I am in the middle of re-reading Sinclair Lewis’s It Can’t Happen Here.
If you have never had the pleasure of reading this book, you’re in luck. It’s in the public domain and available online here.
To give you a brief story line, just in case you’ve never read it, and taking care not to spoil the book for you, this quote is from a book written by a politician who is running for president of the United States (supposedly – the book, of course, is fiction). You know how everyone who runs for president has to write a book first? Well, this fictional character did.
I am getting some messages from folks who are slightly exasperated with the ping-pong switch of subject matter here, so I want to explain what is going on. I’ve done this in comments, but maybe I need a separate post so I can refer to it as needed.
I have had three blogs going simultaneously.
To say that this is difficult to keep up with is an understatement. Even though people have trouble believing it, I don’t do this full time. I do lots of things and some of those other things need my attention.
In addition, each of those blogs costs money. Three blogs equal three times the cost of one blog. We’re talking upwards of $1000 annually. [In addition to these, I also own and manage two other websites and multiple domain names and have part-interest in a third which desperately needs to be redone. My website-related bills are significant.]
So I decided to consolidate all three blogs. I have been working on this for months. One of them has reached the end of its contract and is gone. The other one is good until sometime in September, I think. I’ve been moving those articles over here to create an archive.
The problem is that even if I back-date those pieces, when I publish them, if you are set up to be notified, you’ll get a notification. I can’t help that. It is just the way WordPress works.
The current flood of articles about Cathy Harris date back about three years. There really are people who care about this and who do not want this material to disappear. I considered simply asking those who want the Romancing material to remain to pay for it, but quickly nixed that idea. I am allergic to having other people pay for my blogs. A small group of people did finance this blog in the beginning, but that only covered the first year or so and I am on my own now and will remain that way.
I think I’ve stated the reason for that before but it bears repeating. If other people pay the bills, then other people get to tell me what to write. Even if they don’t mean to do that, they can still influence me and I don’t want that. I do this on my own or not at all.
There will be another flood soon, about Camille Lewis.
There will be one after that about Linda Fossen.
And there will be a final one I call “Other” on the website.
Then they will all be archived and the only time any of them will be mentioned is if something occurs that needs to be updated.
I have not gotten any sort of legal notification from the Nauglers. I don’t expect to, as I haven’t done anything illegal and don’t intend to do so in the future. I am not intimidated by them in the slightest.
So, if the Romancing stuff does not interest you, ignore it. It’s clearly tagged. I’m not actually writing any of it now. I wrote it years ago. All I’m doing is moving it, updating the links and creating a menu. I am on a time line, though, and need to get this done before the website goes dark.
I do Naugler-related stuff when there is something to say. When it’s quiet, I’m quiet.
And I do articles about totally unrelated things whenever I get inspired to do it.
Comments about all this are fine. I know some people are okay with it all, some people have fallen down the Romancing rabbit hole, and others couldn’t be more bored. Just bear with me. I will get it all sorted out but I can’t devote 12 hours a day to it.
And so was I. The Wizard of Boz spoke out. Thank you, Boz Tchividjian.
As a brief response to the naysayers, who insist that no way in the world did Boz Tchividjian write an email to Leah Hayes (the clear implication is “of all people”) denying that Beth James was Charissa, here is the header from the pertinent email.
Obviously, this is teeny tiny pretty much unreadable print, but I wanted to include it so you can see that Leah’s email client didn’t want to wrap the text – and she didn’t know how to force it to do that.
Here is an enlarged shot, and you can see that doing that forced the creation of a scroll bar due to the refusal of the damn program to wrap.
And I realize that this creates a situation where you can’t read it all.
So, here’s the whole header, cut and pasted into Word so it’s clear and complete. I’ve blacked out Leah’s email address, but highlighted the information that is meaningful (at least from the little I know about headers.)
For those who don’t know, each email sent has some code (like that above) which is something like the tracking information on a Fed Ex package. It tells when the message was sent, where from, who from, and tracks it as it traverses the internet to arrive in the recipient’s inbox.
It is possible to fake headers. Doing so is called “spoofing.” And in those two sentences, you have read all that I know about spoofing. I have not a single clue how to do it. Nor does Leah. We, in fact, had to resort to Google to even figure out how to access a header in the first place.
Where does this leave us?
It leaves us here. We have shown you the statement from Boz, which was sent via email to Leah Hayes and then he gave her permission to let me have a copy.
The fact that the Queen and her Court don’t think Boz releases statements that way doesn’t change anything at all.
In fact, it raises a huge question: They have been desperate to see me put in jail now for months. I am not exaggerating even slightly. They have tried their best, down to inventing a fake profile of a fake attorney to repeatedly threaten me and others. They declared repeatedly and with great confidence that we on The List had all received cease and desist letters, presumably from Jeff Anderson, who supposedly took Cathy’s “case” for no money or something like that.
Now is their chance.
If Leah, or I, or both of us are faking emails from a former prosecutor, and then spoofing the header, and if they are all besty buddies with The Wizard, why don’t they just call him? Surely he would want to know. Surely he would fire off one of those real cease and desist letters, telling me to stop it right now.
When I showed that Camille Lewis is, in fact, William Peck, and that she used this fake identity to mock Jocelyn Zichterman mercilessly, Camille does nothing at all. The William Peck Facebook page remains in place. It’s irrelevant to discuss whether or not Jocelyn was guilty of anything. What is important is that Camille uses fake identities to stalk people. And when I tried to contact Camille, early on, to express my very real and valid concerns that she uses stories and claims them as “scholarship” when they are nothing more than unsubstantiated internet rumors, she refused to talk to me.
So, I don’t exactly hold my breath waiting for one of them to have an “Aha!” moment and admit anything.
Any reasonable person can evaluate all this for themselves. And I only really care about reasonable people.
But, Dan, by all means, keep typing. When you get diarrhea of the keyboard, it’s like Christmas for me.
