Review updated:

I don’t know how it has happened, but the website www.plainsite.org has posted wrong information about me. Their actions influenced on my life and some of the companies started to harass me and send a lot of letters about the debts. Everything was untrue and because of these false details, I have problems with the bank. Guys, be very careful and if you notice that this company has done something similar to you, please find me and we need to solve the situation.

    ‘Original’ Facebook: Zuckerberg’s site to blame for ‘countless deaths’
    Eloti TV Eloti TV
    8 months ago

    The founder of the ‘original’ Facebook has claimed Mark Zuckerberg’s social network has failed to protect its users and is to blame for ‘countless deaths.’

    Aaron Greenspan created the ‘Universal Face Book’ at Harvard University four months before Mr Zuckerberg registered Facebook.com and launched his website using aspects of Mr Greenspan’s version.

    He later won a payout – an undisclosed sum – from Facebook after arguing that he came up with the idea first.

    But now, he has reignited his feud with the Silicon Valley billionaire by claiming Mr Zuckerberg compromised safeguards and security for the sake of growth.

    Mr Greenspan told the Daily Telegraph that Mr Zuckerberg, Facebook’s chief executive, ignored his warnings – instead making the network as addictive as tobacco and costing lives.

    Aaron Greenspan (right), the founder of the ‘original’ Facebook, has claimed Mark Zuckerberg’s (pictured) social network has failed to protect its users and is to blame for ‘countless deaths’

    Check this out Collingwood's banner shreds as the team runs on to the MCG in front of nearly 100, 000 fans
    ‘Facebook’s addictive qualities may not kill anyone directly as cigarettes do every day but it is now established that the site has led to countless deaths, ’ he told the newspaper.

    He cited the leaked memo written by Facebook’s vice president Andrew Bosworth, who said the site’s determination to connect people might cause deaths by exposing them to bullies or if a terrorist co-ordinated an attack using Facebook.

    Mr Greenspan added: ‘Mark and I fundamentally disagreed over the importance of quality versus quantity.

    ‘Mark floored the accelerator for 15 years straight to achieve maximum quantity and he succeeded at that.’

    Had he remained involved, Mr Greenspan said he would have stressed the importance of quality – meaning a smaller network than Facebook’s reported 2.2 billion active monthly users.

    In his confidential settlement with Mr Greenspan, Facebook commended his ‘hard work and innovation’ in developing the Universal Face Book, according to the Telegraph.

    But it was noted that Facebook included additional elements such as member profiles.

    A spokesman for Facebook said it wasn’t designed to be addictive and was working with experts to better understand excessive use, the Telegraph reports.

    The social network is now looking at cooler growth following a years-long breakneck pace.

    Last month, shares in Facebook plummeted dramatically, wiping out some $100 billion, after the firm missed quarterly revenue forecasts and warned growth would be far weaker than previously estimated.

    It comes after Mr Zuckerberg was hauled before Congress in April to explain how data belonging to 87 million users was improperly shared with a political consultancy, Cambridge Analytica, and why it ran ads and posts placed by Russian operatives in what US authorities believe was an attempt to influence the 2016 presidential election.

    It comes after Facebook admitted that up to 87 million users may have had their data hijacked by Cambridge Analytica. Pictured, Mark Zuckerberg in May

    Check this out Brett Kavanaugh 'fell into tens of thousands of dollars worth of debt buying baseball tickets'
    Facebook admitted that up to 87 million users may have had their data hijacked by Cambridge Analytica, which was working for Donald Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign.

    Facebook has modified app data sharing policies since the Cambridge Analytica scandal.

    And last month, Britain’s data regulator said it will fine Facebook £500, 000 ($644, 000) for failing to protect user data, as part of its investigation into whether personal information was misused ahead of the Brexit referendum.

    The Information Commissioner’s Office began investigating the social media giant earlier this year due to the Cambridge Analytica data mishandling.

    Cambridge Analytica has denied accusations and has filed for bankruptcy in the US and Britain.

    Silicon Valley-based Facebook has acknowledged it faces multiple inquiries from regulators about the Cambridge Analytica user data scandal.

    Mr Zuckerberg apologized to the European Parliament in May and said the social media giant is taking steps to prevent such a breach from happening again.

    @testrun Aaron Greenspan sues Silicon Valley for transmitting money
    A lot of companies take money from people and allow them to spend it in “credits”. According to a law passed in California, any business that operates in this way must register with the state as a money transmitter. Business Insider has referred to the law, known as the Money Transmission Act (MTA) as an “Innovation Killing Law” for California-based startups. That’s because, among other rules, it requires a large financial commitment in order to be in business: a net worth of $500, 000.

    facecash

    Greenspan, an internet entrepreneur and owner of Think Computer, experienced an example of this innovation killing when California authorities couldn’t even give him the guidance to operate his FaceCash mobile payments business legally. For this reason, he decided to sue Facebook for its Credits platform, Dwolla for its payments system, Stanford for its student ID payment system, both CoinLab and CoinBase for Bitcoin exchanges, among others since they aren’t registered. Ridiculous law? You decide. There’s a plan to reform it, but progress is moving slow.

    @testrun Sociopath sued Columbia Pictures for being left out of the award-winning film about Facebook's origins. This sicopath has no capability to feel guilty when they hurt your feelings and harasses anyone he can.

    FEBRUARY 01, 2012
    9:58am PT by Eriq Gardner
    Columbia Pictures Fights Man Claiming He Was Omitted From 'The Social Network'

    Columbia Tristar

    Today is the highly-anticipated day when Facebook files for its initial public stock offering. The documents will reveal key details about the popular social networking website, including who owns stock in the company already, how much revenue Facebook generates, and what is the company's true market value.

    Watching on the sidelines will be various individuals who believe they should have participated more in the financial success of the company, including the now-famous Winklevoss twins, who according to one report, could own stock as part of their settlement that is worth as much as $450 million.

    Anybody who has seen The Social Network knows that story, but how about the tale of Aaron Greenspan?

    PHOTOS: 18 of Hollywood's Outrageous Entertainment Lawsuits

    Who's he? Once profiled in The New York Times as a former Harvard student who had his own claim as being the true genius behind Facebook, Greenspan is now involved in a dispute with Columbia Pictures that alleges he was defamed by being left out of the award-winning film about Facebook's origins.

    Greenspan says he created the original college social networking website, and before Zuckerberg or the Winklevii even got started, described his system in an e-mail to fellow Harvard classmates as "the Face Book." In 2007, he showed off old e-mails to the NYT to prove his claims. He wrote about his experience and the whole early Facebook saga in an unpublished autobiography entitled "Authoritas: One Student's Harvard Admissions."

    Now, in a Massachussets federal court, Greenspan is fighting Columbia, Random House and author Ben Mezrich on a host of allegations, but perhaps the most unusual and audacious one is a claim that the film studio committed what the plaintiff is calling "defamation by omission."

    Defamation, of course, is the tort that addresses a person's injured reputation upon someone else's harmful statements. Can one be defamed by things that are not said? Maybe. There have been a handful of cases that have suggested that omitting facts in published work can be misleading and draw readers/viewers into harmful inferences (see this or see this) .

    But Greenspan's claim goes one step further.

    Earlier this month, Columbia filed a motion to dismiss Greenspan's lawsuit. The studio responded to the omission claim this way:

    "Nothing about the defamation by omission line of cases suggests that the allegedly defamatory statements need not be of and concerning the plaintiff. Here the Complaint alleges defamation against Columbia on the ground that plaintiff is not a character in Columbia's film at all. Because The Social Network is not 'of and concerning' Greenspan, the Complaint fails to state a cause of action against Columbia for defamation."
    There's more to this story.

    Greenspan is also claiming that the movie infringed the copyright on his autobiography. He says that he sent his manuscript to Random House, which rejected it, before the publishing company signed a book deal with Mezrich for The Accidental Billionaires. That's the same book that was adapted by Aaron Sorkin into his Oscar-winning screenplay for The Social Network.

    The copyright infringement allegation on a movie that tells the story of an alleged copyright infringement is bringing a whole new level of meta to the legal system. For instance, here's Columbia's mind-bending defense of a now-famous scene where Harvard president Lawrence Summers meets Tyler and Cameron Winklevoss:

    "The allegation that a scene in Columbia's film is 'based on' a scene in Mezrich's book, which in turn bears similarities to descriptions in Greenspan's book, is not the same as an allegation that Columbia's film is substantially similar to Greenspan's book."
    One final point on all of this.

    Copyright infringement claims against studios and publishers are flourishing, and now command a great deal of press attention, but often the financial factors seem to overshadow everything else. By connecting defamation and copyright, Greenspan perhaps shows how pride plays a large motivating factor in bringing these kinds of lawsuits. It certainly would explain why the Winklevoss twins, who are already rich and have spent years in court without too much success, are still pursuing Mark Zuckerberg. The U.S. Copyright Office is currently considering the establishment of a small claims court. Might the answer for such a court be allowing plaintiffs to pursue credit instead of rich financial rewards?

    @[email protected] @freelawproject sucks I wanted Plainsite to remove a negative link that showed up in Google search engines. Plainsite charged me over $4000 and never done anything they promised and after 2 months they called again and said that they need more time and another $4000 and I paid again hoping they will do what they promised. They are no longer returning my phone calls and will not return my money. I have been scammed. Do not trust plainsite. They will just try to rip you off and steal your money. My personal feelings is that plainsite is managed by a single person and not a huge corporation as it fakes.

    AaronGreenspan
    Aaron Greenspan has sued Facebook, along with a myriad of other tech companies, according to a lawsuit filed on Monday, May 6. If you just experienced a case of deja vu, it’s likely because you’ve heard this tune before – this isn’t the first time Greenspan has sued Facebook (or other companies), and we’ll be surprised if it ends up being the last. The lawsuit was initiated by Greenspan’s company Think Computer.

    Greenspan has long claimed that Zuckerberg stole many of his ideas during their days at Harvard, using them to create what is now Facebook. He later went after the Facebook trademark, eventually leading to a settlement of which its terms are not known. And this, not surprisingly, is just a small list of the man’s lawsuits, which have even included the state of California. Despite the years of badgering, Greenspan still isn’t finished, and has once again targeted the social network in addition to companies referred to as Money Services Businesses.

    Among these other companies are Airbnb, Y Combinator, Dwolla, Square, Coinbase, Andreessen Horowitz, A-Grade, Sequoia Capital, DST Global, and more. In addition, several individuals were also named in the suit, including Reddit’s CEO Yishan Wong and PayPal’s Max Levchin. In essence, just about every company you can think of dealing in categories akin to digital payments located in Silicon Valley.

