DIFFERENCES? OH YEAH, THOSE DIFFERENCES
The festival of Dreck continues at Random Brainwave:
John Surname writes: Hello idiots!Now why would anyone be worried about these guys tracking IPs. I mean, it's not like Surname was involved in the sock-puppet IP tracking nonsense at Pure Poison, now is it? Oh wait... Anyway, I find Anonymouse to be better all around than Hide My Ass.
If you're visiting from Dreck's you're about to discover that, OMG, he's wrong and and as usual has no idea what he is talking about.
He claims:The original post was posted online in the evening of 1 June and was silentlyThe original post can be found here where Dreck might have found it if he'd actually bothered to do any research. Super slueths might also note that by looking at the Blogotariat feed, you can see it lists two posts, published two days apart that are exactly the same (save for one tasty lawerly difference that Beck and Blair may wish had remained private).
pulled before midnight (AEST). A rewrite of the post eventually reappeared at 5:56 PM (AEST) on 2 June.
Rewrite my arse.
That's right, it's the same post, just resaved as a draft and reposted later as not to clog the page too quickly, just like Chuck said.
Beck PWNED. Do your fucking research next time. What is it with the right and just making up what ever they want to believe?
Oh, and stop using Hide My Ass to try and block your IP. It doesn't work.
The two Random Brainwave posts are not "exactly the same... save for one tasty lawyerly difference". There are insignificant differences like "cool Crusty Demon kids" changing to "Crusty Demon kids".
A more significant change resulted in this:
Poor Tim became a laughing stock when he sent letters threatening legal action to certain bloggers (one of which is teasing about posting the letter on his blog) and allegedly tried to get certain blogs shut down and get access to their logs. Tim was serial. Caught red-handed, he acted like a sook and was immeasurably hurt.Becoming this:

Beck seems the only friend Tim has at the moment as the winged-monkeys desert the sinking ship. Some end up on Beck's comment threads as 'Anonymous' but as we know, most of those are from the guy who calls himself 'J.F. Beck.'Evolving into this:
Tim must be rattled feeling the need to delurk (or at least shed his anonymous tag for a while) over at Beck's. He seems the only friend Tim has at the moment as the winged-monkeys have deserted the sinking ship. Some have ended up on Beck's comment threads as 'Anonymous' but as we know, most of those are from the guy who calls himself 'J.F. Beck.'Surname's assurances notwithstanding, the post was pulled for rewriting: inserting "allegedly" and removing allusions to behind the scenes PP/Grods/RB discussions the main goals.
Surname is also incorrect in assuming I was not aware of the original post archived at Blogotariat: I was already in bed when the original post went online but found out it had been pulled, and is archived at Blogotariat, when I checked my emails early morning on 2 June.
In their defence, the Random Brainwavers have poor difference-spotting skills, here lampooning "Blair's writing", while the link is not to anything written by Blair, but to Blair's commenters.
Finally, whereas comments are much appreciated -- actually, they can be a huge pain in the arse, but that's another story -- there's no need for over the top make-a-fool-out-of-the-idiot-lefties comments: these guys are their own worst enemy and clearly do not know when to stop. Time to put down the spades, boys.
