This is not going to make a lot of sense to some of you...
...but that's okay, it doesn't make a lot of sense to me, either. ;0) I drop it here to that it can be linked to, should it disappear from elsewhere. ==============================================================================
From: Section Seventeen Sent: 10/19/13 08:46 PM Subject: Illegal activity and breaches of the U.S. Patriot Act Group: Gorean Round Table Discussions Discussion Board: Statements of the Bizarre 9
Qui tacet consentire videtur, ubi loqui debuit ac potuit
He who is silent is taken to agree; he ought to have spoken when he was able to
We have taken the option to contact each of you under bcc so as to prevent knowledge of who has or has not received this correspondence.
We may or may not have included media sources; we may or may not have included friends and known associates; we may or may not have included those who have been identified as the sources of the illegal activities and creation of a clear and present danger.
Not every recipient has been deemed to be subject to this correspondence.
Canadian Criminal Code (RSC 1985, c. C-46), section 19 and U.S. Model Penal Code Section 2.02(9) state that knowledge that an activity is unlawful is not an element of an offense unless the statute creating the offense specifically makes it one. Ignorantia legis neminem excusat.
Charge One: Conspiracy to commit Defamation with regards the subject of the message board entitled Statements of the Bizarre 9.
Defamation is legally defined as any intentional false communication, either written or spoken, that harms a person's reputation; decreases the respect, regard, or confidence in which a person is held; or induces disparaging, hostile, or disagreeable opinions or feelings against a person.
Conspiracy is legally defined as an agreement between two or more persons to engage jointly in an unlawful or criminal act, or an act that is innocent in itself but becomes unlawful when done by the combination of actors. Federal statutes, and many state statutes, now require not only agreement and intent but also the commission of an Overt Act in furtherance of the agreement.
An Overt Act is legally defined as an open, manifest act from which criminality may be implied.

This is held to be a confession of conspiracy an illegal activity the purpose of which is defamation. 5.

This is held to be a confession of bash boarding an illegal activity the purpose of which is defamation. 6. The fetlife user known as Nyre has shared said documentation with others allowing them to misrepresent the facts to suit their agenda. 7. The fetlife user known as Bridgette has made deliberate and false accusations 8. The fetlife user known as Dragon participation in the message board allowed Bearofar to redirect the focus back to defamatory comments about the subject. 9. The fetlife user known as dubiouscharm has made multiple references to Bridgette’s false accusations keeping it an item of focus as the message board spread over multiple pages. 10. The fetlife user known as Nyre made public reference of emails received to the fetlife user Turiag 11. The fetlife user known as Turiag has on multiple occasions brought messages boards to the attention of MichelleRobbins for purposes of making defamatory comments.
Charge Two: Breach of the U.S. Patriot Act
It is a breach of the U.S. Patriot Act to make public reference to covert activity and to link the real name of an individual to such activity. It is also an offence to deliberately redact the identities of military and non-military personnel.
Such activity creates a clear and present danger and places the safety of said named and redacted individuals at risk. It can result in the targeting of said individuals their friends and family for terrorist action or reprisal.
It is for this reason and this reason alone we have saught to have said message board removed from a public venue where it may be openly viewed by any persons who come across it.
Charge Three: Conspiracy to impede federal law enforcement officer.
Under 18 U.S.C.A. § 372, it is a crime to conspire to impede or injure a federal law enforcement officer.
We have contacted the individual known to you as Nyre and also Bitlove by letter on 9 September giving formal reprimand and requesting the message board be removed. Our requests have been ignored
We have contacted individuals since by telephone and email and been met in most instances with resistance and lack of co-operation thereby impeding our investigation.
Given the nature of said impedance when taken in conjunction with the pre-existing evidence of conspiracy and given the deaths of two men who were known to be associated with one of the redacted persons; we are viewing this as "single issue terrorism" until such time as we can determine if the deaths were or were not a direct result of the message board in question.
We are hereby giving formal warning that we have gathered sufficient evidence to date to file the required paperwork under The U.S Patriot Act and Bill S-7 to gain full access to all records and activities of any and all individuals associated with the originator of the message board (known as Bearofar) as well as all other members of the Forum in which the message board was published.
