Should I or shouldn't I?

You know that hate blog that follows me? The one that insists I'm on welfare (I'm not) and a drain on the taxpayers (I'm not) and that I'm not really sick (like everyone has heart surgery all the time!) and that I'm the worst mother in the world, even though about 90% of the commenters are childless? That blog. The one that is named after a disgusting food item (perfect for a disgusting human being!). The one that has stalked me for years?

Well, I know who the blogger is. I know where she lives. I know who her Facebook friends are. I know a LOT about her because she thinks she hasn't left a trail on the 'net, but she has. And it's such an easy trail. I mean, you have to be fucking STOOPID to think that someone with 21 years of IT experience isn't going to eventually find you, right? Private registration. Whahaha. What a laugh.

Question is, should I out her or not?

Because I'm just dying to. DYING to. But that is kinda stooping to her level. And I hate to stoop that low because it's down with the dogshit. But she so deserves it. SO MUCH. As is, nobody but the Trainwrecks assholes deserve it more than she does, and they got their comeuppance in spades. I kinda think that she should as well.

You know, create a hate blog, pick on a bunch of people just because you think you can, invite anonymous comments and encourage the haters, and eventually you're gonna be busted. I'm surprised that Dooce or Pioneer Woman hasn't yet outed her, since she "claims" that they have both threatened her and know who she is. Like Dooce isn't litigious and wouldn't go after her for libel? And that PW can't afford an attorney either?

What a moron. Can't wait to see that site disappear. Because if it doesn't, I think our new friend is going to be somewhat amused by what one little outing can do to her. Threats? No way. Promises. Remember Trainwrecks? Remember what happened to those women once they were outed? Uh huh.

So should I? Or shouldn't I?

Thought initially that you were asking if you should cut her, rather than out her. I know, both sound appealing now. :)

I *thought* you might be talking about Violent Acres at first, but that has nothing to do with a nasty food name. Hmmm. I don't follow MommyBloggers closely, so give us another hint, won't you, Margalit?

And, by all friggin means, out her. I hate nasty people that hide behind false names.

Hmmm...are you referring to Poop on Peeps aka Chicken Liver?

I think you should out her. It would end that stupid Poops on Peeps crap.

OK, I found it. I only found one post about you, and numerous posts about Dooce, Pioneer Woman, etc. If you hate the Mommy Bloggers so much, I am confused why you are so angry with her. I get that the post she wrote bothered you, 100%. I thought, by your post, that she was writing about you all the time.

The whole website is stupid, but I don't understand why you have wasted so much of your time on one post. I would think if the other ladies know who she is, and choose to keep it to themselves, there is a reason?

I take it back. Be the better person. It isn't worth all of the effort you have obviously put into it. Just my 2 cents!

Peterson6, it isn't only one post, it's a plethora of posts and you have to read the comment threads to understand the amount of hate that this woman breeds. She's horrible. Not just to me, but to ANYONE she thinks needs to be put down, shamed, embarrassed, and cut to shreds. She's doing so "anonymously", and she allows all her commenters to also be anonymous. She creates a whole neighborhood of haters, and you can't even defend yourself because they are all "unknown."

I'll give you and example. She is constantly calling certain bloggers 'drunks' and making fun of their drinking. Now, I don't drink and I have to admit that I think some of the people she insults might have a bit of a drinking problem. But the thing is, if you follow PoP's own twitter trail, she's drinking as much or more than some of the people she's calling drunks. Hypocrite much? It's THAT behavior that sets me off.

Plus, she is a consumate liar, and she perpetuates lies, claims to know how to parent better than any other mother, says horrible things about people that are unable to fight back, and that is just dead wrong. She has the morals of a cobra, she's not the brightest bulb on the tree, she can't even parse a paragraph without misinterpreting what is presented and then ranting on her misinterpretation. She's a foul (not fowl) human being, a woman that has the blackest of black hearts, an example of the worst kind of person, and probably the kind of mother (if she even is a mother IRL) that is raising a cadre of nasty little twerps just like her. Bullies one and all. Such a delightful way to raise your kids. No wonder she needs to be anonymous.

And no, I DO NOT hate Mommybloggers. I dislike (I try not to hate) a certain subset of the A-listers for their behaviors on their blogs and at one particular convention. Otherwise, I'm totally not a hater at all. Most of my IRL friends are women I first met on the net 20 years ago. Long lasting friendships that were created on parenting boards way back when.

Not that Miss Margalit needs defending, but @ ThePeterson6 she is absolutely right about the plethora of posts directed at her. And, they aren't vague references. These posts about her are all out attacks and her name is used. I would feel the same way Miss Margarlit feels.

