I think it's dissapointing, honestly, that Adam chose to take this route. He should learn more from Jacob Hiller. There was a lot of stuff on this site about Jacob but he came here, talked, even made a dunk video. That was pretty cool. Sure, we all had different views and opinions, but still - it was a good discussion.

This!
Hiller had the balls ( or brains? or good marketing advice? doesn't matter! ) to come here and be a part of the thread calling his product "The derp manual" and reply to sarcastic comments offending him directly.
Regardless of the result ( he didn't convince anyone about squatflex and spamming ) he gained this little community's respect, without really needing it, his product is already well established and the most profitable in the market.
Adam LickMyBoner's way is actually coward , he is what we call here "dumbsmartass" ( aka an idiot that thinks he is smart and uses indirect techniques to get what he wants ).



Also , i'm with LBSS and clitzyc24.
Common sense right =/= legal right.
Maybe even mentioning his name was indeed a terms of use violation so he rightfully took the site down.
Do we believe he has nothing valid legal against you ? sure!
Do we respect you for standing up and reacting as you did ? FUCK YES!
Just make sure your steps are stable...

thank you, jc, for your priceless judgment. your legal acumen and incisive personal insights are literally without peer on adarq.org.

i'm just saying that, in my admittedly limited experience, the way the law works in this country is often very fucking stupid, and nobody knows that better than lawyers.

I believe in transparency and free speech. Here's what we have so far:


Email from Adam Linkenauger's Legal Representation:




My response:




My Good God! This really hit the spot!!!! Hahahaha. The filipino people cheer for you, adarq! I now despise that gay scammer. he didn't add any inch on my vert. I just (almost) wasted my time!

I certainly don't think this is a lawyer.  It's very unprofessional.

Quote
Our lawyer has your contact information and will be in touch shortly, because we have provided him your contact information.

1) It should be "we have provided him with your contact information"
2) The 2nd half of the sentence is redundant.
3) If they have "provided him your contact information" then obviously this email is not coming from the lawyer  (although they want you to reply to this address).

Quote
...until you have receiving notification from our lawyer.

4) Grammatical error.

5) What kind of sign off is this?  Doesn't say who is actually sending the letter and what their role is with the company.  Perhaps whoever wrote it was just too gutless to sign their name to it (although with all the errors in it I would be ashamed to claim it too).

Quote
The contents of this email are not the be published...

6) There goes the grammar again.

Quote
This email and any files transmitted with it are confidential and intended solely for the use of the individual or entity to whom they are addressed...This message contains confidential information and is intended only for the individual named.

7) Redundancy again.

Quote
If you have received this email in error please notify the system manager...Please notify the sender immediately by e-mail if you have received this e-mail by mistake...

8 ) So are you supposed to notify the system manager or the sender?

9)  Why does he switch from using "email" to "e-mail" half way through?

Quote
...any action in reliance on the contents...

10) Doesn't make sense.

exactly, i just died laughing at your dissection of that email..

my hunch is, it's adam himself behind legal@vertfreak. I would imagine if he approached a real lawyer with these accusations, then shows them his "proof", a real lawyer would laugh at him and say he has no case.

Hiller is smart. He provides a lot of free information,comes to all the sites to clarify himself, while in the same time make Jump Manual everywhere and send a few emails promoting TAQ and stuff. I say he is a good guy. But i am so sure about the marketing of Jump Manual. Its not as bad though. NOT as bad as Linkenfapper. I don't know. Adam makes ok programs and good information, but many things he does are just retarded.

Reading the email, he never claimed to be a lawyer. Although if he claimed to be a lawyer to the hosts in order to get the site removed then you have something.
I don't lift for girls, I lift for guys on the internet



[7:31pm] adarq: ripp, being honest, it's hard for u to beat jcsbck, he's on fire lately
[7:31pm] adarq: he's just
[7:31pm] adarq: wrecking people
[7:31pm] adarq: daily




Say NO to Maroko

And also NO to anyone who associates with him. No Taylor Allan. No Adam Scammenauger. No Kelly Baggett. No Elliot Hulse. No Jtrinsey. NO JUMP USA


Don't PM me asking me training questions. I'm here for the lulz. If you want help, post on the forums and get help from all the members, maybe even me.

would bluehost or any other host's that closed the site down be willing to forward the email they received from adam then we can see.

Reply to that email and request why you have not been able to get in touch with the lawyers.

bluehost is ignoring me, CFRhost and myself are trying to get the DMCA from dimenoc or "datahouse", who is also ignoring us.

i've approached them respectfully in plenty of emails, asking for the DMCA and any emails sent to be forwarded to myself, nothing.
