“Hunters” Don’t Do So Well, Here: Good For The Goose, Good For The Gander [MAPs Need To Stand Up and Fight Back!]…


….

Date: August 09, 2018

I wrote something as a comment, for another post…which ties into the Mellisa fiasco…and, I decided to post it in this series…because it’s very relevant, to what happened…and explains a few things, deeper.

I’ve been victimized by multiple smear campaigns [including at least one, high profile one], at the hands of several different sociopaths, over my many years online…all for doing nothing more than being a BoyChat poster, and/or running a fully legal blog, where I am open about being a MAP.

I am exactly the wrong sort of person to attempt this sort of stunt with…because I am fed up with it…I understand the underhanded innerworkings of it…I understand the maliciousness an gross naivety of the people behind it…and I wont tolerate it, at all.

You try to grab onto me with your malicious intent…and you’re going to discover, that you’ve haplessly wandered into an angry force of nature…and I will chew you up, and spit you out…Don’t you ever doubt that…

I don’t suffer malicious idiots well, at all.

I do fight back.

I am…however…imminently fair and honest.

Comment:

It’s food for thought…

…I mean…what’s good for the goose, is good for the gander…right?

Though, the people fighting back may very well get prosecuted for “malicious communication” [and how’s that, for draconian “1984”?]…it is heartening, to see victims of these “hunters” fighting back.

Many of [these “hunters”] never thought the tables even could be turned on them…But, it’s fully within our power, to find out who they are…start looking into them…and make things known about them.

Most of us wont spread false “pedophile” allegations about these people, because we are too principled to spread a [presumed] lie.

…But, some will fight fire with fire.

…I’ve seen the tactics these sorts use, to attempt entrapping people…It is absolutely believable, that they ensnare people innocent of the charges…Hell…they’ll exploit your good nature and play upon your pity/empathy, just to identify and destroy you…

You are always in danger of false accusations, from these sorts.

I speak as someone who has never been in the cliché chat room setting, “looking for victims”…Some of these a-holes merely stumble across what you are legally doing, online…and then they attempt to construct an entrapment to lure you into…or they just pull accusations straight out of their own behind, and start publishing them on their website.

I speak from personal experience, with this…I can testify, that both have happened to me, entirely without any illegal intent or activity on my part.

Various sociopaths will simply proceed to do this…despite that they have absolutely nothing to base it on.

To them…it’s all about running a successful smear campaign…which they know, is the only thing they are engaged in.

This case kind of reminds me of Mellisa Z…who has utterly surged forward, with making baseless, serious allegations towards various people [including myself, and this blog]…

…But the moment I started standing up and fighting back…out comes the sobbing and the protests…

…Allegedly, in the face of Mellisa using her legal name, recording her own face and voice as she names and viciously smears people [which endangers and interferes with those people]…it’s supposedly “doxing” [and doing something “unspeakable” to] her, to do a little bit of “counter googling” on her, for the purpose of informing visitors to this blog, what is really going on with that sociopathic, nincompoop.

It’s like…she never comprehended, that someone [like myself] was going to find out who is loudly making false accusations [and threats] against them.

…What’s good for the goose, is good for the gander…

…I can be a “google sleuth”, too…It’s brain dead easy…[which is one of the reasons why I scoff at it so hard, when so many people heap accolades of praise upon Melissa, as if she were amazingly talented, for doing what countless people have been doing online for decades]…

…But, Ms. Z didn’t have the common sense, to conceal her own identity…before she decided to take up the practice, of malicious online smearing…and just as serious…issuing threats against individual people, and waging campaigns of harassment.

If nothing else…I’ve got enough information to take legal action, if ever necessary.

…And my public blogging about the whole nasty incident, was part of that documentation…I wanted it out in the public [from the start], so it would be public record [from beginning to conclusion]…Nobody could accuse me of making anything up, long after the fact.

People like Josh and Mellisa [and they’re hardly the first, or only] are so ill prepared and clueless…that they end up shocked, when their malicious acts to harm and destroy other people, start creeping back onto them, with unforeseen [yet, fully justified] consequences…

They live in this fantasy world, where they imagine that their victim “is a pedophile”, absolves them of all wrong doing…

…That does absolutely nothing to absolve them, when they have a history of making up and spreading malicious lies about [and making threats towards] individual people.

“Alyosha finds old roller skates, “modernizes” them, showing a little creativity and creativity, and goes to the city park, where the children skate. All this time he feels how random passers-by chuckle at him, joke, considering his manifestation of creativity as a fad. The film tells how difficult it is to establish contact with the world and other people, while maintaining its individuality.”

