Truth Rules

A blog for fans of Clay Aiken. It may take a while but in the end, truth will win out over lies. Keep it clean, no threats ... and if I don't like what you say I own the delete key.

Stealing screen names

Most of us are aware of criminals out to steal identities. There have been warnings all over. Did you know there's a new game in town? Yup! Stealing screen names.

It happened right here in my Kool-Aid thread. The perpetrator got cold feet and deleted the comments but not before screen caps were taken. This perpetrator, whom I will call Anti-fan, did a Google search on the screen name of a Clay Aiken fan. Long ago, "Carol" had joined a fan site supporting Clay Aiken and given her real name and location. Anti-fan found this through Google. So what does Anti-fan do? He creates a bogus Blogger identity and used "Carol's" information.

Anti-fan is on a crusade to tarnish the name and reputation of Mr. Aiken. Anti-fan has been joined by a few others who are all too happy to help. For clarity, I'll call the "others" Non-fan. If your clueless and reading this, the back-story is that Non-fan has an axe to grind and over the years has been nursing a growing hatred for some of Clay's fans and Clay himself.

Anti-fan used the bogus "Carol" identity to post some derogatory comments here on my blog, which I deleted. I did think it was a bit strange for someone to be using what looked like a real name saying what was said. After one question to a real person I know, I not only knew the post was bogus I also knew that identity was stolen. Within minutes the real "Carol" also knew.

Anti-fan and Non-fan are using bogus identities to post derogatory comments on other blogs where anonymous and made up screen names are allowed. So, if you see a post that seems out of character from what you know about the person behind the screen name, just remember Anti-fan and Non-fan are stealing your screen names.

Another one of their games is making up fake email addresses pretending to be legitimate media sources. Don't fall for this one. You'll be giving them your personal information they can use in their fake screen name game.

That ploy just goes to show how weak and desperate the anti-fan and non-fan have become in their endeavor to destroy Clay and his fans.

It's nice to know we, the real fans, are mature enough to realize what a bunch of immature idiots these people are.

It's become increasinlgy ridiculous and I would think they would figure out they look like fools.

Well, I think we all know this has been going on for some time. I know it went on at PH and then posts were stolen from there and posted on pickle's blog.

It always bothered me because the person using my sceen name made too many errors in their typing or spelling...shameful!

Any one want the back story on the M&G in Melbourne? I have the info from 2 sources and it isn't pretty. Poor Clay, what's he to do with sicko fans? He does the best he can and still gets blamed for everything.

Polly, I want the back story.

The whole point of this blog is getting the truth out.

I'd like to hear it as well Polly because I've heard a version as well and let's just say it's absolutely ridiculous.....and one of the one's I suspect is working with JP was in that meet and greet and didn't get treated the way she felt she should be. What does she expect from her stalkerish behaviour that Clay would get down on bended knee and ask her to marry him? Pfffft....if what I think is true, she's just as pathetic as JP.....

RTM - Well, it began way before that M&G. Can we say stalker???

I have a b'day dinner to go to tonight. Let me work on it and put it all together and I'll have it for you later.

I finally resolved the breaking of my promise to a friend, issue. I went back and re-read the emails and discovered what I promised was not to post her email on a board, lest she get bashed for it. So, since I discovered she posted her story at the OC, which was lifted and taken to the purple blog, then I no longer feel obligated.

What we have here, gals, is Clay walked into a room with two known stalkers! And I have the low down on both of them. I say whatever Clay felt he needed to say or do to handle the situation, was justifiable.

Back later!

Thanks Polly......I suspect at least one of the people you are talking about is one that I suspect is involved. She's crazed. I've long been an advocate of Clay giving up meet and greets, especially the Stub Hubs....I hope this is the catalyst for just that.

This will be long so I will give you the background for it now and then what I know a little later.



Right after the first of the year, a thread began at the OFC. It was the first time I had read anything negative about M&Gs, especially the Stubhub and knowing from my friend what I did, I posted in that thread, but much later on. I didn't reveal anything other than to say I had knowledge that something had occurred and attempted to give an explanation for it.



From the OFC - (I won't reveal any s/ns)



http://clayonline.g1.sparkart.net/util/forums/clayaiken/viewtopic.php?t=9721&postdays=0&postorder=asc&start=0



"...So many places and faces for him. Cant be great all the time. Alot of pressure. It hurt my friend more than it hurt me. Being old fashioned I would really like an apology. But it will snow in Florida First. I guess 1 bad M&G every 20 or so isnt that bad. Just wish it hadnt cost so much..."



