An Open Letter to Walter Mulder

I really don’t like doing this any more than I did the first time around with this subject, but Mr. Mulder is talking and threatening so I feel I must. I am posting it here, because I think this is the appropriate venue to keep the discussion public.

First things first: Walter paid me shortly after he discovered the original post. Not with an apology or any explanation for his tardiness, but with threats and bluster and such. So:

Dear Walter

Thank you for your payment of money owed for 6 months. Better late than never.

Interesting letter that you sent me demanding that I take the original post down. You claim libel and slander, but are pretty non specific on how. Matter of fact you and I both know that I can prove every word I wrote. Slander and Libel require lies and innuendo, not the truth. Making you appear in a bad light is not slanderous, you did that to yourself.

Your responses seem to be based around three basic charges (none of them address the original problem: namely that you did not pay promptly.) I will respond to each.

<Quote from a comment on my blog by Walter Mulder> “ The commission page also specifically says: “Be sure to enter your PayPal address on your Profile page.”

Golly Walter, you paid me on December 30, 2013. Was my PayPal Address missing then? How did it disappear in between? It’s a mystery, isn’t It?

<Quote from a comment on my blog by Walter Mulder> “Interesting I checked my support tickets non from mr. Wacker.
I checked my Paypal disputes: don’t have any (actually never had any in all the years I do business online)”

Nope. No support tickets, your page clearly states that pay will be automatic. I did send you a skype, however. And no, I did not file a PP dispute. I decided it just wasn’t worth it. I decided NOT to subject you to that ordeal.

<Quote from a comment on my blog by Walter Mulder> “ You were the only person above the threshold so yes others did get paid in time.”

Actually, I heard from a friend that you weren’t paying and went to check it out for myself. And since I wrote this piece I have heard from another person that he hadn’t been paid. I’m guessing they were probably lying, right?

And I note that your commission page has changed dramatically since this started. Don’t worry, I have several true and fair copies of it. If you would like to restore the original I would be happy to send you one. No charge.

I hope this clears up some of the confusion. I hope it also makes one thing perfectly clear. I can prove every word I wrote. I will not take down my post simply because you demand it. Not now, not ever.
