Neil S Greenspan VP and Treasurer for plainiste.org under fraudulent 501c non-profit called Think Computer

Aaron Greenspan aka Aaron Jacob Greenspan creator and owner of leagle.com and plainsite.org Aaron Greenspan's father Neil Sanford Greenspan from Shaker Heights, Ohio is the VP and Treasurer for this parasitical monetized website called plainsite.org and leagle.com.Both of these monetized websites are under fraudulent 501c's.
We know this because we have contacted the IRS' 501c office and have made inquiries. We are several people who have filed formal IRS 13909 complaints against Aaron Greenspan and his crazy father Neil Sanford Greenspan and his crazy mother Judith Keene Greenspan. She is a complete nut job! As well as this entire family/ They all have Psychiatric issues and should not even be allowed to roam the streets without being monitored and definitely not be allowed to go near a computer or upload people's personal and private legal cases from Pacer and other State Agencies.
We will not stop exposing this Sociopath Aaron Jacob Greenspan until he backs off and stops terrorizing people online with his monetized websites leagle.com and plainsite.org. Aaron Jacob Greenspan is roaming free because of our freedoms and great laws. In any other country Aaron Jacob Greenspan would be locked up in a Psychiatric Institution, placed on Haldol and never be allowed to go near a computer, smart phone or anybody's personal business. Aaron Jacob Greenspan is a serious danger to society.
If Aaron Jacob Greenspan keeps terrorizing, harassing, stalking and threatening us then we will continue to expose this slimy, sneaky little coward who is genetically demented. Currently Aaron Jacob Greenspan is making attempts to push down the truthful URL's about what a Psychopath he is and how he is intentionally destroying people's careers and reputations with no remorse and refuses to remove harmful URL's. Aaron Jacob Greenspan aka "Sociopath" is using his two monetized websites that he owns and runs called leagle.com and plainsite.org to now make attempts to push down URL's he does not like but are completely true. So, we will step it up now and come out with new information, a new website that is only dedicated to this Sociopath Aaron Jacob Greenspan and his Sociopath father Neil Sanford Greenspan.
This way Aaron Greenspan will not be able to threaten us to remove anything like he has been doing to other third party website and some have been falling for his hot air threats.
This guy is nothing but a joke and a loser.Now because Aaron Greenspan has broadened his online terrorizing, harassment and stalking we will now go full out and expose this Sociopath for what he really is a completely sick in the head Psycho.

    Aaron Greenspan is a complete Sociopath who should be legally barred from even touching a computer, smart device and or going near anyone's personal information. This individual is a complete Psycho! His father Neil S Greenspan is also the VP and Treasurer of plainsite.org and works at Case Western Reserve University. Can you believe it! This University should fire this [censor] for ruining people's careers and reputations in an intentional manner and committing tax fraud.

    Facebook 'founder' claims social media site has caused 'countless deaths' by failing to protect users
    ANDREW CHEETHAM 29 August 2018

    'The founder of the original 'Facebook' has claimed that the social media platform has caused “countless deaths” by failing to protect users.

    Aaron Greenspan, who won a confidential pay-out from Facebook after claiming he came up with the concept for the social network first, has reopened his feud with Mark Zuckerberg by claiming the social media boss sacrificed safeguards on cyberbullying, extremists and data security to pursue growth at all costs.

    In an interview with The Daily Telegraph, Mr Greenspan said Mr Zuckerberg had ignored his warnings and instead designed the platform to be as addictive as tobacco in order to recruit and keep users.
    David Icke's Sensational New Book

    “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, ” claimed Mr Greenspan, who created the 'Universal Face Book' at Harvard four months before Mr Zuckerberg registered Facebook.com and launched it incorporating features from Mr Greenspan's site.

    Mr Greenspan cited the recent leaked memo written by Facebook vice president Andrew Bosworth, in which he said the site's pursuit to "connect people" might "cost someone a life by exposing someone to bullies" or deaths in a "terrorist attack co-ordinated on our tools."'

    @Shut down plainsite.org Plenty of lawyers spend their time writing about the intersection of law and technology, but few if any are qualified to know what they’re talking about. Aaron Greenspan, on the other hand, knows about technology. Unfortunately, he learned a little something about law in the process.

    In 2004, shortly after graduating from college, I found a series of serious security flaws in one system after another, and even considered starting my career as a computer security consultant. I discovered that the username and password needed to control South Station’s merchant wireless network were “south” and “station, ” respectively (see http://www.thinkcomputer.com/cor…). I then realized that my company’s payroll vendor, a company called PayMaxx, was exposing my social security number, home address, and salary data, along with the data of many thousands of others (see http://www.thinkcomputer.com/cor…).

    No, he wasn’t sent a warm thank you for discovering security flaws. The company threatened to sue him instead. And yet he didn’t learn.

    As a slew of other security breaches appeared in the press in 2005, the GSA contracted with Unisys, a large government IT contractor, to build a software application called eOffer. The goal of the eOffer initiative was to automate the incredibly complex paper workflow necessary to approve companies for selling goods and services to the federal government. It was an expensive project requiring many programmers and resources. To secure the contract, Unisys employed one Jack Abramoff, among others, as a lobbyist in Washington, D.C. via the law firm of Greenberg Traurig LLP.

    When I signed up for eOffer I was informed that I needed a digital encryption certificate from AT&T, which I obtained and installed. It quickly became clear that the system had an enormous design flaw: anyone with such a certificate–and anyone could get one–could sign in as any company in the Department of Defense’s Central Contractor Registration (CCR) database. At the time, approximately 400, 000 companies nationwide were registered, including of course every major defense contractor, technology company, and almost all of the Fortune 1000. Once signed in, it was possible to add fake records, delete legitimate records, and edit records. It was also clear that the system did not actually delete data properly, which carried additional security risks. (See http://www.thinkcomputer.com/cor… .)

    No, he didn’t get a medal. Instead, he got a visit from a couple of representatives of the government.

    Not long after, two armed federal agents appeared at my doorstep. One of them, who had no background in computer crime, handed me a copy of the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act of 1986, and told me that I should read it.

    When the government didn’t show its appreciation for Greenspan’s informing the inspector general of the GSA about its massive computer screw up, he went to the media, generating a New York Times article that revealed the problems. The government was not amused, which is why federal agents appeared to enlighten him. After going to Washington, paying a lawyer (“My lawyer, who sat silent for two hours as I answered the government’s questions, charged several thousand dollars, which the GSA refused to reimburse later on.”) and persuading the United States Attorney that he was not a malicious hacker, but just a guy trying to alert the government to some significant problems.

    The GSA was eventually constrained to deal with the issue, In it’s letter to Congress, GSA Acting Administrator David Bibb wrote:

    As a result of this weakness, GSA has revised its security practices and has begun to execute additional reviews during software development. This practice will enable GSA to identify vulnerabilities prior to placing the software into production,

    GSA takes the integrity of its systems seriously and will make every effort to ensure that weaknesses, such as discovered in eOffer, do not occur again.

    If you say so. But that doesn’t mean there wasn’t a bad person to blame:

    From the information provided, we determined that if the weakness described by the authorized user did exist, it could be exploited only by another authorized user and that the eOffer system was not exposed to unauthorized public access. Moreover, in order for even an authorized user to gain access to another party’s information, that user would have to abuse his or her system privileges and masquerade as another user by using the other party’s unique numerical identification code before any information could be accessed.

    That’s right, the problem wasn’t the security hole big enough to drive a virtual Mack truck through, but the evil abusive masquerading geek who would exploit it.

    The lessons about dealing with the government, rhetoric versus reality, are all too familiar to lawyers at the intersection of law and prosecution. The government doesn’t want to hear its baby is ugly, and won’t appreciate your information or candor. They will, however, make sure they aren’t to blame, which usually means you are. Somebody has to be, and its not going to be them.

    But there are lessons here for lawyers as well, not about the joys of federal agents or the vagueness of the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act, 18 U.S.C. §1030. We already know that all too well. The message is that our newest, latest, coolest thing in the future of law, technology, the stuff that makes techno-lawyers ooze from every orifice, may be replete with problems, security issues, gaps, holes, whatever, and we wouldn’t have the slightest clue.

    We’re lawyers. Some may be more tech-savvy than others, but if they think they’ve got enough on the ball to find the gap that Unisys left behind, they’re nuts. We don’t know what we’re dealing with, and the best we can hope for is to trust that someone, somewhere did a far better job than we could in making sure that our groovy technological tool isn’t a monumental sinkhole of crap.

    Chances are pretty good that unless you happen to hang around with a geek like Greenspan, the only entity you have to trust is the enterprise that invented the tech itself, or the government. Is that good enough for you?

    As for some outsider who blows the whistle on technological flaws, consider how well Greenspan was treated for his efforts, and wonder how many others are prepared to stare down some armed federal agents more than once. This is the real intersection of law and technology, and it has nothing to do with how cool you would look carrying the iPad2.

    Coincidentally, I was just reading about a very similar situation in Australia. [Ed. note: link deleted.]

    I very much agree about lawyers and technology. I consider myself functionally literate in regards to information technology, but that’s a far stretch from expertise. Lawyers should definitely find a reliable IT consultant/company and lean on them hard.

    Along these lines, I recently got fed up with all the talk by legal consultant dweebs talking about the glories of cloud computing and outsourcing data. Not that I am necessarily opposed to law firms using cloud computing, but there seemed to be a lot of “blind leading the blind” in regards to the advice being given by consultants AND attorneys. So, I decided to look into it myself

    It took a bit of finagling, but I managed to get Google’s Senior Counsel for Global Compliance, (who wrote much of Google’s Terms of Service), on the phone for a conversation about law firms using Google’s cloud services. He had a very definitive take on the situation and expressed a more nuanced view than I have seen give by “experts.” I’m working on a post / article about it now.

    In the interim, if anyone out there is running a law firm and is using Google Consumer accounts for firm employees & lawyers – you should probably re-consider the idea.

    @Shut down plainsite.org YES! plainsite.org needs to be shut down like yesterday. My cousin who lost her job because of this Sociopath filed all kinds of Tax complaints with the IRS against this guy and his father who we read is the Vice President. The complaints will continue to be filed until plainsite.org is shut down and these people get sued for monetary damages.

  • @Shut down plainsite.org Help! How to remove old judgment from Google and PlainSite. Aaron Greenspan is a sociopath and is stalking me.
    An old judgment from 2008 is appearing at the top of page 1 of Google search results for my name. The California judgment is posted on plainsite.org as the top Google search result. However, the judgment was never renewed and is now expired and unenforceable, being older than 10 years, per CA law: http://www.courts.ca.gov/8207.htm

    I do not have to pay his extortion demands.

    Background: The judgment came at the darkest time of my life. I was gravely depressed and grieving multiple deaths of friends and family. Self-employed at that time but my clients were hurting from the 2007 recession and my work assignments dwindled. I was so depressed I became unable to function at the little work I could get. Maxed out my credit card with cash advances, then unable to make payments. Went on disability, and am now on retirement Social Security, which is my sole source of income. Age 67, no employment, no assets, no close kin, below poverty level, on food stamps and other public assistance programs.

    I never responded to any collection efforts, nor to service of papers. I was paralyzed by fear and didn't know what to do or say, so I did nothing at all.

    Best regards,

    The PlainSite Team

    This week my search through online court records shows the original Oct 2008 filing, but there is nothing whatsoever of any renewal filing.

    I am trying to move from my current gov-subsided housing to something a bit better. However, if any prospective landlord googles my name, I won't stand a chance.

    Plainsite doesn't care whether a case is expired or not. As long as it's part of the public record, it's on their site and on Google search results for my name. That result doesn't appear on my name searches via Bing or Yahoo; I haven't tried any other search engines than those three.

    As I mentioned above, I obtained the info on my case by searching the online records, which are given on the website for the superior court of my county.

    I searched for my name... there is only the one case. I searched again for the case no. and got the same result. The judgment was filed in Oct 2008. The last action was in Nov 2008 when the creditor obtained an abstract of the judgment. (These are the same details as posted on plainsite.) The online case record shows no further action, therefore the judgment is expired as of Oct 2018, by Calif. law.

