In Response To: The eagle has landed .... (Margaret MacGillivray)
Hey Margeret- Thanks for the advice- Her husband will be there so hopefully that will help. He is staying at a local hotel but will spend most of his time at her house working on the business plan.
She hasn't relpied back to me after she said everything is ok, it did tell her I was glad she checked it out but I wonder if I didn;t plant a seed and she is digging deeper now-I hope. I don't want to burst anyone's bubble, she was asking for postitive support.
As for me, I am better and got things worked out with the foundation. They contacted all the artists and myself and have agreed to return the art at no cost or they can leave it until the fall in hopes there will be a auction. Most chose to leave them, so I did too. But I asked it to be in writing that if no auction will be held by the fall, then the art will be returned and they did it.
The lady that called me, was very nice and totally understood my point and was very apologetic and said all the artists had high regards for me and told her how hard I worked and it was wrong for them to do what they did to me. That made me feel really good.
Hope things are going well on your side of the pond-Carla

| 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!!).
