InvestorVillage is the place for Overstock.com CEO Patrick Byrne, his henchman Judd Bagley, and their cronies

If you are a stock promoter, a cyber stalker, an anti-Semite, or a blackmailer, perhaps InvestorVillage’s message boards is the place for you

According to InvestorVillage’s terms of service:

You agree to not use the Service to:

a. upload, post, email, transmit or otherwise make available any Content that is unlawful, harmful, threatening, abusive, harassing, tortious, defamatory, vulgar, obscene, libelous, invasive of another's privacy, hateful, or racially, ethnically or otherwise objectionable;

Note: Bold print and italics added by me.

InvestorVillage claims:

At InvestorVillage we are committed to providing you with clean, efficient stock discussion forums. Our staff closely monitors the boards and responds quickly to reports of abuse, leaving you free to engage other members in the civilized exchange of research, opinion and ideas.

If you're a so-called "newbie," there's no need to be shy here. Ask the questions you've been too embarrassed to ask on other public boards. No one will insult you here. And if they do, simply report them, and they won't be a problem for long.

If you already know your way around the market and financial message boards--great! Here's your chance to share your knowledge and skills with other serious traders and investors in a productive work environment conducive to healthy discussion and debate.

Note: Bold print and italics added by me.

However, it seems that you need not worry about InvestorVillage’s terms of service or other representations if you are Patrick Byrne, CEO of Overstock.com, Judd Bagley (Director of Communications at Overstock.com), or their cronies. After all Overstock.com advertises on InvestorVillage.

Patrick Byrne (CEO of Overstock.com) praises InvestorVillage.com

On August 8, 2006, about the time Patrick Byrne started posting messages on InvestorVillage, using his alias Hannibal, he wrote (message number 668):

And if you had not guessed, yes I am posting here to try to help Investor Village steal share. When the hordes of bashers show up (Guess We'll have to be on the lookout for them) we want to have our powder ready to eject them.

Note: Bold print and italics added by me.

Patrick Byrne has used InvestorVillage to direct traffic to his antisocialmedia.net smear web site that is administered by Judd Bagley (Director of Communications at Overstock.com) and claims that InvestorVillage is “decent” message board

On November 26, 2006, while antisocialmedia.net was still being run anonymously by Judd Bagley, using his alias Hannibal, Patrick Byrne wrote (message number 2426) on InvestorVillage:

I think it has been a few months since I have had time even to glance at any of these boards. Of course, it seems IV is now the only decent one left.

For those who have not seen it, I suggest reading this.

I hear that GW is melting down, melting down, melting down.....

Patrick Byrne has used InvestorVillage to threaten his critics

For example, on December 23, 2006, in a post (message number 2964) on InvestorVillage, using his alias Hannibal, Patrick Byrne wrote:

Can everyone sense these guys sweating? They seem to be getting nervous, don't they? Hence the posts full of non sequitors and picking of nits about unimportant details. They apparently hope that they can confuse the average reader, as long as that reader does not go and read the original antisocialmedia.com material exposing (with screeen shots and IP addresses) these bullies.

But the average reader may still ask, Why are they so nervous, and why now? The answer is, it is because the bullies know what is coming, they know where this antisocialmedia stuff is heading, in a way that the average reader does not. They are flailing in an attempt to derail it....

Check out antisocialmedia.com to get a preview, and trust me when I say, what is coming is much better.

Judd Bagley (Director of Communications at Overstock.com) believes that InvestorVillage is the “big kids’ table”

On January 26, 2007, in a post (message number 4085) on InvestorVillage, under his alias De Daumier-Smith, Judd Bagley wrote:

Sam, with all due respect, this is the big kids' table.

Judd Bagley attempted to harass and silence blogger and antisocialmedia.net critic Scipio Africanus by identifying him. He falsely accused some other person as being Scipio Africanus.

Judd Bagley attempted to identify, Scipio Africanus (O-Smear blog), as a person named Al Petrofsky, but was wrong.

On April 13, 2007, in a post (message number 6614) on InvestorVillage, under his alias De Daumier-Smith, Judd Bagley wrote:

Re: So Scipio and Al Pertrofsky are the same guy?

Yes.

Note: Bold print and italics added.

