Richard Stallman and Bruce Perens Defamed by Troll

Posted in Free/Libre Software, FSF, GNU/Linux, GPL, Kernel, Microsoft, Novell, Patents at 7:13 pm by Dr. Roy Schestowitz

Summary: Serial harasser of Free software luminaries may be put on their blacklists, but the verbal abuse continues

A reader of ours has just revealed some rude E-mails from someone who abused Boycott Novell for a long time.

I was provided an e-mail from a source that has been dealing with David “Lefty” Schlesinger, aka Stonemirror, Aka Lefty, Aka Aqualung93. First I told Lefty to stop harassing me and then I was included in his unrelated criminal complaints against Mr Nath/Mr Hughes. It appears that since nobody takes Lefty seriously, he now attempts to bring Richard Stallman and Bruce Perens into his exaggerated and highly defamatory claims.

It is understandable that some people wish to defend a pro-software patents strategy, GPL disdain, and companies like Apple and Novell. This is not an excuse for making defamatory claims and saying things like “Richard “My holy duty is to rape women who’ve never used EMACS” Stallman“. There is no rape, virgins can also be male, and it was so obviously a joke. This perp who cried in front of Open Source visionary Bruce Perens because he didn't join his anti-Stallman crusade is just trying to tarnish the GNU brand which is almost synonymous with Richard Stallman and this is just another example of the FSF smears that we wrote about last week. Novell employees sometimes do that too.

“Novell employees sometimes do that too.”Anyway, in more important news, some months ago we saw Novell experiencing trouble with Microsoft code inside Linux. It “looks like they’re flushing some pretty heinous bugs out of the Linux 2.6.32 branch,” says our reader Ryan, whose claims one can find in the latest IRC log. Is Novell still struggling to convince Microsoft to actually maintain its own code that benefits Microsoft? The same code whose inclusion Microsoft was spinning after a GPL violation was found [1, 2, 3]?

“Well, it’s in the brand. The image you create around the brand. That’s why I need you in this company. Because nobody in this company, or in this industry, really understands that. And if we can have the perception, I can create the reality. With the combination of the reality and the perception, nobody will ever beat us.”

Bill Gates

    Open Letter to Reverend Anne L. Schlesinger of LeGrand Methodist Church

    Dear Reverend Anne Schlesinger:

    This is a difficult matter to bring to your attention. But I do
    not believe that your husband David N. “Lefty” Schlesinger has made
    you aware of certain illegal and immoral activities that he is
    engaging in regards to his pornographic and harassment/stalking
    websites. I do not know if you are even aware of Lefty’s 16 year
    career of stalking and harassment, which seems to have begun with
    his menacing threats and extortion demands on the Waldorf school
    teacher Kathy Sutphen. I doubt someone of your position in the
    Church *could* be aware of such horrendous activities and not stop
    them immediately and by any means. Currently, Lefty under the name
    ‘stonemirror’ and in his own civil name is harassing several
    parties unrelated to me. This in addition to Lefty even of this
    morning contacting some friends of mine I haven’t even talked to in
    months and harassing them. Worst of all, Lefty has decided to
    increase his harassment of my person by purchasing from my ex-
    partner several home made pornographic photographs over ten years
    old which he has now illegally published on one of his many
    harassment websites, http://www.extinct-marsupial.org . Here is a
    link to the photo in question, one of many:

    [as of 2/20 the pornographic material has been temporarily forced offline with the intervention of law enforcement]

    This material was never public in any way until your husband David
    “Lefty” Schlesinger made it public in order to harm and stalk my
    family.
    This not only illegal harassment and cyberstalking on Lefty’s part, it is civil
    court actionable on several counts including willful invasion of
    privacy and infliction of emotional distress. If you can stop your
    husband Lefty, perhaps we can avoid involving the police and/or
    civil attorneys in this matter. David needs your help, his actions
    are not those of a sane and sober man.

