Those who have read me for decade(s) will have read that once upon a time, a boring site of pseudosmartsbots called “RationalWiki” (nope) tried to steal my pageviews. Well, sorry to say that it is happening again with the stalkers. My blog is getting links from a “philosophy” blog that I comment on weeks ago for once or twice or so – the “Philosophy Meta Meta Meta Blog.” I have also had one or two more engagements recently with self-proclaimed philosophers: everybody remember my refutation of David Wallace on probability. And my intervention into the growing controversies in sciences (and philosophies) with Jean-Yves Beziau and others. I almost have never corrected philosophies. Yet these people are too hot for the fire, and they can’t melt it. Instead, they steal it. And they are mudding up old things of me – like my refutations of maths blogs or my positive spin on Lyndon Larouche. Stalkers are as stalkers do!
Everybody who is everybody is knowing that I comment in the blogs as “notedscholar”: my tongue and cheek attack on the evil obsession of prestige in sciences and maths. But somebody is making all kinds of horse hay with my identity and similar identities on posts like this and this.
I am not understand the places I just linkified. People seem crazy, like they are on many drugs heard of and unheard of. But I ask that identities remain everyone’s own. Mine is not yours. Yours is not theirs. Most important of all: theirs is not me.
Who – foretell? – is stealing me? My guesses include this “David Wallace” character, since he is the only philosopher to beef with me. But it is shooting inside the dark, and I do not know how to prove this like I prove so many other things on this blog. Please contact me on my contact page if you are in possession of any notions about this incident (gone wild). I will now go leave a “comment” on the Philosophy Meta Meta Meta Blog to correct the many, many disturbances of record.
Why is whoever stealing me? Like with RationalWiki, I think it is to get my pageviews. You can see on my blog that I have a lot. Other blogs and people do not have these numbers. If there were an infinity – as you know by now that is a false if – I would have it, and they would not.
