Michael Crook, the blogger infamous for his hate sites, recently sent Valleywag a fake copyright-infringement takedown notice as part of Crook's licentious spree against bloggers. The whole episode arose from Crook's dubious sting operation, in which the bastard — sorry, that could be construed as libelous, I meant "the asshole" — posed as a 19-year-old girl on Craigslist and posted photos and personal information from his respondents.

And this weekend, he IMed the Valleywag tip line, "heyvalleywag" on AIM.

Michael Crook: Well, look who it is


Valleywag: hey
» who's this?
» Oh, you.

Crook: yes, ME
» you're a bitter person, you know that?


Wag: heehee
[boring part redacted]
» it's sunday
» so come back during the week

Crook: how about you kiss my fucking ass
» :)

Earlier: Please please can you send us a DMCA take-down notice too? [Valleywag]
