    It's a simple equation.

    If you don't like public scrutiny, don't take public money.

    Those who object to the discussions of Earthquest and the related topics, such as they are, might want to read this! I will have plenty more to say about it and there may be more articles forthcoming to discuss as this develops. Discussions about matters of public concern are well protected in Texas!

    And, don't forget how this turned out:

    EarthQuest 2009 bond sale: where did tax dollars go - Monday, April 30, 2012 - Copyright 2007 Ourtribune.com
    Last, but certainly not least, is “Dino” Don Lessem. It was Lessem that ignited the flame of inspiration for the EarthQuest Institute in 2006. But his dreams were incinerated by the raging fire of EarthQuest’s implosion.


    In a recent letter to The Tribune, Lessem openly regretted many of the decisions he and others made regarding EarthQuest, especially as those decisions pertained to money matters. He lamented the waste and excessive salaries paid to Holbrook and others. He was appalled at the lack of interest that Leon Cubillas and the EMCID board took in regards to the Institute. He rued the complete lack of accountability on the part of almost everyone involved in the EarthQuest project.

    Surprisingly, he commended the articles of The Tribune as being “very thorough” and did not dispute any assertions that have been set forth by The Tribune. Clearly concerned about the possible demise of EarthQuest and all the money that has been lost, he nevertheless stated that “[he] is not a squanderer of public or private funds, nor a deceiver of anyone” and that he “was not paid a dime” as for efforts related to the Institute.

    If Lessem thought the articles were "very thorough" and did not dispute any of the facts therein, why is Holbrook having a total online meltdown?

    Simple,

    while he's distracting everyone with his meltdowns, he isn't having to refute any of the allegations.

    Yeah, it's called playing the "righteous indignation" card...! Some people are indignant when they are wrongly accused, others when they get caught...!Guess which kind Holbrook is?
    It seems like in this "industry" common sense is not all that common!

    re: Don Allen Holbrook IEDC Rogue Former Member / Jeff Finkle Orchestrates Cover-up

    Holbrook thinks he is going to stifle public discussions about himself and the Earthquest project. He is sadly mistaken if he thinks I will be silenced. Earthquest and his role in that now apparently defunct mess are a matter of public concern. I intend to keep linking and discussing the press coverage related to that and other publicly funded projects. I will be expressing my opinion and communicating with whomever I so desire. I will be contacting various enforcement agencies as I see fit. I will not be turning anything over to the lawyer he hired to send me the appalling letter that I am attaching here. I already told Mr. Holbrook that if he can quote any false statement of fact on here and refute it with verifiable evidence I will take appropriate action. My policy is to always publish any threats to myself or this wonderful site.

    How on earth did Frank McCrady and the EMCID board get involved with this guy??? He is doing everything he can to erase the factual and truthful public discussions across the net. He is going to generate tons more publicity for himself and the IEDC. And, unfortunately for him the new anti-SLAPP law in Texas is great!!!

    Discussion about the New Caney Dino Park - Houston Dinosaur Park
    Comment by: Admin on May. 5th, 2012 - 7:02pm

    Unfortunately, Don Holbrook has emailed me and is having his attorney send this web site a letter. I can guess at the contents.

    Personally, I don't think Mr. Holbrook did anything wrong with regards to the proposed Dino Park. But there is a lot of public money at stake, and there needs to be an open forum for local residents to discuss what happened (without being legally threatened).

    I've offered him to suggest statements he feels are libelous, and that I would remove them if I agreed with him. He has not taken me up on that offer.

    Speak only fact and opinion on these forums: if you're intentionally lying or committing libel here, there is always a possibility there will be legal consequences; and I have no desire to protect people who are deliberately misleading others, or "trolling" these forums (I can think of one person in particular, whose messages I've had to delete repeatedly).

    But, I also feel a duty not to be bullied into censoring free and legal speech on the web.

    I'll keep this site posted if I do actually receive a letter from Mr. Holbrook's attorney.

