I have learned that certain posters on TA continue to slam me and attack me. I have not slammed Shea Grimm or made any attacks at her personally for being one of several DE's who requested my removal from TA.
While I know I have been accused of getting back on TA, I will not get on TA, will not attack Shea Grimm personally, or any other DE's personally.
1. I have learned that I know two
people who know Shea Grimm.
2. My style isn't to intentionally be mean or hurtful to anyone. I want to bring happiness to the world and make sure that mean people are put in their place.
3. My fight is with TripAdvisor.com
more than it is with anyone single poster.
I welcome anyone to share any information posted on my sight. Please, do not attack, verbally abuse, or gang up on anyone. I have heard
that some posters are sharing information in a mean and nasty way. I don't sanction mean and nasty. At all times, be kind, considerate, and understanding of others.
One poster decided that it would be
wise to attack me personally. I find that personal attacks are rather useless as they aren't the reason for this discussion or argument.
This poster has joined the party of my possible legal actions because of possible threats
and inappropriate postings.
We should live in a world of accepting people and not trying to destroy people.
I appreciate the people who send me emails on what is said. Thank you!
My intentions from 2007 till my account was temporarily disabled was to help travelers, find a place that welcomed passionate travelers, and to make travel better for people.
I thought I finally
found my place in the world where I could be me without being negatively judeged.
TripAdvisor, I certainly hope, can confirm via security methods that I have never gone on TA and posted after 12-14-2015. I'm sure
they have advanced technology which uses something from location to face recognition to something technical that would confirm I haven't been on TA other than the times I got online to appologize.
I did go on TA to tell Shea Grimm
that I knew her decision to get me disabled was wrong but I held no animosity.
I did apologize to Jet83 for what Shea Grimm said was bullying on my part to keep him off TA, but that was before my account became disabled. I, however,
never ever knew that I did anything to intentionally bully Jet83. Jet83 did attack me and call me names even after I apologized. I found this to be sad and I'm shocked that TA allowed such posts. I would have thought that other DE's would have reported him
to keep things right.
I'm happy to talk with any of the posters on TA on a radio show or a TV show. I have a PR person in Hawaii who should be able to get us on the HNN morning show.
think a fair discussion on TA forums Pro and Con would be good for all concerned.
FREE TALKS ON - TA DESTROYING TOURISM?
TA - FORUMS END FREE SPEECH.
I, Edward Staak, will be happy to talk for FREE including paying for airfare, to most any group that is interested. Of course, the presentation needs to fit into my schedule.
- Created arrogant, self serving DE's that harm local businesses and often provide bad advice. DE's form groups that defend their tiny online turf and prevent new ideas from being shared.
- Attacked businesses that refuse
to buy business listings on their sight by dropping them in ranking.
- Let individuals be oblivious to the legal consequences of their postings.
- Supported bad DE's simply because the ONLY purpose of the
forum has become cheap SEO from FREE labor.
- Preferred to simply lump every poster other than DE's as worthless. In reality, TA may feel the same about DEs, but that isn't verified yet.
- Provides no acceptable
recourse for discussing or supporting a stance once disabled.
- Shunned people and canceled their account simply because they read my advertisements and agreed to post.
