Now you are threatening me. That is just sad that this is what you are about.

Yes, folks, she has my email and my phone number, because, like I said, we were once friends. People, I want you to think about this. If she will do this to me, she will do it to you, too, if you ever disagree with her. Also, according to her own words, she is a master at internet sleuthing. She knows how to uncover anything she wants, and as you now see she not only will do it, she'll also use it against you. So, author beware.

quote I also understand why writers use pseudonyms, but I'll never understand or accept the sock puppet parties that a handful have around here, especially when I'm one of many on the receiving end of the crap.

Really it doesn't matter at all to me, except that they will now have no choce but to stop. That's the thing about sock puppets - once exposed, they're done, whether they believe so or not.

Another word out of the sock puppet party here in KDP and I'll be a bloggin'. ;)

I'll give it about an hour so 19k54 can beg them all to cease attack.[/quote]

quoted so that she cannot edit her post and remove it, accusing me of making it up like she is known to do.

Think you are looking into this a little too deep, you are also getting your wires crossed slightly.

If people were to discover the real name behind my forum identity, that would not give them the ability to find my publications, seeing as my publications are not published under my real name and have not been shared on this forum.

But if I wanted to post under my real name I would have chosen to, I did not.

Neither did you, you decided to create the username '12349876fff' instead of using your real name. So not sure what it is exactly what your point is, but you chose to remain anonymous on this board just as I did.

As I said, if you think I have two accounts, report me. I have reported you.

ETA: What we were talking about, ironically, was the abuse on the forum and how people jump others. I had gotten a negative review which I felt sure care from someone on this forum, but of course, I could not prove it. You wanted to use one of your fake accounts to leave who we thought the review came from a hit review, but I told you not to because I could not prove it one way or the other. We also talked about Christianity and other things, so yes, I did consider you a friend. But regardless of what we thought or what we said privately, you have no right to bring it to this board or to call up an army of attacker to harass me either by email or by phone and since you have now threatened it, I believe you did indeed research Lovely as she claims and harass her like you say you will me.

Quote---It only caused issues for our favorite gang of trolls kubecki. Well, the main troll is attempting gather support from others with exposed names to take on Amazon over it, but the others do not play sock puppet and do not seem all that interested. Really that main troll's name was just another alias Amazon account, but an easily tracked one. Man she lives in a heck of a house - no doubt she is a devout Romney supporter... Sorry you missed it. I didn't click on your profile because you have not been offensive on this forum and I never considered you a sock puppet. The need to know was only in reference to sock puppet pals.--- UnQuote

If she's a Romney supporter then I'll have to say "What a nice Lady"

Not sheirff anymore the new name will be Madam Stalker.

There has been far too much done here by your friends with the troll accounts. I'm not real clear on why you bother to come to their defense because none support you as a writer or promote your books in the course of their day. I know you were truly appreciative of Lovely after she helped you in past, but her review account was closed by Amazon for abuse and the review is gone. Trust me; as far as friends go - they're lousy.

Actually she moved - the first house looked better in Maps. Looking at people that abuse me closely is far from illegal; it's the internet. Researching an author, a poster, a sock puppet, or anyone will never be considered illegal, well, at least it is not yet in the US. I do research for a living, so I know it ain't illegal. I gut public documents and trackdown hidden files to expose people that lie in court.

Your new name for me actually accuses me of a crime. Your friends have made numerous false accusations that accuse me of crimes. I am not and have never been a criminal and the accusation is not legal. Just so you are aware before you continue spreading such lies: I have never been convicted of anything except a traffic infraction.

I really do not sit back and accept the dissemination of false accusations or libelous statements. I do not have to. If you actually believe that a person on a forum that names a sock puppet and intends to blog about that particular sock puppet is a criminal, then I'd suggest you see an attorney and learn about the topic.

Neither Lovely or I have moved. I heard her say she has bought a new house, but as of yet, she has not moved. I have lived here at my present address since 2003. Before that we had a farm. Until about two weeks ago, I had a Ron Paul sign in my yard which was blue and similar to Mitt Romney's, but it wasn't Mittens. So the picture of my house is an old one.

Nevertheless, why did you feel the need to look up both mine and Lovely's house? I have never Googled you. I'm not interested enough in your personal life to do that. As for the other accusations, I've no idea what you are talking about. I've never accused you of anything legal or illegal. You continue to defame my charter, and I have to ask why? I'm just someone on a writers forum. I'm not in competition with you. I write fiction and you write non-fiction. I do, however, on occasion, disagree with you, and I do think you bully people. But other than that, I don't see why you stir up so much drama and jump to so many conclusions.

Do I need to post my author page and website to prove who I am? And if I do, will you sic your followers on me to leave bad reviews? After all, you say they are going to harass me at your word. You know something, I have wasted so much time here. My novel should have been out by now, but it is only half done. Truly, I think I will follow Tim and ask Amazon to deleted profile. If you follow though with your threats, then I guess I will have to have my email and my phone number changed with the phone number unlisted. Unfortunately, I cannot change my address.

Lovely did you not see what she wrote? She Googled your information and found your house. That means she can watch you and your kids if she so wants to.

Everyone thought I was lying about the crazy stuff that was done to me from this forum, now as she spill all that she has and will do, people will start to see the truth. Vicky is a stalker and harasser who goes all out to do just that, stalk and harass people she don't like.

You say you do reshearch into people lives, too me that is stalking. And you are going to expose them, you were the one that butted in where we were haveing a nice conversation and started saying weird things, insulting things. And you pissed me off, most of the time I laugh it off. And I see in a most calm thread when you butt in the arguement starts.

And I don't have any friends here, only some people wish to help without being rude. And I really don't care if my books are promoted or not, I don't promote other peoples books so what else is new?
