Greeting ladies and gentlemen to this ground breaking first ever trial here in ET. When 3 or more people accuse another person for more then 3 days of being a troll or other mendacious behavior, the case is brought hereâ¦ The Troll Court, under all rules and regulations of Macropus Court. Proceedings will start soon in the case of LongandStrong, aka Shlap, aka Trader28. The judge speaks in all capsâ¦ not that heâs yelling, just so he is distinguished from the lawyers and juryâ¦. Ohâ¦ its startingâ¦ âAll rise, for the honorable Judge lilduckling, first case, docket #0001TT. The people vs. longandstrong, aka, schlap, aka trader28, charged with 1 count of being a troll, and 3 counts of underhanded trickery. Charges: 1. Being a troll 2. Editing a post in order to trick newbies 3. Editing a post to save face with peers. 4. Lying about making money on a trade made public. THANK YOU BAILIFF, PLEASE BE SEATED EVERYONE. COUNCELLOR, YOU CLIENT IS PLEADING NOT GUILTY TO THESE CHARGES, IS THAT CORRECT? Yes you honor. Your honor at this time the defense would like to file a motion to have this case dismissed. IN WHAT GROUNDS COUNCILOR? Contributory negligence in the part of the accusers. Your honor, their constant taunting and teasing is what led my client to be charged with counts #1 and #4. Furthermore, it was Spydertrader that produced the questionable evidence. My client is not responsible for trades made 30 minutes after his call. If the time frame donât fit, you must acquit . As of the sole evidence, the defense contends that it is not admissible due to mitigating factors in this case. If I may expand on that your honorâ¦.. IM GOING TO ALLOW IT, BUT IM WARNING YOU COUNCELOR, DO NOT TURN THESE PROCEEDINGS INTO A FARCE. Thank you your honor. Your honor, it has been well established that Spydertrader is a subsidiary of Jack Hersey or Grob enterprises.

COUNCILOR I WILL NOT LET YOU MAKE A MOKERY OF THIS TRIAL! MR HERSEY IS NOT ON TRIAL HERE, YOUR CLIENT LONGANDSTRONG IS. HOWEVER I DO NOT FIND ANY CREDIBLE EVIDENCE FOR COUNT #2.
