Subject: Taubman Sucks
Hey, let me start by saying... wow. I don't know what impresses me most about this site and its
tale, and even thinking where I would begin the list only leaves me mumbling. Epic is the only word
to describe the story, heroic the only way to describe your character, and magical the way in which
you tell it. I cannot begin to comprehend the time and effort you have put into this over such a
vast amount of time, but the fact that I have read for nearly 12 hours and not even seen every
scanned legalese document... incredible.
As disappointed as I am to learn that your story concludes unfavourably, Ms. Greenberg, Mr.
Sprinkle, and their law firm are now internationally renowned and recognised as bullies, liars, and
amoral con-artists. Whether or not this was your intention is irrelevant, because every good story
needs a villain -- and, I have to say, that story was profoundly entertaining because of the truly
despicable behaviour of its antagonists.
In light of everything, you showed the power of the Internet and the community of people willing
to fight for free speech and the rights of the "little guy" within it. You also managed to convey
the legal system for the mess it is, while navigating your way through it to justice and victory.
You're a champion for everything that the Internet and the law should represent.
Self-appointing myself an ambassador of the Internet -- if you ever choose to pursue further
action against the despicable, greedy lawyers whose perverse sense of morality is ruining society --
we're with you, all the way.
"Where justice is denied, where poverty is enforced, where ignorance prevails, and where any
one class is made to feel that society is an organized conspiracy to oppress, rob, and degrade
them, neither persons nor property will be safe." -- Frederick Douglass
"The most effective way to restrict democracy is to transfer decision-making from the public
arena to unaccountable institutions: kings and princes, priestly castes, military juntas, party
dictatorships, or modern corporations." -- Noam Chomsky
"Justice is conscience, not a personal conscience but the conscience of the whole of
humanity. Those who clearly recognize the voice of their own conscience usually recognize also the
voice of justice." -- Alexander Solzhenitsyn
I was only going to use one of them but I couldn't decide.
Thanks for fighting the fight. Thanks for sharing it with us.