    Plainsite.org Think Computer Foundation doesn't care whether a case is expired or not. As long as it's part of the public record, it's on their site and on Google search results for my name. That result doesn't appear on my name searches via Bing or Yahoo; I haven't tried any other search engines than those three.

    Undergrads silenced by College administrators
    by The Record on September 25, 2003 in News
    BY JON LAMBERSON

    greenspan.jpg

    One of the most important elements of the Law School, according to Dean Kagan’s statement on the Harvard Law School website, is the “rich diversity of people, perspectives, and opinions” that can be found on campus. Law students expect to hear statements that they don’t agree with, both in the classroom and around campus, and we supposedly value the benefits of open and honest discussion.

    While our own school’s commitment to these ideals can be debated, one undergraduate student who tried to create his own forum for an open discussion recently found himself stymied and even threatened by Harvard College administrators and lawyers.

    Aaron Greenspan, a junior at Harvard College, saw a problem. He was stuck in a course that all his classmates agreed was terrible. The class, Economics 1010a, was so bad that the undergraduate paper, The Crimson, had written articles about it and the professor had even been replaced.

    Yet when Greenspan attempted to get signatures on a letter he drafted to the administration calling for changes, he found students reluctant to put their names down on paper. “They were afraid that there would be some sort of reprisals, ” said Greenspan.

    This led to an idea: Greenspan created a website where students could post anonymous comments about professors, classes and just about any other aspect of life at Harvard College. The site would be run by the Student Entrepreneurship Council (SEC), a student group which Greenspan headed.

    Greenspan dubbed the site “CriticalMass, ” after a comment by one Harvard administrator who said that student concerns are only responded to when there is a “critical mass” of complaints.

    Greenspan later expanded his site to include a place where students could sell and exchange textbooks, and also a web-based e-mail client where students could check their e-mail. He named the revamped site “houseSYSTEM, ” and placed the pages on-line in August 2003.

    “I expected some resistance from the house webmasters, ” said Greenspan. After all, his site would directly compete with both the undergraduate house websites, and also with the existing Harvard web-based e-mail client (which one administrator described to Greenspan as “horrible”).

    Harvard cracks down

    What Greenspan didn’t expect was a letter from Harvard College administrators threatening unspecified “disciplinary action” if he did not immediately turn over the names of all the users of his site.

    “The 400 people who signed up to use the site believed their information would be kept anonymous, ” said Greenspan. “I explained to the administration several times that I was not storing any passwords on my site.”

    Greenspan also offered to show the administrators the database that he was using without turning over names. However, once again they demanded that he turn over his entire user list. This time, they even threatened to discipline every student involved in the SEC, whether or not they had anything to do with Greenspan’s website.

    Greenspan, fearing suspension or even expulsion, turned over the names. He also sent an e-mail to the users of his site explaining his decision and apologizing for having to give out their private information. “I received some support, but also a lot of flame mail in response to that, ” said Greenspan.

    After convincing the administration that he was not storing passwords on his site, Greenspan asked if he could put houseSYSTEM back online. Yet administrators again looked for ways to block the site. This time, he received notification that he was infringing on copyright and trademark laws for using the Harvard name and shield without permission.

    Greenspan explained to administrators that the website was run by a valid undergraduate student group, the SEC. He also was careful to give credit to any material on his site that was copyrighted.

    “At one point they told me my copyright message was inadequate because I included the word ‘The’ before ‘President and Fellows of Harvard University, '” exclaimed a frustrated Greenspan, “and if you look at the Harvard website, their copyright statement is exactly the same as mine.”

    Seeking counsel

    Greenspan had to contact private attorneys in order to help him challenge the infringement claims of the University, as the College provided him with no legal counsel.

    “Jay Ellison, the Lowell House Senior Tutor, supposedly served as my conduit to the rest of the administration, ” said Greenspan, but he noted that the arrangement was awkward because Ellison also served as the house disciplinarian and had to enforce the policies handed down by the Office of General Counsel and other administrators.

    “I thought about contacting The Berkman Center [at HLS], ” said Greenspan, “but they had never been responsive in the past so I didn’t think it would be worthwhile.”

    Today Greenspan’s site is finally online, and it has almost 1, 000 users. There is still no e-mail access capability because of administration concerns about passwords, despite the fact that Greenspan turned over the entire database to them. “I also still haven’t heard if they ever deleted the personal information I sent to them, ” said Greenspan. He noted that there has never been any security breach involving his site.

    When asked if this ordeal had made him consider a career in law, Greenspan replied, “I’ve had a lot of people tell me that I should go into law, but I’m not sure I want to.” He then added, “but my Mom is going to help me find some gifts for my lawyers. I really owe them.”

    PayMaxx Closes W-2 Site after Security Hole Found
    February 25, 2005 (PLANSPONSOR.com) - Online payroll service provider PayMaxx closed its automated W-2 site this week after a researcher claimed that two security holes had exposed data on more than 25, 000 people.
    By Fred Schneyer

    Aaron Greenspan, president of Think Computer, asserted in a paper posted on his firm’s Web site that the security problems at PayMaxx allowed all site viewers view the W-2 forms generated for employees of PayMaxx’s clients for the last five years, according to a CNET News.com report.

    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 that his W-2 tax form was available online for download and printing. He said he found the problem when 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.

    According to the CNET News report, Greenspan found that another person’s W-2 was downloaded and readable. The vulnerability 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.

    PayMaxx told CNET that a third-party security company was investigating the allegations. “No system in the world is 100% 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.”

    Greenspan said his investigation also revealed that PayMaxx’s database contained a record for testing 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.

    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.

    In 1970, the Autism Society of America created the first Autism Awareness Month. So, as I write in April 2019, we have had five decades of efforts to increase sensitivity to individuals with this condition — which is actually a constellation of conditions — affecting neural development, communication, social interaction, and behavior. While these annual commemorations may have increased awareness of autism, the extent to which they have enhanced insight into and improved the lives of people with autism is unclear.

    Awareness campaigns may even backfire by creating false impressions. One limitation of disability-specific campaigns such as Autism Awareness Month is that they typically promote experiences of individuals with diseases or disabilities that conform to a preferred pattern. For the individual at the center of attention for one of these human-interest stories, obstacles are faced, struggles ensue, and there is an emotionally satisfying success in the end. Iterations of this narrative arc in relation to autism have undoubtedly engaged some non-disabled people who might otherwise not have paid attention, but they have also tended to obscure many dire realities as well.

    Too many media outlets prefer to present only the stories, even if unrepresentative, that have a relatively happy ending and will be perceived as uplifting by the audience. Meanwhile, the bottom line for our population is the inadequacy and sometimes even cruelty of systems and services nominally in place to assist those with autism, especially adults. True autism awareness requires clarity about areas where progress is desperately needed. Here are some of them.

    Mental and Behavioral Health Care: The first arena of tremendous need is basic behavioral and mental health treatment. In my experience, most physicians specializing in the treatment of autism focus on children and possibly adolescents and do not treat adults. Meanwhile, psychiatrists and perhaps some neurologists who do treat adults with autism tend to focus too narrowly on prescribing medications. Furthermore, there are currently zero drugs that are FDA-approved specifically for the core clinical manifestations of autism. The FDA has approved two drugs for aggression in the context of autism (the antipsychotics risperidone [Risperdal] and aripiprazole [Abilify]). However, they do not necessarily address the defining symptoms associated with autism, or, in some cases, even the symptoms they are supposed to treat.

    The drugs that are employed typically require a laborious and largely empirical process (i.e. trial and error, with emphasis on the error) that can be excruciatingly difficult for the patient and the family as increasing doses are tried until a positive effect can be discerned, preferably in the absence of intolerable side effects. Knowing what effects, either good or bad, are attributable to the new medication is often uncertain and can create additional burdensome appointments with yet more doctors, not to mention stress. Even so, many of these drugs are only modestly effective or are ineffective while the side effects may be barely tolerated or intolerable. Some of these side effects, such as weight gain, dizziness, or heat insensitivity can be quite serious in the full context of family life even if the prescribing physician regards them as minor. Consequently, the current standard of care for adults with autism is embarrassingly inadequate for many patients.

    So have decades of awareness resulted in significantly improved interventions for adults with autism? It seems the answer is no in spite of the sometimes extensive efforts of parents, or other caregivers, to find the necessary care.

    General Medical Care: A second problem is medical services for the endless variety of other ailments experienced by many adults with autism. Some adults with autism, even if highly verbal, may not be able to describe their symptoms in as detailed a manner as their doctors would prefer, resulting in a lower quality of care than might otherwise be the case. In the current time-pressured medical environment, the tendency for some physicians to become impatient with those affected by autism, who may require more time and effort than other patients, can also undermine the quality of care. The establishment of a specialized general medical service for adult patients with autism at the Wexner Medical Center affiliated with Ohio State University is a bright spot but also reflects my strong impression that few family physicians or internists elsewhere are effective in interacting with and treating members of this population.

    A further complication is that individuals with autism often suffer from multiple other complaints affecting the central nervous system or other bodily systems. These other conditions can include, but are not limited to, anxiety, obsessive compulsive disorder, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), epilepsy, gastrointestinal problems, and difficulty sleeping. Treatment for these other conditions or symptoms will frequently require appointments with other specialists. A lack of coordinated care, which is more often than not the case, adds to the burden of parents or other caregivers.

    Another obstacle to appropriate medical care is that when autistic adults live apart from family members, home care providers may be reluctant to take clients to doctor visits for a variety of reasons: a tendency to dismiss the concerns of people with disabilities, a preference for minimizing effort, constraints imposed by having to deal with the needs of multiple clients in group homes, and minimal medical knowledge. A related factor contributing to less than optimal well-being in such residential settings is that the diets of individuals with disabilities may contain too many calories and too few nutrients. Of comparable importance, their levels of physical activity may be less than is necessary for optimal or even decent health.

    With some exceptions, it is hard to see how decades of autism awareness have resulted in improved access to general medical care for adults with autism even when caregivers devote hours to finding the most appropriate physicians.

    Community Services: Adults with autism typically lack the cognitive and adaptive skills to function independently, and require disability programs to provide care, paid or volunteer work, social and recreational opportunities, and community engagement. However, the supply of these programs is not keeping pace with increasing demand. Providers are not paid adequately and many are shutting their doors, while waitlists for these Medicaid-funded programs grow longer in many states. The autism housing crisis is acute across the country, and will only be exacerbated as the parents grow older and too infirm to care for their disabled grown children.

    In many cases, the extent of individual attention required necessitates monthly expenses that are astonishingly high and therefore completely out of reach for the vast majority of families. For example, earlier this year we spoke to an individual with multiple relevant credentials who provides customized in-home services — and charges $250 per hour for her services. More recently, we contacted a residential therapeutic facility in another state to assess its suitability for a family member and learned that the services offered are about $25, 000 per month.

    Furthermore, in spite of stereotypes, many individuals with autism want friends and seek social acceptance and engagement. However, limitations in social skills may cause them to be anxious in social settings and may create situations that make nondisabled people less likely to become friends. One result is that many adults with autism are extremely lonely. I see an epidemic of isolation among young autistic adults, who need to find their micro-communities within their own communities. But such services are in short supply.

    Again, it is difficult to see how decades of autism awareness has produced an adequate community care system for adults disabled by autism. No matter how hard parents search for an appropriate residential arrangement for an affected family member, they cannot find it if it does not exist.

    Employment: For those with sufficient cognitive skills, finding and maintaining employment is challenging. They can run afoul of fellow employees and supervisors because they react too strongly to impolite comments or critical feedback from other employees or from customers or clients. Affected individuals may also fail to abide by what are viewed (at a given workplace) as customary patterns of behavior. One consequence is that adults with autism, even those who are deemed “high functioning” continue to have relatively low employment rates.

    Summing up, in spite of decades of awareness campaigns, necessary services are profoundly inadequate, and I do not see on the horizon solutions in many of areas, be it mental health, general medical care, community services and housing, or employment. Sure, iPads, behavioral therapies, and palliatives described in some books — such as Disney movies, Siri, medical cannabis and road trips — may be helpful at times, but current, stable and long-term options are unsatisfactory for the overwhelming majority of people. Consequently, the efforts of parents, other family members, or unrelated caregivers supporting adults with autism are analogous to Sisyphus* of the ancient Greek myth – metaphorically rolling a boulder up a hill only to have it roll down again endlessly. Awareness is clearly not enough. We need well-conceived action now.

