While looking at the numbers of hits on my site the other day I noticed quite a dramatic increase in visitors and on investigation I discovered that the vast majority were from the Guardian Web Site; as an avid reader of that great newspaper for 40 years I was real chuffed. On closer examination I realized that the comments were full of hostile rants against things that I was quoted as saying on my blog which were printed on the Guardian blog; the problem with it was that I had never written a comment to the Guardian Web Site in my life. The Guardian when contacted apologised and took down the comments; the same thing happened in the Scotsman a couple of months ago. I asked the Guardian and indeed the Scotsman a while ago to tell me who was behind this and they both replied that they do not discuss third party sources. I find it hard to believe that someone can impersonate me and do God knows what damage to me and the newspapers that accommodated them in doing this can wash their hands of it; that is how I see it at the moment but; if anyone reading this thinks or knows otherwise I would be delighted to hear from you.
The numbers of visitors continues to soar and the same thing is happening only they are now coming from various web sites and they are unremittingly hostile and abusive. The method remains the same; web sites which I have argued with for years are now printing lots of bogus comments purporting to come from me and the hostile comments are flowing in; many of them are of a vile nature and I am still in the position of being unable to do anything about it unless someone can advise me differently.
One aspect of all this is that I am very happy to learn that I am such a threat to them that they have gone to all this trouble and not in a very subtle way; unless you believe that these hundreds of hostile comments are spontaneous and not orchestrated which they clearly are. There is an unmistakeable pattern to them; they are anti me; anti Socialist and pro Zionist; I doubt that the mighty Zionist lobby is very concerned about little old me so my money would be on the knuckle dragging cybernats as I said they are not known for their sophistication. I feel quite vindicated; here are these people who have vilified me as an idiot; a clown; a nut case etc. etc. and they are now going to incredible lengths to damage me and doing so using blatant lies; Joe MCArthy will be spinning in his grave; bring on the wee sleekit timorous Gnats this is going to be interesting.
