LINDA ELLIS - AUTHOR, SPEAKER, POET, COPYRIGHT TROLL OF THE DASH EXTORTION SCHEME STILL ACTIVE EXTORTIONIST
As many of you know, I have been sharing Linda's posts from her Facebook page for about a month. I want my readers to learn from her words. They speak louder about her character than mine ever will. But I'm not done sharing my views or reporting on her trolling operation. I'm no longer letting her play in my sandbox.
The fear and shame she's circulated for years has come home to roost on her insecurity. She's afraid of us and she's afraid of her readers knowing the full story. Many already know and have defected. But my guess is a handful believe she is a victim - an image she has cultivated in her poetry and her "I'm being stalked" campaign. Only Linda knows why she wants to be seen as weak, frightened and pathetic. I have to admit, after having seen her in person, the coat fits her well. There is no Wizard behind The Dash curtain.
I've learned a lot from this experience. I wouldn't take back a single day since October of 2011 when I first shared that stupid poem. I just got off the phone with a mighty women Linda targeted. That woman is now one of my closest friends and associates. She encouraged me to write Poetic Justice. She is a former target and one of many many very good people I would never have known had I not decided to speak publicly about the Dash Extortion scheme. Linda's copyright trolling operation makes enemies for her and friends for us. Nobody thanks Linda Ellis for an extortion letter.
I have been rewarded in so many ways by standing up to Ellis and John W. Jolin. I really should write a book about those revelations. Whether she realizes it or not, her extortion scheme is pretty much over. Sure, she will snag some money here and there, but the big money is over along with most of the fear and intimidation she's wielded for nearly 2 decades. She can fool some of the people some of the time - still. 224 people have not paid her thanks to us. I'm sure that number will continue to grow. Imagine losing 95% of your income - however that money was claimed. The woman is ina world of financial hurt. Poetic Justice.
Linda Ellis does not get to be part of my inner circle any more. I've learned all that she had to teach me. I became a warrior and joined an army of courageous, brilliant and clever people who refused to be victimized. We all are standing. We've won fight after fight after fight. We've out maneuvered her and we've exposed her abuse. We are stronger and better people. Linda stands with the despised. Trolls don't make friends.
She's had chance after chance to clean up her act and live an honest and respected life. She has not learned. She seems addicted to her own suffering and the suffering of others. We've turned her sword of fear and shame into rubber. She's powerless. She's broken. There is nothing left to do but watch her destroy what's left of an uninspiring life.
UPDATE: IN 2017 Linda Ellis sold the copyright for The Dash to Mac Anderson, a wealthy publisher and author. If you paid off Linda Ellis, share your story of abuse and harassment and request a refund of extorted monies paid to Linda Ellis. Contact Mac Anderson at Simple Truths.
