After 110 comments and too many correspondences from reformed, newly-sainted commenters (read: people fearful of damaging their own reputations) pleading to remove certain things they’d written from our public thread, we finally shut down comments on the Hammer Communications story.
That was a few weeks ago. Since the story came out, I’ve heard little rumors about Jack Shoptaw spottings here and there. But finally he has re-emerged in the most public place of all—-the internet.
Well, he started tweeting again. After an initial “Hello world!” greeting in March, he paused for a few months. Then, we had a sudden rush of urls, and quick tweets in late July. The last one was seven days ago.
Perhaps, Shoptaw has gone back into Twitter hiding again? I hope not.
