A reader sent me a note that it appears one of the serial trolls that tries to haunt the blogosphere got booted from yet another web site.
Larry Kurtz, who has long been banned from the SDWC and other web sites for his profanity, misogyny, bigotry and other hate speech apparently managed to pick up another boot from a web site this week, as at the same time he mysteriously disappeared from the ultra-liberal Dakota Free Press, he started leaving love letters to it’s author on twitter:
UPDATE – Yes, he has been blocked.
Kurtz is long known for the hate speech & invective he has been banned from posting here. But, he has traditionally been allowed free reign to post at websites belonging to Cory Heidelberger.
With Heidelberger recently announcing as a candidate for State Senate, it has been noticed that he’s locked down his personal facebook account, rendering it inaccessible to those who aren’t already friends. With this new step of booting someone glorifying drug use, and promoting such gems as plastic making people gay and that cops are all drunken wife abusers, Heidelberger might be trying to lock down potential venues of opposition research and clean up his web presence to remove the darker side of the Internet that he had previously allowed to flourish.
It’s probably a smart move on his part given that Heidelberger is given little chance at defeating long-time state legislator Al Novstrup who he is challenging for the District 3 Senate Seat.
There’s no need for unforced errors caused by others. No matter how much money they’ve given Cory in the past.
