Me: "See, Richard, you can't compare your situation and Meaghan's because there are significant differences, which I will now proceed to outline in rigorous and excruciating detail."
Richard: "Is not!"
Good luck, Paladiea. When you get an overwhelming urge to talk to the grownups again, well, you know where to find us.
AFTERSNARK: It is truly breathtaking how quickly the lies begin over at LFR. Consider the first sentence of the first comment on that article, by LFR contributor Gamil Gharbi:
I like how they call you a fascist for legally regestering [sic] a website.
First, "they"? "They?" And who would these "they" be? A quick perusal of my blog post in question shows precisely one person who used that expression:
Yeabbut, Richard knows that if he's dealing with someone completely pseudonymous, there's no real legal recourse...none that's been established with cyber-stalking and online harrassment laws, as far as I know, or nothing that the police will take all that seriously, unless there's evidence that Richard does in fact know the identities of the people he's harrassing (which might have been obtained illegally).
What Richard *does* hope for is that you eventually out yourself, so you can no longer have the advantages pseudonymity provides, thus circumscribing your freedom of expression. Richard's a true fascist, in every sense of the word...
So, there is no general "they," is there? Rather, there is simply a "he." But it gets better.
If you read Ti-Guy's comment, he is clearly not making the accusation in the context of merely registering a domain name as Gharbi claims, is he? Oh, no, Ti-Guy is clearly discussing this in a larger context, which makes Gharbi a pathetic, lying little fuckwad. Kind of like Richard, which I'm sure is why they get along so well.
I feel sorry for you, Paladiea. The longer this goes on, the less reputation you're going to have left to preserve. I tried to warn you.
