And, in true Conservative tradition, "Comments" are off! hahahahaha
He's not all he cracked himself up to be.
Besides proving himself a WATB with that yammering post, Ruffles did a simple cut-and-paste of the apology from the lawyer's letter. He couldn't be bothered to reformat so the line breaks work and it reads like a normal post. Forced to apologize, he won't do so properly.It's his way of giving Dawg the finger, one assumes, of going down fighting like the valiant martyr hero of his me-me-me imagination. It's the passive-aggressive non-apology apology. It's weaseltude to the max. It is to laugh.
And, in true Conservative tradition, "Comments" are off! hahahahahaActually, in this case, that makes sense. You know his wingnut fans will just engage in more defamation and if Adrian wants that apology to be considered sincere, he doesn't want to be seen hosting that.
Adrian: "a comment appeared..."WTF? Care to tell us who the prick was that wrote the comment? I guess it just appeared on its own. Why doesn't he tell us whether he knew he was lying when he wrote it? I don't think any apology is acceptable without one of the words "lied", "lying" or "liar" somewhere in the text.
Adrian did exactly as he was asked -- reproduce the apology as it was handed to him in the Notice of Libel.Not on my screen, he didn't. The apology proposed in the notice of libel is properly formated. Ruffles' reproduction of it doesn't word-wrap, which significantly reduces legibility. To wit: "On September 1, 2009, a comment appeared on my blogabout “Dr.Dawg”a.k.a. Dr. John Baglow, the publication of which I regret.I have no evidence to support that Dr.Dawg is an admittedsupporter of the Taliban,nor do I personally believe he is a supporter of the Islamistmilitant group in Afghanistan.I retract this comment and have deleted reference to it."I therefore apologize without reservation to Dr. Baglowand his family for any humiliationand embarrassment this comment may have caused them.To express my sincerity, this noticewill remain on my website."Of course, Ruffles can always claim it's Wordpress's fault. Maybe he can sue them for damages.wv: birked
Sorry, Craig, I commented on your first comment, re-read and realized I was wrong and deleted my comment, leaving your followup hanging out there in space. Sorry about that.Besides, it's not just the formatting. Adrian significantly changed the wording to reduce his culpability. See my later blog post.
No need to apologize, CC, but feel free to vanish my reply to your deleted reply. And great catch on the other changes Ruffles made, which slipped by me unnoticed in the late night/early morning fog. Weaseltude on steroids, eh?wv: conid (am beginning to suspect these WVs aren't machine-generated)
Oh God, this is just going to get messier, unless Dr. Dawg decides if he has had his allotted amount of flesh.
