Bedlam boys are bonny

I've noticed that nobody else has posted about this, so I thought I'd bring it to the comm's attention: The Msscribe Story: An Unauthorized Fandom Biography by "Charlotte Lennox."

Aside from some great general history of the Harry Potter fandom, the "biography" also charts the actions of constantine/delawarean/delewarean from 2001 forward, with some rather dramatic--and often well-documented--claims about wank, sockpuppets and fen behaving badly. It's created a massive splash in the fandom, especially because so many BNFs in multiple sectors are mixed up in it, and the final denoument is still (at the time of this posting) to come.

I'm the one who made the post about broad fandom factors contributing to wank--this is almost like a case study of a single individual who apparently brought a lot of spooge to the yard. Even people outside the fandom might find this interesting, if only in the trainwreck sort of way.