    I agree with what Karen Delaney said and have experienced first hand the lack of training in medical staff. My son needed an EEG to rule out seizures. For many months he's exhibited bizarre and concerning behaviors that have elements of movement disorder, elements of seizure activity but strongly tied with anxiety. His teachers were puzzled and concerned as were we, they had gone on for many months since getting him off Risperdal, and we wanted answers. We live in CT and only minutes away from Yale Children's Hospital. The chief of pediatric neurology was the attending physician. There was even this wonderful autism nurse who visited our room with a whole sensory kit with anything my son could need or want. I thought we were in great hands. My son was anesthetized so they could hook up the EEG leads. I was ordered out of the OR. A short time later I was called down saying he was awake. When I got there, he had managed to rip off all the EEG leads and his IV. The OR nurses who were with him said they could not stop him. I personally think they left him alone to attend other patients but I can't prove that. I was treated very rudely for even asking if we could try again. We were sent back to the recovery room where we started. My son proceeded to get very sick from the anesthesia as it wore off. He hadn't eaten anything since dinner the previous day and it was now 3 pm. There were no apologies, no sympathy from the OR staff. Finally the chief of neurology came to see us. Again, no apologies or sympathy. He treated me with condescension, said basically if he were having a seizure I'd know it. YES! I know what a grand mal seizure looks like, my son used to have them!!! Then he said, "Well, I can put him on an anti-convulsant, see what happens." I was very disappointed. I wanted ANSWERS!!! Not more drugs!!! One of the best pediatric hospitals in the country and they had very little to offer. The autism nurse with the sensory kit is a great first step towards making Yale more autism-friendly, but the same level of compassion and training is needed in the OR. In hindsight I should have insisted on staying by his side the entire time, in future I will!! But staff should be prepared for patients who try to pull off EEG leads, rip out IV's, rip open their surgery stitches, etc. They should be trained on how to re-direct this behavior, or insist that parents of autistic non-verbal kids stay with them the whole time to help the OR staff care for their children. This was a tremendous waste of valuable time, money, and resources and worst of all, my son was cruelly traumatized for nothing and we still don't know if there is seizure activity we need to be concerned about.

    This is hitting home right now and I think the author glazed over one point. Let me back up and give you today's story. Got a call from my son's full time mentor - my son had a meltdown while walking to the car and put his head through the read window of an SUV. Blood everywhere and ambulance called. They were 40 minutes away but the ambulance brought him to my local hospital. I got there easily 25 minutes before them and tried to get them to generate the registration so he wouldn't have to wait or listen to people chatter - no go - that's not how we do it. I tried to speak to a nurse to prep them for what may or may not happen - he's nearly 22 - 285 pounds and 6 foot. "I'll see if they have time" ...they did not. I said he will need to be sedated - he can't just wait here...he will need something. I brought his meds from home - can I give him some? "No, we have a much better pharmacy than you do"... After waiting nearly 2 hours with less than 10 minutes of human interaction my son flew off the stretcher and started to hit me across the head and face...I managed to hit the nurse call button and they ran in and tackled my son - face down (with a bleeding forehead and nose and bruising eyes) and pinned him down... this has killed people because of the inability to breath... then the charge nurse snarled at me that his staff wouldn't have been put at risk for injury if I hadn't questioned his med suggestion that the doctor randomly brought up with no real conviction or information. So now I'm looking at my son - covered in blood with 5 people laying on top of him giving him a shot in the hip and gettting snarled at for questioning something... The shot worked - 6 hours later we were walking out of the ER with my son stitched up... the doctor never came back before she left her shift to check on us. The charge nurse never came back to check on things. One technician showed some compassion - ONE... I asked for paper and a pen to write my son a schedule while he was escalating and they gave him a crayon!!! So an employee's car is broken and we will be paying for that, my son had an ambulance ride, a horrific ER visit and has 5 stitches and multiple new scars. I have such frustration and anger right now. Here's the real kicker to the whole story... I was a supervisory RN at this hospital for 25 years until I retired 16 years ago because of my son's needs. I am not clueless... I know how this should have gone down. I know and I asked... and they were not about to give or bend. There will be some letters and phone calls tomorrow and there had better be some training for some piss poor ER staff that I met today.

    So the point that I think the author may have touched on but not enough is the lack of training in the medical staff generally. Docs unfortunately now have a "hands off" approach and only get dirty when they have to - and it seems the rest of the staff is adopting the same philosophy

    PRESIDENT DREW FAUST’S comments (“Focus on Faust, ” July-August, page 46) regarding the need for a “reassessment of Facebook and other social media” (as the magazine put it) since Mark Zuckerberg’s 2017 Commencement speech are disappointingly lacking in specificity and seem designed to avoid confronting the real issues relating to Facebook. The implication that it was only after the revelation of the inappropriate use of Facebook data by Cambridge Analytica that it was necessary “to ask broader questions…” is not supported by the facts.

    Were Faust and the members of the Corporation and the Board of Overseers unaware of the extremely numerous reports in widely read publications over many years regarding the cavalier attitude toward user privacy of Facebook leadership (e.g.: https://www.wired.com/story/facebook-a-history-of-mark-zuckerberg-apologizing/?mbid=BottomRelatedStories), in conjunction with evidence that the company leadership clearly prioritized growth and profit over user welfare despite protestations to the contrary? Were the leaders of the University also unaware of the repeated instances of Facebook having to “adjust” the numbers and methods for publicly reported advertising metrics (e.g., https://www.forbes.com/sites/greatspeculations/2016/11/17/more-bugs-found-in-facebooks-ad-metrics-to-the-dismay-of-advertisers/#481f0abe2a85)? One might have thought that these widely reported and well-known realities would have weighed heavily against inviting Zuckerberg to deliver a commencement address at an institution that claims to prize, as its highest value, “veritas.”

    A WRITING BY AARON JACOB GREENSPAN OWNER OF plainsite.org

    Dear Ms. Burns,

    I was a friend and colleague of Aaron Swartz, an internet activist who died one year ago on January 11, 2013. One of Aaron’s main interests was open access to public information.

    It has come to my attention that Xerox is responsible, through its ACS division, for several court system web sites, including at least three in California. These sites presently bear extremely restrictive disclaimers prohibiting public use of public information, to the point of sheer absurdity. I’ve written a brief post about the issue, which you can find here:

    http://www.plainsite.org/articles/article.html?id=5

    I realize that this is something that ACS and then Xerox inherited from a string of corporate acquisitions, but I’d appreciate a response nonetheless. I am sure the public would appreciate Xerox acknowledging that it is allowed to use the information it already owns.

    Sincerely,

    Aaron

    Contrarian Compliance – Alternative Views on Compliance Management

    “US Money Transmission Laws Are Worthless and Unconstitutional”
    [Reading Time: 10 minutes]

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

    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.

    Because Aaron provided a lot of links and additional material, I decided to split the interview into three parts:

    – PART ONE: REGULATION AND INNOVATION IN THE UNITED STATES

    – PART TWO: BITCOIN, COMMUNISM AND THE SURVEILLANCE STATE

    – PART THREE: A YOUNG FINTECH ENTERPRENEUR’S DAY OF RECKONING

    Here goes PART ONE. Enjoy and may your thoughts be provoked!

    PART ONE: INNOVATION, REGULATION AND THE FUTURE OF PAYMENTS

    “The vast majority of my competitors operate today without a license in any state, or operated for years without them until I sued them in federal court.”

    Juan: You and many others have argued that a ‘gotcha’ attitude in law-enforcement and irrational regulation are hampering innovation. What would a ‘sane regulatory environment’ look like in your view?

    Aaron: A sane regulatory environment would have at least two fundamental differences relative to the regulatory environment now. The first difference is that it would be managed from Washington, D.C. at the federal level, and not at the state level. The second difference is that it would involve at least some use of automatic, digital regulation mechanisms—not auditors who show up every four years with a pencil and a legal pad to scribble down some notes. In this day and age, the payment system is a collection of Internet-based computer systems, and because of that, it makes no sense to regulate it based upon geographic state boundaries using tools that are fundamentally unable to interface with computers.

    As for the “gotcha” mentality, so far the only company subjected to it appears to have been mine. The vast majority of my competitors operate today without a license in any state, or operated for years without them until I sued them in federal court. So to me the regulatory environment, at least in California, looks more like a libertarian paradise, which is just as bad. Generally, I don’t think regulation is a panacea, and I obviously think the state money transmission statutes are incredibly stupid and harmful. But I understand why consumer protection laws and mechanisms exist (the FDIC model is excellent), and as I’ve told the CEO of at least one well-known Bitcoin company, I really do believe in equal protection under the law. It’s part of our Constitution, and so I expect that if I have to obey the law, so does everyone else.

    “Right now we have a money transmission framework that protects a handful of specific corporate actors”

    Juan: In your public testimonies to the U.S. Senate Banking Committee and Consumer Financial Protection Bureau you talk at length about the problems with money transmission regulation in general.

    Aaron: Well, it’s certainly true that the testimony I submitted to the United States Senate committees that were investigating “virtual currency, ” i.e. Bitcoin, was very long, and the subsequent comment letter I sent to the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) was maybe even longer, but there’s good reason for that. The regulatory system is unbelievably complex to start with, and the resulting problems are correspondingly complex. Every word I wrote is there for a reason. You can find the Senate testimony here, and the CFPB comment from my company, Think Computer Corporation, here. (I would have actually written them both from Think, but I wasn’t sure if companies could actually submit written testimony to Congress; I’ve since learned that they can. Next time!) Since writing both of those, I have learned through public records requests that various bureaucrats in the state regulatory agencies were fairly alarmed to see that I had been allowed to present testimony, and Promontory Financial Group even did an analysis of how much press my testimony had received. I think that tells you something.

    The questions we really need to be asking as an industry and as a country are who do we want to protect, how much, and what might unintended consequences look like? Right now we have a money transmission framework that protects a handful of specific corporate actors: Western Union, MoneyGram, Travelex, American Express, and banks. It protects them in a comprehensive manner: they expend virtually no capital as a fraction of their assets on writing and maintaining laws that are impossible for new competitors to comply with, and in return, they get a monopoly. The unintended consequences are grim: the broken patchwork of financial laws enables a thriving illegal drug trade that has contributed to unprecedented war-like violence in Mexico, and has exacerbated the biases that African-Americans and other minorities caught up in the drug trade already suffer from, especially in cities.

    This looks nothing like a proper regulatory regime, and that is because it is not. It’s economic protectionism run amok. A proper regulatory regime would not protect consumers in name only; it would actually protect consumers in real life. It would do so by providing a backstop for financial fraud and by streamlining detection and enforcement of money laundering violations. There would be few side effects other than encouraging consumers to spread their deposits among multiple institutions to avoid exceeding insurance caps—which anyone who believes in portfolio diversification should support anyway.

    “U.S. money transmitter laws and licenses are worthless and unconstitutional seven different ways”

    Juan: In your list of proposed solutions, you talk about harmonization of money transmission statutes. Why do you think that all the efforts made by, for example, the NMTA (National Money Transmitters Association), and other groups representing other MSBs (e.g., FiSCA), have failed?

    Aaron: I don’t know much about previous efforts to harmonize money transmission laws (MTLs), but my general sense is that the lobbying has been pretty spotty and weak in Washington, nor has there been there a clear enough example until recently of where the regulations have gone wrong. The financial crisis in 2008 also presented financial regulators with multiple, simultaneous ten-alarm fires to put out—which I would argue they only did by smothering them in explosive powder that has yet to ignite—but money transmission problems were just a wisp of smoke by comparison.

    Juan: If MT laws were to be harmonized or simplified, wouldn’t it be unfair to all of the previous companies who have had to invest in complying with the current regime (including, Google, Facebook, Amazon, Square and Paypal)?

