There has recently been a stepping up of the rhetoric of some people and sites; I tend to look beyond what appears to be “obvious” into the “why”. The “why” is always harder to find. However, I suggest instead of having the common reaction of “fight or flight”, each person who finds themselves in this predicament take a deep breath, neither fight nor flight and try to look beyond the surface to what might be the real hidden agenda.
There is a legal term called “Chilling Effect”, which is a term in United States law that describes a situation where speech or conduct is suppressed or limited by fear of penalization at the hands of an individual or group. For example, the threat of a costly and lengthy lawsuit might prompt self-censorship and have a “chilling effect” on free speech.
If I go by this, then I get beyond the “fight or flight” and begin to look at something far more potentially sinister and chilling. Thus the question becomes “who and why now”?
Way back eons ago in internet time when this first chilling effect occurred, I did try to advocate checking facts out for yourself, don’t just buy into what you are told. I believe that paranoia and fear are the greatest tools of bullies, and those adept at “the chilling effect”. As many others before me and after me will say, “Truth is the absolute defense”. It takes a bit for each one of us to search and find the truth, it is much easier to buy into someone else’s truth, fears, paranoia, threats, etc. For me personally I have always chosen when I question something to research and find the truth. My truth might not be the absolute truth, but it is enough for me to then move on in life.
Thus back to the chilling effect, and who and why now? We have the Inquest coming up, what happens to these swarms of a small group of people that feel such anger and hate when Howard K. Stern is found once again to not have had anything to do with a very sad and accidental death? If I ever feel a tad down about rumors and hate filled posts about me, I think about Howard K. Stern, Larry Birkhead, and about their families and the hell they have lived through in the past year. It is a quick reality check of what is written about me on the internet although repugnant, it is so small compared to what these two men and their families have lived with for everyday the last year. Therefore, what happens to the people who lives are caught up in hate, bigotry, paranoia and controlling others with these tactics? Where does this small group go after this horrible sad saga comes to an end next week? As they readily say, they move on to California, with the same tactics they have attempted to use in Florida and the Bahamas. I guess they think practice makes perfect, however it they do one too many calling campaigns, one too many email or snail mail campaigns, what happens then. I have it from a good source that what happens is that they are considered stupid kindergarten stalkers and bullies, and the FBI, DOJ, and Secret Service will put them in the whacko call file. In this day and time with real threats against Americans in so many areas from threats of violence, to inciting hate crimes, to domestic violence there is so much more out there to worry about then an orchestrated online “war”.
Some of you have written me about I should tell my story, the real story, and be done with it. I disagree, first I did in April 2007, the first of about now three recycles of the same old stuff, once was enough of being very honest about who I am. However now to do it again and again and again, each time this comes up is equivalent to getting in the sand box with the bullies. Once you do that, you have given them what they want, ATTENTION, and bullies feed off of attention even bad attention.
I do have to admit of all of the things that are written about me the most nauseating and alarming one is that “I exploit children, am involved in child pornography, and/or child BDSM”, first I did not know there was child BDSM, but I guess in child exploitation that might be possible. I have been reported and checked out, and there is no truth what so ever to these accusations. Therefore, once again I ask why this is recycled after being disproved many months ago. To say someone is exploiting a child goes right to our very primal instinct of survival. It insults and inflames a “reasonable person” using “common sense”, to the point of inflaming that person to want to take action including but not limited to inciting hate/loathing/avoidance of the person that is the target of this type of false known statement. In the worse case scenario, these statements can incite someone to commit a crime of assault. Another example of this is saying someone suffers from a disease that society fears, as in; the 1980’s the stating that a person had HIV. I don’t think there is one of us out there that do not feel very deeply about child exploitation so although it is not true, and has been investigated and proven as not true, why bring it up yet again almost a year later? In my opinion, it is to play on the fear, anger, and paranoia of “any normal person’s common sense”. To try to invoke create loathsome and hatred of another, the common person feels that they have to make a stand. Could I sue someone for the allegations that continue, of course I could. It is called “Malicious Falsehood” and is similar to defamation, but proof of damage is not necessary, as with defamation — defendants must only prove the statement was false and published maliciously. However the “fronts” (sites used) for this, those people do not have any money to go after, and I don’t want their e-book business. So you live with it, you feel ill that anyone would do this, in fact I feel to make that accusation in and of itself is exploiting children. Parents and the average person, it is an assault on all of us because of the deep inner feelings it causes. It is of course designed by its very nature to cause these feelings.
