Walt, military people say “you only get flak when you’re OVER TARGET.” Keep fighting! We’ve “got your six.”

Last night, someone messaged me claiming to be Tim Robbins writing from his private Twitter account (@TimRobishere, which appeared legitimate as the start date was 2009, and the account has around 3,500 followers). This wasn't entirely far-fetched because Tim Robbins (@TimRobbins1) follows me on Twitter, and we have exchanged private messages. I asked the imposter to paste in the last message I had sent him on his other account (as well as an earlier message Tim had sent me), and he acted like it was going to be too hard because there are thousands of messages there and it's managed by The Actors' Gang. I then said I would send a new message, and he could respond at both accounts to verify it was him. That shut him up. Real Tim Robbins informed me it wasn't him, so I reported it as an impersonation account. Hope he doesn't trick people into giving him sensitive information as the first thing he asked me is where I'm located.

On a lighter note, Jessica Rose is referring to you as Walnut. Don't know if she thinks your full name is Chester M. Walnut, but it may well be 😂

They're doing it on all of our stacks. Mine happened about 12 hours ago.

It's happening because Substack comments are where real debate can happen like it did before most news sites shut their comments down and Twitter is inferior because of the character limits.

Steve Kirsch had major bot issues a couple weeks ago in his substack which is massive.

It wasn't me Walter but good to know how to spell your last name correctly - I have been wrong all along. Brain typo corrector at fault - automatic spell check in action.

Well if he doesn't type in caps when he gets excited, then we will know for sure.

:)

Good point that others made, its' a sign that you are worthy of pulling away some of your followers.

Stay sharp bro.

Will be on the look out - but easy to spot l would think NO-ONE dear Walter could possibly produce content like yourself and for which we are forever grateful!

ALL SUBSTACK USERS: Here's a simple security fix to prevent getting signed-up for subscriptions without your knowledge. Go to your SETTINGS, scroll down to the very bottom to ADVANCED SETTINGS, and make sure REQUIRE VERIFICATION TO RECEIVE EMAILS is set to ON. I'm pretty sure this will secure your account from receiving spam. Please reply if this helps...

It sounds like a pro-vax fanatic or public health bureaucrat. A lot of them are compulsive and would think they are ethically justified. It's sublimated hostility and correlated with sadism. It would be someone a lot like Bryan Kohberger, the Idaho murders suspect and ethical vegan.

Steve Kirsch and JD Rucker also had trouble with trolls the last couple of days. Someone impersonating them in the comment section would answer a comment with a response and asking them to text to a number for more info.
