                    Good Morning Everyone...well, this is going to be a long story.

                    It seems that someone on a facebook group (one that I'm not a member of and can't respond to) has been digging around my past in an attempt to sabotage my business, this forum, and me.

                    Our Moderators here have known this whole story for a very long time. I have never lied to the membership here, and I never will. I have never cheated the membership here, and I never will. In fact, I defy anyone to find one single instance where I've been anything less than overwhelmingly fair and honest.

                    There are administrators, moderators and members at another forum that would clearly like me to dry up and die.

                    So, since they can't tear down my forum, or my app, they come for me.

                    So, here you go.

                    Yes, years ago, (1998) long before I ever heard of Mechanical Turk, I owned an e-commerce business that sold pocketknives. This business thrived for many years.

                    From 1998 to 2005, I had a nice e-commerce business, over a quarter million in sales. My Mother, while babysitting, got into my records. Used my passwords, started pulling my orders, copying them, then deleting them from the server. She set up her own merchant credit card processing account and began charging my customers. My customers would contact me asking why they weren’t getting their orders, orders that I didn’t know existed. She also used my customer’s identities to commit crimes. I tracked down the problem...her. I tried to fix it, and started "refunding" everyone she'd robbed in my name (instead of turning my own Mother over to the law) but was too late. It turns out that trying to fix a problem instead of reporting it makes you a part of a conspiracy. In 2007, I was arrested, so was my Mother. I fought my case HARD for 4 years and very nearly won it. We were convicted in federal court of the same charges: Mail Fraud, Wire Fraud, Access Device Fraud, Identity Theft. I did a good job of fighting my case (my lawyer wanted to sponsor me to law school). I personally paid $65,000 of restitution on the day of my sentencing, she paid nothing. I got 60 days, mostly because it was so hard to believe that a little old lady could do such things. She got 3 ½ years in Federal Prison. But, I was a felon now. I cannot vote, I cannot run for office. I cannot get a good job. I cannot own a firearm. My picture was on the front page of the newspaper, and on the evening news. Hundreds of people “my victims” wanted me dead...no joke. They wanted to pay someone to abuse me while I was incarcerated. I was told that I was worse than a terrorist.

                    So anyway, 6 years ago my health started to suffer from all of this. Within a two month period I had a kidney stone, pneumonia, and a stroke. I’m greatly weakened, both mentally and physically. I get tired quickly, and have to sleep more than I like to keep a clear head. I’m under a doctor’s care, and a neurologist. They tell me that this is just how it’s going to be from now on, and that this will increase my risk of further mental difficulties later in life.

                    So, I completed my "time", my "probation", went to school and got a degree in web design/visual communications. I eventually found mTurk and you know the story from there.

                    Now, since I started this place...which I didn't want to...TN pulled the rug out from under us if you remember...the fine folks at TN, and some others along the way have tried repeatedly to undermine this place. (ask the moderators...they know). I created Otto, and while some of those same people use it...which I could prevent and don't...they also pull hogwash like this.

                    Therefore, here's my statement for those involved...assholes "There's no skeletons in my closet...I just dragged them out and put them on display" . Damn you all to Hell for not competing in a straight up manner. You're cowards to feel you have to resort to something like this to attack someone like me. I won't go looking into your past...why would I ? I've got better things to do. So, I ask you...my enemies "what would you have me do...quit ?" If I'm detracting from your business, then step up and compete like an honest person. Stop sniveling, I've survived worse than you...far worse.

                    I've just got done spending nearly $10K on an upgrade to Otto. I'm dead fucking serious about this place. It's clear, by your actions that you aren't serious about yours.



                    To the membership here...I love you all...I know you love me...I'm not going anywhere...I know I have your support.

                      That is so petty! I know all about people deserving a second chance. Almost 8 years ago my husband was charged with manufacturing and because it was done at our home I was drug into and taken to jail also even though I had never been a drug addict. At the time I was working for our local school district driving a bus and I was a teachers aide. I had to resign from my positions and a lot of crap was said about me that was not true. I was put on probation for 5 years and that ended last October. Luckily, my felony is no longer on my record. Those 5 years were hell for finding a job and I had always been the sole provider. That is when I found Mturk. Thankfully I was able to find a school that is understanding of things and has given me another chance in life. I have been there since last November and life has been looking up. Oh, and my husband has 6 years clean and sober. Keep your head up. We are all here to support each other. That's what a family does.

                      I am new to this group and don't know you very well, but I think everyone deserves a second chance. Keep on doing what you doing!

                      I appreciate your honesty and I'm sorry you have to deal with this. I've been here since the beginning and long before Otto(which has changed my turking life) - I know I can trust you and you've created more of a home here than I had at TN..

                      Hundreds of us are so thankful for all you've done and all the work you've put into this.
