Does this guy not know how the internets work?

Maybe a lawyer can pipe up but it would almost seem that Mrs. Carreon is toeing the Libel line with some of the things she is saying about Inman, particularly about his treatment of women.

Wow...

Your ego and greed are the reason millions are out of work right now. You are a contemptible butt baby that managed to live from out of the anus of mankind, polluting our lives with pre-restraint of our own imaginations and paranoia for those who have already created beautiful things. If I had 10+ billion dollars I would try to forcibly use you as a space monkey for early colonization of Mars, at least then we'd get valuable data out of your pathetic existence.

I can imagine myself saying something like that when I was 10 years-old if the internet had grown to the size it is now. I just told poop and penis jokes on Prodigy. Goddamn the 90's sucked.

OMG. Carreon is a poet.

I suddenly believe and God and know that He loves me!

I've been following this pretty closely for a while. What the wife has been saying makes it clear that she is nuts. To the extreme.

She claims to have been a member of a cult for a while, she and her husband have tried to start their own religion. She also appears to be a Birther, and a Truther, and probably subscribes to every conspiracy from moon hoax to ancient aliens.

And lets not forget ole Chuck is posting deranged poems about Inman.

I can imagine some paralegal at Inman's lawyer's firm archiving every last bit of craziness they spew, and his hard drive is getting full.
 
2012-06-27 02:06:22 AM  
I've seen this before. The lawyer turns out to be a crazy crackpot and gets disbarred. Seriously, this goes beyond job or attention whoring. He has deep seated mental issues and should probably seek help. But he won't.

Jesus this is a lot of hullabaloo over some comic strips. The only comics worth this much fighting would be original hand-drawn panels of Calvin and Hobbes.

I've got a drawer full of Bazooka Joe strips that says you're wrong. You may laugh at me now, but I'm going to save up enough to get that jetpack. And then who's going to be laughing?

Well, Jack Thompson got the boot, and Orly Taitz's batshiattery hasn't been grabbing headlines lately, so we need SOME crazyass lawyer to enjoy.

0/10. Wayyyy too obvious, trolly. If you're going to make shiat up about people, you gotta make the crazy just a little bit believable.

So defending and/or donating to an artist whose work was plagiarised now makes one a terrible person? When did that happen and why didn't I get the memo?

"It's not the first time we've been targeted as sacrificial victims," Tara wrote. "We were targeted by the entire Buddhist community when I told them to go fark themselves, for being nihilists, elitists, and authoritarians."


So wait, you told a group of people to go fark themselves, they responded in some way that you disapprove of, and you are the sacrificial victim? Or are you angry at the authoritarian buddhists? I'm not really sure which of those makes less sense.

Yeah, real assholes, those buddhists. Always being all "peaceful" and "in harmony" and "one w/ the universe" and all that bullshiat. Got Damn authoritarians, I tell you.

Yeah, these two stepped into it, but...can you imagine how much time and money this is costing Matthew Inman, who did nothing but respond legally to an extortion threat from people who were stealing his cartoons?

Inman has every right to go after Carreon and FunnyJunk for everything they've got for the harassment, libel, defamation, attempted restraint of trade, and probably about 12 other potential civil charges-and since his harasser is a lawyer, all he has to do is sink to his level. Inman is also getting trashed, and the only way to stop it is to play the lawyer's game.

That's gotta SUCK.

You managed to piss off the entire Buddhist community? Gold!

I imagine this is all growing into a giant defamation case. I'm pretty sure Inman isn't a Nazi.

So, if you call the Carreon house and ask for the troll of the house they would ask if you wanted mr or mrs troll?

If anybody missed it, his wife is like legit crazy. Like straight-up "Satan is a communist and runs the Fourth Reich New World Order" farking Looney Tunes. I think what happened here is oddball-but-sane guy married lunatic-definitely-not-sane woman thinking she was a kindred oddball and just got dragged into her nuttiness out of self-preservation.
 
2012-06-27 06:11:36 AM  
You're a lawyer, your job is knowing certain facets of your countries legal system and using that knowledge to protect/better your clients for the most part. You've just discovered that the Internet is full of farking landmines that summon a horde of people behaving badly (anonymity + audience = shiatcock after all) so the best thing you can think of is let a relative post libel/slanderous material online about someone you are embroiled in a lawsuit with??

This does not seem a rational thing to do.
 
2012-06-27 06:26:27 AM  
BTW according to Carreon's filing in federal court, he has a trademark on his name. No, I'm not kidding.
 
2012-06-27 06:26:29 AM  
I wonder if someone could hire Carreon to sue his own wife over the unauthorised use of movie stills and video that she plasters over her site? Would he take on the challenge? Could we please have that televised?

If possible would be fun.

That's not actually that uncommon when your business is based on your name, anything from a business like this guy's to, well, Walt Disney.

I'm guessing she discussed this with her husband, and they came up with a plan to use the Penn & Teller Bullsh*t strategy - make that insults so extreme and outrageous that they're no longer slander/libel but protected speech.

Damn.

If you have a teabagger in your life, make sure they get the help they need. It's a serious mental disease that can lead to things like this.

OOhh, this looks fun.

I'll check back in a few hours. i expect you farkers to save me at least a few delicious "buttery" handfulls.

/the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over agin but expecting different results. She's doing the same exact thing on different websites willing to hear her bawwing, expecting someone to "come around" to their right and just side.
