The true identity of Franc Hoggle and Felch Grogan is: Victor Ivanoff

There was quite a discussion a while back on whether or not the identify of an internet troll known as Franc Hoggle should be revealed. It was generally thought that his identity should be revealed, but it wasn’t because no one wanted to sully their own hands over such an insignificant dit. However, PZ Myers as Pharyngula has decided to tell everyone that Franc Hoggle is Victor Ivanoff, which about fifty of us have known for weeks (because a “friend of his,” disgusted with his behavior, put it around a while back).

Apparently Ivanoff is easy to spot in a crowd because he smells very bad. Seriously, I am not making that up. Anyway, he made sufficiently threatening noises in PZ’s direction that PZ felt outing him now was the best thing to do. I am very disappointed with this turn of events because I wanted to be the one to reveal his identity. I’m sure many others feel the same way. Oh well.

    How the mighty has fallen. Is he still part of Atheist Nexus?

  2. Greg Laden says:

    I assume the atheist and skeptics community will now reject any association with him.

    Franc has fallen? He has a terrific blog and he is much loved all around the world…and the numbers are growing. If you have uncovered his true identity I don’t think it matters much. I will be lobbying for him to be an invited guest or speaker at the next Global Athiest Convention in Melbourne (2014).

      Yeah, good luck with that. I’m sure the GAC are just dying to promote that professional troll.

      Much loved around the world? Hilarious.
