Today Stacy Harp called me "nasty, hateful and very ignorant and foolish Kevin Kaatz." Why? Because she claims I sent her an ‘absolutely nasty’ email. I was pretty surprised to see this, since it is extremely rare that I send out a ‘nasty email’ (I can’t remember the last time I did that!). But Stacy claims on her website that I sent her one. Now it is true that I sent her an email the other day. Here it is. You can decide whether it is ‘absolutely nasty’ or not:
I do not understand what your point is in making public an illegal recording of XXX. It is clearly illegal–not only did you tape it, but you taped him after he thought he had hung up. You then have the gall to make the illegal tape public. What are you trying to do with this? You must know it is illegal. What is going to happen to you and your business when Joe sues you for illegally taping him and then making it public? You better think about what you have done. My advice to you is to take it down and apologize to XXX for not only illegally taping him, but for making this public. Clearly you are trying to be vindictive for the recording from a couple of years ago (which was legal and was agreed to by both parties to make it public).
By the way, I DO NOT give you permission to use any or all of this email on your blog. Nor do I give you permission to publish my email. I have received enough emails from the anti-gay crowd. I don’t feel like getting any more.
My reply to Stacy? I won’t make this long. It is illegal to make a recorded phone conversation public without consent of both parties (especially when part of the recording took place after one party thought they had hung up). The rest of my response will be pictorial. I hope these pictures make you feel better. You think you are being persecuted, but in fact I was just trying to help you do the right thing…
(By the way, these are pictures that I took)