Judd Bagley posted an item entitled “The Cousins Petrofsky” on antisocialmedia.net. He bragged about nailing Al Petrofsky. On April 16, 2007, in a post (message number 6919) on InvestorVillage, using his alias De Daumier-Smith, Judd Bagley wrote:

….the process of identifying Al was based first on a tip, which was borne out by investigative work. Still, because it initially came from outside, I've always felt a bit less secure about making the claim.

After a couple of months of observing and...you might say..."experimenting," we were ready to bring up the name for the first time. BEfore we did, I told one of the ASM researchers that as an outside validation of our work, to look for the arrival of a poster named Panglozz, who only seems to show up when Scipio needs some support. He would be shortly followed, I predicted, by a bunch of Linus Torvalds worshipers from the SCOX board.

Note: Bold print and italics added.

Judd Bagley was flat out wrong. The real Al Petrofsky complained and Judd Bagley deleted his post on antisocialmedia.net.

Judd Bagley continues Patrick Byrne’s vendetta against blogger and antisocialmedia.net critic, Scipio Africanus

On May 13, 2007, in a post (message number 7306) on InvestorVillage, under his alias De Daumier-Smith, Judd Bagley wrote:

This is going to get very interesting, very quickly, folks. To quote Patrick, I'm going to do Scipio "slow."

Note: Bold print and italics added.

Judd Bagley attempts to silence Scipio Africanus through blackmail

On Thursday, June 14, 2007, Judd Bagley sent the following e-mail to blogger. Scipio Africanus:

From: Judd Bagley
To: scipioafricanus_iv@yahoo.com
Sent: Thursday, June 14, 2007 11:51:26 PM
Subject: just thought I'd ask...

I thought I should tell you that I've have known your real identity for a while now.

Up until last week, it appeared that you'd grown tired of o-smear and all the games (which would make "outting" you unnecessary) but lately it appears that's not the case.

I don't want to cause anybody unnecessary harm, but I'm beyond tired of the lies.

If you choose to continue as you have been, I will write about you on AntiSocialMedia.net. In doing so, my goal is not to intimidate, but to let you own your words; under those circumstances, I think the lies will take care of themselves.

Having said that, I'm also very much aware of the impact this could have on your reputation, especially where you live, and I feel obligated to offer you a way out. So, if you're ready to set things right, I'll keep your name to myself and figure we'll both be karmically better off for it.

I look forward to your response (and will be PMing this to your IV account, as well).

Judd Bagley

Judd Bagley posts Scipio Africanus’ real identity on antisocialmedia.net and issues a warning

On Saturday, June 16, 2007, Judd Bagley posted Scipio’s real identity in a blog item entitled, "Hoosier daddy? ScipioAfricanus uncovered in Indiana," on antisocialmedia.net. According to Judd Bagley, Scipio Africanus is identified as Albert Kidd. He includes the following warning to Albert Kidd:

However, if in responding, ScipioAfricanus or any of his allies should question the veracity of these claims, the evidence will be presented, and Albert can deal with the consequences.

Note: Bold print and italics added by me.

Blogger and internet sleuth, Scipio Africanus did not back down

On Sunday, June 17, 2007, Scipio Africanus posts Judd Bagley’s threat (above) on his O-Smear blog. He responds:

Since the only way to damage my reputation would be to make up a bunch of stories about me, I'll assume that's what he means. Duly noted and recorded. As far as pointing out all the deception, spyware, etc. I'd put that stuff on my resume. The SEC and the Overstock Board of Directors (so they can't play dumb) got a copy of that one.

Note: Bold print and italics added by me.

Later, Evren Karpak, an Overstock.com shareholder and antisocialmedia.net contributor, threatens Scipio Africanus with blackmail on InvestorVillage

On Sunday, June 17, 2007, Evren Karpak chimes in by posting the following message (number 8205) on InvestorVillage:

Scipio / Al Kidd still has one chance. He missed a few others, culminating in his mug being featured on ASM. I hope he does the right thing. I really do because what will come down on him if he chooses not to is not a fate I'd wish on anyone. Okay, maybe Gary Weiss.

Evren

Note: Bold print and italics added by me.

On Sunday, June 24, 2007, antisocialmedia.net smear web site contributor, Evren Karpak, who has been posting messages on Yahoo under his alias evren60615, pursues Scipio Africanus:

You call? Very simple, then. Respond to this message and violate the condition ASM has set on not revealing what he has. Make your denial.

