Props to Munkel for making a nice update on Doug "but I'm applying for jobs teaching high school [so I can find new teenage girls] and if one was to google my name, this is one of the first sites [other than that link to the sex offender website] to come up" Robeson.

She added:

Recently, Doug has fallen on hard times after Kelli engaged in a study abroad program in Italy, where she has allegedly been observed fucking Italian men who drive Vespas. Depressed, Doug removed himself from the UF College Bowl program and now spends his days searching for career opportunities in public education despite concerns that googling his name will yield results that reference his former sex life.

Heh. He then decided to send myself, Travis, another member our team who is known to cave to Doug-pressure, and the Union Representative the link and demanded that we take it down. In that letter, he threatened to sue us for libel and defamation of his character, since he was trying to get the aformentioned job and if you google his name, qbwiki apparently comes up (though it really only came up through Kelli Wood's site, which is now gone as well).

I was going to point out that the information posted would have to be proven as untrue to be libel, and as far as anyone in our organization knows it isn't (or, additionally, that the site says that it's satirical and over the top), but I don't like interacting with Doug when I can help it. So he was told to be a big boy and edit the site himself.

This is not really new with Doug--- when the last generation of UF quizbowlers tried to get rid of him, they had to keep him around after he threatened to sue them for age discrimination, which was equally as ludicrous, as Trash dinosaur Jeff Zahnen has always been older that Doug.

This is the greatest post in the history of the forum and I thank you wholeheartedly for it.

And by comes up, it's the second highest page.

Also your post was great. Please share more stories!

Again, bless you. Also, did you mean that Doug is older than Jeff Zahnen? Does that make him like 27?

FWIW, that was loosely based on this article.
