UPDATE: Since the time of this posting Mr. Bouchillon has done a tremendous job of turning things around and his website has dramatically improved. I now visit and comment on his website fairly frequently, and am very pleased to have this unpleasantness behind us. Mr. Bouchillon is rare testament to the power of personal redemption, and a success story of the Virginia blogosphere.
Mr. Bouchillon, now famous for reacting in a somewhat inappropriate manner to some of the interesting Judy Feder photos which I’ve posted, has managed to obtain the domain which had been posting photos of my family with the “Virginia is for inbreeding” caption and taken down that content. I’d like to thank Mr. Bouchillon for managing to accomplish something that I hadn’t really had the time to work on and had been troubling me for some time. Whatever his real intentions, the actual result of his actions are much appreciated. Our families are not fair game for personal attacks, and he has removed one of these attacks. Concrete actions like this goes a long way to resolving bad feelings.
The domain registrar for what I’ll refer to as FTR had agreed to furnish the name and address of the domain owner, and after consulting with my attorney last week we decided to move forward with figuring out who this individual was. I had been advised by some of my local connections to turn the information over the the Attorney General’s office in parallel with civil proceedings, and spoke briefly with Bill Bolling at the Martinsville conference about seeking his counsel in how this may be best pursued. Fortunately Mr. Bouchillon’s efforts make the time and expense of this effort unnecessary, and that’s very helpful with all that’s going on right now.
Apparently this FTR site will be used to parody BVBL, which is fine with me although I can’t imagine anyone publicly associating themselves with something this vulgar. I expect the content there will be interesting, and I actually hope that it doesn’t lend additional evidence to arguments regarding the moral bankruptcy of the far left. Many times these are pretty imaginitive and creative folks, and can come up with some great stuff as long as they can dial down personal animosities a bit and focus on the humor.
It will be interesting to watch.
