The snark goes dark

Tam has hung up the blog. Apparently due to some stalker type. I can understand not wanting to deal with the internet bullshit. Trust me. I’ve almost quit a lot. But, I eventually come back. Any more, for me, blogging is getting tedious to an extent but I still like it. Once I stop liking it, I’m out.

But back to Tam, I’ll miss her blog and I hope she comes back. But I can’t lure her back out with just a Wookiee Suit. It may require Wookiee Sushi*:


* Yeah, yeah. Bento but that doesn’t quite make the pun work.

    Aw Crap! We’ve lost one of our best and brightest! I hope after further reflection she reconsiders, but understand why she wouldn’t.

  2. Bob R. Says:

    That’s really sad, though I did think it was a huge mistake when she started posting more and more of that local stuff, especially the pictures of her excursions around town or places she liked to go. Bad news. But then again, if you can’t post about what you want then what’s the point? Her blog will be missed.

  3. Paul Kisling Says:

    Wow. Someone actually has the crazies for her? It takes all kinds I guess.

  4. Kristophr Says:

    Maybe get a volunteer majordomo?

    Mirror the blog, use Disqus for comments ( and save IP addresses ) and have some non-involved party vet them for her?

    If we can get an IP address, we can figure out who this tard is, and make things miserable.

  5. Matt House Says:

    Hey Rob… thanks for nothing, genius. You’ve just encouraged Tam to drop off FB as wel.

  6. SayUncle Says:

    Sorry Rob. Had to delete your comment. Apparently the dude in question is a reader here.

  7. SPQR Says:

    Wow, that is infuriating. Wish we could solve that for her.

  8. Robert Says:

    Well, Shazbot…

    And the dark side wins again.

  10. Sebastian Says:

    At one point the internet seemed to be a place where you could find interesting and enlightening people. Now it’s nearly completed its metamorphosis into a sewer.

  11. MAJMike Says:

    Wowzers!! Stalking a heavily-armed female pistol expert is not good for the stalker’s health. I sure wouldn’t want to confront either Tam or Bobbie X either separately or together. My body is just fine in its current un-ventilated condition.

    Hope the situation sorts itself out soonest.

  12. Wes S. Says:

    …What moron would pick Tam, of all people, to stalk?

    That sucks; Tam was one of my daily reads. Best of luck to her in dealing with what sounds like a scary situation.

  13. Rob K Says:

    Sorry. Didn’t realize I was saying anything I shouldn’t. I’ll just shut up now…

  14. SayUncle Says:

    Oh, you’re fine. Just Tam thought it could lead to things. I just wanted to explain.

  15. Jon Says:

    Thanks a lot asshole! That blog, and this blog have been on my daily readers for 5 years.

    Tam, I’m sorry you have to deal with creepers like that… Faith in humanity ruined again.

  16. Jon Says:

    By asshole… I’m referring to the stalker.

  17. Kristophr Says:

    I’ve seen some of his spew. He’s hitting other blogs now.

    He’s a classic delusional schizophrenic. He needs to take his meds, and if he doesn’t, he needs to be committed, and his firearm collection seized.

    He’s working himself up into a full “What’s the frequency, Kenneth?” moment, in my opinion.

  18. David H. Says:

    Long-time reader of Tam’s, who is (no offense, Uncle) the best gunblogger on the planet.

    I’m sure she’s working on the at every appropriate level, but if outside support would be helpful (ie, polite calls to the guy’s local PD or the like), a lot of people would be down. I’m sure Tam would want to keep any folks involved in the planning limited to those very close to her, but if there is any way public pressure would be helpful, please ask Tam to let us know.

  19. Tim Says:

    For a delusional schizophrenic he sure has a nice house. Big pool, right next to the golf course there in Sebring. Just saying.

  20. Shootin' Buddy Says:

    Wookie Sushi would be a great band name.

  21. emdfl Says:

    Tell us more, Tim, heh, heh.

  22. mikee Says:

    I don’t Facebook, but I did comment pretty regularly at Tam’s blog, and found her writing style, topics, and expertise wonderful.

    This may make me Facebook. And even my kids couldn’t do that.

  23. Chris Says:

    I will miss Tam a lot, as I have since she moved (up North) a few years ago.

    She is an incisive writer and a friend.

  24. NotClauswitz Says:

    Crap, I have become dependent on the snark – but I will NOT go to the Facebooger.

  25. Bubblehead Les Says:

    Keeping the Porch Light On in three, two,…..

  26. McThag Says:

    Getting someone Baker Acted is relatively simple.

    Like swatting, but with padded rooms!

  27. mariner Says:

    Perhaps you’ll stay in touch and let us know from time to time that she’s OK.

  28. NotClauswitz Says:

    Hate to give a delusional schitzo with a big golf-course house any added attention, but this creep and how to defeat such is likely to be a big topic at GBR-IX.

  29. Kristophr Says:

    Tim:For a delusional schizophrenic he sure has a nice house. Big pool, right next to the golf course there in Sebring. Just saying.

    I’m sure his relatives won’t mind being appointed his financial trustees while the State of Florida helps him out with his mental illness.

    These sleezebags win when you disappear. If we all leave, they will take over. If we fight back, they will leave.

  31. Jennifer Says:

    Hope it’s temporary.

  32. anonny mouse Says:

    *snip – ed.

    unverified information, but it might be interesting to folks here.

  33. Beaumont Says:

    It is difficult to imagine a worse group of enemies to have than Tam and her readers. I almost feel sorry for the Sebring Sicko. Almost.

  34. James Says:

    Just wanted to post somewhere to wish Tam well. I discovered the gun blogs via her 7 years ago or so, and have visited often ever since. Thanks for all the free ice cream over the years. God bless.

  35. KM Says:

    Sucks to lose one with snarkability like that but I’m in the NotClauswitz camp…I will not do FaceF**k.

  36. Seerak Says:

    This blows. I thought I’d picked up malware or something when I went to her site and got the Google login prompt.

  37. Kristophr Says:

    You realize that putting up an internet shrine to your victim is also good evidence?

  38. Mr Evilwrench Says:

    I offered to hunt him down for her, like she needs it. Hate to see her go.

  39. Seerak Says:

    She appears to be back, but with the comments off.

  40. Oldbutnotstupid Says:

    I’m do glad Tam is posting again. Hers is my favorite gun blog.
