At Traverse Internet Law, we've been working hard turning back online attacks for our clients. John W Dozier Jr, President and Founder of Dozier Internet Law, has put together a top ten list of the personalities and characteristics of online attackers and scofflaws. You can read all about them in the Google Bomb book on online defamation coming soon. For now, here is an introduction, compliments of Dozier Internet Law.
Google Bomb is coming by September first. One of the things you'll learn all about is ten scofflaw persons on the web. For those under attack, it is essential that you first identify who you are dealing with. The authors of Google Bomb have plenty of experience in identifying the characteristics of online scofflaws. This evaluation really helps when you are considering the many different strategies, tactics and actions available to the target of a vicious and false online attack. Here is a short list of scofflaws who frequent the web and wield the keyboard with malice.
The Pickpocket. He used to hang out on street corners waiting for the elderly to pass by.
The Wacko. Or, as most would refer to this type of character, a nut case.
The Druggie. A normal guy during the day, a terror at night after he gets his buzz going.
The Alien. From a land far away and untouchable.
The Nerd. Dork during the day, Casanova at night fueled by the power of anonymity.
The Rookie. Even his English teacher would be surprised by this 13 year old’s creative writing.
The Sadist. Not quite foaming from the mouth, but clearly enjoying causing great pain in others.
The Bankrupt. Nothing to lose, and he acts like it with vigor.
The Criminal. Protection rackets are the tool of choice, and organized crime in a new sense is both alive and well online.
The Mis-leader. Biased and prejudiced with an ulterior motive, all cleverly hidden from view so as to seem objective and fair.
Are you a victim of an online attack? Figure your attacker out first. Otherwise, if you try to deal with it things could get worse. Much worse. Google Bomb will tell you all about the landscape of this new battlefield, and arm you with the knowledge of Sue Scheff, the recipient of an $11.3 Million defamation judgment, and John W. Dozier Jr., a top rated internet law attorney. Both leading advocates for change.
Google bomb. There is a time to keep quiet and a time to speak. The time to speak is now.
