Revenge Is the Best Revenge

Filed under: General,Humor,Scum — Patterico @ 11:31 pm

Remember Eliot Stein, the guy who cybersquatted on cathyseipp.com? The guy who, while Cathy was dying, wrote a “letter” purporting to be from Cathy, in which “Cathy” called her daughter a “skank” and herself a “hack” and a terrible parent?

Remember that guy?

Well, payback is a bitch.

The post title is the invention of Amy Alkon. I have no idea who is responsible for the linked site.

But whoever it is, they have — to quote Eliot Stein’s description of himself — an “incredible sense of humor.”

  1. Oh my stars!

    I haven’t had a chande to mention this yet but there’s a rather well-known (at least in film circles) critic named Elliot Stein who THIS Elliot Stein would very likely not care to be confused with at all.

  4. Scott, I believe Khan Noonian Singh was quoting the Klingon adage. But I’m not going to dispute. After all, only a fool fights in a burning house.

  6. Maybe like Fisk and Fri$ch, we can make Eliot Stein an internet verb?

  9. Amy Alkon is not the author. I emailed her lauding her and she told me she has no idea who is.

  10. Magdalena-

    I’m glad you liked it. Stein is a monster and deserves no mercy for what he did. One cannot take too lightly the emotional damage that he may have caused Seipp’s family at the absolute worst time. He has a superiority complex and I wanted to take him down a notch. If he was fighting a terminal illness I wouldn’t have done it.

    I had never heard of this remarkable women before a few days ago. What is obvious is that she was well beloved by all who knew her. I think we give Stein and his ilk far too much credit. I would be very surprised if someone as thoughtful and talented as Cathy Seipp had raised a daughter who was any less talented or capable. Stein had a lot of sand kicked in his face as a kid. Not enough, but he is a joke. The pay back is truely spectacular.

  12. mm,

    Take it a little easier on the graphics. Some of us browse on a full stomach. 😉 But I think you have pretty much captured his essence and you may even be being kind to him.

  14. He has a blog now:

    http://www.eliotstein.com/blog/

    Oddly, considering how hated he is, he allows comments.

  15. Yeah, that’s weird! He oddly just set it up today. [giggles, then go to sleep]

    It’s his real site, if that’s what you’re thinking. It’s been around a little while. He was doing replies on his front page before. If you go to Lukeford.net you can get some background on his new attempt at media.

  17. Speaking of jerking off…rhetorically, that’s what everyone involved in this asininely juvenile Stein v Seipp et al spat are doing. At least they’re helping to remove any doubt as to who has class and who doesn’t: none of them do.

    eh (af0596)

  18. Cathy had class to spare.

    David Ehrenstein (2289f8)

  19. #17 eh: Thank you for that stunning insight, except ‘spat’ is hardly an accurate description of one man’s scurrilous, venomous and deceitful publications under Cathy Seipp’s name.

    “Sock Puppet” is not accurate… maybe Used Scumbag?
