Deb Frisch is being chased out of the blogosphere [updated -- she's been pwned]
Deb Frisch, one of the blogosphere's most infamous members, is being run out of the blogosphere.
Nine blogs up, three blogs closed down. Another blogosphere first?
Update #1: Add one more blog down, and one taken over by...a gerbil?!
Update #2: One of her backup blogs has been activated.
Deb Frisch, of course, is the woman who became quite famous for having threatened the child of conservative blogger Jeff Goldstein. You can read the whole story on FOX News.
I just happened to wander over to her main blog, South(West)Paw at debfrisch.com. It's gone.
According to Technorati, the last posts were on February 23. Five posts are recorded for that day, and based on the information captured by Technorati, Deb Frisch was shocked at the incompetence of Jeff Goldstein's lawyers, and was considering suing the lawyers her own lawyers for incompetence (though that might have been in jest). Essentially, it was classic Frisch -- everyone else is an idiot and she is completely misunderstood.
The only inbound links are from milehighlaw.blogspot.com and perjurefraudlewis.blogspot.com.
Here's the thing -- they are both her blogs.
Now why have three blogs? Especially since the two Blogspot blogs seem to be focused on the same topic as her main blog -- the legal fight with Jeff Goldstein.
First, note that MileHighLaw is gone.
According to Technorati, the last posts went up one day ago. The blog itself seems to have started a mere ten days ago.
So what happened?
To find out, check out the PerjureFraudLewis data captured in Technorati:
The Blogger Team writes: Hello Deborah, We'd like to inform you that we've received a court order prohibiting you from any Internet communications with Mr. Jeffrey Goldstein. Accordingly, we've been forced to comply with the order and therefore had to remove your blog at milehighlaw.blogspot.com. Thank you for your understanding.
How are your clients helped by your harassing me by shutting down my McBlog?
That note was in a post that went up yesterday.
I can only surmise that PerjureFraudLewis was shut down for the same reason.
So it seems that Deb Frisch is going to have a hard time blogging. As long as she is barred from communicating with Jeff Goldstein via the internet, the internet is off limits to her.
But to give her marks for sheer persistence, she's trying. Tracking back, I've discovered the following blogs owned by the same person who owned MileHighLaw, that is, Deb Frisch (under the name nonk9):
Freudian Slap, Decision Science 101, and Canine 101 are currently empty. Robbing Robert Service has one post of poetry, a copy of a poem by Robert Service posted at plagiarist.com.
But McBlog de Moi and DPSI Laboratory are tracking the Goldstein affair, with the standard retinue of posts calling Jeff Goldstein and his legal representation any number of names.
I wonder how long those two blogs are going to stay up.
McBlog de Moi has been shut down.
DPSI Laboratory has been taken over by a gerbil. It's hard to explain. But there is a message to Deb Frisch -- she's been pwned:
A corruption of the word "Owned." This originated in an online game called Warcraft, where a map designer misspelled "owned." When the computer beat a player, it was supposed to say, so-and-so "has been owned."
Instead, it said, so-and-so "has been pwned."
It basically means "to own" or to be dominated by an opponent or situation, especially by some god-like or computer-like force.
Checking the Blogspot profile for Deb Frisch under the pseudonym nonk9, I see that McBlog do Moi and DPSI Laboratory are no longer her blogs. A new one, Heckling allowed, has been added. It has one post related to comedy.
As for the new owner DPSI Laboratory, largenfirm (aka Kirk), he's a regular tracker of things Frisch. How he got the DPSI Laboratory blog is, as yet, unexplained.
Interesting, largenfirm owns another Blogspot blog, niggablogga. It has exactly the same content as DPSI Laboratory -- a gerbil and the taunting "pwned" message to Deb Frisch. Neither Technorati nor Google have any record of blog posts prior to the gerbil post, but the suggestion is that this was another Goldstein-related Frisch blog, also shut down. If so, it seems like largenfirm is starting a collection.
[I'll not comment on what niggablogga is supposed to mean.]
Heckling Allowed has suddenly stopped being about comedy and is now 100% Frisch vs Goldstein. I get a mention (and a rude one at that). I suppose this blog will soon be shutdown, based on what I've seen so far.

thanks for the plug - I now own four of Deb's former blogs, and have plans to acquire more.

First, what the heck did Drezner ever do to her?
Second, if that were even remotely true, don't you think there'd be reporting on it? A basic google search turns up no evidence of this whatsoever.
Third, why would Tufts University open itself to a potential problem like this?
Ms. Debbee with a Pee Aitch Dee is cruising for still more lawsuits, and in this case, the charge of libel really would be "actionable."
Largenfirm, I wish you and your fellow gerbils the best in shutting this harridan down.

You know it, and yet you continue with this constant hounding, poking fun, etc.
It is pathetic.

It appears Deb's legal troubles have deepened enough that she's decided to purge the JG and lawsuit related stuff on Heckling Allowed, shortly after 8am this morning.
Smart choice, albeit 9 months late.

you know she's mentally ill. The system has failed her. She lashes out at those around her. Without treatment, she'll either kill herself, wind up in a gutter sucking rot-gut or injecting meth, or kill someone else.
She lashed out at you, when you were trying to help. "Limp-lobed" is pretty mild, compared to what she's called others.
Remember that when you are winding up your teaching duties for the day, and understand that the only solution for Dear Deb lies in the courts, and the efforts of upstanding citizens to get her off the web, and into an institution, be it an asylum or a prison, where she can get the help she needs.
She's mentally ill, yes, and if there was any other way, we'd try it. She's limited our choices through her actions, and none of her relatives seems willing to step up, and have her committed.
Leaving her alone will just encourage her into ever more outrageous transgressions. Making the system the "boss of her" will give her some real options for treatment.
She called me a pedophile, in a public setting, multiple times, for no other reason than I pointed out logical flaws in her reasoning. I'm neither the first, nor the last, nor the most aggrieved person she's done that to, but I will follow this through until she is committed.

Okay, you tell us, exactly what should be done about her?
Ignore her? That's been tried, and she goes to sites, like this one, and spreads lies and innuendo (e.g., that Matthew Heidt had committed suicide).
Shoot, in some of the posts she's now taken down, she spread insane lies about a professor who had no part in any of the "blog brawls," simply b/c said professor is a member of PajamasMedia.
Nor is this a recent occurrence. She appeared at other blogs years ago (where I first encountered her), making wild accusations about pedophilia, sexual aberrations, etc., often directed at professors whom she disagreed with (but who did not even know her).
Would you, bob, be prepared for someone, a former director of a division of the National Science Foundation perhaps, to be accusing you of sexually molesting family members or engaging in improper sexual contact with co-workers? No? Is that pathetic, too?
