Goodbye to all here at the Shroomery
    #441348 - 10/30/01 12:29 AM (16 years, 1 month ago)

Hello to everyone here at this site.
Due to problems in my living situations and others concerning the attempted damage and erasing of many of my word files on my computer and such, as of January 31 I will be closing both of my web-sites permanently.

While in Southeast Asia, someone entered my place of living and broke into my computer, erased programs and passwords. I have had two computer repair companies agree that someone did attempt to disable my computer data and after spending money on this ($150.00 and more) I am also having living problems.

I have been asked to move.

Below is a short explanation of what has occurred since I have returned from Thailand and Cambodia.

XXXXXXXXXXXxGoodbye to the all of the members of the Shroomery, past and present, especially those who have supported me these past three years at various sites.

This will be my last post. After October first I will accept no orders for spores, t-shirts , batiks, cd-roms or books, etc.

Why:

Please read below.

Well to add to my problems of someone attempting to break into my computer while I was in Thailand, having erased passwords, deleted all of my word files; a broken Sao Lao Cambodian musical instrument, getting marched off of Alaska Airlines by the National Guard in San Francisco for refusing to put my instrument in an over head compartment, and after telling the flight attendant that if she broke it putting it in an overhead compartment that I would sue her, they took that as a personal threat and had the National Guard march me off the airplane in San Francisco. They actually taxied the plane from the runway back to the terminal and had the passengers wait about an hour or so to retrieve my luggage.

Making me fly on the next moring flight with a broken instrument because she jammed it into the overhead compartment.

By the way they did break the tuners on the strings instrument and chipped off a piece of it and the airlines refused to fix and/or repair it.

And now my manager is evicting me for complaining of no heat and no electricity on and off everynight because the wiring in the house is all on one line. I will be leaving the internet.

Ralphster from the shroomery and the florest floor has just purchased the last of my spores I am selling. I will put all of my belongings in a storage bin and move to another state. I have no computer to work with and most of my programs were deleted and/or missing off of the computer when I returned home, having spent more than $150.00 on three repairs which failed. And the repair people told me someone did attempt to get into the computer and that someone did mess with the pass words. Even the police cannot prove anything so I have no one to really file a complaint with since I was not here to know who did this too me. So It has been a fun three years with the web-sites. Both of my sites will be down after January 31, 2002 gone from the web. As That is when my bill is due and I no longer have funds to support these sites.

AS for the cd-rom books, a few copies are circulated, about twenty of the Art cd Rom and about ten pf the Bibliography so maybe copies could be made from those but even I have no more copies. ALl my other cd-rom product files on the history of psilocybian cultivation and the mushroom pioneers books are gone from my computer.

I cannot sell anymore products such as spores or t-shirts or batiks for now since I will not have a home after a few weeks. I told the manager it would take me a month and a half to move and they are hassling me about that. Telling me I to move in a week or so. By law I have to give thirty days notice to get my security deposit back but knowing the cheap owner who left us last winter with no heat while he and his wife went to Hawaii and then when they came home his attitude was, "well no one got frost bite."


The manager of my house, someone whom I thought I trusted and shared a lot of things with has turned into a real jerk. Part of the reason is that he wants my rooms to move into to after I move out because of the bay windows. Its too long of a story to bother anyone with. So I will probably not be able to answer much of anyones email after a few weeks.

I really cannot afford the $6.00 an hour from the Middle Eastern Copy Shop owners here in Seattle to the $24.00 an hour use at Kinkos. So orders received after October 31, this year will be returned to the senders
Goodbye and thanks for the support.

mj.

Well to add to my problems, my manager Clayton Schwartz, whom I even brought gifts back to from Thailand just had the police at my door. He asked for them to arrest me but they said my words of anger to him were protected under the first amendment.,

Then hee asked them for a restraining order and he said he wanted me out of the house in a week. Well, the police told him he has twenty days to serve me with a notice then I could actually stay for two or three months and fight it in court but I cannot afford to do this.

I have never had someone call the cops on me in my life and What kind of protection does one have against bullshit allegations of threats. First the airline trip and now the city cops.

They were actually very nice to me and saw no problem but told me Clayton had told them he is getting a restraining order against me and I will not be allowed to talk to any of the other people living in the house.

What a crock of shit.

My friend is letting me use his computer for a few minutes to post all of these messages.

Anyway, thanks again guys.

mj

Don't you want to move to Europe or something ? We don't have that stupid laws over here, the american system will die from its own ignorance i can tell you that. The Netherlands would be a nice place, you can start cultivating with no prob. I had some friends who went to work there for 3 years on the tulips fields (eg.), wages and conditions are very good! Think about it, if i didn't had a family of my own i would go there for sure.

Peace,
MAIA

MJShroomer:

You can probably fight this if you want to. I live in NY so I don't know the laws of Washington state. You can probably qualify for some type of legal aid for poor persons. These people are a landlord's worse nightmare. Like the cops said, if you get a legal aid lawyer you could probably stick around for a few months -- without paying rent! Eventually, you will have to leave and the landlord will get a judgment against you. But if you leave the state (even just the county) you will never have to deal with the judgment because they are usually indexed by County (at least in NY where I'm a lawyer). Any Washington state lawyers in here?

If I lived there I'd represent you for free. Think twice about giving up so easily. A legal aid lawyer could have this landlord going in circles (service of the eviction is very important for the Court's jurisdiction -- every thing must be done just right or it's dismissed). I wish I knew more about Washington law so I could give you more specific advice. If this landlord is doing his own evictions without the help of a lawyer he's probably making many big mistakes. Get a legal aid lawyer and he'll dismiss the eviction every time 'till the landlord gets it right.

As to the restraining order, in NY you won't get one unless you have been charged with some offense. Since the cops didn't arrest you or give you an appearance ticket your landlord won't be able to get a restraining order. The landlord is just fucking with your head about that.

Make this scumbag jump through some hoops before you pack it in!

MJ
I wasn't sure which forum you'd see first, but I'm cross-posting from FF.

We live out across the Narrows on the Peninsula....boonies....2+ acres..... fuck your landlord. You can come stay with us till you find a place If ya live in "the city" it is a commute, but, what the heck.

It just really sux when you have shit like this happen. Been in a similar situation.

I really hope things work out for you. Maybe FRANKtheFREAK is right. You should look into some type of landlord/tenant mediation or at least legal aide.We have good laws here in WA. but so much changes that you just never know tillyou ask someone about your rights. AND YOU DO HAVE RIGHTS!!
Let me know how it goes. WE can't have you being homeless!!!!NO WAY! I'm sure everyone would agree that is not cool.

Whoa! That hit me pretty hard, John!
It seems that many people try to fuck with your life. I am sorry to have had confrontations with you in the past, John. I was only being childish and wrong.
I hope you find a stable place to stay for now and wish to see you here at The Shroomery now and then.
You are the most important part of our team, John.
As always, Stay cool!-Levi7.
