We’ve remarked about Robin Edgar’s fixation with Google hits. When he has nothing else to write about, he checks what Google hits he has and reports them as news, even when it’s just a single hit from who-knows-where.
He’s been doing that a considerable amount recently, and one of our readers has speculated as to why…
‘Ever notice how few comments there are on the Emerson Avenger? Like people gloss over his lengthy rants and just shut it off?’
Perhaps that’s why he’s so ‘Goo-goo’ over Google hits. It’s another convenient way of manufacturing attention. ‘See, see, see – all these people looking for bad, bad things about Big Fat U*U injustices, abuses and hypocrisies!’ So when one individual does one search which leads to his site, he feels it’s worth posting about on his blog. Of course, for all he knows, that individual took one look at his site, saw how bitterly it exaggerates and distorts things – and how self-centered his view of the world – and moved on.
Unfortunately, Robin Edgar still has not learned to move on. He hunts incessantly for anything and everything which could be seen as a black mark on Unitarian Universalism. He says he does not hate us as a whole … so why has he never ever said anything positive? Why devote so much time and energy to trying to destroy and discredit an entire religious denomination?
Unitarian Universalism has endured worse attacks for generations. What is tragic is the harm to individuals – not only those who have become targets of his vicious ad-hominem attacks, but Mister Edgar himself, for wasting so much time and energy on such a destructive course, when he could have done something positive and healthy with his passion and skills. All we can do is hope and pray that he turns his life around, with the help and guidance he needs to overcome his obsessions and dysfunctions.
