Fumento has now made three posts on his blog and a whole pile of comments on other blogs in response to my revealing his use of a sock puppet. He has called me a liar, claimed that I am insane and falsely accused me of using sock puppets myself. What he hasn’t done is deny that Tracy Spenser was his sock puppet. I wonder why not?
This comment from Fumento is pretty funny:
Meanwhile, since I made my first post on Lambert’s Vendetta.com my site has been swamped with vile fake trackbacks for non-existent pornographic URLs. None before that posting; about 40 a day now. Coincidence? I find it unlikely.
It’s, umm, a little paranoid for Fumento to blame me for any spam his blog gets. And his traffic must be really pathetic if 40 hits a day swamps his site. But the funny bit is this:
trackbacks for non-existent pornographic URLs
How does he know they linked to non-existent porn sites? No wonder Fumento sounds so frustrated.
Update: Fumento’s sidekick Jeff “Xrlq” Bishop claims that Fumento has denied being Spencer. Where? Xrlq is keeping that part a secret. He also falsely claims that I haven’t denied the charge that I forged the Tracy Spencer comment. I have denied it (see second sentence of this post), but again, for the record, I did not forge the comment. It was posted by someone with the same IP address as Fumento.
