3 thoughts on “Lomax v. WMF”

  1. You were recently discussing your lawsuit on Reddit with Vigilant so I want to offer a few thoughts. I am not one of your defendants but I have been following this.

    In regard to your lawsuit none of your other defendants are going to be served. There are quite a few of them but none of them live anywhere near you. You live in the US and many of the others live in Europe or different states to you. There are jurisdiction issues. You are not going to someone living thousands and thousands of miles away from you served over a Wikipedia ban. You are living in a fantasy land.

    Then you have the problem that nobody in writing has defamed you, yes literal writing that is VISIBLE. None of your listed defendants defamed you on the WMF servers in writing. You say there is defamation but it is ALLEGED private defamation in secret emails. No judge is going to by that. Jones Day noted your whole case rests on an unlikely unproven idea. It’s an insane conspiracy theory. There is no actual EVIDENCE you have been defamed. You were unable to link to it in your replies.

    In your filed replies you were not able to point to any defamation on the WMF servers. Various users saying they want to have you banned, or saying they want your cold fusion material deleted is NOT a crime, nor libel. It is not defamation to call you an “internet troll” or offer a personal opinion about cold fusion.

    No real life crimes have been committed – you are basically suing a bunch of people because you were banned on Wikipedia and the WMF published your username “Abd” as banned. Do you realise how childish this all is? It is a waste of the courts time and you know that. “Abd” is not your real name. You have no business and you have not suffered any economic damage (which you have admitted) and Jones Day took you to point for.

    As for your other defendants they are not the WMF, a few of them might be admins (Guy Chapman, Michael Umbrecht etc) but they did not globally ban you, so they are not responsible for anything.

    You basically filed this lawsuit to abuse those defendants and you have admitted you are playing a game. In your recent reply to Vigilant you describe your lawsuit as a “game”. You do not care if you win or lose. You are basically trying to piss the WMF off by wasting their money on Jones Day whilst you are pro-se and pay nothing.

    In European countries there is also the issue of one-year defamation law. Your entire lawsuit in regard to “defamation” about your Wikipedia ban on the WMF servers is from activities in 2017. You filed the lawsuit in 2018 a year AFTER the activity on the WMF. We are now in 2020.

    Once your case against the WMF is dismissed this year by the judge there is NO chance of you serving any of the other defendants. You repeatedly say you want to go back and “re-amend” your complaint but you will not be allowed to do this. You have wasted the court’s time, it is abuse of the court system and you know it as Etherman a lawyer told you on Reddit. Please stop what you are doing and stop harassing your defendants by publishing all this nonsense on your blog. They are all silent but you pop up every week and can’t stop harassing them. Jones Day have likely seen all of your blog posts and threads about your defendants. You are only making it worse for yourself.

    1. This was posted through a TOR exit router, and I find it unlikely that a real attorney would use such. This is what is called “concern trolling. It raises a whole series of familiar arguments. It is quite unlikely that any independent lawyer would write this, so this is probably one of the Smith brothers and I doubt that any of the other defendants would write such a thing. There is no ongoing “harassment” of the general defendants, and this could only with any reason at all be said about the Smith brothers, who are often documented here, because of what they have done and continue to do. So this is from the Smiths, 99%.

      By the way, if the author is not a lawyer, US law was just violated. Not sure that will make any difference, just sayin’ The email address claimed to be a lawyer, as well as the post.
