Other People

Every so often, someone contacts me about Blinkoncrime and Shannon Stoy. Another person dragged through the mud.

It’s always the same thing. Someone sharing their experience, and thanking me for the information and posting I’ve done.

It’s bad enough that horrible things happen to people. Even worse, in a time of darkness, it’s very upsetting to find yourself assailed by crazy people on the internet. Questioning the things you say, digging into your personal life, coming at you and writing things about you as though they are half brained arm chair detectives with nothing better to do than spend their days harassing strangers via the internet.

Although you tell yourself that this is the case, that these people are ill informed, lonely, irrational and thoughtless, it’s still upsetting to read the things they write about you. The mountain of inane idiocy simply compounds the trauma you’ve been through.

I’m glad that, in the middle of that, I can be a slight solace to people. It’s a piece of comfort to start looking around and find out that you aren’t alone, that others have been through the same thing, with the same person. It’s truly not you, it’s her.

The latest story I heard was of Shannon Stoy harassing someone via social media, and disseminating misinformation. An upsetting and common story. One I hear regularly.

When I first read the moronic things that she’d made up about me, I was primarily angry that a reporter had written an article about me without contacting me first for my side of the story. Then, as I dug, I discovered that Shannon Stoy is far from a reporter, and that talking about people without considering anything other than her own sensational and ill informed narrative, is her forte.

So I compiled that information and made it easier to find for people.

It’s nice to get that feedback, to know that it has been effective.

Rolling Stone, Brian Williams and Blinkoncrime

Rolling Stone magazine recently retracted it’s expose on a sexual assault at a college campus. It seems their fact checking wasn’t up to standards, and after some scrutiny they retracted.

Brian Williams, a well known network talking head, is currently off air because of inconsistencies in his recounting of his time in a war zone.

When I hear mention of those two things in mainstream media, it always makes me think of Shannon Stoy and her libel factory, Blinkoncrime.com. The key difference being, S. Christina Stoy never retracts, never corrects, never adjusts. It is hilarious to me that a person who possibly aspires toward journalism would leave such obvious evidence of low integrity and journalistic aptitude laying around.

But there it is. Search her website and the internet and it’s plain as day : She has a blatant disregard for the truth. It made me laugh when I first started looking into her, after she smeared my name across the internet. She has published under several names. Shannon Stoy, S. Christina Stoy, Christina Stoy, Blink. As I read more and more accounts by people with stories like mine, I couldn’t help but get the feeling that she was running from her reputation.

Journalists retract and correct. Blink changes her name.

A New School Year Has Begun

A whole new group of parents, meeting the special education resource teacher for their child. Maybe Googling her name.

 

And finding an article with her name tagged at the top about the disappearance of a little girl. Something she had nothing to do with.

 

Shannon Stoy doesn’t care about that. One of the first results under my spouse’s name on search engines is an article plagued with mistakes and libel. The author is fully aware of both the mistakes she’s made and the impact it’s had on lives, but she simply doesn’t care.

My spouse is a wonderful woman, who’s dedicated her life toward the teaching and mentoring of children, who works directly with the underadvantaged and learning disabled. S. Christina Stoy doesn’t care about, doesn’t care that she is harming her professional reputation. That she is casting a shadow with lies.

Christina Stoy might say that I’ve done the same to her, with my campaign online. The difference is, everything I’ve said is true and grounded in fact. Christina Stoy is the culprit of a libelous article with mistakes intended to cast suspicion on me. And in turn, by tagging her name, my spouse.

My spouse had nothing to do with a child’s abduction. She has a letter from police clearing her of wrongdoing and praising her actions. She was never a suspect in any crime to begin with.

She is only tagged in the Blink on Crime article for two reasons.

 

1. She is my spouse, and because I left my house voluntarily to search for a lost girl, I have put her in the spotlight.

2. Christina Stoy is heartless and unscrupulous.

It breaks my heart that the woman I love is so tarnished because of me. While I didn’t do anything wrong, and was merely acting in the best interest of a lost child, that action brought on the sensationalism of Blink on Crime.
