My Website, My Property
This website and the blog contained herein are my private personal property.
I let you visit here because I like your visits — even if I hate you as a person. People call me a hateful person, but I’m not: as mammals, we are a competitive species from birth. We move with caution against other creatures as we are uncertain if they are here to help us or attack us. That’s what human beings are.
I verbally attack with gusto, with my uncanny wit that offends most but attracts the rare few who know that my words are mere comedy. You need a strong intellect to be able to weather my writings. In them are some of life’s greatest secrets, but only those who can maintain composure and not get offended instantly will be able to reap what I am sowing.
When I posted about how LendInk was taken down by a bunch of asshole indie authors, I didn’t realize I would get thousands of hits. It’s funny to me.
One commenter on that post is “chazb” who remained anonymous, but gives himself great thanks in being a part of taking down LendInk. At first, I thought I should attack this guy with all my power — and I’m pretty powerful. I’m a high status guy with tens of thousands of fans and friends throughout the world.
But yet upon looking for chazb, I realized that I am far too powerful and he is far too weak. So I am going to try a little sociological test, and I hope you can help me.
With chazb I had no information about him: a throw-away email address, an IP address, and a username. Not much to go on. I did some searching for his IP address and discovered it’s in Florida, but it’s a dynamic address that changes, so there’s no history logs of his whereabouts online. The email address doesn’t pull up any searches.
I moved to the next step: the username. chazb. Chaz Bono? Probably not. He/she doesn’t live in Florida, either. Chaz is a nickname for Charles. Let’s try Charles B. Indie author. I didn’t have a book title, but he said he took 25 years to write his first novel. That gives me a little bit of wiggle room.
So I did the searches: Amazon, Barnes and Noble, Facebook, Twitter. Little by little, I beat down the systems I use to find my enemies and wrestle them to the ground, where I can lay over their virtual corpses in victory.
As I said, I didn’t find someone that I could attack, even though he admitted he was part of the LendInk take down.
So join me today in trying to do something that is the opposite of what I usually do: instead of crushing my opponent who is my near equal, I need to toughen them up so that they can someday reach my level of power and status. Then, and only then, can I properly fight them by mockery or other verbal aggression.
chazb is Charles Wesley Buckett. He has a wife, and they live in Florida. Their home is small, but it appears he has horses.
One more positive: it appears he has horses or loves them.
I like horses. I like Florida. I appreciate marriage. 3 points in his favor.
Charles Buckett is the author of an e-novel called “Special Times, Special Summers“, (link to Amazon, not an affiliate link!). It’s 125 pages long, and it’s a story about a 15 year old boy’s crush on a young girl. Not my type of story, but at least Mr. Buckett took the time to actually write a book. That’s another point in his favor.
Charles Buckett, under his pseudonym chazb, visited my blog and left this initial comment. Click through it and see how he talks about his lawyer, and why he attacked LendInk, and why he refuses to admit that he was wrong. Thankfully, Mr. Buckett didn’t actually post anything publicly, so he never actually aggressed against LendInk. And yet, he actually throws out a small threat against me:
I could retaliate. I could write to your hosting service. I could show them your foul speech and apparent slander. I could insist that you be taken down and threaten legal action if you aren’t removed. But I am not doing that. And do you know why?
There we go with the fucking legal action bullshit. This is what’s wrong with this world: instead of debating, we want to go consult with shyster lawyers. As if those bastards haven’t done enough damage to a once-agreeable society.
So I thought I would make a mockery of Mr. Buckett, but my soft side shows me a man who is honestly trying. He didn’t aggress against LendInk, he never posted publicly that he wanted them shut down and it doesn’t appear that he sent any DMCA or other attacks against the website.
My Opponent is unworthy of battle
Charles posted on his Facebook a few months ago that he needed cash to keep his Internet and TV running:
On the flipside, Mr. Buckett posted about how “politically correct speech” is anathema to him:
Proving My Point: Copyright is shit
So to prove my point, I am going to promote his book. I request that all my readers, fans, friends, family, and visitors to this site go ahead and drop $1.99 to help this guy out. Let’s see if he sees the light.
Maybe, with enough purchases, I can convince him to relinquish his e-book file to me to host on this website for people to download freely to try it out. I bet if he does that, he’ll see his sales skyrocket, even though people can get it for free.
I’m counting on you to dip into your pocket for $1.99 and join me in showing this copyrighter that there’s no need to worry about protecting your creation, because the Internet is about promoting your creation in hopes that people will support you AFTER they have consumed, not before.
Will you join me?
The book is available here: Special Times, Special Summers by Charles Buckett Even if you don’t have a Kindle e-reader, you can download free software for your web browser, iPhone, iPad, Android and other devices to read the book.
If you purchase the book and review it in my comments section below, I’ll send you something free out of my own pocket worth more than $2.
Let’s show these copyrighters that they’re wrong, that copyright stifles promotion and creativity and sharing of information. Let’s blow the doors off the idea that an author is best served by the law, the government, and the shyster lawyers that make it impossible for a new author in a small town to get discovered.
Please comment below if you bought the book, or why you don’t want to buy the book. Do not aggress against Charles Buckett, I want to teach him a lesson about why copyright is just for shyster lawyers and the big book “distributors” and “publishers.”
