I have removed blog entries 1118172812, 1119023016, 1119380133 and 1155180100 from public viewing today. The reason why is that the organization discussed within said entries has frankly pushed me too far - and they have extensively harassed my family members at both their home and their jobs. When my mother is afraid to answer her own phone because of the actions of these lunatics, I cannot sit idly by.
For those of you who know what I'm talking about, I haven't discussed 90% of the developments here as an attempt to stay out of it - but after the phone calls my parents received on Thanksgiving... well, I can't let this keep effecting them. Ironically, this organization never actually came after me beyond a few poorly worded e-mails, as it was always my family they harassed. It was never my phone that rang, never my job that was threatened... They did the most despicable thing a person can, and while it churns my stomach to acquiesce to their demands, I can't let this continue to hurt innocent people.
So yes, their ruthless intimidation has worked. I have removed my entries (which did not violate any law, and were still 100% truthful), and let them have their little, shallow, meaningless victory.
This. ends. now.
Your organization's name will not appear on any public area of my site, and the discussion is over (If any comments to this post reference the name of the organization they will be deleted as well - heck guys, just don't comment on this entry period).
But if the phone of any of my family members rings one more time, if one more e-mail gets sent, hell.. if either I or my family so much as see one of your representatives on the street, the entries go back up, and I start considering other steps.
So, let it drop, never say another word, and this is all over and you get your victory. One more peep though, and it's game on.