    Anti-SLAPP Law in Texas | Citizen Media Law Project

    The Texas Citizens Participation Act, H.B. No. 2973, allows you to counter a SLAPP suit against you based on your statements in exercise of your right of free speech, petition, or association. The statute provides for a special motion to dismiss, and allows (with some exceptions) for a stay of discovery proceedings while your motion is being considered. If your motion to dismiss is successful, the court will award you attorneys' fees, court costs, and possibly punitive damages against the party that filed the lawsuit.
    The statute allows for dismissal of suits based on any type of communication, in any medium, that is: related to a "matter of public concern"; or pertaining to or in connection with any governmental proceeding or issue being considered by any governmental branch; or between individuals “who join together to collectively express, promote, pursue, or defend common interests."
    Because the Texas Citizens Participation Act became effective as of June 17, 2011, there is currently no legal authority interpreting the act. If you know about any relevant cases, please contact us.
    Activities Protected By The Texas Anti-SLAPP Statute

    To challenge a lawsuit under the Citizens Participation Act, you must show that it is based on your act or acts of "communication" (defined as the "making or submitting" of any "statement or document in any form or medium") in connection with your rights of association, petition, or free speech. The statute broadly defines these rights:

    • (a) "Right of association" refers to people collectively "express[ing], promot[ing], pursu[ing], or defend[ing] common interests."
    • (b) "Right of free speech" refers to communications related to "a matter of public concern."
    • (c) "Right to petition" refers to a wide range of activities relating to governmental proceedings or issues being considered by governmental bodies.

    Although dependent on your subject matter, the right of free speech is the section of the statute that will most likely apply to statements made online. The statute defines a "matter of public concern" as as issue related to health or safety; environmental, economic, or community well-being; the government; a public figure or official; or a good, product or service in the marketplace. If a lawsuit against you involves online statements on any of these topics, the statute may provide you relief.
    My comments are primarily related to the Earthquest project in Texas and that is where I reside. I encourage folks to keep sharing newspaper articles and their thoughts on this Earthquest debacle and its principles. The truth shall set us free!

    re: Don Allen Holbrook IEDC Rogue Former Member / Jeff Finkle Orchestrates Cover-up

    I believe that public records should be public. And, those involved in humongous expenditures of public funds should be closely scrutinized. The taxpayers were trusting Holbrook to come in and get Earthquest on track and to work out the financing for it. I would expect once he was hired the "courtship" McCrady blathered about would be over and Holbrook and Mccrady would be working together to see that public funds were spent very wisely and that frugality was the order of the day. Instead this "courtship" continued for several years and included extrensive and very costly travel, meals, sporting events and more. That hardly seems fiscally responsible to me. Just how fiscally responsible is Holbrook with his business and personal finances? After making a whopping 1.2 million from the Earthquest project and associated charity Holbrook, by his own admission and that of his wife (on the Pahrump Valley Times comments) bankrupted one of his LLCs near the time the Earthquest land LLC landed in bankruptcy. I also found this:

    Someone was apparently not paying on their car loan from the looks of this. That is around the time McCrady treated the entourage to quite an expensive holiday with numerous stops at very expensive parks, hotels and resorts etc.

    re: Don Allen Holbrook IEDC Rogue Former Member / Jeff Finkle Orchestrates Cover-up

    The Holbrooks spoke out in the Pahrump Valley Times:
    Newspaper article questions theme park player’s resumé | Pahrump Valley Times
    • economic developer says:

      Well Once again small minded uninformed folks have proven they would rather spew slander and untruths versus acknowledge the facts. Vercitas is a trade name not a company. Holbrook in deed has a NV registered company, so you are woefully uninformed. By the way, he disclosed to Pahrump Town officials his firm was going through a reorganization due to a major developer not paying his bill for services rendered, he cited the global financial crisis as the basis for not paying for Holbrooks work.
      Reorganization just allows for Holbrook to rearrange and be responsible for his own debts so he can move forward responsibly… Just like Donald Trump, Kodak, American Airlines, United Airlines, Chrysler and eventually our own country will have to do so.

