Yeah, to be honest we rarely bother with that blog, but every now and then an interesting titbit gets thrown our way…in this case about the author of DDH.
When we do think about the site, it’s mostly to smile patronisingly at its author’s bizarre leaps of…well, you can’t really call them ‘logic’, can you? Essentially, according to DDH, pretty much everyone in the known universe, and a few entities beyond it, are RD.
Yeah, sure. Whatever you say.
For some time, we’d been operating on the assumption that the place was run by Jim McMenamin’s lovely wife Helen. We’d received a tip from one of Charlotte Alton Ward’s acolytes, and it seemed to check out.
However, it seems we were mistaken: turns out that the real mastermind is none other than ‘Kris DaCosta’, aka Kris Costa, aka the Wig that Walks.
Yep, that cheap’n’cheerful blue mop, bottom row, is…well, actually she’s a model from China, where that interesting hairpiece is manufactured and sold. But the wig is Kris’s online avatar: apparently s/he has a hankering to resemble Cousin Itt.
Here’s where Cousin It….that is, Kris reveals all:
Set aside for a moment wacky Kane Slater’s idea that a bunch of smart people would be even remotely interested in helping ‘expose and destroy the Hampstead cannibals’, or that his brilliant plan is to set Abrella up for a live Q&A, moderated by none other than, well, Kane (we put the odds of them participating in something Abe cannot directly control at approximately 1,000,000:1).
There’s Cousin Itt, right in the middle, claiming responsibility for DDH.
Funny, though. S/he states that this involved ‘100’s if not a 1000 hours of research’ (sic). And yet if you check out DDH itself, there are approximately 30 posts, the vast majority of which are factually wrong. A lot of time and effort to produce something this dismal:
My, my, would you look at this! S/he’s actually taken a screenshot from our blog. Perhaps that crack about the cheap wig hit home. And we definitely detect a bit of resentment about our suggestion that people might want to report his/her fake Facebook profile.
We were interested to note that while Kris was once a devoted commentator on the ex-Hamster Research blog, often earning a pat on the head and a ‘good dog’ from Charlotte, about a month ago we found evidence of a schism between Kris and Charlotte Alton Ward. Not to worry, Kris—eventually everyone falls out with Charlotte. It’s kind of her thing.
So there you have it: another Hoaxtead pusher to join the ever-diminishing crowd.
