2007-07-30 21:24:09 Do you have a handy list of your neighboring businesses? Are there any other retail ones aside from Heron Technologies and Outdoor Kids? I'm thinking the area needs a page. . . —KevinChin
2009-10-09 16:04:46 Somtime I put they because heron is more than just myself and we are a partnership. But when I am speaking for myself i will try and use we. —Khanh
2009-10-26 13:51:10 Just post the photo. —JasonAller
2009-12-08 10:21:38 You made legal threats. You have no basis to make them. I must demand that you retract them immediately or I will call for an immediate ban.
Furthermore, if you don't want to be associated with the comments you made with your other screenname, keepingitlegal, your only option is to remove them. If you are going to be accusing your competitors of breaking the law, you cannot do that anonymously. If you insist that your comments remain, we will insist that those comments remain attributed to you. —WilliamLewis
2009-12-08 10:22:54 Threatening to sue over someone pointing out the truth makes you appear to be what? Does it send the message to the community that you as a business owner want to send? Does it demonstrate an understanding of the wiki? Will it gain you any allies? —JasonAller
2009-12-08 10:31:53 Please do not make legal threats casually. They are taken very seriously. —Evan 'JabberWokky' Edwards
2010-06-02 16:07:40 I don't know about the rest of the people on the wiki, but I'm completely unwilling to work with you as long as you continue to make legal threats and insinuations of legal threats. I also think your attempted anonymous "outing" of businesses without a completely pointless state license is shady.
As for the comment you removed, there is no illegal threat in there. I've had threats where someone has threatened to find me at work and get into a fight and the police could do nothing. There needs to be a threat of physical violence, the ability to carry it out, and the threat must be imminent. Otherwise, it's perfectly legal. —WilliamLewis
2010-06-02 16:33:21 William what you are saying that any threat unless it is in your face should be accepted. —Khanh
Hey, that's the law. You don't think I didn't want that psycho who was threatening to find me and fight me locked up? —WilliamLewis
2010-06-02 20:51:30 Hey, Khanh. Nobody here is a lawyer (well, not myself at any rate). I would highly suggest that if you are getting threats from somebody that you deal with that person directly. —Evan 'JabberWokky' Edwards, (814) 889-8845
2010-06-04 00:37:32 Well Evan I just had a conversation with the police and they said that we definatley should not confront the person directly. They might go crazy and kill you is their comment! They said the best thing to do is have a conversation with an officer about the threat and they will confront the perp. directly. They said it is not worth losing you life over some stupid argument. —Khanh
2010-06-04 00:38:36 Oh by the way when I said Just, I meant today. Not 5 minutes ago. Please read the thread on the other page. It is my reponse. —Khanh
2010-06-04 08:26:02 Khanh, thank you for your clearly heartfelt explanation over on the /talk page. I should probably do the same, since my reaction on that page was fairly harsh. As I noted there, your safety comes first, and any time you feel it is genuinely threatened, you should absolutely talk to the police for advice and protection. My reaction was to the fact that I thought you were threatening the Wiki with the police because of the discussion. I was clearly wrong about that, so I apologize. The strength of my reaction, however, was based on past experience with web communities that have been shut down because of legal threats. It really is one of the most harmful things a user (or a non-user, for that matter) can do to a community. I can't speak for WilliamLewis, but I would guess that he, like I, simply felt very defensive of the Wiki. William always struck me as the mother hen type... :)
I'm very sorry you feel like an outsider again. In light of that fact, I'd like to offer you a warm welcome (back) to the Wiki. We really are a friendly and helpful group for the most part. Again, I can speak only for myself, but I'll do my best to avoid jumping to conclusions in the future. Feel free to hit me up if you have any questions or need any help. —TomGarberson
2010-07-07 11:12:06 I think what William is trying to say is that using words like "his"/"hers"/"mine"/"our" before "wiki page" is incorrect, unless we're talking about a User/page. Each entry on the wiki is about something, but it's not anyone's in particular, especially the ones about businesses. Kind of how like when a newspaper runs a piece on something, no one else gets a say and once it's in print, it's done. The wiki is community based, so everybody can have a say and pitch in! However, the object in focus does NOT get any extra say or privilege over anyone else, and they have no more ownership over any part of their page than I do. —EdWins