    The lawsuit alleges that the aforementioned companies and individuals have violated California’s Bank Secrecy and Money Transmission acts, as well as “various other statutes.” It goes on to accuse in long verbose mode the companies of knowingly working under the radar instead of complying with the acts, and says that their investors are guilty by association. Greenspan declined commenting on the matter.

Aaron Greenspan has caused so much pain for myself and my family. Even Neil Greenspan called me and my relatives with harrassment and threats. I understand completely how bad you feel. You were very cruelly violated! I bet you feel your very soul has been ripped to shreds don't you? You're angry and you have every right to be. The drama and chaos Aaron wreaked has broken you!!!
    The good news is that you can and will recover from this. We need to share stories of our own experiences with Greenspan Sociopaths.

    Payroll site closes on security worries
    PayMaxx shutters part of its site after a security researcher claims it exposed data on more than 25, 000 people.

    Robert Lemos
    By Robert Lemos | February 23, 2005 -- 23:54 GMT (15:54 PST) | Topic: Security

    Online payroll service provider PayMaxx shuttered its automated W-2 site on Wednesday after a researcher claimed that two security holes had exposed data on more than 25, 000 people.
    A description of the problem posted on Think Computer's Web site by Aaron Greenspan, president of the software start-up, said the security issues could allow anyone to view the W-2 forms generated for employees of PayMaxx's clients for the last five years.

    PayMaxx did not acknowledge or deny the problems, saying that a third-party security company was investigating the allegations.

    "No system in the world is 100 percent secure from a sophisticated and determined hacker, " the Tennessee-based payroll company said in a statement sent to CNET News.com. "PayMaxx has made and continues to make every effort to secure its system against any breach."

    The incident comes a week after background-check provider ChoicePoint acknowledged that data thieves had created dozens of fake companies to acquire more than 145, 000 records touching on the personal lives of U.S. citizens. Federal legislators are considering strong protections on identity data following the ChoicePoint leak, and a class action lawsuit has been filed in California.

    Greenspan, a former PayMaxx customer, said he discovered the alleged problems in the company's system more than two weeks ago, after he received notification from the company that his W-2 tax form was available online for download and printing. The link to access the W-2 included an ID number, and he wondered whether the company had protected against an obvious security problem: adding one to the ID number to get the next form.

    Instead of being denied access, Greenspan found that another person's W-2 was downloaded and readable. Sequential, rather than randomized, ID numbers made it easy to call up numerous customers' data.

    The hole could have allowed employees at PayMaxx's clients to access more than 25, 000 W-2 forms for last year and the W-2 forms for years back to 2000, he said.

    He said his investigation revealed that PayMaxx's database contained a record for testing purposes that contained a Social Security number of [protected] and a password of all zeros. That could allow anyone to log into the site and then use the lack of authentication to sequentially download all the W-2 forms, Greenspan said.

    "Anyone could have been exploiting these security issues for years, and no one would have known about it, " he said.

    PayMaxx confirmed that the test account did exist as described in Greenspan's paper, but took issue with other allegations. The company stated that from a review of Greenspan's paper, it had found several of his claims to be inaccurate, but did not specify which claims. While PayMaxx did not confirm the problem, the company did qualify the extent of the damage.

    "Our initial analysis indicates that if Mr. Greenspan was able to improperly access any W-2 forms, a limited number of forms were accessed, " the company said in the statement.

    That does not contradict Greenspan's claims, since the researcher said that he had only accessed enough of the site to confirm the issue and gauge the extent of the problem.

    PayMaxx charged that Greenspan had "attempted to hack" into its Web site. It said he had held back details of the alleged flaws and had requested that PayMaxx hire his company.

    "Due to the lack of specificity provided by Mr. Greenspan in his obvious sales pitch, PayMaxx did not view his communications as credible, " the company said. "Consequently, we declined his offer to hire his services."

    Greenspan acknowledged that he had given PayMaxx few details, but took issue with their lack of response to his security concerns.

    "I did tell them that there was a problem, and gave them several options to deal with it, and instead they chose to do nothing, " Greenspan said. "It is not my job to go around and fix problems for free."

    PayMaxx declined to comment on whether it had notified any of its customers about the report of a problem. Under California's Security Breach Information Act (S.B. 1386), companies that may have leaked personal or financial data must advise their customers as soon as possible.

    @Sally Sweetness A class action lawsuit is in the works against Aaron, Neil and Judith Greenspan and Michael Keene who is running Keene Promotions. The asset investigations have been done and Aaron Greenspan apparently is now using PO Boxes as his addresses on his credit reports. There is some Trust Fund documents that are still being investigated and other assets. We plan on bankrupting the Greenspan family so they have to go live in the streets where they have put hundreds of Americans with their plainsite.org and Think Computer Foundation. Contact Jen at [protected]@protonmail.com . Currently there are over 35 victims of Aaron Greenspan who have joined in this class action lawsuit and we will be filing the lawsuit against these criminals in a California Court that will be displayed soon. Contact [protected]@protonmail.com to sign up quickly if you too have been a victims of these social menaces.

    @Seft Guyana Aaron Greenspan is running a fraudulent 501(c)(3) where he is asking the public for money for plainsite.org but it’s not a 501(c)(3).
    Aaron Greenspan has this email finance at thinkcomputer.org linked illegally to a PayPal account where he lies to the public stating that plainsite.org is a non-profit but it’s actually an ongoing criminal enterprise where Aaron Greenspan extorts $4, 500 to remove each URL but when he is paid directly he refuses to remove any URL because he’s afraid that it might be a police sting to through his Autistic Crazy Ass in prison where he truly belongs. Better yet Aaron Greenspan belong. Permanently locked up in a Psychiatric Hospital where has already been admitted in several occasions and was not let back out until the Psychiatrists allowed him back out. His father Neil Greenspan knows how to whine, complain and pester people to try and get his way. He pestered the Psychiatrists to let Aaron Greenspan back out to mess with people’s livelihoods again.

    PayPal needs to shut his account down where he uses the email finance at thinkcomputer.org
    finance at thinkcomputer dot org
    Plainsite.org is not a non-profit as he falsely claims that it is to scam the IRS and the State of Ohio on his Taxes. Aaron Greenspan is Criminal.

When confronted with this he promptly added "all proceeds go to charity" on plainsite.org site in order to cover his track. After calling Autism Society of Greater Cleveland they claim they have never received checks or money orders from this @plainsite.org Think computer foundation or Aaron Greenspan. He is currently under investigations with harassment and libel and will soon face charges plus a civil suit including himself and Neil Greenspan and Judith keene Greenspan .

    INTERVIEW: AARON GREENSPAN, PRESIDENT, CEO, & FOUNDER OF THINK COMPUTER CORPORATION, OCTOBER 2002
    Entrepreneur Interviews |

    The reading level for this article is Novice

    What gave you the idea to begin Think Computer?

    I’ve always enjoyed playing with electronics, and computers in particular. When I was 11, I began helping friends and family with computer problems on a regular basis. When I was about 14, I wanted to start doing work for businesses, but to protect myself and my family, I
    decided the best thing to do would be to incorporate. Consequently, I decided to start Think Computer at least in part as a defensive measure.

    What services does Think Computer provide?

    Think Computer started out with computer repair as its primary service. Now, we’ve shifted more to software, though we still offer consulting, web site hosting, graphic and web site deisgn, and credit card processing as services.

    How do you balance managing a company and attending Harvard full-time?

    Sometimes I wonder what the answer to this question is myself.

    Where are the headquarters of the company?

    The company is officially headquartered in Cleveland, OH.

    What spurred you to form Think Computer Foundation?

    I was invited to speak at a panel at the Kennedy Space Center in Florida, and during one panel discussion, another panelist from Jamaica mentioned how much his country could benefit from help with technology. In reply, I suggested that there were plenty of businesses in the United States with old but functioning computers that they would be willing to
    donate, if only they knew how. I didn’t want to be perceived as someone who just talked about it, though, so when I arrived back home, I began the process of incorporating Think Computer Foundation as a 501(c)3 non-profit organization.

    Tell me about the philanthropic activities of your foundation.

    The Foundation has donated computers to educational instituions in Jamaica and Brazil, though it has been a real challenge getting them there.

    Did you have any difficulties in forming a 501 (c) non-profit organization at 17?

    Yes; the IRS was not particularly helpful, as usual.

    Do you feel that attending Harvard and not going directly into the world of business was the best decision?

    Yes, I’ve always believed that getting a college education is just as important as gaining real-world experience–but you can only go to college once.

    How important are the proper advisors in ensuring a young entrepreneur’s success?

    Advisors make the otherwise difficult process of entrepreneurship much more bearable. It’s great to be able to discuss your thoughts with someone who actually supports you. While it’s possible to get by without any outside advice, it’s much more enjoyable if you have someone to turn to.

    Have you had any advisors guide you along the way?

    Yes, I have had a couple of friends serve as advisors over the years.

    What books and resources would you recommend for young entrepreneurs?

    “StartUp: A Silicon Valley Adventure, ” by Jerry Kaplan. It’s an excellent and easy read.

    How important do you consider networking and building contacts to be for an entrepreneur’s success?

    Networking is crucial, but I’ve always believed that the actual idea and the manner in which it is executed are the most important aspects of any venture.

    What do you see in your future?

    Another question that I wish I could answer. Hopefully, I’ll continue running Think Computer once I’m out of college.

    If you could pin it down to just one thing, what is the one most important thing you have learned about business?

    The person you should trust the most is yourself, and no one else.

    Any final advice for young entrepreneurs or businessmen just getting started?

    If you think you have a great idea that fills a gap, and you’re responsible enough to take action on it through all of the proper channels, go for it!

