Hey Ray,

I just got off the phone with my buddy Kim Jong-Un over in North Korea. He thinks you’re really cute and asked me to send you this:

Lally aleges Wise Kingdom spawns terrorism. Complete nonsense and incoherence.

Wise Kingdom fights terrorism wherever it happens to be. Also, Wise Kingdom maintains has no shared interests with zios whatsoever. Sword’s dance with a terrorist? You kidding me?

Wise Kingdom cannot be made responsible for Iranian theocracy economic woes. You need good economic planning to succeed like what the late Wise King did. He made giant economic progress in his realm which earned him the praises of all the Saudis. Iranian mullahs instead spend their hard earned dollars on killing Syrians and Iraqis while poor Iranians suffer and starve. At the same tome mullahs eat all the chicken there is. May be it’s time now to for mullahs to turn veggie and allow the poor people to have some protein. And why don’t mullahs go and learn TRUE wisdom in Saudi schools instead of complaining?

Will bibi be inducted into the Parade of Swords by a ruler who may not recall the proper moves? He should make all good effort because, after all, the Izzies owe the terrorist spawning kingdom so much, including the following :

“Maybe. In the meantime, the US and Iran have reached a “temporary armistice agreement on the nuclear issue,” said one of the participants who is involved in the issue, “an agreement which actually serves Israel’s interests and weakens Iran, both because of the ongoing sanctions and because of the well-times fall in oil prices.”

This is the heaviest economic blow the Iranian administration has been dealt, “thanks to a quiet dialogue between Washington and Riyadh.”

In a very simple and sombre ceremony, the great man praised by far and near, friend and foe, was laid to rest today. Pictures that covey the greatness of the man and the simplicity of his last place of rest, a message to the rest of the world, especially its leaders, that greatness and wisdom is not found in pomp and fanfare,

Even on his last day above this earth, the great King had a message for the whole world, a testimony to the firm belief of the universality of the message he was entrusted to uphold.

While the world felt the deep loss, assurances have become crystal clear that continuity of Wisdom is ascertained.

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?

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.

Seriously, in the absence of posting guidelines and effective moderation around here, the only sensible option left is to refrain from commenting altogether.

Samer,

Please do what you want, but I wouldn’t let anyone deter you from holding a conversation or posting your own thoughts. They certainly have no concern about what they post. We are fortunate to live in a free society; let’s promote it! We’re lucky that we can say what we want. Most arabs and muslims don’t have that luxury.