      I have been married to Don Holbrook for 21 years going on 22. I want to address a few of the comments above. First of all yes he does have a corporation in Nevada. Bankruptcy is Chapter 11 because we did not get paid for work he had done. It is called reorganization. And even the best of us have had to deal with situations out of our control..Over half of the Americans have had to seek some sort of assistance due to the volatile economy. We always have paid our bills and will continue to do so.
    I am guessing the developer they are referring to is Marlin Atlantis. How long were they expecting to milk that Earthquest project? The developer going bust was a minor problem. The park is a high dollar independent project that will likely never be able to secure funding. It could possibly cost upwards of 1 billion to build as planned. Costs overruns are not unheard of and must be accounted for. It was not an endless gravy train for the Holbrook's.

    If he has done 100s of projects and been so wildly successful (having pulled in 1.2 million from Earthquest and the related things alone) why is he in bankruptcy? If he gets the rest of the money from Pahrump he is asking for, shouldn't his creditors get paid in full? That is mighty convenient to file bankruptcy right before a gargantuan windfall that could be close to 1 million dollars.

    It wouldn't hurt to let the DOJ know of any questions or concerns:

    This is a joint personal bankruptcy. How much does he have stashed in various business accounts???

    re: Don Allen Holbrook IEDC Rogue Former Member / Jeff Finkle Orchestrates Cover-up

    Page 23 item # 17 on the original filing says "Describe any increase or decrease in income reasonably anticipated to occur within the year following the filing of this document." Holbrook had Pahrump on the hook for hundreds of thousands of dollars in coming payments and was working on the initial part of putting together a deal with Huber Heights, Ohio. So he should have disclosed the possible hundreds of thousands due from Pahrump to be sure. The Department of Justice can check all that out!

    1. Income from employment or operation of business
    State the gross amount of income the debtor has received from employment, trade, or profession, or from operation of the debtor's business, including
    part-time activities either as an employee or in independent trade or business, from the beginning of this calendar year to the date this case was
    commenced. State also the gross amounts received during the two years immediately preceding this calendar year. (A debtor that maintains, or has
    maintained, financial records on the basis of a fiscal rather than a calendar year may report fiscal year income. Identify the beginning and ending dates of
    the debtor's fiscal year.) If a joint petition is filed, state income for each spouse separately. (Married debtors filing under chapter 12 or chapter 13 must
    state income of both spouses whether or not a joint petition is filed, unless the spouses are separated and a joint petition is not filed.)
    None

    Year to date: $74,997.00
    Last Year: $99,996.00
    Year before: $90,000.00
    MR. - EMCID
    Where is all the income from his best selling books? Where is the money Pahrump paid? Will he amend to add the $53,800 Huber Heights paid him? What about all his talk of being a highly respected and sought after speaker? What about Australia and his other international clients he brags of and shows conceptual art for? This makes it look like his only income is a measly amount he has milked from the Earthquest project from the EMCID.

    Year to date should be through October 2011.
    Last year would be 2010. The year before, 2009, he only claims $90,000.00 in earnings??? He made roughly 1.2 million off of Earthquest and much of that was paid out of the bond proceeds and charity money in 2009. This filing does not make any sense.

    He can't be living the lifestyle we have seen him enjoying on these amounts. How did he pay for his grand European tour in 2009? I think the Department of Justice will need to sort all this out! Remember Jack Weinzierl's bankruptcy shenanigans? The DOJ attorney and I had a field day with that scammer and he panicked and begged to have the case dismissed, before any more embarrassing questions were asked or documents demanded.

    re: Don Allen Holbrook IEDC Rogue Former Member / Jeff Finkle Orchestrates Cover-up

    Don Holbrook's attorney demanded copies of reports I was making to the authorities. This is on its way to the Department of Justice, USTP.Bankruptcy.Fraud@usdoj.gov. I encourage everyone with knowledge related to the Holbrook's income and spending to come forward as well.
    United States Bankruptcy Court:

    District of Nevada
    Case 11-27072-lbr

    Don Holbrook
    Laurie Holbrook

    $74,997.00 for 2011 up to the filing date????

