Well, I haven’t had the time to play.. been busy.. you know how it is I get tied up in research, and my little Maggie has been sick and caring for her is a full time job. Then all the phone calls coming in .. I’ve have a couple Old Friend’s calling, just tickled me pink to talk to them, don’t you just love comparing notes with someone you have not talked to in a while, and they sure did catch me up on a few things. 😀 Love it.. I would suggest you guys start your adventure to day by reading the following.
Involving the Internet for the State of North Carolina, The law, S46, can make it an actual class 2 misdemeanor for violation, depending on the severity, and whether the person accused of slander/libel
§ 14‑47.1. Communicating libelous or slanderous material through an electronic medium.
What is .. Libel is published defamation of character, as opposed to spoken defamation of character, which is slander. Libel can expose a person to hatred, shame, disgrace, contempt or ridicule; injures a person’s reputation or causes the person to be shunned or avoided; injures the person in his or her occupation.
Libel in journalism places a person in a better and safe position when compared to other cases of libel. In journalism libel, it is not very easy to establish a libel. The defenses that can be raised in case of a libel in journalism are:
2. privilege; or
3. fair comment or criticism.
Now, the question is.. If everything that is put out is the truth, then is it libel?
Now, dealing with Altha’s little story she linked with me, my question about this picture she painted.. Why did her husband believe so earnestly everything she claimed I had said or done? Sure doesn’t sound like love and trust in that household, now does it? Maybe she’s confessing that her husband knows her so well, that he had no doubt the stories she made up were the absolute truth. And after all altha you stated he so believed, that he took her computer away! Now, Altha I must ask which husband are you talking about? The Sood husband or the other Husband named Michael? You have to tell me things if you want me to back you up on your lies.. Well the reality is, these things probably do happen in her life, she just interchanged my name for the women who are really calling her hubby. You know how crazy’s do, they mix lies with truths just to make it look good, and so they can remember their own lies. Methods of the crazy’s.
Another issue, if I were doing all of these things, on the phone lying to your husband, and defaming your character, why didn’t you call the phone company and report me.. You know, you could have filed a police report.. and if and when they snatch up my phone and note that no call or calls to you or your family or anyone else in Missouri or Kansas were ever made.. The muck of shame will be all over your whiskers .. Gotta be careful what you accuse others of doing.. You know the truth is always just a finger tip away..
Oh the executioner.. it was disguised as a Granny for a day and came back as its old slimy serpent self.. Had fun the last couple of days have ya.. What is confusing, where and on what basis do you people think you tore someone up with your Granny? Are you joking? Or do you really have the ability to convince yourself you accomplished something? Hate to tell you.. But I do realize that I must be one of the most important issues in your life. Gosh your followers must up your stats tremendously when you write about me.. Makes me so proud to know My Fame from your site is going viral. Thank you so much for putting my name on the charts. wow. Oh yes, I don’t do snakes, if I find one in the yard, I take the hoe or shovel to it, I am of the opinion, there is no such thing as a good snake!!
As for Murt, he has his choices in life.. He can ignore anything you put out over there altha, along with your trolls.. and if he doesn’t want any involvement in other peoples crap, just ignore it. He’s a big boy he can fight his battles well..
I wanted to leave a few descriptions with you guys today, things to think about.

January 9, 2003
This is an excellent article on the subject of bandwidth theft written by Richard Lowe and Claudia Arevalo-Lowe, of Internet Tips and Secrets. The site is full of valuable information and this article is reprinted with permission in its entirety and credited and linked to the authors.