    The following WHOIS link has your and David’s home address on it,
    499 Balch Way, Ben Lomond, CA. This proves that the site extinct-
    marsupial.org is the creation of Lefty and Lefty only. Though in
    fact, Lefty makes it a public boast that he owns this
    stalking/harassment site with its stolen, unauthorized pornographic
    photos.

    marsupial.org&prog_id=godaddy
    Lefty also runs other websites devoted to harassing my family
    such as
    :
    http://stonemirror.wordpress.com

    Here are other links which document Lefty’s harassment of myself,
    my extended family, and several other unrelated individuals:

    homophobia/
    http://www.phoronix.com/forums/showthread.php?t=20559&page=21

    Anne: your husband Lefty has been called out as mentally
    unbalanced by his own work colleague the internationally regarded
    Bruce Perens.
    I believe only you can get him the help he needs, and make him stop
    this vile and disgusting and illegal activity he is engaged in,
    driven by his obvious mental illness.
    Reverend Anne, will you do something
    to help your husband and also help his stalking victims escape his
    insane actions?
    sincerely,
    The Victims of David “Lefty” Schlesinger aka ‘stonemirror’

What Else is New


  1. Heiko Maas and the State of Germany Viewed as Increasingly Complicit in EPO Scandals and Toxic UPC Agenda

    It is becoming hard if not impossible to interpret silence and inaction from Maas as a form of endorsement for everything the EPO has been doing, with the German delegates displaying more of that apathy which in itself constitutes a form of complicity



  2. With IP Kat Coverage of EPO Scandals Coming to an End (Officially), Techrights and The Register Remain to Cover New Developments

    One final post about the end of Merpel’s EPO coverage, which is unfortunate but understandable given the EPO’s track record attacking the media, including blogs like IP Kat, sites of patent stakeholders, and even so-called media partners



  3. Everyone, Including Patent Law Firms, Will Suffer From the Demise of the EPO

    Concerns about quality of patents granted by the EPO (EPs) are publicly raised by industry/EPO insiders, albeit in an anonymous fashion



  4. Yes, Battistelli's Ban on EPO Strikes (or Severe Limitation Thereof) is a Violation of Human Rights

    Battistelli has curtailed even the right to strike, yet anonymous cowards attempt to blame the staff (as in patent examiners) for not going out of their way to engage in 'unauthorised' strikes (entailing dismissal)



  5. Even the EPO's Administrative Council No Longer Trusts Its Chairman, Battistelli's 'Chinchilla' Jesper Kongstad

    Kongstad's protection of Battistelli, whom he is supposed to oversee, stretches to the point where national representatives (delegates) are being misinformed



  6. Thanks to Merpel, the World Knows EPO Scandals a Lot Better, But It's a Shame That IP Kat Helped UPC

    A look back at Merpel's final post about EPO scandals and the looming threat of the UPC, which UPC opportunists such as Bristows LLP still try hard to make a reality, exploiting bogus (hastily-granted) patents for endless litigation all around Europe



  7. EPO Critics Threatened by Self-Censorship, Comment Censorship, and a Growing Threat to Anonymity

    Putting in perspective the campaign for justice at the EPO, which to a large degree relies on whistleblowers and thus depends a great deal on freedom of the press, freedom of speech, and anonymity



  8. Links 25/3/2017: Maru OS 0.4, C++17 Complete

    Links for the day



  9. Judge and Justice Bashing in the United States, EPC Bashing at the EPO

    Enforcement of the law based on constitutional grounds and based on the European Patent Convention (EPC) in an age of retribution and insults -- sometimes even libel -- against judges



  10. Looking for EPO Nepotism? Forget About Jouve and Look Closely at Europatis Instead.

    Debates about the contract of Jouve with the EPO overlook the elephants in the room, which include companies that are established and run by former EPO chiefs and enjoy a relationship with the EPO



  11. Depressing EPO News: Attacks on Staff, Attacks on Life, Brain Drain, Patents on Life, Patent Trolls Come to Germany, and Spain Being Misled

    A roundup of the latest developments at the EPO combined with feedback from insiders, who are not tolerating their misguided and increasingly abusive management



  12. It Certainly Looks Like Microsoft is Already Siccing Its Patent Trolls, Including Intellectual Ventures, on Companies That Use Linux (Until They Pay 'Protection' Money)

    News about Intellectual Ventures and Finjan Holdings (Microsoft-funded patent trolls) reinforces our allegations -- not mere suspicions anymore -- that Microsoft would 'punish' companies that are not paying subscription fees (hosting) or royalties (patent tax) to Microsoft and are thus in some sense 'indebted' to Microsoft



  13. Links 24/3/2017: Microsoft Aggression, Eudyptula Challenge Status Report

    Links for the day



  14. Bernhard Rapkay, Former MEP and Rapporteur on Unitary Patent, Shoots Down UPC Hopes While UPC Hopefuls Recognise That Spain Isn't Interested Either

