Frank Walton is banned

I was tolerating him for awhile, but from this point onward Frank Walton is banned from this blog. Frank, if you post here, even in response to this thread, your comment will be deleted. Then I will turn on comment moderation and not let any of your comments through, even though this will be a pain to everyone else.

This ban was prompted by a comment made by Walton in which he claimed that the members of the Rational Response Squad advocate shooting Christians. I followed the posted link, and found that the main basis for this claim was not not anything said by the actual members of the RRS, but a guest (one time, as far as I can tell). The comment was not even made on their show. His other basis was a comment made by Rook Hawkins about getting rid of people like Walton. This comment said nothing about actual violence, and occured in the context of Hawkins calling Walton on another bogus charge, in this case a charge of plagarism. It was the equivalent of saying "we should get rid of politicians who lie their way into office"--not in any way applying they should be killed.

Those familiar with Walton will know that this is part of a long pattern with him. I know Daniel Morgan consulted with a lawyer who said that if Walton's targets wanted to prosecute, they would have a strong libel case. I assume the RRS is fully aware of Walton's claims and has their reasons for not prosecuting.

In any case, this blog will not be a venue for libel. I have no intention of rescinding this ban at any point in the future--I once started deleting his comments before but let him back, and after a second offense I see no reason to be so forgiving.

The only way to kill a troll is to starve it to death. Feeding it only strengthens and emboldens it.

I hope Reggie, formerly known as InfidelGuy(TM), decides to sue his ass. I sent Reggie his contact information after I did some PI work using his IP and Intelius.

He's made racist and sexually lewd remarks about Reggie, especially concerning him being friends with a child molester, which could easily be shown to have damaged InfidelGuy's income -- making it an easy suit to win.

Honestly, I can't fathom what Frank Walton is hoping to acomplish. I've never been witness to and intelligent post he's made on any subject whatsoever, anywhere whatsoever.

It is also quite clear that all of his convictions by given to him by someone else. He has no original though, no ability to reason, no reading comprehension. Frank Walton is a detriment to the Christian apologetic community he claims to support. If I had a body of work composed as Frank Waltons is, and it was out there for everyone to see, I'd panic, and not just for the horrible spelling, syntactical and grammatical errors, but for the pure cowardice in avarice in which it is delivered.

Here's a quick look at his apologetics style.
Frank posted:

"Pretty stupid, just what I'd expect from an atheist. Have you even made a decent post except being an idiot? Whould you like some smakins for that lopsided face of yours? Eh, Eh, Can't hear you big nuggets, you sound like a big sisssy boy, you a sissy boy? Boy?
I'd be surprised if you didn't have aids already, queer-boy.
Frank Walton"


He betrays his own efforts at every turn. There is even a posting where he apparently called Mormons dogs:

If I didn't know better I'd think he was an atheist bent on embarrassing the efforts of Christians. But I do know better, he's a punk. He's the kind of guy who punches your little sister at recess, yet hides when you come to look for him.

Speaking of plagiarism, here is an example of Frank stealing someone’s cartoon, and using it as his own after a pathetic attempt to change the text.

And yet he calls Rook Hawkings a plagiarist?

Sir, you just made a threat on Frank Walton's life. I'll be sure to let him know about this.

Right. Because figuratively "killing" an unreasonable troll by "starving" him of attention is equal to a death threat. Such fantasies.

Think one of Hallq's points has now been proven.

Good looking out, Daddy. Hey, how did you know I like to fight? ;o)

Yup, he thought I was being libelous. He said to me:

"You're a pathetic little twerp, aren't you, in expending all of your energy, and your love for Jesus, in bashing the Infidel Guy and Loftus. Ever get laid? Drink a beer? Have a life? You poor bastard."

And I retorted with:

"I'm not so sure why Daniel is so interested in my penis or my sex life but at least I have both."

And that's all I wrote. You can read about it here. But then lo and behold, all of a sudden, he threatens a lawsuit against me saying I was being libelous!

LOL! What a pansy!

Well, if Morgan wants to fight me he can meet me in front of my house since he claims to have my home address. We can fight on the front lawn. *SHRUGS* Or in the garage. Either way, it won't be much of a fight because he's a little itty bitty man compared to me.

Thanks again,

Frank



how quickly Frank resorts to violence. Franks had a rough day on the net. He'll have a rougher one tomorrow

Think about it, BD. Daniel said "killing" a troll. Couldn't he have said "don't pay attention to him anymore"? But no, Daniel talked about killing Frank. I really hope Frank takes him to court.

Yes, he could have said "don't pay attention to him anymore", but that would be pointlessly typing out something that can be summed up in a short phrase that any child could tell wasn't meant to be taken non-literally.