‘Perverts take revenge’ on vigilante paedophile hunter who helped convict 28 sex offenders by falsely portraying HIM as a child abuser online…

01) ‘Perverts take revenge’ on vigilante paedophile hunter who helped convict 28 sex offenders by falsely portraying HIM as a child abuser online

“A paedophile hunter who helped bring 28 sex offenders to justice has had his life ruined as ‘perverts’ sought revenge by portraying him as a paedophile online.

Josh Blakely, from West Kensington, London, is unable to get a job or go on dates and is too afraid to leave his house for fear of being attacked if someone recognises him from the six-month online hate campaign.

The 38-year-old believes members of a paedophile ring who feared he would target them stole his images and created dozens of fake social media accounts, videos and websites in which he was wrongly painted as a sex offender.

The trolls even doctored photos of the vigilante to make it look like he had publicly demonstrated in London in a campaign to reduce the age of consent to just six.

Despite reporting the profiles and web pages to police and social media companies, many remain online and new ones pop up daily – leaving Josh fearing for his safety.”

Gee…I wonder if he has learned any empathy…

Alex Jones is not “the canary in the coal mine”…


Date: August 08, 2018

…Alex Jones is someone with a clear track record, of violating the terms of service, of various online services…and then trying to circumvent the lesser severe punishments, for his activities…which led to more severe consequences.

Alex Jones decided he was above the rules, and above the system…

…Cold reality is, that he is not above the rules, nor the system.

On YouTube, there have been actual “canaries in the coal mine”…

…We are known as Minor Attracted People [MAP’s]…We’ve been getting unjustly shit on by YouTube, since YouTube became popular.

You want an example of where you should have put your foot down, and rejected draconian censorship on YouTube?…That example exists, with what YouTube has done to us MAP’s on it’s platform.

Alex Jones clearly deserves the consequences he earned…

…We MAP’s do not deserve, the fate YouTube has imposed upon us.

What really sets sour with me…is all you people out there, who are just now getting around to your “serious outrage” over censorship…

…now that you have a growing inclination, that this trend just might negatively impose upon what you like to do online…

Us MAP’s have been living under the real life consequences of this censorship, far deeper than 99.9999999% of all of you…

…while nearly all of you have continued on, oblivious to it…because you failed to view it as a threat to yourself.

Alex Jones…who’s diatribes belong in the same class as those of Adolf Hitler…is a piss poor hill to fight this war on…

…There have been far more deserving battlefields, to make this stand on…all along…

…And the fact that so many people are distorting the facts, in order to make the Alex Jones situation seem like something it is not…that’s just outrageous.

You people are no champions of free speech…

…You’re just selfcentered people, living in a bubble and feeling personally threatened.

A Report and Lawsuit Expose Harrowing Conditions in a Georgia Prison…


Date: August 08, 2018

01) Could This Be the Worst Solitary Confinement Unit in the Nation?

Thanks to feinmann0!

Community Submitted

“Dr. Craig Haney has investigated the psychological effects of prison conditions for more than 40 years, and has spent time in dozens of supermax prisons and solitary confinement units. But the conditions in the Georgia Diagnostic & Classification Prison’s solitary confinement facility, the Special Management Unit (SMU)—where incarcerated men swallow hacksaw blades and their own feces and urine in desperation, and the air is filled with “a cacophony of prisoner screams and cries for help”—may be the most atrocious he has ever encountered.

“It is one of the harshest and most draconian such facilities I have seen in operation, anywhere in the country,” Haney wrote in an expert report after touring the SMU and conducting anonymous interviews with individuals confined there. Made public in full earlier this month, Haney’s report was originally submitted this May as evidence in an ongoing class-action lawsuit. The suit was originally filed pro se in February 2015 by Timothy Gumm, who was later joined by plaintiffs Robert Watkins and Johnny Mack Brown.

The plaintiffs claim that they and others in the 192-bed unit have been subjected to cruel and unusual punishment and denied due process by current and former officials at the Georgia Department of Corrections (DOC), Georgia Diagnostic & Classification Prison, and the SMU. Within just one year of Gumm’s initial filing, a striking 11 cases with similar fact patterns and claims were submitted to the same U.S. District Court. The men in the SMU are now represented by the Southern Center for Human Rights with pro bono support from the Atlanta-based firm Kilpatrick Townsend & Stockton.”