With all of that said we go back to who and why now again? I feel that is a complicated question and probably a complicated answer of the agenda that causes this to be spewed on hate sites. However, moving past this and wondering why those who do these things are the first to holler foul for much less gives us some insight to the agenda.
Mr. Wood has stated that Mr. O’Quinn uses the theory of 1,000 cuts to bring his target down, which resulted in the bankruptcy of Dow Corning in one case. So why would a small out of the way legal discussion blog, be targeted by people who allegedly get emails to “stay on topic and/or message”, and go out to spew this type of slime to keep the focus on anyone or anything but what is really going on if it is not favorable to them.
Then we have the posts and emails sent to me about I am the one that will “prove and get jurisdiction in Texas”, frankly I have no idea what that is about. When I responded saying that, then in what seemed to me to be cryptic language, by what appears to be one of the Wilma followers, I was told to read Howard K. Stern’s deposition from January 4. Virgie Arthur’s team appears not to have wanted it filed in her response, thus I had to wait until it became public in Howard K. Stern’s response filed with the court on January 18. Frankly overall it was one of the most boring depositions I have read, so then I got a message to look at the part on “paid bloggers”. What first caught my attention was someone went to the trouble to create a false “Houston Chronicle article” back in April 2007 claiming that Howard K. Stern had a PR firm with paid bloggers. I had that sent to me by someone and I have to admit on first reading it does look legitimate. My next question, wonder who was talented enough to put that together? Then moving on was something about a chat room and threats, have no idea where that chat room is or what threats. Then I did got to part about paid bloggers, Howard K. Stern said nope none, then to volunteer bloggers, Howard K. Stern said nope, none. So we get into screen monikers, and the only one of those three I recognize was “Sweet Havana” from Canada. I had never seen the monikers of “My Spirit Rocks or Marilyn Cummings”. The depositions seems to then implies that some type of ongoing conspiracy to slander Virgie was being “directed into Texas” by Howard K. Stern. Are they trying to say, the old attorney in Houston that Anna Nicole Smith had for the probate hearings with the Marshall family part of this? That is a tad far out there, and I don’t buy that giant leap and don’t know the lawyer so that could not be me. Then we have Bonnie Stern, did Howard’s sister ever blogged, nope, not that I know of but then I don’t know “everything” and I would guess neither does anyone else. Hasn’t every rock possible been turned over on all of the Stern family and they come up to be a fairly well respected family who raised their children with good personal ethics? Finally, we have a question allowed about had Bonnie ever been to Texas to investigate for her brother, from the deposition it looks like Virgie Arthur’s lawyer decided to skip on that question and go to Bonnie Stern defaming Virgie Arthur. Thus in the end I have no understanding about how a blog that supplies and keeps archived the legal documents from ALL sides in all of these cases, could be a “jurisdictional link”. If you follow that then that could put all of these cases in every state where anyone has written about it. Thus after spending hours trying to follow cryptic messages of connect the dots, I am left still saying, HUH?
So that brings us back to the latest personal attack, and my over all question, why the attempt at the Chilling Effort, by who, and why me? Your guess is as good as mine. If I am the biggest thing for these people to target these days, then in my opinion, they are beginning to realize they are going to strike out in the Bahamas next week and probably in California over the next weeks and/or months. In fact the medical board on last check had recommended and renewed both doctors license after the search warrants. Maybe we should thank all of these people organizing all of these phone calls and email/snail mail campaigns. What do you think?
One last note, one of the old moderators sent me the “COMPLETE” chat log that has been displayed on another site. When you read the whole chat log, not the edited version, it presents a totally different picture of things. So why not put the whole chat log instead of the edited version, another good question in my opinion.
On a personal note, if any of you have any questions about who I am and what I stand for on children’s rights, email me, my email address is all over this site.
Once again, I would strongly suggest your read Jane Devin’s article on blog wars and the Wild West, like her I intend to move on in 2008 and leave behind the TRASH from 2007.
Ok tomorrow before the Inquest on Monday I am going to try to get Chapter 13 completed in the debunking.