    @Jose 911 Why do I have a feeling Aaron Greenspan never reported the $170, 000 to the #IRS.

    https://www.crainscleveland.com/article/20010723/SUB/107230726/teen-ager-rethinks-focus-for-his-technology-startup

    July 23, 2001 02:30 AM
    Teen-ager rethinks focus for his technology startup
    Think Computer makes shift to software
    .At the ripe old age of 18, Aaron Greenspan already has learned the sometimes-harsh reality of running a technology business. First, Mr. Greenspan had to dismiss two employees -- teen-agers who worked as information technology consultants as they wrapped up their high school careers -- because he has changed the focus of his company, Think Computer Corp. Mr. Greenspan, who's headed to Harvard University as a freshman this fall, has reshaped the company from a computer consulting and repair firm to a software development company. 'I've always intended to do this, ' Mr. Greenspan said of the shift to software development, which won't demand as much of his time. He recently informed his 150 or so clients of the change. Mr. Greenspan has hired three employees to help develop the software, called 'SecondBase.' The software will be designed to connect distributors of promotional products, such as T-shirts, coffee mugs, pens and pencils, with their suppliers and customers. Mr. Greenspan said his mother and uncle have been involved with the promotions industry and are able to guide development of the product. For now, Think Computer is based in the Sherman Library at University School in Shaker Heights, where Mr. Greenspan, a graduate of Shaker Heights High School, taught at computer camp. Once the software is done this summer, Think Computer will become a virtual company with employees and customers connected via the Internet. 'It doesn't matter where we're at, ' Mr. Greenspan said. 'The product will still work.' Like Mr. Greenspan, Think Computer's other three employees are headed to college or already are there. They are Tim Suen, 18, who will be a freshman at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology; Whitney Lowell, 18, who will be a freshman at Davidson College outside of Charlotte, N.C.; and Scott Heller, 19, a sophomore at University of Maryland. Think Computer is about to begin testing early versions of SecondBase, Mr. Greenspan said. After calling an d e-mailing a number of potential buyers of the software, Mr. Greenspan said he has about 25 companies that have signed confidentiality agreements to test the product. Among those potential clients is American Marketing Authority Inc., an eight-employee promotional products distributor from Irvine, Calif. Brad Darr, president of American Marketing, said he has spent the past two years looking for software similar to what Mr. Greenspan's company is developing. So far, he hasn't found it. 'I certainly hope (Mr. Greenspan and his staff) pull it off, ' Mr. Darr said. 'I told him we're interested. If he can do it, he'll certainly have a buyer in me.' Mr. Greenspan said he has not yet decided how much to charge for the product, but he expects to undercut his closest competitors. He also doesn't plan to accept outside financing to develop the product and his company. 'I never had a need for venture capital, ' Mr. Greenspan said. Mr. Greenspan started Think Computer in 1998 to fix computers and to offer low-cost information technology consulting services. Since then, the company has had sales of $170, 000, he said.

    @216-932-1989 fraud Aaron Greenspan is a bully . This bully becomes a cry baby when people fight back.
    Aaron Greenspan is Professional Shammer.

    Juan: In your public testimonies, and clearly here as well, you have no qualms about naming and shaming individuals and companies. Why is that?

    Aaron: It works. If you really believe that someone or something should change, the best way to achieve that goal is to let them know. Sometimes telling a person to their face (or in writing) isn’t enough, and it requires broadcasting the message to a wider audience. Here, I can back up the claim that it’s an effective strategy with some evidence: the law in California has changed once, and it’s about to change a second time. My competitors’ business practices have changed, although not completely, and not fast enough. I think I’m generally a pretty friendly and unassuming person, but sadly, diplomacy does not effect change often enough, accurately enough, or fast enough to be a useful tool in high-stakes situations such as this.

    HEY JUAN THE REASON HE SHAMES AND LIES IS BECAUSE HE IS A DUMB AUTISTIC THAT CANT GET LAID.

    The so called founder of Instagram Facebook and whatsup app falied at an extortion attemp against google. Aaron Greenspan is a thief and acts like he is a good doer angel . Aaron Greenspan is the devil. Aaron Greenspan understands how to cheat government and courts.
    Aaron Greenspan went to the press and lied . Google "Aaron Greenspan sues Google and wins $761."
    Here is the TRUTh. At first I didnt belive all the slander and it took me a while to see aaron greenspan and Neil Greenspan and Judith keene Greenspan are running scams and pulling the wool.
    Basically, Greenspan cheated. He set up a web page with Google Adsense that contained no content other than the links. Well, there was a critical piece of content above the links: text that read “Pick a link”. So he violated two

    https://domainnamewire.com/2009/06/10/publisher-who-sued-google-adsense-loses-appeal/

    Aaron Greenspan won a small claims court case against Google earlier this year. Google had canceled his Adsense account without providing a reason. The judge ruled that it can’t cancel accounts for any reason at all, and awarded Greenspan $761. Greenspan wrote an article for Huffington Post detailing the matter, which gained national attention. Google and appealed the case, which it won.

    Although Greenspan tries to come across as the white knight in a follow up story on Huffington Post, he should be just as ashamed of his actions as Google should be for not telling him why his account was canceled in the first place.

    Basically, Greenspan cheated. He set up a web page with Google Adsense that contained no content other than the links. Well, there was a critical piece of content above the links: text that read “Pick a link”. So he violated two terms.

    Greenspan tries to get across that Google has a second program just for domains that allows ads to be shown without content and that it isn’t fair. (Note that these parked pages never say “Pick a Link”.) But at any time Greenspan could have joined that program through a Google partner (which he later did).

    To be clear, Google probably should have just told this guy why his account was canceled in the first place: cheating. I agree that Google tends to take actions that drastically affect people without fully justifying them. But the company doesn’t need to justify itself to cheaters.

    A GRUDGE 8 YEARS IN THE MAKING: The Full Story Behind The New, Leaked Zuckerberg IMs
    Alyson Shontell
    Alyson Shontell
    Business InsiderSeptember 19, 2012, 9:57 PM UTC
    Aaron Greenspan, a Harvard acquaintance of Mark Zuckerberg's, has published never-before-seen IMs allegedly written by Greenspan and Facebook's co-founder over a six-month period in 2004.

    The IMs cover a range of topics including Facebook's launch, its similarity to Greenspan's company, HouseSYSTEM, and Zuckerberg's high school friend and Quora co-founder, Adam D'Angelo .

    Greenspan says he found the IMs last week while hunting for information about Charlie Cheever, Quora's recently departed co-founder, from his junior year of college.

    "It turns out that my 'Other folder' contained some of the most important legal evidence regarding the origins of Facebook, Inc. that I had been trying to find for years, but without much success." Greenspan writes.

    Greenspan has long been at odds with Zuckerberg. When Zuckerberg tried to trademark the word "Facebook" in 2009, Greenspan opposed him. The pair reached a settlement.

    Greenspan later sued "The Social Network" movie producers, claiming he should have been included in the story of Facebook's history.

    For years, Greenspan has been trying to show how Mark Zuckerberg wronged him.

    "Mark has a pattern of pathologically lying to people, " Greenspan tells Business Insider. "It's not just me, it's not just the Winklevosses, it's not just Adam, not just Eduardo. It happened a lot and that makes me concerned for anyone who would trust their retirement savings to him. Aside from that, he admits that it's based on houseSYSTEM. It's pretty plain. And I've spent the past decade trying to convince people of that so I can get my own career started, and it's been pretty difficult."

    So what exactly did Mark Zuckerberg do to make Greenspan so spiteful?

    Honestly, it doesn't seem like much.

    In the first IM conversation from 2004, Zuckerberg allegedly approached Greenspan about Facebook pre-launch. He told Greenspan that he had created a product that was more or less a "souped up version" of a HouseSYSTEM feature, and that the two companies might be competitive.

    Zuckerberg offered to make Greenspan a Facebook partner so they wouldn't go head to head, but Greenspan turned him down:

    zberg02 : i have a question
    ThinkComp : ok
    zberg02 : are you interested in doing other things besides the housesystem venture?
    ThinkComp : in what context
    zberg02 : like would you be interested in possibly partnering up to make a site if it would not be incorporated into housesystem
    ThinkComp : for the sec? think? or separate
    zberg02 : separate i guess
    ThinkComp : depends on the site i guess
    zberg02 : well it would be on the new thing i'm working on
    zberg02 : i could let you know exactly what i was thinking about it, but i'm a little worried that you might just be inclined to want to incorporate it into housesystem
    zberg02 : which isn't something i want right off the bat, and maybe not at all
    ThinkComp : i guess i'd need to see the advantage of starting on something new
    ThinkComp : since i've already sort of got a lot going on...
    ThinkComp : it's much easier to just incorporate things where they fit from my perspective
    zberg02 : well i agree
    zberg02 : but we disagree on whether or not it would fit into housesystem
    zberg02 : well really i just want to make sure that we're not doing the same thing
    zberg02 : because then neither of us would succeed i think

    In that initial conversation, the pair seemed friendly. But then Zuckerberg named his product "thefacebook, " the same name of the HouseSYSTEM feature he had "souped up." Greenspan admits the name immediately put him on the defensive.

    That June, once thefacebook was on its way to taking off, Zuckerberg and Greenspan still seemed cordial. Zuckerberg allegedly told Greenspan he was one of "six people in the world who has decent ideas" and even insinuated a job offer at his social network. Greenspan still turned him down.

    zberg02 : hey man
    ThinkComp : hi
    zberg02 : i was just wondering where you're working after college
    ThinkComp : i'm working for myself
    zberg02 : sorry that it's kind of out of the blue
    zberg02 : awesome
    zberg02 : you pulled it off
    zberg02 : sweet
    ThinkComp : well, not really
    ThinkComp : i hope i will pull it off :-)
    ThinkComp : right now i'm too dead tired to do much of anything
    ThinkComp : heh
    zberg02 : eh no hope
    zberg02 : you'll do fine
    zberg02 : there are only like six people in the world who have decent ideas
    ThinkComp : haha
    zberg02 : and it's the job of the rest of the people to accuse us of taking their ideas haha
    zberg02 : while we just continually kick ass
    ThinkComp : :-)

    When Greenspan did finally ask Zuckerberg for a job at Facebook, he says Zuckerberg told him he "didn't have enough technical experience."

    While those just seem like regrettable, missed opportunities and petty annoyances, all of those things have been boiling up inside Greenspan for years.

    Now Greenspan is angry with everyone who doesn't view Zuckerberg as a fraud.

    He's angry at the press for spinning Zuckerberg's wheels. He's angry with investors for supporting an "everyday megalomaniac." He's mad at the SEC for letting Facebook become such a big public company. And he says Zuckerberg has "almost completely ruined his career."

    But the biggest crime Zuckerberg seems to have committed is hurting a former friend's feelings.

    All Greenspan seems to want is a little credit and an apology. But Zuckerberg's lack of remorse has made Greenspan bitter.

    "It's remarkable just how close Mark and I seemed at the beginning, even after just meeting each other, which might help explain why I felt so deeply wounded in the ensuing months and years, " Greenspan writes.

    " The icing on the cake is that for a period of years, from roughly [protected], Mark lived exactly one block away from me in College Terrace ... It wouldn't have been difficult for him to stop by and apologize for any misunderstanding . I got a grin and a wave, but an apology never came. There was no remorse. "

    This site has reported an incorrect small claims ruling on me as well. I basically won my counter suit and San Francisco Small Claims court sent out two separate rulings, obviously one was incorrect! Fast forward years later...now...Plainsite...is defaming me! I wrote a professional letter to ask Plainsite.org to remove the posting and I was pompously declined in text. Thankfully, it has not affected my self-employment of 25 years, however, it was viewed by a private University while they were investigating my daughters social media habits for acceptance! I hope someone sues them soon! I wish I had the time and the money to go after them.

    This is great, Aaron.

    Re publishing gov't search info: I wouldn't. It is creepy and bad and few be excited about it, and if you did, it would stop.

