Well, with all the wonderfull entertainment going on, let’s give those viewers who have just tuned in an update on the who-is-who of some of the characters in all this …in the meantime: don’t touch that dial, and keep infotaining and entertaining us all!
(please not that I am note sure of all the characters involved and just tried to piece together some of the obvious characters)
Albert (that’s me): One of the people that have been at the receiving end
of GLOSSIKA’s practises. For obvious reasons I am a
bit careful about disclosing my complete address
details at this moment, but will do so as soon as
Iron Lady: : Having the same family name (and character) as the
former first Lady of Downing Street, Terry Thatcher is
one of the best-known and qualified translators and
interpreters in Taiwan, as well one of the most
outspoken Segue moderators. She has been
slandered, raided, and dragged to the tax office as a
result of a certain party on this forum.
Little Iron: Another avocat of honest freelaning and honest work.
This person’s name also appeard on GLOSSIKA’s
hitlist, delivered by registered mail to the owner of this
website. It seems however that the folks at GLOSSIKA
haven’t quite figured out Little Iron’s real identity. To
my knowledge this is a independent entity though, and
a regular and respected contributor to the forum.
“Jay”: A high-quality translator who has also appeared on
GLOSSIKA’s hitlist. However, this person has stated
clearly that he has never worked for GLOSSIKA. (only
decided against working for them after checking their
“Peter”: Another hitlist member who has been keeping a low
profile, staying up the mountain, till this situation has
played itself out.
Gus: Owner of this website (as is obvious). A very honest,
community-oriented and straightforward person who
found himself at the receiving end of one of
GLOSSIKA’s “Pending Lawsuit Notification”
(quote/unquote) letters, in which he was threathened
with legal action of he would not comply with
IMS: A legally-registered Taiwanese company which seems
to have had some contact with GLOSSIKA in the past.
Obviously not so anymore. Only one post of IMS was
found, responding to an accusing posting of a third
Marc T. (of MTI): Two posts so far as far as I can see. It seems IMS is
the registered Taiwan subsidiary or affiliate of MTI
Communications. Accusations were made against MTI
and Marc T. has responded to defend his company
(IMS and Marc.T (of MTI) are one and the same???)
GLOSSIKA: The reason all this has started. This, according to
government records, is an illegal non-registered
company. They have threatened a number of people
and companies (some of which are listed above).
Their integrity seems a bit dubious from they way they
have worded their postings and have spammed the
forum. The threads speak for themselves.
James Campbell: = GLOSSIKA (aka Jim, Mike, Michael, Steven
Fiona Campbell: = GLOSSIKA (aka Monique, Irene, Emily, Binbin,
Liebling (Tiara-woman in some of the posts), Chu/Campbell Chan/Xa)
(there may be more aliases, so forgive me if I left a few out)
“I am Impressed”: Posted as guest, but looking at the tone of the
message, could this be another GLOSSIKA posting???
Please note that there are a number of other people and companies who have not participated on this forum yet, although a number of them have either been raided/treathened or not paid…
This list is not complete, so please do not feel offended if you’re not on this list…
