Welcome to hell, someone once said to me. I did not know what she meant until it started to happen. People coming to us and harassing us about what we preach, leaving nasty little comments, and yes even damning our page and blog. There is enough Hatred to last a lifetime, Enough ridicule to last past that lifetime. How do we continue to go on, if this is happening? we simply hit that ban and ignore button. Words are just words, unless action is taken.
Simply put if you do not like what you see, of our blog or page. Then continue on your merry way. Ignore what we are doing, be the bigger person sort to speak, And let us do our job of warning people about, Your type of people, which happens to be TROLL and or ANIMAL ABUSER.
Quite Frankly we don't give a care what happened in your past, unless you continue to do it in the here and now. Quite Frankly if you get caught posting something that is Vile, and or attacking other Advocates/Rescues/Activists then you are no friend of ours.
Our placement here, is to help the LEGIT Advocates, Rescues, and Activist have some type of defense. Yes we help them, if they have solid proof of said harassment. Someone said we claimed to be a PI, to be a PI we would need a license here in the states we Live in.
What we have said, and when I say we I mean my team and I. We have said that we work closely with those who are ex-law enforcement and or are still in law enforcement. Closely meaning we give them tips, and information with what we get in return is clarification on certain individuals, who have or have not broken the law. Many years we have been doing this, and many years there were occasional misconceptions about others, however we have always apologized for when we were wrong. However when the proof is there and people become blind to it, then attack us for what we know, we will not apologize neither will we divulge a majority of information found, due to the sensitivity of certain issues.
Not publicly in the sense, that is why we have email, for people to ask questions, for people who want the proof. Yet you will get no names of those who have contacted us, sorry, yet no. It is for their safety purposes that we keep their names out of the light. The reason being is because there is a certain issue that we all face, and that is the danger we face when we bust those who have done wrong. We would like to keep them as far away from us and our contacts as possible. When Online harassment and stalking become full blown physical then we have a problem, don't we? It has been known to happen, and we for one would like that not to happen to our informants and or us.
With recent issues happening there seems to be a lot of argument on both ends. We were asked to keep quite for now, until things calm down and everything is over. We will respect those wishes, because we do not want anymore Drama or Accusations coming our way.
To those who have been leaving some foul emails with our response team, I will personally answer all question here and now, even the nice questions that deserve an answer.
