I observe that the masked 'Amway' Lord Haw Haw and Kamikaze of commerce has finally admitted (in a feeble comment on your Blog) that, yes, he is David J. Steadson the psychological Wizard of Oz. However, we have no proof that 'IBOFB,' 'Insider,' etc., are all one person.
Is there no end to the list of academic disciplines in which young Master Steadson pretends to be an expert? Now he can tell us all about French civil law. Sadly, the poor little lad's clumsily-worded threat that 'France has some of the most liberal libel laws in the world,' implies almost the exact reverse of what he intended. In reality, it is more correct to say that it would be easier to win a libel case in a country where the libel laws are broad-ranging and strictly, or rigorously, applied.
It's a shame that Mr. Steadson, and his de facto bosses, have decided not to sue us for libel (and after all his huffing and puffing), because I was really looking forward to explaining to the judge that, in the past, the masked 'Amway' Lord Haw Haw has pretended intellectual authority by claiming that I was exhibiting a lack of culture to describe his 'IBOFB' disguise as being that of the camp, comic-book hero 'Zorro.' Unfortunately, in fancy-dress shops, the 'Zorro' outfit and that of a more-recent fictional character, the 'Dread Pirate Roberts' (who features in the 1973 novel by William Goldman,'The Princess Bride') are one and the same. It is true, however, that the pretty picture which the 'Amway' Lord Haw Haw has borrowed as his signature, is of an actor in the role of the 'Dread Pirate Roberts'. Interestingly, during this story, 'Roberts' is revealed as not being one individual, but a series of individuals who keep passing the fearsome 'Dread Pirate Roberts' name, reputation and profitable criminal activities to a series of chosen criminal successors. Like its transient boss, the crew of Roberts' ship is constantly being changed, whilst each former Roberts remains aboard (in secret) as the First Mate. Thus, virtually every character in this story is controlled by a wealthy criminal elite who steadfastly present a mind-numbing fiction as fact, whilst anyone in a position to discover the truth about the 'Dread Pirate Roberts,' is kicked off the ship or assassinated.
I'm sure you will agree, Shyam, that Mr. Steadson's camp disguise was very well chosen, for 'The Princess Bride' has frightening parallels with cultism and organized crime in general, and with 'Amway' in particular.
