Neal Rauhauser, who seems to have been filing in at @catsrimportant and @x3n0phon, is certainly showing signs of panicking with all the wacky stuff he keeps throwing out. For example, this:
Now, I’m not sure who Xenophon (the Troll) thinks is my flock. If the troll is thinking of the folks who follow me on Twitter and WordPress, it’s true that there are some things that I haven’t shared with you. Here’s what I did for the past 24 hours.
Most of yesterday afternoon was spent working on the layout for a printed circuit board for a prototype microphone preamplifier that I am designing for a client. As you can see by scrolling down on the Home page, I did get a bit of blogging done. Saturday evening, I read a bit, tweeted a bit, did some paperwork related to one of Brett Kimberlin’s frivolous and vexatious lawsuits, and, at 11 pm, I was on Becca Lower‘s Internet talk show with Aaron Walker. And so to bed.
I got up around 6 this morning and did a little blogging as well as preparation for church. I don’t have any pastoral responsibilities at church for now (so, strictly speaking, that isn’t “my flock”), but I did preside at communion. After church, I came home and found @x3n0ph0n’s nonsense in my Interactions on Twitter.
And that’s the last 24 hours, more or less. Yes, I do have a life in the real world off the Internet.
Team Kimberlin is entering a downward spiral. The recently filed lawsuits are poorly drawn attempts to intimidate their perceived enemies. The overreach is mind-boggling. The flailing attempts to find something, anything, with PR traction are a clear sign of fear that the tide has really turned. It has. So a deadbeat dad (who is hiding from arrest warrants) is throwing out all kinds of baseless nonsense, innuendos, and flat-out lies to a group of followers so small that he doesn’t have to take off both shoes to count them.
And he can’t even be sure that they really believe him.
UPDATE—Stacy McCain has something to say about Neal Rauhauser here.
