Bilgeman has some insight (as if we didn't know...)

Compare this:
"Having been told once that this is not the place for her sophomoric political rants, Deborah Frisch continues to use this listserv for that purpose. Please ban her from this list or unsubscribe me. If I want to read idiotic opinions about the Middle East I can go to her blog. This is a forum for the discussion of science, not politics. At least, it used to be.
Prof. Daniel Gilbert
Department of Psychology"
With this:
"ephu, danny.

EPHU 2, osama bin graham! you're a harvard man 2, right?

helpful hint 4 po mofo@stick.up.da.butt.punyversity@cambridge.m'ass:
touch base with carstensen, shafir or lee ross."

Which example is the exemplary mode of how an educated person tells a pest to "Fuck Off"?

And she wonders why she didn't make tenure...

Sishter Frischter 'splains:
"Ooh. Danny Gilbert, a pompous, sexist, pudgy but curiously popular psychology prof at the disgusting cesspool of sexism and academentia formerly known as hahvad university,"
Bilgeman has a great point here. In one post the person is polite, spells well and is clear in what he wants to say (as well as deadly), the other is Dr. Deb.

Dr. Deb also gives us a textbook example of defamation (Denny please check me on this). Since I don't know Dr. (?) Gilbert, I (as a reasonable man) might assume him to be "pompous, sexist, pudgy", but I can't be used to prove this case because I know the character of the speaker.

Super Secret message to Dr. Deb: I base my opinion of your character on the fact that we both know you have seen the demand for an apology and yet it does not come. I would gladly retract anything about this if you would provide said apology.

Update: As usual, a commenter at Dr. Deb's make way more sense than the hostess:
Are you REALLY trying to pick a fight with these guys? Do you never want to work in academia again? I guess not.

Maybe I don't need to do this anymore...

Update II: In the comments, Denny explains more about defamation and generally infers "Sinner, don't quit your day job".

She's trying to kiss up to some folks at Radcliffe right now. I just don't think that's going to work out as well as she hopes.

At 7:08 PM, Blogger arcadian said...

What is it with her and "vis-a-vis"? She's used that silly little phrase a dozen times in the last week... I think it popped up 3 times today alone.

At 7:22 PM, Blogger brian said...

She has now used the magic word herself in a comment thread. Its like sublimenal advertising. Or maybe she just came here and didn't realize what I was doing. Either way, drink up and hit the VODKA!

i've not kept up for the last couple of days.

so acuse me of teh crazy®. but doesn't it seem like she's beaten?

i'm just asking.

of course this could just be my typical mid-week pardon during her typical mid-week sober period.

but still.

do we really want to kick someone who is so far down?

i'm not questioning anyone's response to her, really.

i really do understand that she has been deplorable to JG's wife and child and so many others. and i do not for one second excuse that.

i don't know. i guess i just think we've beaten her. and it's not nice to continue kicking someone who's down.

please correct me if i'm wrong.

and i know you will. with intelligence and wit. (and i'm not being sarcastic).

At 7:43 PM, Blogger BrendaK said...

The thing is, you really can't scratch that bubble of unreality she lives in.

In thinking about it, I believe that part of the attraction is looking to see if anything, anything at all, is ever going to get through to her.

Well, that and teh crazee®.

At 7:45 PM, Blogger Bilgeman said...


"i don't know. i guess i just think we've beaten her. and it's not nice to continue kicking someone who's down."

Have we had an apology to the JG's yet?

An apology to Sinner?

An apolody to ANYONE she has wronged?

Nope...just more bullshit and ratchet up teh crazy.

You cannot forgive people who are not seeking forgiveness.


That's the only order that works.


At 7:48 PM, Blogger OttavaRima said...

okay. forget it. the mistake i made was coming to this site before i went to hers to be exposed to the insane craziness of the last 12 hours.

you're all right. she's freaking insane and there is really no being nice to her.

it makes me sad. oh my gosh. why can't she just go get a dog from the shelter and take it for some happy off leash walks around eugene?

i'm just asking.

At 7:50 PM, Blogger OttavaRima said...

bilgeman, you are on it, dude! one step ahead of me.

i still wish we could be nice. but obviously, that's not possible.

At 7:53 PM, Blogger Amatheia said...

I can't even try to read her anymore. With interest from me, her little linguistic games would be simple. When one is just trying to quickly scan for information while making a decision, her games are tedious.

Mental health is such a bitch; nevertheless it's worth her while in getting help.

One of the later comments today:

yay, it's weekly ephu night, sponsored by wtf vodka!

Who else gets a big Hell Yeah! ephu, deb?

Posted by at August 10, 2006 04:24 PM

We need some more WTF vodka!

At 7:56 PM, Blogger BrendaK said...

She's turned off the comments.

Now, that'll take her right back to obscurity in no time at all.

At 8:01 PM, Blogger joeschmo1of3 said...

brendak is right, commenting is off. Watch out, she might be coming over here. teh cray zee in our living room!

At 8:06 PM, Blogger OttavaRima said...

bilgeman, please forgive me for my own craziness, but one can forgive people before they ask for it ... even Jesus said so.

you have made me laugh so many times over the last month, so please don't take anything i've said as a criticism of you.

i could never criticize someone like you who has served in the armed forces and made my freedom possible.

please accept my hearfelt thanks (my dad and my uncles and my grandfathers were all military men.)

I'm not too concerned about the "defamation" here.

"Pompous" is clearly a matter of opinion, and probably fair comment if he's a public figure.

"Pudgy" is also a matter of opinion, and probably is not derogatory unless his reputation was that of the leanest person on Earth. He's not the world's best fat-burning aerobics instructor, is he?

