This site is named for the famous statement of US Congressman Willard Duncan Vandiver from Missouri : "I`m from Missouri -- you'll have to show me."

My biggest motivation for creating my own blogs was to avoid the arbitrary censorship practiced by other blogs and various other Internet forums. Censorship will be avoided in my blogs -- there will be no deletion of comments, no closing of comment threads, no holding up of comments for moderation, and no commenter registration hassles. Comments containing nothing but insults and/or ad hominem attacks are discouraged. My non-response to a particular comment should not be interpreted as agreement, approval, or inability to answer.

More shenanigans from Ed Brayton

This is a follow-up to my post titled STOP IMPERSONATING MY BROTHER. Ed just posted another lie -- "The Real Dave Fafarman Revealed" -- in which he falsely accuses me of impersonating my brother Dave! Dave tried to post a response on Ed's blog, but found that his post was held up for "moderation." So I decided to publish Dave's response below --

Ed Brayton wrote --

One of my friends in the NCSE office emailed Dave and put him in touch with me. Dave confirmed that he did indeed write the first comment under the Typekey username DaveFxxx, but did not write the comment with the Typekey user name Dave Fafarman.

Any combination of you, your friend, and "Dave" are lying. Since you obviously do not believe in the free exchange of ideas (you arbitrarily banned Larry for disagreeing with you), why should anyone trust you?

Notice that the IP addresses for the fake Dave and the two Larry comments are identical - 207.200.116.13.

Larry already explained why the IP addresses are identical, moron -- Larry and I share an AOL proxy with the same IP address.

Now, take a look at the ARIN whois information for that IP address and you'll see that, contrary to Larry's claim, this number is not a dynamic IP address:

What do you mean, "contrary to Larry's claim"? Larry already said that it is not a dynamic IP address.

Notice that Larry is on AOL, while Dave is on SBC. And Larry's IP is not portable, while Dave's IP is. And guess where the email from the real Dave came from? Yep - SBC, not AOL.

The fake Dave is on SBC. The real Dave -- me -- is on AOL.

When he said that his IP address changes every time he dials in, he was lying.

Larry said that his computer's local IP address changes every time he dials in, which is true. However, the IP address of the AOL proxy that he communicates through remains fixed -- and that is the IP address that the rest of the Internet sees.

You should consult someone who knows something about IP addresses.

==================================

For a more complete explanation of Dave's above response, see my following comment --

While some on this board clearly do not have your best interest at heart, Dave does. I think you owe him an apology for your recent antics.

You are full of shit. I have never posted messages using Dave's screen name from AOL, and anyway, email address information is available only to the blogger receiving the message (unless the commenter includes the address in his profile or otherwise agrees to disclosure).

I know Dave's email addresses because I am one of his best friends as I used to be one of yours before you cracked up.

I talked to Dave twice by phone yesterday. I often talk to him daily as I used to with you. If you don't remember, when you grew up we lived two streets away. We have been friends over 50 years until you cracked up a couple of years ago and started claiming that the world was conspiring against you, that you had less than 48 hours to live, and that the Los Angeles Times was published with the aid of supernatural forces.

Larry has made up the last few posts showing me, Voiceinwilderness, and Ed Brayton as author. The one at 5:40am is me. The ones from 9:00 - 9:05 are Larry. It is getting quite sick.

Larry knows who I really am. I am his ex-friend of over 50 years.

It appears that some time back someone impersonated Larry's brother Dave. Dave then made a post to clear that up and Larry did like its contents so he got off on this campaign of phony posts to muddy the water. I would estimate that now at least half of the posts on this board under other names are from Larry Fafarman himself.

As you know, it is not necessary for me to look up anything about you on the Internet. As for "false information that cannot be verified", what that I said is false?

"I have the highest contempt for gossips who spread personal information about other people."

Since you claim that all of this is available on the Internet (falsely) what difference does it make? You should ignore me anyway since, according to you, I was created out of whole cloth by Ed Brayton.

