Here at the Internet Chronicle we rarely, if ever, receive hatemail thanks to our impeccable human rights record. It seems, however, that two articles have upset a famous lawyer who is widely known for being a “highly intelligent, highly educated, very personable, very caring, good person,” or at least that’s how Sue Basko characterized herself after sending us a battery of insulting e-mails.
I’ve seen the Rustle League torment this “lawyer,” something I took no part in, and they now use a “Basko” as the standard unit for measuring easy trolling targets. In one satiric article, I did write up a quick caricature of Basko and clued in readers that it was a joke by changing her name to “Brasko.” In another article about her “client,” Aaron Bale, Basko’s connection to a very strange press release is given a skeptical glance. One update to this article included information taken from a chat log attributed to Bale, which may or may not be legitimate, and after a complaint from Basko I included an extra disclaimer. That wasn’t enough. Basko went into full hate mode. Her email has been included in blockquotes, and my email response is in italics.
DEFAMATION REMOVAL DEMAND// LEGAL ACTION WARNING
CHRONICLE: THIS MUST BE REMOVED IMMEDIATELY in full:
IF IT IS NOT, YOU WILL FACE LEGAL ACTION. You have been warned twice already.
Also, your “publication” must remove any and all mention to me and to any of my clients, including Aaron Bale. Your publication must remove all falsehoods and garbage in which I am called “Sue Brasko,” and fake photos of me are posted.
The “writer” “Kilgoar” is not a good writer, posts lies, posts defamation (insulting lies). This “article” is filled with nothing but defamation. Much of it is defamation per se, meaning it is such bad defamation on its face that damages are assumed.THIS ARTICLE ALSO ENGAGES IN OBSTRUCTION OF JUSTICE against Aaron Bale. “Kilgoar” is posting lies intentionally, trying to interfere with an FBI / NSA investigation.
IN addition, this sick person “Kilgoar” has engaged long term in a hate and lies against me and my clients and those I assist.
This person MUST CEASE AND DESIST. YOUR “PUBLICATION,” ITS OWNERS, ETC CAN BE SUED FOR DEFAMATION AND OTHER CAUSES OF ACTION BASED ON THIS.IN ADDITION, we are filing criminal complaints against “Kilgoar” for posting links to false IRC chats and now for posting falsehoods against Aaron Bale.You are allowing a mentally disturbed, demented, unprofessional, dangerously deceitful person to write for you.
Please understand that I amended the article with all pertinent information after you claimed these were false IRC logs. Remember I never framed them as true to begin with. It would be unreasonable, and in fact irresponsible, for me to dismiss these chat logs altogether. As for “falsehoods against Aaron Bale,” you haven’t named any specific things you’d like me to look into or possibly fix. I will not respond to bullying like this, as you have no interest in correcting any possible mistakes or even mentioning them — you just want to scare me into taking the article down with no legal basis.
PLEASE NOTE: We have received extortionate emails and are having those traced. We strongly suspect those came from “Kilgoar.” The FBI is also investigating those emails, because it is a person trying to create an obstruction of justice.THERE IS NO ONE ELSE TRYING TO INTERFERE WITH AARON BALE, other than “Kilgoar.” This same sick person “Kilgoar” also attempted to meddle in the case of “Aaron Socio.”
I’ll get you, and your little dog, too! What a world, what world! [Basko then melts]

I am called upon regularly to assist both nationally and internationally with situations involving media, internet, and the law.The fact that you need to tell lies about this, and smear me, shows what you are about. And it isn’t good.When you mock and lie about a good, helpful intelligent person – -that does not make you look smart. It makes you look bad, unhelpful, and stupid – - which is how everyone views you. You are what you do, and that is what you do.– Susan Basko, Lawyer
