About My Blog.

Welcome! This is "Catatonic Digressions."
Most, if not all readers don't understand my blog's title. It's an old inside joke from a forum long gone. I was going to change it, but since it's been "confusing" for so long, I decided to leave it. Don't worry about what it means, the content of the blog is what is important.

Unfortunately, my blog isn't what I set out for it to be. A disturbed and manic online stalker and cyberbully has made it impossible for me to post about family, my son, life in my part of New York...so I stopped (for the most part), and I mostly reblog and repost what I feel is important, necessary or close to my heart. As for the stalking sociopath, she can go to hell for harassing me and my family since mid-2008. You can't scare me offline with a few lame threats and dozens of pages of defamation, abuse, depravity and libel. I'm bitchy like that. ;)
(Anyone who knows me knows I'm not actually a bitch, but let's allow this psychopath to think I'm a bitch to her blackened heart's content—it seems to make her feel she has some sort of control over me…and it does not.)

If you read a story and you feel moved in any way, comment. Comments are more than welcome.

Unlike those online who lie and hide behind fake photos and insanely fabricated stories, I'm a real person. I'm real and I don't pretend to be someone I'm not. After years of putting up with online abuse by manipulative, pathological liars, attention whores or narcissists, I've had it. Don't bother me with pathetic drama. I have no time for these types of people and their need to absorb others' time and attention.

Feel free to email me if you have a story or cause you would like shared, especially if it pertains to animal rights, liberation, veganism, animal welfare, health and well-being, geekery, Macs and computer dorkiness, music, lowbrow art, kitchy stuff, skateboards, the beach, swimming, diving, NYC, beading (it's my hobby), recipes (love to cook, especially if I made the recipe up myself!), VEGAN!, ALF, Sea Shepherd, Action for Animals, NIO, 269Life and/or anything you think I might enjoy or others might—you never know. It doesn't always have to be serious. Hilarious stories, local NY, funny videos or photos, photobombs (especially if they contain pets!)...I might be partially censored, but I'm not closed down!

Please, join Sea Shepherd Conservation Society, and follow them and The Barbi Twins on Twitter and Facebook.

For the Oceans,

Wait Until You See This Spammer!

So, this local Long Island guy (@sstard) spams my blog TWO times.*


He spams me from Delhi, India no less! I fill out the contact form on his poorly designed website, to inform him of the spam, spam that he posted to a Long Island web designer. If this jerk had researched who he planned to spam, he'd know I'm a designer and a Long Islander, but Rae is far too busy showing his "macho stupidity" to his little buddies to use his pea brain and have his spammers in Delhi, INDIA filter his spam for him! And who likes spam? No one. I know plenty of people who have went to a site and used the "Contact Us" form to tell a company or organization that someone is spamming. (and since he did it twice to me within 48 hours, I also let him know his text is all overlapping on his main web page. Overlapping all over the place, and badly.)

This total jerk replies and plays dumb, claiming no one from his company spammed anyone, and that maybe I should have tried to find out who actually did spam me before attacking... and then he called me a twit. Let's take a look-see!

His contact form isn't even formatted correctly. It's signed from him instead of the sender. Ha ha.


Poor "Rae" should never have lied about spamming me, and trying to pull people to his awful site with spam. Now I have no choice but to show what a douchebag this "company owner" really is. His email correspondence is to come in the next day or two, right here, right in this blog entry. Trust me, the douchebagery he displays is indisputable; he just doesn't know when to stop, and when I push that right button, he admits he did indeed spam me. It took this dumb ass three full days to finally think to himself, "Gee, oh, wait, Google. I bet I can Google this person's email." What a moron. I'd nailed his name, real name and full dox in under 24 hours. The dude thought I was a guy and was begging for a fight. I don't mean an email war, I mean he wanted to meet and fight it out! Hilarious! Tough guy!


rae@rpaxis.com had this to say:


Bigshot Rae Parth wants to "set up a meet!" In douchebag loser lingo, that means "I want to meet because I'm so man I need a tote bag to carry my balls in, and I'm gonna kick the shit out of you and brag about it on Facebook, after posting a few Depeche Mode remixes!!!"

