In Response To: Your publisher's correct -- (analysis inside) (Mel. White)
Going to work. Just got up and got to do the makeup thing. Very good points indeed. I would propbably guess someone is using the guys name. However there is a 10,000 sqft logistics warehouse rented in Delta BC to Beaming DATA. Looks like it is a logistic warehouse that ships servers. They use cargo containers to ship. Nothing strange about that. I will keep you informed. Possibly write back from work.. I checkd your links. It looks like that may be the place in Canada and the techie was posting tips ABOUT LAPTOP CD DRIVES THAT QUIT WORKING IN vISTA. sory about the caps.. got to get to work. Probably had his email and things ripped off from the page. STRANGE WORLD ISN'T IT... Talk to you all later

| PLEASE READ THIS LEGAL NOTICE CAREFULLY BEFORE YOU FILE A LAWSUIT OR EVEN WASTE TIME THINKING ABOUT IT. It has been done before, but never successfully. In fact, the last dodobird who tried it ended up being ordered to pay more than $77,000 in attorney fees ($65,000+ to my attorneys and $12,000+ to my co-defendant's legal advisor).
If your attorney is worth his salt, he's going to tell you that the expense of filing a lawsuit you can't win is a whole lot worse than any "damages" resulting from messages posted on this insignificant little chunk of cyberspace.
NEWS FLASH: I didn't just climb down off that ol' turnip truck yesterday. I'm well aware that expressing a negative opinion, relating one's personal experience, and restating provable facts are all legal in this country and do not constitute libel, slander, or defamation -- so you don't want to play games with me, and you sure don't want to start something you aren't prepared to finish. I don't take threats lightly, and I don't accept bribes (or did you call it a "mutually-beneficial arrangement"?). I'll turn you in faster than you can yell, "ARREST ME, I'M SCUM!!"
Do yourself a favor and turn your legal team loose in greener pastures.

In closing, I would like to remind you once again that it is still legal, in this great country of ours, to express a PERSONAL OPINION, as long as it is presented as opinion and not as fact.
And finally, all you scammers out there will do well to remember that TRUTH IS AN ABSOLUTE DEFENSE against charges of libel, defamation, and slander... so if you're operating just a hop, skip, and jump ahead of the law, you might want to think twice before doing anything stupid... (AND SHAME ON YOU!!).
