i reported the FB group as harassment, but (of course) Facebook didn't take it down. i'm in the process of reporting the post that has Colleen's personal info still in the edit history, and i get a thing saying "Is your friend in physical danger? If so, please report this threat to a local authority." should we contact the SFPD or something?

i'm opting to message Joe telling him to delete the post, but finding it tricky to navigate between too polite and too firm.

I'm hoping Colleen can start over. I would support her fully in anything that she would want to do.

I can't believe how douchey and inappropriately he is acting. He is obviously harassing her. Good riddance I say. She is SO much better off without that guy.

I can't believe that he can't see that the brand is dead. This is the kind of situation that you just back away from slowly and don't make a fuss about and then MAYBE you can get on with things in a year or two. But his childish behavior has just wrecked the reputation of the magazine completely. We're not talking Vogue here. There are no unlimited resources and people who can manage any public crisis here. We're talking a scorned crasshole trying to get his public vengeance on his ex and thus creating a public crisis. PATHETIC.

I hope that the whole legal issue gets resolved quickly and that Colleen can get on with her life.

Basically everyone is on Colleen's side. I'm sure this will get taken down soon if he has an brains?

I work full time in San Francisco (in a law office) and have had reason to report crimes (including harassment) to the SFPD. I hate to say this, but don't bother. Not even to create a 'record', because that won't happen, especially as you are not the victim (but probably even if you were the victim, too). The current state of the SFPD is shocking and disgusting.

I'd say your best course of action is to keep reporting it to FB and encourage as many others as you can to report it as well. I think it's in Colleen's best interest to get either a TRO or a Civil Harrassment Order (not sure which would apply since a TRO is for family/relationships and a CHO is for workplace harassment and this is in the part of the venn diagram where those two overlap), after which a judge can rule on a more specific order preventing him from these shitty tactics. But that's something only Colleen can do herself, and if the prospect of a ruling against him isn't enough to scare Joe into knocking this shiitake off, best of luck to her getting the SFPD to enforce the court order.

ETA: because I'm paranoid, I want to clarify I am NOT a lawyer. I work as a secretary in the law office, and this is not legal advice. It's merely my personal experience/opinion!

clearly the people signing the petition are not the people reading or writing the comments on the Facebook page. still, it's disappointing to see some of the signers chiding Colleen for *her* bullying tactics.

i was wondering if we could somehow get MoveOn to do something about the petition... does it violate the non-commercial aspect of the TOU? http://petitions.moveon.org/terms.html

There are only 345 names on that petition right now. Given their subscriber base and the number of people on their social media pages, it's a pretty small number. And as with any internet petition, what's really the point? Are they going to email a pdf of it to Colleen and lawyers? I think it makes their position look pretty weak.

I'm so sickened by Joseph thinking VN is even a thing without Colleen (and Elizabeth). NOT A THING.

I've been following along this and can't believe the whole website / let's attack Colleen thing. I don't know how anyone can support him, but I think once people hear the whole story, they would be on Colleen's side. I don't know who he got to pose in that photo with him...who would do that! The whole thing is just wrong. I wanted to unlike the Vegnews Facebook page, but I kinda want to stay on there just so I can see what happens...what an awful man!

They're the women he hired to create a new staff with. I am sad for them because they probably feel like amid all his craziness is a nice job opportunity supposedly spreading the news about something they're passionate about.

I checked out the vegan shop in Berkeley (Republic of V) and decided to pick up a newsstand copy of VegNews. Who knows, it might be a collector's item. /sad

The court website says Colleen's request that an independent 3rd party be appointed to oversee the VegNews finances was granted. Yay!

An August 2014 issue is out. What's up with that? What happened to Colleen and the case?

New court date isn't until January. Joe's already been found in contempt of court on multiple counts, sounds like he's going for more!

I think the explanation was that they were allowed to sell the issues on newsstands but they couldn't mail them to subscribers? I remember that being said by Joe somewhere in his plea for people to harass Colleen.

I got the summer copy even though I started asking for my subscription to be cancelled months ago, and was told it was finally cancelled several weeks before it arrived. It's HORRIBLE. It's just... so bad. So, so bad.

I saw it on the shelves at Superstore and just stood there glaring at it.

It looks like it is finally coming to an end. I'm glad Colleen's company owns all of the assets now.

I'm SO happy for Colleen that this ugly saga has come to an end! And I hope to never hear that other name again. Ugh.
