This morning I included some new links on my sidebar. I haven't done that for a very long time.
I realized this morning that all the people I had linked to had already been attacked by our little nutty friend from down under. I think he has been gone for a year and a half now. He did write to all of us in an attempt to make amends, but I didn't believe him at the time. Apparently he really was done because only one of us has heard from him since. (Aren't you the lucky one AnyEdge?)
A link from me used to mean you would be attacked unmercifully. It was unbelievable. Hundreds of the most insane comments you could imagine. He called me a "shape-shifting reptile" among other things. We all were attacked, and anyone we linked to on our blogs were attacked.
He would copy our photos and post them on his blog in the most vile ways.
Obviously I wouldn't have posted a photo of someone I loved.
Should I really trust that things have changed? I guess I am starting to trust that.
And if he comes back, you can blame me.
At the hospital, we have a superstition that you must not ever use the full name of a troublesome patient who is now discharged. Somehow using the full name will call them back to the hospital. And frankly, I don't know how anyone gets assaulted by a patient and comes back the same day to care lovingly for that patient. I could not do it, I know that. That is why I work in an office.
So I hope I have not summoned him by talking about him. God bless him... I hope he got the help he needed and is now happily prospering in the Australian sun.
And I hope you are all prospering happily under the sun wherever that may be. Sober, by the Grace of a loving God.
