Happy Thanksgiving

It's not Thanksgiving until Arlo sings.

If Twitter can find and suspend these troll accounts, why can't Google?

Official Twitter spokesperson statement: The Twitter Rules prohibit violent threats, harassment, hateful conduct, and multiple account abuse, and we will take action on accounts violating those policies.

It's time for Google to step up to the plate and enforce their user content and conduct policy. It's time for them to stop pushing all the onus on users to report (and then take little or no action based on some algorithm) and start taking real action on finding and removing these individuals!

It's that time of the year again, and this year Santa's got a new look to his website!

It's That Time!

Elves Assemble! The Secret Santa website is a GO. You're sure to find a few bugs that we did not discover. Please be patient and report any issues then be patient while we work through them.

All previous records have been scrubbed from the database so everyone will need to register again.

Let's do this!

Why Mary Ellizabeth Williams is leaving Twitter.

This is only a small excerpt, I urge you to read everything she has gone through over the years.

When you look through a troll’s timeline, you rarely see a single focused target. They often spew in all directions, like a lawn sprinkler of vomit. Usually cloaked in their anonymity, Twitter’s dedicated trolls yell at strangers all day like it’s their job. Even when I got into a perfectly civilized disagreement with a male public figure, a swarm of his supporters swiftly smelled a fight and descended to tell me to die. I’ve spent my adult life trying, in my own small way, to be more signal than noise. And being persistently subjected to threats and abuse and just plain idiot drool is not what one would call a “user-friendly” experience, nor is it, by the way, what the founding fathers had in mind with the freedom of speech thing. I wouldn’t keep going to a restaurant that yes, often has great food but also regularly serves up plates of garbage. And when a business fails its customers, the customers leave.

Support comes in many forms - pledge to become a patron - share to help spread the word - do both and be twice as awesome! 
Well, here they are. The drug addicts, the prostitutes, the battered and abused women and they landed in a program that shows no mercy -mine.

And I need YOUR help. This Patron site is for one purpose only - to get the book published and get the financing to tackle prison reform in my area. I want this book published. I want to be able to dedicate most of my time to writing and speaking out about the broken system we all finance.

I want people to know that criminal reform is not only possible, I've been doing it for years.

But it takes time and it takes money.

I am attempting to get a minimum of 500 patrons to pledge $2.00 minimum a month. That's all. That's enough to quit one job and work more on this book and the next and the next.

Sharing also helps. You can read the first 2 chapters for free and if you like what you read, I'd be happy to have you as a patron.

Thanks so much. :)

Love Secret Santa? Hate it? Take a quick survey to let him know how you feel.

Please share with others so they can talk to Santa too, thanks! 
Greetings from the North Pole!

The Elves and I would like to gauge the interest in continuing Secret Santa this year.

We'd very much appreciate it if you could take the time to fill out this brief survey.
