This one could go to The Pit or to GD with a bit of tweaking but I’ll just put it here.
A University of Arizona adjunct psych professor named Deborah Frisch left numerous and perverse comments on the website of conservative blogger Jeff Goldstein (Protein Wisdom- currently down), many concerning his two year old child. She now reports that she lost her job due to complaints written to her boss claiming she made threats to kill and molest his child.
The odd affair is documented here and here and I learned of it at my friend’s blog here. I will say in fairness to the prof that in the comments I read she NEVER actually threatened to kill or molest said child, just that she wouldn’t care if somebody else did (I’d still have fired her, though it’s not certain how voluntary or coerced her resignation was and she’s inconsistent, claiming she lost her job in one paragraph and that she resigned voluntarily in the next).
Interesting moment in the history of snarking and trolling. Thoughts? Comments? Tithes? Offerings? (I can see this moving to G.D. or The Pit or just dying on the vine, but whichever it’s rather interesting.)
