While reading through a few other threads, some rather eccentric comments made by Jerry Duke were discovered that indicate he seems to believe that rules and laws involving slander and libel don't apply to him. Someone is posting under the user names Legal Eye and Wise One in the thread links below defending Duke while claiming no relation to him or his website but the poster somehow has a very detailed knowledge of Duke's life and operations. Hmmmm, judge for yourself.

Jerry Duke made the following statement on his own website when someone attempted to sue him for slanderous comments:
"Take a number... If I had a dollar for everyone person that threatened to sue us or threaten to get the IP of our members, etc.. I would be a rich man.

You might want to look up some case law... not going to happen.

We edit out what we find that is out of line. However, do not come on here and threaten anyone with lawsuits. The last person to try it is out lots of money because they had to pay for everything when it was all said and done.

So, like I said... take a number."

Assumptions of another topix fool. Everybody is Jerry Duke. My God, there is no way anybody could be siding with Duke.

Sorry slick, some of us are taking Duke's side because we hate you moronic topix flamers. You have absoulutely no sense of decency and the moral compass of a gnat.

Go beat up on your old lady some more and then kick your dog. You might start feeling like a real man again like all the other times you did it in the past.

Cya later Redneck!

Notice how neither poster, especially Legal Eye, did not mention one thing about that direct quote from Jerry Duke thumbing his nose at the law. I guess it's because there's not much that can be said about something so damning.

Boy you Topix people are so dumb! As a matter of fact, my Jerry IS above the laws, your "commoner" laws as in, you people are beneath us. The US Supreme Court wrote a special set of laws and constitution just for my Jerry and us, the RNW family. The US Postal Service even gave us our own zip code at the compound, I mean house. The sooner you all accept it, the better off you'll be. So join the RNW family and do what we say, when we say or get lost. JerrY! JerrY! JerrY!

In addition to thumbing his nose at the law, Jerry Duke just can't seem to make up his mind about what bothers him. I DON'T care what they say, I DO care, I DON'T care, I DO, I DON'T, I DO. Make up your mind Jerry. First you think you're above the law as described above and then you can't decide whether being exposed for what you really are bothers you or not. Which is it? Things ain't looking good for you right now with all this on again, off again behavior.

Here we do require user to register before they post...

Also, Back when someone was pretending to be RNW there.. I had a conversation with chris Tolles from Topix.

I told him that I would personally defend anyone's right to say anything they wanted to about RNW or what we write. I have no issue with that. My issue then was that someone was pretending to be me and saying awful nasty things.

They deleted that account and from what I am to understand, banned any form of the RomeNewswire name from registering.

I have no problem with Topix currently. They can say what ever they want about me, my site or what we report. That is their right and no one should ever be able to stop them.

Do I like some of the things they write? of course not... especially when they say things about my family or our members. What they do not understand is that these people here that they seem to hate so much would give you the shirt off of their back. They do not just say that, they have stepped up to the plate for others on several occassions.

So if there is anything that I have done to anger them and have them continusly berate us... well, I apoligize. And I ask others to please try and not get dragged into the threads over there.

However, in the long run... who am I to tell anyone where they can post or where they can not post.

Basically all we can do is continue to do what we do and press forward like we always do.

A lot of concern about JD's tax bills. Do you know for sure that he even owns these properties any longer? I know Floyd County is just so accurate with their tax records.(Not) I know this from personal experience. It took me three years to have my name off of tax bill in Floyd County after it had been sold. So trust me the records posted online aren't that accurate.

Even if it is accurate, is it really your business to post it all over a internet forum, I think not. Pure hatred and wanting to defame someone is your root cause.

If you were really concerned about people taxes you would definitely be posting about some of the commissioners and other news media people that owe takes in Floyd County.

You're very transparent. You just like to stir the pot and cause problems. Does it make you feel like a real man? More like a zit face little kid with nothing better to do with his time.

You need to listen to your daddy...boy!

I'm just saying.......

lol If those records were not accurate I am sure some fat ass wannabe reporter would do a story on Floyd County and their terrible web site! And yes slick, as a taxpayer myself it is my business and guess what dunce, it is public record so that info can be posted anywhere. Sorry you do not like it.

I bet if any does know it would be you. Oh wait, I forgot, you don't know "Mr Duke" personally, you're just a concerned citizen off the street taking up the cause for a "good man's" name.

So Legal Fly, after yet another post you've made, I see you have managed to NOT comment on not one but two direct quotes from Jerry Duke clearly demonstrating his arrogance and two faced ways. Cat got your tongue or is it still stuck so far and deep in Jerry's ass that you can't get it out? lol

lol Plus the fact that even if he did not own the property anymore, he would still be liable for any back taxes. This loser is not very smart. I see we are dealing with another mental midget. Thats two if you include gasir.

I am glad to see a few posters attempting to defend Jerry.This site is out of control and needs to be shut down. It is unbelievable the things that are said here. Nothing but lies and hatred. If you don't really know someone and truly don't know there personal business you should mind your own. Jerry Duke is a good man and a wonderful provider for his family. He has a heart of GOLD! Some like to point out that Jerry has foster children, that is incorrect. He has one foster child and if you understood the circumstances behind why he took this child in you would feel pretty bad about saying something about it. Thanks to those that are defending Jerry, it is greatly appreciated I can assure you.

So your saying Jerry does not owe back taxes and has not bought clothing form a guy who runs a sex shop. Are you saying those things are not true?
