Hundred of thousands of crappy books come out each year, and Crash Override: How To Save The Internet From Itself by Zoe Quinn be one of them. Crash Override will be filled with lies, as Quinn is a con woman. That’s none of my concern, but Touchstone/Simon & Schuster legal had better read this article carefully.
Dear Simon & Schuster lawyers:
If you idiots lie about me in Crash Override I will sue you for defamation.
Zoe Quinn will lie. That’s a given. Zoe Quinn has an extensive history of lying. Quinn has lied about me repeatedly.
Quinn is going to lie in Crash Override:
- Zoe Quinn lied about me in a Congressional briefing.
- Zoe Quinn lied about being homeless.
- Zoe Quinn lied about her membership in a doxing forum called Helldump.
Go lie all you want. But do not lie about me, as I’ll sue you for defamation.
Is that bravado? Consider why people do not normally sue for defamation:
- They can’t afford a lawyer.
- The Streisand Effect will amplify negative messages about the person.
- The person they want to sue doesn’t have any money.
They can’t afford a lawyer.
I know a thing or two about defamation law and have even been a defendant (we won!) in a defamation lawsuit.
When a former NFL player and multi-millionaire threatened to sue me, I didn’t back off. I LOL’ed. Hard.

I’ll represent myself with the assistance of my international network of lawyer friends.
The Streisand Effect.
The Streisand Effect is not a concern. I believe in the free marketplace of ideas. Let’s get as much truthful information about me out to the world as possible. Let the people decide!
The liar doesn’t have any money.
Margaret Pless tried getting SWAT teams sent to my house. I did an asset search of her and her family to ascertain where they live and what property they own. She’s living off of a meager allowance from her daddy. Fortunately she’ll never have a real job as the Google results for her name expose her criminality and instability. I won without having to sue!
Touchstone/Simon & Schuster has deep pockets. You are worth suing.
A lawsuit against Touchstone/Simon & Schuster for Crash Override would vindicate my reputation while bringing me publicity and money.
Yes, I’ll sue you. Why wouldn’t I?
I’ll vindicate my reputation. Broke Internet trolls lie about me. What can I do? They aren’t worth my time. If you harm my reputation, you will be worth my time.
As an author myself, I understand the importance of publicity. A big lawsuit against a major publishing house for defamation would make headlines.
Some percentage of those people will buy my books.
Wait, there’s more!
I write for a living and much of my writing is about my life.
I’d “live blog” my defamation lawsuit, bringing me even more readers in the process.
It’s really a no-lose situation for me.
A lawsuit against you would be me massive amounts of publicity, vindicate my good name, and bring me money.
If you defame me, I will sue you.
You’re better off not mentioning me in the stupid book, Crash Override, at all.
While Eron Gjoni is not my client, he’s a rare person who should consider suing for defamation.
His reputation is already in tatters. The Streisand Effect isn’t going to harm him.
You’re a book publisher. You’re a great person to sue. You have assets.
While Gjoni cannot afford a defamation lawyer, who knows what the future may bring? Maybe a lawyer will assist him at a reduced price, or for a hybrid fee of an hourly rate + contingency fee in the case.
You never know.
Be careful what you say about Gjoni, too.
P.S. I’ve been under attack for over 13 months and can’t be stopped due to my Gorilla Mindset techniques. Read my book before getting yourself into a stupid lawsuit with a high-conflict writer.
Or not. The choice, as always, is yours.
