Can Someone Please Save DCP From Himself?

Post by Everybody Wang Chung »

Folks, you just can't make this stuff up.

Is DCP losing his mind? It seems that after DCP's recent mass banning, his wrath has now turned to "voters" on Sic et Non. Anyone who doesn't "vote" the way he wants is now in his cross-hairs. Does he realize how crazy, obsessed and thinned skinned this makes him look?

Regardless, it's a psychologically fascinating look into the mind of a narcissistic megalomaniac. The way DCP obsessively tries to control, manipulate and repress expression on Sic et Non would make Kim Jong-un blush.

Here are just a few of the rants from DCP:

I invite people here to report our little up-and-down-voter troll to the Disqus authorities. It's easy to do. If another people report these bogus accounts, maybe -- I can't guarantee it -- Disqus will shut the poor little fellow down.

Thanks for your expert and involved voice here. Which really irritates our little troll.

Incidentally, I won't be able to keep this pace up for much longer. I have things to do. Anyway, we seem to be posting too fast for our sad little up- and-down-voter. He can't keep up.

I would be happy to block this poor fellow, but I'm not sure that there's a way to do that. If anybody knows of one, I would appreciate learning it.
Of course, if our troll can't vent his frustrations and inadequacies with impotent gestures here, he may take them out on his caregivers. There's that.

DanielPeterson David Knight 3 days ago
As I say, I expect that we're seeing the obsessive behavior of a single sad individual who is affiliated with a particular message board elsewhere.

DanielPeterson Nathan Whilk 4 days ago
I suspect that it's just a single obsessive and sad individual -- not exactly a credit to the message board that he represents here.

DanielPeterson Carl 5 days ago
Our mindless down-voter also opposes building bridges of tolerance.
Does that surprise anybody?

DanielPeterson Laralee Nelson 5 days ago
It seems that three mindless down-voters (thus far) are quite unhappy about the lack of religious bigotry at BYU.
Does anybody find that even remotely surprising?

The biggest up and down voting trolls at Sic et Non are the regulars. Too bad they could not simply switch to the LDS-run World Table. Another recourse is to withdraw from Patheos and let Allen Wyatt run an Interpreter hosted Sic et Non blog with restricted access (for apologetics party members only). That way their writings could be secret and therefore sacred.

Excellent point, Professor Lemmie. This should be Sic et Non's official motto:

IIRC, DCP and Kiwi were both banned from the World Table for a time because of their personal attacks and low ratings.

Every worldview differs from every differing worldview -- yours included.

Look up tautology.

https://www.patheos.com/blogs/danpeters ... 5059359159
This is a fascinating post, psychologically. Being “different” is the same as “something is wrong with you” is a tautology to Peterson, in the same way that “all different worldviews are different” is a tautology. What an insight into the mopologist mindset.

You are right. Kiwi and Lou would never pass the accepted behavior level of the World Table.

I don't believe they were "banned" (that is only something that the Mopologists do, because they cannot win any arguments on a level playing field). Instead, my recollection is that they were placed on a kind of "probation."

In my case, I can seemingly post over at Sic et Non and it looks like, to me, that it is being posted. However, when I sign out and look at the particular thread, it doesn't show up. This agrees with what he was doing prior to my current status. Certain posts would periodically not show up and DP would blame it on patheos, denying responsibility, and then the posts would sometimes magically appear. No one else would claim that the same thing was happening to them, except waterboy Kiwi57.

Gotta hand it to our gaslighting friend in my case.

Has anyone else ever noted the supreme irony of Dr. Peterson commenting on how awful the posters are on this board when he has surrounded himself with even meaner characters? I mean, it is like saying "look at that sewer in your eye" and ignoring the concentrated and extremely toxic septic pit in the Sic et Non eye. All of these people exist for a reason and it is not a battle of angels vs devils.

I think Dr. Peterson had certain keywords or secret combinations of keywords flagged, so that posts would not appear until he had reviewed them.

Didn't know about this current situation however, I believe you are correct. They tend to take their little routine anywhere and everywhere they go. You know like "Gonna take this light around the world, I'm gonna let it shine." Only the light doesn't exist.

Remember the Time LightBox affair? If I am not mistaken, Daniel actually mentioned Scratch during that event. On Time freaking LightBox. In any case, Daniel couldn't shut himself up. I do believe he garnered some sort of admonishment. Whether he left in a huff or was banned, I cannot fully recall.

He consistently makes an ass of himself. But why?

Honestly, I believe he referred to his Malevolent Stalker on Time. Not joking. Maybe Scratch has the time frame? I'm trying to search it up myself. I don't want to spread crap that's untrue.

I don't know why but I think it was this. I could be way off base since I can't even locate a comments section.

ETA I don’t know why, but the link for comments I posted before won’t work from here. Click the arrow next to MsJack’s name below, which takes you to her original post, then click the link to comments. It’s the only way I can get it to link.

Yes, he did refer to his “Malevolent Stalker,” multiple times. Here’s a good one:



Daniel Peterson The_Crimson_King • 9 years ago • edited

And a hearty "welcome back!" to my Malevolent Stalker, who has devoted much of the past half decade (perhaps somewhat more, now) to anonymously but publicly accusing me -- often on a daily basis -- of all manner of ethical violations, etc.. He's obviously not especially interested in the photos, the captions, or the accompanying essay, but he really, really, really likes to try to defame me. So this "discussion" is a natural for him, and very much in his spirit.

As for my alleged adventures with the supposedly clandestine "surveillance arm" of the Church, well, modesty compels me to say that the Stalker has hyped them -- not to mention the nature of the SCMC -- rather significantly beyond their reality: One evening, probably fifteen years ago, at the request of the then-secretary of the SCMC, who had been asked for help by the man's wife and parents, who were friends of his, and with the ready consent of the man himself, I spent about four hours trying to allay the concerns of a troubled member of the Church. That's it. Without the Stalker's hostile spin, the tale isn't very sinister or dramatic, I'm afraid. (I just returned a couple of hours ago from watching the latest "Mission Impossible" movie. Despite the Stalker's claims, I really don't think that the Tom Cruise character is based on me.)

And, as regards my supposed propensity to threaten legal action, it's true that several lawyer friends, aware of the Stalker's anonymous multi-year effort to publicly destroy my reputation, have told me that it has sometimes crossed the line into flat-out libel and have encouraged me to go after him. And I've advised him of this, thinking that it might, perhaps, cool his jets a bit. However, it hasn't. But I'm not a litigious sort, so it's quite unlikely that I'll ever take legal action against him. (I happen to think, quite seriously, that he may be mentally disturbed.)
