That Jim's "antecedent character" was ZEV or that he was described as such?
The latter doesn't need believed but merely looked up. It was by Brooks who has to our collective loss unfortunately been quiet for some while here. His full reply to a previous typically self indulgent ZEV post:
"Zev, this is so moving. One of the most morally repulsive, elite-serving, neoliberal sock-puppets the western corporate death-system has ever vomited up helped your mom play Chopin! The tears fall on my keyboard as I write. It proves there really is a moral order in the universe. For all of you (for shame!) who thought that Zev was a vulgar, semi-literate and infantile troll, a stubborn toenail fungus on the board with no effective antidote, I hope this deeply moving post about his mom, music and Saint Maggie, puts such cynical thoughts to bed forever."
