Hmmm, be careful for what you beg? You just might get it?

Thanks Blues. Christmas early this year.

Thanks to Nat.



Oh, I replied after careful consideration:
You don't represent Jack you daffy twit.

"Txbluesman" ( is not an entity. Unless you can demonstrate to me that you represent an actual person or fictitious person (such as a partnership, LLC, or Corporation), your contention is ludicrous on the face.

I apologize and retract the above if it turns out you do have a client in association with this matter, whose name is "Jack."

Is it common practice for lawyers to get in touch *via e-mail*? That seems a bit unprofessional, I guess, but I've never, ever had any official dealings with a lawyer, so I don't know how they conduct business.

It just seems like a professional letter on law firm letterhead would seem the proper method... or perhaps even a phone call.

Malonis is a real attorney. It seems it's believed that intimidation is in order.

It's silly really, I had contacted Malonis' alleged client because on that clients site, threats were being made, against me.

The content of the letter was essentially, if you countenance that kind of thing I'll go legal. The reason would be to discover (if possible) what troll was behind the threats.

And so, I got this charming missive.

I think it's a great gift for persons who wish to sue the blogger who runs Coram, because there are a few. They now have his legal representation and they can go to town if they want to.

Having provided that pathway even though that was hardly what I set out to do, I am content.

What I wanted actually, was to have such threats removed, to show that even the Sock Puppet that is "Blues" wasn't going to use his site to transmit threats.

Instead the troll decided to see that as a threat, towards him.

No Blues, it was never a threat, it was always a promise. If I think for a second that a disaster brought in my life may be traceable to someone Blues knew, I would be asking who first Blues was and then who the friend was.

That's apparently a threat.

From a sock puppet.

Who provides a platform.

For threats.

For Malonis? Yes. It's cheap ;)

The Pharisee said...

I like my lawyers, cheap.

Dale Kemp said...

It is common practice for Malonis.

Did you get one of those emails she sent to everybody in her address book when she changed law firms?

An acquaintance of mine did because she communicated with him via email to threaten him too if I remember correctly.

The Pharisee said...

Nah, never got one of those, I rarely mail others, on the "other side."

Frankly, at the moment, I'm trying to brush them all off.

Malonis and Blues have made a huge blunder.

Because they have both acknowledged a "lawyer-client" relationship, I get to treat Malonis as Blues representative when I want to. She purports to know and represent Blues.

I don't have to treat hear claims seriously when I don't want to. The entity she purports to represent is ill defined.

For all I know several people contribute to "Coram," it might account for why it is so hard to nail down who Blues is.

To prove to me she represents Blues, Malonis must identify Blues.

For me to communicate with her as a proxy for Blues, I can take her at her word. I can switch horses whenever I want to.
