I exchanged email with Scott Lynch yesterday. He assures me that while he does read this blog from time to time, he has never commented upon it, and that his general practice is to comment using his own name. I’ve accepted his assertion, as it appears Phoenician simply picked up Mr. Lynch’s original theme and ran with it a little too enthusiastically in imitation of McRapey.
Mr. Lynch may be guilty of vampire larping, (not that there’s anything wrong with that), but apparently not harassment or serial anklebiting. I have to confess, I am a little disappointed, as I was sort of hoping the explanation of the two “dipshitters” would be a little more exotic, but it looks more like we’re dealing with a blog-standard wannabe here.
