The Nizkor Project: Remembering the Holocaust (Shoah)

Linda Thompson's insulting tone

Ms. Thompson responded to our note about the file name, and it's location on the Nizkor web, in the following manner:

It is extremely disingenuous of you to claim this is not "your" listing. Let me quote your own tripe for you:

[Ms. Thompson cites the text from the HWEB Project page, concluding with the following text.]

Every mention of me by the ADL is defamatory and the majority is false and much is entirely fabricated. You have not only the ADL-Thompson file, but also the "Armed and Dangerous" reference. I have not looked, but if there are any other references to me on these pages, remove them as well.

Either remove these listings, stop using my name without my authority, and stop associating me with your witch hunt for "nazis and racists," or your on the lawsuit, no ifs, ands or buts.

In his response, Mr. McVay offered the following comments:

From kmcvay Sun Jul 7 09:51:37 1996
To: (Linda Thompson)

"It is extremely disingenuous of you to claim this is not "your" listing. Let me quote your own tripe for you:"

I have made no such claim, nor have I used insulting language in my communication with you. If you wish to communicate with me further, I would ask that you remain polite and respectful, and act in a professional manner.

Sincerely yours,
Kenneth McVay, O.B.C.

Nizkor wonders if Ms. Thompson, a public figure, has made similar demands of DejaNews, which archives all of her posts to various BITNET mailing lists and UseNet newsgroups.

Somehow, we doubt it.
