There is a small but deadly trick you can do in Blogger to enter comments without having an account. You can click on Other and fill in the information manually. How is it deadly? Because there's no way to verify if the person who makes the comment is in fact the actual person.
Apparently somebody hated me or this site enough to wreak havok over at Tressel's World by posting asinine comments as me, alienating just about everybody on that website. Whoever the monster is, he's apparently been at this for a while.
I posted the following over at Tressel's World and I'll repeat it here:
Somebody has played a nasty, nasty trick on both me and you guys.I could go on and on about why and how this hurt me, but there really is no point in doing it. People are going to think what they think. All I can do is apologize for myself (and for him or her that fucked me over) and hope somebody believes me.
Listen, I’m the real Steven Swain (the best way to tell is that my picture shows up in the comments section and if you click on the link, a Blogger profile shows up instead of just the website), and I never heard of this site or Coach Tressel until I started getting some messed up emails on my site.
I don’t know you guys, and I don’t follow Buckeye football. Someone apparently put my name and web address on the comment form and pissed everybody off with a bunch of really stupid comments.
I know why they did it. Because I seemed like an easy mark. I'm not mnacho and I frequently post stories about clothes and design. So automatically I gotta be some kind of closet homo and douchebag. I'm no homo, and I'm only a douchebag occasionally ;-)
Rest assured, the real Swain wouldn’t do shit like what happend here. What would be the point? I do my own thing, why would I fault y'all for doing yours? I’m sure nobody believes me, but it’s the truth.
I got too much at stake to fuck with you guys like that. My name and research is all over the internet and I’m pretty much known as “the mall guy” because I like malls and retail. Even if I was stupid enough to do something like what’s been done here, I would be smart enough to at least use a fake name, like somebody did to me apparently.
I’m not going to take up any more space than I have to here, but I do apologize for whoever the hell did this to me and to you. It’s made me pretty angry, and you guys are probably angrier than I am.
Best Vest, please delete the previous comments. I’m not sure who did them, but I will tell you, it’s not the real Swain. I am.