    Aaron: It’s kind of difficult to argue that this has ever been about fairness. First of all, the current system is in place only because a bunch of huge financial incumbents asked for it. So it’s clearly not “unfair” for the populace to ask for the system that giant companies rigged to be un-rigged—it merely removes the existing ill-gotten advantage. As for the technology companies that decided to go along for the ride, that was their decision to make. The technology lobby with its billions in combined revenue could have pretty easily rivaled Western Union and MoneyGram if it had decided that was what it wanted to do, but I’m sure meetings were had and decisions were made not to fight that battle. So, if tomorrow the money transmitter laws went away and state licenses were worthless (which, they already are in a sense, because the laws are unconstitutional seven different ways), basically all of these technology companies could just keep doing what they were doing, but with lower costs and streamlined regulations. That seems like a win-win to me for everyone but the Money Services Round Table (Note: The Money Services Round Table is a lobbying group representing the interests of the largest U.S. licensed money transmitters).

    “State money transmission laws place far too much unfettered authority in the hands of unelected bureaucrats.”

    Juan: What are the seven ways in which MTLs are unconstitutional?

    Aaron: The (at least) seven ways money transmission laws are arguably unconstitutional are:

    Pursuant to the dormant commerce clause, Congress cannot delegate its Constitutional power to regulate interstate commerce (money transmission) to the states because doing so violates the Pike test, which is to say that it does more harm than good;
    Money transmission today takes place almost exclusively over the Internet, and according to ALA v. Pataki, the Internet is exclusively within the regulatory domain of the federal government. 18 U.S.C. § 1960 was written in 1992, before the commercial Internet existed. Relatedly, it is often impossible to tell or pinpoint where a mobile payment has geographically taken place, leading to a commerce clause paradox;
    State money transmission laws, and especially California’s, place far too much unfettered authority in the hands of unelected bureaucrats, who can reject an application “for any other reason” according to California’s money transmission statute. See City of Lakewood v. Plain Dealer Publishing.
    Rejection of a money transmission license application in one state starts a domino effect where other states are more likely to reject an applicant who has already been rejected elsewhere, which causes an unreasonable burden on interstate commerce;
    At least one state law, California’s, requires an applicant to apply in writing and pay a non-refundable $5, 000 fee before actually knowing the full tangible net worth requirements to apply, which vary on a case-by-case basis, violating the Due Process clause of the Fourteenth Amendment;
    Some states (again, California) consider their money transmission laws “better” than those of other states, and so even having a license in Alabama may not permit a California company to do business as a money transmitter in Alabama, again leading to a commerce clause paradox;
    State regulators admit that they are biased against certain types of applicants (small businesses or businesses who have not applied nationwide), in violation of the Equal Protection Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment.
    “A sane regulatory environment would be managed at the federal level, and involve the use of automatic, digital regulation mechanisms.”

    Juan: Wow. I have been in the money transmitter industry for almost fifteen years, attended hundreds of conferences and events, and interacted with dozens of regulators and lawyers across the world, and I have never heard any of the above publicly discussed. Never.

    What’s your opinion on New York’s proposed BitLicense?

    Aaron: It’s mostly a distraction. The money transmission laws that were already in place covered Bitcoin as soon as FinCEN said they did in March, 2013. There are a few minor nuances about acceptable securities and anonymity, but really, all of these companies needed licenses before, all of these companies need licenses now, and they can either keep whining about the “BitLicense” requirements or grow up, face the music, and realize that the payment industry is regulated. How it is regulated is a legitimate question. I’m still waiting for any company, Bitcoin-based or otherwise, to realize that and sign their name next to mine as I discuss these issues with legislators.

    Juan: What will the world of payments, finance and money look like in 5 years?

    Aaron: There’s no one comprehensive payment solution because there’s no one way we pay for things—a retail transaction is clearly different from an on-line transaction in a lot of ways. But I do think retail transactions will start to look a lot more like what I envisioned with FaceCash, and I think on-line transactions will start to move away from cards and bank accounts and start looking a lot more like PayPal. Whether or not those are the brand names that stick in five years, who knows, but the models clearly work. As for Bitcoin, I think of Bitcoin enthusiasts kind of the way I think of guys I see on the beach with metal detectors. There’s a small chance you’ll get rich (extremely small now that the initial hype has died down), but otherwise, it just looks kind of weird.

    Juan: We can’t talk about MSBs without talking about the bank “discontinuance” problem, which has been going on for over a decade, and has become a global phenomenon and is now affecting Bitcoin companies. Do you see a solution to this big problem?

    Aaron: Barring some sort of legislative mandate that requires banks to follow strict criteria for when it’s okay to grant an MSB account and when it’s not, I don’t really see a solution. Right now it’s all about connections. That doesn’t seem fair or right. On the other hand, I think the banks are correct to worry about how their accounts are being used, and I can certainly give several examples of banks that are being far too loose with their compliance regimens.

    Stand by for PARTS TWO and THREE, coming up next and the following week, respectively.

    Contrarian Compliance – Alternative Views on Compliance Management

    “Bitcoiners Are Repeating Forgotten History, and Are Accordingly Doomed”
    [Reading Time: 8 minutes]

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

    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 transmission laws and identifies, with uncommon clarity and depth, what he believes to be wrong with them.

    Read on for Aaron’s point of view on Bitcoin, preceded by the intro to the first post for the benefit of those who haven’t read it, yet.

    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.

    Here goes PART TWO, and please don’t shoot the messenger (me)!

    PART TWO: BITCOIN, COMMUNISM AND THE SURVEILLANCE STATE

    “Bitcoin shares its egalitarian appeal with Communism, and like it, could fail colossally for reasons not readily apparent on the original blueprints.”

    Juan: You’ve called yourself a Bitcoin “skeptic.” Why? Have your thoughts about it changed?

    Aaron: My thoughts haven’t really changed since I wrote about it in December, 2013. I called it Fool’s Gold then. I don’t think I’ve been proven wrong really, though I’ll admit that the valuation has stayed fairly high. It’s certainly not catching on in the mainstream, though, and most of the media attention has come from establishments that have ties to the venture capitalists most heavily invested in Bitcoin startups, which makes me quite skeptical. For example, Businessweek is owned by Bloomberg LP, which is an investor in Andreessen Horowitz, which funds Coinbase, Ripple, and Dwolla (which has since departed the Bitcoin sphere due to regulatory scrutiny), among others. Some of their reporting has been good, but I think it would be a stretch to call it objective. Bitcoin is also an enormous consumer of electricity. Whether that means it’s a “waste” or not will depend on whether it ever really catches on, I suppose. I would personally put the electricity use in the massive waste column.

    “Bitcoin is over-hyped and fundamentally unwieldy.”

    Juan: How about Bitcoin with a capital B, i.e., the technology, the underlying software protocol?

    Aaron: I think it’s overhyped and fundamentally unwieldy. Everyone ignores the 51% problem. It’s a huge problem. I guarantee that the Chinese and/or Russian governments don’t ignore that problem. I think they find it quite interesting. I also think that once you get past the interesting conceptual part of Bitcoin, the protocol fails to achieve its goals in a practical sense.

    Communism in the early twentieth century had a similar appeal: it was a new, untested, and relatively innovative way to organize a society. It promised equality and progress, free of capitalism’s many drawbacks. It was also a colossal failure for reasons that weren’t readily apparent from merely reading the original blueprints. Bitcoin shares that egalitarian appeal with communism, and its advocates are also often skeptics of traditional capitalism. It is worth noting that I, too, am disillusioned with capitalism in a variety of ways, even as the CEO of a corporation, and so one might expect me to be an advocate of Bitcoin. Yet I see drawbacks in Bitcoin similar to those that many Americans started to notice in Soviet-style communism early on.

    For example, everyone in Soviet Russia was a “comrade, ” just as everyone using Bitcoin is merely identifiable as a hashed address. Everyone in Soviet Russia could supposedly operate freely according to their needs, and free of the greed of their capitalist oppressors, while everyone using Bitcoin can send and receive payments or data according to their needs, free of the greed of their capitalist oppressors (e.g. banks adding substantial transaction costs). Everyone in Soviet Russia could supposedly benefit from the transparency that so naturally comes with equality, while everyone using Bitcoin can view and parse the entire blockchain if they so desire, unlike traditional closed ledgers.

    “I guarantee that the Chinese and/or Russian governments don’t ignore Bitcoin’s 51% problem. I think they find it quite interesting.”

    Yet what happened in each case? Some comrades became more important than others. Some became vastly more important—Politburo members, for example—and wealthier, and more powerful. The Soviet anti-capitalist government apparatus began to take on an even more sinister role in daily life than many capitalist governments did. The KGB twisted “transparency” into an unthinkably large spying organization that in some way or another actually employed the majority of Soviet citizens at one time or another.

    In the Bitcoin world, we already see some players becoming more important than others. While the point of the currency is nominally to disintermediate financial institutions, companies like Coinbase and Circle assert their crucial nature as hubs of commerce, also known as financial institutions. They charge fees accordingly, suggesting that Bitcoin cannot really function as purely as its advocates suggest—just as happened in the Soviet Union. Bitcoin’s sinister side was highlighted early on with the Silk Road arrests, not to mention Mt. Gox’s failure, Coinlab’s (largely ignored) fraudulent bankruptcy filing, and Charlie Shrem’s drug-related scandal. Certain early and/or core programmers clearly have disproportionately enormous financial and persuasive influence. And the blockchain can quite conceivably be used to spy on the financial lives of others with a little bit of detective work, as many academic papers have pointed out, making it useless for most people.

    It took the USSR almost a century to fail. Given that Bitcoin moves at a considerably faster pace, I’d expect it to fizzle and die from similar causes within a decade. Meanwhile, Bitcoin advocates would do well to read George Orwell’s Animal Farm.

    Our payment network is far from perfect, which is why I’m in the space at all. Bitcoin solves almost none of the problems with it, though, and as they say, those who forget the past are doomed to repeat it.

    “I’d expect Bitcoin to fizzle and die from causes similar to those of communism’s demise within a decade.”

    Juan: If Bitcoin is doomed to fail, what could be a better alternative to what exists today? What problems do you see in payments, money and finance that need addressing?

    Aaron: If you mean a better alternative to Bitcoin, that depends on what you think the point of Bitcoin is. I personally think that most Bitcoin users believe the point is avoidance of government oversight, for reasons both legitimate and not. Along those lines, I don’t think there’s an actual need for Bitcoin in the United States—even if you’re not a fan of the modern-day NSA, using Bitcoin won’t help you—though in countries with truly oppressive governments (North Korea, Iran, certain Arab states, etc.) there will always be a need for economic systems that are free of government control. Typically that means barter, though, or the use of some kind of scrip, and I don’t really see a problem with that. Digital, anonymized barter is overkill and frankly pointless in a world where the dollar is strong. My personal view, perhaps informed by my political beliefs, is that the goal of government critics shouldn’t be long-term government avoidance in financial systems, it should be the building of government and financial systems that actually work and respect civil liberties. Some small, cynical fraction of the population will always insist that such systems are impossible, definitionally or for other reasons. I disagree. It is quite possible with appropriate legislation and regulation.

    If you mean an alternative to standard currencies and payment systems that exist today, I think there’s a great need for a better payment infrastructure. I’m working on that myself, so you’ll see the answer to this part of the question in my work, I hope. FaceCash is part of that. Still, if someone wants to build a superior kind of virtual currency just for kicks, I’d be all in favor of one that treats the concept of energy conservation as a scarce resource. The more energy you don’t use according to your utility bill, the more currency you get.

    “The goal of government critics shouldn’t be long-term government avoidance in financial systems, it should be the building of government and financial systems that actually work and respect civil liberties.”

    Juan: Now that Bitcoin allows for a payment instruction to travel independently of our identity, how will identity systems need to evolve in order to meet regulatory expectations, either for AML or consumer protection?

    Aaron: I think it’s almost a misnomer to speak of “identity systems” as if they’re a real thing—our digital identities are essentially coincidentally-placed pieces of information distributed across hundreds of different databases (and occasionally text files) in inconsistent formats. I’d personally like to see some standardization at the DMV level in the different states at the very least, not to mention Secretaries of State who manage corporate records. But that’s all independent of Bitcoin and I’m not sure they’ll actually affect each other that much. It’s easier to just encourage people to use mainstream payment systems, since that’s what people want to do anyway.