    Re FEC data, I'm cc'ing a superstar at our Center who has done amazing stuff with contribution data. It would be great if you guys could connect and see if there's a way to collaborate.

    Hello again,

    It's been a few months since I last updated East Coast people on PlainSite, so here goes for round two.

    I wanted to let you know that the efforts to put PACER data on PlainSite have been generally more successful than we anticipated. We now have DOJ, DHS, and GPO visitors daily looking at case information (which is great, but also slightly ironic in the last case), in addition to many requests by private parties and law firms. I've attached a current graph of our traffic as seen by Google. Integrating better with the Internet Archive and RECAP so that we can get more current (post-2008) cases is still on the todo list.

    A few people have called or e-mailed asking for their cases to be removed from the internet; I've done my best to explain to them how difficult that is, and in a few cases (consistent with Carl's recommendation) I've added cases to our robots.txt file so that they aren't crawled (though of course pages that link to them still are, not sure there's much we can do there). We also put up a policy for people to reference here: http://www.plainsite.org/contact/information.html

    The fact that we're seeing so much usage of case data by government agencies made me wonder if it might be useful to researchers or the public at large to publish the server logs of who in the government is actually looking for and using this data. The requests come from a wide variety of agencies, and as a government transparency site I think it would be consistent with the site's goals. But it might also anger some bureaucrats, especially because search strings are in the logs--which is why they might be interesting. (Lawyers, is there any expectation of privacy when government employees search for public information on a free site? My gut says "no, " but I want to make sure...)

    Lots of companies and PACs are now indexed on the Flashlight page at http://www.plainsite.org/flashlight, along with their cases, lawyers, and political donations. Unfortunately, IRS and FEC provide their PAC donation data in totally different formats at different intervals, so for now it's just data from the IRS (which is in terrible shape between duplicates and misspellings).

    We haven't been as successful yet in the issue-based realm where we started, which might be because the site doesn't really offer a concrete way to ensure feedback to politicians. Along with some features specifically for legal professionals, that's on the todo list, too.

    Hope all is well. Feedback is always welcome. Thanks to Eric, Ying and Sabeel for their support with coding and ideas.

    @Mahnaz Salem The best solution is to first go to your local Police Station and file a Police Report against Aaron Greenspan. Then go to your local Court and file a TRO Temporary Restraining Order against Aaron Greenspan. Then go before the Judge and explain how Aaron Greenspan is interfering with your career and reputation. The Judge will most likely give you a permanent Restraining Order. You must make a request that the Judge make an Order for Aaron Greenspan to not access any of your personal information and to simply not mess with any of your information. The Judge will approve this and then if Aaron Greenspan continues to mess with your career and reputation, you then need to go back to your local Police file a Report and then go to your loca DA and Victim Advocate at the courthouse and request that criminal charges be filed against Aaron Greenspan. This goes for everyone! If Aaron Greenspan is messing with your career, reputation and future then simply get a Restraining Order against him and inform the Judge of all the details and you will receive a Restraining Order that is tailored to what you need to have Aaron Greenspan stop with his harassment and stalking. You will only have the information removed from teh search engines if you keep on top of the Police Complaints and get your Restraining Order. Do not give up!

Neil Greenspan cries because he doesn’t like paying for all the medical expenses Simon who has Autism out of his own pocket. So, he set up Think Computer Foundation as a fraudulent 501(c)(3) and has is other son Aaron Greenspan running crazy and loose with his Autism Spectrum setting up websites like plainsite.org and many other websites that they falsely place as a 501(c)(3) but they are not. Judith Keene Greenspan is also a co-owner of this criminal enterprise and Neil Greenspan is the actual VP and Treasurer for this entire criminal enterprise.

    @Stalker AaronGreenspan Interview with Aaron Greenspan, Harvard graduate, original creator of “The Facebook, ” payments innovator, and autodidact non-lawyer. (PART THREE)

    Aaron was generous both in his time and in his responses, which led me to split the interview into three parts: In PART ONE: REGULATION AND INNOVATION IN THE UNITED STATES, Aaron talks about United States money transmitters laws and identifies, with unusual clarity and depth, what he believes is wrong with them.

    In PART TWO: BITCOIN, COMMUNISM AND THE SURVEILLANCE STATE, Aaron lays out his controversial point of view on Bitcoin.

    Read on for PART THREE: A YOUNG FINTECH ENTERPRENEUR’S DAY OF RECKONING, the final and most controversial one, in which Aaron has no qualms about naming and shaming some of the individuals that have not “treated him with respect.” Again, here is a brief intro on Aaron, for the benefit of those who haven’t read the previous posts.

    Having been a teen tech entrepreneur, during college at Harvard in 2003 Aaron created the predecessor to Facebook, Inc., which also happened to be called “The Facebook.” In 2009, he entered into a settlement agreement with Facebook, Inc. as well as his classmate Mark Zuckerberg, and then had the opportunity to figure out what he wanted to do next, so he followed a long-standing interest in payment systems and decided to try and tackle mobile payments. From 2008 through early 2011, he invested essentially every piece of time, energy and capital at his disposal into making his payments initiative, called FaceCash, widely regarded as a success—until he was told that he would be thrown in federal prison by a state bureaucrat.

    As you will soon see, to say that Aaron does not mince his words is the understatement of the century, so I am aware of the risks I am taking by presenting his strong point of view here. However, even though I do not necessarily subscribe to Aaron’s views and approaches, I decided to take the plunge and honor the spirit of this blog. I believe the current BitLicense proposal debate, and the nascent crypto-currency industry will be greatly enriched with his life experience and rigorous–and ruthless–analysis of the United States regulatory landscape.

    PART THREE: A YOUNG FINTECH ENTREPRENEUR’S DAY OF RECKONING

    “If you really believe that someone or something should change, the best way to achieve that goal is to let them know.”

    Juan: The onset of your personal quest to discover the root causes of what you felt was an unfair system was your experience of clashing with regulators, right? Please tell us more about that experience.

    Aaron: The state bureaucrat I mentioned had threatened me, Robert Venchiarutti, remains the Deputy Commissioner of Money Transmission at the California Department of Business Oversight (formerly Department of Financial Institutions) today. At the time, Mr. Venchiarutti probably didn’t know that I had been on the receiving end of such a threat before, when in late 2005 / early 2006 I diligently reported a security flaw I discovered in a federal government computer system to the federal government. The New York Times picked up the story—they were the only newspaper that would report on it in a responsible manner, only after the flaw was fixed—which made the government officials quite upset. What ensued was without a doubt the most stressful period of my entire life. Even though I had just graduated from Harvard, I knew virtually nothing about the law, and I found federal agents with guns accusing me of violating the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act (18 U.S.C. § 1030) to be intimidating. Therefore, I had good reason to take Venchiarutti’s threat extremely seriously, and I also had good reason to be suspicious of his motives, because of the background research I had done on the sponsor of California A.B. 2789, which turned into the Money Transmission Act of 2010.

    Juan: What do you think were Mr. Venchiarutti’s motives? What reasons did you have to take his “threat” seriously?

    Aaron: I don’t know Venchiarutti’s motives and I don’t think it would be wise to speculate. Perhaps one day we’ll learn. However, I believe that any time a government official threatens you, from a police officer to a federal prosecutor, you should take that threat seriously.

    Juan: In your public testimonies, and clearly here as well, you have no qualms about naming and shaming individuals and companies. Why is that?

    Aaron: It works. If you really believe that someone or something should change, the best way to achieve that goal is to let them know. Sometimes telling a person to their face (or in writing) isn’t enough, and it requires broadcasting the message to a wider audience. Here, I can back up the claim that it’s an effective strategy with some evidence: the law in California has changed once, and it’s about to change a second time. My competitors’ business practices have changed, although not completely, and not fast enough. I think I’m generally a pretty friendly and unassuming person, but sadly, diplomacy does not effect change often enough, accurately enough, or fast enough to be a useful tool in high-stakes situations such as this. I tried. No one listened. Now they are listening.

    “My taxes pay government officials to carry out an important official role, so I expect them to act accordingly and treat me with respect.”

    Juan: Didn’t you ever feel you were burning an important bridge?

    Aaron: I suppose my theory on bridge burning goes something like this: if a bridge is a rickety mess that will collapse at any moment and has a high likelihood of killing you, it’s probably better to burn that bridge and build a new one than take the risk of dying. Being nice to a shoddy bridge doesn’t make it any less shoddy. Along those lines, DBO regulators aren’t my friends. They’re government officials who are supposed to carry out an important official role. My taxes pay them to do that, so I expect them to act accordingly and treat me with respect.

    It’s also worth noting that to the extent I burned that bridge, it was a toll bridge to nowhere, in the middle of my driveway, proposed and built by private contractors. It’s a bridge to nowhere because the Money Transmission Act will soon no longer be relevant; my efforts to improve the law in California have paid some dividends, however slowly. First, there was an oversight hearing, then the law was amended by A.B. 786 (2013), an it’s about to be amended again by A.B. [protected]), which has passed the State Assembly and the Senate. A.B. 2209 will make it legal for FaceCash to operate in California again without needing a license, because retail POS transactions will finally be exempt, and because all of FaceCash’s users signed written contracts when signing up from day one regardless. The metaphorical bridge was in the middle of my driveway because I was apparently the only one required to drive on it, and it was built by private contractors because twenty of these laws are actually the work of one lobbyist, Ezra Levine, who sways state legislators across the country on behalf of the various members of the Money Services Round Table, which for those who don’t know, is a lobbying group representing the interests of the largest U.S. licensed money transmitters.

    “It’s probably better to burn a collapsing bridge and build a new one than take the risk of dying.”

    Juan: Do you regret having handled the whole affair the way you did?

    Aaron: Absolutely not. I rather think that they might regret the way they handled the whole affair. I recently learned that before my meeting with Mr. Venchiarutti, he had been sued twice before: once for legal malpractice and again for fostering a racist and “hostile work environment” at the DFI/DBO. Both lawsuits were settled, with the DFI/DBO paying out $27, 000 to one of its employees, Venchiarutti’s subordinate, in the latter case. That employee was also forbidden from ever attempting to transfer into the money transmission department again as part of the settlement—an odd condition. So it would appear that this particular California official has a track record—I just didn’t know that in 2011. Now a lot of people know, because I’ve posted it at a site I created with his name, and of course here as well. Jan Lynn Owen, DBO’s current Commissioner and a former senior lobbyist at Washington Mutual, where she helped accelerate the largest bank failure in United States history, also has her own web site along the same lines.

    Juan: Apart from your case apparently being ignored, has there been any other reaction on the part of the California money transmitter regulatory agency?

