    Stalking by any other name

    The real take away* here is:

    1) Become a cop
    2) Stalk
    ..
    ..
    3) Score!

    Fishing - No no no

    The[y] want to be able to go fishing if they have any 'suspicion' that a person is up to no good.

    They just want to go fishing. Period. ".. up to no good" is simply an excuse.

    Re: Prendators and Prey

    I cannot imagine a bunch of crooks like these guys NOT having an exit strategy in place,

    Truth be told, I've mulled over this very thought in my mind. I strongly suspect there is no exit strategy and there never was one. The hugely narcissistic egos involved would never admit to even speculating on any kind of failure to their schemes. How can you have an exit strategy if you can't conceive of even a remote possibility of anyone objecting to your superlatively superior intellect?

    I also suspect the smartest or .. most probably .. the most cunning of the bunch was Lutz. I doubt he was 'done in' by his compatriots nor do I think he's still working in cahoots with the Prenda Cohort. Rather, he's simply gathered together what he could in liquid assets including what he could get from the Prenda Cohort as the price for his silence and has exited 'stage left'. It wouldn't surprise me in the least if no one in the Prenda Cohort can even contact him anymore.

    My opinion is based on both the concept of "Never attribute to malice what can be done by stupidity" and of seeing first hand people who simply cut their losses and run at the first sign of trouble.

    What I find really funny is that the remaining Prendanistas appear to be too egotistical to cut their losses and admit defeat much less admit they're wrong.

    Re: "I say the signature is a forgery."

    I agree.

    Some disclaimers. I'm not a handwriting expert. I've never qualified as any kind of expert witness. I'm merely speculating and expressing my opinion.

    Having gotten the disclaimers out of the way, I would like to share a few observations.

    As an (ex)artist, I see signatures as 'works of art'. From my perspective, the 'z' in both signatures could not possibly be by the same artist. On the other hand, the vertical sw/loops in the purported Nov BS5 Lutz signature match very closely in style and feel with Steele's on signature on the same document. Funny that.

    I spent two years in college pursuing a fine arts degree. As part of that, I took 4 semesters of drawing. In addition to at least one major drawing every week, we were required to do 50 rough sketches each and every week. Am I being pointless here?

    Not really. It meant that every week, we spent every Fri afternoon doing group critiques of each other's work. It didn't take very long be able to identify anyone's work the first time you saw it in class. This was one course of study where you couldn't pay anyone to do your homework for you.

    Signatures are very personal pieces of individual art. It takes real talent and skill to (at first glance) successfully forge someone's signature.

    I can't imagine any ven diagram where the set including 'talent' and 'skill' intersect with the set 'Prenda Team'.