    Stand by for PART THREE: A YOUNG FINTECH ENTERPRENEUR’S DAY OF RECKONING, probably the most controversial of all, coming up next week.

    Decentralized systems may the future for everything. The potential implications of the development of distributed consensus technologies is revolutionary.

    Bitcoin is an open source peer to peer decentralized digital currency. There is no possible fraud, since is cryptographically secured by a distributed global mathematical algorithm and public decentralized open source ledger, a revolutionary disruptive technology called ‘Blockchain’.

    This could be the future of money for everything, from donations, micropayments, money transfers, online shopping and bill payments, etc.

    Empowering and welcoming to the game to billions of unbanked people. And the blockchain peer-to-peer open source decentralized secure technology will be used for many more applications, like escrow, contracts, voting, global ledger, etc.

    Please don’t be like the ones that were dismissing the internet not long ago as a “den of pedophiles, drug dealers and terrorists”. The blockchain is the biggest thing since the internet and will benefit also the billions of under and un-banked people.

    Transfer money anywhere, safely, no fees, no middlemen, no charge-backs for merchants and no fraud.
    These are just physical businesses accepting bitcoin, with tens of thousands more online:

    Note: Bitcoin yearly gains so far since creation:

    2009 +4, 867%

    2010 +387%

    2011 +1, 320%

    2012 +170%

    2013 +5, 317%

    2014 +????%

    Aaron raises a series of points. Bitcoin is over hyped, Bitcoin has goals that are confused, and Bitcoin’s vaulted equality is really a form of financial communism, where some are more equal than others. Bitcoin “suffers” a 51 percent flaw, and is nothing technically special. Oh, and (like Paul Krugman) Bitcoin uses too much electricity.

    Bitcoin may or may not be over hyped. There are believers, and there are big detractors. Pointing out one or two believers doesn’t wash away all the many detractors in the media.

    Bitcoin is an open source program that keeps score between “players” world wide. That is the goal, and it is working. Nobody gets Bitcoin for free… You have to buy it, or mine it, or find someone willing to sacrifice to give it to you. Its design is clear, and working.

    Is Bitcoin the modern day communism? No. Do early investors have more than the rest? Well, yeah. Do companies that provide services for Bitcoin users charge for those services? Well yeah. But all of that is expected and as designed. There is no “Masters” in the system that get to scrape off rewards for simply being on the top calling the shots. Only those working (i.e. providing servcies) get to charge a fee. And if I don’t want to use Coinbase or Circle? Well, I can still accept and send Bitcoin quite fine without them, thank you.

    Lastly the “electricity” argument. Power use of computers is falling via Moore’s Law even still. While power is an issue, have you ever seen a armored truck drive up to an ATM to stock it with paper? Do you think that monster is some kind of green solution for paper distribution? Hogwash. The power costs of driving the current financial and banking system (at 8 percent of GDP) is MASSIVE. Bitcoin has no hope of burning that much fuel, not even in its most successful dreams.

    Sick attempt by Aaron Jacob Greenspan, the owner of the website plainsite.org to compile data from government websites and reproduce for their own personal gain. Court records are sensitive information and Aaron Greenspan's website not only publicizes them far beyond the need of any legal community. Its just profiteering off people's private lives.

    Ruining my life because of the popularity of it on google and the legal documents being exposed by this site. Simply unethical and wrong the company should be ashamed of themselves. How does this guy Aaron Greenspan sleep at night?

    He refuses to remove information even though it is personal, ruining my job/life/career options. They should be sued for inflicting emotional trauma on so many people and blatently refusing to remove information in spite of it's impact.

    Aaron's Greenspan's parents Neil S Greenspan and Judith Keene Greenspan are directly involved with this fraudulent 501c and having this vicious monetized website plainsite.org. Neil S Greenspan works at Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland, Ohio.

    This out of control nut Aaron Greenspan needs to be arrested and put away and never be allowed to go near a computer ever again and most definitely not go near the public's private information for his greedy profit.

    Nobody would ever hire an insane individual like Aaron Greenspan so his parents set this nut up with his little tool called plains tie.org to make easy money and destroy the careers and reputation of thousands of Americans. Aaron Greenspan thinks what he is doing is real funny and thinks he can just do whatever he wants, as he goes around the web threatening people, defaming people, harassing people, stalking people and just behaving like a looney toon.

    Aaron Jacob Greenspan aka Aaron Greenspan is the founder of Think Computer Foundation, which manages Plain Site (plainsite.org). Aaaron's website states that he has registered Plain Site, a purported public access function to court websites, as a 501(c)(3) charity in line with IRS regulations.

    The basis for the website came from Aaron's own interest and experience with technology and the law. Aaaron claimed that the purpose of Think Computer Foundation was to help children through technology. Yet, later this became a personal piggy bank for him to fund his numerous lawsuits. In the past, he has claimed he was defamed because he was left out of book and movie deals due to defamation by omission. Each of his lawsuits were dismissed and he was hit with a motion for sanctions at each step.

    The case is:

    Greenspan v. Random House, et al., Case No. 1:11-CV-12000-RBC (District of Massachusetts) (Greenspan's lawsuit is dismissed and appeal is denied and supreme court review was denied)

    Far from helping children, which is nothing more than a cover, Think Computer Foundation and Plain Site have morphed into a personal piggy bank for Aaron Greenspan to fund his own speech. In sum and substance, Think Computer Foundation, Plain Site, and Aaron Greenspan are alter egos of each other. They do not exist separately. They do not have an independent board. They do not have separate auditors, attorneys etc. Instead, Aaaron uses these companies and foundations to raise fraudulent donations from donors, of which I am one, and to efficiently evade taxes.

    Aaron has also active sued the US Court System, on behalf of Think Computer Foundation, attempting to act pro se. However, his suit was struck out because under long standing precedent, a corporation cannot be represented by an unlicensed attorney. Aaron is not a licensed attorney. He is also a college drop out. In sum and substance, he over promises and under delivers and what you are left with is feeling cheated and feeling like you have funded a conspiracy theorist. It is truly unfortunate because here is a guy with so much promise if he could just be honest.

    The case is:

    Aaron Greenspan, Think Computer Foundation v. Administrative Office of the US Courts, Case No. 5:2014-CV-2396 JTM

    (Case Dismissed, Appeal Denied)

    The Fraud and IRS Problem with Plain Site and Think Computer Foundation:

    Aaron has collectved donations from his friends and colleagues, myself included in the amount of $100, 000, and to date we have not seen a single dime used in the manner described to us when he requested the donation. When I personally asked for my donation back, he pointed that he controls Think Computer Foundation and can personally use the money as he sees fit. I am in the process of filing suit for fraud and conversion in state court and was wondering if anyone else has had this problem with either Aaaron Greenspan or any of his alter egos.

    But let me back up a bit. What was described to us as a part of Think Computer Foundation and later Plain Site? Think Computer Foundation was purportedly to help needy kids through technology. But needy kids don't really need access to court records do they? No, they dont. So Think Computer Foundation later became synonymous with Plain Site, which is an alternative to the publicly funded PACER court system access to documents. So, instead of helping needy children, Aaron now has a personal site masquerading as a court access website and Aaron, and only Aaron, gets to pick what or which documents are uploaded and available on Plainsite.

    We were under the impression that this was a reputable guy, that he was also independently wealthy and, thus, our donations would go to a good cause: public access to a court system. Unfortunately, it is hard to tell, which one, if any, of Aaron's claims are true. Each time his company has a problem, he attempts to act ike a lawyer or change the rules so that they don't apply to him. Worse, the Plain Site website has become nothing more than a trolling adventure for Aaron. Every time there is a new news story that details someone's misfortune, he uploads their docket on to the website and publicly shames them both online and through his tweets. While public dissemination of information is certainly a goal worthy of support -- and that is why I and others have contributed to his foundation in the past. However, using the foundation, plain site and related twitter accounts as a trolling feature to publicly shame and defame individuals is not what his donors signed up for. It is also completely against the rules of a purported IRS 501(c)(3) foundation. Tax free entities are not meant to be used as personal media outlets for trolling purposes.

    Aaron has committed a fraud by taking money, services and equipment from his donors to perpetuate a continuing personal website masquerading as a charity.

    The Fraud Problem with Aaron Greenspan and Coinbase, Inc.

    Now, what comes next? Aaron applies for a license to issue digital currency in Florida. Website is here:

    archive.org/details/coinbasefloridamtl

    It gets even more interesting:

    Aaron was charged in connection with a criminal complaint for False Claims Violations and Fraud in United States v. Yurygrenadyor, Case No. 09-CV-7891, although the charges were dismissed.

    None of this information has ever been disclosed to his donors and perhaps his investors. He is a conman with a slick sales pitch. He wants to help people help others, especially the needy, through technology. But its all lies. He is an abrasive, ill-tempered man with poor business judgment and completely lacking in ethics.

    When I met Aaron I thought he was out to change the world. He was idenpendently wealthy. He wanted others to help him through his foundation change the world through technology. But he will talk to you until your check clears. The moment it does, all promises are off. What are you are actually funding is Aaron Greenspan and no one else. And his foundation is nothing more than a sham and he is likely to lose his 501(c)(3) certification. I have sent in an email to the IRS through their reporting service. I have filed suit in state court to get return of my money and I am wondering if Aaron has hit other people up for donations to his foundation? Did he disclose how many times he has been sued or sued himself? Did he disclose to you his selection process of what gets included and what does in Plain Site and how he sets up pages to defame people? Is anyone else owed money? Did you guys know that you are funding Aaron Greenspan's endless series of frivolous lawsuits? His defamation campaigns? His advertisements? Please report it here.

    Aaron Greenspan and his parents Neil S Greenspan and Judith Keene Greenspan need to be locked up on a closed ward for the protection of Americans. The public needs to file IRS 501c Referral forms against these three individuals and send them to the IRS in Dallas, Texas. The public can find these IRS 501c Referral Forms online and then just mail them off. Also the public needs to contact the FBI and the local Law Enforcement to have these individuals brought to justice for a wide array of crimes, such as Threats, Stalking, Harassment, Bullying, Defamation, Loss of Employment & Reputation, altering copyright material by copying and pasting documents together, in order to threaten and harass the public when they are outed as a criminal organization, setting up third party websites to threaten and stalk individuals, committing tax evasion and fraud against the US Government, hacking in to State and Federal Databases and then posting these documents on the web and the list goes on and one. These three individuals are CRIMINALS. They are so crazy that they think that they can commit crimes against the public and they do not have to be accountable to the Justice System in the USA. We hope that Aaron Greenspan and his parents have enough assets, in order to pay large amounts of money for the Class Action Lawsuit that he will be receiving. Aaron Greenspan will not be able to do this defense Pro-Se because his head will be spinning from so many judicial documents naming him as the DEFENDANT.

    Apparently this Neil S Greenspan is the mastermind behind this Tax Evasion and Tax Fraud Schemes that he set up for his son Aaron Greenspan under Think Computer Corporation and Think Computer Foundation now located in Delaware and they own and run monetized websites such as leagle.com and plainsite.org.

    We cannot believe that Neil S Greenspan works as a Professor at Case Western University in Cleveland, Ohio and at the same time Neil S Greenspan, his son Aaron Greenspan and his wife Judith Greenspan have all together concocted a 501c non-profit tax evasion and tax fraud scheme called Think Computer Corporation and Think Computer Foundations, that they have transferred from the State of Ohio to the State of Delaware, so that they can make easy money, while at the same time they are destroying the careers and reputations of many Americans with their vicious monetized websites called leagle.com and plainsite.org. They have many other monetized websites and Aaron Greenspan churns out vicious monetized websites like there is no tomorrow.

    http://www.docbios.com/doc/clinical-pathologylaboratory-medicine/neil-s-greenspan-cleveland-oh-1386663938

    We had asked Aaron Greenspan to remove one URL and instead of answering our email, he turned around and posted 5 more URL's, in which he indulges himself by going in to the Federal database Pacer and selectively downloads people's legal case information. Then Aaron Greenspan uploaded these personal legal documents on to one of his monetized websites either leagle.com or plainsite.org. On plainsite.org, Aaron Greenspan then leaves open the legal documents that are the most negative and shameful, so that the person who he is doing this to intentionally consequently loses his career and reputation. Aaron Greenspan, his father Neil S Greenspan and mother Judith Greenspan in the meantime are laughing all the way to the Bank, while so many people are losing their careers and reputations with their vicious online behaviors towards the public. The Federal database Pacer does not upload people's personal legal documents on to the web but Aaron Greenspan and his father Neil S Greenspan do this completely intentionally, so that they can get the most attention and traffic to their various monetized websites, so they basically can make more easy money. You see with these unethical and immoral individuals who only care about themselves and nobody else, its all about the MONEY.

