>>
>> 4) Mr. Mettin's claims that the PublicRoot Consortium does not exist are

>>
>> 5) Mr. Mettin's claims below that his schools only involvement with the

>>
>> But as members here have pointed out Mr. Mettin's forgot to mention that

>>
>> 6) Mr. Mettin's claims that my actions resulted in the shut down of a

>>
>> As a result of my actions fewer people ended up loosing their money in

>>
>> 7) Mr. Mettin's claims that I lie are also false, libelous, slanderous
