Asking a favor.

To all my blog followers who have Twitter accounts, I ask a favor. I know this might sound weird, and no, I’m not asking you to follow anyone. Instead, I’m asking you to block someone and report them as spam. Why, well, there’s the most obvious reason, because they tweet the same link over and over, it fills up my twitter search, and I’ve seen enough of it! The other reason is because obvious libel is extremely obvious! Twitter doesn’t really have a policy on defamation or libel, but let’s look at Twitter’s spam policy:


◦ Spam: You may not use the Twitter service for the purpose of spamming anyone. What constitutes “spamming” will evolve as we respond to new tricks and tactics by spammers. Some of the factors that we take into account when determining what conduct is considered to be spamming are:
◦If you have followed and/or unfollowed large amounts of users in a short time period, particularly by automated means (aggressive following or follower churn);
◦If you repeatedly follow and unfollow people, whether to build followers or to garner more attention for your profile;
◦If your updates consist mainly of links, and not personal updates;
◦If a large number of people are blocking you;
◦If a large number of spam complaints have been filed against you;
◦If you post duplicate content over multiple accounts or multiple duplicate updates on one account;
◦If you post multiple unrelated updates to a topic using #, trending or popular topic, or promoted trend;
◦If you send large numbers of duplicate @replies or mentions;
◦If you send large numbers of unsolicited @replies or mentions in an aggressive attempt to bring attention to a service or link;
◦If you add a large number of unrelated users to lists in an attempt to bring attention to an account, service or link;
◦If you repeatedly create false or misleading content in an attempt to bring attention to an account, service or link;
◦Randomly or aggressively favoriting Tweets through automation in an attempt to bring attention to an account, service or link;
◦Randomly or aggressively Retweeting accounts through automation in an attempt to bring attention to an account, service or link;
◦If you repeatedly post other users’ account information as your own (bio, Tweets, url, etc.);
◦If you post misleading links (e.g. affiliate links, links to malware/click jacking pages, etc.);
◦Creating multiple misleading accounts in order to gain followers;
◦Selling followers;
◦Purchasing followers;
◦Using or promoting third-party sites that claim to get you more followers (such as follower trains, sites promising “more followers fast,” or any other site that offers to automatically add folllowers


◦If you send large numbers of duplicate @replies or mentions;
OK, they might not exactly be the same, but they say almost the same thing, some Twitter clients won’t let you send duplicated mentions.
◦If you repeatedly create false or misleading content in an attempt to bring attention to an account, service or link; Um… yeah, this happens every single day!

◦If you send large numbers of unsolicited @replies or mentions in an aggressive attempt to bring attention to a service or link;
Yeah, I’d say they’re unsolicited mentions, I was expecting a reply, but only because I’ve seen his other replies.

This whole thing just happens to be over the legal case I’ve followed for the past 5 months now, yeah… we both hold extremely opposing opinions over Lavabit. So much so that when I was about to debate him, my friend Mark said, “stupid people are stupid, and he won’t get it no matter what you say.” so, if you could please block and report twitter user Havokmon I would greatly appreciate it!
Now, one of the things he did when I was about to debate him, was call me” uninformed.” That’s one of the things that when I mentioned it, made even the children’s director at church say, “he was talking about the wrong person!” I counted, I have 16 case-related documents saved on my computer, that includes the 162 page unsealed district court records, that I’ve read twice now. I’ve also linked to probably well over 100 things on my linkblog, http://webgurl.me/tagged/Lavabit Needless to say, I highly objected to the term, “uninformed,” but that’s when he got blocked and reported, because I didn’t want to see anymore ridiculousness in the mentions buffer. I knew if I started a debate, I it would be an endless back-and-forth of pretty much nothing, because it wouldn’t matter anyway. Then there’s the fact that I’m not the best at debate, and I could possibly fail epically, making the whole situation worse. As for the twitter user above, I like to call him ” MR. all I do is tweet ridiculous things,” or “MR. ridiculous” for short.”
