Yes, disingenuous, Thadeaus, but still open and not hiding. Deadfish thinks we're ridiculous and is having fun abusing us. Yes it is provoking. But it hasn't undermined OWS at all. So as long as the Deadfish blog is openly hostile and there to see, I still recommend just directing people to the blog so we all know what's up.

themselves off as being part of this movement while simultaneously
mocking and deriding us elsewhere.

I am not advocating removing anyone from the list for having
right-wing politics but for lying about who they are.
