Fresh out of the CC HQ mailbox:
Obviously, I've removed anything that would identify the writer, but I will tell you all this much:
- The writer's name appeared in only two posts quite some time ago, and
- He was not being denigrated, the CC posts were actually supporting his position.
Despite that, the writer reasonably understands that being involved even tangentially in a blog spat might not come off well and might hurt his career opportunities, so he'd rather not have his name show up at all, and I can appreciate that.
Which brings us, naturally, to one Patrick Ross, he of the so aptly-named blog "Nexus of Assholery", an unreadable bit of retardedness, and whose Myspace page reads:
What's up, everyone? My name is Patrick Ross. I am the self-proclaimed baddest man on the planet. What makes you so bad, you may ask? The answer is simple. I am an asshole, and I am proud of it.
And yet, curiously, Twatrick doesn't think this is going to hurt his employment prospects. Not even a little. In fact, Twatsy thinks it's an absolute screaming hoot when anyone even hints that he might be committing suicide, career-wise, when a Google search on him turns up the aforementioned Myspace page as hit number one. But, alas and alack, none of this appears to concern Twatsy, who soldiers on blissfully in his academic cocoon, insulting everyone who tries to warn him about what kind of utter dumbass he's being, and having no clue as to what's going to happen when boy finally meets world.
It really is going to be an enlightening experience. I only wish I could be there to watch.