YouTube’s Habitual Failures to Evenly Enforce It’s Own TOS, Has Created an Atmosphere of Self Entitlement Amongst the Sociopaths…

01) Alex Jones Banned By Facebook/Apple/Youtube/Spotify


“Alex Jones has been banned by nearly all major content distribution platforms. Regardless of how one feels about him, this isn’t a good thing, and here’s why.”

Jimmy…I love you…but, you are dead wrong on this…

Alex Jones has a very long…very deep history…going back to the early nineties…when he was only on talk radio…You should have heard him, back then…

…He was carried by the same station, that aired the likes of the Westboro Baptist Church [Fred Phelps], and various right wing fringe people, like Bo Gritz…and he fit right in…

This recent development of calling himself a “performance artist”, was a stunt to keep from losing all custody of his children…It is not based off of his factual history.

What I’m not liking here:

We have this guy [Alex Jones], who’s spent decades building a business off of the degradation of others…and acting as a menace…He’s appealed to a certain demographic and found a way, to make a profitable business out of this atrocious behavior…

…Eventually, he came to places like YouTube, and other popular internet services…bringing his profitable business [and the traffic it garners] with him…and so many of these services were content to turn a blind eye, even when he regularly violates their terms of service…probably because these private companies/corporations were still financially benefiting from the association…

There’s something you need to understand, though…

…These companies still enforce their terms of service with an iron fist, towards anyone who is small, unknown and unestablished…If they can squash you before there are “too many” public eyes on you, they do it without hesitation…

…The larger people/businesses/channels get treated in a very different manner…It is a double set of standards, where the large, established entities get to do pretty much what they want, with impunity….while the rest of us get served up a cold and dry dose of rule consequences…from both the justified, and the shitty “rules”…

The huge entities are treated like they are untouchables…then finally face a fate similar to what we “small” people would face…and people suddenly want to start pretending that these larger channels are “victims”…when reality is…they are directly facing the same consequence, that the overwhelming rest of us would face…even when we do far, far less.

What is a company like YouTube expected to do…when this brewing liability starts to become something they cant ignore anymore?

At some point…companies that associate with businesses like InfoWars, will become targets in the sorts of lawsuits, which InfoWars is beginning to seriously attract…This has one hell of a lot, to do with what is taking place.

This is not a heroic move, on the part of these companies…It’s self preservation.

I’d take the “free speech” sentiments better, if there were consistency behind them:

I’m an old, old YouTuber, myself…Nobody you’d be at all likely to know…But I do have a fairly deep history, being around YouTube…even having a rather active channel, about ten years ago…

…But, MAPs like myself, live in a perpetually isolated state, on services like YouTube…where they’ll bend over backwards, to concoct excuses to claim, that we “violated the terms of service”…and give zero opportunity, to work with them through the alleged issue of conflict…

You know what I would have liked to have seen?…

…anybody…any-freaking-body, at all…stepping up, and protesting on my behalf…both during the several months, while I was being stalked and harassed by a notorious sociopath on YouTube…and after YouTube decided to abruptly terminate my account [for no stated reason, at all]…

My “crime”?…challenging stereotypes about MAPs…and treating issues we face in our lives, with the seriousness and integrity they deserve…

…and, standing up against protected groups of sociopaths, on YouTube…

There’s nothing new about protected people on YouTube:

Ugly reality is…services like YouTube are a sort of “good ol boys” club…

They turn a blind eye, if they imagine something is in the companies better interest…even when terms of service are being habitually violated…

…They don’t really even give a shit, about their own terms of service…Those only exist to give a convenient cover, when they want to start grossly discriminating against marginalized groups of people.

I have several YouTube accounts…I cant really use any of them, for what I would choose to use them…because they’d be subjectively terminated…and I’d have to deal with all sorts of harassment and abuse, and having to dance around the obstacles thrown at me, to delay the inevitable…

I cant even have a channel, where my base message is something as mild as “MAPs are human, too”…

…while simultaneously, over the last decade…I’ve been forced to watch YouTube build a system, which enfranchises some of the nastiest, most abusive, online sociopath trolls…and hands over to them the opportunity to make money, off of abusing and terrorizing other people…using YouTube’s own platform…

I welcome the crackdowns, that have finally arrived:

YouTube is treacherous, for what it has done…and it’s high time, it started cleaning up the mess it has created, mismanaged, and allowed to run rampant.

No…Alex Jones and company are not victims, here…

This is something that should have happened, years and years ago.
