    Of course, once your harassment began, any agreements about anonymity went right out the window. That was your doing.
    Actually as your license was TERMINATED, anything after such is moot.

    I guess if your legal counsel is guiding you this closely, then you must have also been acting under advice of your attorney when you made public claims that I was a drug addict, a pedophile, a pornographer, a cannibal, etc., right?
    How about threatening my survivability?

    I expect you'll be completely unemployable by the time we arrive at the end of this.

    There was never a license, there was simply permission to publish. What are you babbling about?

    I haven't the slightest idea what "threatening your survivability" means. If you're claiming I've threatened your life or suggested that I'd use violence against you, I'd like to see some evidence of that.

    I certainly fully expect that when you've been dealt with for your various actions, you will indeed find it difficult to get gainful employment, certainly in any field relating to computers and/or the internet. I also expect that you'll be paying me punitive damages out of whatever earnings you can drum up from a job at McDonald's or via begging on the street as a consequence of your irresponsible claims regarding my supposed drug addiction, publication of pornography, pedophilia and (heh) cannibalism. You've publicly accused me of multiple crimes, and you haven't got a shred of evidence to show for yourself.

    Now, if the consequences look to you like they "threaten your survivability", then maybe you should have thought twice or more times before you undertook the actions you did. You can't do those sorts of things and then complain that your victims are taking issue with you.

    That will, however, be your own fault, and a consequence of the actions you undertook. You;ll get every chance to defend yourself, but I don't think things look too good for you, honestly.

    By the way, if by "threatening your survivability" you mean having a negative impact on your ability to get a job, isn't that precisely what you're attempting to do right now, by sending defamatory emails to third-parties mentioned in press releases that are related to my employer...?

    Or did you somehow forget about that?

    The difference is that I'm talking about presenting my position in court; you're, instead, engaging in illegal stalking and harassment.

    "My name is Victor T. Cypert. In 2003 - 2004 I worked as the resident computer programmer for the American Federation of Musicians in Hollywood, CA (Local 47.) David "Lefty" Schlesinger stalked, harassed, and otherwise abused me -- going so far as to call my employer in an effort to have me fired and posting my employer's IP address on his then-active LiveJournal.

    If you need an affidavit, a sworn statement, or some other document attesting to what transpired between myself and Mr. Schlesinger, I will be more than happy to provide one."

    Yes, you've said that. Multiple times. Repeating it doesn't make it any more substantive, but if you want to plow on, "like a broken record", go nuts. Oh wait...

    Mr. Cypert's affidavit, should it actually make an appearance, won't prove to be useful for anything more than bird-cage lining, as I've said. His manager and the union's HR department, will back up my story, not the version you're attempting to spin here.

    In speaking with his manager at the time regarding Mr. Cypert's use of a workplace machine to issue threats of bodily harm—I've never spoke directly to Mr. Cypert—he told me that, other than this incident, Mr. Cypert wasn't a horrible employee, and he asked me whether I would consider letting him keep his job, although he was indeed prepared to fire him if I insisted.

    I agreed on the condition that there was absolutely no repetition of anything of the sort, and that neither I, nor anyone related to me, was to hear so much as a squeak out of him in the future. His manager readily agreed.

    As I've noted, it seems that things between Mr. Cypert and the union couldn't have come to a terribly positive end, since the position in question doesn't even appear on his resume.

    But hey, if he's willing to have all of that dragged out in court in the baffling belief that this will somehow either help you or hurt me, I'm game. Trot out your affidavit, by all means. Where are we trying this case, anyway?

    I've still not heard a single word from the Santa Cruz County Sheriff nor the FBI. Any idea what the delay is? Maybe they tried to verify your contact information and discovered it was bogus...?

    Default nope

    Mr. Cypert is on record as vehemently denying he ever sent you any kind of threat or menace.

    "On record"? Where?

    His manager, and the union's HR department, will tell a different story.
