Clarification: I Did Not Threaten To "Out" Paul

I didn't even know he was "in." His name is posted, after all.

The threat was meant along the lines of the AcePilots post-- to collect blogger's horror stories of Paul's dishonesty, stupidity, incivility, thin-skinnedness, condescension, comment-deleting, insult-spewing, and demeaning bloggers for their smaller traffic levels. (Again, I find this last one particularly delicious -- what "traffic" does Paul himself have? As far as I know he's just an idiot that Kevin Aylward misguidedly elevated to coblogger.)

My threat to make him my "next Greenwald" meant he'd be the next on my list to embarrass. Not to "out." (And note, I didn't out Greenwald either. Greenwald aready was "out." I exposed his embarrassingly vain sock-puppetry and his subsequent lies about it.)


As Kevin Aylward is now apparently on a crusade to convince everyone in the blogosphere I threatened to "out" Paul -- a premise then used to threaten to "out" me -- I thought I would take a moment to clarify this.

What an idiot. This was all pretty obvious. Obviously, a blogger very protective of his own anonymity would not threaten to "out" someone else, for reasons so moronically obvious that I shouldn't have to explain them to anyone... except, it seems, the brain-trust at Wizbang!

I've also been informed by Kevin Aylward that I may have broken federal law by threatening to prominently expose Paul's fairly notorious history of dishonest and petty dealings with other bloggers and commenters.

I'm glad that I no longer have need for such a project, as I sure wouldn't want the feds locking me up for printing idiotic, dishonest statements by Paul from Wizbang!

I hear they send you to Gitmo for that.

At any rate, at some point you have to decide this isn't fun anymore, and so that's pretty much it for me. I quite. I'm outta here. I'm Ghost like Swayze.*


*NOTE: Quitting is a road, not a destination. The road to quitting may be a very long one indeed. But, at some point, in five or six years, I'm pretty sure I'll quit, or at least I hope to God I'll have quit, and you can all blame it on Paul and Kevin Aylward.


End of post deleted. Out of, get this, a genuine intent not to unduly embarrass someone.
