More importantly, why does she think I’m Lynn Thomas? I still don’t know who Lynn Thomas is, or why I should care. But for whatever reason, this @pptoas person, who’s twitter handle is Penny Alesi is absolutely convinced that I’m Lynn Thomas and therefore she spent the last few days twitting about me. She didn’t @mention me until tonight, so I didn’t know about it. But now she has @mentioned me, and I’m no closer to understanding what this person wants, what they think I’ve done to her, or anything else! So I’m pleading with my readers, who the hell is Penny Alesi and who on God’s green earth is Lynn Thomas? And by all my readers, I include Bill Schmalfeldt. Since he started doxing me as Lynn Thomas, I’d appreciate if he could come down off his twit festival and seriously answer the question of who the hell Penny Alesi is.
Here’s the first twit I got notified from her.
Since I have no idea who Penny Alesi is, and have no idea what her beef with me is, I have no idea who she thinks I should apologize to. I don’t know what she thinks she knows about me, but she’s wrong. Let me say again, I am not Lynn Thomas and I have no idea who Lynn Thomas is. But she clearly thinks I’m Lynn Thomas.
I have no idea who owns the firstname.lastname@example.org email address is, and have no intention of trying to figure it out, but if Penny Alesi is trying to scare me because she’s found my email address, it didn’t work. I have no association with that email and never have. As for the second, that link goes to a page listing the bibliography of Lynn Thomas. She’s got what looks like some nifty books. Is she a writer by profession?
But knowing that Lynn Thomas writes books in the realm of SF/F and Fandom really doesn’t tell me who the heck she is. And if you’re obsessed with her, I don’t quite get why sending me her bibliography is supposed to convince me of? Am I suppose to quiver in my boots because you think I edited Chicks Dig Time Lords? Because really, I don’t care.
Then there is this odd twit.
I don’t even know what this means. Nola named on Running Wolf Blog? What in the world am I supposed to make of that? I clicked on the link, and it takes me to the nola.com website, and it’s all a list of people graduating from Nunez Community College. I don’t know where Nunez CC is, and don’t really care enough to look it up. Even stranger, it’s from 2008. There is, on the lengthy list, a Kristin Lynn Thomas graduating in some sort of certificate program for applied medical science. Or something like that. The point is, I have no idea how this article that originally appeared in the Times Picayune of New Orleans has anything to do with my blog. It makes no sense at all.
I think it has something to do with my love of wolves, because yesterday there was this twit, but I wasn’t @mentioned in it.
I don’t know what dots she’s connecting, but she’s kinda scaring me. The obsession she spends on whoever this is she is talking about is spooky, and I wish she’d move away from me and focus on her real target. Do real people talk like that? Oh, and this tweet came out while I was toying with a new theme, the first of two I played with yesterday, and so far I’ve settled on the second. At least for now. I know she must be stalking my blog, because this is the next twit.
Now anyone who has been reading here for any length of time, it is quite clear that all I did is change themes. Every single one of my 333 posts (I think this will make 334) are still here, going all the way back to August 2008, when I started this blog. So I’m more confused than ever as to why she’s taking notes & copying to documents for discovery. Discovery of what? I haven’t deleted any posts. And I’ve never once written anything about Penny Alesi prior to this post. I commented to here once, when she called me out in a post for being Lynn Thomas. And I laughed at her. Here’s the exchange that happened on the article I wrote congratulating the defendants on getting so many aspects of the Kimberlin v Walker et al lawsuit dismissed. Her comment:
Why are YOU so interested in this?

And I responded with:
Hey everybody! This is pptoas, who is the first person to accuse me of being Lynn Thomas because she couldn’t follow a couple of simple links! She has harassed me on twitter and now, it would seem she has come here to harass me. Unfortunately for her, it is not her bandwidth, so I’m not going to put up with her weird rambling and lame accusations. Goodbye, Penny.
– me in reply to pptoas comment.
That wasn’t the first time she posted on my blog. She also sent this comment to my page about why I use the name Running Wolf.
Hey, I know someone else that had that last name. She’s not thrilled that you are using it by the way.
– pptoas in an approved comment on a page on this blog.
And of course, I responded with my usual kid gloves.
I really don’t care what your someone else is. I don’t even know what you mean by this message. Care to explain? Why would anyone care that they have the same last name as me? Are you implying that I’m using a pseudonym? Are you implying that this “Someone” is going to sue me because we have the same name?
More importantly, are you the piece of shit that convinced Bill that I was Lynn? Because not 24 hours after you called me Lynn on Twitter, Bill is calling me Lynn here. And you’re both stupid for even thinking that. Did you bother looking past the last two weeks on this blog? Are you mentally deficient in some way? I ask, because that’s a better answer than you’re just too lazy to take a small peak at just this blog and realize how amazingly stupid such a thing is. So which is it, stupid or lazy? You’ve no problems commenting here about me, my last name, and whatnot, but what about you? Who the fuck are you? Why is your wordpress private? What are you hiding inside that either stupid or lazy head?
– me in reply to pptoas comment
So that’s twice on this blog I’ve denied being Lynn Thomas. And even faildoxer Bill Schmalfeldt managed to quickly figure out that I’m not Lynn Thomas. He even admitted it on this Blog.
Mike, I’ve just been looking at your Facebook page. Sent a friend request in fact. I must say, I find your obsession with me baffling. I have nothing to do with you, you have nothing to do with me, and yet you have devoted your blog and your Facebook toward furthering my defamation. Earlier today, someone suggested that you were someone else. But if you are, you have created one dandy second life.
– Bill Schmalfeldt in an unapproved comment on this blog.
He also did it on an approved comment.
I was doing you a favor, Mike. Instead of just taking someone’s word, I did my own checking.
– Bill Schmalfeldt in an approved comment on this blog.
So who’s word was it, Bill? Could it have been this pptoas person who can’t seem to get it through her head that I’m not Lynn Thomas, have never been Lynn Thomas, don’t know Lynn Thomas, and don’t really care that pptoas is obsessed with Lynn Thomas, except that for some strange reason that I don’t understand, she thinks I’m Lynn Thomas.
But wait! What’s that at the bottom of my blog? Is it my About Me widget? And does it not provide links to my Facebook, Twitter, WordPress and LinkedIn pages? Which is how Bill “checked up” on me, including sending me a friend request after I’ve made it clear I’d only ever interact with him on this blog. Suddenly the only thing in my life more creepy than Bill Schmalfeldt is pptoas. And that’s really saying something.
So pptoas, or Penny, or whoever the fuck you are, here’s your chance. Say your peace. Prove to me that I’m not a 6’4″ biker from Alabama, and that I’m this Lynn Thomas person. And while you’re at it, explain to me who the fuck Lynn Thomas is. And why I should give a rat’s ass about her. Or you. And don’t go all mystical on me like the first time I asked you to explain. You remember that, right? You first hit me up on twitter, and I asked you what the fuck you were talking about, and you just gave me a cryptic “oh, you know.” Thanks for making that crystal murky clear. So now, try typing it all out, type slow, so I can read it, and tell me exactly what the fuck your beef is with me.
According to this article, Miss Alesi is HIV positive do to Jake Idema. That could explain much of the obsession.
Update II If what i’ve read is true, you have my sympathy, Penny. But I’m not who you think I am.
Update III Penny, the things I’ve learned tonight, I truly sympathize. But I’m no friend of Jack, no friend of yours, and no friend of anyone you may know. Please leave me alone.
