It’s no surprise that Robin Edgar is in love with his own words. Lots and lots and lots of words. Lots and lots and lots of incredibly, tediously repetitive words. In lots and lots and lots of repetitive posts and comments.
This Wednesday, he’s made four posts on his blog. Whether he’s going for a record, or simply had too much caffeine (or whatever) we can’t be sure. Unfortunately, there’s not much to what he has to say. It’s just more of the same.
The first of these posts is yet another email missive to Reverend Peter Morales, the UUA’s current President. Yet another lengthy, childish whine about how Morales is not paying attention to him. Well, why should he, Mister Edgar? Why should he pay attention to you lodging the same complaints and making the same gripes over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and…
Then three posts about what UU bloggers have to say, all with the same ripped-off catch-phrase: ‘But don’t take my word for it.’
No imagination or ideas. No real news. Just more of the same gripes, complaints, insults and general UU-bashing he’s always done.
In other words … another online temper-tantrum by the Perseveration Avenger.
Mister Edgar, you’re not even amusing anymore. You’re just plain irritating. Then again, you’ll probably be bragging that you’re deliberately irritating, and even believe in some bizarre fashion that such ridiculous behaviour actually advances your ’cause’ – whatever that may be.
So why do we keep track of this man? Because so few people are willing to hold him to account for his actions. Ignore him, and he will simply find an even more outrageous way to get attention. Attempt to engage him, and he will simply dominate the discussion and make it all about him. He needs to be treated like the spoiled brat that he is. And what do you do with a spoiled brat? Tell him forthrightly that his antics and tantrums are unacceptable, and then send him to his room until he learns to behave around civilised people.
We can’t actually confine Robin Edgar, but we can chastise him. We only wish more people had the courage to do so.
