Memo to Judd Bagley: Director of Communications at Overstock.com - About Threats on AntiSocialMedia.net

To Judd Bagley, Director of Communications at Overstock.com:

Since you have recently deleted various comments from antisocialmedia.net, including certain vile, malicious, and anti-Semitic remarks from Edward Manfredonia, why not delete this threat to Gary Weiss, published on September 10, 2006, too?

"Gary Weiss is PATHETIC…his books suck …he is a weasel. In fact, there are quite a few people out there that are going to make an example out of him. He should be looking over his shoulders more carefully when he wants to engage in disrespectful behavior with people that will hurt him…economically, emotionally, and probably physically. Hey Gary…Louie P and Benny S. say hi…you $cumbag."

Question:

Did you believe that such threats that "a few people out there that are going to make an example out of him" and that "people that will hurt him…economically, emotionally, and probably physically" are appropriate to be published on a web site purportedly “created and maintained” by the Director of Communications of a public company?

Respectfully,

Sam E. Antar (former Crazy Eddie CFO & convicted felon)

I guess William gets a free pass because his hedge fund was hyping Overstock.

Unrealistic hyping seems to give you carte blanche but the Overstock spy machine would have been in high gear if an acknowledged hedge fund would have posted bearish messages. Not to mention the Overstock groupies would have gone nuts.
