We, along with many of you, have been monitoring the curious case surrounding one of the most prominent Paladin bloggers, Ferarro. We originally did a 15 Minutes of Fame with Ferarro
on May 26th. The article was about her life as a blogger, a paladin, and a game tester for Blizzard.
After the article was written, a few things happened.
First, Jagoex posted a story
on Ferarro's use of pictures from the website TechDarling. Ferarro was claiming she was the person pictured, when in fact she wasn't. Sarah Townsend, the author of TechDarling
, has stated she doesn't know who Ferarro is.
Secondly, Ferraro's blog, Paladin Schmaladin
, suddenly switched over to privacy mode blocking anyone from reading it who didn't have an invitation directly from Ferraro. Her Twitter account had the message "Stalkers are cool," and was then locked until it was deleted completely a day later. Her WoW
character disappeared via a likely server transfer, and her contributions at RetPaladin.com
were removed completely. Update
: After this article was posted, Ferarro has once again made her blog, and thus her statement, private. However you can view a google cache of the page
This began raising many eyebrows and brought on a lot of speculation. All of which ended today when she posted claiming herself as multiple persons
, which after investigation is now brought into question as well.
