From my inbox: Shutting down FR's support - extortion attempt
received via email | 10/23/2009

Hello Jim,

Since you've done what you've done to another reporter of mine when others seem to be allowed to post back to their blog or sites viablogger section, I've taken the liberty to gathering information about your website.

1. I've determined the need for all that money a month is invalid. I run a major website, and do not need that much.

2. You seem to be running the show, not a major building with staff.

3. Donations like this should be going elsewhere, needed, not into YOUR pockets.

4. I am having a press release written on FR, urging citizens to stop wasting their money on you, and to donate for a better cause, elsewhere.

5. I will not stop, unless the price is right. Yes, this is a bribe, because I will not screw you over had you not screwed me over. But it can change with swift talks.

6. You are not a true AMERICA LOVER.

7. Have a nice day, expect your vendors to pull out soon and your donations frozen.

Reads like satire. I don’t buy it for a second.

Watch his FR statement on video here and see if you think this is a guy capable of satire. Your skepticism is healthy, but in this case we have a delusional, mentally ill borderline personality who appears ready to go fully psycho.

I knew Martin was a nutcase, but didn’t realize how much of a nutcase. He should stick running his scams instead of trying to spam his spats over the internet.

IANAL but that statement seems to me to provide the grounds needed for a lawsuit (or possibly even a criminal investigation). Have you talked to your legal-beagles on this?

From his website;

“People will start battling the known sources like SCWXA to get into first place,” ended Martin. “This reminds me of starving actors following the known ones around to gather dirt on them to ruin and slow their career down. It is pretty pathetic that we have these jealous people out there. However, that is complex life.”

Who is this arrogant jerk? Based on his e-mail address, is he doing this on public money? It is obvious that this guy has a political bias on the left. Is he even consequential to deserve an answer?

Or, is this guy simply too pathetic to be worth any serious counter-efforts?

As always, the best to you and your whole family, and friends, and organization.

Would a guy like that try to extort money from you? Why I never...

I believe this is refered to as “torturous interference”.

BTW, was this sent from a personal email .... or from a company email. If it is the later, you might want to communicate with the owner of the domain and ask to speak with their legal department ... so you can determine if this communicated threat is their official position and if the individual was acting as an agent of that company.