Note: Bold print and italics added by me.

Shortly afterwards, I notified Overstock.com’s Board of Directors and its Audit Committee about the Bagley – Karpak collaboration

Afterwards, I wrote the following e-mail to the Board of Directors on Overstock.com and its Audit Committee:

To the Board of Directors of Overstock.com and its Audit Committee:

Are you aware that Judd Bagley (Director of Communications at Overstock.com) is colluding with Evren Karpak (Overstock.com shareholder and antisocialmedia.net contributor) to black mail the person known as Scipio Africanus?

The use of blackmail by Judd Bagley and others working in collusion with him violates Overstock.com’s Code of Business Conduct and Ethics.

You are now on notice.

Respectfully,

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

Evren Karpak’s threat disappears from Yahoo but it remains on InvestorVillage

A couple of hours later, Evren Karpak’s threat to Scipio Africanus disappears from Yahoo. However, his threat on InvestorVillage remains published.

All of a sudden a mysterious denial of service attack is claimed by Judd Bagley on antisocialmedia.net

Later that evening, Judd Bagley claimed on antisocialmedia.net:

AntiSocialMedia.net currently under a denial of service attack, which may account for inconsistency in page-load times. Sorry.

I noticed no denial of service attack as I visited antisocialmedia.net many times.

Other false accusations, threats, and smears published in comments posted by other persons to Judd Bagley’s posts on antisocialmedia.net disappear

Then all comments to Judd Bagley’s posts on antisocialmedia.net, including a physical threat to investigative journalist, blogger, and Byrne critic Gary Weiss disappears. Edward Manfredonia’s newest smears disappear, too. For example, this threat is gone:

alpineanalytics wrote:

"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."

Posted 10 Sep 2006 at 8:36 am

Note: Bold print and italics added by me.

However, all of Judd Bagley's vile and malicious false accusations, threats, and smears that he has posted on antisocialmedia.net still remain published.

Previously, antisocialmedia.net contributor Evren Karpak had acted out on that threat by attempting to hurt Gary Weiss at least economically in a post on InvestorVillage

A couple of weeks earlier, on Tuesday, June 12, 2007, before the threat to Gary Weiss was deleted from antisocialmedia.net, Evren Karpak carried out part of that threat to“hurt” Gary Weiss “economically.”

In a post (message number 8042) on InvestorVillage, Evren Karpak wrote that he had written letters to three of Gary Weiss's publishers: Forbes, SeekingAlpha.com, and Salon.com in an effort to have them discontinue business ties with Mr. Weiss. Judd Bagley had posted a recommendation to Evren Karpak's post on InvestorVillage. That post on InvestorVillage still remains published.

Is Overstock.com’s Board of Directors and Audit Committee finally taking action about violations to Overstock.com’s Code of Business Conduct and Ethics?

On Tuesday, June 26, 2007, I sent another e-mail to Overstock.com’s Board of Directors and its Audit Committee:

To the Board of Directors of Overstock.com and its Audit Committee:

Posting personal information of critics of Patrick Byrne on antisocialmedia.net

You are alerted that antisocialmedia.net continues to post certain personal information of individuals (critics of Patrick Byrne) including the home addresses.

http://antisocialmedia.net/pmwiki/pmwiki.php?n=Main.JohnLichtenstein

I had previously alerted Judd Bagley about this issue in an exchange on the Yahoo message board while he posted under the anonymous alias antsaresocialinsects…..

Such activities violate Overstock.com’s Code of Business Conduct and Ethics.

Respectfully,

Sam E. Antar

Cc: Kenneth Israel (Securities and Exchange Commission – Utah)
Cc: William McKean (Securities and Exchange Commission – Utah)

Note: Bold print and italics added by me.

A few hours later, the personal information of two Byrne critics that was posted antisocialmedia.net disappeared.

I thought, why not ask the Overstock.com’s Board of Directors and its Audit Committee to stop having the company’s web site directing traffic to antisocialmedia.net

On Thursday, June 28, 2007, I sent the following e-mail:

To the Board of Directors of Overstock.com and its Audit Committee:

Patrick Byrne, the CEO of Overstock.com, is now copying his InvestorVillage.com posts to Overstock.com’s web site.

