Another thing I’ve learned about Olyscoop: ask him who he is publically, he takes his site down.

If you’re interested in Olyscoop, his January and February archives are still online. Hopefully he doesn’t take these down as well.

UPDATE: And, now if Olyscoop takes down his archives too, you can view them here, at the official Olyscoop Archives.

Hm. Anyway, for the sake of complete truth in the face of, uhhmmm… something, here is the entire conversation (including stuff below) I’ve had with Olyscoop today and yesterday.

By the way Olyscoop, if you think I didn’t put something in about our email conversation, you can post a comment.

Why do you lie to your readers?

I’m disappointed, Emmett. You sure seem like a really intelligent guy,

but you won’t even address my questions to you. I would like to share

info. with you, but you won’t even attempt a compromise.

Maybe when you have a moment you’ll be able to tell me what you think

you accomplished with your impolitic manner and your refusal to admit

that you may have charged ahead too quickly — qualities of the

current occupant of the White House.

No. That was not intended as a compliment.

Either way, why the number from the Governor’s office?

That is all I want to know.

You don’t work for the Governor, so why the number?