    Neil S Greenspan had this entire 501c non-profit transferred over to the State of Delaware so in this manner they can hide their identities and do not have to disclose all the vicious monetized websites that they own and run. There are also other companies set up in Delaware such as Thinkling and more.

    If one filed complaints against Aaron Greenspan and his father Neil S Greenspan who is the mastermind behind this entire 501c tax evasion and tax fraud scheme, they then retaliate against people by uploading more documents on the web and by committing perjury using the court system to try and shut people up from outing their dirty deeds of destroying people's careers and reputations with their vicious monetized websites, just so they can make some easy MONEY.

    Its just incredible that Neil S Greenspan pretends to be this squeaky clean Professor at Case Western University by day and by night he does vicious things to lots of Americans online with his monetized websites leagle.com and plainsite.org.

    Neil S Greenspan and Aaron Greenspan know how to play the victim roles when they in fact are the perpetrators and instigators of hurting lots of Americans with their monetized websites leagle.com and plainsite.org.
    Also, when convenient they use their things to try and give themselves more credibility like Aaron Greenspan when convenient uses his Harvard email address to try and make himself look like someone who can do no wrong, when in fact Aaron Greenspan is doing lots of things wrong to lots of Americans, such as Hacking in to State and Federal databases and unlocking Sealed cases, that he uploads on to plaisnite.org, Hacks in to people's emails, creates fake websites to harass, stalk, emotionally terrorize, shame, defame and bully people online, as he only wants to get his way with everything and everybody and anyone who outs this Sociopath will then be harassed, stalked, emotionally terrorized, shamed, defamed and bullied online. Aaron Greenspan's father Neil S Greenspan fully enables his son Aaron Jacob Greenspan to continue to do these evil things to the American public, just so they can make some more easy MONEY.
    All they want is more MONEY. They don't care about your careers and reputations. That's why its so incredible that Neil S Greenspan is a Professor at Case Western University in Cleveland, Ohio, while pretending to help people, then has this vicious 501c non-profit tax evasion and tax fraud entity called Think Computer Corporation and Think Computer Foundation, that he in fact thought up for his son Aaron Jacob Greenspan so they could defraud the IRS and US Government and have monetized websites such as leagle.com and plainsite.org under their fraudulent 501c non-profit entities Think Computer Corporation and Think Computer Foundation.

    The public can go to the following site in Ohio, in order to see the entire 60 pages of this entire 501c tax fraud and tax evasion set up by Neil S Greenspan:

    Ohio Secretary of State Business Search
    https://businesssearch.sos.state.oh.us/
    Jon Husted & the Office | Elections & Voting | Campaign Finance | Legislation & Ballot Issues | Businesses | Records | Media Center | Publications. Business Service. General Information, Business Search, Trade Mark / Service Mark Search · Prepayment Accounts · Business Report Download · Help. Business Search ...

    If the URL link is down and not working properly, then simply contact the Ohio Secretary of State and see how to get these 60 pages of documents about Neil S Greenspan, Judith Greenspan and Aaron Greenspan's 501c tax evasion and tax fraud operation. These individuals are making lots of money off the backs of hard working men and women in the USA, while at the same time pretending to be some sort of do-gooders. The reality is that these individuals are completely self centered and think that they can hurt and do to people whatever they feel like it, while they are making more MONEY.

    Aaron Greenspan goes and buys up lots of Trademark names from the United States Patent and Trademark Office and then he hoards them until a new start-up company that actually want to produce something in America or overseas comes along and has to be held hostage to Aaron Greenspan's greed when they find out that the Trademark name that they are seeking is in the greedy hands of Aaron Greenspan, who then blackmails and extorts the most amount of money he can from the new start-up company before he releases the Trademark name to them. Aaron Greenspan's father Neil S Greenspan taught his son how to do all these dirty things, in order to make more MONEY.

    We had simply asked to be left alone and to have these individuals remove the URL they posted that resulted in a job loss. Though, instead of being nice about it, Aaron Greenspan turned around and uploaded 5 more URL's on to the web, which has completely screwed over the career and reputation of our relative. Everything that Neil S Greenspan and Aaron Greenspan is cold and calculating, so that they can make some more MONEY. People mean nothing to Neil S Greenspan, Judith Greenspan and Aaron Greenspan to them people are just a means and tool to make some more MONEY and they will throw anyone under the bus to make some more MONEY.

    We have filed complaints against Aaron Jacob Greenspan with the following State and Federal Law Enforcement Agencies:
    California Attorney General Office
    eCrimes Unit California
    FBI IC3
    IRS Referral Forms 13909 for tax evasion and tax fraud
    We just found out that leagle.com belongs to Neil S Greenspan and Aaron Greenspan and had sent a complaint to the Arkansas Attorney General Office before but these individuals have leagle.com under a fake name called Donald Johnson and a fake address in Little Rock, Arkansas. Neil S Greenspan and Aaron Greenspan are using a Representative in Little Rock, Arkansas so that they can hide their identities from the public, that in fact Neil S Greenspan and Aaron Greenspan are real and true owners of this vicious monetized websites called leagle.com. They have done a really good job of hiding their identities from the public with their multiple vicious monetize websites.
    We have called the FBI many times about Aaron Jacob Greenspan.
    We have called the District Attorneys Office many times about Aaron Jacob Greenspan
    We have made many calls to the IRS about Aaron Jacob Greenspan and his father Neil S Greenspan and have sent in the evidence of all the tax evasion and tax frauds that they are committing against the IRS, US Government and the American public.
    We have made repeated calls to the Local Police about Aaron Jacob Greenspan
    We have evidence that Aaron Jacob Greenspan has hacked in to the Servers of Media companies in the EU and we have filed multiple complaints with Interpol and that countries Data Protection Enforcement Office and have sent all the details of the Hacking by Aaron Jacob Greenspan along with all the fraudulent 501c tax evasion and tax fraud scheme business documents so that Interpol knows who they are dealing with here, as there is nothing innocent about Neil S Greenspan, Judith Keene Greenspan and Aaron Jacob Greenspan, they have together conspired to commit tax evasion and tax fraud, so that they can simply help themselves only to some easy money at the expense of people having to lose their careers and reputations, just so they can make some easy MONEY. What these individuals are doing to the American public is complete disgrace and it is not only unethical and immoral, it is criminal.

    We are also in the proces of filing a Class Action Lawsuit against these individuals for being responsible for people having lost their careers and reputations, just so they can make some easy MONEY. Apparently with these individuals they don't care about anyone having to get up every day to go to work, or maintaining their reputations, as long as they just keep making some easy MONEY at the expense of other people losing there livelihoods.

    Aaron Greenspan is also altering the URL headers and changing them to "archive", as he removes the original URL that a website uses and then changed the URL header to "archive", in order to retaliate against anyone who outs his criminal behaviors.

    Aaron Jacob Greenspan is now in the sights of Interpol in the EU and EU's Data Protection Enforcement Agencies, as he has Hacked in to Meida Servers in Spain and has downloaded pictures and copyright material, that he then copies and pastes together to harass, stalk, emotionally terrorize, shame, defame and do lots of online bullying

    Just about everything that Aaron Jacob Greenspan is doing to people online with his vicious monetized websites leagle.com and plaiinsite.org and illegally Hacking in to Servers of various companies so that he can collect more data on the public is a serious crime I the EU and he would have already been arrested and charged with serious Felonies for all his computer and hacking crimes. Not to mention using his computer and hacking skills just to harass, stalk, emotionally terrorize, shame, defame and do lots of online bullying and all of his tax evasion and tax fraud schemes that his father Neil S Greenspan initiated would result in him losing his University job and being brought to justice for serious crimes against the public.

    Aaron Jacob Greenspan has been harassing, stalking emotionally terrorizing, shaming, defaming and doing lots of online bullying for over a year now with his monetized websites leagle.com and plainsite.org. Now Aaron Jacob Greenspan has created more menacing monetized websites to do his harassing and stalking: casemine.com; open corporates.com; lava map.com; openjurist.org; resource.org; judicial view.com; 258162.net; kenyasafari.info; lovedoc.org; freecourtcase.com; reddi.com; groups.google.com/forum where Aaron Greenspan is Hacking in to Servers in the EU and copying and pasting Copyright materials and downloading pictures to relentlessly harass and stalk myself and my family because we have filed IRS Form 13909 complaints against him and the IRS is investigating Aaron Greenspan's ongoing Tax Evasion and Tax Frauds schemes that his father Neil S Greenspan initiated for his son Aaron Greenspan. Aaron Greenspan is also altering the URL headers of other website owners, so that the information will not come off the web and so that Aaron Greenspan can himself control, as he is a "Control Freak", the narrative and continue to destroy a people's careers and reputations, by using his computer and hacking skills.

    Aaron Greenspan is Hacking in to State and Federal databases, such as Pacer and opening up Sealed cases with lots of non-public documents and then uploading these Sealed documents on to his vicious monetized websites such as leagle.com and plainsite.org.

    We have filed complaints against Aaron Jacob Greenspan with the following Law Enforcement Agencies and anyone who has been harassed, stalked, emotionally terrorized, shamed, defamed or experienced any online bullying by this Sociopath Aaron Greenspan need to file Civil and Criminal Complaints with the following Law Enforcement Agencies:

    File a report with your local police
    File for a Harassment and Restraining Order with your local Court
    File FBI IC3 "Internet Criminal Division" Complaints. This way you will have a long paper trail of complaints agains Aaron Greenspan
    File IRS Referral Forms13909 that can be downloaded from online and the address to send it to is on the form. Send all documented evidence of Harassment and Stalking as well. This IRS Referral Form 13909 is to be done because Aaron Greenspan is committing Tax Evasion and Tax Fraud by using his Think Computer Corporation and Think Computer Foundation, as a cover to put his monetized websites such as leagle.com and plainsite.org under, where he pretends they are 501c non-profit websites and is asking the public for monetary donations, while at the same time he is accepting all kinds of private advertising and even monetary subscriptions for this fraud.
    File California Attorney General Complaints
    File Delaware Attorney General Complaints. Its here in Delaware where Aaron Greenspan and his father Neil S Greenspan have transferred their fraudulent 501c non-profit to, so in this way they do not have to disclose yearly earning reports and can try and hide their identity from many of their vicious monetized websites, such as leagle.com and others.
    File complaints with the FCC "Federal Communications Commission"
    File complaints with the FTC "Federal Trade Commission"
    File complaints with your State Senators and the Senators on the Judiciary Committee, such as Diane Feinstein and Ted Cruz
    File Defamation complaints
    File complaints with Interpol and EU's Data Protection Enforcement Agencies
    File complaints with your local FBI office
    File complaints with the California eCrimes Unit
    File complaints with your local District Attorney's Office and the District Attorney that oversees the area where Aaron Greenspan lives

    The public does need to take this from Aaron Jacob Greenspan and if he is harassing, stalking, emotionally terrorizing, shaming, defaming you in any way and/or is unlawfully contacting your employer, friends, family, neighbors, using his computer and hacking skills to hack your emails, computer or gain any information on you unlawfully, the do not hesitate to move forward immediately with complaints against Aaron Jacob Greenspan.

    Now Aaron Jacob Greenspan appears to be a pretty good actor and may play the victim role but you know that he is the perpetrator and the harasser and stalker, so move forward and file the complaints necessary to put a stop to this Sociopath from ruining your careers and reputations.

  • Aaron Jacob Greenspan should be placed in a Mental Institution for people who suffer Psychotic and Sociopathic behaviors towards the public. Aaron Jacob Greenspan is a nuisance and threat towards the public with his many monetized websites where he uploads people's legal documents for his enjoyment, profit and intentionally ruins people's reputations.