    Aaron: There hasn’t been any public reaction from the DBO, but the e-mail disclosures I mentioned before indicate that they obviously take it seriously and follow it closely. As for why Judge Howard R. Lloyd in the San Jose division of the District Court Northern District of California has been sitting on the constitutional lawsuit for almost 1, 000 days now—a District record for non-stayed motions to dismiss as far as I know—I have no idea. Most motions of that type are resolved well within a year, and most typically litigants wait three or four months. That particular case is approaching three years of just waiting on the judge, which while strange and annoying, is also significant in that it would have been extremely easy for him to dismiss right away (which is what happens to most cases that are filed).

    “I still think virtual currency startups should pay higher risk premiums relative to others, but if they think that preserving the status quo is their ticket to success, they’re wrong.”

    Juan: What would you say to those who might think that calling for federal regulation is opening the door to more unwieldy, expensive Big Government-type regulations?

    Aaron: Sounds like a lot of scary buzzwords to me. Federal notice and comment periods are generally much more transparent and forgiving than state comment periods, if they even exist. For example, California has had a number of “public” hearings on money transmission issues—including one blocks from my house—with only 72 hours notice given to those invited to the hearing. I had no idea that Bitcoin was being discussed at Mountain View City Hall in November, 2013, when I literally can walk to Mountain View City Hall because it’s less than a mile away and I’ve been one of the most involved citizens in the country on these issues. That kind of thing doesn’t happen with federal regulations. They’re obviously not all anywhere close to perfect, but at least there is a process that people in Washington take seriously, more transparency, and a lower likelihood of petty corruption.

    As far as “unwieldy” and “expensive, ” I don’t see how it could be any more unwieldy and expensive than what we have now for payments startups. I still think virtual currency startups should pay higher risk premiums relative to others, but if they think that preserving the status quo is their ticket to success, they’re wrong. I don’t know when I will win this battle, but eventually, I will win. Federal regulation of money transmission is inevitable.

    Everybody! We have to work together to shut plainsite.org and the fraudulent 501c Think Computer down once and for all.
    How are we going to do it?
    First by filing massive amounts of complaints with the FBI’s IC3, FCC and FTC.
    Second by filing massive amounts of complaints with employer of Aaron Greenspan’s father Neil S Greenspan and with the local authorities in Ohio and California including the Attorney General’s Offices.
    Third by posting the photos of Aaron Greenspan on the web. If he Hacks in to the websites which by the way he has been doing to remove photos then we will resort to creating our own websites that can easily be made online.
    People need to realize that Aaron Greenspan is also associated with another vicious website called leagle.com
    and that this Nut is extremely vindictive. What that means is that he will resort to altering and uploading the legal information on his vicious website plainsite.org and will intentionally defame and shame all non-jews. We have observed that Aaron Greenspan does not do this to other Jews only to non-Jews. If he finds out that he posted something that defames a Jew he immediately removes the information from the web. This guy is extremely racist and hater people and most of all hates himself. That’s understandable.

    We should have Aaron Greenspan locked up in a Psychiatric Hospital for observation for an undetermined period of time. He should not be allowed any access to computers, smart devices and most definitely no access to anyone’s information Ashe enjoys destroying people’s livelihoods and families.

    We have freedoms in the US that is true but Aaron Greenspan has intentionally abused these freedoms and the rights of other people.

    Aaron Greenspan and his parents Neil Greenspan and Judith Greenspan are all in on this 501c fraud from day one. See the public documents from Ohio. Then these three criminals transferred this fraudulent 501 to Delaware, so that when they did the transfer to Delaware they would not have to make their monetized websites like plainsite.org and others public. They used a third party to set up this fraud in Delaware so that they could make an attempt hide their evil deeds and identities from the public.

    We are getting a Class Action Lawsuit ready agains Aaron Greenspan and his parents Neil Greenspan and Judith Greenspan anyone interested to sign up, in order to sue these criminals for all the emotional distress, terrorizing, harassments. stalking. job losses and reputation loss of so many people. These criminals only care about the money they can make and nothing else. These people are truly the criminals in today's society acting like they do nothing wrong. They are professional manipulators, liars and scammers.

    I was contacted by Aaron Greenspan several months ago regarding my court case on plainsite.org.
    Aaron Greenspan offered to remove my name for $9, 500 or immediately garnish my wages or even face criminal penalties. Obviously I knew I was dealing with and Extortionist, or at least a BS Artist . He then sent several more mail notices and began to call me routinely. Always being very gracious and business like, I ordered Aaron Greenspan to Cease and Desist . GREENSPAN was extremely angry and continued to harass me. After I conferred with my Attorney/CPA, I was made aware that the documented violations of the FTC collection practices violated .I would advise anyone who is contacted or called by this greenspan to inform these bogus and unscrupulous vermin and bottom feeding liars that you will not speak to them or discuss any issues with them either by mail or by phone. This fool who called me is skilled and attempts to intimidate and frighten you with a number of threats that he cannot pursue without due process pursuant to your Constitutional Rights. Greenspan and vermin of this type are very skilled in how they make you think you are going to be garnished or have immediate action taken against you. I suggest you contact any firm or agency mentioned by these people. investigate the issue independently as I did. After taking care of this I called this place ans asked for the name and address and to speak to the President and CEO of this company. I was hung up on by someone twice. We have written to the Department of Revenue about this entire issue and have received correspondence.

    These people are schooled in creating fear and chaos in your mind. Be strong Americans.

    @plainsite aarongreenspan is a felon and extortionist. just type in his name and read about all his arrest records and extortionist lawsuits
    activities . He will slander you for no reason and will make a liar out of you even if you tell the truth. Aaron will threaten your school to make you quit and will aggressively enforce others to believe in their false lies about other people even if the people writing on the site tells the truth they will not believe you and you abusively slander you and Google, and all internet sites allow this to happen. Cyber Bullying Is against the law and Complaints Board is also involved in this slander. Beware of aaron greenspan and his criminal crew family . If they attack you get a lawyer and threaten them back! If they harass your life in any way don't allow them.

    .To our discouragement, we asked Greenspan to remove our court records. He told us he never removes court records complaints even if they are not true And our only option was to arbitrate the complaint. But first we have to pay scam report $9400 . Wow wow this is no 501 c non-profit. He said to donate it to Think Computer Foundation. This guy is a piece of work.

    The other day is walks in this exact guy and walked into Tesla location. Took many pictures and made some snarky comments. I had seen him before because he stalks the place. He walks up to me and asked for 2 freeTesla coloring book and crayons then handed me his business card. He looked like a dirty pedophile so I told him we ran out. He threw a temper tantrums and started yelling that he is the founder of Facebook. He also mentioned runs a non profit called Think Computer Foundation that helps children. This guy should not be near children and seemed autistic. I really was scared and could see he was carrying some type of weapon.

    I found a free pdf of his book. Aaron is a Pathological Liar and psychopathic narcissist sociopath. Very creepy. Here is the bio.

    Aaron Greenspan
    Authoritas: One Student's Harvard Admissions and the Founding of the Facebook Era

    Dscription
    Product description
    Aaron Greenspan was just like any other recent Harvard graduate until the day he read that his invention, a Web site called The Facebook, was worth billions. Authoritas follows a boy and his autistic brother from public school to the hyper-competitive college admissions process and beyond. It sheds light on education, autism, and the astronomical growth of The Facebook, making for an engrossing story that any student, parent, teacher, or entrepreneur will relate to.

    About the Author
    Aaron Greenspan started Think Computer Corporation from his bedroom in Shaker Heights, Ohio at the age of 15. While he attended high school, Aaron grew Think to support more than 150 businesses, individuals and schools across the United States and Canada. He subsequently changed the focus of the company from IT consulting to software development. In October of 2000, Aaron spearheaded the creation of Think Computer Foundation, a 501(c)3 non-profit organization with the goal of helping children through technology. Aaron invented The Facebook while attending Harvard College in September 2003. He graduated cum laude from Harvard in three years (Advanced Standing) with an A.B. in Economics in 2004. He lives in Palo Alto, California.

    Aaron constantly making threats towards others users. He has put other users personal information in the web where everyone can see it. Then he has hacked into people's email accounts as well.. If nothing is done to resolve this matter, our next course of action is a class-action lawsuit against the plainsite.org and the people involved. We have already consulted an attorney, however, we would like the company to step up to the plate and do something about it, so we don't have to drag this into court.

He started told me one sad story after another especially about how he was mugged while jogging, and as a result suffered severe brain damage which made him not being able to walk for a few years.I did some research and with the use of the Internet talked to another man he met called rusty who owns a high tech company in San Jose he played the same game with him! The sad thing is he is doing this straight married men. This guy needs some help as he is living in a fantasy world.

    @Herman G We know that he received SSI, Food Stamps and gaming the entire public benefits system, while making money with plainsite.org and he falsely claims on his tax returns that he makes $0 when he makes a few thousand a year with plainsite.org and he extorts $4, 500 from the public for every URL removal on plainsite.org.

    Neil and Judy Greenspan also collect public assistance for their younger son Simon by claiming that all their expenditures outweigh their incomes, which is all a made up lie.
    Aaron Greenspan really uses his parent address in Shaker Heights, Ohio but stays off the grid by renting out rooms, or sub-Leasing apartments or houses so that he can hide his whereabouts from the public, as he screws people over so that these criminals can make a little money.

    WHAT'S NOT WORKING
    Mission Street parking: It was shortly after 3 p.m. on Feb. 20, when Aaron Greenspan pulled his car into the parking spot at Mission Street and New Montgomery. Greenspan - a Peninsula software engineer visiting San Francisco for a meeting - saw a sign that said, "No Parking 2 a.m. to 6 a.m." Satisfied he was in a good spot, Greenspan got out and fed the meter $3 in quarters, raced off to his meeting - and then came back to find his car had been towed. Greenspan had missed the sign above the "No Parking" sign, obscured by tree leaves, that said: "Tow Away. No Stopping. ... 3 p.m. to 6 p.m." Greenspan spent more than $300 to retrieve his car and pay the fine. He appealed the penalty to the San Francisco Controller's Office, to no avail. The hidden "Tow Away" sign has been the downfall of many other drivers who park in the spot, according to workers at the Tart to Tart cafe that fronts the spot. They say they're constantly warning customers about the tow times.

    For Greenspan, contacting ChronicleWatch produced a positive result: Friday, the San Francisco Department of Public Works sent someone to trim the Mission Street tree. But Greenspan says the tree was only part of the problem. He thinks the city should put all parking restrictions on one sign - not spread them out over multiple signs. While the city has since changed its meters to warn motorists about the parking restrictions, Greenspan thinks the city benefits from the confusion. "This particular stretch of Mission seems to be a cash cow for the city, " he says.

