Meet CU Boulder's "Bobok"--Benjamin Whitmer!

Picture credit

"Depravity in such a place, depravity of the last aspirations, depravity of sodden and rotten corpses - and not even sparing the last moments of consciousness! Those moments have been granted, vouchsafed to them, and ... and, worst of all, in such a place!"--the narrator of Fyodor Dostoyevsky's short story "Bobok"
Fyodor Dostoyevsky's surreal short story "Bobkok" ("Little Bean") is about an unstable, failed writer who visits a cemetery and "hears" the voices of recently buried people talking to each other.
Although these people have already died, it seems that they might have a brief time even after death to consider their souls; but the deceased are full of stupidity and pettiness even beyond the grave. They have no thought at all for their souls, even though they have just died!
When I read Benjamin Whitmer's nasty blog Tryworks, the posters remind me of the voices that Dostoyevsky's narrator "hears" from beyond the grave.
Whitmer has now been exposed as the nasty poster known as "Moredock" on the Tryworks. But he still is nasty. He isn't a bit ashamed to be the toadie for a con-man like Ward Churchill. Whitmer is still croaking, "bobok, bobok, bobok."
As the narrator of "Bobok" remarks, "To begin with the smell."
