“The Emerson Avenger”: A Tiny, Declining, Fringe Blog?

In Uncategorized on July 17, 2010 at 5:21 am

Robin Edgar used to blog and comment with manic fury, finding even the most bizarre reasons to lash out against Unitarian Universalists for not paying attention to him.  Now, his posts have been reduced to once a week, and focus on selected Google hits among the billions floating around out there (not to mention searched on, Bing, Yahoo, and so on).

We have said before that Robin Edgar has not had anything new to say for a long time.  His whole message could be reduced to Robin Edgar good, UUs bad – UUs won’t listen to Robin Edgar, whose complaints and grievances are always valid, and who’s really a nice guy if those “remarkably foolish Big Fat U*U Clowns aka Ass Clowns” could just look past the humour of his “Emerson Avenger”  persona.  Well, sir, if you’re so good, and UUs are so bad, why don’t you offer anything constructive?  Instead of repeating that Unitarian Universalism is a “tiny, declining, fringe religion,” for example, if you think you are so smart, and if we should be listening to you, why can’t you offer something worth hearing?

Now we see him reduced to reporting on selected Google searches and hits leading to his blog – such a desperate attempt to get attention.  Interesting how he is no longer reporting on the total number of Google (and other) hits he has been getting.  Could it be that Robin Edgar’s so-called satirical alter ego is itself on the decline?  If so, then maybe he needs a new act.  Or just plain retirement.
