Unmasking Right-Wing Sickos?

The fine folks at Democratic Underground have an intriguing thread going, and I wanted to share it with Legal Schnauzer readers.

The DU folks are combing through the numerous threatening anonymous comments I've received in the weeks and months leading up to my termination at UAB. They are searching for clues that might shine light on who sent these comments--and who contributed to getting me fired.

My wife and I hardly have words to say how much we appreciate this kind of effort. The task is difficult because, as I understand it, Google puts a block on comments to its blogs (I guess as a privacy measure). The company says it will reveal the source of such comments only if it receives a subpoena, forcing it to do so.

Seeing as how I'm almost certainly going to have to file an employment-related lawsuit against UAB (actually the Board of Trustees of the University of Alabama), a subpoena may indeed be in Google's future.

But I certainly welcome efforts like the one going on at Democratic Underground. In order to help the cause, I should point out that I moderate my comments, and the DU folks have only been able to see the nasty stuff I've allowed to be published.

To truly grasp the depravity of the right-wing fear mongers, you need to see the anonymous comments I have not let through. Following is a sampler of such comments divided up by subject:

You are such a little man...such the small person. You offer nothing to the world other than your pitiful rantings. How is your dog?

Your Schnauzer has no bite because he is dead. Why did you roll over and kill your dog? Possible animal cruelty charges to come.

You better sweep yours Schnauzer we know every move you make.

I cannot even begin to say what an idiot you are. Not only have you butchered now the facts of the case, but the law involved as well. I'll just leave it to the fact that you, along with your bloated buddy Mr. Horton, and your co-conspirators (you probably don't even realize who they are) working in Montgomery and Birmingham law firms, are out of your fucking minds. What an idiot.

Wow, those are some remarkable and hateful comments. I notice the poster(s) are too much a coward to show themselves and hide behind the dungpile of anonymity. Truly a sign of low intelligence and lack of critical thinking. What pathetic lives they must lead.

Keep up the fight L.S.

Dear Legal Schnauzer:

Keep up the fight, and never give up. Fight this thing until the very end and seek the truth!

You have our support.

What a bunch of hate-filled, power-tripping freaks.

I hope the du does track them down. A little accountability would be nice.
