The Troll R.J. Sterling: Charles Johnson Fanboy Enjoys #TwitterGulag Tricks

Posted on | February 25, 2013 | 6 Comments

For some reason — and “reason” is perhaps not exactly the word to describe the irrational motives of moonbats — a certain Twitter account got up in my face yesterday. The troll seemed to be dogpiling attacks by thin-skinned Charles Johnson after I made a jest:

Notice that I did not include Johnson’s Twitter handle in that Tweet. No need to give him the recognition. But when the Wicked Witch gets annoyed, the flying monkeys attack, and so “Battle Damage” started flinging poo, CC’ing various others (inter alia, Brett Kimberlin fanboy Matt Osborne) to invite them to join an anticipated beatdown that, unfortunately for him, backfired pretty quickly. Then “Battle Damage” started threatening to send people to “Twitter gulag” — using the spam-block to try and get their accounts suspended — and when I called attention to that abuse of Twitter’s terms of service, “Battle Damage” began deleting the threatening Tweets.

A real classy operator, this guy.

Some spectators to this conflict had dealt with “Battle Damage” in the past, and gave me a heads-up to who I was dealing with:

Sources say “Battle Damage” is R.J. Sterling, a lonely middle-aged nerd who works at a restaurant in Pennsylvania.  His thuggish Twitter tactics have been previously described:

This is the evildoer. An Applebees employee, people. Your neighborhood bar and grill is a haven for leftists, people. Leftists who get us thrown into Twitter gulag.
That’s not all: we have a source on this guy. This source told us the following:

But the most useful thing we actually learned, is that RJ is… how should I put this? Not that important, but still connected enough to do damage with TwitterGulag. He’s not like, Shoq’s right-hand woman or anything. But you can definitely tell that RJ idolizes Shoq. . . .
He mostly uses the internet to hit on 21 year-old girls (he’s like 45, btw) by playing the “nice guy” card; and decrying the wickedness of ”the patriarchy”. . . .
RJ is not important because he’s making decisions, or giving orders. He’s important because he relays and amplifies the words of shoq, subculture, lizardoid, etc. to the nerd community. He’s nothing but a lackey– but a lackey who uses whining victimhood to motivate his devoted followers (mostly ignorant young girls) to come to his rescue. . . .
RJ’s preferred (and cowardly) method of trolling is to scan through #tcot, looking for bios he doesn’t like. Then he posts screenshots (without @’ing the person) on his TL, with a whiny tirade about how terrible that person is for not believing in socialism. *snort* THAT is very suspicious as well. RJ knows that he can get in trouble by @’ing random people. A LOT of people have been trolled by one of RJ’s followers and then tracked it back to his TL. When people see that he screenshot their tweets/bio and mocked it to a bunch of people, they naturally tweet @ RJ, and tell him to fuck right off and stop being a little bitch. Then, of course, he blockreports them.
It’s absolutely baiting behavior.

You can read the whole thing

While I cannot vouch for the accuracy of that report — I hadn’t previously paid any attention to this clown — it pretty much fits what you’d expect a Charles Johnson fanboy to be like, eh?

    I pity anyone who tangles with Stevie.

    PS: If you’re on Twitter and not following her, there’s something very wrong with you.

    Being me is never having to say your sorry. And I go through LGF troll monkeys like toilet paper. They live for me.

    Some day we will get past the whole twitter is technology thing. You’d think the adoption of this simple data app by thousands of people who obviously are not going to be giving any TED talks anytime soon would be one clue.

    Yet these same, self-anointed technorati are the ones who use their supposed technical expertise to deride people as luddites, for doing seriously hard work exposing the fraud of AGW “science.”

    And I’m talking about Barack al-Husseini Vissarionovich Obama, here, too.
    These people are the equivalent of geeks in the early eighties who learned to program the VCR to record their soaps.