Orwellian vocabulary for the day: Crimestop: Prevention of heretical thought by deliberately failing to grasp a simple analogy, parse a sentence within context, etcetera.

Today I've already seen the record for stupidity broken twice.

Okay, comment moderation has been enabled.

Most of the deleted comments (save one piece of spam) where made under a handle labled "Daddy Cool." This is who Mark was refering to with his comment "Frank Walton said... (posing as daddy cool)" At first I thought this identification was wrong, that Daddy Cool was actually someone trying to parody Walton, but then I saw him effectively admit to being Walton.

It's a shame when some loser with too much time on his hands has to ruin the environment in a blog for the blog owner and everyone else who wants to participate.

Frank commented on my blog once or twice. He didn't stay long enough to say anything interesting.

BaconEating AtheistJew said...

Frank polluted the Raving Atheist board with his mindless drivel as well.

Just another insecure Fundy in denial.

I have a troll too, that is why I have comment moderation on.

Just for one stupid troll.

Anonymous said...

I think we can guess which troll I'd be tempted to bring up. Ryan gave him a rather unflattering nickname.

Mark Cote said...

Oh c'mon Frank,
How do you reconcile your lying about not being "Daddy Cool, as cool as ice yet heart on fire", not being you, with your Jesus? You know it is you, we know it's you, and we know you are Cory W. You are a liar. Jesus knows it's you, hell, Helen Keller would know it's you. Plus nobody believes this imposter bullshit. You pose as others all the time. Why should we believe you're not obnoxio just for the attention, poor me I'm Frank Walton and I have an atheist stalker, Ted Bell, Mark Corte, etc.
It sounds just like your "friends" Daddy Cool, Cory W, and such.
It's not even a matter of ARE we WILLING to take you seriously, It's more that we CAN'T!

However on one point we agree, you seem to want your blogsite to be seen by as many people as possible, and so do most of us who think religion, and Christianity that spawns ignorance such as yours should be exposed.

Please don't mistake us for being as stupid as you think we are with the multiple identities. In closing, I wish every person on this planet was required to look at your site. We could end irrational thinking on this planet earlier. The sad thing is that some people will never stop believing no matter how much evidence is dump-trucked into their driveway.

Like the people who still believe in Sylvia Browne, even after the Shawn Holbrook debacle on Montel.

You Frank, are cut from the same cloth as Sylvia Browne believers..

Mark: Are you sure Cory Washington is a sock puppet? Because earlier in the month I got this comment from a "Cory Washington":

"I used to go to the same church as Frank Walton. We all pretty much thought he was gay, or at the very least very, very effeminate, plus he was always quite silly, yet had no sense of humor. His parents have a bit of money, and they always seemed a bit embarrased that he always did so poorly in school. I think he's a bit mentally challenged; he just always came across kind of dumb. I don't mean that in a mean way. He could toilet and feed himself. But I remember his folks got him a job as a target greeter/bag boy/guy who brings a big item to your car on a flat cart. He did help me get my big TV in my Honda by cutting it out of the box. I haven't seen him there for awhile. He still lives with his parents and the college he's attending is one of those bible correspondence things. I wouldn’t be surprised if he's got a doctorate by now; too bad he can't spell or use the English language.
I wish he'd find something else to do. He really is an embarrassment to his folks"

At the time, I considered this my one hard piece of evidence that Frank Walton is a real person. If this was him, it would seem he has some problems, though I'd have to admit he's put on a hell of a hoax.

I think that Corey was the real guy, the one Frank used as a name.

Hallq said...

Can you point me to an example of this name being used where it is apparently Frank doing the typing?

Anonymous said...

This is going to sound farfetched but I think that Frank Walton is also Beast Rabban. If you look throughout Walton's blog he leaves comments in them EVERY SINGLE TIME! And he doesn't have a blogger profile! That's way suspicious. You can say their writing style is different, but if you think about it, all he has to do is go to microsoft word and change a few sentences here and there. Rabban is a sock puppet.

Anonymous said...

If you look through his blog, (yeah I know) he uses the name alot. He referred to him early as DR Corey Washington then started using him to bolster his posts. He used to use Tino Huggins as well. Now he's got Daddy Cool.

Corey Washington said...

I'm the real Corey, and yes, Frank is mentally challenged. He works at the car wash now I think. I heard somebody in the neighborhood mention it. I haven't seen him myself though.

Moderation... I must say, I've lost my respect for you. You've become a little dictator, eh?

Frank Walton's tactic is to harass us until we go into comment moderation mode. What an ass!

Just saw this, and while I know almost nothing about Frank Walton I can assure you that Beast Rabban and he are NOT the same person. Hope this clarifies.

Frank thinks that I'm Ted Bell. I think that Frankie Boy is a taco short of a combo plate.

If all Christians were like Frank, Jesus would have nailed himself to the cross...
