Deb Frisch Apologizes, Says She's Lost Her Job

She also says she's gotten threats, which is definitely not cool.

In a post called "white flag," she writes:

I wrote some inflammatory comments at a blog by a guy named Jeff Goldstein called protein wisdom that infuriated many bloggers and commenters. Many of these bloggers emailed my boss at the University of Arizona to tell on me.

In hindsight, the things I wrote were over the line of nastiness. I apologize to Mr. Goldstein.

I have resigned from the University of Arizona so there is no need for other enraged people to write to administrators there.

Some blogs have posted comments that I perceive to be physically threatening. I have contacted the FBI and the Pajamas Media staff to determine how to proceed with this aspect of this unbelievable experience.

My intention in this post is to de-escalate the situation. The comments that started this all were nasty, not threatening. But I feel very threatened by the response.

Jeff - I lost my job. You won. Could you call off the troops?

She says she wasn't fired, but resigned, and wasn't even pressured to resign. Not sure why she would resign then, but whatever.

No word on whether she'll be attending anger-management therapy.

Goldstein did turn her into a verb. Nice.

I'm not sure whether it's proper to gloat, but really, she did cross the line pretty badly, and she does need help.

Thanks to "Todd" and Pupster.

Hmmmm... I question the timing.

I wonder if this "resignation" is of the permanent kind, or of the temporary kind, lasting just long enough for the controversy to blow over.

And will this woman be getting any psychiatric help? I guess she wouldn't admit that in a post.

And, damnit, what did Blackfive say that he gets all the Frisch-love? What the hell do I have to do to get a name-check?