Link here: http://omuse.overstock.com/wiki/User:Hannibal

Certain messages encourage people to read antisocialmedia.net and contain links to that web site.

It is very apparent that Patrick Byrne has encouraged and approved of Judd Bagley’s activities on antisocialmedia.net and is now using the Overstock.com’s web site to direct traffic to antisocialmedia.net….

Note: Bold print and italics added by me.

Since, that information can still be found on Overstock.com’s web site, I guess they decided that it is alright for Overstock.com to support antisocialmedia.net.

I e-mailed InvestorVillage and its attorney about Edward Manfredonia’s anti-Semitic comments, false accusations, and smears that are posted on their Overstock.com message board

In s previous blog post here entitled, "Who is Judd Bagley trying to fool about the use of anti-Semitism to attack critics of his boss, Overstock.com CEO Patrick Byrne?," I described the relationship between Judd Bagley and Edward Manfredonia.

On Thursday evening, June 28, 2007, I sent the following e-mail:

To Paul Kaplan:

There is a message board poster, Edward Manfredonia (alias Ed Manfred) who has posted anti-Semitic comments and smears on InvestorVillage.com directed at me and others. I request that all such comments be removed promptly.

Link here:

In addition, you may read information about Edward Manfredonia’s relationship with Judd Bagley (Director of Communications at Overstock.com) on my blog.

I received no response from them.

On Friday, June 29, 2007, I sent InvestorVillage and its attorney Paul Kaplan another e-mail:

To Paul Kaplan:

As of this moment, InvestorVillage.com still has not deleted Edward Manfredonia’s anti-Semitic comments and smears. Neither you nor InvestorVillage.com has responded to me.

For your information, I have posted about your inaction on Yahoo and Motley Fool’s message boards.

Respectfully,

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

Previous e-mail below….

Note: Bold print and italics added by me.

Still, I received no response from them.

Other message board participant’s had complained about Edward Manfredonia’s vile anti-Semitic comments, false accusations and smears to InvestorVillage.com. However, InvestorVillage took no action.

However, InvestorVillage supported CEO Patrick Byrne’s efforts to boot me from their message board

On January 26, 2007, in a post (message number 4076), using his alias De Daumier-Smith, Judd Bagley complained about my questions to him on InvestorVillage:

Sam, you're starting to freak me out.

Note: Bold print and italics added by me.

On February 2, 2007, in a post (message number 4463), using his alias Hannibal, Patrick Byrne complained about my questions on InvestorVillage:

Is there anyone here who suspects that Sam is just trying to clog, or waste my time, or misdirect this discussion board? If you agree, please recommend this post. If we get over 20, I say that is proof that it is time we all agree to ignore Sam forever.

Note: Bold print and italics added by me.

On February 20, 2007, InvestorVillage unreasonably restricted me to three posts a day. They sent me a private message:

From: Admin
Date: 02/20/07 5:20:09 PM
Subject: Admin Notice: your posting privileges have been restricted

Sam:

This notice is to inform you that based on a review of numerous reports against your account for clogging and other violations of our User Agreement, we have decided in our sole discretion to limit your posting privileges to three messages per 24-hour period, subject to the terms and conditions of use of our service. If you would like to set up your own private or semi-private board at InvestorVillage, you are welcome to do so. We can arrange it so that you can have unlimited posting on your own board, again, subject to our terms and conditions. However, we are putting our foot down on the misuse of our OSTK board for your own agenda, which, for whatever reason, seems to include clogging our forum to conduct an informal and unofficial campaign of "deposition-style" messages targeting other members of InvestorVillage.

If you have any issues with our decision, please take them up with our attorney, Paul Kaplan…

Note: Bold print and italics added by me.

While I was waiting for InvestorVillage to permit me to post again on their Overstock.com message board, I criticized them on the Yahoo message board. Later that evening I was able to post again InvestorVillage.com. However, InvestorVillage.com took quick action and deleted my posts. Paul Kaplan, attorney for InvestorVillage.com wrote me an e-mail:

Mr. Antar:

As you know, your conduct on the OSTK board was deemed harassing and disruptive by many other members and resulted in dozens of complaints to board administrators. Rather than terminate your membership outright, Investor Village imposed a reasonable limit on the daily number of your posts and offered to create a special, private or semi-private board for your discussions, with unlimited posting rights. Rather than respond to this offer, you opted to post an attack on Investor Village managers, along with the full text of what was clearly labeled as a private message, in several forums. Given this apparent rejection of Investor Village’s offer, your posting rights have been suspended indefinitely. I’m sorry that this action has become necessary….

