Linda Ellis back to Her Old Tricks Again?
« on: March 02, 2017, 07:46:52 AM »
Well it appears that Linda Ellis is back to her old tricks again. She just recently released another long video using the same old twisted and out of context facts to claim victim status of a cyber bully. I will not give her video any SEO juice by sharing a link to it here but our own April Brown did a good follow-up video which I have included with some commentary here.

The old LE/LL/DP forum has been frozen as to not encourage discussions about her and her antics. But her out of context digs at April, me, and Robert are getting tiresome.  How many propaganda videos has Linda produced now?

She has resorted to the "Blurred Lines" strategy.  Meaning, if one person who has an independent thought that decides to criticize or rebut her, then EVERYONE ELSE is "guilty" of the deed.

So, since YOU, Greg, wrote your commentary, you do understand that the REST OF US are "guilty" by association. Whatever YOU said suddenly becomes THEY said and wrote it. And if April writes something, the rest of us wrote it too. And because I wrote this post, the others are responsible for what I wrote. See that wonderful logic? Very convenient.

Robert posted his memes and suddenly WE are responsible.

In 2013, April makes her own post about with a title about "wanting to come after her" because she found about a $100K letter sent to an author she supports but "I am" / "WE are" supposedly responsible and a "danger" to her and "threatening her and her family's personal safety"

April shares a popular Youtube video of "The Hearse Song" and suddenly WE are / I am making "death threats" against her. Does Linda Ellis need to be reminded that The Dash Poem (to quote a GA Supreme Court Justice who said it in open court), the "DASH POEM is ALL ABOUT DEATH and a TOMBSTONE!" Linda can write about life, death, and a tombstone but if someone else makes a reference to "death" and a "tombstone" or being "put into the ground", SHE is suddenly screaming and crying that she is receiving a "death threat."

Linda and her lawyer tries to convince a lower court judge that ELI is trying to terrorize copyright extortionists. Who is "terrorizing" who? It seems to me, there is long list of photographers/agencies/firms, and a poet issuing MANY letters every year to legally-ignorant people threatening to sue them for thousands or tens of thousands of dollars under the argument of "I am just protecting my copyright" which is a line of horseshit if I ever heard one.

At first, I was supposedly "stalking" Linda. Then, it became "WE" were cyberstalking her after I unanimously won in GA Supreme Court. Now, Linda is crying "WE" are CYBERBULLYING her since the cyberstalking shtick didn't hold water. This crying about her being a cyberbullying victim is an insult to true victims of cyberbullying.  Let's ask April Brown to go look into her email files and dig out what she has received from upset, distressed people. WHO is "cyberbullying" who? Who is incessantly sending emails to people to cough up $7,500?

Yes, WE are the cyberstalkers and cyberbullies because WE are the people sending out $2,500, $5,000, $7,500, and $100,000 extortion letters over the sharing of a $10 poem, right? And WE are the cyberstalkers and cyberbullies for daring to speak out, criticize, and insult, right?

Yes, WE are the ones who crop, alter, and blur court exhibits to a lower court judge (unfamiliar with 1st Amendment and Section 230 CDA laws) to twist and exaggerate the truth so that he cannot see not one ENTIRE DISCUSSION in context, right?

Yes, WE are the ones who made her lawyer look like shit in the highest court of Georgia, right? So much so, that the lawyer probably wants little or nothing to do with her client anymore. It couldn't be that she was unprepared, foolish, and the case should have been dismissed to begin with and the complaints didn't hold water. Successfully fooling and exaggerating to a lower court judge with bogus, altered exhibits does NOT count as true and complete evidence. Playing a selective 90-seconds from a 30-minute Internet show episode with FULL DISCLAIMERS does not count as true, complete evidence either.

Yes, WE are the ones who went out of her way to harass April's husband, taking out a Google Adword campaign against her, and have an email war with her and then calls April "obsessed". Who was obsessed in 2011, nagging, threatening, insulting someone via an email war to get thousands of dollars in the middle of the night? Who is OBSESSED with threatening their fans and trying to force them to pay thousands of dollars because they were enthralled with a viral poem?

Yes, WE are forcing people to visit and cry to April Brown.  It can't be that upset people who receive $7,500 extortion letters run to the first person they find in Google who stood up and fought back the Linda Lyric's demand letters, right?

