Over at Skull/Bones there is a post discussing the activity over at Wikipedia. The ensuing discussion (21 comments now, including 2 from self) is joined by a character named Miss Anthropy, who takes issue with Rachel Holmes bringing up Robert Beltran's apparent role in the organization as it related to Ken Kronberg's status (all of 1 sentence):
Holmes: It may have had to do in part with Robert Beltran and his ascendancy as the Shakespeare “expert”–what a joke that is.
Miss Anthropy: What’s the joke? I was told Beltran’s given up and he isn’t doing it any longer but you’re sure POd. You keep bringing it up. What’s the story?
There is some piss poor analysis going on here, which MA compounds in a later comment:
Schlanger’s the one you should be after not Beltran and you know it. Keep your eye on the ball instead of setting up straw men.
I am not sure what caused her to toss that into the mix, since RH hadn't responded. When she does respond, she makes it clear that Beltran is not her main concern. So MA comes back with her own response that features this:
The question you should be asking is why Harley and Lyn chased him so hard. They’re the ones who had the master plan.
You should be asking what that master plan was and why they did what they did.
I chimed in, and MA gave up this as (his)her final answer:
You’re both wrong but if you can’t see the forest for the trees I can’t help you. All I can tell you is to dig deeper, if you really want the answers. It’s up to you to pick up the shovel. Sayonara.
I commented again:
I am going to guess that Miss “Deep Throat” Anthropy believes that Beltran was going to be a sock puppet for Harley and become the new ‘face’ of the organization in the US. If that was the plan then it must have fallen pretty flat, given his current invisibility. I think that if s/he really had any info on any of this s/he’d find a way to share it. Hit & run tactics don’t do anything for one’s credibility.
Why care about all this? Because MA's manner of commenting reminded me of past allegations about Beltran's relationship with the LYM being very onesided, that he was a reluctant player and at the mercy of the leadership. I cannot attest to the veracity of those claims, although I personally don't buy any of it because no evidence was ever forthcoming. If MA has anything worth sharing then s/he needs to put the cards on the table. Otherwise they can expect to be treated as just another troll with nothing to contribute to the conversation.
