With regard to the whole Roissy in DC/Lady Raine dustup, I think Ferdinand Bardamu says it best: Extremely incisive and incredibly foolish.
Having seen some of the back-and-forth first hand (Jesus Christ, the woman just. would. not. go. away.), I think it’s safe to say that Roissy was employing The Other McCain’s Rule 4. Lady Raine is such a parody of white trash that it staggers the imagination to believe that she isn’t someone’s Oxycontin-fueled fictional character splashed across the pages of a 21st-Century equivalent of the “penny dreadful”, but there she is–in all her trailer-park glory. Roissy’s mistake was in not spiking her once and for all after he found her MySpace page–in short, “Never Wound The King”. That’s why I (and others) recommended that Obsidian not bother engaging in debate with her–the woman has no grasp of logic beyond the service of her own justifications. Obsidian seems to have done better than I would have expected, but I would re-iterated the same advice today as I did then: She’s a living example of what Catherine Aird warned: “If you can’t serve as a good example, then you’ll just have to serve as a horrible warning.”.
