James apparently got wind of this post and knows I am a member here. He sent me a PM saying he doesn't understand how 12.160 could be connected to spambot attacks at Rys2Sense, so I thought I'd relay the message.
Apparently . . .
FYI - After over a month, "James" from 12.160 pounced me in a private chat on the What Really Happened site yesterday (Monday 17Dec12 . . . original post 21Nov12) . . .
. . . telling how much I had "wronged him" and demanded an apology.
James was apparently quite "pissed off" at me over this.
However, I thought it odd that he and I have both been in the Chat Room at What Really Happened several times since I posted this original "Request For Information (RFI)" and he has never mentioned it up to now.
I asked him how my asking who he was after he posted such an open "poison letter" about a person in my "cyber circle" had "wronged him"?
This apparently just made him angrier, so I tried another tack.
I asked what it was he felt he (James) deserved an apology.
He typed out a pretty snippy and mocking list of "charges" . .. most of which was that I had "cowardly" posted this thread here on anti-Neocons where he could not respond to my "attack". . .. as he has not registered an avatar here on this site.
I basically "cut and paste" his sentence with an "I hereby apologize to you for . . " in front of it.
This apparently satisfied James. . . as he made another snippy comment and logged off before I could discuss the matter further.
I think the main issue here is that "James" could not see my original post, as he said he was not a member here. Therefore, he was going by "second hand" information . . . which is almost always problematic in any situation that may have an "emotional" component.
Perhaps he thought that rather than just asking for someone trusted to verify someone's Identification in the Greater Truth Community, . . .
. . . as part of a bigger "system pattern analysis" . . . during a major Israeli offensive . . .
. . . and that I was "accusing" or "outing" him in the manner in which he, James, carried out towards "Jen" of "The Periled Sea" or (TPS) in his original open "poison letter".
I still maintain that the Greater Truth Community must on guard at all times for coordinated asymmetrical Warfare attacks . . .
. .. and that We as a Community must work together to analyze the nature of these offensives and prepare our defenses against them.
Also, as Mr. Ryan Dawson often says, We in the Greater Truth Community must grow a bit of a "thicker skin" . . . (shields up) . . .
Furthermore, I think it is very important that We in the Greater Truth Community not be so quick to "REACT" with "fighting words" within our own ranks . . .
As "The Pepper Plan" says,
"In Case of a MEANIE Attack . . .
STOP!!! . . . LOOK!!! . . . and LISTEN!!! . . .
. . . Then THINK!!! . . . Don't Just REACT . . ."
- The Pepper Plan
As I used to tell my students in my Communication classes,
"What I say . .. is NOT what you hear . . .
. . . What I write . . . is NOT what you read."
We are all "funny humans" and we all carry around our own "Filters", "Symbols", "Totems", and "Taboos". . .
That said, I still maintain that anytime someone "accuses" someone as viciously as was done in this original open "poison letter" . . .
. . . We in the Greater Truth Community must all always remember to ask:
"Who is the man . . .
. . . behind the hand . . .
. . . that points the finger?"