Note: Bold print and italics added by me.

I saw nothing in their so-called offer that prohibited me from criticizing their actions.

After, I was booted from InvestorVillage, on February 22, 2007, in a post (message number 5014), using his alias Hannibal, Patrick Byrne responding to antisocialmedia.net contributor Evren Karpak, quoted Karpak's previous post and responded:

"Sam has been booted permanently for posting the letter from the IV attorney on Yahoo (also now deleted by Yahoo) and attacking IV instead of responding to their attempt to reach a compromise. How do I know? Because this time he posted the new letter from the attorney, phone numbers and all, on Gary Weiss's blog comments.

Anyway, good riddance and I hope to never mention him again in a post.

Evren"

Inshallah, Pal.

Note: Bold print and italics added by me.

It appears that Patrick Byrne echoed the beliefs of Evren Karpak, antisocialmedia.net contributor and Overstock.com shareholder. On February 11, 2007, in a post (message number 4761) on InvestorVillage.com, Evren Karpak had written:

This is a public board and one of its main functions is to provide a public voice for Overstock shareholders. It is a small corner of the Internet but it is our corner. And judging by the number of people who have made it their day's work in the last two months to turn it into a cacophony of nonsense and the shrill defense they get from the miscreeants' blogs -- it does matter. I say we don't abdicate it so easily. Don't ignore Sam, report him. He somehow weaseled his way back here but we can put pressure on the Admins to kick him out again. None of us individually "determine who gets heard" but we should have a voice as a group.

Note: Bold print and italics added by me.

InvestorVillage still has not deleted Edward Manfredonia’s vile anti-Semitic comments, false accusations, and smears

Perhaps, InvestorVillage believes what Judd Bagley has written about Edward Manfredonia.

On April 2, 2007, in a post (message number 6052) on InvestorVillage.com using his alias De Daumier-Smith, Judd Bagley responded to the question:

…Ed may have a quirky way of communicating in writing, but I can assure you he's one of the more knowledgeable people I know. Ed has been enormously generous in sharing his knowledge of how Planet Wall Street works (both in theory and in practice) with me.

Note: Bold print and italics added by me.

On Sunday, July 1, 2007, I sent InvestorVillage and their attorney the following e-mail:

To InvestorVillage:

It has been three days since you were notified about Edward Manfredonia's vile anti-Semitic comments and malicious smears on your Overstock.com message board.

You have taken no action to delete such comments by Edward Manfredonia.

However, on February 20, 2007, you restricted my posting privileges for asking "deposition style" questions to Patrick Byrne and Judd Bagley.

Shortly thereafter, you terminated my posting privileges when I criticized your unreasonable decision to restrict my posting privileges.

Within hours my new posts which contained questions to Patrick Byrne and Judd Bagley on InvestorVillage.com were deleted.

Your lack of action regarding Edward Manfredonia's anti-Semitic comments and smears are shameful.

You permit Patrick Byrne (the CEO of Overstock.com) to violate your terms on service on your message boards.

You permit Patrick Byrne to use your message boards to carry out his campaign of smears on his critics.

You permit Judd Bagley (Director of Communications at Overstock.com) to violate your terms of service on your message boards.

Your terms of service clearly state:

You agree to not use the Service to:

a. upload, post, email, transmit or otherwise make available any Content that is unlawful, harmful, threatening, abusive, harassing, tortious, defamatory, vulgar, obscene, libelous, invasive of another's privacy, hateful, or racially, ethnically or otherwise objectionable;

However, you do not apply these terms of service to Patrick Byrne, Judd Bagley, and others acting in collusion or concert with them.

It is apparent that InvestorVillage believes that Edward Manfredonia's vile anti-Semitic comments, false accusations, and smears, are not as stated in their terms of service:

…harmful, threatening, abusive, harassing, tortious, defamatory, vulgar, obscene, libelous, invasive of another's privacy, hateful, or racially, ethnically or otherwise objectionable.

