More Evidence of a Downward Spiral

In Uncategorized on November 23, 2014 at 6:38 pm

Robin Edgar has not posted anything in over a month. That alone is not a surprise, as this has happened before. No, what’s significant is that an issue of concern has been gaining attention among Unitarian Universalists, yet he remains completely silent about it.

This is very strange to us, for at the very least, we would expect Mister Edgar to harp on any issue of actual “injustices, abuses and hypocrisy” among UUs, and exploit it for all its worth, desperately trying to link it to his supposed persecution. (This is, in fact, why we are not providing any details; no need to give him opportunities to attempt to hijack more blogs and other online discussions.)

Lately, Mister Edgar has remained fixated on attempts by the UUA to have him cease and desist from further online harassment of a number of its ministers – yet another sign of his unhealthy tendency towards rage-filled obsession. He keeps demanding that the UUA “govern [them]selves accordingly”, while he continues his periodic attacks against anybody and everybody who does not adhere to his continual self-centered demands for attention and validation.

Mister Edgar, if you were truly concerned for justice within Unitarian Universalism, you would have put aside your own demands, and used your talents and energy to help others with no thought of reward or recognition for yourself. But, have you ever done so? Every opportunity to raise awareness regarding some concern or issue, you have to twist it like a pretzel to be about you, even commenting on totally irrelevant blog posts to rant and rave about “Big Fat U*Us”, either generally or by name. And now, in this case, you’re not even bothering to do that. You’ve thus made it clear that your so-called “crusade” is all about you, and nobody else.

Truly sad.

An update: Mister Edgar replied with a comment that he was tweeting about the incident in question. What we found was his reply to a satirical UU tweet on the matter … buried under dozens of tweets he has done. Apparently Twitter is better suited to his more manic tendencies.

Robin Edgar’s Latest Act of Hypocrisy

In Uncategorized on October 17, 2012 at 11:27 am

Seems the intrepid Robin Edgar has to keep outdoing himself.  Not enough to insult people, often for little reason than being a Unitarian Universalist leader, he has to videotape himself making an obscene gesture, post it anywhere and everywhere he can … and then blame UUs for his actions!

Now, he has decided to go after “Internet trolls.”  This man is campaigning against trolling?!  Talk about a fox guarding the hen-house!

Let’s be clear what we’re talking about here, Mister Edgar: “In Internet slang, a troll is someone who posts inflammatory, extraneous, or off-topic messages in an online community, such as a forum, chat room, or blog, with the primary intent of provoking readers into an emotional response or of otherwise disrupting normal on-topic discussion.”  Now, look at your voluminous blog posts, comments on other people’s blogs, comments about what you think of UUs on online articles that have nothing to do with Unitarian Universalism, and on and on and on and on…

If you want to do something about trolling, we have a very simple suggestion: Get off the computer and get into a psychiatrist’s office.  You have been doing this for over a decade, with no positive outcome, and still you troll, and now you express extreme disapproval for other people’s acts which pale in comparison to your own.  We have said it before, and we shall keep saying it until you realize it: You need help, Robin Edgar!