    EarthQuest 2009 bond sale: where did tax dollars go……
    Third, Don Holbrook, consultant, was paid an eye-popping $773,963.43 out of the bond proceeds. Holbrook is truly a consultant extraordinaire, capable of walking on both sides of one street at the same time. That is, despite the obvious conflict of interests, he represented both EMCID and the Developer Group as their respective consultants on EarthQuest.
    In an email dated April 18, 2012, McCrady acknowledged to The Tribune that EMCID had retained, and paid Holbrook, as its consultant, the sums of $27,000 and $277,000. Out of the 2009 bond proceeds, Holbrook was paid $273,963.43 by EMCID for work on tax incentive and legislative matters. EMCID subsequently paid him an additional $500,000 (as the Developer’s consultant) as a finder’s fee for the EarthQuest site.
    Consequently, Holbrook has been paid more than $800,000 by EMCID, presuming the $277,000 and the $273,963.43 mentioned above refer to the same fee. Furthermore, while Holbrook was carting off EMCID’s bank vault, he and his merry band of minions were also plundering the EarthQuest Institute for every dime it had received. Under the auspices of EMCID, Holbrook alone stripped out at least $328,255.00 from the Institute. (For details, see The Tribune article dated April 4, 2012). Altogether, it appears that Holbrook received, from EMCID and the Institute, upwards o $1,200,000 for his various, if not nefarious, EarthQuest activities.
    The level of compensation paid to Holbrook is beyond any rational explanation, let alone comprehension. What possible justification can the EMCID leadership and board make to its constituents that Holbrook was deserving of these unwarranted, outrageous, indeed, unbelievable sums of money?

    EarthQuest Institute: a betrayal of the public's trust?
    A diligent review of those records has produced a sordid tale of unbridled avarice; a story that will shock even the most cynical individual. Consider the following facts, all of which are taken directly from the federal tax returns of the Institute for the three-year period of 2008 – 2010:
    The Institute received contributions totaling $996,667.
    Don Holbrook, president of the Institute (and a consultant for EMCID and EarthQuest), received total compensation of $328,255.

    Stephen Chapple ACEcD Chairman of Economic Development Australia and National Board member Simon Millcock ACEcD will be presenting at this year's International Economic Development Council's Conference on September 18 - 21 Charlotte, North Carolina. The IEDC conference will focus on discussing how economic developers are adapting to the new normal and rewriting the rules for economic development. Their session is titled Developing Successful International Partnerships and will be facilitated by Don Holbrook CEcD IEDC 2011 Board of Directors.

    Stephen, Simon and Don are keen to expand their knowledge in the field of economic development internationally and are planning a 3-4 day study tour following the conference. The concept being developed is to meet with local and or regional development bodies whilst undertaking site visit to explore, listen, learn and impart some of their own knowledge. The current plan is to leave from Charlotte N.C. and travel via vehicle/s (depending on the numbers) no more than a couple of hours each day before meeting up with various communities.

    Don Holbrook and his wife Laurie
    Don Holbrook, a Butler Twp. native and 1979 graduate of Butler High School in Vandalia, is co-owner of the Red Zeppelin winery in Paso Robles, Calif. His wife Laurie, a Minneapolis native, is more involved in the winery than he is, Holbrook said. “I just like to drink wine,” he said.
    A developer, he has plenty of other business interests that form the bulk of his professional career, but the wine industry “just kind of sucked me in,” said Holbrook, whose parents still live in Butler Twp. Holbrook and his wife now live in Las Vegas, but he found an opportunity to invest in Red Zeppelin — which is transitioning to simply the Zeppelin winery — irresistible.
    “At first, I looked at this as purely a financial transaction,” Holbrook said. “But it was evolved into much more than that.”
    When reached earlier this week, Holbrook and his wife had just arrived in southern Australia, where they toured vineyards and visited wineries in the Barossa Valley wine country.
    “I love everything about this industry,” Holbrook said. “And we get invited everywhere.”

