nangbaby, sprite


I posted a video on YouTube yesterday, and immediately, I get responses from other people stating that they don't understand what I'm writing about or why I'm leaving.  So let me make this very, very clear.

I am leaving because people have performed the following actions:
  • personally attacked me with slurs, racial, ethnic, and otherwise
  • shared my personal information with the world in a breach of privacy
  • openly wished for and threatened my death
  • collectively tarnished my name -- both screen name and real name -- amongst their professional peers by spreading rumors as fact
  • solicited and received money while levying false claims against me
  • repeated this cycle of actions with progressively larger profile targets (Robert A. Howard, Tinsel Korey, Keenspot, Travis Corcoran, etc.)

The primary people who have done this are as follows:
There are countless others who have performed these actions in concert with them.  They are not the reason why I am leaving.  Anonymous trolls don't get my goat, and the followers of these individuals only annoy me.  Professionals who defame and ruin the lives of people whom they disagree with is another matter entirely, because they use their money, authority, and privilege to add weight to their claims.  I simply cannot fight that as long as these people receive financial and moral support for dehumanizing me.

I'm not providing any more links to support what I have written.  I've documented their actions in previous entries to no avail, and I shouldn't be obligated to defend myself against slanderous personal accusations.  Again, if you have any questions, send them to me (GMail has a great spam filter, so I don't worry about linking to my e-mail address publicly) or send a message to me on Twitter.  I'll let people comment in this journal.  Just don't expect a reply here.

It's over.
