John Gray: Terrorist
Kevin Drum reports that the fraudulent “Dr.” John Gray, that fraud, is harrassing a blogger for pointing out that Gray isn’t a real “Dr.” and is therefore a fraud.
So what we have is Gavin Sheridan saying that Gray has no accredited degrees, which appears to be factually true. He believes this makes Gray a fraud, a vigorous opinion to be sure, but one that he seems entitled to hold under the circumstances. So why is Gray, a best-selling author worth millions of dollars, wasting his time trying to bully a little known blogger into “correcting” his post? Good question.
Gavin has two items up about this, here and here. Perhaps there’s an attorney out in the crowd who can give him some good advice on how best to handle this. This business of threatening bloggers with specious complaints and hoping they can’t fight back is getting a little old. As the warbloggers like to say, appeasement is just an invitation for more.
I expect such weaselly conduct from a weaselly fraud like John Gray–who isn’t a real Ph.D.–but what really annoys me is that I blogged on what a lying fraud Mr. Gray was a whole week before Sheridan and didn’t get so much as a snippy e-mail. What gives?!
Update: I’m more amused than I should be by the fact that the Google ads on the Gray post — which, in strict conformity with the Terms of Service, I do not in any way encourage you to click on by the way — are all for bogus college degrees for “life experience.” I would click on one of them to see if they award a Ph.D. in psychology for life experience — such as publishing a successful book on relationships, for example — but, alas, that, too violates the Terms of Service.