    Aaron. Jacob Greenspan's father Dr. Neil S Greenspan is the responsible individual for setting this entire fraudulent tax evasion scheme up with Think Computer Corporation and Think Computer Foundation under the guise of "helping the children" but they were set up to help Dr. Neil S Greenspan's children. These individuals have many monetized websites that work with private advertisers when it comes to just some of their monetized website leagle.com in which these individuals use an Agent for this site to hide their identities and then we have this other vicious monetized website plainsite.org under the guise to help people find legal documents, which is. a complete lie. The only purpose of leagle.com and plainsite.org is for Aaron Jacob Greenspan and his father Neil S Greenspan is to make easy money by effectively throwing people's legal documents online for their profit and enjoyment. These individuals are extremely sneaky people.

    These individuals retaliate against people who expose their criminal behaviors, tax frauds and scams by committing perjury, filing false complaints and wasting tax payer money by using and abusing our system to retaliate against people. These are the real criminals who pretend to be some sort of "do-gooders".

    Dr. Neil S Greenspan is bad for the reputation of Case Western Reserve University with all his tax fraud schemes that he has created and where he is the Vice President and Treasurer of Think Computer Corporation, Think Computer Foundation and Thinklink, which were originally based out of Cleveland, Ohio and now are based out of the State of Delaware so these individuals do not have to do any yearly earnings reports, as they are making money in a fraudulent manner under their fraudulent 501(c)3.

    I'm representing the company pro se for now in the lawsuit against the State of California. Since that's not typically allowed, I've filed a motion for an exemption from Local Rule 3-9(b), which you can read at http://s.facecash.com/legal/2011... if you're into that sort of thing.

    Otherwise, Think has employed a variety of law firms over the years. My experience with those law firms is the primary reason why I avoid using law firms whenever possible now.

    Comments:
    I represent Think Computer Corporation, a Silicon Valley startup that is developing a mobile payment system called FaceCash (http:/ /ww w. facecash.com). One of the many benefits of the product we are developing is a unique ability to undercut traditional interchange fees, because with FaceCash we essentially control the entire payment process from end to end. It is an unfortunate reality that the large banks that dominate the plastic payment card industry have abused their position for some time now, and so merchants of all sizes are faced with a plethora of confusing and expensive fees that cut into their profits. While the market would usually solve such a problem on its own through competition, these same banks have succeeded at erecting significant anti-competitive barriers to entry in the payments space that have gone largely, if not completely, unexamined. State money transmission laws specifically greatly restrict the ability of new players in the space from
    gaining any sort of foothold, and the regulations involved are byzantine as
    any. For example, the State of Hawaii requires a surety bond of $1, 000 to
    obtain a license (it didn't used to until its laws changed in 2007), but the
    State of Pennsylvania requires a surety bond of $1 million--effectively a
    1, 000x difference in price for the same exact type of license! In general,
    starting a new payments company requires about $10 million of capital before
    any product development work even begins--which is one of the reasons why there haven't been very many competitors in the payments industry over the years. As anti-terrorism laws such as the USA PATRIOT Act have increased the criminal penalties for illegal money transmission in the United States, the
    disincentives to compete have also grown. In a perfect world where Money Services Businesses (MSBs) were regulated by a simple, comprehensive federal framework for the rational and important purpose of preventing fraud, companies such as my own would have no problem at all putting pressure on Visa and MasterCard to lower their interchange rates for credit and debit. We already significantly undercut their complex pricing with a simple transaction fee of

    1.5% flat, no monthly fees, no authorization fees, and no other surcharges. For
    a typical small restaurant, the aggregate savings of our rate structure amounts
    to an 80% decrease in total fees relative to an average merchant's plastic card processing fee structure. The only problem is that because of the insane money transmitter laws in this country, we can't do business (without considerable
    regulatory headache) in Alabama, Alaska, Arizona, Arkansas, Colorado,
    Connecticut, Delaware, Florida, Georgia, Hawaii, Idaho, Illinois, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maine, Maryland, Michigan, Minnesota, Mississippi,
    Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Jersey, North Carolina, North Dakota, Ohio, Oklahoma, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, Vermont, Virginia, Washington, West Virginia,
    Wisconsin, Wyoming--or Washington, D.C. That leaves us a few disconnected states where we can try to make an impact, but it's hard to convince customers to sign up for a new payment network that doesn't work in four out of five states because it might send them to jail. In summary, regulating the actual price of transactions by imposing a ceiling is a blunt way to enforce fairness that has the potential serious downside of restricting the benefits that might
    be derived from developing competing technologies that would send the banks scurrying to lower their prices anyway. A much better and more thoughtful approach would be for the Federal Reserve to recommend to Congress to consolidate, simplify and overhaul the money transmission laws in this country so that more innovative companies with more efficient cost structures can compete the way they should be allowed to in the first place. Furthermore, if a ceiling is imposed on
    transaction fees, it is likely to inadvertently affect smaller banks (under the statutory $10 billion asset threshold) and alternative payment systems. Clearly something needs to be done to help consumers and small businesses, but there are much better ways to go about achieving the desired result, which is a more efficient payment system for all.

    Two RECAP Grants Awarded in Memory of Aaron Swartz
    Date Tue 02 April 2013 By citp Tags Grants / RECAP / Aaron Swartz
    In memory of Internet activist Aaron Swartz, Think Computer Foundation (http://www.thinkcomputer.org) and the Center for Information Technology Policy (CITP) at Princeton University (http://citp.princeton.edu) are announcing the winners of two $5, 000 grant awards for improving RECAP.

    Since 2009, a team of researchers at Princeton has worked on a web browser-based system known as RECAP (https://free.law/recap/) that allows citizens to recapture public court records from the federal government’s official PACER database. The Administrative Office of the Courts charges per-page user fees for PACER documents, which makes it expensive to access these public records. RECAP allows users to easily share the records that they purchase to and freely access documents that others have already purchased.

    Shortly after the unexpected death of Mr. Swartz, Think Computer Foundation announced that it would fund grants worth $5, 000 each to extend RECAP and make use of data contained in Think Computer Foundation’s PlainSite database of legal information.

    Two of these grants are being awarded today.

    Ka-Ping Yee, a Canadian software developer living in Northern California, has created a version of RECAP for Google’s Chrome browser. This gives RECAP a much larger base of potential users. Previously, RECAP had only been available for the Mozilla Firefox browser.

    Filippo Valsorda and Alessio Palmero Aprosio, both from Italy, have improved RECAP to support the version of PACER used by the U.S. appellate courts. This new functionality helps to dramatically expand the scope of citizens’ free access to United States case law. This improved Firefox version of the extension is also available at https://addons.mozilla.org, and appellate functionality will be available soon for Chrome as well.

    These awards recognize work that furthers Swartz’s ideals of information freedom and openness. The remaining grant involves visualizing data available on Think Computer Foundation’s PlainSite web site (the deadline for which has been extended to May 31, 2013 as work on PlainSite continues).

    About the Grant Winners

    RECAP for Google Chrome - Ka-Ping Yee

    Ka-Ping Yee Headshot
    The Chrome version of RECAP was developed by Ka-Ping Yee (@zestyping), a founding member of the Crisis Response team at Google.org, where he participated in responses to the Haiti earthquake in 2010, the Tohoku earthquake in 2011, and Hurricane Sandy in 2012. Today, he is the lead engineer for Google Crisis Map and Google Person Finder, and he also creates interactive LED art and plays the piano. Ping is from Winnipeg and now lives in Berkeley. He says: “Aaron was a friend, and I was powerfully affected by his passing. His life’s work embodied many of the ideals I have long supported. I was disappointed in myself that I hadn’t done much to further these causes, and the grants gave me the opportunity to turn a time of great sadness into a useful contribution. RECAP corrects an injustice; I was glad I could help. I intend to donate the award to GiveWell in Aaron’s memory.”

    RECAP for the U.S. Courts of Appeals - Filippo Valsorda and Alessio Palmero Aprosio The appellate version of RECAP was developed by a team of two Italian programmers, Filippo Valsorda and Alessio Palmero Aprosio.

    Filippo Headshot
    Filippo (@FiloSottile) is a high school student and has been programming for about 7 years, focusing recently on cryptography and security. He loves math, and was part of the Italian team at the International Mathematical Game Championship. He has also recently claimed a bounty in the Facebook Bug Bounty program. He says “[a]t the time of the grants announcement I was quite shocked by Aaron’s suicide, and I found out [that] I was working (unknowingly) on a project started by him. So it felt good to play a role in fixing something that he fought for. The competition was also interesting from a technical point of view. While working on the project, we also got a feel of how the PACER system is unjust and broken when we were fool enough to make a search for “Smith” and got billed $25 without any warning.”

    Alessio Head Shot
    Alessio Palmero Aprosio is a Ph.D. student at Fondazione Bruno Kessler in Trento, where he is working on computational linguistics, machine learning and the semantic web. He says: “I think that for documents to be truly public, they must be available on the web for free. The competition was a good way to help a community. As I’m not a U.S. citizen, I don’t know the issue in detail. However, I worked a lot in the IT field, where I learned that technology can help improve many areas. That was true in this case, so I felt that we must fight for this cause. The very fact that we are talking about Aaron means that his projects have not been forgotten, and he would be happy about that. He fought to make PACER publicly available, so I think that he would have approved of the grants. Onward!”

    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 owned by Attorney Jeffrey Allen Steinport, 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.

  • Aaron Jacob Greenspan aka Aaron Greenspan is the founder of Think Computer Foundation, which manages Plain Site (plainsite.org). Aaaron's website states that he has registered Plain Site, a purported public access function to court websites, as a 501(c)(3) charity in line with IRS regulations.

    The basis for the website came from Aaron's own interest and experience with technology and the law. Aaaron claimed that the purpose of Think Computer Foundation was to help children through technology. Yet, later this became a personal piggy bank for him to fund his numerous lawsuits. In the past, he has claimed he was defamed because he was left out of book and movie deals due to defamation by omission. Each of his lawsuits were dismissed and he was hit with a motion for sanctions at each step.

    The case is:

    Greenspan v. Random House, et al., Case No. 1:11-CV-12000-RBC (District of Massachusetts) (Greenspan's lawsuit is dismissed and appeal is denied and supreme court review was denied)

    Far from helping children, which is nothing more than a cover, Think Computer Foundation and Plain Site have morphed into a personal piggy bank for Aaron Greenspan to fund his own speech. In sum and substance, Think Computer Foundation, Plain Site, and Aaron Greenspan are alter egos of each other. They do not exist separately. They do not have an independent board. They do not have separate auditors, attorneys etc. Instead, Aaaron uses these companies and foundations to raise fraudulent donations from donors, of which I am one, and to efficiently evade taxes.

    Aaron has also active sued the US Court System, on behalf of Think Computer Foundation, attempting to act pro se. However, his suit was struck out because under long standing precedent, a corporation cannot be represented by an unlicensed attorney. Aaron is not a licensed attorney. He is also a college drop out. In sum and substance, he over promises and under delivers and what you are left with is feeling cheated and feeling like you have funded a conspiracy theorist. It is truly unfortunate because here is a guy with so much promise if he could just be honest.

    The case is:

    Aaron Greenspan, Think Computer Foundation v. Administrative Office of the US Courts, Case No. 5:2014-CV-2396 JTM

    (Case Dismissed, Appeal Denied)

    The Fraud and IRS Problem with Plain Site and Think Computer Foundation:

    Aaron has collectved donations from his friends and colleagues, myself included in the amount of $100, 000, and to date we have not seen a single dime used in the manner described to us when he requested the donation. When I personally asked for my donation back, he pointed that he controls Think Computer Foundation and can personally use the money as he sees fit. I am in the process of filing suit for fraud and conversion in state court and was wondering if anyone else has had this problem with either Aaaron Greenspan or any of his alter egos.

    But let me back up a bit. What was described to us as a part of Think Computer Foundation and later Plain Site? Think Computer Foundation was purportedly to help needy kids through technology. But needy kids don't really need access to court records do they? No, they dont. So Think Computer Foundation later became synonymous with Plain Site, which is an alternative to the publicly funded PACER court system access to documents. So, instead of helping needy children, Aaron now has a personal site masquerading as a court access website and Aaron, and only Aaron, gets to pick what or which documents are uploaded and available on Plainsite.

