I have probably 100 emails now from angry mothers of dead babies. They're apparently part of some big dead baby webring. Here is my favorite exchange. I just skimmed her email and thought she was the mother, but it was someone else, thus the confusion.

quote:

I'm writing to complain to you and ask why it is that another human being
would try and get his fun and kicks at the expense of another human being ?

I don't think or i certainly hope you don't realise the pain you've caused a
grieving mother by ridiculing her website for her lost babies and at this
point i'm respectfully and calmly asking you take the article down and post
an apology for any pain you've caused someone who is already going through
more hell than you can imagine.

I have a son who i lost over halfway into my pregnancy and he to has a
website,i of course am choosing not to allow you to learn the link for that
website after your behaviour,i also run babyloss groups online for women
who've lost their children,i sadly have over 200 members.Unless you've been
there yourself you can't possibly imagine how totally devastating it is to
lose a child like this.From the minute you know you're pregnant you begin to
have hopes and dreams for that child and for something then to go wrong
shatters your world and changes your life forever.

The reason parents like myself and the mom involved in your story and
hundreds of others choose to put these websites together is because we don't
have Christmas and school pictures,stories of funny things etc to share with
our friends,family and others about what our children are doing as they grow
so instead we share what we do have so they aren't forgotten,you see as much
as you think our children aren't important because they're not born yet
you're very wrong because women love and worship that child from the minute
they're pregnant and are building a relationship with them as soon as we
know they're there and especially once we feel them moving.There is nothing
more important than making sure the memory of our child lives on in the
sameway the memory of a loved one who dies at anytime lives on,we don't
forget our children after their gone and do whatever we can to help deal
with the pain caused by losing them.

As for why we collect the things you so enjoy ridiculing .. It's simple,when
you have kids you get to buy them things that want,when you lose that child
you don't get to do that and so you instead buy things that remind you of
them,i have a collection of Precious Moments ornaments i collect in memory
of my son that are very important to me and i don't feel the need to explain
to you any further than that why i or anyone else collects things like
this,you could never understand unless you've been there and i hope you
never ever get to know or understand the reasons why because despite the
fact i think you're a horrible excuse for a human being i wouldn't even wish
the pain on you.

It saddens me deeply that when someone could use their time and a webpage
for something as positive as sharing the love they have for their child
someone else such as yourself could use there's for such an evil,negative
purpose.You know we don't always have to understand where someone is coming
from with something but you certainly have to respect that everyone has
their own way of doing things and not enjoy cheap laugh's at their expense
not knowing the devastation you cause in the process.

I've spoken to a lawyer associated with my groups this morning and have been
told you've certainly commited some copyright infringments by using a
personal picture you had no right or permission to use so for that reason
alone the picture had better be taken down from your website straight away
or i'll take further steps to have it removed,I'm also sending a letter to
your hosting company to notify them how their service is being
represented,i'm sure you're sitting there thinking nothing of this but i can
tell you that we've had problems with individuals such as yourselves before
and despite their attempts to claim freespeech and all kinds of pathetic and
weak excuses we've had their websites both suspended and/or taken down on a
permenant basis so before that becomes necessary i'd ask you to see the
error of your ways and do the right thing for a change.Like i said right now
i'm being respectful and calm despite my internal anger and disgust but we
can play this another way if you so wish and i promise you there hasn't been
a person yet who hasn't regretted messing with a bunch of grieving mothers
by the time we were through with them.

Please show some respect even if you don't understand and remove the entire
piece for the parents sake if nobody else's,you've now caused extreme pain
and had your cheap laugh's it's time to be a better person and cause no
more.

BTW you mentioned Heaven in your piece,i'm thinking by your comments that
you believe in God and Heaven ?? If so i wonder how you justify your actions
in causing someone so much hurt when you know God would be saddened by your
causing someone so much pain as well,aren't we supposed to be kinder and
gentler with other human beings than this ? I guess when you get to
Heaven,if you do,there's going to be some heavy explaining to do before
you're allowed to enter as to why you chose to live your life the way you
are.

My reply:

I'll take the picture of your kids down out of respect for your loss. I will also spare your emails the scathing that the other nasty letters are going to get on Friday.

- Zack

quote:

Ok Zack so the picture is down and i need not push any harder for the lawyer
with the copyright part of this and i very much appreciate the fact you did
that although i fear it was done more out of the fear of legal action than
it was because you felt for the parents involved.However i notice you still
have link up for the website and being it's owned by the mother of this baby
and you don't have permission to put that on your site it also infringes
several laws and so we'd appreciate that coming down as well even though the
mother has sadly seen fit to remove her stuff herself right now,we're hoping
to make her see that just because one person would see fit to ridicule her
doesn't mean she needs to hide her children away from everyone .. You see
the damage and heartache you've caused now ?

So now i appeal to you one more time to do the right thing and remove the
entire article,trust me if we're talking about things on the internet that
you want to label as awful go look around the websites for things that
exploit children in a pedophile nature,thats sick and needs drawing to the
publics attention at large,all you're doing right now is hurting very good
people who are already going through so much.

This entire episode has made it through my groups and the members,all 198 of
them,are deeply upset about this .. You've had your fun and cheap shot at
someone else's expense please do the right thing now and remove the entire
article.

I'm going to be checking in a couple of hours for it to have been removed
and if not i'm going to send the letter via email i have prepared for your
web hosting company and will start an email campaign against having your
site up with as many bereaved parents as i can and trust me there's a lot of
us.

