Linda Ellis No Longer Sends Dash Extortion Letters to Grieving Families

Today, May 1, 2015, I claim a victory.
Linda Ellis appears to have stopped targeting grieving families. I make this assumption based on her targets who have contacted me in the last 11 months. Not a single person is someone who used The Dash in a funeral program or bereavement website or newsletter. This tells me we have successfully gotten our message out to grieving families and the funeral industry who may have considered using the poem and who now choose meaningful (& safe) poetry by authors like Ron Tramner. http://www.rontranmer.com/



Linda Ellis Sends My Husband Another Letter - Geez - Enough Already

Linda Ellis continues to try to stop the publication of Poetic Justice. This is the 6th letter she's sent to my husband and/or his employers.

From: Live Your Dash! <liveyourdash@bellsouth.net>
Date: Thu, Jan 8, 2015 at 5:34 PM
Subject: Hello

Hi Mike,

This is Linda Ellis.  I’m sure you have completely the wrong impression of me from your wife (ex?), but her obsession with me is still going strong, unfortunately.  At first, I wrote to you because I thought you were part of the dispute and might be the voice of reason, but then I realized you were as innocent as anyone.  I am a reasonable person and this is all pretty “out there” to me, but it is what it is. 

We have tried to take the high road, but her fixation has grown unfortunately, and now we are now forced to fight fire with fire. 

We will be posting some personal information in response to what she is doing. We mean you no ill will...you seem like a really nice guy.  The finished page(s) will be here:  www.justfreespeech.com and www.lindalogic.com/obsession.html and advertising will be extensive. (They are drafts now, but available for public view.)  

If you ever see anything that you feel would harm you or your reputation, let me know and I will immediately delete it.

We know you are founder, etc. of some of her organizations, but we really don't want you involved in this stupid, unnecessary mess.  April takes things too far.  I understand even your neighbor tried to get a restraining order against her.  All sorts of information is coming our way and we really don’t want to play this stupid, childish game.  But, what would you do?

There are actually things I have that I hate to post…she’s leaving me no choice.

Thanks and best to you in 2015,


Linda Ellis, Author of The Dash, Her Weakness is Lying

The Weakness of Women

Before I get started, let me say this, the women in my life are not weak. I can rattle off one woman after another that I admire for their many strengths and it’s their influence over me that flushes out my own strength and determination. My inner circle, clients and volunteers are strong and powerful women. So this is not about those women. And I’m not talking about the women who are weakened by childhood abuse and environment and culture that create their weakness and submission. I’m talking about women who portray a certain kind of weakness by choice - feminine weakness - that harms not only themselves but those around them.

I tend to side with women. It seems that the choices I’ve made have put me in a position to hear their stories of abuse, neglect, crippling diseases, mental disorders, and drug and alcohol abuse that gets women tangled up in the legal system and have hard lives. I understand why women are weakened and I understand why many never overcome. Those women are a burden and cost society time and money. They never quite get to be the women they were meant to be and each day for them and those around them is tough and sucks. Most probably never become strong enough to deal.

Circling back to Linda Ellis. When I got my first extortion letter from Linda Ellis, I laughed. I thought for sure it was a scam. The letters kept coming each more threatening than the last. At no time did I ever feel afraid. I always thought that I had been snared in a scam. Eventually though, I did feel afraid and weak. When she unleashed a registered sex offender to taunt me and then began interacting with my neighbors with their shady and criminal history, I was truly afraid. I mean the woman had managed to get within 60 feet of my house! I took all the precautions I could. I told the delivery drivers and the rest of my neighbors to watch my house an installed security cameras everywhere. I could have my own very boring reality show with the click of the mouse. After I was accused of stalking and harassment (the case was dismissed) and met my accusers face to face in a courtroom, the fear evaporated. I clearly saw my accusers fear. The were afraid to the core. Of what I’m not sure, but Linda Ellis had connected to some rage inside them that worked for her scheming.

I think liars live in a constant state of being caught lying don’t you?

