You've got to be taught before it's too late

Hate mail, I get hate mail; I get all kinds of lovely hate mail. The best one is from someone who's surfaced in the blogosphere before, to threaten Tim Blair. (Wow, am I really in the same league as he, now?) Gordon (AKA Les Ketchum) begins by sending me several photos of the rally yesterday at its mid-afternoon peak, which I missed: hey dumbshit, This is what a real protest in Ottawa looked like, you fascist asshole... I don't disbelieve it. I never claimed to cover the entire day, or be everywhere at once. That's what the mainstream media, with dozens of vans and cameramen, is for. I'm only one person, and got out of the crowd once it started looking violent. I know you're desperately 'TRYING' to lie about what the protest in Ottawa looks like so that you can comfort your NEOCON friends across blogdom. They don't need comforting. The anti-war movement, such as it is, is pretty laughable to begin with. Stroke all the nazi cock you like, but the truth is the truth. And God... or karma... awaits those who BEAR FALSE WITNESS. You right wingers will lose. And we will stop your hard-on for New World Order or a Pax Americana. I'm a non-ideological agnostic, thanks, and thus not particularly responsive to such accusations. But do know how much I appreciate your concern for my soul; do you perhaps have some explanatory pamphlets on your path to salvation which I might peruse? Plus, I'm calling up some of my friends up there and letting them know WHO YOU ARE, WHERE YOU ARE and what BULLSHIT YOU ARE SAYING. Thanks for including your bio in your blog, dipshit. Now I'm going to have my friends come and 'have a beer with you'. Talk some sense into you. Cuz we sure frown upon seeing nazis, especially in our own yard. So get out of MY TOWN, bitch. You're stinking up my beautiful city and country with your syphilis ridden, right wing, war-loving, upper class ass kissing fat fuck. But, please, enjoy having 'a few beers' with my friends. They'll be over. Soon. We'll call. If you'd read a bit closer, you'd notice that I blog pseudonymously. (That's a big word that means "under a false name," much as I expect you've sent this missive. Tit for tat, eh?) I've been very careful to restrict the personal details I publish, precisely because of this sort of threat. If you or your friends should find me anyway, and assault me for my beliefs, just proves me right in considering the lot of you violent and hateful, doesn't it? Are your arguments so weak that you feel the need to brutally silence those who disagree? by the way, Paul Denton, I recommended to my friends to find a copy of 'Why I Hate Canadians' (is there such a thing, asswipe?) when they'll be DROPPING by. Which you seem love so much. It's by Will Ferguson, noted Canadian humourist, and also the author of Hokkaido Highway Blues, How to Be a Canadian, I Was a Teenage Katima-Victim, and multiple works of Canadian history. I already have a copy, thanks; you, however, would do well to read why he - severely proud of Canada - finds rabidly ignorant rabble-rousers like yourself so irritating. It helps that I have a couple of buds at that very campus. Sweet. Are they Poli-Sci majors, by any chance? Ever actually, literally EATEN a whole book before?! You are what you eat, right?! Right. Have you ever considered that you and your friends being this lucid might be precisely the reason you've become marginalized? I'm lovin' it. You know, between the two of us, I'm the self-proclaimed consumer whore, and I'm not the one spouting McDonald's ad slogans. Welcome to Canada, bitch. We will make you feel very, very, very, very welcome. Welcome? Born at the Ottawa General, grew up in the east end of the Ottawa Valley, living in Centretown, attending U of O. What are your hometown credentials, mmm? Oh, and I posted your blog and e-mail to several thousand INDYMEDIA blogs... since you're SUCH a fan. As Winston Churchill said: "You have enemies? Good! That means you've stood up for something, some time in your life." They were SO pleased with you making fun of them. Excellent. I've always thought they seemed too serious. It's good to hear they're starting to lighten up. By the way, INDYMEDIA was ALL over that protest, bitch. If they were, they seemed to be a few dozen T-shirts short of making it visible. Gordon: Grow up. Feel free to offer a cogent argument for your cause (i.e., one that doesn't call anyone a Nazi, or use strings of ALL CAPS) at any time, however.

Nice - I've always kinda wanted some hatemail, but the closest I ever get is when Robert calls me a "rightwhiner rube" in my comments.

Gordon and his pals are such fools. They lose ground right and left, lose elections here and there, drive even the most sympathetic listeners away with their frothing, and never feel that their ideas should be re-examined.

I suppose it's because they HAVE no ideas. After all, it's hard to be wrong if you have nothing to say.

But Paul, you missed his most famous prediction in his first letter to Tim Blair:
"On Nov. 2, you'll be crying in your cool aid, you brownshirt bastard.

Glad to wipe the smug smirk of hubris off your fat Amerikkkan face.

Much love,

Les Ketchum"
Look who's still smilin' and look who's is crying in his Kool-aid. And he live's in a RED STATE too. Rub it in, rub it in!

Poor bastard can't even spell "Kool-aid" right...

Paul, bask in your glory—you earned it kid! Personally I wouldn't have given him any more time that it took to hit the delete key, much less posting his drivel and feeding his perverse obsession.

BTW what would Canadians think if Americans suddenly became so glaring hostile toward them? Jeez.

Paul, here’s the scoop on Mr. Les "Gordon" Ketchem.

So is the ultimate service provider to the company. An e-mail to ABUSE is most appropriate for this Jackass as is a call to Imap asking for a certain Gordon. I would certainly have "some fun" with this asshole before I royally screwed him. Please check the email header (usually under properties) to verify all this is correct or send it to and I'll do it for you. Death threats (HATE crimes) are NOW taken quite seriously here in the US. The local police (use and the FBI might take an interest in this as well since he has threatened Tim Blair and doubtless others as well.
Motto: Don’t get back. Get even!

Uhh ... Network Solutions may be his Domain Name Service (DNS) provider, but they provide DNS service to millions of domains, and aren't in a position to care one whit what content they host. All they do is manage the resolution of the domain name to the IP address of the host.

Paul, I live in Ottawa too (Near the CHEO)... If you need help, I got your back!

You cc enough Internet authorites and Network Solutions, LLC will be forced to do something else lose their license as a registrar (like Frank Fowlie, Ombudsman for ICANN). They are listed as THE registrar also. Legal action isn't out of the question given the language of the threats and the number of them. Remember he committed assult—the threat to use force against Paul and others too. This is not a trivial matter.

Threat of force is a police matter. They have the resources (and the correct approach) to trace sources, and only they have the legal powers to take appropriate action.

I can't believe I missed that Will Ferguson reference. Terrific guy; used to live in the same apartment building as me. Check out his latest: Beauty Tips from Moose Jaw. As good a Canadian travel book as you're going to find.
