I’ve been a long time reader of Strumpette. When “she” came on the scene the blog got the required response out me – “wow, who’s this smoking hot PR chick breaking the blogosphere’s balls?”. I know that some of my friends felt the same.
Then our relationship soured. I didn’t like the way she went after people in very personal ways. Calling BL Ochman something I can’t repeat somewhere my Grandmother reads ellicted a laugh but I stopped reading for a while.
Finding out “she” was “they” and “they” were middleaged men didn’t help. I don’t like SL for much the same reason.
When I started this blog I was pretty excited (and a little intimidated) when I got an “Amanda Chapel” comment and have had what could described as a cordial relationship. “She” leaves some comments (that always add to the *ahem* conversation) and sometime I get the odd email from “her”.
There’s been a big discussion over exactly who writes for Strumpette and I think I’ve worked out who one of them is.
It wasn’t easy. I had to read a lot of comments and blog posting both from Strumpette and people I had on my watch list. I compared language, vocab and syntax but in the end an email confirmed my fears.
You have to squint a bit (or click the link) but yes, David Jones is a Strumpette.
