So, yesterday was the Great American Blog-Out in support of all the victims of Brett Kimberlin’s legal harassment of his critics, and the extra-legal (and illegal) harassment and threats made by his followers. Specifically, SWATting.
So, Ace put up his post here. Well written, impassioned and sad, because in the comments, Ace revealed that he would not be accepting the Breitbart award, due to concerns over his physical safety. He was unnecessarily hard on himself, as usual, and as usual, most of us tried to buck him up with humor.
And then some commenters lost their fucking minds and started writing these types of comments:
“Pussy. I’d have gone because I ain’t a-skeered of no man.”
Ok, fine. Ignorant as fuck for many reasons, but fine by community standards. And then along came “Jimmah.”
Jimmah decided that he was going to take on all comers, including Ace. He was going to throw down the gauntlet, dare anyone to come and get him. Sue me. SWAT me. Go after my job, because I’m self-employed. You can’t hurt me.
And by the way, here’s my name, address and telephone number.
What a fucking asshole. Here’s why you’re an asshole, Jimmah. You can say all of those things you want to say about Kimberlin. You can even directly threaten Kimberlin. DO IT ON YOUR OWN BLOG, YOU FUCKING PUSSY. You don’t have the right to drag other people into your bullshit. And if you’re such a tough guy, why are you hiding behind Ace’s skirt, Jimmah?
- Because it’s safe. You’ve got Ace to take the hit for you. These people aren’t going after commenters, they’re going after blog proprietors. The legal argument this guy is going to make is that if Ace had the ability, through moderation, banning or implementing a registration system to control or delete offensive posts, and still didn’t do so, that he was effectively condoning and encouraging ASSHOLES LIKE YOU to make threatening comments on his site. It ain’t a good argument, but it was enough to get Aaron Worthing arrested for violating a peace order. FOR COMMENTS ASSHOLES LIKE YOU MADE. Yeah, it’ll get overturned, but one senile judge can cause inconvenience and thousands of dollars in legal bills. Fucking dick.
- Because you’re a fucking NOBODY. You could start your own blog for free on WordPress or Blogspot, but you won’t because nobody will ever see the Internet Tough Guy bullshit you write. And if the wrong person saw it and came after you legally, no one would rally to help you out BECAUSE YOU’RE A FUCKING ASSHOLE.
Perhaps it was inevitable that Ace would eventually have to move to comments registration, but it’s still sad to see the community change. As I was just explaining to my wife, It Ain’t Worth It. How much of a man’s time must be stolen to tilt nipple to some fucking baby who can’t quit squalling? Fuck that. For all of our teasing Ace about being a RINO pussy, he’s given us more freedom to behave like adults, as long as we weren’t abusing anyone, than any other site on the innertubes. This type of community doesn’t exist anywhere. ANYWHERE.
Congratulations, “Jimmah.” You finally found a way to fuck it up for everyone. Hope you take the gas pipe, shitball.
P.S. Fuck you.