We further feel that given these people claim to be representative of a lifestyle referred to by themselves as Gor; that this lifestyle bears closer scrutiny as do the lives of all who associate with it as well as the individual upon whose books this cult is based.
We therefore give additional notice that Gor has now been designated cult status and is being viewed as potential threat to the security of the western world as exemplified by the following
1. The members seem to treat their leaders with deep obedience and reverence even to the point of breaking the law for them. 2. Some members appear to act as enforcers; spreading falsehoods and lies at the behest of said leaders. 3. A general distain and arrogant lack of responsibility for the actions of the cult members. 4. A callous disregard for matters of national and international security and the law. 5. Anyone who criticizes or questions the leadership is targeted for defamation. 6. Multiple references to non-members and their activities in terms designed to devalues them as being inferior, incapable, or not worthy. 7. Multiple references to the pending end of law and order indicative of a doomsday cult scenario. 8. An unwillingness to co-operate with the proper authorities.. 9. An unpatriotic disregard for the war on terror. 10. Grandiose speech of doing the right thing even if one must do it alone yet attacking those do act in such a manner against the actions of the cult members.
Since you have ignored our previous attempts to end this matter with discretion and since you only seem to respect raw power; we will demonstrate the fullness of our power.
We reject the view that privacy interests are the sorts of things that can be traded for security and therefore under the U.S Patriot Act and Bill S-7; we reserve the right to:
1. Interview your family members 2. Interview your children 3. Interview your neighbours and friends 4. Interview the teachers at the schools and colleges your children attend 5. Interview your work colleagues and business associates 6. Investigate your financial history 7. Access and examine your digital footprints including your emails and search engine history. 8. Take any and all steps we feel necessary and to act with impunity to achieve our objective of the removal of the message board thus ending the clear and present danger it represents and a full publication by the parties listed above of a full retraction and public acknowledgement of their breach of The U.S. Patriot Act. 9. To liaise with representatives within the U.S. and Canada under the Multi-sum security principle
Irrespective of what you may falsely claim in your ignorance and arrogance; your words and your actions have consequences and you will be held to account.
The false anonymity of the internet will not protect you. The reality is that search engines including Google do retain information for some time, and it's important, for example that we are all subject in the United States to the Patriot Act. It is possible that that information could be made available to the authorities

An indivual known on Fetlife by the user name LionHeart55. He hung up the phone. contacting him to discuss this will I am certain )) )) This is our final warning as to the severity of this issue. )) )) It is important that we are all subject in the United States to the Patriot Act. You may feel as a Canadian citizen you are exempt but those who have made said comments in violation of the U.S Patriot act are within the United States and are subject to the Act and your lack of cooperation can and will be viewed as deliberate interference with justice and a criminal investigation as well as aiding and abetting terrorist activity. )) )) It is in nobody’s interest for Fetlife to become the new wikileaks but you would do well to remember how far we are prepared to go in matters of National and International security )) )) Any further failures by you in compliance with our wishes and your own terms of service for the following will result in our taking the matter further. )) )) You will therefore )) )) 1. Remove the thread in question from the public doman thus ending the clear and present danger to life that it creates. We will accept the removal of the contents of each comment made within said message board. )) )) 2) 2. Oversee and ensure that a full retraction is published by the following fetlife users: )) )) Bearofar )) )) Bridgette )) )) Calliana )) )) Dragon )) )) Dubiouscharm )) )) MichelleRobbins )) )) Nyre )) )) Turiag )) )) 3) 3. Publish Appendix A below within said forum thereby stressing to it’s members the severity of their actions and the reason for the message board’s removal. )) )) If you review the message board in question user Bearofar has confessed publically to creating said message board to bash the subject and has made reference to private emails he was not party thus providing evidence of conspiracy and co-operation of others. Something he further referred to in the introductory comments he published when he started the discussion board. )) )) Nothing short of your full cooperation and compliance with all three conditions will bring an end to this matter. )) )) As I am certain you are aware; the war on terror is a