Oh, woohoo, Julian Assange tries to court younger women and doesn't do very well. That so CLEARLY makes everything he published bad and wrong, and we should never listen to another thing he publishes, because clearly he has made it all up. It's true. Libel and Slander are ALL that romantically handicapped people are capable of publishing.

When will the world grow up and stop saying "He did something silly once! Everything he has ever done must be wrong by extension!"

This is more a reflection on how pathetically the governments and media are trying to take our attention of the fact that they are not in any way transparent. And if it works, I shall lose any vestige of faith in the human race.

The difference is that a government can order a MSM corporation to not publish the documents under national security laws.

They can't do this to wikileaks they are not licensed by said governments. That is the difference.

I for one though am very thankful for Wikileaks; they have created a crack in the wall of secrecy that enslaves our civilisation.

Every man in the entire world has tried to court a female, young or old, while misinterpreting the girl's intentions. Or felt lonely, and went a little too far into the self-indulgence of "the crush". Every man, no exceptions. Every single man on the face of this Earth has "dirt" on him from embarrassing false love-affairs. Women too.

It is appalling, that this is considered normal fare in the world today. To make fun of men as "less of a man" for showing private correspondence. It truly sickens me.

Shall we now display private correspondence and videos of our sexual prowess in job resumes to prove we are indeed sexually invincible?

Really? This is not even anything important, as much as I think the guy is a creep and dislike him, this is just asinine. Typical media gossip is all I see in this escapade. Anything for a story anymore it seems.

I haven't gotten involved in any of the Wikileaks stuff, but this thread caught my eye. I can't believe people are making this out to be stalker-ish or creepy. It sounds like he was smitten with a lovely young woman. And her impression?

Today Elizabeth says she never felt threatened by Assange's behaviour. 'I don't think he's a bad person,' she said. 'He's just a funny bugger.'

I've had some men be pretty persistent in their pursuance of me throughout my life... I don't see anything creepy or stalker-ish about these emails or actions at all.

My point is...

The only thing they can go after Wikileaks for is releasing the documents.. The MSM released ALL of the very same documents..

If he is guilty.. So are they! Period!

Even the ultra-right Daily mail readership aren't bothered by this story...check the ratings of the posts beneath the story. Tbh, I'm surprised by the response in Assange's favour!

Although I never knew he was such an elitist snob, his advances make him look more foolish than anything sinister. 33 and 19 isn't very unusual and certainly nothing to be ashamed of.

Yes I agree with you.

The point I was trying to make was that the MSM like the Guardian and NYT can only publish the leaks they are allowed to. This is just the tip of the iceberg and Wikileaks has the potential to publish the material in any way they choose redacted or not. That is why they are being persecuted and the MSM are not.

It is not fair, it is not right but it is the reason. It is highly likely in my opinion that there are a number of very powerful individuals who could be implicated for criminal offenses if not crimes against humanity in the material that Wikileaks possess. So they have to try and stop it at all costs.

The irony is this tactic is opening peoples eyes to the real state of our 'free' press and they don't like what they see, so they are rallying around wikileaks.

The only course of action that TPTB have left is to discredit Julian Assange and Wikileaks. If they do anything more extreme then there will be a public outcry and a backlash.

At least all he did was get wordy. I hear it could've been a lot worse.

Seriously though, is he a rapist or a hopeless romantic?

well i guess this should be fair game
but minus the spin
after all wiki is releasing emails and cables of others
he should expect the same thing

interesting thing is this
if she really liked him she might have ended up as mrs assange
because it went no where its wrong?
this is used to change public opinion?

so far i have seen no posts condeming a crush
i guess its because we all understand how complecated it can be
so judge not lest ye be judged

i guess the girl got her 15 mins of fame huh?

I agreed with the sentiment that Assange is being "set-up" by the MSM (TPTB, whatever..)
It's just extraordinary the lengths TPTB will go to in order to discredit and smear a person that is unfavorable in their view...

What's important here are not the facts. Only that evey possible means be employed to ensure that people never - EVER feel they can 'relate' to Mr. Assange.

Please remember - these are politicians and their associates that are directing the media - their tools and methods are as old and transparent as is their propensity to think themselves superior.

Many expect that if they can make editorial adjustments to the media 'news' stream, repeatedly evoking the "rape" charges (and his affinity for entanglements with doting females), they can force the perception that he is not like "you and me" and threfore, his motivations must be alien to us. They will continue to engender the image you've been seeing until they are confident that he has no "popular" support.

I still think it is a mistake on their part; but their 1950's mentality insists that any threat to them must be identified with a personality they can villify... sort of like thinking that World War II was about Hitler, and not the party he led along with many other marginally human actors.

Soon they will begin the Madison Avenue smear tactics anew, especially as the news eventually sinks in that the Wikileaks may have been 'trading' with the MSM for quite some time, and that there is the possibility that Mr. Assange may have secretly been profiting from the connections. But for now that is just unsubstantiated rumor... and is likely to remain so as long as media companies are set on having their cake and eating it too.

Of course, because of the power of the establshment to usurp the press for its purposes, and the fact that it has done so liberally for it's own self advancement, they are now faced with actually having to 'rewrite' laws so they can pick and choose who they can persecute/prosecute and who is - sigh - 'above the law.'

I was waiting for the other shoe to drop and here it is.

After reading the cables released I felt like I was back in junior high when little Mikey brought in his sisters diary and we all had a good laugh at the inner working of a teenage girls mind and her being emarrassed by it.

Now we get to see the inner workings of Mr. Assange's mind (albeit a fw years ago and the legtimacy is still in question).

That is all this is to me. Its Mikey's sister retaliating for reading her diary by trying to embarrass everyone else.

Lets see her responses to the emails, I need to ge more of this sophomoric tale.

Without a doubt Assange has some "shady" connections and people in low places; the question is whether or not that man is financially supported by sects of the MSM/TPTB.

Also without a doubt Assange is a highly intelligent man that is playing chess with the world... and I think he sees a checkmate coming.

Assange denies knowing detained U.S. Army specialist..

Is it just me or is it weird that this woman kept emails dated 6 years ago from someone who at the time was a complete nobody? Anybody else keep their emails around that long? I know I sure don't.

posted on Dec, 17 2010 @ 10:55 AM
I know I have long forgotten email addresses; in fact I've got a netzero address I haven't used in YEARS and the log-in still works.. and I've still got all those damned emails from the past.

It could simply be an issue of the lady remembering Assange and their connection and deciding that *this* is the time come forward, esp now that he's on bail....

"Gawker claims"

who cares what they claim? Their claims arent worth anything, mere days ago they claimed "stupid script kiddies" couldnt hack their site, see how that turned out?

This is really sad. That creaking sound is the bottom of the barrel being scraped.

I was kind of on the fence about the guy personally. But the more these desperate smears and legal gymnastics persist the more I think he is exactly what he appears to be. A geek who has found purpose in a moral crusade as a hacker/journalist, and pissed off some people used to corruption, power and entitlement.

Not that personal opinion of the man is remotely relevant to the issue at hand. The issue at hand is wether our big corporate controlled media is still fit for its purpose in democracy. Based on the reporting so far, with the few notable exceptions the answer is a resounding no.

Its enough to make lazy middle aged me willing to become re-engaged with politics and I suspect i'm not alone. Its become clear that whats at stake is the future of democracy.
