Oh dear DawnP. I feel so sorry for you. You have Leslie and me confused, I suppose. I am assuming you were just referring to me (saying that I am working at a law firm)??? No. Now, you must go back and re-read my statement. I said, and please do not make me repeat myself again--I have a COUSIN who is a TOP-NOTCH attorney. So, please get your facts and information correct before ACCUSING someone of being on a blog on COMPANY TIME. Now, if you would like to know something--THAT is defamation of character my little one. Falsely accusing someone of doing something and defaming one's character. And, gee whiz--I did not even have to look that up in a dictionary. Aren't you so proud? LOLSFH.

Oh Ryan, I see. So it's perfectly accpetable to refer to an adult being raped rather than a child. EITHER WAY it is WRONG! You have lost your mind. I'm willing to be anything you are on the watchdog list.

DawnP (AKA possibly Ryan)--I DO know the difference between a threat AND defamation of character. Unfortunately, you wouldn't know that since you are apparently "new" here. Ryan did BOTH. He "threatened" my daughter (and btw--Ryan--I never said whether my daughter was young or a child; either way rape is rape), by her/his/??? nasty comment about, "AFTER my daughter IS raped. . . ." Yes, DawnP, THAT is a threat. As for the "defamation of character," she/he/??? falsely accused me of taking paxil and xanax--two medications that I have NEVER taken (nor do I need to take them--thank you). And, that, my dear, IS "defamation of character." So, why don't you and Ryan get together to discuss these two issues? If you are one and the same, then speak to yourself. If you are of a split-personality, then speak to one another. Either way, talk it out and you will see that Ryan is guilty of both a threat AND defamation of character. Okay--I'm done here. I do not care to talk to, well. . . I will not say. At least, in here. But, Courtney and Leslie would agree with me, I'm sure. LOL.