I'd do it. Not saying you should but I sure would.

She's in "business" just for the sake of being nasty. That shit needs to be nipped in the bud.

11/3/09 3:10 PM  
Blogger ThePeterson6 said...

Understood! I was just going on what I saw, although NONE of it was nice. I still say that you should be the better person and just ignore the nastiness. It just isn't worth your time, but to each their own. Whatever you choose to do, I will still read, LOL!

The thing is, I don't want to appear hypocritical when this is one of the things I most dislike about the liver. Shudder. Liver. Can you think of anything grosser?

I have to think about it more, but so far, between my DMs on twitter, my email, and the comments here, we're running about even.

If she would back off me, I'd leave her alone. I guess the next more is hers. If she allows more name calling and nastiness directed at me, she's gonna see her name in lights. On twitter, on every bit of social media I can find, and on my blog.

People -- or should I say bloggers -- are so weird. Why does she care so much?

Because hate is just the other side of the coin, right? You can't hate people you don't love.

What a weirdo. I'm sorry she's stalking you.

I'm brand new to your blog, so I've missed a lot of what is going on. Or maybe all of it. My question is what do you mean by "outing" her? Do you mean that the anonymous blog is done by a blogger that we all know under a different blog name? If so, yes! (or at least DM me with the info, but mostly because I'm curious).
I'm sorry that you've had someone harassing you. that's terrible.

Blogger Kris said...

I'm relatively new to your blog as well and I've been spending my insomniac nights reading through your archives. I love your writing, I love reading about your kids (even when they're being not so nice) and about your struggles with your health (which I deal with as well, though not heart related). I'm also delighted to say I think we live in neighboring towns. I never seem to come across local bloggers. They always seem to be in Utah for some reason. This makes me feel giddy. Anywho, I say out the blogger only because I'm curious and intrigued. I've been following along but I don't know the extent of the damage this other person has created. I vote for whatever will cause you the least amount of stress (even though I'm quite intrigued!). The important thing is for you to feel well, whichever you decide.

I say you shouldn't out her. Don't sink to her level.

I have never seen PoP's blog until today and I used Alexa to read posts from her now defunct former blog. The woman comes off as nuts and obsessed. All she ever seems to write about is other bloggers. I think you should just stick to doing what you always do..writing about your life and beliefs. It seems like Dooce has risen above when she seems to be the main subject of PoP's rants. (so bizarre)

Don't do it, Margalit. Or if you really feel you need to, just throw down the gauntlet and expose her IF she continues to harass you.

Just want to remind people of what my comment policy is. Let me repeat it here for those incapable of reading and understanding that I mean what I say:

"I assume that you're an adult, that you know how to behave, and that you will respect the author and the other people who comment here. If you don't, your comments will be deleted. No anonymous comments are allowed. If your comment is rude and you have no link to your identity, your comments will be deleted. Try and contain yourselves to the discussion and the content and not to your desire to insult me."

I haven't had to delete a comment in a long long time. But I just did. And I will again if you can't be civil. I certainly hope that this won't happen again.

Blogger Avitable said...

I didn't call you any names or say anything other than my opinion that maybe the problem is you. A difference of opinion is not disrespect. I'm not anonymous, either - Avitable is my last name and I don't hide behind any fake identity in any way. My comment was pertinent to the discussion, as well.

So why exactly was it deleted?

Blogger Christi Lee said...

Out her, she is evil. It's not fair that she can pick people apart and then hide. She is reckless and let's her followers do the the same. She lies about not deleting comments, she does, and does it often. Out her.

I'm going out on a limb here but I say why bother? To out her or to even read her?

When we blog, we put ourselves out in the public sphere. There are people out there who won't like/approve of what we have to say but part of a public forum like internet blogging is that it's *public* and therefore exposed to people who like or agree with us and people who don't. If you don't want to deal with people like this blogger, keep your blog private. Or don't read her blog.

I guess I see things like this as a natural byproduct of putting oneself out in such a public, widely read and disseminated forum like a blog.

This is the first time I've been here to this blog, and I've read a little bit. It's very interesting. When I read this post, I wondered why you are putting so much energy into this person. It's obvious you have a lot of relevant things to share with your readers. It seems clear that the person to whom you refer is out to get attention. She doesn't have a life. Which is why she's trying to be part of yours. She's gotten into your head, and by you talking about her (evidently she's been doing this for awhile), she's become part of your life, which is probably giving her a good bit of satisfaction. And you're playing her game. Why? Play your own game and ignore her.

Sounds, to me, like a huge waste of energy and she is getting you to contribute to it.
