Woah, that Adam Purple article is essential reading and should be added as a link to every article posted praising that animal. Very sad for those poor girls that he destroyed.

Reading the Adam Purple story confirms why I always question the annointed heroes. Dig a little bit, and you never know what you're going to find out about these people who clearly want attention but never reveal their true selves.