    Town board chair announces run for open Assembly seat | Pahrump Valley Times
    Holbrook speaking about himself says:
    And Mike Darny questions Holbrook’s accomplishments. These projects have created over 50,000 living wage jobs for hard working Americans and won Holbrook the Fellow Member award by his peers, the highest honor in his industry for lifetime achievements. On top of all this he wrote 3 books telling others how to accomplish similar results and encouraging his peers to strive to make a difference. This has made him the #1 author in his industry and Amazon ranked him as the #1 author in his genre in 2011.


    COMMUNITY VIEWPOINT: Background on Mr. Holbrook: ‘The Music Man
    The town board has already paid Holbrook and Contours Entertainment $151,000 toward this scam to date, but in the very near future another $244,000 will be considered for the next phase of Mr. Harley Kulkin’s pipe dream…… Well, Mr. Kulkin, Mr. Kohbarger and the town board have committed the town to paying Mr. Holbrook over $950,000.

    http://www.realscam.com/f11/iedc-int...html#post20397
    Page 23 item # 17 on the original filing says "Describe any increase or decrease in income reasonably anticipated to occur within the year following the filing of this document." Holbrook had Pahrump on the hook for hundreds of thousands of dollars in coming payments and was working on the initial part of putting together a deal with Huber Heights, Ohio when he filed. He has since been paid $53,800.

    A finance professional?? Where are the dollars for Earthquest? He claims that he has put together 100s of economic development deals worth over billions of dollars that have created over 50,000 jobs in this country??? He better have some ink on that!
    Don Holbrook has pulled down his lofty claims video. He stated in his blog that he would not be naming his projects. I believe that translates into they don't exist so he can't. Those representations were likely part of the reason Huber Heights hired Holbrook and paid him $53,800.00. I assume he is sweeping all that under the rug due to the fact he is being sued and foolishly threatening to sue me and possibly his other legitimate critics. I will testify as to the content of that video and this thread isn't going anywhere, so it is going to be really hard to make all that disappear. Again, why is the IEDC not sending this joker packing. Do I have to e-mail the board members with a formal complaint against this guy???

    Holbrook, according to the newspaper accounts, made at least 1.2 million off of Earthquest and he brags of best selling books, international clients and speaking engagements. How is it he can't pay his taxes and his average gross yearly income is less than $100,000.00??? Just what is going on here???

    Don A Holbrook --- 5 hours ago - quote - hide comments Dear Readers of this blog, as stated, this is a serious legal issue. Please note that I am brining litigation against Ms. Soapboxmom (Heather Dobrott et al) she received a letter from my attorney which very carefully stated she has until May 11th to substantiate with valid facts and evidence of her Libel comments. Ms. Dobrott is digging herself a very deep legal hole and her malicious attacks on my business and my professional reputation are purposeful and with willful intent to harm my livelihood. She has made very poor decisions in business and ignorance of the law will not excuse her nor any of you who choose to continue in this libel from the liabilities that are piling on yourselves. By spreading libel and then encouraging others unwittingly to participate on this page is just bringing other previously innocent people into her web of fictional conspiracy. I would encourage anyone on this web page to take note in the recent $13M Texas award of damages to those folks using and promoting anonymous libel about innocent people. At the appropriate time we will know every computer ID that has made comments on any site that aids in this process and those that make such comments must be prepared to deal with the litigation that is coming this month. If you continue to comment on me, my business, and further ruin my professional reputation and/or harm my livelihood and/or personal affairs for libel, slander, defamation or other malicious intent you do so at your own risk. For some the damages has been done and avoiding litigation is impossible in my opinion, but for those of you bright enough to discontinue your libel comments you may still avoid litigation. Be smart and do not be baited into legal liabilities by a person such as Heather Dobrott. She obviously has too much time on her hands and her mind goes to conspiracy theories as her own form of sick entertainment. That is her own affair until it harms others with such malicious intent that it wrecks their business for spreading virally false information and doing so for her own self-gratification reasons.
    monkeygouger --- 4 hours ago - quote - hide comments Anyone can have a bring a lawsuit mr holbrook. This site may bring at most 100 people to it. I doubt even 20 live in Montgomery county. You lie if you are mr holbrook. Sbm is posting on a blog about your scheme. Are you nervous? Did she find facts? You as a public figure taking public tax dollars are not immune to scrutiny from the public in a public forum.


