CRIMINAL IN OUR MIDST!!
Steve and All,
I appologize for the nature of this post. I will not say any
more of this matter, but this needs to be said...
I think all of you know me well enough to know that this
"Steve Riddle" post is a pack of lies. Here are the facts...
"Steve Riddle" is an alias that is used by several people,
it is not a single individual. The most prominent of them is a White
Surprmicist hate monger named Harold Covington. I ran afoul of him about three
years ago when I was doing a series of articles called "Hate on the Web".
He "stalks" Civil War forums trying to find other racists, and cloning
addresses for his hate mail list. If he sees someone who has stood up to him
in the past, he and his friends, using a number of "names" will launch
personal attacks like the one you objected to. I have reported him to
the FBI and FCC, and have reported him to the moderators of this board. I am a
moderator on several boards that he has tried to slink into, and manage to
keep him banned. It's hard, because "he" uses about ten different IDs.
I can't sue him, because I have no idea what his real name
is, or where he is located. His posts all trace back to a dialup connection in
Seattle, Washington, or to one in Austin, Texas. If I could get a fixed
address or name, I'd bring charges for slander, libel and defamation of
Thank you SIR, for speaking up.
