I happen to be a lawyer licensed in Washington State.  (I know, but please don't hate me!)  If Dayecon files anything in Washington (fat chance), let me know.  It would be fun to bit**slap him in court.

By the way, Dayecon is not listed with the Secretary of State as an LLC.  For $175, somebody could incorporate under that name and tell him to quit using it.  Actually, since intellectual property is not my area of expertise, I'm not sure how it would work if he was using the name as a dba first, but its a funny idea, you gotta admit.

I would, except Dayecock is such a queer sounding name, I would have to have it associated with myself....

You're absolutely right.  I much prefer "Nightcock", myself.  That is, in the context of naming a corporation...

By his logic, if I said "I feel Microsoft overcharges somewhat for its products," in this or any other forum, MS would be able to sue? Rather than trademark infringement, I think Dayecon might be able to sue for slander, since his fine reputation {gag} is being impuned upon.

I think we should send him an actual letter written on a lawyer's stationary, saying something contrary to his suit, or better yet, threatening to countersue for attempted First Amedment infringement. :twisted:

This kid is quite the winner.. :roll:

It's now set to "private."  :) I think we might have hurt his feelings ...

For those who missed it, DAYECON'S MySpace blog was about how stuff was, like, unfair and stuff ... and that, like, some stuff sucked ... and, like, you know, some other stuff sort of made him mad ... and, and, and ... it's all too much; I'm getting all emo.

I got depressed just reading it...I think I'm going to go take some drugs,  listen to some Smiths, and watch Trainspotting...... :cry:

Did those nightmares happen to be inspired by an Orson Scott Card short story with the baby on ceiling scenario?
That gave me nightmares for quite a while.  8O

I wonder if Dayecon has seen this one...or perhaps it is on the hidden MySpace page....

(sorry, couldn't resist...)

Idle speculation: I have a hunch DAYECONâ„¢ plans to begin selling again soon.

He appears to be winning a lot of auctions for small items, which is one recipe to both improve an overall feedback score and to knock any negs off the first page of your feedback (full disclosure: I've done the exact same thing).

Combined with the lame attempt to intimidate Foul with a pretend lawsuit filed by the Easter Bunny in Make-Believe County ... well, you can do the math.

Just speculation, though ...
