Blog stalking

I'm already feeling sorry for this guy... Famously nasty (and often funnily so) writer-blogger Lee Goldberg has finally noticed a guy called James Kosub. I had a chance to follow Kosub's short career in the blog/e-mail group world when he tried to put up some fiction websites. He was soon kicked out of some e-mail groups attacking people there - and now Lee Goldberg is at him. (And his brother, also a writer and the famous inventor of the word "fucktard".) You'll notice that Kosub removed all his stuff about the brothers Goldberg from his own blog.)

Don't feel sorry for me. Lee and Tod Goldberg have been attacking me for quite a while, so this is nothing new. As for why I ended up removing all the Goldberg material from my blog, I'd suggest you read the entry I wrote on the day I did so. All the traffic the Goldbergs are now pointlessly sending my way can be nothing but good in terms of my exposure.

And as an aside: Tod Goldberg is not the inventor of the word fucktard, though his persistent overuse of the word is certainly some kind of an accomplishment.

Nice to have you here, James!

I tend to follow links back when I notice a larger-than-usual amount of referral traffic, though I can say that I won't do that with entries by the Brothers Goldberg any longer.

Ah, the nobility. Kosub slays yet another dragon. Remarkable how people are always picking on poor Kosub, just because he fantasizes that he's One Godly Man in a sea of iniquity, and if there is not iniquity, then Kosub will fabricate iniquity and attribute it to others. And then will pull a childish prank or several, to futher demonstrate his nobility.

One can only hope he can resist willfully misunderstanding statements here, then lying about them elsewhere, then throwing a tantrum. But, damned glad you're glad to have him here, Juri.

Enough of the comments on this subject here, please. This sure isn't a place to attack people or defend them. I'm sorry I brought the subject up in the first place.

I have no idea who "Todd Mason" is, but he's clearly a troll.

As for bringing up the topic in the first place: yeah, it was probably a bad idea. Better to at least have spoken directly with me in order to find out what was going on, if not with all three parties involved.
