SMC SMEAR CAMPAIGN AND EXTORTION

Comments During "Settlement Negotiations" By Attorney Robert Sammis on April 21, 2006
"The reaction you're going to get from most administrators in any institution is you're a
student. We'll take care of that. You're a student. Your blog reflects some of that kind
of 'I know better how to run this organization than they do.' It does. That's an element
of what you have in there."
"You can help a lot by taking individuals off of the blog. I don't care if you criticize the
policy of the college or criticize what the Academy is doing academically. There's a whole
list of people on there.... but the usuals. Obviously people like Katharine [Muller] in the
picture and things about Judy [Penchansky]... We don't get to pick and choose. We need to
ratchet down the conflict by doing these things. I don't care if you criticize how the
disciplinary process is done here."
"There are companies who believe that you have unfairly put them in false light on your blog.
I'm not going to tell you who they are. They have contacted us. These folks are talking with
attorneys. They are not going to sit by. For you, there is an interest in bringing resolution
"If we can work out an agreement where there is an understanding of how people are going to
conduct themselves, then I have no interest in moving forward with the suspension. The college
has no interest. The purpose of the suspension is to get people to conform to certain conduct."
Comments By SMC Professor & Game Club Advisor
Howard Stahl During SMC Faculty March
(April 25, 2006)
"It is not appropriate. Do you know any other students like yourself
who are writing letters to the school and have meetings with
Robert Sammis and hire attorneys and all the things you've done?"
"Ask me the last time I ever had a student who had a meeting with the attorney from the school
or even knew his name and the answer is never. So I mean you know like in the big grand scheme
of things, obviously what you do, or how you do it, or why you're doing it bothers a great
number of people. Not just me, but countless, countless other people. Do you realize the
amount of effort and to what gain? ... To what end is all of this effort?"
"I mean like for students that are not doing the things you are doing, you could probably
participate in the club. ... There are a great number of people who are actively working
to try to have you suspended.... They're trying to suspend you because of a lot of things
you have done."
So, why is SMC allowed to violate my student rights since May 23, 2006?
Suspension of Disbelief ...
