A lawyer (or person claiming to be a lawyer) sent threatening letters to people who criticized a featured Etsy seller who they said was actually importing cheap furniture from Bali and passing it off as her own homemade goods. The legal threats were the work of a bumbling amateur, and drew a stupendous, blistering response from Kenneth P White, an attorney at Brown White and Newhouse LLP, who wrote on behalf of one of the threat-recipients.
I write books. My latest is a YA science fiction novel called Homeland (it's the sequel to Little Brother). More books: Rapture of the Nerds (a novel, with Charlie Stross); With a Little Help (short stories); and The Great Big Beautiful Tomorrow (novella and nonfic). I speak all over the place and I tweet and tumble, too.
