Hypocrite, Thy Name Is Douche

DouchebloggerTM Richard Silverstein is fuming over a fake Twitter account impersonating him.

http://www.richardsilverstein.com/tikun_olam/2011/10/27/pro-israel-social-networking-activists-hack-tikun-olam-twitter-account/

The next thing I knew, there was a Twitter troll account @richard (one letter removed from my actual account nickname) which had stolen my image. The impersonator had actually wasted his time by following 96 other Twitter accounts including those of individuals who reported what he’d done. The fake account linked to another of the champions of right-wing Israel, Israellycool. This is the guy who permitted a commenter at his site to publish my home address and my wife’s work and phone numbers. You get an idea of the sleaze of which these people are capable.

As soon as the fake account was created it appeared to disappear. I’m guessing that either Israellycool was worried that his association with the account might jeopardize his own Twitter account, or there may be someone on the other side with half a conscience who told the idiot to cease and desist (this possibility is unlikely).

Regarding Douchie’s indignation that I allowed a commenter to publish his details, this is not correct. I allowed the commenter to post a link to his details, which Douchie himself had posted on the web. Subtle but significant difference.

But more than that, Douchie does not see it fit to mention to his commenters the fact that the very post to which this comment was published was dedicated to this tweet of his:

Did I mention that Douchie exposes the identity (or at least claims it is the identity) of another anonymous blogger in the same post he whines about my supposed indiscretion?

I know what you are thinking. What a douche.