"Sexist" is definitely derogatory, and probably defamatory. But it is also vague, and usually a mere opinion. What does she mean, and why should I trust her? This is a close question in my semi-buzzed mind (I'm on Deb's schedule). But as an attorney, I would merely write a cease and desist letter to her, and advise him not to pursue it further (unless there are some extenuating circumstances that make the allegation more important than it seems now).

The problem with Deb is that she's too lazy to generate information. She slings insults and recklessly applies labels to people, but gives the reader nothing to base an opinion on. Now, if she supplied "facts" that were false, and based an analysis on those facts that led to "sexist," she'd be in a world of hurt.

My CALIFORNIA (not Oregon) wine suggests that this ain't much to get worked up over.


She's alienated her colleagues and peers, she's dug a huge hole for herself in the blogosphere and MSM, and she's convinced that everyone else is wrong, but she is right. She even thinks her comedy coach is wrong about her potential! She's like an *evil* version of Jack on Will & Grace.

Delusional narcissist with more hate than Hitler and Stalin combined.

"... even Jesus said so"

Perhaps, but I'm not Jesus...I'm an asshole.
You got the wrong cross, friend.

"one can forgive people before they ask for it "

That's why HE was Jesus and people pray to Him for salvation.

Thieves like me got taken down and tossed on the dungheap so the
Fuzzus Maximus could recycle the valuable nails.

But that's alright...reasonable people can disagree.

It's all Good.

(He said that too)


At 8:51 PM, Blogger OttavaRima said...

bilgeman, no one like you ever got tossed on the dungheap by Jesus.

Sinner (very apt):You aren't needed, and you never were needed. There's no evidence is going to vanish. You didn't mirror her site. Plenty of people on the web devote themselves to assessing academicians and universities. Google and The Wayback Machine are the would-be employer's friends.

No. This blog is all about you inserting you(meetings, meetings, meetings), not about doing some HR man good 3 years from now or warning off a parent or a donor. That's all a lie, some sanctimonious altruist crap you fed yourself to mask the fact you just wanted to bring attention to yourself by goofing on a madwoman but weren't willing to be honest about it.

At 2:04 AM, Blogger Blizzardlane said...

Ken, I'm really hoping that's just some way-out-there joke I'm not getting. If it's not, it's a big steaming pile of unfair.

At 5:04 AM, Blogger Sinner said...

What's that smell? ohhhh a Fisking!

Sinner (very apt):

I am a Sinner, it is very apt.

You aren't needed, and you never were needed.

Nope, if I didn't exist the net would have invented me.

There's no evidence is going to vanish.

Never part of the mission, in fact I hope that it continues on for quite some time.

You didn't mirror her site.

Again, never part of the plan. The plan was to create a one-stop shopping experience for anyone thinking about hiring the good doctor.

Plenty of people on the web devote themselves to assessing academicians and universities.

And still, Dr. Deb had a job to quit.

Google and The Wayback Machine are the would-be employer's friends.

A straight Google does not provide context, the wayback machine posits that the user knows what to look for

No. This blog is all about you

Someone has not really been reading or their reading comprehension is REALLY POOR

inserting you(meetings, meetings, meetings)

Instead, I should let people wonder why the site in not updated? OK, from now on I will.

not about doing some HR man good 3 years from now or warning off a parent or a donor. That's all a lie, some sanctimonious altruist crap you fed yourself

Keep telling yourself that. Keep reinforcing your views, I don't think that the rest of the folks here would agree, but then again I am a known liar, at least if one can believe you.

to mask the fact you just wanted to bring attention to yourself

Yeah, I'm SO HAPPY this came up. I really needed the attention! To hell with Jeff and the rest, dam the torpedoes man! I need hits! Its all about ME ME ME MEMEMELOOKATMEMEMEMEME! Woohoo!

My goodness, reading comprehension really isn't your strong suit is it?

by goofing on a madwoman but weren't willing to be honest about it.

What have I not been honest about, wanting to goof or your being a madwoman? I think I have been pretty upfront about both, but then again its all about ME isn’t it?

At 6:43 AM, Blogger IllinoisRepublican said...

I emailed Deb about her website. I'll let you know what, if any, response I get. Anyone else notice that her initials, DF, also stand for something else? (Dumb Fk)

No comments? No new monkey dance? Get on the stick Deb. You are going to lose your audience. Don't make me go elsewhere for my entertainment. As it is, people are losing interest. Bring back teh crayzee. That's how you keep your hits up. We come here to watch the monkey fling teh poo, not for insights into your political views or decision science. Speaking of decisions, have you made any good ones? No real need to answer that one, I have seen the answer as it unfolded. Anyway, bring back teh crayzee. And dance you crayzee monkey, dance. Dance like no one is watching. Oh, and get help.
Kind Regards,
Illinois Republican

I bet she just couldn't spare those few bucks to keep her site going.

Maybe she really DID hire a lawyer and she's tapped out. She'll have to practice in the mirror...'Would you like fries with that?'

At 8:08 AM, Blogger OttavaRima said...

"You aren't needed, and you never were needed."

au contraire, ken sergi.

in addition to creating a one stop shop for teh crazy® that will remain even after doctor deb edits it all from her site, sinner has given me my own special support group for my addiction. we're even working on a 12 step plan.

it's not all about sinner. it's all about ME.

At 8:36 AM, Blogger IllinoisRepublican said...

The response from the name caller: No substance, just flinging of teh poo.

ooh - brave enough to use your real name. david, do you ever feel like
pathetic loser, given how obsessed you are with me?

why would you think i'd give a hoot about your advice?

get a life david, if such a thing exists for a pathetic ill repug.
