WARNING: ZERO TOLERANCE FOR GOSSIP & MEDDLING BY BUSYBODIES

 


As I have stated many times in my reports, I am a fierce defender of my privacy. My life is not an open book for all and sundry to peruse; nor do I have an open door through which the uninvited are free to invade, to interfere in my personal/professional business.


I run a public website FOR INFORMATION PURPOSES ONLY. The readers may make of the content what they will. I am entirely independent in my work and do not answer to anyone for what I report and publish. It is no one's business but mine. I also don't give a tinker's damn “what people think”, or if they approve, or not.


But as always, there are those people who simply do not respect the privacy and personal boundaries of others. They attempt to meddle in my business and lacking all discretion, they seem to believe they have the right to appoint themselves as unwanted intermediaries; to presume to speak about me, even FOR for me, based only on their subjective opinions and unwarranted assumptions; to act as Town Criers, spreading gossip far and wide. These individuals could not possibly be more misguided, or more WRONG.


It has come to my attention that one individual has been sending defamatory messages to certain of my friends, behind my back, in apparent efforts to discredit my work, with false accusations, and making claims that I am “wrong” in what is published in certain of my reports. I have no idea how many people these defamatory messages have been sent to, but judging from past behavior, there may be quite a few.


If anyone reading this has received such defamatory messages, then you may know the identity of the person to whom I refer, and for the record, I guarantee the messages contain false information and should be disregarded.


So here is my warning:


If anyone has anything to say TO me, they are free to say it to my face. If anyone has something to say ABOUT me, they are free to say it publicly, in any venue they choose, right out in the open, rather than lurking in the shadows, spreading gossip to selective recipients.


I can then choose what I will do in defense of my own honor by addressing the issue publicly.


But I have ZERO tolerance for gossip, meddling, and attempts to influence others against me. There is no honor in this behavior, and I have had enough!


Lastly, consider this:

Would you say the same words in the presence of the person you are talking about, whether they are true or not?
