It seems we finally have a trial date of the 8/9/14 – this time we are looking at five days of who said what on the internet. Hopefully free coffee is supplied to ensure no one falls asleep.
Unfortunately it seems that the maximum sentence which appears to be being advocated is 120 years for anonymous blog posts and hoax emails. Hopefully Bill doesn’t get found guilty and sentenced to 120 years for the alleged sending of stupid hoax emails and bad taste in music.
The other notable point is that apparently the US government still thinks Bill has followers who do whatever crazy crap appears on the internet. I’m sure they know that Bill’s site has a pitiful hit rate and that the Facebook page had 54 friends, his books have exceptionally low sales rates and no one visits this website except the US government, hackers, trolls, and lawyers. These people need to get realistic – Bill quite simply has no followers at all. And that includes me – I disagree strongly with him on certain topics. I update this out of charity and that’s all.
And – predictably – the Facebook page is back, so everyone who was ‘lucky’ enough to be ‘friends’ with whoever was using that page gets a minor role in the court documents. I knew it’d be reappearing.
Anyway, there is a 40 page summary of stupid emails from what sounds like a drunk guy quoting bad song lyrics. Regardless of who or what sent them, 120 years for typing stupid stuff on the internet is a bit harsh I think.
