Weird people

The past few days, I, along with most of the other people on the top of the watched blogs list, have been attacked. This has happened through at least one blog, but even more in comments an individual has left on numerous blogs.

There is evidence that this is a planned attack by a person, possibly two, who are known on this site under a different name. It has the appearance of a sick vendetta.

After this person spammed a malicious attack on me on multiple blogs yesterday, and made several hostile, venomous comments on my blog, I have decided to curtail my activities on this site.

I have closed my blog to comments except for those people included in my Friends Network. I have always kept my Network very small, feeling that the networks having thousands of people in them made the idea of "friends" a bit trite. Now, however, it allows me to screen access to my blog.

As we all know, banning someone from your blog only works if the person has a single profile. We also know that setting up a standard member profile takes less than half an hour, so banning an obsessive, hostile standard member is an exercise in futility. They're only gone for a very short while.

I've discovered that trying to send out a lot of network invites is a major pain in the ass. Over time, I will try to send invites to the legitimate people here. I've been going through my visitors list trying to do this.

If you care about leaving comments on my blog, please send me a network invite, and I'll include you.

The major thing that bothers me about this approach is that it excludes new people coming into this space, especially standard members. But I guess the fucktards who have targeted me are getting what they want. Hopefully after I slide off the front page they'll leave me alone.

Hugs to all the people who defended me. You folks are the best.

I think that is the best idea I have heard of yet Kelli, but, you always do have good ideas.

It sucks that such an asshat has made you reduce your blog to this, but hopefully this will prove my point:

Kelli is NOT arrogant! X:

Kelli is NOT an attention whore! x:

Kelli is not a bitch!(but she sure is good at being bad!)

I am glad to be one of your friends. No need to thank me hon, that is what friends are for you know. To help in a time of need.

Respect!

Thanks Kelli for the invite. And for the last few posts, I am 100 percent with you. I had my own attack just recently, and has left me a little weak.

Count me in your camp and if you need a weapon (although knowing your sharp tongue I doubt that greatly) feel free to use me as I am blogless and therefore immune from attack!

So, I did a little searching, and traced my way back to the source of the problem, via GlimmerMan.

Suddenly, a lot of comments that were being made in a number of the places I frequent make so much more sense.

I'm not an unbiased witness, because the comments that were made were directed at a number of people that I have come to like, and enjoy reading, but I have come to the following conclusions.

I've only been around here for not quite four months, but I do not ever recall before seeing such unprovoked, unfounded viciousness. The claims made by the blogger (and her supporter) are totally without merit. I find it curious that both of them are brand new, without photos, and yet they speak as though they are quite familiar with all of the parties that they tarnish with the same brush. I'm not really good at making this kind of identification, but I really couldn't detect any difference in the "voice" of the supporter from the one who made the original criticisms (such a misuse of that word--criticism, to me, implies some kind of constructive intent--I saw no such intent, merely a hostile attack directed at a number of individuals consisting of nothing more than baseless insults).

I'm floundering here a little... the original attack was leveled against someone who's name I am not familiar with-- I'm sure that I've never visited her blog, nor do I remember her leaving comments at the places I frequent (although maybe when I see a picture, the puzzle piece will fit in). And Digdug, in his Digdugish way, landed on the attacker with hobnailed boots. An overreaction, but consistent with what I've seen from him, even when I agree with the cause he represents.

The attacker then shreds him, and a large number of others with what amounts to a machine gun, firing insdiscriminately at almost everyone within range.

Clearly, says I, from a perch out of range of the bullets, this is an individual with an agenda. The agenda makes no sense to me, but then neither do the "criticisms" made against so many. The attacker suddenly has an anonymous supporter (out of nowhere, and with no connections or apparent familiarity with the blogs he discusses), who does nothing more than echo the baseless attacks already made.

These individuals (and I really don't believe that there is more than one writer behind both profiles, and that in and of itself strikes me as being strangely familiar, but then I think I'm the only one with the belief that certain events gone by were all the work of one hand) have been pointlessly cruel. Their arguments, while without any merit whatsoever, have only caused pain and anger--clearly the intent (for no apparent reason, except to disrupt).

I chose not to respond on the blog of the attacker. To do so would give them a form a validation they do not deserve. This individual deserves to be ignored, if possible.

A bit of irony... does anyone here know the original definition of Coventry? It's where this individual, in however many disguises he chooses to wear, should be consigned.

