Five months ago in my role as armchair investigative reporter I looked at the seamy underbelly of St. Blogs and turned up many scandalous facts in this post.
This exposure has not stopped the scandalous activity in this parish, I now turn my attention to blog coups. Blog coups is a phenomenon where group blogs get dominated by one member.
The blog Christus Victor lists four people as members of this group blog, but only Christine seems to now post. Was their a midnight coup and why have we never heard form the other posters again. They did not start new blogs and seemed to have disappeared. Looking though the archives I determined their disappearance happened April.
Another blog Whys Guys has Mark a Catholic and Rich an atheist two physics students at Cornell. Soon after launching the blog Rich stopped posting. Now their seems to be a new poster a Catholic named Joseph.
In the early days of Catholic Light, brothers Steve and John Schultz both posted on this site. Steve disappeared and was later replaced by a motley crew of other Catholic bloggers.
Now I am sure that they would want us to believe that the other posters had other time commitments or tired of blogging, but is that the truth? supposedly Steve Shultz has gone on to the seminary, but is that the real story. Has anybody actually seen any of these bloggers lately.
Now there are a couple possible scenarios and I will look first at Christus Victor. This blog was a mixture Protestant/Catholic blog and I wonder if there just might have been one two many Martin Luther jokes or reformation celebrations and Christine in a fit of rage done them in during a heated battle. I am also suspicion of her name. Wasn’t Christine the name of the demonic infused car in a Stephen King novel? Coincidence? I wonder.
You can also imagine the heated discussions with those two students at Whys Guys about the existence of God. Now possibly this coup involved murder but I also wonder if Rich really ever truly existed. Possibly Mark has a split personality and in temptations of faith battles his atheistic personality. Mark seems to have won out for now but he bears watching. Now with the addition of Joseph we will just have to wait and see if he a real person separate from Mark. I imagine he added another person just to keep the pluralistic Guys for Wise Guys.
Now there have been multi-person coup at HMS Blog before when Greg Popcak was out of town. In reality a coup has already taken place with Kevin Miller who out posts everyone else a 100 to 1.
So if any of you missing bloggers are still alive I would appreciate you to email me a picture of yourself with todays newspaper. Please no crappy sounding audio tapes like Bin Laden’s.