  • @Kyle Bergson SJ Very dangerous and disturbing. We should becarefull with open eyes and ears. The article is saying that Aaron Greenspan has many similarities to Jason Voorhees. So this 'Jason Voorhees" is the main character of the slasher horror film series, Friday the 13th. A superhuman freak with an insatiable appetite for murder, this masked monstrosity has butchered hundreds of people out an insane desire for revenge against those who have intruded upon his home of Camp Crystal Lake. Aaron Greenspan web troll of www.plainsite.org is very revengeful and has gone after people. Has he done anything viloient against anyone. Currently I very worried.

    https://www.upcounsel.com/blog/aaron-greenspan-versus-silicon-valley

    Aaron Greenspan, the software entrepreneur who founded Think Computer, is a little like Jason Voorhees of the Friday the 13th movies: he just keeps coming back. On Monday, May 6, 2013 the arch enemy of Facebook creator Mark Zuckerberg filed suit against not only that ubiquitous social network but most of Silicon Valley.

    Think Computer’s latest suit zeroes in on what it terms “money services businesses” or “MSBs” including companies that make digital payments and transfer cash like PayPal, and funders from large investment firms to solo “angel” financiers. The connection is that most of the companies are startups who were funded by the named investment firms and angels. Among Think Computer’s defendants in the 146 page complaint are A-Grade, Airbnb, Andreessen Horowitz, Coinbase, DST Global, Dwolla, Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers, PayPal and Slide co-founder Max Levchin, Reddit CEO Yishan Wong, Sequoia Capital, Square, and Y Combinator.

    What’s getting Greenspan so steamed up? What he calls “myriad violations” of both the California Money Transmission Act (MTA) and the Bank Secrecy Act, to start with. He also accuses the defendants of generally “unlawful, unfair, fraudulent and deceptive business activities.” He cites his own experience operating an MSB, FaceCash, as proof of the malfeasance of the defendants—an interesting approach.

    Aaron Greenspan’s argument goes something like this. FaceCash was working wonderfully until July 1, 2011. That’s when the MTA went into effect and, ostensibly, anyway, started its role as regulator of all domestic money transmissions in California. At that point all MSBs in the state were required to work with the California Department of Financial Institutions (DFI) to achieve licensure for money transmission. Greenspan alleges that he tried to do just that, beginning his license application process well in advance of the deadline, to no avail.

    In fact, Aaron Greenspan and FaceCash were never able to get licensed. That led to another lawsuit, still pending, in the same court that will now be hearing this latest case. This is the basis for the latest case, in fact: Greenspan alleges that since the process was essentially impossible thanks to “insurmountable difficulties with the DFI’s unwritten and arbitrary policies, ” the fact that these other MSBs did grow their businesses without ever attempting to comply with the licensure requirements establishes their guilt.

    His argument is that everyone knows that it’s impossible to comply with the MTA, and no one gets caught when they don’t, so none of the startup MSB defendants did. Ergo, they and their investors (also defendants for this reason) knew their actions were illegal (or, in the case of the investors, were willfully negligent).

    He may be right, and it seems obvious that California’s MTA is much tougher than comparable laws in other states. (Of course his railing against the MTA in this particular lawsuit is misplaced; whether or not the MTA is unfair has no relevance to the issue of whether these defendants are violators.) Unfortunately for Aaron Greenspan, he has sued enough people to seem litigious at best—his own word choice—and a little crazy at worst (that last word choice is mine). Still, his complaint raises some valid points assuming the facts are true, and this remains a case to watch.

    @Plainsite.org is a stalker Aaron Greenspan uses the email finance at ThinkComputer.org that is illegally linked to a PayPal account where he is asking the public for money stating that plainsite.iorg is a non-profit which is a big lie. IRS told us that what Aaron Greenspan is doing is illegal because plainsite.org was never authorized to be a non-profit and that he is illegally claiming this under Think Computer Foundation.

    Aaron Greenspan will have to pay lots of money back to the Federal and State Government and will be criminally charged for fraud.

    @Not so plainsite Honest Dodo bird Aaron Greenspan stalked Free law project under the alias of John Fuenchem .

    Toggle navigation
    Free Law Project
    Who is John Fuenchem and Why is he Contacting Me About Free Law Project and/or RECAP?
    “John Fuenchem” is an alias adopted by a RECAP user who is frustrated with the way Free Law Project is run, and in particular with some changes to the way the RECAP system works. These changes were announced in November 2017, and he has been waging an email and social media campaign on this topic since that time. We are sorry that he is contacting you today and absorbing your time. He has absorbed a lot of our time too, and this page serves to document who he is (as much as we know), and what he has done and continues to do.

    Since November 2017, when we released a new and vastly improved version of RECAP, “Fuenchem” has been contacting numerous journalists and individuals. His typical approach is to identify somebody that supports Free Law Project publicly, either on Twitter or elsewhere, and to send that person emails listing his grievances and encouraging that person to spread the word.

    In addition to contacting our supporters, he has also approached numerous journalists and individuals that are important in the legal world and encouraged them write articles or otherwise spread the word. Of the many journalists that “Fuenchem” has contacted, only one has chosen to write an article, despite many of them discussing the topic with our executive director, Michael Lissner.

    The one article that was written explains the changes that were made to RECAP in detail, and has several quotes from our executive director and others explaining the situation. It serves as a good place to get some background:

    https://www.lawsitesblog.com/2018/02/invective-intrigue-within-free-law-movement-recap-changes.html

    We had hoped that with that article published, “Fuenchem” would stop his crusade, but unfortunately he continued sending his emails to numerous people. Many of those people forwarded the emails to our executive director, who began keeping a log of the emails on Twitter:

    https://twitter.com/mlissner/status/965450638099230720

    “Fuenchem” has sent at least dozens of these emails, but he will not tell us precisely how many.

    At the same time that he was writing these emails, “Fuenchem” was also finding blog posts about Free Law Project or RECAP and posting his grievances as comments.

    After many months of these ongoing and voluminous communications, our executive director decided to attempt to address “Fuenchem’s” grievances head on by writing him an email. Perhaps, we thought, directly addressing his concerns would end the months-long crusade to discredit Free Law Project. After emailing with him for many days and answering dozens of his questions, our executive director had written more than 12, 000 words in reply.

    Rather than be satisfied by these responses, “Fuenchem” converted them into a Q&A he posted on a blog he created for that purpose. This effectively doxed private emails from our executive director while putting them in a different context than they were intended. The “Q&A” can be found on the webpage created by “Fuenchem, ” here:

    https://recapchanges.blogspot.com/2018/07/q-with-mike-lissner.html

    And archived, here:

    https://web.archive.org/web/[protected]/https://recapchanges.blogspot.com/2018/07/q-with-mike-lissner.html

    When “Fuenchem” shared a draft of his “Q&A” with our executive director in July 2018, our executive director firmly requested that it not be published. It took his emails out of context (the emails were not written to be directly part of a Q&A), and the Q&A omitted critical details, such as those listed above regarding the email and social media campaign that “Fuenchem” had been waging over the previous six months.

    In recent days, “Fuenchem” has concluded that because our executive director won’t share detailed financial and donor records with him, that must mean there’s a secret that’s being hidden and a scandal to be uncovered. He continues asking questions and seems dead set on continuing to contact people. His latest email concludes with a clear threat to contact the IRS and additional journalists:

    If you continue refusing to answer these questions when I ask them, maybe you’ll be more forthcoming with various journalists or the IRS. These questions are not going away and neither am I.

    So at this point, we have tried ignoring him for around six months, tried addressing his grievances directly, and we have dealt with the questions he stirred up with journalists and RECAP users.

    As a very small organization we have limited resources for public outreach and, having learned that he is never satisfied with our answers and seems only to want to find conspiracy and scandal where there is none, we have concluded that we will no longer waste our limited resources on him. He has consumed a lot of our time and we again apologize if he has absorbed yours. We hope that you will just ignore his emails. We wish we had.

    If you have lingering questions, or if he has contacted you, please feel free to send us an email.

    Conclusions
    “Fuenchem” will not reveal who he is. He claims he is using the alias to protect himself, but he has been using it since at least 2015 according to a somewhat rude support request he sent us, which concludes:

    Overall, I find the browser extension to be frustrating and difficult to use. I have wasted many billable pages trying to figure out why documents weren’t uploading. Please do something to fix these problems.

    “Fuenchem” also refuses to speak to our executive director on the phone to discuss his grievances.

    “Fuenchem” has contacted dozens of people over a period of six months. He won’t say how many. Only one of those people has taken him up on his offer to write an article about the topic. The result was a well-researched piece explaining the changes and including supportive statements from leaders in the field.

    Despite protracted and strenuous attempts, “Fuenchem’s” grievances are not satisfied. It seems they never will be.

    It’s entirely unclear why Fuenchem has decided to wage this crusade against Free Law Project and RECAP.

    “Fuenchem” has absorbed an incredible amount of people’s time.

    Invective and Intrigue Within the Free Law Movement Over RECAP Changes
    By Robert Ambrogi on February 16, 2018
    Disagreement over recent changes to a program designed to provide public access to federal court documents has developed into a feud of sorts between two advocates for free and open access to government information – and implicated in it is a cast of characters that includes the man who created the original version of Facebook, another man who may not actually exist, and a variety of people willing to weigh in with their opinions, but unwilling to do so on the record.

    The feud involves RECAP, a program run by the Free Law Project (FLP) to collect documents downloaded from the federal judiciary’s fee-based PACER system and make them available for free in a publicly accessible archive. To collect PACER documents, RECAP encourages lawyers and legal researchers to use its extension for Chrome and Firefox browsers that automatically captures every document downloaded from PACER and delivers it to the RECAP archive.

    The feud began after FLP rolled out an updated version of the RECAP extension in November. Prior to the update, RECAP delivered documents to two repositories – the RECAP archive hosted by FLP and a separate archive hosted by the Internet Archive. But with the update, FLP said it would no longer push documents to the Internet Archive in real time and instead would upload PACER data there only quarterly.

    Aaron Greenspan
    For most users of the extension and the archive, this change was hardly noticed. In fact, it brought improvements, most notably making documents downloaded from PACER available more quickly on the FLP archive and eliminating restrictions on uploads of large dockets.

    But behind the scenes, something else changed. FLP has long made the bulk PACER data available to developers of other free legal research sites through an application programming interface (API). But with the data now being hosted in real time solely in its own archive, FLP decided to ask these developers to pay a monthly fee to help support the project.

    One who was none too happy about that was Aaron Greenspan. Greenspan is perhaps best known as the Harvard classmate of Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg who first created a web-based student portal that included a feature called “The Face Book.” In 2009, he settled a trademark dispute with Facebook for an undisclosed amount. He later sued Columbia Pictures for not including him in the movie, “The Social Network.”