You just have to love a dude who thinks nothing else but "LIES! I can/will kick your ass!" as the first response to being told off for spamming.
People has issues!


Yep. 

(Sorry Rama, but you didn't learn people skills in Hofstra, and one of them is apologizing when you're wrong, and you, jackass, were wrong—and lied about what you did—and then continued to be an aggressive *sshole.) You don't look (aka "spam") for potential clients and then call them twits and pussies. Tsk, tsk.



Oh, don't "Leave a Comment!"
Rae doesn't like it much!

◀━ Overlapping text. LOL


(Camels FTW!)



















LMAO


Now keep in mind, this is what I found on my blog, so I went to the website that left the spam comments and let them know. Notice that Rae Paxis, or his outsourced spammers, spammed me on 6-15 and then again the following day, 6-16. I told him about it, and he denied it. Not only did he pretend to not know about the spam, he called me a twit for saying something to him. I'm betting this kid was the one who didn't get laid until his wedding night.






"Are you still 5 mins east??
I am very eager to meet the numb nuts we spammed!
My cell is below call me if your serious and bring some body armor to give you the advantage!!!"
Best,
Rae Parth



Yes, after that email from Rae, I knew his FAILBOAT had arrived.

This lying big shot thought he was going to get away with spamming by being a bully, and when I pwned his dumb ass, he just hid his "macho" (◀━ read as "awful bragging small-penised dude") idiotic Facebook wall and SHUT UP.


This next email from Rae Parth might be used in his upcoming marketing campaign for RPaxis. It needs a little tweaking, though. I think he should drop the "reek of pussy" commnet, but Rae's the BOSS, so if he wants to talk like he does to his wife to possible clients, who's to say it's a bad idea?



I wonder what this FAIL DUDE's wife is like. Seriously, is she a wuss, or does she speak up for herself? To be married to such a douche... wow.



One would think that Rama Parth learned his lesson after this, but no.
The dumb ass spammed me again today! He's using some outsourcing in Dehli, India. Look at the spam; the spammer can't even compose a sentence in English. Psssh!

Hey Rae Parth, you "would like to make friendship" huh? Hahahaha!!!


Idiot.
Further SPAM counts as well, dick.
(The above...)

"You still reek of pussy."

Like I said, no bad mouthing your wife. Just get her to bathe, man! If that stank isn't her, then you need to lay off the Jackson Heights hookers!

"The only thing your displaying here is that your a  coward."


I'm wondering how "eager" you still are to "find me" and do what...oh, kick my ass in? Dude, you have THE FLIP. No guy can kick ANYONE'S ASS with The Flip! And yes, I'm talking about your hair. As long as you have The Flip, I'll win, every time. 

24.184.100.175 Williston Park from a Faggoty Windows Box running shit-ass XP.

Congratulations, Rama. I hope you tell your wife what you've been up to. 
I can if you aren't tough guy enough for the job.
I'll also gladly tell Google if you're falsely inflating AdSense ads. Easily, too, since a friend of mine works in the NYC office.

Hey RAMA, let's go back to your initial BULLSHIT for a moment.

"what is wrong with you? Instead of attacking  - maybe you should find out if someone from here in fact spammed you. 


I would love to meet the twit who wrote this... "

What's wrong with YOU, TWIT? You didn't think you'd get caught, did you?
I did find out, and even when I played the part of "gee golly maybe it wasn't you..." you were STILL AN ASSFUCKED DOUCHEBAG.


You spammed me TWICE. Don't fucking LIE or play games again.

Electronic Frontier Foundation—Know Your Rights!




EFF is the leading civil liberties group defending
your rights in the digital world.» About Us

Know Your Rights!

