“Dogpile on the Rabbit! Dogpile on the Rabbit!”

(c) Warner Bros.

Walls Of The City addresses the recent kerfluffle of Robert F***** and his blog, The T**** A**** G****.  He is the latest of a number of bloggers incensed that Mr. F***** just received an award from a prestigious Gun Rights organization.  Other blogs have gone on to conclude that this portends the end of gun blogging as we know it.

(By my count five or more blogs posted about him, thus far…)

The reason for the anger has to do with Mr. F*****’s alleged copyright infringement, misrepresentation, lies, exploitation, abuse, negative interaction with others and other miscellaneous literary and personal crimes and torts.

If you wish to view Walls Of The City’s evidence, please adjourn to the above link.

While I philosophically agree with the general reaction of the gun blogging world to this guy’s actions, I do not see it as an end of anything for me.

You see, I blog because it is a way for me to contribute, to reach out educate and inform.  And sometimes atone.  I won’t say I don’t care what others think, but, I AM surprised people stop by.  After one and a half years!

Thanks, again.  You know who you are.  Being a libertarian (small L) I won’t request you not visit Robert F*****’s site.  You are educated enough to make your own choices.  Most of you are smart and principled, though.

  1. I can’t understand how one establishment’s recognition of a writer, plagiarist or not, would affect me & my desire to write about my life in Alaska, my political views, and my firearms. That writer may indeed be a bad person; I don’t know, nor do I much care except insofar as he may have injured on-line friends. I have rarely heard of his blog, and don’t recall that I’ve ever visited the page.

    • I remember visiting it once, over a year ago, and what little I saw appeared to be counter to my beliefs and interests. Shortly thereafter, I say snippets on other blogs deriding it (him).
      Then, he fell off my radar until the recent snippets about winning an award.
      I wasn’t going to blog about it, but then leapt into the fray.

  2. Very interesting indeed. I know I visited that site at least a few times in the past, but was not sufficiently impressed to make it a habit. I don’t use graphics much at my site, and most of them are my own property anyway. We do need to figure out this “copyright” thing a little better in some ways, I think, but integrity and courtesy will pretty much take care of things like this any time.

    Can’t recall ever noticing Robert F. before, but you can be sure I’ll remember… and discount anything I read with his name on it.

  3. I did not touch on the whole “is TTAG killing gunblogging?” thing precisely because I found it so… well… ludicrous. I do this because I enjoy it, and because the hosting fees are cheaper than a shrink. The good news is other folks appear to enjoy my writing as well (or, at least, that is what they tell me to my face;) ), so it is a win-win scenario.

    But will one dude being a jackass change that? Of course not. I am quite disappointed that such people exist and seem to flourish so easily, but hell with him; I will keep on doing what I enjoy.

    Thanks for the link!

FEAR

"I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain." - Bene Gesserit, from Frank Herbert's Dune
