Deadline Friday-You Will Need A Word Press Account To Comment
Posted by Xena
Caterpillars, butterflies, moths and all creatures great and small;
As most if not all of you know, this blog is subjected to continual racial harassment, hate-speech, and threats of defamation unless I delete this blog or change it to report solely on black-on-black crime. Word Press provides options to moderate comments. However, the perpetrators circumvent those options by using proxy IP addresses.
When the comments first started in September 2012, I ignored them as mere harassment. Then I was threatened that the perpetrators would “ruin” my reputation unless I stopped blogging. Still, I paid the threats no attention and kept minding my own business. They then made up names for me that they purported being my real names – yes, plural. They couldn’t decide what name, if any, was my real name. They ended up harming and harassing others who are not me.
Along with that, they took to posting comments on other blogs alleging that I’m “racist.” They cannot support that allegation. Their latest justification for calling me “racist” is because of the name of this blog.
Well, I just happen to like the song “Black Butterfly” by Denise Williams, the main reason is because the lyrics include that “a dream conceived in truth never dies.” All caterpillars go through the same process of transformation. Some are black, some are white, some are yellow, some are multicolored. It makes no difference.
In January 2013 after blacklisting their IP addresses, I sent complaints to their internet service providers. That stopped all besides one person who then switched internet service providers. Another complaint was sent to that internet service provider. I changed then to the option that only those with Word Press accounts could submit comments.
Miss Filth actually opened a Word Press account and blog and while continuing to submit racially offensive and threatening comments here, mocked that my efforts to stop her reduced the number of comments so either way, she thought she was winning in their effort to have this blog inactive. I sent a report to the proper authorities. The vile comments stopped and I went back to the option of allowing comments with signing-in with a handle and email address.
In or about May 2013, a comment was sent here warning that “Captain LJS” joined their group. The “Captain” boasts about using proxy IP addresses to conduct his filthy harassment while keeping his identity secret. From the comment sent here, in pertinent part:
We have also joined up with the “CaptainLJS”….and others (N*****s) and M. M******r … I am V.P. and proud to say so!!!!! THAT’S V****e!! Well I could the initials game all night. Lots more where that came from. Toodles.

“Captain LJS” is also known by other handles in addition to his real name. He’s the same person who several months ago filed malicious copyright infringement complaints against Blackbutterfly7 in effort to have Word Press delete this blog. His efforts went as far as to complain of copyright infringement on his gravatar that is included in comments he submits. Word Press denied all but one of his complaints, which gave me opportunity to challenge the one remaining. I did so, and he then had 30 days to file a complaint in the federal court. He did not do so. Word Press restored the one remaining photo. His plan failed.
Evidently, not finding a proxy IP address website that would allow him to access this blog, that person started sending racially offensive comments directly through his Comcast IP address. After submitting a complaint to Comcast, he then continued harassing through the computer network of the California State University in Fresno. That meant yet another complaint. He then used a Cricket phone to access public Wi-Fi.
Last week, that person was served with a complaint for a restraining order by someone who is also subjected to relentless harassment and false accusations. After the offending party was served, someone associating with him, (and no doubt at his direction or encouragement), decided to take out their frustration by spamming this blog with racially offensive comments.
The articles don’t matter. I can write about the sun rising, and the individual still sends racially offensive comments. What I share about my personal life, they use it in attempt to mock or place me on the defense. They do not deserve any explanation pertaining to my personal life and their mocking and lies do not define me.
Now finding it difficult to find a proxy IP address that allows them to access this blog, and/or has not been blacklisted, they send the same comment numerous times through different proxies hoping to hit one that will send their comments to be moderated. In other words, they want me to see their filth.
When the same comment is submitted numerous times through several different proxy IP addresses hosted by different companies, that is intentional harassment.
What I’ve done is moved the racially offensive and harassing comments from spam to the moderation queue to retain as evidence. More investigation is being conducted and the hosting companies for the proxy IP address websites are being notified to preserve the evidence.
In the state where I reside, harassing and obscene communications are included in the state’s hate crime statute. Currently, over 200 such comments are in the moderation queue of this blog. Of the 200, about 45 were submitted in the last 5 days.
Word Press gives the option to only allow the submission of comments by those who have Word Press accounts. This will require signing-in through your Word Press account in order to comment.
It should prevent comments from being submitted through proxy IP addresses. It will also prevent the submission of comments that use fake email addresses, as the cyber-extortionists are known for doing. It’s been a long time since I signed-up for a Word Press account, but if I remember correctly, the email address has to be valid and verified by Word Press.
This may or may not be a temporary arrangement. There are other things pending at which I am not at liberty to share.
The majority of Blackbutterfly7’s subscribers are also Word Press bloggers who already have Word Press accounts. However, there are people who comment here who do not have gravatar or Word Press accounts, and their contribution in discussions is valuable.
I do not know if having a gravatar account is the same as having a Word Press account. I do know that those with a gravatar account can click “like” on blogs whereas those who do not have a gravatar account or Word Press account cannot. Maybe someone here can answer that.
So, I humbly, and respectfully ask that if you post comments here, to open a Word Press account so you can continue doing so. Word press recently opened a page eliminating some of the previous confusion because some people thought that they had to open a blog in order to have a Word Press account. You do not.
