NOTE TO RICHARD RYAN: You have been warned many, many times in the past 12 months that if you keep up your harassment of people on this blog, we reserve the right to print selected comments of yours in full, including your various email addresses and IP addresses, and also to contact your ISP(s) and/or other relevant authorities. The fact that you have continued even after that warning would seem to imply that you consent to these comments being made public.

(…more below the fold)
Because of a huge recent influx of vile comments from the same deranged idiot (Richard Ryan, who usually uses IPs in the Telstra/Dodo 58.163.13x.xxx and 149.135.11x.xxx ranges but has since expanded his IP ranges), I thought it prudent to continue documenting the worst of them in one place. To keep the pages from taking ages to load, I’ve divided them into sections.
So, here are a few select highlights of the hundreds received thus far. Not reprinted are those pre-July ’08, before we realized what a persistent, obsessive madman he would turn out to be, or the many that Tim Blair, Andrew Bolt and others continually have to delete from their blogs (both are aware of the stalking that’s been going on for almost a year now and the games Ryan plays, including impersonating a “normal” commenter (often myself) and complaining about “that awful Richard Ryan” among other weird things in an attempt to get published – who knows how the insane mind works…).
I would ask that if any of my fellow editors see any more like these in our comment/spam queue, either send me a screencap (press “Ctrl” and “PrtSc” simultaneously to put it on your clipboard, paste it into a graphics program and save as a .jpg) – I’m collecting them in case things get even more out of hand, i.e. especially if he succeeds in finding me “in real life,” as it appears attempts have already been made in that direction. Thanks.
Just FYI, the comments referring to cancer are aimed at the fact that he knows that yes, I have been ill, and no, I am not interested in blogging on it just now, preferring in my case to keep the Internet a CFZ (cancer-free zone). The comments referring to “Ash” refer to our main blog administrator, who tragically died in a car accident in January ’09.
Oh, and you can click on the .jpg clips to see them full-size in a new window. Behold the Leftard maniac in all his vileness.
I just think these need to be collated in one place, at least the worst of them, and so did Ash. We only started collecting them in July ‘07 after it became patently obvious that he was seriously deranged. On other blogs, he’s also written disgusting comments under Macca’s, Alan of Sydney’s, Nonna’s, Sally Hardy’s and others (including, as I recently discovered, Rosie’s) screen names. He definitely needs keeping a close eye on.
UPDATE AGAIN: More that just came in.
