Finally, sofaking6 is guilty of not fully explaining why she thinks JPS was ripping off (or deriving) his post from her link.

War, good effort but I'm thinking The Powers That Be don't like it. But anyway, here's my response:

Anyone who reads the Atheist Fools board knows I believe that all Christian apologetics are unoriginal, derivative, and, to my mind, undeserving of time-consuming responses. I am always irritated by such posts and replies to them. YOU should know this, War. Any similar site could have functioned to prove my point, that one just happened to be the most similar in language, of the very few that I could manage to read without gagging, to Joseph's post. Had that post been authored by anyone else, it would not have made Best Of and I would have ignored it.

Also, I think you're right on the original source of all this, but you are ignoring completely the stuff that is central to me personally; namely, that in several emails to other people (and, I have reason to believe, on private message boards), Joseph specifically referenced me as the leader of an organized conspiracy to discredit him as a person and as a writer. I'm happy to forward the ones that I have to you as proof of this, particularly the ones in which I am mentioned as the main defendant in a pending defamation and/or (it's not clear) libel lawsuit. Oddly, in some I am portrayed as in charge and Kazim is referred to as "tangential", but in others the descriptions are reversed. This is a complete lie, which should be retracted by its perpetrator. I have nothing to apologize for. And if the lawsuit is a red herring, I should be made aware of that fact.

My other problem is that I have not, and most likely will not, be allowed to state as much on the boards, yet Joseph has carte blanche both online and off to harass myself and others, and to defame my character.

I'll send you $20 if TMF lets this post stay up, cuz I'm betting they won't.
