If you are new to the blogosphere, and especially if you are blogging about PR, Marcomms and business communication activities in general, the chances are high that ‘Amanda Chapel’ will eventually come and pay you a visit.

I banned ‘Amanda’ a long time ago from this site (back in 2006, no less), but that hasn’t stopped ‘her’ trying to leave comments via other IP addresses. After a while I stopped deleting them because I I figured my readers were smart enough to figure out ‘her’ game for themselves.

My colleague-in-arms Stephen (aka the always readable and often rightly controversial twitterlebrity ‘Vaspers the Grate’ and also aka PluPerfecter) has compiled a wonderful list of posts that ‘outs’ the less-than-delightful ‘Amanda’, and I strongly urge you to let yourself be forewarned (which is, after all, forearmed).

If you run a corporate blog, you might want to have your IT folk ban La Strump’s IP address from leaving any comments.

Oh, and you’d think someone would have told Brian that using images from SXC.HU (my favourite photo site, by the way, and source of many of the images I use in my presentations) ethically requires the user to acknowledge the photographer. But then ethics has never been Brian’s strong point…

    Thanks for linking to my post exposing the Amanda Chapel aka Abigail Baffing aka Brian Connolly team troll hoax.

    As the Google King of Blogocombat (proven when Googling that word blogocombat), I feel it is my sacred duty to warn my dearly beloved blogospheric pals and peers about such unsavory invaders.

    To use blogs and Twitter to attack bloggers and Twitter members, what an ironic and pathetic endeavor. This libelous troll brigade gets bashed by me every so often, usually triggered by their relentless attacks on my comrades and allies.

    I mount my white steed and go forth with the shining rays of majestic truth and impose the spear point of honesty upon their cowardly anonymous souls.

    They hate being revealed as the scum that they are. All in a day’s work for your humble servant.
