Uncommon Descent: Contest Question 7: Foul anonymous Darwinist blogger exposed. Why so foul?
|July 4, 2009||Posted by O'Leary under Intelligent Design|
The guy had successfully hidden his identity for about five years, while posting all kinds of sexually charged abuse to the Internet about many people, including me. But now we know.
But Wendy Sullivan, the Girl on the Right, has officially found out who the mysterious Canadian Cynic is. Here is stuff he has said about me. He is Robert PJ Day. Small business owner. Computer genius. Well-read book nerd. Anti-creationist debater
A Linux genius, apparently. [Foul language warning re his posts and any reports on them. ]
Here is part of what Sullivan said, once she traced him:
Outing bloggers isn’t usually my thing. I don’t see a point to it. But when you repeatedly abuse and demean people because they do not march in lockstep with you, I’m sorry but you deserve it. I am not a cunt, Robert. Nor a douchebag. Neither is Kathy Shaidle, Kate, Connie Fournier, Sandy Crux, Suzanne Fortin or anyone else on the web you don’t like.
I am not above strong language and hyperbole, Robert, but I am not beneath you. You are not special. I do not dispute that you are extremely smart and well-versed in your subjects of choice. But referring to to those you feel superior to as “cunts”, “wankers”, “douchebags”, “assholes” and more doesn’t make you sound brilliant at all. It makes you sound sad and lonely. It also makes you seem very cowardly, because I know you would never call me a cunt to my face. You would never wander into downtown Toronto and meet with half the people you have insulted – on a one-to-one or at a party – and insult them the way you do behind your chosen alias.
Perhaps not. The thing I know from covering the intelligent design controversy is that a number of people like Cynic give themselves the right to pour obscene contempt and abuse at the public. Obviously, those people are frightened of something.
What would your mother say, Robert, if she knew that you referred to a woman older than she probably is as a douchebag? ( I assume that your mother is still with us. If not, I apologize, one orphan to the next. ) Is that how she raised you?
Can you be good without God? I’d never necessarily maintained that, but now I am beginning to wonder.
Apparently, Day proclaimed himself to be “coming out in public” at that venue. But only because bloggers outed him first.
Sullivan tells me his recent posts have featured greatly toned down language. It figures.
Some people have morality. Others rely on avoiding exposure.
Okay, now the Contest Question: Why do so many of Darwinists spout so much filth, hostility, and aimless detraction?
