Imitation is the kindest form of flattery but identity theft is just unkind and very self serving.
It seems the folks over at ZapTheIRS have hijacked my name and email address to invite people I know to that site. They must not think that they can attract membership by using their own name and their own efforts.
Late last year I worked hard to promote that site but now I regret those lost efforts. Chalk it up to living and learning. Frankly, I regret having anything at all to do with ZapTheIRS while it was still a fledgling late last year. In December, I became concerned with the direction that the site was going. This event here tells me that my gut feelings were correct.
I have not invited anyone to join that site since Marilyn and I “turned the lights on” at FTN in January of this year. She and I agree that we need to work close with FairTax.org and preserve the FairTax brand.
To that end, I wish to let everyone know that I do not support any sites other than www.FairTax.org and www.FairTaxNation.com and I do not invite anyone to those other sites unless you see me state it on FTN or see it linked on FTN.
I also do not necessarily personally endorse all of the sites that FairTax.org endorses by linking them to their site.
Did the e-mails come from ZAPTHEIRS via their message system or were they through FTN??
I'm trying to gauge the involvement here.
I'm a member of ZAP, but I don't post on there as much because:
a) its much more active here
b) I am simply running out of time and feel I should post where more responses will be received
c) I've spoken with Jim and feel the direction and goals of FTN are much more focused
That being said though I've had no problem with ZAP until I saw this and as I'm not seeing any responses to the post imaged below (were there any?) to me it just shows guilt.
Thanks for bringing this to our attention.
I came across that site yesterday while surfing for T. Jefferson quotes. I signed up - oops. I wondered how come I already had some of my friends here shown as as friends on that site, too. I'll just stay away from there.
