Well, my fellow Martians, and all you lovely ladies from Venus, I'm sorry to say that my PMA, and trying to practice the principles expounded in The Secret have been temporarily interrupted again.
I truly hope that none of you compatriots ever have to suffer from the following scenario. By the way, it is all TRUE!
1. FINALLY – THIS AUTOMATIC MESSAGE FROM EARTHLINK IS THE ACTUAL FIRST EVER RECEIVED DIRECTLY FROM EARTHLINK! AND GUESS WHAT - IT WAS CORRECTLY CAUGHT IN MY JUNKMAIL FOLDER (WHICH I ALWAYS CHECK BEFORE DELETING).
2. AFTER READING THE ENTIRE MESSAGE – WHICH IS ‘GOBBLEDY-GOOK’ TO ME AS A LAYMAN, THE FINAL PARAGRAPH WAS THE ONLY ONE WHICH MADE SENSE!
3. FOR YOUR EDIFICATION AND INFORMATION, WHICH IS REALLY NONE OF YOUR BUSINESS — PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING FROM ME!
A. my real ISP is peoplepc.com --- I pay them every month for a service and everything has worked FINE FOR OVER A YEAR! SO WHATEVER YOU DID, OR THEY DID, I HAVE NO KNOWLEDGE OR CONTROL OVER — YOU TWO WORK IT OUT... OR GET SUED !! My address is: poesyco2.peoplepc.com
B. my BIGFOOT FOR LIFE address has always worked fine also, for over 10 years I have been on the web – that address is:
poesyco.bigfoot.com --- if YOU TWO have issues with your BULLSHIT BLOCKING, THEN YOU STRAIGHTEN THEM OUT – I CAN’T !!!
C. I AM A WRITER, AUTHOR, PUBLISHED POET --- my website address, URL is: www.authorsden.com/tomhyland ---
I have been a paying GOLD CARD member there for over 4 YEARS, with NO PROBLEMS!!! BUT NOW, you are BLOCKING THEIR DIRECT MAIL TO ME, AS A PAYING CLIENT WHENEVER I POST ANYTHING ON THAT SITE. THAT, DEAR COMPUTER GEEK, IS ‘INVASION OF MY PRIVACY’!!! THAT IS AN ABSOLUTE INTERFERENCE BETWEEN A CORPORATION AND ITS PAYING CUSTOMER! THAT, PROBABLY VIOLATES EVERY INTERSTATE LAW ON THE BOOKS! COMMUNICATION – TELECOMMUNICATION – TRANSPORTATION – FREE TRADE – FEDERAL TRADE COMMISSION???
D. AS FAR AS I CAN DETERMINE – SOMETHING STRANGE OR DIFFERENT OCCURRED WAY BACK ON APRIL 20TH, 2007 --- WHY THAT DATE? Because after getting sick & tired of complaints from my READERS ( I have over 175,000 hits in 4 years ) - AND being totally IGNORED BY ALL OF YOU CORPORATE GIANT GOLIATHS — I was able to obtain email from BIGFOOT’s WEBMAIL --- IT DOWNLOADED 1,989 EMAILS WITH THE OLDEST DATE SHOWING AS APRIL 20, 2007 !!! LET ME REPEAT THIS – ONE THUSAND, NINE HUNDRED AND EIGHTY-NINE --- YES, ALMOST TWO THOUSAND EMAILS THJAT TOOK ME HOURS AND HOURS AND HOURS TO DELETE !!
E. I DO NOT WISH, AND WILL NOT, DO SUCH AN EXERCISE AGAIN! TO THIS END, COPIES OF THIS EMAIL FROM ME TO EARTHLINK ( THE OFFENDING PARTY ) ARE BEING SENT TO: PEOPLEPC, BIGFOOT, AUTHORSDEN --- THE ATTORNEY GENERAL’S OFFICE OF CONSUMER AFFAIRS, OF THE STATE OF MARYLAND, TWO CONGRESS MEMBERS... AND LAST BUT NOT LEAST, MY ATTORNEY!
I AM ALSO TAKING THE TIME AND PATIENCE TO POST THIS ENTIRE EMAIL DIRECTLY TO MY WRITING WEBSITE, SO THAT 40,000 OTHER MEMBER AUTHORS WILL KNOW WHAT KIND OF POSSIBLE TREATMENT ANYONE MAY BE SUBJECTED TO, BY EARTHLINK --- EVEN IF THEY CHOOSE TO NOT DO BUSINESS WITH YOU!
IN CLOSING, I DO NOT APOLOGIZE FOR THE CAPS! I AM SCREAMING AT THE TOP OF MY LUNGS, BECAUSE I AM SICK, OVER-STRESSED, ANGRY, AND MAD-AS-HELL – IF EARTHLINK’S PROGRAMMING IS INCAPABLE OF DISTINGUISHING BETWEEN HONEST, LAW-ABIDING CITIZENS AND SPAMMERS, SCAMMERS, HACKERS, SMACKERS, WHACKERS --- WHATEVER, THEN WE ARE ALL ‘GOING TO HELL IN A HANDBASKET’ !!!
ALSO, IF THIS ‘INVASION OF MY PRIVACY’ IS AN EXAMPLE OF THE DICTATORIAL ‘PATRIOT ACT’ ---
GOD HELP US ALL !!!
MORE SINCERELY THAN YOU CAN EVEN IMAGINE,
TOM HYLAND... ONE PISSED OFF AMERICAN !!!
