La Strump gets blackballed from BetterComms TowersM y friend and colleague Shel Holtz is the latest in a lengthening line of Comms bloggers singled out for criticism by La Strump.

In his rather erudite post, Hiding behind the facade, Shel goes to some length to politely rebuke a personal attack.

The Strump then decides to attack not only Shel, but one of his blog’s visitors:

Shut up Alice.

First Crescenzo’s attack on Jenkins, now La Strump’s attack on Shel. Whatever happened to good manners?

Well, I’ve taken a stand against such nonsense and put La Strump’s IP address into my spam blacklist file. I don’t see why my readers should have to weather the slings and arrows of La Strump’s outrageous spelling, grammer and childish temper tantrums. I call it exercising my editorial and publishing rights.

Let the firestorm of immature invective about me start, but it won’t be starting on this blog.

    It’s your blog, Lee; you should be able to preclude whomever you wish. I’m sorely tempted to do the same, but I’m enjoying watch “Amanda” hang itself on its own words. In its latest diatribe, it makes clear that it thinks that the PR profession at large is without worth and anyone who works in it is a “nincompoop.” That kind of generalization is called “bigotry” where I come from, the same sort of nonsense as “all blondes are dumb,” “all Jews are tightwads,” and “all politicians are liars.” So, for the time being, I’ll leave my blog open to “Amanda” so it can continue to put its idiocy and bigotry on public display. Of course, if it goes too far, I’ll gleefully pull the plug.

    I’m just removing the oxygen where I can, Shel. This is a fire that will eventually die through lack of oxygen, or as Phil Gomes says [http://www.philgomes.com/blog/2006/04/strumpys-act-is-older.htm], she will eventually die from all the bruising caused by 10-foot barge poles. Personally, I wouldn’t touch her/him with a 10-foot barge pole myself…
