Game ON.

Posted on | July 16, 2012 | 23 Comments

–by Wombat-socho

Somebody has decided to amuse themselves by posting as Yr. Humble Linkmongler under a false e-mail address to various other blogs, upsetting the bloggers and spreading vileness. Somebody is about to discover that there is no real anonymity on the Internets. Somebody is going to find out, first hand, what the penalties are for identity theft. And after the hammer comes down, when this somebody is exposed in the glare of the spotlight they tried so hard to avoid. I will laugh, and post their picture here, and enjoy their sweet, sweet tears of misery.

    I freely admit to having not the first clue how one sets about punishing on-line identity theft, but I promise to cheer enthusiastically from the sidelines.

    Never ever get on Wombat’s bad side.  It is not a good place to be.

    I look forward to seeing the identity thieving cretin troll creep pay heavily for its fuckery;  maybe it’s the same freak who’s been doing that garbage to me since early spring. Get ’em, Wombat!

    If this is what the trolls are reduced to, they are on hard troll times. This stunt is below high schooler level.

    I would say, “Bring it on!” except it’s already the case.

    Let’s see who gets to have the last say in all this.

    If you are wondering….not really I’m still here as a troll, and a boil on the body blog.

     You’re a minor annoyance, easily swatted…or an ongoing source of amusement. Pick one or both.
