We are writing on behalf of Cox Communications to advise you that we have received a notification that you are using your Cox High Speed Internet service to post or transmit material that infringes the copyrights of a complainant's members. We have included a copy of the complaint letter. Pursuant to the provisions of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act ("DMCA"), which is codified at 17 U.S.C. Â§ 512, upon receiving such notification, Cox is required to "act expeditiously to remove, or disable access to" the infringing material in order to avoid liability for any alleged copyright infringement. Accordingly, Cox will suspend your account and disable your connection to the Internet within 24 hours of your receipt of this email if the offending material is not removed.
Please be aware that the DMCA also provides procedures by which a subscriber accused of copyright violation can respond to the allegations of infringement and, under certain circumstances, cause his or her account to be reinstated. To do so, however, the response must meet certain criteria. Pursuant to section (g) of the DMCA (17 U.S.C. Â§ 512(g)), you have the right to submit to Cox a counter-notification which, to be effective, must include the following elements:
(a) a physical or electronic signature of the subscriber;
(b) identification of the material that has been removed or to which access has been disabled and the location at which the material appeared before it was removed or disabled;
(c) a statement under penalty of perjury that the subscriber has a good faith belief that the material was removed or disabled as a result of mistake or misidentification of the material to be removed or disabled;
(d) the subscriberÂ’s name, address, and telephone number and a statement that the subscriber consents to the jurisdiction of the Federal District Court for the judicial district in which the address is located.
In the event that you submit to Cox a counter-notification that includes these elements, Cox will forward your counter notification to the complainant and advise them that Cox will cease disabling access to the allegedly infringing material in ten (10) business days. Unless the complainant notifies us that it has filed an action seeking a court order to restrain you from engaging in the allegedly infringing activity prior to the expiration of those ten (10) business days, Cox will reactivate your account.

Happy Osama day!!! Celebrate with terror! Nothing is as festive as the buckling superstructure of a burning building, trying to bottom for an airplane.
Bad taste? Possibly.
Do I care? No :)

I don't care which one of us you choose to believe. I realize he's probably letting his skill as a liar slip intentionally to get more attention -- as he's getting now. But, I'd rather he get his attention than these half truths or outright lies go uncontested.
this, is what i have to say.
1. i wasnt out drinking with jesse that night, i was with FRIENDS, and couldn’t get home, furthermore, jesse wasn’t a gay.com boy, did i meet him there, yes. i talked to him all of once, and then we grabbed lunch the next day, and did all of our hanging out/getting to know each other over meals.
2. im sick and tired of being treated like a bad die. my only crime ever was to care about you and try to be your FRIEND.
3. im not going to accept blame for a situation that you made so perfect that i have no choice to believe that it happened.
4. all those nights you said you wanted more than just sex from me, but, you couldn’t go one night of just hanging out with me without trying to get in my pants, you say it was love...clearly you have a warped definition of what love is.
5. people dont cut themselves or beat the fuck out of cement walls or trees if they don’t care about you and don’t know what else to do.
6. you used me, just as much as you claimed that i ever used you.
7. when i thought you were dead, i cried uncontrollably for 4 hours until rob got to where i was and we decided to try to find you.
8. i do love you. and always will. is it a shame that things didn’t work out, and wont? yes.
9. would i have liked them to? yes.
10. you always claimed that all i ever did was drink in the ending of our friendship. do you want to know why? because, i saw someone i loved flushing their life down the toilet and taking our FRIENDSHIP with it. and didnt know what i could do to fix it.
11. am i ready for a relationship? no. will i be anytime soon? no. does that mean, i cant date people and see if something can work? no. we had demonstrated on several occasions that it was impossible for us at the time.
12. several times, i’ve risked my job to hang out with you
13. did i use your latest attention getting/quasi suicide attempt to get attention, yes. most certainly i did, so that you would see how ludicrous you were acting and clearly, you haven’t learned anything from the situation you just got out of
14. if you don’t care about me, or what i do, why do you visit my website regularly and LOOK for documents?
15. i’ve been doing real well at writing people off emotionally lately. welcome to the list.
i don’t carry any ill will, bad thoughts, or wishes towards you, at all, in fact, i wish you the best i hope that you can get on with your life. as i sit here, re-reading your post, you’re blaming me for all your unhappiness. i have just one question, when did i ever want anything more than friends and a fuck from you? did i ever, ONCE ever ask you to be more than that? i can think of a period of about 3-4 weeks when we first met, and thats all.
i really dont care if you read this or not. it’s not for your or anybody’s benefit.
05/30/2003: Joe promises he will come see me at my Oakland apartment on 05/31. Keep in mind, I was an emotional mess the last few days of May, he was the source of it, and now he was supposedly trying to set things right and try to cheer me up.
05/31/2003: Joe never showed up. He had a cell phone on him, but didn't bother to call me. He found the time to logon to AIM over two-dozen times during an aprox 12 hour period, yet he couldn't spare a second to send me a message. Now i'm an emotional mess that's trying to figure out what the hell this punk is trying to do and why.
06/01/2003: The first i hear from Joe is this sad load of crap:

