Some enemies I’m proud to make. Steve Bronfman is one of them. Out of the blue, he wrote to me complaining that he’d been ejected from Helena Cobban’s comment threads. I thought: “Ferchrissakes, what does he want from me? Helena is a QUAKER for godsakes. If you get banned from her blog you must be a real twit.”
I mistakenly exchanged a few e mails with Steve until I discovered that he was a prolific pro-Israel hasbarist with far too much time on his hands. And now I’ve made his enemies list, I’m proud to say. In addition, Steve has made the unmannerly decision to post my private e mails to him without asking my permission to do so. Needless to say, if I’d known he was a blogger I wouldn’t have given him the time of day. Thank God, Comcast has a decent spam filter which will send his future e mails where they belong.
The thing that really tickles me about Steve’s blogroll is that I’m right up there with Helena as the baddies. While the good guys are some of the most execrable Jewish racist characters on the web.
I do wonder though why Steve would want to include a link in his blogroll to sites he finds objectionable. Doesn’t he realize he’ll be sending me site traffic (not much, considering how small his audience is)? I just wish someone with some real site traffic would attack me and link me in their blogroll! Actually, I’m kidding. LGF once did that and the mail was especially vicious until the Lizards’ attention span was depleted after about half an hour.
And a note for my “friends” who scour my blog for alleged hypocrisy, I DO sometimes post comments sent to me via e mail without the author’s permission. But I only do so when the e mail is a particularly vicious smear. I don’t view such attacks as deserving the consideration of a request for permission. And I did not attack Bronfman in such fashion.
