Conflict of Interest Letter of the Day

A conspiracy theory:
Good one, Stranger.
For months now someone calling himself “ecce homo” has been posting comments constantly. He’s your most dedicated troll, always on Slog, he’s rude, he’s obnoxious, and he’s positively obsessed with Dan Savage. And who else do we know that’s constantly on Slog, constantly posting, rude, obnoxious, and positively obsessed with Dan Savage?
Dan Savage is “ecce homo,” and “ecce homo” is Dan Savage. Want proof? Late last night Savage posted this comment to one of his own Slog posts:Okay. I was at Pony tonight for Circus, and I thought I saw this guy—this girly boy or the boyly girl that’s tormenting me. But just as suddenly as he or she appeared, he or she was gone. Maybe I hallucinated him/her.

Nine minutes later “ecce homo” posted this comment:How was the Glory hole, “Dad”?
Gonna write your next book on what an attentive and admirable parent you are?

According to previous posts written by this “ecce homo” person, he’s a respectable, sober-minded, suburban gay dad with two children. And yet there he was, ready to pounce on Savage at midnight, minutes after Dan himself posted comment to an old Slog post written by Dan himself.
Usually when people engage in sock puppetry it’s to defend themselves or stroke their own ego. Leave it to Savage to create a sock puppet to beat himself up.