    These days, Greenspan runs Think Computer Corporation, a software development company, and its non-profit sibling, Think Computer Foundation. Together, they run PlainSite, a website dedicated to providing the public with free access to legal documents and information about the legal system.

    PlainSite was a site that used the RECAP data. But when FLP Executive Director Mike Lissner contacted Greenspan in November and asked him to pay a monthly fee of between $500 and $1, 000 to continue to use the data, Greenspan went public with his complaint, publishing a blog post in which he said that PlainSite would no longer support the RECAP project.

    We are frankly shocked that an organization calling itself the “Free Law Project” would dare to suggest a model that is obviously anything but free in either the monetary or the general sense. Essentially, CourtListener is now a clearinghouse for legal materials with a gatekeeper business model similar to that of Lexis-Nexis or Westlaw. While it may not be charging end-users, it is planning to charge startups and non-profits, while trading on the brand and good-will of the RECAP name, to which we have been one of the largest, if not the largest, financial contributor. Those proposed costs will need to be passed on.

    A second site that relied on the RECAP data, United States Courts Archive, shut down as a result of the change. A notice posted on the site says:

    Due to changes in the way the RECAP Project is hosting court records from the federal PACER system, we are no longer able to retrieve and make available federal court records in a timely manner. The reason we created this web site in the first place was to make the RECAP records easier to access and use. RECAP’s new web site, hosted at www.courtlistener.com, has greatly improved document searchability and accessibility. Therefore, we have decided that it is not worth the effort to re-engineer this site to work with the new RECAP API. This means that we have decided to retire the United State Courts Archive web site and direct you to other options.

    I reached out to the lawyer who operated this site to discuss his decision to close it down. He declined to discuss the matter on the record.

    Over the last week or so, I have been talking to some of the people involved, directly or indirectly, in this dispute. Here is what I have learned.

    The Mysterious Mr. Fuenchem

    Early in January, I received an email from John Fuenchem. He wrote:

    You may be interested in knowing that the Free Law Project has decided to charge other organizations money to access RECAP documents, and it now denies access to organizations which refuse to pay. The new version of the RECAP plug-in only uploads documents to the FLP’s own CourtListener site, while other sites, such as PlainSite and the United States Courts Archive, are no longer being updated in real time.

    He encouraged me to read Greenspan’s blog post and to get in touch with Greenspan directly. He concluded:

    I hope you share my concern about the FLP’s decision, and I hope you feel that public discussion about the issue is warranted. I hope you will consider writing a post about this on LawSites or tweeting a link to Mr. Greenspan’s blog post.

    I’d already read Greenspan’s post and had been meaning to follow-up on it. But Fuenchem’s email piqued my interest for another reason: John Fuenchem seemed not to exist.

    His email came from a Yahoo! Canada address. It had no signature and provided no explanation of Fuenchem’s interest in this matter or his relationship to Greenspan. A Google search found no such person by that name. So who is John Fuenchem?

    Greenspan’s Objections

    Meanwhile, I also heard from Greenspan, who pointed me to a second blog post he had written about RECAP, published Feb. 5. This post noted the closing of the United States Courts Archive website, which I mentioned above, and suggested that it was because of FLP’s decision to begin charging for access to bulk data.

    This image, still on the FLP’s website, shows the flow of documents from PACER through the RECAP Firefox extension into the Internet Archive.
    (Note that the notice posted on the United States Courts Archive website said nothing about fees.)

    Greenspan’s post also speculated that DocketAlarm’s decision to be acquired by Fastcase might also have been motivated by FLP’s request for payment. Greenspan wrote:

    This kind of anti-competitive behavior would be questionable were it attributable to a for-profit corporation, but it is completely inexcusable coming from a nominal non-profit organization. RECAP should be inspiring new sites, not the underlying reason behind the closure of existing ones. The Free Law Project must either restore RECAP’s Internet Archive functionality, or relinquish its role in maintaining RECAP and convert to a for-profit corporation that focuses on CourtListener as a commercial product.

    Greenspan also sent me copies of emails he sent to Lissner, FLP’s director, and board members Brian Carver and Ansel Halliburton. In the first, sent Nov. 19, 2017, he outlined his concerns with the RECAP changes. His email described a number of concerns, starting with this:

    This new plan, where RECAP flows first to CourtListener in real-time and then to the Internet Archive once per calendar quarter (maybe?), fundamentally changes the nature of the plug-in in a way that I simply don’t agree with, and I find it surprising that others would agree with it as well. Mike explained that FLP’s view is that the Internet Archive is intended to be a backup repository, not a primary source for data; therefore, FLP should treat it that way. I understand that there are some architectural reasons why this may be true, but even assuming that it is true, the fact is that for many years the Internet Archive has served as a platform-independent and totally neutral clearinghouse for PACER information with A) zero cost for project end users and participants; and B) very few technical problems for either. In contrast, the new plug-in version thus far favors one platform (CourtListener) over all others, sounds like it will be expensive, and has serious bugs that are impairing its functionality, at least whenever I try to use it. In due course I’m sure the bugs will get worked out, but right now, that’s the reality.

    Greenspan said that his Think Computer Foundation had directly provided $15, 000 toward the development of RECAP and in support of FLP and that, including matching grants, its total indirect contribution to RECAP was $25, 000. “I was happy to contribute my share of those funds because I knew that they would benefit a public good that would help both end users of the plugin and other legal technology startups looking to use it, ” he wrote.

    He also said that, as a condition of that contribution, he had asked that he be kept in the loop on FLP’s work. That never happened, he said, and he was given no advance notice of the changes to RECAP.

    I was informed of this new FLP business model last week, after the new RECAP plugin was released. As you know, and as stated above, the new RECAP plugin does not update the Internet Archive. That means that FLP has effectively cut off one of PlainSite’s main information sources, and it did so with no prior notice. PlainSite may not be RECAP’s largest user or contributor, but it is a major one.

    Lissner responded the next day.

    There’s definitely some change here, and I don’t want to minimize that. We didn’t make this decision lightly, and actually had to hold several meetings to come to consensus around it. It’s a big change in how we think about things and in the services we provide. Like I said on the phone, ideally, everything would always be free, but so far that hasn’t been a winning strategy for us.

    He took issue with Greenspan’s contention that there had been no technical problems with the former versions of the RECAP browser extensions, asserting that, in fact, there had been a lot of problems – a point Greenspan later conceded and that several others I’ve spoken to have confirmed.

    Lissner also apologized for not notifying Greenspan of the changes in advance, attributing this to his frantic work schedule in getting the new extensions ready to release. He went on to address several of the technical issues Greenspan’s email had raised, and then concluded:

    I always appreciate getting your perspective. Let me know if you want to have another phone call to talk about this some more. It’s definitely a big change in how the system works and I know it’s impacting you. Hopefully we can find a good way forward.

    On Nov. 21, Greenspan sent a reply in which he continued to express his dissatisfaction with the changes. He wrote in part:

    Fundamentally I don’t think you can have it both ways. You are seemingly looking for a model that allows Free Law Project to sit in the middle as a gatekeeper and effectively profit at least enough to pay yourself a salary, but that isn’t what “Free Law” means. The beauty of RECAP was that in a world of Lexis and Westlaw, there was finally a working system with no gatekeeper.

    Had you come to your previous donors (or potential ones) with a clear request for funding and a clear outline of the additional functionality you intended to deliver with the additional support, I think you may have received a different response, at least from me, than you’re getting now. This feels more like a hostage situation—you are, after all, telling me what I can no longer do unless I pay up again—and even though you are clearly a talented developer, to be frank, I no longer think you are the right person to be running FLP. I regret that I have to even say this, but if this were a commercial transaction where I had paid for software development services (rather than just donated), I would take you to court for fraud, extortion and tortious interference with prospective economic advantage. I’m not actually going to do that of course. My point is just to emphasize how totally backward I think your approach is here. You just blew up part of something I built which worked smoothly for six years and helped pay my bills.

    I’ll leave it there. I’m clearly disappointed in the new approach and I can no longer support your organization financially or otherwise.

    A Conversation with Greenspan

    In addition to corresponding with Greenspan by email, he and I spoke by phone. “I have a lot of respect for Mike, ” he told me. “He did an amazing job building RECAP.”

    But Greenspan said he felt blindsided by the new extension and Lissner’s request for a monthly fee to use the data, especially given that Greenspan’s foundation had supported the project financially.

    “He never followed up, ” Greenspan said. “I was not kept in the loop. I told him that point blank.”

    Greenspan believes that the decision to charge a fee is due in part to Lissner’s desire to be paid a higher salary. According to tax records, Lissner is paid about $90, 000 a year. (Lissner told me the actual amount is less than that.) Greenspan notes that living in the Bay Area is expensive and that Lissner understandably wants to do the best he can to support his family.

    But, he argues, “rearranging the entire free judicial docket system for one person’s benefit is against everything people associated with this movement stand for.”

    What Others Are Saying

    Greenspan is not the only one to write critically of FLP’s changes. Benjamin Edelman, an associate professor at Harvard Business School who specializes in the economics of online markets, published a post on Jan. 22 in which he questioned FLP’s approach. He outlined several concerns, one of which addressed FLP’s decision to charge for bulk access.

    [C]harging for access to documents seems in sharp tension with RECAP’s promise to users. The organization’s very name — “Free Law” — calls for distributing materials not just without charge, but also without restriction. Indeed, FLP filed an amicus brief in the National Veterans Legal case stating that the FLP is a “nonprofit organization established in 2013 to provide free, public, and permanent access to primary legal materials on the internet for educational, charitable, and scientific purposes to the benefit of the general public and the public interest.”

    He also expressed concern about FLP’s lack of advance notice of the changes.

    FLP announced the delayed data distribution as a fait accompli, not soliciting input ahead of time from the users who contribute documents and code to the RECAP plug-in. That’s a natural approach for a commercial service, and maybe appropriate for some non-profits, but hard to reconcile with the position of stewardship I had understood RECAP and FLP to aspire to.

    On GitHub, John Hawkinson, a Massachusetts freelance journalist, took issue with Edelman’s post insofar as it suggested that RECAP-collected documents would no longer be available to the public as soon as they are collected. With the November change, these documents are now available to the public nearly instantly, he wrote, and much faster than they were under the prior RECAP version. “They’re on courtlistener.com rather than archive.org but that doesn’t mean they’re unavailable, ” he wrote.

    Thomas Bruce, director of the Legal Information Institute at Cornell Law School and a former member of FLP’s board, said that FLP’s decision to charge fees is not unreasonable.

    This is the latest in a long-running series of episodes that reveal how hit-or-miss the system of distribution for American legal information actually is. Assembling and maintaining a resource that combines the work product of many law creators – or a platform that supports crowdsourcing of that activity – is more than a full-time job, and somehow those who do it need to be able to buy groceries. Fees are not unreasonable, especially when they are minimal compared with overall costs. That said, we’re still in a world where distribution is haphazard and there is no organization (mine included) that is doing everything it could to ensure that distribution of costs and benefits is both as wide-ranging and fair as it could be.