    We were under the impression that this was a reputable guy, that he was also independently wealthy and, thus, our donations would go to a good cause: public access to a court system. Unfortunately, it is hard to tell, which one, if any, of Aaron's claims are true. Each time his company has a problem, he attempts to act ike a lawyer or change the rules so that they don't apply to him. Worse, the Plain Site website has become nothing more than a trolling adventure for Aaron. Every time there is a new news story that details someone's misfortune, he uploads their docket on to the website and publicly shames them both online and through his tweets. While public dissemination of information is certainly a goal worthy of support -- and that is why I and others have contributed to his foundation in the past. However, using the foundation, plain site and related twitter accounts as a trolling feature to publicly shame and defame individuals is not what his donors signed up for. It is also completely against the rules of a purported IRS 501(c)(3) foundation. Tax free entities are not meant to be used as personal media outlets for trolling purposes.

    Aaron has committed a fraud by taking money, services and equipment from his donors to perpetuate a continuing personal website masquerading as a charity.

    The Fraud Problem with Aaron Greenspan and Coinbase, Inc.

    Now, what comes next? Aaron applies for a license to issue digital currency in Florida. Website is here:

    archive.org/details/coinbasefloridamtl

    It gets even more interesting:

    Aaron was charged in connection with a criminal complaint for False Claims Violations and Fraud in United States v. Yurygrenadyor, Case No. 09-CV-7891, although the charges were dismissed.

    None of this information has ever been disclosed to his donors and perhaps his investors. He is a conman with a slick sales pitch. He wants to help people help others, especially the needy, through technology. But its all lies. He is an abrasive, ill-tempered man with poor business judgment and completely lacking in ethics.

    When I met Aaron I thought he was out to change the world. He was idenpendently wealthy. He wanted others to help him through his foundation change the world through technology. But he will talk to you until your check clears. The moment it does, all promises are off. What are you are actually funding is Aaron Greenspan and no one else. And his foundation is nothing more than a sham and he is likely to lose his 501(c)(3) certification. I have sent in an email to the IRS through their reporting service. I have filed suit in state court to get return of my money and I am wondering if Aaron has hit other people up for donations to his foundation? Did he disclose how many times he has been sued or sued himself? Did he disclose to you his selection process of what gets included and what does in Plain Site and how he sets up pages to defame people? Is anyone else owed money? Did you guys know that you are funding Aaron Greenspan's endless series of frivolous lawsuits? His defamation campaigns? His advertisements? Please report it here.

    Aaron Greenspan a pesky Tick

    Dear Facebook, I’m Never Going Away
    By John Letzing
    Sep 19, 2012 7:50 pm ET
    0 COMMENTS
    Facebook Inc. is famous for its controversial creation story. And while the Winklevoss twins have apparently moved on, one claimant to Facebook fame doesn’t appear to be going away anytime soon.

    Aaron Greenspan, who attended Harvard University with Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg, has been battling with the company for years over trademark claims and has published a book describing his creation of an unrecognized Facebook forebear called houseSYSTEM. Over time, Mr. Greenspan has been eager to point out Mr. Zuckerberg’s alleged ethical lapses for anyone willing to listen.

    On Wednesday, Mr. Greenspan published a batch of early instant messages between himself and Mr. Zuckerberg allegedly from Facebook’s earliest days. They offer little new information about Facebook’s origins, but provide an interesting window into the mind of a young Mr. Zuckerberg on his way to very big things–though his vision is perhaps not crystal clear.

    In one IM exchange allegedly from Jan. 2005, after Mr. Zuckerberg moved his start-up to Silicon Valley, he’s asked by Mr. Greenspan what he wants what was then known as “Thefacebook” to be. “I kind of want to be the new mtv, ” Mr. Zuckerberg responds. When Mr. Greenspan suggests Thefacebook (It would not become “Facebook” until later in 2005) would be a good match for MTV, Mr. Zuckerberg answers: “Yea but I don’t think they buy stuff… not that i want to sell yet.”

    It was, of course, avoiding early takeover bids from large companies that enabled Facebook to ultimately go public on its own this May –though its share price has tumbled since then, to close at $23.29 on Wednesday.

    A Facebook spokesman declined to comment on the legitimacy of the messages published by Mr. Greenspan.

    In another exchange allegedly from Dec. 2004, Mr. Zuckerberg–who would one day star in the opening of an episode of Saturday Night Live–writes that he’s just returned home from Los Angeles, where he sounds star-struck about having been able to meet the band Green Day backstage after a concert.

    In the same IM exchange, Mr. Zuckerberg also describes his efforts to redesign the home page of his nascent social site: “It’s way too long when you have a message, a poke, a friend request and all that stuff.”

    Mr. Greenspan and Facebook have sparred now for years. In 2008, Mr. Greenspan filed a petition with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office to cancel Facebook’s “Facebook” trademark, which had been issued in 2006. In 2009, Mr. Greenspan agreed to settle the matter for undisclosed terms–though he wrote Wednesday that he continues to spar with the company over its “bogus trademark rights.”

    In a statement issued when Facebook settled its spat with Greenspan over the “Facebook” trademark in 2009, Mr. Zuckerberg said that, “Aaron and I studied together at Harvard and I’ve always admired his entrepreneurial spirit and love of building things.” He also acknowledged that Mr. Greenspan’s houseSYSTEM included a “Universal Face Book feature.”

    Mr. Greenspan still sounds bitter about the fact while the two men were building similar technologies at the same time, it’s Mr. Zuckerberg who’s won fame and fortune. He notes that for about three years until 2011, the two lived “exactly one block” away from each other in Palo Alto, Calif., formerly home to Facebook’s headquarters.

    “It wouldn’t have been difficult for him to stop by and apologize for any misunderstanding, ” Mr. Greenspan writes of Mr. Zuckerberg. “Not to mention the several times we crossed paths, either when he walked in front of my house, or was walking to his, or sitting down for Mexican food at Palo Alto Sol. I got a grin and a wave, but an apology never came. There was no remorse.”

    Aaron Greenspan and his parents Neil S Greenspan and Judith Keene Greenspan are so angry at the world and that they have to dish out lots of money to take care of their two sons that they set up these entire 501c Tax Frauds so they could live on easy street and created an easy source of cash flow at the expense of thousands of Americans where they intentionally destroy people's careers and reputations with their monetized websites such as leagle.com and plainsite.org.

    These individuals own man other monetized websites and do not like to do real work for a living and definitely do not believe that they should pay any taxes even though their entire 501c is a complete Tax Fraud. Lots of the money they receive is used for their personal pleasures and they do whatever they want with other people's money without any consideration or respect for anyone.It appears these individuals feel as if they are entitled and must feel like they are smarter than the rest of the population.

    Judith Keene Greenspan has a female relative who is married to a Judge and this must give these individuals some extra confidence to just hurt people with their monetized websites where they access people's dirty laundry or legal documents for their enjoyment and profit. Work? That is a foreign word to these social pariahs.

  • @Jose 911 I have been uploading lots of the 60 pages of their 501c Tac Fraud Think Computer Corporation and Think Computer Foundation that these social pariahs started in Cleveland, Ohio in 1998. In 1998 Dr. Neil S Greenspan being the mastermind behind this entire 501c Tax Fraud described this fraud as a For Profit. Then in 2000 Dr. Neil S Greenspan who has been working at the same time as a Professor at the Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland, Ohio changed this entity to a Non Profit in 2000 and transferred this entire Tax Fraud Scam to the State of Delaware using a third party to Incorporate their entire 501c scam. The States of Delaware and Nevada do not require yearly earnings reports, so after speaking to the employee at the Ohio State Department it became clear that this operation is huge Tax Fraud as Dr. Neil S Greenspan is the VP and Treasurer and he put his son at the helm as the President so he can lay low and act like he is squeaky clean working as a Professor by day and sick vicious career and reputation destroying menace by night. These individuals have many monetized websites under the umbrella of their Tax Fraud 501c such as leagle.com, plainsite.org and just too many to mention here. Aaron Jacob Greenspan is associated with courtlistener.com owned and run by Mike Lissner and Brian from San Francisco and unitedstatescourts.org which is now shut down and owned by Attorney Jeffrey Allen Steinport from Grand Rapids, Michigan and Scottsdale, Arizona. Also Aaron Jacob Greenspan owns a monetized website that is like reputation.com which he by the way cooperates with, in order to get monetary kickbacks to remove harmful URL's. You see with this Sociopath who con never be employed in a regular job because he is anti-social he needs to destroy people's careers and reputations for a living.

    Aaron Jacob Greenspan is going around threatening, harassing, bullying, shaming and defaming other websites who post things about him online such as Scribd.com and others. What we are observing here is a double standard by this Sociopath. This individual thinks its ok for him to upload documents and other information on the public but once someone does the same thing under his/her First Amendment Right he retaliates against that person like an aggressive Sociopathic Maniac who plays the victim game and he is a pathological liar and manipulator.

    Aaron Jacob Greenspan is a danger to society and himself, as he is mentally not fit and should never be allowed to go around and mess with people's private legal documents because he intentionally seeks to destroy people's careers and reputations for his selfish personal monetary gains. He's a Scum!

    Google recaptures $761 from Facebook nemesis
    If you badmouth us, we'll play hardball
    By Cade Metz 11 Jun 2009 at 18:089 Reg comments SHARE ▼
    After it was successfully sued in small claims court by a man who says he invented Facebook, Google has appealed the decision, returned to court, and persuaded a judge to return its $761.

    In March, famous Facebook nemesis Aaron Greenspan sued Google in a North California court, claiming that Google terminated his AdSense account without explanation and failed to pay him the $721 he was owned for ad clicks on his website. A judge ruled in favor of Greenspan, awarding him the $721 plus $40 in court costs.

    As Greenspan says in a recent piece on The Huffington Post, a Google paralegal soon sent him an email indicating the Mountain View Chocolate Factory was poised to cut him a check. But after Greenspan recounted the suit and questioned the company's practices in an earlier Post post, Google decided to appeal.

    Apparently, Google succeeded in getting the ruling overturned. According to court papers, the company is no longer required to pay that $761.

    Aaron Greenspan first made headlines back in the fall of 2007 and the spring of 2008 after claiming that he created Facebook at Harvard - not Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg and not the founders of ConnectU, who recently won a $60 million settlement in suing Zuckerberg and company for allegedly copying their idea.

    And he's returned to the headlines with his Google suit. His original $761 went all the way to The New York Times.

    The way Greenspan tells it, Google terminated his AdSense account because he violated the company's terms of service, serving up ads from a site devoid of content and pointing surfers to those ads with the phrase "pick a link."

    Greenspan did indeed violate the terms of service. He doesn't deny it. But in typical Google fashion, this is Google choosing to crack down rogue ad partners only when it suits the company's immediate interests. As Greenspan points out, just two days after the company terminated his account, Google opened up its yes-we-do-evil AdSense for Domains service to world+dog.

    AdSense for Domains is meant specifically for parked domains - i.e. domains devoid of content. It's a haven for typosquatters.

    Meanwhile, in an effort to get its $761 back, Google's legal team resorted to a vague personal attack on Greenspan - according to Greenspan. Greenspan says that a Google lawyer questioned him about various essays posted to one of his website, implying he had sold them to cheaters:

    "Do you sell essays to college students?" the lawyer asked.

    "What?" I asked him, confused.

    "You sell pre-written essays for college students, right? Like term papers?"

    "No!" I said, finally realizing where he was going. "I don't know where you would have even gotten that idea." Little did he know that he had hit a sore spot, since I had recently written a book about education at America's "top schools" and the many problems therein, cheating among them.

    Though at that point I should have asked him how often he beat his wife, I was too shocked to think of it. Google has more access to information about people than virtually any company on the planet, yet despite its vast resources, it found it more prudent to fabricate disparaging innuendo about me before a judge.

    In any event, it would appear that someone was so proud of Google winning its $761 back they sent a screenshot of Greenspan's terms of service violations to Search Engine Land.

    It's safe to say that Google doesn't want anyone else suing them over a terminated AdSense account. "What if everyone whose account was canceled sued Google?" that Google paralegal allegedly said when Greenspan first took the company to court. ®
