re: #41 wheat-dogg, raker of forests, master of steam

What sparked that exchange with me and others was my questioning the ethics of doxxing those high school kids on social media. Anymouse’s position was racism must be condemned, the kids were in a public space and aware of being recorded, and doxxing them was therefore appropriate. I argued that they are minors and doxxing them was not appropriate, no matter what bullshit they were pulling. We went round and round for a while, with him basically characterizing anyone who would not dox them as racists, or at least condoning racist behavior. We took offense. He left.

Later, he was spotted relating the entire exchange from his POV on Wonkette, and mischaracterizing what we had said.

Whether his non-LGF life was hard at the time, I can’t say. I had just spent the day dealing with a racism issue on my own staff, and I was really in no mood to hear someone tell me I was being a racist because I wouldn’t want those kids doxxed.

Yeah, I’m still pissed about it. I’m sorry he flounced, because he does have valuable insights and contributions to make here. His “my way or I take to the highway” thing gets old, though.

Oh damn. I didn’t know he had gone on Wonkette and did that. Anyhow imo what you were saying proved exactly correct when the wrong kid was identified and subsequently received threats. It reminded me of the Saudi student in Boston who was wrongfully identified as one of the bombers and Adam Lanza’s brother in Newtown. AM can be an intelligent poster but he definitely has a black and white view and he does distort people’s words.
