‘Violated Online’: The Vicious Arts of Internet Character Assassination

Posted on | August 18, 2011 | 6 Comments

Having previously smeared “Advice Goddess” Amy Alkon, Carl Salonen has now turned his slander machine against Professor Donald Douglas:

The allegations are that I’m (1) a child pornographer who (2) requires his students to read his postings. These are breathtaking lies. Carl Salonen submitted not a shred of evidence in support. This is pure, demented libel. But that’s typical for progressives.

Hate and Lies: It’s who the Left is and what the Left does.

Such disgusting character assassination is the subject of a new book by Steven Wyler, Violated Online: How Online Slander Can Destroy Your Life & What You Must Do to Protect Yourself:

Millions of people are attacked, exposed and violated on the Internet. A lawsuit filed against Steven Wyer’s business destroyed his company and his credibility. His reputation was ruined because of the Internet. He learned that innocent until proven guilty is a myth, especially in the digital world. The online postings hurt his family, his income and his future. Since this battle, he has talked to hundreds of people with similar stories. Their narratives would sound like fiction were it not for the fact that he has helped many of them reclaim their lives through his company, Reputation Advocate.
The American government has passed laws that leave its citizens open to be maligned with impunity by accusers-both real and fictitious. While most people use the internet, they do not know how to protect themselves against slander. Tragically, there is no one to protect us. We have to do it ourselves.
Violated Online will help any person understand the defense strategies needed to survive online exposure and how to take action now.

    This is the reason I only use my high school nickname online and refuse to give info like address, DOB etc. or even my picture (That’s Pete, my right wing attack dog).

    Donald is a great guy. How awful that this is happening to him, but that’s what the prog bastards do, hate the good and do whatever they can to destroy goodness by any means necessary.

    We should bring back (and legalize) dueling.

    Just remember, when dealing with these kinds of people, suing them is an excellent idea because of the wealth of information discovery can turn up: real names, addresses, family members, etc.

    I ignore the turds, and hope that the toilet gets flushed soon. I use my real name when I attempt to blog. …. I am also with Adobe_Walls

    Not being a violent type of person myself, I would never purposely set out to murder a progressive of Carl Salonen’s stripe. I can say in all seriousness though that if I ever found out, accidentally, that someone else had, or was planning to-my lips are sealed.