    Put some dozers out there and clearcut to at least show initiative to build the project which has doubled taxes for EMC through speculation. All post by sbm are editorial in style. One persons opinion none else.

Please feel free to substitute the word "toilet" for the word "commode", as the word "commode" gave that post too much dignity. Oh,and by the way, and I'm sure 99% of Mont.

    Christmas Island Location

    Christmas Island is an Australian Non-self Governing External Territory, located in the Indian Ocean on the rim of South East Asia, 360km south of Java and 2600 km North West of Perth.

    The coastline of 73km comprises mostly sheer rocky cliffs 10 to 20 metres high with a few small coral and rubble beaches. The Island has a typical tropical equatorial climate with wet and dry seasons. Official temperatures range from a minimum of 22 degrees to a maximum of 28 degrees. Average humidity is between 80 – 90%.
    The Island is considered to have high conservation value due to the number of endemic bird, crab and plant species. Approximately 63% of the Island’s 135 square kilometres is gazetted National Park. Christmas Island’s economy is currently based on phosphate mining and tourism with a focus of its unique natural resources both on land and sea.

    The meltdown continues:
    The First Amendment in the age of the Internet

    08 Tuesday May 2012
    Posted by economicdeveloper in The Dark Side of Social Media & the Internet, Vicious bloggers
    Leave a Comment


    I don’t think when most of us became fascinated with the age of the Internet we could envision how it would change our society in so many ways. Now there is no doubt that it has enabled an entire new approach for instant information and that itself has spawned a huge new vocal voice. Some of these folks are just down right scary. They see themselves as super hero’s looking out for the virtues of humanity, seeking to right the wrongs that their minds have conjured up. They may have been wimps, fat girl, ugly girl, nerds or bullied in their own childhood, maybe they weren’t popular with other kids, they may have felt like misfits previously, but now with the internet, they are online warriors. They take on a persona that in the physical world they could not. The internet has become their alter-ego. Where in real life they may be shy and not outspoken on the internet as a blogger they are the epitome of everything they wish they could be. Worse yet, many of them take out their repressed anguish and frustrations on innocent people via the internet. They stalk, spy and steal information from their victims so as to use it to make their fictional story look overly sensationalized and portray their victim as an unethical, or some other defamatory image. They become the bullies and take out their own frustrations on others.
    This type of online vigilante try’s to engage others to join them, wanting validation and social acceptance. They create a truly vile and despicable conspiracy to hunt, stalk, defame and maliciously hurt their victims. Worse yet they get others using the Internet for good purposes to be misled into believing their victims are deserving of the malicious and hurtful behavior.
    The most common thread is these cyber stalkers and cyber bullies always attack any rebuttal that is voiced as being a ploy to further mislead their followers… and instead of seeking unbiased, substantiated valid facts they just ignore this responsibility and turn up their attacks. The second major trait is that they cite their basis as their right to the freedom of speech. Using the First Amendment as their defense.
    The First Amendment is a double-edged sword, it’s a right and a responsibility, and it is one where People shouldn’t be allowed to torment and terrorize in the name of free speech.
    Free Speech gives you the power of opinion and expression, but not the right to commit libel as a blogger. Of course the ultimate test is proving the actual truth. But the burden of proof is on those committing libel not on the plaintiff.
    I am hopeful that someday we will have better regulation of websites that are too tolerant of such abusive bloggers in the interest of having more viewers and thus more advertising value. When did Libel and tortiously interfering with someone business, professional reputation and livelihood, become just another cost of doing business for the media? That is the real crime. I hope you never get a pack of nutty bloggers after you, because they just aren’t mostly driven by facts but opinions and accusations. In my case they forget I am a private citizen and as such not a public figure.
    My own experience with negative bloggers is that they can’t be reasoned with. They have constructed a validation and justification in their own minds that they believe merits their attacks on the victim.
    The only true course someone has that has been targeted by such a person or group of people is to hire a very good attorney and litigate those that participated in damaging you. Slowly I am hoping the laws change and become more restrictive in their allowance of such abuses online.
    One cannot steal public information. One cannot steal Facebook photos that you chose to make public and available to share. Holbrook was using Facebook to promote himself and the Earthquest project. However, pictures of the Earthquest project principles dancing on tables might best have been kept private.

