Let's review

Hi Alan,
First of all I would like to commend you on your persistence in your struggle to topple all that is Tod Maffin. To put all that time and energy into one person, all the details and research you had to go through. For what? Something that strongly resembles hate mail? Don't get me wrong, I'm for free speech as much as the next guy, but such negativity...

Where does it come from
Alan? Did Tod steal your lunch money as a child? Did he take the love of your life? Or maybe you thought he was the love of your life until you found out he was straight?
What depths do you have to go to to think up such drivel? Such incoherent ramblings? Are you even an employee of the CBC ('cause that's who's blog you've been reading), or did you just Google the name 'Tod Maffin' one day on a whim, maybe a bit of cyber stalking? You have taken pictures outside his home, so I think you've clearly stepped over that line, it's become real stalking at this point.
Gosh, it's an obsession.
I understand that other bloggers won't publish your comments. Have you figured out why yet? It's not because they're loyal to Tod, it's because you are clearly insane. And as the only comments I've seen on this blog are negative towards you and your crappy writing, I think you are the only one with this point of view.
I have to admit, hiding behind an anonymous blog is a genius way to attack a public figure. Why haven't others thought of it first? Oh yeah, because they're not pathetic little creeps with nothing better to do with their time than rant on about nothing but hate.
One more thing Alan, have you never heard the old saying "No publicity is bad publicity"? If you really think this is doing anyone any harm, you're sadly mistaken.
I have two pieces of advice for you:
1. Get a job (you must be unemployed to be able to keep up this little vendetta).
2. Take a writing course if you are going to continue to dazzle us with your insight, perhaps something in the sci fi or fantasy genre.

Lovely comment.

My full name is Allan Sorensen (yours is new to me, and to the internet as well, it seems), and I can most often be found in Toronto, sometimes Vancouver.
Possibly Winnipeg as well, soon.

But then you already seem to know that I'm all over the place.

I seriously doubt that I'm capable of toppling Tod Maffin.
He looks quite tall in his picture, compared to little ol' me.

Should I be disappointed that Tod is straight?
I hadn't really thought about it, but I understand your need to bring it up for your little joke.

That's Tod's home?!?
This is the first time I've heard that.
How do you know?

I'm comforted that you too are "for free speech as much as the next guy".
And I'm all for yours, as long as you're willing to register with Blogger.

Did Tod take the love of my life?
That may be truer than you know.
But nah.
I gots lots of them.

I can only go as low into the depths as deep sea diving will safely allow.

I wore Obsession for a long time, but got tired of it.
But I suppose no matter what I wear, you'll say I stink.

No, I can't say I've ever heard the saying "No publicity is bad publicity".
I'll have to ponder that one, but you may be on to something there.
I have heard the saying "there's no such thing as bad publicity".

I do appreciate your comment, and all the dork effort that went into it.

Please, any time you have more advice to dispense - I hope I'm there to receive it.

My job?
You wish you had my job.
And that may explain why I seem so angry and hateful (to you, Tod, the world) ... when I'm away from it.

Not that talking with you is a waste of time or anything.

What's your problem?

Tod Maffin's version of absolute power.
I wrote a comment at a famous blog.
Tod didn't like it, and took the intial steps of legal action to have it removed.
He was successful.

It made me an unhappy camper.
And I happen to really like it here.
