Very funny.

: The way that you initially stated the matter was "Take down the web site
: or im suing"  That doesn't sound as if your "lashing" out or being a
: "bully"?  Which is quite a contradictory to your subject line of "Polite
: Request" and if you don't see that then you are blind to the matter.

It would be impolite not to provide an opportunity to remedy the problem.

: No, I think the way you approached the situation was childish,
: unprofessional, and hard headed.  If you were to have send a "Polite
: Request" as stated in this subject this would have probably been a
: more civil exchange but no, you had to go into turbo mode and threaten
: lawsuits from the get go.

I am merely informing you of my intentions.  I'm sorry if that bothers you.

: :  have the right to perpetuate the harm sought to be done by the hacker.

: The harm DONE BY THE HACKER is the key phrase.  If anybody wanted your
: information be it your home address, pager number, place of business they
: could have got it through any means on the internet.  It is readily
: available for all to see.

That's not the point and you are fully aware of that.  Given that the pages
have been modified already, it is obvious that the smear against me is being
maintained for reasons other than archival integrity, as has been made clear
in a message from your colleague.