I apoligize for going on at such length. I started out puzzled, and having pieced the puzzle together, I am highly offended.


rm_kelli4u2dew replies on 7/20/2006 11:10 pm:
A very good analysis. You put together most of what several people have figured out.

The original attacks started with the "supporter" on digdug's blog July 4th. I think dug has banned him, but waiting on confirmation. If you look at the "supporter" comment history, it definitely shows an agenda. If you follow the blogger's comment history, her comments to some people (Sinn on her blog after her comment on Glimmer's) are way over the top hostile, as if there is a history there.

And I also think it's one person.

I have made a suggestion to luvpump that the list be ranked by number of views instead of comments. I believe that would show true readership, and put this "comment whore" crap to bed forever. I also don't think it would change the list very much.

Thanks, hon. {=}

Kel, this is so sad.
I really dont care about the bitch with the agenda, wants a scrap can pop over to mine anytime.
What I DO care about is the fact that both you and a couple of other friends have felt fit to withdraw and, as you say, the attacker gets his/her way.
What makes it so much sadder is the fact that new people here cannot comment, you will not know them and they will not have the pleasure of the full strength of your humour and character. They and you will be poorer for not experiencing that.
I am desperately trying to find the posts in question and no doubt will see them all but, its academic.
Please, please dont let this person spoil what we all have here, that is open discussion on our blogs for everyone.
I too, have started hitting the 'popular male' blogs but all that is is an indication that a number of people like reading what you write. The friendships and affection that comes from those people is the important aspect and both you and thecliticals are far too beautiful as people to be forced into hiding.
Being in that lists will get more people looking and more people will be enriched because of it. Thats a benefit for them as well as you.
The purpose of blogging here is to comment and be commented on, so the whole world of blog is 'whoring' unashamedly and good for them, they are upholding traditions here.
Its an honour to be able to post through the friends network but there is a deep regret that many who consider your blog as a focal point will miss out through shyness or other reasons.

Kel, come back you are far too important to be silenced by a fool.

I have found so many good bloggers by following the link when they left comments on my posts. That is something I'll miss by doing things this way. But I've seen others chased off this site by obsessive psychos who just wouldn't give up. I'll continue to write and post, and expand my friends list, and hope that some measure of civility returns to this community.

It seems to be. What just blows me away is the amount of jealousy pointed at those on "the list". Do these people act the same way toward coworkers who get promoted? Friends who get engaged?

I don't remember pointing a gun at anyone's head to make them comment on my blog ... The first post I ever did here, I was shocked that anyone read it.

Keli, I am sorry that you had to take this measure, but I understand totally. I am new to the site and yet you have the generosity to include me in your network. I am honored. I have not spent enough time to see the trends and patterns that the veteran blogers do. It is a shame that there are people like that.

I do want to take this opportunity to let you know that blogers like you and others have been an eye opening experience for me. I came here with a certain preconceived notion about this site and found something totally different. It has helped me grow as a person and see people in a different light. thanks

Thanks for the invite Kelli, It IS a shame that it as to come to this, we all want new people to visit our blogs, and we all want them to commnt to make them feel welcome and not feel like outsiders. That is the one group this action will affect the most. But unfortunately, I understand why it had to be done. I have been involved with internet chat/message boards on several different sites forthe last 6+ years, and unfortunately each and every one are filled with these pathetic morons that feel they have to verbally attack someone simply because they feel there are no ramifications on the internet. My question to the violators would be how do you act in the "real" world, and is it a reflection of how you act here? My assumption would be no, because in the real world someone would have already kicked their ass.

Blog on Kel, I will continue to read..

Well, Mr. IKnowItAllBecauseImSoSuperior has deleted his profile. It's too bad that trolls have more lives than a cat. If he had any integrity at all ~what did I say? ~, he'd have stuck around to fight. Wonder who the next victim for his new profile will be?

As for Ms. PMS who started the whole thing, she has posted that she's real as can be and not a cover for an old blogger with an axe to grind. That's her story, and she's stickin' to it.

Whatever. The amount of hostility she has shown in her posts, responses, and comments on others' blogs, pretty much guarantee she won't manage either of the things most people are here for. She won't build a readership, and she won't get laid unless she chases some poor sod down, beats him into unconsciousness, and him before he wakes up.
