As many of our readers know, this blog has been under constant attack for the past two weeks.
False complaints have been lodged against us, and we appreciate your patience as we continue to deal with them.
- This blog is not spam. It is not a splog. We wrote it to inform the public, not to make money (and we have made $0).
- This blog has not been hacked. A former editor thought that she owned the blog, for reasons we still do not fully understand. (See her claims here.)
- This blog does not mislead readers into thinking we are Jeromie Williams. We are not Jeromie Williams. We never claimed to be. (See his claims here.)
- This blog does not threaten anyone or incite violence against anyone. Indeed, the purpose of the blog is to condemn this behaviour! (See Jeromie Williams’ and Cayr Ariel Wulff’s claims here, Kim Johnston’s claims here.)
- This blog does not contain illegally recorded or edited conversations. The recordings are fully legal, and posted with the permission of Operation Sled Dogs (OSD) officials. (See Jeromie’s claims here.)
- This blog is not defamatory or libelous. Public comment and criticism does not constitute defamation. (See Jeromie Williams’ and Cayr Ariel Wulff’s claims here, Kim Johnston’s claims here.)
- We are not stalking anyone. Public comment and criticism does not constitute stalking, either. (See Jeromie Williams’ and Cayr Ariel Wulff’s claims here.)
- We are not harassing or terrorizing anyone. Public comment and criticism does not constitute harassment or terrorism, either. (See Jeromie Williams’ and Cayr Ariel Wulff’s claims here.)
- We have never infringed copyright. DMCA takedown demands aside, under 17 USC § 107, fair use of copyrighted work for the purposes of criticism, comment, or news reporting, is not an infringement of copyright.
“I have also been victimized on the Jeromiewilliamsisafraud.wordpress.com blog. I became a target after I saw a quote from the blog in a public forum and I commented that I thought dedicating a blog to destroying someone’s life was creepy, and that the person who was doing most of the writing must be stalking Mr. Williams … I have reported this to WordPress on numerous occasions, and WordPress has done nothing … I would think that WordPress would want to report the writers of the blog to the proper authorities.”
A volunteer rightly dismissed her as a “drama llama”:
“We are not allowed to post or participate in blog promotion or drama llama discussion threads on this forum … What part of this picture do you not get? WordPress.com is not your Big Brother.”
We have to admit the resemblance is uncanny…
