Idiotic speculation protected

Lefties are very much inclined to use social media and blogs to share information about themselves, often revealing the most intimate of details. Yet if this publicly available information is referred to Lefties often scream "STALKING!" or some such.

Conservatives, on the other hand, are generally more circumspect in revealing personal information online.

Deprived of volunteered information from their ideological opponents Lefties are forced to delve and speculate in seeking to reveal the information they crave but cannot lay their hands on. This delving and speculation can prove disastrous:
In 2009, [Crikey editor Jonathan] Green withdrew an error-soaked exposé describing [Tim Blair] as “dishonest” and someone who “can’t be trusted”. (A settlement was reached out of court.)
Earlier today Keri James – aka Kedgie, aka the keg – the fiancée of Crikey blogger Jeremy Sear, published a Tweet concerning Tim Blair's personal life, the Tweet having nothing whatsoever to do with the matter being discussed: Jonathan Green's decision to stealthily pull Alene Composta's nonsensical "moose knuckle" article from The Drum, Unleashed.

An interesting thing has since happened: clicking on Kedgie's Tweet produces this:
This person has protected their tweets.
Lefties are indeed slow-learners.

Hang on. So it's relevant that she's Jeremy's live in, since youve mentioned it twice just in the last week, but Tims live in isn't when she defends him? That information is out there on the Internet too.

Come on. They say plenty you could go after, but this is a real stretch. Wouldn't it look better if you took on the actual stupid out there rather than checking the twitter of someone so irrelevant multiple times a day?

Not your best work, Beck.

Keri and Jerry-Me are living in sin? Together??

If there was nothing wrong with what Kedgie tweeted, Anonymous 6:45pm, then why did she then move to protect her tweets?

It's still visible if you know where to look, anyway. Silly girl.

It is bizarre that Kerrie would have protected these tweets. I thought it was common knowledge that Wogblogger is Blair's girlfriend and online promoter?

A lot of very brave "Anons", too ashamed to even use their regular screen names. So what's up with that?

Just being circumspect and conservative. I take it Spot is your real name?

No, but it is my regular screen name. I said nothing about real names - I mentioned "very brave 'Anons', too ashamed to even use their regular screen names".

See, if you read and respond to what I actually wrote, rather than what you would like to pretend I wrote, that would be a lot less confusing all around.
