n. pl. hy·poc·ri·sies
  1. The practice of professing beliefs, feelings, or virtues that one does not hold or possess; falseness.
  2. An act or instance of such falseness.

Our dear friend Val is such a kook. Here is her latest "News Release", I love how she uses that term like any actual publication is picking it up and running it.

These are my favourite bit's, first she says this:

"A is for act like a man. Don't hide behind a fake name to throw around insults and launch harassment campaigns. Have the courage to use your real name, and take responsibility for your actions. It's what grown ups do."

She then begins to fire off a bunch of info she had to have gotten from the profiles of 2 posters on Stern Fan Network even though the site administrator confirms that no one using her name or her published email address has signed up for an account there. That's quite the impressive set of cajones you got there Ms. Smith.

Next she says:

"C is also for crimes like criminal harassment and defamatory libel which are both illegal under the Criminal Code of Canada. Start harassment campaigns that make a person feel threatened and you could be charged, and once you are, your real name becomes public. Criminal harassment includes repeated emails, threatening or obscene email, live chat harassment called "flaming", leaving improper messages on message boards or in guest books, sending unsolicited email, repeated telephone calls. Defamatory libel is writing something that is designed to insult a person or likely to hurt that person's reputation by exposing her to hatred, contempt or ridicule. "

And follows that up with:

"Jakyll is a computer geek who started his own business last year in a small city about an hour northeast of Toronto. He maintains his own vanity web site on which he posts pictures of himself. He looks more like a herd animal than a Jakyll, but everyone is entitled to their Walter Mitty fantasies."

Ya, that's not too insulting. People in Glass houses Valerie, People in Glass houses...

She has also apparently filed a complaint with the Toronto police because of all the bad things people are saying about her on the Stern Fan Network. WAAAAHHHHHH People don't like me. WAAAAHHHHHHHH, baby want a soother?

Part of me wants to read what this dipshit's blog and half of me knows I don't need another reason to be pissed off.
I'll try and save it for a rainy day when I'm already in a bad mmod so she doesn't end up pissing me off and ruining a perfectly good mood.

ahhh but there in lies the rub, she doesn't have a blog, she skips entirely the step where the rational person vents about a situation so that others can commiserate with her or point out that she is a pompous windbag. She jumps immediately to the step where she writes 4 page letters with 40 pages of supporting documentation to mayors, chiefs of police, attorneys general etc.

She posts these letters along with news clippings on her website. She circumnavigates the laws against republishing articles by claiming to be an education and research website basically allowing her to trample all over any copyright she wishes.

It wouldn't shock me if she stumbled upon this page and filed a complaint against me for calling her a pompous windbag. Just so we're clear Val, that's my opinion and is protected speech, even though if you had your way the Charter of Rights and Freedoms would cease to exist and Big Brother would tell us what to think and say.

Wow, I actually went and read her shit and all I can think is - some people make me wish I was illiterate.
Now, does she actually work for a government type agency? Because that thought scares me, a lot.

Jason Doan said...

I don't believe she is permanantly employed by any government organization, but she has recieved funding from them in the past for some of her work, most notably Action Agenda: A Strategic Blueprint for Reducing Exposure to Media Violence in Canada which was commisioned by Ontario's Office for Victims of Crime.

She should really relocate herself to somewhere south of the border, she'd make a great general in George's thought police.

It's always comforting to know that we've got crazies writing papers from government agencies... sheesh.
