Comment on A Puzzling Escalation in the Golan by Mustap

Samer,

Anything can be made newsworthy on this and any other media. You’re only presenting assertions because you don’t have anything of substance to argue with. For example: I could post it here and fake ignorance seeking opinions on what the information means which I cannot decipher and have no clue why it landed on my doorstep. Besides this is not a news media outlet.

Your challenge has failed from the outset, because you’re confused about who has the obligation to protect your personal information. If you want to limit publicizing your info ONLY through this blog, then this is how it goes without any legal ramifications whatsoever.

I make the comment. It takes QN several hours or a day or two to notice it and delete it. In the meantime, many readers get a peek at it and they too may choose to publicize it by their own means. We’re assuming here there are lots of mischievous actors, which may or may not be a far fetched assumption. And considering your very far fetched assumption that I will actually be able to get hold of your info, then you have no other choice but to allow for a far less far fetched assumption.

The point is YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION HAS ALREADY BEEN COMPROMISED. And I don’t have to publish it anywhere else but here.

You don’t want to interact? Who cares?

And just to blow the final blow into your ridiculous façade of presumed sensitivity to others and not wanting anyone to pitch in on so-called dialogs of yours, it was you who first pitched in on an interaction that you had nothing to do with in the first place. You know? The spin about Nusra?

Who are you trying to fool? Either follow your own rules, or throw in the towel and go on with your day.

Mustap,

You’re thinking of leaks that have been made public and been sustained because they have been deemed newsworthy. My social security number is not newsworthy.

My challenge still stands. I disagree with you that my personal information is compromised. I think it will be quite hard for you to get it. But even if you do get it, I know there are millions of ways you can publicize it, but I never challenged you on those other ways. I only challenged you on making it available through this blog.

Do you think I would be commenting here if this blog wasn’t hosted in the US?

But anyway, we’re veering way, way off the original topic. I registered my complaint about Issa’s remark to AP, which is really the only thing I initially set out to do. In our ensuing argument, you’ve revealed that you don’t care who anyone is here or what anyone thinks. I think this by itself is grounds not to engage or interact with you from this point on.

The problem is that it’s easier not to comment here than to do so and then ignore your responses. Isn’t that ironic seeing as how you and Issa are so damn concerned about censorship? :)

Low oil prices frightened the market temporarily. Now the “war” dividend is upon us. A big thank you to all the ME dictators out there (you know who you are). $2/gallon! Yippee! Who’s buying a used Hummer out there? Samer?

Samer,

I’m not going to bother about the opening part of your last comment which is full of disjointed contradictions and innuendos. Let’s go straight to your challenge, and I’ll show you that it would have been best for you not to venture into the legal arena, which you correctly admit is not your specialty. Instead you should have kept yourself to your area of expertise and avoided projecting the appearance of the ‘omniscient’, as I indicated above in an earlier comment, a well-known Arab trait which seems to have not melted away in your melting pot adventure as quickly as your native Arabic.

Assuming that I’m the mischievous type who somehow got hold of your social security number, then neither QN nor I are in fact legally responsible for keeping your personal information secret. Actually, you cannot even sue QN for keeping the comment on his blog, nor I for that matter for making that comment. I’m NOT the party tasked with protecting your personal information, nor is QN. Of course courtesy requires that I keep it secret and QN to delete it. But law does not obligate me nor does it obligate QN. Your personal information HAS ALREADY BEEN COMPROMISED. Your only recourse is to sue the government for not doing what it is supposed to do. Even if QN deletes the comment, what prevents me from making your social security number public by other means while maintaining it came to my possession accidentally? Example a form from the government was addressed to me inadvertently and contained all that information of yours by mistake. Since, I’m the mischievous type , I make several copies of that form and negligently drop them in several public places on the premise that I’m not concerned about the information therein. And there are millions of other ways to publicize the information once it has leaked.

As for your full name, I didn’t ask you for it. It didn’t mean anything to me and still doesn’t.

So 3issa, are you going to pledge your allegiance to the Wise Emir Al Mo’meneen the King ? As this troll has been begging you to do. Or are you a revolutionary but too scared to criticize his Majesty?

Samer, this weasel is a pathetic troll, I’m surprised you didn’t pick up on that already. Ignore him.

Mustap,

Wow! You’re such a paranoid mess it’s impossible to reason with you. Actually, it’s frightening how off the beaten path you are. I am amazed at QN’s patience that he’s put up with you for as long as he has. Yuck! Yuck! Yuck!

1) Relax! I never issued a threat and never even called for censorship. I only made a remark that without blog moderation one is best off refraining from commenting here. Blog moderation does not equate to censorship.

2) You cannot claim that nobody was offended by Issa’s remark other than me because you didn’t conduct a poll or bother to ask even the person the remark was addressed to. You assumed in this case that silence equated to consent. Did you consider the possibility that maybe everyone is afraid to complain considering how crazy you get in response?

3) You cannot argue that anyone is selling anything on this blog. An actual good or service has to be exchanged for the transaction to qualify as a sale in the eyes of the authorities.

4) You want to call this a public forum, go ahead. I think of it as more of a dialogue forum. Fine, we can disagree on the semantics. I am not going to tutor you on how to socialize, but you really are ruining it for everybody.

5) You do not have the liberty to do whatever you please here, and I will demonstrate that to you with a very real challenge. I have already told you my name and my place of residence, in the process affording you a lot of goodwill that neither you nor Issa has reciprocated to me.

Now here comes the challenge: Why don’t you try to discover my social security number and post it as a comment on this “public forum”? This is about as personal and private as information gets in the US and you would be doing so completely without my consent, since while I am not a lawyer I am also not stupid.

If you get this far and QN does not immediately delete your comment in response, I guarantee you that he will be hearing from a lawyer. Again, despite your paranoia this is not a threat. I am only engaging in this exercise to try to drill it through your skull that you cannot do whatever you please here. Your dreadful inability to socialize decently aside, restraining you from certain activities here does not equate to an egregious and intolerable curtailment of your liberties.

Nice post. However, a lot of what is said can easily be applied to men of all races, especially White men, from my 12+ years of experience in the dating world.
