I tried to post this on one of the Hangfire threads, but when I hit submit it came-up "thread not found". So I'll paste it here as it's own topic. The lynch mob mentality that has permeated this site in the last day, has made me ashamed to be a member. Hey, who's got the rope? Some of you must take your lessons from the gun-grabbing democrats and the media. It's been stated several times that Mcuzi's site came down because of money reasons. But some of you, in your hate and zealotry, feel if you keep accusing Hangfire it will finally stick. I don't know what Hangfire did or didn't do, but the filth posted by some members since last night has certainly pushed me firmly into his (Hangfire's) camp.

Crookshanks, You need to relax. Most of the "get a rope" comments were meant in jest; this is an internet board, not the town square. Also, most, if not all, of the anger centers around HF's claim that he contacted the FBI, NAACP etc., not that he shut down the site. I'm not waiting on a response from HF, he, HIMSELF, claimed that he had contacted those organizations. What else do you need to hear, that he was just joking? Did not sound like a joke to me.

Spite notwithstanding, just when is someone allowed to contact LE? If Hangfire really believed Porn was being sent over the internet, in his name, he had every right to take action. Now he's being accused of trying to bring down ar15.com. His list of supposed crimes keeps growing. Sound familiar? Kind of sounds like the strategy used by people like the Clinton's and Diane Feinstein whenever they want to villify guns and gunowners.

Both of those knuckleheads have brought heat down on themselves. They've both clearly violated the Telecommunications Act of 1996. HANGFIRE did it by threatening McUzi. Title V Subtitle A, Section 502. McUzi did it by posting a homosexual porn picture on his main page, in full view of anyone under 18. Title V Subtitle A, Section 503. [URL]http://www.fcc.gov/Reports/tcom1996.txt[/URL] The text is very long and boring, so just copy/paste it to somewhere and grep it for Title V. Can any attorneys let us know if libel is an issue here?

Link Posted: 8/14/2001 6:41:30 AM EDT
Look carefully ! The porn picture is INSIDE the site and not on the main page. (you have to enter through a disclaimer and age validation section first) Looks like HANGFIRE is again the Villain! Can HANGFIRE sue because someone found that homo picture of him?

That's a very good point singlestacker. I was sent a link to the pic via email and I regret to admit that I didn't notice the pathname in my location bar. :/ Goatboy, I had no idea about how much of this back-stabbing crap was going on until today. I'm going to keep my "know-it-all" ass out of this one, I don't belong in the middle of this fight. I'll reserve my own personal judgement until HANGFIRE responds directly as to his intentions re: the threat of libeling McUzi. Under my interpretation of the Telecom Act, McUzi isn't responsible for anything that someone else posts. I.e, HANGFIRE.
Link Posted: 8/14/2001 8:13:44 AM EDT
Goatboy, it goes beyond his ever trying to "take this site down". In your reply to me in one of the locked threads you stated you were confident in this site and the fact that there was no wrong doing for HF or anyone else to harm it. I agree. However, it also involves the members. He may not be able to screw with the site but he could damn sure make one of more of the members lives miserable by taking info to some anti group or the ATF because he gets pissed over something they say about him. We all know that ATF does not play by the rules and do not concern themselves with trivial matters like evidence. Someone drops a dime on you and they may be all over you whether you have done something wrong or not. We've seen this in the past. fighting among ourselves is one thing. But bringing in the enemy is another matter entirely. The question is do you and the members want someone here that has demonstrated that they will stoop to that level in order to get even with someone that pisses them off? I know I don't and based on the number of post on this matter it would appear that a lot of the members share that opinion.

Good point, Gunslinger. You and I have butted heads once or twice, but calling the aforementioned authorities on your ass NEVER crossed my mind. Hangfire, did you indeed contact the authorities listed earlier in this thread because you were angry with McMouthy? Alot of us would like to have an answer, if you haven't noticed...
Link Posted: 8/14/2001 11:44:48 AM EDT
[b]Posted by GoatBoy Getting the NAACP and so forth involved is a big deal, but I have the feeling he is NOT going to come out and admit it at this point, whether he even addresses this thing or not is a question mark. (I think at this point he realizes its a no win situation and he has a big bulls-eye on his back.) -- GB