very serious issue and by allowing that message board to stand; you are aiding and abetting potential terrorist targeting of two persons; their friends and their families. )) )) I am certain I do not need to remind you of the effects any negative publicity will have on your membership should either of the subjects of that discussion board be injured or killed as a result of terrorist action or reprisal in a similar manner to the attacked suffered by Lee Rigby especially when it is brought to light you had a chance to act and failed to so do. )) )) You are not shielded from liability by Canadian Law and just as Facebook are being currently being investigated for their failure to act prior to the death of Carolina Picchio in Italy so Fetlife and Bitlove may well find yourselves investigated yet again for your failings to prevent criminal activity on or criminal activity occurring as a result of activity on your social network site including Fetlife’s role in the on-going case against Tanya Bogdanovich, and Michael MacGregor. We will also be investigating Fetlife’s role in the Gilbert Valle case as well as the death of Elizabeth Marriott. )) )) We also reserve the right under the U.S. Patriot act to examine every single message and financial transaction connected with Fetlife, it’s end users and it’s staff. )) )) Appendix A (To be published on our behalf within the group we have referred to above) )) )) Subject )) )) Acting on behalf of The Canadian Intelligence Branch; The F.B.I. and U.S Cyber Command and MI6: A formal reprimand is hereby issued to the Fetlife Social Network users known here by the user names Bearofar; Bridgette; Calliana; Dragon; dubiouscharm; MichelleRobbins; Nyre and Turiag who having conspired and acted with malice and forethought have participated in illegal activities resulting in a breach of the U. S. Patriot Act. )) )) Body of Text )) )) As a direct result of your careless hubris and conspiracy to defame and discredit with no consideration for the consequences of your actions you have published information in a public forum which has created a clear and present danger which may result in terrorist action or reprisal against one or both of the subjects of your conspiracy; their friends and their families. )) )) Disinformation has often been used to incite violence by certain militant groups. Just as inflammatory messages of the Myanmar killings led to the Mumbai rioting; so too through the use of disinformation for your own self-interests and with careless disregard and lack of thought to the consequences or repercussions of your actions; your irresponsible conjecture in the deliberate redaction of the identities of a decorated former British Army officer and that of a second British citizen and in so doing have created a clear and present danger whereby certain militant groups may target the subject of your message board entitled Statements of the Bizarre 9. )) )) In times of war; and make no mistake we are at war on terror, there are prohibited subjects and in posting comments as you have done; you have broken these: Loose lips sink ships. )) )) CLEAR AND PRESENT DANGER )) )) The clear and present danger test was first established by Justice Oliver Wendell Holmes, Jr. )) )) ‘The question in every case is whether the words used are used in such circumstances and are of such a nature as to create a clear and present danger that they will bring about the substantive evils that the United States Congress has a right to prevent. It is a question of proximity and degree. When a nation is at war, many things that might be said in time of peace are such a hindrance to its effort that their utterance will not be endured so long as men fight, and that no Court could regard them as protected by any constitutional right.’ )) )) Make no mistake; we are currently involved in an on-going war on terror and any and all comments that may result in or contribute towards an act of terror being committed are not protected by any constitutional right and are deemed by ourselves as to be aiding and abetting the enemy. )) )) Our prior attempts to resolve this matter discretely by letter, email and telephone has been met with resistance and hostility. )) )) We view those who are openly resistant to or hostile towards the International Intellegence community as having something to hide. We reject the view that privacy interests are the sorts of things that can be traded for security. )) )) BACKGROUND )) )) On 09 September 2013 a letter was sent to the registered offices of Bitlove Inc at the following address )) )) 137-4438 West 10th Avenue )) Vancouver, British Columbia )) Canada )) )) A Second letter was also sent to the fetlife user known as Nyre who provided the source material that was used with malice and forethought by Bearofar to falsely redact the sender and the subject of said email and deliberately misrepresent them as being one and the same. )) )) These letters were sent in relation to criminal activities within the website Fetlife that you participated in within a sub section of Fetlife known as Gorean Round Table Discussions. )) )) In the letter it was explained that these activities which not only breach Fetlife’s own Terms of Conduct were also