Theresa Heath.


quote:

I didn't even read your emails closely enough to see you had threatened us with legal action. If you want to try to sue us over having a link or whatever craziness you're talking about now go for it. That article will be off the front page in 48 hours if you can just withstand the torment of knowing some people might be laughing at making a website about dead babies.

Also, I must have misread your email, I thought you were the mother of the dead babies. If you aren't, that's awesome, your emails will join the others.

- Zack

quote:

I'll be contacting your webcompany now as will anyone and everyone else to
complain about the content of your website removed seeing as you don't see
fit to do it for yourself.

Btw if you didn't read my email closely enough per your first sentence how
could you then have misread my email to think i was the mother of the dead
babies per your second sentence.Apparently you read it more than you'd like
to make out ..

I can't imagine how ashamed of you your mother must be.


quote:

Oh ho, you caught me in a trap of logic Theresa! Five points go to Gryffindor!

I await the ruin you and the other dead baby moms will bring to my vast empire of hatred. After all, making some jokes about a dead baby website is tantamount to raping you and for this I deserve to have my black empyrean of evil reduced to ash.

- Zack

quote:

Oh ok now i understand your inablility to act like an adult,my ten yr old
refers to Harry Potter when she speaks so i guess you're not old enough to
have developed compassion yet,that said i know even she would be above
hurting someone intentionally.The fact you plain refuse to remove an article
you could easily replace with something else shows me that now the only
reason you're leaving it up is because you don't want to be seen as doing
something nice for a bunch of women ..

Your next comments comparing it to surprise sex truly shows how pathetically
juvenile you are Zack .. stick to talking about insects because you know
nothing about real life to take an active part in the world in which you
live.

quote:

Why don't you submit a fully written Awful Link of the Day to me and if I like it I'll replace the dead baby website with the one you come up with. You can turn to your dead baby mom action squad for assistance if you want to make it a group project. Have fun with it, and don't be afraid to break out the Elmer's and uncooked macaroni!

- Zack

quote:

I heard from someone this evening you're planning on putting emails
everyone sent you up for display on Friday and adding a "scathing" .. I hope
you know well enough by now it won't sit well with me to include anything i
have said to you today.I am telling you right now and very clearly that you
DO NOT have permission to use anything that was written by me and i'll take
any action required should you choose to do so .. Email is private
correspondence and this end of the conversation gives no permission for my
words to be used.

Also my husband has a telephone contact number now for your website and
would like a contact number for you so he can speak to you about some of
your comments today.

Theresa.

As an aside:

quote:

I'm very saddened and angered by your website's view of parents who have had
a baby (or babies) die by making fun of their sorrow. Are you that thick
in the head to not even try to understand the grief that follows such a
death? You think it's easy to fill the hole in your heart when that baby
you wanted more than anything doesn't make it? Burying my precious baby
girl was the HARDEST thing I ever had to do! How dare you try to understand
the grief process of parents without showing any sign of compassion.

No, I don't have a website dedicated to her ~ yet I appreciate other
parent's websites dedicated to their babies ~ but I do collect Angel Hello
Kitty from the year 2000 in memory of her. When my baby died, I had to
focus my love for her in a different way ~ just because she is dead doesn't
mean that my love for her is dead too.

Parents that have websites or collect items for their children that have
died are not doing it for the dead, but for the living ~ since the parents
are living, they are hurting and these are ways (or tools) to helping with
the grief and the feeling of loss. We are not trying to subsitute for the
lives of our children, we are trying to fill the emptyness in our hearts.

You obviously have never lost a baby ~ you're probably not even a father.
If you are, I feel sorry for you since you don't care whether they live or
die.

My reply:

quote:

Look lady, the Internet is my domain and the dead baby graveyard is your
domain. I feel very sorry for you when you're mourning your kids in the
dead baby graveyard, but when you dig them up and stick them on the Internet
I don't have any qualms about making fun of you or anyone else for doing it.
Especially when they turn their private and more than a little unorthodox
grieving process into a three ring circus of nightmares. If my website ever
shows up in your dead baby graveyard, feel free to make fun of that.

Most of these people either want me dead, wish I was stillborn, or want me to have a stillborn baby. Because I made fun of their hideous corpse website. These are loving adults, not ICP fans.

How dare you use peoples heartbreak as your own humour... The person you have posted about who is mourning the loss of her babies is a friend of mine, i met her through a charity of wonderful supportive women who havent been blessed with fortune of having a living baby. I myself have lost 4 babies and it tears my heart out everyday.

I would perhaps be very cautious if i was you for putting persons details such as this on a website to make money! The law is a nasty thing... but you know what is worse? Karma it is a bitch and will bite you back!

I have never wished the loss of a baby on anyone... but you well that is a very different story. Perhaps the world would have been a better place if you mother had have lost you at birth.

You disgust me!

The poison womb comment is going to produce some GOLDEN responses. The next update practically writes itself.

To speak of "abandoned socialism" presupposes that there was some socialism that was abandoned. That is quite an exaggeration. There have been moves towards traditional socialist ideals of the kind described by Dewey - who I quoted not because the observations are original, but because he is America's leading social philosopher, "as American as apple pie," in the standard phrase. Such initiatives have often been demolished by force, not only in the West. The first acts of Lenin and Trotsky after taking power were to destroy the factory councils and Soviets, and in fact just about every socialist tendency that had developed before the Bolshevik takeover. From then until its collapse, the Soviet tyranny was one of the major anti-socialist forces in the world. But nonetheless, there were elements of democracy and socialism (in the traditional non-Bolshevik sense), including self-management in the former Yugoslavia, though it was severely flawed because of the more general context of centralized authority within which it was embedded.
