More crap from sockpuppet trolls - edited and updated

UPDATE April 29,2012 This is a rewrite of a post I made almost two weeks ago.

Back by popular demand:  dissidents4dumbees

I guess I’m not the only person who has missed J Todd DeShong’s great blog, dissidents4dumbees. It is often referred to fondly in the comment threads at Seth Kalichman’s blog, Denying AIDS and other oddities.

A link I never expected - UPDATED

Tim Horn, an Administrator and paid staff member of the AIDSmeds forums, recently gave me a compliment.  I think.  Horn posted a thread at those forums, acknowledging the transition of Emery Taylor, which I reported on a few weeks ago.

As I noted in my last post, I’ve been mucking around with various themes, settings and other changes, trying to figure out why my blog response times were so slow, and why I was experiencing so much downtime. I am now convinced that the real problem was due to my (now former) webhosting service, […more]