[03:16] TalPraex: awaywhor :(
[03:17] neoboijoe: hehehe
[03:17] neoboijoe: so fucked up
[03:17] TalPraex: frunk?
[03:17] neoboijoe: DUCKING FRUNK.
[03:21] neoboijoe: ??
[03:21] TalPraex: you're too drunk to get it
[03:21] TalPraex: are you home?
[03:22] neoboijoe: probably
[03:22] neoboijoe: oh
[03:22] neoboijoe: home
[03:22] neoboijoe: no
[03:22] neoboijoe: im at ben's place.
[03:23] TalPraex: good night
[03:23] TalPraex: damn homo
[03:23] neoboijoe: bed nini for you?
[03:23] neoboijoe: *love*
[03:24] neoboijoe: i *WILL* come to your house tomorrow, k?
[03:24] neoboijoe: let me grab a ciggy and call you real quick?

He tells me how much i allegedly mean to him. I emphasize that I'm still miserable and really need to see him, he promises he will come. He could have at least invited me drinking, I coulda used a drink or 12.
Again, he failed to show up. Again, he failed to call.
06/02/2003: Its shortly after midnight, I notice he made a LJ entry at 00:18. It's a delayed post of an entry he wrote on BART. His train stops at Lake Merrit BART and I lived a 10 minute walk from the station. With this wanton disregard for me he destroyed the last fragments of our friendship forevermore.
4 He's just as guilty of trying to get in my butt as I am of trying to get in his pants. He says it almost as if a complaint, if he wasn't enjoying himself he shouldn't have been hard :)
6 If he's trying to imply I used him as my dildo, if I were after a dildo I would have picked something bigger.
12 That was his risk to take. He wasn't forced or coerced into doing anything he didn't want. We could just as easily had many clean nights instead. We both made choices of our own free will.
13 I don't see how this is supposed to enlighten me. More importantly, how could I possibly have benefited from this so-called lesson if I was dead?
14 Joe pastes links in #gaysfca, like many others I follow them. Why? For the same reason Qin Shihuangdi forced thousands of families to relocate to Xianyang. Also, homo sum: humani nil a me alienum puto
15 See #8. You can't have both.

09:37 am - STRAIGHT DOPE!!! + Shame @ decosta 4EVAR
Its been a long time since my last livejournal entry, this will be my first entry of the year, and possibly the only entry of the year. Although, its also possible it might amuse me to use livejournal as a platform from which to spew propaganda; to bitch about the futility life; to brainwash you and recruit you into my secret organization dedicated to covertly replacing heads of state with horses (Caligula would be proud... shhh!!); as platform to campaign for the election of Mr. Potatohead to governor of CA; to garnish support for the invasion and occupation of Tuvalu, raise the levies of doom, grab the sticks of boom, and order forced march (on water) for the entire journey since we want to get there soon to bulldoze half the island, build a True Value mega store next to the mega mall, surrounded by the mega parking lot; or maybe I’ll just tell ya how my day went (premium info-bits, with my proprietary blend of pessimism, apathy and a dash of vitriol).
( He's not dead, Jim! What really was going on with Tal'Shiar around 7/20Collapse )

Every man has the same final destination: death at the end of life's road. But the path we travel makes all the difference. Some of us have maps and goals. Others are just lost. -- Prince Rhombur Vernius, Rumination at a Fork in the Road
