"I danced with a man who danced with a girl who danced with the Prince of Wales."

Aarowatch cyber-stalker in neo-Nazi sympathizer hookup shock. Marko Attila Hoare (who else!) has the story.

Marko on SS: 'unabashed sympathiser'.

Link that 'unabashed sympathiser' takes you to: SS saying

I’m not in the normal run of things a great enthusiast for the Serbian Radicals. I’m not exactly an ideological soulmate of the SRS, and the party contains a lot of, shall we say, colourful characters that people worrying about their respectability might like to avoid.

unabashed indeed...

Jesus, if you lot are stalkers, what does that make me?

I always thought I was more of a humorous critic, myself, but then I did catch myself rummaging through Oliver Kamm's bin last week. Boy, that lad can really tank through the gin when he puts his mind to it.

Gosh, how very open minded.

The sad thing is that Marko probably congratulates himself on his rigourous intellectual honesty.

which exists to cyber-stalk David Aaronovich and Nick Cohen

Heh, brilliant. I wonder if Marko has ever come across actual cyber-stalking?

Actually I think that's pretty much the primary function of rigorous intellectual honesty; I'm deeply suspicious of anyone who appears to be exercising it (self included).

What is "actual cyber stalking"? Are we doing it wrong?

It's when you find out the name of Aaro's character in World of Warcraft and start up an account specifically so you can "pwn" him.

Well, there's all shapes and sizes, but at a lower level it'd involve persistent use of anonymous personal comments to distress and disturb people. Obviously there are more serious manifestations. Discussing people's publically-expressed ideas is not, I think, among them.

Aaro doesn't play World of Warcraft - he is an enthusiast for miniature wargames however, and I seem to remember asking him to get an account on a Command & Conquer server so we could take him on.

I will cough to being a "cyber stalker of Aaro and nitpicker of all things 'Decent'" and my only defence is that it's better than being in the Henry Jackson Society.

Don't worry, false alarm:

Who's the Decents' leading chess player?

I'd volunteer to take the Decents on at Call of Duty, knowing full-well I'd smash them to bits.

On the other hand, I wouldn't try them on Grand Theft Auto IV - the main character is Serbian, and, depending on how you play, a mass murderer. That stuff doesn't go down well in Decent circles.