Much of it can't be found on the Internet. Possibly nothing I said could be found on the Internet. Since, despite your claims, you know who I am, you know that I know a great deal more about you.

Actually Larry, I can't be sure that you are the one who posted under several names besides your own above. Since you began this heading with a message purported to be from Dave, which you wrote yourself, and you posted a message on Ed's blog using your brother's name, it became logical to assume that you were responsible for the other impersonations on this blog.

When you further claimed falsely that you had asked Dave about me, I have no choice but to believe that you have lost all touch with the difference between your lies and reality.

I meant to ask; Two years ago you were claiming that you only had 48 hours to live. You were even telling which ligaments and tendons were going to give way in the next few minutes. Perhaps you didn't survive and this Larry Fafarman is someone Ed has invented for our entertainment.

I produced personal information in order to prove that I am who I said I am (which of course you know). You are claiming either that you don't know me or that I am the creation of someone else. Ed Brayton would not, for example, know that your unlisted phone number was 323-293-6029 before it was disconnected because you couldn't pay your bill. You are currently dialing into the network on your mother's phone. I would not supply that number because I don't want anyone bothering her. She has enough trouble with you.

Is that sort of information available on the Internet?

> just go to hell and take Ed Brayton and the fake Dave with you. <

The fake Dave is your creation as you know. Your brother Dave, in contrast, is tired of your blog but he has posted on CW again. He is very upset about your growing insanity.

Your claim that you asked him who I am is also, as you know, a complete lie. I think that you are starting to believe your own lies. You did indeed call Dave a few days ago. All you said was "Drop Dead, Go to Hell, Good Riddance!" It appears that while you are denying that it was him who posted, you are angry at him for doing so. A psychologist would have a field day with that.

Having a different opinion and trying to support it no matter how flimsy your reasons are is one thing. Impersonating other people and then accusing others of doing the same is something quite different. As your brother says, you owe many people apologies. He is naive enough to believe that you might see the light and give them. I know better.

This is really getting bad. You aren't sure whether the fake Dave that you created is real? The real Dave, the one whose posts you are denouncing as fake, seemed real when I talked to him on the phone today.

As for Bill Carter being real, are you claiming that there is no Bill Carter whom you have known for 50 years, or that that person exists but I am not him?

Larry is quite good at jobs that require historical research even if he can't understand what he has found. I am sure that there are a great deal of jobs requiring such a talent and I would certainly recommend him for such.

The problem is that nothing is so simple for Larry that the solution does not involve research. If he had a coconut and a hammer and the library were closed, he could starve to death.

This is the REAL Dave Fafarman, Larry's brother.

I am generally supportive of my brother Larry. I would certainly not -- as the fake Dave (possibly Ed Brayton himself) has done -- post anything critical of Larry on a blog where he could not respond under his real name, i.e., Ed Brayton's blog. Nor would I gossip about any problems or difficulties that Larry might have. What kind of brother would do those things? Ed Brayton, fake Dave, and Bill Carter (the latter two are possibly Ed's inventions) have no credibility -- they are just a bunch of lying scumbags. Also, the folks on Panda's Thumb, who -- like Ed -- brazenly ban and delete commenters just for disagreeing with them, have no credibility either.

I too am now banned on Ed Brayton's blog, and it would do me no good to try to bypass the ban because anything contradicting Ed's story there will be deleted.

The previous post under the name Dave Fafarman is Larry's work again. Dave has not been banned from Ed's blog and, in fact, has posted an additional comment today.

You can't tell the players without a program.

1. Larry Fafarman - This appears to be the real Larry Fafarman. His reality was confirmed when he filed a series of laughable lawsuits several years ago. The mindless repetition and inability to understand replies follows a long established pattern for this character on the net. Some of the posts which appear with black names at the top appear to be spoofs of him but then again it may just be his evil other self.

