Hi Arindam, it is Thursday morning here, Got my morning coffee. Looks like
Maharaj was very busy spamming again, last night. More below....

Yeah, but here are two facts as I've surmised: first, the ISPs almost
don't care what you do as long as its not hacking that ISP. The subscriber
money is more important than good netiquette. Second, I'm sure Maharaj is
running his own ISP and pays for a newsfeed (or gets his newsfeed by some
other arrangement) so he is boss; once your flow goes out, almost no ISPs
elsewhere really care. So that is how he gets away with it. And, if you
want to go further, then you'd have to launch litigation and that will
cost you nothing less than 4-6 figures in legal fees. The other approach
is to hack his boxes and you have to know how to do it, not get caught,
and have a lot of persistence. I know some details about this, but won't
post them openly here.

There is a very large amount of this going on, already, even by pretty
innocent people. Just look on alt.politics.economics, for example. NG
copy-paste doesn't hurt the mainstream media that much because 99% of
internet traffic is http, and not nntp. Music sharing is probably ftp, and
the music industry has been suing the asses off these guys, too. And,
putting copy protections on, getting people pissed, too.

In other words, these were quasi-

I was having trouble with a guy on acc. Calling me names and then one day
he started putting _my_ name in the "from" field in the headers. That is
use of my name without my permission, fraud, and more. I sent an abuse
complaint both by email and physical letter. So far, no response. I could
hire a lawyer and then I'd get an answer. But, I've heard of this before.
Again, its not what is right or wrong, but if you have enough money to
_buy_ your "freedom" to do something. If this guy on acc continued to give
me the trouble, then I'd be looking for a lawyer.

Demagogery, demonization and all those "Adolf Hitler" techniques you can
find in books that deal with the practical psychology of manipulation,
cult formation, and defects in human thinking, and other psychologies. If
you take ignorant-superstitious-gulible-unsophisticated people (such as
are found almost everywhere, even on NGs) and play your cards right, you
will get at least some following, sooner or later. Maybe even more, faster
in 3rd world places.

Massive posting of

I was mildly offended with his "Hindu supremacy" post some time back, but
when he sellectively attacked Christian priest sex abuse and totally
ignored Hindu priest sex abuse cases that could be easily found by Google,
then I knew that this guy was a nut-case. Then, I did a Google search on
"Maharaj FAQ" and found several. The descriptions were accurate. So, we
have, basically, an enemy of the people, and an enemy of the public good.

Its a gestapo intimidation smear tactic. And, there is so much fear of
"exposing" real names, and it is such a fear of this vulnerability and he
knows he can do this and get away with it, and so it is hard to fight the
guy except the way I am doing it, and you are helping by not being
intimidated. So, if there are any reasonable people out there, this should
reinforce "our side" of the conflict.

It is simply intolerable
> that these cowards attack those with a reputation.

I know. We had this guy McCarthy decades ago who struck fear in our govt
and then when the guy couldn't back up his claims, he just fell like a hot

A lot of people don't like Maharaj and for all of the counter-bashing that
I am doing, it is interesting that there is not a groundswell of support
for jBm from his followers. Otherwise, I'd be mobbed off these NGs by tons
of anti-me posts. I don't see them, so, ...Maharaj is really posting to a
black hole.

Simple name-calling probably won't do it. Real slander/defamation would
have to show that he has harmed you, financially or with serious mental
depression, need a lot of testimony from psychiatrists, etc.

He has never explained his own "Dr." before his name. I'll be glad to give
the details on my PhD, but no one askes. He is a hypocrit and bigot.

These are damned lies, made

Yes, but if you look for a job and the next employer checks with your
degree granting institution, then jBm's claim can't hurt you. If the
employer pays some private detective to get the dirt on you, then they
find this shit by jBm, and if they read it carefully and find out where
its coming from, and if they know your past history and a lot of India was
very communist decades ago, I hardly think it will hurt you. What the
hell, we've got 100,000 Chinese (communist) kids in US colleges, lots of
Chinese working in all kinds of jobs in the USA. Think their past is
hurting them?

He loudly tells these lies, and when I retaliate, he picks

Yeah, he is a hypocrit. You're doing nothing wrong. Nothing.

I have another notion: "Jai Maharaj" is not just aka Jay Stevens, it may
be an alias and that means maybe we're dealing with three identities, the
third of which, the "real" person is yet to be identified, let along the
three way connection. This is why I posted the "foreign agents" piece.

Our FBI, etc. should be following these people.

But the US authorities

Yeah, I know that, too. And, his sellective anti-Christian attitude would
be a hate crime if there were a national hate crime law (I'd have to look
this up), but most hate crimes are local. We have one in our neighborhood
and they do prosecute people, fine them, and put them in the clink for
some period.

Hinduism does not need
> the "support" of shadowy criminal entities as this jBm.

I would think not, too.

Otherwise, jBm is an example where freedom of speech lets the monsters get
away with murder. Alternative? Take away freedom of speech? I'd rather
keep it and try to deal with the monsters like JBm.

See you tommorrow? I'll be busy for most of today.

Wonderful wonderful comedy. Bollywood at its brilliant best.
The scene with the tiger is not trick photography. Original story of a
guy who is a jinx, so much so that casinos hire him when the punters
are winning too much.
The erotic dance at the honeymoon ,

the top class music , great acting by Akhsay and Lara Dutta a real
life miss world. Its all so good that this is going be one of the
biggest block busters ever.
