mind, is indistinguishable from the rant of a crazy person. I present it to you in (nearly) its entirety:
I am a little disappointed that living liberal has not registered with the Secretary of State of Washington.
What the fuck?
I have an ongoing issue with a person who is a troll on Horsesass.org.
Dude…you are essentially admitting to BEING TROLLED. That is a lifestyle choice. You can stop being trolled anytime you want. (Or any time we decide you will stop.)
It is a nearly defunct blog.
Okay…you actually got us there.
There is a weekly meeting of Drinking Liberally that is put on the site every Tuesday by Darryl Holman. Who is the weekly host of Drinking Liberally.
Most of the speakers on Horsesass are anonymous.
Actually, Mark, everyone knows who everyone is. The blog is configured so that only YOU cannot tell the identity of “speakers” on this blog.
Unfortunately they use it as a shield and a sword, particularly Roger Rabbit.
Wait…you are bitching about an anonymous commenter in the COMMENT THREAD of a “nearly defunct blog”?!?
GET! A! FUCKING! LIFE!
Darryl Holman is one of the minions of David Goldman for
Horsesass and he knows who RR is.
I’ve honestly never heard of a David Goldman.
RR states he’s an attorney and is a party hack. He should be on HA as himself.
Nope. His occupation, hobby, sexual and faunal orientation, ear length, or hat size are totally irrelevant to whether or not he uses his real name. You don’t make the rules. This blog is private property…we make the rules.
He has attended drinking liberally and I’m fairly someone there knows who he is.
Yes…I recall a person showing up at DL who introduced him/herself as Roger Rabbit.
At some point I intend to go to see if I can find out…
You are free to stop by. You might find some people there who have met a person introducing him/herself as Roger Rabbit.
…but this evening I suspect based on a post by RR on HA that I would be greeted by a friendly or not so friendly police officer of some type.
Yes I intend to out RR, but I think it’s an open secret as to who he is.
First. Goldy specifically told you to stop trying to “out” RR. You are, of course, free to attempt to out out anyone you want. But you have now lost the privilege of using HA as part of your demented quest.
Before spoiling folks fun some Tuesday in Seattle I just want you all to know I think I have a serious issue.
Yes…we all recognize that you have a serious issue.
I can only say that RR is breaking ethics rules as an attorney and member/official of the Democratic party.
Hogwash. You appear to lack sufficient information to know about which you write.
[Stuff deleted about Mark’s identity]. I think RR and others on the list should [use their real name] least then they might not say things they would not say face to face or if their mum was there.
Except that our policy is that commenters can be anonymous. Your opinion on the matter is irrelevant.
A little help would be appreciated (anyone know who RR is perhaps Mr. Holman)…
Dude…nobody is the least bit interested in helping you to “out” RR, especially people who have nothing whatsoever to do with HA
…and I encourage participation on HA, though you all are in New York.
Wait…you are suggesting that the Living Liberally folks in NYC participate in the HA comment threads?!? (*Snicker*)
So here is the deal Mark. Go away. Your participation is not wanted or welcomed here. You are now blocked from commenting. If you try to circumvent being blocked, we will back-delete any comments that sneak through.
And finally, get some help. Your obsession with rabbits is unnatural. Take some advice from Rudy (substituting “rabbit” for Rudy’s “weasel”):
And for the rest of you. Please have mercy. Don’t taunt someone who cannot comment back. I’ve already done that for you.
Let’s wish Mark a successful post-HA recovery.
