2opinions”. I have never met or spoken to Julie Stewart so it is very difficult to have malicetowards someone I have not met or spoken to. Certainly, I feel a great deal of annoyanceregarding all the time and energy she has made me expend in the last two months. But beingannoyed and feeling malice are two very different feelings and intent.You should know that I have come close to reaching out to her twice before she continued toengage in her irrational, self-destructive behavior regarding the handling of this entire debacle.She has revealed herself to be overly emotional and slightly irrational in my view. Her turncoatand threatening behavior towards a letter recipient that both settled with her (and she profitedfrom) who had sympathy for her and advocated for her has been disturbing to hear about.Regarding our use of the word “extortion” within ExtortionLetterInfo.com (ELI), the ELIForums, and her association with that word, that has been explained many times ad nauseum.From the very creation of ELI in 2008, we have defined our use of the word “extortion” andphrase “legalized extortion” as being descriptive terms. We have always used the word in adescriptive, colloquial manner, not the literal definition which conveys a criminal act. Further,two months ago Oscar and I prepared a video that once again explained our use of those terms.You should know that the word “extortionist” almost never comes up as it personalizes thedescriptive term. All of this is quite self-evident to any literate person that actually reads whathas been written IN CONTEXT of ELI and the ELI Forums.Regarding the supposed lowered reputation standing of your client, might I suggest that sheherself caused much of this so-called damage all by herself? If there have been damages, mostof it has been self-inflicted. Despite her supposedly being a knowledgeable Canadian lawyer,she appears to have little or no insight in how to defend her position or reputation. If anything,she has continued to provoke us and the ELI community with her annoying harassment actionsand ongoing legal threats.Thus far, I have had to endure the following:
Email accusations that we engaged in defamation, libel, and slander.
Submitted a false DMCA complaint to my hosting provider which I challenged with acounter-notification letter to reinstate the original content.
Submitted multiple false DMCA complaints to Scribd causing our online account to bereputationally damaged. Again, I had to file counter-notification letters to reinstate thecontested content.
Inciting other lawyers to engage in harassing behavior against my hosting provider andour Scribd account by filing false DMCA complaints forcing me to file counter-notification letters to reinstate that content.
Has engaged in sneaky, harassing behavior towards my business associates so that theywould influence or coerce me in removing content about her.
Contacted a lawyer to “speak” with Oscar (who does not own or have administrativepowers over ELI or ELI Forums) but not me (who does own and have administrativepowers).
Making the false assumption that our prior attempts to appease your client were signs of our weakness which seems to have emboldened her to push even further by hiring you tospeak on her behalf.
