Remember when...

Remember before, when we had no idea who Deborah Frisch was?

Man, I miss those days.

UPDATE: Frisch commented on this post on one of her blogs. However, due to repeated terms of service violations, including direct violations of court orders, it didn't stay up for long.

One of the sites that has followed her actions has a common refrain: "trust teh cycle." For a time, Frisch is silent online. I don't know the cause of the silences because I don't follow her life that closely. But eventually, inevitably, she resurfaces, libels a handful of people (commonly: economists whose discipline is at odds with her Decision Science background; lawyers and judges who have used the rule of law to sanction her behavior; random individuals unfortunate enough to get her thinking aloud about them), replies obscenely to her own posts under the names of those she detests; and raises the volume and temperature until Blogger deletes her comments/posts or revokes her blogs. Eventually she quiets down...but never for long.

The Frisch saga has been rehearsed endlessly elsewhere, and I won't bother to rehash it here. Suffice to say that, in spite of all that her actions have cost her in the past year, she continues to behave as though her actions have no consequences.

I leave it to the reader to decide.

Moving to WordPress

I'm moving Rant, Monkey! to a new host, because, you know, the traffic here is overwhelming. We're moving on up, to the West Side...

I'll keep this one, but won't be updating it. At some point the "" domain will point you to the new location, but I'll keep "new" and "old" links up so you, my teeming legions of readers, will not get lost in the tubes and end up someplace like here.

Blogspot been berry berry good to me. But I run another half dozen sites on wordpress, so I figure if I'm going to have a semi-active blog, I might as well bring it under the big tent.

So...happy new year. check out the new digs here. It's still a bit sparse, but it's functional. Sign up, comment, and if you can't, please let me know.