2. Ed Brayton - Ed is also real. He has posted nearly all of the posts under his name on this site but recently Larry has figured out to post giving Ed's name in blue but the ranting nonsense identifies these as Larry's.

3. The "fake" Dave - The one that Larry identifies as the fake Dave has been proven by Ed to be the real Dave Fafarman. A check of his name on the net gives mostly posts on scientific subjects, many on cold fusion. This poor tortured soul is humiliated by his brother's antics and his posts seem sincere. He seems to foolishly believe that his words might get through Larry's thick skull. Other than that, he seems quite rational.

4. Fake Dave #2 - the first appearance of the name Dave Fafarman was under the topic "Two-timing New Members of Dover School Board" This appears to be neither Dave, nor Larry. The spelling errors may give the eventual clue that discloses his/her identity. It is interesting that Larry barely responded to this post. The one that actually drew his ire was the one from the real Dave.

5. The "Real" Dave - This is the fake one. This has been proven by the scholarship of Ed Brayton. Ed's work was unnecessary. The posts under this name, including the one that he supposedly quotes at the beginning of the topic "More shenanigans from Ed Brayton" have Larry's fingerprints all over them. The post immediately preceding this one is typical.

6. Bill Carter - This guy claims to be a life long friend of Larry, possibly recently estranged. The name is so common that research on the net would be meaningless. He seems to know a lot about Larry but some of it could, as Larry says, be found on the net. Most of it could not but it also could not easily be verified. He might just be inventing some of it while counting on the fact that Larry is unlikely to say anything believable in rebuttal. Like Fake Dave #4, his posts often contain spelling errors but his posts are otherwise better written. The greatest evidence for his existence is Larry's reaction to him.

7. Colin - A person who writes long well thought out and researched treatises in the vain hope that he is not talking to a brick. I have a clue for you, Colin.

8. Anonymous - These posts vary in length, style, and quality of content. There appear to be several different people here.

8. Miscellaneous characters - These fall into two groups; those who agree with Larry and are willing to embrace any support, no matter how crazy, and those who disagree but have not yet realized the futility of further posting to someone who is, as it was previously said, "As dense as a neutron star".

9. VoiceInWilderness - The most important of the characters. I am a person who sees Larry as a rat on a maze and am entertained by the fact that he has named me his worst enemy under the now dropped topic "Stop Messing Up My Blog". While I should have sympathy for such a poor soul, I have none. I see him as a lab animal with a very interesting and as yet undocumented malady.

You stupid moron, there are ways of blocking comments other than by the posting name -- comments can be blocked by: (1) email address, (2) IP address (if fixed), or (3) cookies (files that visited websites deposit on your hard drive). Each of these methods can be defeated, but as my brother pointed out, it's not worth it because any comment that contradicts Ed's story is going to be deleted from Ed's blog anyway.

Any yet he has chosen to do just the opposite. He is continuing to post messages coming from your brother at the real Dave Fafarman's known DSL address. He may be blocking your impersonations which come from a dial-up using your mother's phone (Thanks Bill Carter for that info.), but that is neither here nor there.

People are tiring of you. I am not tiring of you however. One can only pull the wings off of a fly so many times before a new fly must be found.

VOIW said, "While I should have sympathy for such a poor soul, I have none."

VOIW, that is COLD. You have a mean streak. Remember, "There but for the grace of God go I."

Also please review my comments at Dispatches re pseudonyms. Bill thought that perhaps I was blanket-condemning pseudonyms -- not so. They give you a measure of privacy, and there are both valid and dubious reasons to want that. But they're also a temptation to misbehavior. (Of course, they're not nearly as bad as impersonation.)

Larry said, "At any rate, Ed is not going to allow on his blog any posts under the name "Dave Fafarman" that contradict his story."

