When I was writing my numerous articles about the activities of Sterling Void earlier this year, I did some pretty meticulous research. For example, I discovered he has at least 13 different email addresses. I suppose all that crack must make it hard to remember his passwords – though it’s a clever tactic to avoid scrutiny catching up with you, isn’t it?

Mr Void (or Mr Pelt, as he now wishes to be known) has emerged from the dust. He has created a brand new Facebook account. At the time of writing, I have not received a friend request from him, but it’ll probably only be a matter of time.

Much to my surprise, it appears he has acknowledged, albeit in a very rudimentary manner, the fact that the Sterling Void name now is essentially in the mud. In one message posted today, he says “Sterling Void is dead”. In another, he admits “I did some bad things to people” before going on to claim it’s because his mother died earlier this year.

So you’ve been essentially a duplicitous arsehole for the past 32 odd years because your mother died in September of this year?

If that’s your attempt at an apology, Mr Pelt, you’re going to have to do a lot better than that…
