The other day in Bodrum, I heard for the first time about “shills.” These are people whose profession is to disrupt blogs and Internet discussions in general. One of their techniques is to keep expressing unfashionable opinions on race, to the point where an entire blog becomes tainted, and its writers begin to drop away.
I wonder if “Enoch’s Eyebrow” is one of these? Until I threatened to reveal his IP address, he posted under at least three names. He may still be posting under more than one. He has also taken to Judaising the least relevant topics. See, for example, his comments on my piece about spitting in the street. What this has to do with free speech and the Jews is quite beyond my imagination.
It could be that I’m paranoid – or it could be that our patience is being abused. I don’t know, and I look forward to any comment our regulars may care to make.
Of course, if Mr Eyebrow is honest but overly enthusiastic in his opinions, his best response to my wondering will be to confine himself to discussions where his comments may have some relevance.
