Everybody's just words on the screen, but judging by his tone and behaviour I was getting white, vaguely paunchy, balding... But then I suck at visualizing the bodies that go with the personality. What's the point?

Tomasia, you were being stalkery. Not every woman finds that attractive. It isn't unusual for stalkers to become violent so Aliza's comments about rape and murder are hardly unfounded. If you need to bring race into it that's your problem. One of many by the sounds of it.

As for concerns of physical violence, I'm a vaguely amused that Aliza didn't yank your sack off for referring to her as a "chick".

Because Aliza is a decent person.

You're just makin' shit up, as usual. She was clearly responding to your stalking of RocketSurgeon. She said nothing whatsoever about your skin color.

You are starting to remind of a guy who called himself Wicked Clown. He was White.

She's not responding to me looking into why RS served time in prison, as her inability to paint the neighbor/the coworker/father in my examples as equivalent to murderers and rapists, or even to call them creepy for inquiring about their curiosities.

So whatever led Aliza to paint a picture of a violent rapist, clearly wasn't me googling why RS was in prison for.

Why are you here again ?

If it is Tomasia you refer to prthaps "funophage" might be better. He gets up one's nose and and reduces all to hate..

My original statement was trying to convey that you don't say that kind of thing to people in real life because you're likely to meet someone who'll try to choke you out (or whatever) for talking that way. At least that's the way it is where I grew up in the deep South. This escalated from there.

It's really very simple. I was not in for check fraud, I haven't used checks in 20 years, and I have no idea where he even got that idea. Likely from a similar-named person-- assuming he really found anything like that and isn't just trying to pick whatever low-level crime came to mind.

Drug cases aren't a big deal (to anyone but the defendant) unless a large amount of drugs are found and/or a big raid is conducted... sensational things that news people like to focus on. Neither was present in my case. In fact, I walked into the courthouse and was arrested there, without fanfare. My case consisted of them trying to make a couple of tomato plant hydroponic grow boxes--to be fair, I was trying to develop a system for growing weed for medical patients, in home, but wasn't actually growing it at the time--into a major growing operation, based on the testimony of my ex-GF, who asked for and got a gag order to "protect" herself, so there was little for the reporter (one, once) in the courtroom to report upon. After conviction, there was a little blurb in the local paper, but as I said, it wasn't a paper that put its stuff online at the time, and when I got out and looked, I couldn't even find my own case. I suspect it's on microfiche, but even I don't care enough to go to the library and look through reams of files on that. Maybe they'll digitize, someday, and we can all read about it. But all it'll say is that I got convicted and was given a maximum sentence.

Cases being overturned, which occurs all the time, are never reported on unless either the lawyers behind the case (when a major group such as the Innocence Project) push it to the media or it's a fairly major case like a guy who did like 25 years for a murder or rape he didn't commit. Most overturned cases are lucky to get a paragraph on page six, next to the ads for JC Penny's new summer dress sale, because no one wants to hear that the system makes errors-- they need to believe in the system or else it unlocks a lot of questions people would rather not consider on a serious level. They'd rather think that the reality of the justice system is like the TV show Law & Order.

It's really simple: they built a case out of nothing, cheated to win (not uncommon in small courtrooms), and tried to pressure me into giving up names so they could go after bigger fish. It was a "guy who grows marijuana" case, not a big deal even at the height of the drug war, and they buried me with a max sentence as a penalty for not playing ball. Again, this happens all the time, daily, everywhere in the USA. To expect it all to be reported in the sensational fashion associated with major busts is ludicrous. Maybe if it had been meth or one of the other propaganda-useful chemicals that everyone is scared of, sure. The worst part of it is that they dig through your life-- your computers, your property, interviewing friends and family, everything... and they put it in a big report called a "discovery" that they hand to you to go over in your cell, seeing just how thoroughly their investigators can pull your life apart. It's possibly the single most horrifying part of the ordeal.

When I got out, I asked the lawyer handling my countersuit to keep things low-key, and not to make a media stink about it because I just wanted to restart my life and get back to trying to raise the son whose life I had missed for its first nine years. The damage they did was immeasurable.

Now privacy is paramount to me, and I still have a lot of shit I went through (as they put me in the awful conditions they did so they could try to extract info from me by way of a "plea deal" I didn't even have the ability to give in to) that I need to process. It's beyond despicable to me that this guy tried to dig like that, like they did. I guess he considers anyone who's ever been to prison fair game, still seeing me as a criminal rather than a person who just wants to try to get all this shit out of his head and not have to live with the recurring nightmares.

And I did put three guys in the infirmary. It wasn't the first time I was attacked, but it was the worst. It's amazing what you're capable of when you're fighting for your life in a confined space, full of adrenaline, and you're being stabbed with a screwdriver.

These are the scars I still carry from that attack:

(Apologies for the lighting and angle... you wouldn't believe how hard it is to take a photo of your own shoulderblade.)

They don't show up well in the picture, but they're pretty nasty looking scars, up close, that I now carry. The physical ones, that is. The eternal vulnerability to what Tomasia (and any other vicious person like him) did will linger much longer than the fear I felt while being stabbed.

This is the last I'm going to say on this subject.

The resolution on that photo is really unacceptable. I can't tell if I'm looking at a bullet hole, the puncture wound from screwdriver stabbing, or a case of bad acne.

No, I'm afraid you'll have to obtain higher quality photographs (preferably taken by a qualified medical profession), and medical reports of the incident in question. If you find that to be a bit too tedious to put together just to prove yourself to a forum community, then don't worry! I'm sure Tomasia can pull it together by simply calling your doctor, pretending to be you.

After all this is a perfectly normal thing to do if you imagine yourself to be in some totally absurd situation where doing so makes some kind of sense, and then pretend that it applies in the real world.

Is his agenda to be boring and tedious? If so then mission accomplished.