By Hanni Fakhoury, EFF Staff Attorney
June 2011
Know Your Rights Whitepaper (pdf)
EFF Police Tips (pdf)
Your computer, your phone, and your other digital devices hold vast amounts of personal information about you and your family. This is sensitive data that's worth protecting from prying eyes - including those of the government.
The Fourth Amendment to the Constitution protects you from unreasonable government searches and seizures, and this protection extends to your computer and portable devices. But how does this work in the real world? What should you do if the police or other law enforcement officers show up at your door and want to search your computer?
EFF has designed this guide to help you understand your rights if officers try to search the data stored on your computer or portable electronic device, or seize it for further examination somewhere else.
Because anything you say can be used against you in a criminal or civil case, before speaking to any law enforcement official, you should consult with an attorney.
Q:Can the police enter my home to search my computer or portable device, like a laptop or cell phone?
A:No, in most instances, unless they have a warrant. But there are two major exceptions: (1) you consent to the search;1or (2) the police have probable cause to believe there is incriminating evidence on the computer that is under immediate threat of destruction.2
Q:What if the police have a search warrant to enter my home, but not to search my computer? Can they search it then?
A:No, typically, because a search warrant only allows the police to search the area or items described in the warrant.3 But if the warrant authorizes the police to search for evidence of a particular crime, and such evidence is likely to be found on your computer, some courts have allowed the police to search the computer without a warrant.4 Additionally, while the police are searching your home, if they observe something in plain view on the computer that is suspicious or incriminating, they may take it for further examination and can rely on their observations to later get a search warrant.5And of course, if you consent, any search of your computer is permissible.
Q:Can my roommate/guest/spouse/partner allow the police access to my computer?
A:Maybe. A third party can consent to a search as long as the officers reasonably believe the third person has control over the thing to be searched.6 However, the police cannot search if one person with control (for example a spouse) consents, but another individual (the other spouse) with control does not.7 One court, however, has said that this rule applies only to a residence, and not personal property, such as a hard drive placed into someone else's computer.8
Q:What if the police want to search my computer, but I'm not the subject of their investigation?
A:It typically does not matter whether the police are investigating you, or think there is evidence they want to use against someone else located on your computer. If they have a warrant, you consent to the search, or they think there is something incriminating on your computer that may be immediately destroyed, the police can search it. Regardless of whether you're the subject of an investigation, you can always seek the assistance of a lawyer.
Q:Can I see the warrant?
A:Yes. The police must take the warrant with them when executing it and give you a copy of it.9 They must also knock and announce their entry before entering your home10 and must serve the warrant during the day in most circumstances.11
Q:Can the police take my computer with them and search it somewhere else?
A:Yes. As long as the police have a warrant, they can seize the computer and take it somewhere else to search it more thoroughly. As part of that inspection, the police may make a copy of media or other files stored on your computer.12
Q:Do I have to cooperate with them when they are searching?
A:No, you do not have to help the police conduct the search. But you should not physically interfere with them, obstruct the search, or try to destroy evidence, since that can lead to your arrest. This is true even if the police don't have a warrant and you do not consent to the search, but the police insist on searching anyway. In that instance, do not interfere but write down the names and badge numbers of the officers and immediately call a lawyer.
Q:Do I have to answer their questions while they are searching my home without a warrant?
A:No, you do not have to answer any questions. In fact, because anything you say can be used against you and other individuals, it is best to say nothing at all until you have a chance to talk to a lawyer. However, if you do decide to answer questions, be sure to tell the truth. It is a crime to lie to a police officer and you may find yourself in more trouble for lying to law enforcement than for whatever it was they wanted on your computer.13
Q:If the police ask for my encryption keys or passwords, do I have to turn them over?
A:No. The police can't force you to divulge anything. However, a judge or a grand jury may be able to. The Fifth Amendment protects you from being forced to give the government self-incriminating testimony. If turning over an encryption key or password triggers this right, not even a court can force you to divulge the information. But whether that right is triggered is a difficult question to answer. If turning over an encryption key or password will reveal to the government information it does not have (such as demonstrating that you have control over files on a computer), there is a strong argument that the Fifth Amendment protects you.14 If, however, turning over passwords and encryption keys will not incriminate you, then the Fifth Amendment does not protect you. Moreover, even if you have a Fifth Amendment right that protects your encryption keys or passwords, a grand jury or judge may still order you to disclose your data in an unencrypted format under certain circumstances.15 If you find yourself in a situation where the police are demanding that you turn over encryption keys or passwords, let EFF know.
Q:If my computer is taken and searched, can I get it back?
A:Perhaps. If your computer was illegally seized, then you can file a motion with the court to have the property returned.16If the police believe that evidence of a crime has been found on your computer (such as "digital contraband" like pirated music and movies, or digital images of child pornography), the police can keep the computer as evidence. They may also attempt to make you forfeit the computer, but you can challenge that in court.17
Q:What about my work computer?
A:It depends. Generally, you have some Fourth Amendment protection in your office or workspace.18 This means the police need a warrant to search your office and work computer unless one of the exceptions described above applies. But the extent of Fourth Amendment protection depends on the physical details of your work environment, as well as any employer policies. For example, the police will have difficulty justifying a warrantless search of a private office with doors and a lock and a private computer that you have exclusive access to. On the other hand, if you share a computer with other co-workers, you will have a weaker expectation of privacy in that computer, and thus less Fourth Amendment protection.19 However, be aware that your employer can consent to a police request to search an office or workspace.20Moreover, if you work for a public entity or government agency, no warrant is required to search your computer or office as long as the search is for a non-investigative, work-related matter.21
Q:I've been arrested. Can the police search my cell phone without a warrant?
A:Maybe. After a person has been arrested, the police generally may search the items on her person and in her pockets, as well as anything within her immediate control.22 This means that the police can physically take your cell phone and anything else in your pockets. Some courts go one step further and allow the police to search the contents of your cell phone, like text messages, call logs, emails, and other data stored on your phone, without a warrant.23 Other courts disagree, and require the police to seek a warrant.24 It depends on the circumstances and where you live.
Q:The police pulled me over while I was driving. Can they search my cell phone?
A:Maybe. If the police believe there is probably evidence of a crime in your car, they may search areas within a driver or passenger's reach where they believe they might find it - like the glove box, center console, and other "containers."25Some courts have found cell phones to be "containers" that police may search without a warrant.26
Q:Can the police search my computer or portable devices at the border without a warrant?
A:Yes. So far, courts have ruled that almost any search at the border is "reasonable" - so government agents don't need to get a warrant. This means that officials can inspect your computer or electronic equipment, even if they have no reason to suspect there is anything illegal on it.27 An international airport may be considered the functional equivalent of a border, even if it is many miles from the actual border.28
Q:Can the police take my electronic device away from the border or airport for further examination without a warrant?
A:At least one federal court has said yes, they can send it elsewhere for further inspection if necessary.29 Even though you may be permitted to enter the country, your computer or portable device may not be.

