In reading over some old posts, I stumbled across this classic. Back during the very early days of my blog, our beloved Will Schryver paid us a visit in order to "pre-emptively" stave off rumors about his "schizophrenia," or his ever-shifting loyalties. Of course, most people here are surely well-acquainted with Bro. Schryver's nascent film career, his use of multiple sockpuppets, and his bogus "Invented Footnote" accusation against Dan Vogel. But, it turns out that Schryver had it in for Vogel a long time before. In actuality, Schryver had not only been playing tricks on Vogel via the use of sockpuppets, but Schryver had portrayed himself as being a fence-straddling TBM!!!

What you're hiding from your audience is the fact that you emailing him [i.e., Dan Vogel] all sorts of butt-kissing comments as William Schryver, while at the same time you were throwing punches with him under the moniker "Provis." You one email you even said you were an active believer only "at this juncture" in your life, which implied you were a potential fence-straddler or someone who could be dissauaded from TBMism. However the FAIR posts make it perfectly clear this never was the case.
How strange! So: was he really and truly a "fence-straddler"? Or was he being dishonest? It raises the question: Has Will Schryver adopted a more rigid Mopologetics stance, simply because he sees it as being "the path of least resistance"---i.e., that it will be easier for him to get his butt kissed and get recognized as a "top dawg" if marches along in lockstep with the FARMS crowd?
In any case, Kevin Graham's summary of the events continued:
You were schizophrenic to say the least. Brent emailed me and asked me if I knew who Provis was, and I said that Provis emailed me a long email which ended with with name William Schryver. He then told Dan your identity.
Dan then hinted to you that he knew who you were during your Provis exchanges, by alluding to an independent filmmaker or something to that effect. He then said, "if you know what I mean?" To which you responded, "No I don't." You played dumb. You were hoping to keep your cover because the contrast between your William Scryver emails and your Provis FAIR posts was enough to entertain psychologists for weeks. As an apologist I was embarrassed, and felt like apologizing to Brent and Dan for your stupid behavior.
You were left scratching your head wondering how he found out, so the next day you emailed me and asked me to keep your identity a secret. I told you the cat was already out of the bag. You then decided to drop the Provis charade and go with William Schryver, hoping to bury this embarrassing incident in the past.
So stop trying to pretend you were not lying. You knew perfectly well Dan had no idea Provis and William were one in the same, and you wanted to keep it that way.
PS: I had already detailed this sequnce of events here before the forum crashed. Will immediately fled the scene and now he is back again hoping everyone forgot the details. It is also interesting to know he was banned from FAIR as Chotzpah before making the Provis transition.
Nay, let us remember the details on into infinity! An interesting sidenote in all of this: on the thread in question, Will Schryver posted his side of the story, in which he tried to convince everyone that he hadn't actually been lying about his testimony. Apparently, he later regretted what he said, since he deleted his post!
It is small things like this which help to make watching Schryver's Mopologetic career so interesting.
