Mine: "Dean Koontz means: People who would never dream of owning any type of “toy” breed dog." I can agree with that.

I am fascinated by this. And, of course disturbed.
Tom Green originally shared:
This morning , around 9:00 a.m. I was subjected to a rather massive cyber-bullying attack that has yet to calm down. Being someone who firmly believes in the free flow of information and opinion on the Internet, my beliefs have become rather strained.
To recap what happened:

• There is a comedian, Tom Green, who every now and then muses about the fact I have the Twitter handle @TomGreen while his is @tomgreenlive and he "wonders" why I won't give it to him.

• This morning, on the Opie and Anthony show, he raised it again and sort of told people to ask me for it because I would get mad.

• At about 10:00 am, noticing a ton of mentions on Twitter, I was aghast to discover that I was being bullied by people demanding I give up my Twitter handle.

• A couple of minutes later someone posted my phone number and extension at the College where I work and someone else mentioned Opie and Anthony had tried to reach me at that number.

• Realizing this was gathering steam, I immediately contacted my Dean at the College and told him to kill my extension on the College phone system.

• Naturally Tom Green jumps in with a “Who me?” attitude and really does nothing to calm the storm that is hitting my Twitter account.

• Tonight I am being harrassed by one individual who is essentially stalking me and posting things like scholarships I support and give out at the College, my books and essentially holding my professional life out to ridicule.

To give you a sense of what I have had to put up with today, I have posted a screen shot of three that just landed as i was writing this . They are quite similar to the well over 500 similar libelous and slanderous mentions I have received so far today.

Obviously this sort of thing shouldn't happen but it does and fighting back is a losing proposition. Comes with the turf and is something I learned to live with many years ago. What I didn't expect was the posting of my College phone number in a public forum by someone I have never met and who is using it for malicious purposes. That, to me, crosses a rather serious line.

The line is "Fair Comment". You are entitled to an opinion good or bad about my work and I have been both praised and lambasted over the years. Yet there seems to be an inability among some to comprehend the line between fair comment and slander or defamation is pretty well-defined.

I am pretty sure you will get a sense of this in the inevitable comments this post will attract.

What I seriously don't understand is how Opie and Anthony and Tom Green can essentially unleash this sort of thing on someone and then stand back and deny they did it. When will they start acting like the adults they are and actually take responsibility for their actions? When will people in the public eye actually wake up and think first about the people about to be affected rather than some twisted ratings gain or a last gasp at fame that long since left them behind.

What really irritates me is how the people making these statements about me have to hide behind the anonymity of their Twitter handles. I am out in full view of the public and they are saying things to me they wouldn't dare say to my face or in a forum where they are clearly identified?

Finally, just where the hell is Twitter in all of this? When a user of your service is being subjected to an unwarranted and unprovoked assault upon his character, what recourse does he or she have with you guys?

Oh well. Such is life in cyberspace. There is so much good out there and it is disappointing to be subjected this sort of abuse

I love that #smxwest2012 sent out an email update and included info on power strips and wifi access. They get how those critical things are to its target audience.

Absolutely. There is nothing worse than trying to tweet from a conference on low battery and spotty wireless.

Does anyone else have issues with IE and having the +1 button on their wbsite? Only in IE are users getting a warning pop=up message asking if they are OK that the site has the with it. And I can't realistically expect users to add the site to their trusted sites to make the pop-up go away so I want to make it go away for them. Grrr.

Donnie - Great point. I do love that site. If the possible solution I heard about this past weekend doesn't fix it, then I think the Mozers are my best hope :)

Right up my alley!
Don't settle for pre-made taco shells! Here's how to make your own taco bowls with some tortillas and a regular muffin tin:
The next time taco night rolls around, instead of serving the same old pre-made hard shelled tacos, pull out your muffin pan, preheat your oven, and reach for that bag of tortillas in the fridge.
