RIP Philo

cover you ass Jeneane Sessum

For the record

It is terrible that someone has made death threats against Kathy Sierra. I hope that she pursues those individual(s) vigorously. I expect that she will use that same intense energy to exonerate those who did not make those threats. Since it is unclear what sort of legal proceedings may follow, or who they may target, I will not comment further at this time.

Who’s the real meanie and what does that mean anyway? Who will the Mean Kids pick on next? Kathy Sierra? Doc Searls? IBM is a Linux shop for goodness sakes, don’t tell me none of that rubs off on Doc.

..Oh Frank.Scum fuck.

Am I reading that right? Jeneane Sessum is joining 'Joey' in threatening to sue Kathy Sierra?

That's very interesting. I do draw conclusions from that sort of thing. Kathy accurately laid out Sessum's connection with the boards where the threats were being made. When someone threatens to sue over this sort of thing, it almost always is because they are trying to distract attention away from their complicity.

i think it's more like she can't manage to shut up entirely about the issue, but saying much might be a problem later if she sues or is sued.  As far as I under she and frank are both posters on the "meankids" blog which was dedicated to saying nasty things about people.

OK, so she is saying she wants to say something, but her lawyer has advised her not to.

I think it is a foolish strategy since Kathy already indicated that she is only looking for ip addresses and an apology. Frank gave those things and all is forgiven. If Jeneane would say 'I am ashamed to have been involved in that site and offer you my apologies.', all this would go away for her.

But some people are stubborn.
