My Temporary Pseudonym – A Little Deception Went a Long Way

For those of you following comments of on the “Bob Tisdale gets into a spot of hot water” thread at HotWhopper (archived link to most recent version), I have an announcement. I am (was) That is, I’ve been using as a temporary pseudonym.  My apologies to those here who think it was underhanded, but as you can see, I was able to comment at HotWhopper for quite some time before Miriam O’Brien finally pulled the plug.   It was fun while it lasted, but, to tell the truth, it was extremely awkward commenting back and forth with myself (examples here).

Rest assured that was my last time using a pseudonym.  I would much rather blog as me, but there are places where I am not welcome.  I just wanted to try it.

Cheers and enjoy your holiday.

    Sorry to see you’ve cut me off, Sou. I was so enjoying our little exchanges. But it’s time to tell the truth, as I always do. Captain Flashheart was very observant. is, in fact, me, Bob Tisdale. Odd that you and Joe thought I was contradicting myself, when, in reality, I wasn’t.

    Y’all have a nice day.

    Banging your head against a brick wall there, Bob.

    I suspect that if you quoted Mann, Trenberth or any other climate McScientist word for word Miriam and her acolytes would trash it purely by reflex.

    They live in a little world of their own that has no connection with reality whatsoever.

    There’s none so blind…

  4. Happy Thanksgiving, Bob.
    Thank you very much for sharing your excellent work.