[/b] I did respond to the post by mcuzi this morning but alas it was deleted. In short this is my position: Mcuzi stole my given name, my address, my e-mail, my telephone number and coupled them with my alias then attached the forgoing with porno/racism. I protested and was subjected to unsolicited porno spam and the misuse of my Ar15.com account. I told mcuzi and company if they did not stop I would contact people to stop them. They did not and I did. I made telephone calls to the FBI the NAACP and BLACKMANWITHAGUN.COM. I made those calls to inform those entities that I had never logged on to mcuzi.com. That the "drawing of Jesus receiving fellatio from a child" was not my doing, neither was any of the subject matter on that site. I further explained to them that I had contacted the "owners" of the site and they would not put a stop to the unauthorized use of my real identity nor would they stop the porno spam. NOBODY steals my identity and uses it for prurient purposes with impunity. Nobody porno spams me with impunity. mcuzi asks his followers to spam your email with filth and garbage http://ubb.mcuzi.com/cgi-bin/ultimatebb.cgi?ubb=get_topic&f=10&t=000026

As long as Hangfire warned them first, I have NO PROBLEM with the actions he took. What else could he do? Empty threats are just that. They won't get action.
Link Posted: 8/14/2001 12:07:32 PM EDT
I agree. What one can do in a position like that?
Link Posted: 8/14/2001 12:11:24 PM EDT
so thats it? a one sided story and everyone is right back on his bandwagon....i find it hard to believe after seeing post after post,thread after thread on mcuzi against everything hangfire just wrote. if its the truth im sorry man, if its not you will get yours. im to open minded to go by one story, sorry if i sound like a dick. hard proof not hear say.

I've been one of the more vocal members on this issue. Not because of the McUzi site or my love for it but rather the "rules" of engaging one of our own in these little Internet wars were violated by HANGFIRE when he brought in out siders. I would like to think that this is something that I would never do. However, given what HANGFIRE is claiming (and we have as much reason to believe him as we do McUzi) it would appear that McUzi broke the "rules" first and went well over the line with him. Under those conditions I can certainly see why HANGFIRE felt the way he did. Does it condone calling in out siders? That is a quetion that only each individual can answer for themselves. But as far as I'm concerned I can't really say as I blame him under the circumstances and will get off of his ass. HANGFIRE, don't lead this to believe that I want to take long, hot showers with you. I still don't like your ass.[:D] BTW, I saw one of your post in an unrelated thread and started to respond but instead took the time to look through the old threads about this until I stumbled on to this one. You might want to ask Goatboy if he has any objections to your posting this in a seperate topic so everyone sees it. The big bitch that a lot of people had was the fact that you were not responding to the allegations. I'm afraid with it buried here most members will not see it and still hate you more than you deserve. Not that you do not deserve to be hated but maybe not this much.
Link Posted: 8/14/2001 1:49:51 PM EDT
I first got on this board about the time that McUzi left. One of the first things that I noticed was that Hangfire did have a way of stirring things up. on the other hand, where's the crime in that? I see it as a case of free speech, love it or leave it. Frankly, I think that a larger crime was committed when several of us were willing to draw conclusions and crucify the man before he explained himself. I'm not pointing any fingers at any one, just presenting the facts. Just my take on things.

When there is URINE in the water and the TURDS are doing what comes natural, I prefer to stay on the beach.[smoke] How does one respond to so many many threads? The events started over 60 days ago and continue still. Mr. King- We have been notified of the situation regarding the domain and contents of www.mcuzi.com by our client,[b] Mr. Greg Robert. As i'm sure you know, he was the financier behind the afforementionied site.[/b] We were informed that you filed false reports to law enforcement agencies for purposes of retriburion against the proprieter of mcuzi.com. Doing this is a felony, Mr. King, and will surely cost you in court. People do go to jail for filing false reports that cause material damage, like yours have done. We have compiled a dossier of your postings on the AR15 site, and it is clear you had a vendetta. Please provide with the contact information of your council so we can proceed with suit. Jim Lauer

You don't seem to understand. We aren't here to play the little internet games. Furthermore, you filed false reports and gave misleading information to federal agencies- It isn't a local matter, Mr. King. We don't have to "come on down"- We can "bring you up here" whether you like it or not. If you wish this to be our next course of action, I hope you have a resivior of cash as large as Mr. Robert does to support an ongoing legal action for the sake of proving a point. You have 24 hours to reply to this stating your intent of reasonable discourse on this matter. If not, we proceed. That simple. I was informed that you posted my letter on a website- If looking like a stand up fellow to your internet freinds is more important to you then getting hauled into court on serious charges, this will be a very easy case for us.

Hangfire, If the above letters are for real, the contents may be tantamount to federal extortion. It's against the law to threaten criminal prosecution (or the outside influence thereof) in order to achieve a civil gain. It's a felony and a federal court would have jurisdiction due to the internet connection. NO, I'm not telling you to run to authorties and turn this guy in, rather, I'm just letting you know this 'cause I don't want to see even you get jerked around by some dink on a power trip.

It is just bullshit. Real lawyers do not ask who to send a cause of action to, they file in the court and pay the Sheriff to deliver the subpenna. If the guy they represent has all the dough maybe they can get him to buy them a spell check program.