Yes, April was such a timid mouse before she met me and the rest of "us", right?  Of course, WE made April "obsessive". It couldn't because April is sick and tired of people crying to her out of the blue uninvited about the same shit, year after year.  It couldn't because she has become impatient and tired of all the complaints about getting threatening letters for sharing the Dash Poem, right?  Because WE are responsible for that, right?

GIVE ME A FUCKING BREAK! (Oh, no! Because of that GMAFB statement, someone is now going to get a screenshot and crop out all the other words/phrases and cry to another judge that this is a sexual threat and the safety of her bones is in question. A supposedly world-famous poet of a viral poem who "forgets" the concept of SNARK, SATIRE, FIGURATIVE EXPRESSIONS, EPITHETS, and RHETORICAL HYPERBOLE, right?)

If Linda wants April to stop being so "obsessive", maybe Linda needs to issue a full, heartfelt apology to April for the aggravation she has caused and inflicted upon April. Come to think of it, maybe Linda needs to start issuing apologies to a LOT of people. Crazy idea, I know.

A few things I forgot and will add to the list as I remember them.

Who filed a bogus DMCA complaint in 2012 against April Brown in an effort to censor her and consequently took down 200+ videos as "collateral damage" until we at ELI helped April through the process of restoring said 200+ videos?

Who filed a bogus DMCA complaint against the ELI Scribd account to censor and take down a legally-obtained copy of one of the Linda Lyrics letters?

Who is the person that has lawyers afraid of representing her because they don't want the blowback of being a lawyer that supports sending outrageous $7,500 extortion letters for a fan sharing a viral poem?

I really didn't want to get into dredging up past issues and grievances but...

Who is the person who felt the need to restart things up by inserting herself into VOJF (and communicate with the "anonymous" blogger) to REPEATEDLY AND INTENTIONALLY hit, smear, and fully name innocents I personally know? Especially a smart, industrious young man starting college? But that same person freaked out simply because her adult, college graduate daughter with gainful employment was mentioned vaguely just once?

Who goes out of their way to produce and post inaccurate, propaganda videos and use ELI group photos to this very day?

These are things that make us go "Hmm...."

I remember that post, you did not mention the daughter's name, you only mentioned her initials with the word museum next to it.  That whole post was so cryptic nobody but you and Ms. Ellis knew what you were talking about.  I remember that post because I had to call you and ask what it meant, we were all scratching our heads.

Yes, if I were taking lessons from Joelsica or Joelrissa at VOJF, he would tell me I should have tagged every one of her family members, insult and smear them, published their full names, and CONTINUALLY make mention of their family members at least 48 times.

I am an amateur compared to the example set by VOJF. Instead of one post on a small niche forum, Joelsica and Joelrissa would have recommended launching Voices of Marietta.  And then he would recommend for her to launch "Voices of Columbus GA" for me, "Voices of Seattle" for April, "Voices of Mineola" for Oscar, "Voices of Ohio" for Greg, etc.

Hi all,

Been keeping up with the Joel Albrizio craze. Nuts. Anyway, I wrote my own commentary about it as a business owner, an author, and a reviewer. I've also wrote about Linda Ellis since she is rearing her ugly head again.

Thanks for the input and post!! Be warned the Boston PD may be notified if you continue to mention Joel Albrizio..His ego while seemingly huge is very fragile.
Most questions have already been addressed in the forums, get yourself educated before making decisions.

Any advice is strictly that, and anything I may state is based on my opinions, and observations.

Amanda,

I made a comment on your blog post. Thanks for your support and sharing your refreshing perspective.  I really enjoyed the Bad Behavior Author tie-in. I never knew there was such a thing. It was very insightful to see how people react and behave.  Some people really go off the rails.

I think it is very interesting to see your and other "outsiders" perspective on the Linda Ellis and VOJF controversy.

It is like a car accident and there are a number of rubber-neckers who can't resist looking on. Most are shaking their heads at Linda and Joel in amazement.

Yes, both Joel and Linda meet the profile of people who act badly online.

Is Joel threatening to send the Boston PD?  ;D Maybe we need to make a song with splicing Joel and "The Devil Went Down to GA"
