Blogwar undeclared against Naomi Wolf; psychiatrist called instead
Back in October, I declared Blogwar against Naomi Wolf because she didn't approve a comment or two I left on the HuffPost.
Now, I am rescinding that call, and instead am considering calling in a psychiatrist for her:
Almost everyone I work with on projects related to this campaign for liberty has been experiencing computer harassment: emails are stripped, messages disappear. That's not all: people's bank accounts are being tampered with: wire transfers to banks vanish in midair. I personally keep opening bank accounts that are quickly corrupted by fraud. Money vanishes. Coworkers of mine have to keep opening new email accounts as old ones become infected. And most disturbingly to me personally is the mail tampering I have both heard of and experienced firsthand. My tax returns vanished from my mailbox. All my larger envelopes arrive ripped straight open apparently by hand. When I show the postman, he says "That's impossible." Horrifyingly to me is the impact on my family. My childrens' report cards are returned again and again though perfectly addressed; their invitations are turned back; and my daughters many letters from camp? Vanished. All of them. Not one arrived. Try explaining that to a smart thirteen year old. Try explaining it in a way that still makes her feel secure and comfortable.
What she's saying is certainly possible, and I'm not putting it above some forces in the government to do some of those things. And, if they were doing that, they might intentionally be sloppy a) in order to make her paranoid, and b) in order to make her appear paranoid when she retells the tale. But, things like the above happen to people all the time, and certain people may bring some things like that on themselves through things like not having a secure mailbox.
However, in the case of someone who's mostly famous for encouraging Al Gore to go alpha, I don't think anyone in the government would bother.
