OK. He terminado con tus escritos,Gerardo!
Two more points (not that I expect you to take any notice but they fill in more pieces of the picture for my files on an ephemeral unconvincing polemicist (like poor old Sai Critic and the exotic Ram Dass Awle).
O’Leary: yr comment is too glib, NOT justified, as usual because you have not bothered to CHECK the facts! Sloppy Joe.
Lisa Tice: Another bad move! This shows one of yr Achilles heels to anyone who reads her comments and yr resulting furious foot-stamping tantrum. (It may further damage the Achilles tendon!)
Such instinctive nasty emotional and ’ad hominem’ reactions to criticism of your idiosyncratic pronouncements reduce yr already precarious credibility.
Triste, como sueles decir tu.
Que te vaya bien!

What does this email mean? I can’ make any sense out of it (very much like your writings about Sathya Sai Baba)!
There is someone using the name “SloppyJoe” in a yahoo group. That person is not me. It is Sandt (supposedly). If O’Leary is talking about me, it would serve him well to email me himself. Simply making blind accusations, without backing it up, does nothing in favor of his criticisms against me.
And if Lisa Tice’s comments are somehow supposed to aid your credibility, you might as well rely on someone who knows how to read...because, I am not a “she”. I am a male. This is a pretty well known fact. “Gerald” and “Joe”, on last check, are male names. Despite this fact, Lisa Tice can’t even get my gender correct! Very much like how she gets her “facts” correct!
Brian~ your email shows how you can’t take just and fair criticism. You crumble and reduce yourself into a ball of reactions and child-like finger pointing. Still, you continue to say I am engaging in ad hominem tactics, yet you have already told me you have not read my article! If you have read my article, I will duly note you have not refuted any of the points I made in my article. Either way, Brian, your contradictory positions have been exposed.
Using latin fallacy phrases will not bolster your case. And I suggest you email me in English. I do not speak Spanish.
And once again, if you have nothing of substance to email me with, please don’t email me. I have better things to do with my time than listen to your whining and sniveling. Honestly!

Hi again, Sloppy, Slippery, Selective, Propagandistic, Over-excitable and Increasingly Malicious Joe/Gerardo:
Finally, I had a little time to spare on frivolities, so I decided to see if I cld personally access yr diarrheal effusions, on which I have kept basically informed by my friends.
From the little I have seen, I am still unimpressed by your “findings” (totally unsupported by valid research), your bias and yr immature tantrums. Neither am I surprised by the dubious allies that you have found. Stick with foul-mouthed Rebello and the idiotic Lisa. You seem to belong to one another on the negative fringes of the Internet.
A question: Isn’t a lot of yr website hidden to the innocent visitor? I will now have to undertake a detailed search of the URLs I have been given (which I have not seen so far).
For one thing I AM grateful during the prodigious expense of time in the self-promotion of Jm (or whoever you may be): better META tags. Having been sent your hysterical diatribe against “theft”, I spent an hour or so on the Internet (which you did NOT invent - I’m sorry to inform you!) and I found many useful FREE ‘tweaks’, for which you seem, characteristically, to claim personal credit. The story of yr life? (Even the gimmick of announcing the visitor’s IP number is a free dowmload!)
In view of the high level of ignorance displayed about SSB’s Discourses, on which you pontificate and thunder, I imagine it is too much to expect some basic research and factual criticism from you at some stage in the future. In which case, your unsupported Olympian “judgements” can never be taken seriously.
If you yourself have revealed yr sham ‘Independence’ and if your denial of ssb’s Divinity upsets most devotees, where on earth does that leave you? Up the creek without a paddle?
||OCTOBER 2007 - BRIAN STEEL’S EMAIL:
From: Brian Steel: firstname.lastname@example.org (October 6th, 2007)
Subject: Your latest Rumpelstiltskin rant
I was interested to see your latest uncontrolled diarrhoeic tantrum directed at the well known scholar, Kevin Shepherd, for daring to denounce your crude and ad hominem Internet antics.
Who on earth do you hope to fool with such concentrated solipsistic drivel and whining? It seems that your misdeeds are catching up with you at last and, shock, horror! some of your victims are actually complaining in print. Well, you can hardly complain about that, can you, after a couple of years of concentrated crude propaganda - only possible on the Internet?
On a separate issue, I deplore your recent criminal pagejacking of my professional web site through a spurious link inserted in August and I intend to bring this blatant googlewashing to the attention of Google themselves. I shall also inform them of other (crude but time-consuming) tricks of yours to abuse their system that I have recently detected while following up the personal googlewashing.
And there may be another even more serious Internet matter pending but for the moment, I will just leave you to sweat over that. Rest assured, you have gone much too far with your antisocial plots against too many people and in the long run, your technical Internet skills cannot disguise the weakness of your arguments, your deliberate malice, or the total lack of principles of which you seem inordinately - and so misguidedly - proud.
For your limited target audience, you delight in insulting people and glibly accuse them of deceit and lying, etc. with no convincing evidence, yet you engage in these same activities and other offensive tactics on a daily basis. Ever heard of Hubris? Possibly not - Look it up in the Dictionary- but it seems to me that it could be catching up with you. I do hope so.
PS I posted the following the other day on your digg.com site when I became aware of it. Just in case you missed it.
To Digg com: Moreno
I notice your megalomania has increased superhumanly in the past 3 years since we corresponded briefly and unsatisfactorily, Joe/Gerald/Gerardo.
Since you now have this open blog as well as your multiple spiderwebs, I take the opportunity to object most strongly to your unsupported personal slurs against me (liar? deceptive?) and many unsupported claims about my SSB research. I also challenge you to present concrete evidence against my major findings (divinity claims, storytelling, lack of omniscience, the Discourses, and so on). Without going into further detail at this time, consider the following grave weakness in your stance: If you agree with me (and many others) that SSB is not God on Earth, why do you not acknowledge and support my research which agrees with your point of view?
Your techno-savvy stacking of the Internet Search engines in favour of your propaganda and against those who speak up (very convincingly) against your bullying (e.g. Alan Kazlev, Sanjay Dadlani and Kevin Shepherd) is another antisocial feature of your labyrinthine operations of which innocent people should be made aware. (BTW: Do you cope with the workload unaided?)
Congratulations on being ejected from Wikipedia! Quite an achievement. But richly deserved.