Photo: Rainbow state

PHOTO OF THE DAY

Photo: Rainbow state



The Empire State Building, already decked out in its rainbow finest this weekend for the annual Gay Pride events, became a Twitter sensation overnight as this (undated, but not recent) photo went viral in celebration of New York's passage of a bill legalizing same-sex marriage.
If you have some of the same Facebook friends I do, your news feed looked something like this at midnight: “New York!!” “NY, ya did good!” “Good job, NY” as if the state were a big, slow dog that had finally sauntered out from under the tree where it had been dozing and started to run. Yes, the state Senate finally ushered in a new era of equality, civil rights and really fun parties late last night by approving a bill to legalize same-sex marriage.
The Republican-dominated Senate approved the bill 33-29, following on the heels of the Assembly, which OK’d the bill last week. Gov. Andrew Cuomo had made the law his personal mission for months, rallying the Democratic senators around the cause and orchestrating the efforts of several gay rights advocacy groups. All but one Democratic senator supported the bill, while four Republicans backed it. Two years ago, the Democrat-controlled Senate resoundingly defeated a similar measure.
New York is the largest state to approve same-sex marriage, joining five others — Connecticut, Iowa, Massachusetts, New Hampshire and Vermont, plus the District of Columbia. A majority of states have an explicit ban, whether by statute or constitutional amendment, on same-sex marriage or civil unions.
Among those not happy about the decision were the Roman Catholic bishops of New York, who worried that “both marriage and the family will be undermined by this tragic presumption of government.”
The law goes into effect July 24, which means I’d better start working on fitting into that Catherine Malandrino dress. It could be a festive fall.