in breach of among other items of statue: The U.S. Patriot Act )) )) The letter instructed Fetlife to remove the discussion from the public domain and to issue a reprimand to those involved. )) )) BASH BOARDING )) )) A Bash Board is defined as an online bulletin board on which individuals can post anything they want. Generally, posts are malicious and hateful statements directed against another person. )) )) The initiator of the message board entitled Statements of the Bizarre 9 has issued a public admission not only of creating the discussion board with the intent to Bash another individual but also of having received and liaised with others via messages prior to the creation of said message board. )) )) It is a criminal offence in both Canada and the U.S to engage in such activity and every individual who has actively participated in the message board, or have provided source material which was misrepresented may find themselves facing a fine and in some states imprisonment as a result of their participation. )) )) A PUBLIC CONFESSION HAS ALREADY BEEN MADE )) )) In making both references to emails received and in stating the message board was created to ‘bash’ another member of this social network; the Fetlife user known as Bearofar has confessed to the illegal activity of Bash Boarding, and also made acknowledgement of a conspiracy; which is defined in law as an agreement between two or more persons to commit a crime or accomplish a legal purpose through illegal action. )) )) FURTHER EVIDENCE OF CONSPIRACY )) )) Evidence of a conspiracy is further supported by the actions of Bridgette; Calliana; Dragon; dubiouscharm; MichelleRobbins; and Turiag , acting with malice and forethought have published untrue statements and false accusations to further the patronage of Bearofar and further his objective. )) )) Other evidence exists in the fact that the contents of an email sent to Nyre by direct email have been referred to verbatim by others while at the same time misrepresenting the contents of said email again with the intent to further the patronage of Bearofar as his objective )) )) This has not only provided enough evidence of a conspiracy to warrant further investigation by our colleagues in the FBI cybercrimes department but has more importantly resulted in a breach of The U.S. Patriot Act. )) )) REPERCUSSIONS OF SAID INCIDENT )) )) Said breach occurred when through the deliberation redaction of two non US citizens; public references were made to Black Ops and linking them to the actual name of an individual. This is a breach of the Patriot Act as it is considered to be aiding and abetting terrorist activity by publishing information in an open venue which may encourage and create a situation whereby one or both individuals; their families and their friends could become the target of terrorist action or reprisal )) )) Section 212 of the U.S. Patriot Act permits us access to records if there is a reasonable belief that an emergency involving immediate danger of death or serious physical injury to any person exists. )) )) MEDIA PUBLICITY )) )) We understand and acknowledge that not everyone who participated in that discussion was an active or even knowing party to the conspiracy and that some members may have been coerced or manipulated into participating. )) )) To that end we have made several attempts to contact individuals via email, letter and telephone and have been met with an unwillingness to cooperate in our previous attempts to have the discussion removed and a retraction published thereby end the matter discretely to the benefit of all parties concerned. )) )) THE FIRST AMENDMENT )) )) People often feel immune from state surveillance because they’ve done nothing wrong but an entity or group can distort a person's image and harm one's reputation, or through guilt by association can result in damage to a person’s reputation or result in their becoming a person of interest. )) )) In Kowalski v. Berkeley County Schools, -- F.3d -- (4th Cir. July 27, 2011) the court found that because the MySpace page was ‘created for the purpose of inviting others to indulge in disruptive and hateful conduct.’ It was immune from a first amendment defence. )) )) If you have something that you don't want anyone to know, maybe you shouldn't be doing it in the first place, but if you really need that kind of privacy, the reality is that search engines including Google do retain this information for some time, and it's important, for example that we are all subject in the United States to the Patriot Act. It is possible that that information could be made available to the authorities. )) )) IGNORANCE OF THE LAW )) )) Canadian Criminal Code (RSC 1985, c. C-46), section 19 and United States Model Penal Code Section 2.02(9) both state that knowledge that an activity is unlawful is not an element of an offense unless the statute creating the offense specifically makes it one. Therefore to claim ignorance of the illegalities of the activities outlined above will not be an accepted defence. )) )) Ignorantia legis neminem excusat. )) )) Qui tacet consentire videtur, ubi loqui debuit ac potuit )) )) He who is silent is taken to agree; he ought to have spoken when he was able to
