Who is Savonarola?

Postby Savonarola » Thu Jan 19, 2006 11:09 pm

For those users familiar with nwapolitics.com, Savonarola went by the username "Interested Reader."

As I have decidedly become more than a mere interested reader, I have reverted back to an older username.

I have to wonder why one alias is better than another. Are you undercover? Hmmm...

About six years ago, a de-converted friend of mine chose to use the name "Savonarola" (after Girolamo Savonarola, a historical figure) for religion/politics-related online discussions, and I took over the account at his request. Since then I often use "Savonarola" when talking about these controversial topics.

The real Savonarola was a religious figure who, although never actually deconverting, promoted political reforms and opposed some of the inane orthodoxy of the church. While he was on their side, the church loved him; after not blindly bowing to their authority, though, the church had him simultaneously hanged and burned.

Do you like to act like a 5 year old who just discovered the internet like Darrel does? He was sending me links of gay porn because I told him that he should look into researching other material than what supports what he already believes. He then tried attacking my mother, saying he was going to rape her tonight. He didn't know she's been dead for 3 years, or maybe he did who knows. Either way I hope that you find more productive things to do than bitching and crying on an internet forum.

Seriously, do I even need to say anything?

Here is a note I just posted to the facebook thread that these hillbillies came from:

***
As you folks choose to spam our forum with hate and venom, I will advise you that copies are being kept, IP's noted, and comments such as:

"He then tried attacking my mother, saying he was going to rape her tonight."

Can be considered terroristic threatening. I assure you that the authorities take such comments seriously, and if/when you or your parents receive a visit from the police, or are contacted by my lawyer, you also will begin to take your actions seriously as well.

What unfortunate behavior. I imagine Brian and Ticon are rather embarrassed.
