LEVI PAGE AND HIS LATEST WHOPPER

lpwhopperWell, gee, Levi Page decided to join the Troll bandwagon………again. Levi Page got his facts wrong……………again. Nothing new. He now goes on Twitter and tells the big lie that I claimed to have been working with the FBI on a missing child case.

Sorry Levi, your lies are catching up with you once again. I never made such a claim. First of all in each of the missing child cases it was either a CITY or COUNTY law enforcement agency that was in charge of the cases. The FBI became involved in the cases either because A: In the case of Melinda Duckett, she was being charged with embezzlement from the bank she worked for as well as with identity theft and B: to ASSIST local law enforcement in the Caylee Anthony case.

And no I am not ‘butthurt” from being banned from Websleuths. It is only a forum and it is also NOT the ONLY forum on the internet. Also I can still and do READ there. I stopped participating in true crime chats simply because the forums and other websites have degenerated into pissing matches between the various owners and administrators of the sites.

The truth of the matter is that the true crime social media community is falling apart. Most of the sites are run by housewives that do not have a clue how to run a business or administer something as simple as a forum or blog.

The Websleuths lawsuit is a prime example. BOTH of the owners did not have the sense to draw up a simple contract spelling out who is in charge of what and who can or cannot do what with the funds generated by the website.

One of the most basic things the principals of a business does, and Websleuths IS a business, is to go into detail as to how it is run and who is responsible for the various duties within it.

Neither of the parties in the lawsuit did so and thus they have created a situation where outsiders are having a field day mocking them for the mess they have gotten themselves into.

A majority of these social media blogs and forums have strayed from being places to chat or become informed about various subjects of interest to places where a gang of frustrated housewives can take out their personal lives against each other or the vary people who make their sites possible.

Levi Page is no better than the rest of these morons. He rants and raves about tired old fairy tales that are a decade old and that he knows are untrue and have been debunked as well.

Levi Page has claimed more than once to have been hacked and even had a case or two of identity theft where someone broke into one of his financial accounts. Because of this, Levi Page knows how easy it is to break into people’s accounts and impersonate them. He also knows full well that the majority of accusations against me originated from the product of hackers from Anonymous and the well known 4chan.com who is famous for hacking into various websites for the “lulz” as they put it.

A classic example of this kind of hacking is Melinda Duckett who was charged by law enforcement for doing exactly that.

What I find interesting about Levi Page’s never ending lies about me and others is that once he posts his little lies and his rants surrounding them, he almost immediately deletes them.

The reason is, of course, because he is violating Twitter rules and he has to delete the comments for fear of having his account suspended if I were to turn him in. Levi is wrong and by deleting those accusations, he is proving he is both wrong and a liar.

For someone who is supposed to be on the rise in the world of mainstream media, his conduct is both pathetic and immature.

It is also highly unethical and would get any professional journalist fired before their antics subjected their employer to the liability caused by his misconduct.

I am also not “butthurt” since every time Levi Page posts his whoppers, he is proving that it is he that is the stalker and not anyone else. Nobody talks about him until AFTER he pulls such a stunt as he did this morning.

Levi Page simply cannot move on to more productive pursuits. He, instead engages in this moronic trolling and in the process demonstrates to the world just what a fool he really is.

He has once again provided entertainment for those who watch him destroy his career before it even begins.

Stay tuned

websleuthsAs many of you out there know, I have been posting over on my other blog and had discontinued posting at this one. What I had not realized was that a good number of people were still reading this one in spite of me not writing here. It turns out that the main reason for the visits were due to the ongoing discussion about the lawsuit between the two owners of Websleuths.com.

The core of one of the discussions seems to be how I obtained the information regarding the lawsuit and if I were taking sides with one of the parties involved. Other issues had to do with some of the terms I used within the blog as to the primary reasons for the lawsuit and any specific criminal actions that may or may not have been inferred at that time.

For those who may not be familiar with my writings on this subject, I post the links to the articles here to aid in bringing everyone up to speed.

A short time before I published this article, I had heard rumblings about a lawsuit through various social media sources, mainly through a blog from which I am now barred from reading. Once I learned a few details of the suit and obtained documents through a Public records request, I wrote the following article:

https://murtwitnessonelive.wordpress.com/2013/08/04/trica-griffith-being-sued-by-websleuths/

I also wrote another article about Trica Griffith and Websleuths.com

This article had to do with the accusation that Trica Griffith was giving out the personal information of those who were members of the forum, mainly those who were part of a mass banning that occurred several years ago. I wanted to point out exactly WHO made the accusation and also how the information about one blogger in particular was discovered:

https://murtwitnessonelive.wordpress.com/2013/04/27/tricia-griffithowner-of-websleuths-com-accused-of-giving-out-personal-information-of-former-subscriber-to-forum/#comment-7487

Let me do my best at trying to set the record straight on certain matters.

First, I am not taking sides in the lawsuit. I did not then and I am not now. I did allow people to comment on the blog and people are still welcome to do so although the blog suffers from a glitch or two that sometimes messes up the comment option.

tgPeople might have the mistaken impression that I had turned away from Trica Griffith since it was she who banned me from the forum some years ago. I stated back then that it is her right to ban or welcome anyone she wishes to the forum since she is part owner of it and can run it as she sees fit. I still have a lot of respect of Trica and admiration for what she has been able to do while operating the forum.

Next: Use of the term embezzlement. When I read through the court transcripts, I drew my own conclusion that this is an accusation of misappropriation of funds which defines what embezzlement is, in most cases. It is only my opinion, of course, and not a direct accusation.

What I do feel is going on here is a fairly common business dispute that occurs more often than people may or may not realize. The partners in this case have a disagreement and one has chosen a civil action as a way to attempt to resolve it.

It is also natural in these sorts of things for people to be loyal to one party or the other. There are those who are aligned with Trica and those who are aligned with Sue. I have no idea who will prevail. In a majority of these disputes, there is mediation and an out of court settlement. These things rarely go to trial.

The amount of damages being sought is rather small. It should be an easy matter for a resolution to be reached that would appease both parties and allow everyone to go forward with their lives.

There is an underlying problem, however. I find it rather disconcerting that someone decided to record what should have been private telephone conversations and then pass the recordings around to parties that should not have had a vested interest in hearing them.

There is a rule of law known as ” a reasonable expectation of privacy” which means that all parties to certain conversations have an understanding that what is being said will remain between them and not be disclosed to outsiders.

This clearly did not happen here. The practice of publishing what was understood as private conversations has been going on in the social media world as well as in the outside world as well. There has been some high profile examples of this in the public sector in the recent past.

There seems to have been a loss of ethics and common decency over the years with people engaging in savage personal attacks against each others in the social media realm.

It is both a disgrace and a shame. Most of us operate forums and blogs as a hobby and not as a means of income. It is a sad state of affairs as to what is going on in social media today.

Websleuths.com is an institution. It is one of the most respected websites in the true crime arena on social media today. I can only hope that all sides can resolve this dispute and help preserve Websleuths as the place to go to obtain information on current subjects regarding true crime and that the forum can continue to evolve and grow.

Feel free to comment and ask any questions of me that you wish.

Stay tuned