    Many might think the only crime here is the wild spending sprees with public money and the continually changing fictional groundbreaking dates that citizens making business decisions depended on and that were used to lure in Pahrump. Courting Holbrook with extravagant trips around the globe, sports tickets and meals at the finest restaurants across the globe does not seem a reasonable use of taxpayers dollars, especially when the project seems to be a no go.

    And, Holbrook, you have only $3,000.00 to your name according to your bankruptcy. How are you going to fund all these suits you are threatening? Most of the bloggers you keep harassing are in Texas as is the matter of public concern this hullabaloo centers on.

    In most jurisdictions Holbrook will not be considered a private citizen. Folks that work on public projects and speak at meetings, on news shows (some national I believe), at public appearances to promote books and dive in head first in public controversy will likely be considered at least limited public figures. He is no private citizen that ended up in the middle of this heated Earthquest debate by accident.

    re: Don Allen Holbrook IEDC Rogue Former Member / Jeff Finkle Orchestrates Cover-up

    The Story of Cyber-Stalking — Stalking Typologies and Pathologies — Crime Library on truTV.com

    False Victimisation Syndrome: This group accuses another person, either real or imaginary of stalking (Hickey, 1997) to foster sympathy and support from those around them. The majority of the perpetrators seem to be female (adapted from Zona and others; Mullen and Pathe, 1994; Mullen, 1997).
    Cyberstalking - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
    Cyberstalking is the use of the Internet or other electronic means to stalk or harass an individual, a group of individuals, or an organization. It may include false accusations, monitoring, making threats, identity theft, damage to data or equipment, the solicitation of minors for sex, or gathering information in order to harass. The definition of "harassment" must meet the criterion that a reasonable person, in possession of the same information, would regard it as sufficient to cause another reasonable person distress.[1] Cyberstalking is different from spatial or offline stalking. However, it sometimes leads to it, or is accompanied by it.[2]

    Definitions

    Further information: Stalking
    Stalking is a continuous process, consisting of a series of actions, each of which may be entirely legal in itself. Technology ethics professor Lambèr Royakkers writes that:
    "Stalking is a form of mental assault, in which the perpetrator repeatedly, unwantedly, and disruptively breaks into the life-world of the victim, with whom he has no relationship (or no longer has), with motives that are directly or indirectly traceable to the affective sphere. Moreover, the separated acts that make up the intrusion cannot by themselves cause the mental abuse, but do taken together (cumulative effect)."[3]
    CyberAngels has written about how to identify cyberstalking:
    When identifying cyberstalking "in the field," and particularly when considering whether to report it to any kind of legal authority, the following features or combination of features can be considered to characterize a true stalking situation: malice, premeditation, repetition, distress, obsession, vendetta, no legitimate purpose, personally directed, disregarded warnings to stop, harassment, and threats.[4]
    A number of key factors have been identified:

