A brush up on history before I begin.
Shannon Stoy, Christina Stoy, Blink…whatever she is calling herself now, published ill informed insinuations and accusations against me when my neighbor was abducted. I called her on it, and she refused to retract or delete her blog posts.
So I began a campaign to expose her as the horrible person that she is, which was fairly easy, given her documented track record of trying and failing to be a sensationalist on the internet. Blink’s website hasn’t been updated in a very long time, and it appears that it is now a chat thread for three or four people, rehashing the same stuff day in and day out. It’s mostly just wild speculation about various criminal cases and pandering to the ego of Christina Stoy.
That’s a quick recap of my relationship with Blink. She wrote a bunch of verifiably untrue things about me, so I fought back.
This last week, there were indictments in the case of my neighbor, and it turns out of course I had nothing to do with it. I’m just a guy who tried to help find a little girl, and was dragged through the mud on the internet by a heartless fool because of it.
Reading an article in my local paper today, I was reminded of Blink. Her accusations have continued to follow me these last few years, and it’s nice to know that beyond a horrible person being removed from the streets and meeting justice for his crimes, the discussion regarding me an my neighbor can be closed.
That discussion can also be closed regarding my neighbors, as they are vindicated of involvement. The local paper ran a front page article essentially saying : Sorry. It’s commendable that in light of recent discovery, journalists offer apology based on the discovery.
Blink would never do that, because her greatest flaw isn’t that she made a mistake. We all make mistakes. In fact, I don’t believe she made a mistake. She knew what she was doing, which was twisting things to paint a picture that she thought would get her publicity and attention. That’s a mean a thing to do at the expense of another human being, and it’s a window into her greatest flaw : she is heartless and doesn’t care.
She would of course counter that she cares about victims and children. To which I reply : How does sundering my name, making things up about me, and spreading disinformation regarding a criminal case that have followed me for years help anyone?
It doesn’t. All it does is hurt. Everyone involved. Except for Blink. For her, it’s good attention. It feeds her ego and her need to be the one in the know, the one who has the dish, the gossip who pretends to be a journalist.
If anything, I like to think that I had a hand in removing her as an active presence on the internet. Her site is a ghost town. Maybe she just has other things going on, or maybe I exposed her so broadly that she shrunk away.
Which would be terrific. Because for once in her careless, harmful, reckless mudslinging blogging career, the hurt she causes bounced back.
You’d expect a person who accused someone of involvement in a horrible crime would apologize when the truth is revealed.
A decent person would do that. But we’re talking about Shannon Stoy, so….I’m not holding my breath.
