Unreal

An interesting followup to yesterday’s Moon in the Window – a post on my work being plagiarized:

Dear Old Dad shared the post with the Facebook clawhammer banjo group. It was immediately met with accusations of unsubstantiated accusations – which was interesting because I went out of my way not to throw names around. Then came demands that we name the people involved. Then my father was banned from the group.

It is not a big deal. The group was increasingly turning into an advertising platform for its delusional moderator. What bothers me is watching my father take yet another public beating simply for being my dad.

How can such a fun and simple folk instrument attract such horrible people?