    Mike Lissner Responds

    Mike Lissner, FLP’s director, admits that he did not do a good job of communicating with Greenspan about the changes, and points out that he has apologized to him about that.

    Mike Lissner
    But he stands by the decision to change the RECAP extension, which he says was done to improve its performance and speed and eliminate bugs. PACER documents captured through the RECAP extension always went first to the FLP’s server, where they were then sent to the Internet Archive.

    FLP intends to continue sending this data to the Archive, but will now do so only on a quarterly basis. Lissner had hoped to do the first quarterly upload at the end of 2017, but he has yet to do that. The reason for the delay, he says, is that the first upload will be huge and he is trying to figure out how best to accomplish it. FLP has enhanced several million documents in its collection by adding previously missing docket numbers, and all those enhanced documents need to be uploaded to replace the versions that already reside on the Internet Archive, in addition to many new documents.

    Regarding the decision to charge other developers for bulk downloads, Lissner argues that large users of the data should contribute something to the cost of collecting it, and he says that Greenspan is the largest user of all.

    “We’re a non-profit, of course, but we can’t give everything away for free forever, ” he says.

    “Aaron’s running a business. He gets ads. He’s not a non-profit. But he’s unwilling to contribute anything back.”

    As for pricing, Lissner agrees that he asked Greenspan for a monthly fee in the range of $500 to $1, 000. But that was a suggestion, he says, and he was happy to discuss it and try to agree on an amount that would work.

    “If someone is running their business and using our service, I think there should be a relationship there, ” Lissner said. “If Aaron had come back and said he’s not making any money on PlainSite, I would have said, ‘Go ahead and use it.’”

    I asked Lissner about Greenspan’s contention that this is all about Lissner’s desire to be paid a higher salary. Lissner responded that his salary is determined by the board, not by him, and that the board was deeply involved in reviewing and approving all aspects of the RECAP changes.

    He also took issue with Greenspan’s suggestion that UnitedStatesCourts.org was shut down because of the new fees. The lawyer behind that site operated it as a side project and, after the changes in November, came to the conclusion that FLP’s new RECAP site was so improved that it no longer made sense for him to maintain his site. That, in fact, is what he said in the notice posted on his site, when he wrote:

    RECAP’s new web site … has greatly improved document searchability and accessibility. Therefore, we have decided that it is not worth the effort to re-engineer this site to work with the new RECAP API.

    Lissner said he is sorry that this disagreement between Greenspan and him has become public, but he maintains that Greenspan is the only person truly affected by this.

    And What About Mr. Fuenchem?

    I spoke to several people in preparing this post, some of whom refused to be quoted or identified on the record. But John Fuenchem was the only one who refused to be identified even off the record.

    Two people I spoke to speculated that Fuenchem is actually a sockpuppet for Greenspan. They believe Greenspan fabricated him in order to help lobby for his anti-FLP campaign.

    Greenspan denied this. “For the record, ” he wrote me, “I am not John Fuenchem.”

    Fuenchem also denied it. While he did not agree to reveal his identity, he did agree to speak with me by phone.

    He lives in Canada and works in the legal profession. He is not a lawyer, but he is preparing to become one. His concern with this issue, he told me, stemmed from the fact that he has been a regular RECAP user and has contributed hundreds of dollars’ worth of documents to it.

    “The FLP says it is going to make these documents available to everyone, ” he said. “I don’t think they have a right to deny access to other organizations.”

    Fuenchem said he was also concerned about FLP’s lack of transparency in never announcing these changes in advance.

    He exchanged several emails with Lissner, he said, but Lissner would not confirm whether FLP planned to charge other organizations for access to the documents.

    So is Fuenchem just a nom de guerre for Greenspan? If so, then Greenspan does a mean imitation of a Canadian accent. But I don’t think so.

    My Thoughts

    Both Free Law Project and PlainSite are fighting the good fight for public access to court information – information that should be public in the first place, but isn’t.

    The FLP does important work. In addition to RECAP, it hosts CourtListener, a free website for researching legal opinions and tracking legal topics. Recently, it went through a massive project to download every opinion and order from PACER and make them available through the RECAP archive. Two years ago, it launched a nationwide database of biographical information on federal and state judges. The variety of projects FLP is working on can be seen on its GitHub page.

    It does all this on a scant budget. Its 2016 Form 990 showed revenues of just $54, 528 against expenses of $92, 000. The year before, it had revenue of $95, 446, but much lower expenses, at $28, 057. The rise in expenses appears to be due to an increase in the salary paid to Lissner, from $27, 000 in 2015 to $90, 000 in 2016. (As noted earlier, Lissner says the amount he is actually paid is less than this.)

    Lissner’s argument is that someone has to help foot this bill, and that it makes more sense for the FLP to seek contributions from major users such as PlainSite than to start charging fees to its everyday users such as you and me.

    Maybe some major foundation will step up and underwrite FLP’s work. But until that happens, I tend to agree with Lissner that big users ought somehow to contribute. I don’t know anything about PlainSite’s finances or its ability to pay, and it’s not for me to know.

    But I’d hope that Greenspan and Lissner could sit down and come up with an arrangement that works for both of them. In the end, they’re both fighting for the same cause, and a feud between allies serves no one’s interest – especially not the public’s.

    The 6 weirdest alternative currency stories ever

    The world of alternative currencies brings with it a host of scammers, stealers and black market sellers. They bring a bad name to decentralized systems like bitcoin. The fact that it is a network of financial value that spread across the globe has seemingly brought to it a degree of strangeness. Today, let’s take a look at some of the weirdest alternative currency stories over the past few years.

    Bitcoin savings & trust
    As a hedge fund, Bitcoin Savings & Trust promised its investors spectacular returns. And its investors, seeking more opportunity than just what bitcoins could provide, willfully provided the principal of the fund with over $5 million in BTC. Even the title of this “fund” might put an investor off. But that’s not what Bitcoin Savings & Trust thought. Of course, that’s probably because the “Trust” part in the name was fakery. It was scamming people. When the proprietor, named Pirateat40 on the Bitcointalk forums stopped paying, this is what he told investors.

    bitcoinsavings

    That’s the complete description of a Ponzi scam. It’s been reported that the SEC is investigating this, but there hasn’t been any news on this in quite some time. The moral of the story is that you shouldn’t expect someone to make a high return for you on an investment in bitcoins. Or any money.

    Aaron Greenspan sues Silicon Valley for transmitting money
    A lot of companies take money from people and allow them to spend it in “credits”. According to a law passed in California, any business that operates in this way must register with the state as a money transmitter. Business Insider has referred to the law, known as the Money Transmission Act (MTA) as an “Innovation Killing Law” for California-based startups. That’s because, among other rules, it requires a large financial commitment in order to be in business: a net worth of $500, 000.

    facecash

    Greenspan, an internet entrepreneur and owner of Think Computer, experienced an example of this innovation killing when California authorities couldn’t even give him the guidance to operate his FaceCash mobile payments business legally. For this reason, he decided to sue Facebook for its Credits platform, Dwolla for its payments system, Stanford for its student ID payment system, both CoinLab and CoinBase for Bitcoin exchanges, among others since they aren’t registered. Ridiculous law? You decide. There’s a plan to reform it, but progress is moving slow.

    Aaron Greenspan obsessed with making everyone miserable.

    @Aaron_Greenspan so·ci·o·path FANTASTIC ARTICLE on Think Computer Foundation, Neil S. Greenspan and Aaron Greenspan fraud chairty.

    https://medium.com/@notbenshooter/nonprofit-plainsite-attacks-people-online-5fbec84d5489

    There is a guy by the name of Aaron Greenspan who hates Tesla very much. His hatred has made his heart angry and bitter and has turned him into a creepy stalker who uses his 501(c)3 Nonprofit organization to attack Tesla owners and supporters online. Before we dive into his list of victims with screenshots of his attacks, let’s take a look at his charity and the people who support it.
    PlainSite.
    PlainSite is a joint venture with Think Computer Corporation and Think Computer Foundation (same thing) which is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization in the United States. According to GuideStar, it’s mission is to use technology to assist people with disabilities.
    EIN: 34–1937820
    Address: 20560 SHELBURNE RD SHAKER HTS, OH 44122
    Principal Officer: Aaron Greenspan
    Who Supports This?
    Russel Mitchell of the LA Times is a contributor even though he has been told by multiple sources that PlainSite attacks and bullies people online. It seems that the LA Times is fine with their reporters contributing to online bullying.
    Dana Hull, a Bloomberg reporter who covers Tesla, wrote this piece showing support of PlainSite. Perhaps she is unaware of their online bullying or looks away since she has not been targeted.

    Quite a few reporters and editors over at Forbes also follow this organization on Twitter. You can tell by looking at their list of followers. I like to give people the benefit of a doubt — perhaps many of their followers don’t use Twitter that much and don’t realize they are supporting an online bully.

    Victims Of PlainSite
    Omar Qazi
    The first victim is Omar Qazi, a well-known member of the Tesla community who owns a Tesla and is outspoken about his support via a popular parody account.
    PlainSite even has a profile for Omar which is creepy.

    Johnna Crider
    Johnna Crider is a writer and an artist. She writes for CleanTechnica. At first, PlainSite tried to discredit her as an author by wording tweets to insinuate that she is an ill-informed artist.

    When attacking her credibility didn’t work, PlainSite then started making insane accusations about Johnna by wording tweets to insinuate that she is a source of fake Twitter accounts and claiming her account has Nigerian bots.

    Viv

    Viv is a young woman in Germany who is a fan of Tesla, Elon Musk, and SpaceX. Elon Musk has interacted quite a lot with her this year and it landed her in a position to be targeted by PlainSite. Viv is also a talented video editor who uses her skills to make beautiful Tesla and SpaceX videos for the communities to enjoy.
    PlainSite also accused another user, Pauline, who actually targeted Viv and drastically changed her appearance to look like Viv, of being the same person. The nonprofit organization also accused them both of working for Tesla — which would not be a crime if the accusation were true.

    28DelaysLater
    The account, affectionately known as 28 for short and for his love of puppies is the force behind the FrunkPuppy Movement. He is also an active-duty member of the US Military and owns a Tesla. He has kept his last name private, however via his own Twitter account, Aaron Greenspan doxxed his identity and his very private information regarding what he does for the military. I will be blurring that information out in the photos.
    His accusation is that Earl attacked disabled people which Earl has not done at all. In fact, the person Earl was talking about is a fake account on Twitter that has attacked him and many members of the Tesla community simply for owning a Tesla.
