Husband Gets Wife Fired Over Threat to PZ Myers

Well, I must say that this is a sad story.

I feel sorry for her, but in retrospect, her husband obviously was not to be trusted with her personal laptop and/or work e-mail address. You don't let anyone have access to a work account, ever.

What a coward.

UPDATED: Well, wife Melanie has shown up, and made a whole bunch of rationalizations for her husband's actions, and...well, I feel less sorry for her now. Unbelievable.

Unsurprisingly, there's been some (sometimes heated) discussion on several CrackerGate threads at Greg Laden's blog.

My take on it, at Greg's. (I tend to comment more at Greg's as the lower traffic level seems to mean that each comment actually gets read more. YMMV)

Here's an interesting twist.

It seems Mr. Kroll is not a first time offender with the interweb death threat.

Look what I found!

listen real close you moron, One I doubt you know the secrete troop movements of the United States Navy, and If you do, and wrote about them it is a felony. And Just so you know, my little brother is on one of the ships you wrote about. If anything happens to one of those kids, I’m coming after you. And I’m putting it in writing, I don’t care. God help your fagot communist ass [AJ, what were we just talking about?] if something happens to even one of those brave kids. I know where you work, it can’t be that hard to find someone as ugly as you. What kind of people are you? It is almost unimaginable that an American would seek to harm his own nation, with the bullshit you call writing, that is ment only to provide aid and comfort to the enemy. Well, I guess I’m one of the few people who remember sept 11, 2001. And how meek and mouse like all you socialist, communist, liberal, progressive (whatever name your calling yourselves these days)were back then. Not a peep out of you. You knew that the real America was awake listening, paying attention, and it was far to dangerous for you to be spouting out your anti American reteroic. Well I got news for you buddy, if any of those ships are attacked and sunk, you and your ilk had better think about a move to France, or maybe North Korea. Again I know your slow so I will say it again. You had better pray (opps sorry bad word for you darwinist’s)that nothing happens to even one of those kids on our ships or I will take you out myself, and stand over your body to the police arrive. No jury in this nation would convict me I’m sure. You Bastard.

Yours,

Wow, at least the fool signs his own name.

I'm of two minds about this one. She showed poor judgment by marrying the cretin in the first place. You don't have to believe in karma to know that bad decisions usually end badly.

On the other hand, he's the cretin.

Yeah, Kristine, like I said: on a level, I know... and there's still this bit of me that can't help thinking 'What the *fuck*? Who writes stuff like that? Honestly*?... I mean, who's not also sitting against the back wall of a convenience store, behind the dumpster, sniffing glue?'

But yeah, point taken. I do recognize the vibe, alright.

(*See also: 'Who throws his *shoe*? Honestly!')

Well, I was feeling bad for her...

Until she (might have) showed up at Greg's blog. (There is some doubt as to whether the comment signed by her was written by her or by her husband.)

Assuming it was her, I have much less sympathy. At this precise moment however, I'm leaning towards that comment having been written by Chuck.

...in which case I actually now have more sympathy for her.

For whatever that's worth.

Either way, he's psychotic. I'm becoming concerned for Melanie's safety.

My hunch is that the 'wife's' comment was also penned by Mr. Kroll. There's the same self-conscious tone, spelling and construction errors, lots of sentences beginning with lower-case 'i'.

I agree with breakerslion above. He's a total psycho, but she did marry him.

But, then again, Scott could be right. Taking that a step further, what if there actually ISN'T a Mrs. Kroll, just the psycho trying to damage control?

And to think. . . . all this over a silly cultic ritual. Is it too much to ask if we're, as a society, still stuck in the 14th century?

Maybe I'm just depressed and tarded-out.

Good bit of skepticism going on here.

Kroll is so articulate and witty - a shining star in the area of avant-garde neanderthal anger poetry - I wonder what gems he will publish next - "your an ugly poop head" or perhaps "I hope you gets hit by a truck" or maybe "I'm gonna hit you so hard your teeth will all break". I cannot wait for his next brilliant literary expression piece.