    • False accusations. Many cyberstalkers try to damage the reputation of their victim and turn other people against them. They post false information about them on websites. They may set up their own websites, blogs or user pages for this purpose. They post allegations about the victim to newsgroups, chat rooms or other sites that allow public contributions, such as Wikipedia or Amazon.com.[5]
    • Attempts to gather information about the victim. Cyberstalkers may approach their victim's friends, family and work colleagues to obtain personal information. They may advertise for information on the Internet, or hire a private detective. They often will monitor the victim's online activities and attempt to trace their IP address in an effort to gather more information about their victims. [6]
    • Encouraging others to harass the victim. Many cyberstalkers try to involve third parties in the harassment. They may claim the victim has harmed the stalker or his/her family in some way, or may post the victim's name and telephone number in order to encourage others to join the pursuit.
    • False victimization. The cyberstalker will claim that the victim is harassing him/her. Bocij writes that this phenomenon has been noted in a number of well-known cases.
    • Attacks on data and equipment. They may try to damage the victim's computer by sending viruses.
    • Ordering goods and services. They order items or subscribe to magazines in the victim's name. These often involve subscriptions to pornography or ordering sex toys then having them delivered to the victim's workplace.
    • Arranging to meet. Young people face a particularly high risk of having cyberstalkers try to set up meetings between them.[7]
    You, Holbrook, are giving your legitimate critics very nice grounds to sue you. Accusing me and others of criminal activity, libel, slander and defamation when our statements are true, factual, opinion or hyperbole isn't too bright. Concerned citizens discussing Earthquest, where the money from the project went and the principles involved hardly constitutes a group of cyber stalkers. Holbrook's conspiracy theories should have people wondering about him. Holbrook should identify the false statements of fact or for the love of God stick a sock in it!! Does he really want this kind of attention??

    When Darnell sued me my attorneys kicked his a$$. When I sued Darnell he had no choice but to remove the libelous statements he had published. I represented myself in court and worked him over until I got my way. I then dropped the case as creditors find it almost impossible collect on Texans as the law is written. Notice he called me a deranged stalker, Photoshopped pictures of me and claimed as you are that I was libeling, defaming and slandering him, when in fact my statements were true. He was totally humiliated in court twice!

    Or, on the other hand,

    they may just be normal, everyday citizens who have become sick and tired of the shenanigans of others who bury their snouts in the public trough.

    Or, they could be................................................ .. one of as many different personality types as there are people involved.

    Let's not tie ourselves down to stereotyping people here.

    Who knows WHERE that could lead ??

    Have/get your snout in the trough

    Definition:

    to have or get a share of a supply of money or some other advantage which people eagerly and sometimes dishonestly take

    "The council had been handing out grants indiscriminately, and people were hurrying to get their snouts in the trough"

    (Definition of have/get your snout in the trough from the Cambridge Advanced Learner's Dictionary & Thesaurus © Cambridge University Press)

    re: Don Allen Holbrook IEDC Rogue Former Member / Jeff Finkle Orchestrates Cover-up

    BK attorney says:
    If your previous bankruptcy was a Chapter 7, it will be 8 years before you can receive a second Chapter 7 discharge. You’ll have to wait 4 years if your second filing will be for a Chapter 13 bankruptcy.
    The filings were on 11/30/2007 with a chapter 7 in Arizona and 10/31/2011 with a chapter 13 in Nevada. Holbrook's latest bankruptcy may get thrown out on that basis alone.

    Here are the files from the 2007 chapter 7 filing. This wasn't discharged until 2010. Why were the hundreds of thousands he earned with Earthquest not used to satisfy his debts???

    Don't forget how you showed BoggyBoy Fiedur up for running a site where women's dirty knickers were one of the best selling products on offer. The most expensive libel solicitor in UK dropped his attempt to sue both you and me when you took up the challenge to make BoggyBoy and his expensive solicitor retreat from the battle. I don't envy this Holbrook guy in his battle with SBM the dragon slayer!

    Holbrook was enjoying a European vacation in 2009 while still wallowing in his chapter 7 bankruptcy that wouldn't be discharged until 2010. So, he lives the lifestyle of the rich and famous while his creditors just get screwed. If only they had known how he was living it up while writing off and discharging mountains of debt. Disgusting!!!
