Moreno dares not show his face. Why?

Posted by robertpriddy on April 2, 2009

CLICK ON THIS IMAGE TO SEE PHOTO OF MORENO – the ONE SINGLE photo which he for some reason is rather desperate to hide away.

Ever since shortly after he first appeared as a pro-Sai obfuscator (and saboteur of the International Sai petition with bogus and untruthful submissions and comments) in 2004, Gerald Joe Moreno has tried to hide his face and cover his tracks on the Internet. He posted his website via an Indian third party web service to make locating his server undiscoverable to non-technical Internet users. This was nonetheless traced to U.S. server lunarpages.com, where libelous websites by him are still hosted.

From the start Moreno posted a photo of my son Kai and me, which is my copyright. When asked to remove it he refused point blank with absurd excuses (see http://www.saisathyasai.com/baba/emails-kai-priddy.html) and soon set about viciously attacking my son (who is totally uninvolved with any Sai criticism) in web pages trawling every possible association he could trace, though my son had no part in the things he managed to find remotely related, such as through a band in which he used to perform decades ago. Moreno uses photos of me and my son without permission despite our requests of removal. Yet he tries his utmost to get the one available image of himself removed!

Copy of Joe’s e-mail to K.R.D. Shepherd. It did not achieve the desired result.

When his photo was posted on the web by the scholar he has attacked vitriolically – Kevin Shepherd – he complained in an e-mail and said he would contact Shepherd’s server to remove it. He did not succeed. Recently, after Moreno continued his graphic attacks on me, such as by manipulating my image in cartoon fashion – a penchant of his and not the kind of thing any or defender of ‘spirituality’ or decent ‘researcher’ would ever do – which he fatuously claims to be (he is just an Internet trawler). Therefore I considered it meet to post his photo so that people – not least Sai Baba devotees – could see with whom they may be dealing. I did so on wordpress.com, knowing that it is possible to get wordpress to remove copyright materials (for which they have a singular honour, since Google has not complied with many proven requests). Since I received an infringement notification from wordpress.com that some blogs of Moreno on wordpress had been removed at my request, I fully expected Moreno to complain against me in tit-for-tat fashion as usual, and he did! Mark of wordpress.com mailed (18 March 2009) to warn me that the person in the image I used several times had complained and asked for its removal! So far I have not complied… Moreno claimed that he had been asked to remove the blogs in question, and that had done so himself (not admitting any wrong doing, of course), but the infringement notice made very clear he had NO OPTION. (More on this later)

sathyasaibaba, Munchausen and sick fantasies

Posted by robertpriddy on April 2, 2009

Gerald Joe Moreno and the Munchhausen syndrome. More comic relief for curious readers from Mr. Moreno in the form of this:-

joemunch

Provoked by being called a proxy defender of Sathya Sai Baba and his Organization, which he most certainly is according to much English common usage, Joe Moreno sought succor in his accustomed on-line dictionary definitions. Checking this, the word ‘proxy’ yielded, among much else, the Munchhausen syndrome. So – this would-be budding amateur psychiatrist [without any qualifications] must have thought – ‘I can just as well imply strongly that Pittard and Priddy are suffering from that’, but I shall not say so outright’. So this self-proclaimed “researcher” and “neutral observer” Joe Moreno, again avoided any factual evidence pro or con and creatively made another of his under-achieving schoolboy-level taunts.It is almost superfluous to point out his total lack of balance, insight, consistency and honesty… it glares everywhere at all but (Sai-) blinded readers from his own pages.

Munchhausen was a famous literary fabulator of fantastic claims and stories. One must admit, however, that he was nowhere near Sathya Sai Baba in the magnitude and falsity of his claims (no one who lived ever was) and perhaps not even as inventive as some Sai followers in their fantasy-packed perceptions, interpretations and beliefs.

Moreno’s technique of debate shows itself to be, that – having almost nothing true or tenable to say, shout almost anything as loud and as often as possible (i.e. by Internet means)  – that way he may drown out the oppositions by shouting out that it is them who are shouting.

Further, Moreno has written that Robert Priddy, Barry Pittard and Brian Steel are all septuagenarians. Pittard is not yet 70 by a long shot. With his boast of accurate research and making mountains out of molehill errors of this kind, Moreno should be more careful. He is an ageist – having also called me ‘prematurely senile’ and ‘half-senile’ which – unlike Sathya Sai Baba now – I am most certainly not. He bases this on a few lesser slips of my pen. He makes many such errors – too many to waste time commenting on –  but never admits nor corrects his errors, while I always correct and admit my former errors in many blogs and pages. He claims that I never correct or admit anything… that is his technique all along. So….

What of Gerald Moreno’s psychological profile?
