Someone claiming to be the author of this web page from the old GODNet
CD archives wrote to what appears to be a random number of irrelevant
people in what looks like a complaint about the web page that follows.
It wasn't exactly clear what the alleged author's problem was but it
seemed to me to be a sexual one.
Always willing and ready to assist where ever possible, I checked into
the web pages referenced and did some further digging when it turned
out one of the URLs in the complaint was rather bizarre.

Humm... Let me see now... I'm not certain but the first URL appears to
be a file from the old GODNet CD by what appears to be some Christian
extremists or something -- it's kind of difficult to tell what the
authors' problems are though it looks like he's got sexual problems.
The second URL doesn't exist and isn't on any web domain that I have any
control of... Let's see. The
WashburnReview.ORG web site, huh? It appears to be some freakishly
bizarre religious cult or something. Could be. It's apparently for a
"Washburn University" which could be either
washburnlaw.edu or both.
Ah, interesting. The "Washburn University" appears to be
associated with the
www.sodomylaws.org web site as
well so maybe I was right in my first opinion. What's interesting is
that this "Washburn University" appears to be on the side of
the good guys... I wonder what this Jeffrey kook's complaint with the
University is. Bizarre.

Um, it's unlikely that I have control over those web pages -- either
however I'll see what I can do. It would be my pleasure to replace
the fwbnw page, though you'll probably not like the
updated web page I'll put up in its place. <smile>
Are you a Christian sodomite, Jeff? I'm just curious.
We'll see if we get any kind of clairification from the complainer and
if we can still get access to this web page, we'll add the response for
What's also interesting is the reference to Robert A. Heinlein, a
fairly good author who is known for writing science fiction stories
that contained a lot of free and open sex. Very interesting and
rather telling, I'd say. I've read nearly everything RAH wrote so
I can imagine how easy it could be for some people with sexual
hangups to mythicate Heinlein's works.
In the mean time, here's some
extracts of what ever it was this Jeff guy didn't want you to see for
some reason. I've left in under the Fair Use doctrine what appears to
be the relevant text.
