Voiceofreason01: The cease and desist letter was in pretty plain language. Domain camping isn't cool./this Freivald guy sounds like an asshole.
4tehsnowflakes: Gabrielmot: It sounds (to me) like he's implying in the P.P.S. that someone is already doing this, and that his claim for "excess property taxes" from the P.S. would be valid if this was brought to light for the public. Actually sounds like a veiled threat.-I think we may have found one of the last lawyers in the states with balls.Yes, he has balls and yes he is making a threat in the PPS. He is alleging that the current administration did a sweetheart deal to line someone's pockets on the official website design and maintenance.However, the threat to harass the township with an unrelated claim over the valuation of his personal property for tax purposes is out of place and inappropriate. It has nothing to do with the case. And the threat to expose corruption does not belong here either. If you piss off the judge you do a disservice to the client.And to those imagining that the lawyer who wrote the letter could be in trouble for doing that, think again. No case has been filed. Even if it were filed, the bar is set pretty high on sanctioning lawyers for filing frivolous cases. It has to be obviously for purposes of harassment. A weak trademark-based claim is not going to get you there.
Ross E. Krushan: Internet Tough AW here, all of you pay attention to this broad so she can feel better about her douchey self.
Gabrielmot: 4tehsnowflakes: ecmoRandomNumbers: vudutek: kxs401: Huh, it's actually the writer of the response letter who comes off as rather an asshole bully.At least Freivald hired a bigger asshole to smack down the lesser asshole.And that's what you want in a lawyer.As one of the assholes who does this kind of thing, 4ts says the second lawyer Kaplitt was right that the domain name claim is weak, but the letter is unprofessional. For example, a footnote referring to a personal property tax issue the lawyer has with the municipality, really? The fact that he is doing the case pro bono does not excuse the arrogance. Just telling the other side that you have lawyered up is usually enough to get them to back off to some degree.It wasn't clear, but reread this part..."P.S. Off topic, but as long as we're chatting, I hereby demand from the Township a refund in the amount of $28,763.22 for excess property taxes levied on 74 Terrace Avenue since my acquisition of ownership on August 9, 2010. Detailed calculations and legal authority available on request.P.P.S. Wait, I have a better idea. I just learned that westorange.gov is still available and any state or local agency can license it from the U.S. General Services Administration for only $125 per year. Since the whole refund thing might trigger a stampede if word got around, instead how about if I form a limited liability company to conceal my identity, and then use it to license westorange.gov from the GSA - I'll just need a letter from Mayor Parisi designating my LLC as an authorized Township agent - and then my LLC will sublicense it to the Township for a paid-up royalty of $28,763.22 ! Pretty clever, huh ? Krakoviak will be a hard sell, but Sayers should like it. Just something to consider ..."It sounds (to me) like he's implying in the P.P.S. that someone is already doing this, and that his claim for "excess property taxes" from the P.S. would be valid if this was brought to light for the public.

Maestro1701: 4tehsnowflakes: Gabrielmot:You know you're boring the crap out of us, right?
Professor Horatio Hufnagel: It's awesome shiat like this that makes me regret never working toward becoming a lawyer.
OhioUGrad: Unprofessional, but hilarious. It's like the two girls who talk trash to each other then slap fight.It's two lawyers, they should duel at sunup.....one less lawyer means we all win.
jmr61: "Don't remember signing?" I hear it all the time and 99.9% of the time YOU signed it.And seriously, you have a half million dollar legal problem and you're NOT hiring a lawyer?And finally, are there any pictures of your family or the bank holding a gun to your head wherein they forced you to sign all those bad promissory notes? I'll guess that's a no.You sound like someone who made a business deal, finally recognized it and is still looking for a way to not pay back what you said you would.
draa: Ross E. Krushan: Internet Tough AW here, all of you pay attention to this broad so she can feel better about her douchey self.Says some swingin' diack on Fark. Well done asshole./an asshole is just an asshole//stop being one to women
noitsnot: Kind of weird how his CSB has you so frantic. Anything you want to talk about?
nekom: vudutek: kxs401: Huh, it's actually the writer of the response letter who comes off as rather an asshole bully.At least Freivald hired a bigger asshole to smack down the lesser asshole.Which is precisely what you want in a lawyer. Maybe it's a sad state of affairs, but it's absolutely true. My divorce attorney was a sleazy despicable son of a biatch, but I'm damned glad he was MY sleazeball.
Theaetetus: noitsnot:I get that the company needs IP to defend itself against other companies - but the stuff they try to patent is such tremendous bullshiat. It's either ridiculously trivial or obviously existing art, or total bullshiat...If your company's programmers only come up with things that are ridiculously trivial or obvious existing prior art, then why is your company paying their salaries? Sounds like they could be replaced with a couple of Internet searches.... Or maybe it's only trivial in hindsight and they're making valuable contributions that are beautifully simple, but that needed hard work to come up with originally? and/or violates basic laws of nature.I want to see the software patent that violates basic laws of nature./"A computer-implemented method for teleportation, comprising..."
mekkab: I love how it was this whole big build up, then the payoff was in scribd.com, which is blocked at work./I hate the internet.
xellas84: Update: Apparently the website in question's forum has noticed the gigantic influx of traffic.One Gary Englert (apparently a well-known troll so venomous that they've set up a section of the website just for his posts) had this to say:"No, and not by a long shot and this little Internet flurry is simply a flash in the pan.If subjecting another human being to public ridicule in these ciecumstance is somehow laudable, I fail to see where and I think the beenfit to the Township, and its image, is fae better served when we recognize its heros."Someone isn't familiar with the Internet much is he?
