    I invited Jim Hobuss (the alleged censorhappy spammer) to reply to the 
    list, and he took me up on my offer. Previous message:

    I don't know you, and I don't know what your interest is in this. What I
    do know is the following:
    1) The email sent to Fraase originally, which he refers to as spam, was
    not illegal. It included valid contact information, and remove
    2) The snippets of email Fraase includes on the referenced Web page he
    posted are fabrications of the actual correspondence that occurred
    between us.
    3) The name-calling and character bashing Fraase includes on his site
    present a situation for him where he is culpible for disruption of
    business, slander, and defamation of character.
    4) My attorney sent Fraase a letter, again which he misrepresented,
    seeking immediate removal of the onerous Web page.
    5) Fraase is continuing his beligerance in this matter. Therefore,
    consequential and more severe actions will now be initiated and followed
    through to conclusion. An acceptable conclusion is no longer a removal
    of the Web page.
