Blogger Recognition Award

 

Curtis of Iridiumeye has nominated me for the Blogger Recognition Award.  His tag line is

“Reviewing the best movies and series you’ve never heard of.” “

I also reblog posts that might be of interest to my blog followers. Read the rest of this entry

After Stealing My Word Press Identity, Former Writer Threatens To Have This Blog “Shutdown”

I’m cross-posting here from the flightattendant blog because the threat made by Santiago Rodriguez pertains to this blog.

Santiago Came To Me Asking For Help

In May 2014, a man named David Piercy filed for a restraining order against Santiago Rodriguez.   The court granted Piercy a temporary restraining order against Santiago.   There was a hearing scheduled for a ruling on the permanent restraining order.  As I understand it, there were exchanges on Twitter where Santiago became aware that bloggers and others had allegedly been harassed by Piercy.  Someone pointed Santiago in my direction and he reached out to me.

Subsequently, Santiago asked that I put his name on the border of my blog, We Hold These Truths To Be Self-Evident, as a writer.   This is how it happened …