I appears that InvestorVillage believes that Edward Manfredonia's anti-Semitic comments and vile smears such as the following are appropriate for their Overstock.com message board

Examples:

On March 9, 2007, in message number 5446, Edward Manfredonia smeared Byrne critic, New York Times columnist, Joe Nocera:

Nocera refuses to expose the lies of Weiss because Weiss is white, while Jayson Blair was black.

Nocera is just pandering to the racist sentiments of the Sulzbergers.

Note: Bold print and italics added by me.

March 26, 2007, in message number 5835, Edward Manfredonia smeared, Byrne critic and blogger Gary Weiss:

I once accompanied Weiss to a restaurant, Sweet n' Tart, in Chinatown. Weiss ordered pig's blood. It looked scary.

But Weiss consumed the pig's blood with glee. Speaking of treyfe.

Note: Bold print and italics added by me.

April 2, 2007, in message number 6027, apparently believing another person was me, Edward Manfredonia wrote the following anti-Semitic comment, false accusation, and smear:

Sam the scam, aka tam:

No one in your synagogue lost money in the stock fraud of Crazy Eddie.

Why not? Because these individuals knew that Crazy Eddie was afraud?

By the way, Weiss believes that Jews are not held to any standards when Jews are sued by a goy.

Why else would Weiss commit perjury.

As for Stallman, I am sorry but Stallman knew that Weiss committed perjury and accepted Weiss's perjured testimony.

Michael D. Stallman. a real Mickey D, knew that Weiss had stolen money from BusinessWeek, yet Stallman accepted whatever perjured testimony Weiss offered.

Just like you and Eddie. You stole from the American public. Your friends at your synagogue did not lose money. This was stated by members of your synagogue.

You revile goyim, just like Weiss does.

Weiss is so biased against Christians that when he committed perjury in court, Weiss believed that it was not perjury because he lied to defeat a goy.

Stallman knew that Weiss had committed perjury and permitted the perjured testimony.

Which of your friends is shorting Overstock? How many?

Now Passover is approaching. So have a peaceful non-neurotic seder.

Note: Bold print and italics added by me.

In other written statements, Edward Manfredonia, has falsely accused Judge Stallman (who is Jewish) of protecting people because they are Jewish.

April 2, 2007, message number 6046, thinking another person was me, Edward Manfredonia wrote another anti-Semitic comment, false accusation, and smear:

Sam, why are you so interested in my conversations with Judd Bagley?

Why do you not elucidate upon your conversations with your friends, who are short Overstock.

How is your cousin, Eddie?

What do you know about Eddie sending money to New York for a bat mitzvah?

It is Passover. Should you not be at a seder?

It must be those shmura matzohs. They are hard on the stomach.

Note: Bold print and italics added by me.

April 11, 2007, in message number 6446, Edward Manfredonia smeared Manhattan District Attorney Robert Morgenthau:

...Morgenthau does not prosecute Jews.

Manhattan District Attorney Robert Morgenthau is Jewish.

Perhaps antisocialmedia.net smear web site contributor and Overstock.com shareholder, Evren Karpak, has an answer as to why InvestorVillage will not delete Edward Manfredonia's comments

On June 27, 2007, in a post (message number 8422), on InvestorVillage, antisocialmedia.net contributor Evren Karpak has stated:

…you and your merry band of provocateurs have complained about Ed Manfredonia to IV admins . His posts were not deleted. Are you claiming that IV administration is tolerating anti-Semitism? Why do you think they did not delete his posts?

Note: Bold print and italics added by me.

Antisocialmedia.net smear web site contributor and Overstock.com shareholder, Evren Karpak, apparently knows a little bit about InvestorVillage management. In a post on InvestorVillage (message number 2575), Evren Karpak wrote:

I had a long conversation couple of weeks ago with one of the two guys that started IV. Without divulging the content, I think I can say that their hearts are very much in the right place. I was very impressed.

Note: Bold print and italics added by me.

InvestorVillage is a great place for Patrick Byrne (CEO of Overstock.com), Judd Bagley (Director of Communications at Overstock.com), and their cronies to spew out threats, smears, false information, misinformation, blackmail, and anti-Semitic comments.
