There really isn't much 'evidence' that OSA did the 'deadbeat
dad' site; something that you would usually rail against had
anyone but you made the claim 'What OSA is trying to do'.
In fact, the site could be from one of your buddies, in
retaliation for the victim's patently absurd chutzpah in
defending (however robotically) Gerry, or;
It could have been from one of Gerry's *own* more byzantine
supporters, eager to sway public opinion to Gerry by pilloring a
generally well liked, even when nuts 'martyr'.
It could have been OSA.
Admittedly, option 3 seems fairly likely, since the desire to
pour some gasoline on the fire is the kind of 'clever' thing
But still. It's not evidence, and I hope to god Diane doesn't
see you claiming it is.
