Solving My Racist Sexist Homophobic Dipshit Problem

Scalzi is an author I'm just getting into, I like him, and I like his solution here, and thought I'd give him a shout out

As has been detailed recently, thereís a Racist Sexist Homophobic Dipshit out there on the InterWeebs who likes to use my name to whip up his gibbering followers, who then often come over here to troll the comments. Whether I ignore him or not doesnít matter, so fine. I might as well get something productive out of it.
Hereís what Iím going to do: From now until the end of 2013 (and backdating to January 1st) when the Racist Sexist Homophobic Dipshit in question posts an entry on his site in which he uses my name (or one of his adorable nicknames for me), Iím going to put $5 into a pot. At the end of the year, Iím going to tally it up. All the money, up to $1,000, will be donated equally to the following organizations:
*RAINN
*Emilyís List
*Human Rights Campaign
*NAACP
Now, what this means is that, since I donít want to have to read the Racist Sexist Homophobic Dipshitís site, Iíll need someone to monitor the dudeís site, and keep a spreadsheet for me. So Iím calling for volunteers. I will compensate you with signed first editions of The Human Division and The Mallet of Loving Correction when they come out, plus Iíll donate $250 in your name to go into the pot (on top of the up to $1,000 I will donate) to be disbursed to the organizations above. Email me with your interest.

You can read about what's been happening if you like, but what an elegant solution, yes?
