By the way, Gary Weiss has had an off-wiki protector assigned to him. The guy has started his own blog
just to counter the claims made on Antisocialmedia.net.
It's the kind of blog that attempts to find meaning in what I had for breakfast today. Unfortunately for him but fortunately for the rest of us, Gary's paranoia is rubbing off on the guy. I just read where he's certain I was the former WR member Joey
, and that because we know he's getting too close to the truth, his IP is intermittently blocked from gathering evidence from this site...just enough to annoy him.
Wow, that's astoundingly ridiculous on an almost intergalactic level!
What's even more hilarious is that Gary's own pals (assuming that isn't Gary himself) are now directing people to threads on this board that identify SlimVirgin,
and Slimmy continues to defend him. Now is that fucked up, or what?
It may be that this is some attempt to discredit the Patrick Byrne story as "made up," but all of that information (save the actual incident he described as having taken place at Oxford-Cambridge itself) is verifiable, as is the sequence of events... As for Joey, he was here (in another "incarnation") at least two months
before Wordbomb or Mantanweissland ever showed up on Wikipedia,
much less Wikipedia Review! He made hundreds of posts, only a handful of which had anything to do with Weiss or Overstock whatsoever. He also cared relatively little about Mantanweissland's, Slimmy's, and Jayjg's persistent efforts to directly link Martin Luther with Nazism over the past year, which is the thing that actually brought the Terrible Trio to our attention.
Do they really think any of us care all that
much about Gary Weiss and naked short selling? I sure hope not. Of course, some of us do care about people trying to trash major religious figures on the 10th-most-popular website in the world just to get revenge on some guy nobody ever heard of before. That,
my friends, is why we bash them - because these are the kind of people who would do something like that.