Actually, he already has. Ed said that "The only person impersonating Dave is Larry." This was not true; you were not even the first. (It occurred to me that this as-yet unknown individual might have been VOIW -- still possible, though after reviewing the thread I kind of doubt it.) But in any event, I posted on Ed's blog in your defense to counter his assertion. If Ed were the monster you claim, he could have deleted that. He did notice it and said he didn't care because it didn't happen on his blog. There's a certain irony there -- if you hadn't gotten yourself evicted from Dispatches and been forced to rely on your own resources, you might have been the beneficiary of Ed's sleuthing expertise instead of the victim.

VOIW said (quoting Larry):

"Comments containing nothing but insults and/or ad hominem attacks are discouraged." (What does "discouraged" mean?)

"You are just a lying piece of shit."

"You stupid moron."

"Ed has proven nothing other than the fact that he is a lying piece of shit. He is also a censoring fascist and a shameless SOB."

"You stupid, feeble-minded birdbrain."

Larry, I'm astonished that you permit yourself these flagrant violations of your own posted policy.

VOIW said, "I have it figured out. Someone is actually impersonating you. By posting under your name with mindless rants, such as are contained on everything recently posted under your name, he succeeds in making you look like a witless lunatic.

"You can defeat him, Larry. Just post something rational."

VOIW is exactly right. Post something rational, for God's sake!

Larry said, "When hell freezes over."

Hmm. Getting Hell to freeze over sounds like a delightful project. While it'd be a mighty tall order for me to do myself, I am very happy to contribute what I can. Here's to Hell freezing over! :-)

Apologize to Ed, Larry. Your own policy demands it. And so do I.

>VOIW, that is COLD. You have a mean streak.<

Haven't I already admitted this?

> It occurred to me that this as-yet unknown individual might have been VOIW <

I only wish I had thought of it. It really has opened up a new dimension of Larry's alleged mind.

Now let's try to figure out who the latest posts are from. The blue titled Bill Carter post is clearly not from the person who originally posted as Bill Carter. The fact that it is the raving of a lunatic would tend to point to Larry, but it does not have the characteristic style of Larry's impersonations.

The possibility of another lunatic impersonator may bring new live to this blog. We must look back and see what other schizos have appeared on this blog for a clue.

The latest post from Dave Fafarman is obviously from the real Dave. He is the one I can feel sorry for in this case. Despite a lifetime of experience he still seems to hold some hope that he can reason with Larry.

Perhaps we will hear from Shemp with a new light on this story.

Personally I think each and every one of you is completely fucking craZy with a capital Z. This is both the best and worst of what the Internet has to offer, m'homies. Some shizzlenit, this shit. Old McDonald had a farm, e-i-e-i-o. BURRRRRRRRRRP! (Ed Brayton, knock that shit off and quit letting one of the Daves comment as you on his blog just to impersonate my former friend Bill Carter, fabricated by "voiceinthewilderness.")

Fuck-in'-YEEEEEEEEE-HAW!

Now it has turned full circle. Someone is impersonating Larry! Perhaps it is one of his other personalities but the style is definitely different. The only thing they have in common is mindless lunacy.

The real Dave seems to want to blame the first Dave poster for this fiasco. I can't buy that. That post was too obvious a fake.

While Larry did react to that post, Larry's impersonations on his own site didn't begin until the real Dave had posted.

The first Bill Carter post appeared about this time. Is there any connection here? I didn't check to see if that appeared before or after Larry bounced off of the moon.

O.K. I confess. I am Voiceinwilderness. Larry and I dreamed this up to bring attention to his blog. Now who is posting as Larry? Come out, come out!

Gee, Larry. I didn't know you had an "O-ring" -- where? Would you please leave it to me when you pass on? Those hubcaps sound pretty cool as well.

Dave obviously erred in asking for you to post something "rational" -- had he asked for something "IRrational" it might have had the desired effect.

I believe there may be a market for your latest material. Perhaps you missed your calling as a mechanical engineer.
