from russia with...nada

Wow. I've noted for some time that Russia was second to the US in hits to my blog. Now they've ceased altogether, incredible. This happened with China back around 2007. Things must be getting bad for free speech there! In Russia, you don't surf the Internets, only secret police do, all day, all night!
 Postscript  03.19.2013: Russia is back, but with far lower traffic than normal.

Wilde Expectations

When it's suggested to me that I should get out more often, I tell them to take the lead.

how to deal with mooks & online trolls in one simple step

As anyone who's put up with these assholes for even a moment knows, mooks & trolls need air to survive just like the rest of us.

The best thing to do is: Never respond to them and their childish baiting & lies. 

If they defame you, if they smear you, find out, document, and wait for later. If they've gone over the legal limits of our proscribed rights in society, the onus will be on them. The best thing to do is to never respond.

Hard, I know, and we all slip at some point. There are times to set the record straight too. But the fact is, these assholes exist in a fringe echo-chamber. Normal people don't listen to or buy into their lies. That's all you need to know in the end. Let them do all the talking, the defamatory scribbling--let them dig their own graves. It's about all they're good at.

Let the fuckers suffocate.
