To whom it may concern, August 30th 2011@6:07pm
I received harassing phone calls and emails from(firstname.lastname@example.org ) /telephone239-xxx-xxxx) or239-xxx-xxxx or 239-xxx-xxxx . This person tried to have my comcast service stopped because she /he did not like the information contained on my website. I filed a police report this morning case # 1100021944.
Comcast did not approve of her complaint and allowed my website to remain. They also found no merit to cancel my service based on one person’s opinion of my website. They also told me that I should contact Go Daddy and its policy’s and inform you of the ill intention’s of this person or persons. I own two websites and blogs with Go Daddy. the first website is: www.mysearchforjustice.com and the second site i purchased is www.mygingerbreadman.com
I looked up the legal department information on my website and I assert my rights to continue my websites with Go daddy as I do not fall in the category of “transmitting or otherwise connected with any spam or other unsolicited bulk which carries the penalties for immediate termination. ”
As far as the person harassing me and threatening to close my websites based on her opinion of my sites,I feel it would be a violation of my 1st Amendment rights, and a clear injustice based on my right for freedom of speech, and freedom of expression, The freedom of speech is according to wikipedia the freedom to speak freely without censorship.The freedom of expression is sometimes used synonymously but includes any act of seeking receiving and imparting information ideas regardless of e medium used.
The world summit on the Information Society (WSIS) Declaration of Principles adopted in 2003 makes specific reference to the importance of the right to freedom of expression for the “information Society” in stating:
“WE REAFFIRM, AS AN ESSENTIAL FOUNDATION OF THE INFORMATION SOCIETY AND AS OUTLINED IN ARTICLE 19 OF THE UNIVERSAL DECLARATION OF HUMAN RIGHTS THAT EVERYONE HAS THE RIGHT TO FREEDOM OF OPINION AND EXPRESSION, THAT THIS RIGHT INCLUDES FREEDOM TO HOLD OPINIONS WITHOUT INTERFERENCE AND TO SEEK, RECEIVE AND IMPART INFORMATION AND IDEAS THROUGH ANY MEDIA AND REGARDLESS OF FRONTIERS. COMMUNICATION IS A FUNDAMENTAL SOCIAL PROCESS, A BASIC HUMAN NEED, AND THE FOUNDATION OF ALL SOCIAL ORGANISATION. IT IS CENTRAL TO THE INFORMATION SOCIETY. EVERYONE, EVERYWHERE SHOULD HAVE THE OPPORTUNITY TO PARTICIPATE AND NO ONE SHOULD BE EXCLUDED FROM THE BENEFITS OF THE INFORMATION SOCIETY OFFERS”
Internet Censorship: “The concept of freedom of information has emerged in response to state sponsored censorship,monitoring and surveillance of eh Internet. Internet censorship includes the control or suppression of the publishing or accessing of information on the Internet.
Judge Stewart R. Dalzell one of three federal judges who in June 1996 declared parts of the CDA unconstitutional in his opinion stated the following:” the Internet is a far more speech -enhancing medium than print , the village green, or the mails. Because it would necessarily affect the Internet itself, the CDA would necessarily reduce the speech available for adults on the medium. This is a constitutionally intolerable result. Some of the dialogue on the Internet surely tests the limits of conventional discourse. Speech on the Internet can be unfiltered, unpolished,and unconventional, even emotionally charged, sexually explicit and vulgar-in a word “indecent” in many communities. But we should expect such speech to occur in a medium in which citizens from all walks of life have a voice. We should also protect the autonomy that such a medium confers to ordinary people as well as media magnates”
he continues later to say: ” Just as the strength of the Internet is chaos, so that strength of our liberty depends upon the chaos and cacophony of the unfettered speech of the First Amendment protects”
As with respect to user content: I believe that my site maintains adherence to:

j. does not contain or installs any viruses, worms, bugs Trojan horses or other code, files or programs designed to,or capable of disrupting damaging, limiting the functionality of any software or hardware.
Also as for user content: My belief is that go daddy will uphold the rules of user content which will allow users to view, post, publish, share, store,or manage (a) ideas, opinions, recommendations, or advice( “User Submissions” or (b) literary, artistic,musical, or other content, including but not limited to photos and videos (together with user submissions “user content” ) By posting or publishing User Content to this site or to the services found at this site, you represent and warrant to Go Daddy that (i) you have all necessary rights to distribute user content via this Site or via the Servic

The person who is/ was trying to close down my websites today must have a personal vendetta and they are bent on limiting my ability to bring justice to a very horrid 8 -9 year period in my life. I am trying to provide information that may be helpful so that no one has to endure: bulling, identity theft, fraud, theft, and many other unfortunate incidents I have had to endure.
I have never received any bad comments for the blog entries.. ever, (some weird ones… ) but no one has complained before today. I believe this person who is trying to shut down my website may have a personal relationship with the girl who bullied me, or the man who threatened to kill my mother, who caused me to lose 30 pounds, caused me to have a nervous breakdown, and may possibly be involved in the entire identity theft and stealing of three businesses I have owned or worked as partners. they may even be involved with additional criminal activity. I trust that one person’s personal opinion will not infringe on my freedom of speech, and my first Amendment rights because she or he did not like me, or if I used a curse word, or that I identified my bully, or mentioned my sisters or family in my blog entries. (these were the complaints she used to comcast and comcast did not honor her request.
“the right to produce a thought- or refuse to do so- is as important as the right protected in Roe v. Wade (to give birth or abort..) The First Amendment protects the communication of ideas. That protected right of communication presupposes a capacity to produce ideas. As a practical matter, therefore, the power to produce ideas is fundamental to our cherished right to communicate and is entitled to comparable constitutional protection.”
Please keep this letter in my file so that she/he or their “group” will not be able to try to harm me or my websites again. Please, contact me immediately if anyone does try to violate my rights and shut down my website.
Could you have someone from your legal team look at my websites( www.mysearchforjustice.com and www.mygingerbreadman.com and analyze the sites based on following your own terms and conditions? Please, contact me with your findings.
I love having websites with go-daddy and I have really enjoyed blogging information and opinions. From some of the comments I have received over the past months…. people are very receptive of the content and honestly I have never had anyone have a problem with my blog until now. I told the person who was harassing me on the phone that they did not have to read the blog if they did not like it. This is America and that allows us freedom of choice for viewing websites or blogs. I also asked for a list of what was so damaging.. she/he replied “all of it” she /he wanted the entire blog and website shut down. I don’t think that is a reasonable request. Bullies who threaten should not be allowed to make up rules for all of us to live by based on their own personal beliefs and desires. I also don’t think that because bullies have more financial resources than their victims they should be favored by any of the authorities but should adhere to the same rules and laws that govern America. i do not like criminals or others who are allowed to continue to harm people. I think that is totally unacceptable. Moreover, in this insistence, it violates my constitutional rights.
Thank you for your kind attention to this letter/email!
