That Time I Was Accused of Stealing Someone's "Sh*t"
So THIS happened Sunday night, and I thought I'd share it. Last evening someone sent me a video post on Facebook of someone who goes by the name Lucien Black who was claiming that I stole his sh*t. His accusation lacked specificity, but he's a self-styled firearms/self-defense instructor, and I teach use-of-force law, so there was apparently some overlap there that he found offensive.

Did Mr. Black claim a property right in the word analysis? It seems so.
In any case, I was bored so I thought I'd object to Mr. Black's allegation of intellectual property theft. I did so using Facebook messenger, as that was the only ready means I to with which to communicate with him. That exchange went like this:
This was also covered and commented upon extensively, and humorously, right on Facebook, which you can view by clicking here.