I also met Linda Ellis, John Jolin, and her attorneys, Timothy McCormack and Betsy McBride face to face in the rotunda of the Georgia Supreme Court. I felt their fear. It was palpable. As I watched both sides present, it was obvious that neither of her attorney’s had prepared a persuasive presentation. They knew they were presenting altered exhibits and out of context evidence. Our side presented the facts as they occurred without manipulation. You might already know this, but the judges had read all the exhibits months before the sides presented. So the Justices were prepared and had already compared both sides before the argument. They too knew the exhibits had been altered before either side opened their mouth. I left knowing the ruling would be overturned. Linda’s team left knowing they blew it. I could just tell from their body language. They got caught.

So this is the weakness I’m talking about. Women who lie thinking they will never get caught and then when they do they keep lying. Linda Ellis lies when there are stacks of evidence to the contrary. She has a website called Linda Logic for posting more BS about me. She needs to preserve her image as a Christian author and her image of a poor little suffering Southern housewife who is being attacked by that mean Seattle auctioneer. Her entire act nauseates me. It’s women like this that have charged innocent men and women with crimes and who cause immeasurable suffering. And it’s this kind of weakness that ruins families and clogs the legal system. Because of what I've learned about Linda Ellis, I am going to volunteer for the "Innocence Project" and be of help to those wrongfully accused and languishing on death row.

Now that she has lost the battle with Matthew Chan, I’m back in first position as her “Cyber Stalker” - her words not mine. I will continue to report, write and defend the people she targets. One day The Dash Extortion Scheme will end.


Linda Ellis wants to Shut Down The Truth Behind The Dash Facebook Page

Linda Ellis and her band of dolts wants FB to shut down this page https://www.facebook.com/getpoeticjustice. Here we go again. How many times is she going to report me to Google, Facebook, Squarespace, Comcast, GoDaddy, Youtube, Vimeo and Pinterest? What am I doing that's so wrong?

Is my reporting on Linda's bad behavior equal to her committing the act of harming others? We know I don't spending every waking minute trying to get innocent infringers to pay me $7500 for a poem that apparently is unsalable through regular commerce channels. The Dash is nothing more than bait for hooking and extorting good people who share the tripe. What is a can of good worms worth these days anyway? Not $7500.

Ask yourself, if she is legit, why is she so afraid of the truth? Why not prove me wrong. Why not post all this damning evidence you have about me. I would love love love to respond to your newest foolishness.

In any case, we have 3 guesses as to why she's shaking in her boots. 1) more victims will speak out 2) she's receiving fewer payoffs from 3 years of exposure 3) and the real author of the Dash will come forward. If any or all are true, the end of The Dash Extortion scheme draws near.


Why Matthew Chan of Extortion Letter Info Got Mad at Linda Ellis, author of The Dash

In an effort to shed some light on why Matthew Chan became so irritated with Linda Ellis and why he took a hard line stance against her and the Dash extortion scheme. This post was written on the Extortion Letter Info forum home page on January 17, 2013. Linda had been lurking on ELI using aliases. She had been posting in her own defense and the ELI members essentially figured out that she was behind the posts and began mocking her. She thought she could come on the forum and garner sympathy. She even contacted Matthew to tell her side of the story. The interview only revealed how far she has strayed down the copyright troll road. Her revenge was to shut down the ELI forum. Well, that didn't shut us up either. Next came the charge that Matthew Chan was stalking and harassing her, then a hearing and the order was granted, then overturned by the Georgia Supreme Court.


"This report and commentary is long overdue but it couldn’t be helped due to the sensitivity of the communication and work being done the last few days. We simply could not openly report all the details we are now going to share.

On Thursday, July 17, 2013, I received a surprising “Abuse” email notification from my web hosting provider. I immediately distributed this email internally to the ELI Defense Team.

Dear Matthew,

eApps Hosting


When I got this email, I immediately suspected that the complaints came from the Linda Ellis camp but without further information, I was uncertain as to who might have issued a complaint to my web hosting provider. I exercised careful restraint in what I would publicly say.

My reply to the web hosting provider was the following." (rest of the story)