Let's make this clear, it didn't "cost" you anything more than you were willing to pay as A DONATION TO THE BAF - NOT for the opportunity to see Clay. In return, a visit with him was a thank you for your donation.



Here's another one...(in part)



"...I have to chime in and say that I was also at a Stub Hub meet and greet where Clay was mean and hurtful. I have NEVER been talked to in the way he spoke to my friend and I. He was visably pissed and DID take it out on us. I have MET HIM SEVERAL TIMES and have never had him speak to me so rudely. I am very hurt and disappointed by this behavior..."



Do any of you gals know anyone who has never had the opportunity to meet Clay? I do, and I have met him, but will not try to win another M&G from the OFC until others have had the opportunity. I think there's a flaw in the system when some can continue to see him time after time. One of the stalkers I will tell you about has seen him at least 10 times...inside a M&G and out. I'll tell you about that later.



Stalker #1 (Comments in parentheses are mine)

"None of you people know me. I read the board when I can but do not post here or the CB or most anywhere. I am a mod for another clay message board (RHT) and rarely even post there EVER. (True, not since last Sept.) I am a PhD student in NC (age 37)and do not have TIME to post on message boards. (Until this story began) I am NOT a troll. (Just delusional) I have supported Clay since AI, wrapped presents for the BAF, helped with other BAF projects and have done nothing but love him, until now. I have not had anyone to talk to about what happened (Until JP came along) and I saw this thread and was reaching out for some support...and what happens...I get questioned on my identity and doubted. I was there and know in my heart what happened. (And you feel no responsibility) It hurts to even admit it, but it took place and things will never be the same again for me." (Thank God! Clay is relieved. Sell your Clay stuff on eBay!)

Stalker #1 (con't.)

"I went to bed early last night which is why I have not been back. I will be glad to provide clarification as needed. I do not know WHY he acted the way he did (Yes, you do) ...believe me, I have analyzed this to death. (Dig a little deeper, or do stalkers not recognize their own bad behavior?) As you can imagine, I am a little concerned over posting details because I will again be open to being ripped apart and questioned as I have been already. Please feel free to PM me with any questions; however, right now I am reluctant to post he said this and that on a public board..." (Why stop now? You started this and yes, it was all his fault, wasn't it?)

But all of that changed. In a matter of two weeks, JP came along and gave you the perfect excuse you needed as to why you were rejected.

(To be con't...)

Ah Polly it's all coming back to me now......I was in that trainwreck of a thread as well. Those were a horrible few days.

You ask.....

Do any of you gals know anyone who has never had the opportunity to meet Clay?

Yep I do.....me, not even so much as handshake at the buses. Many of my friends have but I haven't had the opportunity. You are right, the system is terribly flawed and if they can't fix it, he needs to give them up altogether.

Sorry, but I don't want this blog to become about what Clay should or shouldn't do. Not everyone is going to agree and we've got message boards where we can voice opinions.

Let's keep the subject about getting the truth out there.

Bravo! Thanks so much for looking out for me and the others! Turd boy will stoop to any level, apparently, to get what he wants!

polly graf,

I KNOW the back story on the Melbourne M&Gs. . . unfortunately, 3 of the people involved were from our local fan group. Email me and we'll compare notes, if you like!

I'm still working on the story, but wondered if you had seen this?

http://video.msn.com/v/us/v.htm?g=c5d6d697-b511-42d0-925b-8abfad8b2a3e&f=06/64&fg=email

Simon overheard as saying, "We must stop him, at all cost, we must stop him," referring to Clay.
I wonder is he still feels that way?

I didn't see the clip but I read the transcript.

Silly silly Simon. No one is gonna stop Clay. NO ONE!!!

I liked this post and wanted to share. This was posted in another message board that is non Clay related...

"It is so easy to start trouble on the internet. Most people have lives outside the internet and for those that basically have no life or a very closed/sad life, they hang on the internet and abuse their freewill. Sure, they can be reported but most people who handle violations, have a life outside of the internet and think anything brought to their attention is an overreaction or simply worth ignoring. I can understand why the government went after the code to Internet Explorer that Bill Gates created. They obviously know there is potential danger of internet and people capable of abusing their freedom. This fuels nihlists and proves their points, while promotes skepticism. This is why the internet is no longer safe, as it was years ago. This is why that John stalker's blog will remain, until he deletes it."

This explains every single one of John's lies. He is now resorting to making up fake testimonies on his blog and saying they are from Clay's fans. Hello, most of us have met him and know he is a wonderful guy and beautiful inside and out. We know that John is a liar.

I somehow doubt that JP is creating those himself, he's got a lot of help (and not the kind he really needs!!)

Hey polly, I'm still curious to see what you have to say about the meet and greet....
