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.”

    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’