Sins of The Internet: Bandwidth Stealing
Virtually everyone who has created a web site is guilty of this sin at one time or another. This happens when you include an image, sound, movie, zip file or other similar object directly in your web pages (note that linking to a web page on another site is NOT bandwidth stealing). Linking directly to an object on another server by any means (again, excluding HTML-type pages) is bandwidth stealing, unless that is specifically allowed by the terms and conditions of the host provider.
Why is this an internet sin? It can be difficult to understand, but basically, what you are doing is stealing from someone, taking money from them without their approval or knowledge.
How it works is simple. Let’s start with a free host such as GeoCities. The way these hosts make money is by displaying advertisements on web pages. They are paid a small amount for each ad which is displayed. Well, if you include that image directly off the Geocities server you are using their resources and communications channel but NOT showing their advertiser’s banner. Thus, GeoCities is not earning any money, yet they have to pay for the server time and the communications costs.
This is even more direct for those of us who are paying for our bandwidth. Let’s say you purchase 4 gigabytes a month from your host. You will be charged more if you exceed that amount. It’s easy to see how a few hundred image displays on other web sites can directly cost the site owner more money.
It may not seem like it is a serious thing to include a photo on your web page directly from someone else’s server, but nonetheless, each of these small hits add up. When dozens, hundreds or even thousands of people do the same thing, a web host can find itself needing to purchase new servers or communications lines to handle the load.
Even worse is those webmasters who link to large ZIP files (for example) on other web sites. They think they are being clever and hurting no one, but their damage is actually very extreme. For these are often not just small, 10kb images. They can be multi-megabyte downloads. Each click on these monsters is a major draw on the bandwidth of a host.
For example, it’s a quite common problem for sites which host desktop themes and wallpapers to find their bandwidth costs going through the roof without a reasonable explanation. When they finally investigate their log files they find other web sites linking to their ZIP files.
Sometimes you will steal bandwidth and it’s not really your fault. This can happen when you, for example, join a webring. You will emailed a few lines of HTML code to add to your web page. Many ringmasters will include references to their own images directly in these HTML snippets. The result? Bandwidth stealing.
This was particularly illustrated recently when a major free web host named angelfire.Com concluded that bandwidth stealing was unacceptable. They decided to block these activities (it is possible to detect when this occurs) and replace all remotely loaded images (stolen images) with their own logos. It was amusing in a sad kind of way to see how many webrings violated angelfire terms and conditions in this manner when the ring graphics were all replaced by the angelfire logo.
Another common mistake is to link directly to sound or video files. You’ll see this on movie fan sites or, for instance, sites about the Simpsons. It’s bad enough that many of the sites violate copyright laws … they also often steal bandwidth.
Why isn’t linking to a web page considered bandwidth stealing? Because the page is the one thing that you are supposed to link to on a web site. This gives the web site owner and host exactly what they are trying to achieve – exposure of their particular message. You are more or less free to link to any HTML-type page that you want to because that’s what the web is intended to be. A vast number of pages all linked together in many different ways.
Some people and web site owners have questioned the validity of linking to any page within their site. They claim that you must link to their home page, or in one particularly obnoxious case, actually charge a $50 fee for linking to one of their pages! My belief is if these people don’t want others to link to their pages they should get off the web. The entire structure of the internet is intended to be the free interchange of information at a page level. Don’t like it? Use a different media or format (Adobe PDF files, for example).
The point of all this? To avoid this internet sin, simply load the image, zip file, sound, video or whatever on your own website. The bandwidth on your site is yours to do with as you please. And oh yes, link to any web page that you want. That’s the way of the web.

Sociopath Vs. Psychopath
What is the psychology behind these disorders? These and many other questions raged in my mind and I began to search for answers.
Definition of a Sociopath and Psychopath
A sociopath is a person who is plagued with a personality disorder that is marked by traits of anti-social behavior. On the other hand, a psychopath is a person who has an antisocial personality disorder that is seeping with an aggressive, perverted, criminal mind with an amoral behavior that lacks empathy and remorse. You may find both are a part of antisocial personality disorders and find no difference between the two. But the facts state otherwise. There are marked differences between a sociopath and psychopath.
Anti-social Behavior Personality – Sociopath and Psychopath
Many think sociopaths and psychopaths are people with no emotional feelings towards others and no regard towards the laws of the society. The Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, 4th edition (DSM-IV), is a manual that is referred by mental health professionals when diagnosing mental illnesses. It is seen that the DSM-IV has labeled both the conditions, sociopath and psychopath under the section of antisocial personality disorders. It states that there is a pervasive pattern of disregard for violation of the rights of others that occur since the age of 15 years. The following factors are indicative towards antisocial personality:
The person fails to conform to the social norms and lawful behavior that is shown by the repeated occurrences of arrests by the police.
The person is deceitful and is used to lying repeatedly, uses aliases and cons people for personal gain and pleasure.
They are impulsive and do not plan for the future.
They are easily irritated and become aggressive, which is indicated by their involvement in physical fights and assault cases.
They have little or no regard for the safety of others and even their own.
They are irresponsible people, who cannot sustain themselves with consistent work behavior and cannot honor financial obligations.
These indications are highly accurate and valid by the DSM-IV. They are applicable to both sociopath and psychopath. But these indications clearly fail to give a more clear distinguishing factor between the two antisocial behavior and many times may lead to unfortunate treatment conclusions.
Difference Between Sociopath and Psychopath
There are very few differentiations between sociopaths and psychopaths. There are many medical dictionaries that consider them synonymous. Both, sociopaths and psychopaths are involved in antisocial behavior that is related to extreme violence. Though psychiatrists group sociopaths and psychopaths together, criminologists have given some difference between sociopaths and psychopaths.

What is the Difference Between Harassment and Stalking Under North Carolina Law?
It is vital to understand how “harassment” and “stalking” are defined in North Carolina law when discussing stalking charges.
Harassment is conduct that is directed at another person that torments, terrorizes or terrifies them and serves no legitimate purpose. This conduct can be written or printed, over the telephone, internet, pager, voice mail, answering machine, or any other similar methods.
Stalking is willfully following, being in the presence of, or otherwise harassing another person without purpose on more than one occasion and with the intent to do one of the following:
1) Place them in fear of their safety or safety of their family or associates,
2) Cause them to suffer emotional distress by putting them in fear of death, injury, or continued harassment that puts them in distress.
Stalking / Harassment Penalties
Typically, for a first offense, you will be charged with a Class A1 misdemeanor, the most serious of all misdemeanors. Class A1 misdemeanors are punishable by up to one year in prison and substantial fines.
However, if there is a protection order in place when the offense is committed, the charge is elevated to a Class H felony. Class H felonies are punishable by 4-8 months in a state prison for someone with no criminal history. If there is a protective order in place though, chances are your criminal record is not spotless and the sentence could be elevated to as much as 25 months in the most extreme cases.