||OCTOBER 2007 - RESPONSE TO BRIAN STEEL
From: Joe (October 6th, 2007)
Subject: Re: Your latest Rumpelstiltskin rant
To: Brian Steel
For starters, Kevin Shepherd is not a “well known” scholar. Care to substantiate your claims with verifiable sources? Do tell me which universities, professors and authoritative books on religion (or any other topic) have cited him? Anyone who self-publishes their works can get it listed on Amazon and other book-selling outlets. So that is no great accomplishment and that is not indicative of being a “scholar”. Nothing I said about Kevin Shepherd was incorrect. You have not refuted anything I said although your crybaby-whining would indicate otherwise.
Do tell me what your scholarly credentials are. I notice that you also failed to list any credentials on your websites although Barry Pittard and others have called you a “linguistics expert” and a “scholar”.
Go ahead and report me to Google. Your threats mean nothing to me. My activity on the internet is no different that the activity that ex-devotees have engaged in for years. If ex-devotees feel they are entitled to act a certain way on the internet, then I am doing no wrong by following in their footsteps.
Your alleged sensitivities to “bullying” and “crude and ad hominem internet antics” is one huge farce. You have said absolutely nothing about the vicious smear campaigns leveled against me by Sanjay Dadlani, Tony O’Clery and Alan Kazlev. I have been accused of posting on teen porn sites, being a homosexual, being investigated by authorities, having mental problems, being sexually abused by Sai Baba, being a shit and piss porn fetishist, being a stooge, associating myself with porn stars, being funded by the Sai Organization, being a pedophile groupie, going to brothels, etc. (the list goes on and on). Sanjay and Tony have posted hundreds of defamatory posts against me on the internet and you said nothing about their behavior.
And for your information, Alan Kazlev went on the attack first. I responded to him after he decided to diagnose me with his bogus psychological profiling and bold faced lies, claiming that I see Sai Baba as a pretend homosexual lover and that he massaged me with oil, etc.
So do not waste my time with your garrulous, pseudo-morality whining. You are biased and a hypocrite. Your emails prove that abundantly. Therefore, I ask that you kindly refrain from engaging in the very same behavior you allegedly find so repulsive in me (i.e., ad hominem attacks). When you can refute my views with factual information, feel free to contact me. Otherwise, keep your venom and bitterness to yourself. You will receive no further responses from me although I am sure you will write again as you seem to have a childish need to have the last word.
At any rate, have a good day.
(PS: When you forward this email to your Anti-Sai buddies, do make sure to tell them to get my IP correct.)

A typical out of touch with reality Joe-rant -- your trademark!
||BRIAN STEEL - IN CONCLUSION
In Conclusion, Brian Steel’s emails speak for themselves. Brian Steel is a garrulous, whiny and snippy critic who engages in unremitting ad hominem attacks and then has the audacity to criticize others for engaging in the very same behavior he engages in himself. As one can see from Brian Steel’s bitter correspondence, he also has a pathological need to have the last word.
Brian Steel talked about how his “friends” informed him about the articles on my website. If these are the same “friends” who informed him the last time (not even giving him the correct link or original article), then no wonder Brian Steel is perpetually lost in “what if’s”. This doesn’t surprise me as Brian Steel is already caught up in “what if’s” regarding Sathya Sai Baba’s discourses. And as if this isn’t enough, Brian Steel likes to speak “Spanglish” and really needs to get a spell-check program while he is busy finding “tweaks” on the internet.
I also contacted O’Leary about the comment that Brian Steel attributed to him and O’Learly denied he made it! More Lies from Anti-Sais.
