If i’m being honest, i now see Mark as the new Adambro, except Adambro doesn’t try and take your money.
He’s gone from annoying me with his arrogance, his complete disregard for anybody’s welfare apart from his own, and his lies, to making me spit out my morning coffee with laughter when reading his latest comments.
And just to give a sample of how deranged he has become, check this corker of a lulzfest from the 20th June.
Ok, sounds reasonable if somebody is harassing somebody else on a regular basis.
Then he comes out with this….good God!
Just in case some of the readers are newbies, Mark calls Blogs the ‘Sociopath Diaries’
So ok, lets break this down.
Criminal Harassment: Define criminal harassment for us Mark! Maybe he means recording people on a PUBLIC cam site?
Maybe he’s talking about researching into casters criminal history?
Or maybe he’s talking about Doxxing. Oh wait, that can’t be it, he has said numerous times that giving out full names is not classed as Doxxing on his sites. You will also find, with a bit of research, that Doxxing, even giving out a persons full information is not illegal, unless it is done to encourage violence or threats of violence, or harm or distress to the person(s) involved.
So no, none of the above is classed as criminal harassment.
Going After Families: This is one i don’t agree with myself. Although apart from maybe the odd pizza or taxi called to them, have there been any families of casters that have been targeted?
Trying To Get People Fired: This is a strange accusation, even for Mark. Unless you are being extremely racist, or making threats of violence to people when on cam, how else exactly can somebody get you sacked from your job?
What are they going to do? Phone your boss and say “hi there, you know that Joe Bloggs that works for your company? well he’s on VaughnLive right now playing music and having a couple of beers after a hard days work”
That’s really going to get you fired!
Then again, you could do a Joe Walsh and yell some vile racist rants at people, and i suppose your boss might not like you representing his/her company, and then fire you.
But who’s fault is that, the Bloggers, or the culprit?
Trying To Get People Arrested:
As above ^^^^^
No Police force is going to come and arrest you unless you are breaking the Law.
Spreading Incredibly False Information:
Where? From what i have seen on other Blogs, and certainly here, all posts are backed up with either video or screencaps of the claims.
So just how can a recorded video be spreading false information? The camera never lies remember.
Screencaps are a different matter. Yes, they can be Photoshoped and edited, but if you look closely, you can nearly always tell if it’s been tampered with or not.
We Just Report What We See:
Well yes, we do just that. What i think Mark’s getting at here, is us Bloggers reporting things he doesn’t want reporting.
You know, things like how he takes VIP’s money under false pretences. How he tells you that by purchasing VIP you will get all these extra’s, that you still don’t get, months after he published them.
Is that not Fraud Mark?
The two points underlined could well be applied to the Vaughnsoft VIP shambles. No IRC, no Vaughn cams, no extended archive.
Both ‘receiving goods late’ and ‘less valuable than those advertised or significantly different from the original description’ could apply to VIP. Why didn’t Mark simply wait until he had coded all the advertised extra’s before charging the monthly fee?
I think we pretty much know the answer to that 😉
Or maybe it’s the fact we also report how Mark claims to have added all these new servers, yet a simple click on debug throughout his sites seem to suggest it’s the same IP address’ as before?
Maybe, it’s the fact that we Bloggers won’t be silenced, that makes Mark want us jailed?
Whatever his reasons, the hard fact is, all Marks allegations are false. So no, we can’t be jailed, and no, we are not going to go away just because you go on some crazy paranoid mass IP banning spree lol.
As you are fond of telling people……
“maybe you should go and read websites where you feel more comfortable’
