Beyond Irony

In the comments on one of Dean Esmay's posts about 'The Agonist' (no link for the plagiarist), someone calling himself Norm Jenson writes:

I'd like to see the screenshot of "Intellectual property is theft."

I'm sure he would. I wonder if this is the same Norm Jenson who registered http://www.pejmanpundit.com and related URLs, thereby forcing Pejman Yousefzadeh to find a new name (Pejmanesque) when he recently moved off BlogSpot? Even a right-winger like me will admit that there are cases in which property (intellectual or otherwise) is indeed theft -- morally, ethically, and often legally.

Yup. That would be him. And as always, Norm's hypocrisy is utterly astounding to behold.

Then again, this is what genuinely pathetic people do when they don't have an argument to stand on, so I guess I shouldn't be surprised. And besides, I rather like the new name.

What you should have done is stay on Blogspot while changing your site name. Once N.J. had spent another $35 each to register www.pejmanesque.com, www.pejmanesque.org, and www.pejmanesque.net (and don't forget Niue), you could have changed the name again a few weeks later, and then again (sort of like Andrea Harris), eventually forcing him into bankruptcy, at which point you could have finally unveiled your unencumbered MT site.
