Much is being made of the complainants’ declaration that they turned to all OLO’s advertisers as a “last resort.”
Does this mean they’ve never heard of the anti discrimination board? A legal body specifically established to address exactly these problems?
I’m sorry to say it, but in claiming “last resort” status, they are, quite frankly, telling porkies.

Larvatus Prodeo writer Kim, alias Mistress Kimbrella, (rhymes with umbrella) has claimed at Club Troppo that I am leading some kind of neo McCarthyist inquisition of all Gregory Storer’s associates, including his cat, in my unrelenting efforts to uncover the names of “zillions” of Pink Mafia (Bill Muehlenberg’s term) who assisted Gregory in his economic boycott of On Line Opinion.
Just what, Mistress Kimbrella screeches, does Dr Wilson intend to do with this list of names when she’s got it?
Well, put everybody on the rack and burn their toes off, clearly. Then wear the cat’s skin on my head with a bloodied pink ribbon holding it’s jaws together.
What’s wrong with the Mistress that she can’t figure that out?
Larvatus Prodeo carries the most savagely gleeful attacks on Graham Young and OLO’s misfortunes that I’ve seen thus far. Does this explain the Mistress’s allegations against one of their supporters?
My word, the blogosphere can be an interesting place.
The question has to be asked: why didn’t those who were distressed by the comments in OLO take action under the anti discrimination legislation?
Why did they choose instead to lobby all OLO advertisers to withdraw their business, an action which would financially cripple the site, and Young?
Now I’m under attack for gay bashing, and only supporting some gays and not others.
Read the essay. Do you really think anyone the slightest bit ambivalent about gays and lesbians could have written that?
My argument with Gregory Storer has nothing to do with his sexuality. It’s to do with the actions he took against OLO.
Now, after the strange communications from his partner, I confess I’m stumped. I don’t know what’s going on here.
I was happy to do what Ken Parish did and apologise for suspecting a group led by Storer that didn’t exist.
Then Michael’s communications seem to suggest something’s not quite right. But I don’t know what.
And the savage glee expressed on some blogs at Graham Young’s misfortune! Wow.
