So I finished up my morning real-life activities and settled down to do some online stuff and what do I see on the blog but this.
So I thought:
Well, for just a second.
Before I started laughing.
Then I did a few minutes of looking about.
First the email address.
LOL Santa Clarita, California. Mr. Hayes practices family, divorce, and bankruptcy law. I bet he’d be astonished to see his email address being used in an anonymous online threat.
Then the IP address.
Mr. Hayes is apparently in Frankfurt, Germany.
Or, using Occam’s Razor (go look that up, it’s your homework assignment for today), I’d say that somebody is being cute and using an IP proxy service. I’d also be willing to bet it’s not Donald A Hayes.
Face it, guys. You’re going to have to do actual work to feed yourselves. You’re not going to be able to sue me to get money.
Nice try, though.
From email we get this.
And the little attached message is this.
Here’s the deal, Jack, you idiot: I am making public commentary on someone else’s public statements.
You, in turn, can make public commentary on my public statements.
None of that is “harassment.”
Harassment, by definition, involves somebody actually coming to you (in person, or online, say, to your Facebook page or blog) and stalking you. I am not doing that. In fact, the person who has come here harassing me is you, Jack, to the point that I had to remove your comments. You’re visiting here, using a proxy IP address and impersonating an attorney in order to harass me. And now you’re harassing me by sending unwanted emails.
Nobody has to come here and read any of this. Not you. Not Joe. Not Nicole.
