This is a blog about pool, not drama, but I feel as if I once again have to address this issue with Timothy J. White publicly.

In 2005, I stood up to Tim in reference to a situation that dealt with Landon Shuffett. Many people now about that, so I won't bore you with the particulars. Everybody in the world saw where Tim was wrong in that situation, except Tim.

In response to that, Tim posted lies about me on the internet saying that I was arrested and charged with possessing child pornography. He created accounts and posted many lies on newspaper forums, gay porn sites, and youtube.

In response to that, I made a video directed at Tim, and exposing his lies and his actions to many people that were unaware of this.

In an agreement with Tim, I removed the video as long as the harassment did not continue. Since then, he has repeatedly made requests for me to remove every post and every statement I made to defend myself against his lies and slander.

I won't. I received this message twice - once on Saturday, and once this morning. In this message, Tim asks me to remove a link to this video that appeared in this blog. Here is the message - unedited - along with my response - which WILL REMAIN PUBLIC for everyone to see.

I have nothing to hide in this situation, and I have NOTHING to apologize for. I won't be manipulated in to feeling as if I am obligated to do anything in this situation for Tim White. The only direction I will move on from this moment on is to start the legal process to sue him for libel and slander.

Tim, if you read this, I'm all outta "back-off" on that. I will publicly post any and all communications you send to me right here in this blog. If you want to retaliate against me by posting more BS, be my guest. I am prepared to put an end to all of that once and for all, and your actions could be very expensive and ultimately time consuming.

Anyway, here is the message, along with my response.

Hey David,

I ran a search to see how the status was. All looks pretty good. As I can see the posts were removed.

However I did find this. Please take care of it. The video and comment is still active here.

Thanks, hope all is well with you!

MY RESPONSE

Tim
I will remove the video, but I will not remove the comments.

There is still a lot of confusion that was caused by your actions. "Saying that "it all looks good" is a matter of perspective. I retain the right to clarify the lies you posted about me on the internet. If you have a problem with that, then clean it up better than you have. If you want to retaliate with more nonsense, then I will proceed with suing you for slander. That option doesn't look good for you, and I would hope that you are smart enough to avoid having somebody else decide who is the victim and who is the predator in this situation.

I would advise you to accept the fact that you caused extensive damage. so much damage that it will be impossible to ever completely clear it all up without a public apology - something you have never offered to me, or to anybody else that you slandered. That would be the right thing to do, the thing that a man would do.

Keep sending your e-mails asking me to do this and that, but you are wasting your time. I did nothing but defend myself against your lies and slander against me, and against others. I reserve the right to dispute the lies that STILL exist on many websites. If you have a problem with that, then you should have conducted yourself as a mature adult and never wrote things about other people.Think about that real hard and when you're finished, go justify your actions with someone who cares. I don't. I did nothing wrong and I won't have you manipulate this to infer that I have.

If you would like, I could post every communication I have ever had with you in my blog and expose you for what you are - which is a pain in the ass. I still have the e-mail you sent to me where you admitted to starting the child pornography rumors. If you keep pressing it, that will be my next video project. Take that as notice that I will not go back and edit anything that I have written in response to your lies and slander.

Just disappear, lose my e-mail, and go on with your life. It's that simple. You go your way, and I'll go mine. I won't bother you, and if you're smart (and sincere) you won't bother me. Call my bluff and I will legally pursue this to a level that I know that you cannot handle.

The choice is yours.

To ******* and *******, I am sending you a copy of this to let you know that there are still several of Tim's postings littered across the internet on newspaper forums and gay porn sites. He created accounts and used my name to post lies and to attack my character. This has caused extensive damage and confusion for me personally and professionally, and I reserve the right to defend my name and my character despite any agreements he has made with others. I have been very patient and understanding throughout this process, but I remain ready to pull the trigger on this legally. I believe that I am well within reason to remain firm in my stance on this issue.

This is in response to the harassment I have received from Timothy White, AKA the Australian Oyster. If you find any other blogs on Blogger with my name on them - it is probably Tim White. This is the ONLY blog that I have - the only blog I use - the only blog that should have my name on it.
