Posting a Diary Entry

Daily Kos welcomes blog articles from readers, known as diaries. The Intro section to a diary should be about three paragraphs long, and is required. The body section is optional, as is the poll, which can have 1 to 15 choices. Descriptive tags are also required to help others find your diary by subject; please don't use "cute" tags.

When you're ready, scroll down below the tags and click Save & Preview. You can edit your diary after it's published by clicking Edit Diary. Polls cannot be edited once they are published.

If this is your first time creating a Diary since the Ajax upgrade, before you enter any text below, please press Ctrl-F5 and then hold down the Shift Key and press your browser's Reload button to refresh its cache with the new script files.


  1. One diary daily maximum.
  2. Substantive diaries only. If you don't have at least three solid, original paragraphs, you should probably post a comment in an Open Thread.
  3. No repetitive diaries. Take a moment to ensure your topic hasn't been blogged (you can search for Stories and Diaries that already cover this topic), though fresh original analysis is always welcome.
  4. Use the "Body" textbox if your diary entry is longer than three paragraphs.
  5. Any images in your posts must be hosted by an approved image hosting service (one of: imageshack.us, photobucket.com, flickr.com, smugmug.com, allyoucanupload.com, picturetrail.com, mac.com, webshots.com, editgrid.com).
  6. Copying and pasting entire copyrighted works is prohibited. If you do quote something, keep it brief, always provide a link to the original source, and use the <blockquote> tags to clearly identify the quoted material. Violating this rule is grounds for immediate banning.
  7. Be civil. Do not "call out" other users by name in diary titles. Do not use profanity in diary titles. Don't write diaries whose main purpose is to deliberately inflame.

Please begin with an informative title:

Before my first diary in which I outlined how he reneged on a wager he lost to me on the outcome of his "UnSkewed Polls," Dean told me that he had emailed me for the last time. But since posting that diary, and since the flurry of tweets and (I assume) emails to Dean that it has prompted, Dean has resumed emailing me fast and furiously.

It seems we hit a nerve!

Dean has now called my activity "illegal" a total of twenty-four times, and has now threatened to have me arrested and "extrodited" (sp) to Virginia a total of five times.

About the lawyer who evidently had a sex change: Dean claims to have worked with TWO lawyers! Gasp! He has also threatened to get a lawyer in a law firm in my own home town! A search of the relevant firm websites, however, revealed that they are all participants in a pre-paid legal services scheme. I told Dean that this kind of thing is a borderline scam and that he continues to use it at his own peril, but I don't think he's inclined to listen to me. He's also now claiming that I don't owe him anything because Wellman is (at present) not my legal name, but a pseudonym. Work that one out for yourself, if you can. Suffice it to say that I have provided Dean all the information the law requires me to give to validate his debt to me.

It would appear that Dean is, after all, worried about his reputation. So let me say this: if and when he pays the $1046 he owes me, I will shout from the mountaintops that Dean Chambers has made good on his debt, and will do so with the same volume with which I now say he has reneged.

For now, the fact remains that he is doing everything he can think of to convince me -- or perhaps convince himself, and his relationship with reality is tenuous enough that he may think it's the same thing -- that he doesn't owe me what everyone knows he would have taken from me if our situations were reversed. I'm not impressed. Are you?

Dean Chambers can be reached at dcatqstar@yahoo.com. His Twitter username is @qstarnews. (This information is posted on his website.)
