Radio Free Cape Coral As a result of my being sued by Russ Whitney for libel, I have investigated him thoroughly to prepare my defense. I found far more negative information about him than I expected. A number of former employees have told me that many current Whitney employees in Cape Coral were reading my information about their boss on my Web site. Access blocked Not any more"”or at least that' a report I received. A former employee who maintains contact with current employees said Whitney has done something to his company computers so that they can no longer connect to my Web site. A number of questions immediately come to mind: "¢ Why would any Whitney employee want to go to my Web site to begin with? "¢ If my negative information about Whitney is as false as Whitney' lawyers claim in their legal papers, why would any Whitney employee believe it? After all, they know how wonderful Russ is from their almost daily contact with him. "¢ Why not just tell the employees not to go to my site? Can"t they be trusted to comply with that instruction? "¢ Generally, computer geeks can see what Web sites you have been visiting by examining your hard drive. Have such persons been examining the computers of Whitney employees to see if they have been visiting my Web site? If so, what happened to any who were found to have done so? Best guess: a Whitneyite taps them on the shoulder and says, "Your services are no longer needed." Behind the Russ Curtain I hate to see anyone deprived of the benefit of my Web site. If it' true, sounds like I might need to set up some sort of Radio Free Cape

Coral"”maybe a radio transmitter offshore outside the territorial limits of the U.S. broadcasting news from my Web site to those behind the Russ Curtain. Or maybe I could drop printed leaflets containing portions of my Web site behind Russ' lines by parachute. I graduated from U.S. Army Ranger School at Eglin Air Force Base in in Florida in 1968. Maybe I could borrow some aircraft from them"¦ Forbidden fruit Actually, there is no need for Radio Free Cape Coral. Unlike North Korea, Communist China, asd Cuba"”the only other places I know of where Internet access by adults is restricted"”the citizens of Cape Coral, including Whitney' employees, have home computers that let them surf the entire World Wide Web"”not just the Approved By Russ Web. His blocking access to my Web site, if true, has probably only heightened the interest of his employees in seeing it by giving it forbidden fruit appeal. Contrary report On 3/5/03, I got another email from another ex-Whitneyite saying they could still access the site at Whitney' offices. I would ask Whitney, but I sent them much of what is on this Web site in advance to check for accuracy and they just snarled that they were not going to "do my homework for me." So I would appreciate more reports on this access issue to try to get to the truth. I got another email saying that some computers had their access blocked, but higher-level employees did not. In July of 2003, Whitney said that he had not blocked access to my site. John T. Reed on real-estate-investment information Copyright 2003 by John T. Reed Last update 7/10/03 John T. Reed, a.k.a.
