  1. I am writing to you,because I believe that I was a part of a sadistic study. I was a guinea pig due to speaking up about a horrid thread that ensued @ Rape by The I Fucking Love Science site. Initially, it began as a harmless meme- @ the Sun ;) & Vitamin D! I have been called naive, for example I hadn’t a clue “I’m gonna give you the D whether you like/want it or not” has reference to porn! I have written, called, gone around as a “the Trickster” (curses), & I will continue until ..I get some type of answer! If it weren’t for every aspect of my life being invaded, I wouldn’t be seeking assistance. You are listed, so here I am .. The other assholes (pardon) just ruin my work & fiddle with my radio which is utilized a lot because I am a fitness professional. … NOONE will get in touch & I’m real serious @ my rights being invaded! I have only passed this by 1 lawyer.. In hopes that everything would subside due to the bait they used (chief beautiful)! Luckily, there are 2 more lawyers whose wives I’ve worked with & help me to see perspective (law) as needed, esp. being a minute business in cahoots with larger corps.
    Thanks for your consideration & effort to communicate with me on this.. Looks as if your holding down a big fort! ;) Nakia Bailey aka CRAZYLEGS!