    Germany, the UK and Spain remain massive barriers to the UPC -- all this in spite of misleading reports and fake news which attempted to make politicians believe otherwise (for political leverage, by means of dirty lobbying contingent upon misinformation)



  15. Links 23/3/2017: Qt 5.9 Beta, Gluster Storage 3.2

    Links for the day



  16. The Administrative Council of the European Patent Organisation Has Just Buried an Innocent Judge That Battistelli Does Not Like

    An innocent judge (never proven guilty of anything, only publicly defamed with help from Team Battistelli and dubious 'intelligence' gathering) is one of the forgotten casualties of the latest meeting of the Administrative Council (AC), which has become growingly complicit rather than a mere bystander at a 'crime' scene



  17. Nepotism at the European Patent Office and Suspicious Absence of Tenders for Big Projects

    Carte blanche is a French term which now perfectly describes the symptoms encountered in the European Patent Office, more so once led by a lot of French people (Battistelli and his friends)



  18. “Terror” Patent Office Bemoans Terror, Spreads Lies

    Response to some of the latest utterances from the European Patent Office, where patently untruthful claims have rapidly become the norm



  19. China Seems to be Using Patents to Push Foreign Companies Out of China, in the Same Way It Infamously Uses Censorship

    Chinese patent policies are harming competition from abroad, e.g. Japan and the US, and US patent policy is being shaped by its higher courts, albeit not yet effectively combating the element that's destroying productive companies (besieged by patent trolls)



  20. 22,000 Blog Posts

    A special number is reached again, marking another milestone for the site



  21. The EPO is Lying to Its Own Staff About ILO and Endless (Over 2 Years) EPO Mistrials

    The creative writing skills of some spinners who work for Battistelli would have staff believe that all is fine and dandy at the EPO and ILO is dealing effectively with staff complaints about the EPO (even if several years too late)



  22. EPO’s Georg Weber Continues Horrifying Trend of EPO Promoting Software Patents in Defiance of Directive, EPC, and Common Sense

    The EPO's promotion of software patents, even out in the open, is an insult to the notion that the EPO is adhering to or is bound by the rules upon which it maintains its conditional monopoly



  23. Protectionism v Sharing: How the US Supreme Court Decides Patent Cases

    As the US Supreme Court (SCOTUS) starts delivering some decisions we take stock of what's to come regarding patents



  24. Links 22/3/2017: GNOME 3.24, Wine-Staging 2.4 Released

    Links for the day



  25. The Battistelli Regime, With Its Endless Scandals, Threatens to Crash the Unitary Patent (UPC), Stakeholders Concerned

    The disdain and the growing impatience have become a huge liability not just to Battistelli but to the European Patent Office (EPO) as a whole



  26. The Photos the EPO Absolutely Doesn't Want the Public to See: Battistelli is Building a Palace Using Stakeholders' Money

    The Office is scrambling to hide evidence of its out-of-control spendings, which will leave the EPO out of money when the backlog is eliminated by many erroneous grants (or rejections)



  27. In the US Patent System, Evolved Tricks for Bypassing Invalidations of Software Patents and Getting Them Granted by the USPTO

    A roundup of news about patents in the US and how the patent microcosm attempts to patent software in spite of Alice (high-impact SCOTUS decision from 2014)



  28. “Then They Came For Me—And There Was No One Left To Speak For Me.”

    The decreasing number of people who cover EPO scandals (partly due to fear, or Battistelli's notorious "reign of terror") and a cause for hope, as well as a call for help



  29. As Expected, the Patent Microcosm is Already Interfering, Lobbying and Influencing Supreme Court Justices

    The US Supreme Court (SCOTUS) is preparing to deliver some important decisions on cases with broad ramifications, e.g. for patent scope, and those who make money from patent feuds are attempting to alter the outcome (which would likely restrict patent scope even further, based on these Justices' track record)



  30. Intellectual Ventures -- Like Microsoft (Which It Came From) -- Spreads Patents to Manifest a Lot of Lawsuits

    That worrisome strategy which is passage of patents to active (legally-aggressive) trolls seems to be a commonality, seen across both Microsoft and its biggest ally among trolls, which Microsoft and Bill Gates helped create and still fund
