Late Friday night I posted my analysis of Crystal Cox's vengeful and freakish assault on Marc Randazza. I discussed how her "oh look I registered a domain in your name, I need money, do you need reputation services" closely resembled a seemingly extortionate email she sent to a previous target of her wrath. I also pointed out the main thing you need to know to evaluate what Crystal Cox is: when she gets mad at you, she'll buy a domain in the name of your three-year-old child as part of an attack on you.
In that post, I argued that the best private response to the sort of gibbering evil Crystal Cox offers is more speech, not litigation. Marc Randazza — whose own three-year-old daughter is a target here — is taking the more-speech road. It works. For example, today David Carr at the New York Times posted a piece about Cox and her behavior, revealing that after his critical piece about her last year she launched a domain attacking him.
Some evidence suggests that this weekend Cox bought up a bunch of new domains. No doubt she'll launch new vile attacks on her growing number of critics. I registered domains in the names of my children, but who knows, maybe she found variations on my name, or my business, or my children's names that I did not anticipate (or could not reasonably afford to buy). That's what she is. That's what she does. Treat her accordingly.
Edited to add: looks like Forbes gets her, too. Note that she also started sites attacking the Forbes reporter based on his prior article on her.
